Welcome to my site

What can I say? I'm so pleased that you've come here. I've spent 5 years blogging, more than that building websites and have been writing "professionally" since 2003. I'm here to help writers with their writing, encourage people through this life, and point them to Jesus. That's the most important thing. So stay tuned. Check this site regularly as "some of the features" may change. I'll need help from time to time, because I'm not perfect. If you're perfect, please go to another site. I'm pretty sure you won't fit in here.

Unbalanced Scales

I'm sure everyone in the U.S. already knows that we are in danger. The problem is that so much of the rhetoric and the old rules are just antagonizing things.

For instance, only weeks ago all the media could do was talk about going over a fiscal cliff. Now, however, that cliff seems to have disappeared and they are talking about spending ceilings. I don't know about you, but this tells me that the people in Washington (D.C) don't know what they're talking about.

Then comes the IRS looming on the horizon. It's hard enough to get around with their hands in our pockets year round, but they expect an extra-special bonus via our Income Tax. We've been gritting our teeth and baring this for years, but now it's becoming harder and harder to find the forms to fill out, even if you can understand them, so you can send them in and pay that tax. I'm of the inclination that if they want my money they should come and fill out all the forms and make it easy. I'm not one of these people who expect freebies. It's just that the founding fathers didn't get paid, and if they did it was by their district, and probably in feed or livestock. I say we go back to that. You want to get out of our $15 trillion debt, then stop paying the people who aren't listening to us when we say, "No taxes."

I know, that's idealistic, but this country was built on ideals, and hard work made it work. That is until the government decided to pay for those who didn't want to work. Take a good idea and present it to Congress or the Senate and the first thing they do is appoint a special task force to investigate the problem. Oh, and all those tax problems we face, they do not face. How'd that happen. Whatever happened to "We the People..?"

STARLIGHTER, by Bryan Davis

This month the Chrisitan Fiction Review Blog tours STARLIGHTER, byt Bryan Davis. I have to tell that after 4 years of tours with CFRB I've read books of all kinds. STARLIGHTER is one of those extraordinary works.

Consider two worlds, sister planets, traveling around their sun on the same orbit, but maintaining an exact opposite distance from one another. In other words, what would it be like if on the same elliptical path as earth, yet on a point the furthest from earth? What if that world shared the ability to sustain life, but the intelligent life on that planet was different than that of the life on this planet? What stories could be told, myths to be weaved, doctrines to be created? Our story begins on the planet of Major Four. Directly opposite this planet on the same elliptical path, but at the furthest point was the planet they called Dacon. On Dacon we find its inhabitants call their planet Starlight, and Major Four to them as Darksphere. Dacon/Starlight and Major Four/Darksphere may have lived in blissful ignorance of one another if it hadn't been for two inhabitants, one from Major Four and one from Starlight. Together they discovered a Gateway that connected the worlds. After that discovery one planet stole the inhabitants of the other planet. This wasn't a continuing practice, but they raised these inhabitants like one would raise a herd of cows or something. They became beasts of burden. Not only that but they continued to procreate, negating the necessity to get more. The people would create the "more" for them.

STARLIGHTER is a story of many heroes, heroes of different kinds, who find one another and work together to accomplish some fantastic things. I could say much more, but why spoil the story for you. I'm sure this is one of those stories that you will truly appreciate for a long time to come.

Be sure to visit Bryan's site and see some of the special things he has prepared for you HERE

Due to problems with obtaining STARLIGHTER we only have 3 people, that I know of doing reviews, and one of them may not be able to post until later in the week. Here are the CFRB members giving reviews

IMPORTANT - Yeah, legally I have to tell you that I received a copy of this book and posted this review as payment for such. Interesting legal footwork, don't you think. Yes, I received a free book so that I could read and post a review for Bryan Davis. The thing is I've not only posted here, but posted 6 more reviews on the same book at http://cfrblog.blogspot.com Maybe I can get the U.S. Government to pay for 6 more books, seeing as I have to make mention of the free book for review thing. I'm not holding my breath. If I post a review here, it has nothing to do with having to post a review, but because I've dedicated myself to posting a review because the work is of a great enough quality.
