How’s Your Dash

 

There are times I worry about MY DASH and have to go back and watch this AWESOME video again. My DASH is very important to me and I have to clean it up a bit from time to time. How’s yours?……….”Papa Mike

Watch the movie that over 65 MILLION people have watched. It has life-changing & healing potential! It’s not the date you were born, or the date you died, that really matters. It’s “the dash” between those years and what you do with it that does. When Linda Ellis wrote her poem, The Dash, in one afternoon in 1996, it would change her life forever. In 239 words, she captured the “Simple Truths” of why we were put on this earth. Since then, The Dash has been published hundreds of times in books, newspapers, magazines and company newsletters. It has also been read countless times at company meetings, graduations and funerals.

Raleigh Police Outraged After Restaurant Employees Sing “F**k The Police” At Them

 

The locusts have arrived.

Via Helena IR:

As images of dead Syrian children flashed across his television this month in Montana, David LeBleu prayed it would finally change minds.

“Could this be our chance?” he wondered.

LeBleu, 73, had been campaigning for a year to bring refugees to his tiny mountainside town of Whitefish. But in conservative Flathead County, he was making little headway.

Donald Trump had won the county with 65 percent of the vote in the presidential election and found widespread support there for his “America first” message and pledge to halt refugee resettlement nationwide. In that sense, the region wasn’t much different from a broad swath of the nation.

If the deaths of “beautiful babies” — as Trump had put it — in what the U.S. said was a poison gas attack couldn’t sway people, LeBleu figured nothing could.

“They don’t like newcomers here,” he said. “They want to just keep things the way they are, in the past.”

LeBleu himself is a newcomer, part of a wave of liberal-minded transplants drawn to Whitefish, population 6,357, for its natural beauty and slower pace of life. He moved from Long Island, N.Y., three years ago, following his daughter after retiring from teaching high school social studies and losing his wife to multiple sclerosis and cancer.

He was delighted that people would “talk to you on the street and ask how you were doing.” As a lifelong Christian, he was pleased to see churches everywhere.

But the faith that dominated northwest Montana was far more conservative than LeBleu had ever experienced.

To him, being a Presbyterian meant a life of public service and openness to other cultures. Back in Long Island, he sat on a refugee council at his church and once housed a Vietnamese refugee and her two sons. He joined churchgoers for a trip to refugee camps in the Middle East, and his church hosted a Coptic Christian priest from Egypt and a pastor from Syria.

But in Whitefish, the Presbyterian churches he visited were more interested in the Bible than the wider world and didn’t share his passion for women’s or gay rights.

LeBleu finally found a spiritual home alongside other liberal transplants at the Whitefish United Methodist Church. It was already working internationally to pay the salaries of Christian pastors in Angolan villages.[…]

By the time Trump took office, LeBleu was on the verge of giving up.

His church committee stopped meeting and he started spending more time with his fiancee, a Montana native and a liberal like him. He saw more of his daughter, who runs the kitchen for a mountain guide company, and her two children.

Texas Abortion Activist Wendy Davis: “Notion That Human Life Begins At Conception Is Absurd”!!!

 

And every year, Planned Parenthood aborts more than 300,000 of these unborn babies’ lives, while receiving hundreds of millions of our tax dollars.

Wanting to protect human lives from the moment they begin is not absurd. It is based on scientific fact and a values system that views every human life as valuable…….

Texas abortion activist Wendy Davis was back on the road this week advocating for abortion and the nation’s largest provider of it, Planned Parenthood.

Davis stopped in Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday to speak at a fundraiser/celebration for the abortion chain’s 100th anniversary, the Post and Courier reports.

Davis is a former Texas state Senator who rose to the national spotlight several years ago when she filibustered a Texas pro-life law that banned late-term abortions and required abortion facilities to meet basic health and safety standards. After a failed attempt to run for Texas governor, Davis has been active in the pro-abortion movement.

On Thursday in Charleston, Davis blasted a new bill in the state that would recognize unborn babies as human beings from the moment of conception.

Here’s more from the report:

Most recently, an anti-abortion measure advanced in the South Carolina legislature Wednesday that defines life as beginning at the moment of conception. Davis characterized such legislation as “absurd” and attributed the bill to “politicians who believe that thumping their chest … is something that they’re rewarded for when they run for re-election.”
She also criticized President Donald Trump’s administration for its pro-life policies and urged people to do everything they can to support Planned Parenthood.

“It’s the storming of capitols all over the country, it’s the phone calls, it’s the marches, the protests, the speaking up, the standing up, the fighting back,” Davis said. “All of that is necessary to the continued vibrancy of the work that Planned Parenthood does.”

What Planned Parenthood does is destroy unique, individual human lives while they are in their mother’s wombs.

Numerous scientific textbooks, experts and researchers point to the moment of conception as the beginning of a new human being’s life, complete with his or her own DNA.

For example, the textbook “The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology” states, “Human life begins at fertilization, the process during which a male gamete or sperm (spermatozoo developmentn) unites with a female gamete or oocyte (ovum) to form a single cell called a zygote.”

Who Doesn’t Want To See The First GOP Millennial Female Latina Beat The Pants Off Of de Blasio For NYC Mayor?

 

Historic and unprecedented.

Via BPR:

The latest entry into the New York City mayoral race should finally put to rest that old saw that the GOP is a party comprised of old white men.

New York Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, a Latina, threw her hat into the ring Tuesday, determined not only to be the Big Apple’s first millennial mayor, but to also break the stranglehold the Democratic Party has on big cities in the U.S.[…]

She’s the only woman running in the 2017 election for the post to date and is also believed to be the first female Republican to run for mayor.

So far, Malliotakis, 36, is the fourth Republican candidate to announce an intention to square off against current Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio.

But she shouldn’t be dismissed just because she’s young and Republican. She overtook an incumbent lawmaker by double digits to wrest his state Assembly seat from him in 2010, in a swing district that includes Staten Island.

Four years later she turned her district from purple to deep, deep red by holding on to her seat with 73 percent of the vote. Two years later, Democrats knew better to challenge her and she ran unopposed.

Tucker Grills NYC Dem on the One Immigration Question No Liberal Will Answer

 

VIDEO HERE

Tucker Carlson debated a New York City Democrat on what can be done to heal the deep and worsening political divide in America.

And he also tried to zero in on what he calls the one question on immigration that liberals will never answer.

He talked to Mark Green, former NYC public advocate, who recently formed a group of 17 policy experts called the “Shadow Cabinet” to oppose and debunk “Trump’s lies.”

Carlson argued that the issue of illegal immigration and “sanctuary” policies shows the disconnect.

He pointed out that leaders of so-called “sanctuary cities” are going a step further by defying federal law, essentially saying “we’re our own country, we’re not subject to the laws passed in Washington.”

“That is something without recent precedent,” said Carlson.

Green accused Carlson of exaggerating for “effect” on the issue, calling President Trump a “demagogue” who was elected thanks to FBI Director James Comey’s actions and Russian interference.

“Come on, you’re smarter than that. That’s insane,” Carlson answered.

He argued that Green was putting the problems of divisiveness “on display” by refusing to actually answer his questions.

Carlson then pressed Green for an answer on what can be done to address immigrants failing to “assimilate” into the country, thus deepening the divide.

“Newcomers to America should be taught what, in order to make them American? The language, the history, the culture? What are the core beliefs we need to inculcate in immigrants to keep this country united rather than divided?” he asked, later referring to it as “the one question on immigration that no liberal will answer.”

Green countered by accusing Carlson of suggesting that the U.S. is being “overrun” by immigrants, arguing that refugees commit crimes at a lesser rate than Americans.
