Save us from what we have become

I made a title change on this video until I am thoroughly convinced and can back it up that it was as represented. No justice can ever come from committing injustice. That was not my intent. It's time to move past the Qur'an burning issue. There are fellow Christians being killed daily while we argue about books being burned. Our attention is misguided. As 9/11 approaches we should honor the fallen and make sure that we never forget what happened that day. A small group in Florida should not hijack our emotions as this solemn day approaches. Better to promote awareness of the plight of Christians worldwide at the hands of these evil hordes.

Why the War on Radical Islam is Going Badly, The Commander in Chief is a Dope

As we reach the ninth anniversary of the 911 terrorist attack on America in which nearly 3,000 of our fellow Americans were murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists, we find ourselves in an odd and disturbing place.

We have a president

  • Whose counter-terrorism adviser considers jihad a legitimate tenet of Islam
  • Who considers conservative, patriotic Americans a greater threat than Islamic terrorists
  • Whose Secretary of Homeland Defense says “the system worked” when a terrorist attempt to blow up a plane failed only because of the bomber’s incompetence
  • Who alienates the one real democracy in the Middle East
  • Who appoints people that are radical, anti-American communists
  • Who says he is committed to closing our terrorist POW camp despite the recidivism of these terrorists
  • Who appoints a Supreme Court justice who favors foreign law over American law
  • Who pals around with anti-American Marxist dictators
  • Who bows to a foreign Islamic king
  • Who can’t help bashing his own country even as he tries to get the Olympics here
  • Who relegates the war on terrorism to an “Overseas Contingency Operation” or merely an “unpleasant afterthought”
  • Who wants to do away with the terrorist threat alert system (perhaps going to one color–waving the white flag)
  • Who has a radical past including pals that are domestic terrorists and ones with foreign terrorist connections

Our president even refuses to name who it is we are fighting–maybe because he doesn’t want to fight them at all…

Just so you don't think Islamic Radicals are harmless

A catholic college in India had a professor who insulted Muslims by some comment he made about Mohammad. The Crazies cut the man's hand off. The college fired him.

Now they are thinking about rehiring him.


Where the fear of man will lead
The U. S. Military Burn Christian Holy Bibles in Fear of Muslims. The pro-Muslim traitor, Barack Obama says nothing. All congressmen say nothing, Pope says nothing, most Christians say nothing. Let a pastor of a small church in the Mid-West say he is going to burn a Koran and the world goes insane...

  • The United States has been Snared. Fear of Man.

    Proverbs 29:25 "The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted."

    Isaiah 57:11
    ... "Whom have you so dreaded and feared that you have been false to me,
    and have neither remembered me nor pondered this in your hearts? Is it
    not because I have long been silent that you do not fear me?

    Luke 12:4 "I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.

    Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe

Why Jobs have left the USA

Small business manufacturing was priced out of the US employment market by a combination of (slightly) higher labor costs and massively higher regulatory costs here (environmental, OSHA, Zoning, taxation) compared to other nations.

By small business manufacturing I mean the family that owns a metal-bending business or a loom embroidery business or a casting business. I personally know these owners, who closed their businesses or moved their machinery to Mexico, rather than make the capital investment to stay in compliance with new USA regulations.

Their workers were perfectly happy to work for them; they continually hired and trained young people; they were emotionally drained when they closed down.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the blood stream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same." Ronald Reagan


At the Ft. Hood Memorial Service...

The Crotch Salute Returns


I'm sorry folks, but is this the turkey that was elected President of our country?

You know, the United States of America ?
I do believe that saluting the flag goes with that, and also to honor the servicemen who died, or is he above that?
Shower us all with flowery words and dazzle us with B.S.
But actions speak louder. How many passes do you have to give this guy before you realize he is not one of us and is working on his own agenda and is not good for America ? He won’t salute our flag and pay respect to our troops but he will bow to a Saudi Prince. This stinks.
Pass it on if you feel the same way.

A Call for you to Recycle

How they vote in the United Nations:
Below are the actual voting records of various Arabic/Islamic States which are recorded in both the US State Department and United Nations records:

Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time

Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time

Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time

United Arab Emirates votes against the U. S. 70% of the time.

Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.

Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.

Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the time.

Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.

Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.

Oman votes against the United States 74% of the time.

votes against the United States 75% of the time.

votes against the United States 76% of the time.

votes against the United States 80% of the time.

India votes against the United States 81% of the time.

Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.

U S Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

Jordan votes 71% against the United States

And receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Pakistan votes 75% against the United States

Receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

India votes 81% against the United States

Receives $143,699,000 annually.

Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax savings back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay the taxes.

Pass this along to every taxpaying citizen you know.

Working out your salvation with fear and trembling

I don't think there has been a more intellectually challenging and difficult task than sorting thru the reality and falsehood in Christianity. Despite what some people think, it takes perception and intelligence to come to true faith in Jesus. It's not just simple acceptance of what people tell you.

It is said, don't let anyone should on you. It's extra true as a Christian. When people are new they have all kinds of shoulds and shouldn'ts. As time goes on and they become mature, as they worked out their faith with fear and trembling (not reason) until they come to the point that there is only ONE point. That is a personal intimate relationship with the Living Jesus and with others who also have that relationship. The fact that it all gets complicated by church and rituals and buildings is tertiary. Church just happens to be the place where I run into those people mostly.

And the challenges never stop. I am constantly wrestling with theological issues that are more and more difficult as they present themselves. I find no other intellectual/spiritual exercise as rewarding as the one in which I am engaged; not politics, not economics not even horticulture. They are comprehensible in the end. Not so with Christianity. The wholeness of the truth of the Word of God and how that relates to all of us is amazing and gives great reward in the struggle. Even if I never arrive at the fullness of truth this side of the veil.

That's why whenever unbelievers go off on Christianity or some aspect of the faith with some frankly inane opinion I almost never engage in the discussion. They can't possibly even comprehend what I might say. It's kind of like arguing economics with people who haven't wrestled with the theories and practices of economic schools of thought or tested them against reality. Why bother? If you haven't earned the right to discuss it by working it out, you really don't have an opinion, OK you do, but it has no validity in the arena of ideas. Such an opinion expressed only demonstrates the lack of intellectual depth the one who expresses it really has.

I run into this in debating college professors and theologians with PhD's. They are sometimes at the outset dismissive of what I say. Over time, I gain their respect, but it comes only after I demonstrate pretty rich understanding. It's a tough shell to crack. Education can be dangerous. People actually believe what they were taught and haven't yet worked it out for themselves. IF I have to approach a situation and need counsel, I will take practice over theory every time. Experience over education. Character over intelligence. It doesn't mean that I won't factor in theory, education or intelligence. It must follow a knowing because you've been there.

When we get piled
upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe .

Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every
generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on would save
one-half the wars of the world.

Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for
Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the
pretense of taking care of them.

Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much

Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.

Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.

Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be
refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.

Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in
'I believe that
banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties
than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow
private banks to control the issue of their
currency, first by inflation,
then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will
grow up around the banks will deprive the people
of all property -
until their children
wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers

CENSORSHIP... if this had been a gay and lesbian club they would have been given a place of prominance

Thin Skin is not Leadership
Obama in just twenty months has developed a reputation for being petulant, unusually sensitive to the normal run-of-the-mill criticism. His latest pushback was his strangest so far: “And they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, it’s just —
Nobody is listening to Obama anymore except the media, and they don't matter right now. It's striking. Obama has demonstrated, folks, he is a combination of an incompetent dissembler and leftist whose word can't be trusted. People are tuning him out. He's becoming an aggravation on television. It's, "Oh, no, is it him again?"
Europe is changing daily and if we don't take a stand in America we will be dealing with this ourselves , it is time to cry out to our father in heaven and let boldness arise on the body of Christ to take and stand and speak out to see things come to order. the enemy is trying to sneak in little by little and our children will have a major problem if we don't speak out now ! this is AMERICA !

Opposition members: Building began in 2005, 85% completed; site buried deep in mountains to prevent detection, aerial bombardment; meant to house centrifuge cascades.

Paul Ryan has some answers

The social safety net is in crisis and must be reformed to strengthen America's commitment to those most reliant on it. Should Washington continue to cling to the unsustainable status quo, a truly draconian future awaits. The Roadmap is a plan for prosperity, not austerity. It serves as an invitation for my colleagues to offer solutions of their own to restore the promise and prosperity of our exceptional nation.
Democratic leaders eager to demagogue solutions while exacerbating the entitlement crisis advance a disservice to seniors, future generations.

In a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) on Wednesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised the work of the United Nations and said it is "the single most important global institution."

Too Bad we have Pee Wee Herman negotiating for us

Islam, the religion of peace!
CNN: If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse, the headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it. The battlefront is between moderates and radicals on both sides


The Muslim 9-11 "Victory Mosque" at Ground Zero is going to be called the Cordoba House. It is being named after the Muslim conquest of Cordoba, Spain many centuries ago. How can the Muslims claim that this is not a victory mosque?


How many threats does America give in to?
If we don't allow them to build the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero, "Anger will explode in the Muslim world". Sounds like a threat to me!

A greater Nashville resident and outspoken opponent of the construction of a Murfreesboro mega-mosque in Tennessee has received two death threats after an appearance on the comedy program The Daily Show.

get ready America.....
Burning Korans and criticizing religions is still protected speech in America. However, in Europe, speaking out against Islam can lead to a jail sentence.

A man from Scotland speaks:

Aye, if you live in Scotland, you have your right to your religion and I have my right to mine. Some are under the misnomer that Muslims have taken over the UK. NOT SO!! There are some right-wing papers such as the Telegraph that would like... to make you believe as such, but they have not. Yes, they do have one or two Sharia courts, but they only deal with familial and community issues, not legal matters because they must submit to the Law of the land.

Likewise, let's not forget that in the UK there are also Jewish courts which also, like the Sharia courts can only handle family and community matters.

I agree it is ridiculous that people can have a free bash at Christianity, but if you have a wee bash at Muhammed the false prophet and Islam in general you can be arrested. In fact, the same is so if you attack ANY other religion....except Christianity. Attacks against the Church, the Bible and Jesus are perfectly fine (!).

Won't work, it's not about the money, but thanks Donald
Donald Trump, the real estate mogul, has offered to purchase the site of the proposed Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero with a 25 per cent markup.

SEIU will be busy this weekend
A coalition of groups in favor of the right to build a mosque near Ground Zero announced it will hold a counter-demonstration Saturday to those planning to protest the project.

Does ANYONE believe this?
Three days before 9/11 anniversary, Muslim cleric says new building will contain an attack memorial.

Wouldn't this be the same as book burning, except electronic?
