Dakota Voice Week in Review, Ending Sept. 3, 2011

These are the best of the best from Dakota Voice last week. If you missed out on some of the biggest stories of the week, this is your chance to get caught up.

Marco Rubio’s Courageous speech – Florida’s young Republican Sen. Marco Rubio recently gave an important speech at the Reagan Presidential Library in California that has set off the liberal talking-head universe. He had the temerity to suggest that the huge growth in government’s role in American life over the last century “actually weakened us as a people.” The resulting onslaught from liberal blogs and cable hosts comes as no surprise because Rubio directly took on the idol at which liberals worship — Big Government.

Homosexual News Roundup from Mass Resistance – America is in danger of surpassing the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, if it has not already done so. If we continue to allow our nation to slide ever deeper into the abyss of sexual perversion, how can we expect it to go any better for us than it did for those evil cities of old? We cant. That is what makes the work of groups like Mass Resistance so vital to our nations welfare. These people are fervently fighting to keep America on this side of the burn pile.

Scammers working South Dakota don’t care about you – Some scams are devilishly devious and some are comically clumsy. Whatever they are, they are out to make some big bucks at your expense. They are not like the proverbial duck; if it looks like a duck, if it acts like a duck, if it smells like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, more than likely it is a duck. Not so with a scam. If it looks like it will make money for you, if it asks you to help, and it begs like a pro, more than likely it is a scam out to get you for all it can.

Amazing Discovery: Sun Heats, Cools the Earth – I know this is going to be hard to believe, but scientists are indeed confirming long-held myths and legends that the sun has an incredible influence over heating and warming of our planet. I know, I know, modern science has for many years told us that it is the SUV, light bulbs, power plants, factories and evil capitalism in general that warms our planet–and warms it dangerously. But this new evidence could just turn “science” on its collective (collectivist?) head.

Greeting to the Congressional Black Caucus – Excluding Florida Republican Rep. Col. Allen West, who is an honorable American war hero and conservative patriot, today I have a few words for California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters and the various other deceitful people in the Congressional Black Caucus and their fellow-traveling leftists who are falsely accusing and attacking the taxpaying American citizens who foot the bill for this monster federal government and bloated welfare state that you all so dearly covet, because of the votes and power it brings you. Are you listening? Good. Your evil, stupid shtick is not working.

SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Medicare Making Piddly Work – Dont be upset with your doctor, hospital, laboratory, or insurance company if you get a newly recalculated bill for medical services received sometime from January through May in 2010. Blame it on Uncle Screw-Up, er, uh, I mean Uncle Sam and the Obama administrations management team at Medicare.

The Real Racists of American History – The race-bating Left loves to brand Republicans and conservatives as racists; since their policies are grossly inefficient and contrary to American principles, there is little else they can do to discredit the ideas of their enemies. A brief trip down the memory lane of history reveals who the real racists are, and who remains the enemy of freedom.

Neither Rationale for Social Security Is Working – A study by William Beach and Gareth Davis computed the cumulative effects of Social Security’s dismal returns. Imagine a community the size of Charlottesville, Virginia, of 44,000 young married double-earner couples in their 30s with each person earning the average wage and each couple having two children. That community loses $23 billion by receiving Social Security rather than what they could have saved in a private pension plan by retirement age using the same dollars.

Obama and His Uncle: Lawbreaking a Family Tradition – Had you heard that President Barack Obama’s uncle Onyango “Omar” Obama was arrested for DUI? That’s just the start. He’s an illegal alien who has a valid driver’s license and Social Security number who works at a liquor store where he sold booze to minors in the past. Apparently, lawbreaking is a family tradition in the Obama family.

The Church in Post-Christendom: Understanding the Good News (Part 2) – Under the institutionalized church-centric model, the churchsde facto mission was focused mostly on recruiting members through evangelism while mission was understood to be a program of the church. The goal or mission really settled on the institutional maintenance of the local church, whose success or failure was inevitably, and I dare say exclusively, measured by the number of members. However, as I pointed out earlier, the church of Jesus Christ is not the purpose or goal of the gospel, but rather its instrument and witness. This brings us to our second question: What exactly is the churchs mission?

Thank you, faithful readers, for making these the best of the best!
