Words for Thought

"If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape with tribute."

-Thomas Paine
1791 from "Rights of Man"

Mr. Paine was a smart man, wasn't he? What he wrote 218 years ago still applies today. I don't think much more needs to be said.

Call your US Representative and beg them to vote no on today's "Climate" or "Cap and Trade" Bill. It is vital! This government is already into "every corner and crevice" of our industry and our lives!! You can find your representatives on

God Bless America!

I did not watch all of this because I cannot stand Carlin's mouth!

What I did see though sickened me! I wholeheartedly believe that God does care about this country, as well as others! Though many, and I do mean many, have forgotten this, our country was founded on God, on our belief in Him, and on His laws!

I also believe that so many of our current problems and the 'downhill' turning of our country, is because so many people have turned their backs on God and forgotten that they need to keep their eyes on Him!

So, when I say 'God Bless America', I am asking Him to, and meaning it!!! If we do not return to Him both as individuals and as a country, we will continue to fall and things will be no better!!!

Return to Him today, America!
