Do I Believe My Heart or My Head?

Yep — no posts for a few months.

Emotionally, I’ve been through the old-style washing machine; the kind that has two rollers for squeezing the water out of your clothes.  Been trying to decide if I think this country is worth keeping anymore.  Why?

  • A subversive coup has taken place — with the approval of more than half the US population.
  • The media has totally sold out.  Do you think for a millisecond that the MSM would have allowed McCain to continue on his campaign without producing his birth certificate?
  • Many politicians have a passive-aggressive streak, but the president-elect is blatantly passive-aggressive. He even flaunts it.

Essentially, time is up. The Biblical ‘end times’ is upon us.  To borrow a phrase that was born out of the Bible, the writing is on the wall.  With that, my give-a-damn is in serious need of repair, and frankly I just don’t give a damn enough to fix it.

I’m juxtaposed between what’s in my heart (wanting to believe what I was taught — that the Constitution is actually worth something and the government actually works the way it’s supposed to) and what’s in my head (that the powers running things are hidden; that the US Government is simply actors in a big production number; that the country has become the proverbial boiled frog).

They did a good job in those government schools.  I believed it.  I really did.

And I still want to . . .

   . . . but I know better.

So I may venture in and out of this blog to bitch once in a while, but for the most part, I’m spending time reconciling my heart with my head;  Because although I WANT to believe my heart, I know better.

Listen to Obama Say It Himself —

No need to check Snopes.com …. no need to ask your spouse, “Did he really say that?” The answer is “yes, he did.” And you can spend 90 seconds listening to him say it himself —- (by the way, listen carefully as he says “I don’t switch positions, and I don’t make promises that can’t be kept.”)

If the above does not play, you can watch it Right Here

They want to preserve the right to murder

Be careful of what you wish for, you just may get it.  According to Wall Street Journal blogger Steven Waldman, the Democrats have been wanting a fired-up religious left for quite a while.  Well, now that one is emerging, it seems they might not like what’s happening as a result.

In a recent post by Waldman, it appears Mr. Tony Campolo (a rather loud and obnoxious left-wing evangelist) happens to be sitting on the Democrat’s platform committee.  He and another left-wing evangelical (Jim Wallis)  are pretty adamant about making a stink to get the wording changed in the Dem’s platform to seek an reduction in abortions.

The now famous phrase “a woman’s right to choose” was created in the effort to get abortion laws passed — Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founders of NARAL, says as they were brainstorming catch-phrases to spin off to the media, they were laughing at the “woman’s right to choose.”  But it stuck.  This is, after all, America, where “Freedom of Choice” is a watchword.

However, eventually Nathanson came to realize that all the abortions he was performing was the taking of a human life.  Strangely, even women I know who advocate legal abortions acknowledge that it’s MURDER. But they still advocate it because of the “10,000 women who died each year from illegal abortions.”

Problem: Nathanson confessed they lied their asses off to the media: That in 1972, only 39 women died in this country from illegal abortions. But NARAL was putting out false info in their press releases that 10,000 women had died from illegal abortions. They knew the media would suck it up. And they did.

Puffery. Lies. Deceptions. Nobody bothered to check the facts. And they still don’t. They just want to preserve the right to MURDER innocent babies based on lies published by NARAL (follow the money, folks – the abortion industry generates over $500,000,000 in business each year) and spun out to the ears of the Jane Q. Public by a lazy media who would not verify NARAL’s numbers.

You want choice? The choice happens when a couple chooses to have sex.  That’s the choice. 

Any other choice is this: “Do I give this baby the gift of seeing the light of day, or do I MURDER it?”

PS.  Here are some interesting observations about the topic

Obama Update

Yesterday I posted about caring what the mainstream press tells us, because they are overlooking so many issues attached to the presumptive Democratic nominee.

I also mentioned that his most basic qualification to run for president – his US citizenship – is in question, but I neglected to provide a link for people to read for themselves.  Amazingly, it takes a newspaper outside the US to publish this story, but here it is

Read it yourself, and if you’re a US citizen, whether Democrat or Republican, ask yourself if the law of the land, the US Constitution, really matters to you at all.

We deserve to know the truth.

Do we REALLY care?

Senator (first term US Senator) Barak “Ears” Hussein Obama is the presumptive Democratic nominee for the office of President of the United States.

People are comparing this guy to JFK.  Sorry.  No comparison.

JFK was a US Congressman for six years before he served six years as a US Senator.  This after seeing combat in the second World War as the skipper of a PT Boat.

Barak Ears Hussein Obama has been a US Senator for less than three years – with a year and a half of that spent prepping for his presidential bid.  Before that he served in the Illinois state senate for seven years.    (OOoooo.  Can’t you just feel the leadership?)

JFK put his life on the line in the Solomon Islands when skippering a PT boat during WWII, earning a purple heart (a REAL purple heart, Senator Kerry) and in 1944, a presidential medal of freedom.  He was a member of the Rotary Club, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association.

Barak Ears Hussein Obama has an unknown background in which he claims he was never a practicing Muslim.  But when pictures of the man start surfacing with him wearing a Islamic garb and his half-brother is saying that at one time, the man fully participated in Islamic services, one must wonder if the Junior Senator from Illinois is telling the truth.

We do know that the Senator from Illinois attended a church that was primarily interested in things African, not things American.  In fact, the leader of said church was unabashedly anti-American.

Some claim Barack “Ears” Hussein Obama was a college professor on Constitutional Law.  Sorry.   A “lecturer” on Constitutional Law does not make one a professor.

And then comes his qualifications to serve under the requirements set forth in the Constitution. This is yet another issue the main stream press is totally ignoring. It may be quite true that Barak Hussein Obama is not qualified, constitutionally, to serve as President of the United States.  He was born of parents who were not living long enough in the United States (in keeping with the laws on the books at the time) to qualify the young Obama as an official citizen.

But where it the media on this?

Nowhere.

I could go on, buy why?  Why?  It does not seem that anyone really cares. We know for sure that the mainstream media DOES NOT CARE about this man’s deceptions. They just want anybody – – ANYBODY – – who does not have an “R” after his or her name to be elected President of the United States. 

I’m certainly not enamored with the Republican Party, but I am even less-thrilled with someone who his “minimally” qualified (at best) to step into the role of “leader of the free world.”

I guess the real question is, “Do we really care anymore?” Does anyone really care just WHY the USA became its own independent nation and separated itself from England?

When one observes the reporting from the main stream media, the answer is “apparently not.”

You don’t want to laugh

Has anyone reading this actually seen the 16-minute video entitled Fitna?  If not, you need to.  (At the time of this writing, you can still view it on this page.)

While the West is reciting it’s parrot immitation “Islam is a religion of peace,” we have the Quran and it’s followers proclaiming death to all who do not turn to Islam.

It’s like, “You better start reciting the line that Islam is a religion of peace or we’re going to kill you.”

If you say this is an over-reaction, you seriously have your head up inside a dark cavity looking for your last meal.  Pull it out. Look.  Listen.

The Free Speech You Have Now Will Be Gone

 Do you really believe that once Islam controls a geographical area that they let “non-believers” continue their free speech?  On the contrary.  Those non-Islamic bleeeding hearts who currently support Islam will be killed.

 Oh, that it were not that way, but it is.  Every woman, every Christian, every homosexual, every Buddhist, every independent thinker — everyone! — Every non-Muslim will be forced to convert to Islam or be killed.

Believe me, those of us foretelling this do NOT want to laugh when it happens to say “we told you so.” 

Instead, we will certainly cry.  The freedom our parents, our grandparents, and our great-grandparents fought so hard to achieve will disappear simply because of a misguided view of tolerance. 

The TRUE Meaning of Tolerance

In a true sense of of tolerance, we certainly tolerate people who have differing views. But when it comes to how we defend and protect freedom, we draw a boundary and say “this is our policy; this is our Constitution – you shall not change it.”  And it’s because the Constitution guarantees tolerance that we defend it so fiercely.

How can it be inflammatory to Muslims if we simply cite their own religious book and play videos of what their Imams are saying (that those who are not Muslim shall and ought be killed)?  What kind of twisted logic agrees it’s inflammatory to a group to quote what the group believes?

 The misguided tolerance, kind. 

Believe me people – you do not want to laugh.  Draw a boundary. Stand up, or you shall surely be cut down. 

Again — if you’ve not yet seen the video, do so here.

In honor of Barak Hussein ‘Ears’ O’bama’s grandmama, we need a ‘typical white person’s’ blog

What do you say?  If the frontrunner for the Democrats’ nominee for President of the United States is free to talk about his grandmother as a “Typical White Person,” the same language should be free for all of us to use. 

And a “typical white person” ought to have a “typical white person” blog to visit and read opinions about what “typical white people” think.

 You can’t tell me it’s racist!  The black candidate for President of the United States, who, of course, could NEVER be racist if he has reached such a pinacle, has legitimized the term!

Someone was thinking — the domain “typicalwhiteperson.com” is now taken. And isn’t it great that capitalism thrives, because typicalwhiteperson.net, .biz, .tv, .us, .info, are all taken now, too.

Perhaps typicalwhiteperson.com will sell white supremacy materials. God, I hope not.  No race is superior to another.  But I do think we should follow the lead set forth by Barak Hussein ‘Ears’ O’bama and make sure the views of the typical white person are known.

Wouldn’t you agree that the best way to do that is let typical white people comment on a typical white person’s blog?  I think it would be a great way to honor the Democratic frontrunner’s grandmother.
