Send Missionaries To The U.S. ... PLEASE!

May 2, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Back at the dawn of history, when I was a but a wee lad, my family had the God-given insight to bring me up in an evangelical church.  I had no say in where I attended church,  See, kids back then kept their mouths shut and their ears open and paid heed to their parents, their elders.  (That is why I contend that my generation is so much smarter than the generations that followed.)

Apr 22, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Today, masses of human beings around the globe will celebrate the worship of the earth ... not God ... not the creator—but the creation.

War is Coming!

Apr 18, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

An old admonition continues to tug at my consciousness. Its cautionary advice about something imminently dangerous approaching—just over the horizon—is more than a little compelling. You know—the admonishment that warns: “Eat, drink, and make merry, for tomorrow we die!” (You may recall several different versions found in the Bible.)

Republicans Wimping-Out On Repeal Of ObamaCare?

Apr 17, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Allow me to be as clear as possible right here at the beginning of this commentary.  I don’t like ObamaCare at all, not in the slightest, in any way—shape or form.  Period!  Got it?

Once Upon A Time ...

Apr 15, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

How is it possible for a great American political party to be so out of touch with its constituents, so completely tone deaf to their wants and desires, so separated from the reality of the world around them?

Lions Led By A Sheep? Wolf Bait

Apr 3, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Someone once said something that sounded a lot like this: “A nation of sheep led by a lion is more to be feared than a nation of lions led by a sheep.”  That “someone,” as it turns out, was Alexander the Great.  At least the attribution I found for it says it was Alex as quoted in “The British Battle Fleet: Its Inception and Growth Throughout the Centuries to the Present Day (1915)” by Frederick Thomas Jane.

I know a man who suffers chronic pain. He also has an auto-immune disease which comes complete with its own myalgia (chronic pain). On top of that, the autoimmune disease has triggered fibro myalgia. So, let’s just say he deals with a heck of a lot of pain every day, 24 hours a day.

Send In The Clowns

Mar 25, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Back in the heyday of the circus, when something untoward took place within one of the rings, or within view of the audience, something that was best unseen by the paying public, the ringmaster would shout: “Send in the clowns.”  The antics of the clowns served as a way to direct the attention of the audience away from the bad scene until whatever the problem was was cleared up.

Obama, Putin:  Ever Hear Of The Monroe Doctrine?

Mar 24, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

Basically the Monroe Doctrine, boiled down to its essential parts states that European countries should stay on their side of the pond and the US will reciprocate by staying out of their business—and—on our side of the pond.

Obama Lacks Respect Among World Leaders

Brushfires of Freedom

Mar 11, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

During this country’s first “... times that try men’s souls…,”  a member of a small minority of the American colonists, thought of as a radical, a rabble rouser, even a traitor, kept the fires of freedom burning in the hearts and minds of his fellow colonists.  His name was Samuel Adams.  He was known by his friends as just plain “Sam.”

US Government Moves To Control News

Feb 27, 2014 — J.D. Longstreet

First, allow me to offer this warning: Do not, for one moment, believe the FCC has backed off its CIN (Critical Information Needs) initiative. It WILL be back, in another guise, most likely as a study to determine if minority ownership of broadcast stations is at a satisfactory level.  Of course, it is not—at least not in the eyes of the Democratic Party.
