The Chopped-Off Hands of Star Trek. I mean, Wars. Star Wars.

The Chopped-Off Hands of Star Trek. I mean, Wars. Star Wars.: "Welcome to what remains the only site on the Internet devoted to all the hands that get chopped off in the Star Wars saga, now in a snazzy new format guaranteed to astound at least three people.

Enjoy it. Or don't. Either way is fine by me, really."

Larry Kudlow on the Economy and Oil on NRO Financial

"Today’s economy may be the greatest story never told. It’s an American boom, spurred by lower tax rates, huge profits, big productivity, plentiful jobs, and an ongoing free-market capitalist resiliency. It’s also a global boom, marked by a spread of free-market capitalism like we’ve never seen before."

Larry Kudlow on the Economy and Oil on NRO Financial:
"I would be more interested in what the Democrats had to say about high gas prices if these were not the same people who refused to let us drill for oil in Alaska, imposed massive restrictions on building new refineries, and who shut down the development of nuclear power in this country decades ago.

For those of you who think that the big bad oil companies
are gouging us on gas prices here are some facts for you.

I drive approximatly 1500 miles a week using around
70 gallons of gasoline.
Out of the money I spend on this gas the
big bad oil companies make $7 off of me.
The state and Federal Governments make $50 off of me!

It seems to me that the big bad oil companies and all of
us should be having probes into the governments gouging
us instead of this silly investigation by the gaugers of the oil companies.

over the course of a year I send the Government $2,548 in gas taxes,
and big oil gets a whoping $364

Every year for the last several years I have played Jesus in
the last supper reenactment service on Maundy Thursday.
One line has always bothered me….

“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
How could Jesus think this? Was he doubting his own divinity?
This thought gave me an uneasy feeling until I read several

books about the life of Jews in that time period.
Quoting the psalms was a normal practice at the time

and they all knew the psalms so well that one only had to
say the first line of the psalm for someone to understand
what you were trying to say.
Therefore, when Jesus said
“My God, my God, why hast
thou forsaken me?”
he was refereeing to Psalm 22.
And when you read it you see that by the end of the psalm we know that through his suffering all people of all generations will know God’s love for us.

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.
I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations.
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

"Believe nothing,
no matter where you read it,
or who said it,
no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."

It was right then in the fight against Communism,
and it's right now in the fight against Islamo-fascism.

"The ultimate determinant in the struggle
now going on for the world will not be
bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas -
a trial of spiritual resolve:
the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the
ideals to which we are dedicated. "
Ronald Reagan

A story and a question.

“If a man takes no thought about what is distant,
he will find sorrow near at hand.”

— Confucius
"I trust free people and free enterprise. I don't like limits,
I don't like restrictions on people. I think they ought to
be only limited by their own hard work, ingenuity,
imagination and their character.

I many times will reference back to Mr. Jefferson's

1801 inaugural address where he defined the sum
of good government as a wise and frugal government,
which shall restrain men from injuring one another,
but otherwise leave them free to regulate their own
pursuits of industry and improvement and that the
government should not take from the mouths of labor,
the bread they have earned. And I think that is still
the sum of good government today."

Sen. George Allen (Our next President)
