When George H.W. Bush died in November, he was remembered for so many things -- his leadership in the Cold War, America's invasion of Kuwait, his World War II service. What almost never came up was January 16, 1993. Four days before President Bush left office, his dream of a second term lost, he did something significant. He heeded Congress's call to set this day apart, so that we could honor what sets our nation apart: religious freedom.

Having been born and raised south of the Mason-Dixon-Line I have always had a natural resentment of President Lincoln. Not necessarily because he freed the slaves, but because he was responsible for the death of a culture that had flourished down south. A lot of my growing up took place in the last Capitol of the Confederacy and there was a general dislike of all those “Damm  Yankees.”

The Democrats' national platform doesn't just lack common decency when it comes to unborn life -- it lacks common ground! For the last three years, the party of Obama and Clinton has been fighting to do away with consensus limits on abortion -- and based on the latest polling, that isn't exactly endearing them to voters.

If in the New Testament there was no church as we know it today (and there was not), there was no “church planting” per se in the New Testament, either. If what we call “church” in the New Testament was not a corporate entity (and it was not), then it cannot be considered biblical to engage in planting corporate entities called churches. But church planting is another of those things about church that people just assume to be biblical, either of command or example, when it is neither.

Congress Gets Most of the Blame

A wiki offical public domain photo of Donald Trump

According to North Carolinians for Immigration Enforcement (NCFIRE), in 2018, there were 743 child rapes or sexual assaults on children in North Carolina by 215 illegal immigrants. Don’t tell me the immigration crisis is a manufactured crisis. The Democrat Party and their lock-step mainstream news media need to re-start their brains and moral sensibilities and get their heads out of the sand.

First off, let’s define the word: “prologue”.  Webster’s defines it as ‘an introductory or preceding event or development’.  In a literary work it is often called a ‘preface’, a commentary or explanation that the author includes to clarify the story or the facts that are to follow.  The term, ‘the past is prologue’, tells us that, in real life, almost EVERYTHING can be a prologue—or a causative event-- to what follows it.  Thus, my responding to my “four-legged alarm clock” at 6:30 a.m., and dragging myself out of bed this morning, was my ‘prologue’ to going to work and serving my customers.  That’s a fairly easy concept to grasp.  What is more complicated to fathom is how the past of each one of us—I mean the really “long, long ago past”—has affected who we are, into what family we were born, and even in what country we originated.  Now that’s kind of deep, isn’t it?  In addition, it’s quite fascinating to “conjecture” various “present scenarios” resulting from a series of “past prologues” that might have occurred, but didn’t.

It was just last week that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) promised the American people that her House would be "bipartisan and unifying." Eight days later, there isn't a scrap of evidence she meant it. After 20 days of waiting at the negotiating table, President Trump is considering going it alone on the border wall. One of the options being tossed around by the White House is declaring a national emergency -- an idea some people think is too far-fetched. But is it? Legal experts say no.
