A look back at the beginning of this country and the Christian morals that were instilled in the US military. Now look for it only in movies, and tales of veterans who loved this Christian institution, "for it is no more than a dream remembered,......gone with the wind."

During my first week of basic training in the USAF in 1956 I had to attend a religious service of my choice and write to my parents.

Nobody in my flight thought it to be ridiculous.

OK, all WHAT event(s) caused this? Don’t say Obama because it had to have occurred over time.

This little tract was widely circulated by moi and hundreds of others during the 70s as the Carter fiasco unwound into its well-deserved death spiral. As you read it, if you were an adult at that time, ask yourself what you were doing to halt the rot that has, with the exception of a short hiatus during the Reagan years -- advanced to the full blown cancer now consuming this country and, with it, the birthright of your children and grandchildren? It's not too late to move out of "Bystander" status but probably soon will be.

As Reagan once opined "If now us, who? If not now, WHEN?"

If so inclined, please share.

PRAYER FOR OUR COUNTRY

 

O my Jesus, You said, "verily I say to you, whatsoever you shall ask the Father in My name, He will give it to you."  Behold, in your name I humbly ask our Heavenly Father to protect every man, woman, and child in our great nation from those who want to delete your name from our society, i.e. on our money, in our courts, and in our schools.  Protect us from plans of destruction from which our enemies have plotted. 

 

You, Heavenly Father, are the real foundation of our nation.  I thank you for making me a citizen of this land of freedom and unlimited opportunity...which are the results of its Christian base. 

 

Please surround and protect us, and our military with Your love and mercy...in Jesus' name. 

Amen

I was at the birthplace of liberty, Lexington and Concord, last weekend. By “the rude bridge that arched the flood” there is an obelisk erected in the 1800s commemorating “the first forcible Resistance to British aggression . On the opposite bank stood the American Militia, on this, the invading army..” etc.

Anyway, a gaggle of 'yout' (mixture of white and black, all dressed in "ghetto" style attire) were standing there at the same time as me. They read the inscription and one of them said, "yoooooo, agenda much? The guy who wrote this had an agenda, mahn!"

The park ranger on duty began talking to them about the American spirit, but they seemed to be of the opinion that the Brits couldn't be invading because, hey homie, America belonged to Britain. But overall they seemed pretty uninterested and wandered off in short order.

A sad commentary on the unpatriotic attitude of America's modern youth.

In many places today, the military is anti religious.

Many here think that the Military is the last back stop to full blown tyranny. In the end they will just follow orders.
