We've Moved!

Welcome to a blog that is now an archive of the middle-Bush43 years! The fur is now flying at our new location! You know, the site I spend most of my vacation setting up! The one in which I will post my first official post two seconds from now!

Oh, screw subtlety! Our new URL is! Now (pretty please) get over there, and tell everybody you know to go over there, and keep going there every single minute of every single hour of every single day of the rest of their lives and turn into the biggest megablog on the Internet! How else am I ever going to be able to blog for a living, get rich, and retire to a desert island full of naked women and Zefram Cochrane!?!

And don't expect to find any exclamation points over there; I've just used up a decade's worth.

Kevin Nash used to say, "Come on the other side."

Profitable For Growth

10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings — what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the LORD rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

-2 Timothy 3:10-17

Oliver and Hugo Sittin' In A Tree...

If you still need to be convinced that Hollywood is a cesspool, check this out:

American filmmaker Oliver Stone praised President Hugo Chavez on Friday as the Venezuelan leader launched a mission to airlift three hostages held by leftist rebels out of Colombia’s jungles.
Stone, standing near Chavez, said he was working on a film and hoped to accompany the humanitarian operation into Colombia.

“I’m doing a documentary about Latin America and also about North America. You have to wait around to see it,” Stone told reporters. He said he planned to take part in the mission, calling it a “beautiful, great process.”

“I’m hoping it works. I’m all for this,” Stone said.

The Oscar-winning director, who made a 2003 documentary about Cuban President Fidel Castro as well as the movie “Platoon,” called Chavez a “great man” and said “I’m a fan.”

Urging Stone to speak with reporters, Chavez told him in accented English: “The girls want to see you!” He joked that Stone was President Bush’s “envoy.”

“There are some good Americans. That’s why I’m here, to remind you,” Stone said.

If that last line ain't enough to make you lose your breakfast, I don't know what is. I rarely go to the movies anyway, because there is seldom anything playing that I want to see, but another good reason is in order not to support creeps like Oliver Stone.

The Belayers

13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the LORD, because from the beginning God chose you [a] to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ. 15 So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings [b] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

16 May our LORD Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, Who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

-2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

A Final Appeal For Iowan Sanity

VBC Missionaries Of The Week: Roy & Elvia Sprague

Roy serves as minister-at-large for Northwest Independent Church Extension. He travels extensively with Elvia, speaking in churches, conferences, advances, and camps, as well as representing the mission. In 2006 Roy was privileged to serve as interim pastor for a church in Olympia (thus disproving the overpowering assumption that the Donk-dominated state government had them all banned and bulldozed years ago). Roy is also president of the Pacific Northwest Regional of IFCA International.

Their daughter, Judi Allen, is also a VBC missionary.

Pelosi Softening? Not Likely

When I saw this over at Michelle Malkin's blog, the possibility that Nancy Pelosi is sincere about this phone call really didn't occur to me. Actions speak louder than words. She has spent the last seven years doing everything she can to undermine our military, now she's phoning the father of fallen hero Sgt. Eddie Jeffers to offer her condolences? Smacks of political calculation to me. Sgt. Jeffers' father said she was very gracious, and I'm glad. But I don't believe she was sincere for a moment. Read the whole thing, and read Sgt. Jeffers' words, which were written back in February. She didn't seem to care much about what he thought then, did she?

I'm not usually overly cynical, but talk is cheap, and Nancy Pelosi is cheaper.

It Is Not Good

15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."

18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam [a] no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man's ribs [b] and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib [c] He had taken out of the man, and He brought her to the man.

23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, [d] ' for she was taken out of man."

24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

-Genesis 2:15-25
