Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

Written by a USMC Vet. (I can't argue with any of it. Passing it along as it was received.)

He wrote:

The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow travelers" have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch... The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

Our side ran two candidates who couldn't even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing "post Sandy" tribute that elevated the "Commander-in-Chief" to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn't need any help!)

People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to "white guilt" and political correctness... An American Veteran......... Semper-Fi

Some states are better to meet the opposite sex than others

When did our military become so picky?

You don't qualify if you are fat, a felon, not a HS grad, have a tattoo where it can be seen (Neck and Face), strange piercings (ear gauges), Drug User, can't pass a simple test and are not being treated for ADHD. Well that leaves out a lot of people. 71% of our young men and women between 17-34 are not eligible to join the Army. They don't qualify.

NOW...if it were up to me, I don't care about tattoos, Fat?, we'll fix that or you will die, ADHD... we'll keep your attention I promise, Ear Gauges (Your ears will heal), No HS diploma (we'll teach you and you'll have one when you leave), Felon? you'll be on a watch list but this is your chance for redemption. When I was young, if you committed a felonious offense joining up was a chance for redemption. We needed fodder for the cannons in Vietnam.

Back to Baseball

FIFA World Cup 2014 began on
Thursday, June 12
and ends on
Sunday, July 13

I thought the NCAA Final Four Countdown was long, I thought the NBA finals were protracted, some of these playoff sessions are crazy.. but a MONTH of SOCCER playoffs? HUH?

I already invested my 15 minutes.

From a fan. Five seconds to solve, no spoilers.

 Hint: Great, now I'm hungry.

De Train

You do know that the whole Obamacare fiasco is going to collapse don't you?

 What is sad is that in the process he has damaged and injured the best health care system in the world. Expensive and clumsy...but no sheik from Saudi Arabia flies into Canada, Germany or England for health care when they are sick. They fly to Cleveland or Rochester. WHY?.. best in the world. We need reform.. not destruction


I heard someone talk about King Belshazzar and the writing the wall yesterday. In Chapter 5 verse 6 it describes his reaction to seeing this disembodied hand reaching thru the veil and writing on the wall. As I read the verse.. I saw something that I don't think most would see. It says, "Then the king's countenance was changed in him, and his thoughts troubled him; and the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another". In other translations it says the muscles on his loins were weakened. Now I can see how a man might go pale, white as a ghost. I know knees knocking makes sense. 

BUT WHAT OF THIS LOOSE LOIN? THEN suddenly I got it. You will too. If you lose all muscle control from fear in your loins.. what happens? Loins are the area above your thigh and below your stomach. That area. Let's just say, a Depends might have made life easier right then.. but the Bible doesn't rub out noses in it (thankfully).


  I have been thinking about this since I heard it.  Truman was famous for saying the Buck STOPS Here.  No victim he. If everything that happens to you is someone elses fault, if you are always being taken advantage of, if you know for sure you would have won if the other guy hadn't cheated.. you are a victim. 

I am going to be bold.  IF you see yourself as victimized by any person, group, race, institution or organization, you are never going to rule.  You will always remain the tail and not the head. Being the victim gives power to someone who may not even know he or she has any.  You lost already.

I think of this because our President is famous for being a victim and telling everyone else that they too are victimized.  He is creating losers in his own image.  A whole generation of victims have forfeited their destiny by the lies of the age.  No one can be a victim without their consent.  You CAN refuse. 

IF you want to be the leader (Ruler) of any company, institution, nation, church, group or organization you cannot play the role of Victim.  If you do you cannot rule.

The two are incompatible. 

 It's not what happens, it's what our response to what happens that makes us a victim. Bad things happen to people all the time. Things happen that are horrid. Things happen that could destroy them... yet people emerge from these very difficult situations with victory and overcoming. 

 Here's a secret. You will NOT rule and reign with Christ (future tense). You already rule and reign UNLESS you consent to being a victim. Victimization is not what happens, it's how we deal with it. 

I have had a lot of hard things in my life.. I could complain... I refuse to be a victim. Victory is the opposite of victim. You can't have both. Once more... how you deal with setbacks, difficulties, undesirable situations, rejection, pain, disease and those who try to manipulate you that determines your level of consent. Victimization is a choice. I choose not to be one. Building a bridge and getting over it is a good way to live.

I can go either way

The two (so far) leading GOP candidates for 2016 against anyone so far the Dems put up for President are Rand Paul and Ben Carson. I'm really OK with either one. Both are moral decent men with a solid moral compass unlike anyone in our current administration.


I don't know what it means... but HBO and Cinemax had a free preview on our sat system the last few days. I looked at the fare. ALL OF IT. Nothing was of any interest to me at all. I don't know why culturally I am so disconnected. I just don't find movies entertaining anymore.

Win in the sweet spot

Truth is... it's impartial

The theory of man-made global warming is based on spurious science, phony statistics and outright lies; so it’s no surprise that a known liar and propagandist for the regime and green energy boondoggles, none other than Secretary of State John Kerry, has pulled another bogus figure out of his pompous hat. Not to be outdone, President Barack Obama also got into the act. In a speech to graduates at the University of California at Irvine, he compared climate change skeptics to those who would say the moon is made of cheese. These are typical propaganda ploys employed by statists seeking to drown out and stifle dissent.

no words...

Not a big Walmart fan..

But I like crackpot left wing journalism less

YUP>. its come to that

30 years ago were asked to sponsor in a refugee from Romania.

 This was before the breakup of the Soviet Union. He arrived from Romania on the airplane. We took him home. Gave him everything he wanted. It went OK.. but there were cultural differences. We tried to teach him english. It was a stressful time. He eventually left and is living out west.

One thing I remember was his contention that he was an engineer. We took him to another Romanian American to see if there was any potential to leverage what he "Knew" to a job suitable to his ability. We learned that Engineer in Romania is about what a janitor is here. They go to school for a long time. Get a degree. In the end they learn how to change a light bulb and plug in an appliance, but that's about it. In other words his years of schooling amounted to teaching him to conform, to be a good party member, to behave and take the peanuts the central committee passed out.

What brings this up are the phony diplomas given to people today with zero skills and then the Ponzi scheme expands as they tell people that if you just got a masters or a doctorate you would be set for life. Instead they end up settling for the peanuts the puppet masters pass out. I hate the kind of slavery the left imposes on it's willing participants to keep them on the plantation. But that's how they keep getting re elected.

Socialism depends on Uninformed Unskilled Ignorance to succeed. Truth is power but you have to believe the truth.


What happens to us and how we react to those things.

We only really have control of ONE of those. Experiences divided by Expectations equal Disappointment. When disappointments come and we handle them without wisdom we amplify the negative consequence.

"Most People Are About As Happy As They Make Up Their Minds To Be." Quote from Abraham Lincoln.

"It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters". Epictetus

"Things are neither good nor bad but thinking they are makes it so". William Shakespeare (Rosenkrantz in Macbeth)

The events that happen to us are neutral. Our neighbor fell down the stairs a day ago. He is going to spend the rest of his life in an nursing home. How he thinks of this will make all the difference. We buried another neighbor yesterday. He had been unwell a long time. He made the decision to share his misery with all. He died very much alone and miserable.

I contrast that to a wonderful Christian Woman I knew. She had both legs amputated, was in pain, and yet was one of the most sunny happy people you ever saw. To the day she died she shared the love of Jesus. She never ever complained or argued with her pain. I was sad and yet when she died my first words were Praise God. (her suffering was over)

We need to restore the art of Stoicism in our culture. Stop the complaining. Stop the self pity. Stop the temper tantrums every time something doesn't go our way. Life is short.. live it well.. find joy. Find Peace.

By the way, that woman was my wife's grandmother... Ruth. No second hand here.

Why I Yell

Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: Behold, the days are coming, when all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have stored up till this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Nothing shall be left, says the LORD. And some of your own sons, who will come from you, whom you will father, shall be taken away, and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.” Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the LORD that you have spoken is good.” For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my days.”

(Isaiah 39:5-8 ESV)

There are days when I feel like Hezekiah. I want to give up. I want let it all go to hell in a handbasket. IF I live for 20 more years I might think at least there will be peace and security in my days. But then I look in the mirror. I think about my kids. About my grandchildren. About the generations to come and I say.. NO... I will stand hard against the decline, the evil, the demons who would destroy us.

I am not content to let it all go down the drain without crying out
