    They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not LOVE their lives so much as to shrink from death. Rev 12:11 There is only one thing standing between America and full employment, its gummit. We have become a country where the people in the wagon has killed and eaten the horses. Now they sit in absolute amazement wondering why they aren't moving. This is the most anti-business administration in a long line of anti-business congress’ leaving an absolute wreck of an economy. Until we shove this wagon full of ingrates...
  • Palin, Walker and a Missed Opportunity

    I personally like Sarah Palin quite a bit. Obviously she's an attractive woman. That never hurts for a start. Added to that, there is depth of character, exemplified by her choosing life for her most recent child and her successful marriage. These are qualities that drive the rabble on the left wild. Someone out there actually walks the walk that they talk. That said, I find myself frustrated over that cat and mouse game she has played with her non-candidacy on the heels of her abdication of the Alaskan Governorship. I suppose this came to mind today in the light...

    Good morning sleepy heads! Hope you got a good nights sleep. Make sure you order a double at Starbucks this morning so you are ready for your day - you've got a lot of explaining to do.Let's talk about this whole recall thing - you know, that groundswell of the grassroots? I'm sure you're confused about the whole thing, but let me give you a hand with this. Let's talk about that difference in the campaign funds spent. Whether it is the sobbing activist on CNN crying that "Democracy is OVER!" or the official press release from the Obama Campaign,...

    Those whom I LOVE I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Rev 3:19 My source inside the White House is saying the internal polls for Wisconsin done by the Obama campaign are absolutely disastrous. Most are not only showing a likely loss in November by the same margin but similar loses in both MN and MI leaving the campaign to wonder how and where to begin. My source says the results as well as the current disappointing turnouts of volunteers and cash are not only pointing to a loss but one that may rival some of the worst...

    ~ FReeper Canteen Presents ~ ~ D-DAY, June 6, 1944 ~ NORMANDY INVASION May 1944 had been chosen at the conference in Washington in May 1943 as the time for the invasion. Difficulties in assembling landing craft forced a postponement until June, but June 5 was fixed as the unalterable date by Eisenhower on May 17. As the day approached and troops began to embark for the crossing, bad weather set in, threatening dangerous landing conditions. After tense debate, Eisenhower and his subordinates decided on a 24-hour delay, requiring the recall of some ships already at sea. Eventually, on...

    DESPERATION! Winning at what cost; Will President Oboma, sacrifice American lives to win? We were told, in 2008, that Candidate Oboma represented a bridge to a future reconciliation of the races in our nation. That was then, and this is the reality.. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Oboma administration has, almost from the start of his term in office, purposely chosen to fracture our nation down race, gender, religious, and socioeconomic lines.. RACE Most recently, the administration has, with the aid of his loyalist in the mainstream media, and a cadre of the usual suspected race-baiters, elevated...

    I know your deeds, your LOVE and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first. Rev 2:19 Oh how the Hope and Change Express has transformed into a rusting piece of scrap metal waiting its turn on the junkyard of histoir. The entire Bama campaign has come down to “it’s still Bush’ fault”. He acts like nobody notices how the H&C Express has failed to leave the station. When you run your entire campaign around change, people begin to expect change for the better not worse. Fortunately for America he never...

    The month of June, 2012 is about to dawn. The next 30 days will encompass a series of important events as only very few months in our country’s history have witnessed. These events, while as different as snowflakes, will intertwine in a way that will make their effects magnified in a manner that few can foresee today. Our country is in the midst of an important election season. In November, a President will be elected, one third of Senators will be elected, and all 435 members of the House will be elected. Additionally, there will be countless elections in the...

    Picture a scenario, where members of your family helped a new neighbor establish a household. Just after helping that neighbor, your family experienced a long illness which caused your entire family to be quarantined and your home foreclosed upon. Then, after several years, you were finally able to return home, plant a garden, and rebuild your family’s life. Just as your household was beginning to prosper again, a heavily armed neighbor named John Wayne Gacy took over your front yard. Instead of using his own house and its crawl space to commit his horrific crimes, he used your yard and...

    It can be argued, by mere observation, that Barack Obama has little fealty to America, and more fealty to certain concepts and ideologies. Those ideologies are Black Liberation Theology, of which he was a student in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ for many decades; of global governance; and of socialism... perhaps even Marxism. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. One may readily discard a politicians words, and instead look to their works. The words are intended to mislead, and the works are intended to achieve. Obama's actions that show his loyalty to a very controversial view,...

    Barack Obama paid tribute to veterans of the Vietnam War with a Memorial Day speech at the Vietnam War Memorial and in an op-ed published in military oriented publications. Missing in action from the president's words of praise for the veterans was why they fought for over ten years in Southeast Asia: to defeat communism.A transcript of Obama's speech given at the Wall, as the memorial is commonly known, published at Fox News shows no mention of the words 'communism' or 'communist.' Nor is there mention that the veterans fought to keep South Vietnam, and by extension the whole of...

    Barack Obama has taken his reelection campaign to new depths with a television ad targeting veterans released last week timed for Memorial Day.Now never mind that Memorial Day is to honor those killed in service while Veterans Day is set aside to honor living service members. We know that Obama has trouble differentiating the two. ("On this Memorial Day as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes--and I see many of them in the audience here today..."

    Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first LOVE. Rev 2:4 Small wonder liberals are such miserable people. To spend your entire life trying to earn your way into heaven when there is no possible chance of earning it brings hopelessness. According to the church of liberalism you have to accept and practice all the liberal doxology to become a truly good person. Being a good person to a liberal means you have to be more liberal and tolerant than those intolerant Conservatives. This is why you end up with people always being frustrated and angry from...

    What the Hawaii AG forced Bennett to do to his request for verification: 1. Withdraw the whole form he submitted. Because the form had no special directions, HRS 338-14.3 would require the HDOH to verify the accurate, legally-probative facts, and HI can't do that for Obama because his birth record is late and amended - and thus not legally probative as per HRS 338-17. 2. Keep the request for verification that asked the HDOH to verify what is on Obama's birth record. The HDOH can do that without claiming that any of those CLAIMS on the BC are actuallly accurate...

    My Native-American name, from now on, is "Molests Your Poodle." You see, I have recently discovered that I am American Indian -- Cherokee, to be precise. How did I come to know that I had this wonderful new heritage? Simple: I read Ben Quigly's article about Elizabeth Warren (who is running for the Senate in Massachusetts), in which he defends her claim to be of Cherokee heritage. Ben produces no evidence that Ms. Warren actually does have Cherokee blood in her veins. In fact, he seems to concede she has none. However, he states that in some metaphysical way, that...

    Barack Obama is "evolving" in his stance on gay marriages. And as he flip-flops on this issue we should not be surprised to see pro-gay marriage initiatives being legislated.   As that happens, we should see a re-write of the directives our Government has here.   General Information   Background In 1996 Congress made the following findings [1]:Marriage is the foundation of a successful society.Marriage is an essential institution of a successful society which promotes the interests of children.In order to encourage States to strengthen marriages, The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 provides funding of $150 million each year for...

    Imagine you had a watchdog. Imagine, further, that it would only bark at and attack female burglars and male burglars would get only a sad look and perhaps a submissive lick or two. This watchdog would not be a very useful guardian, would it? Your house or store would soon end up completely ransacked. This is the situation America faces, with the selective watchdog -- the so-called 'mainstream media' -- that we presently have. When I was very young, and television sets had mechanical channel changers, I lived in a place (Rochester, New York) where the three major network channels...

    Keep yourselves in God’s LOVE as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Jude 1:21 People wonder why the politicians are so enamored by a transportation system which is as inefficient a way of moving people as Light Rail. Every train that has ever been used for transportation has never made money or been a convenient method to get from where you are to where you are going. Never mind a car is far more efficient in every category, the city pols need trains and all the graft and corruption they...
