“The real problem is not that we are different, nor that we disagree and have conflict. It's that most of us automatically view conflict as something negative rather than as a tool God can use to help us better understand ourselves and one another.

Amazing And Unbelievable--but true...

Hats…uummm…helmets…off to the Armorer for two great links. The first is a NY Post article on the reactions of Islamics to the Democratic victory. The second is a report showing that conservatives are more generous than liberals.
(…like I had to wonder if any of this was true or not…)

Now, I ‘ve read some crazy things liberals have talked about—some they actually did. But, the Global Orgasm Project tops the list! I read about this in a couple of places. But, I like Linda’s breakdown on it best! Cassandra had a pretty good write up, too. And those pictures!
(…oh, the inhumanity of lefty stupidity…I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time…)

I found a wonderful, though quite bitter, breakdown of the relationship of the US, the UN and the rest of the world. Right Wing Guy speaks a lot of truth. Now, all we need to do is find a solution. Personally, I think the US is already tied to so many global agreements it’s too late to back out.
(…kind of parallel to ancient Israel trying to get free from Babylonian control in…the way out was to submit…hopefully, it hasn’t come to that…)
(H/T to BlackSix)

And, the other day I ran across a blog post on New Zealand. It seems NZ students can use internet text speak on exams. Imagine answering an exam in instant-messenger speak!
(…my high school teachers must behaving fits…as if we didn’t have problems enough with communicating in English…)

And how about this statement on the state of our culture: Robbing and Stealing for a Video Game. This took place in Connecticut. The attackers were after money, presumably thinking people would be carrying the $600-700s in cash. There was also a scuffle at a Walmart in California, and a drive-by BB gun shooting in Kentucky. In my neck of the woods (North Texas) things stayed pretty calm. But…come on…I don’t care how good it is…IT’S A GAME!
(…admittedly an expensive one…but still…IT’S A GAME…)
