The World is Really One Place

Desmond Tutu – 1984 Nobel Peace Prize winner has shared a few thoughts.  Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all thought like this man?

What about the spouses?

We all know about the GOP 2012 presidential hopefuls – but what about their spouses?  This is an interesting little video showing pictures and a brief bio of each couple.  Who knows what the future holds?

Religion + Money = Godliness?

Interesting little article about some polling results.   White Evangelical Tea Party Republicans (Religious Right) seems to be group that believes unregulated businesses will act ethically.  This is also the group that prefers their preachers to speak out against abortion and homosexuality rather than economic  issues.  This also seems to be the group that beleives the free market is guided by the hand of God.

I also believe this is the group that will ultimately bring down the Grand Old Party.   This group has already hijacked trure Christianity so the GOP is their next victim – IMHO

Middle East Oil -continue to buy or tell them to shove it?

This is an interesting video of T. Boone Pickens and his ideas about our country’s dependence on foreign oil.   I’ve heard alot of criticism against Picken’s push to use natural gas because he has set himself up as the one to profit the most from that idea.  But if you think about it, would I rather pay the Middle East OPEC guys or would I rather pay Pickens for my energy that is coming from our own country.

Pay close attention to Pickens’ assessement of the current field of Republican presidential candidates – but then again, Pickens is right that we’ve heard alot about promises of getting off foreign oil but as of the last few decades – nobody has ever even come up with a plan to do so.

Just why do we continue to buy oil from our enemies who obviously play both sides of the fence?

Is History Poised to Repeat Itself?

This is an article about the woman I read about  a few days ago and I made a comment about the abortion issue is set to get all fired up again real soon.

  Just exactly what constitutes the legal definition  of threats to another person?  All I know is that this all seems like deja vu to me and the feeling I get is not a good one.
