If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, then error will be. If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendency. If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will. If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of this land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end. ~~ Daniel Webster If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity. ~~ Daniel Webster (Jul 30, 2013 | post #23)

Typical of the liberal reporter to use Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals Tactics to demean Alabama ... see http://www.crossro ad.to/Quotes/commu nism/alinsky.htm 1- Unlawful Entrants to ANY OTHER NATION on this Earth immediately and swiftly find themselves subject to the legal system of that Country for being Illegal Immigrants. Look at the Hikers who accidentally strayed into Iran for a good example of what happens when someone enters a Country ILLEGALLY, whether they claim 'immigrant' status or not. 2- Just because most Unlawful Entrants to the USofA are poor [by OUR standards, not necessarily by the standards of the Country they're from], does not give them some sort of carte blanche excuse for Illegally Immigrating to the USofA. 3- The USofA has lawful and legal means to immigrate into our Country. IF we did not, there could be an argument for illegally entering the USofA for certain reasons... but we do, so there's not. 4- Churches and Religious Agencies who try to blur the distinction between 'poor' and 'immigration' and 'charity for all, regardless' are DUPLICITOUS [and are using Alinsky's Tactics on those who disagree with them]. They preach obedience to God's Law, but promote breaking the 10 Commandments [10 & 7] by the "poor illegal immigrant." They want the legal authorities to protect their interests but refuse to give Caesar his due by reporting illegal immigrants to those authorities. [And I won't go into the Federal Government's duplicitous behavior regarding 'preferred status' given to illegal aliens at the expense of US Citizens.] ALABAMA is stepping forward ... doing what is in the best interests of the State and the Nation ... and is in the forefront of legally protecting both. Kudos to Governor Riley and the Legislature! (Aug 23, 2011 | post #3)
I can think of hundreds of reasons why he should not be reelected, but people who like to rule over others by creating "boards" which disallow dissent and deny paying members the right to vote will vote for Obama. If you haven't read Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, here's a good review ... http://www.crossro ad.to/Quotes/commu nism/alinsky.htm ... Here's a short list of why Obama should NOT be reelected: http://mjhawkeye.b logspot.com/2011/0 4/50-reasons-why-o bama-should-not-be -re.html (Aug 23, 2011 | post #3)
Wonderful idea but you all know that the Liberals will cry "But what about the Children? Are you going to let them starve?" The fact that the Food Stamps and Welfare recipients don't give a flying-flip about their children or they wouldn't use drugs is ignored by Liberals. I have an idea ... if the adult [term used loosely] fails a drug test, the family doesn't get Food Stamps, they get a "Food Card" redeemable ONLY at specific restaurants and, yes, even certain fast food type restaurants. But to be used ... the recipient must verify that he/she is the legal owner of the "Food Card." Photo ID would be good. As far as the Welfare payment ... again, make the use of the "card" dependent on proof that the person who has the card is the lawful owner of it. Welfare Cards and Food Stamps Cards should have PHOTOS of the recipient AND the 'authorized' users on them ... or they're confiscated ... no exceptions. The recipient will have to reapply AND document with a police report [filing a false report is punishable] that the 'card' was "stolen. " AND while we're at it ... no Welfare to Illegal Immigrants ... Birth Certificates must be provided by the applicant ... Lawfully obtained and Certified ... to apply for Food Stamps and Welfare Checks AND Housing allowances ... no more HUD housing to unlawful entrants. We are a Nation of Immigrants ... LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ... not law breaking ones. (Aug 23, 2011 | post #2)
But, but, but, they're just "poor people who are trying to make a better life for themselves" and you're calling them thieves? Were the thieves unable to locate a job because all the jobs are taken by unlawful entrants? If they're US Citizens could their lawyer use that in their defense? If it turns out that they're illegal immigrants will they be deported if caught or will Obamanation pardon them and give them a stimulus check? Seems as if only US Citizens have to obey the law. Isn't that discrimination? /some of the above is sarcasm........ you choose which. (Aug 23, 2011 | post #2)
I've just learned what a Jubilee is ... something about the water gets warm and flounder and crabs come up near shore and can be caught with a gig. And it only happens a few times a year, mostly at the end of summer. Could someone give me a clearer understanding? And how do I find out when a Jubilee happens so I can see it ... even if I don't grab any fish or crabs? Inquiring minds want to know......... (Aug 19, 2011 | post #1)

Could someone explain what the New Hampshire guy who must get reported for abuse regularly because he changes ISPs like Weiner changes underwear is doing on an ALABAMA topix? Nothing much be happening up in Nawth HempShire for him to ridicule. Saul Alinsky would be soooooooo proud ... another community organizer worshiping at the feet of Saul's master. [Check out who Saul dedicated his book "Rules for Radicals" to and you'll learn truth.] (Jun 10, 2011 | post #8)
I don't know who the above is, but I can assume he has never been to the South and doesn't know how serious my question is. Obvious North East Liberal. Why is he spamming us Liberty Loving Southerners? (Jun 10, 2011 | post #3)
The "lesson" is "Know Your Spiritual Adviser" ... He didn't read his Scriptures ... there are only 2 Comings ... Jesus Birth and Jesus Triumphant Return ... there is no 'rapture' and a 3rd 'Coming' ... For indepth reading: http://www.catholi c.com/library/Rapt ure.asp http://www.catholi c.com/thisrock/qui ckquestions/keywor d/rapture When in doubt ... go back to the the Upper Room and follow the Apostles ... straight to Rome ... or if you want to do it the hard way ... back track every denomination to its origin ... where the founder broke away from this or that denomination and this or that denomination broke off from some other denomination or group or some person thought God spoke only to him and everything prior to him was in error and you'll go directly back to the original Christian Church ... and doggone if you won't find yourself in Rome. The Catholic Church is the catholic and apostolic Church. Every Christian trances his or her Christianity to Christ and Christ spoke to Peter as the head of His Church and gave Peter the 'keys' ... the power to forgive sins or to retain them ... and by Apostolic succession, this right, this obligation, this mandate is handed down through the laying on of hands in the Catholic Church. The right/obligation/m andate is broken outside of the Catholic Church. You can believe it or not, but in your heart of hearts, you know what I write is true. And if you are offended by what I write, that in itself is proof that you're afraid to research to find out if what I write is true. http://www.ucathol ic.com/ http://www.newadve nt.org/ "You search the scriptures, because you think you have eternal life through them; even they testify on my behalf. But you do not want to come to me to have life." (John 5:39-40) ‎"S o then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter." (2 Thes. 2:15) "And what you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." (2 Tim. 2:2) (Jun 3, 2011 | post #2)
In the last two months I have stepped in dog poop. One time someone had 'hidden it' under some leaves near the mailboxes in my Condo complex. I innocently walk by the mailboxes, slip and get dog poop on my flipflops AND on my toes ... eeewwww, yuck. Made me want to vomit. I tried to clean it off in the grass, hobbled inside after tossing my good flipflop aside [not the $1 plastic kind], and hopped to the shower where I scrubbed my foot til it was red and the stench was gone. Then I tried to clean the shoe... but the ODOR won't go away, even after three days soaking in Clorox & water. Flip flops are NOT cheap shoes! THEN yesterday, at 10:30 PM, flashlight in hand, I'm walking the dog in the median in front of my Condo and somewhere between stepping on the grass and picking up MY dog's poop, I stepped in some neglectful lawbreaker's dog's feces in my $70 pair of shoes. Talk about Pissed or is that POOPED Off! I couldn't get the odor out of my nostrils! I scrubbed the soles of the shoes for over 30 minutes trying to get every bit of the 'crap' off of them. And this time I had to stop myself from vomiting all over the place and nearly couldn't! I'm 'not from around here' and I was taught to obey the laws of the area I live in, unlike 'some people' from 'around here.' I walk my dog ON LEASH and I PICK UP MY DOG'S POOP and dispose of it. What is the title of the law or ordinance in Daphne regarding picking up one's dog excrement. What recourse do Honest, Law Abiding Citizens have against selfish narcissistic dog-owners who think they're above the law? I rent, so I am not a member of the Condo-owners Assoc. I've complained to the Condo owner and been told that there is 'nothing' anyone can do ... that it's up to the person who owns the dogs and allows them to defecate where ever they want to obey the law or ordinance. Well, I disagree ... because if I don't use my blinker at 2:30 AM on an empty highway, a Daphne Policeman is going to turn on his lights and stop me to remind me to use that blinker. This is the same kind of thing. If the Daphne Police can't catch the defecation in the act, do I call 911 or make a citizens arrest and THEN call 911? I'm SICK of stepping in dog feces and I'm headed for a nervous breakdown if it happens again. It's SICKENING. It's unsanitary. And to top it all off, Dog Feces is Rat Attractant ... got Rats? Clean up your Dog Crap. Some of you are probably laughing at my plight ... I hope you step in a pile of wet Dog Feces to see how you react. To those who take this seriously ... Thank You.
