A Big Difference

Christians cherish the fruit of the Spirit, which “is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”  However, progressives futilely desire the fruit while shunning the Spirit.

And there you have the biggest difference between conservatives and the current evil infesting the United States.

The Kakistocracy

I’ve been saying, and writing, for some years now that our republic has devolved into a kakistocracy – that is, government by the very worst, least capable among us. As evidence I offer the President, a drooling, senile incompetent. I would also offer the aforementioned Vice President, who rode into politics atop Willie Brown’s penis and has demonstrated no talent or ability beyond that. And how about this administration’s Press Secretary, a blatant diversity hire who is probably the worse person to ever hold that position?
 
This is an administration that, in the name of “diversity,” put a luggage thief in charge of nuclear waste disposal; kept a soft-shelled invertebrate as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs; I could go on all day.
 
I know I’ve said it before and I know I’ll say it again; 2024 can’t come soon enough. But these issues only affect one-third of the Imperial government; if you think that Congress hasn’t been captured by the kakistocracy as well, I can only refer you to the infamous “Squad” as proof.

Who Do They Think They’re Kidding?

On Thursday, FBI Director Chris Wray and Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas warned Americans that terrorist threats are rising in the US since Hamas attacked Israel, October 7th. Mr. Wray explained: “Here in the U.S., we cannot and do not discount the possibility that Hamas or other foreign terrorist organizations could exploit the conflict to call on their supporters to conduct attacks on our own soil.” We must be especially alert to the “lone wolf” lurking  amongst us, he added.

Neither of these officials noted that the rising terror threat here had any relation to the thousands of aliens streaming daily across the US border unvetted, or that the agencies under Homeland Security were helping to distribute them into every corner of America by plane and bus, giving them free cell phones, loaded debit cards, and other rewards for breaking the law.

Garden ideas

Now I have an idea of what to do with the area behind the machine shed.
 
Do not waste time dreaming about creating this food forest someday. Get to work and plant your foundation trees right away. You can add the chickens and other plants later. Trees take many years to become established and provide the maximum benefit. Worry about the chicken coop and the fence and everything else later. Get those trees planted as soon as you possibly can. This is an important investment in the future.

Good Morning

Do you know what day it is?

Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman; September 26, 1774 – March 18, 1845) was an American pioneer nurseryman, who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and present-day Ontario, as well as the northern counties of present-day West Virginia. He became an American legend while still alive, due to his kind, generous ways, his leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples. He was also a missionary for The New Church (Swedenborgian) and the inspiration for many museums and historical sites such as the Johnny Appleseed Museum in Urbana, Ohio.
