“Americans Won’t Give Up Their Freedom And Prosperity – Unless They Are Frightened Into It”

"Americans Won't Give Up Their Freedom And Prosperity – Unless They Are Frightened Into It".

America The Beautiful

A Glorious and Blessed Fourth to my fellow patriots.

The way God answers a prayer..

I have been fulminating a lot over the evil that is our Federal Government at all levels–Obama, Congress, Three-Letter-Agencies–etc.

I pray for our Liberty and the America I love. Like many Americans, I am angry, repentant for my part in her trials and ready to kick these bastards out and get about being free people again.

“God?”, I prayed, again, as I was putting away a grocery cart. Looking up I saw a vanity plate on the front of a car that read: “Prayer changes things”

I knew with that look that God was answering me. To those who know God and Jesus, the experience is quite familiar. To those who do not–well, you do not.

God said “Yes, America will be restored”

Grace and Peace.

D-Day 2014

Thank you, men.

A prayer for American Vets

Thank you.

Chewsterton Orthodoxy

Glad I read it.

Chesterton’s prose gets tiresome after while.

His apologetics are wonderful.

Naturalism commands us to believe that mud somehow produced mind.

X-Plane 10 runs on Slackware64 14.1 (with Alien Bob’s 32 compatability libs)

yay!

My Dos install shot itself by installing an update I did not ask for as I was shutting down the computer. It warned ominously “do not turn of your computer”.

Yeah, up yours micorsoft it’s my freaking computer and I did not ask you for a darn update nor did you ask me for permission to install it.

So, I shut down the computer.

On next boot to dos (to #uninstall firefox, btw) the boot tried to load a dll, flubalated and frazzled itself. It also toasted the lilo installation on that disk.

Trying to re-install would not happen because the perfectly good partition, with files still on it, and visible and mountable from linux, was not usable for dos (winderz 7 btw).

Well, the only think of value on the dos install was X-plane 10. Since I got the Alien Bob’s 32 bit compat libs installed, and had previously had an install of Ubuntu that ran X-plane-10, I figured what the heck.

It worked. Totally, freaking awesome.

Now, what to install on that old dos partition. I am thinking open solaris or a BSD variant….

Opaltone is not the name, but I am getting closer!

There is a color scheme that I have always liked that I do not know the name for. However, it can be viewed here:

Opaltone

http://colorschemedesigner.com/ At the site, select [Color Space]->[Opaltone Colors] from the menu.

The muted blend of colors that appear no matter what which pallette is chosen (mono, compliment, triad, tetrad, analogic, highlighted analogic) is what something I have
always found appealing.

Looking at the graph in the lower left panel, I am noticing that the radius of the dots from the center is consistent. Perhaps that is the property that defines the color scheme.

I am not there yet! but I am closer!
