Easter – are you for real or just kidding???? Bring on the BUNNIES!






Easter – are you for real or just kidding????
This is HILARIOUS! Uh, folks, wake up call, Easter has about as much to do with the death and resurrection of Christ as xmas does with his birth!
ACCORDING TO THE BIBLICAL RECORD: Christ died the Friday evening at the END OF PASSOVER! Uh, that’s NEXT WEEKEND!!!!
Don’t you just love it when people let preachers tell them what to do and believe and don’t think for themselves?
Also, if you look at how Passover and Easter dates are determined, it’s by 2 completely different methods! Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. If that sounds more astrological to you than Biblical, you’re right. Frankly you had Emperor Constantine convening the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD and as a result of this event, Easter is when it is. By the way, Constantine’s actions is why the majority of Protestants (an Catholics) worship on Sunday…I think 321 AD Council of Trent is your reference there.
SO, if you still want to continue to celebrate the old Babylonian and pre-Babylonian fertility rites and celebrations, GO FOR IT! Don’t forget your chocolate eggs, bunnies and viagra !!!
Just understand that neither April 1 nor Easter have anything in Biblical fact to do with the death of Christ…
Interesting that it’s APRIL FOOL’S DAY!!! How appropriate! So, have fun doing what bunnies do best!

Thought Of The Day – For The Week Of March 18, 2018




Did anyone ask how the police actually FOUND the Fedex bomber??






Did anyone ask how the police actually FOUND the Fedex bomber??
OK, the FBI, etc., found the Fedex bomber. I’m glad they did. It’s too bad he blew up his sorry ass before they had a chance to take him in for some quality time with his pals in the local jail.
Frankly, I’m all for the maximum punishment to these kinds of assholes and frankly, there’s times when I wish we could put them on the wheel or use a little of “Vlad the impaler’s” technology on them. I think they deserve it, regardless that the liberal press and liberal politicians think that the victim should be punished and the criminal should be dietized.
BUT, what has me concerned here is HOW they caught this guy. According to published reports from law enforcement sources, a federal warrant was obtained and this GOOGLE SEARCHES were analyzed. Read that again: HIS GOOGLE SEARCHES WERE ANALYZED! This means that Google and other search engines are keeping/archiving all your searches for whatever data analytics they want to apply to them for whatever use they have in mind! This goes beyond just simple target marketing. It easily extends into all kinds of profiling for any kinds of reasons. Are you awake yet? An most likely Facebook, et al, do the same kind of data mining and archiving…
Now, we’ve known this was being done for a long time. Lexus/nexus has used this type of analytics for a long time and they have a “black” side of their company that does classified work for the government with some really interesting results. But I digress…
Clearly, it’s more than obvious that Orwell’s Big Brother moved in a long time ago and is well entrentched in the black side of the world we generally refer to as our daily lives. Nothing is private anymore and nothing is sacred. Just be aware of that next time you turn on your computer and even more so when you do a Google, Yahoo, or whatever search on the internet. It’s being logged and analyzed by someone. The old caveat of: “what you do, can and will be used against you…” is very much alive and well…
…and please, don’t go blowing up Fedex – they have a hard enough time delivering my packages as is!

Great Mills, Maryland High School – A good gun taking out a bad gun and saving lives! Yes, it actually works that way!






Great Mills, Maryland High School – A good gun taking out a bad gun and saving lives! Yes, it actually works that way!
OK folks, so here we go again. Someone in a school thinks that the way to solve their problems is through VIOLENCE, VIOLENT ACTS and, yes, once again they used a gun. However, as everyone with half a brain has been saying for a long time, to take out a bad guy with a gun, you need a good guy with a gun. Unlike recent events in Florida where the local sheriff’s department decided to go on coffee break during the shooting, the school safety officer at Great Mills actually decided to DO THEIR JOB and took out this murderous thug! At the same time probably saving many from injury and death! This guy deserves a hero’s welcome.
However, I kinda doubt this officer wants to be considered a hero. Every GOOD cop I know of sends up a prayer every time they strap on their sidearm that they won’t be faced with a situation where they would have to use it. That they won’t be faced with a situation where they would have to take another life to save themselves or others. That’s the sign of a good cop…and yes, there are a few of them out there!
Interestingly enough, I’ve yet to see CNN and their corp of crisis actors crowing about gun violence and how all guns need to be removed. I’m really happy that I DON’T see the likes of idiots like David Hogg or his skin headed gal pal, running their mouths and claiming to be students here, there, and everywhere, and pushing CNN and the socialist media’s anti-gun agenda. What amazes me even more is that the likes of ilk like CNN’s gun carrying Anderson Cooper haven’t called it an “assault gun” yet….but to them, anything that doesn’t fit their socialist, anti-2nd amendment, anti-American view, is called an “assault weapon”. Makes you wonder if CNN didn’t have enough time to plan for this one(pardon the sarcasm!).
We still are no closer, thanks to the liberal lame stream media and all the socialist sycophants in congress, to finding out the root causes of all this recent violence of the past weeks, months and years… And, until we find out WHY THE VIOLENCE EXISTS, it will continue.
People think they can point to countries like Australia and the UK that banned guns…but they don’t tell you the rest of the picture that the major crimes, armed robberies, assaults, etc., ACTUALLY INCREASED DRAMATICALLY…until people bought guns on the black market and were actually able to defend themselves once again. The UK actually had a “turn in your knives” campaign for a while as violence with knives was so high! Yeah, it failed.
It’s interesting to realize that in a city like Kennessaw Georgia, where the local law is you MUST have a gun in your home, major crimes are substancially lower than in cities that ban guns…with I think only one murder…in like 6 years…Hmmm…wonder why?
The socialist lame stream media like to point to statistics of how guns are used in murders in the US and at a much higher rate than the rest of the civilized world…but if you remove just five cities (which also have the strongest gun laws) of DC, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago and NYC, all cities that have been run by liberal management for a long time, the US finds itself at almost the BOTTOM of the same statistical report. Anyone wonder why?
Clearly the left wing lame stream media are more interested in pushing their socialist agenda, hyping up unfortunate events and in short, not giving a damn about anything but their own agenda.
So, it’s up to us to figure this out on our own…clearly CNN, The FBI, et al, are to busy attacking Trump to care….
