I was reminded of Tennessee Ernie Ford when my Facebook friend, Barbie R, posted a YouTube of him. Sit back and take a trip down memory lane – and if you are too young for that, then be amazed and develop a new favorite! Enjoy!!

Air Force cracking down on Christians
Circuit Court Judge Bars Jewish Man from His Own Trial then Finds Him Guilty in Dispute Over Right to Wear Head Covering in Courtroom
So, how should Christians react to these kinds of things? Do you think these are examples of religious persecution?
Should Christians have to go “into the closet” or into catacombs? Should Jewish men have to hide their observance by not wearing tallit (with or without tzitzit [fringes]), not wearing a kippah or yarmulke? Should Jewish women have to avoid wearing sheitel or Tichel?
What do you think?

I am referring people to || this location || for a discussion of transgenderism and school children. “Being Schooled About Transgenders” discusses the cases of Coy Mathis and “Kathryn” – two children who from toddlerhood identified themselves as members of the opposite sex. Now, they want to use the bathroom of the opposite gender (they haven’t undergone sex-change surgery, of course – too young!)
The author, Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D. She points out that toddlers and pre-schoolers right on through high school will “test the limits.” Giving in to these testing the limits behaviors will make the child insecure. Enforcing the appropriate limits will make the child more secure.
She goes on to say: “Brain research shows that during adolescence there is tremendous growth in the brain. As I noted in my book Children at Risk, Dr. Jay Giedd, chief of brain imaging in the child psychiatry branch at the National Institute of Mental Health said, “It’s sort of unfair to expect [teens] to have adult levels of organizational skills or decision-making before their brains are finished being built.” Indeed. Yet psychologists and psychiatrists are encouraging not just teens, but children as young as four and five years of age, to deny their gender and, perhaps, start taking life-altering hormones before puberty.”
Her final conclusion? “There are so many questions and areas that present pitfalls regarding this issue that it seems schools should stay out of transgendering altogether. Perhaps if schools focused on teaching the necessary basics and avoided eagerly following the latest pseudo-scientific fads, children would be better prepared for life by the time they graduate. But then, those pushing their warped progressive ideology wouldn’t be able to experiment on them.”
Sounds like a winner to me!

Saturday At The Movies! Presidential Treason Edition.
Posted by John Wiseman on August 18, 2012 at 9:49am on Tea Party Nation
“I know most everyone has seen this by now, but it really is that important that it needs to be played on a continual loop from now through November 6. One of the things noticed by the 47% of the nation that voted for John McCain in 2008 was that maybe it was not the brightest of ideas to make a guy who clearly hates America and feels that our entire nation is founded on social injustice, Commander in Chief of our armed forces. Well, as it turns out, some of the folks charged with keeping our nation secure have come to that very same conclusion. The media went nuts and prosecuted Scooter Libby for not outing Valerie Plame, who outed herself by blabbing to a newspaper for the purposes of swaying an election. Now we have a case of Barack Obama blabbing out National Security secrets for the purposes of swaying an election. One major difference between the two events so far is that Barack Obama’s verbal diarrhea has cost the lives of at least Seal Team Six, and quite possibly more.” [MORE]
