Losing is good: Stranger Things Have Happened I Know

Dave Jolly has pulled the first upset of the 2014 election cycle in FL-13 over Democrat Alex Sink.  Pundits on the Right have begun to cautiously speak of  a bellwether victory, and a harbinger of things to come.  Optimistic talk for sure, but frankly something that ought scare the pants off Democrats (sorry for that visual).

However for Debbie Schultz, losing isn’t such a bad thing:

“Tonight, Republicans fell short of their normal margin in this district because the agenda they are offering voters has a singular focus – that a majority of voters oppose – repealing the Affordable Care Act* that would return us to the same old broken health care system,”

If this is encouraging news in a Florida district that was carried twice by Obama, then how encouraged should the Left be?  In the most recent nationwide approval ratings, Obamacare is still  20 points upside-down.

IKR?

So, is there a silver lining for the Left? I say yes, and it has nothing to do with Schultz’s hastily cobbled talking points.

The real loser here I think is Rand Paul who came out in support of Overby, the Libertarian.  In a race that was decided by less than 2 points, Paul would have had a lot of ‘splaining to do had Overby proven to be the spoiler.  Perhaps “loser” is too strong.  But, any time Republicans bicker among themselves, Dems smile, and the Leftist media machine has more ammo to try to control the next news cycle.

I fully expect to hear some comments from Ted Cruz to follow shortly, as the contest between he and Paul for the direction of the GOP continues.  I also expect those comments to be mischaracterized, as media shills continue to try and deflect the public’s attention away from President Obama’s signature achievement.

Stranger things have happened, I know.

Romans 1: 19-20

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

 
Luke 6:35

…do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again;

 

The video which follows was produced in Thailand, “The Land of the Free.”

 
If I ever needed evidence of  “that which may be known of God is manifest in them,”   it is presented here.

Certainly, the Spirit of the Gospel is alive and well in southeast Asia.

The video is poignant, thought-provoking, and extremely well-made.  Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

Best Commercial Of 2013

Sharks are about as useful as rats, but they are far more entertaining.

I’ll never forget a visit I made to Manila back in 1974. The huge open market was buzzing with the knowledge that an enormous great white shark had been caught and was being brought to the market.

The crowd was huge and most were eagerly waiting for a chance to buy some of the meat. As the shark was hoisted up by its tail the enormity of the fish was amazing. Then a man stepped up with a sharp knife and gutted it. The contents of its stomach came flooding out, including obvious remnants of a human.

The crowd gasped and quickly dispersed. I don’t know if they sold any of that meat that day.

I still laugh about that event to this day.

Rubio’s Victory Speech A Real Stemwinder

I began to learn a little about Marco Rubio during the 2008 Florida Primary, when as an influential state legislator, Rubio endorsed Mike Huckabee for President. The more I got to know about Rubio, the more impressed I became.

I also recall a good interview of Rubio by K-Lo over at NRO, shortly before Rick Santelli’s famous rant on CNBC. That rant gave rise to the tea party movement.

Maybe Rubio was just the right guy at the right time. But, not long after that, the groundswell for a Marco Rubio candidacy to oppose the “inevitable” nomination of Charlie Crist began to grow.

Last night’s victory speech for Senator-elect Rubio was outstanding. It is a real pleasure to present it to you.

William Ayers and the Times Square Jihadi

I wonder if Billy Ayers is willing to apply his same definition of terrorism to the Times Square wannabe bomber..

William Ayers says his organization, the Weather Underground, was not a terrorist organization because they never “killed people.”

Neither did the Times Square Jihadi. Or the Detroit Underwear Bomber… or even Richard Reid, for that matter..

A point to ponder

FYI: After viewing the video, I pulled out my Strong’s Dictionary of Bible Words to run a quick fact-check on the author’s claims.

It didn’t match up.

But, just to be sure, I cross-referenced with my copy of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

Guess what?

It matched up, exactly as the video said.

I don’t know what to make of this yet. Coincidence or not, it is remarkable.

And, I believe I am supposed to tell you this:

Be strong. Be bold. Stand.

Record Debt, Record Spending, HR 3200

Record debt, record spending, and new freebies to encourage illegal immigration rather than enforce the border.

(See page 170 sec 401, and page 91 sec 204 in n2l’s critique of H.R. 3200)

Yet, Obama continues down another wrong-headed path.

But it does fit the Obama modus operandi. You may recall from the campaign, that candidate Obama characterized ICE immigration enforcement action as terrorist raids.

What? You mean you never heard anything like that from the MSM?

Well now, imagine that!

Here is a quick clip from Obama’s speech to La Raza.
