…. while remaining stupid.

Behold, the VW Trailer!

TRANSPORT INNOVATION

So… the VW trailer. When in need, he puts the trailer in 4th gear, and turns on its electric system. The throttle is stuck full open. He pulls it to get going put, put put put… Then, the trailer pushes the car along. What if he needs to slow down? No problem, he hits the regenerative brakes on the Toyota, so now the VW is also charging up his batteries!

American ingenuity is still alive!

Venezuelans dieing from Socialism

CUMANÁ, Venezuela — With delivery trucks under constant attack, the nation’s food is now transported under armed guard. Soldiers stand watch over bakeries. The police fire rubber bullets at desperate mobs storming grocery stores, pharmacies and butcher shops. A 4-year-old girl was shot to death as street gangs fought over food.

Kudos to Hillary

Honor where honor is due, of course. Congratulations to Hillary Clinton on becoming the first woman to win the nomination of a major political party:

In a nutshell, I really think feminists should be proud that they have nominated a felon who will teach generations of women to marry for power, stand by their men, play the victim, throw weaker women under the bus, protect other powerful manipulative women, and pretend to be stupid in order to avoid prison.

Quote – Recycling

Recycling costs money, harms the environment, and uses the one resource — time — that is truly non-renewable. But it gives folks a way to show publicly how much they love the Earth. That’s fine, but making landfill-worship mandatory violates the separation of church and state.

Taking God at His Word by Kevin DeYoung – christianaudio.com Free Book April

ChristianAudio.com is offering Kevin DeYoung’s, Taking God at His Word for the April Free Book of the Month.

There isn’t really a “go to” book on Scripture. Sure, there are plenty of theological books on Scripture, and lots of popular-level works on how to read Scripture, and more and more books on the whole story line of Scripture. But there is not one book that people turn to for the basics on the Bible. We need a book that college freshmen will read when they have questions, a book that mentors can use and small groups will employ, a book that a Bible class in high school or college might assign. We need a book on the Good Book that is relevant enough to get a hearing, but timeless enough to be read with profit twenty years from now.

That’s the sort of book popular author, pastor, and blogger Kevin DeYoung has aimed to write. Addressing the issues of our day—questions related to the reliability, authority, and readability of the Bible—DeYoung tackles these head on, but without complex terminology or a long list of footnotes. Taking God at His Word serves as a comprehensive and comprehensible introduction to a classic, orthodox doctrine of Scripture for the average man or woman in the pew, helping Christians across the globe gain confidence that the Bible really is knowable, necessary, and enough.

Crony Capitalism

Crony Capitalism is not capitalism, it is Cronyism. When Progressive Socialist Democrats criticize what they call “capitalism” or “crony capitalism,” they are not criticizing what they think they are criticizing, they are, in fact, attacking the very thing they are trying to promote – larger, more invasive government.

Please stop lying about guns not saving lives

If you are one of the people who continues to lie about guns in civilian hands NOT saving lives, then you are willfully ignorant, a deceiver, or stupid. I do not like attributing any of those to people, but one must be true. (If I have overlooked a possibility, please let me know.)

Socialism kills

“Socialist revolutions, to be sure, have occurred throughout the world, but never where Marx’s theory had predicted—in the most advanced capitalist countries. On the contrary, socialism was forced on poor, so-called Third World countries. And those revolutions unwittingly condemned the masses to systemic poverty and political dictatorship. In practice, socialism absolutely failed to create the nonalienated, self-managed, and fully planned society. It failed to emancipate the masses and instead crushed them with statism, domination, and the terrifying abuse of state power.”
