Wild Bill: The "Lesser of Two Evils" Foolishness

Midweek Potpourri

Morning temps below freezing, that is.

It was 36° at my house on the hillside, but 32 in the river valley below. That temp bounced around as I drove to work, reaching 39 at one location just outside of Anchorage.

The truck's thermometer reading dropped to 31 as I reached the district where my building is located, and the temp on the software which controls the HVAC shows 29.4° F. at the roof.

While the lows are supposed to be a bit higher over the next week, I guarantee you this: it won't be much longer before we look back at 29 degrees as the balmy last days of Fall.

Knowledge That Really Matters

To this, I would add only that one needs to know Jesus as their Lord. This is first and foremost among Man's needs.

We are born with a God-shaped hole in our hearts, and only Jesus can fill that need.

Sheriff Clarke Says "Get a Gun To Fight Back"

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke
From an article at Breitbart.com, this excerpt:

Speaking live to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on September 24, Clarke stated:
This is the world we live in now, [and Americans] are scared, but being scared is not enough. I say, you can hide under the bed, you can do all this other stuff, but you can fight back. And the more these individuals, these perpetrators, realize that somebody is going to quickly be able to counter their nonsense, I think you’ll see less [of these attacks]. If nothing else, you’ll be able to play a role in saving your own life.
Clarke said that as things now stand, attackers pick soft targets and “know that they’ll be able to shed a lot of blood before the situation is stopped.” He said Americans need to “wake up and get out of this naive view that the police will be able to protect everybody all the time.” He talked about Public Safety Announcements (PSAs) he runs in Milwaukee County, reminding residents that “they are the front line in their own security.”
