Looks like the MSN is trolling for sound bites to use against the GOP. You never get this kind of coverage without intent to harm.

“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Do not WORK for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” John 6:27

The Holy Spirit has guided my life for almost four years now. I was called right after Ocommie was elected and have been writing editorials once or twice a week since then. His election and the Obama meltdown directly affected me financially as one of my biggest customers declared bankruptcy while owing me a substantial amount of money. This debt was secured by a large investor in the auto industry who also took a beating and although I have been suffering financially there was never poverty in faith.

Jesus tests our faith in difficult times to prepare you for better days. God has always provided no matter how dark since there was always a view of doing his work and exposing the darkness. A year ago I was near bankruptcy and now I am having the best year of my life.

We have groups of people working in the darkest part of the country spreading the word and beginning to speak the truth of freedom to the Oregon Earth cultists. God has carried us through and now he has rewarded us with a flood of mercy. His mercy is what keeps the enslaved free and gives light to the blind. We are seeing a revival and change starting in the place the Dirt Worshipers began, Oregon.

I have always had the best job in the world as a pure capitalist. Every morning I wake up unemployed and spend the day finding a job to do making something out of nothing. You have to have faith God will provide. Eight weeks ago someone called me from Brooklyn NY and said they were on my website www.braylog.com and asked if I handled Douglas fir logs. I said yes and asked what he was looking for? He said he was building an Ark and needed somewhere between 2-4,000 logs that were around six inches thick and twelve foot long to make the floors of this ark which was scaled to half the size of Noah’s ark. This one was going to be half scale 200 ft long by 40 ft wide and four stories high.

I figured this was a long shot but I like chasing rabbits and asked why he was building an ark and he said they were doing a film and would be starting this soon and would need these logs delivered in four weeks even though it would be 10-12 trucks of logs. I made a few calls on Doug Fir but quickly realized the freight from Oregon to NY was not going to work so moved out to the Rockies and offered bug killed Lodgepole Pine and figured it would look old, grey and dry like you would expect in the desert. When I called I explained you wouldn’t want manufactured poles since those machines wouldn’t be around five thousand years ago and sent some pictures of the bug killed logs.

The following Monday they called and said they liked my logs the best since they looked more authentic than the fence posts I was competing against and doubted they could produce them fast enough. My problem was I was a bit too high so after going back to the mill we were able to get in line pricewise and then waited.

A couple of days later he called and said they wanted to go with the Lodgepole but would need to actually touch and lift the wood to make sure it wasn’t too heavy to work with. He said I needed to meet him in Salt Lake City tomorrow to take a tour so I made arrangements to fly the next day and called the mill for the final details. I questioned the logic of paying $500 for an airfare but figured he wasn’t flying out to look at the scenery so it was probably going to go forward and booked the flight. He sent me his final specs and when I sent it to the mill he realized the logs he produced were too big and would be too heavy. I asked him what that meant and he said it meant he couldn’t produce the order. I couldn’t believe it but I felt God would provide and prayed he would help me solve this issue and help me find the logs.

After calling a couple of producers and being told these logs were impossible and in high demand my phone rang and one of my Colorado mills asked if I had booked a truck for Monday. I said yes and axed, Oh by the way do you have any beetle killed logs 6 inches in diameter? He said he was swimming in them and how many did I need. When I told him 4,000 he said he could do 10,000 and as quick as you needed at a better price then the first supplier. I told him I may be seeing him tomorrow and hung up. I called NY and said forget Salt Lake to meet me in Denver and we would go up into the woods there. We met and drove a hundred miles out of town meeting my logger buddy and we all got along great. He loved the logs, the operation and we basically agreed on the arrangements. He said he would pay our terms then would be confirming everything when we got back.

As we were having lunch we had to find out about this movie. I asked, “So what is this ark, what is it about?” He said it was a movie about Noah, but there was an ark and Noah and the rest is science fiction with computer generated animals. We asked if we knew any of the characters and he said you may know Noah, he is being played by Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins plays Methuselah it turned out the little movie company was Paramount Pictures. Our jaws hit the table. We will complete the shipping next week through Colorado forest fires, rainouts, breakdowns and blown engines and as it turned out there were two arks which were built taking nineteen trucks of logs. These arks are going to be amazing by their massiveness and detail but the look of the logs should be perfect. They really did find the right person for supplying the right logs for the ark a Christian who loves the Lord.

This is what happens with free enterprise ideas and allowing God to work in your life. The set builders had no idea where to get this material and when they got on the internet they happened on someone who could solve their problems. They didn’t call the gummit or some agency, they let the market do its magic and not only did they solve it they have one of the most amazing sets ever created. They called a redneck in little Tualatin Oregon to solve a problem saving their $150 million film in NYC and possibly making it a masterpiece.

The irony that an anti-HollyWhacked Conservative Tea Partier is receiving checks from them is delicious. These arks are going to be the stars of these movies and will remind people no matter what the storyline, God is in control always has and always will. There were miracles in the production of these logs as his mercy showed for me and everyone involved, allowing them to get there on time which will shine through leaving his Rainbow for the entire world to witness. This has really put a rainbow on my life as I know to follow hard after him and he will never let you down as long as you have Faith in God.

Pray for America

Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Bray’s. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.

The DNC talking points have been distributed so expect Rep Akin and the 'war on women' to dominate the discussions.

Anything the least bit detrimental to the GOP will be sliced, diced, shredded and squeezed by the rats and then fed to the gullible.

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for hosting this every Sunday, AB.

It's a startling good lineup this morning. Of course, any Sunday morning without Blabbermouth Shultz, Axeldork, and Schumer is a good Sunday morning.

Rep Blackburn has in fact been on the shows before. Not enough, mind you, and certainly not like Washerwoman, Durbin, Chuck U. Shumer, John McCain, Linda Graham, and the other perennials.

If I was king of the Sunday Shows, I would ban the above for life, or at least until ALL the other 530 Congress people had a few appearances!

Akin needs to get out and let Sarah Palin do her job.She could pull almost anyone across the finish line in a matter of weeks given the opportunity! MO. people hate McQuacksville! They are on to her. She's nothing but a commie shill.

As for Akin he went dumb,said the wrong thing and then compounded the problem by not getting out when his numbers tanked so bad. He doesn't have a prayer.

Our side has not figured it out yet that in an election you either win or lose.Winning is better.Duuhuhhhhh...

The DBM is getting a true pass since Issac will suck up most of the "news" stories and the biggest news about the Republican convention,besides akin and the supposed war on women, for the drivebys will be that it was delayed.

So,,, next week when they interview all dems they can claim fair and balanced but in reality its just another sham.

Morning AB, All.

Of course, as always, I thank our esteemed AB for arising on Sundays and posting this thread. With a bit of smug I tap in and dependably, the thread is always here.

I sure do miss Altura. But if you tell anybody I said that I’ll have to deny it.

Anyways, a quick rant, indulge me, about last night. For even as I type my hands still shake from the terror of it.

Okay, it was only a thunderstorm and goodness ole Isaac is really messing things up down Florida way.

But yon ladies and gems....THIS THUNDERSTORM WOULD NOT STOP!

All night, lightening, thunder, lightening, thunder.

Which if it were just me I might be okay (we lost power for two hours last evening as even then the thunder and lightening was going on) but the DOG....in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, this dog is ten years old, weighs almost a hundred pounds, got teeth that can eat an entire cow, raw. That’s including the bones.

Yet comes the thunder and she’s scared, pacing, panting. I have her come up and sit with me on my handy-dandy Lazyboy type chair. She does at times. She sits and pants, I pet, if I stop petting she nudges arm, I pet more.

She then gets down as the chair sits in front of the window and she don’t like that. She paces and pants and finally, two in the am, husband knocks.

“You need some help with the dog?”

Husband too is scared of thunder boomers but he knows how the dog is so he peeps in to help.

He summons the dog to come with him but one full minute later the dog’s back scratching at the door.

I let her in, she paces, she pants....and on and on.

This booming did not stop until daylight...ALL NIGHT....thunderbooming.

Well I survived but anybody looking for a ten year old dog, can eat an entire cow at one sitting?

The report I saw this morning said Akin’s supporters were encouraging him to get out. Your Sarah solution sounds good and one of the few solutions. If polls continue to show trouble, I can’t imagine him staying in, especially with supporters tugging oh him.

Pretty dry storm.I checked high tide at 5:00am this morning and the water was still a foot from spilling out onto the highway where we live.
the test will come tonight at high tide at 6:01 we will tell if there is any spillage of over the local dock.
Stephany Abrams has been doing a great job for the weather channel(they are actually doing weather this weekend feature that!!)she is at the Southernmost buoy in Key West.

Thanks RG, all. Capitalism and God does work and that is the point.

How do you go through these times worshiping the gummit to carry you without any spiritual healing? That leads to emptiness and ashes which is what we are seeing.

FOX News review:
Unfortunately, Mr. RomneyCARE has doubled down on his
socialized medicine which he PROUDLY takes
as the headpiece of the GOP.
Death Panels are in — and he is PROUD.

Mr. RomneyCARE purports taxes are down in Massachusetts,
but that is not truthful.
There are fewer doctors, longer waits, and the
economy tanked.

Thanks for the ping/thread, AB!

Bob McDonnell on ABC, discussing the Republican Platform: George S. asks about Charlie Crist statement dissing Repubs, and specifically talking about the “Akin amendment” in the platform. McDonnell defends Repubs, but focusses on economic problems.

George talks about no exceptions for rape in the platform - McDonnell says the details are left to Congress/states on how they ratify the “human life amendment”....George will not let it go. So.....McDonnell brings up obama’s positions on babies born alive during an abortion, etc.

Mayor Antonio Vi..somethingoranother - time to take out their positions on abortion in the platform especially since it does not make exceptions for rape and incest. (Side note - it is silly to refer to incest as a seperate condition, IMO. Incest IS rape...no need to seperate it out.)

If the first solution doesn't work, find one that does. How great the ingenuity of entrepreneurs. Congratulations on securing an order which I'm sure gives your business a needed shot in the arm.

Now if we sent your story to Zero and asked for his comments he would reply "You didn't do that". If it weren't for Al Gore inventing the Internet, the Movie producers would never have found you". He would add that because he personally bailed out General Motors, created 10 gazillion jobs, and solved the health care problems of the country the movie industry now is now alive and well and can make movies like this.

Isaac coverage has been fascinating, starting with the drive-bys rooting for the storm to cancel the convention. It’s not been much of a storm, but they continue to hype it. And now there’s a chance it could affect New Orleans later this week. Wouldn’t that be the irony of ironies as the convention winds down.

The timing should put the potential dangerous storm in the middle of nowhere in the gulf during the bulk of the convention, so it could draw some eyes to TV screens during the convention. A New Orleans hit would remind everyone of ‘heck-0f-a-job, Brownie’, but could present lots of challenges for Obie’s FEMA.

Let’s hope it stays as disorganized as it has been and proves once again that weather is not much more than DBM hype and political in nature. I wonder why we’re not seeing any reports from Cuba as a “major” TS is running along its entire northern coast without any apparent disasters. ???

So far, it’s a nothingburger storm. So far.

ABC talking about the middle class. McDonnell says obama wants to talk about Bain Capital and taxes because he doesn’t want to deal with his own record.

Mayor of LA, Antonio V. Ryan/Romney budget will rasise taxes on middle class. Regarding convention - expects Romney won’t be able to “etch-a-sketch” (lol and an eye-roll) their way out the campaign they ran during the primary.

McDonnell says it comes down to the Vision of Romney vs. record of obama. Facts are stubborn things. Results vs. rhetoric.

Actually, our Keys GOP had its major fund raiser for the year at the,(you gotta love it I'm watching my buddy Hank Testor from NBC 6 doing a live shot from a car on Duval Street in Key West,just too good--Sloppy Joe's is closed by the way, LOL!!)sorry for the diversion,anyway we had our major fundraiser at the Double Tree Inn with featured speakers Ileana ros Lehtinen and Herman Cain.Ileana was terrific we gave her several standing "O"'s for her many years of serving us.She has been gerrymandered into a another district and no longer reps us.

Then Cain came on and he rocked the entire resort with over 200 in attendance. His 999 was mentioned as was the fact that we are BROKE need to stop spending make a budget and all the key things that many good conservatives would say.I sat next to a former Miami Herald exec. who also worked for the AP.He told me he was "converted" during John Kerrys run for office.Said he just couldn't take it any more.Today he's a great conservative.

I was allowed to present Cain one of my fishing rods at the end,Morgan may have some of the photos,don't know if they will work here or not. Cain vowed to return to fish with us. he's a great guy,big strong bold,very conservative. It was another night to remember along with last years Reagan dinner with Marco.

Mitt Romney gave such a great reply to Chris Wallace’s question, “how do you Feel about running for president”, that Wallace made a strange, involuntary sound of disgust or disappointment when he heard the answer.

Worth watching to see this moment.

LOFL!

I guess you never did get the memo, huh?

JimRob is now a "Romneybot". Obama the capitalism-hating, liberty-hating, America-hating Marxist must be destroyed!!

He is reluctantly for Romney due to Obama, just like the rest of us here. Yet you continued to insult us by calling us Romneybots, Romney-lovers, and liberals, never acknowledging our reasons or replies--it was all spam and insults, all the time. So do you now follow Jim Robinson around posting these comments? No. You wouldn't dare!

So take you one-dog show somewhere else.
