Nearly three quarters of American teenagers, or 73%, have engaged in at least one experiment with witchcraft or psychic activities, with about 50% having explored witchcraft.

The vast majority of Americans, 90%, say they pray daily, while 50% say they pray several times a day, according to a Brandeis Univ. study.
The study also reported that about 80% begin their prayers with a familiar greeting like "Dear Lord" or "Hello, Jesus," 75% of Americans pray for themselves, families and friends, and only 25% pray for themselves alone.
Asking God to guard loved ones or watch over children is one of the more popular prayers.

Another study, this time by British researchers, shows that people who believe in God are happier than agnostics or atheists. People become even happier the more they pray and go to church.
The researchers also found that religious people were better able to cope with disappointments, such as unemployment, divorce or the death of a spouse, than non-believers.

In his inspirational, and charismatic July 17, 2007, speech to Planned Parenthood sexperts, the now President Barack Obama encouraged "age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools," even for kindergartners. It is "the right thing to do," urged our democratically elected 2008 U.S. President. In fact it is really the left "thing to do."
The President would hand over kindergartners to Planned Parenthood (PP) mavens like he would hand over the U.S. Department of Justice to Big Pornography lawyer...

Warner Bros. took a gamble making the vile $150 million R-rated WATCHMEN.
On opening weekend it grossed nearly $55 million, which is quite respectable for the average movie. However, a closer look reveals weakness.
The director, Zack Snyder's, previous hit, 300, opened at 70.9 million. Paramount's $140 million IRON MAN, with a PG-13 rating, brought in $99 million opening weekend and went on to make $318 in domestic box office. Warner Bros.' PG-13 blockbuster, THE DARK NIGHT, made $158 million opening weekend and was 2008's box office leader with $533 in domestic box office.
Warner Bros. own exit polling showed that 65 percent of the audience for WATCHMEN was male. THE DARK KNIGHT's opening weekend came in at a much healthier 52 percent...

A common joke among Communists during the Cold War was that when they finally conquered the world, they would have to leave one country free to help them determine the prices for goods and services. Prices are determined by the law of supply and demand in a free market. Government bureaucrats do not have the ability, or the omniscient wisdom, to set the correct prices for goods. Without the marketplace, all they can do is guess or show preference for their pet projects - even if those projects are as outdated as the buggy whip.
