In an unbelievable move, tens of thousands of California farm jobs are being forced out since an endangered 2″ minnow was found stuck in a pump. Vast orchards are withering, compliments of our federal government. Why the governor is putting up with this is beyond me.¬† It must not be an election year.

I remember sitting in a doctor’s office several years ago and picking up a science magazine in the waiting room and being in total awe of the most impressive picture I’ve ever seen. Astronomers had pointed the Hubble telescope into a tiny spot of space that was completely dark on a star map and they turned on Hubble’s “deep field” sensors. For 11 days, the sensors picked up light that had been traveling for billions of light years. Within that tiny dark spot of space was revealed over 10,000 galaxies filled with stars. The article explained this is like taking a grain of sand and holding it at your arms length and then blowing it up to full size. Imagine how many grains of sand you could fit in a sphere all around you and each one of those grains of sand holding tens of thousands of galaxies each holding millions or billions of solar systems.

It’s no wonder Enoch exclaimed, “And were it possible that man could number the particles of the earth, yea, millions of earths like this, it would not be a beginning to the number of thy creations; and thy curtains are stretched out still; and yet thou art there, and thy bosom is there; and also thou art just; thou art merciful and kind forever;” (Moses 7:30)

This video graphically portrays this awesome picture.

You’ve got to love the universe. Nobody creates works of art like God.

My next project is online now and looking for help. Utah’s Republic is an online education site teaching¬† about the difference between a Democracy and Republic and asking by petition for the state to modify a few of the state history standards since the word Republic is never mentioned once. The petition also calls for better U.S. government texts that actually use the original intent of our Founding Fathers in establishing our governmental system, and lastly to ask that September 17th Constitution Day programs teach that natural rights are not given or taken by the majority in a Democracy, but these rights come from God (or for the atheist from nature) and no one has a right to deprive you of these natural rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To see how far gone we are, here’s a funny “on the street” video asking local people about what form of government we have, and then one about a tragic school district motto in one district in Utah…you’d never guess who.

Unbelievably, citizens of Britain are inviting the government to monitor their children inside their homes to make sure they are doing their homework and eating their veggies. Families will have to sign a “behavior contract” to participate.

I’m so glad nothing like this could happen in America with the government intruding into our homes. Oh wait, I guess the Obama administration is asking citizens to spy on each other if anything “fishy” is being spread about his awesome health care plan.

I’m glad it’s going so well for the administration. Citizens of Philadelphia quickly embraced the President’s plan and Senator Arlan Specter’s call to “do this fast”.

I mean it’s not like it’s really expensive or anything…at least it’s not going to move us toward socialism or anything…
