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…

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…

welcome to hopenchange

March 30, 2009

so, you’re in the mood to buy a new car…i know, it’s a stretch…and you have to decide which car you want…your choices are foreign and domestic…i know, it’s basically the same…

are you going to 1) buy domestic and take the risk that the company will be taken over by the government (and we all know how that always turns out!); or, 2) buy foreign and risk getting fined by DMV for buying foreign?

your choice…or is it? do we actually have a choice in the car we buy if obama fires the ceo of GM and threatens the other American car makers of bankruptcy?

and, what country DO i live in?

welcome to ‘hopenchange’…

treebenders

March 27, 2009

well…this is my first post and i’m a little intimidated…i’ll start at the beginning:

the name ‘treebender’ comes from a line in a movie: nine to 5…one of the characters says: ‘i’m a tree, i can bend…’ it’s a phrase i use often…i’m a tree and i can bend but i will not break…

the state of the nation today is such that the winds of ‘change’ is nearly breaking me…change? not really…the same policies from the bush administration are being used today…and, the same hogwash being spewed out of the mouths of the idiots on the hill is stuff we’ve been hearing since FDR…only, now, the idiots are in power and we, the people of principle, are hanging on by the skin of our teeth (whatever that means)…

what the founding fathers believed and recorded for us to follow is lost…even lincoln (who started out as a republican but moved ever so swiftly to the left) would bow his head in shame if he were to witness the events of the past few months…a junior senator, with no experience at all except running for president, leading this precious nation towards bankruptcy and ruin…and the reason? because he can…and, he has the idiots on the hill and the liberal news behind him…

God bless this nation and may God help us…He’s the only one who can…
