Adopt a Conservative! Digg?

This week’s edition of “Adopt a Conservative!” includes highlights from a post by TheLiePolitic.

I Digg. Do you?

digg

Talk about a mission field….or is it a minefield instead? While I sometimes grapple with the importance of the social networking site Digg, I came across Digg A Conservative Or Moderate Article TODAY! How To Support Your Ideals!

I do want to say that I thoroughly enjoy Digg and sometimes spend way too much time on it. However, I’ve come across some excellent stories and posts, and met some good virtual friends as well!

Here’s some highlights from Digg A Conservative Or Moderate Article TODAY! How To Support Your Ideals!

Digg is one of the most powerful websites in the world. People wait daily for the next big Digg and will jump on new articles that make the front page (lovingly referred to as the FP by Digg fans) to get into the craze of reading and Digg-ing the latest and hottest article.

Digg presents articles in all possible categories. Computers, science, personal interest, you name it!! And regardless of what anyone tells you, it is a sensation and absolutely enormous. According to Alexa, Digg.com is ranked the 248th web site in the entire world. It is hard to fathom that number, but that places it ahead of cnbc.com, and it dwarfs competitive sites like reddit.com at 3831, and showhype at 5338.

For a site to make it under 1000 in the Alexa rankings places it in the elite company of sites like ebay, amazon, and yahoo. We realize these leaders are well ahead, but Digg clearly has power and is getting stronger. How much does it mean to an article that receives Diggs? Getting an article to the front page on Digg has been known to generate so many hits that it often brings sites down because they just can’t handle the traffic.

Biased Politics?

Now why, if you are a conservative or moderate, should you care? Because Digg has made an obvious statement, and they clearly have a liberal, if not radical, political agenda. They are as left wing as any web site can be, and have chosen to spotlite outright political lies and shine a beacon on them to blaze a trail for the liberals to blindly follow.

Be sure to read the full post here. There’s some important information about the steps, you as a conservative, can take.

Final Thought

Do your part America. Let the liberals know they don’t own the web. They just think they do.


DIGG this very post now!

Breeze: Friday Top Five

Second week of Shooting the Breeze’s Friday Top Five includes some great posts. We read, we post, we link!

Here’s my pick for the week of February 1-6:

1. Persecution Blog co-author Hal has North Korea on his heart. The country is one of the greatest offenders of human rights in the world today. Many rank this country as the number one persecutor of Christians. Pray today for North Korea

2. It ain’t breaking news unless it’s on Twitter? I have not joined the bunch that messages on Twitter. But, Sarah Pulliam at the ChristianityToday Politics Blog managed to break news with her Twittering the National Prayer Breakfast post.

3. Baptist Press posted a good article, Out of devastation, God has worked good, by David S. Dockery on the one-year anniversary of a tornado outbreak in the South. He writes… a year ago today — people across Tennessee and the entire Southeast were going about their normal, everyday business — until 87 tornadoes broke out in the region…Devastation was all around, but there was no despair. The words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4 became our own.

4. It’s always good to keep up to date on what Living Water’s Ray Comfort is doing! I caught up with him at Pull the Plug on Atheism and loved his a challenge to an atheist professor post.

5. Another blog to check in with often is Pyromaniacs. This week’s Requires of Him will challenge you!

Breeze: Friday Top Five

In my defense, I may be a day late, but I’m not a dollar short on this Friday feature…well, maybe sort of…in today’s bail-me-out psyche.
port-of-friday-harbor

Through Peter P’s “Rediscovering the Church” blog I found Kevin Martineau’s “Friday Top Five – What where your favorite posts from last week?” This “Shooting the Breeze” feature is a must read…and if so inclined, a very fruitful promising participation.

Here’s my quick recount of last week, in no particular order:

1. No better time than now to know where that Light can be found. Thanks, Yvette, for Light that Candle in a Dark Place found in your Fresh Wind Ministries blog.

2. A greater and deeper look at baptism. Should we always look at it from a “water” perspective? Two thumbs up for Brother Mark’s Baptised Into The Body of Christ!

3. Uplifting and thought provoking poetry can always be found at Versical’s Blog. Mike’s post Happiness is one I chose for this week…how true, how true!

4. There aren’t fitting words to describe my reaction to this video of an abortion survivor’s talk and message. “Wow!” is one of the responses I had and from many others who sent me a response back from my forward. The Life of Thomas is truly an excellent blog…and this particular post, Inspirational Video has already touched many hearts.

5. Oh, what the heck…here’s one of mine…after all, it IS Super Bowl weekend! Super Bowl Faithful Unashamed.

Have a blessed day…and please consider joining us on this Friday Top Five journey!

New Website: Burning Off Donut Calories…and More

TheBigRuski Goes Healthy is about a lot of stuff, including my journey to better health. Which, BTW, took a detour the other day towards Donut Road.

So, in my latest post we ask: How do we burn off the calories from an old-fashioned chocolate covered donut? More specifically, how did I? How did I burn off 250 calories.

New Series: ‘Today’s Evidence’

Origin of the Bible

A new series called “Today’s Evidence” begins at my blog Alexander. The first post makes the point that in proving God’s existence, it is important to discuss “God’s Manuscript,” as some would call it.

Did you know that there are more than 14,000 existing Old Testament manuscripts and fragments copied throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean and European regions that agree dramatically with each other?
