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.

Here a CZAR, There a CZAR, Everywhere a CZAR CZAR

Anybody reading my posts have got to know I am not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. However, I was thinking about this before it was reported on several radio talk shows and now TV. I'm talking about the circumventing of the Constitution, the lack of the elected Congressional members to review it, and the possible outcome. Neglected by the national news programs and far left blogs is nothing more than eventual complete control under President Obama.

The Constitution was created exactly to keep control of the country from coming under one person, ie; a King. President Obama's creation of so many CZARS over his cabinet members has quietly transferred power from the Constitution's intended purpose. The Congress, to the best of my knowledge, is the approving power of the Cabinet. It appears that they have NO power over the employment of the CZARS. Either they have no power or with this Congress, no desire. What ever the reason the majority of this Congress needs to be voted out of office this year!

Clik here to see a list of the CZARS this President has appointed and the positions they hold over Constitutionally appointed Cabinet Department heads. Every Cabinet Department head reports directly to someone who has not been investigated and only a few know their true allegiance. These CZARS report only to the President or his right (left) hand guy, White House Chief of Staff Raul Emmanuel. Since these CZARS report to only Emmanuel or the President what is to stop them from trying a South American style takeover. They didn't think it could happen in Germany, they didn't think it would happen in Cuba, they didn't think it could happen in Venezuela. Ask President, Hugo Chavez. He controls the the government after carefully crafting a step by step takeover of Venezuela. I fear this plan was in the book given to President Obama and more fearful that the President actually read it!

It's time to take notice people. It's time to stand up people. It's time to grab the torches and pitchforks, go up the path to the evil castle and wrestle the control of this country back to the people. Call your Congressman or Senator NOW!!!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!

We must take a stand! We must take a stand, NOW!

According to Gallup polls, 85 percent of Americans report being satisfied with the quality of care they receive—despite the fact that patients get, on average, just 55 percent of the care that experts recommend for most major medical conditions. www.healthbeatblog.com/2008/07/

"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling health care?"

  • Approve: 44
  • Disapprove: 34

"Which of the following three statements comes closest to expressing your overall view of the health care system in the United States? (1) On the whole, the health care system works pretty well and only minor changes are necessary to make it work better. OR, (2) There are some good things in our health care system, but fundamental changes are needed. OR, (3) Our health care system has so much wrong with it that we need to completely rebuild it."

  • Minor changes: 13
  • Fundamental changes: 51
  • Completely rebuild: 34

What this tells me is less than half the people think or feel we need change or radical change.

Governors worried by healthcare bill costs

Say states could get new Medicaid burden

Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico said, “I’m personally very concerned about the cost issue, particularly the $1 trillion figures being batted around.’’ Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico said,

“I’m personally very concerned about the cost issue, particularly the $1 trillion figures being batted around.’’ (Rogelio V. Solis/Associated Press)


Now we all remember Mr. Richardson, wasn't he one of President Obama's picks for a cabinet post, before the American public found out about him being investigated by the FBI?

Two points here:

A. What ever happened to the investigation?

B. Isn't is strange that Governor Richardson, a liberal DEMOCRAT, questions President Obama's health care plan?

Although many governors said significant change was needed, they said their deep-seated fiscal troubles made it a terrible time to shift costs to the states. With the recession draining states of tax revenues even as their Medicaid rolls are surging, the National Governors Association projects that states will face aggregate deficits of $200 billion over the next three years.

Governor Phil Bredesen, a Tennessee Democrat, said he feared Congress was about to bestow “the mother of all unfunded mandates.’’

“Medicaid is a poor vehicle for expanding coverage,’’ said Bredesen, a former healthcare executive. “It’s a 45-year-old system originally designed for poor women and their children. It’s not healthcare reform to dump more money into Medicaid.’’

He was far from alone. “As a governor, my concern is that if we try to cost-shift to the states, we’re not going to be in a position to pick up the tab,’’ said Governor Christine Gregoire of Washington, a Democrat. www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2009/07/20/governors_balk_over_what_healthcare_bill_will_cost_states/?page=1


The charts below are pilfered from Real Clear Politics. For the complete article clik here. I had some really neat charts but blogger wouldn't take them so I had to delete them. I believe you can make out the numbers

"Are you very satisfied with the quality of your care, somewhat satisfied, somewhat dissatisfied or very dissatisfied?"

Very SatisfiedSomewhat Satis.Somewhat Dis.Very DissatisfiedUnsure
6/18-214934971


"Are you very satisfied with your health insurance coverage, somewhat satisfied, somewhat dissatisfied or very dissatisfied?"


Very SatisfiedSomewhat Satis.Somewhat Dis.Very DissatisfiedUnsure
6/18-2142391181


My point to all this is when even Democratic Governors are questioning the President's Health Care Plan, the plan includes coverage for illegal immigrants, expands abortion coverage, and if my math serves me right, according to these and other polls over 80% of the American public is satisfied with what nobody can argue is the best medical care in the world.

Where the He-- does this guy, President Obama, and sidekick, Nancy Pelosi, get the idea we want health care changed RIGHT NOW. We can't afford what these morons have rammed through Congress in the first six months. Our grandchildren will be paying off this debt. If, this country is still around

Call your Senator and Congressman NOW and tell them to enough is enough and you WILL remember it on Election Day.

UPDATE/ BANNED FROM THE 4th

In my desire to keep Conservative Outrage "fair and balanced" I have sent a 2nd request to the General Chairman of the Bristol 4th of July parade. Both emails are below.

This is a second request
for your comments regarding the issue reported on the Glen Beck Radio Program. The issue was your organization refused to allow a float in your 4th of July parade because they were handing our copies of the Bill of Rights. My first email to you is below. I respectfully request a response from you. If no response is received you leave me no other choice but to post that you have refused to reply. I will then email copies of my emails to my followers and have them posted on their sites.

Thank you

Proud father of an 82nd AIRBORNE Paratrooper and Iraq veteran


Dear Sir,

It is being reported on the Glen Beck Radio Program that your committee did not allow a float in the FOURTH OF JULY parade because they were handing out copies of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. It is also being reported they were not allowed to wear traditional native American dress, nor have a PA system, nor hand out symbolic Tea Bags.
Would you please take a minute to respond to this allegation? This request will be posted on my blog
Conservative Outrage.blogspot.com. Also be advised your response will also be posted. At Conservative Outrage we like to post both sides of and issue and let the readers decide.

A Discussion, Not a Debate

Why oh why didn't I call this Christian Conservative Outrage? Because I don't like to mix religion and politics together. That's one reason I left the Lutheran Church. Politics from the pulpit. No thanks, I like my politics on the stump and my religion from the pulpit. In this ol' boy's opinion they ain't to be mixed! Now that I have got that off my chest I feel better.

Let me set this up. My daughter is a very good and strong Christian. We have always had good discussion regarding certain theories about religion. Of course we never argue or get mad at each other. Well maybe she does (not really)but I never do. Actually I believe we do quite well even though we may have different opinions about things. Especially my best friend who is Jewish. Why this should bother her I don't know. Her Great Grandmother was Jewish. Her grandmother whom worshiped the ground my daughter walked on very quietly brought her Jewish traditions into our family. Even though she converted to being a Lutheran when she married my dad. OK, so you should have the idea now.

Sarah, my daughter, and I were walking in the park the other day. Of course at some point the discussion came to a question about ABNMOMMA and what she was doing. I said she was looking down at us and smiling. Just waiting hopefully for me to join her. Sarah's thoughts were different. Of course I rebutted with in Heaven there is no sadness only a feeling of joy and understanding. There is no pain nor suffering and earthly beings like Sarah and I were looked on with a peace that knows no pain. An understanding that this is the way it is and has to be. It's part of the Plan.

I emailed my draft to Sarah telling her I wanted it to be accurate. She emailed me back with her reply. I have edited out my glaring misunderstandings of our conversation. Here is her reply.

This is not exactly what I said or what I meant... I said and believe that i don't think that Mom is paying any attention to what is going on down here on earth because the Bible says that "there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying or pain;"and if she saw us down here sad it would make her sad too and that just can't work. Thinking this way takes more faith and less comfort. God watches over us and takes care of us. If we have a personal relationship with him then when we get to heaven our "job" is to worship him and that is what we will be doing and all we will care about doing because Jesus died for us this is what God's word says, not our own emotional comfort.

Now, without taking sides and playing nice how about commenting. IMHO what is your understanding of Heaven? You can even go so far as to tell us what do you think ABNMOMMA is doing. Is she looking down? If you read my post at Mark 1:11 you know I had a feeling about her the other day.

What is your Heaven?

Update

Although the news on Specialist Lesh is slow and sparse a Sargent in Jacob's section was able to make direct contract with him. He said "I'm ok but coming home" Of course coming home means his wounds are serious but we rejoice in him actually speaking on the phone. I will be heading to Fayville in the morning and hope to actually talk with the Sargent who spoke with him. Until then please keep Specialist Lesh in your prayers for a quick and speedy recovery.

Bless all of you who have given up prayers and passed this along. I know many of you have as I have had comments from several new bloggers.

Have a wonderful 4th of July and remember our warriors who keep us free.

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.
