A Time to Stand by Dr. Steve Elwart

We are fast approaching a time when each of us will have to make some decisions—decisions about our life, our relationships, and our worldview.

After World War II, the Communist Party assumed control of Romania. Once the Communists came to power, they proceeded to co-opt the Church. They spoke of love and tolerance, but these words masked their true intentions.

Those Christians (including the clergy) who did not have a strong Biblical foundation were easily deceived and many who did were intimidated into silence.

After the takeover, the Romanian Communists convened a congress of four thousand priests, pastors, and ministers of all denominations in their Parliament building with the proceedings being carried in a national radio broadcast. One by one, the ministers got up and had nothing but words of praise for communism and assured the new government of the loyalty of the Christian Church.

Richard Wurmbrand
One of the pastors scheduled to speak was a man named Richard Wurmbrand. As he listened and waited, his wife Sabina leaned over to him and said, “They are spitting in the face of Christ. Richard, stand up and wash away this shame.”

He said to her, “If I do so, you lose your husband.” She replied, “I don’t wish to have a coward as a husband.” (me - What a woman!!!!)

So Wurmbrand rose and instead of repeating the same thing every other pastor said, he told the assembly how wrong they were and how this flew in the face of Christian doctrine.

At this point, the broadcast was interrupted and the martyrdom of the Wurmbrands began. Sabina went on to serve eight years in prison while Richard served a total of fourteen years, eight of which were in solitary confinement.

As Richard Wurmbrand said,
In solitary confinement, we could not pray as before. We were unimaginably hungry…The Lord’s Prayer was much too long for us—we could not concentrate enough to say it. My only prayer repeated again and again was, “Jesus, I love You.”

After he and his wife immigrated to the United States, he was called to testify before the United States Senate, stripping to the waist to reveal the scars of eighteen wounds received from frequent tortures. A reporter with the Philadelphia Herald said of Wurmbrand’s time in prison, “He stood in the midst of lions, but they could not devour him.”

Not all the Romanian clergy were as brave as this. Orthodox and Protestant churches would outdo each other in showing their loyalty to the Communist Party. One Orthodox bishop put the hammer and sickle on his robes and asked his priests to no longer call him “Your Grace,” but “Comrade Bishop.”

The deputy bishop of the Lutheran church in Romania began to teach in the theological seminary that God had given three revelations: one through Moses, one through Jesus, and the third through Stalin, the last superseding the other two.

What Happened?
The Communist coup in Romania was not like authoritarian takeovers in other countries. Rather than the systematic annihilation of their enemies, such as with the Castro regime in Cuba or the Pol Pot government in Cambodia, this coup was “civilized.”

Rather than an outright prosecution of the church, they seduced it. After the seduction came the oppression, but by that time it was too late. The time to fight back was past.

What would you do if you face a situation like the one confronting the Wurmbrands? We all like to think that when the time comes to stand up for our faith, we would be as heroic as Richard and Sabine Wurmbrand.

The truth is if a person has not conditioned himself to resist evil and waits for his “big moment,” he will find himself wanting. If one spends their life compromising their values in small ways, they will continue to compromise in larger ones. In today’s politically correct world, it is easy to find ways to compromise, to rationalize one’s actions. If one subscribes to the idea of relative values, there is no place where you can say, “This far and no more.”

Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947) once wrote, "What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike."

While written almost 100 years ago, this philosophy still defines the secular worldview today. While a Christian defines morality through the lens of the Bible, the World defines it according to the transient whims of the time
Though Whitehead was raised in a Christian home, he rejected every aspect of Christian teaching. A mathematician and philosopher, Whitehead’s influence was felt on both sides of the Atlantic, as he taught at both Cambridge and Harvard.
Using these universities as his pulpit, Whitehead preached his version of “process theology.” a term used in his time for situational ethics, a philosophy that can be traced back as far as the teachings of Plato. (It is also through the Greek school of thought that theologians began to allegorize the Bible, polluting God’s basic message to us.)

Relativistic morality is pervasive in the world today. In fact, those of us who hold to a Biblical worldview are not only in the minority, we are on the brink of being ostracized.

It is easy to talk about such things in theory, but it is another thing when it happens to you.

A Personal Stand
For this writer, the recent controversy over admitting homosexuals into the Boy Scouts was the event that turned theory into reality.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) was founded in 1910 under a charter granted by the United States Congress, one of only two organizations so honored (the other being the Red Cross). The principles of the organization are embodied by the Scout Oath:

The Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

When I joined the Cub Scouts in 1959, the oath was clear and unambiguous. The organization embodied patriotism, a belief in God, the promise to live by the Golden Rule and to live a moral life.
Starting in the 1960s some people began questioning the mission of the Boy Scouts.

Attack from the Atheists
The first attack came from atheists. While the BSA will grant membership to anyone who believes in a “higher power”, atheists believed that the Boy Scouts should not discriminate against them and should grant membership to those who do not have any belief in God.

This issue seemed to be settled when in 1993 the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of a lower federal court ruling on the issue. The case at hand was whether the Boy Scouts of America could deny membership to atheists and agnostics without violating federal anti-discrimination laws. The U.S. appeals court in Chicago concluded that the federal law forbidding discrimination in “places of public accommodation” did not include private groups such as the Boy Scouts. The ruling dismissed a lawsuit filed on behalf of a seven-year-old Illinois boy who refused to make the required Boy Scout pledge to “ my duty to God and my country.”

As a result, while the BSA could maintain their policy on atheists, they were barred from many schools and other public buildings because of their stance on this issue.

More Attacks
The next group that challenged BSA policy was the homosexual lobby. They sued the BSA over the policy barring homosexuals from being Scouts or Scout leaders.

This issue was supposed to be resolved with the 2000 landmark Supreme Court case Boy Scouts of America v. Dale that ruled that as a private organization, the BSA could exclude a person from membership when “the presence of that person affects in a significant way the group’s ability to advocate public or private viewpoints.”

Even with a loss in the courts, the homosexual lobby then took a different tack—they went after the money. Those who wanted homosexuals in the BSA began to put pressure on contributors to the organization to withhold funding to effect a change in the rules.

The Current Controversy
In response to growing pressure to change its membership policy, in July 2012 the Executive Committee of the BSA’s Executive Board released a statement revealing that an “11 person committee” convened since 2010 by the BSA conducted a two-year review and reached a “unanimous consensus” recommending retaining the current membership policy.

Still not satisfied with the outcome, those that wanted a change continued to put pressure on BSA’s large contributors. In February of this year, UPS and Intel both announced that they would withhold their funding until BSA changed their membership policy.

In response, BSA announced that the Executive Board would vote again on the membership issue even though they voted to retain the current policy just seven months before. This decision caused an uproar within the BSA rank and file. Many felt that it was a betrayal of the leadership, caving in to money interests.

The Executive Board then reversed themselves yet again and announced that they would postpone their vote until the upcoming annual meeting, scheduled for next month.

Rules for Radicals
What is happening to the BSA is becoming a common occurrence in today’s society. An organization that used to be viewed as being synonymous with American Values has slowly become vilified and is now being projected as anti-American.

The tactics that were used to maneuver BSA to such a state come right out of a classic book written by Saul Alinsky titled, Rules for Radicals. Rule #13 in his book is, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Alinsky codified a technique that has been used for years for people and groups to push through a particular agenda.

In this case the Boy Scouts were the target. Their position on homosexuals in Scouting was “frozen” in place and “personalized” in the persona of a Boy Scout who was expelled from Scouting for announcing that he was homosexual and a Cub Scout Leader who announced she was homosexual as well.

As a result, BSA found themselves “polarized.” They were polarized from much of America. They went from being held up as model for good citizenship to being booed during the opening flag ceremony at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

They have also polarized their membership. The policy the BSA Executive Board has decided to vote on is the worst of all worlds. The new motion would allow local units to decide for themselves whether or not to admit gays into their troops and packs. The Board argues that the units would not have to associate with homosexuals if they chose not to. In this regard, they are being disingenuous at best. Scouting units come together for larger activities involving multiple troops and packs.

The only way to be sure a unit would not associate with homosexuals in Scouting would be to isolate themselves completely from all other Scouting groups and activities.

In the name of tolerance, homosexual advocates have moved the BSA from mainstream to almost a fringe group.

But that is not enough for these activists. They have stated that they will not rest until BSA endorses the homosexual lifestyle.

While the tolerant attitude would be to “live and let live” and start their own scouting organization, they have decided to forcibly impose their values on others. They decided that they cannot tolerate intolerance.

This leaves the Christian Scout Leader or parent on the horns of a dilemma. It is very similar to one facing many people in conflict with their church. The question for them is “Do they stay in the organization and work within or do they leave that organization?”

For many leaders the only answer is to leave. To stay in the organization is to give a tacit endorsement to the policies they espouse.

What is happening to the BSA and their leaders is a microcosm of a larger secular war being waged on several fronts. The concept of Freedom of Religion is slowly being replaced with Freedom of Worship, relegating one’s faith and beliefs to the four walls of a building. God-given rights are being replaced with “rights” granted by the state, Freedom is being replaced with “fairness.”

Decision Time
We are fast approaching a time when each of us will have to be make some decisions—decisions about our life, our relationships, and our worldview.

The first thing we need to do is be strong in our faith. Are we secure in Him?

Next, we need a firm hold on our worldview. A worldview is the framework that we hang our life decisions on. If one believes that there are moral absolutes, then the decisions we make every day become easy. If our worldview consists of moral relativisms, then every decision and life choice is studied, considered, and worried over.

Ephesians 6 is one of the best instruction manuals for preparing for the coming battle. It teaches us to put on the Full Armor of God and to put it on before the battle is joined.

But we also must act. Before his death at the hands of the Nazis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

Each of us has a part to play in the battles to come. The question is: will we stand tall with Christ as Richard and Sabine Wurmbrand did, or will we spit in the Face of Christ?

Obama Care. Just wait to see what happen in 2013 & 2014!

Age 76 Today, I went to the Dr. for my monthly B12 shot that I have been getting for a number of years. The nurse came and got me, got out the needle filled and ready to go then looked at the computer and got very quiet and asked if I was prepared to pay for it. I said no that my insurance takes care of it.

She said, that Medicare had turned it down and went to talk to my Dr. about it. 15 minutes later she came back and said, she was sorry but they had tried every-thing they could but Medicare is beginning to turn many things away for seniors because of the projected Obama Care coming in. She was brushing at tears and said, "Some day they too will get old", I am so very sorry!!

Please for the sake of many good people. . . informed please .

At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment

* see page 272
What Nancy Pelosi didn't want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed. Remember she said, "We have to pass the Bill so that we can see what's in it." Well, here it is.
Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number



Judge Kithil of Marble Falls, TX - highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200
Please read this....... especially the reference to pages 58 & 59

Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).

Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)

Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.

Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.

Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)

Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:

"Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress.
Honorable David Kithil of Marble Falls , Texas

All of the above should give you the ammo you need to oppose Obamacare.

Upside: Pay Off That Mortgage Now! - Various Views against and for...

 This guy really thinks there is a percentage to be gained in paying off your mortgage... IS THERE??  It depends on what you are going to do with the money... or not..   IF 5 years ago you had paid off your mortgage you would have lost a lot of money.  A LOT! 
Upside: Pay Off That Mortgage Now! -

OR you could just take that money and live the life you earned:  "The financial industry urges us to plan as though we'll all live into our 90s—though most of us, alas, won't. A healthy 65-year-old person has a life expectancy of almost 20 years. But, really, that is a 50-50 chance: Roughly half the folks alive at 65 will die before reaching 85.

If we guess wrong, the consequences could be severe. Yet, on the flip side, says Michael Finke, professor of personal financial planning at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, most savers will die leaving behind vacations that weren't taken or family gatherings that were missed".

The case for spending some of your money NOW!

 OF course one of the largest money managers in the USA says this about mortgages:

"Many people misunderstand or misrepresent the benefits of mortgages, and they get the key points wrong. If you read this chapter from The Truth About Money with an open mind, then by the time you finish, you will agree that you should have as big a mortgage as you can get and never pay it off".

 11 Great Reasons to Carry a Big, Long Mortgage

and a debate answer on the subject:  

I have become less and less enamored of the idea that "Owning" a home is an advantage.  I hate home repairs.  I despise thinking about the taxes and upkeep.   Renting is beginning to make more and more sense all the time.  Home ownership is NOT an investment...or worse is a really bad investment.

The American Spectator : Hillary: Polygamy, Polyamory a Civil Right --- on April 1st

In my own personal life, I can never forget the wonderful and deeply courageous women who have made my marriage to Bill so richly diverse and distinctly memorable, whether in our days in Arkansas or the White House. But the journey is far from over, and therefore we must keep working to make our country free, fairer and more chilled out.”

Over the years I have come to realize the sheer bigotry, not to mention futility, of keeping people from loving the people they want to love.

There is no reason in the world my marriage can’t be shared with Monica, or as I call her “Sister Wife Number 17” not to mention with Gennifer (Sister Wife Number 5), Paula (Sister Wife Number 6) and, well, not to bore with names, Sister Wives Number 2, 3, 4 and 7 thru 16.

Einstein Imagination..
More At:- @[246755835394453:274:I Am an Engineer to Change the World]

Things Obama Claims he did.. which he didn't. His list of Accomplishments are a tallly of failures

1. Passed Health Care Reform:  Obamacare is turning out to be the worst piece of legislation ever contrived.  IT is more accurately called the unfordable health care act.
    2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009.  Most of the money was not spent on projects but went to support public service unions and government workers.

    3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector .  This by itself has crippled the economic engine in the USA.  Regulation has strangled any potential to get well.

     4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.  Now the country is in disarray and IRAN is taking over.  Well played Mullahs. and Boo on Obama.

    5. Began Draw-down of Afghanistan Troops: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012.  The Taliban can't wait for us to leave, we are condemning hundreds of thousands to slavery and slaughter.

    6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered. He didn't DO this, he allowed for it and then revealed the identities of the men involved endagring them and several died since because of his incompetence.

    7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans.  The Unions ended up getting theirs and the stock and bond holders got screwed.  IF they had been allowed to go bankrupt.. there would be better results.  OH and the VOLT?? What a stupid idea that turned out to be.

    8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.  This is NOT true.  It has cost the government big time.  AND bailing out the banks did nothing for the private sector.  Banksters still rule.  They bought and paid for this president.
    9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.  Isn't THAT Special?
NOW we have the beginning of nationalized gay marriage.  Didn't that work out well??
    10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost. Well.  Other than the ones at Bengazi.  Other than the ones now killed to keep quiet.  This was a huge mistake.  HUGE.  Now the Muslim brotherhood will implement a sharia state.. AND WE SUPPORTED THIS MESS.
    11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February  Now fully in control by Muslims, and Christians are being persecuted and run out.  This is an unmitigated failure. 

    12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.  EXCEPT we still do this... OOOPS

    13. Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.  This is absolute fiction.  NONE of our image abroad is improved at all.  They think we are FOOLS with a fool as President.
    16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025. that'll happen.  Why didn't he just mandate a million miles per gallon.  This was really really stupid.

    17. Coordinated International Response to Financial Crisis: To keep world economy out of recession in 2009 and 2010, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to emerging market countries, which kept them liquid and avoided crises with their currencies.  OH Yeah, other than Cypress and Europe and all that mess.  This has been a catastrophe of the first order.

    19. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.  Boy, we have really HURT China, right. They own us now... because they bought us.
    20. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.  WAIT.. that's not true.  HE has done NOTHING for returning vets.  NOTHING. Doesn't anyone read the news at all.  Vets are being thrown overboard only because it's illegal to kill them outright...yet.

    21. Tightened Sanctions on Iran: In effort to deter Iran’s nuclear program, signed Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (2010) to punish firms and individuals who aid Iran’s petroleum sector. In late 2011 and early 2012, coordinated with other major Western powers to impose sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks and with Japan, South Korea, and China to shift their oil purchases away from Iran.  WOW. that's really worked well hasn't it...NOT.
    22. Created Conditions to Begin Closing Dirtiest Power Plants: New EPA restrictions on mercury and toxic pollution, issued in December 2011, likely to lead to the closing of between sixty-eight and 231 of the nation’s oldest and dirtiest coal-fired power plants. Estimated cost to utilities: at least $11 billion by 2016. Estimated health benefits: $59 billion to $140 billion. Will also significantly reduce carbon emissions and, with other regulations, comprises what’s been called Obama’s “stealth climate policy.”  SO now energy prices will triple... but that's no problem, freezing alone in the dark and cold is always his plan.
    23. Passed Credit Card Reforms: Signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act (2009), which prohibits credit card companies from raising rates without advance notification, mandates a grace period on interest rate increases, and strictly limits overdraft and other fees.  RAISING RATES and making it impossible to get credit.  DUMB.

    24. Eliminated Catch-22 in Pay Equality Laws: Signed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, giving women who are paid less than men for the same work the right to sue their employers after they find out about the discrimination, even if that discrimination happened years ago.  Smoke and mirrors.  HE did nothing.

    25. Protected Two Liberal Seats on the U.S. Supreme Court: Nominated and obtained confirmation for Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic and third woman to serve, in 2009; and Elena Kagan, the fourth woman to serve, in 2010. They replaced David Souter and John Paul Stevens, respectively.  This is a slap in the face of true justice.  We can't be in worse hands.

    26. Improved Food Safety System: In 2011, signed FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, which boosts the Food and Drug Administration’s budget by $1.4 billion and expands its regulatory responsibilities to include increasing number of food inspections, issuing direct food recalls, and reviewing the current food safety practices of countries importing products into America.  This was done at the behest of big FOOD like Monsanto.  They bought and paid for this.

    27. Achieved New START Treaty: Signed with Russia (2010) and won ratification in Congress (2011) of treaty that limits each country to 1,550 strategic warheads (down from 2,200) and 700 launchers (down from more than 1,400), and reestablished and strengthened a monitoring and transparency program that had lapsed in 2009, through which each country can monitor the other.   OOPS didn't.  Russia now has free reign.  

    28. Expanded National Service: Signed Serve America Act in 2009, which authorized a tripling of the size of AmeriCorps. Program grew 13 percent to 85,000 members across the country by 2012, when new House GOP majority refused to appropriate more funds for further expansion.  Keep those brown-shirts coming. 

    29. Expanded Wilderness and Watershed Protection: Signed Omnibus Public Lands Management Act (2009), which designated more than 2 million acres as wilderness, created thousands of miles of recreational and historic trails, and protected more than 1,000 miles of rivers.  Except under Agenda 21 no one will be allowed to access this land.  It's an idea CHINA wants before it takes possession.

    30. Gave the FDA Power to Regulate Tobacco: Signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (2009). Nine years in the making and long resisted by the tobacco industry, the law mandates that tobacco manufacturers disclose all ingredients, obtain FDA approval for new tobacco products, and expand the size and prominence of cigarette warning labels, and bans the sale of misleadingly labeled “light” cigarette brands and tobacco sponsorship of entertainment events.  This was much ado about nothing... Who smokes anymore anyhow?

    31. Pushed Federal Agencies to Be Green Leaders: Issued executive order in 2009 requiring all federal agencies to make plans to soften their environmental impacts by 2020. Goals include 30 percent reduction in fleet gasoline use, 26 percent boost in water efficiency, and sustainability requirements for 95 percent of all federal contracts. Because federal government is the country’s single biggest purchaser of goods and services, likely to have ripple effects throughout the economy for years to come.   RIGHT.. and algae diesel costs 60 bucks a gallon... but hey it's free money. 

    33. Trimmed and Reoriented Missile Defense: Cut the Reagan-era “Star Wars” missile defense budget, saving $1.4 billion in 2010, and canceled plans to station antiballistic missile systems in Poland and the Czech Republic in favor of sea-based defense plan focused on Iran and North Korea. It's what PUTIN wanted... and guess what, he got it.  WE ARE OUT OF THERE.

    34. Began Post-Post-9/11 Military Builddown: After winning agreement from congressional Republicans and Democrats in summer 2011 budget deal to reduce projected defense spending by $450 billion, proposed new DoD budget this year with cuts of that size and a new national defense strategy that would shrink ground forces from 570,000 to 490,000 over the next ten years while increasing programs in intelligence gathering and cyberwarfare. Keep Vladamir happy.  Make us weak so when the Chinese invade we will be helpless.

    35. Let Space Shuttle Die and Killed Planned Moon Mission: Allowed the expensive ($1 billion per launch), badly designed, dangerous shuttle program to make its final launch on July 8, 2011. Cut off funding for even more bloated and problem-plagued Bush-era Constellation program to build moon base in favor of support for private-sector low-earth orbit ventures, research on new rocket technologies for long-distance manned flight missions, and unmanned space exploration, including the largest interplanetary rover ever launched, which will investigate Mars’s potential to support life.  No visionary efforts for us...noseriee.

    36. Invested Heavily in Renewable Technology: As part of the 2009 stimulus, invested $90 billion, more than any previous administration, in research on smart grids, energy efficiency, electric cars, renewable electricity generation, cleaner coal, and bio-fuels.   ALL OF WHICH NEVER DID NOR WILL WORK.

     39. Improved School Nutrition: In coordination with Michelle Obama, signed Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2010 mandating $4.5 billion spending boost and higher nutritional and health standards for school lunches. New rules based on the law, released in January, double the amount of fruits and vegetables and require only whole grains in food served to students.  Except the kids won't eat the crap they put before them.  Most of the "food" goes in the Garbage.

    40. Expanded Hate Crimes Protections: Signed Hate Crimes Prevention Act (2009), which expands existing hate crime protections to include crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation, gender, or disability, in addition to race, color, religion, or national origin.  More obedience to the homosexual agenda. It is now illegal to hate sin.

    41. Avoided Scandal: As of November 2011, served longer than any president in decades without a scandal, as measured by the appearance of the word “scandal” (or lack thereof) on the front page of the Washington Post.  GIVE ME A BREAK ... he's one scandal after another.  OF COURSE the WAPO doesn't use the word.. they work for him.  Fast and furious.  No prosecution of Black Panther thugs.  Solyndra.  AND AND AND... he's full of scandal.

    43. Created Web site run by independent board of inspectors general looking for fraud and abuse in stimulus spending, provides public with detailed information on every contract funded by $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Thanks partly to this transparency, board has uncovered very little fraud, and Web site has become national model: “The stimulus has done more to promote transparency at almost all levels of government than any piece of legislation in recent memory,” reports Governing magazine.   This is a joke.  HE spends like a drunken sailor and is the least transparent administration in HISTORY.

    44. Pushed Broadband Coverage: Proposed and obtained in 2011 Federal Communications Commission approval for a shift of $8 billion in subsidies away from landlines and toward broadband Internet for lower-income rural families.  I thought Clinton already did this..It's on my phone bill.  AND my old farm is wired for bear and no one there to use it.

    45. Expanded Health Coverage for Children: Signed 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Authorization Act, which allows the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to cover health care for 4 million more children, paid for by a tax increase on tobacco products which no one smokes.  This is a failure.

    46. Recognized the Dangers of Carbon Dioxide: In 2009, EPA declared carbon dioxide a pollutant, allowing the agency to regulate its production.  In other words STOP BREATHING... wait maybe that's what he really wants.

    47. Expanded Stem Cell Research: In 2009, eliminated the Bush-era restrictions on embryonic stem cell research, which shows promise in treating spinal injuries, among many other areas.  Except embryonic stem cells haven't helped anyone at all. Adult stem cells actually work.

    48. Provided Payment to Wronged Minority Farmers: In 2009, signed Claims Resolution Act, which provided $4.6 billion in funding for a legal settlement with black and Native American farmers who the government cheated out of loans and natural resource royalties in years past.  What a farce.  This did nothing for anyone.  All fluff.

    49. Helped South Sudan Declare Independence: Helped South Sudan Declare Independence: Appointed two envoys to Sudan and personally attended a special UN meeting on the area. Through U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice, helped negotiate a peaceful split in 2011.  YUP

    50. Killed the F-22: In 2009, ended further purchases of Lockheed Martin single-seat, twin-engine, fighter aircraft, which cost $358 million apiece. Though the military had 187 built, the plane has never flown a single combat mission. Eliminating it saved $4 billion. YUP

The ice age is almost done in Illinois. The Glacier in my back yard is receding. Slowly.

This is what Resurrection Sunday Church will be like...... WAIT WAIT... NO that's a picture of the crowd at a basketball game. Like the Elite 8 that will be played Sunday. Sports has replaced Jesus in Worship. (ask any Pastor who's services are at the same time as football). Sports is now our official secular religion. I reflected about how it was when I was a child. Good Friday was a day of somber worship. We spent most of the Afternoon in solemnity. Easter Sunday was an all day affair. The reality of what we were doing was not masked by the accoutrements of the day even if some argue of their pagan origins. SO, as you (and yes I might look in) sit in your Barcolounger Sunday afternoon... can you look past the pagan for a moment into the sacred? Is the sabbath rest obsolete now? Would Chariots of Fire have meaning today?
I was pitched on Amway years ago. I was evidently one of someone's six friends. I don't recall that much. BUT this guy, Dexter, purloined this phrase. It stuck with me. Out of everything..even an Amway circle pitch, some good comes. Don't let ANYONE steal your dream...
Forget that democracy thing... every despot moves on executive fiat... this is that

Did we mess up when we left??
He's right. We lost long ago when we allowed the deviants to define us down. Education, Media, Entertainment and eventually our whole culture. Unringing this bell is going to be impossible. The last defense was broken in November with the election of a democrat agenda starting with President Obama. A whole demonic wave was let loose. I wrote and spoke of it then and people thought I was being unreal. Now look at where we are. How far down will you allow the culture to descend? When spiritual leaders no longer had the courage to speak out against evil .. the restrainer was taken away. Here we are. Nothing short of a revolution will change this. Evil prevailed because good men decided to do nothing.
This is what I've been saying
No Opinion... just interesting


Check out the banner on this screen shot. You've gotta love NBC, consistent. Just like the trolls on my Facebook pages these thoughtful, enlightened, worldly friends of black people long as those blacks think and believe they way they're expected to. But if you're a pediatric neurosurgeon who happens to tow the conservative line, well then you're not enlightened - you're incapable of independent thought; you've been "blinded".

Zombie apocalypse MUST be close....
It is now legal for Monsanto to poison you and you can't sue them for doing so. I'm guessing they will get the contract on the concentration camp ovens when it come up for bid.
He's right, he's just wrongheaded about his blame. IF we had this right there would be an automatic desire to hire ANYONE with dark skin above anyone else. That will happen when the reputation that precedes a dark skin candidate was equal to those of Asian origins. IF you are an Asian and you show up on a job interview in the USA you automatically rise to the top in consideration for employment. When you answer the why, you will begin to solve the problem to this.

Putin wants to ban adoptions by gay couples. Tensions grew after a Russian orphan was adopted by a U.S. woman who concealed being gay & in a relationship with another woman. The couple split 2 years later & the custody battle began. Russian foreign minister is evaluating the psychological impact on the orphan. EVEN PUTIN CAN DO SOMETHINGS RIGHT
I know a LOT about this and will tell you that the farmland values you see have nothing whatever to do with productivity or return, it is all about asset protection and a place to place money that is vulnerable to government confiscation. FEAR drives this. When you don't trust your government... farmland goes thru the roof. If a government were to come into power that is reliable and trustworthy... farmland values would drop like a rock. It did under Reagan. I owned land in 1979 under Carter that was valued at $3000 per acre. Within two years under Reagan it dropped to $800 per acre. It might again if we don't implode as a nation first. It's all about people's confidence and most of us have zero confidence in the current administration.
“Imagine a country where not only are the borders secured by armed guards, but once you entered the country, if you even spoke about politics — at all — if you even mentioned anything politically, you would be deported. Imagine a country where everyone is required to be tracked all the time. Where all of these immigrants are constantly monitored. Imagine where the idea of immigrants even having a word on the internal politics of a country would be enough to get them deported.”

“I can imagine a country like that. That country is Mexico.”
Could never happen here... RIGHT? RIGHT? Never mind student debt of over a Trillion dollars in Debt. Or State and local governments owe $7.3 trillion in promises they've made that were never approved by taxpayers or 1.5 million not yet foreclosed houses still in flux. All this is not Federal Government money. This is money banks are owed. IF they don't collect it, it will have to come from somewhere. States can't print money. Neither can banks. SO...where do you think that money will come from? Your mattress is starting to look like a pretty good place to keep your stash about now.
DHS purchased millions of hollow-points with our dollars, purchased thousands of personnel carriers with our dollars, all for one purpose, -- to implant fear in our minds. Still they don’t have enough personnel to do whatever it is they WISH to do. Look back, what has actually happened other than a few ‘cherry-picked’ ambushes, a sure sign of being under-manned, it's PSYOPS using our dollars!

Rule #1 in “Rules For Radicals (Rumor is BHO has a copy): “Power is not only what you have but what your enemy thinks you have.” This is all “blowing-hard” while fighting his uphill battle against 300 million Americans with as many guns. It’s all a bunch of “smoke & jeers?”…Semper Fi
Did y'all have anything to do with this???
