I hereby apologize for saying anything about Michael Jackson.
The largest tax increase in American history passed the House last night, and America was eating popcorn at the movies. I gave up from my phone calling, emailing, and letter writing from TARP days. I am a mother of six with only so many nerves left. Besides, I need to save my time and money for buying gold (that Obama will confiscate like FDR), treasuries from somewhere like Antarctica, and rolled oats that won’t get pantry moths.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

“Because your loving-kindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.” Psalm 63:3
The truth of God’s Word teaches us that Christ and Christ alone, is “better than life.” For believers, the thought of life without Christ is unbearable and impossible to conceive. He is our life, our hope, our salvation and we desire Him more than even life itself. His love, His grace, His loving-kindness to us poor, wretched, miserable creatures is beyond comprehension and we rejoice in His mercy and love for us in giving us the abundant life. He is our joy and happiness and in Him we “live and move and have our being.” (read the rest)
