Despicable: Barack Obama Orders Pensions Cut Off To WWII Veterans
Once again, Barack Obama proves he is not fit to serve as commander-in-chief to our armed forces. In a continuing despicable act, Obama is refusing to honor WWII veterans who fought for our nation in it’s darkest hours.
I. I could only shake my head when I learned that Veri-Chip has received a patent for its Swine Flu implantable chip! Can you believe this nonsense? In order to combat the relatively mild Swine Flu, a person will take an implantable chip?

NEWS BRIEF: “Does Last Year’s Seasonal Flu Shot Double Chances Of Swine Flu?“, by Jane Akre, InjuryBoard.com, September 25, 2009
Governments seem to be very anxious to milk this manufactured crisis for everything they can — as Rahm Emanuel has repeatedly said, “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
Prepare to be shocked by this news story out of Great Britain.
NEWS BRIEF: “Swine flu prompts changes to British Mental Health Act“, Management In Practice, 23 September 2009
“The government plans to rush through measures allowing people with suspected mental health issues to be quickly detained because of fears over staff shortages in any forthcoming swine flu outbreak … The temporary changes to the Mental Health Act, as laid out in an unusually short consultation lasting just one month, would mean it would only take one doctor, rather than two, to have a person sectioned and put on medication without their consent.”
This development is major, for the following reasons:
1) “Temporary” government changes have a way of becoming permanent.
2) This government measure — which has been implemented without any vote by Parliament — can force a person to take “medication without their consent.” This is dictatorship.
3) Once the government becomes involved in declaring certain persons “suspected mental health issues”, history warns us that the government can, and has, used this power to declare people who are opposed to government policies as suffering from insanity or some other mental malady, a declaration which grants the government the ability to silence their opposition.
The Communists of the old Soviet Union filled their mental institutions with dissidents, the most common of which were Born Again Christians. You see, the Communist government taught that anyone who did not support the precepts and the practices of Communism were “insane”. We might be seeing the precursor to this type of mental health declaration using the Swine Flu scare as the cover story.
III. As lawmakers debate issues as wide-ranging as Health Care to Defense, some lawmakers are begging for the time to actually read the legislation on which they are expected to vote! Incredibly, only 2% of lawmakers actually read any bill before they cast their vote!! Notice that this article was carried only overseas, as my search on Google confirmed.

Did you happen to catch Answers in Genesis’ “State of the Union” address last week? It presented some very interesting facts about why and when people leave the church and the Christian faith.
You can watch it online here. Answers in Genesis is a creationist ministry, and that worldview is certainly the centerpoint of their address; but no matter what beliefs you hold about evolution and creation, you’ll find some of the research results fascinating. Here’s a few bullet points, taken from Kent Shaffer’s excellent Church Relevance blog:
Among 20- to 29-year-old evangelicals:
- 95% attended church regularly during elementary school
- 95% attended church regularly during middle school
>> 40% first had doubts about the Bible in middle school
- 55% attended church regularly during high school
>> 43.7% first had doubts about the Bible in high school
- 11% attended church regularly during college
>> 10% first had doubts about the Bible in college
Oddly, the study discovered that those who attended Sunday school (61%) are actually more likely than non-attendees (39%):
- to not believe that all the accounts and stories in the Bible are true
- to doubt the Bible because it was written by men
- to defend keeping abortion legal
- to accept the legalization of gay marriage
- to believe in evolution
- to believe that good people don’t need to go to church
The take-home point seems to be that America’s Sunday schools and church youth education programs are failing to address kids’ serious spiritual issues until it’s too late and they’ve already left the church. While most youth ministry seems to focus on high school and college students, the above data suggests that it’s in middle school that doubts and spiritual crises kick in. And clearly Sunday school isn’t helping resolve those crises.
Kent’s post has some good thoughts and questions about these numbers. What do you think? Are these numbers a surprise to you?

“Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can the theistic Sunday-school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?” –Charles Francis Potter, 1930, signer of the First Humanist Manifesto
