America, are you paying attention?

Folks, if this country doesn't wake up quickly to what is happening right before our eyes, one day we'll wake up to a country that we don't even recognize.

I want you to imagine that you are sitting at home, your home, with a group of 15 or so friends, and a government official knocks at your door. You answer the knock, and the government official proceeds to ask you a series of questions about what you and your friends are doing in your home. It turns out that you are holding a Bible study.

The government official tells you that you are in violation of the law. A few days later you are ordered to "stop religious assembly or apply for a major use permit."

Does this sound like something that might have happened in Cuba, North Korea, China, or maybe in the former Soviet Union? Yes, it probably has happened in all of those places. But this would never happen here, not in the United States of America. Would it?

Guess again! That's exactly what happened to David and Mary Jones of San Diego, California. You can read the 10News report here and the FOX News report here.

Read the reports.

I'm afraid for our country. I'm afraid for my children as they begin lives on their own. I'm afraid for my future grandchildren and the world in which they will grow up.

Americans had better wake up before it's too late!

Is This a Good Use of Our Tax Money?

As of May 15, 2009 the national debt was 11,270,547,397,564.64. So our government is now watching every penny it spends to make sure it is spent wisely, right? Well, not quite. Unless this seems to you like wise spending of our tax dollars.

The National Institutes of Health is spending $2.6 million to "study the link between alcohol use and the spread of HIV/AIDS among female sex workers in a single southern province in China."

The study, being conducted by lead researcher Dr. Xiaoming Li, Ph.D., of Wayne State University, hopes to "establish and evaluate whether an alcohol and HIV intervention center can assist in reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS among sex workers in China."

So our money is being used to educate Chinese prostitutes on the dangers of drinking on the job.

If you like that wise use of our tax dollars, you'll love this one.

The U.S. government is spending $400,000 to study risky sexual behavior of gay men in bars in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The research will be conducted in "public venues in Buenos Aires where men meet, alcohol is consumed, and sexual behavior occurs," with the goal of describing "the relative contribution of physical characteristics of the place, patron characteristics, type and level of alcohol consumption, and social dynamics that are at play and potentiate each other to result in sexual risk behavior."

So there you have it. Our tax dollars at work!
