God gave man dominion over the earth, and the practical wisdom to use it for his good and His glory God placed the treasures of the earth for man's benefit. Political correctness denies God's goodness, while practical wisdom directs thankful use of His bounty. We were told we could not drill our way out of our problems while practical thinking doers were proving the stupidity of the statement. Ivory tower thinking is of little use to our progress while practical planning is our salvation from crisis. Dishonest charlatans pursue politically correct ideologies, while wise people use practical solutions. Practical plans always trump divisive dreams. Practical planning and hard work built our great nation - political correctness and sloth are destroying it. Practical truthfulness applied to our many problems can, in God's will, overcome the evil plans of our dishonest, lying oppressors. The Golden Rule Jesus gave us is the epitome of practical consideration of others. The Marshall plan after WW II was practical wisdom applied - pacification of Islam before WW III is ideological suicide. Practical plans and hard work built this great nation - ivory tower thinking and slothfulness is its doom. Practical workers build houses on rock foundations - Foolish men build on sand, and great is their fall. See Matthew 7: 24-27. A practical man planning to build a tower, sits down first and counts the cost. See Luke 14:28. Practical people energetically earn their keep and support others - lazy dreamers feel entitled to exist on the fruits of others' efforts. Practical politicians endorse responsible, truthful fiscal policies - dishonest liars waste our resources and leave the pitiful mess for our grandchildren to suffer under. Impractical charlatans promise anything to gain power - practical planners tell the truth, even when it is unpopular. The lies of evil leaders imprison the souls of the masses - the truth shall make us free. See John 8:32. Peace and joy come to practical people. Dishonest dreamers exist in turmoil and fear. One practical person benefits the community more than a score of entitled lay-abouts.

Bob W. Killick, an organic chemist, shares his extraordinary journey from unemployment to unlikely entrepreneur in this inspiring memoir. After losing his job and being told repeatedly he was too qualified to be hired, he came up with a creative solution — team up with his wife to buy, mainly on borrowed money, a fifty-year old decrepit chemical factory. The venture meant getting up at five o’clock each morning and traveling across town to work with a team determined to build a multi-million dollar business in a cutthroat industry. Along the way, they developed environmentally-sound products and with sweat and tears obtained several international patents. At the helm of the Victorian Chemical Company, he’d take a proactive approach to growing a business—never letting a good, clean joke get in the way of an international business deal. Join Bob, his wife, and his team on an exciting ride that proves that you can achieve extraordinary business success while maintaining your integrity and adhering to Christian principles.
