Pray in the Spirit, in your most holy faith! Don’t allow the devil to steal what God has given you! Let your understanding be from God, and not from man! The things of God are spiritually discerned. God gives good gifts to His children. The gifts of God are irrevocable. Allow the Spirit of God to lead you as the Great Shepherd who cares for His flock. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in all who are in Christ bodily. Understand that we are His workmanship, and He promises to complete that work for all that continue to call upon the name of the Lord!
We all love to sit down to a good meal. Whatever our favorite food, we really look forward to enjoying the things we love. After our appetite is satisfied, it doesn’t take but a few hours and we are hungry again, but we seldom consider that our spiritual life functions in much the same way.
A photo reflecting a tragedy at the border went across countries this week, shocking thousands if not millions of people with the horrible face of reality behind undocumented immigration.
It took more than a year after State Rep. Eric Johnson complained about a plaque applauding the rebels in the Civil War, just around the corner from his office in the Texas Capitol, for it to be removed. But it finally was.
The mid-term election will determine our economic future, and your vote should be a thoughtful one. The choice will be a growing economy with receding government control, or a growing government with undeliverable promised free stuff.
In today’s fast-paced, hustle, bustle society; we have become programmed to moving at break-neck speed in order to accomplish life goals and to complete that never ending daily to-do list.
The establishment Fed raised the interest rates for the sixth time since Trump and only once during the entire Obama administration. Rising rates suppresses the stock market, with investors selling falling market equity, turning to rising interest rate bonds.
Willie Braudway’s claim that TNR (trap, neuter, re-abandon) is the cheapest way to reduce the overpopulation of feral cats defies common sense and has repeatedly been proven to be untrue and inhumane.
Repent, lest I tear you into pieces. Who said that? Was it Samson with his great strength? No, it was God who said that to those that do not fear Him and choose to live apart from Him!
It changed America. There was a time in America when if you were a Black, accused of raping a white woman, you were hung from the nearest tree! Remember Hitler’s Germany? If you were a Jew you were exterminated. Kavanaugh was almost a Republican Black Jew.
By the time you read this, Hurricane Michael will have been reduced to an insignificant cluster of thunderstorms spinning off into the North Atlantic. But its impact will be felt for generations to come.
The bi-partisan support group for public schools, Texas Parent PAC, which endorses legislative candidates of both major parties, for the first time endorsed two candidates for statewide office.
Ms. Ford appeared to me a prevaricating, sad person. If this was decided by Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Strozk, leadership, all part of Obama/Clinton justice leadership, Kavanaugh would never be confirmed to the court. He was never one of them, bought, packaged and controlled.
I’m rolling on the floor laughing. Entertained by the majority Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which they turned in to a kangaroo court, putting on a farcical inquiry of justice and the rule of law.
Sad to say, folks, but it looks like this will be my last column. No, I haven’t been fired or over-stayed my welcome, and I haven’t suddenly run out of ideas.
It’s just that I will be awfully busy in the months and years to come keeping up with all my money, and I won’t have time for the writing.
They ran presidential spokesperson Sarah Sanders out of a restaurant. They chased Senator Cruz out, following Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Water’s directions. Tea Party conservatives would never do that.
THAT EGG you had for breakfast this morning was one of about 450 a typical factory laying hen produces in its short life. Starting at the age of four months, those hens lay about an egg a day until they are considered depleted at the age 18 to 20 months. That’s significantly better than broiler chickens, which reach slaughter weight at eight weeks, but far worse than the 5-year life span of a farm bred chicken. Depleted laying hens are slaughtered, and their flesh enters the secondary food market ending up as chicken nuggets and other processed chicken items. A typical egg factory will produce 1 million 12-egg cartons each year.
Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz wants to deport immigrants brought to the United States illegally when they were younger than 16 – even though this may be the only country they’ve ever known.
My first cousin had a top secret security clearance, working at the Pentagon for near 30 years. I recall her joking that the FBI knew more about her than she knew about herself. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh has withstood six such FBI examinations, as he rose to highest levels of judicial confidence.
The “Buzzard Gulch” Economic Development Corporation is on the warpath and maybe even after some council scalps unless they get a fast lane at the toll booth just like “Eagle Pass and other border cities down from there.”
After negotiations that seemed like they might drag on longer than those anti-nuke talks between Donald Trump and the North Koreans, the U.S. Senate competitors finally agreed to debate.
There will never be a bright future for haters who excuse their plight in life on decades old sins of the distant past. We have abandoned our high founding greatness, falling into a cesspool of politically correct snow flake helplessness, led by false promising evil politicians!
The evangelicals went whole hog for “Tiberius the Dumb,” perhaps thinking him a sort of savior come to “Make America great again.” But while I have no statistics, my gut feeling is that at least some evangelicals are having second thoughts about Tiberius as a God sent.
Open your wallet right now. What cards do you find? Most folks have a driver’s license, right? Then there are the military ID, school ID, work ID cards. You probably have multiple insurance cards – health, auto, life, home, Medicare. How about a debit card or some other bank card? And I’ll bet you have more than one credit card, too. I hope you have a voter registration card and plan to vote Tuesday.
It has come to this.
Taco Bell is the best Mexican restaurant in America.
That stark, unblinking statement of fact is the conclusion of the Harris Poll, the annual rating of the most popular brands in the country. It is based on exhaustive questioning of more than 77,000 consumers, representing all demographics and cutting through all strata of American society.
And then there were seven.
That’s seven declared candidates for speaker of the 150-member Texas House of Representatives – so far. More candidates may yet decide to get in. After all, the speaker’s office is not often up for grabs, with no incumbent seeking re-election
Seven seconds into Chairman Grassley’s opening remarks the Democrats rudely interrupted him, out of order, demanding the confirmation hearing of Kavanagh come to a halt, until such time the evil Republicans turned over sure incriminating evidence from the Bush controlled presidential papers.
President who, what? Did what? Oh, yeah, you mean Doofus Tiberius Trump A-Plus in the White House who may just start a civil war with his inciting unholy exhortations and mouthful of dangerous lies about the coming elections in November 2018, telling some evangelicals in private, and it leaked:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton, both Republicans, are actively working to stamp out the Affordable Care Act – nicknamed ObamaCare, for its principal advocate, former President Barack Obama.
The Clinton cartel was fully exposed in honest transparency – would you love the truth? The Mueller special counsel failed to find an impeachable crime? Would you be devastated? A special counsel was appointed to investigate the Mueller special counsel appointed without a crime? Would you choose justice over party? If multiple members of the Obama/Clinton Justice Department were guilty of crimes, would you care? If Hillary spent a few years in the big house of corrections, would you lose sleep?
I am fortunate to live just a couple of blocks from my work. Since I can’t drive right now, I have been walking to work in the morning. For the life of me, I do not understand why there are no sidewalks on Wildcat from Cantu to Memorial Drive.
THE WORLD RECORD for largemouth bass was set way back in 1932, by George Perry who landed a 22 pound 4 ounce lunker at Montgomery Lake in Georgia. That mark was matched in 2009 by Manubu Kurita at Lake Biwa in Japan. Matched, but never bettered, even to this day. All eyes are on Lake Castiac, in California, where the third, fourth and fifth heaviest largemouths were taken since 2000.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, the Republican presiding officer of the Texas Senate, has been ducking, ignoring, or dismissing debate challenges from his Democratic challenger, Houston businessman Mike Collier.
Trump hasn’t been in charge of his Justice Department from the start. Jeff Sessions turned it over to Rod Rosenstein his second day of tenure, by recusing himself because of an innocent, non-disqualifying hello to a Russian official as disqualifying collusion. Rosenstein is a made member of the Clinton, Obama, Mueller, Comey pack of jackals, spreading millions around for fellow swamp water moccasins willing to sell their soul to the devil.
For reasons great and small, I have become the household grocery shopper. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but there are some pitfalls to supermarket duty to watch for.
Do you remember the “Twilight Zone” episode with Burgess Meredith as the librarian. It’s the end of the world, and he’s getting ready to enjoy reading all the books that survived. And then … he breaks his glasses. He can see far but not near enough to read. Then there’s Mr. Magoo, the cartoon character stumbling along in life because his glasses still won’t let him identify objects inches from his face. I have been feeling a bit like both of them lately as I go through the process of cataract removal – one eye at a time.
Two highly regarded chancellors of Texas University systems made the news in recent days:
• William McRaven, who recently retired as chancellor of the University of Texas System, for publicly criticizing President Donald Trump for jerking the national security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan; and
The mainstream media has morphed into tabloid journalism, preaching leftist nonsense that has destroyed every nation falling prey to its dominant voice. It seems that after the fall of the Soviet Union, the current Venezuela catastrophe, the false promises of socialism would have no appeal with societies with learning capabilities. But socialism/communism is a pied piper dream of equality in enough, hangs on a thread of hatred for free market capitalism with disparity of the rich and poor.
A local writer to the opinion page makes a reference to “junk media.” To which I suspect she was referring to the junky Fox-News, and the despicable anchors like Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity, two raving lunatics on the extreme right. And some White House staffers have referred to Hannity as Tiberius number one advisor.
