Glenn Beck's Honor

Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor 2010 was a call for America to return to our roots.

Glenn spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where as Sarah Palin said " Two Score and 7 years ago " MLK Jr. made his exceptional " I have a Dream " Speech.
What more honor could Glenn and Company have paid to MLK Jr. than to speak about America's return to God on this date and at this sacred place.

Every Public School in this Country should Re-Play this entire event to the student population. Conservatives wonder why our Country has veered so far off course and then elected a Radical President. The removal of God from our Schools was a major contributor. Our Youth has no direction, no moral compass. There is a small minority, who thanks to their parents, know the truth and follow God in their lives. They will be the leaders and new cornerstones in this Nation.

All is not lost. Brave men like Glenn Beck who will stand on Government Property and proclain the need for God in our lives and Country will lead the way. Who will be the next Ronald Reagan or John Wayne ? These Patriots are out there, seeking direction. The future will see a rebirth of citizens placing God back in our Country, as it was founded.

Many thanks to Glenn Beck and all the others who stood up on those steps and told the truth !
November is Coming !

Chrysler Finance Expects Churches to make Payments.

Every Day I cease to be amazed. My Brother in Law called this morning. He is battling Cancer and cannot work any longer. He has a Dodge truck financed thru Chrysler Finance.

Chrysler Finance called last week, he is 1 month behind on his payments. He pleaded with the caller that he needed a refinance, some help, any help, to keep the truck rather than let it go back. The caller next dropped a bombshell. He recommended he go to a local Church and ask for assistance. My Brother in Law could not believe what he heard. He asked what do I do next month, go to another Church and repeat. The called said yes.

My Brother in Law told the Caller he would go to Church for only one reason, to worship God, not to beg for money.

It appears this is where we have gotten to. The Financial Sector, suffering thru a Recession, is expecting people to turn to Churches to keep them afloat. My Brother in Law reminded the caller that Chrysler had had recieved Government/Citizen's Money and now they were looking to Churches to fund them. The caller stated that Chrysler Finance did not recieve any Government/Citizen's Funds. I have not yet taken the time to research this claim as I am too upset.

Where in the world are we headed when the Financial Sector tells us to bleed money from the Faithful. This is an outrage. My Brother in Law told the Caller before he would do as they said to come and get the Truck, Period. The Caller reminded him he was on a taped line which he replied, Fine, Bring it to Court and let everyone hear this outrage.

I always welcome feedback. I am interested to know if this is becoming widespread with the economic downturn or is this an isolated incident perpatrated by an overzealous irrelegious libertine.

Somebody's got to Say it !

First, to my Brother in Arms, Johhny Franks, Hubba. Now let's get to the point.

Many of us are disgusted by the actions of President Barrack Hussein Obama. He continues to show his allegiance by Ramadan Celebrations and all things Muslim.
To my knowledge, and I am sure I will be corrected if possible, he does not attend a Christian Religious Organization. As for myself, I now believe that he is of Muslim faith. I know that as others have stated, the attention this current scandal has attracted is probably disguising more sinister actions hidden from the light of day.

Americans, most anyway, have a sore spot when it comes to the World Trade Center Attacks. Speaking for myself, I believe that the United States is in a Religous War. A war that is anchored in the most sacred of feelings. If an enemy is so deeply devoted to the point of Suicide Bombings, does anyone besides our President that we can make nice and get along. These people understand one thing, conquer or be conquered.

We have got to call this as it is. President Obama is promoting the advancement of Muslims in this country. Take for example the denied mission of NASA, to bring more Muslims into the Agency and show their credits and strengths.

If you are at War with a belief, which few will admit, you make it difficult for them to promote their ideas here. I am sorry, we don't need to make the United States
a nice place for these people to be. Even today, with our President's grand plans to pull out of Iraq, those people are showing what the future will be there. They are already blowing each other up. Wait till we really are out, Civil War and the rebirth of an Islamic Militant State. How do you say another IRAN.

The scattering of Mosques around this country reminds me of a statement by Premier Kruchiev, " We will bury you from within ".

Obama Battle in, ( I Love this Stuff !)

Spending Spree In Spain - And Response (4)
posted August 9, 2010

Another 131,000 people lost jobs in July. The recovery has stalled and the nation is in deep debt. The recovery would probably be turning around and jobs being created if the administration had chosen another path other than government spending. But this regime is so out of touch with the nation, its problems, and any good solutions.

A good example of being out of touch is the glitzy, posh, expensive vacation Michelle Obama is taking in Spain. The luxury resort in Costa del Sol has turned over about 50 rooms for the Queen of America. She took 40 of her closest friends with her on this extended spending spree.

The American people paid for the transportation of Queen Michelle’s entourage, are footing the bill for security and who knows what else. So, instead of vacationing here and spending all that money on American businesses and tipping American workers, we are benefiting Spain. I guess this is the Obamas’ idea of Spanish stimulus checks.

Some are calling this insensitive, but I say it is par for the course with this administration. Since coming into the White House this family has treated the presidency just like Tony Heywood treated his job with BP - as a privileged CEO.

So as the Queen relaxes from all her hard work fighting obesity she probably giggles when she hears that more people are on food stamps than ever before by saying if they are hungry, then let them eat cake.

Why am I paying my taxes to get this kind of leadership or the lack thereof?

Johnny Franks

I really hate to burst Johnny Franks's bubble with the truth, but here goes:

According to a website, the trip consisted of Mrs. Obama, two other women and four children. It specifically states, "not 40 as has been reported by some news outlets." It also states that she was asked by one of the women to join them on the trip, she is paying for her own spending, and the friends flew commercially, not on a government plane.

Much of the criticism comes from the fact that any president or first lady must, whether at home or abroad, follow Secret Service protocols. Since the assassination of President Kennedy after his override of Secret Service protocols, presidents no longer have that option. That means that they must fly in a government plane (reimbursing the taxpayers for the cost of a first-class ticket) and have full Secret Service protection.

High-end resorts are generally more secluded and thus, have better security, so that's why they use those. And, obviously, no one expects the Secret Service agents to work for free or pay for their own food, so they are provided rooms and a per diem. They would be paid the same, regardless of where the vacation is.

The same rules applied to Reagan and both Bushes. It is nice to know that the hateful are bipartisan and consistent; I remember when Nancy Reagan was being bashed as "Queen Nancy."

You might also learn that President Obama has taken fewer vacation days than any of his recent predecessors. Or to learn that former Vice President Cheney requested an extension of Secret Service protection when it expired, which was granted.

Check your facts, double-check your sources (don't believe everything you read in an email).

Great post Kim. I was just about to submit the same “facts” after reading Mr. Franks’ posting. I could not have stated it better. It still amazes me that President Obama’s critics continue to blast him with clearly biased and untrue attacks. So now I guess it’s not OK, in their opinion, for Mrs. Obama to take a vacation? I suppose when all of the previous First Ladies traveled they all went to Gatlinburg, flew commercial and took a pocket knife for protection.

No matter what fact we critics of the Obama's provide we will be attacked in mass by the Kool-Aid Shooters.

Johnny Franks recently wrote a fair and balanced account of the Queen's jaunt to Spain to console her oby-gyn whose father recently passed. I had an opinion piece in my mind but after Johnny submitted his, I was so pleased I just let his ride.

Someone, maybe the Pope, needs to compile their total excursions, on your dime. But even then, he would be attacked. These people from Barack, Michelle, the Kids, Michelle's Momma, and whoever else has moved in, seem to be pinching themselves in disbelief that they have hit the jackpot. I mean wow, she doesn't even have to put on her on make up. Her staff's annual salary is in excess of $1.3 million.

George W. refused to play golf while we are at war, as to not project an image that he was not fully engaged. I guess BHO is so brilliant he can play basketball with his celebrity friends and still manage the war, our dying economy, the $13 trillion deficit and ObamaCare. He is so amazing the rest of us just stand in awe.

No not really...we are getting the shaft and some of you will never know it or even admit that it is happening.

May God please watch over our country while it is being destroyed from within by Socialists.

November is coming - 85 days to go. Mark your calendars.

In response to Mr. Thurmer – First, a simple internet search would have shown you that it is a lie to say that President Bush didn’t play golf after pledging not to play during the Iraq war. You can find the proof here - If you have proof showing otherwise, please let us all know.

Second, did you criticize Mr. Bush for mountain biking during the war as you criticized President Obama for playing basketball?

Third, all First Ladies have staffs. Did you look up how much Mrs. Bush staff cost? Was it more or less than $1.3 million a year? Did you criticize Mrs. Reagan for how much she spent to change the china pattern in the White House? Or are you just looking grasping for any reason to criticize and administration whose policies you don’t support.

With all the problems facing our country, you’re concerned about golf, mountain biking, and the First Lady’s staff? Really?

Wow !, I have so much to talk about..It's all good !

If you remember, I was miserable, Period. Everything simply sucked. Confused and dazed, did not remember what I had for dinner before. I guess you get the picture.

I go to Nashville, To Vanderbilt Medical Center's Multiple Sclerosis Clinic. I had the attitude this was my last chance. I had been to Neuro's, some never even laid a hand on me the first time they ever saw me. Looking back, MS patients are a cash cow. Think about it, from a Dr's stanpoint you come in every 60-90 days and get a pat on the back, refills for whatever Tranquilizers you're on and thats it.

Not at Nashville. They listened. They Listened to Deanna describe me when I appeared to have drunk a 12 Pack. After much consideration, Dr. Moses (yeah, that's his name Thank God whips out his script pad and writes me Tegretol. Tegretol is an old Epileptic Med. He said he thought this might stop my MS brain from going to these cocktail parties I was not invited to.

For two weeks, last Tuesday (knock on wood) I have not had a single problem, period.
Praise God ! Everyone says I look differently, really. My eyes feel wide open.

Now for the second part of this change in me. A few months ago i decided I had enough. You have heard the song, "Jesus take the wheel", that was how I felt. I have fought MS for 20 years. I thouht you could be a Christian and not go to Church. We had looked over the years, wasn't really feeling right. David Clemons, a dear friend of mine and fellow Lodge member kept telling me to come to his church. Well. we knew the time had come. Deanna and I went to Sawyer's Missionary Baptist Church and found our home. A small little white church in the country,a wonderful Pastor named larry Miller. Great members, never a stranger, In fact, Deanna and I joined the church last Sunday. Life is different now. God sent me to Vanderbilt and co-ordinated this entire turnaround.

Life is wonderful. MS has met it's mach, God is healing me and beleive me, I know it..

Everyone please pray for Deanna and I, we have finally found the path.

Praise God in the highest and may each reader of this be touched by his power, Mitch
