For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Illiterate Chicago Youth . . . Thx Paul C!

This was sent to me by a high school classmate by the name of Rev. Dr. Dave Gower, so there's no doubt about the validity of this statement.  I can't believe that a school system would allow this condition to exist.  This is a strong indicator as to why Chicago has so many illiterate gang-bangers walking the streets of Chicago.

If I remember correctly from the paper earlier this week, there were 57 people shot in Chicago over Christmas week-end, eleven of them died. 90% of those involved were on the list the Chicago Police have complied of individuals likely to be involved in violence, either as perpetrators or as victims. If the authorities could just get the people on that list off the streets, the violence problem would be mostly solved.

Get a load of this. The Englewood district of Chicago is one of the most violent areas of the city. An article in today's paper, talking about schools in Chicago, stated that there are just under 2,300 high school students living in the area served by and eligible to attend Robeson High School in the Englewood. By the 20th day of school this Fall attendance at Robeson High School was just 86! Where were the other 2,214 - playing hooky to hone their gang-banging skills. These kids are roaming around getting into trouble [Idle hands are the devil's workshop] and moving into adulthood without a basic education or any marketable skill. Like wild animals growing up in packs/gangs. THE BASIC PROBLEM IS THE PARENTS, OR LACK THEREOF.
