What's Your RoeIQ?

It has been 35 years since Roe v. Wade. Many people (me included), don't really know that much about the decision. So here is your chance to test yourself. Click on the link, and take the RoeIQ test. I found some of the answers suprising. Some things I didn't realize were connected to the case. Anyway, check it out for yourself.

Two Bits of Good News for Huckabee

First bit, Fred Thompson dropped out of the race. While I don't personally hold anything against Fred Thompson, I think his dropping out will benefit Gov. Huckabee. I know that many people (my mother-in-law included) were/are big Fred Thompson fans because of his conservative voting record in the Senate. I welcome them now to take another look at Mike Huckabee. Gov. Huckabee has a solid conservative record (despite what some journalist and interest groups say). Check him out for yourself at

Second bit, Duncan Hunter endorsed Mike Huckabee today. Duncan Hunter is a man of character with many strong qualities. His endorsement will be respected by many Republicans because the man himself is respected by many Republicans. I personally would love to see a Huckabee/Hunter ticket. If he doesn't end up as VP, I do hope that he is in the Huckabee administration somewhere.

Grasping for Straws

There is a really sad article mentioned on WorldNetDaily today.

A sister's comment that she was comforted after her brother's death in a catastrophic car crash by knowing he died doing what he loved – drinking and driving fast – has stirred up a wave of outrage along the foothills of Colorado.

Lorie Flaherty told the Boulder Daily Camera after her brother was one of three people killed when a car going down a city street at 100 miles per hour hit a light pole and exploded into pieces that such an accident "really isn't a shock to any of us" who knew her brother.

"The thing that really makes me feel much better about this is they died doing what they loved to do – they were drinking, they were going fast and they were together," she told the newspaper. "It gives me comfort, it does, to know those three things."

Are people really grasping at things so flawed and irresponsible to give them hope when a loved on dies? This to me is incredibly sad. The only hope for someone who dies is Jesus Christ. If you are not in him, there is no hope. Thankfully he offers himself as a free gift. If you don't know him yet, seek him. Read Luke and Acts.

For His Glory

After Mike Huckabee came in second to John McCain last night in South Carolina, I was feeling a little down. That is until I read a post on The post said we shouldn't forget that God is in control and that he knows what will bring him the most glory. Then at church someone mentioned not being able to figure God out, but if we could He wouldn't be much of a God.

So here I am in good spirits and looking forward to the rest of the 2008 Presidential Race. May it bring Him glory!

On a more secular note,
Kevin Tracy, has a great post about how this is just one more "got to haves" that Mike Huckabee didn't get, and yet still keeps going and growing. Here are a list of some of the things that the so called experts have said that Gov. Huckabee "needed" to stay in the game.
1. More than 1.5 million dollars 3rd quarter of last year.
2. A clear win at the Values Voter Summit in DC.
3. when someone was squatting on it.
I am sure that there are more things that could be added here, but you get the picture and Kevin says it so much better so go read his post.
