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…
Now they are thinking about rehiring him.
ISLAM IS EVIL
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

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.

WHO IN THE HELL STARTED
THIS AND WHY?
THEY ACTUALLY BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS THEM.
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.
GO GREEN - RECYCLE CONGRESS IN 2010
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 .
The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
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.
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.
My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much
No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms.
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.
The must be
refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.
To compel a man to subsidize with
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
said in 1802:
'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
Pretty Good Advice - I'm not (yet) a billionaire, but it's how I live my life
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 !
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.
"The greater responsibility for this issue lies with the US government, and with the United Nations," Mursi said.
Islam, the religion of peace!
Does this make ANY sense?
Where is OUR homeland security? Are they on their 6th vacation too?
get ready America.....
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 (!).
