Before I begin, “Piercing the Darkness” is also the title of a Christian novel by Frank Peretti. It is an excellent read that, along with his previous novel, “This Present Darkness” is written from a spiritual as well as a human perspective. Other than the title, today’s post has little in common with Mr. Peretti’s work other than being written from a Christian perspective.
Today’s topic might be summed up with yet another story, a riddle actually, whose author is unknown to me. While the basic premise is similar, I rather strayed somewhat. You be the judge.
It seems there was a man on his deathbed who had accumulated a great deal of wealth. He had been an honest and honorable man throughout his life. Now he was faced not only with his own passing, but the task of choosing a successor from among his three grown children. While he felt they were all worthy in their own way, he didn’t want to play favorites, nor did he wish to induce jealousy among them. After praying about
Stuck In The Middle With You · Stealers Wheel
Why did this song suddenly start running through my head?
As you might guess the refrain was what kept coming to mind
Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right Here I am stuck in the middle with you
Now, it’s not entirely accurate. For the most part both sides of the political spectrum could be deemed to the left of me. It’s not that I’m “so far right” but more that they are so far left. Seriously.
First up, emails from the Virginia GOP. Take a peek at the snapshot I took.
Note the subject line of each email – “We didn’t receive your response”
Some contend we are a Christian nation still. Others insist ours has not been such for decades. As for myself, I’m not sure how one defines a “Christian nation”. Is it one where a majority of citizens are Christian? Or do we just need to mostly abide by Christian morals? Either test we fail. What say you? Are we a Christian nation? On what do you base your answer?
What is a “heathen nation”? For the sake of this article, I’ll define it as a nation where a majority of citizens deny the One True God – the God and Father of the Lord Christ Jesus. As for the Sodom and Gomorrah label, well, I don’t believe one must be a heathen to embrace those things we all think of when we hear the term “Sodom and Gomorrah”.
To my dismay I recently saw a video of a drag queen strutting his stuff in front of an enthus
FnBook didn’t like the meme below. They say it “lacks context” or some bs. No, I didn’t check their supplied links. Why? Because these days anyone can say anything and find supporting “evidence” online. The farther left the contention the closer to the top of search results grrrgle will post it. More and more I find myself looking to another search engine or digging waaaay deep to find a dissenting opinion. Is what James Woods posted accurate? Heck, I don’t know but ask yourself this: if I posted a meme about the dogs connected with Fauchi, would I get the same result? Maybe I’ll find out for sure. I can tell you one thing, I saw the video of those dogs who were tortured in the name of “science”. They are heart wrenching.
As a bonus, I’m posting a second meme. Maybe this one got trough FnBooks nanni
Lately I’ve been hunkered down while I take care of some things closer to home. I contacted my Congressman to follow up on my J6 Political Prisoner questions.
On the J6 issue: My next step is to contact Governor Younkin, et. al. to urge them to step up on behalf of the Virginia citizens who are being held by the federal government and whose civil rights are being violated.
The first problem I’m facing is finding out exactly who these citizens are. While American Gulag displays a ton of information, only the state where they are arrested is shown. I have yet to find where to determine what state these citizens are residents of.
Thus, I’ve only been able to identify three Virginia citizens currently being held. They are:
Jonathan Gennaro Mellis
Geoffrey William Sills
Only Mr. Mellis is currently listed as being held in the DC gulag.
Never before seen here! As a rule I don’t analyze books and I rarely review them. The Nation Will Follow by Colonel (Retired) John Mills is an exception because I believe the book is exceptional. A warning first: what caught my eye and lead me to buy this book in the first place was an appearance by Colonel Mills on Newsmax. There he emphasized the concept of reclaiming our nation county by county. For anyone who has read more than a few posts, you know I strongly advocate this concept.
About the link: it leads directly to the website for the book itself. There you should find a popup where the book can be had for 99¢ from Amazon. I have no idea how long this will be
Now that’s a shocker, isn’t it? Anyone who has read more than ten of my posts is likely waiting for some sort of twist to take it all away. It’s not coming. I mean it. Your vote means nothing. No, I haven’t turned into a raving lunatic champing at the bit to wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. I’m still the same raving lunatic I’ve always been. It’s just that I had this thought that opened up a different perspective. Bear with me.
Once again I found myself at that pool of thoughts that reflects my past back at me. Okay, I got to thinking about my life – all right? Mostly I got to thinking about my journeys into the world of politics. On occasion I’ve attended caucuses, political events, and yes, even board meetings. I was part of the “Young Republicans” once, though I wasn’t all that young at the time. I even nominated a friend for office and ran for an office myself (Town Clerk). At the time I believed I could help shape things from the inside. Said illusions were sh
As with so many things, I made a much bigger deal of this than it turned out to be. The atmosphere of the event was very laid back and so was my conversation with my Congressman. This the first contact I had with him and I was rather impressed. He came across as a regular guy who happens to be a Congressman. We shared a likeminded view of the plight of the J6 political prisoners and, I think, of the issues we all face in general.
To be fair, though there was not a huge crowd there, in fact no crowd at all really, there were others who wanted to talk to him. As such, our conversation was not what I would call a “one on one”. I could tell he felt obligated to acknowledge and/or talk to others rather than ignore everyone else. The fact is, I’d do the same in his position. For all I know, the interruptions were a welcome relief from me, though I our exchange was anything but antagonistic and certainly not unpleasant from my perspective. At some point, I decided to give it up as this
I will NOT Accept PayPal!
Nor am I asking for donations at this time.
(This is excerpted from my donation page. There I struck through the old appeal but I left it up for documentation purposes. Unlike so many websites, I’ve got no problem with what I said before but times change and sometimes I have to change with them – usually kicking and screaming.)
Today is October 9, 2022. Due to PayPal’s revised “user agreement” I hereby officially and unequivocally renounce any and all association with Paypal as well as any organization with direct ties to them.
Let it be publicly known I do NOT accept Paypal’s “Terms of Service”. I do NOT accept their “Acceptable Use Policy“. As of this writing, the link appears to lead to a blank pdf file.

Well for some reason, the only person I ever heard from was from the lady who first answered my inquiry from the “RNC Election Integrity Team”. I’m not even sure why that was sent but I replied to her saying I hadn’t heard from anyone else. She got right back to me with the text of the email the county guy supposedly sent me. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. I somewhat think he did because of the content of the email. So I replied to both.
The election official position(s) are filled. He didn’t mention poll-watching, even though, if the early voting poll, i.e. the Registrar’s office was to be watched, it would need to manned daily from now until the election. One more reason for same day voting.
He also expressed a need for volunteers for our current Congressman. For that I said, I didn’t think this seat was in danger of being lost. I also added I wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about this representative. I have my reasons and, of course, I believe they are quite valid. Okay, one o
