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.

Graduation in Detroit ... Thx Jack H and Sarah R!


Darqueeze played high school football in Detroit. He was a great
running back, but a really poor student.

At graduation, he didn't have enough credits.

But he was a great football star and the students held a rally and
demanded the principal give him a diploma anyway. They were so
insistent that the principal agreed that if Darqueeze could answer one
question correctly he would give him a diploma.

The one question test was held in the auditorium and all the students
packed the place.

It was standing room only. The principal was on the stage and told him
to come up. Diploma in hand, the principal said:
"Darqueeze, if you can answer this one question correctly I'll give
you your diploma."
"Darqueeze, how much is three times seven?"

Darqueeze looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes,
pondering the question.

The other students began chanting,

"Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!"

Then Darqueeze held up his hand and the auditorium became silent.  He said,

"I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."

A hush fell over the auditorium and then all the other students began to chant:
"Give him another chance! Give him another chance!"
