The key part of Obamacare, the Minimal Coverage Mandate, came to two separate courts of appeals today. Each court had to consider how far the executive branch of government may go to rewrite a law. One court, or at least one three-judge panel, showed courage. They ruled in line with the Constitution. The other panel behaved like cowards. They handed down a specious decision in the government’s favor. In so doing they made a split between two judicial circuits. Once again the Supreme Court of the United States must contend with an issue they earlier tried to punt.

Forty-five years ago this month, with even the days of the week aligning as they did, three men flew a mission called Apollo 11. All three were veteran astronauts, one of the few missions that few with all-veteran crews. NASA needed veterans for this job. Because for the first time, men would land on another world.

Two days ago, rebel forces in eastern Ukraine shot down an unarmed civilian airliner. Our de facto President barely acknowledged this. He was on his way to yet another fundraiser. Now we know the Russian Federation supplied the weapon the rebels used and even took it back into Russia. Barack Obama has barely answered this, and his answer lacks luster. All this goes to show his worst failing in the office he holds: he lacks leadership.

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

– Billy Sunday

I remember when I first became part of the family of God in Jesus Christ about 20 years ago. On several occasions while attending church services, there would be people who would share their testimonies where a good half hour would be spent on magnifying how sinful, evil and bad they were with a smirk on their faces, while one or two minutes would be spent on emphasizing on how good God was by saving them through Jesus Christ. I also noticed that in many cases these storytellers were the first ones to play the hypocrite outside of the congregation’s eye. One day they would be in front of a church giving their testimonies, and the next they were out doing the same things they proclaimed they were delivered from. The furthest thing from their professed walk in Christ was Christ Himself. The fruit of Jesus was M.I.A. when it came to their walk.

Irreducible complexity. That phrase gets a lot of attention in the creation-evolution debate, or the accident-design debate. As well it should. Irreducible complexity shows that life did not come about by accident, but by design. Recently the advocates for “intelligent design” claimed vindication. Now it’s time to review the concept.

As the details about Common Core Standards (CC) are revealed, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (Gates) have emerged as the prime donor enabling the facilitation of this ill-advised and potentially destructive program. To be clear, it can be legitimately argued that CC will further deteriorate an already strained educational system. That is no small concern when one considers that presently this prosperous nation has fallen from an untouchable #1 worldwide to #23 in the space of one generation. Although the issues with CC can be presented ad infinitum, this article will focus on the curious financial support CC it is receiving from Bill Gates and his wife.

Exactly 45 years ago at the time of posting (Wednesday July 16, 1969, 13:32 UTC), Apollo 11 blasted off for the moon. At least one gaming developer rates this as a wonder of the world. One can rightly wonder whether America, or anyone in the world, can ever do this kind of project again. Today begins a day-by-day look back at that historic mission.
