I despise the left wing liberal attempts to change America. I support FREEDOM, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, religious freedom and protecting the rights of Americans, including the unborn. Close the border, round up illegals and send them home. Welcome them back with a green card. I believe in preserving the visions of our founding fathers which did not include Socialism or Sharia Law.
This IS STILL America.....at least for now.
I find it totally alarming that Obama supports the ousted President of Honduras. The people in that country acted according to THEIR constitution when Zelaya tried to remove term limits so that he could run again. Their constitution said that he was not even allowed to try to remove term limits...so they ousted him according to their own law. They were, as I see it, well within their rights?
Zelaya is supported by the warm and fuzzy Hugo Chavez. Which is a clear sign that a dictatorship was in the Hondurans future. Obama suspended over 30 million in aid to that country and has all but reinstated Zelaya to power. Who the hell does Barack Obama think he is?
WHY would Obama support his return to the Presidency when he was legally ousted according to the laws of that country? Has he no respect for their constitution, their people or their freedom? Of course not! He certainly has none for our own country. It is clear as can be. Obama is not a supporter of free people. WE have just yet to see it here in our country....well most of us anyway.
The thing that bothers me....is that he is our President now and people are not seeing the red flags here. What will it take to wake up the American people.
I beg you, Honduras' interim President Roberto Micheletti, DO NOT AGREE TO IT. You have the support of the American people.....you do not need the support of Obama and Chavez. Freedom will outlive this presidential administration, come hell or high water.
Whether you are liberal or conservative..this should anger you. After serving 70 days with the only communication with the Commander in Chief ONE TIME, General McChrystal's request for more troops went public.....ummm.....errr......TWO MONTHS ago. As of this moment, he has received no answer to his request.
Of all the troop deaths in Afghanistan since the war started...ONE THIRD have occured during your short time as Commander in Chief.
Obama,these are our husbands, wives, sons and daughters dying while you do not a damn thing. I personally think it has to do with the elections coming in a few days. You care more about your damned domestic agenda than our troops dying. Hey....do you get a Nobel Peace Prize for that?
Obama, as my Grandmother used to put it so eloquently....SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT! Either send the troops they need or bring them all home.
I got news for you, I am damned angry and I am not alone. This is such an outrage. I do not even have family there...and I am ANGRY. DO YOU HEAR ME? I AM ANGRY AND I AM NOT ALONE. I AM NOT ALONE.
This war is eight years old....and ONE THIRD of the deaths have occured on your watch...during your 9 months in office. Get that? ONE THIRD!
Just bring them home or send them help. Remember you are writing history here.....every breath you take is going down in history....and every breath lost by our troops....is your history.
Never at any time in my life do I recall an American President and his Administration berating the American people who disagree with him. It is absolutely mind boggling to me. If you think about it, it is actually frightening. The American President wants to berate and silence those who disagree with his agenda.
Excuse me, Obamessiah.....but I am an American too. I have a right to disagree with you. While your sheeple sing your praises with children in public schools, let me remind them that if you are successful in silencing those who disagree with you....eventually they will be in our shoes. Oh their lucky damn day....you can silence them too.
This is not a one party nation contrary to what others believe. I do not have to agree with you, Obamessiah. In fact, there is a pretty good chance...that it is 100% unlikely.
I never recall Bush name calling his protesters....oh wait...yes he did. He referred to them as PATRIOTS! You know...people who love their country. He may not have been perfect, but he was surely a class act.
If Fox news is presenting a political viewpoint what do you call your healthcare reform in nightly TV programming? What do you call CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS and ABC? Wanna know what I call it? The Obamessiah channels. They are pushing YOUR agenda down the throats of American people. Along with your arts program....wait...are you using American TAX DOLLARS to do that?
The Obamaessiah needs to remember he is not a celebrity. He needs to shut his mouth, stay off the TV and get back to work bankrupting our country. The sooner he does that...the sooner people will wake up and see him for the idiot he is.
I just have one question for all you liberals....what do you call countries where people are silenced and ridiculed for their political beliefs. You know....those "one party" countries? Name one for me.
I am changing up my post this week to share with you my faith. You are not forced to read it. You can close the page and be done. I hope you won't.
I do not intend to debate my faith. I am only going to share it with those who choose to read it.
My life was like any other Mom's. Hectic, full calendars...dinner in time to get the kids in bed at a decent time for the following school day. I plugged along in my life without any real disasters. My Father and I were never very close. We had, at best, a turbulent relationship. My parents divorced when I was very young so I really never grew up with him. He was mean at times....very. A time or two in my life I remember him being nice for a minute. He was mentally ill. He was an addict. His addictions changed...from alcohol, to food. He grew to be an enormous sized man....some 500+ pounds at last check. Still, when he had nobody....I took him in. He was totally bedridden. Not able to walk....even to the bathroom. I took control of his food...and he lost down to 286 pounds. HE COULD WALK AGAIN! And walk he did....right to the refridgerator. Gained it all back...and we decided a nursing home was our only option. He was so big that just having him in the house was a dangerous situation for him. If there had been a fire.....we could never have gotten him out. He died April 6, 2001. Just a month before my youngest daughter was born. It hurt me....because we never connected. We never had one of those moments where I knew he loved me. I prayed that he was finally at peace.
A month later my baby comes....and then each year for three years my oldest daughter presented me with grandchildren. Life was hectic...and good.
My Mom and I were very close. She had major health problems...and in the summer of 2000 she came to live with me. The doctors had decided she could never live on her own and had suggested a nursing home. No way. We went to rehab three times a week...sometimes twice in a day. Hectic took on a whole new meaning for me. She had to learn to talk again.....learn to count money, and even make simple glass of water. She did it though. She had determination like I have never seen before.
She eventually moved back home to live indpendently...and her visits to us were once or twice a year. Though we talked everyday...either by phone or instant message. Her health was holding steady for a while...and then I could hear a change in her voice. She began having episodes that put her in the hospital....and she was losing her strength. Still, she came to visit...but at the airport...when I saw her....I was totally not prepared to SEE such a decline in her health. I remember as we were leaving the parking lot of the airport...it hit me. SHE WAS GOING TO DIE. I even had this overwhelming feeling that she would die during her visit....which she did.
My world came crashing down. Nothing made sense anymore...everything I had thought I knew about life...suddenly I understood that I knew nothing. I was angry with God. I wanted my Mother back. She deserved so much more than she had in life....her life was very hard.
As a child, I was raised between church of Christ and Baptist. Depending on which Grandmother had me that weekend. They shared some basic beliefs...but as an adult, I stayed with church of Christ. Now..my mother is gone...and everything I had learned about our Savior was gone too. After getting past my anger, I had to ask for forgiveness. When I say I was angry with God, that is an understatement. So I renewed my relationship with the Lord and sought understanding. I used prayer, my Bible, the internet...television....everything I could to find what I felt God wanted me to know.
I will see my Mom again. That was the first thing I came to understand. Armed with that knowledge, I found peace to continue my quest for knowledge.
I have come to believe that none of the churches really have it right. Although, I tend to lean more toward the church of God. Even within that "denomination" there are many contradicting beliefs. Is the Sabbath Saturday or Sonday. There are scriptures to support both. Still there is only one right way.
I am no longer sure that I believe there will be a rapture...though I would like there to be one. That being said, I am armed and ready to endure what I must for the Lord. I do believe we are seeing prophesy fulfilled at warp speed. Glenn Beck always says keep a diary, we are living in increbible times. I agree...but for more than his reason. I find prophesy very comforting, even though prophesy is not a pretty picture. It confirms my faith in God. I do not need prophesy to confirm it....but it is just amazing to see it come to be. What is sad is seeing people turn from God. Seeing our great nation turn into a "if it feels good, do it" nation. It hurts me to know that some 3500 human lives are taken each day before they can even begin. We have turned from God. Plain and simple.
Sometimes I am afraid but then I remember...the Lord says not to be afraid. When you realize that at the end of this long journey....Jesus returns, nothing seems so bad anymore. To be a part of a generation who could possibly be alive to see the return....is absolutely amazing. I may not make it, but I really believe my children could.
I truly believe that God is a loving God. I have tossed my hellfire and brimstone fears...and I know that God will never condemn anyone to hell that lived and never even heard the name Jesus, or the teenager who died before accepting Christ. I do not believe that God will condemn us to hell to burn forever....but rather the lake of fire is nothing more than the final death....the forever death. The thought of a final death does not feel much better than the thought of a lake of fire. If you have been shown the way to salvation and reject it, well...I honestly do not know if you get another chance. Time will tell.
Throughout my life I used to joke that God and I were going to have to have a discussion about the oceans being no more. The ocean is my favorite place on earth. I never could understand why? In my searches....I came to believe that almost everyone will get a second chance to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. If almost everyone who ever lives is resurrected to live again and be given the chance to know God.....I now understand why the oceans will be no more.
The sad part is that even being given a second chance...many will reject him. It just blows my mind.
Many Christians may read this and disagree with what I believe. That is not important. What is important is that we accept Christ. That you believe he dies on the cross for your sins. That is the very basic belief that will begin to save us. From there we must try to emulate Jesus. We will never do it....it is the effort that we are graded on.
The reality is...that so much of God's word is diluted by man...and most of us are not fully aware of how to do everything God wants us to do. Thankfully, Jesus will show us.
If you have not been saved....and would like to be....you can say a simple prayer...and ask Jesus to come into your heart and forgive you of your sins. You can be in your pajamas, or in a suit. It does not matter. What matters is that you are sincere.
"Dear God I know I'm a sinner, I know I am not where I want to be, and I want your forgiveness! I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sins.
Please wash me clean from all sin, shame, and guilt, come into my life Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I ask this in your name Jesus.
Either dust off your Bible or go buy one. Start reading. I suggest reading the Gospel of John first....then the old Testament followed by the New Testament. Surround yourself with people who are Christians. Find a church where you are comfortable and continue to read the Bible daily. You may find yourself changing churches a time or two as you grow in your faith. When I would see that a church said it was their way or burn in hell forever....I was usually outta there FAST!
I find it totally unimportant to get caught up in the pomp and circumstance of churches. What I find important is that they have the basics right. What are the basics? I believe the basics are The Ten Commandments and knowing that God sent his only son to die for your sins.
God bless you and if you are still reading this....THANK YOU!
Below you will find a link to my favorite website. I use this to look at scripture in all the different versions of the Bible. It helps me when I am looking for meaning. Some Bibles are easier to read.....and understand. I do prefer the King James Version and the New American Standard Bible. I hear rumor the New American Standard will soon go out of print. I suspect that rumor to be true because Barnes and Noble told me they are getting hard to find. Why? Well, that could be another entire topic...lol
I am all for people being punished for crimes they commit and are convicted. Still, hate crime laws seem more than a little unfair to me in the way they are being handled....or.....IGNORED.
A crime is a crime. I see no reason for additional laws to make the same crime more of a crime because of who the victim is. Hate crime laws are racist laws as far as I am concerned. They make it a worse crime with increased penalties for those convicted. Yet the very same crime against a white person is just a crime.
The Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome murders. Channon and Christopher were a white college couple who were carjacked, kidnapped by five blacks in Knoxville, Tennessee. They were both raped, horribly mutilated and murdered. Is this a hate crime?
If this had been white attackers and black victims...we would have likely seen riots if not charged as a hate crime.
Or what about Brian Milligan, Jr. of Buffalo, New York was savagely beaten by a gang of blacks because he was dating a black woman. He was punched and hit in the head with a chunk of concrete by a gang of blacks. They broke his jaw by kicking him in the face. Milligan’s father said he was tormented just walking down the street. Blacks called him "cracker" and then asked her why she was with a white guy and not a black guy. This is clearly a hate crime and it had better be charged as such when arrests are made.
What about a couple of black students beating up a white boy on a school bus? Is this not a hate crime?
Oh this cannot possibly be racially motivated....I mean the black kid was just protecting his seat, right?
We have laws already for crimes committed against people. What makes a black person being beat up more serious than a white person? Or a homosexual person being attacked much more serious than a heterosexual? They are all wrong. All should be punished to the full extent of the law.....but not more just because someone is black or gay.
This is reverse discrimination if you ask me. A crime is a crime. Period.
A parody PSA about Big Government and its plans to take over health care. A spoof of Will Ferrell's ad for MoveOn.org. On one hand it is very funny....but when you really think about it.....it is scary.
Define falsehood and rumor. Does ones opinion or true belief in something mean it is a rumor? Or it is their opinion...and they are free to speak their opinion because we have freedom of speech in this country?
"Another category of rumor propagators are the generally self-interested. Like when "Some right-wing websites liked to make absurd and hateful remarks about the alleged relationship between Barack Obama and the former radical Bill Ayers." (p. 13) ("Former" radical?)"
Umm...is this not freedom of speech? Or is it to be stifled because the current President does not like it?
Of course, creating a "chilling effect" isn't censorship. It is just a way to silence the right.
Interview with the victim and an associate of Polanski
Roman Polanski was arrested this week in Switzerland and faces extradition to the U.S. for raping a 13 year old girl some three decades ago. I simply cannot understand how Hollywood can stand behind this man and believe it should be dropped. This is clearly a difference in liberalism and conservatism. If this is a shining example of Hollywood liberalism, I am proud to be a redneck conservative.
I love how Whoopie says, it wasn't a "RAPE RAPE". What IS a "RAPE RAPE", Whoopie? This was a 13 year old girl who said NO. You seem to believe it is not a "RAPE RAPE" because she was aware. Hmm....she said no....so he drugs her. You seem to think it was not a "RAPE RAPE" because her parents were aware. Whoopie, it was a "RAPE RAPE". Give ya the benefit of the doubt....let's just say she WAS aware....and Roman had her parents approval. It is still a "RAPE RAPE". A grown man having sex with a child....is RAPE! What part of that do you not understand? If her parents were aware, they should be prosecuted too. In fact, they should be charged with nothing less than endangering the welfare of a child. If they were aware...they should be charged with the same charges as the rapist, Roman Polanski. Get the picture? A 13 year old is not capable of consent with a grown man. This was a "RAPE RAPE"that was plea bargained down to sex with a minor. Apparently, the judge changed his mind. Polanski, fearing a hundred years, fled.
I would have expected better from you, Whoopie. You wouldn't "necessarily" want your child having sex at 13 or 14? Is having sex the same as being raped?
Whoopie, define "necessarily". I am having a hard time with this one. I do not want my children having sex until they are adults...and hopefully married. I just cannot seem to think of anything that would "necessarily" would make me feel any different.
Not even rape.
Debra Winger, you are pretty damn witless too.
Kudos to Joy Behar. I never agree with her, but I do this time.
