Just a Thought


Kudos to Rowan Atkinson


Shouldn’t comedy kick up at people in authority, and not down at those who have no power? “I think you’ve got to be very, very careful about saying what you’re allowed to make jokes about,” he says. “You’ve always got to kick up? Really? What if there’s someone extremely smug, arrogant, aggressive, self-satisfied, who happens to be below in society? They’re not all in houses of parliament or in monarchies. There are lots of extremely smug and self-satisfied people in what would be deemed lower down in society, who also deserve to be pulled up. In a proper free society, you should be allowed to make jokes about absolutely anything.”

“Inside the vanished world of SoCal’s cruising scene when Camaros and Corvettes roared down Van Nuys Boulevard, gas was 33 cents, and barefoot blondes and brunettes sat on hoods during the summer of ’72”

Very interesting article with photographs that’ll bring you back half a century…

Kid Rock’s Church a Church of Christ?

I am a minister, with a small congregation (the Strasburg Church of Christ). We are part of the Churches of Christ, an affiliation of churches with similar beliefs, versus a denomination. God blessed my family and me by first introducing us to them at the Antrim Church of Christ in Antrim, New Hampshire.

Either way, being in a Church of Christ meant something caught my eye in a Tucker Carlson Originals called “Life of a Rock Star: Kid Rock.” This screenshot is from inside the church on Kid Rock’s Nashville property:

Now, “Church of Christ” could be said of any true Christian church, so it may not indicate they are a sister church. Kind ‘a neat if they are though. 🙂

BTW, this is the sign out front:

Now, don’t get any ideas that…during a service…you’ll hear “rock n roll” at a Church of Christ. A traditional Church of Christ does not use instruments during worship service. However, I’ll tell you right now, a cappella singing at a Church of Christ is pretty awesome. 🙂

P.S. Church of Christ or not, the Dixie ridge Church of Rock N Roll has it right. Jesus loves you. So do I.

“Is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered EV?”

It should concern you that all those toxic components come from mining. For instance, to manufacture each EV auto battery, you must process 25,000 pounds of brine for the lithium, 30,000 pounds of ore for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds of ore for the nickel, and 25,000 pounds of ore for copper. All told, you dig up 500,000 pounds of the earth’s crust for just one battery.

“COVID and Race”

But these large racial gaps in vaccination have not continued — and as a result, neither have the gaps in COVID death rates.

Instead, COVID’s racial gaps have narrowed and, more recently, even flipped. Over the past year, the COVID death rate for white Americans has been 14% higher than the rate for Black Americans and 72% higher than the Latino rate, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It is a remarkable turnabout, a story of both public health success and failure.

Their True Agenda

Although, my comment probably was more applicable to her response:


“‘Dishonest NONSENSE’: EPIC thread uses actual data to DRAG gun-grabbers like Everytown for ‘inflating’ school shooting numbers to scare people”

This is worth a read. It does not mean we don’t have a gun violence issue. Instead, you should read it, because truth matters.
