According to the FBI, they can hack an iPhone and get your data. Other law enforcement agencies are asking the FBI to hack the iPhones for their cases as well. It is quite possible that the FBI has put this out as a huge ruse, to stir doubt about the security of iPhones and to make criminals and everyone else worry about the security of their data. Are you worried yet?
Apple would not play nice with the FBI and unlock the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone for the FBI. Since Apple would not create a back door to the operating system so the FBI could hack any phone, the FBI has told the world the iPhone is hackable and not secure. It could be revenge clear and simple. Who thinks that under Obama our FBI is capable of seeking revenge on those who don’t bend to their will? Our government is so much better than that, don’t you think.
WHAT IF IT IS NOT REVENGE!!!
Apple will now have to revamp the iPhone, just in case the FBI is telling the truth. In the meantime I would suggest not keeping anything on your phone you don’t want the government to have, or anyone else to have either. If the FBI can hack the iPhone, then it won’t be long before every hacker out there can do the same thing.
Perhaps we should return to using face to face meeting with no recording devices.

One of the arguments put forward to justify the abortion mills that are still very much a part of modern day Americana is that these facilities provide safe, easy access to abortion. This was not true for Lakisha Wilson. Her second trimester abortion procedure resulted in her death. From the history of the Gosnell Clinic in Philadelphia to this case the botched abortion, the maiming and death of young women continues to this day.
So what can you do to stop this carnage? Yes, amazing enough you can help! I am sponsoring a team for the walk for zero for Shelby Sav-A-Life. We are striving for zero abortions in Shelby county by 2020. If you will pledge for the team and come out an walk at Valleydale Church on April 9th you can have a huge impact on reducing the death and damage done by abortions in Alabama. You don’t have to walk, but there are raffle prizes if you do. The pledge will be huge.
Please contact me at 205-585-9244 or message me to make a pledge. It is the most important thing you can do to help young women choose life and your contribution will preserve the life of both mothers and babies.

Two stories about life in Saudi Arabia, one about life there and one specifically about Christians in Saudi Arabia tell a story about our government’s attitude toward Christians. As Obamacare tears into Christians’ right to maintain their beliefs or as the NFL talks about banning Atlanta from hosting the Super Bowl because Atlanta wants to let vendors choose not to support activities where they have religious objections.
It becomes clear that being a believer in Christ is no longer a easy choice. No matter were in world you are, believing in Christ has a potential cost, up to and including an ultimate cost. From a earthly standpoint, why would anyone subject themselves to the bigotry against those that actively profess a belief in Christ? The truth of the resurrection and belief in Christ provides an eternal reward. Believers that die live forever.
If Christ did not return from the dead and ascend to the Father, all of us Christians are idiots and our beliefs false. If he did, no price is too great to pay in this world for the hope of Christ.

That is what the media wants from you, to live in terror, to fear that the oceans will rise and wipe out Hawaii or that there is a rash of crime and you are the target. Compounded with legitimate fears it is amazing that any of us function at all. I was recently impressed by a friend of mine facing potentially terminal cancer, but he was not fearful. To be more accurate he was not worried about death. He was more worried about the discomfort of chemo than he was about the prospect of dying.
I have noticed that believers who have accepted Christ as their savior generally face potentially fatal events with far less trepidation than those that are in any other religion. There a grace and peace that believers in Christ have that provides an assurance of what will occur after death. That assurance is not one of a mental understanding but one of a heart understanding that is often described as from the holy spirit. Beyond the indisputable events of Jesus’s death and resurrection that to me is proof of that reality. It is the impact of that reality on this world.
According to Wikipedia fascism is a form of authoritarian nationalism. I am not sure what you call what has gone on with the political parties, now obvious with Trump, but clearly not new. Our constitution and our democracy no longer exists. Our ability to vote in our own best interest is gone. The big donors are willing to destroy the people’s choice, (whether or not you like Cruz or Trump) to put their own candidate in the place of either. That is not democracy. This is the new fascism. It’s the authoritarian rape of pillage of America at the expense of the vast majority of Americans.
Unless we want to continue to get poorer and less capable of living in this country I would suggest that everyone email the Republican National Committee and tell them that the voters have the say, not them, not the donors. Unless you want to live in dictatorship under Hilary or a republican puppet you need to email these people today.
Tell them you won’t stand for their destruction of democracy and that already their policies have reduced the standard of living in this country. That reduction is not acceptable. Flood their email, stop their destruction of everything that makes this country great. Please share this as much as possible as our future is at stake!!!!!!!!!

If the Empire State building were to be demolished it would create a pile of debris 20 stories high and half a block wide, give or take. That pile of debris would in include concrete, dust, wood, asbestos, nails, metal supports, smashed office furnishings, plastics, electrical wiring, circuit boards, piping, air conditioning chemicals and so on.
Ok, now lets leave that debris hanging around for a billon years. I would bet that a billion years from now, it would not have assembled itself into anything resembling a building. Even more unlikely, it would not have grown legs, and created more little buildings walking around. That is the theory of evolution.

You, and I mean the person reading this blog, is paying for the massive gravy train our government provides to businesses such as GE, Monsanto, Koch Bros. Google, Microsoft and many others. Your money is paying for a massive benefit to these companies through low immigrant wages, direct purchases and help to foreign countries which then buy goods and services from these huge conglomerates. The net result is the rape of my pockets and yours.
Keeping up the myth of climate change is another way the government justifies moving our money out of our pockets to its benefactors. The push now to steal the election from Trump or Cruz is just another round of efforts by the powerful to keep the gravy train going. Mid-Eastern countries and Europe don’t want Trump because they are worried that their ability to pillage U.S. wealth will come to an end.
The underlying powers in the U.S. are huge. As individuals unless we all voice that we want the democratic process, not the bought and paid for special interest process to work, we will lose our country to the pillagers. These people want profits at the expense of middle class opportunity and at the expense of any national interest. The next time someone in your neighborhood is robbed by an illegal immigrant, you can point your finger at Congress and at those interests that are letting even criminal illegal immigrants remain free. Perhaps we should all stop buying GE products or using the Google search engine.
Somehow those companies need to learn its in their best interest to defend American interests, not just their own pockets.

China recently made it clear that they needed to approve of any person that was reincarnated as the next Dalai Lama. Now, we all know that except in the case of Jesus Christ, reincarnation has never been proven to occur. Even he was not reincarnated, he was resurrected. The Romans 2000 years ago also tried to deny the return of Christ. The point here, whether its the Chinese government or the Romans two millennia ago, is that there is no limit on the power governments want to assume. The authority they want, the control they crave does not even have to exist for them to assume it belongs to them
So we get to the United States. Here the Obama administration has debated suing oil companies for being climate change deniers. They want to control what people think through the force of law. Even though there are lots of scientists on both sides of this issue, its an issue that hampers their efforts at controlling who uses oil and how much oil they use. It is the height of arrogance and the antithesis of a representative republic (democracy).
Recently, I fixed our sump pump. This small device controls whether or not our basement floods. It moves water and sludge from the crawl space to the outside. It controls whether our foundation remains solid or whether it erodes destroying our house. Watching our government it is clear that the mechanism for protecting the foundation of our democracy has failed. The sump pump of Congress and the courts whose job it is to keep the sludge out of our system have failed. Like the sump pump at home, they need an overhaul.

The FBI has revised its own rules about how it will use NSA data. If you have ever had a conversation by phone or email with someone outside our country they can now review your emails, phone calls, and web traffic. The FBI pretty much admits they were doing this anyhow, but now they claim legal authority to do so. Basically, if you bought a kids toy in China they can look at all your correspondence.
Why was there spying on conservatives and the illegal use of the IRS? The fact that both parties condone this intrusion is appalling. That more than any other reason is a reason to elect a conservative that upholds the letter of the constitution. I think Trump would like to use this power. We are 1970’s Soviet Union or 2016’s China. What you say is monitored. What you write is monitored and bad things happen to people that make waves against the established money and special interest fed order.
Look around you. WELCOME TO THE GULAG comrade!!!

Thus far in the past year IT workers at Disney, and Southern California Edison have had to train their foreign worker replacements. Not only have they lost their IT jobs, but they also have had to endure the humiliation of training their replacements. Now this same thing is happening at Abbott Labs. 180 more American workers are having their jobs stolen by foreign workers willing to work for less than market value.
So, who is to blame. All of the Senators and Congressmen that take money from lobbyists and special interests are to blame. These are not American citizens and have no right to jobs where there are qualified Americans. I would urge Congress to shut down the H1B program until all the workers who want to work in America have jobs. That also means shutting down the EB5 program that is nothing less than selling American jobs in exchange for foreign capital.
Between illegal immigration and the H1B program it is not rocket science to figure out why wages are depressed. These companies and our government are not interested in American success, they are only interested in their own pockets. The environment that lets them rape Americans needs to change. Our own companies and government are selling us off piecemeal. Its imperialism in reverse. Obama’s favorite thing, the destroying of America.
(Disney is family friendly, except for those they fired. Those families can’t afford Disney tickets because Disney destroyed them in the pursuit of profit. Perhaps people should not go there.)
