MONDAY THOUGHTS 1

monday1

Greetings this Monday; some of us decompressing over the weekend depending on what we did. I guess the big news of the week going through the weekend has been the visit of Pope Francis. He has gone home now but as Monday arises I can see a division of both Catholics and Protestants, liberals and conservatives over Sir Francis’s visit to my country.

I can only offer my opinion as to why this is, why one man can divide when such a visit should be unity. First to my Catholic friends there is no disrespect to the Catholic doctrine on my part I’m only giving my assessment of Francis’s visit. I know Catholics will say they are not the cause of such division and I also know Pope Francis has an agenda and I’m sure has no plans to change that agenda.

The reason why there is and maybe continue to be a division is simply Pope Francis is a socialist and he brought his Marxist ideas with him. If you don’t think Sir Francis is a socialist you need to lift your head out of the sand.

I personally felt if you get a chance to speak in front of Congressmen and Senators and you are a professed man of God you need to preach the Gospel not preach your political agenda. Open the speech up with prayer for one; condemn abortion and the funding of groups that would sell murdered body parts it’s not enough to just say all life is precious when Planned Parenthood is buying  Lamborghini’s off the organs of our unborn children.

A statement was made that Pope Francis’s visit to America was a slap in conservative’s faces and I have to agree with that, it’s also a big letdown of one person not preaching the Gospel.

I know Catholics by in large love this man so do liberals and that alone sets off red flags in my direction. What is most disheartening to me was a few comments I made on twitter this week and the comments it received by what I considered as good conservative men of God that happened to be Catholic. It broke my heart to hear such comments I will not go into details and who left the comments but if you know what the word idolatry means there is a big concern here for me and for Christians that praise one man might need to do a personal heart to God’s heart check on themselves.

The other big news item of course is Donald Trump, a few of my aunts and uncles have been out my way for a visit this week asked me what I thought of Mr. Trump and my statement was “I wish he would leave and let people like Cruz and Jindal takeover”

If you think Trump is the GOP saving grace you could be right but I don’t think he is. Like Jeb Bush said on Fox News (no I’m not a Bush fan) check back with me in two months and see where we are, Responding to Trumps popularity.

I agree with Jeb I really don’t think Trump can debate well. I mean watch him in a debate, he calls people names, says I can do better than you, almost childlike responses.

Is Trump better than any democrat well yeah that’s a no brainer. It’s also a testament to a candidate that gets into it with Trump like what Rubio has been doing, shows me Rubio needs to drop out he is way too inexperienced to be running a campaign as is Trump. As a Christian Trump is all over the place, I like how he has pandered to the Christian GOP group but I’m not sold on if he really knows who Jesus is.

Boehner resigns yippy it about time don’t let actually let the door hit you as you leave you have been an embarrassment to the GOP and have done nothing to further the advancement of America. When fools like Harry Reid say it’s a loss for Boehner to leave that is when you know it’s time for fools like Boehner to leave, McConnell needs to follow right behind him.

These are my thoughts this Monday feel free to add your own and enjoy the week.

 

INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS STATES RIGHTS

satan

Looking at the Indiana issue over the last few days I see the issues of importance for both side of the ideological and political isle the question is do individuals and states have freedom and rights of their own or is the federal government the final word when it interprets cases and are they always correct.

I look at Indiana as this is a states’ rights issue upholding the personal freedom issues of an individual’s moral or ethical objections and the federal government should stay out of the way.

Now the RFRA was enacted in 1993 and endorsed by then president Clinton, Congressman Chuck Schumer and Senator Ted Kennedy all three leftist.

It’s my guess this was an act to try and sure up the Clinton religious voting base to show America democrats that states had this right also I believe this was to sure up the American Indian vote because the bill affected Native American religious liberties as well this was nothing but a vote grab bill and had nothing to do with religious freedom.

In 1997 part of the bill was overturned and in 2003 the act was amended Different states do use this law and can enact it based on their interpretation of the bill.

To me states have these rights and have the right to enact them the governor and the state representatives are by the way representing the people of that state. 

It is a libertarian idea but individuals both owners and customers reserve the right to sell or buy from a individual based on creed or belief which is more of an ideology not always religion but a creed.

The federal government in the 1964 civil rights act made it illegal to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex and national order and I guess one can make a argument that creed can be religious but one can make the same argument that creed is not.

I believe our florist and bakers that have refused to give services to what they feel are morally objectionable on the bases of their idea of what is moral what is right and wrong to them.

The individual is refusing to give services based or doing business with somebody they do not agree with whether it be their belief, lifestyle or what they are participating in and the state is upholding this right to do so feeling there is no discrimination going on just a disagreement in belief or creed.

Should that person who has the business and is refusing to serve just coexist, get along and let cooler heads prevail. Should the customer do the same, go somewhere else like Costco or a supermarket or just have a wedding cake made then add on their own creed or belief after they have purchased the item, getting along and letting cooler heads prevail?

Should we force private people to create something that they feel is morally religiously wrong? If they refuse to serve or create do you call it discrimination.

Can you change the color of your skin, can you change your race, you can change your religion but should you have to?

Should you be so bold to advertise your religion for the sole purpose to cause strife? What about belief, do you have the right to refuse based on what another person views of what is right and wrong and should you be so bold to advertise that belief on the sole purpose to cause strife?

Would this be the same argument if Anton Lavey from the church of Satan or two people that practice Wiccan came to a baker and asked them to make a cake with a broken cross and derogatory terms about God or Jesus? Would you insist the bakery make this cake for this celebration of marriage?

On the same issue what if a bride and groom asked a homosexual florist to arrange flowers with a tag on them proclaiming Matthew 19: 4-6, does the florist have the right to refuse service based on they have an objection to that scripture?

Overlooking the RFRA and not allowing states to enact a provision takes away from the sovereignty of each state something I believe our framers wanted each state to have. If we can’t uphold states rights that try and uphold individual rights then why have individual states?

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY #3

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY JANUARY 19TH

It’s Monday again and time for some more Illogical and absurd articles from main stream media. Somewhat of a slow news week so the progressives kind of pushed the throttle down on a few of these articles rehashing some old ideas that they would love us to pay for or make illegal.

First up from the Huffington Post “Charlie Hebdo Editor Slams News Organizations for Not Publishing their Cartoons” Now the gist here is editor Gerard Biard feels that if the main stream media really is free speech they should have reported and showed their cartoons in Charlie Hebdo in a solidarity move to show the free world is not afraid of terrorism.

charlie-hebdo-frontpage

Ok let’s understand who the main stream media is, they make up of cowards that shout from a glass door. Main stream media has no problem standing up for freedom of speech and expression when they know it won’t get them killed. They are not afraid of Christians or Buddhist because they know Christians won’t retaliate but with Islam they are afraid.

Biard states every time they draw a cartoon of Mohammad or God they defend freedom of speech and I say no you don’t. Every time you draw a cartoon blaspheming God or any other religious symbol you are doing just that blaspheming a symbol that somebody holds important.

If you have no believes in anything then it makes it easy for you to make the statement your defending freedom of speech but look at it this way. If I were to tell unflattering embellishments about you or your family you might get offended you might even try and sue me.

Charlie Hebdo is a vulgar magazine at times, I’m not going to storm the doors and shoot your entire cartoonist but you insult my faith at times and I see nothing but insults not freedom in what you do.

Next article from Time “Pope Francis Opposes Contraceptives During Address of Millions in Philippines” I’m mainly mention this article by Time on the basis of I’m following the Pope due to his embracing of climate change and environmentalism which is nothing short than communism and communism embraces population control.

Pope Francis waves from the popemobile after leading a Mass at Rizal Park in Manila

Progressives and leftist love it when Pope Francis preaches about climate change and compromising on evolution but they hate it when people preach about birth control something very important to the Catholic faith.

This is where progressives despise Catholics and Christians for even thinking people take reproductive responsibility. Time keeps it tame but doe quote one person here to dig at the Popes stand on birth control.

They quote Jun Chura a former street child “Many terrible things happened to (street children) like drugs and prostitution,” said a former street child named Jun Chura. “Why is God allowing such things to happen? And why are there only very few people helping us?”

My response to Chura is I might ask you the same question, why are you allowing this to happen. You see the Pope and the Catholic/Christian church do not want to punish people by taking away their contraceptive tools they want you to take responsibility and follow God’s will.

Even if you can financially afford ten children does not mean you have ten children, can you emotionally afford ten children. Psalms 127-128, God blesses one that has children but he does require us to walk with him to be successful. Basically this, if you’re not willing to fear and walk with God then you just might limit your success.

The blog from Slate “French Government: Protesters Don’t Understand Our Values (But We’ll Imprison People for Speech)” is kind of interesting on the account that not only do Muslims and Islam do not get French values but nor does Slate and nor do they get values and freedom.

 protest

France has some interesting laws that are very free when it comes to speech but very strict when speech and expression becomes treason. France allows freedom of speech to a degree but when it become treasonous it can levy a stiff penalty in jail time something America seems not to practice thus is why Slate probably just does not get it.

The issue is Islam has no clue what true freedom is, both the Islamist practicing countries have little or no freedom and the religion its self has no freedom either.

Most progressive’s lack the understanding of freedom and values as well, feeling a government entitled society is freedom they just do not get free will and rugged individualism and their value system has no value.

The French are trying to play sides, embracing European socialism and still trying to stay as a free state can be quite complicated and will yield a very unfair society.

US NEWS and World Reports “U.S. Stands Alone on Lack of Paid Leave” published this blog on how the U.S. just won’t increase its taxes on the American People and pay for mothers to stay home with their children.

paid

At this point pretty much if you’re a mother or father you have to option to stay at home for a few months of bonding time without pay.

Those of you that can afford it do so, some have special insurance that pay the whole time and some don’t so they have to come back to work early seems unfair.

Should not a mom and a dad bond with their new born child why are the American people not willing to be taxed enough so all moms and dads at least the moms be paid to stay home?

You have to put yourself in the eyes of the employer; I know that evil corporation you work for that just makes tons of money off your sweat. It’s very hard on a company to have to replace somebody for a short time then give that position back.

The concept of free trade and independence is lost if a private business cannot do anything without the federal or state permission.

There is a compromise that our government could make but wont. If staying home and bonding with your child is so important and I believe it is as far as the mother is concerned then why not lower taxes.

Lower income tax maybe end the income tax as we know it, lower gas tax, lower property tax make it so a two parent family can afford for only one to work.

I know that does not work for everyone since everyone makes different pay something progressives would love to change but that’s called communism.

For the most part it would work if we lowered taxes so families could take home more money and have one parent stay home nurturing the children I know it worked for our family.

It’s easy for progressives to cry on this issue saying it’s not fair but their hypocrisy is huge on family values.

They want taxes to increase so both parents have to work, use that tax money so both can stay at home for a short while and bond then send that child to government daycare and public school.

It just seems smarter to lower taxes and have the parent stay home and bond and develop their child instead of having the tax payer do it.

Solon atheist goes all out in “Bill Maher is right about religion: The Orwellian ridiculousness of Jesus, and the truth about moral progress” This is a very long and tedious blog that hates all over Christianity again fear of Islam goes into play and a double standard is used but the writer Michael Shermer does attack the Jews and Mormons as well but I’m sure in his mind anyone that uses the Bible or Biblical ideas is bad.

2 Seat Interview: Bill Maher and Ralph Nader, Author, Unstoppable Panel left to right: Andrew Ross Sorkin - Financial Columnist, New York Times, Co - Anchor, CNBC’s “Squawk Box” ; Doug Heye -  Fmr. Comm. Director, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Fmr

Basically Bill Maher is never really quoted but for those of you that don’t know Maher has said that God is a serial killer in the Old Testament.

Both Maher and Shermer don’t back any historical data up but take Biblical text out of order it’s mainly Shermer’s lack of understanding of Old Testament Biblical history of Israel and the tribes and societies that surrounded the Jews.

When you deal with atheists that bring this kind of hate to the table it’s like talking to a brick wall. They use this double standard to hate on Biblical belief and Christianity because they are afraid of Islam.

Christians are an easy target because true Christians practice peace through Christ something Maher and Shermer conveniently don’t read in the New Testament or even mention in their rants.

The truth is Maher and Shermer hate Jews and Christians because we try and live Gods truth, no we are not perfect we make mistakes but God forgives us something that Shermer I would bet hates to admit.

In Shermer’s eyes Christians live this smug holier than thou hypocritical life and they can’t stand that. If he really knew the truth and that is I don’t always live a holy life and yes I’m a hypocrite at times but every day I ask for forgiveness and every day God forgives me

“Meet the Right-Wing Judge Who Just Screwed over the People Taking Care of Your Grandma” From Alternet the same magazine that is willing to expose this judge but wont print Charlie Hebdo. This story is not about a judge but about a union that wants its workers paid more simple as that.

Nursing-home-photo

This story is near to me because I work in health care and at one time I worked in nursing/convalescent homes. I can say to you without a doubt the people that work in these nursing homes do not get paid much but the work is not that technical.

Whether you agree with this judge’s decision or not I will say this, if you really are concern for your loved ones you need to pay for their care because government insurance and that is who is paying for the majority of these people does not pay well meaning the nursing homes don’t get reimbursed well from social security or Medicare.

If you want the best care for your loved ones you’re going to have to pay out of pocket. I know that seems odd all those years of paying in to social security and it does not take care of your parents well welcome to the real world FDR was wrong and your loved ones fell for it.

Finally from Common Dreams “Supreme Court Could Settle Marriage Equality Fight Once and For All” Yes a few people that are not elected and have a job for life will decide on the not marriage equality but decide on the dismantling of God’s union between a man and a woman.

This is why voting is important; all these judges were appointed by a president and allowed in by our representatives that we voted for.

do_not_deny

When it comes to the defense in marriage I use Matthew 19: 4-6 and I refer you to 1 Corinthians 7: 1-16.

The best hope at this time is for the Supreme Court to make this a states rights issue something Jeb Bush used to get out of stating whether he is either for or against the homosexual movement.

The big question then will be if a gay marriage that is legal in California will it still be good in say like Oklahoma. Hugh Hewitt made a good statement on his radio show a few days ago stating that you may have a legal conceal carry permit in Texas but that permit is not valid in New York.

No matter what happens the fall and decline of the defense of marriage is here but it’s not the end. Abortion is legal but we still fight and pray for that issue daily and this issue is no different.

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY #2

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY: EPISODE 2

danger_sign1

It’s Monday work week has started but like most places of work we all like to hang round the watering hole or at lunch time and kick around some of the reads of the week so here are a few I picked out from some most illogical and absurd magazines and blogs.

First article from Time “Most Energy Drink Companies Market to Minors” I respond to this mainly on the idea that this is just another concept and way to regulate Americans, punish companies that make money.

Bottom line energy drinks make big money and our government wants it. When you read the article you see only the progressives want to indulge in this and this is nothing but a money grab in the name of the children because you the parent can’t control your child.

college-debt

“Obama Community College Plan Builds on State Efforts” From U.S. News our president is itching to spend more money and keep people out of the work force at least I see it that way. The president wants to hitch a ride from Tennessee and pay for the first two years of community college.

The feds will pay the first 70% and Obama is hoping the rest of the 49 states will pick up the remaining 30%. This means increased taxes to pay for such a program it also takes people out of the work force while they attend collage full time.

Why anyone thinks paying for others education forcefully is a good idea is beyond me. Student loans has been a bad idea and a burden on society, maybe a volunteer program for people to donate so local communities or states can educate would be a better idea but we all know few would donate to such a program so let’s just force everyone with their taxes and in the name of education.

mitt

From the Politico “Mitt Romney Says He’s Considering a 2016 Run” Not a bad article from the progressive Politico pretty much just the facts ma’am. Why, why, why Mitt, you’re a two time looser you lost to McCain a looser among losers. Yes you were right about Obama but so was I so was every other conservative for all that matters.

Mitt you’re a moderate liberal republican and we don’t want that, conservatives don’t want that. Mitt are you wondering why the main stream media wants you to run…. Because you lose elections. Please Mitt do us a favor and doesn’t run, tell your buddy Jeb also and your fellow buddy Governor Chris to do the same.

CommitteeHearing

From Solon “Ted Cruz & The New McCarthyism Dangerous Response to the Atrocity in Paris”. Written by Elias Isquith and this guy doesn’t even know and understand what McCarthyism is. Basically he’s trying to cash in on Chris Mathews ranting that Cruz is the reincarnation of Joseph McCarthy.

Isquith doe not name one thing that even remotely similar to McCarthy. What this is about, Isquith is a flaming progressive that dislikes Ted Cruz so he like Matthews calls him names.

For those of you that don’t know who Joseph McCarthy is well know your history and also know McCarthy was correct on communism but just attacked his idea in a bad way. There are many other names worse than being called McCarthyism like Communist. Isquith and Matthews are Communist in thought and they know that and that is why they despise Cruz and call names with no basis.

poor

And finally from our progressive writers at Alternet “College Professor Has a Masters…. And is Living in Poverty” This article just goes to prove you don’t have to spend the money and time for a higher education to make a nice living in the county. Alissa Quart follows a college professor that is a single mother with a disabled child and how she is in poverty yet I don’t believe making $24K a year constitute poverty.

I guess we are to feel sorry that a successful student can’t make it in the real world work force. Let see I didn’t get higher education yet my wife and I bring in a tat over 100K a year and we pay big taxes on that. We are able to own a home, two cars and two motorcycles and we pay our bills on time and the real shocker is my wife and I both work for college graduates with the same degree that our $24K professor does; choices it came to choices and how we went about making those choices work for us.

END OF THE WEEK JANUARY 2

END OF THE WEEK THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL

JOHN

January week two and another odd week at that, the elephant in the room is Paris and the attack on freedom of speech and freedom in general. There is more to this and tons of articles out there Brietbart.com captures the headlines and as the days have gone by more opinions come to the forefront.

Most everyone is outraged and for good reason, nowhere in the Christian theology is this condoned. When Jesus confronted blasphemy he never used deadly force, he drove out the blasphemous and set an example of how to respect God.

God does not command this behavior and Jesus never taught it, forgive and turn the other cheek kind of opposite of kill the offender. Another article by the Catholic league gives a response to the attack. Mind you the magazine Charlie Hebdo is an equal opportunity offender of religious blasphemy, they have offended the Catholic Church over and over again some very nasty stuff against nuns and priest.

hate

The Catholic league’s Bill Donohue gives a somewhat odd response and some like myself can take it as though Charlie Hebdo not only should have expected this but kind of deserved this. Donohue goes on to say he has himself protested some of the defaming of the church and God but has never once felt like killing anyone and of course one would expect that answer he should have just kept his mouth shut if you ask me.

On the same note this article from the USA Today’s Anjem Choudary that can read similar to Donahue’s but again Donahue and the Catholic church do not and will never condone violence under any circumstance where as Anjem obviously does.

This was a sad day to say the least and we must now except that in the west we not only can say good things about religion and God we can even say bad things as well but these third world countries like North Korea, middle east and some of Africa you cannot they are still in the 1st century and have no concept of individuality and freedom so seller beware.

I look at Christianity as an individual relationship that requires you to be accountable for the decisions you make. God does not condone nor does Jesus teach violence towards offenders. We do not attack them in masses but instead we pray for them in masses both the offenders and the offensive.

Next up speaker of the house John boring Boehner gets elected speaker once again they just don’t learn folks but my question is will we learn. Although some current GOP conservatives who voted for boring John state it’s what we need to do to get stuff done. Bill Bennet former secretary of education under Reagan said on his radio show a few days ago it does not matter if Boehner or Trey Gowdy is speaker with Obama in the white house its bad news all around and I’m inclined to agree.

I wrote a blog a few months ago stating that 2014 win for the GOP could mean a loss in 2016 if our Congress and Senate do not represent the people like they were voted in for then we are in for more bad days I’m afraid.

Two blogs I post this week one going over true freedom and how in order to have true freedom we will have to embrace our fears; we cannot have the government safety blanket and still have freedom.

Next blog I went over a good article from NPR of all places and broke down how we do not have to follow our wants and desires that lead us to immoral or unethical behavior but God can help us choose a good bath if we let him help us.

Some good reads: From Charisma Magazine Duck Dynasty’s the beardless Robertson Al and his wife get asked how they would respond if their grandchild came out gay.

Also from Charisma a good vid that has atheist wanting an apology for showing the video correlating religion and democracy.

Another article about the Pope embracing climate change, if Francis does embrace climate change it will put Catholics in a bind since he is promoting communism whether he believes it or not it’s nothing short of communism.

Hope everyone around our great nation is staying warm while we here in California enjoy the high life; don’t be jealous we pay big for this kind of weather. Enjoy the next week and stay safe friends.

Mr T.

HOW WE GOT HERE

911

HOW WE GOT HERE

The small topic of the week has been Christians and the tolerance of torture so I would like to throw my two cents in to the topic as well because I believe there is more to this than what we want to admit.

This all started last week when my Senator from California Dianne Feinstein in my opinion committed treason and published the CIA reports on our interrogation practices used on war criminals from the 911 attack of 2001.dianne-feinstein

When Feinstein brought those interrogation tactics out into the public she not only put every American in this country at risk she put every American dignitary and every service men and women in the armed forces that serve around the world at risk as well not to mention the free world.

Feinstein should be impeached, arrested tried and sent to prison for treason for putting Americans at risk.

Now with that off my chest let us proceed, I believe this whole situation of torture to get much needed information to find Osama Bin Laden is very involved and cannot be just looked over as a bunch of CIA agents torturing prisoners of war because president George W Bush said it was fine.

The debate should Christian’s condone torture is a no brainer no they should not but we need to look at what got us to this time in our lives that we had to use torture to keep our country safe and exact revenge on the over 2500 people killed in the September 11th 2001 attack.

There are two levels to look at, one being the political and the other being the Christian view and both are valid and important to look at so let’s precede to understanding how we arrived at not only torture but revenge

First we will look at the political side of how we got to torture and what could have been done to avoid it. It started back in the 1980’s when Senator Charlie Wilson from Texas saw how the people of Afghanistan where getting slandered by the Russians.

Wilson convinced president Reagan and with the help of some other military geniuses acquired stinger missiles in the hands of Afghan rebels to fight against the invading communist Russians.wilson4

This was a win win kill for America, our stinger missiles helped the Afghan rebels defeat the Russians and forced them to retreat from Afghanistan. This also helped the Americans win the cold war by causing Russia to spend more money on a losing battle ultimately killing the Russian government and loosing the cold war.

When president Regans term ended George H Bush won the 1988 presidency. When the cold war ended Bush 41 stopped funding the Afghans allowing for the extreme Islam to make their move in the region.

In 1992 President Bill Clinton won the presidency and in 1993 the first attack on the world trade center was tried killing 6 people and injuring 1000. In 2000 the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen killing 17 service men.

uss cole

The 1993 attack was a declaration of war, the 2000 USS Cole attack was a declaration of war and yet President Clinton stood by and did nothing. What should have been the beginning of trying to stop radical Islamic terrorist in 1993 became the killing of 17 service men with the attack on the USS Cole.

In 2000 President George W Bush was elected president and 8 months in to his first term September 11th  2001 20977 people died when radical Islamic terrorist flew American planes into the twin towers, the pentagon and the attempt of what might have been the US White House.010914-F-8006R-002

This should have been stopped back in 1993; Bush 41 and Clinton should have never stopped supplying the Afghan rebels with missiles they were friends of the U.S. and were keeping extreme Islam from growing in the region. But because our Presidents forgot our Middle Eastern allies and did not declare war on radical Islam in 1993 or 2000, September 11 attacks happened and the US military went to war.

Bush 43 sent our soldiers to war but did not ask the American People to invest themselves in this war, we were told to go shopping and live our lives and because of this in my opinion is why we forgot we were attacked.

When prisoners of war were captured they were not interrogated in the battlefield and they were not tried and sentenced to death in the battlefield. They were shipped to American soil and that put all Americans at danger with this action, those prisoners were interrogated on American soil and I believe that was a mistake.

In 2011 Seal team 6 attacked and killed Osama Bin Laden and President Obama who like President Clinton did nothing took full credit for the killing of Bin Laden.

It was the tactics employed by the CIA years before President Obama was elected that killed Bin Laden not the expert foreign policy of President Obama or Hilary Clinton or lack there of.

As you can see politically this all may have been avoided way back in the early 1990’s but it didn’t happen. We had defunded the Afghan rebels with Bush 41, We had a week president in Clinton and we had and president that refused to let the American people invest themselves in the Iraq and Afghan war and for that we are here in a place where we had to tolerate torture in order to keep our country safe and try and win a war that Americans had forgotten.

In 2008 we elected a president that is undoing everything that we went to war for in 2001 and now Christians in the Middle East are dying, children are having their heads cut off for believing in Jesus this is where we are so where will we go from here.

Now the Christian view, in my opinion no Christian tolerates or condones torture. For a long time now America has been pulling away from God, sometimes a lot and sometimes not at all but for the most part America has slowly pulled away from God but God has not turned his back on us.

We legalized the killing of unborn children and our country condones biblical immorality. The world is starting to no longer live in a black and white world and our country is mimicking this by excusing bad behavior. Doing wrong is no longer necessarily bad and our feelings are more important than following God’s moral law.

As Christians we too are attacked and are blind to God’s moral law and his ethical behavior. We make excuses for bad behavior and we do in the name of God’s love.

Christians are being attacked not always physically but mentally and socially and it’s wearing down on some. God’s love does not include condoning immorality, it does not condone putting other God’s before him.

There is a time when Christians have to stand up for what it right, what is moral and what is ethical the 10 commandment are not the 10 suggestions.

The more Christians give into changing God’s natural law, his moral law and ethical behavior the more division we create amongst ourselves. Satan is convincing Christians that we should not judge sin. Since we all sin we should just accept one another as we are and sin equally. The 10 commandment are just rules to live by.

This division Lucifer has created is causing Christians to lose common ground with each other. If we lose common ground with each other we are no longer practice Christianity but only practice religion and there will be no ground to stand together on.

As our country pulls away from God, his moral law and ethical behavior we then lose our faith in our country and in each other. It’s a division between the people and the government and if we demand our government to be secular and not follow God’s moral law and ethical behavior then why should we expect anything less than torture.

Our country was once strong in God, our military was week but we continued to grow none the less. Our country is now strong in government and week in God in my opinion will continue to get weaker as long as we continue to walk away from God.

Bottom line is as a Christian you can be upset and mad about what this country has done to try and protect not only you but over 300 million people that live in America but the fault does not lie with one person it lies with all of us. We are all to blame for this and if we don’t stop walking from God but instead to God we can expect more of this kind of behavior to come.

END OF THE WEEK DECEMBER 2

END OF THE WEEK, THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL

my day

End of the week again halfway through December and almost the end of the year. As I type this we here in Nor Cal and Northern Nevada are supposed to be in the mist of what is dubbed the storm of the century and outside my window it’s just cloudy with maybe a promise of more rain to come. Even more reason why I beg people to not put your trust of weather and climate from man it will always bite you, sometimes hard sometimes just a nip but it will always bite you.

In the news Jonathan Gruber the smartest man in MIT that helped build the ACA (Obama Care) and calling the average American stupid faced some payback justice with a hearing on Capitol Hill. What is even more disturbing is that Gruber is now on record as saying that abortion is a “social good” due to the claim that it reduces the number of “marginal children” what is the definition of marginal children well think, the progressive ideology is saying poor people don’t count and they need abortion to keep more poor children from being introduced into our society that cost us and our government more dollars, kind of sad that one would view a life based on reducing its cost instead of life as a miracle and joyous that should be saved and protect at all cost.

Our smartest woman in California Dianne Feinstein put most everyone and all of our foreign dignitaries and military men and women at risk when she released the senate CIA report a few days ago. The report just stated what we all knew with regards to torture being done to capture war criminals in regards to our September 11th 2001 attack in New York City. 911-conspiracyAmerica did what it needed to do, if anything we should have done more. Bush failed us in the fact he did not allow Americans to invest themselves more into the 911 attacks like America did after the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941. I believe because of this a division was allowed to happen and Americans quickly forgot why we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Some 13 years later some view this invasion a mistake and I believe if Bush had made this more of a personal attack on each American and his and hers Freedom we would have a different view and maybe had a less decisive government that seems to attack our freedom for power.

This week I published two blogs first one entitled I BLAME YOU MR. FARRAKHAN, MR. SHARPTON AND MR. JACKSON; I blame the deaths of Travon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown on the lack of leadership that Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have brought to the American Black community. Second blog WE WOULD MISS YOU is based off a post that a FB friends posted. Something that is real in the hearts of certain people but is rarely looked at from their point of view and I felt it needed to be said so those who suffer with anxiety, depression, and loneliness would know there are people out there that do care.

Movie to see this Christmas month is a good one called “It happened on 5th Avenue” The Christmas movies should start churning out about now and this is a good one. Very much like “It’s a wonderful life” as a matter of fact Frank Capra was offered the movie and turned it down. It starts off a bit slow but stick with it because the middle half to the end it really gets going and although it’s a bit 1947 corny at times it drives home some real good points about love, greed and the pursue of freedom.5th

Not a bad week this week gave me and I hope you were dealt the same. I’ll be heading into the new week working a bit then off to deliver some gifts to the family and hopefully enjoying the movie Gods and Kings. I know it will be Biblically unsound but with Bale as Moses it should be at least entertaining and that my friend is the lowdown of the week.

 

AMERICA LOOSES IN 2016 BECAUSE THE GOP WON IN 2014

AMERICA LOOSES IN 2016 BECAUSE THE GOP WON IN 2014

Output file

We vote today folks so let’s make it count shall we; the title of this blog came to me last night on my way home from work. I was listening to Glen Beck on the radio and he predicted the GOP would win the house and the Senate and that may be a bad thing. My drive is only an hour so I never got to listen to what he meant by that but I have a thought on what it means.

My thought is this the current leadership of the GOP is piss poor to say the least, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are a joke for the GOP they may as well be moderate democrats. They show no real leadership in a party that once had both houses and lost it and now are on the verge of reclaiming the power again. I guess that is the word “Power” those two see this as the same as the democrats it’s nothing but power and what they can do to rule the concept of their democracy. Well GOP senators and congressmen and this is where you don’t get it. You don’t do your job for money and power and insider trading you does this to represent your state and your country. You work for the people of your state and you make and break your country with the decisions you make or lack thereof.

The lack of leadership is what got us president Obama and Harry Reid and I fear the lack of leadership again by Boehner and McConnell will yield us President Hillary Clinton in 2016. Problem is people vote big on their pocket book and they are easily bought into by lies and deceit something the Democratic Party is good at and something moderate republicans use to keep their own hope alive. We have to stop this voters, the GOP needs to win the house the senate and the presidency to keep America from slipping in to economic and moral ruin.

Yes the GOP leadership is crap I know but so is the democratic party, it’s more than crap is just right down immoral right now and if you opted out on voting today or yesterday if you absent “T” then you voted for Harry Reid and or any other slug running for office on the democratic ticket. Voters have to be strong and vote out these democrats officials that go along with socialized health care, allowing illegal’s to run amock while we the people split the bill. In 2016 no matter how week Boehner and McConnell are no matter how stupid your GOP congressman and senator is we have to vote for who the next Republican presidential nominee is because no matter how moderate they are they still will be better than Clinton or Biden or any other democrat communist that comes along.

Stand strong and keep the GOP together and after the 2016 election then we get rid of Boehner and McConnell, you vote out your lukewarm moderate senator and congressman that plagues your state and vote in a conservative American that will work for you the people and not their own power and pocket book. Stand strong America and be patient, we will have the chance to take our country back but we have to do it right. We can’t do it for ourselves we have to do it for our future, our parents, our kids and our way of life. Please today do the right thing, Vote and let us get this country back on its feet.

ENVIROISM

smach-climate-communism

Well the wackos are at it but this time instead of trying to scare us with junk science and the impending doom of climate change they’re now trying to pick our wallets as if we aren’t taxed enough as it is.

With rising fuel prices to curb our travels and increasing registration prices for our vehicles the Left is doing its best to cash in on our everyday life. We are forced to recycle in many states whether we do or not with the redemption taxes on all our cans and bottles but now Senator Bernie Sanders wants to now tax corporations who make fossil fuels to punish them for making products that help drive the American economy.

Bernie spells it out for us in his HufPo article not using one scientific fact but ensures that climate change is responsible for droughts, heat waves, floods, forest fires, disease (not sure what disease he’s blaming on the climate),rising sea levels and extreme weather disturbances oh yea he forgot to mention 2013-14 winter was pretty cold.

global warming

Now what Bernie fails to explain is that taxing these corporations will only result in higher rates at the pumps and higher energy bills in our homes. We get punished not the corporations we get the higher bill. Bernie feels if we tax these fossil fuels it will level the playing field for greener energy.

When I last checked I don’t remember a windmill being able to heat the house, or solar power powering a 210 hp R series John Deer tractor to harvest crops and I really don’t think I’ll see a Caterpillar C660 hauling logs on geothermal power in the near future, oh yea environmentalist hate logging we will just make our paper products out of cannabis since our state governments want us stoned anyhow.

This type of thought just proves how out of touch our representatives are from what Rush Limbaugh likes to call realville the world you and I live in. Their thought is the green energy will bring in jobs and lower energy prices since fuels like gas propane and coal constantly fluctuate. Bernie again fails to tell you yes while they do move up and down based on supply and demand it can be better regulated if government would lower taxes, deregulate restriction and allow for more exploration to find more fuel and how is this for a thought let’s find it in our own country.

Bernie does in bad conscious tell us climate change is real, but just as he can say it’s for real I can say yes it’s real but you Bernie don’t understand what that means. Let me see since I have been alive and I’ll throw my parents into that mix so over the last 80 years there has been major floods, lots of forest fires, lots of floods, tornados, tons of heat waves and even earthquakes I could go on but I think you get my drift. The weather is always changing it will never stop.

On a more sinister point, I view this concept of climate change global warming as a new brand of Communism. No one likes the Commie word so they just rebranded it and now it’s the environment. Same concept, tax regulate and controlling your every move  and dollar but not for federal power but for the environment because everyone cares about the environment otherwise your a bad person

As a conservative Christian I oppose this greatly and offer this question to folks that believe in God whether you’re a hard core Christian like myself or not. Why would God design and build an elaborate world such as planet earth and then create a creature like man that could destroy his creation. Gods own creative nature of rain, wind, volcanoes, and earthquakes do more damage in an instant than man can do in a century.

Right now Sanders and Senator Boxer are wanting to make this a proposed bill and have it passed and legal. I for one will oppose this even though Boxer is in my state it will probably be a waste of breath to ask her to think twice about this. But the rest of America needs to weigh the real options here. Do we just pass laws, increase taxes and regulate based on a theory that keeps being proven wrong time after time. This is not only a money grab by our representatives it’s a way to keep us tied to the government and I believe that is what communism is all about.
