Shep still waiting for the train

image  No matter how icy the winds that will howl into your hometown come winter,  there’s a lasting warmth to be found in a new book called Shep: Loyalty Beyond All Bounds by Kevin Davis.

  The Shep story was 65 years in coming and worth every second of waiting.

  Sixty-five years ago in Ft. Benton, Montana a sheepdog named Shep died.  But Shep who had wandered into the human heart was never to be forgotten, not even generations later.

  In any kind of weather Shep went up to every passenger train that stopped in his hometown—for five and one-half years, where he waited patiently for his beloved master’s return.

When Shep died in 1942, the story hit the A.P.  It was picked up by the London Daily and the New York Times.  At that time,  it took on meaning for those who would grieve the departure of their loves ones (those who were bravely departing for WW2) and would wait while hoping and praying for the joyous day of their return.

El Rushbo Uses Letter from Useful Idiots to Help U.S. Troops

Harry Reid and forty of the most fervently anti-American Democrats in the history of the U.S. Senate tried their level best to embarrass conservative talk show icon Rush Limbaugh, while simultaneously promoting themselves as guardian angels charged with protecting U.S. troops.

Top Ten Frivolous Lawsuits

We’ve all heard the one about the woman who spilled scalding coffee and successfully sued McDonald’s. But we’ve also heard reports of burglars suing homeowners after injuring themselves during a robbery. And don’t forget the stories of Winnebago owners winning lawsuits after they left the driver’s seat because the vehicle’s cruise control was activated. Most of us laugh off these stories as urban legends made to show the absurdity of frivolous lawsuits. You might be surprised, however, by how many of these are true.

ABC Tries To Credit Democrats for Rush’s $2 Million Ebay Letter!

imageIf this doesn’t take the cake, I don’t know what does? On an ABC News Blog called the Political Radar, ABC reports on Rush Limbaugh’s $2 million condemnation letter and throughout the piece continually links “Democrats” to the charity donation that Limbaugh and the ebay bidder for the letter are giving the money to.

After reading this ABC blog report, one gets the sneaking suspicion that ABC thinks that Harry Reid and the Democrats are the ones that should be hailed as the good guys responsible for raising this monumental sum for charity. It is clear that ABC did their level best to play down Limbaugh’s part in the story and play up the supposed positive contribution of Democrats.

Chicago Sneaks Free Newspaper Killing Law into Effect

Today, thanks to a law ushered in the back door right under everyone’s noses, it is illegal to distribute free newspapers. Were the Founders alive today, Richard Daley, King of Chicago, would prevent them from distributing their political papers to the public. No speech in King Daley’s city… not without HIS say-so, anyway.

Naomi Wolf Cries Fascism

One of my pet peeves with the Left is the tendency, almost by default, to liken the Bush Administration to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It is a significant reason I could no longer bring myself to associate with the Left.

Question: Did the Resolution Condemning Turkey Create a Constitutional Crisis

Recently, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by US Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), passed a resolution that recognized the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks in 1915 as genocide. While the circumstances surrounding the slaughter are disputed, the killings did occur. The larger questions this action presents could very well be as disturbing as the killings themselves. What was there to gain by issuing this non-binding resolution at this moment in time? And, did the issuance of the non-binding resolution usurp the Executive Branch’s authority to establish foreign policy?

Musharraf’s respect for press freedom

Although many are skeptical about Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf’s commitment to democracy, even they agree the press has had more freedom under him than probably ever before. Even so, the press there walks a careful line through a minefield of military, political and religious influences.

Evil

Man has long asked how a loving God could allow evil to exist in the world.  It’s an age-old philosophical question that can cause those who want faith to doubt and those who want to doubt to mock faith.  A Christian’s answer to this question is “free will,” a concept critics may regard as something reduced to a convenient cliche.  The truth is, though, that this is a most fascinating subject to inquisitive minds.

“The Future is nigh” cried the Futurist

The future will always be—to me—a mystery wrapped up inside an enigma. However, for some, the future is something to be unwrapped at all costs, leaving behind logic and childhood excitement in the process. Raymond Kurzweil is one of these men who believe that the future is something both predictable and foreseeable, and he’s made a living out of telling other people about his vision for that future.

Young Galaxy not as Young as First Thought

In the world of science, nothing is absolutely certain for very long. Einstein’s theories of relativity and general relativity are already being rethought. Evolution is always up in the air. And now, I Zwicky 18—a dwarf irregular galaxy—appears not to be as young as first thought.
