February 9 Bunker Index - Facing Forward

Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement. I have been praying on the subject, and I believe I should focus my efforts on revealing the idols in modern society and in warning the faithful of what is coming. At least as far as this blog is concerned. I am pulled in different directions most days, but with effort and God's help I hope to keep my road fixed firmly in front of me.

I am currently working on a special knife project commisioned to help promote Michael Bunker's new book, The Last Pilgrims. I read the novella to this thing and it's a real thrill. The launch date is February 24th and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. But for now I've got to figure out how to smoothly plane some small planks out of some mesquite logs. It's beautiful wood but I think I lack some critical tools to make the best use of it. So today is a research day to figure out how to best do this without either wasting materials OR cutting off any fingers.

1. $772 million seems like a lot of money for cell phone services. I've noticed when I go through low income areas that everyone I see seems to have a cellphone. These aren't expensive devices and the service isn't too horrible, but they still seem to be an expense that someone who is desperately poor would choose to live without. I guess I understand now how they can all afford them.

2. Russia doesn't appear to want to let Syria go without a fight. Been about long enough between major world wars, I suspect. The enemy sure would like to see a good one.

3. At least we are a society that still feels this is wrong. This abortionist is charged with multiple counts of killing living babies with scissors. The sick mindset of those who are pro-abortion is what enables this to prosper.

4. The show of the century. The news media is getting ready for a major war with Iran. Americans love to see the projections of our military power. It makes us feel like we're still on top.

5. Lawmakers here in the U.S. have cleared the way for the usage of military drones in civilian airspace here in America. Soon you will be the most watched and scrutinized citizens on the planet.
