mom

May 11, 2009

i’m sure my mother never reads this blog…she’s not into political blogs…so, i’ll just post this about her:

she’s a wonderful mother…she’s intellegent, funny, strong, spiritual and kind…i gave her a hard time growing up (and well into my 40s) but every child gives their mother a hard time…it’s their job, i guess…

one of my favorite memories of my mother is that first sunday morning we were in deridder louisiana…we lived next to the church building and my father was going to preach his first sermon as their new preacher…on the walk over to church services, my mother took my hand and we walked hand-in-hand…she didn’t do ‘affection’ very often…and that few moments holding her hand will stay with me for the rest of my life…

of course, people at church thought i was retarded but that’s beside the point…

i’m blessed to have her as my mother…

fear and stress

May 4, 2009

i’ve been busy and worried lately and haven’t been blogging…what with the H1N1 flu and the pakistani/iran thing, i’ve been a little frozen with fear and stress..

i’m better now…not because the flu is gone or the pakistani/iran thing is going away…it’s because i’m fed up with being afraid and stressed…

so, i bought a new bed and i watched movies this weekend…my favorite thing in the world is watching british mysteries and old masterpiece theatres…

and, the news about the flu is a little better (still watching the southern hemisphere) and the thing in pakistan/iran is something i can’t control…so, i pray and read my bible and write my book…

i’m old, what can i say….

what we have in washington are a bunch of idiots and liars…no surprise there but the real problem is the way the American people are being duped into believing that torture was used on terrorists and how horrible the last administration was in doing so!

just stop! listen to the facts and try and grow some brain cells today…i’m talking to you, olbermann! stop whining and throwing fits about a non-issue!

basically, pelosi and reid and all the others trying to wriggle out of the discussion about what they knew and when did they know it, are acting like pontius pilate when it came to crucifying Jesus…he was afraid of making the Jews mad and afraid of looking weak in front of the romans…so, he punted and ordered the Christ crucified…

pelosi and reid and all the other cowards are punting…they don’t want to look bad in front of their voters and they’re afraid of the backlash and, to be honest, jail time…so, they’re punting…’i can’t discuss this in lieu of an investigation’…what a bunch of hogwash…

another point: waterboarding…think about it…is it torture? if so, then you better tell the US Navy Seals…they do it to their recruits in training…and thank God! the Seals are the best fighting men and women in the world…and, they’re not wimps…have you even seen GI Jane????

our nation is in so much trouble right now…we’re less safe than any other time in history…i miss Ronald Reagan so much right now…and, i wish Fred Thompson had been elected president…what a difference it would have made…

but, i digress…if the democrats want a ‘truth commision’, i say: ‘bring it on!’ let’s get to the truth…

i just watched a video of a cnn reporter (?) interviewing a tax party participant…he was in the process of answering her question about taxes from the government when the reporter kept trying to interupt and began shouting about how obama’s administration will ‘give’ him a rebate and that illinois is getting $50 billion in stimulus…then, when he tried to continue his answer she walked away and tossed it back to the studio saying ‘this is really not meant for family viewing’…

how’s that again? talking about taxes is not meant for family viewing?

obviously, the reporter is a flaming liberal and can’t keep her non-partisan slant in her pants…

in other news: al (not so) sharpton (credit to mark levin for that moniker) called the murderous pirates from somalia ‘volunteer coast guards’…yes, he did…i’m not kidding…

what is this nation coming to? i mean, are liberals just stupid? well, according to mark levin, they’re a lot less intellegent than conservatives…and, i have to agree with him…look at the numbskulls obama placed in office: all tax cheats or liars…

so, i’m hoping that i’m not arrested for blogging this stuff cuz according to DHS, i’m a terrorist…

God bless America…

let me get this straight:

1. because i believe in the sanctity of life and am fully and completely against abortion, i’m an extremists?
2. because i’m an advocate for the 2nd amendment, i’m an extremists?
3. because young men come home from fighting for our country and happen to be republican, they’re extremists?
4. because i’m a christian conservative and believe in God, i’m an extremists? and,
5. because i attend a peaceful rally on ‘tea party’ day, i’m an extremists?

all because we elected a black president?

ummmm…what?

what country do i live in?

oh, and, God bless America…

easter sunday worshippers

April 10, 2009

one of my favorite passages is from Luke 24…when the women went to the tomb of Jesus to put spices on Him, they found that someone had moved the stone…now, i’m not sure how they thought that they could roll the stone away themselves, but it was already rolled…the sight confused them…who had done this? then, they saw two men wearing shiny clothing…that scared the women and they dropped to the ground…then the two angels asked a question that told the women everything they needed to know, ‘Why do you seek the living among the dead.”…why indeed…

every Easter sunday millions of people go to church with shiny faces and new clothes…this is usually the only time they attend the local services (except for maybe christmas…unless christmas falls on game day or there are too many presents to open)…these people go to worship services to celebrate the resurrection of Christ…and i’m wondering – if they go to church to celebrate the risen Christ, why aren’t they following what Christ told them to do? in Luke 22, Christ told His disciples to partake of His body and blood in order for them to remember His death, burial and resurrection…and, in I Corinthians, He tells us that whenever the church comes together (on the first day of the week) to partake of the Lord’s supper, do it in a manner worthy of His death and resurrection…

so, if you’re going to church on easter sunday and no other sunday, please stay home…you’re doing yourself more harm than good…and, read you bible…you’ll learn a few things…

the horizontal president

April 9, 2009

i was raised by parents who were the least racists people i’ve ever known…in my parents eyes, everyone was a child of God and everyone was equal in the sight of God…everyone…my father lost a job as a minister of the Lord’s church because he wanted to invite Black families to worship with us…our elders said ‘no’…he said ‘yes’…so they fired him…i was so proud of my father…he’s my hero…

yesterday i saw my president bowing to the king of saudi arabia…bowing…the Unitied States President…Bowing!!!

i had to really fight hard against the anger boiling up in my heart for my president…i may not agree with anything he’s doing or saying but he’s my president and the Bible tells me i must respect my government and obey the laws…

still…i know a few soldiers who weren’t too happy with it…and i’m sure that the families of soldiers who have died so that our president didn’t have to bow to anyone, were a little dismayed…and i know that the memory of soldiers from past wars were slapped in the face by the sight of our president bowing to the king of saudia arabia…and i’m fairly certain that the secret service guys who would give their lives for our president felt embarrased by the sight of their president, the leader of the free world, bowing to another head of state…

who does he think he is? just another al sharpton or jesse jackson cowtowing to the whims of whoever just because they’re black? he’s the president of the United States of America!

i believe that obama is getting a pass from the media and liberals everywhere because he is Black…if a white republican president had bowed to another head of state, he would be skewered…oh, wait, a white democratic president DID bow to another head of state and got wacked by the media…so, why didn’t obama?

oh, yea! silly me…i forgot…he’s ‘the One’…he can do no wrong…sorry, i lost my head for a second…

also, the ‘Black Causcus’ (whatever that is) met with the cuban leader and a few of them got to meet with fidel himself! they were overjoyed and couldn’t hide their giddish schoolgirl crush on the man who jailed and tortured a Black man for years! the cuban leader is a flat out racist and they don’t care! he wants to help obama succeed!…well, of course he does…obama is, of course, a socialist wannabe…and probably reminds him of a young junior senator who was once president in the 60s…ah, memories…

my country is abandoning its roots…the founding fathers are a thing of the past…no longer is our nation a ‘christian nation’ as our inexperienced president has announced…

i have never believed that God is pro-American…He is pro-christian…pro-human…His favor is not for one nation over another…that ended after Christ died on the cross…since then, He is the God of all men…

having said that, i am saddened by the words of obama…this nation was formed with Christian values at its base…the founding fathers wrote and truly believed that this new nation must have, at its core, Christian values or it would be lost…

i’ve just read mark levin’s book ‘liberty and tyranny’…the last time i was so moved was after i read goldwater’s masterpiece on conservatives…this book is the new book of the conservative party…it should be required reading for every student above the age of 10…it must be analyzed, broken down and digested…every American and future American must use it as a tool to get back to the principles and standards that made this nation great…

our nation is the greatest nation on earth…if obama and his minions have their way, we will soon be like any other nation of europe…

we must not let that happen…

God bless America

the queen’s ipod

April 1, 2009

again, the president of the United States of America has given an idiot gift to another world leader…an ipod…to the queen…of England…seriously, can he be more lame?

and, instead of saying ‘the UK’, he says ‘England’…leaving out the scots and ireland…

remember when fred said ‘soviet union’ and the press blasted him? where is that same press now?

boy, do i miss the old days when protocol was king and the terrorists were afraid…

this will probably make my parents cringe, but, i have come to believe that if you are a Christian, you must therefore be a conservative…

now, before you start picking up stones, let me explain myself…

there are Christian principles that are undeniable…for example: the Bible is inspired of God…Christ is God’s only son and He died so that we might live with Him forever…abortion is murder…people are responsible for their own actions…we must take care of those who are unable to take care of themselves (orphans, widows and the sick and injured)…

now, of course you can be a conservative and be part of any religion you want…you can be a conservative and be an atheist if you so desire! but, if you are a Christian and you believe the Bible to be the word of God, you must be a conservative…

why? because conservatives believe that abortion is murder…liberals do not…I would love for the issue of abortion to be the core issue of the conservative party…it isn’t…but, its my ‘bottom line’ when it comes to who I vote for…and it should be the same for Christians…

the conservative party is the party of empowering people to be responsible…it is the party of the most charitable people in the nation (don’t believe me? look at the statistics)…it is the party that protects those who cannot protect themselves…including the unborn…

so, if you’re a Christian and you typically vote for liberals, think again…read your Bible…pray for wisdom…and start voting for the party that supports your Christian values…
