Posted by Pistol Pete

Not much time for commentary today. Going to visit Roger after lunch. Things are pretty much the same as always. As granny always said: ‘If you’re not the lead dog,the view never changes much.’

Over six people served!

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mocking healthcare.gov at the Country Music Awards.

Added by PP:

I was going to do a separate post on last nights CMA show. Since Chrissy beat me to it,I hope she doesn’t mind my kicking it up a notch. If  I had the skills,I could do something spiffy. But I can’t. Normally,I am loathe to watch awards shows as I find them to be a bunch of over-inflated egos immersed in self-aggrandizement.But this was too much fun.

The story:

Song Mocking Obamacare + Special Duck Dynasty Appearance = Best Country Music Awards Open Ever?

Is prayer just a conversation with yourself?

Not at all.

A conversation with yourself is the ultimate in self-centered-ness. It’s a monologue where you’re the only one on stage. The spot light is on you, You, YOU.

A conversation with God is the ultimate in radical openness to the Supreme Being. It’s a dialogue with the One who is truly at the Center of the Universe, yet who loves you more than you can possibly imagine.

In prayer, God speaks as He wills. Sometimes, you’ll go to Him sad or feeling weak and He will console you and give you strength. But other times, you’ll go to Him hoping for a hug or a pat on the back, only to have Him hand you an assignment.

That’s part of why prayer … real prayer … is so challenging. It only happens when you open yourself totally to the will of God.

Prayer A passion for the presence of God

The unprecedentedly unspectacular presidency of Barack Hussein Obama

GALLUP Prez Obama vs Bush

Click on graphic to embiggen.

These are public approval polls. The media has such a lot to do with public perception that I wish there was some way to factor in the MSM’s slobbering over Obama vs. their torches-and-pitchforks coverage of Bush.

For example, all that time at the end of Bush’s tenure, when his numbers were in the toilet, the press coverage of the War in Iraq was viciously negative. All we saw in the press was Bush Lied, People Died, Blood for Oil, and Gitmo Gitmo Gitmo (where no one had been waterboarded in more than 5 years and … oh wait, Nancy Pelosi had signed off on that after seeing a demonstration of waterboarding).

Yet WE WERE WINNING THE WAR IN IRAQ. Violence was way down. Deaths of soldiers and civilians were way down. People were having free elections.

When was the last time the MSM’s corrupt0listers even mentioned the fact that soldiers and civilians are still dying in Obama’s War in Afghanistan or that Gitmo is still open? Not to mention drones, kill lists, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS, ObamaCare, rampant violations of our civil liberties and THE DEBT?
