    Think the Almighty as the He, think the Christian Holy Book. Think the play on words... It's coffee not alcohol for consumption. How often is "cafe" in the name of a bar?

    I went there soon after it opened. Seemed like a very nice place, nice people. I asked if they were open to non-Christians and they were open to all. The kind of Christians my parents were. I like to see local businesses succeed. Especially when they're nice to me ;)

    Interested readers are encouraged to Google "Solano safety net summits on Poverty". Christina Arrostuto and her Obama comrades are constantly feeding the public with the big lie. The big lie is that by throwing more money into antipoverty programs like those proposed by Arrostuto and Obama that poverty will be lessened. When the decades of evidence is in the opposite direction. If these programs to lessen poverty were effective, why is there more poor people? Why are there articles in the local news about Lee Bell park and the undesired inhabitants? Another shooting on Alaska Ave? Mother sets her babys on fire? More late-night visitors to the overpopulated house down the street? Antipoverty programs are not designed to eradicate poverty--antipoverty programs are designed to fill the pockets of the antipoverty program administrators. The key to eliminating poverty is two things: (One) Stop encouraging more poverty by discouraging the breeding of more poor people. (Two) Stop the daily importation of more poor people. How could we possibly lessen the number of poor people if we continue to import more every day? If the U.S. government would do those two things poverty would decline within a generation. But then people like Christina Arrostuto and Obama would have to find some real jobs.
