Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  For Christmas, I wanted to share "Silent Night" with you in German.  For most, if not all of my family, it was our native tongue before we came to America.  Enjoy, you know the tune!

<> <> <> <>

Music: Franz Xaver Gruber, 1818
Words: Joseph Mohr, 1816/1818

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Halleluja,
Tönt es laut von fern und nah:
Christ, der Retter ist da!
Christ, der Retter ist da!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'.
Christ, in deiner Geburt!
Christ, in deiner Geburt!

Heute singt man nur die Strophen 1, 6 und 2 (oben) von der originellen Joseph-Mohr-Version (1816).

Music: Franz Xaver Gruber, 1818
Words: John Freeman Young, 1863

Silent night, holy night
All is calm all is bright
'Round yon virgin Mother and Child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia;
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Today only verses 1, 6 and 2 (above) from the original Joseph Mohr version (1816) are sung.

He Speaks

Well, he's going to speak again.  He'll have nothing to say.  He never does.  He just gets on tv everyday because it's all about me,me, me with him.  I can't even watch him anymore because he just lies. He talks and talks from his dear telepromters, then if he's asked a question, he blabs for several minutes never answering the questions because he doesn't know the answer!

Now is the time to move! Now is the time to take our country back.  He's down and we need to keep him down and get on the ball to get our rights back.  Repeal the healthcare bill, keep the tax hikes, but dump the unemployment extensions and keep the don't ask, don't tell.  Get with it.  Speak up people. Write to your representatives and senators and then get out in the streets and march! Demand the we have the country back that our Founding Fathers intended for us to have.

2011 will be the year.  If we don't do it then, we'll lose our country forever and we are close to that now. Think about this during the Christmas season.  Remember that Christ came to earth and died to save us all from our sin.  Now it's our turn to save our country.  Get off the couch and do it.  I expect to see people in the streets protesting after the new year.  Reclaim your country.  Get the Pledge back into the classrooms; make it ok to pray at Graduations; all these little liberties we have let go, we need to get back, not just the big ones.  Prepare yourself to do it!

God Bless America!


We had a 'winter storm' last night.  About 4-5 inches of snow and about 1/4 inch of ice on top of that.  It's a little bit of a mess; you could ice skate on the street!  But I still say, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. But they can leave the ice out of it.

Christmas Time!!!

Well, 'it's beginning to look like Christmas' as the song goes. It has certainly gotten cold and tonight/tomorrow we are under a Winter Weather Advisor until 7pm tomorrow night. I love it! I love the Christmas time of year! So, I will leave a few winter/Christmas songs.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Today will be a non-political day (unless something really huge happens).

I wanted to take this time to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you out there! May you enjoy your fellowship and time with your family. I also want to give a special thanks to our troops who are serving us and keeping us safe, whether here in the USA or somewhere else in the world.

Pray for our nation as we struggle to find our way. To return it to the way it is supposed to be; the way our Founding Fathers meant it to be.

God Bless All of You and God Bless America!

Now, this has got to top the cake so to speak. Now the Mosque or whatever it is supposed to be that is being built close to ground zero, now they are asking for FEDERAL GRANTS to help build it???? Can you believe this?? It's bad enough that they are building it where they are, but then to have the nerve to ask for Federal Grants!!!

If this were any other religion/church, Obama and his cronies would turn this down flat! But since it's Muslims, and we don't want to offend them, heaven help us, they (Obama administration) is actually probably considering it!! I believe that if this group is given Federal Grants to build their building, then any/and all churches should be given Federal Grant money when it is requested for building purposes!!

I am so tired of all of this. Obama is certainly NOT doing his job. He's out travelling (wasting our money), or playing basketball or golfing. Does anyone know how many days he has actually spent in the Oval office doing his job? It would be curious to know.

As I will continue to say: STAND UP PEOPLE and TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK. If you don't do it now, it will be too late, and that day is fast approaching!!!

Arms Deal

So, now we hear that Obama, without informing the public of America and over concerns of those in Congress, has made a $60 Billion deal to sell arms to Saudi Arabia!!! What is he (Obama) thinking? Does he not remember that most if not all of the 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia.

Plus, they have us over a barrel, literally, because Obama won't allow any drilling for our own oil here in our own country. We have tons of it, use it! Quit buying it from people who can jerk you around like this on the price of oil which sets the price for gas. For pete's sake!

If you wanna check out the arms deal, go to

Have fun! Stand up people! Obama is destroying this country! WAKE UP!

NYC Terrorist Trial

I am so angry and frustrated that I cannot begin to put it into words! First of all, to try this man (who was on trial for the Embassy bombings in Africa several years ago), in a civilian court and give him the rights that a citizen has in court, come on now! That's just plain stupid. He should have been tried at a Military Tribunal.

But wait....

What tops it off is that he is only found guilty on 1 count, conspiracy!! Can you believe this? He was charged with 200 some murders and other charges and that's all they convict him on?!?!?! Where are these peoples' (the jury) minds??? What if they had found him not guilty on all counts? Would they just let him walk free, free to continue to participate in his terrorist activities? Whose fault would that be?

This is an embarrassment to our country. It's also an embarrassment to this administration (not that I think they are worth 2 cents). I believe Eric Holder should resign his position as AG and that all future trials with any kind of terrorist should be Military Tribunals!!

I am sick of this administration and their Socialist/Marxist ways. They have broken so many parts of the Constitution (and Obama supposed to be a Constitutional lawyer!), it's destroying our country! They need to go! The whole administration, and take Pelosi and Reed with them.

It's makes me feel embarrassed as an American citizen.

End of the Day

It's about 1040pm and I am tired. I like the "fall back" thing, but for some reason my body is having a hard time with it this year. Springing forward is just awful.

Anyhow, it's been a good day. It's cold outside though (wishing I had a fireplace) and supposed to be colder tomorrow. Brrrr. Wishin' I was someplace warm.

Talk to ya'll later.....

Leave with ya one of my favorite Kenny Chesney songs, "Old Blue Chair" and wishin' I was there.


If Republicans Are Serious About Budget Cutting....

If Republicans Are Serious About Budget Cutting...
By Mark Alexander · Thursday, November 18, 2010

Start by identifying expenditures and taxes which are not expressly authorized by our Constitution, and schedule them for termination
"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." --James Madison
With a new Republican House majority on the way, the first real test of whether they will part ways with old spending habits met with a mixed response.

House Republicans lined up behind John Boehner, the speaker-elect of the House for the 112th Congress, and House Majority Leader-elect Eric Cantor, pledging overwhelming support for a measure to eliminate earmarks -- those small (merely $15.9 billion) and unrelated special-interest add-ons attached to spending bills. However, as the gateway drug to bribing and cajoling our elected representatives, earmarks have become fodder for an insidious wink-and-nod spending mentality that has corrupted our legislative process.

Apparently, even most moderate Republicans in the People's House received the memo from the midterm election. They seem to understand that there's a Great Awakening of conservatives outside the Beltway -- conservatives who are going to hold them to their oaths to abide by the plain language of our Constitution and the Rule of Law it enshrines.

However, over in the House of Lords, (a.k.a. the Senate), where members are less accountable to their constituents because they only stand for re-election every six years, some Republicans were a little fuzzy on the midterm message and failed to hear the objections to earmarks.

Chief among them was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who, as you recall, supported like-minded establishment Republican, Trey Grayson, over Kentucky's Tea Party favorite and now Senator-elect Rand Paul. McConnell, who swindled taxpayers out of $113 million for his own pet earmarks in 2009 alone, has been slow to embrace the fact that there's a new constitutional posse on the way to town. That posse will not kowtow to the old-boy Republicans who turned their back on the great conservative revolution launched by Ronald Reagan some three decades ago.

Senate Tea Party linebackers Jim DeMint (R-SC) and Tom Coburn (R-OK), with a little assist from the Johns (Cornyn, Ensign and Barrasso) impressed upon McConnell the error of his ways (and perhaps even the error of the era of his ways), and McConnell finally reversed his position. He now supports a ban on earmarks.

Keep in mind, however, that the Senate vote was only a non-binding committee resolution and a secret vote to conceal the bad guys.

"What I've concluded is that on the issue of congressional earmarks," McConnell now says, "as the leader of my party in the Senate, I have to lead first by example. Nearly every day that the Senate's been in session for the past two years, I have come down to this spot and said that Democrats are ignoring the wishes of the American people. When it comes to earmarks, I won't be guilty of the same thing."

Welcome to the party, however late, Senator McConnell. Now what about "when it comes to" other budget cuts?

Republicans top the listUnquestionably, the most nescient remarks about earmarks came from Sen. Lamar Alexander. (In case you've never heard of him, he's a two-timing, er, two-term "Republican" from my home state of Tennessee.)

Alexander said that the earmark moratorium was just "a timeout" in order to "permit Congress to limit the number of earmarks." He then appended his remarks with this stupefying addendum: "Cleaning up earmarks ... would undermine the Constitution."

Well, since he was kind enough to bring it up, I suggest that if the next Congress is serious about budget reform, it should consider this novel question: What does our Constitution actually authorize the central government to tax and spend?

Now, don't expect Republicans to open up that can of worms with unanimity, but the question will be asked, and now with greater frequency and conviction than since Madison's celebrated objection to unauthorized spending back when it first reared its head in 1794: "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."

Roger Pilon, director of Cato's Center for Constitutional Studies, aptly sums up the problem: "Over the 20th century, the federal government has assumed a vast and unprecedented set of powers. Not only has the exercise of those powers upset the balance between federal and state governments; run roughshod over individuals, families, and firms; and reduced economic opportunity for all; but most of what the federal government does today -- to put the point as plainly and candidly as possible -- is illegitimate because it is done without explicit constitutional authority. The time has come to start returning power to the states and the people, to re-limit federal power in our fundamental law, to restore constitutional government."

My colleagues Ed Feulner and Brian Riedl at the Heritage Foundation have laid out some clear budget-cutting objectives for the next Congress. Feulner has published a Checklist for Congress, and Riedl has outlined more than $343 billion in cuts for the fiscal 2012 budget.

As for "leadership" on the Left, apparently Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will still be piping the Demos down the road to demise for the next couple years, so the opportunity for Republicans to contrast fiscally conservative measures with those of the Socialist Bourgeoisie on the Left has never been greater.

Article VI of our Constitution reads, in part, "This constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof ... shall be the supreme Law of the Land." It continues, "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution."

For the record, "bound by Oath" means obligated to uphold the Rule of Law established by our Constitution, not the adulterated remnants of that noble document under the aegis of the "living constitution." Indeed, it is that adulterated version which generations of legislators have relied upon for their extra-constitutional taxes and spending, just as judges have done for their extra-constitutional diktats.

Madison once observed that the first American Revolution had its origin on "a minute tax of 3 pence on tea." Hopefully, no shots will need to be fired in a second revolution, but make no mistake: The second Tea Party is well under way.

: [The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.US)]

I could not agree more. We have got to stop tacking these earmarks onto bills, especially at the last minute. It is costing us a fortune! Our Representatives and Senators are up on the Hill to do a job and it's not to see how much "pork" they can stuff into a bill for their own gain! STOP THE PORK!

Does anyone out there know how to actually contact the RNC and lobby for Michael Steele to be booted out and someone that has more leadership brought in as chairman? If so, could you please let me know? I want to know so I can express my opinion to the RNC personally on my feelings towards Michael Steele.

Ok, let me know, anyone, if you have that information. Thanks a bunch!

Good night!

RNC Chairman

Michael Steele has to go! He hasn't done anything but damage our party. He's been more concerned with himself and the book or books he is writing. There has been no leadership in our party since he stepped into office.

The only reason the Republicans did so well in the recent elections is because a lot of them were part of the Tea Party. They need to embrace them and us conservatives that are in the Republican party. You have left us in the dust. If you, as a party, do not start including us, then those just voted in, will be voted out in 2012 (House, at least). I attribute all of this to the non-leadership of Michael Steele.

We need someone who is more conservative as the RNC Chairman. Now, this person should be able to work with the middle, more moderate, part of the party, however, the conservatives need to be heard as well or we will end up leaving the party and joining the Tea Party. Then there will be a true 3 party election in 2012.

It's up to you, those of that are on the Republican National Committee, to chose the right person for the Chairman's job.....and it is not Michael Steele.

Republicans and Conservatives

The Republicans have really got to stop whining about 'if the tea party hadn't run here or there, we would have won that seat' stuff. I swear, they sound like they are in high school!

I am a registered Republican, but my own party is starting to really tick me off. They have moved more and more to the middle (moderate) and left us conservatives out; how do you think the Tea Party came about? Most of us conservatives are sick and tired of the Republican party ignoring us or leaving us out.

The Republicans need to start a) doing their job or they will be out of office in 2012 and b) start listening to us Conservatives or there will be a third party for good! And Michael Steele, chairman of the RNC, has to go!!!! He's part of the problem also.

So, Republicans, stop complaining about the Conservatives or Tea Partiers, listen to them, work with them or our party will split, I can almost promise you that!!!

I guess that's all I have to say. Republicans need to grow up and get down to business, fire Michael Steele, and most importantly, listen to us Conservatives!! We, after all, used to be your base and you will lose us if you do not pay attention to us!!!

The Foundation
"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves." --Thomas Jefferson

Government & Politics

What to Watch For Tuesday

Harry Reid is sweating TuesdayAs Tuesday's mid-term elections near, Democrats are facing historic losses in Congress. Granted, this isn't because voters love the GOP -- far from it. It's because Democrats have done an even more abysmal job of governing than Republicans did. Here are a few races to watch.

Nevada: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trailing in most polls to Sharron Angle, who came out of nowhere to win the GOP primary thanks to backing by the Tea Party. Despite having a massive campaign war chest in a state that Barack Obama won by 12 points just two years ago, Reid could very well join Tom Daschle as Democrat leaders who lost re-election.

Illinois: Obama may be in for particular embarrassment in his home state, as GOP Congressman Mark Kirk leads Democrat Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias for Obama's former Senate seat. Normally, Illinois would be in the "safe" column for Democrats -- not this year.

Delaware: Can Christine O'Donnell pull off the upset against Democrat Chris Coons to take Joe Biden's former Senate seat? It's not likely, as she trails by double digits in the polls. However, the Leftmedia have taken a particular interest in taking out O'Donnell, which makes us wonder if this race is closer than it seems.

Alaska: Incumbent Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has mounted a surprisingly successful write-in campaign after losing the primary to Tea Party-backed attorney and Army vet Joe Miller. If voters can remember how to spell her name, she has a chance to become the first winning write-in candidate since Strom Thurmond (R-SC) in 1954.

Democrat Senate incumbents are likely to lose in Arkansas and Wisconsin, and Democrats are certain to lose seats that retiring senators Evan Bayh and Byron Dorgan are vacating in Indiana and North Dakota, respectively. In Pennsylvania, Democrat Joe Sestak is trailing conservative Republican Pat Toomey, and in West Virginia, popular Democrat Gov. Joe Manchin is neck-and-neck with businessman John Raese in his bid to assume the late Robert Byrd's seat. Manchin is campaigning hard against Obama, who is deeply unpopular there.

Two late-concluding Senate races that bear watching are in California and Washington. If Republican Carly Fiorina can knock off the loathsome Barbara Boxer in the Golden State, and if Dino Rossi can eke out a win against Patty Murray in Washington, Republicans may well pull off the 10-seat swing they need to take control of the Senate.

In the House, Democrat prospects look even worse. Multiple committee chairmen are sweating it out, including Jim Oberstar of Minnesota, Ike Skelton of Missouri and John Spratt of South Carolina. Even Barney Frank, chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, is in trouble in Massachusetts. Republican Sean Bielat, a Marine and businessman, is charging hard, and Frank is stuck below 50 percent in the polls, which is dangerous territory for a long-time incumbent. Michigan's 85-year-old John Dingell, who's been in Congress since 1955 and is the longest-serving member in that body's history, is also in a tight race against Dr. Rob Steele, a fiscally conservative cardiologist bent on repealing ObamaCare.

Veteran political guru Charlie Cook says of the number of seats Democrats will lose, "To be honest, I think the odds are higher that it's over 60 than under 40." Republicans need to take 39 net seats to gain control of the House. Cook declared that he'll be "sacking groceries" if that doesn't happen. Across the nation, the electorate is riled up. According to Rasmussen, "65% of Likely U.S. Voters say if they had the option next week, they would vote to get rid of the entire Congress and start all over again." Sounds good to us.

Perhaps Michelle Obama summed it up best: "This year's elections are just too important to sit out. There's so much at stake right now for our future and for our children's future."

Fellow Patriots, this is a critical election, the first of many battles in our fight to restore Essential Liberty and the Rule of Law. Be sure to bring a few like-minded friends to the polls with you.

"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere."

–Thomas Jefferson, letter to Abigail Adams, 1787

[The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.US)].


This quote is so true. I think its time for a little rebellion against the government. We don't want them taking us to death, telling us what to eat or drink, telling us what health insurance to have, what Church to go to (if we are allowed to go to Church), or even invade or bedrooms!

It's time for it to stop. So, let's have some rebellion, after all, WE are their bosses, not the other way around.

With Friends Like These...Who Needs Enemies??

The Demo-gogues

Obama gives voters a lectureWith friends like these... "People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up. ... If people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place. ... It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election. ... The idea that we've got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible." --Barack Obama hammering his own base in an interview with Rolling Stone

"[I want to] remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This president has done an incredible job. He's kept his promises." --Joe Biden on the same talking points

"And so those who don't get -- didn't get everything they wanted, it's time to just buck up here, understand that we can make things better, continue to move forward and -- but not yield the playing field to those folks who are against everything that we stand for in terms of the initiatives we put forward." --Joe Biden

"We have an electorate that doesn't always pay that much attention to what's going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what's happening." --Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), another snotty elitist lecturing voters

The GOP's best friend: "[I]f we allow this to be a referendum on whether people are happy where they are now, we'll lose." --Joe Biden

But on the other hand: "I guarantee you we're going to have a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate. I absolutely believe that." --Biden

Patronizing: "There are strains in the Tea Party that are troubled by what they saw as a series of instances in which the middle-class and working-class people have been abused or hurt by special interests and Washington, but their anger is misdirected." --Barack Obama

"[Fox News has] a point of view that I disagree with. It's a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world." --Obama in the Rolling Stone interview

On fiscal responsibility: "What I'm seeing out of the Republican leadership over the last several years has been a set of policies that are just irresponsible, and we saw in their Pledge to America a similar set of irresponsible policies. ... [Although GOP leaders] say they want to balance the budget, they propose $4 trillion worth of tax cuts and $16 billion in spending cuts, and then they say we're going to somehow magically balance the budget. That's not a serious approach." --Barack Obama, who must consider Republicans amateurs when it comes to blowing money

: [The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.US)].


Go ahead and keep that up Obama, Biden and Kerry! That's exactly the way to win votes, by insulting your voters!!!!! ;~)

The Difference Between Bush 2 and Obama

Just to compare!! This is how the soldiers feel. How Marines welcome a President. It seems the US Marines know something that many of the civilian population do not ...
Take 2 minutes to watch this comparison between George Bush's visit to the Marines vs Obama's recent trip. It is incredible.

YouTube. Obama's people are working hard to get it removed.

Leaving Out God

Leaving Out God
By Ken Blackwell (Archive) · Wednesday, September 22, 2010

It was certainly reassuring to see the president and first lady coming out of St. John's Episcopal Church last Sunday. With all the confusion about the president's religion, we can be sure that the very liberal historic parish will provide a warm welcome to the first family. And they're unlikely to hear anything as unsettling as "God d____ America" coming from St. John's elegantly carved pulpit.

Folk wisdom tells us there are no atheists in foxholes. President Obama has surely been feeling like a combat soldier in recent weeks. With all the heavy criticisms raining down on him like incoming mortar shells, and with his own team members seeming to run away from him on the political battlefield, the president needs all the prayers he can get. Cynics might say that this is another battlefield conversion, that Obama never felt the need for such fellowship when he was above 70 percent approval in the polls. In those halcyon days, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas was hailing Obama as "a sort of God." No more.

But just when you thought it was safe for the president to slip back into the pew, he started a whole new round of speculation about what he really believes. While addressing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus last week, Obama began to recite key passages of the Declaration of Independence and slipped up. Or did he?

He enumerated the "certain inalienable rights" part beautifully. He even listed the right to life. (Hmmm. How does that comport with an Obamacare law that if unrepealed would subsidize abortion and thus deny the right to life to millions yet unborn? Well, Barack Obama is hardly the only liberal who manages to declare such pesky questions "above my pay grade.") The trouble came when Obama omitted who endowed the people with these inalienable rights, "their Creator."

The White House is trying to tamp down any controversy: The president was merely paraphrasing. "Don't try to read anything into this" is the administration line.

But it does matter. The Weekly Standard's Jeffrey Anderson certainly thinks so:

"Only two plausible explanations spring to mind. One is that President Obama isn't very familiar with the most famous passage in the document that founded this nation; that even when plainly reading from a teleprompter, he wasn't able to quote it correctly. The other is that President Obama doesn't subscribe to the Declaration's rather central claim that our rights come from our 'Creator' (also referred to in the Declaration as 'Nature's God' and 'the Supreme Judge of the World').

"Only the president likely knows for certain which of these two explanations is true, or whether perhaps there is another. His nearly 4-second pause before he omits reference to our Creator, however, is peculiar. He stares at the teleprompter, purses his lips, blinks several times — as if confused, disturbed, and/or in the process of making a decision — and then proceeds to use his alternate wording [see the clip here starting at the 22:30 mark]."

Anderson had earlier reported on the present administration's apparent discomfort with the Declaration of Independence. In its groveling and apologetic report to the UN Human Rights Council—a body graced by such respecters of the rights of humans as China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba—the Obama administration managed to omit any reference to the world's greatest document on human rights: our own Declaration.

President Obama is not the only liberal to have such problems acknowledging the Creator. Take for example a nice new publication from the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS)—a Federalist Society for liberals that might be viewed as an incubator for the Obama Justice Department or even for Obama nominees to the federal courts.

Princeton Professor Robby George noted in First Things that he recently picked up a handy little pamphlet published by ACS with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and—most welcome—Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. But when he carefully scanned Lincoln's immortal words as delivered on that hallowed ground, Professor George noted they had left out two: "under God."

How bold! Surely the liberals at ACS know that Lincoln's words are carved into stone at the memorial that bears his name. Surely some of them have been to the National Cemetery at Gettysburg and seen the speech text, also engraved in stone.

We are left to conclude that for the liberal left, our rights do not come from God. They come, instead, from government pronouncements, from UN documents, or from the courts. This is a most disturbing conclusion. And it goes to the heart of who we are as a people.

[The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.US)].


When will we will as Christians stand up, not only for ourselves, but for our country?? When will YOU act? Will you wait until you're told which Church to go to?? Will you wait until you cannot go to Church at all? Will you wait until they ban Bibles?? The time to act is NOW!

It has been 9 years since we were viciously attacked in NYC, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

It seems that the further away we get from the actual day, the more people are "forgetting" or using it as a day to cook-out or whatever. It is such a shame. And Mr. O's administration wants it to be a day of volunteerism?? Huh? He doesn't even acknowledge what today is all about. The families remember; those who worked at Ground Zero remember, it goes on and on.

So, I say shame on those who have forgotten what this day is all about. Shame on you for forgetting all the people who died that day; for forgetting those who helped save people that day; and those who worked at ground zero, whom are now getting sick from all the junk they had to breath in working there.

Let us remember all of those who died that day. Remember those workers who worked at Ground Zero and are now becoming ill. Remember the families of both sets of those named.

I personally want to say 'Thank You' and God Bless to those who were on Flight 93 and their families. That plane flew over my house twice and could have come down at anytime during that period. However, those passengers decided to do something and brought that plane down in a field in Pennsylvania where no one else was killed. Thank you all so very much and God be with each and every one of you and your families.

Make your voice heard! NO MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO!!! It's a slap in the face to all of us but especially to those who lost loved ones on 9/11. Write everyone you can think of in the Federal, State (New York) and Local (New York City) to prevent this from happening!

It must be stopped!

A Sad Goodbye

Today, we bid a sad farewell to Mr. George Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees. He died of a massive heart attack at his home in Tampa, Florida, according to news reports.

Ironically, he got his start in football. Being apart of coaching teams at Ohio State, Northwestern and Purdue, if I am not mistaken. He made his fortune in shipbuilding and bought the Yankees in 1973.

Of course, all of us Yankee fans remember his love/hate relationship with Billy Martin (we still miss you, Billy), whom he hired and fired I believe 5 times! It almost got to be comical.

Tonight is the Major League Baseball Allstar game, and I am sure they will do something to honor him, as will the Yankees win the return to home play after the break.

We will miss you, Boss. And we always loved you.

This Yankee fan.

Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met here on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But in a larger sense we can not dedicate - we can not consecrate - we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled, here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here.

It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.


I think this is one of the greatest speeches ever made. The part we need to remember as a country is "that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

We are losing that government right in front of our eyes and if we don't stand up and fight, it will perish from the earth! FIGHT AMERICA! FIGHT!

Supreme Court Upholds Second Amendment Rights

Supreme Court Upholds Second Amendment Rights
Monday, June 28, 2010

The United States Supreme Court issued a 5-4 ruling today that the Second Amendment does, in fact, mean what it says -- even in Chicago -- and guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. The case at hand was McDonald v. City of Chicago, in which the plaintiff sought to overturn Chicago's blanket ban on handguns.

The Amendment reads, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Chicago ban clearly infringed on that right.

That didn't stop the Chicago Tribune from spinning in its headline, "Supreme Court extends gun rights." The Tribune lamented that the Court's decision had "extended the reach of the 2nd Amendment as a nationwide protection." Such language, of course, suggests that the Court invented the right out of thin air -- sort of like abortion on demand. Unlike abortion, however, the right to keep and bear arms is actually written down in the Constitution, in plain view for all to see.

Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation summed up the case:

In 2008 in District of Columbia v. Heller, the Court for the first time held that the right to bear arms was an individual right. But that decision, which struck down a virtual ban on handguns and a requirement that rifles and shotguns had to be kept "unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock" in the District of Columbia, applied only to the federal government because the District is a federal enclave. What had never been decided before today's decision in McDonald v. Chicago was whether the protection of the Second Amendment is incorporated through the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause to apply to state and local governments.

The Associated Press reports, "Monday's decision did not explicitly strike down the Chicago area laws, ordering a federal appeals court to reconsider its ruling. But it left little doubt that they would eventually fall."

Predictably, the split was along ideological lines. Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Sam Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas were in the majority; Steven Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and John Paul Stevens, who served his last day on the court Monday, dissented.

Writing for the majority, Justice Alito observed, "It is clear that the Framers and ratifiers of the Fourteenth Amendment counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty." Alito also wrote, "The Fourteenth Amendment makes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms fully applicable to the States."

Justice Thomas, in a separate opinion, argued a different constitutional rationale, saying, "[The] Due Process Clause, which speaks only to 'process,' cannot impose the type of substantive restraint on state legislation that the Court asserts. Rather, the right to keep and bear arms is enforceable against the States because it is a privilege of American citizenship recognized by §1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, which provides, inter alia: 'No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.'"

Out in left field, Justice Breyer displayed his bullheaded ignorance, writing, "[N]othing in 18th-, 19th-, 20th-, or 21st-century history shows a consensus that the right to private armed self-defense ... is 'deeply rooted in this nation's history or tradition' or is otherwise 'fundamental.'" Justice Stevens dissented separately, and suddenly became a proponent of federalism: "[T]his is a quintessential area in which federalism ought to be allowed to flourish without this court's meddling." Where was this fair-weather federalist with any number of other heavy handed rulings that took away states' rights?

As for Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Barack Obama's nominee to replace Stevens on the Court, she pleaded the Fifth. In a monumental case involving the Bill of Rights, she chose not to file so much as a brief in the case. In the past, however, she stated that she was "not sympathetic" to a District resident with a complaint similar to that eventually upheld by the Court in District of Columbia v. Heller. Put another way, Kagan is hostile to the Second Amendment.

The courts likely will now face numerous cases on other state and local gun restrictions. The Supreme Court ruled that gun ownership is an individual right, but it left open many questions regarding who, what and where. This is yet another way in which elections have consequences. For at least two and a half more years, an anti-gun leftist occupies the White House and wields the power to nominate like-minded individuals to the courts.
[The Patriot Post (PatriotPost.US)]


So what do ya'll think about the Supreme Court deciding its okay for us to 'bear arms', although we are already guaranteed this right in the US Constitution?? Huh?? Who gives them the right? And why do they need to do it? I will say, if it comes to a point where they decided its not okay for us to 'bear arms', they are going to have a fight on their hands; a legal fight. It's in the Constitution for petes sake!!! How can you change the Constitution on a whim??


I am so sick of this administration and their doing what they want and think they can do. It's possible that the Administration has committed two felonies but has anyone heard anything about it? No. Will they get punished for it? No. They should all be thrown out of office. ALL OF THEM. It's time to take our country back people. WAKE UP. If you don't you'll be living in communist America and it won't be pretty.

Surprise at Tea Party Rally


Now, how many of you have ever heard this second verse? I know I haven't. I think it needs and should be sung along with the first verse, which everyone is aware of, all the time, especially now.

Our country is in dire trouble and if we don't start standing up and speaking up, we are going to lose our freedoms and liberties. We need to get this country back to what the Founding Fathers intended it to be.

Let me hear your thoughts on this second verse of the Star Spangled Banner and what it means to you!

God Bless American now more than ever!!

Obituary of Helen Thomas "Reporter"

This is the obituary of Helen Thomas, former White House "reporter", and I use that term very loosely. She is finally out of her job at the White House. Her big mouth has been sitting there, front and center, for years, using language that no one else would use.

And finally in the past few days we see the true Helen Thomas. The anti-Semite. The Jew hater. She probably loved Hitler when WWII was happening. She supposedly apologized, but I think it was just a token apology. She apologized because she "had" to and did not mean a word of it, in my opinion.

I honestly don't know how she managed to stay in the White House as a "reporter" for so long as it was. She was nothing but a nuisance and never had anything of substance to say or ask, in my opinion.

I am glad to see her go, especially since she showed her true colors. I don't understand why all of a sudden everyone, including the Obama administration, is bashing Jews and Israel. I thought the Benjamin Netanyahu's speech the other day was right on target and kicked butt. We need to stand with Israel and support them. Remember, when the Lord comes back, that's where it all will go down.

So, Helen Thomas: Goodbye, Adieu, Arrivederci, Farewell, Donadagohi, Sayonara, Auf Wiedersehen, Adios, Paalam, Dag, Yasaou, Ha det bra, Slan leat, and Shalom. We won't miss you!

A Congressman, A Former President and an Intern Walk Into a Bar.....

The Foundation
"Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation." --James Madison

Government & Politics

A Congressman, a Former President and an Intern Walk Into a Bar...

SestakThe plot thickens over the job offer to sitting Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA), and it may be only a matter of time before "Sestak-gate" enters the political corruption lexicon. Late last Friday, as the news cycle wound down going into the holiday weekend, the White House issued a memo declaring that its internal investigation of the alleged job offer to Sestak revealed no improprieties. This finding was certainly no surprise, but the administration's lame explanation raises more questions than it answers.

According to the official account, Bill Clinton approached Sestak in 2009 about accepting an uncompensated position on a presidential advisory board -- this in return for Sestak's commitment to refrain from challenging Sen. Arlen Specter (D-R-D-PA) in their state's Democrat Senate primary. Sestak promptly rejected the offer and went on to win the primary last month.

There are several problems with this story, however, not the least of which is that it differs significantly from Sestak's. When Sestak first stated publicly in February that the administration had tried to get him out of the Senate primary, he claimed that he had been offered a "high-ranking job" -- not an unpaid position on an obscure presidential advisory board. Furthermore, the only board for which Sestak might qualify is the Intelligence Advisory Board, but because he's a sitting member of Congress, he cannot lawfully take part. For the administration's explanation to hold water, we would have to believe that Joe Sestak would give up a Senate run and a current House seat to take a role on an advisory board that offers no pay, no political clout and virtually no future career opportunities. Or at least none compared to being a former congressman or senator. Sestak, a liberal Democrat and retired Navy vice-admiral, has built his campaign around issues of trust and integrity; needless to say, this episode certainly could tarnish his race in the fall.

ClintonNor will the White House escape the matter by bringing in scandal magnet Bill Clinton. It's suspected that Clinton's involvement is supposed to somehow absolve the administration of any wrongdoing because it puts them at arm's length. That's not the case, however, as Clinton still appears to have acted as an agent of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who, in sending Clinton, just may have violated the Hatch Act. The Hatch Act states that no federal employee may exert pressure to participate or not participate in political activity.

In related news, Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina may soon be facing similar questions with regard to a job offer to Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff of Colorado. Romanoff's offer to drop his bid to challenge administration favorite Michael Bennet has resurfaced this week thanks to the Sestak affair.

RomanoffRomanoff was rather vocal about his desire for a federal job during the Obama transition. He also expressed interest in a Senate appointment, which went to Bennet instead, or a shot at the lieutenant governorship slot when that opened up. It was only after he came up short all around that Romanoff turned to a Senate challenge of Bennet. (Apparently, making an honest living in the private sector never occurred to him.) Romanoff filed his papers as a candidate on Sept. 10, 2009, and the next day he received a call from Messina, who offered three separate opportunities with the U.S. Agency for International Development or the U.S. Trade Development Agency. Romanoff claims that none of the positions were guaranteed, but they would be available only if he was not already a candidate.

Since Obama's first attempt to sweep this under the rug seems to have failed, it will be interesting to see what future memos and documents have to say about what transpired in the ham-fisted political machine, er, "most transparent administration in history." To paraphrase the great political sage Forrest Gump, transparency is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get.

Primary Day

Tomorrow is Primary Day here in Kentucky. I urge everyone to get out and vote. Especially Christians, I feel it is our duty to vote. We, as Christians, should be concerned with what is happening in our towns, states and country. It will eventually affect us. And the way things are going Federally now, it will affect us as Christians sooner than later.

So, get out and vote. I am not going to tell you whom to vote for, but vote. It is that important!

The Declaration of Independence

This is one of the times I think we needed to be reminded how we became America and what our Founding Fathers risked in doing so (starting this country). So, bare with me as I write this out.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the cause which impel them to the Separation.

WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great-Britain in History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the Accommodation of large Districts of People, unless those People would relinquish the Right of Representation in the Legislature, a Right inestimable to them, and formidable to Tyrants only.

He has called together Legislative Bodies at Places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant for the Depository of their public Records, for the sole Purpose of fatiguing them into Compliance with his Measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly Firmness his Invasions on the Rights of the People.

He has refused for a long Time, after such Dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the Dangers of Invasion from without, and Convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the Population of these States; for that Purpose obstructing the Laws of Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their Migrations hither, and raising Conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the Tenure of their Offices, and the Amount and Payment of their Salaries.

He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and out their Substance.

He has kept among us, in Times of Peace, Standing Armies, without consent of our Legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large Bodies of Armed Troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all Parts of the World:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us, in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for Pretended Offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an arbitrary Government and enlarging its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an Example and fit Instrument for introducing the same absolute Rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislated for us in all Cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our Seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our Towns, and destroyed the Lives of our People.

He is, at this Time, transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the Works of Death, Desolation and Tyranny already begun with cirumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous Ages, and totally unworthy of the Head of a civilized Nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their friends and Brethren, or tall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the Inhabitants of our Frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known Rule of Warfare, is an undistinguished Destruction of all Ages, Sexes and Conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People.

Nor have we been wanting in Attentions to our British Brethren. We have warned them from Time to Time of Attempts by their Legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the Circumstances of our Emigration and Settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and Magnanimity, we have conjured them by the Ties of our common Kindred to disavow these Usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our Connections and Correspondence. They too have been deaf to the Voice of Justice and of Consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the Necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of Mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace, Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly Publish and Declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right out to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES, that they are absolved from Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political Connection between them and the State of Great-Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which INDEPENDENT STATES may of right to do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.


This July 4th, this document will be 234 years old. There are parts of it that are not applicable today (the Great Britain stuff), but a lot of it does apply to today. We are in trouble in this Country and we need to do something about it, or we are going to lose the Country that our Founding Fathers risked their lives to start.

For a friend who does not believe in God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or hell.

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord', will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
"Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?"
"And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you: DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS'

-Matthew 7:21-23


Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.
And the sea gave up the dead which we in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.
Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

-Revelation 20:11-15


Chris Tomlin: Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone).


Will continue to pray for you and pray that one day you will come to truly know God and Jesus, that you will repent, ask for forgiveness, and ask Jesus into your heart, so that you will be saved and then you will go to heaven!

Today was my first day of PT. Will do the rest here at home. It was rough and will be rough. Need to get a special brace for my knee, so I will be off hunting that down tomorrow.

My friend's cat is missing and I feel so bad for him. I have been praying that the cat will turn up, but who knows. He's only been missing since this morning. Maybe he will be back tomorrow morning when its time to eat.

Guess thats all I have to say tonight. Not much really. Gotta find a song.

Mine ended bad, so I thought this song was appropriate. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Miss you friend.

Endowed by our Creator

Endowed by our Creator
By Mark Alexander · Thursday, May 6, 2010

"To the distinguished Character of Patriot, it should be our highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian. The signal Instances of providential Goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labours with complete Success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of Gratitude and Piety to the Supreme Author of all Good." --George Washington
Today is National Prayer Day.

In 1775, on the eve of Revolution, the First Continental Congress called for "a day of publick humiliation, fasting, and prayer."

Apparently, our Founders saw a national day of prayer as a fitting observance, not unlike the establishment of Thanksgiving, of which George Washington wrote in 1777, "Being the day set apart by the Honorable Congress for public Thanksgiving and Praise; and duty calling us devoutly to express our grateful acknowledgements to God for the manifold blessings he has granted us, the General ... earnestly exhorts, all officers and soldiers, whose absence is not indispensably necessary, to attend with reverence the solemnities of the day."

Other Founders continued the tradition.

John Adams declared May 9, 1798, as "a day of solemn humiliation, fasting, and prayer ... that our country may be protected from all the dangers which threaten it."

James Madison followed this tradition, but wrote, "I was always careful to make the Proclamations absolutely indiscriminate, and merely recommendatory; or rather mere designations of a day, on which all who thought proper might unite in consecrating it to religious purposes, according to their own faith & forms. In this sense, I presume you reserve to the Govt. a right to appoint particular days for religious worship throughout the State, without any penal sanction enforcing the worship."

Our Founders were greatly and rightly suspect of any encroachment by government upon religious freedom, and codified that proscription in Amendment I of our Bill of Rights: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

In other words, Congress may not mandate that a particular religion be nationalized, and others be prohibited.

Our Founders were not radical secularists. Far from it. One need only examine their many writings on the subject as evidence. But, rightly, they didn't want the United States to be wedded with a particular church, as was the case with England and the Anglican Church.

Thomas Jefferson, a vigilant though skeptical Anglican, made clear this prohibition in his obscure but maliciously misconstrued 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association. Far from calling for the coercive stripping of all religious influences from public life, Jefferson merely assured his Baptist constituents in Connecticut that their denominational practices were safe because our Constitution provided a "wall of separation" between church and state, which would prohibit the national government from recognizing Anglicanism as the national religion. (Notably, two days after writing that letter, Jefferson attended religious services in the House of Representatives.)

But as Madison wrote, our Constitution, the one he penned, does not bar the government from designating "particular days for religious worship throughout the State."

However, in the latter half of the 20th century, judicial activists (the "despotic branch") as Jefferson called them) have "interpreted" the First Amendment to suit their political agendas, placing evermore severe constraints upon the free exercise of religion while wholly misrepresenting the aforementioned "Wall of Separation" in a concerted effort to expel religious practice from any and all public forums.

They have done so by falsely putting forth a "living constitution," a revisionist document which has little resemblance to the authentic Constitution that once was our Republic's standard for Rule of Law.

As noted by former Chief Justice William Rehnquist, "The wall of separation between church and state is a metaphor based upon bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned. ... The greatest injury of the 'wall' notion is its mischievous diversion of judges from the actual intention of the drafters of the Bill of Rights."

The intended consequence of this artificial barrier between church and state is to remove the unmistakable influence of our Creator from all public forums, particularly government education institutions, and thus, over time, to disabuse belief in a sovereign God and the notion of natural rights. This erosion of knowledge about the origin of our rights, the very foundation of our country and basis of our Constitution, has dire implications for the future of our Essential Liberty.

In 1952, Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event by a joint resolution, signed into law by President Harry Truman. The NDP designation (36 U.S.C. § 119) calls for the nation "to turn to God in prayer and meditation."

Naturally, the Despotic Branch is challenging that resolution, asserting that religion and politics don't mix.

On April 15, 2010, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb (a 1979 Jimmy Carter nominee) ruled that the statute establishing the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional, as it is "an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function."

That ruling, of course, has no basis in our Constitution, but merely among those who have contorted its true meaning into a grotesque remnant of its original brilliance.

Perhaps Ms. Crabb, and all other jurists who are attempting to amend our Constitution by judicial diktat in full disregard for the constitutional prescription for amendment in Article 5, should pause and consider the faith of our Founders.

Perhaps they should look into the depth of faith that motivated the actions of Patriot Founders John Hancock, Roger Sherman, John Dickinson, Hugh Williamson, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Huntington, John Adams, William Williams, Robert Treat Paine, Rufus King, William Livingston, James Wilson, George Mason and Patrick Henry.

Here are but a few examples of how our Founders expressed their faith when in positions of authority.

Hancock called on his home state of Massachusetts to pray, "that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory."

According to John Adams: "The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. ... The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity. ... Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. ... What a Eutopia -- what a Paradise would this region be!"

Henry wrote, "The Bible ... is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed. ... The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible."

Samuel Adams called on Massachusetts to pray that, "we may with one heart and voice humbly implore His gracious and free pardon through Jesus Christ, supplicating His Divine aid ... [and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory."

Even those who were cautious about the public expressions of religion left evidence of their views on Christianity.

Jefferson wrote, "I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others. ... I am a real Christian -- that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."

Benjamin Franklin wrote, "As to Jesus of Nazareth ... I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see."

Beyond these many writings -- as if further proof were needed -- our Founders unequivocally enumerated the natural rights of all men in our Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..." These are natural rights -- gifts from God, not government.

Notably, the conviction that our rights are innately bestowed by "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," is enumerated in the constitution preamble of every state in our Union.

Thomas Jefferson proclaimed, "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time. ... Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever."

Prayer is Almighty God's prerequisite for true hope and change, and our nation needs an abundance of both right now. The Patriot Post's National Advisory Board and staff invite you to join us, and millions of our countrymen, in prayer for our nation today at 1200 local time.

One of My Favorite Songs

The Beatles: Something

Knee and Sunshine

I saw the ortho doc today. No surgery needed, thank goodness. I have a badly sprained MCL on the left knee. So, therapy, icing, anti-inflammatory meds, wrapping in ace bandage. It will take 3-4 months for it to fully heal, but that's still better than having to have surgery!

The sun was out today and boy it was beautiful! We had such a stormy, rainy, yucky weekend, the sun was wonderful to see. And it was so warm too. If I didn't have my knee wrapped up so that if would give me a funny tan, I would have been sitting out in the sun, working on my tan!

My brother made it to his destination okay. I am glad. He is supposed to be back on Thursday, which all of us will be happy about. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Guess that's it for now. Just a short note today. Hope everyone is doing well. Let me go find a song.

Good Day Sunshine: The Beatles

Sunday, May 2, 2010


It's 12 midnight and I am yet asleep. Usually I am asleep between 10-11pm. I don't know what my problem is tonight. I feel myself getting more tired, just not enough to go to sleep. I took some pain medicine earlier for a knee injury cause the knee was hurting pretty badly and then my other bedtime meds and yet here I sit, still awake.

Maybe it's because I am concerned about the weather headed this way tonight and especially tomorrow. I feel bad for the folks south of us (TN, ARK, etc) who have had major flooding and numerous tornadoes. God Bless them and may they get the help that they need.

I am seeing an ortho doc first thing Monday morning about the knee. It has been a pain (literally) in butt. I hope that we can start to find some answers on Monday. I have been dealing with this for 5 weeks and am tired of it.

The nephews are here tonight. They are growing so fast and yet are so darling and cute. I just love being around them and they always brighten my day, no matter how bad I am feeling or whatever. They are great boys and going to be tall!!

Been going to Victory Life Church here in town. I absolutely love it. I enjoy the praise and worship time and the pastor. I am always learning something new each service I attend, which is good. I am in my Bible more and praying more, which is good too. I feel myself growing spiritually even though I have been there just a short time. God Bless ya'll there at Victory Life.

Please pray for my brother. He has to leave very early in the morning to go on a trip for work (at least they get to fly this time) and will be gone all week till Thursday afternoon. Pray for his safety in travel and the work that they need to do, pray that it will all go smoothly. Pray for his family as he is gone. Keep them safe and secure and no major things happen. Just ask that God let them know that He is with each one of them watching over them safely and securely. Thanks.

I guess I had better go for now. Battery is running down and I've unplugged everything because of the storms coming. Catch ya'll later.

Good Night ( I hope) everyone. It's pouring the rain here again! Fun. Enjoy the music anyway.

Obama and His Socialists

OK, have we had enough yet America? When are we going to stand up and say, enough! Stop destroying our country and return it to the people!

First, it was the car companies. The government just had to take over them or they were never going to make it. Well, in a capitalist society, businesses fail sometimes. I will say this, I need to get a newer vehicle myself and I won't buy anything but a Ford. They didn't take any bailout money and are doing just fine. Support them all you can.

Secondly, it health care. Oh, we've got to take over health care because not enough people have insurance and its just going to cost us a fortune if we don't do something about it. Well, they've done something about it and guess what? It's going to us more than a fortune to "run" it. It's 1/6Th of our economy and the best way to destroy an economy, a country is from within. Hmm.

Now, they are going after Wall Street. They want to punish them for being successful and making too much money. Boohoo. Funny thing is, they, the Democrat Socialists, have been in bed with these people for a very long time. So, if Obama gets his way on this Wall Street business, there will be 3 major things that are no longer free enterprises; they will be owned by the government (of course Obama will say by the people, but don't believe that lie!)

So, Americans, when are you really going to stand up and fight and say ENOUGH! Now, I am not advocating violence here at all, but we can demonstrate much more, write letters, make phone calls, voting; there is so much we can do to get our country back.

And we Must! If we do not act now, we will wake up and it will be gone and then it will be harder to get back than most people think. Get up from in front of the TV, off the couch, and get moving! Take care of your country, or you will lose it!

I do want to say a word about the 20 states and growing, whose AG's have decided to sue the Obama administration over the health care bill/issue. I applaud them whole-heartedly! They are suing, challenging it's Constitutionality and I do believe it is Un-Constitutional. For a President who supposedly studied Constitutional Law, he sure doesn't know a lot about it, does he?

Pat Robertson: Idiot

I just have to say a few words about what Pat Robertson said the other day on his show about Haiti. The just of what he said is that because of a supposed deal with the devil in the 18th century, that this terrible earthquake was God's wrath for that. He also intimated something similar about the United States when 9/11 happened.

I have to say, what an idiot!!! It burns me up that he said this and that, sadly, there are people out there in the world that truly believe what he said. In other words, if you are living wrong, then things will go badly in your life; consequently, if you are living right, then things will go well.

If God truly worked like this, then where would any of us be? What if things are not going well in a Christian's life? And who made Robertson the judge on such things? I thought God was the judge.

Once again, Pat Robertson has said something so insanely stupid, that it makes all of us cringe. I, quite frankly, am ashamed that he has the media position that he has with his show. I am ashamed that he says he's part of the Christian community. He is making true believers look bad in the eyes of nonbelievers.

I hope that he loses his show soon, by some manner. Hmmm. Based on Robertson's thinking, maybe I should pray the he would lose his voice permanently and never be able to speak again.

In the meantime, Christians need to stand up and say, 'no, we do not believe this way.' Can God use a tragedy such as the Haiti earthquake to draw people closer to Him? Yes, He can. Do I believe that He caused the earthquake to punish the Haitians for their supposed past sins? No, I do not. We should all be cautious of such thinking. It is dangerous.

If By 'Transparent' You Mean 'Secret'...

If By 'Transparent' You Mean 'Secret'...

After much bribery and arm-twisting, the Senate managed just before Christmas to pass its version of ObamaCare by a 60-39 vote (amazingly, without a single GOP "aye"). Now, the bill heads for conference deliberation televised by C-SPAN, just as the cable channel offered and Barack Obama promised numerous times.

Or not.

Democrats let slip this week that there would be no typical conference committee on the competing House and Senate versions of the health bill, as "leaders" opted instead for private negotiations with "key" congressmen and senators, none of whom is Republican. Once an agreement is reached, each legislative chamber will vote again and send the unified bill to the president.

Without conference committee, a rule requiring public access to the conference report for at least 48 hours before a vote would conveniently not apply. That means even more liberty-stealing treachery can be slipped into the bill with little notice. Funny how the "public option" doesn't mean that the public gets to know what's in the bill.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) nevertheless had the gall to declare, "There has never been a more open process for any legislation in anyone who's served here's experience." In response, Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto mocked, "Has a most false or awkwardly worded statement ever come out of anyone who has served as speak of the House's mouth?"

In spite of Democrats' best efforts at "transparency," there are many extra-special things that we actually do know about the bill. For example, on page 1,020, the Senate bill states: "It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection." In other words, the bill creates an eternal law by prohibiting future elected Congresses from making changes to this subsection.

What's in the subsection in question? The infamous "death panel" -- the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB), who objective will be to "reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending" (read: to ration health care).

Meanwhile, the bill contains what amounts to a marriage penalty worth $2,000 or more in insurance premiums each year. The Wall Street Journal explains, "The disparity comes about in part because subsidies for purchasing health insurance under the plan from congressional Democrats are pegged to federal poverty guidelines. That has the effect of limiting the subsidies for married couples with a combined income, compared to if the individuals are single."

Finally, Obama signaled this week he's willing to break another campaign promise: The "no tax increases on the middle class" pledge. He threw his support behind the Senate's tax on higher end "Cadillac" insurance plans, something unions and House Democrats oppose.

The more the public learns about this continuing saga, the more vigorously opposed they become to "reform". No wonder Democrats want the process to remain secret.
