Trump visits the Pope

Hey,  has anyone been  keeping up with President  Trump’s travels lately?  He went to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and then to Vatican City to see the Pope.  While at Vatican City, the Pope presented Trump with his book on his views how to combat human-driven climate change.

Now, the news has reported this as perfectly normal.  As a matter of fact, it was mentioned in the initial story and was dropped.  I don’t know about all of you, but am I the only one that this bothers.  It disturbs me and, after a few days of stewing, I had to write something.

If I were the leader of the largest Christian group on the planet and I was meeting personally with the President of the United States… what would I talk about?

First, I will start by saying that I am not the Pope.  But if I were actually meeting the President,  I would talk about something different.  I don’t know for certain, but I’m pretty sure that  President  Trump is not a believing Christian.  I  think  I would probably broach  this topic.  I feel that if I could get President Trump to accept Jesus as his savior, and to actually follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in his actions while as President, the policies and direction of the United States would change radically for the better.  I think that the whole world would be a better place.  I also think that the Pope missed a golden opportunity.

I realize that the Pope is not just any old preacher.  But I’m certain that any Sunday morning preacher would, at the first chance,  jump at the opportunity to inject their faith view, as well as, the Holy Scripture into their conversation in an effort to convert the President.

So what does the  Pope talk about… “global warming?”   I will say that I’m very disappointed.  Up until this meeting, I was actually supportive of the Pope.   No offense to any of  my Catholic  friends out there, but the  Pope is way off target.  This is clearly the  work  of Satan.  For  example, whenever an atheist argues against religion, he always brings up  “The  Inquisition period” of the  Catholic  church.  I say,  yes, the  Inquisition was horrible.  But you  don’t condemn all the peaceful Muslims for a few terrorists.  So why condemn  all the loving Christians  for  a few horrible individuals?  How could Christians torture and kill innocent people.  I  agree that this was evil and they were after the wealth.   Just like back then, there are still good Christian people out there within the Catholic Church, and the Pope is still doing evil things and  he is still chasing after the wealth that is within the global warming movement.

I read the Bible and I assume that the Pope does the same.  I can’t find a single reference to “global warming” anywhere in the Bible.  The Pope’s job is the spiritual leader of the largest Christian group on the planet.  His one job is to see to the overall spiritual health of the people.  He helps everyone find salvation through Jesus Christ.  He may also help people to understand  the teachings of Jesus, such as peace and love, which may go a long way in decreasing war, death and destruction.

Happy Easter

 

What did you do today? Did you go to church?   Did you even think about the sacrifice and the deeds, as well as the miracles done by our savior, Jesus?

In America we’re so blasé about religion. We’re so set in our ways about secular thought that we frequently miss the power of the Gospel. The teachings, morals, lessons, parables, and laws of the Judeo-Christian Bible (Old and New Testaments) hinge on one fact that prove their exclusive claim to truth. If Jesus did not die and rise from the grave, then nothing we preach is more than someone’s personal opinion.

Nonbelievers offer the same argument the Apostle Paul addressed in 1 Corinthians: “we do not believe in the resurrection of the dead.” From a purely naturalist viewpoint, it’s impossible. Paul wrote to a group of Christians who expressed faith in Christ but not in a resurrection of the dead.

Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

1 Corinthians 15:12-19

If this event did not occur, there’s little difference in Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and countless other religions from Christianity. The power of Zeus and Apollo to save would be no better than Jesus Christ were it not for the resurrection. The Bible would be nothing more than myth, which is exactly what many humanist/secular/atheist nonbelievers believe it to be.

But Paul also gave an answer to them (before he addressed resurrection in general).

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

1 Corinthians 15:3-8

Christ has also appeared in dreams to thousands of people, most of whom are forever changed by the encounter. Large numbers of Jews and Muslims have become (and continue to this day) believers in Christ following these dreams, some after reading the New Testament confirming their own witness. Some never read the Bible before this, because the book is banned in many countries.

If the Bible is a myth, why is it considered so dangerous in so many places that it’s banned? Why is proselytizing banned in most Muslim-dominated countries, and in Israel? Why, despite the bans, are thousands of Jews, Muslims, and those living in officially atheist countries such as China coming to Christ?

The Bible is banned in more countries than any other single book–even Mein Kampf. In contrast, the Koran is only banned (uncensored) in Russia. That was in 2014…since then Vladimir Putin has cracked down on Christians harder than practically any other religious group.

Why does this happen? If the Bible is so easily disproved and cast aside as myth, why is reading that particular book considered to be so dangerous?

It is dangerous because they know in their heart that it is, in fact, true. God is real. Jesus did rise from the dead, and we, as members of the Christian faith, are the only people on earth who have real hope and an unobstructed clear path to the promised land.

Why Survive?

I am a prepper. I have been into the survival thing for many years. I collect ammo, supplies, emergency equipment and all sorts of survival stuff. I read, practice and train for the event of a zombie apocalypse or whatever you would call an apocyplical event. I read an article this morning that got me thinking about why I prepare. Let’s face it, we all have our idea of what we want our lives to be. We want to survive to support our children, prosper, and be ahead of the poor schmuck who didn’t take the time or effort to prepare. Then out of the blue, I really started thinking about what I really want as the final result of my worldly existence. What reasons do I personally feel make life worth living? My fondest memories of growing up don’t revolve around gifts or things I received as a child. I no longer remember, with some very few exceptions, what I unwrapped on most Christmas mornings of my youth. I do however still remember the anticipation as I waited for the big day to arrive, waking early, and knowing I couldn’t wait to open my gifts. But one particular Christmas morning stands out in my memory. As one by one my family awoke, we gathered around the tree, and just sat quietly. Then mom said how much she loved us all. Her smile beamed. I gave her a hug and we had some coffee and savored the moment. For a short time we were just glad to all be together, all healthy, and life was quiet and serene. There are very few days during my school years that stand out in my memory. But I can still picture in my youth every day my dad would take the time to give me undivided attention teaching me how to do man stuff, using hand tools to create something really cool from a pile of leftover scrap lumber. Things like teaching me to use a gun, set up a fishing line, to throw a cast net, and enjoy nature while tromping through the swamp is what I really remember. It wasn’t any special or even expensive. It was the little things, the every day things that my family did to show their love.

Now I’m not reminiscing on my childhood to put you to sleep. I simply wish to set the stage as I leisurely get to the point of this post. I love life to the fullest. I mean, I don’t really want to die. I quite frankly have no intention of doing so anytime soon. I’ve always been contrary, and with everyone trying to tell me that I ‘have’ to die sometime, it makes me more ornery and determined to prove them wrong. But why? What do I want to live for? America and the quality of all our lives has been constantly degraded by more and more regulation and violations of our rights. Liberal and socialist constructs continuously intrude into our private lives. So what is it that keeps me getting up every morning to face yet another day? I’ve given this a great deal of thought.

My oldest son brought his daughter (our granddaughter) over to babysit the other day while they went to a movie. When I look at her I wonder, as she gets older, how to keep her “entertained” when she’s here. I have only the basic of TV, only the most basic of internet.  In competing with modern day electronics, and what they teach in school now a-days, I worry how am I going to keep her enthused about spending time with this broken down old man. And I realized the answer lies in the things that gives my life meaning. All of my fondest memories from half a century revolve around creation. Taking scraps that would otherwise go to waste, and using skills my dad patiently taught me, making a house for a family of birds to nest in. Understanding the ring of life. Both in the birth of plants from the soil and animals from the womb. And so many small things. Painting a picnic table with my dad. Making home-made charcoal. Playing a game of baseball with the neighbor kids at the little community schoolhouse. Sitting in the woods, waiting for the squirrels to get used to my presence in their domain, and then NOT shooting one because they all seemed to be having so much fun. Then picking blackberries for my mom to make a cobbler for dinner.

I realized this morning I’m not prepping to survive, I work to live. If I can instill even a tenth of my reverence for the quiet life I prefer in my granddaughter, my life will not have been wasted. As a career nurse, I try to help people and do what I can to make life better. Life is not about getting more toys, more material goods or stuff to have. It’s about what you do, that counts. It’s also about who you spend your time with that counts. It’s about your family and your loved ones. And most of all, it’s about a healthy relationship with your maker.

So for my new 2017 new year’s resolution, I’m going to focus on my family. I’m going to call mom more. Go see my sister and my dad more. I’m going to spend more time with my three sons and my new granddaughter. And most of all, I’m going to pray more. I’m going to give up on the prepper thing. I’m going to put my trust in God and see what happens.

So basically, with the babysitting issue, I’m not going to entertain my granddaughter. I’m going to let her entertain me as I try to instill in her that it’s not he who dies with the most toys who wins. It’s he who has a great relationship with God, and who has worked to obtain an enriched life while working to the enrichment of others that wins.

When the World is on Fire, Be thankful.

For years, I’ve watched the news and kept up to date with the local and national political scene.  If you review this very blog, you can see how I’ve felt.  In this last year, I’ve made a commitment to work on only those things that I am able to make a constructive change.

Today I made the mistake of turning on the news. I found my senses instantly assaulted with stories of fighting politicians, corrupt corporations, and countless crimes. It seemed like the only news worth showing was mankind at its very worst. It seemed like the only thing they wanted to talk about was what went wrong today.

After a few minutes I turned the television back off. I poured myself a glass of wine, sat down at my kitchen table, and instead thought about what went right today. Today the sun came over the horizon and bathed the world in its golden, life-giving light. Today my little house once again kept me warm, safe, and dry. Today I had 3 meals of wonderful food that kept me healthy, alive, and energized for the work of the day. I went to my job and was able to relieve several people of their potentially devastating cancer.  Today, whenever I reached my hand down I had a furry head to pet as my cat shared his unconditional love with me. Today I got to hug and encourage my sons and see the joy that they share with the world.

Today I played with my grandbaby and was once again amazed at how beautiful she is. Today I got a call from family back in Alabama and they shared their lives and their love with me. Today I shared a few messages of love and joy myself.

Today I felt God’s warm love for me flowing through all of His creation and encouraging me to once again spread His love, tell His truth, and shine His light. When you are at the end of your days in this world,  are you going to dwell on what went wrong or rejoice in what went right? God showers this world in goodness all the time, and we need only to open our hearts to see it. Rejoice in everything that goes right in your life. Give thanks for it. And do your best to add your own goodness, kindness, and love to it as well. By doing this you will be helping God to make this Earth a lot more like Heaven.

Matt 21:12

I had a funny exchange with my morning Bible study today.  I asked a gentleman about the prospects for the search of our new pastor.  He responded with anger saying, “you can’t rush this.  It’s a sensitive process.”  I didn’t expect this response, and because he was clearly angered saying, essentially, “hey new guy, this is none of your business”,  I continued to press, “but couldn’t we get a temp?  I mean, if he doesn’t work out, we can simply say, it’s not working out, and peruse to the next guy on the list.”  He got even more angry at my persistence saying, “when I was a minister, I once took a vacation and had a temp for the two weeks.  When I returned, it took me years to un-do the damage he had done.  He had actually talked badly about the public school teachers and the union…”

At this point, I gave up.  I decided that this gentleman was indeed working up an impossible task.  You can’t find a person to lead the church that will please everyone.  Even Jesus was controversial in his day.

Jesus didn’t walk into the temple and say, “hey guys, this is not nice doing that here. Probably not a good idea…”

It’s not all about pacifism and letting the liberals have their way. Sometimes you just have to take a stand.

What do you think would happen if Jesus were to appear in your church next Sunday and say to people what he says in the Bible?

“Hypocrites!”

“Fools”

“A brood of vipers fit for hell”

Given how most churches expect you  to be “nice” I think there would be a rush to the pulpit to wrestle the microphone  from his hand.

“Tsk, tsk, tsk” we’d mutter scornfully.  We’d wag our fingers, reminding him of the supreme importance place on manners and appearances in this holy place.

Mothers would reach for that bar of soap to wash out his mouth, while reciting the unofficial church motto: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.”

“He really should be ashamed of himself.”

Shame is a big thing in the church.  It helps keep the newer guys in line. Keeps their heads down, Keeps them humble… supposedly.

Many believe in a soft, supple, always forgiving savior that is always passive and nice.  Sermons preached in the many churches today are designed to make Jesus appear always approachable, always calm, and endlessly patient.  That’s fiction right up there with The Da Vinci Code.  The mild Jesus has more to do with Eastern mysticism than with the Gospel record.  He did not remain above it all. He  brought  both conflict and division needed to shake  things up for our own good.

I’m not sure what to do.  Leave for a different church altogether,  or stick  it out and try to facilitate change.  I need a true “Bible church” that teaches the actual scripture and doesn’t deviate.  But to try to please everyone and be true to the scripture is impossible.

Format change

Blog restart 2.0

My blog has been shut down for quite some time now.  I have received many emails from concerned people asking if I was dead, in prison, sick, a host of crazy ideas.  Most of my followers have left.  I was attacked by,  well, I don’t know for sure. I got harassing letters, and I was tormented by the IRS, the ATF, and was put on the “always do the special treatment list” by the TSA.  It has been a calendar year and I’ve gotten a “non-audited” tax return. I have since traveled to Alabama by air and was treated just like any other “normal” passenger traveling by air.  It has been over a year since I’ve had to talk with anyone from the BATFE.  And now that Trump is in, Obama is out.  The crazy liberal bureaucrats in the government who have condoned conservative harassment in the first place are on their way out too.  With all of this to consider, I think it just might be safe for me to start my blog back up again.

I plan to attempt a slightly different format this time.  Previously, I have discussed politics pretty frequently.  For  this, I have made my apologies.  It seems that sometimes, things just happen in our American  government that makes my  head want to explode… and I feel compelled to talk about it.  Now I am going to attempt to talk  a little less about politics.  I know what you are thinking… “you’ve said this before.”   But now, it’s a little different.  I  have become more involved in my  church and I  want to really focus on my walk with Jesus.  And to start things off…

2 Timothy 2:4, You need not concern yourself with worldly matters but on the spiritual.  or Colossians 3:2,  Set your affection on things above, not on the affairs here on earth.  So, I think I have devoting way too much time to the politics and petty squabbles in our government.  I may still slip up and post something, especially if it’s one of those things that is so outlandish that it nearly makes my head explode.

Instead, as a slight change, I will try to post stuff on my religious discoveries as I study the Bible and grow in my faith.  I will also continue to post fun stuff and jokes, nursing stories and things about my work as a nurse.  I will also try to post helpful stuff about healthcare and how you can stay healthy.  As a bonus, and because I still love to reload ammo, go to the range, and compete in shooting events, I will post stuff relating to sports, hunting, fishing, and shooting.  Maybe I’ll post a few pics of cool stuff that I build in my workshop on occasion.

So, if you were one of the millions of followers that I once had in the past, I apologize for the change.  If you are new to visit, then welcome.

On This Day

Today is the anniversary of the Waco tragedy. The Waco siege was an attack on a compound belonging to the group Branch Davidians by federal law enforcement and US military, between February 28 and April 19, 1993. The Branch Davidians, a sect that separated in 1955 from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, was led by David Koresh and lived at Mount Carmel Center ranch in the community of Elk, Texas. It was nine miles east-northeast of Waco., The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) said that they had broken the law causing a search and arrest warrant to be obtained and served. The action quickly escalated and resulted in a violent shootout. This action taken by Janet Reno and supported by President Bill Clinton. This group was suspected of weapons violations. But in reality, we will never know, as they were never allowed to go to trial. David Koresh along with his followers (76 adults and 26 children) were burned to death, on this day by the American federal government.

Lying Spirits

62644822

I have long been intrigued, by the push from the left to insist that every single jot & tittle of their belief structure, not only be accepted, but embraced and outwardly celebrated. It’s as if nothing exists to place limits on their grasp. No matter the failure or pushback, they just keep pushing harder to get normal people to swallow their lies.

I have struggled to reconcile this situation in my own mind and I think I may have found a corollary. I’m not a scholar and I’m far from being a preacher, so read this with whatever skepticism you need, but when I look to the story of Ahab & Jezebel, I can see parallels…

Let’s go to 2 Chronicles 18:

18 Now Jehoshaphat had great wealth and honor, and he allied himself with Ahab by marriage. Some years later he went down to see Ahab in Samaria. Ahab slaughtered many sheep and cattle for him and the people with him and urged him to attack Ramoth Gilead.Ahab king of Israel asked Jehoshaphat king of Judah, “Will you go with me against Ramoth Gilead?”

Jehoshaphat replied, “I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will join you in the war.” But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the Lord.”

So the king of Israel brought together the prophets—four hundred men—and asked them, “Shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?”

“Go,” they answered, “for God will give it into the king’s hand.”

But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no longer a prophet of the Lord here whom we can inquire of?”

The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat, “There is still one prophet through whom we can inquire of the Lord, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.”

“The king should not say such a thing,” Jehoshaphat replied.

So the king of Israel called one of his officials and said, “Bring Micaiah son of Imlah at once.”

Dressed in their royal robes, the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting on their thrones at the threshing floor by the entrance of the gate of Samaria, with all the prophets prophesying before them. 10 Now Zedekiah son of Kenaanah had made iron horns, and he declared, “This is what the Lord says: ‘With these you will gore the Arameans until they are destroyed.’”

11 All the other prophets were prophesying the same thing. “Attack Ramoth Gilead and be victorious,” they said, “for the Lord will give it into the king’s hand.”

12 The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.”

13 But Micaiah said, “As surely as the Lord lives, I can tell him only what my God says.”

14 When he arrived, the king asked him, “Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?”

“Attack and be victorious,” he answered, “for they will be given into your hand.”

15 The king said to him, “How many times must I make you swear to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of the Lord?”

16 Then Micaiah answered, “I saw all Israel scattered on the hills like sheep without a shepherd, and the Lord said, ‘These people have no master. Let each one go home in peace.’”

17 The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Didn’t I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?”

18 Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing on his right and on his left. 19 And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab king of Israel into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’

“One suggested this, and another that. 20 Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’

“‘By what means?’ the Lord asked.

21 ‘I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said.

“‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the Lord. ‘Go and do it.’

22 “So now the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.”

23 Then Zedekiah son of Kenaanah went up and slapped Micaiah in the face. “Which way did the spirit from[a] the Lord go when he went from me to speak to you?” he asked.

24 Micaiah replied, “You will find out on the day you go to hide in an inner room.”

25 The king of Israel then ordered, “Take Micaiah and send him back to Amon the ruler of the city and to Joash the king’s son, 26 and say, ‘This is what the king says: Put this fellow in prison and give him nothing but bread and water until I return safely.’”

27 Micaiah declared, “If you ever return safely, the Lord has not spoken through me.” Then he added, “Mark my words, all you people!”

I am loath to speak for the almighty, so I won’t starting that now, but I can see a parallel between the chain of deceit and lies which God allowed. God even had his angel place untruth in the mouths of the king’s servants, ultimately (by God’s hand) causing the king to fall.

Think about this, in order to defeat Ahab, God caused a lying spirit to come from the mouths of every trusted person in this fickle king’s administration. Everyone in the movement God was defeating, was convinced that they would win and no amount of reasoning was going to change their view. When Micaiah spoke the truth, he was slapped, humiliated, and thrown in jail.

Ah, but he was right. The Almighty had placed a lying spirit upon those in charge, giving them irrational confidence of invincibility…and they fell.

Ahab* had his own ideas of winning battles, to which God set a lying spirit against him to establish those lies as the cause of his downfall. Providence in action.

As Paul says in 2 Thes 2, Paul tells us:

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Again, I am not speaking for the Almighty, but I can see a parallel between the deceiving spirit and the strong delusion and draw a modern corollary from the inability of those who believe the absolute falsehoods of the left and their failure to recognize that nasty blindspot they have.

Most conservatives have to believe that late term abortion, Sharia law, same sex marriage, support for the destruction of Israel, (just to name a few), and most of the core tenets of liberalism, is very wrong. So is it wrong for me to take pleasure in the rapid destruction of wickedness? It is not God’s will that any should perish, but that all should come to salvation through Christ, but even God hates evil and what we fight, today in America, is 100% pure, unadulterated, unmitigated evil who choose emotion over reason, feelings over truth.

I am happy to see the tares destroying the wickedness they’ve sown for their self and by their self, at what seems – to me – to be God’s hand.

Thank you, Obama…

This is from an Older Lady who Loves Obama. After listening, I have to agree.  I too am proud of Obama’s legacy and what he has done.   And after listening, I have to agree,  I too love Obama.  This is a little different way to look at the current events with what is happening within our country.  This one little 82-year-old lady expained just how she feels about our 44th president and how Obama became to be so great.   She proclaimed, “he is rebuilding the American dream, and I thank God for all the good work that he has done.”

Here’s the list of accomplishments…

1. Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through the heart of Hillary’s presidential aspirations – something no Republican was ever able to do.

2. Obama killed off the Kennedy Dynasty – no more Kennedys strolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.

3. Obama is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!  Before Obama Dennis Moore had never lost a race. Byron Dorgan had never lost a race. Harry Reid is on his way out.  These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed. Just think, in December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In two election cycles, they had picked up 14 Senate seats and 52 House seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party. However, in just one term, Obama put a stop to all of this and gave the House and the Senate  back to the Republicans.

4. Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend, and run up debt.  Liberals can’t bring themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over and control the economy. Liberals think they know what is best for everyone else. Liberals are not happy until they are running your life in every aspect.

5. Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In one term, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America.

6. Obama, with his “amazing leadership, ” has sparked the greatest period of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have rallied and have provided a huge “stimulus” to the sporting goods industry while other American companies have failed, faded, or moved off-shore.

7. In all honesty, 4 years ago I was more afraid than I have been in my life. Not afraid of the economy, but afraid of the direction our country was going. I thought, Americans have forgotten what this country is all about. My neighbors and friends, even strangers, have proved to me that my lack of confidence in the greatness and wisdom of the American people has been flat wrong.

8. When the American people wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them! Barack Obama has served to wake up the American citizens once again. I want to say: “Thank you, Barack Obama” After all, this is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!

9.He has saved Carter’s legacy and made Jimmy Carter happy, since Jimmy is no longer the worst president we’ve ever had. Credit goes to where credit is due. Obama has totally erased that black mark on the good state of Georgia. I feel better for the people of Georgia and for Jimmy Carter.

THANK YOU OBAMA

Stupid Is As Stupid Does…

Donald Trump is now our new President.  The swearing ceremony went off without a hitch.  Now the real festivities begin (by the liberal idiots)

The I find it both ironic and hilarious that the nut jobs here in Portland “go to the streets” and protest. They riot, destroy and create havoc in the downtown area. Just by coincidence, the people who work and live in the downtown metro area are 100% deep blue Democrats and certainly Hillary supporters. They are causing damage and extreme expense to the very people that were financial supporters of Hillary and Obama. If they really wanted to “take it to the streets” in order to “get back at Trump” and his supporters, they should get a bus and head to Idaho, Montana, Oklahoma, or any other Red (Trump) state. Destroying your own bed that you have to sleep in, just because you’re a childish turd, is stupid… but who am I to complain
