Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Rule 5 Sunday

Maggie's Notebook has car tzar, Steve Rattner "ratting" out Mr. Obama.

Adrienne has an impressive linkage post - ok, ok, one of the links is me!

 Red has an important message for us all.

The Other McCain features a post on why driving RINOs out of office is always a great idea.

Have you seen the baby pictures at Get Along Home yet?

Joyce at GoldmanSachs666 explains why Goldman employees are so darn loyal.

At Bread Upon the Waters, hard questions are being raised on why there is no justice for USS Cole victims.

Common Cents features some compare/contrast pics of our dear leader, Obama and macho man, Comrade Putin.  Seems like the "establishment" who writes Obama's script should have made him buff up a little before he took office.

The CL has the latest incident from Police State USA - police brutality takes on a whole new meaning. I wonder if a cop says "Simon says" and you don't do whatever - will you be guilty of resisting arrest? Seems like that's the train of thought for some of these psychos.

Thus ends my modest linkage - since it's Sunday, thought I'd bring you this message via The Sacred Sandwich from the "Prince of Preachers", Charles Spurgeon. (BTW, he forecast the downgrade of Christianity in the 1870s):

I have seen boys bathing in a river in the morning. One of them has just dipped his toes in the water, and he cries out, as he shivers, “Oh, it’s so cold!” Another has gone in up to his ankles, and he also declares that it is fearfully chilly.

But see! another runs to the bank, and takes a header. He rises all in a glow. All his blood is circulating, and he cries “Delicious! What a beautiful morning! I am all in a glow. The water is splendid!” That is the boy for enjoying a bath!

You Christian people who are paddling about in the shallows of religion, and just dipping your toes into it—you stand shivering in the cold air of the world which you are afraid to leave. Oh, that you would plunge into the river of life! How it would brace you! What tone it would give you! In for it, young man! In for it!
Be a Christian, out and out. Serve the Lord with your whole being. Give yourself wholly to him who bought you with his blood. Plunge into the sacred flood by grace, and you will exclaim—

“Oh, this is life! Oh, this is joy,
My God, to find thee so!
Thy face to see, thy voice to hear,
And all thy love to know.”
May we thus walk in newness of life! Amen.
— Charles Spurgeon from his sermon, Christ’s Resurrection and Our Newness of Life.


  1. Hey, thanks for the link, and have a Great Sunday!

  2. Speaking of self-proclaimed Christians, I came across this link tonight and thought you might be interested.


  3. Obama worships at the church of Obama. The doctrines of this church tell him to blend however he needs to in order to achieve the next step.

    Being POTUS, he doesn't need to religiously pander anymore, thus he's not going to church. I commend him for not going through the motions of something he doesn't believe.

    I think the overseas Muslims, who have seen him pander to them, are seeing if he'll put his Islamic self out on the line - kind of like a test of faith.

  4. republicanmother, I just your link to me. Thank you so much.
