Do you believe?

(NOTE: This post may not be aligned with some people’s point of view)

Do you believe in God? Do you believe he had a son called Jesus?

Many people claim that the Bible is a work of fiction, a history book of sorts or a mixture of both. After all there have been different version and translations over the years. Depending on the Pope some sections were removed and others added.

Just think about it. Science says Earth is in the “Goldilocks” zone. The just right distance from the sun to create and sustain life. Also, science says that the moon is important the life as we know it. Without the moon our tides would be different and with a different gravitational pull our orbit wold be a lot different. The question is who put the earth and moon in just the right spot so life could exist.

Scientists say the earth, universe, planets everything was created by the ?big bang”. When asked what was there before the big bang the scientists reply nothing. So, everything was created out of nothing in a fraction of a second.

Moving on to Jesus. I am told that over the centuries the face of Jesus has changed due to different artist interpretations and at the Pope’s whim. Now science has actually came up with the face of Jesus from the Shroud of Turin. I watched the full program on the History Channel but here is a small cut from the program.

Hey Google, Hey Siri, Alexa… They are all listening! They hear everything! AND they are just about everywhere!

Many Samsung “SmartTVs” come equipped with voice recognition, which allows you to bark commands at your TV. Since the television is always listening for your voice, Samsung has warned its SmartTV customers that every word is being captured and sent over the Internet.

“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition,” Samsung posted in its SmartTV privacy policy.

Bruce Schneier: Growing number of everyday devices are listening http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/11/opinion/schneier-samsung-tv-listening/index.html

Also, the apps you have on your “smart phone” also want to access your contact list, photo albums. Did you ever really read your end user agreement (EUA). Probably not. You just scrolled down and clicked the little box that you agree.

The government admits to listening to cell phone, internet, radio,etc conversation. They claim that they don’t listen to anyone in particular but their software listens for keywords.

Did we give up privacy for convience?

George Orwell’s 1984 is here and Big Brother is watching.

Minorities

We need to show more sympathy for these people.
*
They travel miles in the heat.

*
They risk their lives crossing a border.

*
They don’t get paid enough wages.

*
They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.

*
They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
*
They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day.
*
I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans
~
I’m talking about our troops!

Doesn’t it seem strange that so many are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops? Wouldn’t it be great if we took the $360,000,000,000 (that’s billion) we spend on illegals every year, and spent it on our troops!!!

The Battered Badge

If you have 50 minutes to spare, please watch this video. It will give you some insight as to what we, in law enforcement, go through on our day to day jobs.

I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones. I was sent to the hospital twice, shot at twice (they missed both times) and sued in federal court once during my 31 years of service.

About 5 years into the job I lost a partner. He was ambushed outside his house at 1am. He lived in a changing neighborhood and didn’t want to move. He was killed because the hood rats didn’t want a sheriff living in the hood.

Totally awesome

On Jan. 14, 2005, ESA’s Huygens probe made its descent to the surface of Saturn’s hazy moon, Titan. Carried to Saturn by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, Huygens made the most distant landing ever on another world, and the only landing on a body in the outer solar system. This video uses actual images taken by the probe during its two-and-a-half hour fall under its parachutes.

Huygens was a signature achievement of the international Cassini-Huygens mission, which will conclude on Sept. 15, 2017, when Cassini plunges into Saturn’s atmosphere.

Owen J. Baggett – August 29, 1920 – July 27, 2006

May this World War 2 hero rest in peace.

Owen John Baggett was born in 1920 in Graham, Texas. By 1941 he graduated from college and went on to work on Wall Street, but by the following year, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps (now USAF) when the United States entered the war.

A studious man, he graduated from pilot training in just five months and was sent to Burma, flying a B-24 Liberator. What happened the following year is one of those amazing stories that I love.

On March 31st, 1943, Baggett and his squadron were sent on a mission to destroy a bridge of strategic importance. On their way, the B-24s got intercepted by Japanese Zeros which hit the squadron hard. Baggetts’ plane was riddled with bullets to such an extent that the crew was forced to bail out.

While parachuting, a Japanese pilot decided that downing the plane wasn’t enough. He circled around and started shooting at the bailed out pilots, killing two of the crew. Seeing this, Baggett did the only thing he could. He played dead.

Not convinced Baggett was dead, the Zero pulled up to him at near stall speed, the pilot opening his canopy to check on his horrendous work. Not wasting any time and thinking on his feet (no pun intended), Baggett pulled out his pistol and shot 4 times with at least one hitting the pilot in the head.

45 cal. M1911 pistol

This is considered the best shot by a .45 Caliber M1911 pistol of ALL TIME.

The last thing he saw was the Zero spiraling toward earth.

When he landed, he and the other bailed out crew members were captured and sent to a POW camp where they remained till the end of the war. They were liberated by OSS agents (World War II version of the modern CIA) and Baggett was recognized as the only person during the war to shoot down a Zero with a pistol.

America’s “Snowflakes” are melting, and this time, global warming isn’t to blame.

The media may not choose to expose this atrocity, but the Media Research Center, through our Save the Snowflakes initiative, is doing much more – we’re taking action! We won’t rest until we save each and every special snowflake from the horrors of exposure to … things they simply do not agree with.
