My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass: The term critical mass is used to refer generally to the minimum amount of something needed to produce a given effect:

No, this is not going to be a post about the law of physics, although I do know that Energy = Mass times Velocity , squared. Pretty impressive isn't it. Actually referring to my blog title page quote:

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." President Thomas Jefferson".

I believe our county may have reached "critical mass". If Senator Obama wins the election and the Democrats win 60 seats in the Senate they will be able to give every one of their supporters what they want and we will have nothing. Therefore if America has reached "critical mass" "they" will have nothing . This county was founded on hard work, high morals and in case those on the "left" can't read the Declaration of Independence, God, the Almighty! The welfare state created by the Democrats going back to President Lyndon Johnson may have finally out populated the non-welfare state of hard working, high moral, God fearing Americans. We have allowed our colleges to be infiltrated by the likes of Bill Ayers, our congress to be controlled by self serving lawyers and lobbyists, and our general life by those who's feelings are hurt by mere words. What a sham and a shame.

Years ago, at the age of 9 I was afflicted by a disease that would require me to wear a full leg brace and a 4 inch lift on my "good" leg. I did this for 3 years. I was teased unmercifully by the other children on the playground because I couldn't run, play baseball, and walking up the stairs at my 3 story old brick school house was a chore. I was called "crip, criple, slowpoke" and other names I don't even remember. My mother had a little piece of advise for me one day which went like this. Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

My father, an Army veteran of WWII was good with old sayings. He would follow my mother's comments with something like, when the going gets tough, the tough get going, or, lead or follow, just get the hell out of my way. Well guess what, after I discovered this little fact and lost the leg brace I managed to play 4 years of Varsity football, ran track for 4 years, enlisted in the ARMY, and did forced marches with the rest of the Joes. At the ripe old age of 53 I was running in 5K and 5 mile races. Oh, did I forget to mention the Doctors said I would probably never walk properly again. At the age of 60 I don't even have a slight limp.

Why do I mention all this, because it is about time we Conservatives stand up for ourselves and say enough is enough. If I offend you by saying something you disagree with, if I do something you disagree with, if I write something you disagree with, guess what. GET OVER IT!!! I am Popeye, the Sailor Man, I am what I am. You are what you are. Quite whining and get back to supporting America first, not your ethnic persuasion, not your sexual persuasion, not your, heritage. God, Duty to your county and your family come to mind. You live in the greatest county in the world, NOW ACT LIKE IT!!

I always wonder why liberals always use Senator Teddy Kennedy as a guiding light. What's wrong with his big brother President John F. Kennedy. Are they afraid that someone might remember President Kennedy's inaugural address where he said, "ask not what your county can do for you, ask what you can do for your county". America is the leader of the Free world, emphasis on FREE. Now get off your duff and don't be afraid to tell the next person who is whining about no job, or losing their house, or having their feelings hurt to: "Get over it, Grab yourself by the butt and pull yourself up, don't expect the government to do it or you will have a "government strong enough to take everything you have".
Have we reached Critical Mass? I fear so, I hope not.
God Bless America and the warriors who defend our freedom

i love that quote at the top of the blog.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
