Sunday Sermonette II

The Law for Today
May 31, 2009

"And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?" (Deuteronomy 4:8)

God has never dealt with any nation as closely and fully as He has with Israel, but He nevertheless is directly concerned with every nation as a national entity. He has actually established each nation Himself (Deuteronomy 32:8), even determining the geographical boundaries of each and the time when each would rise and fall (Acts 17:26).

Every nation has a purpose in history, but Israel had the highest calling of all. God personally gave them (through Moses) the finest governmental and legal system any nation ever had (Deuteronomy 4:5-8), and modern governments would therefore do well to emulate these, in so far as possible. In fact, it is amazing that this Mosaic legal code has since served effectively as the basic legal code for all the greatest nations in modern history. This, in itself, is clear testimony to its divine origin, and is therefore justification for retaining and implementing it wherever possible, even today.

Sadly, however, modern political and judicial practices are departing further and further from this divine standard. The philosophies of evolution and relativism dominate our schools of law today, and the concept of absolute principles of righteousness and justice, rooted in the nature of God as Creator and in His revelation, are largely being replaced by legislation based on evolving social policies and preferences. Even the Ten Commandments are banned from our schools, despite the fact that they are engraved in the Supreme Court building itself.

It is sobering to consider that God did not even spare His beloved nation Israel when His people departed from His law. Nor will He spare America, if our growing rebellion against His Word goes on much longer.

Sunday Sermonette

In Everything Give Thanks
May 29, 2009

"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herds in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation." (Habakkuk 3:17-18)

It is easy to be happy and cheerful in times of prosperity, when one has all the comforts of an affluent lifestyle, and everything seems to be going well. The testing times come, however, when these material comforts are somehow taken away, and one feels defeated and all alone.

Except for God! Whatever else may fail, God "will never leave thee, nor forsake thee" (Hebrews 13:5). Since we still have the Lord (assuming we have trusted Him for forgiveness and salvation, through Christ), we can always "rejoice in the Lord, . . . in the God of my salvation."

Job, for example, lost all his possessions, then his children, finally his health, and even his wife turned against him. Yet he could say: "the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD" (Job 1:21).

God has commanded the Christian: "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you" (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Not for everything, but in everything!

This has always been one of the greatest testimonies a Christian can give to an unbeliever--the testimony of a life rejoicing in God's salvation even in the midst of trouble. This was the example of Christ Himself, "who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2). "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory" (2 Corinthians 4:17).

Poverty or Privilige?

I’ve been hoping that someone might be bold enough to rain on the Sotomayor “compelling life story” parade.
The woman grew up in the capital of the world, went to two Ivy League schools, and was blessed by Providence with the precisely correct right race-gender two-fer for the moment.
This is a story of privilege, dammit, not adversity.
Show me a Montana girl of un-useful ethnicity who put herself through law school waiting tables, after being left with two young children when her Army husband was killed overseas, and I’ll start oohing and aahing over her compelling story.
Of course, such a person would never ever end up on any President’s short-list, no matter if she graduated first in her class at her non-Ivy institution, no matter how extreme the intelligence and dedication and hard work she displayed over the subsequent course of her career. That’s simply how the world — and especially the legal world — is constructed today.
It’s so much easier to take a properly-credentialed member of the East Coast elite and hold her up as a shining example of American meritocracy instead, because she is conveniently hued and delayed her entry to the world of the well-heeled until the age of 18 or so. Easy, and misleading. Feugh!
h/t: unknown

Like my reader, and I’m sure a lot of other Americans, I get mighty annoyed by the unspoken implication in a lot of commentary that anyone not a member of a Protected Minority must have grown up in a twelve-bedroom lakeside mansion and been chauffered off to prep school with a silver spoon in his mouth. Judge Sotomayor was raised in public housing? So was I. Her mother was a nurse working late shifts? So was mine. When did white working poor people disappear off the face of the earth? Where are the eager listeners to their “compelling stories”?
Was it really not possible to correct past injustices without creating an entire — and apparently permanent — class convinced that accidents of geography or biology have gifted them with special insight, wisdom, and “empathy”?

h/t: John Derbyshire on The Corner From a a post at


"The evidence is becoming overwhelming. The Kenyan intends to eliminate, or silence, his political opposition. The recent Department of Homeland Insecurity report labeling all conservatives as potential terrorists is reminiscent of Adolph Hitler. His Directive 11 ordered SS Einsatzgruppen to seek out and destroy all opposition to the Reich in conquered countries. Oppposition included possession of American books,or radio's tuned to British or Allied broadcasts( If an Einsatzgruppen Officer heard a British voice when he turned on your radio during a mandatory search of your home, you were shot immediately) or literature deemed unsupportive of the Reich's position. Other quick tickets to a grave or a concentration camp included, American cars, cigarettes, food, electronic devices, clothes, or any other item that wasn't produced and taxed in the Reich. History offers us a template for tyranny, if we have the courage to recognize it."

Well, how would it sound to the rest of the country if I, the president, being of German ancestry, insisted that all the justices, cabinet and all other positions of authority were filled with only those of German ancestry; with absolutely no regard to any “old” lingering doubts about connections to the Nazi party? Or how about all those “innocent” bund meetings I attended in 1940 and 1941? Should that set off any warning alarms? How about the fact that my “real” last name in German means “hangman” or “executioner?”
I hope my intent here is clear. We have a marxist (at least leaning) leader, with friends he learned from, who were bombers, radicals, was himself a lawyer training other radicals, giving high government positions to others of his ilk, and then attempting on his first justice appointment putting forth a nominee known to belong to a La Raza group. And sitting on a district bench and being recorded while making light regarding legislating from the bench. All the while saying that she is uniquely qualified to be sensitive to others of her particular “bent” and upbringing. Then he has the gall to say he doesn’t understand why white Americans are complaining about his choice.

Government Coercion?

There's a strong rumble floating around on the net about the possibility that the Gov't. may be dictating to Chrysler the dealerships earmarked to go away as those dealership owners who donate regularly to the Republican party. Nazi Germany, anyone?!

I've done some research and this seems like it may be the case. Auto dealers, as a whole, give 2 to 5 times more to Republican campaigns, as those who give to the Democrat's campaigns. One of the dealers in Las Vegas that is closing is owned by a U.S. Army veteran who gives campaign money exclusively to Republican causes.

Memorial Day Tribute

BHO and Harry Reid

Welcome to Las Vegas, President Obama, on Tuesday May 26, 2009.

While you are doing your darndest to give Harry Reid a much needed nudge back into the Senate for another 6 wasted years, I hope you make arrangements for his campaign to pay the approximately $360,000 of taxpayer money back to the coffers for the money you're wasting for the flight to Vegas from D.C.

I didn't, nor would I ever vote for him, and a good portion of that money comes from the citizenry of Nevada who don't want him for even their dog catcher. Since when was taxpayer money supposed to go for a lame-duck campaign?

Oh yes, and please, while you're here, don't buzz the high-rises in town. We're a little stressed over 9-11 too! Please restrict the photo ops to D.C. They like that kind of crap there.

Memorial Day- Mark Steyn

Seasons of Steyn
Sunday, 24 May 2009
Here's a column we get a lot of requests for - from five years ago, Memorial Day 2004:
Memorial Day in my corner of New Hampshire is always the same. A clutch of veterans from the Second World War to the Gulf march round the common, followed by the town band, and the scouts, and the fifth-graders. The band plays "Anchors Aweigh," "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," "God Bless America" and, in an alarming nod to modernity, Ray Stevens' "Everything Is Beautiful (In Its Own Way)" (Billboard No. 1, May 1970). One of the town's selectmen gives a short speech, so do a couple of representatives from state organizations, and then the fifth-graders recite the Gettsyburg Address and the Great War's great poetry. There's a brief prayer and a three-gun salute, exciting the dogs and babies. Wreaths are laid. And then the crowd wends slowly up the hill to the Legion hut for ice cream, and a few veterans wonder, as they always do, if anybody understands what they did, and why they did it.
Before the First World War, it was called Decoration Day - a day for going to the cemetery and "strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion." Some decorated the resting places of fallen family members; others adopted for a day the graves of those who died too young to leave any descendants.
I wish we still did that. Lincoln's "mystic chords of memory" are difficult to hear in the din of the modern world, and one of the best ways to do it is to stand before an old headstone, read the name, and wonder at the young life compressed into those brute dates: 1840-1862. 1843-1864.
In my local cemetery, there's a monument over three graves, forebears of my hardworking assistant, though I didn't know that the time I first came across them. Turner Grant, his cousin John Gilbert and his sister's fiance Charles Lovejoy had been friends since boyhood and all three enlisted on the same day. Charles died on March 5, 1863, Turner on March 6, and John on March 11. Nothing splendid or heroic. They were tentmates in Virginia, and there was an outbreak of measles in the camp.
For some reason, there was a bureaucratic mixup and the army neglected to inform the families. Then, on their final journey home, the bodies were taken off the train at the wrong town. It was a Saturday afternoon and the stationmaster didn't want the caskets sitting there all weekend. So a man who knew where the Grants lived offered to take them up to the next town and drop them off on Sunday morning.
When he arrived, the family was at church, so he unloaded the coffins from his buggy and left without a word or a note to anyone. Imagine coming home from Sunday worship and finding three caskets waiting on the porch. Imagine being young Caroline Grant, and those caskets contain the bodies of your brother, your cousin and the man to whom you're betrothed.
That's a hell of a story behind the bald dates on three tombstones. If it happened today, maybe Caroline would be on Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric demanding proper compensation, and the truth about what happened, and why the politicians were covering it up. Maybe she'd form a group of victims' families. Maybe she'd call for a special commission to establish whether the government did everything it could to prevent disease outbreaks at army camps. Maybe, when they got around to forming the commission, she'd be booing and chanting during the officials' testimony, as several of the 9/11 families did during Mayor Rudy Giuliani's testimony.
All wars are messy, and many of them seem small and unworthy even at the moment of triumph. The sight of unkempt lice-infested Saddam Hussein yanked from his spider hole last December is not so very different from the published reports of Jefferson Davis’ capture in May 1865, when he was said to be trying to skulk away in women's clothing, and spent the next several months being depicted by gleeful Northern cartoonists in hoop skirts, petticoats and crinolines (none of which he was actually wearing).
But, conquered and captured, an enemy shrivels, and you question what he ever had that necessitated such a sacrifice. The piercing clarity of war shades into the murky greys of post-war reconstruction. You think Iraq's a quagmire? Lincoln's "new birth of freedom" bogged down into a century-long quagmire of segregation, denial of civil rights, lynchings. Does that mean the Civil War wasn't worth fighting? That, as Al Gore and other excitable types would say, Abe W. Lincoln lied to us?
Like the French Resistance, tiny in its day but of apparently unlimited manpower since the war ended, for some people it's not obvious which side to be on until the dust's settled. New York, for example, resisted the Civil War my small town's menfolk were so eager to enlist in. The big city was racked by bloody riots against the draft. And you can sort of see the rioters' point. More than 600,000 Americans died in the Civil War - or about 1.8 percent of the population. Today, if 1.8 percent of the population were killed in war, there would be 5.4 million graves to decorate on Decoration Day.
But that's the difference between then and now: the loss of proportion. They had victims galore back in 1863, but they weren't a victim culture. They had a lot of crummy decisions and bureaucratic screw-ups worth re-examining, but they weren't a nation that prioritized retroactive pseudo-legalistic self-flagellating vaudeville over all else. They had hellish setbacks but they didn't lose sight of the forest in order to obsess week after week on one tiny twig of one weedy little tree.
There is something not just ridiculous but unbecoming about a hyperpower 300 million strong whose elites - from the deranged former vice president down - want the outcome of a war, and the fate of a nation, to hinge on one freaky jailhouse; elites who are willing to pay any price, bear any burden, as long as it's pain-free, squeaky-clean and over in a week. The sheer silliness dishonors the memory of all those we're supposed to be remembering this Memorial Day.
Playing by Gore-Kennedy rules, the Union would have lost the Civil War, the rebels the Revolutionary War, and the colonists the French and Indian Wars. There would, in other words, be no America. Even in its grief, my part of New Hampshire understood that 141 years ago. We should, too.

Complex Problem-Simple Solution

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as "The One". He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed." And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said "We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Change is good!" Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,"---- And the people said "Sock it to them!" "---- and redistribute their wealth.." And the people said, "Show us the money!" And then He said, "Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody" And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One" ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized. One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom! Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple.. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!" Then "The One" said, "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One" said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Show us the money!" Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said, "I shall mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!" Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas." And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?" Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, "Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!" Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted.. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing...." And the people said, "Hallelujah!!" And they made him King! And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support. Then "The One" said, "I am the "The One" - The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more..." And the people said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!" And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon "The One" and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung.. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope.. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built. And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too late, and their homeland was no more. Now, you may think this is a fairy tale, but it's not. It's happening as we speak.


2Chr. 7 13-14 NASB: "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

On the left knowing what's in the "expletive deleted" bills they vote for.

Isn't it wonderful that the left has their agenda all mapped out in advance? That way they don't have to know anything except when to holler "aye" at the top of their lungs to vote on something that was in the planning beforehand and of which they know nothing. They all sound like Sgt. Schultz, "I know nothing, I see nothing." Isn't that what "the rest" all voted for?

Does the baby get to choose?

I’m a Southern Baptist and we all agree with the Catholic stance. The Bible says “Thou shalt not kill.” In the original Hebrew this translates more directly to “Thou shalt not murder.” This differentiates it from the killing that goes on in wartime for just causes, and court judgements for the death penalty. “Thou shalt not murder.” Period, end of argument. I/we believe that life begins at the time of conception. I won’t spend the time here to give you a biology lesson, as that would lend nothing. The Declaration of Independence declares that all have the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” How can our country even entertain the thought that we can arbitrarily take that right away from someone who is defenseless as is a fetus? Especially when the party or parties to the conception find it inconvenient. To my mind the woman’s right to choose ends just before she climbs into bed. I’m trying not to be too blunt here, given your age. Just because a baby may or may not be inconvenient does not make it right to kill that baby. Adoption is always a very viable alternative, even in cases of financial hardship or even rape. There is always someone who would love that child and give it a good, loving home rather than see it murdered.
I agree with Stephanie that you should Google search for info. on Margaret Sanger. For that matter so should everyone, especially those Jewish or black, because they are the reason she founded Planned Parenthood to, in her words, “get rid of those inferior types.” That’s the reason Adolf Hitler was so enamoured with her beliefs, and used it to fuel the rage at the Jews, and eventually Christians, and darker complected peoples like gypsys, blacks, and then even mentally handicapped or ill. He was an equal opportunity “murderer.” And I fear that “his highness, the annointed one” is not too far off in the running for next up for that title. If he keeps running headlong to change all the values that America has stood for lo these many years, he’s working overtime to achieve the title.

A Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who’s hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our president. The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”.. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. ‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, and he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb a** put him up there to begin with’.

Joshua's Long Day

"And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel." (Joshua 10:14)
One of the most amazing events of history occurred when "the LORD fought for Israel" to enable them to conquer and occupy the Promised Land, even to the extent that, on one occasion, "the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day" (Joshua 10:13).
Some quibble about the language employed, suggesting that Joshua thought the sun "moves," instead of the earth. The fact is, the motion of any heavenly body must be given in terms of relative motion (since all objects in the universe are moving in some way). Scientists normally assume the fixed point of zero motion to be the one which makes their equations most convenient to use, and this usually is the earth's surface at the location of the observer. Joshua's language was . . . quite scientific!
Furthermore, many scholars have documented numerous traditions of a "long day" (or "long night," in the western hemisphere) about the time of Joshua. The biblical story is well supported as a real fact of history. There was a long day!
Such an event required the direct intervention of the Creator Himself. He who had started the earth rotating in the first place, when He separated day and night (Genesis 1:3-5), now slowed it down again until it stopped, and the daylight continued until Joshua could rout the Amorites.
God may not usually answer prayers and fulfill promises by such a mighty miracle as this, but He does answer prayer and keep His Word, and this unique event shows He is willing and able to do whatever is needed to accomplish His will. "The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went. . . . Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people" (Habakkuk 3:11-13). HMM

An American Patriot

Threedonia friends and family, I am going to give you a history lesson. Not that any of you need it, but I shall tell a short story of a true American patriot. Not a hero, but a simple man who lived his life productively with God as his lighthouse in the midst of darkness. Grandpa John or Ivan was born in a small southern Russian village named Frank, Russia around 1880. When Grandpa John was 18 or so, he and Grandma John (Mrs. Ivan there) being 100% German were starting to feel the pressure of unrest and prejudice because of their German-ness. As we all know the Russians didn’t care much for the Germans. This, even though the contingent my grandparents were with in Russia had been invited to live and farm there by the wishes of Russian Queen Catherine the Great. Those days were gone, and the countryside was rife with rumors of war and injustice everywhere. They and other Ivans, Johanns, Fritzes, etc., set sail in an old commercial sailing ship to come to America. My grandparents had a two year old boy, my uncle, who died on board ship and was buried at sea. They landed in Canada (blasted Canadian roots!) and worked in Canada on a farm for a couple of years while their visas were being ”bureaucratized” for entry into the United States.
This man was my grandfather on my mom’s side. He was the predecessor of fritz8945 (that’s me). Even though I was not named for him, there were at least 8944 Fritzes before me, or variations of Fritz; such names as Fred, Frederick, Freddie, Froedrick (in the Frankenstein branch of the family tree). Every one in the family, except grandpa had a form of the name Fritz somewhere lurking in their names, or not too far off.
Fast forward a few years and the rest of the Johanns, Ivans, Johns, and Fritzes, Freds, and Fredericks were born, six in total. By this time they had all settled in Lincoln, Nebraska in an area of town populated pretty much by only other Germans from Russia. They were pretty much frowned upon by the other good people of Lincoln not because of their German roots, but because they were from Russia. They had not an ounce of Russian blood, as all were German, but that didn’t matter. The people in town, my mother told me, called them a variety of names usually ending with the derogatory “dirty Russian” (pronounced Rooshian).
My Grandpa never learned to drive, nor owned a car. He walked to and from downtown Lincoln everyday for the rest of his life to get a newspaper. He worked as a carpenter for the C.B.& Q. Railroad (this being the forerunner of the BN Railroad for which I worked for 20 years). His English was broken but understandable, being as he was self taught by listening to the radio and reading the newspaper.My Grandparents became American citizens, and were very proud of our country, flying the American Flag in front of their house everyday until their deaths at the ages of 88.
Fast forward to World War II,and my uncle Fritz (again a form of Fred, Frederick, Freddie, etc.) went to Germany of all places to fight against the evil Adolf Hitler and his cronies. This is the man whom I was named after. He fought blood Germans, even though he was a blood German. He fought this battle because of who his father was, a true American.
God was good to my Grandparents and Fritz, the warrior, came home after the war alive and well. My Grandpa helped build the Lutheran Church in which the entire family worshiped. That church is still used for services to this day.
Grandma passed away and for the next 6 months Grandpa continued to walk to downtown Lincoln for a newspaper everyday. The American flag continued to be flown in front of the house. Within those 6 months he became ill and died of pneumonia in the hospital, fully desiring to be in Heaven with his wife of about 60 years and the Lord. After his death, the family remaining in Lincoln flew that American flag at half-mast in honor of a true American patriot.
Grandpa John, Johann or Ivan and Grandma John, Johann or Ivan were never to themselves, ever anything but Americans. They weren’t German-American, nor Russian American, nor German-Russian-American, but 100% American. They were proud of the country that allowed them the free choices the founding fathers set forth in the Declaration of Independance and the Constitution and the freedom to worship the God of their fathers. They didn’t have Medicare, they never accepted welfare nor partook of any other social program handouts. They gave, quite literally, until it hurt, but reaped the blessings of their gifts. They always gave to our country and never took from it.
God bless America, the founding fathers, my grandparents and those many among us here who may have similar stories. All of us here fighting to keep the America we love safe and free.

Running a country---into the ground!

Cap & trade,cap & trade, cap & trade, cap & trade, cap & trade, cap & trade, cap & trade. Monotonous, isn't it. You think that's bad, wait till we get it. And that's not all. They want to tax sugared soda, Twinkies, oreos, etc. Anything that can, in their eyes, cause potential health issues. This, of course has naught to do with the cap & trade which is the "global warming" bucket of "expletive deleted." The latter is thanks to the new, improved health care they're shoving down our throats. More expletives deleted for obvious reasons. Time for the real pitchforks and torches. We have absolutely no one in DC who has a tinker's dam of an idea how to run a country except into the ground! Start talking up "states rights." It's beginning to appear that's the only thing that may hold 'em off.

To all out there who are in the service of our country as military, or who have been in the service. We thank you and pray for your speedy, safe return to your loved ones and we who love you too as heroes, statesmen and women and those for whom it has been given by God, a feeling of responsibility to the country that gave us freedom under God. A heartfelt, "Thank you!"

Et tu Brute?

Ah yes, the "swine flu." probably the greatest diversionary tactic invented since pro football's use of the "flea-flicker." Kept the MSM and all of us all busy while the House of Reprobates snuck the "Hate Crimes Bill" through with nary a mention from anyone! Good going guys. You're selling America for a few old, stale pork rinds!!! A tip o the hat to Rahm Emanual on that one! It's in the Senate now and nary a mention anywhere. They're trying really hard to "soc et tuum." Hoping you'll pardon the old Latin pun.

Mrs. Fritz about 3 years ago

Mrs. Fritz had gotten a hernia at work lifting heavy boxes. She contacted her physician regarding getting the surgery. She came home from his office almost in tears. The doctor had checked her out for the surgery and had run an EKG. He said that it showed she had had a major heart attack sometime in the past. In the meantime she made an appointment with a well known heart surgeon here. He saw her and gave her a preliminary EKG and said the other doctor was correct, that she'd had a major heart attack and she wasn't going to be able to get the hernia repaired until the heart situation was seen to. He then scheduled her for a "stress" test at which time they run a complete check of the heart for damage, etc.We prayed together about the situation, pretty much putting it in God's hands. She had said she'd never felt anything like a heart attack, however the heart surgeon told her about what's called a "silent attack" which can do much damage.That night as she was sleeping, and I was not, (I'm the family worrier, with faith, but I worry) I rolled over to face her back and put my right hand on her right hip and my left hand on her shoulder. She was still sleeping. I prayed in all earnestness that God would heal her. As I was praying I felt as though an electrical current was moving between my hands. I was taken aback by this, but when finished with my prayer, I was finally able to get some sleep. That morning I told her what had happened when I prayed. She went on to the doctor's office for the stress test. The results were that there was no sign of any heart damage and the doctor said her heart tested like the heart of a woman half her age. She was overjoyed, as was I, and we of course thanked God for all His goodness, rejoicing greatly, of course.I know there are those who'd be skeptical of this whole occurence, but it did happen exactly as I described it. Even I was totally amazed. I've not the gift of healing, but God gave it to me for that particular event. BTW, Mrs. Fritz went on to have her hernia repaired and is quite well as we speak. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! He is faithful even when we are not!

Presidential Quote

Never forget the strength of freedom of the free world. We know how much we value our right to worship as we please, to speak as we please, to choose our own occupations, to try to give to our children the kind of training in beliefs and faith that we believe will make them happiest. We know the values we place on those things. — Dwight D. Eisenhower, Remarks at the Armed Forces Day Dinner, May 14, 1954

Sack Lunches

I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. I'm glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap, I thought. Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. "Where are you headed?" I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. "Petawawa. We'll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we're being deployed to Afghanistan." After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time. As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. "No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn't be worth five bucks. I'll wait till we get to base." His friend agreed...I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollarbill. "Take a lunch to all those soldiers." She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. "My son was a soldier in Iraq; it's almost like you are doing it for him." Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, "Which do you like best - beef or chicken?'' "Chicken," I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of the plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. "This is your thanks." After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. "I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this." He handed me twenty-five dollars. Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, and said, "I want to shake your hand." Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand. With a booming voice he said, "I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness Inever forgot." I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers. Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm. When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. "It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You." Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little...A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to " America for an amount of up to and including my life." That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. May God give you the strength and courage to pass this along to everyone on your email buddy list....I JUST DID

This came to me in an e-mail. I have no idea who wrote or relayed the story, but it's very heartwarming.

Barack Obama, the Quintessential Liberal Fascist by Kyle-Anne Shiver

"Letter of Amends from a Recovering Liberal in Berkeley"

Dear friends, family, loved ones, conservatives, Republicans, libertarians, my brother in law, Sam, and my cousin Joe: I am sorry and you were right.
These are not easy words for anyone to utter, much less a leftist from Berkeley, or a recovering leftist, that is. Even though I've been in recovery for 14 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days, leftists are always right in your face, in an I-hate-you-if-you-disagree sort of way. Hence, this letter of amends to all the people I've lectured, scolded, ranted and raved at, and otherwise annoyed during my 30 plus years of "progressive" politics.
My recovery program urges a fierce moral inventory, a cleansing of heart and mind (kind of like a "forgiveness tour" but without the scary dictators), so here goes:
To my brother in law, Sam, for blasting you in that Chinese restaurant for voting for Reagan, mea culpa.
To my cousin Joe for calling you a traitor when you became an MBA, started holding a real job (as opposed to most of us Berkeley types who are psychotherapists, massage therapists and aromatherapists), and became a conservative, my bad.
To my goddaughter whom I told when she was l0 years old that Republicans were bad, Democrats were good (yes I really did say this), and who got confused and tearful because she lives in a suburb where most people are Republicans, kid, what in the world was I thinking?
To my leftist friends, with whom I agreed that 9/ll was the US's fault, you and I were all such jerks.
To those potential friends whom I dumped when I found out you were conservative, your gain is my loss.
To all those columnists and editors whom I harangued with angry letters and e mails, sorry, sorry, sorry.
And finally to me, Robin, for installing you for the last 27 years in the far left cult of the People's Republic of Berkeley, where Patty Hearst was kidnapped by the SLA, where the Black Panthers had their violent beginnings and the heads of the Black Muslims are jailed for murder and rape, my apologies, girl.
I didn't know any better. I thought the whole world lived in areas where the streets are filthy, aggressive street behavior is allowed because the perps are victims of capitalism, and where you can easily get mugged walking down a street or eating in a restaurant at noon. (By the way, with the Left in charge, expect gangs, crime, indoctrination of 5 year olds and general anarchy to be coming soon to a neighborhood near you.)
Given that the media is pretty much censored (good luck finding a conservative book in your local "independent" book store or hearing a Republican speak anywhere), you didn't know that a party of grown ups even existed that didn't advocate screaming at others as the preferred mode of communication. So to my dear Robin, apologies for what I put you through, what I deprived you of, and my pledge to do better.
Cousin Joe, Sam, et al, you may be wondering how I did a l80 in 1 1/2 years. How did I go from a rabid, sanctimonious liberal whom you steadfastly avoided at family gatherings to a fan of Limbaugh, Hannity, and Savage? Recovery encourages us to share our story, so here's mine:
In February of 2008, I saw a new client, a bright and sensitive young woman who came in looking like she just escaped a war zone. In some ways she had; she had innocently shared with others at her job that she voted for Hillary rather than Obama. Immediately she was being targeted for abuse that put her in fear for not only her job, but her life.
We both suddenly became aware that something had grown really dark in the Democratic Party. I started hearing about many other incidents where loyal Democrats were being physically and emotionally threatened for supporting Hillary. A woman in Berkeley had her front window broken because it displayed a poster of Hillary. Randi Rhodes, an Air America talk show leftist, called Hillary a f______ witch. (Rhodes was recently promoted to a national talk radio show, illustrating another disturbing trend: the deafening silence about what Rush Limbaugh has dubbed the new "thug-ocracy.)
An acquaintance had her car broken into, and the only item stolen was a NoObama bumper sticker. A South Park episode featured an episode where a nuclear weapon was being aimed at Hillary's genitals. My local greeting card store sold very flattering cards about Obama, insulting ones about Hillary, and a Hillary "nutcracker." When I complained, the young male manager literally laughed in my face.
Things went from bad to worse when Sarah Palin entered the scene. When Geraldine Ferraro ran for Vice President, there was no debasement of her character, no sexual threats. But with Palin, a full scale "wilding" ensued that chillingly reminded me of the random sexual attacks on women by gangs of men in New York. She was called every vile name in the book by both male and female liberals.
Actress Sarah Bernhardt hoped a gang of black males would rape her. When Palin's church was torched with children inside, the press was missing in action (somehow I imagine the press would have been all over this if Obama's church were torched). Not only was the misogyny disgusting, but the classism was abhorrent. The Democrats, by ridiculing Palin's voice and her education, were acting like arrogant snobs. The party had changed, I had changed, and the differences looked irreconcilable.
The final straw for me was when a close friend flew into a rage at me when she learned I wasn't supporting Obama. The political became personal when she began impugning my character. Worse yet, she tried to intimidate me into changing my mind by threatening to dump me.
Suddenly a light went on. The peace and love and flower power of the old left was dead and gone (if it even existed to begin with except in my imagination). The Democrats had morphed into a power hungry Thought Police, and I was done with them. My new motto in life: don't PC on me.
So this is my letter of amends, and I hope that I can be forgiven by all whom I've offended. I knew not what the heck I was doing. But now the problem is: how in the world does one be a conservative these days? How to stay brave and committed when conservatives are being targeted, punished, and shunned on a daily basis? How to sleep at night knowing that the country I have finally come to love may be destroyed from within by a massive Big Brother government?
I guess I'll just have to do a step one, as we 12 stepper's call it, and turn it all over to my Higher Power.

h/t Robin,
Thanks to Susan

How's this for outright blasphemy?

From a piece called "Hal in a Handbasket" on

On Prayer

It is in an especial manner our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore Him to continue to confirm the blessings we experienced. Deeply penetrated with this sentiment, I, George Washington, President of the United States, do recommend to all religious societies and denominations, and to all persons whomsoever within the United States, to set apart and observe Thursday, the 19th day of February next, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, and on that day to meet together and render sincere and hearty thanks to the great Ruler of nations for the manifold and signal mercies which distinguish our lot as a nation… — George Washington, January 1, 1795

Socialism-Grading on a Curve

An economics professor at [State University] 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 ok, 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.To their great surprise, all failed. The professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder it is to succeed the greater the reward, but when a government takes all the reward away, no one will try and no one will succeed…HT: Orrin Woodward

Danny Gans-Christian, family man, performer-RIP, May 1, 2009-at home-Henderson, NV

Danny's childhood dream was to play third base for the Los Angeles Dodgers. After high school he was drafted by the Kansas City Royals. The Chicago White Sox drafted Danny after college, where he was an All American at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He was a professional baseball player until an injury ended his career. Many years later he played as a third baseman in the film Bull Durham. Danny was blessed with a great singing voice and the ability to make people laugh and a rare presence that would manifest itself in his new career. He spent 15 years traveling throughout the United States, working in the industry and perfected his repertoire of impressions. At the same time he became one of the most sought-after performers in the corporate world, often playing to stadium-sized crowds for major international companies like IBM and McDonald's. Danny was the favorite of the Fortune 500 list. In 1995, he moved to Broadway to perform a well-received one-man show, but later decided to move to Las Vegas to reduce time away from his family, who lived in Los Angeles. He started performing at the Las Vegas Stratosphere Hotel in 1996. Then the Rio Hotel and eventually The Mirage in 2000 where he became a permanent performer at The Mirage, where the Danny Gans Theatre was built for him. In early 2009, Danny changed venues again, and performed at Encore, which is the sister property to Wynn Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Strip marquee now bearing Danny Gans' image is the largest freestanding marquee in the world. His inaugural album, produced by contemporary Christian music legend Michael Omartian, was cross-marketed in both the pop and Christian music genres, and sold in both mainstream and Christian music outlets, in much the same manner as Amy Grant. Danny's love of entertaining was only surpassed by the love of his family. Danny died in his sleep in the morning hours of May 1st, 2009. He is survived by his wife, Julie, and three children, Amy, Andrew and Emily.

Just for fun-Three Stooges Pull a Tooth

My answer to a communism-lover

If communism/socialism is so great why did the Soviet Union fold under the weight of all the bureaucracy, food shortages, transportation problems, civil unrest, ad infinitum? Why are the people of North Korea starving? Why are the people of Cuba starving? Why were all the people of Albania starving before it also folded? Why was there civil unrest in Poland, Checkoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, East Germany, etc., etc.? Why will Americans starve and be party to civil unrest? Why will America collapse under the weight of bureaucracy, food shortages,transportation problems, etc., etc.? I'll tell you why. It's because we've got a president who is a Marxist, socialist who has a Chief of Staff who thinks that crises are good opportunity to ram through programs un-noticed because of the diversion of the issue at the forefront (read this as "Swine Flu" pandemic). It's because he has an evil "puppetmaster" in one George Soros, whose massive wealth has bought and sold Barrack Obama. It's because his politics are those of Ayers and Dorn and the Chicago political machine. I'm Through. May God have mercy on your everlasting soul!
This was my reply to a leftist who'd posted on the Obama Poll discussion.

My answer to a leftist rant

And so, you didn't vote for Obama because he believes like you do? As for the separation of church and state issue, you'd better at least give us the pleasure of reading the Constitution before you start to spout that old ACLU perversion. That term is mentioned in only one constitution anywhere in the world and that, my friend is the constitution of the now defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. I voted for G. W. Bush not because I agreed with everything he said. I voted for him, because he was most definitely a better choice than Al Gore. Abortion is not a right. You will find no reference to it in the U.S. Constitution, either. The Declaration of Independence, however, does talk about "the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Murdering babies is not a right or a choice. Why do you think conservatives call their anti-abortion stance the "right to life issue?" The right to choose begins and ends when the parties involved decide to make a baby. May God have mercy on your everlasting soul!
This guy was all accusatory about those who vote for those they think like. He was in favor of separation of church and state, abortion, etc. the above was my reply.

Hate Crimes II

Is it a hate crime for a person to love the sinner, but not the sin? Of course it's not. That is no less than what our Lord requires of us.

For the gov't. to label a Christian preaching on the sins and perversions listed in the Bible as a hater, when the person is fulfilling the commission given to us by our Lord, to "go and tell", is totally wrong.

When are those in the gov't. going to wake up and realize the truth? They want no accountability so they can do whatever feels good to them. There is no victimless sin or crime! No matter how many times they say there is no sin in certain doings, they are dead wrong. "They are seared in their conscience, and reprobate of mind."

Hate Crimes

Are not all violent crimes hate crimes? According to statistics the average number of hate crimes(as per the definitions in the House Hate Crimes Bill) only account for less than one tenth of one percent, or less, of the violent crimes commited in the U.S. annually. So why does the left want so badly to ram through the Hate Crimes Bill? The answer is simple. It's to make legitimate any and all perversions that fly in the face of God's laws. It is also their desire to silence the Christian majority in our land. Is not the murder of an 85 year old grandmother as much a crime of hate as the murder of a 25 year old homosexual? Of course it is.

If hate Crimes Laws become the law of the land, pastors and teachers will not be able to preach out of Romans Chp.1. A time may also come when Bible publishers will be required to remove "hate speech" from their printings of the Bible. According to the House version of the Bill, which already passed under the radar, with nary a mention on any MSM (even FOX was silent), child molesters will be protected. This is an abomination! The swine flu diversion was at the forefront. remember Rahm Emanuel said that a good crisis makes for good opportunity.

This whole thing will turn around and Christians will become the victims of Hate Crimes, and will not be protected under the very law they fought to defeat. God, of course is our ultimate "Protector." This once Godly nation of ours is slipping through our fingers, and yet everyone is so embroiled in their own life struggles that they haven't the nerve or time to do the right thing. Call your reps. and give them the words of truth. America is still a nation founded on God's truths and we as citizens demand to be heard. The days of senators and representatives going to D.C. and doing what they want instead of what their constituency wants are over. Vote as the majority wants or we'll elect some one who will!

The Constitution of the United States of America demands that this evil bill not be allowed to pass. The problem is, our current adminsitration thinks it's OK to walk all over it(the Constitution). Christ, in the Bible says, " Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and render unto God what is God's." As citizens with a Constitituion such as ours, we are, I believe, required to point out the error of the ways of the government. To not do so, I believe, is flying in the face of God's demands upon us as also being citizens of His Kingdom.

A Sleeping Giant?

To me France has always been a glaring example of how not to run a government, or society in general. I lived in Germany for three years near the French border. It does not seem to be just strictly a French idea that Americans are rubes, as you put it. Germans are just about as bad in their feelings toward America. I’m German (blood only), born in the USA, and found that while in Germany, in their eyes I was just like all the rest of the “ugly” Americans. Europeans, at best, are a hard-headed bunch that think they can do no wrong, while at the same time exercising their “liberalness” to such a high degree that their countries are slowly falling to the typical “let everyone do as they feel” lifestyle because, as we all know, if it feels good, then it must be right (Meant to be a snotty remark). The liberal ideals of “diversity” are killing society worldwide. Now they are having Muslim problems,and many are becoming afraid of what’s coming upon them with no way to rectify the situation. Much in the same way we are with the illegal alien, gay marriage, Nambla, etc. situations here. Laws being changed to protect the guilty rather than the innocent, all the way down to kidnappings, beheadings, etc. Also a government that believes the Constitution was written by a bunch of dead guys who had no idea about modern American life, and really believe with their whole beings that the document is a piece of paper that could not possibly have any relevance in today’s world. The Founders knew better of course. It’s like saying the same thing about the Bible. No way it’s relevant anymore? Hogwash! It’s more relevant today than ever. Americans have felt for decades that it can’t happen here. But it is. Mexico, as a culture does not normally go around beheading their enemies, perceived or real. On the other hand the Mexican drug cartels do. They also kidnap and murder. This is going on even as we speak along certain areas of the southwest border. Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of America as a direct result of the cartels. And yet Janet and the “boys from Brazil” do nothing to stop it. We needed a “swine flu” pandemic to take our minds off the real things that are going on in DC and the rest of the country. The left is not nibbling away at American freedom, it’s running at it headlong and stealing it from in front of our very eyes. And yet good people everywhere sit idly by wringing their hands and saying, “What can we do. What can we do?” America needs Godly, good strong conservative people to stand up and say, “Thus far have you gone; no further shall you go!” Lines in the sand are a necessary thing. America needs to awaken, as the Japanese Admiral said after Pearl Harbor, “We have awakened a sleeping giant!” America is hated by the Europeans because they perceive we are conservative and they are liberal. We bailed their asses out during two world wars, but they hate us for it, because we’re not in “their mold” of liberalness. This is the same reason BHO goes around the world badmouthing his own country ( who’s talking about Kenya?—lol). He is actually ashamed of America, even though he is the first black president, because he’s ragingly liberal, and is ashamed of the American conservatism, as weak as it may now be. Michelle is only proud of America now because her husband was elected. She’d still be ashamed of it if he’d been defeated. I feel as though, if American conservatives continue to wake up, and campaign and vote this battle can still be won.

Dr. Kent Hovind on Hitler

Dr. Hovind on depopulation-Watch it and weep

Sunday sermonette

The Bible says in Romans 13:1, “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” NASB.After reading this this morning I’ve come to the conclusion that as a once Godly nation, America has gotten what it deserves for an administration. For way too long our country has been torn between the lesser of two evils. The Dems on the left with their, “If it feels good, do it.” attitude about everything from abortion to welfare, education, ad infinitum. On the other hand we’ve also been beset or, more precisely, set upon by the Reps. who claim to be conservative, yet have no clear cut definition of what conservative really means.Where are those who step forward and say, “Thus far have you gone, no further shall you go!?” Few in leadership roles in our country have the true “stones” to make a viable stand for the truth. The entire populous has gotten lackadaisical about everything in America. You can see it in TV, news, even Churches. Our society has gotten very selfish. Everyman for himself. “If you don’t like it you can go to hell.” This is the prevailing thought process of most people. The only answer of course would be a massive return to God by the masses. Sadly, most in America don’t even care, as long as they’re left alone to pursue their survival. It’s becoming sadly that. No one’s even concerned about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” It’s just leave me alone so I can survive.The Bible also says,(paraphrased), “In the last days there will be false messiahs, and many antiChrists (many who are against Christ) as opposed to “the” antiChrist who ushers in those last days.” In my mind, those last days are rushing at us at an awesome pace.

Pathological narcissism

A little long but VERY enlightening!!Samuel Vaknin, Ph.D. Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism. Dr. Vaknin states "I must confess I was impressed by Sen.Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident - a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words.Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such quasi "religious" impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming.Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects. Barack Obama is a narcissist. Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist." Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens.Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People's Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist. David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao,Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers. They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom.When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don't know it until it is too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse. "Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations," says Vaknin. "Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia , a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white)grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995".One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality. His admirers become his co-dependents.Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and do not deserve their attention.If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The "present" vote is a safe vote. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what His own autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He entitled the book Dreams from My Father. Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself?Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.??A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who has raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself. This election is like no other in the history of America . The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake.What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed.Many politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others...They are simply self serving and selfish. Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw.Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous.Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party. The great majority of blacks have also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven. This is racism, pure and simple. The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heels deeper in the sand and blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites.The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960's. Obama will set the clock back decades... America is the bastion of freedom.The peace of the world depends on the strength of America , and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the White House.America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president."
