Want to end gun violence? End guns. We treat guns like toys then can’t understand why they’re misused. It’s time to take the children’s toys away.

This is how televangelists beat the IRS.

Off The Grid It might be surprising for some of you to learn that televangelism is still thriving in this country. According to available records, companies like Daystar, Trinity, and Inspiration Ministries are worth more than a quarter of a billion dollars and all of these companies are growing at a rate faster than ever before.

Donald Trump’s immigration plan can be summed up like this: build a wall by “making” Mexico pay for it, militarize the border by tripling the number of border patrol officers, kick out all illegal immigrants and end birthright citizenship.

Off The Grid That policy turns us into East Berlin. I would simply ask this question: is it going to be like Area 51? Because when I went and visited Area 51, they had clear signs posted that if you cross this line lethal force can be use. I find that astounding. You could be

Imagine a world where clicks equal dollars. Where likes and shares not only feed our egos, but also our children. A world where retweets and comments satisfy our inner desire to be accepted and liked, and pay our mortgages. Or do we live in that world already?

A Missouri grandfather who was serving life in prison without parole for nonviolent marijuana offenses has finally been set free.

The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana have collectively raked in at least $200 million in marijuana tax revenue, according to the latest tax data — and they’re putting those dollars to good use.

Jen Hobbs How long does it take a state to collect more than $117 million in tax revenue from a single industry? About a year and a half. The Huffington Post reports that Colorado currently has collected that much from the recreational and medical marijuana markets. Trailing close behind is the State of Washington. Washington

Pope Francis is really shaking up the status quo within the Catholic world: he says priests around the world can now forgive the “sin of abortion.” Amen.

Off The Grid “The forgiveness of God cannot be denied to one who has repented,” Pope Francis said.  He reportedly knows women who have been traumatized by the experience. The Pope’s blessing on the issue means that priests around the globe can absolve Catholics who, “with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for” having an abortion.   Related
