In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence
is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.

National POW/MIA Day
To each family of a POW or a MIA, regardless of how many have been captured or are missing in a conflict, the fate of their loved one brings with it worry, anxiety and pain. Each family prays that their loved one is being treated well if captured and will be released soon to return to a grateful nation and a joyous family. For those missing, the family hopes the loved one makes his or her way back to friendly forces or has the status changed to one of more certainty, as an acknowledged POW or as an identified killed in action.Amen.
On POW/MIA Recognition Day, we remember the courage of our fellow Soldiers and servicemen and women as they endured captivity. We also remember the equal courage of their family members as they also endured their loved one’s captivity or the agonies of not knowing their fate. We remember and we hope for a conclusion to those trials.

So That's What 'Green' Refers To
Taxpayers could be paying an extra billion pounds a year to subsidise green energy projects like wind farms, according to a group of MPs. The Public Accounts Committee said in some cases the government is paying out twice as much as the wind farm companies need to break even.Devon Wind Power spokeswoman Rachel Ruffle said:
"I don't think people mind paying a small subsidy for clean, green electricity. [My emphasis]
A billion here. A billion there. Pretty soon we're talking real money.

It's a Major Award!
Captain Ed's blog, Captain's Quarters, has received the dubious honor of being named one of five top political blogs by the grandaddy of all men's magazines, Playboy. No need to worry. I'm reasonably certain that the good Cap'n only reads the interviews.

The Least of These...
Give early, give often. Even if you can only give a few dollars, every little bit will help. Check with your employer to find out if they match charitible donations. Avoid "Calamity Scams" by giving to established relief organizations. Here are a few you can trust:
Natl. Assn. of Evangelicals World Relief - DONATE HERE!
Salvation Army - DONATE HERE!
Samaritans Purse - DONATE HERE!
Feed the Children - DONATE HERE!
Soldiers' Angels Operation Katrina - DONATE HERE!
Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'

Gates of Fire
In his post, Gates of Fire, Michael's up close and personal journalism style gets a little too close for comfort. If it wasn't for his "middle of the action" photos, I might have found the story too amazing to be true. If this story doesn't end up on "the BIG screen", I will be very surprised.
Be sure to go here and read his past posts. It will give you a better sense of what's going on in Mosul than you'll get from the Left-Stream Media.
