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.

Day 62



Lead, follow, or get the Hell out of my way, Mr. President!


Several things have happened today that need reporting on. The 1900 pages House of Representives abomination that even covers VENDING MACHINES. OMG! I don't really care at this point if it's a REP, DEM, IND, or JERK! The people in Washington have lost their minds! That's number one.


As I was sitting at the ol' computer listening to tunes and thinking of things that better go unsaid, not bad things, just personal things. One of my favorite CD's got popped in the player. Charlie Daniels. The Mrs and I saw him perform at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, NC. He was born and raised right across the Cape Fear River, in Leland County if I remember right. He had his 80+ year old mother on the stage at the concert. He seems to be very country and down to earth. Well, as I am so prone to say, it started me thinking. Not good! Here's what I cam up with.


Some excerpts from a couple of his sons "struck a cord with me" . Get that struck a cord, Charlie Daniels, that's a joke. How 'bout a chuckle. Here are some of the words I found worth repeating and thinking about.


Some people ain’t afraid to take a stand


What this world needs is a little more respect,


For the Lord and the lawSome good people up front to take the lead


I’m full of American pride

I keep a Bible on my table and a flag out on my

I don’t mind paying taxes, but it makes my temper itchWhen my hard earned money goes to make some politician rich

Now you intellectuals may not like it,But there’s a whole lot more of us common folks,Than there ever will be of you




I ain't nothing but a simple man,Call me a redneck,

there's things goin' on that make me mad down to the core

There's crooked politicians

crime in the street

I ain't gonna take it no more

We tell our kids to just say no,And then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer

you know what's wrong with the world today?

People done gone and put their Bibles away

I'm the kind of man that wouldn't harm a mouse,But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house...I've got a twelve gauge shotgun

there ain't no excuse For the raping and the killing and the child abuse

I've got a way to put and end to all that mess

You just take those rascals out in the swamp

Put them on their knees and tie 'em to a stumpAnd let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest


If you have made it his far you must be a real fan of Conservative Outrage or Charlie Daniels. Admittedly some of it is a bit extreme however, after a fair trial do we really need 25 appeals for a child abuser or murder? I'll type you decide.


HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Boo!

Day 60

Lead, follow, or get the Hell out of my way, Mr. President!

Yes, friends, it has been 60 days since our President has received the report HE requested, by HIS hand picked General. The one that HE is supposed to use to direct HIS war (Afghanistan) HIS way! Not that I am any kind of analyst when it comes to military matters however, it does seem to me, perhaps only to me, the Taliban senses a weakness in our President's lack of resolve to make a life and death decision. It is easy to say what you will do once you are elected. It is totally another to follow through. It appears to me, perhaps only to me, President Obama cannot make the difficult decision. Now that is my ever so humble opinion regarding that.

Breaking news on most media channels The Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy Pelosi, will release her health care package tomorrow morning. I am sure someone all ready has copies. In the mean time for your reading pleasure here is a nice little blurb about said health bill and more of the DC elite MIS-SPENDING our money! Clik here, clik now.

Day 59

Lead, follow or get the Hell out of my way Mr. President!

I love retirement, well semi retirement, mustn't forget my 2 or 3 days a week for the world's largest retailer! Retirement does give me ample time to scan the latest news outlets and the ever informing Internet. Talk about a wealth of information(?) or perhaps disinformation.

Keeping with the Conservative theme of this blog I feel compelled to post this latest article. As a Conservative I can't believe it. However, as a person who lives in a what some people are trying make in to a "politically correct" (what ever that is) society it is believable. I'll give you a snippet and you can clik to read the rest if you wish.

Every year Penn State University plays a game called football. Every year since the beginning of the Revolutionary War, Joe Paterno has coached the game. (
Just kidding, only the last 50 or 60 years). Penn State has made the "white out' into a new get behind the team symbol. All Penn State fans wear white. You should the pictures of the stadium on game day. Wow!

Apparently, I believe, a Penn State student has come up with a new T-shirt using the Penn State helmet line and Penn State design. To some moron or morons, whichever, it looks like a, dare I say, a "CROSS" Oh my G__! A "CROSS" on a college campus! What is this world coming to!! You get the gist of this. I can't think of a word ridiculous enough to describe this..., situation. Here is the complete article: clik here

DAY 58

Lead, follow, or get the Hell out of my way Mr. President!

I have searched all the major news outlets for a better Headline Story and alas have found none.

Leading with impotence of the Commander in Chief is not the way I like to start a post however, it continues to be in the forefront of Conservative American. Health Care is now being shopped as "consumer protection" and other ridiculous names. All we need is another government program that cost 85% of the America general public more in taxes. All this to pay for 10% of the public who can get health care at any hospital in this great country. Yes, what about the other 5% you say. Many of them don't feel they need it or want it for what ever their reason.

It appears the Democrats aren't the only party with a chink in their armour. It seems VP candidate Sarah Palin has come out of Alaska swinging. I even heard one commentator suggest she may run as a 3rd party candidate. Now there's is an interesting possibility. I wonder if she could get Ross Perot to back her. According to article here she is backing a more conservative Independent candidate than the Repubs are supporting. G-d Bless her. If there is still a United States of America left by the time President Obama and his communist cronies get done dismantling the Constitution she may actually have a shot. Perhaps she could get Hilary to run as VP.

HOT OF THE PRESS.

Sarah Palin's candidate leads in polls. Read it here, read it NOW!

Do We Need Optical Assistance?

I went to church today. How profound you say. So he went to church today. If you don't want a little lecture in living clik out now. If you want to get a lesson in life, stay tuned.

My Pastor is a great guy. I am not saying that to butter him up. I do believe he is. He and his wife and his church have done a lot for me in more ways than he will ever know. He started his sermon this morning poking a little fun at himself. Seems he went to the local grocery store and purchased some items. When checking out the lines were longer than he wanted to wait so he went to the "U Scan" line. After scanning his items he slid his card and then realized he didn't have his glasses. He needs his glasses to read. He backed up a little in an attempt to read what to do next. He backed up some more, and again for a third time. He then heard someone laughing. It was a friend of his who offered his glasses to Pastor. He used them pressed F1 and proceeded with his purchase.

Here's his point, the point I am stealing from him tonight. I am stealing it because I think it's a point we all need to think about. He couldn't see. He backed up and still couldn't see, he backed up again and couldn't see, then a voice said can I help you. It was a friend. I believe he used the term he needed a little optical assistance.

Today we blog and blog and dissect and discuss our personal political ideas. But do we really see? Do we really see the "big picture" What is the big picture? In Pastor's day it wasn't really seeing the F1. It was getting the groceries. In our blogging maybe we should on occasion back up, and back up some more. Wait for His voice to help us get a little optical assistance. He has the "big picture" in focus all the time. We only know what He is willing to let us see. Occasionally He allows us a peek of the "big picture" but that, is His choice, not ours.

Let's all take a step back from our political views and listen for His voice. Maybe then, and only, maybe then will He give us a peek of what's to come. Life on earth is short my friends, eternity lasts for.........well, forever.


God Bless America, America, Bless G-d

Ilegals, YES or NO

The blog title is Conservative Outrage, not what did the President do wrong today. I would like to move away from the current Outrage that will be blasted over the airways for the next couple of days and move to a more controllable issue. Illegal Immigration and the church.

I was somewhat surprised when I received notice of this article but not shocked. I may have mentioned that ABNMOMMA and I left the Evangelical Lutheran Church two years ago. The stand of the church on illegal immigration and other topics was the reason. We had this silly belief the church was there to teach the Bible and not make political advertisement. Apparently we were wrong. I have posted before of my feeling regarding the role of the minister in the Christian religion and state it again. Take care of my spiritual needs. I'll take care of my earthly issues and my illegal brothers from down south of the border.

Here is an article that got this all started. Clik HERE. I will give the ELCA credit, they apparently do not belong to this organization. Having said that the Bishop of Central Ohio has signed a letter stating the same position. It's ok to be illegal. Breaking the law is OK. I think someone better read their Bible.

My story

I live in Ohio. I am on Senator Sherrod Brown's email list. Every so often I get an email from him. Today I got a health care update. It ask me to share my story. Well, most of you know me well enough by now, if you don't want to know the answer, don't ask the question. Here is my response to Senator Brown's request for my story. I wonder if it will get posted on his web site, hmm.

Senator Brown,

Here's my story. My wife was diagnosed with lung cancer September 30,2008. It had already spread to her liver. She passed away March 30, 2009. Within days of diagnosis, she had the Chemo treatments Doctor ordered. She had all the necessary medicines she needed immediately after I drove to the drug store and picked them up with a minimum co-pay. Her last week she spent in the Fairfield County Hospital with doctors and nurses providing love, care and compassion for her. I was able to be with her in the room 24/7 and even received food and comfort from the staff as the end drew near. She passed away gracefully with her daughter and husband at her side and her Warrior son in route from Ft. Bragg. Thanks to the Red Cross.

My cost for all for all this treatment? A couple of thousand dollars. The total bill for all this treatment. Nearly $100,000. Am I bitching, HELL NO! She got the best care she could without government interference. Her family was taken care of during this time with no government bureaucrat making decisions on what it cost or what medicines she should have been given.

COMMENTARY

Do you, in your right mind, really think I am willing to trade the care she got for a government run agency that cannot manage a Cash for Clunkers, Social Security, Tarp, where's the money?, or General Motors, closing Saturn today news, or anything else it touches. Have you lost your mind?

Will you specifically exclude abortion and illegal immigrants and specifically include EVERY legal American? Will you make it MANDATORY that every government worker have the same health care plan you want me to have, including you, your family, the President and his family?

If you will, you will have my vote when you run again. If not, enjoy your time in Washington, it will be short lived. If you wish to use my story please feel free to do so. You have my permission, as your boss, to leave the COMMENTARY out.

Respectfully,
Gary

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.
