Probably one of the greatest kits I’ve ever seen.  Very, very well done.

brokeandbespoke:

I was inspired to recreate the look reblogged below at brokeandbespoke prices, though I chose a more staid pocket square. I think I might wear this next week with a more decorative pocket square, similar to the one below. We’ll see…

Jacket: LL Bean now-unconstructed (I removed some shoulder pads) and half-lined cotton sport coat, thrifted $5

Shirt: Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted $5

Tie: J Crew, thrifted $2

Pocket Square: Touristy silk scarf from Ponte Vecchio, estate sale $3

Pants: Polo Ralph Lauren white jeans, $11

One of the greatest posts I’ve read on Conservatism from a Millennial.  I hope to write a similar post at some point.

actuallymittromney:

In our society of constantly-shifting paradigms and values, it can be difficult if not impossible to define the parameters of a particular ideology or school of thought. And so today, I do not intend to erect any rigid walls around conservatism, as the spectrum within the movement is as varied and…

This is stupid thinking.
Don’t get me wrong, God is sovereign!  When writing about salvation Paul writes in Romans 9 that “it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.”  And to that I say, Amen; God made Himself known to us!  However, are we not the vessels by which God reaches others?  What’s the point of being a Christian or following the Bible if we do not create change.  By this thinking, once I become “saved” I have no other debts to pay nor duties to fulfill.  By this thinking I shouldn’t use a seat belt because it’s already decided whether I will die today.  By this thinking I should never use glasses to correct my vision nor medicine to help treat my ailments because that’s how God has deemed it to be.  This thinking is stupid, and I urge you to vote no matter what party or line of thinking you’ve committed yourself to.

Sacrifice for Safety

An excerpt from Dr. Mark Caleb Smith’s article in Cedarville University’s The Torch.

While demagogues rely on prejudice and ignorance to gain power, other political leaders create anxiety within the population by envisioning a bleak future, one where chaos reigns or where physical harm is around every conceivable corner. This approach plays upon our fear of an uncertain future, one that might threaten our financial security or our physical safety. Since 9/11, our government, led by both political parties, has used our fears for our personal safety to restrict our rights and liberties. Previously unheard of invasions of personal privacy are now routinely justified simply to protect us from terrorists. While we have all heard stories of grandmothers being humiliated during pre-flight security checks, we have also gladly cooperated as uniformed agents X-ray us and pat us down. We have learned to passively watch as complete strangers rifle through our most personal belongings, even after they have been run through sophisticated detection equipment. Due to national security concerns, government routinely surveils us and our vehicles, monitors our cellphones, and searches and seizes our electronic communication without probable cause. Our fear for our own safety has forced us to humbly sit by as government’s reach into our lives continues to lengthen and strengthen.The general response I hear, when raising these issues with students and others, is, “Well, if you aren’t breaking the law, you don’t have anything to worry about.” We are, indeed, a bit different from Patrick Henry, who, when confronted with an invasion of his economic liberties (“no taxation without representation”), bellowed, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” Our generation’s glib response to governmental encroachments that would have made Samuel Adams pick up a musket is more along the lines of, “Whatever, just as long as I can make my flight and check out the new episode of Glee on my smartphone.”
