If you had asked me a few months ago for my opinion regarding “fresh expressions of church,” I think I would have looked quizzically at you and then said that I wasn’t sure what you meant but couldn’t imagine it was something of which I would be in favor.

Revealing the truth

Barack Obama is not a Muslim … and Sarah Palin did not order books banned from the library when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska … Heard that Obama was really born in Kenya and thus not eligible to be president? Wrong. Heard that Palin was a member of the Alaska Independence Party? Nope, she wasn’t.

CNN has posted an article about the rumors regarding the presidential candidates that are circulating the Internet and the candidates’ efforts to rebut them. Very interesting! Read the article here.

Also take a look at Barack Obama’s birth certificate. It would have been nice if the candidate’s site provided a copy that actually looked legit. Not that I wouldn’t love to learn that Obama is not qualified to become president. Am I the only one who thinks that image doesn’t look like a scanned paper document?

By the way, yes, the rumors are true: I am voting for McCain-Palin. I am not a fan of John McCain, but am really not a fan of Barack Obama and I think Sarah Palin’s pretty cool.

“I want to warn other smokers. We have paid our National Insurance stamps all our lives and now we are being shut out of the NHS.”

See the full story, Smoker refused operation on broken ankle, for full details. I’m not a fan of smoking, but what happens when the government decides that web developers are less likely to heal following surgery? With all of the bad habits out there, a national health plan could cost the taxpayers billions of dollars without ever paying a cent.
