Bible reading 2014

For the Christian, a regular Bible reading schedule is of paramount importance. The Bible is God's primary way of communicating with us.

For the non-Christian, the Bible reveals His history of the world, a glimpse into the future, and His plan for you.

Several years ago, a friend, Martin, introduced me to a Bible arranged in chronological order. The text was arranged in the order that the historical events occurred.

Fast forward to recent years: I have been using the New Living Translation (NLT) of the Bible for regular reading and study. To me, it is the most readable, most easily understood version available. I recently found a chronological Bible in this translation. We will be going through it in the coming year.

If you have been looking for a Bible reading plan for 2014, this is a good one to consider.

This Bible is available at local Christian stores, and at Amazon, by clicking on this link:




Happy New Year!

Why restore Phil to Duck Dynasty?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Never forget. Liberal media, whether print, digital or video, have two basic objectives:
  1. Promoting their leftist agenda.
  2. Making money.
 These objectives are not always compatible, so when the first interferes with the second, they have to find a way to move away from the knee-jerk reaction of the first, and keep the cash flowing in.

Hey Phil, when this contract is up, perhaps you and the fam should look for another network.

Android phones from Tracfone

Been wanting a smartphone, but not interested in paying an arm and a leg for a plan with the major carriers?

Then take a look at Tracfone's new Androids. The Samsung Galaxy Centura, is available from Amazon HERE for $110 $100.This is an entry level phone, but with full Android capability. The screen is smaller than I would prefer, but look at the monthly cost of operation:

  • For a $40.00/90 day card, you get 200 minutes per month, 200 texts, and 200 MB of data. This card is going for $34.99 at Amazon right now. Translation: less than $12/month.
  • For about $20.00, you get a card that gives you 60 of each of the above per month.

These 3G phones use Verizon towers, so they work wherever Verizon phones do.

If you want to get into smartphones, without the high cost, this is the best option I could find out there.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Knockout game vs awareness color codes

There has been much in the news of late about the knockout game, in which a thug surprises an unsuspecting victim with a roundhouse blow, or perhaps a stun gun. Some victims have amazing empathy for their attackers. (These have a propensity for removing themselves from the gene pool.)

But the rest of us might review Cooper's Color Codes of Awareness:
             White Relaxed, unaware, and unprepared     
                    Yellow Relaxed alertness         
                           Orange Specific alert      
                                  Red Fight trigger         
 

From my Examiner column: Although officialdom constantly seeks to disarm you with promises of protection, the reality is that you are ultimately responsible for your own safety. Always remain in condition yellow, a relaxed alert state. Note the shortest route to an exit, and don't be caught by surprise. Don't be caught with your back to the door, like Wild Bill Hickock.

When you go out the door, turn on condition yellow.

Emily gets her gun

The word Hero is often used casually in modern American Society. Occasionally, however, someone comes along who truly fulfills the meaning of the word. True heroes usually did not set out to be honored as heroes.
Audie Murphy did not set out to win the Medal of Honor. Abraham, of Ur of the Chaldees, did not set out to be the father of the nation of Israel. Leonidas probably never gave thought to the the fact that history would recognize him as the hero of the Battle of Thermopylae. Joan of Arc, I am sure, never planned to be the heroine* of the 100 years war.
And Emily Miller, on New Year’s Day, 2010, scared and angry, surely never gave thought to the notion that she would be soon hailed as a heroine of the gun rights and self defense community. She was minding her own business, dog-sitting for friends, when she she had a close encounter with thieves. Thankfully, she was not hurt.
This book chronicles her quest to purchase a defensive handgun in our nation’s capital. Handgun possession in the District had been practically prohibited since 1976, the year we celebrated 200 years of independence. Although the ban had been struck down in 2008 with the Heller decision, Washington, D. C. had still kept it practically impossible for the average citizen living there to buy a handgun. Miller, the senior editor of opinion at the Washington Times, began what proved to be a struggle to simply exercise her right to keep a defensive arm in her home.
Interwoven in the saga of Miller’s successful quest is her commentary on subjects of interest to all freedom loving people. She destroys the myths of gun control, the myth of high-capacity magazines and the myth of universal background checks. She includes chapters exposing the exploitation by the Left of the tragic Newtown massacre, the influence of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and liberal media distortion. She also covers the harsh treatment some of our service-members have received in the District.
The book would not be complete without Chapter 15, Emily Got Her Gun . . . and Took it Home on the Metro.
This book is inspiring. It shows what one person, who won’t give up, can accomplish. Miller has paved the way (and laid out a road map) for District residents who desire to have a firearm for self-defense.
Will Emily one day be able to CARRY her gun? I would not count it out, yet.
THIS LINK will take you to my book list. Click through to Amazon, where you can buy the book. I highly recommend it.

Farragut Town Hall workshop

I was unable to attend because of work, but it was reported by a friend that only one person spoke in favor of continuing the ban.

Alderman Bob Markli made a good point as reported in the Knoxville News-Sentinel concerning surveys done by the Parks and Recreation Department, "Surveys are nice but our rights are not subject to a popularity contest."

Alderman Jeff Elliott wants to continue the ban for "safety reasons." Some people just don't get it. They would rather keep you unarmed and helpless. Some of them prefer that . . . and maintain the philosophy, "if I just look straight ahead and whistle a happy tune, nothing will happen to me."

Farragut guns in parks - call to action


Dear friends,

I am forwarding the following email from Bob Markli, a Town of Farragut Alderman. Your help is needed to show the other aldermen and mayor that there are many of us who support the right to meaningful self defense, which should not stop at the boundaries of the parks our taxes pay for.

Please plan to attend the workshop this Thursday. Please forward this to all of like mind. You don't have to be a resident of Farragut to attend.

Liston Matthews
316-6486

Fellow citizens,
 
Thanks to your efforts in writing your elected officials, a workshop is scheduled for a discussion on rescinding the current ban on lawful carry permit holders exercise of their constitutional and lawful right in the Town of Farragut parks that our tax dollars support. This workshop will occur from 6:00PM until 6:55PM just before the regular Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting on this Thursday, September 26. The meeting will be open to the public.
 
I am encouraging each of you to commit yourselves to being in that audience and to encourage as many of your friends and family as possible to be there as well to show support for this common sense correction of a poor decision made in 2009 by the Board. Because of the media propaganda surrounding second amendment issues, many elected officials mistakenly believe pro-liberty issues are politically unpopular. Let's help them see that a tiny, pathetic, insignificant and misguided minority cannot dictate policy against the liberties of free Americans.
 
Yours for liberty,
Bob Markli

Weapons of mass destruction - redux

I recall that as the US was preparing to invade Iraq, U.N. Blue Helmet weapons inspectors were having Sadam Hussein's people play cat and mouse with them. There were numerous reports of large truck convoys making a run for the border. They were not going for tacos!

The Left pooh-poohed the Bush Administration's claim that there were WMD's in Iraq. . . . Now, guess what border those trucks were making a run for. Could it be Syria, perhaps?

Today, the current administration is saber-rattling about WMD's being used in Syria. As sad and tragic as that is (assuming it is true. We have seen fake footage come out of the Middle East before.), we have  already had too much young American blood spilled in the deserts of our modern-day Vietnam's of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mt. Juliet, Tennessee city employees to pack heat?

John Lott informs us that the City of Mt. Juliet may soon allow employees to carry firearms on the job, provided they have handgun carry permits.

While I am not at all opposed to the idea, this ordinance will create a special class of citizen.Shouldn't the citizens who pay their salaries have the same privilege. What about equal protection under the law?

Zimmerman NOT GUILTY

Just heard the Florida State's Attorney say, "Our hearts as always go out to our victim's family."

Duh - sounded like she was labeling Treyvon Martin as the victim.

The victim, lady, was tried and acquitted. His name is George Zimmerman.

Sounds of freedom

Tonight, fireworks are exploding all over Knox County, Tennessee, in widespread acts of civil disobedience.

As John Adams said,

"It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations (fireworks) from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

Its time for Knox County Commission to repeal their Nanny State ban on fireworks!

Peoples' Republik of Kolorado

Today marks the beginning of the grand socialist disarmament scheme in Kolorado. Don't get caught there with a magazine with a capacity greater than (or readily convertible to greater than) fifteen rounds. You could do 11/29 as a guest of the state, or at the very least, have an expensive legal battle.

For more information, check my Examiner Column HERE.

For greater detail, check in with Michael Bane, who is behind the lines HERE.

Watching grass grow

Readers may have noticed my page on Tennessee Lawn Grass, and wondered about getting started with such a project. Well just go ahead and do it once and for all.

We were blessed beyond measure with a new home last fall, and I have been itching to start a Zoysia lawn at the new domicile.

A few weeks ago, I planted seed, after aerating the yard. I also bought a few pieces of sod from Mayo's Garden Center. Here are pix I took today. Click to enlarge:

Note the runner (stolon) in the middle of the picture.                                      


 Check out my latest Gun Rights Examiner HERE.

Many small seedlings mixed with weeds. By year 3, most weeds are choked out.

Note red runner in the middle of the picture.

Another group of seedlings.
We have been blessed with abundant rain recently, saving some watering expense.

Nanny Cam catches savage home invasion

Some people don't want you to have a gun. They would rather you get this poor lady's treatment, because your being armed doesn't fit their agenda.

Be warned, this is a brutally violent video.

New York News | NYC Breaking News

New Jersey, where this happened, is one of the most difficult states to legally own a gun in.

Clean before my Lord

Today as I was bathing my pup,

I got to thinking about the future of believers. Just as he doesn't look forward to a bath, we don't relish the idea of dying; but look forward to the other side. He is so happy when he comes out of the water. We, likewise, will be unbelievably joyful after we pass over. That will be a joyful day, and we will stand clean before our Lord.

Progressive schizoprenia

Progressives tell us a woman should have the right to choose (to kill her baby). They put a nice spin on it, denying the humanity of the unborn. On the critter scale, they would put the unborn child1 somewhere below the level of baby seals, puppy dogs, and tadpoles. I guess they still hold to the dis-proven "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" theory.

But they angrily deny that a woman should have the right to her weapon of choice to ward off attacks from college rapists, or other nefarious ne'er-do-wells. No choice for her to use a 30 round magazine against a home invasion.

NOTE TO GRANDPARENTS: Don't let the left set the vocabulary. Refuse to say, "I am going to have a grandchild." You already have one. She just hasn't been born yet.

Whaddya think?

Thousands of protesters assemble across the street (not).

Had a chance to chat with a couple of the protesters.
