The Next Person Who Says Happy Holidays Shall Be Punched In The Throat

How's that for holiday spirit??

I've just about had enough of the minimization of Christmas. Political correctness, coupled with bitter, angry atheists, have all but destroyed any remnants of the reason for celebrating this holiday, and I am at an unprofessional boiling point. Yes, this shall be one of my rants.

Does anyone really believe our nation is better off without the true meaning of Christmas allowed in public places? It is already an over-commercialized financially crippling mess. We have created numerous fairy tales to detract from the true meaning. From a fat man in a red suit who sneaks down our chimney at night, to flying reindeer with red noses, to a very unmanly enchanted snowman (that's right, I said it!! I hate Frosty!!), we will look to anything to not have to look toward or understand the true meaning of CHRISTmas.

Some time ago, people even started calling it Xmas, quite literally removing the meaning of the holiday. Shortly after this, some started celebrating a holiday during the same time period called "Kwanzaa", which is a fictitious holiday made up by a felon named Ron N. Everett, who changed his name to Maulana Karenga.

As insane as this sounds, in today's politically correct United States it is more acceptable to talk about this made up farce of a holiday in your public schools than it is to speak of Jesus' birth.

Anything which could offend anyone (minus Christians, of course) is shunned as intolerant. No Christmas trees, manger scenes, wise men, Jesus, or anything of the sort. It's as though there really exists a PC Grinch, who has ridden down the mountain and stolen our Christian symbols of the holiday. Unfortunately, his heart does not appear to be growing three sizes any day soon. Removing all Christian symbols not being enough, he (atheists) is now advertising the "No God" campaign on public transit systems.

Don't get me wrong. I am not demanding that everyone place manger scenes in their front yards and go to Christmas Eve service at a local church. I am not demanding everyone worship God or Jesus. Do whatever you wish during this time of year. What I am saying is December 25th is called CHRISTmas. It is when Christians celebrate the birth of their savior, Jesus Christ. If you do not believe in this than simply don't celebrate the holiday, but don't attempt to create other distractions and fictional celebrations to overshadow and minimize CHRISTmas.

If you want to be an atheist go right ahead, though I've not known many that aren't angry and unhappy 80% of the time, but it is certainly your right. Live your life as an atheist however you want to, but don't attempt to tell me how to live mine because I believe in something...

and don't give me that load of Bull about being offended by manger scenes and all that garbage. YOU BELIEVE IN NOTHING!! HOW CAN YOU BE SO OFFENDED BY SOMETHING YOU DON'T EVEN BELIEVE EXISTS??? It would be more believable for a satanist to say they are offended by the manger scenes, as I could see how the birth of Jesus would offend them, but you can't be offended by something you don't believe in. Guess what??? I don't believe that vampires exist, but I don't get all bent out of shape on Halloween, or when the new Twilight movie gets released.

Christmas is celebrated on December 25th of each year. It is called CHRISTmas for a reason. Merry Christmas to all who believe in the virgin birth!!! To all those who don't...Merry Christmas as well. To all those who claim to be offended by someone saying "Merry Christmas" to them....lighten up!! ride that sled back down the mountain and we'll let you carve the roast beast!! Merry Christmas!!!

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure. 

Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Not a lot of people know this.

A Test of Socialism

An economics professor at Texas said he had never failed a single student before but had once failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said okay, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset, and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise. And the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder to succeed, the greater the reward, but when a government takes all the reward away, no one will try or succeed.

by Richard J. Maybury

Each year at this time school children all over America are taught the official Thanksgiving story, and newspapers, radio, TV, and magazines devote vast amounts of time and space to it. It is all very colorful and fascinating.

It is also very deceiving. This official story is nothing like what really happened. It is a fairy tale, a whitewashed and sanitized collection of half-truths which divert attention away from Thanksgiving's real meaning.

The official story has the pilgrims boarding the Mayflower, coming to America and establishing thePlymouth colony in the winter of 1620-21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The Pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the wonderful new abundant land He has given them.

The official story then has the Pilgrims living more or less happily ever after, each year repeating the first Thanksgiving. Other early colonies also have hard times at first, but they soon prosper and adopt the annual tradition of giving thanks for this prosperous new land called America.

The problem with this official story is that the harvest of 1621 was not bountiful, nor were the colonists hardworking or tenacious. 1621 was a famine year and many of the colonists were lazy thieves.

In his 'History of Plymouth Plantation,' the governor of the colony, William Bradford, reported that the colonists went hungry for years, because they refused to work in the fields. They preferred instead to steal food. He says the colony was riddled with "corruption," and with "confusion and discontent." The crops were small because "much was stolen both by night and day, before it became scarce eatable."

In the harvest feasts of 1621 and 1622, "all had their hungry bellies filled," but only briefly. The prevailing condition during those years was not the abundance the official story claims, it was famine and death. The first "Thanksgiving" was not so much a celebration as it was the last meal of condemned men.

But in subsequent years something changes. The harvest of 1623 was different. Suddenly, "instead of famine now God gave them plenty," Bradford wrote, "and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God." Thereafter, he wrote, "any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day." In fact, in 1624, so much food was produced that the colonists were able to begin exporting corn.

What happened?

After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop." They began to question their form of economic organization.

This had required that "all profits & benefits that are got by trade, working, fishing, or any other means" were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, "all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock." A person was to put into the common stock all he could, and take out only what he needed.

This "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" was an early form of socialism, and it is why the Pilgrims were starving. Bradford writes that "young men that are most able and fit for labor and service" complained about being forced to "spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children." Also, "the strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak." So the young and strong refused to work and the total amount of food produced was never adequate.

To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism. He gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit. In other words, he replaced socialism with a free market, and that was the end of famines.

Many early groups of colonists set up socialist states, all with the same terrible results. At Jamestown, established in 1607, out of every shipload of settlers that arrived, less than half would survive their first twelve months in America. Most of the work was being done by only one-fifth of the men, the other four-fifths choosing to be parasites. In the winter of 1609-10, called "The Starving Time," the population fell from five-hundred to sixty.

Then the Jamestown colony was converted to a free market, and the results were every bit as dramatic as those at Plymouth. In 1614, Colony Secretary Ralph Hamor wrote that after the switch there was "plenty of food, which every man by his own industry may easily and doth procure." He said that when the socialist system had prevailed, "we reaped not so much corn from the labors of thirty men as three men have done for themselves now."

Before these free markets were established, the colonists had nothing for which to be thankful. They were in the same situation as Ethiopians are today, and for the same reasons. But after free markets were established, the resulting abundance was so dramatic that the annual Thanksgiving celebrations became common throughout the colonies, and in 1863, Thanksgiving became a national holiday.

Thus the real reason for Thanksgiving, deleted from the official story, is: Socialism does not work; the one and only source of abundance is free markets, and we thank God we live in a country where we can have them.

This article originally appeared in The Free Market, November 1985


I posted this originally a year ago (as you will see in the Fort Hood shooting reference) but wanted to repost as I feel so strongly about these views. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone crawling out of their food induced coma this morning.

I often come up with what I plan to write on during my morning run. For some reason, ideas seem to bounce into my brain housing group (military term) as I am punishing myself physically. Today, I decided to put politics in the background; somewhat, and talk about life in general. Don't worry, I promise not to become a philosopher, as I do not feel that is a respectable occupation. If you spend your entire life thinking about things you'll never accomplish anything. Life is a combination of thinking and doing, and that's somewhat the direction I am going today.

It seems that more and more Americans these days want, more like demand the government to take a more active role in their everyday lives. I do not wish to examine the government's motives for this, as I do at great length almost everyday. Today I want to talk specifically to Americans who may believe that it is the government's duty to take care of them.

Once upon a time we were taught, as children, that we were responsible for our own actions, and that actions have consequences. This apparently isn't the thought process among a great many Americans anymore, as so many look to others to blame for every mistake they make. The liberal lawmakers as well as the media fuel this, by spinning so many of their news stories in that direction. We need look no further than the Fort Hood shooting last week for an example. Why does the media insist on telling all Americans stories about poor Major Hasan, who was criticized by his peers, had no friends, was persecuted for his religion, and was forced by the evil Army to listen to hundreds of soldiers' PTSD stories to the point in which he broke. The story is actually quite simple. Maj. Hasan gunned down 14 (that's right pro-murder advocates I said 14) innocent people...end of story. When did the "why" become more important than the "what"?

Before I go off on a rant here, let me pull this back on topic. The point is Hasan is responsible for his actions...period!

On a smaller, less violent scale, Americans should be responsible for their actions. More so than just that, we should want to be responsible for our actions. I see too many Americans content to live on unemployment and welfare, rather than get a job. I see too many that feel entitled to free healthcare. How many Americans had no problem taking a government bailout of their mortgage, while some of us scratched and clawed to keep paying ours. Oh, that's wasn't their fault it was the evil lenders who didn't explain well enough what "Adjustable Rate Mortgage" meant. Sometimes all of this "not my fault" victimization angers me, and other times it just makes me sad.

Why does it make me sad, you ask? Quite simply, life is a magical ride, but you only get to enjoy it once. Most of us are going to grow old one day (some of us feel old already) and be unable to do things we were once able to do. On that same note, nobody is promised another day...your life could end tomorrow. If it were all over tomorrow, what would you be proud of? It's a simple question, but one that this generation may have a hard time answering. So many have been brought up to believe that they are entitled to everything they want, with little to no effort. Some have gone so far as to believe they are entitled to not be offended by anything they see or hear. If you live your life taking handouts and bailouts, and anything else you can scam without effort, what will you be proud of?

My mother resides in an assisted living facility now, as she is in advanced stages of multiple sclerosis. If you want to witness the point I am making here, I challenge you to go visit one, even if you don't know anyone. They love to have visitors. When you go, you will have no problem getting that generation of Americans to share stories with you about their lives. You will hear numerous entertaining stories of events they were involved in, and troubles they were able to overcome. What will this younger generation of Americans speak of when that day comes?

The point I am making, at an alarmingly slow pace I suppose is this. You have but one life to live here on this earth. Live it to it's fullest. Make a difference! Do things you're proud of. Not happy with your job? Start a new career. Do something you enjoy and that you can take pride in. Make a difference in someone elses life and I guarantee you will be a happier person. When you were a child you had exciting goals and dreams, we all did. Who gave you the idea that those dreams had to die? I beg of you to not accept this life of minimal effort under the care of government social programs. It may be the path of least resistance now, but one day you will have grandchildren who will look up at you and ask about what you did when you were younger. They won't want to here stories about all of the free government programs that you eeked through life on, compliments of other Americans taxpayer dollars.

Go live your life! Take pride in your accomplishments! Learn from your failures! Work hard, and don't blame anyone else. The Constitution says you are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Start pursuing!!

George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

There sure are a lot of references to God. I thought President Obama said we were not a Christian nation. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!


Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to "recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.

Here's a View From The Liberal "One Nation" Rally in DC Today

This is a video taken from the liberal rally today. Still naive enough to think a "liberal" is a...well, liberal?? This is hilarious and frightening at the same time...this should only further the awakening of honest, decent, hard-working Americans who believe in what their forefathers created. We must not lose our freedom and liberties to this band of idiots!!

Wow!! Obama Faced Toughest Presidency?? Really??

There is no depth in lying that they will not stoop to. I suppose they feel they have "dumbed down" public education enough over the last 20 years that Americans may accept this idiotic claim as truth.

Christine O'Donnell Wins...Karl Rove Proves GOP Not Necessarily a Conservatives Friend

Christine O'Donnell, immediately after upsetting her opponent, long time establishment RINO Mike Castle, is immediately blasted by Karlo Rove on Hannity's show. The Republican Party further stated that they will not be supporting O'Donnell financially in the election race.

Pay attention!! The GOP is not always the friend of Conservatives.

Nine Years Later...What Have We Learned? How Have We Changed?

Tomorrow is the ninth anniversary of an event which none can argue, changed our nation. Furthermore, it changed the lives of many families around our nation forever, as they slowly realized that their loved one(s) were not coming home. As we went from shock, to disbelief, to fear, and then to anger, we were forced to come to terms with the fact that our nation was no longer safe from the centuries old violence in the Middle East. We were no longer able to turn a blind eye to the clues and events which foretold just such an attack for decades. Events we wrote off as isolated in the past:

Nov. 4, Tehran, Iran: Iranian radical students seized the U.S. embassy, taking 66 hostages. 14 were later released. The remaining 52 were freed after 444 days on the day of President Reagan's inauguration.
Lebanon: Thirty US and other Western hostages kidnapped in Lebanon by Hezbollah. Some were killed, some died in captivity, and some were eventually released. Terry Anderson was held for 2,454 days.
April 18, Beirut, Lebanon: U.S. embassy destroyed in suicide car-bomb attack; 63 dead, including 17 Americans. The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.
Oct. 23, Beirut, Lebanon: Shiite suicide bombers exploded truck near U.S. military barracks at Beirut airport, killing 241 marines. Minutes later a second bomb killed 58 French paratroopers in their barracks in West Beirut.
Dec. 12, Kuwait City, Kuwait: Shiite truck bombers attacked the U.S. embassy and other targets, killing 5 and injuring 80.
Sept. 20, east Beirut, Lebanon: truck bomb exploded outside the U.S. embassy annex, killing 24, including 2 U.S. military.
Dec. 3, Beirut, Lebanon: Kuwait Airways Flight 221, from Kuwait to Pakistan, hijacked and diverted to Tehran. 2 Americans killed.
April 12, Madrid, Spain: Bombing at restaurant frequented by U.S. soldiers, killed 18 Spaniards and injured 82.
June 14, Beirut, Lebanon: TWA Flight 847 en route from Athens to Rome hijacked to Beirut by Hezbollah terrorists and held for 17 days. A U.S. Navy diver executed.
Oct. 7, Mediterranean Sea: gunmen attack Italian cruise ship, Achille Lauro. One U.S. tourist killed. Hijacking linked to Libya.
Dec. 18, Rome, Italy, and Vienna, Austria: airports in Rome and Vienna were bombed, killing 20 people, 5 of whom were Americans. Bombing linked to Libya.
April 2, Athens, Greece:A bomb exploded aboard TWA flight 840 en route from Rome to Athens, killing 4 Americans and injuring 9.
April 5, West Berlin, Germany: Libyans bombed a disco frequented by U.S. servicemen, killing 2 and injuring hundreds.
Dec. 21, Lockerbie, Scotland: N.Y.-bound Pan-Am Boeing 747 exploded in flight from a terrorist bomb and crashed into Scottish village, killing all 259 aboard and 11 on the ground. Passengers included 35 Syracuse University students and many U.S. military personnel. Libya formally admitted responsibility 15 years later (Aug. 2003) and offered $2.7 billion compensation to victims' families.
Feb. 26, New York City: bomb exploded in basement garage of World Trade Center, killing 6 and injuring at least 1,040 others. In 1995, militant Islamist Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and 9 others were convicted of conspiracy charges, and in 1998, Ramzi Yousef, believed to have been the mastermind, was convicted of the bombing. Al-Qaeda involvement is suspected.
Nov. 13, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: car bomb exploded at U.S. military headquarters, killing 5 U.S. military servicemen.
June 25, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia: truck bomb exploded outside Khobar Towers military complex, killing 19 American servicemen and injuring hundreds of others. 13 Saudis and a Lebanese, all alleged members of Islamic militant group Hezbollah, were indicted on charges relating to the attack in June 2001.
Aug. 7, Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: truck bombs exploded almost simultaneously near 2 U.S. embassies, killing 224 (213 in Kenya and 11 in Tanzania) and injuring about 4,500. 4 men connected with al-Qaeda 2 of whom had received training at al-Qaeda camps inside Afghanistan, were convicted of the killings in May 2001 and later sentenced to life in prison. A federal grand jury had indicted 22 men in connection with the attacks, including Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden, who remained at large.
Oct. 12, Aden, Yemen: U.S. Navy destroyer USS Cole heavily damaged when a small boat loaded with explosives blew up alongside it. 17 sailors killed. Linked to Osama bin Laden, or members of al-Qaeda terrorist network.
Americans quickly woke up from their disinterest in the radical element which sought the demise of our way of life, removed their heads from the sand they had been stuck in for decades, and realized that there may; in fact, be something more important than making money and a healthy economy.

Unified for the first time in a long time, our President, George W. Bush made a bold statement to the nation and the world.

Three days later, Bush again addresses the American people at Ground Zero

America was united in it's desire to bring justice to those responsible for the terrorist act.

Where are we today??

On the eve of the ninth anniversary of this terrible act, we have again allowed political correctness to weaken our resolve, our defense, and our nation. We now have an administration which seeks to apologize and appease our enemies, while alienating our allies.

They insist that America be tolerant of a religion which preaches hate and murder to any who do not accept and believe in it, subjugation of women, and condoned pedophilia. The same religion which justifies the killing of 3,000 innocent Americans in this massacre we remember now as 9/11.

On the very ground we remember this event taking place, a radical muslim, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who refuses to condemn the terrorist group Hamas, and believes that 9/11 was partially America's fault, has plans to build an Islamic Mosque. As I have stated in an earlier article, constitutionally he has every right to do this, and I do not support our government interfering with the plans. Though something is legally right, that does not necessarily make it morally right.

In another section of the country we have another radical, who believes that burning Korans will somehow solve something. Again I say, though something is legally right, it does not make it morally right.

It is obvious we have allowed our visibility to become zero again, with our heads tucked comfortably back in the same hole it found itself in nine years ago, more concerned with our economic futures than with the ongoing security which allows our liberty and freedom to pursue said economic gain.

On the ninth anniversary I again state the phrase that adorned so many bumper stickers, and is branded in the hearts and minds of the families who lost loved one on that horrible day, "Never Forget"

NEVER FORGET those who lost loved ones.
NEVER FORGET what you were doing that morning.
NEVER FORGET the thoughts that went through your head when you watched the coverage.
NEVER FORGET who the perpetrators of this violence were (no, it was not our government whacko truthers).
NEVER FORGET those who perished.
NEVER FORGET those who danced in the streets, celebrating the deaths.
NEVER FORGET those who wish to end our way of life.
NEVER FORGET those who fight each day to maintain our way of life.

What Must Be Done To Make America Great Again

I just finished watching the "Restore Honor" rally at the Washington Monument, and the message from the rally moved me greatly. First, for those who do not know me, I am a Christian, and believe in the rapture, and of all that is spoken of in the book of Revelation.

I say that because I realized today, that on occasion I have used this belief and knowledge to comfort myself in the fact that the degradation of morals and principles in our nation is all part of God's plan....which, don't get me wrong, I certainly still believe to be true and do take a certain degree of comfort in it. What I realized I must not do in the future, is take such a degree of comfort in it that it weakens my resolve to fight against the immorality and policies which are destroying our great nation, as well as the world.

Today I asked myself, to what point am I serving God and furthering his will if I merely sit back on the sidelines and comfort myself with the knowledge that the Bible foretold this degradation of morals and decency, as well as the coming rapture and judgment. This serves nothing but to calm my own nerves. God did not call Christians to sit in their homes and take comfort that they were Christians. He called on them to go and spread the message and do works that honor him. I know I may sound a bit "preachy," but I am not preaching at anyone (except myself) right now. I am merely sharing with my small group of readers the message I received from the rally today.

There are many things which once made our nation great, and can make our nation great again if we will restore them to the fabric which once clothed our great nation.

#1 God

That's right!! I said it!! Wait, Ron!! You can't say that and be a firm believer in the Constitution. The Constitution says there has to be separation of church and state!

NO IT DOES NOT!! The Constitution states:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

There is no "separation of church and state" phrase which exists anywhere in the Constitution. Note that the sentence above places restrictions on the government, not religion. Congress shall make no law to respect (sponsor) establishment of a religion, and they also may not make any law to prohibit the free exercise of one. That's right, folks...every law or policy enacted which tells someone they can't pray somewhere, or take their bible somewhere, or any other ridiculous story we have heard off and on over the last 50 years taking place which serves to take christianity out of the public eye, is unconstitutional!!

If you read further on why the founding fathers placed this within the Constitution, you get a clear picture that it was inserted to prevent any "state sponsored" religion, as they had seen how corrupt that becomes, i.e. Church of England. Yet, we have quietly allowed atheism and political correctness to pervert the true meaning of our Constitution.

This statement from our Constitution has been twisted to the point that it now is commonly believed that any action by any religion (especially christianity) which serves to make anyone feel offended or uncomfortable, must be removed.

Really?! Seriously?! Is that in any way, shape, or form what the Constitution says?? No. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the Government has the responsibility to see that no American citizen is ever offended.

If we are to become great again, it will be because we; once again, place our trust in God to rule our nation. We will return to the Godly morals and principles that founded our great nation. And, yes, all of you statist history re-writers, our nation was; in fact, founded upon Christian morals. Many historians, by defining "Christianity" and "religion" as one in the same in the writings of our founding fathers, have attempted to display a disdain for Christianity by the them. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is overwhelming documentation from our founding fathers that supports our nation was founded as a Christian nation. Their disdain was rightfully directed at state sponsored religion.

It is every American's free right to worship, or not worship, God as they choose. As a believing Christian, I hope and pray that each would come to believe in and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, but no person or government entity has a right to sponsor or enforce this or any other belief system upon anyone. What is equally important; however, is they also have no right or power to prevent the "free exercise" of it, either.

I will continue with #2 Re-establish America as a Nation of Production, tomorrow.

Concerning Strange Bedfellows (repost)

I am reposting this as I have noticed many crazies have once again grabbed the coattails of conservatism.

Concerning Strange Bedfellows

In my daily attempt to shed light on the liberals statist agenda that seeks to convert our fine republic into a socialist doormat for the world, I come across a great many characters with quite a few interesting viewpoints.

Throughout 2009, as President Obama and the liberal congress made it increasingly obvious that the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution of The United States meant nothing to them, a movement began which has been dubbed the “Tea Party Movement.” As the movement grew and gained popularity as a strong attempt to reclaim conservative values based upon the Constitution, fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets, many different viewpoints and, in some cases “fringe” elements have attempted to attach their causes to the coattails of this movement. Let’s examine some of the different schools of thought I come in contact with daily:

Those that contend the President and the liberal-run congress support policies that are socialist in nature, and therefore are not supported by our Constitution. I would say the vast majority of conservatives, myself included, believe this is true.

Those that contend the President and the liberal-run congress are enacting reckless spending policies on purpose in order to cause a catastrophic failure of the free market in order to enact a new socialist government…see Cloward/Piven Strategy. Quite a few are beginning to accept this theory, and I consider it to be a possibility. Whether you believe this is true or not, the problem here is that this thought process begins to lend itself to the conspiracy theorist crowd, which loves to take a small fact or truth, and run with it to the point that it becomes laughable.

The libertarian school of thought has been more widely accepted as of late, and a great many conservatives find themselves having “common ground” with the libertarians’ strict views of limited government and personal liberty. The problem with becoming too cozy with libertarian philosophy is the broad spectrum it encompasses. Some libertarians take limited government and go so far as to desire the abolition of the state completely. This school of thought seems to vilify all government representation as evil and an enemy of individual rights. Their “live and let live” philosophy is a close cousin to pacifism, which is typically espoused by liberal fringe groups…thus, completely perverting the initial belief system 180 degrees, and allowing persons who do not represent conservatism in any way a perceived voice in the discord.

For example, I have made many friends in the last year writing my blog and have utilized facebook as a mechanism for keeping up with these alleged like-minded thinkers. I recently witnessed disturbing articles and videos from some of these self-avowed fellow tea party patriots which were in no way based in conservatism or the Constitution. Everything from anti-war veterans speaking of how evil corporate fatcats forced them to take part in unjust wars to schizophrenic 9/11 “truthers” were included. Needless to say they are no longer on my friend list.

Overall, the Tea Party Movement has done a great deal to fight the statist policies that threaten to bring this wonderful republic to its knees. I am a staunch supporter of it and would march in every event they coordinated if my status as a U.S. Marine allowed for it. My concern in this article is to point out that as this movement continues to grow at such a brisk pace, it will be important to ensure that the leaders of the movement are policing the ranks for those that would misrepresent the principles the movement stands for.

Nancy Pelosi Wants Investigation of All Groups That Oppose Ground Zero Mosque

REALLY??? SERIOUSLY NANCY??? So Nancy believes everyone who has a differing opinion from hers should be investigated??

I'm game if she's game. I'll agree on the investigation of any groups funding opposition to the mosque if she'll agree on an investigation of every group funding the building of the mosque. Let's see who comes out cleaner in those two independent investigations, Nancy!! Also, while we're investigating everyone how about we investigate all the frivolous, unnecessary expenditures and trips you've demanded and made in military aircraft over the years, Nancy.

One should probably make sure their own house is clean before they start demanding investigations into everyone else's affairs. Liberal hypocrites!!!

Ground Zero Mosque...Reaching Out And Being Tolerant To Islam

I have waited until now to make any comments on the proposed "ground zero" mosque. Now that this is all the rage in political discussion I suppose I will state my peace. Let me begin by stating what should be obvious to any true Constitution believing American. Legally, there is nothing the government can or should do to prevent the mosque from being built. That is a dangerous precedent to set, and an area the government cannot be allowed to tamper with.

With that being said, the debate here is more on the motives of the man building the mosque, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. The fact that this man refuses to condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization and has been quoted as saying that America is an "accessory" to 9/11 is disturbing, to say the least. However, arguably the most disturbing statements from this Imam are centered around his belief that our nation must become Shariah compliant. These are not exactly statements from a man who recently claimed to be the "anti-terrorist" and therefore all Americans should be concerned with this mans motives.

It is time we stop turning a blind eye to the moves being made in our nation by muslim leaders. It is time we stop allowing them to claim their religion is a "religion of peace." Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf recently stated, "Our purpose is to interweave America’s Muslim population into the mainstream society." I am here to state again the majority American opinion on this, regardless of the politically incorrect nature of it. MR. ABDUL RAUF...WE DO NOT WANT YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM TO BE INTERWEAVED INTO OUR SOCIETY!!! Your Shariah belief system and crude prehistoric political system disguised as a religion could never mesh with our society and culture of FREEDOM!!

WE DO NOT ACCEPT the beating of women in our country!!!
WE DO NOT ACCEPT the forcing of women to cover their entire bodies in shame!!
WE DO NOT ACCEPT pedophiles and/or the marrying of seven year old girls by men!!
WE DO NOT BELIEVE a woman's testimony is worth half that of a man!!
WE DO NOT ACCEPT a man to have four wives in our country!!
WE DO NOT BELIEVE a woman should be stoned to death for the mere accusation of adultery!!
WE DO NOT FORBID our women to go out of the home alone in this nation!!
WE DO NOT REQUIRE a minimum of four witnesses for a woman to claim she has been raped!!
WE DO NOT ALLOW the mutilation of a female's sexual organs in our country!!
WE DO NOT CONDONE lying in our nation, not even for the furthering of religion!!
WE DO NOT ALLOW religion in this nation to force all to believe it or pay a tax!!

Many of the proponents of this mosque building effort claim that this is our chance to show what our nation stands for, that we stand for freedom and tolerance and that this is our opportunity to reach out and show our muslim brothers that we do not hate them.

Let me ask this question. We aren't the ones who murdered 3,000 innocent civilians on 9/11, nor are we the group who have conducted countless terrorist attacks since the 1970's on non-muslims worldwide. Why is it our duty to reach out and show muslims that we do not hate them when they have shown quite clearly that they, and their Koran's writings clearly demonstrate that they do hate, and will not tolerate us? I say if they truly are a "religion of peace" as they love to claim from one side of their mouths, then let them come forward and reach out to us!! Let them demonstrate that they will tolerate us and conform to our laws and our Constitution. Otherwise LEAVE!! Keep your infiltration concentrated on Europe. We can all witness the havoc your religion is causing in other European nations that have taken this "tolerant" approach to your religion. We do not need that trouble in America and I pray we wake up before it is too late.

Missouri Congressmen in Socialist Party of America

The Socialist Party of America recently released a list of congressmen and women who are members of their organization. That's right, I said the SOCIALIST Party of America! We have been asleep for so long, not paying attention to what was going on behind the scenes in our own government, that socialism has quietly infiltrated our system of liberty and freedom, and now threatens our way of life. We must rise up and vote these people out if we want to save our republic. A republic that we can no longer deny is under attack from within. Many of the members, who can be seen at the below link:

are members that wouldn't surprise those who follow politics, but I am originally from Missouri, and still legally reside in the "Show Me State". I thought it important to additionally list below; for my Missouri readers, the Missouri socialists so that we might spread the word on their open membership in a form of government which goes directly against the Constitution of the United States. We must start getting active in politics Americans. It is our civic duty to maintain and strengthen this way of life that our children and grandchildren will never experience if we don't make a difference NOW, by flushing out this invasion from within.

Missouri Socialists in Congress:

William “Lacy” Clay (MO-01)
Emanuel Cleaver (MO-05)

We do not need socialism in the fine state of Missouri. Get the word out and let's get rid of them!!

Remember The Day The Democrats Took Over.

I received this in my email from a good friend today and thought I'd share it with everyone, as I am sick and tired of hearing that every problem in this country is George W. Bush's fault.  I wrote an article on this on April 13th of 2009.
A year and a half later and the liberals are still using this childish tactic.  This email puts it in better perspective for those who will listen.

Lest we forget....    The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd, 2007.  The day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:  January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:  At the time:  The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77  The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%  The Unemployment rate was 4.6%  George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!  Remember the day...
January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.  The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS! (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy).  And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac????  OBAMA  And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???  OBAMA and the Democratic Congress  So when some one tries to blame Bush...  REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" 
Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving.
Set the record straight on Bush!
