A group of theologians present Jerry (John Denver) with a set of questions to ask God.

TM & © Warner Bros. (2012)
Cast: Jeff Corey, John Denver, Donald Pleasence, Paul Sorvino, Barry Sullivan, Titos Vandis
Director: Carl Reiner
Producer: Jerry Weintraub
Screenwriter: Avery Corman, Larry Gelbart
Film Description: Adapted by Larry Gelbart from the novel by Avery Corman, the film stars John Denver as Jerry Landers, the assistant manager of a grocery store who is chosen by God (George Burns) to spread the Word to the rest of the world. Not surprisingly, Jerry is soon labelled a basket case: even his loving wife Bobbie (Teri Garr) doubts her husband’s sanity. But there’s enough evidence on Jerry’s side for a panel of prominent clerics to demand that the hapless fellow prove in court that he’s the agent of God. Donald Pleasence was supposed to have an extended supporting role in the film, but the first cut ran too long, and Pleasence’s dialogue was eliminated — but not Pleasence himself, who retains his prominent billing and is seen doing precisely nothing in several scenes. Netting $30 million on its first run, Oh God was followed by two lesser sequels, both featuring Burns. “

BlazeTV is the perfect venue for Duck Dynasty and the Robertson Clan’s family values . Great idea Brad .

 

 

Update : Beck jumps into the Duck Dynasty fray …

 

GLENN BECK MAKES A VERY EXCITING OFFER TO THE CAST OF ‘DUCK DYNASTY’

 

 

” “Duck Dynasty on TheBlaze” has a nice ring to it, according to Glenn Beck.

  One day after Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality earned him an indefinite suspension from the hit series “Duck Dynasty” on A&E, Beck offered the entire Robertson family a place on his own network.

“ [All the other networks] will fold to pressure,” he said. “They will all fold to sponsors. They will all fold to money because they are all in over their eyeballs are debt … the only reason why Phil was put on hiatus and not the rest is because it is a money-printing machine.” “

 

 

From Duck Commander.com

 

 

 

” We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.  The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision.  We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.  While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.  We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.   Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red Skelton & The Pledge of Allegiance

” This is a classic – I heard it a long time ago and I’m glad to have this clip now. It’s a shame that the elites today – captains of industry, jet-setters, politicians, bankers, and the ultra-wealthy – now consider themselves above allegiance to America. This includes Barack Hussein Obama and his shrew Michelle, who refuse to call themselves AMERICANS, but instead HE calls himself a ‘citizen of the world’. What an obamination to call one’s self a global citizen….

Especially poignant are Skelton’s comments about the symbology of the flag, the sovereignty of our states, the nature of our Republic, “indivisible”, and “liberty and justice for all”…

The sovereignty of our states was dealt a mighty blow with the War Between the States, properly titled “The War of Northern Aggression”, but colloquially referred to as “The Civil War”. The 17th Amendment was the last nail in the coffin, stripping the ability of the states to stop an out-of-control federal government by recalling their senators.

I’m not sure at what point exactly we stopped being a Republic. Some will say it happened when Barack Obama became President, but it actually began long ago. I would argue that it happened in earnest during October 2008, when the ‘financial crisis’ that threatened total economic collapse was used to loot our treasury wholesale with a ‘blank check’. In any event, our government is now socialist. It controls portions of our financial sectors, the housing market, the automotive industry (i.e.,”Government Motors”), the insurance industry, health-care, ad nauseam.

Skelton correctly identifies the pecking order between the government and the people: the people are supposed to be in charge. How I miss those days!

He speaks of “indivisible” – yet today, the elites manipulate the masses with a false left-right political paradigm that divides the people between left/liberal/Democrat and right/conservative/Republican. This false paradigm conveniently ignores Libertarians, the Constitution Party, authoritarian vs. libertarian governance, and the 1001 permutations of our American political landscape. Instead, the people align themselves along left/right like sheep, and through our divisions we are being conquered.

Liberty. Oh, to have the full measure of it now, like an asthmatic struggling for just one unobstructed deep breath. People have no notion of what real freedom would be like because they lack the perspective of American history. Not what Rosa Parks had, but what she hoped for. Not what we have today, but what the founders and millions of American Patriots throughout our history aspire for us to have. Certainly NOT what the globalist elites have in store for us.

Justice… well, what can I say? America now incarcerates over 2 million people, more than even Communist China. Per capita, we are without peer in the imprisonment of our fellow citizens. To be sure, we have a large criminal class in our society because we have taken God out of the schools and allowed our children to be taught “values clarification”, “situation ethics”, or whatever politically correct name you may have for moral relativism. We criminalize behaviors that involve no victim and punish violations of the same without mercy. We use these statutes to wage a larger ‘war on liberty’, which in turn undermines our rights to property (civil asset forfeiture), freedom from self-incrimination (entrapment), even our right to travel unmolested (checkpoints) and our freedom of speech (zones).

Are you proud of a government that has forbidden our children to even speak of God in our schools? Or the thousand other things inconsistent with our heritage of liberty?

I suggest we begin reciting a “Constitution Pledge” to help restore respect for all the things we hold sacred in the Pledge of Allegiance. It would read:
I pledge allegiance to the Constitution for the united States of America, and to the Republic for which our flag stands, one nation under Almighty God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”

HIGH SCHOOL TRACK TEAM DISQUALIFIED FOR RELIGIOUS GESTURE

 

 

 

 

 

” Some people are outraged after a high school track team is disqualified from competing in state finals because one runner made a religious gesture. In myfoxhouston.com: just a few seconds the boys Columbus High School 4 X 100 relay team went from winning the regional meet, heading to state championships to having it all stripped away. How did the “W” so quickly become “DQ”? Well. when the anchor of the relay team crossed the finish line, he won the race, raised his finger to the sky and that gesture caused the winning regional’s relay team to be disqualified. 
“It’s a harsh consequence for what some people may deem a small gesture. The rule states no celebratory gestures including raising your arms,” explains Columbus I.S.D. Superintendent Robert O’Connor. According to the UIL the relay team was disqualified for “unsporting conduct”. The UIL also points out, it does not have a rule prohibiting religious expression. “You can do whatever you want to in terms of prayer, kneeling or whatever you want to once you get out of the competition area. You just can’t do it in the competition area. It goes back to the taunting rule. I can’t taunt my opponent,” O’Connor explains.”

Rewriting The Bible: The Gospel According To Liberals

 

 

 

 

” When liberals and their media allies have an agenda to push, they’ll use any tool at hand. The left often rails against the presence of religion in civic life, mocking conservative Christians as “Taliban” agitating for theocracy. But other times, they find faith to be a handy weapon to bludgeon conservatives. And they’ll go so far as to reinterpret and rewrite the Bible to justify any liberal cause, no matter how outrageous.

In 2010, MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry summed up this strategy in her call for “re-imagining the Bible as a tool of progressive social change.” Huffington Post contributor Mike Lux embraced Harris-Perry’s advice, writing that the Bible embodies “all kinds” of “liberal, lefty, progressive values.”

The Media Research Center’s Culture and Media Institute analyzed the various ways liberals and the media have used and abused the Bible to mock religion, attack conservatives and justify left-wing policy.

Harris-Perry’s “re-imagining” of the Bible has become a favorite liberal tactic, as journalists and politicians have cited it to promote socialism, gay marriage, abortion and a host of other progressive policies. Washington Post “On Faith” contributor Anthony Stevens-Arroyo argued that the Bible was the inspiration for Karl Marx’s dictum “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” Huffington Post contributor Kittredge Cherry claimed Jesus Christ was a homosexual: “Christ lives in every individual of every different shade of sexual orientation and gender identity.” Writer Nynia Chance proclaimed that the Bible supported abortion on RH Reality Check: “there’s times where the Bible states God commands that one [abortion] take place.” “

OH, GOD!

School Removed God Reference From first-Grader’s Poem

 

 

 

 

 

” An elementary school in North Carolina censored a first-grade student’s Veterans Day poem by removing a line that referenced her grandfather’s belief in God.

The West Marion Elementary School student was supposed to read the poem at a Nov. 8 Veterans Day ceremony to honor her grandfather, a Vietnam veteran.

The deleted line read: “He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength.”

An attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which advocates for religious rights and freedoms, criticized the school’s decision. “

Happy Thanksgiving America

THANKSGIVING VS. SOCIALISM

HOLIDAY COLUMN BY JOHN STOSSEL — 21 NOV 2007 

 

  ” Think Thanksgiving is about “sharing”? Think again. The first Thanksgiving couldn’t happen until the colonists learned to forgo communitarian principles and, instead, live on private property.

Every year around this time, schoolchildren are taught about that wonderful day when Pilgrims and Native Americans shared the fruits of the harvest. “Isn’t sharing wonderful?” say the teachers.

They miss the point.

Because of sharing, the first Thanksgiving in 1623 almost didn’t happen.

The failure of Soviet communism is only the latest demonstration that freedom and property rights, not sharing, are essential to prosperity. The earliest European settlers in America had a dramatic demonstration of that lesson, but few people today know it.

When the Pilgrims first settled the Plymouth Colony, they organized their farm economy along communal lines. The goal was to share everything equally, work and produce.

They nearly all starved.

Why? When people can get the same return with a small amount of effort as with a large amount, most people will make little effort. Plymouth settlers faked illness rather than working the common property. Some even stole, despite their Puritan convictions.

Total production was too meager to support the population, and famine resulted. Some ate rats, dogs, horses and cats. This went on for two years.

“So as it well appeared that famine must still ensue the next year also, if not some way prevented,” wrote Gov. William Bradford in his diary. The colonists, he said, “began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery.

“At length after … much debate of things, [I] (with the advice of the chiefest among them) gave way that they should set corn every man for his own particular, and in that regard trust to themselves. And so assigned to every family a parcel of land.”

The people of Plymouth moved from socialism to private farming. The results were dramatic.

“This had very good success,” Bradford wrote, “for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been. By this time harvest was come, and instead of famine, now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many. . “

Because of the change, the first Thanksgiving could be held in November 1623.

What Plymouth suffered under communalism was what economists today call the tragedy of the commons. But the problem has been known since ancient Greece. As Aristotle noted, “That which is common to the greatest number has the least care bestowed upon it.”

When action is divorced from consequences, no one is happy with the ultimate outcome. If individuals can take from a common pot regardless of how much they put in it, each person has an incentive to be a free rider, to do as little as possible and take as much as possible because what one fails to take will be taken by someone else. Soon, the pot is empty and will not be refilled — a bad situation even for the earlier takers.

What private property does — as the Pilgrims discovered — is connect effort to reward, creating an incentive for people to produce far more. Then, if there’s a free market, people will trade their surpluses to others for the things they lack. Mutual exchange for mutual benefit makes the community richer.

Secure property rights are the key. When producers know that their future products are safe from confiscation, they will take risks and invest. But when they fear they will be deprived of the fruits of their labor, they will do as little as possible.

That’s the lost lesson of Thanksgiving. ” 

 

 

 

Take It From Someone Who Knows 

 

The ” People’s ” Housing 

 

  ” Twenty-four years ago, I was a political refugee exiled from communist Romania to freedom in America.  But today, America is in need of freedom.  Socialism is spreading in America like a horrible sickness.  It is time for those of us who experienced socialism to speak up.

Socialism is a false ideology and is contrary to the American capitalism system.  American capitalism promotes free-market and individual freedom, while the Socialist system replaces the free market with government control and eradicates private property, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, religious rights, and national self-determination.

Romania was once a rich capitalist country, with a free-market economy, good health care, and a great school system.  Bucharest, the capital, was called “Little Paris.”  But soon after Nicolae Ceausescu was elected president in 1965, everything changed.

Socialism is against wealth.  It confiscates and distributes its citizens’ wealth, destroying productivity and individual self-worth.  In the name of promoting “fair share,” “justice,” and “equality,” socialism turns most of its people equally into poor people, while the elite leaders enjoy a lavish lifestyle. “

” Wasserman Schultz calls Jerusalem omission from platform a ‘technical error’ “

  “Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) explained the exclusion of language recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in the 2012 Democratic national platform as a “technical error” that had not been discussed at all during the drafting process. 

“Essentially, with Jerusalem, it was a technical omission and nothing more than that,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday on CNN. “There was never any discussion or debate commentary over adding or subtracting it.” “

 

   Debbie , Debbie , Debbie… We’ve seen the video of the floor vote . After three attempts to reach a two thirds majority vote it was called in favor of including Jerusalem and God in your platform but the voice vote was in no way a conclusive majority , hence the booing from your delegates on the announcement that the motion had passed. 

  You need to remember that thanks to AlGore we can fact-check your a.. with impunity . You resemble “Baghdad Bob” more with each passing day .
