The US Constitution

   With a nod to the Tea Party, the Republicans taking over the House of Representatives next week will read the Constitution aloud, in its entirety. It's something that has never been done in the chamber's 221-year history. Many in the Tea Party feel Congress has strayed far from the country's founding principles.

Outer View
By Old Willy Longbeard
   I done read in the paper this morning a story that said, “The Obama administration is expressing alarm over reports that thousands of political separatists and captured Taliban insurgents have disappeared into the hands of Pakistan’s police and security forces.”
   Well now, that be the strangest thing. The president’s alarm clock goes off over something like that, but he regularly sends those drone airplane things up in the air and zaps hundreds of people dead with them and no alarms go off then.
   I thinks he’s got some strange alarm clocks.

Conversations Heard Around The Area

   A locally run old-age care home, aided greatly by volunteer help, has had its financial situation tossed into tatterland by the entrance of an “outside the community” union.
   Another local municipality has buried a new water line in a residential section of town. The workers are now scurrying around like ground-hogs digging up the streets and alleys again, in bits and pieces, as the Chinese-made pipe keeps springing new leaks.

Putting Our Size In Perspective

   There are times when we think too highly of ourselves. Perhaps there are even times when we think we are god in our own life. 
   Sometimes it is good to look at the bigger picture of God’s spoken creation and put our size into a bit of perspective!
   Current data informs us that the visible universe contains an estimated 100 billion galaxies, each with a diameter millions of trillions of miles wide, and with each galaxy containing hundreds of billions of stars.
   The universe is home to more than a billion trillion stars. 
   If one circled the earth seven times in one second, it would require at least 28 billion years to cross the universe at the same speed.
   Our sun heats the earth and creates all the energy that drives our weather systems with only one-billionth of its energy.
   One million earths would fit inside our sun.
   The largest known star, VY Canis Majoris, can accommodate 9,200,000,000 of our suns.

Saturday, December 4, 2010


   People that hold power are very indignant about WikiLeaks.
   They vilify their release and those associated with them.
   Those well-paid noisemakers aside, it is refreshing to get raw information that is not controlled or manufactured by governments or their accomplices. 
   The WikiLeaks revelations also awaken a few questions. Why do governments ever have secrets? Ever? Why aren’t they open, transparent and honest all the time? Did the common people elect their representatives to keep secrets from them, to hold matters close and guarded? Why aren’t they just open and honest all the time?
   People who have nothing to hide are not worried about being exposed.
   Only those that deliberately live in darkness are afraid of the light.

Airport Solution

   Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports:  
   All we need to do is develop a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have hidden on or in your body. The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth. 
   This would be a win-win for everyone. There would be no racial profiling and the device would eliminate long and expensive trials. This is so simple it's brilliant! 
   One can see it now: you're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system, "Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight number such and such!

Jackasses! Liars, Liars, Liars

   The provincial government made great promises of providing new housing for seniors and handicapped people. With great joy municipalities and community groups made the preparations for their part of the projects. As time moved along the government then told most groups that there was not enough money anymore.
   And now just three weeks after announcing a 15% income tax cut, the B.C. government announced Wednesday it is scrapping the plan.   
   The 15% cut was announced on Oct. 27. It would have applied to the first $72,293 of personal income and would have taken effect Jan. 1.
   If someone cries out "What jackasses! Liars, liars, liars", there would appear to be great justification for such expression.

Germany’s Freiheit Party Joins the Fray

   A new German political party, Die Freiheit (The Freedom), had its inaugural meeting on October 28 in Berlin. I was in town, so its leadership invited me to be the only non-member of the nascent party to witness and report on its founding constituent assembly.

   As a reminder of how freedoms have eroded in Europe in this age of Islamist terror, a political party that resists Islamization and supports Israel cannot come into existence in broad daylight. So, like the other 50-plus attendees, I learned of the event’s time and location only shortly before it took place.

Politicians Not Connected To People

   MacLean’s magazine was very clear in its coverage that Quebec is the most corrupt province in Canada.
   Politicians, both federal and provincial, howled with fury and outrage that the magazine dared to speak such truth. There were self-righteous screams of xenophobia and bigotry.
   However, a poll shows that most Canadians agree with the story. The portion of Canadians that agreed the most are Quebecers.
   This underlines a major fact in Canada. Politicians have lost all touch with the citizens. They live in a different world.
   How long will it be before Canadian citizens rise up and say enough of the phony self-serving thieves?
   The politicians have their fingers very deep in all our pockets and have made absolutely sure that they have taken good care of themselves, including extremely rich pensions after only six years. 
   They have also made sure that only their people have the guns.

Outer View

   Well, I got myself back in court for a look-see. It has been a few years since the last time I was there.
   The first thing I noticed was the mass of cigarette butts strewn on the ground by the front door. It made me think of despair and foolishness mixed together in a big mess.
   I did see a graduation. A troublesome fellow who was pampered by the courts as a youth has now graduated up to adult court. He now has breeches of probation, obstruction of the police, excessive use of alcohol, and assault offenses. So far he is still pampered. The prosecutor says next time though it won’t be so good for him.
   What one notices on most of the faces of the accused is that there is no sense of any wrong-doing; rather there seems to be a sense of inconvenience at having to be at court.
   There was one older woman who was arrested for damaging the cenotaph. She claims she was only repairing it and cleaning it up some. My whiskers shake at such shenanigans.

The Gap Between The Swearers And The Worshipers

   I am watching — no it jumps out at me — people who curse Jesus in almost every sentence they speak. It’s “Jesus” this and “Oh Christ” that, with a whole lot of extra “Jesus Christ’s” thrown into their dialogue. 
   It’s very odd that they choose those words to swear with. Why don’t they curse their mother, or dog, or teacher or the guy down the street? Why Jesus Christ all the time?  Very odd behaviour indeed. It is like an obsession.
   They madly spin their wheels in life but get no traction. They are in the same place they were ten years ago, complaining and grumbling all the while — blaming and bad-mouthing other people for their problems. It is always someone else or a group of other people that are the problem. The problem is never them.
   In contrast, I see those who have accepted Jesus’ forgiveness, turned their life over to Him and have a continual intimate and loving relationship with their Saviour and they just grow and grow and grow, even those in difficult and seemingly impossible situations. They have surrendered their own efforts to, and totally rely upon, their Creator. 
   Jesus is their source.
   They are like plants in the garden, always unfurling new leaves and suddenly sprouting surprisingly unexpected buds. I marvel at how the Lord works that!  A wonder indeed! It warms the heart to see.

Once Upon A Time

   Once upon a time there was a very small town with a very big judge. The town people, and those in all the land around, knew this judge to be very just and thoroughly fair. The people also knew this judge was deeply loving.
   The law in this town was different and more absolute than the lax laws of Canada or the selective and loopholed laws of the United States. You see, in this town there was only one penalty when someone broke the law. The penalty was death.
   One day in this small town, a man, whom the judge loved very much, apparently broke the law. He was, in fact, the judge’s very best friend.
   This event set the whole town abuzz. “What would the judge do if the court found him guilty?” they wondered. “Could he set his friend free or would he give the death penalty?”
   When the day of the trial arrived, the entire town came to the courthouse to watch. Indeed, what would the judge do?
   The judge’s friend came before the judge. It quickly became clear that there would be no trial because the judge’s friend immediately pleaded guilty.
   The townsfolk became quizzical and uneasy. Surely the judge would not send his best friend, a person whom he loved very much, to death. That would not be loving at all. Yet, if he did not sentence the death penalty, then he would no longer be a just and true judge because he would no longer be fulfilling the law. Whatever would happen here? Trepidation lay in their midst as they watched to see what the judge would choose.
    The judge paused and looked lovingly at his friend. “My friend, I have know you since you were a child. I have loved you always. I always will.
   “However, in this case before me, you have pleaded guilty; I have no choice but to give the death sentence. Justice and the law require it.” He then brought the gavel down with thud.
   The town folk were shocked. “How could he do that to his friend?” they asked each other. “Surely, he is less than loving.” At the same time they were well aware that if he had not done that, then he would have been a less that just judge. They shook their heads, perplexed.
   But the judge was not finished. He stood up, took off his robe, looked down at his friend and calmly said, “My friend, I will serve the death sentence for you. I will substitute in your place. The law will then be satisfied, the penalty will have been paid and you may go free.”
   Thus, in this little town, the judge delivered both conclusive justice and ultimate love at the same time.
   The gospel message was delivered.

Look Who Is Not Cleaning Up

   Scrambling to avoid political damage from the biggest oil spill ever, President Obama seeks in ever-more-strident announcements to convince himself and the rest of the world that he is in charge and that all will soon be well. The curtain is pulled back on Barack "The Wiz" Obama. The picture is not pretty.
   The Wiz is finger-pointing, shape-shifting and spinning like a dervish. It isn't working. People noticed when the Wiz chose to go to a fundraiser for Barbara Boxer instead of attending the funeral of the 11 men who perished in the BP oil-rig explosion.
   Worse, the basic inefficiency of Big Government coupled with the union and environmentalist political hammerlock on the Wiz has delayed common-sense solutions and blocked needed assistance. The latest atrocity is a union veto of offers of assistance from the Netherlands and Belgium – countries with cleanup technology and ships not available in the U.S.

It has murdered Palestinian Authority supporters in hospitals and thrown them off roofs; driven the Christians out; taken relief supplies for its own soldiers; launched a war on Israel in December 2008 that caused avoidable death and destruction, and used civilians as human shields and mosques for ammunition dumps,” Mr. Rubin said.
