What the heck is a Tariff?

Tariffs are taxes imposed by a country on specifics or general goods and services imported from another country. This can also be done from Parish to Parish or State to State or City to City. Any product or service coming from anywhere into your community can have political or economic tariffs, whether used to promote growth or impose punishment.

So, lets breakdown the tariffs and its purposes:

Tariffs are used to restrict imports or promote a country to increase its prices to offset those same restrictions forcing vendors to increase the price of products and services (put a tariff on it to make the price go up if the price goes up it’s harder to sell)

Probably the most successful article that I have written is the paper on Louis Moses Rose, the only deserter of the Alamo. A doctoral candidate from Rice Institute of Houston sent a small clipping to the Logansport Interstate Progress newspaper desiring information on Moses Rose who was buried in the Aaron Fergurson Cemetery six and half miles northeast of Logansport, La. Koy Pace contacted me and the search was on for the Fergurson Cemetery and Moses Rose. No one that we contacted had ever heard of either but around the turn of the century the name had changed from Fergurson to Whitten Cemetery. The article written on Moses Rose ran in the Shreveport Times, featured by Bob Griffin, and I gave a speech at St. Augustine, Texas. The Historical Group from there placed the article in the Alamo.

People’s likes and dislikes vary a great deal but most enjoy odd things, largest things, oldest things or something that is just plain different from the normal. This article deals with first churches in the United States. America was settled primarily by different religious groups that wanted to worship freely or not worship at all; however, our forefathers set up the government on Judo-Christian Principles. Through the years Americans have learned to respect various religions much better that almost any other country in the world.

Tips for the Lunch Box

Kids are back in school, and one of the most hectic morning chores is to pack a lunch. We want them to eat healthy, but we want them to love it, too. We need make-ahead ideas, and make it easy for kids to pack their own. Here are some great tips for packing a lunch. These are good tips for the adult lunchbox as well.

* Fresh Fruits and Veggies – Veggies are one of the easiest pieces to any lunch box. Scrape and cut carrots into 1/4” strips. Cut broccoli into florets. Celery can be sliced into 3” pieces. Then pack an assortment into individual sandwich bags. Each morning, grab one and toss it in the lunch box. For fruit, toss in an apple, or a bag of grapes, strawberries or a banana.

My heart is burdened for today’s Christian teenagers.

My fear is that, while they may experience a sense of community and love in their church environment, the large majority of them do not know what they believe and why they believe it.

Dr. Sean McDowell, a professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University in La Mirada, California, as well as a parttime high school Bible teacher, is driven by a desire to help those in “Generation Z” to be able to provide answers and reasons for the supremacy of the Christian faith.

Watching the US Congress fight with Facebook over its new digital currency is like history repeating itself. It is likely that all global currencies are making its way back to gold as the top currency. Government, corporation, and private citizens all seem to want to dictate how we utilize currencies.

It is interesting to think of how one’s mind operates when thinking of topics of historical significance week after week. Of all things the name Virginia Dare came to mind for this week - But who is Virginia Dare?

Early in the colonization of America a colony led by Sir Walter Raleigh was brought to Roanoke Island just off the coast of present day North Carolina. The first group or attempt was in 1584 but it only lasted a year before the weary, half-starved settlers returned to England. Three years later Raleigh sent a second expedition of 117 men, women and children under the leadership of John White. On August 18, 1587 shortly after reaching Roanoke, Governor White’s daughter, Eleanor White Dare gave birth to a daughter who was the first Caucasian child to be born in American. The child was christened Virginia Dare. How interesting that this writer should remember such a small bit of information from his sixth grade in school.
