To all subscribers of this website. I am working on transitioning to a newsletter format for those who signed up for email alerts. For a little time you will likely get two emails when a post is published. I want to ensure the new system works before the old one is discontinued. If you have signed up I have ported you over to the new site. If you decide you do not want the alerts any longer there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.
There are a number of options. The new system allows per post and/or weekly alerts. I might add a daily if I publish more often (could use a few more writers for that to happen).
You can always add this site to any feed reader and there is an option to have text alerts sent to a text enabled phone. All options are in the right sidebar at the top. Those who register for the site also have the choice of subscribing at the time of registration.
If you are registered with this site I have sent a message to you asking if you want to be included. No one will be added unless they respond that they want to be.
Thanks for your patience while I work on the transition.
If the new system does not work out I will keep the old one in place.
Never surrender, never submit.
A Chicago teen, Charinez Jefferson, was murdered by a gang banger who saw her walking with a member of a rival gang. Gang banger Timothy Jones fired shots at the two and his rival ran from the scene leaving Jefferson to fend for herself (what a real man this guy is).
Jones pointed his gun at Jefferson as she begged for her life explaining that she was pregnant. Jones shot her in the head and then pumped more rounds into her body. She died and her unborn child is in critical condition.
The anti gun nuts in this country will blame the weapon for the crime but the weapon was used by a person who should not have had it (criminals do NOT obey the law) and who should have been in jail. Charinez Jefferson was the victim of a liberal judicial system that refuses to incarcerate felons. Jones has a long rap sheet.
A police source said that Jones was a “stick-up man” well known to area police. At the time of the shooting, Jones was serving 2 years of probation for a 2010 burglary conviction, Dillon said. He also has a “lengthy” juvenile record, including convictions for unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, and burglary. Chicago Tribune
Jones should have been in jail. He was well known to police and had a history of violence, criminal activity and use of weapons. Why was this thug on the street?
He was on the street because of a judicial system that allows judges who live in protected communities to be lenient on people who have shown they are unworthy of freedom.
Charinez Jefferson was murdered and her child is in critical condition because a judge or judges refused to put the animal who eventually murdered her in a cage where he belongs.
And since Chicago has one of the most stringent gun laws in the country, Jefferson and others are not allowed to carry guns for their own protection.
They are prey to people like Jones who refuse to obey the law and who are coddled by the lax judicial system.
Never surrender, never submit.
Lots going on these days, beyond the horrible disaster in Japan.
- Food prices are way up, home construction is down, gas and oil prices are up — but don’t worry, the federal government says there’s no inflation. So just ignore that you’re earning less and paying more, that’s all just your imagination, according to the government. And after all, the government is spending at will and they’re getting raises (and not just there, all over the place).
- The TSA (may hellfire rain upon them) continues to screw up their job, but they’re unionized and forced upon everyone by law, so ignore them at your own peril. Unless, of course, you’re a government official, then you can ignore them at will.
- But hey, you can rest easy, because these overpaid government officials are on the job, ensuring that watching a video can get you years in jail and they’re working hard to ensure that sitting down can get you jailed, too. Or even telling people to kill themselves. If the courts were consistent, and this action was a crime, then urging someone to get an abortion should be a crime too, right?
- And yes, the left continues to advocate violence with people who disagree with them. But keep in mind — the government of the left IS violence. It simply cannot function any other way.
- And finally, as you know, words get redefined all the time in the English language. Now, according to Adrian Peterson, getting paid over ten million dollars in one year to play a game is now the definition of “slavery.” As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a maroon!”
I know it all sounds bad, and actually, it is. America, as the former leader of the world, is now trying hard to lead the world down, and they’re succeeding. But that’s just one reason why I don’t put my hope in governments or men. I know there’s a higher power at work, and I know how the story ends — and it’s a good ending.

A church in Manayunk, a neighborhood in the northwestern section of the city of Philadelphia PA, has had a complaint filed against it because its bell is too loud. The church that has been there for longer than any of the residents has a huge bell that tolls during the day. Someone complained that the church is violating noise laws for the town.
Christians became enraged at the thought of the church being told to stop ringing its bell and threatened violence if the city goes through with the process of fining the church. Army Generals complained about the Christians and their violence and how it might increase the danger to US troops serving overseas. Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Hillary Clinton all weighed in asking the town not to take further action that could inflame Christians and INTERPOL has issued a global warning to 188 member countries that violence against innocent people is likely to increase if the church is sanctioned.
OK, the last paragraph is complete nonsense. Those actions were in response to a Florida pastor’s plans to burn the Koran and the anticipated (and threatened) violence from the Islamic adherents to the religion of peace.
In reality, the church has toned down the bell over the years by reducing the number of times and frequency that it is rung and is looking at ways to reduce its sound level. It will be interesting to see how this plays out because churches are not mentioned in the list of noise producers covered or excluded and it has been there for around a century, long before noise restrictions were enacted (and long before the people who enacted them were born).
I wonder why a person would move to where a church bell makes loud noise and then complain about it.
In any event, it will be interesting to see how this plays out because there is a favored religion (cult) in this country that has very noisy calls to prayer five times a day. Muslim Mosques do not care about noise when they have the call to prayer (something Obama described as one of the most beautiful sounds) and though there is no mosque mentioned in the town one has to wonder if the town would have gone after a mosque for noise violations and if the Muslims would have felt disrespected and started making threats and participating in violent acts.
Look at how the Muslim world got its collective sheets in an uproar over some unknown pastor and his plan to burn Korans at his small church. There were protests around the world and threats to do harm to our soldiers (I would relax the rules of engagement and eliminate that threat) and this is not the first time.
Now we even have the Imam of the Ground Zero Mosque saying that they have to build the mosque there now or there will be violence. More threats.
This will happen more and more as Islamic groups demand things and then threats are made when they do not get their way. Every time we give in or they get their way after a threat then we will be a little weaker.
Fortunately, it looks like the pastor called off the Koran burning and did it in a manner that looks like a mutual agreement.
Now let’s see what happens from here.
Never surrender, never submit.
