Bill Bonner on the Establishment's Willful Ignorance

Taken from page 30 of his book "Hormegeddon":

"The trouble with The Economist, The Financial Times, the US Congress and most mainstream economists is not that they don’t know what is going on, but that they don’t want to know. It would be counterproductive. Nobody gets elected by promising to do nothing. Nobody gets a Nobel Prize for letting the chips fall where they may. Nobody attracts readers or speaking fees by telling the world there is nothing that can be done. Instead, they meddle. They plan. They tinker. Usually, the economy is robust enough to thrive despite their efforts. But not always."

H.L. Mencken on True Patriotism

"The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is na├»ve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair." - H. L. Mencken

Yvette Carnell: Were drones flying while Obama eulogized in Charleston?

"Even as Obama gathered with mourners today, there is probably a drone buzzing above the heads of brown people in some Middle Eastern country, as they too, like the nine lost in Charleston, wonder what they did to deserve their fate." ~Yvette Carnell

How Should Christians React to the Supreme Court's Decision on Same-Sex Marriage?

Douglas Wilson explains here.  Here is an excerpt:
But in the meantime, we must use these enclaves, for however long they last, as places to gather, worship God, regroup, educate our children, marshal our resources, and counterattack.
How do we counterattack? By preaching the Word. These people cannot understand words because they will not worship God the Father through His Word. Given the nature of man, and the nature of the gospel given to save the natural man, none of this should come as a surprise to us. So what do we do? We preach the Word, whether or not anyone wants to hear it.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim. 4:2–4).
Taking all in all, this is a glorious time to be alive. Faithfulness to Jesus Christ is becoming more obviously meaningful by the day."
There is much more. If you are wondering why there is a picture of the Queen from Alice in Wonderland, then you have to read why Wilson says the character is relevant to figure out why I posted it.

Audio: The Demise of Guys in a Tough Economy - Games and Pornography

This is episode is very helpful in many ways. Despite the title focusing on Games and Pornography, the show focuses on a lot more than that. This is the "Demise of Guys" website.

Check out the radio show below.

Click here to play it from the Sermon Audio website.

Description from the web:
Pornography is way more accessible today than it was 100 years ago. There were hardly any sports, let alone computer games, in the average boy’s life 100 years ago. Now computer games are everywhere.
The character of guys is failing, but the economy is only getting tougher. So what gives? Kevin Swanson discusses with Joshua Christiansen (from Proverbs66.com) regarding the critical importance of faith and character in the lives of our young men (and young women).
