Joseph, regarding your conversion due to President Reagan: I, too, am a Lebanese/American. My father’s parents came from northern Lebanon in 1910. I was a Democrat until 1981 when Reagan changed my life. I hated America, but he made me see the “Shining City on the Hill.” I am now a God-fearing deacon in my Baptist Church, all due to my psuedo uncle President Ronald Reagan.
I have been watching the decline of the world for the last 40 years or so and have come to the conclusion that my heavenly Father is the most patient, loving being ever known.
The loudest of His children have purposely cut all ties with Him, preferring to claim their paternity from pigs and monkeys. This effectively proclaims to the world that they are true bastards in the original sense of the word.
They cry and moan and whine about the peace Christians find in their faith, preferring to think of us as “radical” and dangerous. When bad things happen, they cry, “How could a loving God allow this to happen? ... continue reading »
Members of Congress like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul appear to rejoice at the thought of not passing legislation on unemployment benefits. For these men it is wrong for anyone to receive unemployment benefits, food stamps, veteran benefits, or any kind of assistance.
Please take the time to send a little lump of coal to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan and Rand Paul. And don’t forget Michele Bachmann, who seems to have failed American History in high school. If you have a particular tea-party representative you’d like to thank for the recent shutdown that cost taxpayers $28 billion dollars, feel ... continue reading »

I am not black, but believe something is seriously awry when an unarmed woman with a baby in the car can be executed with no justification forthcoming.

What you reported today about the conservative prime minister of Australia is excellent ["World looks to dump Obama's 'green cr-p'"]. What the U.N. is doing regarding global warming is exactly what the PM said – socialism disguised as environmentalism.
When Gorbachev was the head of the KGB, he instructed communists all over the world to stop identifying with the color red and start identifying with green. Within a year after that, Green Parties sprung up all over the world. When Gorbachev completed his work at dictator of Russia, Skull & Bones Bus ... continue reading »
Hi, Mr. Farah.
I won’t take issue with what you wrote ["The real Mandela in his own words"], but I believe the one point that you don’t mention is that he prevented South Africa from being plunged into a bloody civil war between whites and blacks and promoted forgiveness and reconciliation between everyone living there. He alone was able to prevent South Africa from turning into another Zimbabwe. What will happen now that he is gone is unclear, but he sought to bring the country together and didn’t destroy the economy by implementing the co ... continue reading »
