The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small SacrificeAugust 3, 2014, 1:00 am 3 comments in the last 7 days. comments
The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small Sacrifice.

On May 19, 1983, Elizabeth Diane Downs and her three small children were shot on a country road near Springfield, Oregon. Her 7-year old daughter Cheryl died, but her 3-year old son Danny and her 8-year old daughter Christie survived. Within three weeks, Diane had lost custody of her remaining wounded children and had become the number one suspect in the eyes of the police department and District Attorney’s office. I came across some very interesting information about the Diane Downs case because Rule attended the trial and also wrote a book about the case called Small Sacrifices.

Waterboarding: Policy of a Cruel and Unusual President (VIDEO)November 6, 2007, 2:05 pm 1 comments in the last 7 days. comments
Waterboarding: Policy of a Cruel and Unusual President (VIDEO).

Regular readers will not be shocked at my personal outrage over George W. Bush's support of torturing suspected enemies with the technique known as "waterboarding." While this makes the president's policies once again the butt of bad jokes and parodies, like the video below from cartoonist Ignatius M. Dedd, creator of "Dead Guy, The Cartoon," it isn't funny at all.

Ayatollah Khamenei: We Condemn Insults to the Sunnis' Sanctities.

Monday, the leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei referred to the plots hatched by the arrogant powers in the region over the past century. He said, "Although the arrogant powers’ plots in the Islamic region have a long record, pressures and conspiracies intensified in the wake of the [1979] Islamic Revolution in Iran so that this experience would not be repeated in other countries."

Bernie Sanders: Drawing Massive Crowds Yet Still Considered a Long Shot?.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an unabashed democratic socialist, is making quite a splash in the media and on the campaign trail, drawing massive crowds wherever he goes. The question is, can an independent, democratic socialist win the Democratic nomination for president? What follows is my view of the Sanders’ campaign to date.

Blacks Ridiculed Again by the Mormon Church.

For several years now, every Tuesday evening I have had the great privilege of hosting “Teaching The Truth”, an LDS focused broadcast to the Christian and Mormon listeners of Worship FM 101.7 in Monrovia, the capital City of Liberia, West Africa. I have come to know several of the station managers and a number of the more frequent callers to this weekly program. Through their comments, questions and photographs, I have been genuinely moved to see the application of their unyielding faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
