LMC's Weekend Smorgasbord--Part 1

1) I found this neat site called The Joshua Project via Cajun Tiger. It has info on all the Unreached People groups in the world. You can put an emblem on your blog that will show a new unreached people group each day. I thought this was an awesome idea and I put it in my sidebar. You'll need to scroll down quite a ways to see it. My kids and I often pray for other countries and people groups around the world so I thought it would be a neat reminder to have on my blog. Check it out!!

2) The Genocide going on in Darfur has concerned me for quite awhile. So when I found this blogroll I was eager to join. Peter Makori recently wrote a commentary for the KC Star entitled, Darfur requires tough, immediate action.

3) Recent polling shows that Traitor Reid and the Democrats may be overplaying their hand:
"A Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll show 69% of American voters trust military commanders more than members of Congress (18%) to decide when United States troops should leave Iraq. This includes 52% of Democrats, 69% of Independents and 88% of Republicans (3/27-28, 2007)."

And while Nevada continues to be embarrassed by their senator, I am always proud of my Senator, Kit Bond. He has come through again and written an excellent commentary for the KC Star entitled, Democrats focused on winning votes, not war. He takes on Traitor Harry Reid and points out that Democrats are suffering from selective denial:
"Democratic leaders in Congress seem to be suffering selective denial when it comes to a coherent policy on Iraq. So eager are they to capitalize politically on public frustration with the war in the 2008 election that they are ignoring the long-term implications of a withdrawal deadline.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, recently told The Associated Press, “We’re going to pick up Senate seats as a result of this war.” Sen. Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said Republicans who did not go along with the pullout will “look extinction … in the eye.”

The political focus sidesteps discussion of a responsible plan to avoid defeat in Iraq and a consequent slaughter in the Middle East if our troops pull out on the Democratic timetable. Most glaring is the absence in Reid’s comments of any recognition that failure in Iraq is a bad thing."

I am going to be doing some calling to D.C. next week praising my Senator and letting everyone else know what I think of all the appeasers in the Senate.

4) Rudy hit a home run this week with a speech he made in New Hampshire. So far Rush has been very unimpressed with the Republican candidates for President but this speech really Wowed him. It encouraged me and reminded me why so far, I trust him the most when it comes to fighting the War on Terror. Here is an excerpt of his speech:
“This war ends when they stop coming here to kill us!” Giuliani said in his speech. “Never, ever again will this country ever be on defense waiting for [terrorists] to attack us if I have anything to say about it. And make no mistake, the Democrats want to put us back on defense!”

Giuliani said terrorists “hate us and not because of anything bad we have done; it has nothing to do with Israel and Palestine. They hate us for the freedoms we have and the freedoms we want to share with the world.”

Giuliani continued: “The freedoms we have are in conflict with the perverted, maniacal interpretation of their religion.” He said Americans would fight for “freedom for women, the freedom of elections, freedom of religion and the freedom of our economy.”

Stay Tuned for tomorrow's smorgasbord where you will hear about personal meetings with Newt Gingrich, Billy Baldwin and my take on parental alienation :-)!!
