Our Lives Are In Nine Hands

June 26, 2008

As these next few months get ugly with the nastiness that politicking entails, we need to remember one important fact:  who is going to nominate the Supreme Court Justices that align with your morals?!  As we see debates start in late summer between Barack Hussein Obama and John McCain, we will see their stance on issues such as abortion, economy, nuclear energy etc.  We will want to side with one or the other but in essence, it’s not actually the president who will have all the power…it’s the Supreme Court Justices.  Thank God Bush got in Alito and Roberts during his terms.  Case in point is today’s landmark hearing for the ban on guns in D.C.  That is our right to bear arms and our forefathers found it important enough to make it our 2nd amendment.  In an appalling 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court Justices found the ban on bearing arms unconstitutional.  Of course the appalling part is that 4 of the justices would think to deny us our right.  If we can get John McCain in office, you better believe that within four years, there will be at least one supreme court justice opening and if we can get one more judge in who has conservative values (you know like not killing babies who may be an inconvenience or considering marriage as between a woman and a man etc.) then we may be well on a path to restoring our value system in this wonderful country.  And I do mean wonderful country.  We live in an awesome, enduring, opportunistic and free land where people will take the chance of death to just get over here.  But we have been backsliding in morality 101.  The very thought of having to define marriage seems preponderous (not to mention what our brilliant forefathers would think of that issue), abortion, suing to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance because of one ignorant father who was offended his little girl had to recite “under God”.  The whole country could have suffered because of this one man.  You get my drift.  Billy Graham once said, “if God doesn’t judge America, he owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorah.”  This speaks volumes as to the state of our nation.  But it is never too late.  Pray for our leaders, pray for our communities and pray for our children for they will be our future leaders. 

Hey Westpoint…Got God???

June 26, 2008

Today, the ACLU has filed a lawsuit to remove God from the infamous Westpoint Military Academy in New York.  I have absoluely zero respect for the ACLU as it is.  But now, to remove God from the most notorious military academy in our country?  Thomas Jefferson must be rolling like a rotisserie in his grave as he is the one who established West Point in 1802.  This act alone would have given Thomas Jefferson cause to start a revolution.  These cadets who will be our future soldiers protecting our rights and our freedoms have been proven to rely on their faith (God being the center of that faith) when engaged in battle or even less severe circumstances while on duty.  The very thought of “an independent party” trying to come in and sabotoge chapel and meal prayer should be causing an uproar in our nation.  The sad part is, you probably won’t hear too much about this on the news.  But the bloggers have a moral obligation to get the word out.  Write your congressmen, the attorneys etc. and demand that God who was the very essence this country was founded on take His rightful place in our military academies. 

Words To Live By

December 13, 2007

I’ll make this short and sweet.  It is self explanatory so no need for a lengthy blog post here.  “LET YOUR YES BE YES AND YOUR NO BE NO.”  If everyone stuck to this BASIC rule of thumb, the world would be a much happier place.  These are words I definitely live by but that I find most people I come across to be lacking of.  And to be honest, it quite dumbfounds me.  It seems it would be common sense and natural human behavior to live by these words, but I guess it is not.  So any of you youngsters out there looking for a life lesson (yeah right) let me say that the words you speak and the spirit you present is how you will be perceived.  This can be an awesome tool if used with tact, class, and authenticity.  But when you speak out of both sides of your mouth, you lead an example of indecisiveness and weakness!  That’s what Jo Jo says…
