Never, ever forget

In case people have forgotten what sort of people we face in Afghanistan, Iraq, or with Islam in general, just watch these videos.

Korean Hostage Beheading

Armstrong Beheading

Pakistani Captives Beheaded

Beheading Of Paul Johnson

Nick Berg's Killing

Execution of 12 Nepalese hostages

Once you see some of these video clips, you will never see "the peaceful religion of Islam" the same again.

Hypocrisy in enforcement

Why is it that government is often so hypocritical in enforcing the Constitution? Why are some parts rigid while others are flexible? When it is to their advantage either personally or politically, is my answer.

In the N.C. Constitution, there is the following:
ARTICLE VI, Sec. 8. Disqualifications for office.
The following persons shall be disqualified for office:
First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God.

This same type of provision is seven or eight state constitutions, at least. The sad part is that some believe that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution supercedes all of these and therefore nullifies these requirements. These requirements are not just historical relics, left over from earlier times. Times have not changed as much as one may think. Sure, technology and social climate have changed, but people have not. There is nothing new under the sun.

The First Amendment states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. In regards to the state constitution, Congress did not make that law. The state did. So many people miss that point. Congress shall make no law does not mean a "separation of church and state" as so many uneducated lemings believe. It is only those who choose not to be held accountable to the very almighty God so referenced that fight such a concept. Unfortunately, the carnal nature of mankind has not changed and such restraints are fought against. That is the essence of secular humanism.

Wow, I got chewed out today for something I wrote

One of the things that I have been doing on my web site,, is to write restaurant reviews for area establishments. I had pitched the idea earlier this year to "The Selma News" and got no real response or interest on their end. I decided that I have my own platform on which to write, so I will do so. I have written a few reviews, one or two a week.

Just today, I wrote and published my review of McCall's restaurant in Clayton. It didn't take long for the restaurant management to write me SCREAMING IN ALL CAPS to tell me how upset he was about my review. Here is the problem: I was honest in my review. I didn't sugar coat anything and wrote my opinion of the restaurant.

I wish that I could say that I am sorry that they didn't like what I wrote, but it is an opinion column. People disagree with opinions; that is what makes them opinions.

I was asked to come back and give them another chance to show that they are better than my review. I will probably do so. There are other things that I could have included in the review, such as Teresa's love of their biscuits. Then again, I could also have written about my disdain for the lack of real separation between smoking and non-smoking sections in restaurants, such as there at McCall's.

I did not actively try to "ruffle feathers", but that is the nature of an opinion column. I am not purposely trying to "drum up" controversy in order to get readers or site traffic. I'm just being honest.

Warrantless search or not?

I was just listening to Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzel on WMPM radio a few minutes ago. Overall, I like Steve and the job that he has done here in the county. However, one thing I just heard him discuss that REALY bothers me is that he is chairing a committee along with a judge in Fayetteville to automate the process of warrrants.

Computer automation for report writing, field information, and criminal histories/databases is great. However, for serving a warrant, I have a serious problem with the concept. A deputy had better have something more than a laptop screen showing an electronic form of a warrant. I had better be served with a formal piece of paper showing all the information and a signature from a court official.

There is a reason that there is a requirement of a warrant for arrests, searches, and seizures. It helps to eliminate fraud and shows proof of the action. An electronic version does me no good as a citizen. The warrant is a protection of the citizen from abuse of government, not to protect law enforcement from the public.

I work in an electronic medium for a living, so I understand the benefit of the electronic process to organization and communication. However, there are certain instances in which "old fashioned paper" should never be replaced.

Anything electronic can be altered. Without paperwork in my hand for a situation requiring a warrant, my rights are not protected. This just opens the door for abuse and is something that we should not stand for.

I will be sharing this in the form of letters to the editor and message boards.

Selma needs to do this

Clayton drops local hot line for 911

The plan to eliminate the town's seven-digit emergency number will cut staff positions

Peggy Lim, Staff Writer

Instead of dialing a seven-digit police hot line, Clayton officials want residents to start routing emergency calls through Johnston County's 911 center, beginning Tuesday.

It won't be difficult for many town transplants to adjust.

"Everywhere we lived before used 911," said Carolyn Allen, 62, who moved to Clayton from Raleigh 13 years ago. It saved you from having to look up another hard-to-remember number, she said.

But the change didn't come without some controversy. The police department currently handles about 25,000 calls to its hot line number (553-4611) a year, said Town Manager Steve Biggs. The switch will eliminate four town staff positions and will close the police station at night.Despite some initial reservations, town council members agreed in June that the county has a better system. Unlike Clayton's system, the county's technology can trace calls back to cell phones or land lines -- an advantage as the town grows. The center also serves most county residents already, except those in the town of Selma. Clayton will pay the county about $100,000 a year for the service.

Clayton Police Chief Gary Ragland said residents will not likely notice major differences in service. The number of police on duty at night - about five - will remain the same. But response times may become faster. Currently, calls from Clayton residents to the 911 center are routed to Clayton dispatchers, who then send out police officers.

Ragland knows not everyone will like having a video camera and a call box replace human dispatchers on duty 24 hours at the Clayton police department.

"Most contact is by telephone calls or officer inquiries, but there will always be somebody who will want to come by to speak with an officer," he said. Sometimes, a victim of domestic violence prefers to go to the police station instead of calling from home. Often, the department is used for custody exchanges, Ragland said.

Currently, people can enter the police department at any hour, speak to a dispatcher behind a bullet-proof window and wait to see an officer in the lobby waiting room.

After the change takes effect Jan. 3, the department's front door will be locked on weekends and from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. weekdays.

Ragland acknowledged that evening hours are when most violent crimes happen, including domestic calls, assaults, larcenies, armed robberies and DWIs. But few walk in after 8 p.m. to file complaints, he said.

Kim Horton, an employee of the Kangaroo Express downtown, will miss the local hot line. She has never called 911, but many times has called the local hot line to threaten drunks into leaving the store. The convenience store has 553-4611 programmed into its speed dial.

"Nothing really happens here -- just your regular old drunk people acting stupid," she said, affectionately calling the store a "family place." "They're like big kids," she said.

"911 ... It's when we really really need [help] ... if somebody were to get hurt or robbed," she said.

The meaning behind the celebration of Christmas. A good review for us all.

The Birth of Jesus Foretold
Luke 1:26 In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,
Luke 1:27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
Luke 1:28 The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
Luke 1:29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.
Luke 1:30 But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.
Luke 1:31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.
Luke 1:32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,
Luke 1:33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
Luke 1:34 "How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?"
Luke 1:35 The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[3] the Son of God.
Luke 1:36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month.
Luke 1:37 For nothing is impossible with God."
Luke 1:38 "I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her.

Mary Visits Elizabeth
Luk 1:39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea,
Luke 1:40 where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth.
Luke 1:41 When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is thee child you will bear!
Luke 1:43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
Luke 1:44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"

Mary's Song
Luke 1:46 And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord
Luke 1:47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
Luke 1:48 for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed,
Luke 1:49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me--holy is his name.
Luke 1:50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.
Luke 1:51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
Luke 1:52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.
Luke 1:53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.
Luke 1:54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful
Luke 1:55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, even as he said to our fathers."
Luke 1:56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.

Luke 2:1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
Luke 2:2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)
Luke 2:3 And everyone went to his own town to register.
Luke 2:4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
Luke 2:5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
Luke 2:6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
Luke 2:7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

The Shepherds and the Angels
Luke 2:8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
Luke 2:9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
Luke 2:10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Luke 2:11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Luke 2:13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
Luke 2:14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
Luke 2:15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
Luke 2:16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
Luke 2:17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,
Luke 2:18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
Luke 2:19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
Luke 2:20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

I still remember

Just today, I was writing an email to a list of people. I was talking about the seasons we go through and hearing from God. Interestingly enough, I was thinking about Sept. 11th, 2001 while writing the email and later I find a reminder of that day in my inbox. Here is what I wrote:

I have a question for some of you. Why do so many people assume that God is on our time table? Every year, I get an email or hear a declaration from someone about getting the "prophetic word" for the following year. Why do we stubbornly assume that
a. we even have to get a word for the coming year
b. that God will speak at the end of one of our calendar years
c. that God will speak about the coming calendar year
d. that God is even on our calendar system

Usually, it is some crackpot prophecy catch phrase that is heard. I remember many of them over the years. Stuff like "open heaven in '97", or "come alive in '95", etc. And people buy this garbage and have great rejoicing over some "Al Sharpton wannabe" or Nipsy Russell type saying.

Yes, I do believe that the Spirit does speak to those who are willing to hear and he does reveal his secrets to his servants, the prophets. Some people I know do say that they have a burden to pray and hear at the end of the year for direction for the coming year. I have a better idea...why not be open to hearing ALL the time and live at HIS direction constantly? That is not to say that there is not advance notice given about direction, events, and seasons. I have known about seasons coming to the Body and to me in particular for a long time. Oft times, however, the seasons are shorter or longer than I would have imagined.

I do have a hard time with the end of the year declarations and so called prophecies. None the less, I do still believe in foreknowledge. Here is an example. I knew that Sept. 11th was coming in some form or fashion. I didn't hear about this by the Spirit at the end of 2000, I heard it on Sept 10th, 2001. I just didn't know how or when it was going to happen until I saw the TV coverage the next morning and watched live as the second plane hit the WTC.

Anyway, enough of my soap box pontification. Below is one of the few lists I am still subscribed to. Clay Sikes is overall "a good egg", as a former member of this list described him. I am often in agreement with much of what he writes and says. I wish him the best in his meeting.

Subject: 2006 Prophetic Decree Meeting

Dear List Members,

Seldom do I repeat meeting invitations...but felt STRONGLY impressed of the Spirit to do so. As previously mentioned, we are having a meeting (Church) at our offices in Hinesville, Georgia tomorrow morning, December 23rd, 2005 at 7:00am. At the urging of the Holy Spirit, I urge you to attend if?physically possible.

I cannot tell you in words my level of anticipation, but KNOW that God is going to decree His Word for 2006 in a powerful way!

I trust that this nudge will produce the excitement and expectation that God has released in us about this meeting.

I still think that the new World Trade Center design is totally wrong and one suggested design that I saw within a week of the destruction of the towers is more appropriate.

I'm innocent...really!

It is funny how someone's mistake can cause issues. Fortunately, this one was no big deal. A month or so ago, I ended up traveling to Matthews, NC for a training session. I got a hotel room at a Microtel Inn. I spent one night and checked out. Teresa is doing some cleaning and found the receipt/printout I got upon check out. She just came in here a few minutes ago and asked me if I shared a room with one of my coworkers, who also stayed at the same hotel. I didn't know why the question was posed. Then, she showed me the receipt, which I hadn't paid much attention to when I checked out of the hotel. It showed that there were two adults for the room. I only booked one adult in one room, so I can only assume that someone made a mistake in the checkout process.

It could be a bit of a concern to a woman when she sees evidence showing that her husband had a hotel room for two adults when he is away from home. I can see how someone could get upset over that and question it. I can only chuckle a bit about it right now, though. Gee whiz...the hotel is trying to get me into trouble.

Note to self: If I am ever stupid enough to cheat on my wife at a hotel while on a business trip, read over all receipts carefully and destroy all possibly incriminating evidence.

Bunch of sissies

I was reading this morning in my usual news spots and found this bit of info: "There was a vote in the House on Friday. The vote was on H Res 612 "Expressing the commitment of the House of Representatives to achieving victory in Iraq." Believe it or not, 108 Democrats voted no. Think about it, 108 Democrats are now on record as opposing victory in Iraq."

Just the same as voting "nay" in my opinion is voting "present", which is basically being too much of a wuss to cast a vote one way or the other. I despise non commitment more than the "nay" votes. At least the nay sayers had the guts to say they are opposed to the idea. That is bad enough, in my opinion. What a sorry bunch of representatives we have. I was looking at the NC names on the list. We need new leadership so bad, it isn't funny.

Power Ball

I can't say that I am a huge supporter of the lottery coming to North Carolina. I diverge from a lot of my peers in my indifference towards it, though. A lot of anti-gambling advocates have a huge problem with the lottery. I have a problem with it not for the arguments of sin or vice, but rather for the argument surrounding the justifications for it. The lottery, in reality, is not and never will be an "education lottery". I am very tired of hearing about things being "for the children" but in reality, they are nothing but another scheme to siphon off money from citizens for irresponsible government spending. A lottery will be no different.

I grew up in the state that had the first in the nation lottery, so it is no big deal to me. When I go "back home" to visit family, I often throw a couple of dollars at lotto tickets. No big deal. I have no feelings of condemnation about doing so as a Christian. Quite honestly, I think that most of Christendom are whacko in their stances on things above and beyond sola scriptura. But enough of that pontification.

I detest the tactics used to pass the lottery through the General Assembly here in North Carolina. There was a lot of evil trading and scheming to get it passed. It is a shame that it was done that way. Furthermore, the obvious corruption with the lottery commission members with questionable political ties just plain pisses me off.

At least one thing I read today is a glimmer of good news. If we are going to have a poorly constructed and corrupt lottery, at least the state will be joining Power Ball. That is a step in the right direction. If you gotta have the stupid system, then at least do it right. By joining with other states in playing Power Ball, at least we can have stakes in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars, thereby fleecing people with a voluntary tax. Will I buy Power Ball tickets? Probably, once in a while. Heck, I was just looking at new pick up trucks today. Unless I feel like spending an extra $500 a month on a vehicle payment for a nice truck, the lottery may be the only chance of buying one in cash.

Preambulating, preambling, rambling, whatever.

The Preamble to the North Carolina Constutution, 1868

"We, the people of the State of North Carolina, grateful to Almighty God, the Sovereign Ruler of Nations, for the preservation of the American Union and the existence of our civil, political and religious liberties, and acknowledging our dependence upon Him for the continuance of those blessings to us and our posterity, do, for the more certain security thereof and for the better government of this State, ordain and establish this Constitution. "

Separation of church and state, my butt. Get used to it.

Pistol come and pistol go

Last night, I found a good deal on a .45 auto pistol. Regardless of what many critics say, I have found Hi-Point guns to be reliable and accurate. They may be less expensive than most guns, but that doesn't mean less quality in this case. Hi-Points may not be the prettiest guns around, but they are reliable none the less. I already own two other Hi-Points, so I picked up this one knowing that it would be a good purchase. Hi-Point also has the best customer service that I have ever experienced from any company, bar none. They have a lifetime, no questions asked warranty. Whether you are the first or 101st owner, the warranty is unconditional. I bought a used carbine rifle a while back. I sent it in for a full inspection. The factory reconditioned it, gave me two new magazines, a sling and swivels, a manual, and paid for the return shipping. Awesome service.

I found the .45 at Four Seasons Sports in Goldsboro, which is where I have purchased before. This particular gun was $40 below MSRP, which is what I have seen elsewhere. I have even seen $100 over MSRP.

A friend of mine has been wanting to buy a gun for a while. I picked this one up with him in mind. I figured that if he was interested in it, I would have a new one on hand at a good price. If not, I had an addition to my collection.

I took him to the gun range today for the second time. He is really getting to enjoy shooting. After firing just a few rounds of .45 through the new pistol, he turned to me, smiled, and said, "I like!" He now has himself a new pistol.

Pains and a pain in the butt

Wow, it has been over ten days since I last posted. There isn't a whole lot to write about, really.

My back is still rather tender from pulling it, as I wrote in a previous blog entry. At least it is not as sharp as before. It is more of a continuous dull (but sometimes strong) ache. Sometimes, I can get out and do some raking in the yard, which will stretch out my back and that helps for a little while. I have to quit before I go overboard with it, though. A few days after the injury, I was doing well. Then, about a week ago, it started hurting pretty bad again. I still feel it whenever I walk or stand up for any period of time. Even sitting, my lower back gets uncomfortable after a while. At least it isn't as bad as it was at first. I can deal with this degree of discomfort.

I find it amazing how some people can be so blind and yet vociferous about it. There is one person on the internet who has made it his personal goal in life to harass, belittle, and argue with me. The reason? I disagree with his staunch views on evolution. The man is a pipeline worker in California who happens to share one common interest with me, thus we are both on the same message board. He seems to have little gun knowledge, since he rarely spends any time posting on the gun fora. Instead, he hangs out a lot in the general discussion area and looks for opportunities to inject his liberal bias and secular humanist views.

Anyone who disagrees with him is labeled as arrogant, narrow minded, and intolerant. That is typical liberal thought. The bizarre thing is that in so doing, they exceed the very accusations they make. This man is right in the liberal train of thought. It is fine for him to take shots at anyone who disagrees with "scientific evidence" and call them names, but of course we all know that he can't possible be the same. Why is that? I would say human nature, but that is not true. It is carnal nature, instead.

He tries to goad me into arguments by posting evolutionary articles. Of course, these are true science. Nothing written by men who have the same scientific credentials and have a contrary opinion are considered, since they must be biased if they believe in creation.

I find it odd that a pipeline worker will make a challenge to me to provide just a dozen names of credible scientists who profess creation over evolution. He claims that nobody has ever been able to do that for him. I provided over 25. Then the shmuck back pedals and asked me to whittle down the list for him. I refused to do so, since he "pussed out". He then proceeded to label some as kooks and a few as credible. Yeah, a pipeline worker in Southern California is qualified to segregate scientists. Yup, that is the standard bearer.

Every time I write something contrary to his belief system (make no mistake...evolution is a religion. It is not sheer science. Actually, it is pseudo science. There are more holes in evolutionary theory that Swiss cheese.) this jerk will send me a private message and try to start an argument through PM. He calls me arrogant for having an opinion and standing by it. Apparently, he is not used to the idea of a man having convictions and having both the spine and the intelligence to back it up. He ridicules me incessantly, dismisses any validity, and has even gone into name calling, personal attacks, and cussing at me. He mistakes confidence for arrogance. The Apostle Paul was confident in the God he served. He personally knew the Jesus he followed. Oh, but it is arrogant for me to stand up the way Paul, Elijah, or other Biblical characters did.

I have volumes of scientific papers and articles on scientific creationism. I used to believe in evolution when I was young and stupid. I was closed minded. I ridiculed "religious" people. The difference is that I actually started to read the evidence and science about creation versus evolution.

Just the other day, I found an article that attacks evolutionary theory written by a weirdo that believes that humans were "seeded" here by extraterrestrial beings. The neat thing is that even people like that get it in regards to the farce of evolution. Of course, since I brought up how whackos are also aware of the scientific problems with evolution. When even the whackos are attacking evolution, you have got to realize that something is wrong with what you believe. Nope, I was lumped in with the author and must be a supporter of his. How out of context and stupid that thought is.

One thing about hypocrites is that they can not recognize it in themselves, but they will sure bash others about arrogance. They are often guilty of the very things they accuse others of, making them, well, hypocrites. Jesus had no problem pointing out hypocrisy. Neither do I.

I finally got tired of this man bashing me, cussing at me, and just plain being a putz. I finally put him on ignore, meaning that none of his posts or private messages will show up when I visit that site. I am sure that he has belittled that action openly, but I won't be reading it. He has shown how puny his thought process is. He has openly shunned any thoughts of God. I am going to do exactly what the Bible says. I have been praying for him. I also refuse to allow him to personally insult me.

He has a marginal understanding of religion, which is obvious from his writings. He can not understand spiritual things, and I was told that would be the case ahead of time. Knowing that, I attempted to deal on a logical and para-scientific level. Nope, I must be a religious, ignorant bigot. If I have faith to believe God, I must be arrogant. Whatever. I just know my redeemer and what he has promised.

I have a history of back injury, unfortunately. I have hurt my back three times over the years. Yesterday, I pulled my back again. Fortunately, it is milder than any of the previous times, but it sure was uncomfortable, nay, painful. All I was doing was raking the leaves in my yard. I had not done much work with the rake before I suddenly felt the pull I am all too familiar with. I had to immediately stop, lock up the shed, and come rest in the house. I took some Aleve (actually, the store brand version) and relaxed. I am still pretty sore this morning and will try to take it easy the rest of the day. I have to drive to the office today, so I will do that and try to go easy. Some "Ben Gay" type stuff last night didn't do much good, but I was able to sleep in the bed instead of having to lay on the couch as in times past when I hurt myself pretty bad. That is a good sign.

The odd thing is that each time that I have pulled my back, it was while doing something less strenuous, faily normal activity. It seems that it is never when I am doing heavy lifting or a lot of activity, but even with those activities I do get back fatigue, just not strains like this.

On another note, I have been upgrading my web site day by day. Just this morning, I added more news feeds and a currency converter tool. Yesterday, I started a weekly restaurant review column. The site is coming along and improving almost daily.

Voter registration

This is what happens when the local Republican Party acts like a disorganized, dysfunctional family.

For their fundraising campaign in which they were recruiting people to give either a yearly or monthly membership donation (I never did get the membership card that I was promised or my secret decoder ring), people were given a postage paid envelope in which to enclose their donation. I am not talking about a permit paid envelope, I mean a first class stamped envelope. I put some literature for The Constitution Party in the envelope and mailed it back today.
