Journalistic Malpractice

***I am so tired of the media's continual leftist, sensationalist spin on the news. My mother stayed with me last night, and the news was on. Yet another story about how police were too hard on a black man they were arresting. You've seen it - all the hype, all the interviews with black students about how cops are racist...blah blah blah. Oh...there was an afterthought, a little short blurb tagged on to the end of the story - the guy was drunk and aggressive. Apparently that doesn't matter. If you're black, the cops are just supposed to let you go on about your business whether you're breaking the law or not. The media, Sharpton, Jackson, Obama - they are all to blame for the stupid "hands up, don't shoot" line of thinking, even though that has been proven incorrect. Doesn't matter, the seed has been planted. These despicable people don't care who gets hurt as long as their narrative is promoted. After all, where would Sharpton and Jackson be if we all got along?

***Kinda unbelievable she's even considered a candidate, isn't it?

The former secretary of state summoned reporters to the United Nations, made a statement on Iran nuclear negotiations, then admitted deleting more than 30,000 e-mails she had deemed personal from the account she exclusively used while in office. This was the culmination of a deliberate, multiyear end run around congressional oversight, the Freedom of Information Act and the archiving of federal records. Documents she found inconvenient to sort while in government were convenient to destroy after leaving office.

Oh, to have a news media who was as interested in coverups and lawbreaking like this as they were in insipid stories such as how Dan Quayle spelled "potato."

***Former janitor who lived modestly lives $6 million to library and hospital.

A Vermont man who sometimes held his coat together with safety pins and had a long-time habit of foraging for firewood also had a knack for picking stocks — a talent that became public after his death when he bequeathed $6 million to his local library and hospital.
The investments made by Ronald Read, a former gas station employee and janitor who died in June at age 92, "grew substantially" over the years, said his attorney Laurie Rowell.
Read, who was known for his flannel shirt and baseball cap, gave no hint of the size of his fortune.
"He was unbelievably frugal," Rowell said Wednesday. When Read visited her office, "sometimes he parked so far away so he wouldn't have to pay the meter."

And then she said... "Stay off the couch while I'm gone!"

***13 inventive ways to use your microwave.

Save Stamps

Messed up the address on an envelope? To remove a stamp from a mislabeled envelope, put a drop of water on it, then microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. It should peel off easily, but might need a bit of extra glue to stick to the next envelope.

Boost Your Perennials

Most bagged soils come pre-sterilized, but as soon as you open the bag, the soil is exposed to pathogens in your house or garden that could kill your blooms. Instead of waiting for sunlight to kill off the bad bacteria, you can sterilize soil for potted plants with your microwave. First, fill a container with a thin layer of soil, then microwave for 60 seconds per pound of soil.

Disinfect Sponges

According to the USDA, one of the most dangerous sources of disease-causing bacteria in your home is your dish sponge. Stick your damp sponge in the microwave and zap it for 60 seconds. Doing this each week can help destroy 99.9 percent of most household general germs and around 99.8 percent of E. coli and salmonella.

First and foremost, successful couples in the Bible had God at the center of their relationships. That’s evident when they made wise decisions, of course. But it also shows up in their mistakes. They learned from their blunders and relied on God to right their path.

*** From the Founding Fathers blog:

On July 4, 1776, 56 representatives from the original 13 colonies in America chose to begin a new nation. They declared our independence from Great Britain with an inspired document. That was the beginning of the United States of America.
Eventually the leaders of the new nation realized that they needed a new “rule book” with written rules to govern the new nation. Fifty-five representatives from these States created a new rule book. They provided the States with the new Constitution of the United States, adopted September 17, 1787. This new Constitution was 4,543 words long.
These Founding Fathers created a government that was so structured that all the power was to lie in the hands of the People. The People were to remain supreme and the government was to have ONLY those powers granted to it by the People and written into this Constitution. This was a brand new concept. It had never before been attempted.
As one of our Founding Fathers, John Adams, said:  “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
And James Madison, who is known as the Father of the Constitution warned future generations:  “We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the Commandments of God.”

Oh, how far we have fallen.
