Good morning guys! What’s up? Been hangin out with a “younger crowd” over the holidays, thus, the “what’s up?” I’d be willing to bet the last gatherin I was at there wasn’t a single person there over 50??
Seems I’m becoming “the old man” at more and more of these gatherins! May have “winter” settin in on my head, but I’ll be derned if I ain’t STILL got some “spring” in my rear-end!” It’s all in your attitude, course that Ensure stuff don’t hurt either! LOL!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and in doin so, I hope you remembered the REAL reason for this…our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I was sittin here this morning, checkin out the headlines. Pretty depressing anymore, wouldn’t you say?
Let’s take a gander at just a few…
A School in Texas Using Tracking Devices to Insure Students Staying On Campus…
Maybe it’s just me, but don’t you all find this very…unusual? How bout just plain offensive? What gives anyone the right to have access to your child’s whereabouts through…surveillance?
Ya reckon this might possibly be…un-Constitutional?
Oh, sorry, I forgot, our Founding Father’s that laid out the moral principles that are the backbone of making our Country so great in the past, and so appealing to all the masses that have immigrated here through the years, are in actuality…old, rich, white men thoughts.
With this being the case…who needs the Constitution, right?
Those dern Progressives, how in the world have we gotten along without them all these years?
Could this maybe be one more indoctrination of our youth that the Progressives see as an opportunity to instill the “idea” into our youth that, you know what…what DOES it hurt that THEY know EVERYTHING about us? Jus sayin…
Listen up guys…UNTIL, we take back our educational system…nothing is going to change.
Until WE decide that our children and grandchildren are going to once more receive an education (imagine that), our liberties and freedoms as we know them will simply continue to disappear!
I’m speaking craziness you say? Well, okay, I’ve been labeled MUCH WORSE than that before. Sadly, many times for some pretty good reasons too! LOL!
I know a lady who’s become a dear friend, by accident, which by the way at times ARE the best kind, who lives on the “Far-left coast.”
Our first contact she expressed she had a lot of the same political views that I have.
My first thought…”poor thing, living in California, and having many of the same conservative views as I?
Now there’s a good example of some poor child that just HAD to have been dropped on her head while still a youth.”
Yet, after speakin with her, and her assuring me that this wasn’t the case, but in reality she HAD BEEN a liberal during her youth, I stopped feelin sorry for her, and just HAD to hear the reason for her political “change of heart.”
It was quite simple…once she went out after college, got a job (oh, the mere thought of work is so, so, “old-fashioned” anymore, huh?), she realized after looking at what “Uncle Sam” was taking out of her hard-earned paycheck… “Good night, that’s A LOT!”
Our youth are easily influenced, people. Don’t you remember growing up? We were too, at least I know I was.
“Miss Warner,” my old high school French teacher, yeah, I took French (not to learn the dern language, but mainly to spend an hour out of the day checkin out Miss Warner! LOL) heavily influenced me.
That woman could have told me to “pass a football,” and I’d have only asked for…time enough to “swaller the dern thing!”
Yep, lookin back now, I was pretty easily influenced!
Seriously though, we have to start teaching our own youth that nothing is owed you. Not a free education, although I feel this perfectly fine if awarded to a youth, ANY youth, black, white, brown, or yellow, who excels in their studies.
Affirmative Action, No Child Left Behind, and all the other “political think-tank programs” that are advocated today by our elected leaders…have simply got to go!
Then, the amazing thing to me, is still the fact that we have people here in our Country, actually MASSES of people today in our Country, who think these same political leaders they vote for, election after election, actually give one hoot in hell about them???
Why not, instead of allowing our school systems to dumb down our children, indoctrinate our children to the Progressive mindset, and create even further, the mentality of…gimmee, gimmee, gimmee, simply start once again…to give our children what they’ve gone to school for in the first place. Like maybe say…an education?
We don’t have to, and SHOULD NOT, lower our educational standards to fit into the “Oh look, we had a 90% graduation rate last year. Isn’t life grand?”
Well, pardon me folks, but I don’t consider our seniors graduating high school with a 5th grade reading level as…being “very grand” at all??
Let’s take a look at another “piece of news” that simply enforces my belief on this matter.
Obama Re-elected by an Illiterate Society…
Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.
That’s a real eye-opener, huh? Not the statement itself, but actually WHO made the statement!
It goes on to say…
President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don’t they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.
I’ll just add to this that our media plays a major, major part of “our ignorance” today as Americans as well!
Well, we’ve all seen the reports of this, huh?
People brawling, shoplifting, mass chaos, even deaths??? What kind of society are we living in today??
Recession in 2013?…
Good night people, you cannot continue to eliminate jobs in our Country, spend money as if it grows on trees, although when you have the ability to print money, maybe it really does grow on trees, huh?
Over 16 trillion in debt, and growing daily mind you, with the TRUE jobless rate in the US being 16-20%, adding more and more Americans to the “Nanny State” teet.
How could you possibly NOT have thoughts of recession on your mind, especially when your leader states… “We’ll SPEND our way out of debt!”
Good sound economic logic there, wouldn’t you think?
Oh, now I get it! Just see above statement on an illiterate society.
I see…you see?
Then, in our last look at some headlines, our good friend, Sandra, sent me a link. Perfectly expresses today’s sentiments of our Progressive society!
Jamie Foxx: ‘Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama’
Don’t believe me…Google it. It’s there….
His actual statement goes like this…
JAMIE FOXX: First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.

Umm…umm, people. Kinda scary stuff, that.
Day of reckoning coming to Mr. Foxx, not unlike any of the rest of us, although I feel much more secure in MY OWN beliefs than putting any faith into Mr. Foxx’s statement!
Sure hope he has a change of attitude prior to his meeting our “True” Lord and Savior!
In closing today why not think about the song verse, “America, America, GOD shed HIS grace on thee!” Pretty appropriate, don’t you agree?
Don’t kid yourself though, our liberal counterparts understand fully how much a “thorn in the side” our religious beliefs and freedoms are in regards to their Progressive agenda, and it’s because of this they attack our religious freedoms so vehemently!
“THE WORD,” speaks quite clearly of false prophets and false prophesies, and in today’s world, we hear of each quite frequently.
Discrediting our Christian values is literally a MUST DO in order for their political agenda to continue. As long as we have religious freedom…we have FAITH!
NO FAITH, equates simply into…NO FREEDOM.
The choice is our own…
As for me, I’ll take Faith and Freedom, hands down…EVERY TIME!
Sandra also sent me this, this morning as well. It too is very appropriate in today’s message…
• You shall have no other gods before ME.
• You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who LOVE Me, and keep My commandments.
You guys have a great day, and God Bless! Also, how bout keeping a smile on your face, and one in your heart! Deb would love it!
Jamie Foxx ain’t worth the breath it takes to say his name… Nuff said there.
Now, about teaching our children… I got my grandson when he was 11 years old. He was a good kid but nobody had ever taken the time to teach him how to be a man. I only gave him four rules:
1. Nobody is responsible for what you do but you…
2. Who you are, what you are and your situation in this world is the sum total of all the decisions you have made up until this exact minute.
3. Life ain’t fair…
4. If you don’t like the above rules refer back to rule #3…
Additional rule. Pawpaw loves you son and wants nothing but the best for you all of your life. But YOU have to work to make that happen. I can’t do that for you.
Dub, I couldn’t agree more. As usual, you have hit the nail right on the head. Been thinking about ya, and praying things are going okay for you. Ya’all let us know when you want to take a vacation out Kentucky way! Hugs!!
Hey old boy,
Your comments sound like something I would have written! Seems to me you have a good idea what is really going on. Obama won for a second term. I was sure he would. But he didn’t really win. He was chosen. The real controllers don’t generally like to change the crew in mid stream and Barry is their man. I moved from my family home in 2009 in Toronto after watching the financial melt down and listening to him during the first election. things he said and didn’t say and especially who he was associated with and I started telling people in late 2008 that I believed he was going to deliberately destroy the U.S. to seize total control. I haven’t changed my mind. The only thing I’ve learned since is that this is much bigger than him. Even though I live in Canada this is a huge deal for me. It has been said that when the U.S. sneezes Canada gets a cold. We are way beyond that. We are looking at the plague! And if they succeed in getting the guns from American citizens it really is fait accompli.
The one comfort I harbour is I know those involved in this and especially those orchestrating the death of America and world government are already judged!!
You have an absolutely beautiful ranch there. I could only dream to live in such a place. However, Joel Skousen in his book ‘Strategic Location’ says Florida is a terrible location in a SHTF scenario. Ever think about that?
As always, my best wishes for you old boy.
