Stand up for free speech! Stand up for Liberty!
Mr. Nawaz spoke for about six and a half minutes which means that he spoke about 1100 words, and I don't think I have ever seen that much power packed into such a limited number of words. The apparent purpose of his speech was to "Defend the Right to Blaspheme." Seems a bit strange, but from my perspective, it was all about free speech. AND SHOCKINGLY it was about (although the actual words were not used), how political correctness actually contributes to persecution of minority groups.

Critics? Or Traitors?
"Judas got thirty pieces of silver. What did you get?" one New Jersey resident tweeted. Others, sparked by a White House who accused the 47 senators of "wanting to make common cause with the hardliners in Iran," were equally vitriolic. The New York Daily News called it an "unprecedented missive."... The hypocrisy is breath-taking.

Martha Stevens-David Book Review: "The Orange Trees of Baghdad" by Leilah Nadir
As a "native" born American, I find that we "Americans" with only having experienced the evils that war brings to one's birth country, in our "Civil War" and the "American & Indian War", we really have no perception of what "war" really means. Will the people of Leilah's country ever be "free", one can certainly hope and pray that they will, but only God knows.

Today's Children of the Street / Les Gamin (Street Urchins)
Many of these gamin, become sick and die, and yet their parents could not be bothered one whit. That is the worst shame of our society today, one that the ordinary people cannot handle. If you are going to bring children into the world, treat them as part of your very being, or do not have children at all. Your love nurtures them and they will blossom with it, and reach their zenith when you as the parent take a direct part in their lives. Remember that they are not chattel, but of your flesh and blood, and their need for your love and affection is paramount to their future growth.

Milt Gross Book Review: "Fair Blows the Wind" by Louis L'Mour
Although I don't usually read stories of the Old World, this one held my attention from the very beginning. It ended differently from what I expected. I thought Chanery would end in the New World. Instead he is back where his roots are, Ireland... L'Amour literally "walked the land my characters walk," states a couple of pages about the author at the end of the book. "Of French-Irish descent, Mr. L'Amour could trace his own family in North America back to the early 1600s and follow their steady progression westward, "always on the frontier," the explanatory pages continue.

Martha Stevens-David Review: "Akio & The Dream World" by Carl Snook
I found that the tale read well right from the very intriguing beginning about the young man getting on the strange bus, until the very lovely ending. The topic about dreams and not being afraid to question the unknown, brought back memories of when I was a small child and having to listen to my older brothers tell scary tales to each other as we all waited for sleep at night.

M. Wallace Johnson Book Review: "Putting Tradition on Trial" By Patrick Cavanagh
It was in Chapter 11 that the author's actual position was clearly stated, indicating which day of the week it was upon which Jesus was crucified, how many days and nights he was in the tomb, and when he was resurrected. This is something that I feel was needed at the beginning of the book. For those who might think a discourse on the chronological order of events surrounding the death and resurrection of Christ a bit pointless, it is worth noting that were the Christian Churches to adopt this author's conclusions, you would no longer be celebrating 'Good Friday' or 'Easter Sunday.'

Exploring Map 14* -- and a couple of others
We've paddled our canoe on Lake Megunticook in Camden, where we almost got turned around -- "turned around" in Maine, not "lost" -- and where I steered our electric-motor-driven 14-footer canoe against a rock that deflected us with no harm done. From now on, however, we'll be taking the ocean-going boat cruises, since last fall we gave our canoe, electric motor, and battery to my daughter and her husband in western Maine.

Manipulation of the news only in Canada you say!
Instead of accepting the apology from Mr. Keven Crull, he should be fined heavily, if not given his walking papers. That of course would be the correct thing to do when one considers all the circumstances involved. That would also set an example to those who dare to think that somehow their status as C.E.O. puts them above the law. Indeed there is lots of room in Fast Food outlets for people like Keven Crull, who have outlived their welcome in administrative positions.

An Exercise in Argumentative Poetry - No. 1 The Making of You and Me
Poetic argumentation eliminates squabbling about irrelevant details and focuses on the essentials. It occurred to us that such message conveyance should hold great appeal to the electronically savvy generations who find no time for lengthy elaborations of issues of secondary concern. Hence we turned to a poetic format to relate, in six brief vignettes, the essential features of religiosity.

Busting the Budget
Let's say you were a financial advisor, and a family came to you with the following situation. They make the median family income in the U.S. -- $52,000. But last year they spent $61,000. That's right, $9,000 more than they're making, and it all went on the family credit card. That's bad enough, but then you find out they already have $311,000 in debt. Would you say they have a problem? The "family" in this scenario is the federal government.

Victory or Last Warning to Likud
Netanyahu must not forget why people voted for him this time. It could be the last time Jews of Israel believe in Likud!... International anti-Semites will never stop hating Jews! Only a strong, independent and self-assertive Jewish state will be able shut them down. It was seen after the "Six Day War" and the Yom Kippur war, when even traditional European anti-Semites had began respecting Jews. But it did not last long as Israel did not consolidate its victories, only squandered them under the pressure of its trans-Atlantic 'friend'!

Meditation now a mainstream method of boosting mental health
One interesting thing that was found in the various studies is that the method of meditation seems to make little difference, that what is important is the act of sitting quietly and allowing the mind to become calm. The oldest form of meditation is simple breath meditation, the act of following the flowing out and coming in of the breath, eventually making the breath long, slow, and deep. However, the study also showed that people who simply sit quietly on a daily basis, perhaps watch the sunrise, perhaps listen to soothing or uplifting music, or the recitation of affirmations, all had similar results.

The Canadian way, may not be the democratic way at all
What was Washington, DC before it was built? Nothing but a piece of swampland that was geographically part of the State of Maryland. Unable to find use for it, the State of Maryland offered it to the Federal Government of the United States as a place to build their Capital. But the task was full of drawbacks. Major Pierre L'Enfant the French Army engineer who was called to survey and plan the Capital, immediately said that thy would have to haul in huge amounts of earth to fill in the swamp and that it would require some time to settle before any construction could begin. And so U.S. President George Washington and Major Pierre L'Enfant French Army Engineer began the survey and plotted how the Capital was to be designed and built.

Laure McCourt Lopez Book Review: "No Longer on Pedestals" by Carol Kuhnert
I was so personally moved by this book; as upsetting and disturbing were the revelations, I gained enormous insight as to not only the reactions of the Catholic Church but was shocked by the behaviors exhibited by some parishioners against the victims. Throughout the pages of the book, the author unveils the years of pain and torment her family and others endured upon learning that the family member in their midst had sexually abused an ever-growing number of young congregants of the various parishes that Fr. Christian served in.

Obama's Dangerous Game in the Middle East
Obama was humiliated by Netanyahu's victory, as tens of millions in the U.S. and Israel view the results of Tuesday's contest as a referendum on Obama's failed Middle East policies. The Saudi Daily Al-Jazirah published an article by Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj who was in favor of Netanyahu's speech before Congress. Dr. Al-Faraj called Obama "one of the worst American presidents", claiming that he is "the godfather of prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.'s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad of Netanyahu's firm stance ...".

Martha Stevens-David Book Review: "Pathways to Fight or Flight" by Rose Mae Carrier
"Pathways to Fight or Flight" by novelist "Rose Mae Carrier" is not a book that will appeal to every reader because its topic is very difficult to read about... Left to the mercy of her narcissistic, self-absorbed mother, the little girl is left to fend for herself in every way, shape and form. While this book in and of itself is a very difficult read, that being said, I think that the story still has merit and should be read.

Milt Gross Book Review: "Golden State" by Sichan Siv
To be fair, the first page lists five other of Sic's published books, and a New York Post review called it "Required reading." Just not required for me. I only read a quarter of it. It was so confusing that I realized at that point I knew nothing of what had happened. The part that I read seemed to occur all over the globe, and maybe later in the book there's a connection among them. But I found the writing so awful and going nowhere, that I couldn't bring myself to finish the trip.

This story, as it unfolds, filled me with so many emotions, I felt; beauty, humbleness, great love, dedication, affection, spirituality, sadness, defeat, kindness, and so many more, many more. And I wasn't prepared for the ending which made me sit and wipe a good many tears from my old reader eyes. I truthfully can't recall having read another book in all my long love of reading that touched me the way this story has.

CANADA'S SUPREME COURT sides with Kebek Catholic Schools on Religious Freedom
This case should never have reached the Supreme Court of Canada because it was in breach of a document that was already part of the Canadian Constitution. The Kebek government is well known for tilting at Windmills, but that has only one effect, it is costing the taxpayer money for no reason at all, and at the same time wasting the precious time of our law makers.

Why we must return to basic democracy, and only citizens should vote in elections
It is ergo time that whomever becomes the next prime minister of Canada, will return to its people all those rights that we inherited from the Magna Carta and the real Canadian Constitution of Canada, the British North America Act of July 1, 1867, not one that was created and amended by men of the very same caliber as Pierre Trudeau, who thought that he could rule by decree as a potentate, rather than the consent of the people of Canada.

"Beware the Ides of March"
Hillary Clinton proudly defines herself as a "Modern American Progressive." This is akin to shouting from the rooftops, "I'm a liar and I want everyone to know it!" I don't feel that writing phrases such as "less than forthright" or "disingenuous at best" as substitutes for the word lying demonstrate tolerance or civility. Use of those phrases can only denote intentional ignorance on my part. Let's dismiss the happy talk and embrace the reality of our present situation. You must listen to your own gut, because I can scarcely think of a politician or pundit that has the average working Americans best interest at heart. Happy talk just won't cut it.

MARTYRDOM --Anything More Than a Pain in the Neck?
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. The promise of seventy-two virgins has become so engrained in the minds of many deceived Palestinian mothers that when their sons die as martyrs, they celebrate their dishonorable deaths as though they were weddings! Imagine throwing a party in honor of a son who not only has committed suicide, but has taken innocent lives as well? In Christianity, such reprehensible acts by a family member would heap immense shame upon the family.

What looks like a quiet tale from the shores of a country lake is actually the story of a woman tricked by a city reporter to tell of a friendship with a priest.

The author, who lives somewhere in New England, has seen more than sixty novels published.

Twenty-five years ago, most people hadn't used a computer, email was new, and Amazon was a river in South America.

Government involvement rarely helps. In many instances, in fact, it exacerbates the situation. I'm not saying the FCC is necessarily being disingenuous. But consider the government's track record.

America's "Big Bang"
Progressivism's self-declared mission is one of distancing America from the nature of its founding. Our founders did something that is as simple as it is brilliant. For the first time in history; they eliminated the middleman. An individual's rights were no longer granted or stolen by others claiming to be representatives of god or actual gods. Individuals would now enjoy a direct relationship with the guarantor of their rights through divine and organic provenance. "This is how unique America really is." However, our uniqueness, inalienable Rights and Constitution have not gone unchallenged. The Progressive movement and progressive intrusion into our Constitutional journey has been profound.

Have A Zest for Noble Deeds?
The apostle Paul was clearly an observer of the games, an avid sports enthusiast who frequently used sports metaphors, such as boxing, running, self-control, and physical training, to illustrate the disciplined Christian life. I imagine he was familiar with first century sayings that were comparable to Clayton's quip about the need for offense. Visualize an animated Paul, striding back in forth in a crowded synagogue or amphitheater, proclaiming that fighters who only block punches will never wear the victor's crown!

Eventually, she and a friend discovered the mill manager was stealing wool, and Annie told the wealthy owner of the mill.

R.P. BenDedek Book Review: "A Humble Hero" by Jianxin Huang
"A Humble Hero" is not the sort of book to appeal to the 'feel good' reader since it does not 'edify' and nor is it in any way 'entertaining,' even in a dramatic sense. It is however, for those with a thirst for real knowledge as opposed to popular fictional 'non-fiction,' an excellent insight into the changes that occurred in China during the Twentieth Century. I have lived in China for 12 years and actually live not far from the places mentioned in this tale, and I am well aware that what western people "learn from most books and other media" about China today, is quite different from reality on the ground. While this book does not have the literary merit of the two books mentioned earlier, I have to say that I was more moved by this story, and do express to the author my thanks for such an enlightening biographical tale.

The controversy of 'From Time Immemorial'
Peters showed the cocksure British archivist a number of quotes that she had catalogued from Syrian, Egyptian, and British sources which supported her argument. He was totally taken aback. Then she enlisted his help in pouring over the personal memos and secret documents written by British Mandate officials. These papers proved that not only were British officials were well aware of the scope of illegal Arab immigration to Palestine, but they also acted as accomplices. Urgent written orders from licensing authorities showed that the British permitted the entry of Syrians, Lebanese, and Palestinians to prestate Israel without a passport or entry visa.

My chance encounter in a bank opens the door into my life of yesteryear
When I heard that Sun News Network was closing down, I felt that I knew the reasons for that happening. In radio as in TV, a host has to be able to sell himself to the listeners.

That, I can tell you from my own experience on radio, was the real problem with the network.

Every year since 1995, The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal have measured the state of economic freedom in the world.

But while Hong Kong in many ways continues to act as a fine example for other countries who aspire to be economically free, its foothold on the number-one spot is slipping.

The recent action taken by French President François Hollande, that from now on a French President must be fluent in English, has once and for all ended the rivalry of centuries past between France and Great Britain. But this was an overdue issue as English had over time become the Lingua Franca of the world and now more so because both Great Britain and France are members of the European Union and as trading partners could no longer be rivals.
