CNN needs to get their heads out of the sand so they can learn to count crowds better. One of their reporters covering the big Tea Party event in Nevada, numbered the crowd at, “hundreds perhaps dozens.” Gee that’s funny others covering the very same event put the number closer to 20K!
Hmmmm! I wonder who is closer to the truth. Let’s check the photos, SHALL WE! (HT Atlas Shrugs)
Looks like the 20K number is the right one! Notice the second photo of the woodstock type traffic jam of people still trying to reach the event after it already had begun. Here I thought CNN was becoming more conservative. Cue the buzzer! BeeeeeeeeeeeP!
CNN is STILL stuck on stupid!

Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.
And churches aren’t supposed to be meeting places for the holier than most crowd either.
It just seems that way sometimes.
We recognize that there are allot of hurting people out there who if they have to pretend everything’s perfect in their life they’re going to explode.
At Grace Fellowship in the Albany NY area we just started a whole bunch of workshops on a whole slew of issues. Everything from dealing with various addictions, to caring for elderly parents, to Understanding Depression.
The latter was the one that caught my eye.
Most of the time I talk about spiritual issues over at “Lucky Loser” but this needed to be said here.
If your house of worship isn’t a place where there’s a safe place to let your guard down you need to find a place where you can.
Imagine a hospital in the natural where you had to act like you were well most of the time.
That would suck rotten eggs wouldn’t it?

Never mind who let the dogs out!
Who let the pigs in? Who threw their pearls to the swine?
As in,who let the pigs into the church so that people with a malevolent agenda could film children and children ministry leaders in some very intimate deeply spiritual moments!!!
I’m talking about one of the most inspirational films I’ve ever seen. It’s inspiring because it totally torqued me off! There is smoke pouring from my nostrils and fire balls over my head!
“Jesus Camp,” is an evil twisted movie that takes the precious innocence of child like faith and makes it out to be something like Hitler’s Youth Program or Mao’s Cultural Revolution.
It looks like some well meaning Christian leaders were conned into letting this serpent, film their youth camp. They of course only show the most controversial radical moments.
So, I’m inspired and proud of all the all the kids in the film and the youth director who got scammed by this snake in the grass film maker.
I wish I could send my kids to a camp like the one in this movie.
If you have NETFLIX on line you can get the documentary “Jesus Camp” on demand.
Just be prepared to be torqued off if you’re an evangelical Christian!

Remember the famous line Tom Hanks character said in the movie “Philadelphia?”
“What do you call ten lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?”
A GOOD START!”
Perhaps they were referring to the scum that’s willing to dredge up whatever defense it takes to get their client off.
What is his lawyer’s defense so far?
Yes a house was bombed but because somebody blew up the wrong house it wasn’t Raucci. It was some teenagers who were really good at demolitions.
They weren’t really bombs!
They were firecrackers!
(Pretty good firecrackers for the damage they caused)
Is this the lawyer that gave President Bill Clinton his “I didn’t inhale,” defense?
So what do you call ten slimy lawyers drowned at the bottom of the Hudson River?
A giant step forward for New York State and Capital land!!!

Now that David Patterson says he won’t seek a full term, that leaves GOP candidate Rick Lazio as the only one running for the New York Governor’s seat.
Of course everyone knows State Comptroller Andrew Cuomo is going to be running and he’ll get an easy Democratic nomination. And more than likely Cuomo will cruise on to win the general election.
But then again you never know.
After all this has been a strange year for politics.
So like I said,
I HOPE I’M WRONG!

It’s the trial of the century as far as the City of Schenectady is concerned. The jury selection process has begun in the case of Steve Raucci former Bulding Services Director of the Schenectady School District. He’s facing 26 charges of arson and even terrorism.
(Hat Tip Daily Gazette)
Today the list of witnesses was red and it’s a who’s who of people working for the school district, former and current. The most interesting name is Superintendent Eric Ely who according to The Daily Gazette is looking for another position anywhere in the country. That’s not a good sign for him is it?
