Greatness

I just got back from our Church men's retreat at Skamania Lodge with teachings by Gayle Erwin and it was amazing. There was nothing profound about it, it simply stated the simple message of the Gospels by focusing on the nature of Jesus.

We have cartoonized Jesus, God, Satan, Heaven, and Hell so much that Christianity is often not recognized anymore and the true purpose of why Jesus came is not understood.

Last night we started by talking about what it meas to be great and first. The Disciples are seen fighting often over who was the greatest among them. They would bicker and argue like children but quickly shut their mouths when Jesus would ask what they were talking about. He knew but I guess He figured it would be fun to see how they would respond. After asking, He would break into a little mini sermon on what it meant to be great in the Kingdom of God. He told them if you want to be great then you must become a servant, or a slave, to others. Servants exist to make life better for others. This is the exact opposite of human nature. We are told to have high self-esteem. We are told to take care of ourselves first before we can take care of others but Jesus turned that around. We are to be other-centered and have high others-esteem by putting their needs ahead of ours.

True satisfaction comes in others-centered service to others. We often like to act like we are serving others but our attitudes after that "service" gives away our intentions. Often we are upset about something after we help others out because we are expecting something in return.

Jesus was our perfect example of selfless service. He came down to earth, had no home, had no money, was born as a baby in a dirty barn, he grew up in a region that was considered a hick town. The book of Isaiah tells us there was nothing special about His appearance. He lived a perfect life and died one of the most brutal deaths a person could suffer. If He was God, why did He go through all of this? He didn't have to but He lived as an example for us. He didn't just tell us to serve others, He showed us how to serve others by becoming a servant. He showed us how to love unconditionally by loving us unconditionally. He had his pick of anyone in the world to make His Disciples and He chose a bunch of uneducated losers who never understood what He was talking about, denied knowing Him, argued over who was the best among the group, betrayed Him, and doubted His promises.

Today we talked about humility. Humility is not a strength of people. Even in our humility, we are often prideful. We look at ourselves and say, "look how humble I am." Gayle explained that humility is having an honest and accurate view of ourselves and presenting that view of ourselves in an honest open way to others. When we are truly humble and honest, people are not left guessing the intentions of our actions. They can trust us and the relationship can thrive. There is such a huge problem in America now with the breakdown of relationships because we can't trust anyone.

The entire retreat was narrowed down to one simple thing. If you want to be great, put others ahead of yourselves. Jesus was our perfect example on how to do this.

Am I the Only One?

I find it rather disturbing that the America and the rest of the world, are acting like Obama is the President now.  He does not take office until January 20th but that doesn't seem to matter to a lot of people.  I have already read about and heard a call to make him the President earlier than the 20th because we can't wait that long with Bush in the White House. 

Things just don't smell right to me.  As Luke Skywalker said said in Star Wars as they were approaching the Death Star, "I've got a bad feeling about this".

Reminder of the Cross

Today we went over Matthew 27 and the suffering that Jesus faced on the cross. Our Pastor reminded of us about Hebrews 12:1-4 which says:

...let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right had of the throne of God.

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.


As we get ready for the "fundamental change" in America that is riding in on a "righteous wind", we need to be more prepared than ever and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. Whether Barack Obama or John McCain gets elected, America is quickly going down a road that we have never dared to consider before.

In this election, Californians could break the dam that has been holding back the tidal wave that threatens the institution of marriage. Americans as a whole could elect officials who will take us into a place where Government has the ability to destroy the character of private citizens who dare ask questions. We could have a Government that will silence dissenting points of view and label God's Word as hate speech worth of prison time.

The Lord could spare us from all of this should that be His will for us but, like the Jewish people did in the time of Samuel, we are asking for a new king to replace our real King. God is being thrown out of all areas of our nation and we are looking to a man with a dark and mysterious past to bring us the "hope and change" we desire.

Hebrews tells us that Jesus went to the cross with joy and endured the shame and torture for us because He loves us. He loves us so much that, even though we are all huge sinners, He chose to give us real hope and change us from wicked sinners to righteous adopted sons and daughters of our Father in Heaven. That is the real hope and change we need.

As this passage goes on, we are told to consider what Jesus went through. He is God. He lived a perfect life and was completely sinless yet, sinners tortured Him in ways that very few people have ever come close to suffering. Though this book was written to the Jewish Christians in Paul's day, it very much pertains to us today as well. There is a word in verse 4 that is a little chilling in light of the current situation worldwide. "You have not YET resisted to bloodshed.

Do we have the faith to be strong in our faith to the point of torture or even death? I don't know what God's plan for this election or the future of America is but I know what the Bible says. As we get closer to the final days, the world will get more hostile towards true followers of Christ. There is already evidence of that in other parts of the world where Christians are resisting to bloodshed. Christians in America have gotten very complacent and comfortable. We have had it very easy in this country and do not know what it is like to suffer for our faith.

No matter what happens on Tuesday night, now is not the time to be luke warm in your faith. Put your hope in Christ and He will change your life.

Why a Barack Obama Victory is OK

Last night was a great Bible study at church. It was a great reminder that God is in complete control and knows exactly what He is doing.

We went over Matthew 27 which is about the various trials Jesus went through after being betrayed by Judas, falsely accused by the Jewish leaders, and taken before Pontius Pilate. The end result of these trials resulted in Jesus being severely beaten to the point of death and crucified on a cross.

At any point, Jesus could have stopped this, killed every person who was doing this to Him saved humanity a different way. In the garden, before Judas betrayed Him, Jesus prayed that He would not have to go through this and that it could happen another way. He through a very important qualifier in there though. He prayed that the Father's will be done and not His own.

That is why a November 4th victory by Barack Obama will be ok. We don't know what God's exact plan is for this world. We know the outcome and we know some of the events that will take place, but we don't know exactly how we will get there. It is very likely that a Barack Obama Presidency will lead to some very dark and troubling times for this country. It is likely that our economy will greatly suffer. It is likely that we will be much more vulnerable to devistating attacks. It is likely that our society will be torn apart by issues such as abortion and homosexual marriage but we already know that the world will become more sinful until the Lord returns.

I have been praying every day that John McCain wins this election. He is an honorable man and a great American. I do not agree with everything he does and he would not be my first pick as President but he would not lead us down the path that Obama and the Democrats are about to.

God (specifically Jesus) was in complete control the entire time He was about to be brutally killed. He knew what was going to happen and He let it. It was His plan the entire time to suffer on the cross for our sins that night and was the event that led to the defeat of Satan. Satan thought he was going to win by killing the Messiah but little did he know, he was actually fulfilling the plan that the Messiah had laid out from the beginning.

We think we know what is going on, we think we know what is best but we see it from a limited perspective. Barack Obama and total Democrat control may be the worst thing possible for America's short term future but we do not see the entire picture. I trust that God knows what He is doing. I trust His plan and I accept whatever happens this coming Tuesday.

Life may be very difficult for us for a while, but remember, God is still in control.

I Don't Have Words to Express My Feelings on This

Here is an excerpt from a column written by Hilmar von Campe who, as a young boy, experienced first hand the evil of Hitler and the Nazis.

There are various ways to perform an abortion, but abortion is said to be more dangerous than childbirth. In a late-term partial-birth abortion, which is also used for advanced pregnancies, the cervix is dilated to allow passage of a ring forceps. A foot or lower leg is located and pulled into the vagina. The baby is extracted in breech fashion until the head is just inside the cervix. The baby's legs hang outside the woman's body. With the baby face down, scissors are plunged into the baby's head at the nape of the neck and spread open to enlarge the wound. A suction tip is inserted and the baby's brain is removed. The skull collapses and the baby is delivered. Sharp and suction curettage is continued until the walls of the womb are clean.

Suction aspiration is the most common method of abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. General or local anesthesia is given to the mother and her cervix is quickly dilated. A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife-edged tip) is inserted into the womb. This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube. The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces, which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded.

Another procedure is called Dilatation and Evacuation and is performed during the second trimester, 4-6 months of pregnancy. A pliers-like instrument is needed because the baby's bones are calcified, as is the skull. There is no anesthetic for the baby. The abortionist inserts the instrument into the uterus, seizes a leg or other part of the body and, with a twisting motion, tears it from the baby's body. This is repeated again and again. The spine must be snapped and the skull crushed to remove them.


The main premise of this article is not about the Nazis, but America and the road we are going down. We are facing an election that will have dire consequences should the wrong people get complete control of our government.

I love this

Our Tax System Explained: Bar Stool Economics

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.

The fifth would pay $1.

The sixth would pay $3.

The seventh would pay $7.

The eighth would pay $12.

The ninth would pay $18.

The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.


So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. 'Since you are all such good customers,' he said, 'I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.' Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free.

But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?'

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer.

So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).

The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).

The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).

The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).

The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).

The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).


Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

'I only got a dollar out of the $20,'declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,' but he got $10!'

'Yeah, that's right,' exclaimed the fifth man. 'I only saved a dollar, too.

It's unfair that he got ten times more than I got' 'That's true!!'

shouted the seventh man. 'Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!'

'Wait a minute,' yelled the first four men in unison. 'We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!'

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

Is God Giving Us Our "King"

When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as judges for Israel. The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. But his sons did not walk in his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice. So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, "You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have." But when they said, "Give us a king to lead us," this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD. And the LORD told him: "Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected Me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking Me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do." Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, "This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots … He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day."

But the people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles." When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. The LORD answered, "Listen to them and give them a king." (1 Samuel 8:1-22)


I have this sinking feeling that God is about to give into our demand for "change and hope" with Barack Obama. We are demanding a fundamental change in how America operates. We are demanding that we become more like other nations. We have rejected Jesus as our King and are looking to Barack Obama to save us from all of our problems.

I think change is coming. If it does, we can't complain about the outcome, we have been forewarned.

2 Timothy 4:3,4-For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

The Real McCain is Back.

For a while I thought the John McCain that drove Conservatives nuts and called evangelical Christians agents of intolerance had taken captive and replaced with a John McCain that would finally go after Democrats and make efforts to reach out to the people of his own party.

Well, the party is over and he keeps missing chance after chance to hit Obama hard.

He could go after Obama on his horrible judgement on who he associates with including Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and others. It seems that everyone he hangs around with hates America and blames us for all the troubles around the world.

He could go after Obama's radical view on abortion that includes an unwillingness to vote for a bill that would guarantee medical attention to a "fetus" who survived an abortion because it could be used to weaken a woman's "right to choose". Obama favors partial birth abortion and opposes parental notification laws.

He could go after Obama and the Democrats for their huge role in the current mess with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Much of this mess was created by those who pressured mortgage brokers into providing subprime loans to minorities and "working class" people so everyone could exercise their "right" to home ownership.

He could go after Obama on his constant reaction to bash his own country both at home and abroad. He answered a question about the existence of evil by talking about America while failing to mention the global Islamic threat we are at war with.

He could go after Obama for his support of homosexual marriage, though he denies it, and his willingness to destroy a societal tradition that has been around for thousands of years.

Instead of doing any of these things, he talks about earmarks and the greed of Wall Street. Those things are bad but come on, nobody is going to get passionate about them. McCain needs to convince as many people to not vote for Obama while giving those in his party something to vote for with him.

Just when I thought McCain was going to do this, the old John McCain that we all became greatly annoyed with came back.

If McCain blows it and Obama can find a way to "win" this election, we are in very big trouble. A party that is devoid of character and integrity will control the House, the Senate, the White House and the Courts and they will have the media nicely packaging their insanity for everyone on the nightly "news".

Americans, and John McCain, better wake up. The cancer that is festering in California will soon spread to the rest of the nation. We will be a nation ruled by courts. Businesses will be taxed out of existence or forced to leave the country in order to remain competitive and profitable. The will of the people will be rendered meaningless like it was in California with their decision to limit marriage to a man and a woman. Free speech will be in danger with the "Fairness Doctrine". Pastors will be in danger of hate crimes for teaching Biblical doctrines. The list goes on and on what will happen if all of those one's are given unrestrained power.

Obama's Friends


Obama likes to say that this is just a guy who lives in his neighborhood. Obama served on a committee for a foundation that Ayers was in charge of. He worked as a "community organizer" to help advance Ayers' "educational reform" that had the purpose of indoctrinating children to grow up and hate America.

He went to a church for 20 years and listened to a "Pastor" spew hatred about America and white Americans.

Sarah Palin is right, Barack Obama is not fit to be President. I hope America wakes up and realizes this before November 4th.

Tuesday

McCain better start going after Obama hard and let people know about his ties to radicals such as Bill Ayers and corrupt people like Rezko.

Great Video on Mortgage Crisis

This video was removed because of a claim by Warner Music. My hunch is that Google didn't want this on Youtube because they are in the Obama camp.

This sums it up nicely in 10 minutes on who is responsible for the problem we are in and why I am greatly concerned about who is "fixing" the problem.

I wonder why they would want to take this down. Watch it for yourself.



I can't believe what these people have done and what they continue to do to our country while having the audacity to blame the Republicans for everything and act as though they are trying to save us.

These people, led by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama and the rest are depraved, sick human beings who have no amount of character or integrity whatsoever.

My Take on the Debate

I actually heard the post debate discussion before watching the debate and heard a lot of people say that McCain won, Obama won and that they tied. After watching the debate re-run, I think a few things are very clear to anyone who has actually been following this entire campaign from the very beginning what seems like forever ago and even further back when Barack Obama gave his speech 4 years ago at John Kerry's convention.

The first part of the debate was basically left up to what your ideology is on economics. If you believe that government spends too much and needs to cut back on spending and wasteful earmarks as well as cutting the tax burden on individuals and businesses, then John McCain was the clear winner.

Barack Obama was the clear winner If you believe that it is the government's responsibility to provide tax payer health insurance for everyone, or that the government should be responsible for and should be paying for "early childhood education" rather than the parent taking that responsibility.

There was no real winner other than whom people perceived to be the winner on this one. There was a clear difference for voters though. John McCain believes in lessening the tax burden on Americans while cutting wasteful government spending. He has a record of doing just that and can back it up with achievements and sponsored bills.

Barack Obama has no record of doing anything he says he is going to do but he has proposed almost a trillion dollars of new spending on social programs that would greatly expand government involvement in almost every aspect of our lives while heavily taxing the very people that drive our economy and actually create jobs for Americans.

The foreign policy part of the debate had a very clear winner. Barack Obama has no clue what he is talking about and John McCain made that very apparent in each response to Obama's foolish naivety. He clearly rehearsed for this debate and spouted memorized talking points that often conflicted with his previous positions. He claimed tonight that he never suggested Presidential meetings with terrorist leaders without precondition but that is not true. He continues to fail in his recognition of the threat that Russian and China pose in suggesting that they would be our ally in preventing Iran from attaining nuclear weapons. Russia is actively assisting Iran in their quest to develop nuclear weapons. He also "misstated" his original position on the Russian/Georgian conflict by claiming that he initially condemned Russia's advancement into Georgia. In fact, he condemned both sides and said that they both needed to stop aggression. On his third try, he changed his position to that which John McCain had immediately stated.

Obama was also clueless on the history North Korea. The Clinton administration engaged in talk with NK and was assured that they were not seeking to develop nukes, all the while secretly developing them under our noses. This should be a clear indication that terrorist leaders lie when you talk to them but Obama wants to continue talking and asking Russia and China for backup.

The most disastrous portion of the debate for Obama came in the discussion of Iraq. He had no clue what General Petraeus said on the issue claiming that Afghanistan was the central front on the "War on Terror" though Petraeus has clearly stated that Iraq is the central front, a point that McCain made sure he pointed out. He also said that our troops performed greatly giving them credit for the success of the surge though just a few months ago gave all the credit to the Iraqi's. He passed off the presence of our troops as coincidental to the change of events and the decrease in attacks that took place in Iraq.

McCain took two opportunities to strongly go after Obama in order to expose how clueless he is on the security of our country. As a military man, he jumped on Obama for calling the surge a tactic rather than a strategy. His more damaging remark, and one of the few times that he looked annoyed and ticked off at Obama, came when he rhetorically asked if we would tell Iran, during meeting with no preconditions, "No you're not!" when they tell us that they are going to "Wipe Israel off the map."

There is no question who is better suited and ready for this job. The sad thing is that, while McCain clearly understands the economic and national security issues better, people will think Obama did a good job because he sounded good while giving his inconsistent rehearsed debate talking points.

Imagine an America where the leaders are Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. They would be the top four people running our country and the leaders of a party that are largely responsible for the mortgage crisis we are in. These morons helped create this mess and now they are the ones we are asking to fix it. My fear is that, while trying to pass a plan that helps the "poor victims" who purchased homes they had no business buying in order to create "fairness" in home ownership among low income and minorities, they will destroy our economy.

How in the world did these people get elected to lead our country?

News Flash to the Obama Team.

Sarah Palin is not running to be the President. She was selected to be the Vice President by the real Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain. We don't need to know what Palin's plan for the country is because she will not be running the country.

It really cracks me up, yet bugs me at the same time, that they keep comparing Obama to Palin. That is quite telling when it comes to the quality of the Democratic nominee. He is so weak that he does not even attempt to compare his qualifications to McCain but to his running mate. I have not heard one interview with Joe Biden to see what his view for the country is should something happen to Barack Obama since he also is a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

It is very pathetic that Obama's main reason for people to vote for him is that he is more qualified to be President (which is a stretch in its own right) than McCain's VP.

This interview by Charlie Gibson is so pathetic and continues to magnify the absurdity of the MSM and their blatant bias.

Did He Really Just Say That?

Dr. Andre Lalonde, executive vice-president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), told the Globe and Mail yesterday, "Palin's decision to keep her baby, knowing he would be born with the condition, may inadvertently influence other women who may lack the necessary emotional and financial support to do the same."


So, women who decided to give birth to their baby rather than kill their baby because he or she has Down Syndrome is a bad thing and will be blamed on Sarah Palin?

Unbelievable.

Huh?

Keep talking Joe Biden because the more you talk, the more you will reveal how insanely irrational and hypocritical your views are.

Biden said in an interview with Tom Brokaw:


No, what I voted against curtailing the right, criminalizing abortion. I voted against telling everyone else in the country that they have to accept my religiously based view that it's a moment of conception. There is a debate in our church, as Cardinal Egan would acknowledge, that's existed. Back in "Summa Theologia," when Thomas Aquinas wrote "Summa Theologia," he said there was no – it didn't occur until quickening, 40 days after conception. How am I going out and tell you, if you or anyone else that you must insist upon my view that is based on a matter of faith? And that's the reason I haven't. But then again, I also don't support a lot of other things. I don't support public, public funding. I don't, because that flips the burden. That's then telling me I have to accept a different view. This is a matter between a person's God, however they believe in God, their doctor and themselves in what is always a – and what we're going to be spending our time doing is making sure that we reduce considerably the amount of abortions that take place by providing the care, the assistance and the encouragement for people to be able to carry to term and to raise their children.


Biden says that life begins at different times depending on who is deciding and which god that person believes in. As a Catholic, shouldn't believe, Joe, that there is only one True and Living God or do you not believe that either? If you don't believe that the God of the Bible is the only real God, then are we really supposed to believe you when you say that you believe that life begins at conception? I believe that you are saying that you believe this because you saw what happened to Nancy Pelosi when she said the Church never made such a claim.

Even Tom Brokaw pointed out the hypocritical inconsistency of Biden's answer by asking him how he could say life begins at conception and vote to support abortion rights. How can someone who believes that life begins at conception vote to protect a persons right to destroy that life? Biden is either lying about his belief on when life begins or he believes that people have the right to murder unborn babies. He can't have it both ways.

My guess is that Biden is lying and he doesn't believe life begins at conception therefore doesn't really believe in the Catholic faith and is identifying himself as a Catholic to appear "religious". Catholics aren't stupid Joe and answers like that make you sound really bad. Keep talking.

I can't wait until he gets to debate the Barracuda.

Confused About Which Side God Was On

Last weekend, Michael Moore and some other Liberal loons were quick to say that God was on their side because he was sending a hurricane to possible kill more people in New Orleans and destroy their property in order to spite Republicans who were holding their convention in Minnesota.

As it turns out, the hurricane seems to have played to the Republican's favor since it allowed them to hold a convention without the physical presence of George Bush allowing John McCain to further distance himself from the incumbent President.  It also showed the leadership abilities of the current Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.  Hmm.

Does that mean that God was actually on the Republican's side by bringing this hurricane in as a chance for the Republicans to redeem themselves after Katrina?  Probably not.  Most likely it was just a hurricane that happened to hit shore on the first day of the convention because it is hurricane season and storms happen.

It does make for fun conversation though when nutballs like Michael Moore put their feet in their mouths and say dumb things like that.

Foreign Policy Experience

This is a very good article by Thomas Sowell about Sarah Palin's apparent lack of foreign policy experience and Joe Biden's apparent abundance of foreign policy experience.  It is a good read.

Obama is in Deep Trouble

I find it quite timely that Obama appeared on O'Reilly the night after Palin gave her speech to 37 million Americans. He is in complete panic mode now and was forced to go on The Factor. He is in such a downward spiral right now that he actually had to say to O'Reilly that the surge seceded, something that even Katie Couric pleaded with him to admit while on his Eurepean Magic Mystery Tour (as Michael Medved calls it).

Now that his mystic has run out and his magic has waned, he goes crawling to Fox News, something he never would have done had John McCain not selected Sarah Palin.

McCain's speech tonight was not one that will be recorded among the greatest of campaign acceptance speeches. It never flowed well because of several left wing nutcase protesters who decided it was their duty to interrupt this great American who has done more that most people could dream of to protect the free speech rights that they use to display their absolute stupidity. He has faced the evil that he is calling on our young men and women to fight against. It was, however, genuine, from the heart, and filled with what he has done and what he will do if elected to the highest office in the land.

This speech did one thing, and that was to show America the stark contrast between our choices. John McCain is a great American who was completely broken as a young man. He had his pride and youthful arrogance literally beaten out of him and was remade in a Vietnamese prison cell. His campaign motto, Country First, was born in that cell because that is all he had. he had to put his country first and withstand the torture he faced and not give in to the pain and suffering to provide information to the enemy that would be used to hurt his country and fellow Americans. He took this with him into the Senate and has demonstrated this by aggravating fellow Republicans time and again.

Barack Obama has faced nothing like this in his life. He is young, he is good looking, he has been a politician practically his entire career. He doesn't know what it is like to struggle in the face of great adversity like John McCain does. He has not stared the evil threat we face as a nation as John McCain has.

Barack Obama, in his youthful arrogance, believes Americans need a savior. He believes that he can heal the world and bring peace to all nations simply by his words. We don't need a savior. As one Congresswoman stated, we already have a Savior who died for us 2000 years ago. Americans need a leader. One who will not force us to live the life Obama believes is best, but one who will keep government out of our way as much as possible so we can pursue the life we believe is best for us. John McCain had that youthful arrogance that believes he knows what is best for us taken away from him. McCain may not be the best candidate we could have nominated but he is a great man and he has earned the right to lead this country.

The speech wasn't great, but the choice is clear.
