Get rid of those YouTube EMBED tags — Repost

This article originally appeared on my web site in October of 2008, before I had it set up as a blog. I keep seeing links to the original page pop up now and then, so I’m going to republish it here and redirect the original link structure to this posting. Keep in mind that this …

Chris Rodda Debunks David Barton’s Jefferson Lies

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqMIOc7afZ0&list=PL5CFC7050BA485613&feature=plpp_play_all

David Barton, the über-right-wing’s darling ‘historian’ is a liar. What’s worse is that he’s a liar for Jesus. He and his ilk will stop at nothing to rewrite the history of our nation to reflect their own ideas about the way things should have been. They long for a place and time that never existed. …

Did I mention that I live in a great community?

I didn’t really know much about the Urbana-Champaign, Illinois area before I moved here in early 1995. As I’ve come to know more of the area and the people, I’ve come to appreciate what a great place I live in. I’m not a world traveler, and I haven’t lived in very many different localities, but …

Not Perfect

Welcome to my new blog/web site/whatever. This is my corner of the web where I hope to share all sorts of things. My interests are varied. You will probably find a little bit of everything here, eventually. It isn’t quite finished, yet. The basic structure is here, but it still needs to be fleshed out. …

The Sky Is Falling! Seeds! Buy Seeds!

This advertisement is being promoted by WorldNut Daily. Surprise, surprise. …in an economic meltdown, non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver and gold. I love the “graph” that purports to show the value of gold, silver, and “Nonhybrid Seeds.” It’s odd that there aren’t any numbers on that graph, isn’t it? I suppose …

What If They Gave A War And Only One Side Came?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKk9rv2hUfA[/youtube]

Yes, it seems that the annual “War on Christmas” has already begun. I saw evidence of it earlier, but didn’t pay much attention until one of the mortar shells landed in my inbox. This particular explosive device came from the direction of one of my favorite comedic sources; Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family …

Nothing’s Gonna Change My World

As many of the people who might read this blog already know, I was recently diagnosed as having Hodgkin’s Disease, or Hodgkin Lymphoma as they prefer to call it now. That was on the 19th of May, just one month ago. I have cancer. I don’t know any way to explain how that makes me …

How About Some Interesting Music: Die Antwoord

I’ve been under the weather recently, which has left me tired and unmotivated. There are several things that I want to write posts about, but the text isn’t quite ‘flowing’ yet. I’ll get to those posts soon though. In the meantime, I’ll provide another musical interlude. I’ve never been terribly fond of music which is …

Judith

Maynard James Keenan has explained that this song is about his mother, Judith Marie Keenan, who was restricted to a wheelchair for the rest of her life after suffering a stroke. I appreciate the sentiments expressed in the lyrics. I can only hope that as time goes by, more Christians will examine some of the …

“I love the country but I can’t stand the scene.”

I’m often reminded of how varied people’s exposure to music can be. Twenty years is an eternity in the music industry. Those same years make a gap in musical generations that most people don’t bother to cross. I don’t follow what I refer to as ‘pop culture”, so I don’t really know who most of …
