11 ¶But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12 And seeth two aangels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and asawJesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, aMaster.
19 ¶Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples wereaassembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and bstood in the midst, and saith unto them, cPeace be unto you.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)
Nancy Pelosi has done what I didn’t think possible: top herself in the “are you freaking out of your mind?!?” category. In this clip she actually, with real earnestness, argues that unemployment benefits equal job creation. To think that this person is 3rd in line for the Presidency is actually frightening. Seriously.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill that allows Arizona citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a concealed carry permit. I have been meaning to get a permit for a couple our years and just not taken the time to go through the course.
Now I don’t have to.
So I’ll bring my 9mm out of the closet and have it with me on occasion. And, I’ll encourage my wife to carry her .357 on a regular basis. I am one of those people who believes that an armed citizenry is a safe citizenry.
I believe that Governor Brewer signed this bill as a shot across the bow (pun intended) of Buz Mills, one of her primary opponents, because of his long history with the gun community. So, thank you Buz!
We celebrate the most holy of days today, the day that marks when our Savior overcame the bonds of death and rose again.
Politico is reporting that President Obama will propose an across-the-board non-security spending freeze in his State of the Union address on Wednesday night.
Huh. That’s a bit different than candidate Obama.
Count on the United Nations to come up with one of the most outlandish reasons to push the alarmist view of the “dangers” of global warming: ‘Climate change pushes poor women to prostitution.’
Seriously? I mean, come on, these kinds of claims make the global warming and overpopulation crowd look downright silly. This is the “oldest profession” we are talking about, and we are supposed to believe that global warming causes an increase in prostitution?
Just when I thought I’d heard it all.
