Well, like some bad scene from “Weekend at Bernie’s” the Cuban Communist Party has propped up Castro to bring the first substantal endorsement of the much bandied about Clinton-Obama ticket. And why not? I can’t think of a better communist ticket than these two hard-core leftists with socialist agendas.
I imagine that Vladimir Putin will be bringing his endorsement out shortly in the form of a “Hillary/Obama in ’08” tattoo on his chest.
Now ask most legal drinking age Americans today who Samuel Adams was, they will probably tell you he was the first successful American brewmaster. I may be wrong, but try your own social experiment and see what you discover. I’d be interested in hearing the results.
Samuel Adams was actually an excellent politician, an unsuccessful brewer, and a poor businessman. He was the older cousin of the more famous 1st US Vice-President and the 2nd US President John Adams. We have cousin Sam to thank for the Continental Congress, where he distinguished himself as one of America’s greatest orators and a strong voice for independence. He was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and eventually served as Governor of Massachusetts.
I want to share two outstanding websites with you that are going to become permanent links to “Salt and Light.” The first you’re going to recognize and the second you will rejoice over.
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has an excellent blog titled, you guessed it, Tom Delay.com. If you love Congressman DeLay’s wit as House Majority Leader, you going to really enjoy him as a blogger. I had the honor of meeting him and then listening to his speech at this year’s NFRA Ronald Reagan Awards Banquet in St. Louis (see what you missed!). I am also in the middle of reading his fine book (which he personally signed!) and it is a page turner. Just hit the image below to get your copy.
I appreciate Greg Allen having me on his show again this morning. As I’ve said before, Greg is the best interviewer in talk radio today and he always makes the guest comfortable. Please check him out on The Right Balance. You can listen to the interview by clicking the YouTube connection below. See ya back here real soon!
Have you ever wondered why the Democrats have a donkey as their mascot? Well, it’s not officially their mascot, but since the days of Andy Jackson, they’ve shown an affinity for the beast of burden. It seems that Old Hickory’s stubbornness caused some to think of him as a jack*** and he actually liked the representation. The whole history of this befitting symbol can be found at The Democratic Party website. (The only thing of substance on their website)
We used to have a saying that if someone had done or said something stupid that they had their donkey ears on. Now I know Senator Barack Obama is sensitive about his ears, but he’s definitely wearing a pair since yesterday. In case you missed it, here’s a clip of his latest braying:
Wow! What a couple of weeks since my last post. I’ll try real hard to capture all that has happened but I’m sure I’ll miss something.
First and absolutely foremost is a great report about our youth camp. Last night at Midway Baptist Church in Gulf Breeze, FL (my home church), we had 10 teenagers baptized as a demonstration of their new lives in Christ. I’m not sure of the total number of teens at camp making professions of Christ, but if it were just these ten that would be phenomenal. God worked powerfully and camp was a huge success. I’m already looking forward to next year and I’ve already told our youth pastor I’m going to work real hard to clear my calendar so I don’t have to leave on Thursday night. That was hard, but it was still very rewarding as 3 of the 10 teens were boys from my cabin. I want to take a moment to thank Andrew Bosak, my cabin assistant, who was such a great example of what a godly young man looks like. He did an outstanding job, even having just recovered from shoulder surgery for a broken collar bone.
