I think we can agree that these burning questions need serious research with full transparency regarding the truth, don't you?
 
In all the coverage of Saturday’s Royal Wedding – and even on the wedding invitations – the happy couple is only referred to as “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.” Which leads me to wonder: Do Princes have last names? And what about the other royals?  Read more...

In a rare unanimous decision, 64 years ago last Thursday, the US Supreme Court handed down its decision in this landmark civil rights case. A young black girl, Linda Brown, sued the Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, because her local elementary refused to let her attend. They told her to go to an inferior black school that was miles farther away from her home.  Read more...

You may have never thought about this. But someday you may need to select the person who will be the celebrant at your loved one’s funeral – or possibly your own.

We have seen two very high profile funerals recently. All the details were televised. What you may not know if that every detail of those funerals had been planned by the “guest of honor.” Of course, we are speaking of Billy Graham and former First Lady Barbara Bush. One of the most important people each of them planned in advance was the officiant.

May I dispel the myth of 400 years of slavery. The slave trade began in America in 1619 and ended in 1865. That’s 246 years – not 400. And actually, the first black man to be declared a “slave for life” in America happened in 1654 (or '55). His name was John Casor, and coincidentally, his owner was tobacco farmer Anthony Johnson, who was also black.  Read more...

Approximately one-quarter of the Bible is prophecy. Some prophecies are related to the history of Israel and others have to do with the first coming of Christ (Messianic) and his death and resurrection.
 
The remainder of prophecy is about Christ’s second coming. These prophecies are often referred to as pre-millennial due to the fact that they cover the period just prior to the one thousand year rule of Christ over the world beginning just after he returns.  Read more...

Yesterday (5/14/2018), The New York posted published an article chronicling the clash between Palestinians and Israeli troops on the Gaza border. They write that “At least 52 Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops Monday, casting a pall on the inauguration of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem – and marking the deadliest violence since the 2014 Gaza cross-border war,” officials said. Obviously, these “clashes” were the result of the Trump administration’s decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Read more...

President Donald Trump promised during his 2016 campaign to relocate the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This move has enraged Palestinians who claim Jerusalem as their capital and in retaliation, many Palestinians have led violent protests, which have caused over 50 deaths so far.  Read more...

You may have heard of the new tax being levied on companies in the Seattle area. IBD reports that the Seattle Politburo (city council), “unanimously passed a ‘head tax’ of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city's swelling homeless population.”

On Memorial Day we rightly honor all those who have shed their blood to defend America and keep the dream of freedom alive.

In addition to those heroes, we should also honor all of the ordinary Americans who care enough about what our country stands for, to do everything - no matter how small - to prevent those, both here and abroad, who fear the freedom we represent, from dismantling our principals of liberty.  Read more...
Alfie Evans never stood a chance against the state and socialized health care!
Bob Pascarella
There is a passage in Proverb that reads, “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.” Little Alfie Evans never got the chance to make a living and the only thing he did get out of life was the love of his parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, and the millions of people across the planet who stood up and voiced their outrage at a heartless and callous British universal health care system and those who follow it to the letter, even if it means denying a parents rights to give their son a chance to live.

Years ago at my church, I shared a message called, ‘No Milk, No Manure.’ I was tempted to call it, 'Poop Happens’ but then backed off. Notice I didn’t use the other four-letter word I could have used. I think you understand why.

The people in my church loved it. People made me home-made models of ‘poop’ for my desk. I have no idea what they used. I don’t want to know. But the big saying at our church for a while was ‘Poop Happens.’ People still talk about that message. Read more...

The royal wedding will be long remembered by everyone, but I don’t think the couple will be chivareed (shivareed). Few of my readers have any idea what that means but it is a fascinating practice that goes back at least 700 years in Europe and England and from America’s beginning! Read more...
