CircleCount52,441The people who have voted on our first pollCheck out the people who have voted on our first poll on CircleCount (http://www.circlecount.com/poll/1).Why are these people interesting? Because they are active! ;)We had a very good discussion with +Richard Hoefer and +Bearman Cartoons here: https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/AMbHGT3Qu1m and one idea was to feature a special group of people and not only the most followed or most engaging ones.I think this circle is not really what +Richard Hoefer meant, but it goes hopefully in the right direction ;)We like such unusual shared circles, since these people didn't act because we have offered to share them in a circle afterwards. They just did/voted/reviewed! ;)A year ago we have already shared a circle like this with the people who have written a review for our Chrome Extension:https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/6WCpwBTQxKj2013-04-19 10:25:26165772972

If I have you circled already, odds are you're already in one of them. (I keep 'em to 100 people max to avoid having daily add limit issues)If I don't already have you circled, and you'd like to be included, all you have to do is reshare this post publicly. The more exposure the better, right?Thanks to all for making these awesome#CircleShares possible. Without you, I'd probably still be stuck on Twittter. Thank you for that.2012-10-07 23:03:039811820

FWIW, I have to agree with Katherine Timpf (over at National Review)

If you want to know what Christians should be thinking and saying, look towards the life and ministry of Jesus.  Whatever Phil might say, I know what Jesus said when the Pharisees sought to stone a woman caught in adultery.  He simply wrote in the sand.  Because everyone dropped their stones and walked away, most scholars assume that Jesus actually wrote the Ten Commandments in the sand.

In the gospel of John, chapter 8, verse 7, Jesus went on to say "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone...."

Folks, Jesus is about the ministry of reconciliation.  Yes, there are standards by which we should live.  And these standards are eternal AND self-evident.  But whenever Jesus had the opportunity to seize the position as someone's judge, he deferred.  Jesuswill s... more »

It's **2001: A Space Odyssey* meets *Contact* meets *The Black Hole* - with a lot more science.*

I just finished watching Interstellar.  And it is a very long movie.  But it IS worth the investment of time.  There is a lot of real science here.  There is a lot of real conjecture here.  And there is a lot of very good story-telling here.  This will definitely end up in my top twenty-five science-fiction movies of all time.  How high it climbs up the list will require a few more viewings before I can assign it a final ranking.  But I look forward to watching it a few more times in order to give it the honest treatment that it deserves.

Sometimes, even Maureen Dowd gets it right, sort of.

First things first... I am not a 'fan' of Maureen Dowd.  I vehemently disagree with her politics.  And most of the time I disagree with her tone and tenor.  But it is hard to disagree with her intelligence or with her mastery of prose.  

In her column this week, she spends a lot of time outlining the difficult road that Hillary Clinton has chosen to tread.  Hillary is being asked to be everything: muscular and meek, wonkish and decisive.  She must be feminine without exhibiting all of the negative stereotypes that can come with that.  It is this balance of grace and strength that made Margaret Thatcher so compelling.  It is the lack of sincerity in Clinton's attempts to mimic Margaret Thatcher that is the most distressing.

In my mind, Hillary really needs to show us who she is.  This is not about crafting an image imagined by Mr. Clinton and Mr. Penn. Nor is it about her obvious intelligence.  It is about her trustworthiness.  Unfortunately, Mrs. Clinton is saddled with the perception that she wants and needs this role so badly that she will become whatever it takes to achieve her dream.

For me, the real issue is about whether this should matter to us at all.

As a Christian-in-training (for thirty-plus years), I must ask myself whether it even matters at all.  I have seen liberal leaders.  And I have seen conservative leaders.  I have even seen a few moderate leaders.  But what I haven't seen is servant leadership.  Like the tribe of Judah, there have been some great leaders and there have been some atrocious leaders.  

But what God wants is for us to proclaim Him as the king.  God must be our leader if we are to become what He has called us to be.  Good kings come and good kings go.  But the King of kings is good forever.  Let us bend our knees.  And from a position of petition and supplication, let us not ask for good leaders; let us as Him to lead us.  ___

Our Coptic brethren have lost their lives simply because of their faith.

May the Lord bless and protect the families of those who lost their lives.  And may the church rise up by falling to its knees.  In this country, being a Christian is not an offense (though it is offensive to some).  In other countries, following the prince of peace can mean the loss of your own life.  For those in the West, we are often dismissive of those being martyred around the globe - because we believe that it could never happen near us.

Indeed, we should look at the headline.  There are no pictures.  And there is no announcement concerning the faith of those who were martyred.  The title simply states that the Islamic state shot and beheaded 30 people.  Yes, these were people.  But these were also Christians.  We note the brutality (i.e., "shot and beheaded") but we fail to notethe reaso... more »

Ladies and gentlemen, our Christian brethren are facing the lion themselves.  May the example of our Coptic brethren be an inspiration to us.  May it rouse us from our all too peaceful slumber.  May we proclaim the peace of Christ to everyone around us.  The time is coming when we may be forced to stand and face the evil of this world.  Let us do so on our knees.  May we honor their current sacrifice by opening our lips and proclaiming Christ's magnificence.  ___

Mrs. Clinton claims that the Bible is her inspiration. Good. Maybe someday her words and her works may come together.

You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! James 2:19

I wonder how many tens of thousands of dollars Hillary spent on focus groups in anticipation of this question. ___Mrs. Clinton claims that the Bible is her inspiration. Good. Maybe someday her words and her works may come together.

Even the New York Times gets it.

Why are there more reporters than voters at recent Hillary Clinton events in Iowa?  Because the media cares more about her than does the public.  To the majority of the public, she is a screeching loon.  And the scandal over her email will not (and should not) ever go away.

She destroyed evidence after it had been requested by a Congressional leader.  If it isn't illegal, then it is wholly inappropriate on her part.  She is either a criminal or someone who is intellectually (or morally) unfit to be the leader of this nation.

Is being #1 a reason for legal action?

Apparently, it is enough for the EU. Yes, Bing and Yahoo both have sizeable ad revenue streams. And Apple's iOS is nothing to sneeze at in the mobile space.

But let's set that aside and ask one simple question: is it a sin to be the best at what you do? Let's hope that this is not what this is all about.

There are many good references on the subjet:

It's gritty, pulse pounding, and awe-inspiring.

I just starting watching the new Netflix original series, Daredevil.  And I am blown away.  For those who don't know the background, Daredevil is the story of a blind vigilante/hero who protects his city.  

The tone of the first few episodes reminds me of the first season of Arrow.  It is dark.  That is certainly for effect.  It is dark because the subject matter is dark.  But it is dark to place the viewer into the mindset of someone who can't see what is happening.  Yet like Matt, we can feel the fear and the power of the characters.  And since this is the Marvel universe, we are set New York City's Hell's Kitchen (and not a mythical place like Gotham City or Starling City).

The writing on this series is fantastic.  We are horrified by Matt's brutality.  But we are also treated to his sensitive side.  At the same time, the writer's are taking the time that is needed to develop the other characters of the show.    

After just a couple of episodes, I give this series two thumbs way up.  And I am thanking Marvel for such a realistic and compelling series.  This is a comic book company.  And they have cartoon franchises (not a surprise), a record-breaking box office franchise, and a really great TV presence (on ABC).  I didn't expect them to have such an adult offering.  But here it is.

With this show, Marvel is writing complex stories that really reach out to the target audience.  ___

"...the odor of desperation is unavoidable."

When you were a kid, do you remember when granny smelled...weird.  It was a combination of Chanel and mothballs.  Well, some folks want to bring that stale smell to a Presidency near you.

More tech fun for the family

The new color printer arrived. It took a little time to fill the ink tanks. But once that was done, the printer really started to shine.

It is also very easy to set it up for wireless printing - as long as you are able to run Android 4.4 (Jelly Bean). Since my tablet was not set up for that, it meant that I had to root the device and upgrade. Fortunately, there was a CM12 build for the tablet. Now I have Lollipop on the tablet AND wireless printing.

"When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns."

It may become the post-war fifties all  over again.  But this time, the folks with their finger on the trigger have already shown their willingness to die for their cause.  Terrorists will blow themselves up to prove a point.  Do we think that terrorist nations will do any less?

This could be the means of kick-starting ChromeOS.

Google's Computer On A Stick.
It looks like a bigger version of Chromecast; but, this USB stick plugs in to any TV's HDMI port, and becomes a real Chrome based computer. If you have used a Chrome PC, you will immediately be comfortable with the device. Most of us live primarily in a web browser these days; so, it makes sense that Google would create a device that is a carry it in your pocket Chrome computer. The device has a full sized USB 2.0 port for peripherals like a mouse, keyboard, printer, scanner and so forth. While not the most powerful computer around, it has plenty for ordinary computing tasks. Don't want a Chrome based computer? Get the Intel HDMI stick that turns any TV into a Windows Desktop. Google's device will be available this summer. ___This could be the means of kick-starting ChromeOS.

I can't wait for the final!

Way to go, Wisconsin!  In the past, I would have rooted for Duke - as the ACC team.  But with the ACC becoming the geographic mess that it now is, I could care less if Coach K wins or not.  Yes, I think that he is one of the greatest collegiate coaches of his generation.  But I'm rooting for David.  He already slew Goliath and the Philistines.  Now it's time for them to ascend the throne.

Do you want to know the definition of a martyr?

  It's not someone who will blow themselves up in order secure some quantifiable number of virgins to exploit in the after-life.   Rather, it is someone who is killed simply because of what they choose to believe.  I look forward to meeting these men and women when I reach my eternal rest.  God, have mercy on those who committed this heinous act.  Send men and women to them who will share with them the story of a sacrificial and forgiving God.

“Any hope that a nuclear deal will lead Iran to abandon its decades-old pursuit of regional dominance through violence and terror is simply delusional..." - Joint statement from Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. John McCain

How irrational is our President?  If we don't get an agreement with Iran through conceding away Israel's right to exist, then we will be forced into a situation where we must enforce even tougher sanctions.  

A rogue is a rogue, even when it's a rogue nation.  Mr. President, stop negotiating with terrorists.  Their actions have been reprehensible (e.g., Hamas).  It's time to take off the gloves.  Increase sanctions - and enforce them, for once.

"While it’s hardly surprising to see legally ignorant sportswriters use the language of segregated lunch counters, it’s disturbing to see well-informed CEOs such as Apple’s Tim Cook conjuring up the specter of the Old South."

Enough already.  Why doesn't the loony Left put together a fund to pay for a court challenge - rather than creating a hash-tag (#boycottindiana) and fomenting general unrest and incivility?  If you don't like Indiana products, don't buy them.  Or better still, don't go there.  But can we please abandon the inflammatory (and possibly defamatory) rhetoric for just a little while?

'Pro discrimination' laws?  Really?

I don't think people have looked at the law or considered its context.  The Indiana law was designed to protect the religious liberties of its citizens.  You can't make someone do something that is against their religious beliefs.  To do so on the altar of being anti-discriminatory is ludicrous.  

This whole nightmare is because one group feels singled-out.  So let's resolve that problem.  Let's eliminate any deductions, exemptions or exclusions for marriage in our current tax policy.  If people want to live together, then that is their business - not yours or mine.  Let's not get the government involved in saying who should and who should not get tax benefits.  Instead, no one gets tax breaks.  And maybe we ought to change or tax system to make it a simple revenue tool - not a means where the governmenttells peop... more »

Had it not been for 9/11, the United States never would have permitted the creation of such an army.

But now that Mideast terrorism is a palpable threat and the United States has altogether withdrawn from the world stage, the formation of a united Arab army seems almost logical.  But it is also seriously alarming.  

Once Sunnis and Shiites can resolve their differences, the pieces will all be in place.  Can the Mahdi be very far away?

Perseverance matters!

After every fight, there comes a moment when you consider abandoning the ground that you have just won. Fear and exhaustion beg you to relax and coast. In such a moment, seek insight, refreshment and revitalization from the one who crested you - cuz He is the best one to sustain you.

FWIW, I have to agree with Katherine Timpf (over at National Review)

If you want to know what Christians should be thinking and saying, look towards the life and ministry of Jesus.  Whatever Phil might say, I know what Jesus said when the Pharisees sought to stone a woman caught in adultery.  He simply wrote in the sand.  Because everyone dropped their stones and walked away, most scholars assume that Jesus actually wrote the Ten Commandments in the sand.

In the gospel of John, chapter 8, verse 7, Jesus went on to say "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone...."

Folks, Jesus is about the ministry of reconciliation.  Yes, there are standards by which we should live.  And these standards are eternal AND self-evident.  But whenever Jesus had the opportunity to seize the position as someone's judge, he deferred.  Jesuswill s... more »

While I might agree with some of what Phil Robertson says, I would much rather be accused of following Jesus the Christ.  And that's why they call us Christian; we are Christians because of our love, not because we follow any single human mouthpiece - whether they be saint or sinner.  ___

I just finished watching Interstellar.  And it is a very long movie.  But it IS worth the investment of time.  There is a lot of real science here.  There is a lot of real conjecture here.  And there is a lot of very good story-telling here.  This will definitely end up in my top twenty-five science-fiction movies of all time.  How high it climbs up the list will require a few more viewings before I can assign it a final ranking.  But I look forward to watching it a few more times in order to give it the honest treatment that it deserves.

Net neutrality regs are awful. But federal regulation may very well be upheld. It's too bad that the executive branch doesn't"t have the authority to impose such regulations.

Let's start with the obvious: seizure of private property is anti-American. And that is what the FCC is trying to do.

But is it constitutional?

Yes and no.

The Commerce clause of the first article gives the federal government the authority to regulate interstate commerce. So a simple and compelling case can be made that the federal government can regulate the Internet.

But does this mean that an unelected bureaucracy in Washington can do this? Absolutely not. Congress can legislate these controls; the executive branch cannot.

Congress needs to step up and strip the FCC of this authority. Furthermore, Congress needs to establish clear legislation on this subject. Our President has overreached. It is up to Congress to seize the authority taken by the king. The authority to regulate commerce belongs to the people and not a bureaucratic arm of a tyrannical executive.___

I can't wait to see what the ISP's (especially the cable companies) will do with this.  

Really, does anyone expect that the cable companies will reduce their bundle prices?  Where I live, I can't even get naked Internet at the highest speeds w/o taking a bundle that includes HBO.  I want this.  But I wonder how long it will take for TW, Cox and Comcast to react?  

Sometimes, the best solution is the simple one: cut the bundling cord.  Just offer us naked Internet access - cuz if you don't, I'll move to someone (like Google Fiber) that will.

Contrary to the sentiments of Israeli voters, President Obama may leverage the UN to compel Israel to accept a two-state situation.


The hubris of our President may be unmatched. After losing Congressional elections to conservatives, the President wants to overrule Congress and bar their Constitutionally-mandated approval of all international treaties. But what is worse than that would be his abdication of authority to the UN. And worse still, he might support imposed agreements on a sovereign ally.

Folks, these are dark times when the US acts like an imperial tyrant and seeks to impose its will upon Israel.

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Bibi pulled off a pretty spectacular piece of footwork in the most exciting election finish I can remember.

Bang.  Bibi won in dramatic fashion by beating back his opponents: both in Israel and in the United States.  He should be commended for his victory.  But his last minute declaration that there would be no chance for a peaceful settlement (with the Palestinians) may set the stage for all sorts of trouble for the nation of Israel.

But until then, I say "Bravo, Prime Minister Netanyahu."  This election was well-played.

The third person Netanyahu plans to call, should he win the election, is the president of the United States

Let's hope that our President accepted that third call.
