I don't want anyone else telling me what to believe. I don't want anyone lying to me. In order for me to believe what I do, I find I'm responsible for educating myself about the facts. One person says one thing, and someone else says something else. I find that I notice patterns. I find that I have an instinct when I am listening to a liar. I notice when someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes.

I noticed, for instance, way back in the early 60's that 50% of the professors were very idealistic and very socialistic, and if you didn't believe as they did, then you were wrong. I didn't finish some courses because of that bias. I couldn't agree with their belief system and they couldn't agree with mine. I found little reason to believe anything else they were teaching. Many were teaching things contrary to what I'd been taught by my parents & grandparents about the history of the US, and what I'd learned early in my educational experience. I found this disturbing but decided "it wouldn't matter" so long as I knew what was true.

Then when my son was in high school he would come home and tell me what they were teaching him in high school. This was some 20 years after I'd been in high school. One of the most shocking things he told me was they'd taught him Angela Davis was a heroine. I hit the ceiling! Angela Davis was a criminal! From that moment on I began teaching him to question the things he was being taught in high school. I tried to teach him to do outside study and find out for himself, and I began doing the same. Explore all of the information available and then come to your own informed decision about the rightness of things. Never believe a thing to be true just because someone in authority said it was true.

To understand my position, I think I need to inform you that at one time I voted as a Democrat. I was an idealist. I thought, "wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all live together in peace and understanding" "wouldn't it be great if we could join a commune and live together, all working together for one goal" And then two things happened. I joined a food co-operative, and I got married (for the second time). I observed two things: In the food co-op everyone was supposed to be equal and do their job for the good of the whole. Early on, I observed this was the same pattern being attempted in the Soviet Union and it wasn't working there either. Unless someone holds a gun to your head, you aren't going to do a job if you don't want to do it. When one observes that everyone isn't holding up their end of the bargain incentive goes away. I was on the Board of Directors and I demanded the place be run like a business or it would fade away into nothing. That was back nearly 35 years ago. Since that time the Co-op has been run like a business. People get paid for their jobs and they do them. The Co-op now has owners who have invested their cash into the company. I still don't know the value of that. I put a great deal of effort into it in the beginning. Others put in more effort. In the end, only those who put cash into it are becoming the owners. That's business for you. But the business survived and its nearly 35 years old!

The second thing was marriage. If both parties don't have the same goals, or even if they do, its impossible for one person to control the thoughts and the opinions of the other. We can suppress that person by controlling their emotions and their physicalness, but can we really suppress their thoughts? No. It's impossible. We can never suppress their individual freedom to think and believe the way they want to believe.

I don't want to be responsible for the way you think, nor do I want to be responsible for the things you believe. At the same time, I don't want you to be duped by the lies being told by others. I very much want you to think about the things others are telling you. Make certain you are being told the truth. Make certain you know what you really want.

Do you really want a government that decides the kind of lightbulbs you buy? Do you really want a government that tells you what food you should eat? Do you really want a government that decides every aspect of your life for you? Or do you want to be free to make your own mistakes and live your life freely without having to stop to think about what you say or what you do?

We have already been duped into becoming socialistic. "Social Security" I hate that I am dependent upon the social security check. I am doing everything I can to free myself from the necessity of it. I hate that I am making a living applying for Medicaid for those people who haven't got enough money to take care of themselves in their old age. I am doing my best to make certain I don't have to do that, by making myself healthy and whole and independent.

Do you want someone else making your decisions for you? Or would you rather be responsible for yourself? Figure out who you are. If you want to give up your freedoms then keep on relying on the present form of government. If you want to be responsible for yourself and for your decisions, then begin educating yourself about what's really going on. Don't buy into everything the talking heads on either side are saying. Study it and see how it fits into your personal agenda for how you want your life to be. Then make informed decisions. Don't just rely on a title, GOP or Democrat or Republican or Liberal or Conservative, or Progressive. Make sure you know what you are, not what those titles mean now or what they meant 50 years ago. People are saying the words they think you want to hear. Make sure their actions are the actions you want taken on your behalf to preserve the life you want to lead.

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the devisiveness of the political parties. Then I read of some polls with regard to the approval ratings of Congress and those of Obama. It was very enlightening. Fully 85 to 95 percent of the population is in agreement about almost every issue that's important to Americans. Yet the very small percent of those not in that 85-95 percent appear to be deciding how we're going to live our lives.

I think its time for all of us to band together to preserve and protect our nation. We may have to tear down the massive bureaucracy and replace it with something manageable.

A bunch of Marxists have gained power in the White House by lying to us about what they stood for. Americans were trusting and believed Obama when he spoke. He sounded like he knew what he was talking about. I was leery of him, recognizing the pathological liar who stares off into space as he fabricates one scenario after another, fully believing that he's telling the truth. I will not listen to his negativity any longer. The moment he appears on television we're back to viewing Michael Weston in Florida rather than staying to see if Obama will ever stop talking. I will not listen to anything he wants to say because he twists the truth and lies without allowing anyone to challenge his lies.

Revising history to conform to the way you want things to be is all right if you do it inside your own head, just don't try to sell it to anyone.

We are responsible for where we find ourselves.

This nation finds itself in trouble. Although there were some of us who could see through the bluster of the candidate running for President there were many who believed every word he said. As a result the country is in great danger of being turned into a dictatorship. Some of you are still drinking the KoolAid and saying, "Nah, that will never happen". I might remind them I've predicted a number of things. I predicted the Fort Wayne International Harvester Plant would close due to the union demanding ever more money. It closed. I predicted businesses would go overseas because of the continuing demand for "minimum wage" raises. Everyone said "Nah it'll never happen." Okay. So are you still saying it's never going to happen?

I told people who said "He's going to do a stimulus". Stimulus doesn't mean free money. In the greedy eyes of everyone who voted for him "stimulus" meant a big check in the mail. Once. Is that worth losing our freedom? Then there were the others who said "he's going to take from the rich and give to the poor". Yeah, how long is that going to last? What happens when there aren't any more rich? Everyone will be destitute. No money anywhere for anyone. No welfare, no medicaid, no unemployment, no social security, no free money anywhere for anyone.

No one would listen. So I began collecting the equipment I'd need on my little patch of ground to fend for myself. I began collecting tools. I began collecting seeds, canning jars, and books on how to make do with what you've got. Because that's where we're going to be if we don't do something soon to rescue our country. I began planning how to pay off my mortgage more quickly and how to get along without social security. (We're all participating in socialistic practices, we need to wean ourselves from them.)

Greed fueled the mortgage crisis. Greed from the Seller of the home, every middle man in between to the Buyer. Greed fueled the healthcare crisis. Health insurance used to be inexpensive, but then the medical profession saw that with insurance paying for everything they could ask for more the procedures, the medications, the medical care, and insurance went up, and on the other side of the coin, the insurance company executives saw all that money rolling in and began paying themselves outrageous bonus checks every year...and prices continued to rise and rise and rise. Greed has gotten us where we are today. You can't change the greed in others, but you can change your attitude. Abundance is yours, but it doesn't have to come from the abundance of others. There's enough for everyone, but not so long as you believe one has to take from one person with abundance to supply another. God made enough for everyone.

Become peaceful within yourself and know you are responsible for where you find yourself. You have no power over the beliefs of others. You have no power over the actions of others. It is folly to believe you can "plan" how others will lead their lives. Ultimately those who believe they can control the masses will fail. If the masses don't fall for it and believe it possible the fall will come sooner than later.

Keep on praying positive. Thank you God for preserving the Constitution. Thank you for preserving our individual freedoms, thank you for preserving our economic freedom.

Words of Lee Iaccoca I second that

This came in an email, but it's so appropriate I wanted to repeat it here.

Not a new statement, but how appropriate for our times.

Would you believe that Lee Iacocca is 82 years old and is still kickin' butt? Check out his latest rant.Just as true today as it was when his book firstcame out.
He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman! Often we need to be reminded of Iacocca's words.

Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me the economy is getting better..'

Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned, 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out along with Obama!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore..

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit on your butt and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've neverseen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.. But our soldiers are dying daily.

We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting worse every day!

We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas prices are going to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers union.

Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and free healthcare.

The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

These are times that cry out for leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point..

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the
government will make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy.. Deal with life.

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!

Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The
silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America .. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.
Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!.

It appears the Far Left and the Progressives cannot think of anything adult to argue the point of view of the Right, and so they make up things to say about the Conservatives. Tea Partys aren't anything more than a forum for Conservatives to vent in their silent majority sort of way about the things that disturb them. It is a quiet, gentile attack on concepts that don't agreed with them. It has nothing to do with racism (how do you account for the various conservative black people who are just as involved in the tea parties as the white, red, yellow & brown people?).

I was reading Bill O'Reilly's book this week (it got pushed to the bottom of the pile by all of the books Beck recommended we was worthwhile to read them first.) Sometimes I can't stand O'Reilly, and sometimes I agree with everything he says. That's the way it ought to be. People who use their brains and discover their own understanding of situations can then format their own arguments about the good and bad that exists in the world. I think I have some of the same ideas about fairness that O'Reilly has, and we share a desire to do something about a point. If people don't want to have help with something, no amount of "justice" is going to help them feel better. Fairness is making sure everyone has a fair chance, not that they have equality of material things.

Whenever I state my opinion on other blogs I invariably have attacks from the left. Most times the attacks make me laugh, because they don't argue the issues, the begin calling me names! How childish! If this is what we're up against I don't think we have anything to worry about.

We have to make sure we stick to the issues, and don't resort to the left's name-calling to make our points.

The Administration is infested with people wanting to destroy our country. We've got to get them out of there. Positive Prayer and Faith as well as eternal vigilance to preserve our freedoms will see us through. God always supports the good guys. There are white souls, and there are dark souls. It has nothing to do with skin color, it has to do with the color of one's soul, and we have to support the light souls to survive.

The administration believes its all right to confuse us by changing the meaning of words, that way, in their twisted minds, they aren't really lying to us, they are just using words we understand under the "old" traditional definition, with their "new progressive" definitions. Is that as clear as mud to you? Yeah. Me too!

For instance, Unemployment has a new definition. Employed now means, hired by the government, no matter whether you are fired at the end of the day and rehired at the beginning of the next day. Let's see, that means Then when you're hired at the beginning of the next day, rather than just one job that week, the administration sees two jobs, and then if you get fired Tuesday night and hired Wednesday morning, then they've "created" three jobs that week Just for you! Creative bookkeeping otherwise known as criminally questionable activity.

Do you think you are being kind & compassionate when you observe the living conditions of another, and then go about trying to improve that person's environment by your actions? Did you ask the other person if they wanted their life "improved"?

Why is it that so many people think they are being kind when they foist their opinions about the way life should be lived on another. Different people have different priorities. It doesn't make anyone wrong, it just makes them all different. Becoming concerned about the way another person lives and trying to change that is your inflicting your likes and dislikes, your opinions, on another person. Who gives you the right to do that?

This is exactly what the Liberals are doing to America. They think they know what is best for us and they go about supporting all of this nonsense about "improving" our lives by foisting changes on us that we don't want. Now, instead of just being saddled with the consequences of our own actions, and our own choices, we must be saddled with the consequences of the actions and the choices of those who think they know better than we do what is good for us!

Kindness is not doing for another, kindness is allowing others to live their lives the way they choose to live them. You do not have to approve, nor do you need the approval of anyone else to live the way you want to live.

Lots of people get arrested for criminal acts in our county (and elsewhere all over the country) because they have broken a law (other than being in the country illegally). When they are arrested you would think the most logical thing to do is (1) put them in jail until their time is served for their crime and (2) then deport them from the country because they are illegal aliens. I wondered why the Courts were failing to have these people deported. I learned it was because even though Immigration & Naturalization or whatever they're called these days is called to come and pick them up they fail to do anything to deport them. No one shows up to take them out of the country. There are no people available to do this apparently. The only time you can get illegal aliens to leave the country voluntarily it seems is if they have a warrant for their arrest and can't be found.

As a law office worker who has worked with felony & misdemeanor defense I've seen a lot of these people. They show up and they cannot speak English. This is your first clue they are not legally in the country.

This sudden urge for everyone to learn Spanish so we can accommodate all of the illegal aliens is just plain stupid! The natives of this country, the American Indian was FORCED to learn English by the white settlers, (actually the priests who came into the country to convert the "heathens" to Christianity--- they didn't need converting as they already had a very strong belief in One God).

My solution to the anchor babies is following: Deport the parents and give them a choice (1) Give up their anchor babies for adoption and leave the country or (2) renounce the "citizenship" of your "anchor babies" and take them with you when you leave the country.

I admire the people who have come to this country to better their lives. They have learned more than most of us will ever know about the Constitution and the history of the United States and they learn English. It doesn't matter that they speak it with an accent, they have made an attempt to assimilate and they are proud of being Americans. They fly the American flag and they have earned the right to do so.

There are many hispanics who have come to this country legally and they work hard at supporting themselves and their families, but they learn English. It won't hurt their feelings if the illegals are deported. And who cares if it hurts anybody's feelings?!! How about our feelings. It hurts my feelings that we are paying billions of dollars to support illegal aliens. It hurts my feelings that these people with "anchor babies" are receiving more for ONE of these babies than I receive for having worked and earned my social security benefits for the past 50 years.

Keeping God in your life, and keeping God in America, teaching your kids and speaking up to your friends about the importance of God and religion, any religious belief in One God, no matter the denomination, is the best way to preserve our country and our freedoms. No matter what the present administration tries to do to change things in America, we don't want that kind of change, and 85% of Americans believe in God and don't want that change. It's time to pray positive, pray constantly every day "Thank you God for preserving our Nation as the founders envisioned it, and thank you God for preserving the Constitution as it was written."

The good guys wearing the white hats always win, because good always wins over evil. This country will persevere, and we will get past this bump in the road. Perhaps this sort of damage, being done by the present administration is the very thing we needed to pull the rug out from under us in our complacency. It is time for us all to again take an interest in our country. We need to understand there is evil, there is deception, there is fraud, there are criminal acts being perpetrated against us by people we elected. It is time to admit we've made mistakes in placing our trust in the wrong people. It's time to take back America.

Obama is Narcissist? An interesting article.

The following article was posted a couple of years ago. I found it interesting. It rang true to me, having known my share of narcissists, and the psychology of their illness.

Most particularly I was first alarmed at Obama's appearance because of one statement he made. "I've wanted to be President since I was five years old." At the age of five he was a student in a muslim school in a muslim nation. My very first thought was "who put that thought in his head" and my second thought was, a conspiracy theory?! I don't DO conspiracy theories! I pooh-poohed the idea, but it still nagged at the back of my mind. Knowing the history of Islam and how they planned ahead some years for the attack of 9-11, and knowing they plan far ahead of even that, I began to wonder, was this a plan to infiltrate our government at the top? And then I pooh-poohed that thought. Then I read the following article, and again pooh-poohed my fears. I spoke with people in Washington prior to the election who were young people working for the McCain Palin campaign, and they were intensely worried about the massive voter fraud that was being perpetrated by ACORN. Again, I pooh-poohed their concerns and went on believing this wouldn't happen. I went to vote and there were more people there than I'd ever seen at the polls, and talking with them for three hours in line most of them were Conservatives voting to make sure that Obama wasn't elected. This occurred all over the country, yet Obama was elected and he had more votes in Indiana than liberals ever get in Indiana. Again I pooh-poohed the idea of corruption and fraud in the vote. I think I was wrong and now I say what I've been saying since the day of the election. PRAY POSITIVE: THANK YOU GOD FOR PROTECTING OUR COUNTRY FROM THIS MAN, AND PRESERVING OUR INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS, OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND OUR COUNTRY.

Following is an article I thought worthy of preserving in a blog.

Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist. Interesting view on our newpresident. Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.Dr. Vaknin States "I must confess I was impressed by Obama from the firsttime I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He lookedyouthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident -- a wholesome presidentialpackage. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but alsobecause 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'sspeeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history.Never a politician in this land had such quasi "religious" impact on so manypeople.The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment, makesthis inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He isnot 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 Obamaappears to be a narcissist." Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. Heunderstands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like noother person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin saysthat Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of hisclosest, dearest friends suggest that the man is either a narcissist or hemay 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 hisfollowers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their ownchildren was also a narcissist. David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni,Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao, Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are afew examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendousinfluence over their fanciers. They created a personality cult aroundthemselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filledtheir hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest forlife. 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 itis too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhoodabuse."Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete withtraumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,"says Vaknin. "Mixed-racemarriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorcewhen 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 hadto 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 livewith his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother onlyintermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from hislife in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995."One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathologicalnarcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelmsthose around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people becomelike clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be athis service. The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reducesothers in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality. Hisadmirers become his co-dependents. Narcissists have no interest in thingsthat do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused onone thing alone and that is power. Allother issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste theirprecious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneaththem and does 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 cancriticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by their verynature because they are not about him.Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review ledto a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. TheUniversity of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected andat the end it evolved into, guess what? His own autobiography! Instead ofwriting a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had beenpaid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. Heentitled the book Dreamsfrom My Father.Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he wasstill a nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as importantas his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writingabout insignificant things when he can write about such an august being ashimself?Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lackconscience. This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brotherwho lives on only one dollar per month. A man who lives in luxury, who takesa private jet tovacation in Hawaii , and who raised nearly half a billion dollars for hiscampaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plightof his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for hisascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.This election is like no other in the history of America . The issues areinsignificant compared to what is at stake What can be more dangerous thanhaving a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannotdistinguish 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. Manypoliticians are narcissists. They pose nothreat to others. They are simply self serving and selfish.Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is differentfrom the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton forexample. 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 evenintelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. Today theDemocrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put anend to their party. The great majority of blacks have also decided to votefor Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is raciallydriven. This is racism, pure and simple.The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster Ipredict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacksare unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality ispernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand andblame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among thewhites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent andthey will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than fouryears, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since theturbulent 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 weaknesstranslates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It isno wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, theHamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and virtually all swornenemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the WhiteHouse.America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanitygreater than electing a pathological narcissist as president.

Be prepared to take care of yourself and your family. Even if you have money in the bank and the banks are insured, with things going the way they are right now, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to keep some cash in a cookie jar. In case of an emergency they'd shut down the banks so there wouldn't be a run on them.

Have food enough for at least a week if not longer. Plant a garden if you have the room to do so. Grow your own food. I remember my Grandparents telling me they knew there was a "depression" but that they didn't notice it much because they were poor already, they lived in the country and they grew their own food. They made do with what they had, and lived off the land.

Learn how to "put up" your own food, i.e., can it, freeze it, dry it. I live on a lot in the middle of town that is 33' wide and 152' deep. I've been able to have a sizeable garden in that space.

I once spent several frantic days of a very hot summer week before I had air-conditioning canning a "side" of beef. My father-in-law asked casually "would you like to have a side of beef", and of course, I said yes. In the past all sides of beef I got were neatly packaged and frozen and I'd bring them home and put them in the freezer. He hauled out a whole rib of beef (approximately 3' x 3' and put it in the trunk of my car! I was astounded. What am I going to do with that? I asked. "Can it." When I got home, I shifted the raw side of beef out of my trunk into my son's little red wagon and hauled it into the house where I somehow got it up on the kitchen table. Then I sterilized canning jars and heated up my pressure canner, and began carving chunks of meat off the ribs and plopping them into cans. When the cans were full, I'd put in a teaspoon of salt, put sterilized lids on top, pop them into the pressure canner, and when it was full, put the lid on it, and can the beef for a half hour or more, the whole time resuming the whole process once again, sterilizing more jars, filling more jars, until I had canned nearly 48 quarts of beef. I got all the jars filled and into the refrigerator, still canning in the pressure canner all night long.

I had already canned lots of tomatoes and peaches and green beans from our garden, but with the beef, we lived on vegetable soup a lot for a couple of years. I even ended up canning vegetable soup so we could have it spread out over the year instead of eating it all at once. Beef stew worked well too.

At the time we were also burning wood to supplement our gas furnace in the winter. We cut down trees (some of them I pushed down), and split them and put them in cords for burning. We'd then toss them down into the old coal bin at the house, and burn them in a wood stove that was attached to our furnace. We went through some pretty cold winters and saved a lot of money on natural gas by burning wood. The only downfall was forgetting to run down the basement and fill up the woodburner, and we'd awaken to a house that was 45 degrees (the gas furnace would kick on at 45 degrees when the wood fire went out).

I remember my Grandmother telling me about her mother's bank savings. For a number of years my Great-grandmother had saved her egg money at the bank, in preparation to buy herself a new woodstove for her kitchen. When the depression
came along it wiped out her savings account and she never did get a new woodstove.

The one thing I noticed through those years was that no matter how much money was coming in to the house, there was always enough. One way or another we always survived and we always had enough to meet our basic needs.

The one thing we need to remember is that "God is the Source of our Supply" and we should stop worrying about where it's coming from, just sigh a deep sigh of relief as say "Thank you God for taking care of us."

Cultural moral principles and virtues learned in childhood from elders in one's family society color one's behavior and is a sort of built-in guide for one's adult moral character for life. It's a convenient thing to have learned because it takes away the necessity of "fretting" over every one of one's actions to determine whether they are right or wrong.

Early learning in church and school, particularly in the early 50's set children's minds as to the right and wrong of actions. Even unstated moral upbringing based upon hidden cultural attitudes color one's belief system.

For instance, my maternal grandmother was the grand-daughter of a Shawnee woman who married a Swiss farmer. We heard hints of our heritage from early days, but no one ever actually voiced the information we were Native American. We were always cautioned not to mention that we were "Indians". When my Grandmother was in her mid-90's she said "I suppose its all right to talk about it now." That's when she actually confirmed that her grandmother was a full-blooded Shawnee. She joked "where do you think I got this nose?" She said she thought her nose looked like that of the Indian on the buffalo nickel.

As a result of that information and the wonderful plethora of information available on the internet I began studying the Shawnee, and in particular the words of the wise Chief Tecumseh. I realized the upbringing I had, and the words of my Grandmother were very reflective of the ideas and ideals of Tecumseh. Aside from the great understanding of the morals of the Indian, and the wisdom with regard to Creator and the world, I realized the character of the Indian family is somewhat different from people from other cultures.

For instance, the Indian woman is well-respected and the younger men will go to the older Indian women for advice. Even the warriors would seek the wisdom of the women in their decisions. In a lot of cases it was the quiet, calm, assertive leadership of the women of the tribe that kept the family and the tribe stable. Perhaps that's why I tend to be somewhat bossy?

From the time I was small I was always and constantly chafing against restrictions put on "girls". I was told I couldn't do something because I was a girl. I never understood that, and I became very stubborn about proving girls could do anything they wanted to do.

As well, this could explain as well why I've never been able to take orders well from any man. I listen, and sometimes I do what they want, but not if there's a better, quicker, more efficient way to accomplish the same thing. One employer/friend used to ask me constantly "why won't you ever obey me?!" Well, mostly because his orders were ridiculous, and then there was my reply "When did I take THAT vow?" As I recall I left out the obey part when I got married too. I think in all relationships one must have respect for the other person. There's only been one man in my life that I ever "obeyed" unquestionably. I never could figure out why I did. Perhaps its explained by the fact that I dreamed he was my father in a previous life.

Understanding that the way a child is brought up is important to a child's character growth, and noticing the complete lack of the teaching of morality and virtuous princples in schools, I took my son out of public school in the 2nd grade and put him into a Catholic school. We are not Catholic, but after looking at various parochial schools, St. Pat's filled all of my requirements. They kept trying to get him to convert, and I told them when he was 13 he could make up his own mind about it. When he was 13 he decided he wanted to return to pubic school for high school.

I supplemented his school education, whether parochial or public, with some teaching of my own, pointing out things I learned in church and school and pointing out to him the history lessons from the past, and history as it was being made and what was happening. One Easter I went out of my way to explain to him Good Friday and Easter and what I had learned that it meant, and how it all fit in with my spiritual understandings. He was about seven at the time. He put his hands on his hips and said "Mom. I go to Catholic school! I know about Easter.

At any rate, the teachings he got in Sunday School at the Church of God, and the lessons he got at St. Pat's were good for him and helped him build character. Knowing my Catholic friends, however, I wonder if he also has that Catholic "guilt" trip.

I think its the duty of every individual to understand their own morality. Unfortunately the world is populated with dark souls who would corrupt us and the world around us if they can. Fortunately we need to keep on remembering we are ultimately ruled by the Natural Laws of God and that our beliefs in the Laws of the Universe, the Energy that is God, and adherence to our own understanding thereof will keep us in good stead with society.


It is unconstitutional for Congress or the President to confiscate private property under cover of regulation!

This is exactly what the founders of the Constitution were very careful to write into the Constitution to prevent its happening.

They also very carefully wrote in elements to prevent tyrannical take over under the guise of "democracy". However some time ago "people" began equating America with democracy. In order for the country to survive, we must teach the people this country is a Republic and not a democracy.

With all of the criminal acts being perpetrated under the guise of law by this administration and abetted by the Congress, I would be outright ashamed to even call myself a Democrat!

I've been praying since election day because I saw this coming. I even saw the mortgage crisis coming some 20 years ago when I was preparing bankruptcy papers for clients and saw the outrageous mortgage loans being written for worthless properties. One home that was lucky to have a worth of $5000 because of its location and condition was mortgaged for $120,000.00! Greed, pure greed on the part of everyone involved from Seller to Realtor to Appraiser to Mortgage Broker to Buyer all contributed to the problem.

Look first to yourself about everything that is wrong with socieity, and realize one can only fix oneself. In the meantime continue to pray Thank you God for preserving the Republic, and thank you God for preserving our natural freedoms, to life, liberty & property.

So long as I can remember I’ve had a problem with committing to relationships with others. It’s not that I don’t like other people, and don’t want to be with other people but perhaps it’s the idea that I’ve had a fear of.... well.... commitment. But once I get into a relationship, romantic or business, I tend to stick with it.

My father stated it well, “Jana has never known how to trap a man and hasn’t a clue why she should need to do so.” Perhaps that’s the clue. If someone wants to be with you shouldn’t it be their decision to make? And shouldn’t it be my decision whether I want to be with them or not?

Marriage proposals have been problematic for me. The ones I did accept didn’t turn out so well. And two I did accept were because I was "on the rebound" from another relationship. Luckily I didn't go through with them. I remember going steady in high school and wearing another person’s class ring, but I wouldn’t let anyone know who I was going steady with. It isn’t even that I can’t be faithful to someone. I never cheated on anyone I was married to, nor anyone I went steady with. Once I was in a relationship that worked for me I would be faithful.

Probably a part of it has to do with my never having planned anything up until I was 25 years old. Up until then I’d never thought about it. I didn’t know I could plan my life. I learned I could plan my life when I was about 21 or 22, but didn’t really actively plan anything about my life until a good ten years later. I sort of lived my life accidentally.

I didn’t choose to be a paralegal. I accidentally became a legal secretary as my second job right out of high school. I listed that job on my resume thereafter, and everytime an employment agency would see that, they would send me out to get a job as a legal secretary. Then I accidentally became a paralegal when I went to work in California. I did enroll in paralegal classes in California and did become certified as a paralegal there, but only to learn to be more effective in the job I already had. I didn’t actually plan on taking those courses. Life just sort of happened to me, and I ended up taking law courses because my boss was appointed to the bench, not because I planned to become a lawyer. I learned more than I ever wanted to know about torts and contracts. Then life happened and I ended up back in Indiana again working as a paralegal!

I have been accused of being “manipulative” by a couple of people in the past, and it always astonishes me, because I don’t even “manipulate” my own life. If something is supposed to happen in your life, it does.

When I made mistakes in the past I would educate myself so that I wouldn’t make the same mistakes again. But I never considered that a plan of action or a way to manipulate anyone else. I am a pragmatist, and I notice patterns in life. Perhaps subconsciously I use that knowledge of patterns, particularly in the behavior of others, to dictate how I communicate with others. Perhaps everyone does this.

I have observed there are people of evil intent who do actively scheme to hurt others. It has been my practice to refrain from doing anything that would harm another. My grandmother told me it was wrong to gossip about others. I will never “turn someone in” for anything I perceive to be a wrong action, unless that wrong action has harmed me or my family.

At any rate I’ve never planned on doing anything to force another person to do anything for my own well-being. I’ve always known it wasn’t right to do such a thing. It always hurts me when people accuse me of having done so, and always comes as a surprise. Living life accidentally may be considered by some as being impractical or silly or reckless, but it has never lead me astray. Life lived accidentally is an adventure.

ACLU - who do they think they are?

American Civil Liberties Union . The title sounds encouraging until you discover they're people who want to undermine our civil liberties with stupid non-constitutional restrictions on our liberties! I've changed their name to America's Confused Lawyers (Useless).

Let's start with their convoluted atheistic attacks on our right to worship & express our faith.

It was the intent of the authors of the Constitution to provide schools for the children of our country, and the subjects that should be taught were: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, & Religion. They provided that the country was NOT to have a national religion, i.e., we were not to be a Catholic Country or a Protestant Country or a Jewish Country or a Muslim Country. We were to be a country that was filled with people who were free to pursue their own religion, so long as it was a belief in One God. We were to teach this belief of One God in the schools. Universal Laws (natural laws of God ) were to be the laws of the country.

The country was established as a Republic and not a Democracy. Republics are ruled by the people, whereas Democracies are ruled by those given power by the people to rule and make decisions. Democracies fail because those people given power let the power go to their heads and they become tyrannical. A Republic will always survive on the faith of the people for its survival and their reliance on One God. We can save our country by adhering to the motto In God We Trust.

Some liberal judge has decided the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional! Obviously the judge in question hasn't read the constitution and has no idea of the intent of the authors of the constitution. I read case law for fun sometimes, and I like the appeals court judges who view every situation differently and understand that just because previous case law decided something one way doesn't necessarily mean that it was decided correctly and that it can't be understood in a different way. However, when judges can arbitrarily make case law biased against their political viewpoints, it is outright and completely wrong.

It's time for Americans to stand up and shout when wrongs persist. We were guranteed life, freedom & the ability to acquire property. We were not guaranteed property that we didn't earn. It is unconstitutional to redistribute wealth.

What part of the oath of office haven't these "leaders" listened to? They swore to uphold the Constitution. It appears to me that their intent to usurp the Constitution of the United States by redistributing the wealth is in itself, if not treasonous, it is impeachable.

I think some people in Washington still don't even know what "tea party" means. It means we're sick of being taxed to death on everything as a result of Washington over-spending. Even though I live in a State that's doing fairly well with regard to deficits and has been surviving on surplus and good business practices, eventually all of this is going to bleed over into the State coffers with Washington deciding what we should be doing and then sending orders to the States to pay for the things. It is supposed to be the other way around!!

Tea Party means we are having a civilized revolution to get rid of the people in Washington who just keep on doing all of the same old things over and over again. It's time to get rid of every one of them! It's time for Obama to take his toys and go home because we don't like him doing what he's doing, and we are never going to agree on what he's saying no matter how many times he says it!!

I look at the man and wonder "what the heck are those ears for?" they certainly aren't for hearing what the citizens of this country are saying. He is our elected PUBLIC SERVANT. He believes he's been appointed our MASTER! It's time someone sat him down and read him the truth. The only people he should be bowing to is us, the people of this country.

Furthermore, it's time everyone stopped using the words Democracy as they apply to the United States of America. That's where everyone has gone wrong. We are not a democracy, but we are a Republic. Remember the Pledge of Allegience to the flag? It's "we pledge allegience to the flag..... and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands."

As well, when and why did someone decide that Religion should be eliminated from our country? The founders of this country certainly never had that in mind. In fact, they believed the country should teach Religion in the schools! The only thing they didn't want was for the country to be a "Catholic country" or a "Quaker country" or a "Baptist country", i.e., there was to be NO NATIONAL RELIGION. All religions, and all denominations so long as they believed in the concept of ONE GOD were to be taught in the schools and in our churches. It was never to be eliminated!

If you want a really good understanding of the Constitution and the things our forefathers fought and bled over, then read ...for a start...The Five Thousand Year Leap. It tells what made America last so long.

And keep the faith, because prayer and adherence to the natural laws of God will restore America to what the forefathers wanted it to be. Just keep praying positive, "Thank you God for restoring our Constitutional Freedoms"...pray positive always. Remember if there's something you don't want, saying "no, no I don't want that" merely brings it to you. Say "thank you God, I'd rather have...(and then say the positive thing you want to replace the thing you do not want.)"

I was wondering what I could do about the chaos occurring in Washington with regard to the voting on healthcare. Then I read the book The 5000 Year Leap, and it all became clear. I should do exactly what I've been doing about everything else. Praying. Thank you God for preserving our Constitution, and thank you for preserving our freedoms. And I took a deep breath and sighed with relief. In God we Trust. Why did I miss that? I'm putting it in God's hands and letting it go. Nothing is written in granite, except the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. (I've seen them carved into marble actually). I'm recommending on my Twitter page that everyone just let go and let God handle it. Healthcare is a personal choice, it certainly isn't a right. We don't need people in Washinton telling us what to do, after all, they've got it all backwards, we are the Masters, they are the servants.

I think the residents of each individual state should make State Law that says that any representative, Senate or House, can represent their state, but only for a limit of two terms, and that the representatives so elected shall not make any law from which they as citizens of the United States are exempt. In other words, they must have the same health insurance as us, they must have the same retirement benefits as us, and they must obey all the same laws and rules as us. That may be 50 (not 57) individual laws for each of the fifty states, and then when all 50 states have adopted those laws, they shall be adopted and made into a Constitutional Amendment which the Congress of the United States and/or the President have no power to change without ratification by all of the States...not just a majority, but all of the states.

The State of the Earth-Environmental Action

Do you suppose God is looking down and saying "Good Grief! Look what they're doing to the beautiful world I gave them!! They're going to ruin it!" Or do you suppose God in His Infinite Wisdom had a plan? After all, God is the One who sent us all of the ideas for inventions and progress and advancement in the world. Don't you suppose God Was aware of the consequences of these inventions? Don't you suppose there was an ultimate Plan to solve these supposed problems? I believe God sent us here to experience life so that He could experience life through us. I believe God knows the ultimate outcome of those experiences.

Don't sweat the small stuff. God doesn't. He knows where it's going, and it's all part of His Plan. Everythng will turn out all right. Changes if they happen, will happen. We ultimately will be all right! Stop worrying about what others are doing, and do things the way you feel they should be done, but stay out of other people's business, and don't be telling them how they should live their lives.

This all becomes very evident when the earth begins doing things we have no control over. Earthquakes, Tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, thunder, rain, snow. All of those things are God through nature cleansing the earth and at the same time showing us we only have control over our own thoughts and how we react to all these things.

It's none of my business what you think of me, and it's none of your business what I think of you. We have our ultimate personal freedom to think the thoughts we want to think. Pushing against the beliefs of others does nothing but make you unhappy, it does not change the way the other persons think.

I opted not to listen to or watch the State of the Union speech. I followed the results however. Did you know BHO (my shorthand for Barack Hussein Obama--hell froze over, how did a man with a Muslim name get to be President! People being too politically correct I think.)

It is time BHO and Congress realized that they are our public SERVANTS not our Masters! BHO should be bowing down to us, not to our enemies!!!!

I notice that BHO thinks that "cooperation" means he thinks we should all kowtow to him and agree with him on everything. If we don't we aren't cooperating.

BHO thinks that the average income of Americans is $85,000 a year.

BHO is out of touch? Nay, he's got a problem with the language! He keeps trying to change the meanings of all of our words for one thing. I think this is as a result of his failing his ESL classes (English as a second language).

I predicted on the day after the election in 2008 that BHO would leave his job in disgrace within eighteen months.

I am not burying my head in the sand by not listening to anything he says. I believe in the adage "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me" I've heard all of his lies and I don't buy them anymore. I knew first time I heard him speak he speaks in "circle language" he goes around and around very oratorically saying nothing.

The only 'CHANGE" BHO has perpetrated is changing the meaning of all of our words, and trying to change this country from a Republic to a Socialist Country. They haven't given much credit to the tea parties. Neither did the British and look where it got them with the colonies. We are a very independent people. The mistake Progressive Democrats make is believing that we are too dumb to decide our own futures. They don't know that we are smart enough to change their futures.l
