President Obama signs 923 executive Orders claim is False

In the last few days an item has been spreading around the internet about President Obama signing 923 executive orders during his term in office.  A quick check shows this claim is false. In fact the ones in the article that are said to be signed to Obama actually were signed by other Presidents as the linked article shows.

The Annual Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday's Debate has begun and a Silly Debate it is

Posted by Zman

Looks like the annual Merry Christmas, Happy holiday's debate has begun, Too me the whole thing is silly. Happy Holiday's is said to include the entire season from Thanks giving to New years, Merry Christmas is said to reference that holiday specifically. I don't remember this being a big deal until the last ten to fifteen years. Up until then people said Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas and no one was offended by either greeting. and I'm seeing posts on both sides of the issue and to me the whole thing is silly. I mean how does someone saying Happy Holidays to you take away from your celebration of your holiday. and if someone says Merry Christmas to you even if you don't celebrate it why not just say Merry Christmas to you too in response. Getting all bent out of shape because someone wished you Merry Christmas makes you seem like a four year old. Same if you get bent out of shape if someone wishes you Happy Holiday's. How hard can it be to just say Happy holidays and a Merry Christmas to you too. Combine both greetings in your response. That's what I do when someone wishes me Merry Christmas. I say, "and a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season to you too." I personally prefer "Happy Holidays" because it includes the whole holiday season and what ever someone responds with I simply say, "thank you" It just seem to be a little childish to get hung up on a greeting. and that goes for people on both sides of this silly debate.  Sheesh,  seems like everything Christmas starts earlier every year.

Charlie Fuqua, Arkansas Legislative Candidate, Endorses Death Penalty For Rebellious Children In Book

Seems the Republican Party is full of people who are just bat shit crazy.  and this guy tops the crazy pile.  As far as I'm concerned he deserves to be tarred feathered and run out of town.  

From the article 

"The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellious children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21:
This passage does not give parents blanket authority to kill their children. They must follow the proper procedure in order to have the death penalty executed against their children. I cannot think of one instance in the Scripture where parents had their child put to death. Why is this so? Other than the love Christ has for us, there is no greater love then [sic] that of a parent for their child. The last people who would want to see a child put to death would be the parents of the child. Even so, the Scrpture provides a safe guard to protect children from parents who would wrongly exercise the death penalty against them. Parents are required to bring their children to the gate of the city. The gate of the city was the place where the elders of the city met and made judicial pronouncements. In other words, the parents were required to take their children to a court of law and lay out their case before the proper judicial authority, and let the judicial authority determine if the child should be put to death. I know of many cases of rebellious children, however, I cannot think of one case where I believe that a parent had given up on their child to the point that they would have taken their child to a court of law and asked the court to rule that the child be put to death. Even though this procedure would rarely be used, if it were the law of land, it would give parents authority. Children would know that their parents had authority and it would be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents."  

Any God that would condone this action is not the kind of higher power I'd choose to believe in.  If that's his version of a loving caring higher power than no thanks, I'll pass.  If I believed in a god it would not be the kind that would condone this action.

30 Years ago Today (October First) The Compact Disk went on sale for the first time

While today Compact Disks (CD's) seem like a relic, back in 1982 they changed the way we listen to music.   Here is a great article on the history of the CD and how it was developed.
