Monitoring for Radiation at Mosques: Isn’t This a GOOD THING?!?!?

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

Apparently not, if you are from the Left and looking for anything to lay on President Bush. Hugh Hewitt has a great analysis of the non-story. What is a huge, huge story is finding out who the leakers are on both this and the NSA story. Gee, where’s Valerie Plame when you need her?

Tracking Santa

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

Sadly, we’ve outgrown Santa in our house. But this is still a fun site to look at as you finish wrapping the presents, and just before you put out the Oreos and milk.

The Story of the Nativity – Part 3

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

The Visit of the Wise Men
Matthew 2:1 Now after
Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise
men [1] from the
east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the
Jews? For we saw his star when it rose [2] and have
come to worship him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all
Jerusalem with him; 4 and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the
people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 They told him,
“In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:

6 “‘And
you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the
rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
who will shepherd my
people Israel.’”

7 Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and
ascertained from them what time the star had appeared. 8 And he sent them to
Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have
found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.” 9 After
listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they
had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place
where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with
great joy. 11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother,
and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they
offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned in a
dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.

Nearly the saddest time in History (With Herod’s attempt to snuff out the Messiah), and the very reason we give gifts to one another on Christmas. The story of the nativity is my favorite part of the Bible, as well Christmas is my favorite time of year.

Narnia Topples Kong: Are the Defeatocrats in Hollywood Listening?

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

So, a movie about children visiting a magical land, a movie with very heavy Christian undertones, beats out the “blockbuster” going in to the big Christmas weekend. Brokeback Mountain, a movie many on the Left are raving about, is a distant tenth.

Parents make choices with their money, their time, and most especially what they let their children watch on a 90 foot screen in surround sound. It’s past time for Hollywood to honor those choices with movies that are worth paying nine dollars to see.

Saddam and the Defeatocrats: The Same Losing Strategy

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

Nice to see Saddam is watching American television. Don’t you find it sad that Saddam has more in common with the Left than the Left has in common with America?

The Roots of Evil

Posted by Mark on December 23, 2005

A very disturbing video, especially if you have children. Yet this video gets at the heart of the evil within radical Islam in a far more accurate way than any George Clooney or Steven Spielberg movie.
