Good day Americans.
With everything going on, I thought my sister's alternate point of view was important to the national conversation. I hope you all enjoy the post as much as I did.
Ok, I have had enough. I tend to shy away from posting too many of my personal views for fear of backlash but not today. I'm done. Here's the deal:
I've just fi...nished doing laundry, dishes, vacuuming, making beds, and cleaning up after the 4 males I have the privilege of living with. I'm sick...literally. I was up most of the night with a cough and body aches...but guess what!?!? I am happy. You want to know why??
Because I am NOT OPPRESSED. I am NOT less of a woman. I have rights...and one of my most treasured rights is to provide a clean, safe, welcoming home for my husband and 3 sons whom I adore! I do NOT have to do these things, however, I have the RIGHT to do them and choose to do them because of the freedom I have in this great Country! Thanks to the men and women who already went before me and fought for my freedoms...I can already choose! I don't need to March around spewing hate and divisiveness all whilst wearing a "VAGINA" hat! Imagine that! (INSERT EYE ROLL AND BLATANT SARCASM 👉 HERE)
You want a "safe place"???? How about locking yourself in your room with your Bible and crying out to the Almighty God to help save this country from its morally bankrupt, self-serving, entitled, whiny, crybaby, hedonistic, divisive, and self-deprecating ways!!! How about loving your neighbor as yourself instead of coveting the car your neighbors drive!
My job is not to make sure that my Sons grow up to be "productive members of society"....but rather to teach them about justice, and KINDNESS, and walking humbly with their God.
This country is going to hell...literally. Put THAT in your vagina hat and smoke it.
Good morning Americans!
Today, we exercise one of the things that separates our country from the rest of the world, the peaceful transition of power. As I watch the events of today from my television as most of us are, I was struck by the difference between the commentary you hear in the coverage, and the actual events of the day.
I am specifically encouraged by the warmth and grace I just watched the Obamas show to the Trumps as they arrived for the traditional tea prior to... the inauguration.
I encourage all of my friends whether right, left or in between to take note of this, as this is the grace we should all be showing on this day. May we all discourage angry or even violent reactions to this day and remember the most important thing. WE ARE ALL AMERICANS.
God bless, have a great inauguration day, and wonderful weekend.
Good morning Americans,
I wanted to share a couple thoughts before I head out for the weekend with some friends that were awesome and invited my wife and I out to their boat with them. As my wife and I head out for a weekend of peace, it is my hope that you will all continue to encourage peace in the wake of our election cycle. To that end, Since the multiple calls for sanity and civility are not being heeded, I wanted to point out a few things that I hope you all try to sh...
Good morning Americans,
I don't share a lot of content from other sources here, largely because I try to keep it to my own thoughts, and constitutional education, but this sums up how I feel so well I just had to share it. I do have a few liberal friends that follow this page, and I hope this clarifies some things on how Trump actually got elected.
Good Day Americans!
I have made no bones about the fact that I see America as the single largest failing corporation in the world, or who I thought was the best candidate to fix it was. I am extremely saddened today to see what Hillary supporters are posting to social media. For months, they have hammered Trump supporters about the need to back her "when" she won. It is disappointing to see how quickly they degrade to anger, insist that Trump supporters apologize to variou...s minority groups, etc.
Listen folks, there is a reason why there were large coalitions of LGBT, black, hispanic, and muslim Trump supporters. The reason for that? Because the only reports that he was against any of those groups came from Hillary and company. I suggest to all Americans that the time has come to join together as a nation. Back those elected, and work together for a better future.
As a Trump supporter myself, I can promise you all this, I will not apologize for wanting to see our country pulled from the financial toilet. I will not apologize to anyone who thinks Trump will ignore, marginalize, or persecute them because I simply do not see that as being the truth. I see a Trump presidency increasing everyone's individual freedom, as well as their individual responsibility. While time will tell whether this assessment is correct or not, one thing is certain, you cannot claim to be more tolerant of anyone else's opinion while spewing hate at those you claim as friends.
Take care, love each other and be a part of the healing, not the divide,
Good afternoon Americans,
Like them or hate them, Project Veritas is correct in their assertion that the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the associated super PACs have violated Federal Election laws. While I do not think that there is any chance that they will be charged as they should, I think we the people should be charging them at the voting booth. Just in case you missed it, here is the link to the latest damning video.
Oh, and my own personal note on their first video of this series, I sincerely hope that all of those injured by violence paid for by these entities at Trump rallies band together and sue the crap out of these people for damages.
Stay strong Americans,
I don't hold out a ton of hope that even when the required signatures are gathered, that our inciter in chief will follow through, but at this point, anything is a shot. Please help this petition get the signatures it needs, things need to change NOW.
Good morning Americans,
I'm still shaking my head this morning. Comey laid out all of the violations of law, and yet refused to bring charges.
Comey admits that she had classified materials on her own server. This is a violation of 18 US Code § 793. For those in the security clearance world, we understand that violation of this law does not require intent to put us in jail....
There has also been no bones made about the fact that she willfully destroyed the emails. For those unfamiliar, this is a direct violation of 18 US Code § 2071. You will note that subsection (b) of this statue states that anyone guilty of destroying government records cannot hold public office again.
Folks, this cannot stand.
Anyone who has held a security clearance, especially in the last 10-15 years should be absolutely PISSED about this. If it was any one of us, not only would they have pressed charges, they would have held us in custody while they did the investigation!
Welcome to 2016 everyone!
IEC is finalizing our preparations to announce another new line of products within the next few weeks. In preparation for this anno...uncement, we don't want to give too much away, however, if anyone works for a company that would be interested, or you yourself are interested in being an IEC authorized battery dealer, please contact us through the website, Facebook, or call us at 719-338-1190 for dealership information and details.
Good Morning Americans,
I posted this on my personal page a few years ago, and well, it's still funny! Read, enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
To All My Liberal Friends:...
Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or
secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2016, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to
society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.
To All My Conservative Friends:
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I wrote this a while ago. But I still believe this is true
Good morning Americans.
Back before the timline took over pages, I had a whole discussion section of this blog set up to discuss the meanings of the various sec...tions and amendments of the constitution. In particular, I really miss the section that was devoted to the 9th amendment. While partisans will argue that this amendment is of little effect, I submit to you that by looking at the writings of the founding fathers at the time of the ratification of the bill of rights, that this amendment was indeed intended to be the "People's veto".
James Madison wrote of this by saying ''It has been objected also against a bill of rights, that, by enumerating particular exceptions to the grant of power, it would disparage those rights which were not placed in that enumeration; and it might follow by implication, that those rights which were not singled out, were intended to be assigned into the hands of the General Government, and were consequently insecure. This is one of the most plausible arguments I have ever heard against the admission of a bill of rights into this system; but, I conceive, that it may be guarded against. I have attempted it, as gentlemen may see by turning to the last clause of the fourth resolution"
His reference at the end of this was to what we know now as the 9th amendment. It seems abundantly clear by reading what he wrote on the subject, that the intent of this amendment was to ensure that "We the People" had legal recourse against unjust laws, and that the reason for the enumeration of rights was to restrict the government, and not the people.
So, what does this mean for us today, and what was it intended to mean? For us today, we as a country have never understood that we had a veto against tyranny instilled in the constitution. As such, judges have long dismissed the 9th amendment as inconsequential.
I submit that this amendment was in fact intended to be the people's veto to unjust laws, just as the 10th was intended to be the state's veto. This means that all of the many laws, whether instigated by congress, or judicially activist judges, are in fact unconstitutional.
What kinds of things was the 90th amendment meant to avert? First, I believe the 9th amendment was meant to keep the government out of the people's "pursuit of happiness". I believe that this amendment was intended to keep the government out of such politically divisive topics such as gay rights, abortion, religious expression, or any other personal conduct that does not cause harm to another person. While I do have my own views and opinions on the above topics, I believe that the 9th amendment is my guarantee that the government was not allowed to legislate my views on these topics.
I believe that "We the People" need to take our veto back, and begin to systematically repeal laws and judicial rulings that have weakened OUR amendment, and veto. By accomplishing this, we will eliminate much of the political rhetoric that politicians use to divide and distract the people so that our rights can by systematically taken away. I encourage all of you to consider taking up one of these causes and fighting for our rights.
Good morning Americans,
Lets have a frank conversation about a couple of things shall we? First, I give a crap about what Starbuck's makes their cups look like. How about we all agree that as an independent company, it is their right to do what they do. If you are that offended that they didn't make them look like you think they should have looked, then don't buy the coffee, write the company, or whatever you feel is appropriate. At no time has this company EVERY espoused... christian beliefs in any way shape or form.
Now, that being said, the other side needs to back the hell off too. Don't sit there and and be offended that the owner of Chick fil a or whatever other company has no problem stating what he believes when directly asked about his PERSONAL thoughts on a matter.
To both sides, stop being hypocrites joyfully praising when one company offends the other side, while crying foul and insisting that another company be punished for something you don't like. Guess what folks, companies are in business TO MAKE MONEY, NOT TO PANDER TO YOUR BELIEFS OR LACK THEREOF.
Oh, and guess what folks, this applies to all of the idiotic legislation you all keep trying to get passed as well. Stop trying to one up the other side, and maybe we can finally kill some of this hate our "political leaders" keep trying to stir up.
