Say No to Arnold S. as President!!


U.S. Constitution -- Candidates, Office of U.S. President

Any Americans, particularly those in Christ Jesus, are not deceived by so many deceptive voices. I believe it is atrocious that any American today would be gullible enough to fall for plans to amend the U.S. Constitution to either do away with the electoral college or to permit anybody to run for the highest office in this land (i.e., President) who is not native born and, in some cases, who may not even be a naturalized citizen. That could be the next natural progression towards weakening the constitution.

Moreover, any attempts made to have any man or woman to remain in office as President for an additional third term could lead to a dictatorship. What would there be to stop them from amending the constitution further to allow themselves to remain for as long as they live in spite of the objections of the people? Only unpatriotic, ignorant people (in the truest sense of the word) could even entertain the thoughts of any such amendments as being viable.

Right now, we must begin recommending everything we can to combat such ignorance. It starts with education about our history (good, bad, and ugly) and about how we were able to overcome all such foolishness to this day. Anybody who relishes such changes to the constitution just might get their wish. Then they would know what true lamentations is all about.

I believe this website* illustrates a vivid example of the many attempts to "legitimately" rearrange the social, financial, and political structure of our nation. We have a whole lot of self-avowed, publicly decreed communists and socialists ** who are teaching in our colleges and universities *** and many are, also, making inroads in the underpinings of this nation via the entertainment field. Every such professor, politician, religious leader, and entertainer ought to be identified and routed. They have abused their freedom of speech and our children's minds have been poisoned long enough.

Get ready!
I heard announced on the tv news this morning that a newly organized group called, "Amend It,"**** has begun making plans to advertise on tv to amend the U.S. Constitution to allow Arnold S., in California, the chance to run for the office of President of the U.S. Republican or not --- we must not allow that to happen. I, personally, am not all that sure Arnold is Republican much less American! His celebrity ought not be allowed to overrule the nation's constitution. I do not believe Americans are going to fall for this farst any more than they did for the Kerry-Edwards team during the 2004 election season! As it is, my spirit tells me that "little" Arnold already believes he is larger than life and has more authority than the President right now. The Republicans who express support for such an amendment to help Arnold need to hear from their constituents. And, this nation's people must soundly defeat every effort they come up with to make it happen against our will.

Now is the time to speak up against it! Begin to write letters, make phone calls, sign petitions to block and stop that movement to change the U.S. Constitution, as outlined above.

U. S. Constitution -- Amendment to Protect Marriage
(That link leads to the new Faith and Values Coalition)

I do support the nation's efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect the definition and sanctity of marriage as being the union between one man and one woman. The homosexuals have made it crucial to pass such an amendment into law because of their defiance demonstrated earlier this year, especially, when quite a few courthouse clerks and small town mayors and leaders deliberately and illegally distributed marriage licenses to men and men and women and women. That must not be allowed to happen again. In addition, "civil unions" must also be soundly defeated across this nation, as against the Godly principles of all we hold dear to having a just and orderly society.

Education --

What does it mean to say we want "America For Americans?"
Can you say assimilate?! Learn what it means.

Prayer for V.P. Cheney & Family!

UPDATE! (see below)
Thanks to God for His keeping power to bring V.P. Cheney through one more time. Amen!

By now, most of you may have heard about V.P. Cheney going to the hospital today. Our prayer chains are continuing on his behalf and for his family. We are praying for his peace, protection, comfort, and healing.

We praise God for His answers to our prayers to lift V.P. Cheney by His (God's) power and with His (God's) strength. Grant peace, Lord, in Jesus's name. Amen!

Who Killed Yassar Arafat?

Isn't it just like man - and woman to look to the natural before looking toward the Spiritual?

There have been so many theories spun around what took Arafat's life. After all, you must remember he was 75! Arafat had a whole lot of enemies. Yes, he also had a whole lot of followers who actually loved him. And there have been just as many people who did not follow Arafat who wondered why he was lovable.

The man was responsible for taking an aarid land in a faraway desert and keeping millions of people content to live there amidst the relatively brand new settlement of Jews who landed in 1948. Well, actually 1948 was not the first time Jews landed anywhere. Isn't that right?

As God's chosen people, they get to go wherever God has driven them. What's more, we, as Christians and grafted-in believers of the same true and living God, ought to know by now that we do not just start out for some place without first having a mapped out destination that was chosen by God Almighty Himself.

Who Killed Yassar Arafat?

He was responsible for the murder of so many innocent people during his lifetime. He was a terrorist who is now touted as being a martyr even though he died in a nice clean hospital bed in Paris, France, after being transported there from his Palestinian hovel-rubble during his last weeks. So, a lot of people want to know what killed him? The diagnosis remains elusive and unannounced. However, there has been much speculation as to the cause from poison to AIDS - but no proof has been forthcoming. Now Arafat is dead and buried (1929-2004). What are we to say to these things? God bless his soul? I do not think so. Did Arafat cry out to God before he lost conciousness for the last time for God to forgive him and to save him? I have not heard that! Have you? Did God hear Arafat's repentance and nobody else heard? That remains between Arafat and our God.

Indeed, after all is said and done, I believe we can look to our God for the answer. The Holy Bible tells us that God puts up rulers and God takes them down. Did you not know that? Did you not believe that?

Start meditating on the things of God. Stop contemplating about the minds of men.

Have you yet to recognize that our God is real? God is alive. God IS! But just in case all of mankind all over the world has not known it to this day, then let the word continue to go forth that God is still God and they are not nor will they ever be God.

Our God has heard our many heartfelt cries to have mercy on this nation. Can we forget Him now that He has done it? Can we doubt that our God has truly done it by allowing this nation to go on under the leadership of a man who seeks His face, President G. W. Bush (#43)? What a sobering thought, as we continue to join in prayer that the people will turn to the true and living God to know Him in the pardon of their sin in Jesus's name! Amen.

Spiritual Woman Rejected Comments

I addressed this message to the Spiritual Woman . She rejected it.

"We live and move and have our being in Him." "God is Spirit and they that worship must worship (God) in Spirit and in (God's) truth." Christians "must be born again" from God in order to understand the message of God. For, His ways are far above those of any man, woman, boy or girl. Jesus *is* the Son of God who *is* God who *is* the Holy Spirit, all together the blessed Trinity. To reject any part of that message is to turn your back on the Christian gospel of Jesus Christ. And it also reflects that your walk has yet to become mature in Christ, which is a process and takes your life long in Him.

Meanwhile, please be careful to understand that it is God Himself alone who chooses His beloved vessels to preach, teach, minister, keep watch, shepherd His own. This is important, because whenever we do it God's way, we must first hear His voice. And His words and ways are not our own. When we do it our (own) way, then we are apt to lead so many people astray and away from the true and living God. I am glad to know you are a self-confessed "Spiritual Woman." I trust you are aware, also, that --in the Supernatural Realm -- that spiritual realm includes the demonic as well as heavenly spirits. Discerning people know the difference.

I pray that your spirit will take time to listen and hear and not reject out of hand what the spirit does not bear witness to. I am praying for God Himself to reveal the truth of the matter and that you will hear what He has to say. Please do not be like those who are "ever learning but never coming to a knowledge of (God's) truth." God bless you and all who draw near to keep watch to see what the Spirit has to say to the church.

Note: It concerns me a great deal when I come across so many Christians online who have a zeal for God but have not yet learned that God alone really does call His own. What's more, they know they could not get away with the lack of accountability in their home churches that they try on the internet. But, every God's preacher knows that when God calls, He tells that person what his call on their life is. Not only that, But God Himself also prepares that person to step into His (God's) call on their life when God says they are ready. Too many Christians want to jump ahead of God. And when they are called on it, their lack of spiritual maturity causes them to take offense without testing the spirit. Ours is not to offend; but, when so moved by the Holy Spirit, to step in the gap lest so many believers would go off course and not know it. Discern. ---/me

Why Mourn For Sen. Kerry and DEMS?

I understand. I am certain I would have felt the same way, if Kerry had won the election. However, I know Kerry and the Democrats were the deceivers.

Kerry and the DEMS divided this country with fear tactics not the Republicans. They misread the nature and character of Americans, as a whole. It was that we were seeking/praying for a change in what the DEMS were doing. The majority spoke and bore that out.

The gays are not being discriminated against. They misused a legitimate term to highjack a valid claim for civil rights. If they are either black, white, red, or yellow, and male or female, and American and believe they have been unjustly treated, then they already have legal protection. But, what the gays have done was to deliberately mislead this nation into granting them "special rights" over and above what is due to all those who obey and uphold the law. No homosexuals ever had a "right" to misuse their minds and bodies to "love" same sex people. But they deceived and blackmailed the public into believing they had the right by calling them "homophobic, haters, discriminators," and any other false names that they chose."

Take heart. You will see in the days to come that this nation will turn people back to God's ways. And you will be pleasantly surprised at how much more peace you will experience in every area of your life -- even in times of trouble. Although you may not understand now; I will pray your peace and best wishes now and in the days to come, filled with all of God's merciful blessings, love, forgiveness, and salvation.

Note: I am convinced that DEMS love to suffer and do not want relief. I left this message (above) posted at -- "Nature Girls Guide, Spontaneous Me," but she deleted the post I left at her site. I guess she wasn't ready to know the truth, but at least I told her.

God Broke Kerry's Heart!

Before the whole watching world, we saw as God broke Sen. Kerry's heart. And that is the very best thing that could have happened to him, if he recognizes it.

I saw Kerry's heart break and he was broken as he delivered his concession speech, almost to the point of tears. Now God has removed his heart of stone and replaced it with a heart of flesh. God humbled the man -- brought him low so he had nothing left to do but to look up. And I believe all of those days he spent in the churches across this land were not in vain. "God's ways are not our ways. Nor are His thoughts our thoughts." But God does reveal His mind to whom He wills. A new breeze is blowing among us and it is sooooo sweet! Keep on reading the Word to know it and "be the word," before people who will not pick it up and read it. Did that message annoy somebody? Good! That means they heard.

Now, God told me. I told you. And that's all.

Praying and praising God as I go.

Hail to the Commander in Chief

Up all night watching the election returns.
And thank God it was worth it!

Let's all unite behind this Godly man and restore
Christian values, morals, and truths
to this great land of liberty.
For the Lord He is God.

Taking the Vote to The River !

How do you deal with people who spit in your face, kick you on both cheeks, turn you around, stab you in your back, and then turn around and blame you for backing into their knife? Vote the DEMS out, that's how!

If JFKerry wants to be the next JFK? O well? But, I am so glad God knows exactly what He is doing.

As for me? I've got so much peace like a River. And once President Bush is re-elected, I know that River will have a lot less peace, because I'm staking a claim to that part, too. Hallelujah to Victory in Christ Jesus. For we know that, "Whether He (our God) will or whether He won't, we still will not bow down to you, O King (kerry/dems)." And, what's more, "Nevertheless, whether He will or whether He won't, we know that our God is able!"

God's continued peace and blessings.

Polls Skewed! Remember Jesse!

At this late hour, it appears the news media are stepping up their every attempt to skew the results of the election. Polls go up and down for one candidate or the other. Yet, there is good news for Republicans and the President. However, we hear the numbers highlighted *for* Kerry.

We are all are in a fight for electoral votes. The President does lead in those overall numbers. Americans who are listening to the cable news might get the idea there is no need to go vote (I pray that is not the case). The Republicans need to present a stronger and more confident voice in the nation. We have God and truth on our side whether any wants to believe it or not. But, Kerry has yet to articulate an original position or plan for this country, beyond making the case that he will say or do anything to get elected. And, in fact, a review of his record proves time and again how Kerry has not told the truth about many issues that matter to the nation's general health and welfare.

Remember Minnesota and Jesse!

I recall that, when Jesse Ventura was running for Governor of Minnesota, the wrestler was laughed to shame. The news media were all over him. He was presented as a clown but the media couldn't resist giving him a whole lot of publicity. Guess what?! Jesse V. won and didn't know what to do. He didn't even want the job. He made all kinds of promises to the people -- until he got into office. Then he started making backtracks. He found out how much it takes to run a state and that his say was not the last sayso. He promised to give people their money back. Next I heard from him (via the news media), he was apologizing. The worst part of all of what took place was this. A lot of young people were lured to the polls, because of Jesse's wrestler status. But, when they were later asked why they voted for Jesse, many of them said, "I voted for him, but I didn't think he would win!" After one (I am sure) agonizing term in office, poor Jesse passed up another run. Sad commentary for this nation.

Stay encouraged! And, continue to encourage one another.
Don't get through praying. Continue praying it through to the glo ry of God.

Praying and praising as I go.

Pessimism, Who Is Your Mother?

Bin Laden makes a sudden taped appearance on a fine Friday afternoon and stirs up the ongoing voter rhetoric.

News media hurriedly put out questions as they gasp for breath and all but foam at the mouth for the pot stirrer Laden. And, when they gather their collective breaths, they come up for air and latch on to two (2) Presidents of the U.S. That is what I said! And, since when did a candidate for that Office have the authority to assume the same position as the holder of that Office? This nation has only one (l) President. His voice ought to have been the only voice we heard coming out of that chaotic message. And the President's advisors need to let him, this country, and the whole world know this is too important an issue to relinquish the Presidential seat and come down to speak on the same level as a candidate.

I believe political correctness ends where political savvy begins. Period! The President may be a candidate at this time, but he is our President. Kerry has a big mouth but he can't seem to fix it to tell the people what his plan is or what he did to the veterans of Viet Nam.

Even though we are in the final throes of the election season, this nation still has only one voice. President Bush (#43). That voice is never more crucial to our welfare as it is when we are at war and our men and women are in harm's way. Yet, Sen. John Kerry (sorry, I choke on that) is sought out for a comment on the pot stirrer Laden; and, guess what?! Kerry makes a statement that sounds Presidential. And is there any wonder? President Bush had already made the statement many times over before that. Could anybody miss the last part of Kerry's message (i.e., "Whatever it takes!"), supposedly said with authority? Well, who has not heard the President publicly make that resolute statement as a mandate? Nevertheless, the press latched on to Kerry's remarks as though they came from his mouth alone and first.

We have seen the same thing happen time and again since Kerry stepped up on the public stage from out of the shadows. We saw it happen after the President used the terms, "Dead or Alive," and "Bring it on!" The DEMS were beside themselves. They talked disdainly about the "cowboy attitude" and scoffed even at the terms. Yet, after Kerry used the words, "Bring it on!" to taunt the President, his kool-aiders acted as if that was macho and began attributing that term to Kerry. Then Kerry began acting as if he were macho (on the President's coat tails). And that is the way the DEMS began riding out their election season. On GWB's coat tails! And I have not once heard the news media make that connection. Is there any wonder the nation is divided and so many constituents are confused?

  • Where is all of this pessimism, cynicism, sarcasm, bitterness, and downright pure hate and disrespect for authority coming from across this nation?

  • Who proclaimed the "Blame America First" dicta as the rule of thumb standard and won't call it back?

  • When did that 9-11 moment of national pride deteriorate into bringing in national disunity?

  • How is it the country is so divided along partisan lines?

  • Day in and out, we watch and listen as pundits appear by way of old fashioned means of getting out the news (i.e., tv, radio, newspapers). But, now, there is a new category. Bloggers are on the scene!

    Over the years, I have noticed how the Republicans (i.e., President, Congress, Senate) have capitulated to the DEMS' whims and then watched as they turned around and used the GOP compromises negatively against them. On the other hand, the DEMS have refused to compromise their position to reciprocate. Being "nice" has its place. But when you are in a neck-to-neck combat zone and your neck is headed for a chopping block or a hangman's noose, then nice has to go. I want to know why the GOP puts up with it. They are the ones who, on tv debates with the DEMS and their cohorts, keep smiling and nodding in agreement while we sit at home and watch them get pummeled unjustifiably so. The DEMS overtalk them, are rude, crude, and downright debased in their delivery. And even after the moderator/host says the GOPer gets the last word, the DEM surrogates not so gently elbow in their last zingers. And the hosts always allow it! Then they all smile and say a polite adieu. But, I don't believe our hearts can take it! It's past time for the disruptive DEMS and GOPers (who are) to be left on the side of the road and let the President's "Ship of State" glide on with those who can rock the boat and, yet, still stay on board (beyond party, race, gender, polls).

    I have asked this question, "Pessimism, who is your mother?" And I have a response. "News media take a look at your own womb that births discord rather than truth. That's really where we need abortions. "

    I am certain I am one of many who thank God that President Bush knows who His Father is and is not ashamed to let the whole world know Jesus Christ is his Role Model.

    Atrocious Lies via Black Commentator

    I believe this is strong stuff that needs to be addressed now; but by whom and how in a way as to correct these assertions in a timely manner? If anybody knows, please pass the link (below) to the appropriate GOP(ers).

    As Republicans, we know the truth of the matter. How is it our message is not getting through to some DEMS (other than the fact they do not want to hear or converse about issues in a common sense format)

    Below is only one such link that expresses best why Republicans *shall* remain in leadership four more years. Even so, unless the people who agree with those sentiments expressed in the link (below) were to pick up, pack up, and park their wares elsewhere (Canada?), we are sure to have (as a nation) worst dissention than before. The commentary (below) is totally skewed and downright wrong. Be sure you listen to the clip entitled, "Somebody's Counting the Wrong Blacks." These misconceptions and mischaracteristics must not be left unaddressed. What we are witnessing is a decayed national, ungodly ethic which has evolved out of their notion that the First Amendment allows it and illegal court actions that have given legal credence to it.

    It seems to me we are also witnessing what happens when "You spare the rod and spoil the child."

    Over the past 30 years or so, America has given birth to weak-minded, whining complainers. And, now, we are paying the price for their failure to adhere to Godly principles, values, morals, mores, virtues, truths, respect, discipline, ethics, and to the tenets of God, Himself. My prayer is, "Father forgive them, for they know what they do." (sic)

    This will make your head spin and your stomach hurt from yet another diatribe against Republicans.

    Kerry the Man Is Not Right!

    It boggles my mind that Kerry and his co-horts and the DEMS (seem) to get away with their deception. I know they will not do so but the appearance is remarkable.

    Early on, the DEMS announced on tv that they were going to "unite" like the Republicans.
    So, Terry McAuliffe called a halt to the other candidates running in the Presidential race and
    called for them to unite behind John Kerry. Most did early on with the exception of Rev. Al and Dennis Kosinich. It wasn't long after that the DEMS began to vocalize (plagiarize?) the tenents of the GOP. That is one reason Kerry has not been able to articulate his "PLAN" beyond saying that he has a plan. He cannot talk about what he does not know.

    The past week, Kerry perpetrated a lie about the United States troops in Iraq, claiming they did not guard explosives allowing them to be looted while they were there. Even after it was disproved, Kerry continued his tirade. Worst is that Kerry and his pundits feign not knowing they were talking against the troops. Let alone the Commander-in-Chief in the time of war. Shameful! Disgraceful! Atrocious! Unpatriotic (yes, that is what I said). Kerry does not seek the best interest of the United States. His intent is to win at any cost that place in this nation that would be too costly for this nation. No Presidential material is he!

    Is there any wonder the people across this nation are confused? The Kerry camp stole the GOP public relations stating that:

    "W stands for Women." In recent months, they came up with signs saying, "Women for Kerry."
    The lawn signs I have placed on my property say (on one side) "Bush Country" and (on the other side) " I M 4 W." The recent tv appearance by Kerry shows a very large sign behind Kerry that says, "Kerry Kountry." Last night, one cable network's report compared a statement made by Kerry with that listed on the GOP site. They noted the only difference in the wording was at the end, where Kerry's team said something to the effect that we need another leader. I wonder if the Kerry people have a spy in the GOP camp.

    If there is any discord, division, disunity in the land --- look only to Kerry the perpetrator.
    I cannot understand how Kerry can stand with a straight face and attribute to the President all those characteristics that are decisively his own (Kerry's).


    Beginning of the End for Kerry!


    I see John Kerry going down in flames.
    I see Kerry falling fast in a blaze of flames.

    God hates liars.
    "Yes, and all liars shall have their part in the Lake of Fire."
    Kerry and his team lie with impunity; and they do so, willingly, knowingly, and deliberately with the intent to deceive. Hurts my heart to think so many people are deceived. This is not only in the government but also in many churches with godless leaders. We need a Godly leader over the nation. Not to take people's "rights" away, but to put right all the wrongs they mistook as "rights" that they never had in the first place.

    What is the prayer?
    God be glorified in all the earth that You will be found to be the true and living God of all who receive Your Son.

    We tried it "their" way and gave them room to exercise "their rights," and Christians are on the edge of oblivion (if not for God's grace). Now is the time to stand as bold soldiers of the Lord Jesus, because He truly is the only way to receive all we

    Christian Blogs Undeleted Ring

    I have searched and searched and could not find a blog webring that fit my spirit. I did not know what it would look like. I only knew I would know it when I saw it. Alas, no go. Then, step by step, the Holy Spirit led me to first consider starting another ring. Next came my desire for the name of the ring all the while I was surfing the net to find one already made.

    Long story short ---

    Christian Blogs Undeleted Ring is now online as of Monday, October 25, 2004. The sites in this ring will be unique in that they won't be linked to more than one or two other rings. Visitors will not run into these sites with each click of the webring link.

    My prayer is that anybody who is wandering around the internet looking for a blog ring with Godly Christian sites (in general) will be led to come and join. Or, they will be able to click the "Join" link at the bottom of this site.

    Joke is on Kerry's Women Followers

    How does one get through a brick wall and open the heavy strongholds of people's minds? What is worst, many of those minds belong to people who profess Jesus as Savior and Lord. How can so many people be deceived and not know it? The Pied Piper piped his tune and the masses danced to it.

    Not only has Ms. Tay Razzzz ZZZaaa insulted the First Lady and anybody else in her path (i.e., Shove it!, etc.), but John Kerry, also, continues to insult the intelligence of the masses (at least the gullible). For me, the latest insult was hearing Kerry ask the audience of women he was addressing, "Who are you going to believe? George Bush or *your eyes*? Left unsaid was not hard to guess. Like everything else Kerry has pronounced during his 20-year term of public service, he quickly forgets what he has said and done and disavows having done it. But I understand, and I believe others do, that Kerry was asking those attentive women, without saying it, "Who are you going to believe? Me! Or your *lying* eyes!" How about that man? And he has the unmitigated gall to state for publication that President Bush is not right in his head.

    Well, Kerry-Edwards people, the joke is on you! And it is all over but the SHOUT! Well, I am not waiting, I am shouting now, because I am so happy this nation will get back to feeling pride for our officials and the conduct of business on behalf of U.S. citizens and for the good welfare, justice, and peace of the whole world without being concerned that our President is praying on his knees with thanksgiving to God for allowing him to watch over us, in the Lord, for another four (4) years. Thank you, Jesus! More time to help somebody to get to know you in the pardon of their sin before you crack the sky.

    The Joke is on John Kerry

    I rec'd a great email about Kerry lying. Told briefly, a man went to heaven saw a lot of clocks and asked St. Peter about them and was told they were "lying clocks." He said that everybody had them and when they told a lie, the hands on their clock would move. Replying to the man's other questions, St. Peter told him one was Mother Theresa's clock (the hands had not moved at all). Next was
    Abraham Lincoln's clock (he had lied only two times). The man asked St. Peter where was John Kerry's clock? St. Peter said, "Oh, that one is in Jesus's office. He is using it as a ceiling fan." (I know that's the truth) lol Have a blessed day!

    Kerry Lied Flash Video! Must see!!

    Sharing my initial reaction after viewing the film (referenced below). Heart wrenching!

    Oh my God. Along with the message from the Marine Corporal, that film broke my heart. I haven't stopped crying. I remembered those daily news reports with photos spread across page after page of our young men who gave all -- died for this country (as well as women). I remembered those nightly news casts with video tapes from the battlezone in the jungle. My heart couldn't take it then and, now, it is all back, and I can't stop crying. I get mad all over again when I think that in 2004 we are faced with the same ignorant mindset that caused our men and women to be mislabeled as the first to lose a war. Not true!

    I remembered the photos my husband brought back from Nam. My husband served in Viet Nam and he is one of the blessed ones who came back -- intact. I think I get more upset than he does about that era.

    North Vietnam won the war in our streets for no other reason than this. Just like then, today, again the ignorant masses are led by John Kerry out in the streets. It
    is his hope that America will "lose" the war on terrorism and I believe he does have a plan. I believe that plan was set in place back in the 1970s to turn this nation over to the enemies of our faith and culture. When we think that Kerry and Edwards are lawyers that ought to be enough to force us to see we are in this battle against good and evil. Lawyers?? Do we really need another 4 to 8 years of two more lawyers? Remember Billiary Administration? They have never left the political scene and they don't intend to do so. The DEMS always said they wanted Bill and Hill to have another term. I see this as their means to that ends ---- Kerry!

    Seeing that film also makes me want to start a movement against the government to release our men and women who were blessed enough to live through that hell in Iraq. The officials know that war is hell. Yet they have prosecuted our brave men and women and released the combatants! Pray for action to call for the release of those brave men and women "scape goats" of that Iraqi prison. I want to start a move towards having those soldiers exonerated and their pay restored. What is what they have done when compared to the terrorists who cut off heads of humans and film it so everybody can see? Where is the outrage about that? I am for President Bush but he, as Commander and Chief, also has to step up and speak out. He told this nation before going into battle that this was a different kind of war and that there would even be things that we would not know about (and I think we knew what they meant when he said it in the joint session of congress). Well, political correctness bedamned! Our people are in Iraq. My daughter volunteered to serve in Afghanistan and in Bosnia and, thanks to God, although she wants to go to Iraq, my prayers -- I believe -- have kept her home. I have had to fight the military on her behalf because she is a strong young woman who has earned medals and is a Captain. She is a college graduate, linguist, and a paratrooper. Yet her commanders tried to block her promotions and did block her bronze star. What's wrong with this picture? Our military need to be applauded. They have their own private hell but they love this country literally to death and have chosen to serve it even in the face of (their own) death. Yet, so many of this younger generation who have taken to the streets across this nation really do not know what it means to be a patriot. How could they when they have not seen enough people come to heart wrenching tears when the Star Spangled Banner plays or when the troops are on the march or when you look up and see the flag flying overhead? or when the President of the United States was about to address the nation. OR when you walk into the voting booth not to be vindictive but for the joy of doing what is right for the nation. I am offended -- highly so -- that the news media (who do so) have misused their positions to denegrate the Office. How could our children not be confused. We have taught them what is right. But schools and universities and peers have gripped their puny minds and told them to think for themselves (after they had told them what to think). And God is not in it. God have mercy on us all. And may the President's victory be more than enough proof for naysayers and this whole wide world to know that our God reigns Supreme and Supremely reigns! God bless.

    The Bush-Cheney 2004 Team and the IM4W Buttons--

    Just thinking about earlier today when I went shopping. Of course I put on my sweater with my two (2) IM4W buttons.

    Old age catching up with me.

    By the time I got inside the store and started to look around,this young man smiled, took a few steps then backed up (thought he was backing up for me---- NOT!) LOL

    He was curious about the buttons (forgot I had them on). So I told him to say the letters out loud. By the time he got to "W," he realized it was about --- and he said at the same time -- "George W. Bush!" As far as I know, he might have been a demo(n)crat, but at least GWB (43rd) was in his brain! HAH!

    Then a few minutes later in another part of the store, a woman shopper was near me. She had a problem communicating with the employee who didn't speak English. She (the employee) only spoke Spanish and I have spoken out publicly against Congress trying to make this a bilingual country). But, I translated between the two and that led me to talk further with the woman shopper about today's ongoing election events. Here's where the button comes into play (again).

    Taught me I need to pay attention to details.

    The woman shopper asked me what the buttons said. She told me she didn't have on her glasses. Then she came closer to my chest and read the button out loud. Guess what?! And this is the funny (humorous) part. She read out loud, "I M 4 W dot com" I was startled and told her it didn't say "dot com." Then I looked at the button closer and sure enough in very tiny letters was "dot com."

    Well, that just made my day. And it sure perked up a little more when I found myself driving behind another car that had a "Bush-Cheney 2004" bumper sticker on it. I felt positively proprietary, since I had *my* own sticker on my car, too! lol

    Even in MARYLAND it really feels great to be REPUBLICAN in 2004!!!

    God bless America. God bless Americans. God bless our President!

    And how was your day?!

    Bill O'Reilly Didn't You know. . . ?

    O'Reilly, didn't you know that "What goes around comes around?" Oh, I think you forgot!

    I never cease to marvel at the media pundits who flippantly pick up news from the ticker and, under the guise of "commentary," interject their opinions as if they were fact. Oh how they preen and, with puffed up chests, declare any accused (esp. if they are a black celebrity) already "guilty," as alleged. Lack of facts notwithstanding, the "no spin zone" becomes the force for spinning. O'Reilly had to know his time was just around the corner to stand in the shoes of the accused. Rightly or wrongly, but now he has to hear his heretofore exasperated "love-hate" public say, "Me thinks thou dost protest too much!" Doesn't feel so good does it?

    Worst of all, this same media lord who was so quick to pounce on Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant, and others whose very reputation and livelihood were at stake finds himself now in the arena of public opinion and spin. However, he quickly sought understanding and (what else?) Belief? Trust? Forgiveness? Pity? Patience? So why don't we hear the white media calling for his job? Why are we not hearing a call for advertisers to boycott this show and, indeed, the whole network? According to O'Reilly, that's the "right thing" to do in this case. After all, wasn't Kobe Bryant's accuser trying to shake him down for a whole bunch of money in the guise of a rape lawsuit? Oh, O'Reilly was only accused of unwanted phone sex that allegedly went on for several hours and over a period of several years and with the same woman(?) who, herself, is reportedly employed under his supervision at a reported salary of at least $93,000? That's not chump change, either!

    Different strokes for different folks? You tell me.

    Don't those accused black entertainers and athletes also deserve the benefit of the doubt?
    Don't they work hard to make their millions and pay their fair share?
    Don't they deserve to let justice be able to work her job without the news media prematurely fast forwarding their case with smirks and jabs and inuendos just because they "own" the microphone and pen for a few hours?
    Don't the news media need to take a good, long look at itself and check itself?

    Instead of journalists, American airwaves have been taken over by "commentators." They give no indication of caring about getting out the facts in an objective way. No. They want to spice it up --- sex it up --- titilate the ear drums of the masses (like me) who don't want to hear their garbage, but won't tune out for fear of missing out when "real news" comes through. I tell you this is not funny. Especially, O'Reilly! When his viewers write to compliment him and, also, ask him to hold in check his arrogance ---- he quickly shoots back from the lip to let us know in no uncertain terms that we are the ones who are arrogant, because he is in the "no spin zone."

    Oddly enough, as I have watched all those television pundits like O'Reilly do their work (male or female), I have screamed at my tv, "You just wait for your time!" And this, "I wonder how you would act, if it happened to you?" And, now we know, don't we? Doesn't feel so good does it?

    Media execs --- get with it! Stop confusing entertainment with news. We really can handle the truth! What is more, we want objective reporting sans poisoned pens and tongues. Research. Research. Research. Put more money in the pot for research and less in the pockets of the pundits. That'd be nice.

    Give justice a chance. Stop hanging our people with your tongues (where it is not warranted). After all, they have just as much money as you. And isn't that what makes the world go 'round? Keep in mind. "What goes around comes around." That, too, is a law of almighty God.

    As for O'Reilly, I will let justice have her say while I watch to see what the news media may (or may not) say about this curious case. How about that?

    Here's To "W" !!

    I don't like when email posts get out of context. Oh well.

    Now, to another subject. Where would I be without my IM4W buttons?

    Today I stopped at the grocery store and outside of it was a woman and young boy setting up a display. On the way out, the boy asked me a question and I said, "No." But after I put up my grocery cart to head for my car, I went over to him and asked what it was he said. He said he was selling popcorn for the Boy Scouts. Even had on his blue uniform. He was cute and courteous, too. So, since my husband likes popcorn, I told him I would buy some and gave him $10. The purchase was for $5. The woman (maybe his mother?) handed him change for $20, at the same time she noticed my IM4W buttons on my sweater. But I told her I had given him a $10. When she checked, she said, "Oh thank you. That wouldn't have been right." At that point I told her that was why I was for "W." I said we need moral authority. She agreed and said, "He is a moral man." I agreed but I told her this was beyond personalities and individuals. It was about "moral authority." And this is not about Bush or Kerry. It is about the whole country's needs rather than individuals. To my surprise, she thanked me and said, "I haven't heard anybody ever put it that way before." I told her it was because any other way creates arguments and discord. And, when I left her, she was less cynical about my buttons. I sure hope you hold on to your buttons! LOL That made my day just a little nicer.

    For grimacers, if any, I don't think I am smarter. I know I am not. I just like to open up and share, when I think my sharing can help somebody. And, it might just do that.

    Here's to "W"! As a matter of fact, did anybody here recognize that in addition to other themes, John Kerry's team stole the Bush-Cheney 2004 theme " ' W ' stands for Women" ? Now you can see those "Women for Kerry-Edwards" signs all over the place. For somebody touted as being so smart, Kerry does not have one original thought in his big toe let alone his heart. I heard one Bush pundit on tv say that "Kerry has a plan. He got it from Kinko's and its two points short of the Bush plan." How true. And how about Kerry's response to the question about his wife? He said, "Some might say I married up." And that came after he first spoke about his deceased mother and his two daughters. What's wrong with the man??? If he is -- God forbid -- mistakenly placed in the White House, this country will never recover from the downward slope escalated by the Clinton-Clinton-Gore Administration. Serious times call for serious talk. And, please, don't get me started!

    Pull Out Your Bush-Cheney Signs and Buttons!

    Anybody know what I'm talking about?

    Earlier today, when I drove up to my house and left my car, a woman was approaching me and asked if I lived here and I said I did. As she approached, she had this big smile on her face. I had never met her before but she introduced herself as a neighbor around the corner and up the street from my house. She told me her husband had come home yesterday and told her there were Bush signs on our lawn. She said she told him she was going to come knock on the door but he said not to. So she said today she decided to walk down to see for herself and saw me pulling up in my car.

    She told she was so glad to see somebody had enough courage to put the signs out. She said she was Republican but she had been afraid to put out any signs. (There are no Bush signs anywhere in this whole neighborhood.) In fact, I have not seen one yet. But I ordered two (2) Bush signs and put them out. And they really make a difference. One side of the sign says, "BUSH COUNTRY!" and the other side of the sign says, "IM4W". So I positioned the signs to show both messages to passersby. My neighbor and I laughed and talked so long that her husband took a walk around the corner to (I guess) check up on her. And the three of us talked for almost an hour even though we had never met before. We had a great time comparing notes on the Wednesday debate and the ignorance of democrats. Boy do we have a book to write! lol

    I also had a doctor's appointment earlier, and at the last minute, I put on my 2 buttons I ordered with the signs. Both buttons read, "IM4W."

    When I got to my doctor's office I noticed a sign on the receptionist's window. It was addressed to pharmaceutical reps and asked them to be patient and to not disturb the receptionist while she was either on the phone or with a patient. But when I saw the graphics and text about "sit buddist (sp?) style" and it included a reference about Budda, I went off (tried to be gentle). I asked the receptionist what that was doing there and who had put that up when we as Christians can't even say Jesus or display a cross in this country any more. She said she didn't know and started backing up and seemed to be cringing. LOL

    So while waiting for my doctor to see me, I was so disgusted I contemplated asking for my co-pay back and going out to find another doctor. So while deciding whether to stay or go, I looked at the bulletin board. Then, I went off again when I saw two pages of neatly typed clips that were obviously democratic spin long since disproved and, yet, noted as "The Facts." Again, the receptionist couldn't tell me who put it there so I said I would talk to somebody who could tell me why it was there. There was absolutely no balance of information in the telling. And there was one smaller note on the board about the President which was a terrible slur against him.

    One male patient was in the office at the time and he went up to the board to see what I was talking about (which he muttered to himself). LOL

    Then he turned to me to ask what was so bad about it. He said it was a private place and they could do what they wanted (but he was not abrasive or abusive). He was open to dialogue. Then we entered into discussion about the definition of "public v. private" facility and the freedoms of America and last night's Presidential debate. Then he asked me about what my buttons meant (i.e., IM4W). I told him and he said he never knew that. After I had asked him if he was a democrat, he told me he was a Republican the last four years. And by the time we parted, he shook my hand and thanked me. And we parted, I felt, with an understanding that even when we might not agree, we can listen and depart in peace.

    When my doctor came in, she asked me about the board and I told her. The receptionist must have gotten to her first. But my doctor said she didn't know it was on the board and she said she was going to speak with the person who put it up. She told me, "They are all democrats but I am not." I told her that I was just surprised to see that in the doctor's office, especially without counterbalance. And on the way out, I laughingly told the receptionist that posted information was incorrect and it was enough to give patients high blood pressure. I told her I was going home to make a cup of tea and calm down.

    And how was your day?

    No "Separation of Church and State" For Me!

    I think God allows death, because He knows human life can stand but so much, even after He has cleaned us up as only He can. God knows that our life becomes repetitive. I'm not talking about coming back as a butterfly or such, as some may believe (i.e., not reincarnation). I am speaking about the differences between youth and old age (in human terms).

    Youth comes along and reminds elders of where they have already been and overcame by the blood of the Lamb Jesus. But youth becomes obstinate in the learning process (I was one of those once). And that hurt the heart of those who had already travelled that road and learned the pitfalls of life. It hurt the heart to the breaking point and at that point when the heart breaks into pieces like "Humpty Dumpty," then life ceases to stimulate growth to recover. Elders realize the futility of the human struggle (thank God those who die young are spared the fate of youthful ignorance) but the old souls long to go where the initiated have gone on ahead of them.

    Christians have so many blessings. God blesses us to come under His forgiving hand to rest in His loving heart all because of His grace and mercy. But God please help us to overcome believers who have gained a little knowledge somewhere between life and death and want to take on God's job. I laugh in the face of such ignorance and, yet, I am grieved by such ignorance, because that ignorant has no idea their ignorance is showing. But I know that if God's mercy should allow them to come to that place called, "Let us hear the conclusion to the matter," then they would laugh, too, at just how ignorant they really were about God, the things of God, and the people of God.

    Yes, we come across so many believers (online and offline) who love God and whom God loves so much. But how is it their love is so willing to dismiss God's "chilluns' " whom *they* believe to be ungodly but without cause? The truth of the matter? They are God's "chilluns' " who have moved beyond "beyond," and none can see but those who have endured all that went on before to arrive at the best place of all. And that is, at that place of pure contentment "in whatsoever state (they) find (themselves)." God was not playing when He said what He said. And all that He said-- He said. God really meant what he said. But He is still yet speaking! Hearing and obeying is the human lesson not yet quite mastered. I've got so much peace that I am emptied of self (at times) and it becomes all the moreso with each passing day. We have always lived in the days when victory waited up ahead.

    But on that day we meet victory -------- what a day! Who can understand? If even believers fail to discern, then how will the world come to know this "conclusion to the matter"?

    Debate #2 w/Clear and Definite Differences

    Friday night, I watched the clear and defining moments of the Presidential Debate No. 2, which was held at the Washington University in Missouri (Friday night). President Bush presented a definite difference from Sen. Kerry, his opponent. The differences were always there, but Kerry continued to try to emulate the conservative position for so many months it's no wonder the general public is confused. I surfed through the televised programming before, during, and after the debate and found the media bias towards Kerry is so obvious it hurts my head (Fox News Cable 54, MSNBC Cable 57, CNN Cable 2, C-SPAN, C-SPAN2). The latter two stations were the least biased presentations. Of course, their telephone callers who saw the same programming had diverse opinions and views about it.

    Charlie Gibson (Host, "Good Morning America" tv program) selected objective, substantial questions from the audience members and had a selected number of them to read their questions outloud for response by the President and the Senator. I have read quite a few online assessments of that debate, and I have heard the pundits and spinners during the debate wrap up. I believe President Bush took the gloves off (finally!) and that he forcefully put Kerry on the defensive by reminding him of his (Kerry's) 20-year Senate record that is nondescript, especially when placed alongside the President's almost four-year first term in office.

    As for me, I will continue to work for and join in with the continued prayers of faith on behalf of President Bush, his administration, our congressional leaders, and for all those who love the Lord God's truth, liberty, justice, freedom, faith and love.

    The reader(s) will note I have not delineated the differences in this post. There are so many who have already written about the debates in their Blogs. And any who are interested can find those via an online search. Suffice it to say, I pray for four more years for the Bush-Cheney Administration. Thank God!

    Did Pres. Bush Drop the Ball on Iraqi Inspections?

    I came across a great timeline. Many of us lived through it in the moment but this person has compiled a great timeline to allow us to look back. Sen. Kerry vehemently contends President Bush did not give the U.N. inspectors enough time before taking steps to oust Saddam. What Kerry has not talked about is where he was (Kerry) in the Senate during that time long before former Gov. G.W. Bush became President. As I recall, much of what went on before that was within the domain of President Bill Clinton! And, now, we are being pestered by the same administration people who failed to take decisive action when they had the chance (Clinton-Gore). What I can't understand is how gullible so many people are who could very easily do a little research for themselves today rather than just "drink the kool-aid" doled out by Demo(n)crats.

    VP Cheney Kicked Sen. Edwards' Butt!

    Let me be clear. Christians are peace-loving followers of the Lamb Jesus. It is not contradictory to profess Christ and Salvation and, at the same time, kick the devil every chance we get. God did not make us to be doormats to be walked on and kicked around. When "Christ in us, the hope of glory," resides within us and among us who love Him, we know that by His Spirit we can discern right from wrong and good from evil and mess from bless. LISTEN! It is all well and good to know about the Lord and His Word. But it is all together something else to know Him and His will, word, and way. When you know this God we serve, then you are not afraid to stand up for what is right and true and of God.

    Republicans, as a party, are people who generally confess to be Christians. Yet, Democrats, as a party, make the same confession. How, then, can there be such a wide gap among them in terms of what political and social issues they support? Notwithstanding all of that ---- Republicans continued to take the high road and stayed focussed on the issues. Democrats turned a deaf ear and lent a blind eye to the discourse. If that were not bad enough, they then emerged as a party to misrepresent the unfolding events in the world.

    [If anybody wants to know what I *really* think, email me for an indepth discussion/debate/argument/talk/summation, etc.].

    In this forum, I only want to speak on the surface, because I have found that deeper discourses go by the boards when people clearly do not understand or have any intentions of trying to reach some degree of understanding with one another.

    Why do I say that VP Cheney kicked Sen. Edwards' Butt?

    VP Cheney spoke directly to the issues. He addressed the questions Gwen Ifill, as Moderator, posed to him and he still maintained a calming yet strong demeanor compared to Sen. Edwards' boyish inexperience and failure to directly (or indirectly) address the questions posed to him by the Moderator. In this way, Edwards followed the model of Sen. John Kerry (his running mate). Except Kerry remained with a frozen face while refusing to respond directly or indirectly to questions posed to him during his debate with President Bush. The President's campaign is hit hard not by the debates as much as they are by talking heads and pundits who try to effect policy and manipulate the upcoming Presidential election by twisting and spinning out of control on behalf of the Demo(n)crats.

    News media are still playing the dangerous game of forgetting that historically and by necessity, this country has only one (1) President at the time. But they have capitulated to the Demo(n)crats who have made it no secret that they want (sic) Clinton to have a third term in office. When we see their same old hateful rhetoric and stepped up efforts to undermine the Bush-Cheney Administration every chance they get, then it ought to become clearer that they meant it when they said they *hate* George W. Bush (#43). Americans who know the worth of prayer realize they cannot discontinue sending up prayers on behalf of this administration, nation, and all people all over the world. I am leaving so much unsaid, in this forum, but my mind, body, and spirit, stand ready, willing, and able to engage the battle. I, for one, am not afraid to kick butt and take names! And, yes, I am Christian. I know God and God knows me. And I thank God for all this Holy Boldness that He worked in me to work through me.

    War Is Hell!

    War is hell. This is 2004. That message is not new. It is as old as time. Since Cain killed Abel. Nobody likes war. Especially mothers --- or fathers who send off sons, daughters, children, husbands, wives, in-laws, friends, enemies. How can we forget there is a time for everything under the sun. Time for war. Time for peace. Time to laugh. Time to weep. Time to love. Time to hate. War is a necessary evil. It is all the moreso when it is not begun by those who love peace. We love peace. We did not seek war. On the other hand, we must not cower in the face of evil. Does it gain us peace to back away from wickedness? I think not.

    War is hell when good people do nothing to confront the hell of war when it confronts them. Understand? We did not seek war. We did not ask for war. We did not start this war. Remember when Saddam Hussein invaded its neighbor in the desert and took over before the U.S. went forth and drove him back? At that time, President Bush No. 41 capitulated to the voices that told him to not go to Baghdad to take Saddam out. He stopped short of Baghdad. People who depended on the U.S. at that time rose up against Saddam but the U.S. backed out to satisfy the "peace mongers(?)" Saddam carried out horrors this nation as a people could never even imagine (tongues cut out with razor blades, necks cut off with swords, hands cut off for touching U.S. money, school children killed for learning English, (it has been reported that literally busloads of people were found buried ---- alive --- in the desert). Women and men torn to shreds by vicious dogs unleashed by Saddam's evil sons. Saddam's two sons-in-law who first defected but were lured back only to be horribly killed (and these were men who were married to Saddam's two daughters at the time). Men were bound and thrown from the rooftops to the ground below and dragged away screaming from pain only to be killed. Saddam killed whole communities of men, women, children.

    The military are truly "America's Finest." They are men and women who have volunteered to serve this nation. To a man and woman who serve, they want to of their own volition. They understand what it means to fight for what is worth fighting for. My children volunteered. They are wonderful men and women who serve. And they know and love God. They trust God. They love truth and righteousness.

    IT IS A DIS-SERVICE (sic) and ignorant lack of understanding of anybody who fails to understand John Kerry is not calling for anything but for President Bush to move aside so he can do the same thing. Do not be deceived. Kerry is a liar. He is Godless. He mimics President Bush to deceive the masses of people ----- and they are the blind who are led by the blind. We had well over 3,000 people killed and maimed and forever changed on September 11, 2001. Many of us were up talking to one another the night before that without an inkling of what was to come in the early dawn. All of us were stunned beyond belief. President Bush and his administration had only just come into that office EIGHT months before. Clinton and Gore had EIGHT whole years to protect and defend and preserve America. They failed. The Twin Towers had been attacked before we knew them as terrorists. The U.S. Cole was attacked. Oklahoma was bombled. Look back to Atlanta, Georgia with the bombing during the olympics --- can you remember hearing about bombs with nails and other sharp instruments in America before that?

    President Bush ---- THANK GOD FOR THE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Young people and old people who fail to understand the role of the President of the U.S. are harmed and they are harming this nation. They need to go back ---------- pick up a history book that has not been altered ---- study and ask somebody who knows what PATRIOTISM means.

    As long as this nation is at war, we need to re-introduce the term and penalty for TREASON! Kerry leads the pack now just as he did in the late 60s and early 70s. He aided and abetted the enemy then. Kerry is aiding and abetting the enemy right now in 2004. I am sick of the whiners and complainers. Our military are not the boys and girls, as the ignorant call them. They are not our little *babies*. They are not even our *children* any longer. They are grown men and women!!!!! They know their mission and they are the true PATRIOTS! SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

    We need to go all the way back to powdered eggs, blackout shades, curfews, anklets, powdered milk, picking up tin cans and soda bottles for nickels. Maybe then, these people will understand we are at war!!!!! War IS HELL! Try living somewhere else and see if America is all that bad. Our faith is in the Lord God. Whose heart does not go out to every one of those who has been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan or Bosnia or Kuwait, or Kosovo, or Germany or Korea or Viet Nam or on the streets anywhere in this nation? I hate war! I hate warmongers! More than that, I detest Americans who side with the warmongers and continue to "blame America first." By the time they come to the realization that they are doing much harm, it will be too late. But they can live with their conscience. And I do not forgive them after they have read this, because by now, surely they know what they do! I have told them!

    I enjoyed reading your blog via I understand. I empathize. I agree wholeheartedly with many of your sentiments in terms of living an obedient life unto God in times when so many humans do not really believe He is real, alive, and in total charge of all things ---- including us.

    I have placed a link to your site to visit often. If not for the Lord God, there would be no comfort in our spirits. And who can understand? Only those who have experienced His hand full upon them.

    God's continued peace and blessings to you and yours.

    President Bush Bears Much Weight!

    The long-awaited first debate between Sen. John Kerry and President George W. Bush (43) is over. For now, I cannot address the content, because the air is filled with so many opinions swirling all about. We all watched the same telecast yet we each saw something different. To add to the mix, the news pundits put in their commentaries. And, we all know how much weight national news coverage carries. Suffice it to say, the President has carried a lot of weight on his capable shoulders. Much of that weight has come from the deception of the Demo(n)crats. God help us as a nation, if we have to even think about another four years of the Clinton regime.

    This is the times in which we live. People call right wrong and wrong right. Sen. Kerry and his spin machine know how to rip the heart out of any truth. They operate from the standpoint of pure evil. That is enough to tire anybody. Trying to keep up with the many positions of Kerry and his cohorts and maintain some semblance of dignity is very hard work! Our President is articulate and steadfast and has a healthy respect for the Office. He is doing his job of protecting and defending this nation. Anybody who cannot see and understand the differences between Kerry and the President will not be able to no matter how many words the President may or may not use.

    President Bush is the man for this time and season. If the Demo(n)crats had any idea of what loyalty to this nation means, they would realize how much harm they are doing to the cause of freedom and security by mischaracterizing the President's ongoing position while we are at war. And Demo(n)crats are doing it for the sake of winning politically by any means necessary. God help us, is my continuing prayer. The Demo(n)crats upset my stomach every time they show up and twist the truth into facts that suit their evil purpose.

    Earlier today, I received an email from a military person stationed in Baghdad, Iraq, just around the time the news broke about the explosion and murder of about 35 children and injury of about 100, including our military. That email was a pleasant conversation and my heart went out in gratitude to all who serve to keep us free.

    This very night (Thursday), the President knew what the nation had not yet learned --- that is, more of our military was at that very moment embarking on an intensive combat offensive in Iraq. Even at this hour, the news is still not being widely disseminated to the public. I happened to have just seen it on CNN. Is there any wonder that President Bush's mind might have been elsewhere tonight?

    Maybe I will be able to speak on the debate matters between now and the next debate(?) But my prayers are with President Bush, his family, his team, our military, and this entire nation and our allies.

    Lord, "forgive them for [The Demo(n)crats know] what they do!"

    You Take It From Here!

    All I know is how thankful I am that God has allowed me to live to see the fulfilment of His promises in my life and in the earth. If you keep on living long enough -- If God blesses you to live as long as I --- perhaps you will understand. And, if God holds back the Trumpet Sound, as only He can and will, you may have a heads up on those who are up ahead of you.

    Struggle for change is futile and King Solomon is right in that "Vanity of vanities. All is vanity, says the Preacher." When you are young and beautiful and believe that beauty does not die -- in fact, cannot die, you deceive yourself. Day by day morticians have work -- and they do not have to look very hard to find it, either. Nobody wants to be morbid and dwell on the facts of life and death and yet we walk daily with our graves beside us ("dust to dust. . . ." ) Lower than the dirt that we walk upon despite the asphalt and cement and tar that covers the surface.

    I marvel at the way men and women fritter away their days making plans for 20 years hence, as if to say, there is no God to stop me from carrying out *my* plans! Surely, it won't hurt to every once in a while stop long enough to let your breath catch up with you. If you stop to think about it long enough, you will understand you have been running on your own steam ----- and how long did that last you? Not very.

    Good people of earth ---
    Great plans and gobs of money a life does not make.
    For, if that were so, the earth would still be full of "old money" and "old moneymakers" would be right here with it instead of with their heirs in control of that fortune. Why do you delude yourselves that unless you alone raise the Lord's blood-stained banner it will not get done? Did He not say He has so many who have not kissed the feet of idols or bowed their knee to baal? God always has a ram in the bush, but the way believers are continuing to hop, skip, jump, and leap all over God's Kingdom, you would think they would have made progress by now. But it seems to me they have not lept high enough to touch God's Throne Room. If they had, they would, by now, have heard Him say --

    "I the Lord alone AM God and I have already done what you are struggling to do. Time is at My beck and call, and Time will move only as I direct. Time knows your name and address, because I have written it in My books. My Book awaits your presence. Well done, My good and faithful servant, is My own to tome. How long is My question not yours. Go on believing nothing has ever been done before you came upon the scene. Dare to believe that, if you will. Does that make it so? Nay. Hear My voice in the midst of the noises throughout the universe. It is only that which comes from My own voice that shall survive even your time on earth. Have not my dear servants who now rest with my arms wrapped around them already left a clear pathway for you to follow? Think about it. "

    Now, this is what I say, You all can take it from here! But, as for me, I believe I will stand back and bask in the warmth of the Lord's beautiful rays He revealed way back in the day when people listened and heard from Him and were not afraid to obey. So the Preacher is right ---- "Let us hear the conclusion of the matter . . . . " Do you know what that is? Have you read Ecclesiastes? Praying and praising God as I go.

    Demo(n)cratic Shrill Voices Rising!

    The closer we get to Election Day 2004, the louder the shrill will be coming from the Demo(n)crats! They are running scared and it is scary. The once renowned U.S. Congress has shown its ugly face to the world for all to see. I guess it wasn't enough for us to witness literal fisticuffs in various august legislative bodies abroad (i.e., Taiwan, etc.). And, although it may appear we have come that close on the floor of our Congress, I pray our citizens will never have to "read all about it" via any of our news outlets.

    The downhill spiral leading into the brand new millennium. When former President Clinton had the unmitigated gall to unzip his fly in the White House office while conducting the nation's business at that "sacred desk" of authority, responsibility, and accountability, he did so with a female intern underneath that desk. Then when his actions were finally "uncovered," he tried to cover up with fig leaves (lies). And "fig leaf" mentality has become the mantra of the Demo(n)crats ever since. What is more, gullible citizens bought the lie and have become bogged down in filth and degradation to the point of no return. And, right now, Sen. John Kerry's mind is not the only one that is "seared." Their minds have also become seared. Their fate is sealed. And HELL has written their names on the furnace door!

    Sen. Kerry, Sen. Edward (Ted) Kennedy, Howard Dean, Sen. Nancy Pelosi, and on and on to name just a few have continued to try to lead this nation down the final stretch into hell's firery furnace. Their collective shrill voices have united to fill the air with hatred for one man ----- President George W. Bush (No. 43).

    What is it about this one man, our current President, that causes such lacridity? Could it be that they know his heart is pure in God's sight? Do you suppose somebody glimpsed that his light is too bright for their dark-of-night deeds? Oh yes, I am sure these are they who have stayed up all night and day to hatch plans about how they can "get" this man. Indeed, they have told us they are out to get him. They even introduced a new slogan in the land. Dem(on)s call it "Anybody But Bush!" (ABB) We have witnessed their blatant resolve as it has gone forth via newspapers, radio, television, word of mouth, and even the halls of Congress. They have declared before God and this people how much they "Hate" our President. Now, I'll say this and mean it! Listen. l sure hope our CIA and FBI and Homeland Security folk have their eyes on those people over there who already have passes for admission to the Capitol. Why? Because any ordinary "Joe or Jane" on our streets would be scrutinized very closely, if even a hint of dislike for President Bush came from them. Are those with such vocal voices in Congress who breathe out threats against the President, and who have access, to be taken any less serious? I hope not. These are the "difficult days ahead," Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke about. And he should know, too, because he told us "I've been to the mountaintop! I have seen the Promised Land . . . 'mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!' " I, for one, believe his report as Godly and of God. We need, as a nation, to get up off our knees and do what we know God has already told us to do. The reason so many remain on their knees is they are afraid to get busy about God's work.

    I say, "Move on out!" It is past time and the enemies of God have overtaken us to give credibility to abortions, same-sex "marriages," redefinition of family, athiesm, teen sex, modern-day theologies/religions, manmade leaders, and all those things that are anathema to God's will, word, and way. God have mercy on us.

    Moreover, any time our black Congressmen and women spew out, with disdain, as they do, their disrespect for the President of the United States, then we know we are in trouble. Have they forgotten their manners taught at Mammy's knee once she got up off of them? Have they forgotten how very hard Pap worked in the steel mills and on the iron rails so they could one day stand where they are today? Have they become so niggardly that they have forgotten the many niggers that hung from sycamore trees? Yes, like the song said, "Strange fruit." But all those who have been blessed to climb up out of all of that to be able to "sit under their own vine and fig tree shade" (paraphrased) have refused to take one moment to reflect on how they got there. And now that they are ----- they have not learned that this is not about them! This is about a nation. This is about a people, yes. But "the people" they represent want to see their example of how we move forward "as a people" to include all people who love God, themselves, and this nation "under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    It is past time for all Godly, freedom loving people to tell the Demo(n)crats that their saying it does not make it so! Whatever "it" might be, there has to be some evidence to substantiate their shrill charges. This nation (north, south, east, west) needs leaders who will push aside their own selfish agendas and allow those missions and goals to be ushered in which will elevate any debate rather than kill it from the outset in order that all will have a chance to engage the battle for truth and justice in the land.

    There is but one man who is up to the task at hand of leading a team supported by Vice President Cheney. And he gets my vote. But not only my vote there are also millions of others who draw near to support him. He is President George W. Bush and I, for one, am so glad he even wants the job! Praying for his continued peace and strength in the Lord. Praying for this nation and the world and for all who love God. Always earnestly praying in Jesus' name. Amen.

    Trailblazers in 2004 or Re-inventing the Wheel?

    On Sunday, I passed by a sign that read, "Trailblazers Church of Christ." It made me wonder whether their message was that they were blazing new trails for Christ or that they were following the trails already blazed by followers of Christ so long ago? Somehow, I believe it was the former response. So, that made me search the annals of my puny mind to recall how many who once walked that path so they could come along and step upon it are now, themselves, resting in the arms of Jesus? Ought they to have been forgotten so soon? How soon is "so soon?" I believe the answer is, for as long as life lives. But history is only as kind as those who were around in the moment and are willing and able to relate the story within context. History begins when life ends and when there is no more to be written.

    What about trailblazers? In 2004, if we were to search in earnest, we would be sure to find what is believed to be "trailblazers" is actually re-inventing the wheel. So much wasted time! History has proved how the truism, "Youth is wasted on the young," really is of a truth. And, too often by the time that reality is brought to fruition, the curtain is closing and is drawn never to be opened again. Understand? "There is nothing new under the sun." Oh how I long for that day when God is believed without mankind adding their own mentalities to taint His truths. Elders are seen to be infants and infants are thought to be elders. Upside down living is costly. Values, morals, ethics, integrity become skewed all the more when just because times and seasons change, people think God changes His mind according to the times. But when God said, it was already done for all time. We are just the ones whose time He chose to bring on the scene for a brief time. And, if that is so, how can it be that mankind has not seemed to learn the lesson that no one is immune to sin, disease, death, and dying and they, too, will soon pass off of the stage?

    I daresay, if but for one instant a thought would catch hold in the minds of mankind (humans) that only God is mortal and eternality is His alone --- how much better would our times and seasons upon earth be, if but for a "brief strut across the stage?"

    Christians ---- devils ---- athiests ---- nonbelievers ---- disbelievers ---- doubters --- scoffers --- mockers --- naysayers ---- learned ---- ignorant ---- scholarly ---- experienced ----- nonexperienced ---- living and dead ----- all will come to understand how much we are really hearing from the Lord our God. And won't it be something when they hear their own lips say, "I wish I had believed when I had time." My mother always said, "If you don't know, you'd better ask somebody." Sad when people don't know and don't know enough to know they don't know. So, what are we to say to all these things? God knows. Seek His face. Hear His voice. Obey His will, word, and way. Remember ------ in spiritual terms, a crowd of people is not the criteria for being thought to be on the right road. But, oh ----- if, every now and then, you find a soul coming up that same lonely road you are on ----- just know you are on the right road and "few there be that find it." Say on!

    Whatever may come. Whatever may go. God is, was, and forever will be. Vote for those ones who promote the heart of God and whose spirit your own spirit bears witness as true and of God. If there is any "mixture," move on away from there.

    All thanks to God! After a long prayerful search online, I was led to a new template that really suits my site. I have found that there are a whole lot of beautiful graphics online but not all or many are meant for everybody. But "Eye For Beauty" is a wonderful graphics site. Special thanks to Gini!

    Now, I spent a whole day trying to figure out how to change my template to my newly purchased one. I have been waiting several days, to date, for blogger reps to get back to me about how to make the exchange, since my new template came without the blogger tags. Blogger reps came through. But they only sent me back to the page that gave me a headache in the first place. (Said with tongue in cheek).

    I can't complain, because I was pleasantly surprised each time I previewed my changes and something actually looked like it was supposed to look! Yes! Prayer works wonders. Praise God! So, after working all day and l/2 the night getting my new site as far as it is, I am calling it a night (unless I get a brainstorm). Then I'll work some more to get my post links to work the way they are supposed to. I wonder how long that will take? Oh well. I already know what I wrote, anyway. Besides, if anybody else wanted to know, they could always email me.

    John Kerry's "Dean" Moment---

    Who didn't see the strong diplomatic demeanor and statements made by our President at the U.N. earlier this week? He was not there for entertainment or kudos. He represented this nation as world leader very well! That's why true leaders are called, "Visionaries." "If the leader has no vision, the people perish." That's why leaders have to first learn how to follow. Our President has done that. Senator John F. Kerry has never learned that lesson. And it shows. And that is why he is all over the place offering nothing but criticism of things he knows nothing about.

    Who didn't understand that President Bush is not only a candidate for re-election but he is also still our current sitting President of the U.S.? There are decisions that are still only his alone to make. And he is a Godly man.

    Who didn't see the guest appearance of Senator Zell Miller (Democrat) at the recent RNC in N.Y., as a look back to the day when the words, "Statesman" and "Diplomat" meant something? We need the demonstration of more like him where it was not only what he said and how he said it but why. He did America proud, because he spoke from what he knows this country will stand for and what it will not stand for despite party affiliation. He didn't make anything up, either.

    Who didn't see the Thursday televised program with the current Prime Minister of Iraq standing and speaking boldly before the Joint Session of our Congress and take it to heart that we are on the right track?

    Now why would candidate John F. Kerry, a U.S. Senator, not have taken note and responded accordingly?

    Instead, he jumped up out of his sick bed (lost his voice) to publicly criticize President Bush's speech at the U.N. Then Kerry cancelled an earlier appearance he had Thursday (claiming loss of voice, which earlier clips showed) but then he jumped to make his appearance later on the same day (Thurs.) to criticize the Prime Minister of Iraq, along with President Bush to label them as liars and deceptive. I thought I was seeing a Kerry meltdown. To be sure we were looking at a Howard Dean moment right before our eyes. And Kerry doesn't even have the mind to understand we are at war. We have men and women (military and civilian) in harms's way on the battlefields of foreign shores. And those nations have access to the same tv programs we watch. Oh how the terrorists and their supporters must have been jumping up and down with glee. I can just hear them say, "You tell 'them,' Mr. Kerry! We can hardly wait for 'them' to get fed up and pull out of our "domain." " And, if this is not aiding and abetting the enemy, tell me what is.

    Vietnam Revisited. If you have any family, friends, acquaintances who still "Blame America First" and say "Look what 'they' did in Vietnam!" Pull out a picture of John Kerry and say, "Hmmmm, now I wonder why that is?"

    Marylanders For Bush! I might see more Kerry/Edwards signs in the neighborhood where I live, but I take great delight and comfort knowing that my house (sign on the lawn or no) is that one light in the whole block! Do you do the same? "Hail to the Chief" shall once again be the rallying cry behind President George W. Bush for another four years, as God is our Judge and as you carry the word for skeptics to judge the thing for themselves instead of remaining in the "herd mentality" mode behind Demo(n)crats. A partisan statement? Yes. And proudly so.

    Ms. Smith's WebLog

    -- Click link for demonstration of Excellence in Teaching.

    Today As A Clergy 19 Years--

    Today, on this anniversary date of my God-given ministries, I thank you, Lord, for loving me through 19 years+ of serving your people in Jesus' name and by Your grace. If not for You, and knowing how real and alive You are, I truly would have fainted, because I have failed to get the heart of Jesus for the ones who did not return to say, "Thank you" and thereby glorify God in the telling. Some preachers might know what I mean. Some might not. Those are the ones I stay away from. The former will understand. God knows. I am so thankful that You called me during the time in my life that I had no better sense than to believe You did it! Hallelujah! Yes, Lord! And I still believe it. You, O Lord, have promised and You have proved how You keep Your promises. And, thereby, I "walk by faith and not by sight." It is "in you I live and move and have my being." Supernatural living!

    Politicos- Reaching Out To You Is So Hard to Do!

    Sometimes, I get the feeling that government entities do not trust the people. Try making a call to any office for assistance and, if you can get through, it is more than likely to an answering machine. But, if a human answers, they are likely to immediately turn you over to either a "comment line" or a "voicemail." The way things are going, I am not all that certain somebody will answer at "911," if you can get through.

    How can it be that, with all of the government's money (i.e., taxes from the people) and enough personnel to fill up many stadiums, it is so hard to find a person (top to bottom) who is willing or able to either help you or refer you to the correct source to get help? Insiders are so busy introducing their friends and relatives and their friends to the right people to help them that it seems like you have to know somebody who knows somebody to get an audience with somebody to answer your questions and help. A whole lot of government waste of time and money could be alleviated, if human resources informed their incoming workers they are there to give service ---- not attitude (as in, "I've got mine. Now, you get yours!"). Atrocious.

    Senators, Congressmen, Mayors, Governors, the Office of the President, and others in leadership leave us to fend for ourselves while their (unelected) workers assume their authority to make life and death decisions. That is not right. It needs to be addressed. I could say much more, but, because they remain unreachable, I reached out to try to "touch" somebody via a fax (copy below). Lord, help your people to know it isn't that nobody is speaking out against injustices and illegal acts. It is just that we do not own the news media to voice our concerns on a wider scale. Oh well. Lord? You know I tried. (I want to see my attachment and remember to keep on trying). See attachment below.

    September 21, 2004

    From: Rev. L. Dowell, [address omitted from blog]

    To: Mr. Ed Gillespie, et al and BUSH-CHENEY '04, Inc.

    Senator Biden appeared on IMUS* and made incredible statements that I have not heard repeated by any news media. IMUS is broadcast on radio, but I saw it on C-SPAN either Thursday, Friday, or Monday past. It was within that timeframe and can be verified via transcript or copy of the IMUS tape of that interview. * Biden was interviewed via phone in.

    Senator Biden made statements to IMUS and the public in re intelligence from committee meetings. Senator Biden also said that he had met with 50 (or more) world leaders and he told some of them that they "know George Bush is not good for this country," and that unless they helped (to get him out of office), that "if Kerry becomes President, I am going to go into his office and tell him to pull them out! (referring to the troops in Iraq). It was frightening and dangerous knowing our own elected leaders are boldly working to undermine our President for political reasons.

    Also, on Monday evening (9-20-04), at a panel discussion on "Hardball," Tony Coelo (sp?) former Clinton-Gore advisor told Chris Mathews that the Dan Rather memo information was known to the Gore Campaign (during the Gore-Bush 2000 election). Coelo said that information was brought into Gore and they considered it but decided against using it. Coincidentally, Dan Rather (CBS) has admitted his office has been "working on the (memo) story for five (5) years." The transcription or tape of "Hardball" will confirm this in terms of the DNC's ongoing attempts to undermine President Bush.

    Today, (9-21-04), I called the offices of Senator Hatch and Senator Bill Frist, but I am concerned that none of this information will be considered in the course of the overall investigation. I want truth and justice to prevail. I am a Republican volunteer ("Party for Bush" and Prayer Team), but I also know this nation needs President Bush to remain in office. We do not need another term like "Clinton-Gore" with their deceptive practices. Please continue to fight for right. Thank you.
