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.

A Day Late and A Dollar Short

For a while I have been wondering about  the power President (dope and shame) has amassed in his 3+ years as the President.  I thought about his early meetings and bowing to Islamic Heads of States, his friendship with South American dictators, his backdoor deals to push Obamacare and most recently his  power grabbing Executive Orders.  Apparently and thank goodness better brains and more powerful people than I had the similar thoughts.

A couple days ago my good friend and fellow blogger, Subvet at Blowing Sans#1 clik here posted a story by Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret.).  The article referred to various agencies buying up large amount of ammunition's.  These purchases were allegedly for training purposes.  Agreed some of the agencies  you don't normally expect to be armed.  Not that I blew it off  but, admittedly I did file it away in my computer (Commodore 64) like brain.  As a Fraud Investigator I was trained to look for patterns.  My 4 years in the Army Security Agency didn't hurt either.

Quoting from the article of Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret):

"In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen."

Now, this concerns me a little.  Then as I am reading my "Blogs That I Follow"  another good friend and fellow Blogger, Adrienne at Adriennescatholiccorner, runs an article by FuzzyLogic picked up from the American Thinker.  The American Thinker spells it out word for word, item for item and line for line just what I was mulling over.  And, I might add, it is done much much better than I ever could.  If you were ever wondering about what could happen if  President (dope and shame) were not to get re-elected the America Thinker has it posted for you.

Should this happen or should President (dope and shame) try to put these plans in action I really don't know.  However there is one thing I am certain of.....this is a Conservative Outrage!

You can read all or any of theses articles for yourself at the web sites below.  You can also invite your friends to visit Conservative Outrage, the blog, to link to the articles.

Correct Me if I'm WRONG!

Sitting here at the desk and surfing the web I came up with this tidbit of information.  I don't recall seeing it on the Democratic News Networks and not even sure if it may have made some of the "Right Wing" TV  shows. However this info comes from an article on Foxnews Nation,.  Here goes anyway. It is also supported by two other sources unlike Harry Reed's trash mouth!

Going back to July 25, this year.

So the story goes President "dope and shame" just happens to stop by a little diner in Portland Oregon.  There are 3 veterans there having chow.  President "dope and shame" stops to chat.  Then the veterans just give him accolades for his Obamacare package and what a wonderful job he is doing.

First, I thank these veterans for their service to their country.  Because of what they did then! Not, what they do now.  To allow themselves to be used as props by a man who only uses the military when he must for political purposes is shameful.  To pretend that this was a casual meeting when it was later learned one vet has worked for the Obama campaign,  an other's wife is an Obama supporter is disgraceful.  These men were coached by Obama campaign personal and drivne to the diner.  Their behavior is not only disgusting but deplorable.

Given a chance to make amends and set the record straight these gentlemen (?) refused to right the wrong and expose President "dope and shame" for what he is and for the way he uses the military.  All three have refused to go head to head on the Victoria Taft show.  I support these veterans in their right to have a political preference and support their candidate.  THAT is what they bravely fought for.  I abhor their cowardice in failing to come forward and admit they were used as pawns.

This is a Conservative Outrage!

PS, Postscript: (for those of you in Loma Linda)

As I continued to surf the net here is another little tidbit of mooching from the far left I find interesting.  Seems a Federal Judge overruled a Hawaii law that says two homosexuals cannot be married. That debate will go on from now til doomsday.  What caught my attention was:

U.S. District Judge Alan Kay issued a 120-page decision that said court involvement at this point would “short-circuit” the legislative activity that has taken place against the issue. A civil unions law took effect in 2011, but the co-plaintiffs in the suit, Jackson v. Abercrombie, argued that only marriage would give them certain federal benefits.

The only reason they want to get  married is to reap the governmental benefits from some hard working people.  Federal Benefits!  President (dope and shame) at it's best!

This is a Conservative Outrage!

Please STAY IN WASHINGTON D. C., Please!

In the Friday edition of our local rag, the Columbus Dispatch, aka, Columbus Pravada our wonderful President Obama rates an inside Page 6 article.  Slightly unusual for the Dispatch however more important issues are posted above the fold on page 1.  Presidential candidate Romney made below the fold. Our  local skools superintendent made above the fold.  Perhaps because she is making policy for the district and has sparked a statewide investigation by the office of  the State Attorney General for counting/not counting students to bilk funds and favorable impressions of the number of absent students.  In other words her underlings appear to be cooking the books to make the district, and her look better.  

Now back to the illustrious President Obama.  Pravada, er....the Columbus Dispatch is reporting our "dope 'n shame" President is coming back to Ohio AGAIN!  Oh please spare me/us!  Every time "dope 'n shame" comes a a city or burg the cost of safe guarding him cost local taxpayers big $$$.  Yes, some of it is reimbursed.  The pain in the derriere for the locals, many who don't give a darn is the traffic tie-ups, the stores blocked and a general lack of anything worthy.  Oh yes, the union boys will be there and the minority groups that believe he is the messiah will be too.  The squeaky wheels get the grease as they say. However, for us working folks trying to get to work it's a pain in the derriere.  For those of you in Loma Linda that your as......well it's the part of your body that comes in contact with a chair when you sit down.  It seems according to the Pravada, aka the Columbus Dispatch ol' "dope 'n shame" last visited the Buckeye state on August 1st, about two weeks ago.  In keeping with a "Fair and Balanced" Conservative Outrage policy  this will be the 38th visit by a Presidential candidate this year to the Buckeye state.  

Oh the thrill of being a state is up for grabs every time there is a Presidential election!

I'm gonna throw my 2 cents worth in at this time.  Although I am not, repeat not currently using Medicare health insurance THAT I HAVE PAID FOR, FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS, I will in the future.  Mr. Romney's and Mr. Ryan's plan that DOESN'T CHANGE FOR ANYONE 55 years or older,  is a fine with me.  Any body's plan that removes over $700,000, 000 from the Medicare Plan  I PAID FOR, is not likely to get my vote nor that of my children who may wind up taking care of ol' Pops in his senior years. It is very simple math.  More people are applying for Medicare every year.  Take money out of Medicare equals less money for more people.  That ain't rocket science friends, that's just plain ol' simple country boy 'rithmatic!   Removing or playing with a benefit that has been counted on  by hard working Americans for 30, 40, 50 years is unconscionable!   It truly is a CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE!

This is NOT my America!

Few of you know that I got a little part-time gig working for a major bank in Central Ohio several months ago.  I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to work at a job I like.  I work the 3-11 PM shift watching a bank of cameras.  A very good job for a Seasoned citizen. I have been blessed,  Tonight I had to stay over due to an overload of work for the company and the lack of manpower.  I don't mind as there is not much to go home to these days 'cept an ol' black cat.  She eats, sleeps and uses the liter box.  But tonight.............

I was watching my outside cameras and as it lightly rained saw two subjects huddle on a park bench in the small green space the bank has between the three buildings it own in the city.  I was and saw one subject was trying his best to cover the other person with a blanket.  They struggled and huddle as best they could trying to keep warm and dry.  After a while I had the opportunity to take a little stroll outside.  As I approached the two on the bench I could tell it was a man and a woman.  They were not young.  Most likely my age or slightly younger,  late fifties or so.  I had seen them earlier and chatted with them.  At the time they told me they had been to the outdoor concert a few blocks away and were on the way to their car.  Now it seemed a little different.

Betty and John I'll call them were homeless.  Their entire life was packed into a small suitcase with wheels and a large duffel bag.  They were not the typical homeless people you see in a major city.  They were as neat and clean as possible with combed hair and clothes that had been recently washed.  John explained the company he worked for had folded and recently his unemployment had run out.  He walked with a limp and worn "coke bottle" glasses.  Betty was a short little lady who kept apologizing for her hair not being brush but the local shelter was full tonight and she could find a mirror.  That explained what she was doing when I had first encountered them earlier, she was trying to use the window of the bank as a mirror to brush her hair.

John and Betty were articulate and polite while they explained they had used their last $50 for a motel the night before.  They neither asked for money or pity.  Both said this was just a little bump in the 31 years they had been married and they would survive.  They were going to wait until morning in the park and try to call a friend on the west side of town to see if they could help them by making some phone calls to local agencies on Monday.  I was not allowed to allow them in the bank of course however pointed them to a enclosed atrium that would keep them dry and out of the 14 mph wind we were having tonight.  They were very grateful and said thanks them moved to the location.

I don't write this to brag how I helped a homeless couple.  I write this to thank Almighty God for the Wonderful wife He gave me, the three great children we raised and the soon to be 9 grandchildren I will have any day.  My parents raised me in a Christian home with Christian values and I am the recipient of that upbringing.  As my father said to me on more than one occasion,

Except for the Grace of God there go I.

Thanks mom and dad and thank you God.

Pray for the homeless and for those in need.  This is NOT my America!

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.
