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.
