Special Treat: A Slightly Weird Commercial

For those of you who missed out on 1950s TV because you weren’t born yet, Wagon Train was one of the hit series of the era. And here are the three stars of the show, still in character, doing a car commercial (Ward Bond, Frank McGrath, Terry Wilson).

I find something pleasantly weird about this commercial, although I’ll be dashed if I can tell you what it is.


Sanity Break: Your Cats’ Jobs

All right, I’ve had enough of the news today. Time for a cat video. These help to keep my head from exploding.

Here are some of the useful things your cats do around the home. It should be added that cats are also masters of the art of making things disappear. Like pens, chessmen, or anything else small enough to bat under the bookcase where you’ll never see it again.


The Clintons’ Wonderful Marriage (Are They Kidding?)

Image result for images of bill clinton chasing women

As if it were not preposterous enough for our–ugh!–president to call Hillary Clinton “the most qualified person” ever to run for president…

As if it weren’t enough of a whopper to describe the former chief of the Bimbo Eruption team as the protector and champion of sexually harassed women (except, of course, for the ones her husband harassed: they had to be destroyed)…

At least Bill Cosby never had a wife who ran interference for him.

Now the kooks at Cosmopolitan magazine have described Bill and Hillary Clinton as “good marriage role models.” ( http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/maggie-mckneely/2016/07/28/cosmo-clintons-are-good-marriage-role-models )

What???

Do they think we’ve all been in hibernation for the past 20 years? Bill Clinton has cheated on Hillary–and gotten caught doing it!–innumerable times. And she has turned a blind eye to it because he is the basis of her political ambitions. Nor have we forgotten her efforts to trash the women that her husband cheated with, or simply pursued whether they wished it or not: more than a few of those.

What would possess anyone to call this aging satyr and his power-hungry, money-hungry mate “good marriage role models”?

I pray every day that the Lord in His mercy will not let my country fall into Hillary Clinton’s hot little hands.


A Creationist Cleans House

A famous image–but none the less false for all that

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati is a Ph.D. in chemistry and a former chess champion of New Zealand. But he’s got to be just a big dope because he doesn’t believe in Evilution–right?

Read this article he wrote on the practical feasibility of Noah’s Ark, and then go on to read all the comments below it ( http://creation.com/how-did-all-the-animals-fit-on-noahs-ark ). With all the Darwin crowd nipping at his ankles, watch him slice and dice them till there’s nothing left of their position–all without any name-calling.

Sarfati dusts off one of them so thoroughly that the poor schlub is reduced to demanding to know if Sarfati believes a sorceress should be put to death, as prescribed in the Old Testament. What bearing that has on a discussion over whether Evilution is fact or fantasy is anybody’s guess. But it usually crops up as a sign of desperation.

P.S.–Yes, I do know how to spell “evolution.” But as politics masquerading as science, I think “evilution” more appropriate.


Another Thing of Beauty Bites the Dust

Image result for images of big old tree with ivy

We had a bad storm a few nights ago, and a huge branch fell off a tree and crushed the roof of a car in the parking lot next door.

So they sawed the whole thing down yesterday. Not a trace of it remains.

Why do branches fall off trees that are still alive and healthy? Because they keep growing until they’re too big, and too heavy, and growing at a disadvantageous angle, to resist the pull of gravity. This happens naturally. We don’t want our cars or ourselves to be crushed under a 700-pound branch that suddenly comes crashing down, so it behooves us to take care of the trees around us.

They could have sawed off the big branches most likely to break off, but they got rid of the entire tree.

I grieve for that! This was a venerable, ancient tree, still going strong, and had a great trunk (like the tree in the picture above) that looked like a number of smaller trunks had been marvelously welded together. It wore necklaces of ivy and a soft gown of moss. It was beautiful, there was no other tree like it around here, and now it’s gone as if it had never been. As if we’d dreamed it.

Libs ‘n’ progs never stop yakking about “respecting the environment” and Saving The Planet by taking away your air conditioner. Well, I live in a town that has been uninterruptedly ruled by the likes of them since Watergate, and for all their lip service to the environment, they have waged constant war against the natural world. They have trashed this town but good! They want to pave over everything and put up housing projects.

Please! When Democrats shed crocodile tears for the natural world, and blather on about how more restrictions need to be imposed on the common people (but not themselves) in order to Protect The Environment–please, please don’t believe them!

Because they do not mean a single word of it. And if you don’t believe me, drive through New Jersey sometime and see what they’ve done to it.

What! A quiet little cove where horseshoe crabs gather to mate under the light of the full moon, as they’ve doing since the dawn of time? Aaarght! Fill it in! Pave it over!

And so on.


By Request, ‘Revelation Song’

Wow, Linda! Thanks for requesting this one. I think we want to turn up the volume on Revelation Song.

But I’m not the only one feels this song. See this comment from the youtube page:

“I’m an Atheist but this song makes me think, ’cause this one tugs something inside me.”

Let’s pray for this guy to come on board and be our brother. The Holy Spirit has stretched out His hand to him.


By Request, an Encore: ‘Is There a Mountain’

I just want everybody to know that we do encores here. I’ve posted many hymns more than once, mostly because people ask for them.

So here, requested by Erlene, is Carroll Roberson with Is There a Mountain.


Video Treat: Cats Love You

Does your cat love you? Here are some cats who really, really love their human beings.

Just another one of those little things that God put into His creation, that we never would’ve thought of.

God’s stuff is just so good.


When You’ve Had Enough of the News…

When I suddenly find myself screaming as I scan the news, I know it’s time to back off.

Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948), a fantasy about a middle-aged Bostonian who falls in love with a mermaid, is an effective dose of sanity, funny, whimsical, and witty: they really don’t make movies like this anymore. For Patty and me it’s long been a favorite. It stars William Powell as Mr. Peabody, Irene Hervey as his baffled wife, and Ann Blyth as the mermaid–and if this movie doesn’t relax, delight, and captivate you, I don’t know what will.

Poor Peabody blunders into one mortifyingly embarrassing situation into another until the whole island (they’re on vacation in the Caribbean) thinks he’s totally popped his cork. These scenes, relying on acutely clever dialogue and marvelous performances, are screamingly funny. I mean, you will just plotz when Peabody goes into the Wee Shop of Intimate Things to buy “half a bathing suit.”

This comedy is gentle, sweet, and in its own quiet and inimitable way, off the wall.

If you’re over 50, like Peabody, and have never thought you’ve heard a mermaid singing in the distance…. you ought to listen harder.


Are These People for Real?

Image result for images of evil bill clinton sex fiend

If you like your hypocrisy served up in big, fat, dripping slabs, you’d have had a feast at this year’s Democrat Convention.

As evidence of how deranged and clueless these people are, consider TV celeb Lena Dunham’s speech the other night. Bear in mind that Ms. Dunham made a false accusation of rape that she had to take back and has admitted to molesting her little sister. All and all, perfect for an audience of Democrats. ( http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2016/07/26/rape-hoaxer-lena-dunham-dnc-hillary-will-help-fellow-sexual-assault-survivors/ )

Ms. Dunham spoke of herself as a victim of sexual assault–that’s the rape that never happened–and hailed Hillary Clinton as the great supporter and champion of “my fellow sexual assault survivors.”

Yay, hooray. Did she not know that sitting right there in the audience was Bill Clinton, Mr. Hillary, the king of sexual harassment and assault? If the pagans had a god of sexual harassment, it’d be him. Did she not know–and how in the world couldn’t she?–that Hillary Clinton directed the campaign to smear, discredit, and malign her husband’s victims?

This is hypocrisy of a very high order. Or maybe it’s just insanity. But describing Hillary “Careless” Clinton as a protector of women who have suffered sexual assault is like calling a stork the protector of the minnows.

Oh, and of course Ms. Dunham hailed Careless as the guarantor of “the American promise”–the American Dream is over, so now we have to settle for a promise–which she defined as not “transphobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, and systemic racism.”

Do you really, truly want these people running your government? Will your conscience let you live with that?

We have finally gone beyond just plain wacko politics, and entered a realm of monsters.
