Coming Soon – February 6, 2012 Many of us unconsciously do things that sabotage our ability to create wealth. We spend more than we make, never saving. We fail to give when our heart prompts us – short-circuiting the Law of Reciprocity in which benefits would be returned to us. Another example: We don’t show up at our best at work on a consistent basis. Being our best includes a great attitude, proper dress, good grooming, skin care, and having high energy because we are well rested.[continue reading...]

A love for the soul of the Republican party necessitates an evangelical vote for Mitt Romney. The Republican party was born appealing to northern evangelical voters and those voters helped elect Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln led them in a great crusade to save the Union and free the slaves. Those old-line voters still exist in states like Iowa and Ohio where evangelicals still are a big force in the politics of the GOP. These are the voters who can sing “Battle Hymn of the Republic” with no apologies. New England, part of the Republican heartland, grew more secular and less reliable
Last Friday, a significant group of social conservative leaders, gathered at the ranch of influential Southern Baptist layman, and retired Texas Civil Appeals Court Judge, Paul Pressler. While many of those leaders assembled were Evangelicals, there were several prominent Catholic leaders in attendance as well. These leaders came to Texas to explore the elusive goal of uniting as many social conservatives as possible around one presidential candidate as early as possible. Most came (including myself) to the meeting thinking that it was probably not possible to achieve any significant consensus, almost certainly not before South Carolinians voted in their presidential
I once believed in miracles because my parents told me they were true, but even then I recognized that all miracles were not created equal. The Hanukkah miracle of a light burning for eight days instead of just one paled in comparison to the Pesach miracle, when a God decided to “pass-over” the houses of Jews and kill the firstborn Egyptian male in each home along with the firstborn cattle (Exodus 12:12). Hanukkah, of course, while a major holiday in this country, did not become one for theological reasons. It is celebrated so Jews don’t feel left out when others
There are a lot of fans out there who believe that Tim Tebow may be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I’m serious. What if they’re right? The idea of Tebow being the Messiah was already out there when the inexperienced Denver Broncos quarterback began winning for his team in the fourth quarter. Before anyone knew it, the football phenomenon — who openly prayed on the field — had led the team to win six out of seven games. It was only last weekend that the Broncos finally lost to the New England Patriots. Even so, Tebow had scored a
(Dogfish Head Craft Brewery) Gluten-free beers — those brewed without barley, wheat or rye — make up a narrow sliver of the market, but their number is growing. In a recent blog item, I mentioned Nikki’s Gluten Free Ale from the Rock Bottom Brewery in Arlington. Now Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Del., has come out with Tweason’ale, another beer that can be safely downed by drinkers with celiac disease. “It’s being trucked to market as we speak,” said Dogfish president Sam Calagione of the new beer, which will be available in kegs and four-packs of 12-ounce bottles. Tweason’ale
President Obama? No. George H.W. Bush in his 1992 State of the Union address, delivered 10 months before voters made him a one-term president. No other president has been able to claim that dubious, single-term distinction in the last three decades. That could change this year as Obama, his approval ratings low and joblessness high, can expect a tough fight for another term. His State of the Union address on Tuesday will serve as the highest profile argument for why he should keep his job. But Obama’s task as he heads to Capitol Hill is a particularly difficult one. He
Because of the foundation they laid, Northern Virginia has become one of the richest and fastest-growing economies in the country. Northern Virginia is finally getting some of the money and attention it deserves from the state government down in Richmond. Tysons Corner, Reston and the Dulles Corridor were developed. Metro was built out into the suburbs. Dulles Airport was transformed from an isolated airport into a thriving domestic and international hub. And George Mason, where I now teach, has become the largest public university in the state and one of the up-and-coming state universities in the country. These days, however,
“Mormons are all crazy,” said my New York liberal atheist friend. ”They’re nuts!” “Why do you think they’re crazy?” I asked. “It’s a weird religion. Very strange,” he said. “It’s so recent. It’s not something that happened in biblical days. A burning bush in the desert thousands of years ago is one thing. But golden tablets in upstate New York in the 1820s is another. They call themselves the ‘Church of Latter-day Saints,’” he continued, “But Christianity was completed before then.” My friend is right about one thing: You couldn’t sell the fact that God spoke to Moses through a
“He died as he lived,” Mr. Paterno’s family said in a statement. “He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been.” News of Mr. Paterno’s death Sunday morning touched off an outpouring of grief and admiration on the Penn State campus in State College. Hundreds flocked to a statue of Mr. Paterno at the school’s Beaver Stadium. The base of the statue was decorated with scores of candles, flowers, T-shirts, and blue and white pom-poms. A moment of silence was observed at Assembly Hall in Bloomington,
