The election is finally over. Barack Obama will be out next President.
On one hand, I am glad that an African-American man is President. It shows how far our country has come in terms of racial equality and acceptance.
On the other hand, I am grieved, because America has just elected the most Pro-Abortion President in history. One of his first intiatives as President will be to pass the “Freedom of Choice” Act.
What is the Freedom of Choice Act?
Senator Barbara Boxer, co-sponser of the bill, has said: “The Freedom of Choice Act supercedes any law, regulation or local ordinance that impinges on a woman’s right to choose. That means a poor woman cannot be denied the use of Medicaid if she chooses to have an abortion.” In other words, state governments and the federal government would be mandated to fund abortion with taxpayer money.

So, if you pay taxes, you will be supporting abortion.
Here is Obama talking about the “Freedom of Choice” act.
Obama’s website changed it’s homepage yesterday after the results of the election were in to read, “Change can Happen.” I do hope that change can happen, and I hope and pray that President Obama will change his mind about passing the “Freedom of Choice” act.
Is the new G1, powered by Google’s Android, going to be even close to the iPhone? I hope it is, because I have T-Mobile… Check out this article on it.
From what the article says, the strength of the G1 will be the G1 Market, which acts like Apple’s App Store. The only difference is it will be much more open than the App store.
Punch-Out is coming to Wii!!! This is awesome!!! I hope the controls will be better than Wii Sports’ Boxing.
Here is a trailer for it.
In a very frank and provocative way, Mark Driscoll addresses the struggle of many Christians with pornography.
The e-book, available here, will be released in the upcoming months. I think this is a good read for any guy, even if you are not struggling with pornography.
Here is a sample from the first chapter:
God tells us that his people tend to satisfy their thirst not by drinking from his streams of living water, but instead drinking from man-made toilets (Jer. 2:13). This metaphor is particularly adept in a world where men such as Tom Leykis, Dr. Drew, Howard Stern, and a legion of men’s magazines and porno providers become wealthy by selling glasses of toilet water to thirsty men across our nation, many of whom claim to be sons of God. Meanwhile, the church alone has access to the living water from God’s perfect Word, but largely fails to teach men masculinity in any area, particularly regarding their sexuality.
Sounds like good stuff.
Are you like this baby, who is confused about all this talk of the Financial Crisis?
Read this article to get caught up on what is going on!!!
Here are some of the things they talk about:
1. It all began with cheap money. To prop up ailing economies early in this decade, central banks in the U.S. and Japan kept interest rates unusually low, which encouraged speculation. In the U.S., the Federal Reserve lowered the federal funds rate — the rate that banks charge each other for overnight loans and a barometer for the cost of borrowing money on a short-term basis — from 6.5% in 2000 to 1% by mid 2003. Cheap money quickly ignited a sharp rise in home values in virtually every corner of the country.
15. Don’t lose hope. A financial panic causes people to lose their ability to reason. But just because a panic can end in utter economic disaster doesn’t mean that it will. Just as banker J. Pierpont Morgan could quell the Panic of 1907 by walking onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and buying bank stocks, so too could decisive government action contain the Panic of 2008. You may not know the outcome of this drama for weeks or months to come. Until you do, the best course of action might be … to do nothing.
You will feel smarter after reading it. Trust me.
