As It Should Be...

***And as Glenn Reynolds points out, still probably higher than it deserves. "America's confidence in television news drops to new low."


Newspapers aren't doing much better:



Apparently people can tell when they're being manipulated. The major media has been in the Left's pocket for a long time.

***Another way to beat Obamacare.

Read this, it's really interesting.

***New Ann Coulter book, "Mugged." Gotta get this one.

***Seems our loving, tolerant Left is only tolerant if you share their views. I know, I know, you're shocked, SHOCKED! Remember the letter Brad Pitt's mom wrote? Well, she's getting death threats and the whole bit from our "tolerant" wackos on the Left.

Self-appointed Tinseltown anti-bigotry cops blew their tops. The Hollywood Reporter labeled Mrs. Pitt's letter "anti-gay." Gossip website Global Grind, founded by rap mogul Russell Simmons, called her "homophobic." Perez Hilton, an L.A.-based gossip website operator and hanger-on to the stars who fronts the "No H8" gay-marriage movement in California, pounced on Mrs. Pitt as "mommy dearest."
Hilton angrily scrawled across a photo of Mrs. Pitt with her son: "A vote for Romney is a vote for God." After taking obligatory potshots at Christians, Hilton, who calls himself the "queen of all media," fumed: "Ugh! How can one woman birth such a beautiful boy, but have such unattractive views???"
You want ugly? Hilton knows ugly. He's the same trash-mouth blogger and former beauty pageant judge who attacked Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean with misogynistic profanities in 2009 because she said she opposed legalizing gay marriage at the federal level in favor of states' rights to put the question up for a vote. "She lost not because she doesn't believe in gay marriage," Hilton railed. "She lost because she's a dumb bitch!"
You want ugly? When word of Mrs. Pitt's letter spread on social media late last week, Twitter lit up with a stream of death threats, smears and slurs. My Twitter curation site, Twitchy.com, compiled just some of the vile bile aimed at Mrs. Pitt for supporting traditional values and standing up for the unborn:
"BRAD PITT'S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H."
"Brad Pitt's mom, die"
"F*** you, Brad Pitt's mom. The gay community made your kid a star, you whacko."
"Brad Pitt's mother...what a brainless old b***h..."

Lovely.

***Jon Voight, Angelina Jolie's Dad, defends Jane Pitt. "Good for her."

***Using teeth to help restore hearing loss. Huh?

It isn't a hearing aid, which amplifies sound in frequencies where peoples' hearing is diminished. It is aimed instead at people who are completely deaf in one ear, often because of a problem in the cochlea, the spiral-shaped structure in the inner ear. About 8 million Americans were born with single-sided deafness and another 1.5 million developed it later in life, sometimes overnight for mysterious reasons. SoundBite can also help people with untreatable conductive hearing loss, which can be caused by trauma to the ear drum or chronic ear infections.
SoundBite effectively bypasses such damage. A tiny microphone in the patient's deaf ear picks up incoming sounds; a processor worn behind the ear transmits the signals wirelessly to a receiver hooked over the patient's back molars like a mini retainer. That sends the sound waves on through the teeth, into the skull to the functioning cochlea, which sends the signals on to the brain. Users can eat and talk while wearing the mouth device, which is invisible from outside.

***Redneck cupholder:


***Vote to repeal Obamacare is "First Step." Of course it won't make it past the Senate. But it WILL force the socialists we have elected to show where they stand.

While some political observers have dismissed this week’s planned House vote to repeal Obamacare as largely symbolic, physician-turned Congressman Tom Price tells Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview that it is the “first step in a process” to rid the nation of President Obama’s unpopular intrusion into America’s healthcare.

“This vote to repeal the president’s health law is the first step in a process that will repeal his law and then an open, deliberative, bipartisan process to put in place patient-centered healthcare — which for us means patients and families, and doctors making medical decisions,” declared Price, the fifth-ranking Republican in the House.
Where to start...??


***                                 WORD.



***Great devotional today from Crosswalk:

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross– Colossians 2:14

Two things must not be missed: first, Jesus is the one doing the nailing at the cross. While it is true that He allowed the Roman soldiers to pin Him down and pierce His hands and feet, fastening His body to the wood of the cross — it is also true that ultimately Jesus was in control of the entire situation.
Jesus prophesied of the cross before He ever hung on it; He also reminded His disciples that no one was able to take His life from Him, but rather He would lay it down for His people. Jesus had come into the world for a purpose, and that purpose was to die, the just for the unjust, on the cross. Ultimately, it was Jesus who was nailing our sins to His cross when He allowed himself to be crucified.
Secondly, Jesus’ action on the cross accomplished something definite. He did not just die so that some people might potentially be saved. When Jesus was crucified, the long rap sheet of our sins was blotted out; He nailed it to His cross. Therefore, those for whom Christ died are certainly saved, having no more condemnation against them.
Are you among those whose sins Jesus took upon Himself? Did Jesus Christ nail your criminal record to His cross? Then your record is clean and your sins have been blotted out.

Say a prayer for our military.

***All know the way; few actually walk it.  ~Bodhidharma

***Have a great day!
