Nothing New Under the Sun

***Pastor James preached a great sermon this morning from Jeremiah, chapter 7. It was about how Israel had turned from the Lord, received repeated warnings and second chances, but still remained in the darkness.  They were stealing, murdering, following after false gods, leading their children astray, and even offering up their children as sacrifices to their false gods. I couldn't help but notice the parallels to our world today. We have turned away from God, and are suffering the consequences. Not that God is pouring out his wrath on us; we are simply reaping what we've sown. We allow unborn children to be murdered, and can't figure out why life holds no value to so many. We advocate letting kids "do their own thing" and "be themselves," then can't figure out why they have no self control. We teach people that they are owed something simply by virtue of being alive, and can't understand why so many would rather steal than earn what they have. And on it goes.

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Will we ever learn?

***Rep. Jan Schatkowsky's politically driven "Live the Wage" stupidity has backfired.

Not having damaged the economy enough already, the Democrats keep pushing to raise the minimum wage. Here’s the “thinking”: If you give people more money, then they’ll have more money. More money is good. Yay!
And what’s a dumb policy push without a dumb Twitter hashtag? Ladies and gentlemen: #LiveTheWage.

 Read the piece, and behold yet another dumb Democrat woman. 


***Thank you, clueless Obama voter: At least 30,000 more migrants get U.S. classroom seats. What part of "illegal" are you not getting, Mr. Obama?

American kids and teenagers will be sharing their already-crowded classrooms with tens of thousands of ill-educated Central American migrants this fall, because President Obama is distributing perhaps 100,000 Central American migrants across the country.
The Central American student “have very, very limited amounts of education [and] in some cases, they cannot count to 10,” said Caroline Woodason, assistant director for student support at the public schools in Dalton, Ga. “They can’t turn on a computer. They’ve never even seen a computer,” she told the Dalton Daily Citizen.
In Fairfax, Va., “teachers [are] dealing with children not just learning English but years below expected grade/achievement level,” education specialist Robin Hamby, told The Washington Post. In early 2014, her district already had 5,192 Central American students, up 22 percent since 2011.

 Next problem: Teacher shortage. Not too many will want to put up with this, I'll wager.

Maybe a shot of B12 is in order....

***Hey, there are still some judges who respect the law. Federal judge rules DC gun ban unconstitutional.

A federal judge in the District of Columbia on Saturday overturned the city’s total ban on residents being allowing to carry firearms outside their home in a landmark decision for gun-rights activists.
Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that the right to bear arms extends outside the home, therefore gun-control laws in the nation’s capital are “unconstitutional.”

***7 fad diets you shouldn't try. Well really, you shouldn't try any of 'em.
