Heroes In Aurora

July 27, 2012 by  

Amazing acts of courage. Like you, I was heartsick at the stories of the massacre at that movie theater in Aurora, Colo., last week. But I was also impressed by the heroic acts that occurred there. Four of the victims were men who gave their lives to protect the women who were with them. The courage, bravery and self-sacrifice of Alex Teves, Matthew Robert McQuinn, Jonathan Blunk and John Larimer should be an inspiration for us all.

The Boy Scouts refuse to compromise. For several years now, the Boy Scouts of America has been the target of the militant homosexual movement because it has refused to allow homosexuals to serve as scoutmasters. Despite the intense pressure and publicity, an 11-member special committee formed by top Scout leaders in 2010 recently voted unanimously to reaffirm the ban as “absolutely the best policy for the Boy Scouts.” You can expect the intolerant left to increase its pressure against the Boy Scouts as a result.

Aren’t you glad you paid for it? Thanks to a reader for sharing the following story: On a recent episode of “Bridezillas,” a friend of the bride said her wedding gift would be paying for the $600 wedding cake. Knowing her friend was broke, the bride-to-be asked the baker how her friend was going to pay for the cake. The baker said the friend wanted to pay with “food stamps.”

Paying government to hold your money. How low can interest rates go? Recently, the German central bank sold $5 billion worth of two-year notes that pay a negative 0.06% interest rate. That means the bondholders not only won’t receive any interest payments for the next 24 months, but when their principle is returned two years down the road, they’ll actually receive less money than they lent the government. Of course, once taxes and inflation are taken into consideration, savers in the United States also end up losing money on such “safe” investments.

    Hooray for the Boy Scouts special committee for having courage, moral fortitude and sticking their thumbs in the homo’s eyes. Be aware though, Holder and the DOJ will probably come after you, no matter what SCOTUS says.
    Bridzillas??? Food stamps for a wedding cake??? Bread, circuses, a government that gives our tax dollars to the undeserving and a president that says welfare mooches don’t have to work. Ahhh, what a country.

      I agree with Gary it’s to bad a lot of Americans have trusted the the people that work for us. We haven’t been paying attention and they have screwed us around, and steeling our money, We need to wake up before we loose the freedom we have. We have traitors trying to take away our rights by giving away the U.S. to U.N. like Hillery and the guy that thinks he’s King. We have fools the think that taking our guns needs to be done. If trained people had carry permits a lot of lives could be saved. If only there was one of these trained responsible people that could have saved lives in that movie in Co. The bad guys don’t care about laws. They like the idea of taking away our gun it makes us easy targets.
