Re: focus this and next year on paying off debt?

Patzer writes: As long as you're focused on getting 1% or 3% or 5% back, you're not looking at the right measure. You should be looking at what you spend, not what you get back.

Credit where due.

I don't agree with a lot of what Christian Astronomer Hugh Ross asserts, but I was pleased to see him take on Televangelist John Hagee, who's been raking it in for two years with his "Four Blood Moons" nonsense. [more]

Re: secret religious war
