"The Scorpion and the Frog"

"It was my job to be a good steward over what God had provided for us and I would be remiss in my duty just to hand it over, with no questions asked."

There is some talk of charity during the coming national difficulties.  Most of the talk centers around the question of "should I be charitable?"  Each individual must come to his or her own conclusion in this matter and there are many factors to be taken into consideration.

The linked article addresses one important aspect of charity whether in "good times" or in SHTF conditions. The topic and title of the piece is "Accountability in Charity".

Read it here.

The family exampled in the article are not untypical of vast numbers today - whether young or old. I could go on but perhaps should reserve my thoughts on the topic for a separate post.

Nothing in this life is easy - not even the act of being charitable is simple anymore

On Religious Freedom

The arrogance of the petty tyrant sitting in our White House is reaching new depths.  His true colors are shining through as well.  Although perhaps less widely known, communism is marked not only by it's totalitarianism but also it's rejection of and hatred for anything religious.  His Petulance is striking that chord now in our military.

Read it here.

Note: while I'm not Catholic, I will stand with and for the right of the Catholic to exercise his faith as his conscience dictates.  This is so of the Jew, Mormon, Buddhist, etc.  It's my contention that he is trying to stifle the Catholics because they likely represent the largest single religious group in the military.

What does he tell his children when they see things like this?  How does he justify his actions and/or those of his subordinates?  Does he say something like, "They need punished so we take something away from them much like losing one's iPod or cell privileges."?  He should be careful something like this doesn't backfire on him in some way.......

My mind is consumed today with the events of this weekend - particularly Sunday's Million Vet March on D.C.  This is not a good thing since today is this week's "Monday" and I was gone 3 1/2 days before.  On the other hand, it is needful that I consider not just the past weekend but the near future as well.  I was proud - more than usual - to be an American, living in America this weekend. 

November 1, 2013 could see a first in American History: the nationwide shutdown of SNAP/EBT/Food Stamp cards.  Let that thought sink in........  a nation full of people with their hands out only to bring them back empty. 

But then who could have conceived that the (alleged) Commander-in-Chief would slap the collective face of "his own troops" (and that of those NOT his at this point) by closing NATIONAL monuments which were and are designed to HONOR both.  This just pisses me off.  His contempt and disregard for those who have or are actively demonstrating their commitment to this nation is glaringly apparent. Benghazi.  He cares nothing for those who have gone the distance.  He's dancing on the graves of the fallen.  He despises the very men and women who have preserved the nation he's been handed and is hell-bent on ruining. 

Know this, if you've been waivering on the issue, there is no civility on the part of the .gov any longer.  The mask is gone.  Illegally detaining foreign nationals in a motel for 2 days without so much as an apology for the sake of one's political stand???  WHO DOES THAT !!??  And what of the American tourists!!??  By the way, as we were moving from the Lincoln Memorial to the Spite House, I saw a small group of Asian men, obviously not Asian-Americans, and I apologized to them and those of their nation who may have been detained.  Americans have acted badly and we should be ashamed of it.  They, as well as all the others from other countries deserve better treatment than to be caught up in such childish antics.  I'm dumbfounded at such barbaric nonsense.  On the other hand, his foreign policy is terribly inadequate so what he had the Park Service do shouldn't be surprising. 

An arrogant, smug, self-absorbed, petty, wannabe despot does that.  And then dispatches a threat to shut off SNAP unless the GOP concedes??  When this concession occurs, America is lost.  Her only hope will be to go in a direction no one but the petty despot and his goons seem to be pushing.  I want no fight.  As some may have noted having met me, I'm too old for that crap.  But if you insist, I'll be singing one of Kenny Roger's songs: "Let's Go Out In A Blaze of Glory..."  You will have your wish. 

I am of the opinion that with our rediscovered strength that we - the fed up, agitated, unwilling to tolerate anymore affronts Americans - go on the offensive.  If there are other places where Barry-cades obstruct, they should be summarily removed.  We must not lose the momentum of our moment.  What took place Sunday has American Spirit painted all over it.  There must be something that we can grab on to and shake it till it either surrenders or dies.  Then move on to the next until a trend is set and the ball begins to roll on it's own.

Our grandkids asked where we went that they couldn't go.  We responded by telling them that we went to fix some things that bad men had done.  Pictures will be shown to them in the coming days from the various websites displaying the Barry-cade Removal Act.  My hope is that they "get it" as they mature.  When we've passed from this scene, I hope they can look back and say, "our Grandmother and Grandfather were there that day.  They helped get things started back in the right direction.  We have what we have because they were willing to act against bad men doing bad things."

For the love of God and what He's blessed us with, go out, find something evil, and make it right. 

"The S**T's About To Get Real"

My thanks to "Bad Boys II" for the title of this post.

Now on to important issues - N.B.

Taking away the mother of all Sacred Cow Entitlements to win political points is either cajones or it's monumental stupid. You choose.

If your gear isn't ready, make it so, #1 because they gave us the date. But to be on the "safe side"(?? is there such a thing now ??), be ready a day or son in advance.

My personal mantra: Pray for the best while prepping for the worst.

III to III and so it will be.

The "Shutdown" Was Shutdown

Today, October 13, 2013 marks a day in American History.  The reason is simple: Americans stood up to the leviathan ,gov and shutdown the shutdown of our war Veterans Memorials.

"Barry-cades" were removed from obstructing viewers a closer look at the various Memorials to our heros.  Those from in front of the Lincoln Memorial were then carried to and deposited in front of the White House affectionately adorned with a hand-written note: "RETURN TO SENDER".

The DC SWAT, mounted police(yes, on horseback), an armored vehicle and more police were dispatched to the scene of the crime.  Shouting and general ill will was exchanged but then THEY LEFT.   The .gov personal security thugs backed off.  No arrests, no pepper spray, no blood(this time), no wildly-swung batons.

Americans were given their first taste of real victory since the shameful entering and retreat from Viet Nam.

IF a few hundred individuals with the resolve to face whatever comes can cause the death squads to reconsider their actions and position, imagine what a nation full of Patriots could do to right the direction of this country.

Most think that 17% of our several-times that over-bloated .gov system is enough to cause disaster. It isn't. What this alleged "shutdown" is about is a tug-of-war of sorts between those who still want to make We, The People THINK they're still representing us and the power/greed drunken socialists who no longer give a rats tail about the mask.  This also about their jobs in the next election cycle: who keeps their seat with subsequent bribes and graft payments and who has to turn to actually doing a little more work for it on the outside of the Beltway.

With my prelude, read this article.  Hopefully you'll see through the useless, empty rhetpric of everyone involved in the charade.  The UNhealthcare edict is not even at stake.  It is how quickly it is shoved down
our throats.

America, it's past time we took a stand.  I can't believe that God is not angry over how we've allowed things to sour in this once great land.  What He gives to anyone, He expects them to do their part in maintaining, vis. Adam and Eve in keeping the Garden.  We've ailed and allowed Evil to overrun us.

UPDATE - Has The Ante Been Upped..??

It now seems that there was some misquoting, misinformation and so on. The reported blockade of the I495 Beltway around DC will not happen. But the whole idea does give us a reason to consider the effects of such a move and the fallout from it.

Be aware.  Be smart.  Be ready.

Our plans are still a go.

Post from another blog:

Read it... think it through... respond as your conscience dictates. I'm heading to the seat of .gov power for this weekend.

Will You Stand

Read the article, mull it over then act. Time is short in and for this country. The kenyan is making every effort at dividing this nation - OUR Nation. He's dumped buckets of his urine on those of us who have provided him a nation to ruin then said "screw you" without even pretending it's rain. It's time to stand... take the time off work... call in sick... lose the days pay but think of it rather as an investment in your future - if you're to have one.

Lose - Lose

Is this really what the person currently sitting in our White House wants? Can the rest of 535 elected and/or appointed people actually want such things to happen? Such accounts are occuring daily and have been since October 1. Does this errant despot intend to so provoke the American People as to expect us to somehow move against those we elected with the concentration of protestors equal to or even greater than that of the first 9/12 event in DC? If we should, he would force the continuation of his own sanctions and consequently, the increased ire of America on the whole. Or maybe his bent is to push until the odds of any compromise is well past any recovery. Would he then watch and blame the Republicans for our National default? If that happens, more than his presidency would be ended. America as we see it today would be no more. Is this what he wants - really? Who would fund his precious ObamaUNhealthcare? How would his faithful mutts maintain their guard over public monuments? How long will they go on the promise of betters days aheaad seeing that things have been run into the ground in such order? We're past being fed up but he just doesn't seem to get it. Or maybe he does and this is his private, perverse delight. And the delight of those who jerk his strings. These kinds of strings need to be severed - this nation can't take much more of the pulling. The Million Vet March on DC October 13, 2013 could well be a turning point in American History. If it goes badly, it could well be a lose - lose situation. Made God be our Strength

The Pastor Problem

It's a shame that those who should "hear" these words don't have an ear therewith to hear. Nevertheless, herein I stand:

The Rapture Problem

Unfortunately, I know men such as are described in Pastor Baldwin's latest 2 related articles. 

America could and very well WOULD burn with patriotic flames once again IF our pastors would simply wake up. 

May God help those who have and stir those who haven't.
