Judgement Day, Update 2

Pakistani Earthquake Round-Up, Sunday Evening Edition

I want to start this post off by talking to those in "disaster shock."

Less than a year ago was the Boxing Day Tsunami, and then here in the United States we've just had Hurricanes Katrina and Rita smash their way through the Gulf states. A mudslide in Guatemala triggered by Hurricane Stan wiped out an entire Mayan village just days ago. The Pakistani quake is the latest in a series of disasters that has come one after another.

People have been generous, raising money and donating time and services. So many people have given so much of themselves that they may feel that they have nothing left. To you, I'll get Biblical for a moment and offer you this from Malachi 3:10:

10 "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, " and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the LORD Almighty.

In other words, just, give baby. It will come back to you multiplied.

Now, back to the linkage.

Good post, and summary of relevant articles/blogs. Just a quibble: Lew Rockwell isn't a "liberal" blog by any definition I've ever heard.

Rockwell is a witch's brew of harsh libertarianism and more than a tinge of hatred of "neocons" and Israel.

Rockwell comes at Bill Buckley from the right, and represents the elements that we conservatives have been attempting to cast off for going on 45 years.

I apologize if I miscategorized Rockwell's site.

I went through over 350 blogs last night culling information for this and apparently misread his political affiliation. I glanced quickly at his blogroll, immediately saw Daily Kos and David Corn listed back-to-back, and made an erroneous assumption.

Thanks for the correction.
