Happy Birthday America…Freedom is found in God

On  July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed by congress and the US celebrates this day as federal holiday.   Our founding fathers believed in freedom.  They wanted life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The founding fathers believed in God.

James Madison, our fourth president is known as the Father of  our Constitution.  He made the following statement, “We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” Exodus 20:1:26 (NIV) has the ten commandments:

1.  You shall have no other gods before me.

2.  You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything.

3.  You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.

4.  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

5.  Honor your father and your mother.

6.  You shall not murder.

7.  You shall not commit adultery.

8.  You shall not steal.

9.  You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10.  You shall not covet.

God can only save America, not Romney or Obama.

Memorial Day means to us

Amazing grace is Christian  hymn written by English poet and clergyman John Newton (1725-1807), published in 1779.  This song talks about troubles and God leading us  home.  Memorial Day is formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to honor the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War.  We would like honor all the fallen soldiers and all our loved ones that has moved on to Heaven.  This video of Gaither’s :

This song talks about grace.  Too often people do not want to forgive they tend to give up and not try lot of marriages and relationships fell because of misunderstandings and things that can be worked out.  The bible says to have grace in Ephesians 4:31-32 says: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. ”  God gives us grace to forgive other people.  When men and women are in relationship they think very different, and  we know that sometimes spouses forget that.   Whatever disagreement you had with your spouse or anyone else can be worked out with God’s help.  Matthew 18:22-23 says: ‘ Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ” Lord,  how many times shall I forgive brother where he sins against me? Up to seven times?”  Jesus answered, I tell you not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”   If you have unforgiviness toward spouse, family member, or friend you can always forgive them everyone human no one is perfect.  Today is the day to forgive. If your are not saved Jesus can forgive you today.  Here a song by the Gaither’s “Please Forgive me”.{ Please forgive me I need your grace to make it thru, all I have in you I’m at your mercy.  Lord I will serve till my dyeing day, help others find away I’m at your mercy. Please forgive.}  These are some of the words in this song.   Jesus is Love and we are praying for you!

“I’ll always bring you roses….”

Memorial Day didn’t start out as a day to get drunk and eat too many hotdogs. It began as a day for a grieving nation to honor the dead that fought for freedom at Gettysburg. We don’t know it, but these dead still haunt us…..

My wife is the positive one (in case you couldn’t tell. God has a great sense of humor, because He caused this positive, up beat woman to marry a very morose old man. She wrote about music. I will write about grief.

When I was a kid, I grew up on a farm. The farm was roughly equidistant between two towns. Other than the fact that the towns are in Oklahoma, I’ll keep the locations anonymous, for now, so that I can keep my secret identity.

My family barely celebrated Memorial Day. In fact, being farmers, we really weren’t much for celebrating any holiday at all. But, when I got older, Dad would take me to the cemetary, put up the wreathes (I have no idea how old the wreathes were….they were fake, and we’d used them about every year for about fifteen years that I remember). It didn’t mean much to me, till I was thirteen.

Several things were going on, then. Dad had lost his job, and his drinking was getting worse. And I was in love for the first time, and hopelessly so. So I guess I was finally ready for the message of Memorial Day.

Flander’s Field. This field saw bloody fighting, and became a grave sight for thousands upon thousands of soldiers. A Lt. Col. wrote a poem about this place. John MCrae. He died after four years of service.

On that Memorial Day, Dad took me to a stone, that had the names of all the fallen veteran’s from the town. The numbers of fallen from each World War both were greater than the population of the town. The town has yet to recover from either war. This is why we ‘celebrate’ Memorial Day.

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises as our Republic Falls

The Dark Knight Rises is coming soon. I used to identify with Batman, but more and more, I identify with the Joker.

So I’m sitting at a sales meeting. And they announce that The Dark Night Rises is coming out. I used to be a big geek….still am, when I have the time. I loved Batman. A very small part of me hoped that I might become super-rich, so I could be Batman. But now, I’m so tired….if I had all that money, I’d probably buy an island and disappear.

Anyway…..here is the trailer we watched.

The Dark Knight Rises-Official Teaser

So, I’m thinking, “These corporate clowns watch this trailer, that warns them of the increasing discontent among the poor, and they don’t even realize that it convicts them! How can they live so large, and leave so little for the rest of us……

I’m sure my bosses think that they are Batman. I suppose that makes me the Joker…..

There ain’t room in this town for the both of us….

Ron Paul is not finished yet

I would like to honor Ron Paul today.  He is the only one that inspired me to study more about the Constitution and the our Founding Fathers.   Here is short video about Ron Paul talking Constitution.

When you have public schools wanting to take history out you will have a problem.  My hats go off to Ron Paul for helping common people to understand history.

Here a bit of history about how Ron Paul can still win.

Ron Paul has encouraged me to have faith and I want to thank him for Passing the Faith along….Gaither song

Thank you Ron Paul for all that you have done for this Country!

Ron Paul will not bow to the media

Daniel 3:16-18 says:  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before in this matter.  If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king.  But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Ron Paul is very humble man of God.

Here a story of Veggie Tales

Ron Paul stands up for what he believes in

The media is like bunny in this song

Here is Gaither song

For far too long, America has been bowing before the idol of Molech. The god of gold. The god of money. Easy, false profits. Corporate America has combined with Washington D. C. Together, they have erected their monuments to their false gods, and those false gods have seemed to reward them with quick riches, immense power, and everything that goes with that.

Its time that we remembered what is important. God. Jesus Christ. Family. Liberty. Our Constitution. Fulfilling our promises. Serving each other, instead of only serving ourselves. Lets do the right thing, this time around. Instead of mindlessly voting for the lesser of two evils, as we have done for the last 24 years, lets vote for someone who stands for the same things we do. Who believes the same things we do. And who votes for the things they believe. This time around, let’s vote for Ron Paul.

Fighting the Federal Leviathan

Ted Nugent is in the news. I guess he made some comments that are getting the Secret Service motivated to investigate him. He said at an NRA meeting that he would probably be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama is reelected. Personally, I take back all the negative things I’ve said about the Secret Service….if they still have the energy to investigate this guy after all their sex-romps in Latin America, then they are truly dedicated! But then….for all we know, their investigation may simply be a million dollar grant to spend three weeks in the bunny ranch while they watch Ted Nugent videos….

Sometimes I’m afraid that I’ve been teleported to Bizzaro World. Superman is robbing banks while Lex Luthor is trying to protect the innocent. This whole world seems backward. Ron Paul supports the Constitution and Christian values, so we vote for the people who are destroying our Constitution and trying to undermine Christianity: but I won’t name any names here….I’m kind of getting tired of fighting the good fight.

Ron Paul’s money bomb didn’t make the money he said he needed. I don’t know what that means, because the media is so eager to be rid of him. Anything he does is a sign that he’s about to bow out. I wonder if the Sanhedrin had the same attitude about Christ. “He raised Lazarus from the dead…..that means that His power must be weakening…if He were all that powerful, He’d have healed Lazarus before he even died!” Bizzaro World

has been around for a long, long time…..

My good friend Jeff sent a comment on how he has been feeling about things. It’s where I’ve stolen the title to this post (see….I’m already adapting to the Bizarro lifestyle….)

First off, he talks about the song, Uprising, by Muse. I personally know nothing about the group or the song, but I’m listening to it now, and the words are frighteningly similar to what is going on in my head as I type.

The imagery from the video reminds me of the dystopic moods of these last days. I love the Beltane in it, the purification through fire of all the degradation of the past. And the Vampire-teddy bears that rise up from the ground. The child-like qualities inside of us rising up to fight the Screwtape inspired nothingness that pretends to be “adult.”

Hopefully this won’t upset the wifer.

Super Ron Paul video game

Good Patrick Henry

“Here’s to you Mr. Jefferson” Awesome! by Mike Church

When I was still young and idealistic, I used to put together mixed tapes. They weren’t usually tapes of romantic songs (though there were a few of them mixed in here and there). I didn’t date until I was 25 (no mystery to anyone that follows this blog….maybe if I’d been a Secret Service Agent). The more….interesting of these tapes I called schizophrenic tapes. The beginning of one of these had a scream edited in, followed immediately by Genesis’ Land of Confusion. I thought about putting that song in, but I think I’ll post this version instead. First of all, this one doesn’t dishonor Reagan. And second of all…I think all the Japanimation in this video really hits home (I’m going to watch it again as I post, to make sure there’s nothing too inappropriate in it….)

Disturbed-Land of Confusion

Often over the last forty years, I’ve felt as though I was living in the Last Days…if not of the world, at least of our freedoms. And sometimes I had apocolyptic visions like those in the above video. And sometimes, in my minds eye I’d just see Jesus….monumental, huge…like the statue over Rio….only with grief in His wonderful face. Grief for all the horrible things we’ve done. Grief for betraying Him. For taking a beautiful world He meant us to enjoy, and turning it into a cesspool instead. It totally blows my mind that He would die for people like us. I guarantee, if I were Jesus, you wouldn’t see me on the Cross…..

Gaither Vocal Band-When I cry

Atlas shrugged, too

Obamacare got its day in court. But I wonder if it really matters whether we keep it, or not. The underpinnings of our society are shifting in chaos. Unless a just and merciful God intervenes, I wonder if my child will know half of the freedoms and advantages I have known.

Atlas Shrugged 2 is being filmed. They offered Jerry Doyle a part as a stand in. On his show today, he turned them down. I understand. Its not so much that he doesn’t want to play a part in awakening our society. Its just….who really wants to have their role relegated into insignificance?

After all, isn’t that what it is all about. Jerry Doyle wants to matter, so he wants to do voice overs….or at least, do something more effective than having a bit part as a stand in. Obama wants to matter. So he drums up this health care agenda, and rams it down our throats whether we like it or not. (To me, I can’t help but think that he wasted a perfect opportunity. If he’d done more selling it to the American people, and acted less like Big Brother, people that hate and fear him would probably love him instead). And I want to matter. So, after a long day on the dreary job, I come home and plunk out another post, hoping that at least one person will see it, and maybe….just maybe…..wake up.

How are we Americans supposed to wake up every day, leave our families, go to work, come home, and repeat the drill day after day while our government makes bureaucratic statements with no connection to reality? Michael Savage, Savage Nation, Pg. 142.

Ron Paul intellectually pummels Mitt Romney into submsission

Big government, big corporations, all expect us to buy the party line without doing any thinking of our own. We’re just supposed to accept the Big Lie, smile with confidence, and go back to work, doing what we are told. We don’t need our own opinions. If we needed them, Big Brother would have told us so. Remember, war is peace.

The ability of a country to pay taxes must always be proportional in a great degree to the quantity of money in circulation and to the celerity with which it circulates.- Hamilton. Federalist 12.

Ron Paul on the U. S. banking system

You’ve heard of the Golden Rule….? No, not the one that Ron Paul quoted and got booed for! The other one! The real one (in the minds of the despots who seek to enslave us). He who owns the gold makes the rules. So, the big corporations, the big banks, and the big government bureaucrats all try to manipulate the money. Why? So they can manipulate us! They can enslave us, while maintaining a fiction that we are free. Remember, freedom is slavery.

It is evident…that it is impratisable to raise any very considerable sums by direct taxation. Tax laws have in vain been multiplied, new methods to enforce the collections have in vain been tried, the public expectation has been uniformly dissapointed, and the treasuries of the States have remained empty.- Hamilton Federalist 12.

Ron Paul on taxes

Ron Paul: “income tax=involuntary servitude

As George Orwell so eloquently stated in 1984, its not enough to merely have power  over people. In order to prove that you have power over the people, you must make them suffer.

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-forever. George Orwell, 1984

Some of the book is hard to take, but here are some of the best quotes for those that want a Cliff’s Notes version:

1984 quotes

But then, we really don’t want people reading. Ignorance is strength.

 

 

Media hides Ron Paul’s light under bushal.

My wife dug up this information. I think it will be very revealing.

1. Ron Paul won the Virgin Islands. Nobody told us!….

Ron Paul won U.S. Virgin Islands with 29% Media claims Romney won!

Look, the media can keep hiding the truth from us, but sooner or later the truth will come out. I don’t know if it will be in time to save the Ron Paul candidacy (or, for that matter, our republic), but the American people will eventually hear the truth.

For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all. Luke 8:17

2. Pat Robertson has seen the light, and now wants to legalize marijuana….sound like anyone else we know…?

Look, I’m pretty strong against drugs myself. I’ve been a believer in the war on drugs for twenty-five years now. But I can attest to you that something is just not working. My old route had so many meth-heads, they would introduce themselves to you with the words, “I am so high…” and they weren’t joking! The war on drugs is doing exactly what Prohibition did. It’s just driving people into the criminal element. We’re putting people in prison and hardening them, when we should be treating them for addiction and helping them. Pat Robertson recently acknowledged all of this (though he still doesn’t support Ron Paul…but hey! nobody’s perfect!)

http://www.patrobertson.com/recentnews/marijuana-3-12.asp

3. If we are Christians, we want to build bridges between the people, not walls. Only Ron Paul is doing that.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a Christian, and not even remotely a Muslim. I hear the message that most terrorism is Muslim. I know that it was Muslims that flew planes into our towers. But Christ died for us all. He even died for the Roman that hammered the nail into His hand. I’m not saying we should be weak. I’m not advocating that we demilitarize and let the Muslims destroy us. But I did go to school with some Muslims during the First Gulf War. I know that a lot of Kuwaitis came to our church at the time, and cried unfeigned tears when they were told that we Christians had compassion on them and their country. That we were praying for them and their families, as these young men and women waited to hear what was happening to their families that were caught in the storm of Saddam Hussein‘s  fury. I don’t know if these people ever became Christians, but I can tell you two things, 1) none of those Kuwaiti’s ever killed any Americans, and 2) they came away knowing that the stories told at home about how bad all Christians were fabrications.

The only candidate that is even seeking the Muslim vote is Ron Paul. While all of the others rattle their sabers and frighten these people, Ron Paul tries to heal the wounds between our people.

Ron Paul picks up Arab-American endorsements

To sum it all up, Ron Paul is a true lover of people. There was a Christian fad a few years ago. You may remember it. WWJD. What would Jesus do? I will tell you, He uttered the words, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” It seems only Ron Paul can claim that title.

My wife hopes you will like this video. It speaks about the love of God for his people. The atheist readers may not like the video. That’s fine.  My wife and I love you all.
