GLAAD's Tolerance: Agree Or You Are Anti-Gay

GLAAD is a militant intolerant tyrannical homosexual group which by its words and actions espouses a philosophy where persons absolutely must believe their way about homosexuals to be considered tolerant. If you are a public figure and believe differently than GLAAD they will cause a ruckus at your place of employment, try to get you fired, and put you on their blacklist. GLAAD has no concept of disagreeing while being civil. Most everyone, if not all, in conservative punditry espouse their own views but don't go after particular public figures trying to get them fired for them believing differently.  Liberty loving conservatives/libertarians try to persuade others to change their views with words, not with threats, coercion, intimidation or force.

Then there are some spineless Republicans, journalists, and others in conservative circles who have either fallen for GLAAD's perverted interpretation of what constitutes tolerance or are scared sh*tless so they believe its defamation to speak negatively about homosexuality. Courage is required to stand up to these fascists. The timid either need to shut the hell up if there not going to stand up for liberty or reach down deep inside themselves and gain some courage and stand up for freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Robert Oscar Lopez of American Thinker explains what happened to him when he was blacklisted by GLAAD:

I won't hyperlink this, but if you go to GLAAD's website and seek out their "commentator accountability project," you will find my name.  This is GLAAD's blacklist.  Within hours of GLAAD's publication of my addition to the list, which amounts to an excommunication from polite society, an e-mail was sent to the president of my university, along with dozens of other high officials in California, with the announcement: ROBERT OSCAR LOPEZ PLACED ON GLAAD WATCH LIST.The e-mail stated clearly that as a result of my being placed on this list, I would never get a direct interview in the United States.  (Whoever "they" are, they made good on the threat, because when I was brought onto Al Jazeera, they made sure that I was the only one critical of gay adoption, versus two hosts and two other panelists who were for it, and the host cut my microphone.)According to the press release sent to my university, any media outlet introducing me would be bound to introduce me as an "anti-gay activist" certified by GLAAD as a bigot.  When I read the claims of this e-mail, I wondered if this would be true -- would media in the United States really introduce me by saying I was certified as "anti-gay" by GLAAD? 
Well, the answer to that question remains mostly unanswered.  Aside from that one fling on Al Jazeera, since GLAAD placed me on their blacklist, no secular media outlet has invited me on its show in the United States.  In-depth interviews with me have been broadcast in Chile, Russia, France, Ireland, and a number of other nations.  In the United States, Christian broadcasters like the American Family Association and Frank Sontag's "Faith and Reason" show in Los Angeles have interviewed me.  And I'd been interviewed, prior to the GLAAD blacklisting, by Minnesota affiliates of NBC, CBS, Fox, and NPR, as well as a number of newspapers.  Since GLAAD's blacklisting, none. 
Prior to GLAAD's blacklisting, I had received calls from people at universities discussing their interest in having me come to campus and give speeches.  Three were working with me to set up dates.  Since GLAAD's blacklisting, none.  Those who had discussed this with me said point-blank that their superiors did not want to create controversy. 
That is the power of GLAAD.

Pope Francis' Christmas Message

"On this night, let us share the joy of the Gospel. God loves us. He so loves us that he gave us his son to be our brother, to be light in our darkness. To us the Lord repeats, 'Do not be afraid,' ... And I, too, repeat, do not be afraid,'" the Pope said.
"Our Father is patient. He loves us, he gives us Jesus to guide us on the way which leads to the promised land. Jesus is the light who brightened the darkness. Our Father forgives always. He is our peace and light." 
He called on the throngs gathered at St. Peter's Basilica to cast aside hatred. "God is light and in him there is no darkness at all. Yet on the part of the people, there are times of both light and darkness, fidelity and infidelity, obedience and rebellion, times of being a pilgrim people, and times of being a people adrift," the Pope said. "In our personal history, too, there are both bright and dark moments, lights and shadows. If we love God and our brothers and sisters, we walk in the light. But if our heart is closed, if we are dominated by pride, deceit, self-seeking, then darkness falls within us, and around us. Whoever hates his brother -- writes the Apostle John -- is in the darkness; he walks in the darkness, and does not know the way to go, because the darkness has blinded his eyes."

Pope Francis Celebrates First Christmas Eve Mass at Vatican
"You are immense, and you made yourself small; you are rich, and you made yourself poor; you are all-powerful and you made yourself vulnerable," Francis said of Jesus as he delivered his homily in the basilica, packed with faithful.

Do government health regulations cause hunger?

On December 5th Pope Francis had a private audience with leaders of  “Movimiento de Trabajadores Excluidos” (Excluded Workers Movement) of Argentina where he said: 

 “We are living in a throwaway culture where we easily leave over things, but people as well,” the Pope said.
“You recycle and with this, two things are produced: an ecological work, which is necessary, and on the other hand, a production that promotes brotherhood and gives dignity to one’s work, you are creative in your production, but also creative in caring for the earth, of the world in this ecological dimension.”
Wasted food, he continued, “can feed all the hungry people in the world.”
“Be conscious that food should not be wasted, because there are children who are hungry. Thank you for what you do,” he said.

After thinking a bit I came up with this question -- Do government health regulations cause hunger, leave the poor hungry?  

I don't know how it is elsewhere, but in the United States restaurants are required to throw away all their food at the end of the night. The health departments regulations forbid restaurants from donating this food. If it wasn't for government regulations we could have solved the problem of feeding the hungry at least in the U.S.

So, hence excessive govt. regulations causes hunger.

NM Teacher Scrooge and Racist?

A teacher in New Mexico told his students that they could dress up as Santa, elves, or reindeer. A black student came to class dressed as Santa and the teacher said"What are you doing wearing a Santa Clause outfit? Don't you know that Santa Claus is white?" 

Is this teacher stupid? Does he have no common sense? Is he a rude humbug Scrooge? Racist? An ignorant insensitive, hurtful moron?  

The teacher shouldn't have said a damn word criticizing the student. The students were asked to dress up as one of three Christmas characters and the black student dressed up as Santa. So what if Santa is portrayed as white. The activity sounds like it encouraged creativity, imagination, and fun.  The teacher ruined the spirit of the project. Bah humbug! 

I think this teacher is ALL of the above.  To me, what he said to the student sounds racist. I'm not sure there is any other way to take what he stated.  

The teacher did apologize and was put on paid administrative leave. Here is a statement from the director of Rio Rancho Public Schools: 
"This situation involves a teacher recently hired by Cleveland High who made -- and admits he made -- a stupid mistake," the director said. "The remark was inappropriate and should not have been made. The teacher feels very badly about what occurred. He self-reported the incident to the principal and has apologized to the student and to the student's parent. Appropriate disciplinary action has been taken."

Michael Rougier, the student's dad, believes the teacher should be fired.  The teacher has apologized to both the student and his father, and has been put on leave so anything more would be taking this incident out of proportion IMO.

One more thought: Maybe the teacher misspoke stupidly and really isn't racist. But his statement certainly shows a racist tendency.

Jon Stewart on NSA Spying

Jon Stewart is spot on!! The Obama administration said that the NSA wasn't spying on U.S. citizens and it is. So that would be considered a lie. Not surprised.

Topless Feminut Mob Attacks Argentina Cathedral and Catholic Praying Defenders

Topless pro-abortion feminuts attacked a group of people who prayed while they stood in front of the Catholic cathedral in San Juan, Argentina in order to protect the cathedral. The radical feminists sexually harassed the men, drew Hitler mustaches on their faces, and spray painted their clothes, faces, and crotch areas. The men did not budge. They stood bravely defending the Faith. God Bless them.

Why do Left-Wing loons feel the need to attack others in public?  Why do radical feminuts feel they must act out writing perverted crap on people who were simply praying and protecting a Cathedral?  What is so hard about acting responsibly, being respectful of others, and discussing their position peacefully?  The fact that these pro-abortion feminists wanted to vandalize and desecrate Catholic churches and they burned an effigy of Pope Francis is abominable, Christianophobia, and intolerant. It would be good if people would be civilized human beings instead of acting like cavewomen.

Turkey to Toys

I hope everyone had a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving holiday yesterday. Enjoyed the yummy turkey , sweet potatoes, corn, mashed potatoes, green been casserole, pumpkin pie and more? Anyone brave the crowds and go out on Black Friday? I have been thinking about how toys have changed over the last 35 years. My favorite toys were Barbies, the Memory game, and Transformers. What were your favorite toys growing up?

Has President Obama Committed Serial Fraud?

Andrew McCarthy a top lawyer who prosecuted the bombers after the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center appeared on the Kelly Files and said:

If ever there has been a fraud on the entire American people it’s this one. And, I would say, Megyn, this business about, “you want your plan, you keep your plan,” is just the beginning of it… We’re talking about serial fraud on multiple levels and multiple level misrepresentations… This is an ‘in your face’ almost a crude fraud… The remedy the Framers gave us for reigning in executive excess especially if it gets this abusive is impeachment. Impeachment is a political remedy not a legal remedy… This is a big scandalous scheme and the more you look at it, systematic dishonesty is rife all the way through it.”

Former Federal Reserve Official Admits BIG Problems With QE

There's a real question as to whether the massive bond-buying program known as quantitative easing was worth the cost, former Federal Reserve official Andrew Huszar said Tuesday.
"I think the real issue is that the Fed has expanded its tool kit so dramatically, and really there are some real questions as to how potentially it unwinds, when it unwinds," he said. "We saw this past summer there was this announcement of potentially a taper and the markets actually tanked, and after that the Fed backpedaled. What's going to happen if we go on for months, years longer?"

In an Op-ed in the WSJ written by Andrew Huszar he says
I can only say: I'm sorry, America. As a former Federal Reserve official, I was responsible for executing the centerpiece program of the Fed's first plunge into the bond-buying experiment known as quantitative easing. The central bank continues to spin QE as a tool for helping Main Street. But I've come to recognize the program for what it really is: the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time.
Huszar and a number of other Fed managers expressed concern that QE wasn't working the way it was supposed to. But nobody listened. So Wall Street was given a huge advantage under QE earning a huge bundle of dough from commissions and reaped the rewards of gigantic capital gains on rising values of securities holdings. Unfortunately QE didn't help the average U.S. taxpayer one iota. This is a very good reason not to mess with the free-market system. When government tries to manipulate the outcome in the market it only ends up making the problem worse. Now it is going to take a long time for the market to level out and be normal because it was screwed with for political purposes. says that the Fed and Wall Street are in collusion and I agree. QE needs to end immediately. The Fed wasted $4 trillion on QE which produced meager results.

Book Recommendation: Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls

Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls: A Novel of International Intrigue, Pork-Crazed Termites, and Motherhood by Gary Buslik is a great book that I really enjoyed reading.  It is political comedy, satire, and drama all rolled into one.  The first page had me totally laughing my butt off. If you want to or need a laugh this book is for you. The book is full of intrigue, having you wondering what's going to happen next. This book is great and hilarious. I highly recommend you read Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls

Here is the description from Amazon

Iranian president Akhmed teams up with the leaders of Venezuela and Cuba and their American intelligence agents to smuggle radioactive matzo balls into Miami Beach. But intelligence being as slippery a concept to these nincompoops as chicken fat on linoleum, when each member of the gang decides to ladle out his own personal nuke soup, holy terror Akhmed is left steaming. Will his plan to destroy America float like a fly or sink like a lead dumpling?
Star-crossed lovers, conniving academics, and blustery social climbers collide with ravenous termites, international do-badders, and multi-level marketing in a plot as fast-paced and hilarious as a runaway mountain bus. Radioactivity has never been so much fun.

Obama Knew and Lied

President Obama knew as early as 2010 that Obamacare would force 40-67% of people from the individual health insurance market out of their plans.... but not one peep of this came out of President Obama's mouth. He repeatedly made the claim that insurance would be grandfathered in and that you could keep your same doctor that you've been going to before Obamacare existed after the health care law was implemented. This was a selling point in Obama getting support for the ACA from some of the citizens. Plus he repeatedly said this during the 2012 campaign. It's not all that surprising that the Obama administration hid the truth from the American people. Top Democrat Steny Hoyer admitted that Democrats and the President knew that people would not be able to keep their current health care plans.

“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Another claim for selling the ACA is it would lessen health care costs for the consumer.  Unfortunately that also isn't true. Many citizens are being required to pay an additional 20% at the very least. Here is the Aetna CEO on CNBC explaining why health insurance costs are rising dramatically.

Flashback to Obama saying....

Megyn Kelly goes off on Democrat over citizens losing health insurance coverage since President Obama promised that every person who had health insurance were going to be able to keep their plans after Obamacare was instituted.

Obama Admin's Misleads; Gives Cost Estimates Lower than Actual Price

From CBS: 
Jonathan Wu is co-founder of, a consumer finance website focusing on the impact of health care reform. His company has built a tool that provides quotes for plans on the federal exchange. He said it's "incredibly misleading for people that are trying to get a sense of what they're paying."
Prices for everyone in the 49-or-under group are based on what a 27-year-old would pay. In the 50-or-older group, prices are based on what a 50-year-old would pay.
CBS News ran the numbers for a 48-year-old in Charlotte, N.C., ineligible for subsidies. According to, she would pay $231 a month, but the actual plan on Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's website costs $360, more than 50 percent higher. The difference: Blue Cross and Blue Shield requests your birthday before providing more accurate estimates.
The numbers for older Americans are even more striking. A 62-year-old in Charlotte looking for the same basic plan would get a price estimate on the government website of $394. The actual price is $634.
A U.S. Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman said the government added the "shop and browse" feature to provide "estimates of premiums without tax credits."
Chini Krishnan is the chief executive officer of His company helped designCalifornia's new health-care-exchange website. It requires people to enter their birthdays to get a real price quote. Krishnan said, "It's important that the users have a proper, trustworthy, honest brand experience when they interact with, and I think providing accurate prices is an integral component of that."

Miscellaneous Meanderings

I haven't been feeling well and still don't feel well but I didn't want to go any longer without posting so here are a few thoughts on a couple articles as well as a video posted below.  

In What Obama and the Tea Party have in common by George F. Will, Will claims that both Obama and the tea party have "disdain for the practice of politics within the Framers’ institutional architecture."  By this George Will is mainly referring to compromise but also to the separation of powers. 

In my opinion George Will is both correct and incorrect.  Correct in the fact that neither the Tea Party or Obama likes to compromise.  But incorrect since by compromising we have strayed so far from what the Framers' built in the United States - the train has derailed off the tracks, crashed, and now needs to be rebuilt - that it is important that the Tea Party espouse and defend the constitution and not cede any more power and control to those who believe in progressivism, European socialism.  

Sarah Palin says: "Today, doesn't it seem like we have a Corrupt Bastards Club in D.C.? On steroids? It might not be as oily and obvious as its Alaska counterpart, but it’s just as compromised because its members, too, are indifferent to what their actions mean for We the People." 

What we have witnessed is the bastardization of politics by GOP establishment and Democrats over the past decade. In addition we have witnessed the bastardization of our health care system over the past 4 or 5 years thanks to progressives as well as the GOP establishment who are weak- kneed "be reasonable, don't offend the other side" defeatist cowards.  Instead of the GOP standing united the GOP was fractured because of the establishment who abandoned camp and in their cowardly fashion supported the Democrats who stood firm and made it known that they were unwilling to budge, no compromise for them.  Even when it the prerogative of the House to fund or refuse to fund whatever part of the government they decide. Please do go over to read the rest of Palin's article on the establishment and Obamacare. It is a great article.  Yep Folks what we have is the Corrupt Bastards Club in D.C.

Sen. Coburn Investigates Social Security Disability

I have some pertinent thoughts on this since I have filed an appeal for social security disability benefits. On Sunday I watched 60 Minutes which had a segment on the investigation into disability benefits, into the reasons for the substantial increase in the number of people receiving disability benefits. I was really heartened when I heard Sen. Tom Coburn say that "we ought to err on the side of someone being potentially disabled" and give them benefits.

One problem which was discussed is the number of disability lawyers advertising, the amount of money they earn from the federal government representing people who have been denied benefits on the first try, whether the lawyers are gaming the system by representing and getting benefits for clients who aren't really truly considered "disabled", meaning being unable to perform some type of job.

The problem with claiming these lawyers are overpaid or that they may be gaming the system is that the government's system for deciding who is considered "disabled" is flawed to begin with. About 80% of the people who apply for Disability benefits are denied the first time they apply for benefits. The only individuals who are approved are the very obvious ones with severe physical impairments. So in fact the government has created the need for these lawyers.  If you are unable to see the person's ailment, for example if you're not in a wheel chair or didn't have a stroke or heart condition which affects your speech, walking, and use of limbs then you are not going to be approved the first time.  I am in the being disapproved after the first try category.  I was advised to hire a lawyer so I have done so. A huge problem is that whoever in the government decides whether you get approved or not assume that if you look or seem to be okay then you are okay.  That is a wrongheaded assumption.

I never thought that I would be applying for Disability but I am. I don't want to be on disability but this is the way it must be for now.  I had a hysterectomy for my endometriosis thinking that it would substantially ease my pain. The surgery helped for about 3 months then the extreme pain came back.  I suffer from depression due to having the hysterectomy at 35 and having no kids. I suffer from some anxiety and other symptoms cause of surgical menopause. My red blood cells are too big and the doctors are having trouble figuring out the reason. This causes me to be dizzy, have the shakes in my hands and arms, and fatigue. I also have bad migraines or cluster headaches where for three days I have to lay down and am unable to eat very much. Then in April I started hurting very very badly in my bones and joints all over my body. Finally my doctors have figured out that its fibromyalgia. In the video the claim is that there are subjective symptoms in  fibromayalgia and I guess that could be true for some symptoms, to some degree a few of the symptoms but at least some aren't subjective. Migraine headaches, vomiting from the migraine, and when a doctor examines your joints and/or bones and can tell that you are in extreme pain then your pain can be verifiable.

There probably is a small amount of disability applicants and lawyers gaming the system but anything can be abused and usually is by a few.  Heck things like cough medicine and white out are misused. In addition to me you can't look at a piece of paper and claim to know whether that person is disabled or not disabled. I am going to update my skills and work on me a while - work on healing, treating symptoms - then I will be able to head back to work. But at this time there is no possible way I can work. I consider myself lucky when I don't have much pain which is only maybe 2 days per month.

Brian Aitken possessed firearms legally did not break any laws but was sent to prison

First of all the judge is a stupid imbecile who needs to be stripped of his position as judge.  A massive injustice was committed and it wasn't about falling through the cracks but it looks like the judge did this intentionally and ignored laws. Second, let's help Brian have his case heard in front of the Supreme Court by buying his book. Third, this case should alarm any gun owner, especially those moving across state lines.  This whole situation is F*cked up (sorry about the language but this pisses me off, the fact that a moron judge abused his power). He screwed with someone's life and now Brian is unable to see his son. We need to make sure this type of malevolent injustice NEVER happens again. Thank goodness that Governor Christie commuted his sentence after Brian having served 4 months. 

From LibertyGlobe: 

Brian Aitken is a normal, law abiding citizen; at the time of his arrest he still had student loans, a wife and a young child. 
Everything changed when he was arrested and sent to serve time for something which was actually legal. 
While he was moving from Colorado to New Jersey, Brian was pulled over and had his vehicle searched despite not being suspected of a crime. In the car he had two locked, unloaded and legally purchased firearms. The law specifically outlines an exemption clause which allows the transportation of legally owned firearms while in the process of moving. During the trial, the jury even asked the judge 3 times if they could rule based on this law but the requests were denied! 
Brian was sentenced to 7 years for doing something that was legal, he was not breaking the law, he fell victim to a judge applying the rules how he saw fit. Thankfully, the governor of New Jersey released Brian early, but the NJ supreme court refuses to hear his case and his status as a convicted felon means he cannot see his son.
He is now raising money for a book through Indiegogo which he well then use the proceeds of to take his case to the US Supreme Court. No matter what side you are on in the gun control debate, this is a case of severe injustice.

Struggling... Health update with links, bits, and pieces

I haven't been around the blogosphere the past week or two. I have been struggling quite a bit lately since the one year anniversary of my hysterectomy was on September 24. Very sad. Plus I am still having a lot of problems with my health.  I still have endo pain and bad bone and joint pain.  Plus I have very little energy. My doctors are pretty sure that I have fibromyalgia. One of my prescriptions has changed. This one is supposed to help out with my joint and bone pain. Really hoping it helps. In addition I've been thinking over whether I need to have a bone marrow biopsy done to figure out why my red blood cells are too big since the other blood tests were fine.  

Apparently a star studded cast has just finished with a movie shoot for a film called PERSECUTION which will be out in Spring 2014. . The movie Persecuted will cover topics such as government scandal, corruption, and religious persecution.

PERSECUTED is the story of a modern-day evangelist named John Luther, played by SAG Award-nominated and Saturn Award winning actor James Remar (X-Men: First Class, Dexter, Django: Unchained, What Lies Beneath, RED, Cotton Club). Luther is the last hold out for a national endorsement to make sweeping reform in freedom of speech. As the government is mandating political correctness while covertly waging a war against religious organizations, a U.S. Senator, portrayed by Oscar-nominated actor Bruce Davison (X-Men, Lost, Castle), and his political allies create a sinister plan of denial and scandal to frame John Luther for murder. Suddenly his once normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive vowing to expose those responsible. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the moral ethics and freedoms of America. 
"I hope people come out of the theater asking the question: what would you do if you faced persecution for your beliefs? We're living in a generation that has been raised to believe there's no such thing as truth, and a world that is tired of the games the church has been playing for its own agenda. I hope to wake up a world that takes freedom and truth for granted; I hope this movie shakes people up," said writer, director and producer Daniel Lusko.  
PERSECUTED cast includes Dean Stockwell (Air Force One, The Manchurian Candidate, Star Trek), Fred Thompson (Law & Order, Die Hard 2, Hunt for Red October, No Way Out), Brad Stine (recognized as God's Comic by The New Yorker magazine, social commentator on Fox & Friends, Marriage Retreat) Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto, Cowboys and Aliens, The New World), Natalie Grant (five-time Dove Award-winning singer and songwriter) and Gretchen Carlson (Fox News). 

This sounds like a good movie.

Senator Ted Cruz mounted a laudable 21 hour sorta filibuster against Obamacare funding in the budget. Obamacare has been a nightmare so far and it's only going to get worse. Obamacare is not patient centered health care. Repeal Obamacare!!!  Then Congress needs to pass common sense legislation which really makes health care affordable while keeping the great health care that we have in the USA. Health care that doesn't control our lives and that respects our religious beliefs.

Ted Cruz told Limbaugh "the single biggest surprise in arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here. We don't even talk about how to win a fight. There's no discussion.
"We talk about, 'Hey, let's get a show vote so we can go tell our constituents we're doing something,'" Cruz added. "But I promise you, Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, you'd be in therapy for a month."
In the Obamacare fight specifically, it has led Republicans to fear battling Senate Democrats, even causing some collusion between the parties, Cruz said.

Many Republicans representing their constituencies are doing the least possible to fight against Obamacare implementation. They are spineless weaklings who just care about going around to get along and don't care about stopping the worst health care in American history.

Lee Stranahan asks for help to tell stories of Christian Syrian Refugees

Lee Stranahan has written an open letter to bloggers & citizen journalists:

Dear Colleagues,

On Saturday September 7th, I announced that I was trying to go to the Middle East  to cover the plight of Christian refugees. I think the situation in that part of the world is grave for Christians and the story is being underreported. The story is so big and so important, that I want to make sure as many people as possible are able to talk about it.
That’s where you come in.
I’m planning to report about what I find for my job at Breitbart News, of course, but because I’m crowd funding this trip independently, I’m able to do some thing that may help you in yourreporting.
My goal is to gather hours of raw material, both audio and video as well as photos. I’m focusing on people’s stories; what it’s like to be a Christian in the Middle East right now, how they escaped and what they hope happens next.
Here’s What’s Happening For Bloggers
  • I’m going to make all the raw audio, video and photos I gather available to you free under a Creative Commons license.
  • If you have questions you’d like me to ask Christian refugees, send them to me at I’m not going to promise I’ll ask them all (for obvious reasons) but I’ll try and I will credit you. Please pick your best question or two.
  • I will be available for interviews or questions, both before and after the trip.
If there’s anything else I can do to help you, please let me know.
Please help spread the word about this to your readers. Link to my fundraising page. 
This is a historic chance for citizen journalists to make a difference on a breaking international story. 
Lee Stranahan is undertaking a noble endeavor and he will be in my thoughts and prayers.  I wish I could donate to help him but because of my health issues and my not working finances are real tight. But if there is any other way for me to aid him I will offer my services. God Bless his mission.

Limbaugh announces his new book Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims

Rush had been encouraged and prodded by Vince Flynn to write another book for quite some time. Then one day his wife came up with the idea of a children's book to help kids know the history of America.  The whole title of Limbaugh's new book is Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans .  

What an excellent idea!!  There are so many kids across the country being fed the wrong information about America and her founding. This book will help educate kids about genuine American history, not the fabricated crap, revisionist history, that many progressives dish out to indoctrinate students into a me me me government owes me something mentality. Kathryn and Rush are awesome! 

Vince said to Rush: "Well, why don't you put together a compilation?  Look at all the monologues you've done on the radio and you've preserved all of them on your website. You could get somebody to edit those things and put together three or four books of some of your greatest monologues, each one a chapter."  It's a great idea, but I never moved forward on it.  And then out of the blue... well, the timeline is kind of sketchy on this, but my wife, Kathryn, in conjunction with Vince's entreaties to me, came up with an idea that literally lit a fire under me. 
She said, "You know, you're always talking about how history is being mistaught.  You're right.  You're always talking about what kids are learning these days, and they're not learning about the greatness of America.  They're not learning about the founding days. They're not learning the right things about the people, the great people, the exceptional people who founded this country."  And she said, "Why don't you write a book for kids? A series of books for kids, maybe -- see how the first one goes -- that sets the record straight on American history."
And so that is what has happened.  And what we have done, we have brought to life Rush Revere, our character at Two If By Tea.  And we have today the ability to announce to you a book that is aimed for everybody, but it's for kids, to learn the truth about the very early and beginning days of this country, but it is a book for everybody to buy.  Everybody has kids in school, and they're worried sick about what they're learning.  And some of you don't know what to do, how to counter what your kids are being taught, and so Rush Revere to the rescue here.  
Now, I don't want to give away the book.  Remember, it's a kids book, but you get the book and you read it with them or you read it to them or you have them read it.  It's for everybody.  I don't want to give an age-group here because I don't want to exclude anybody, 'cause the book is for everybody, but it's written for young people, and it's written honestly, and it does not have an agenda.  It's just the truthful history of the Pilgrims, who they were, where they came from, why they came here, what happened when they got here.  The true story of Thanksgiving.  There's no politics in this.  Ages 10 to 13, something like that, is the age group it's written for, but it's for everybody.  CONTINUED

 The book comes out October 29th. I'm going to purchase at least one book for my nieces and nephews. Go and pre-order your book today.

Martyrs Blessed John Francis Burte and Companions Feast Day -- History Revisited Upon Us?

I receive a Saint of the Day email in my inbox each day. Blessed John Francis Burte and his companions are the saints recognized today. These particular saints were martyred for their faith. The historical significance behind their deaths, that is the reason behind their deaths, jumped out at me since I saw a number of similarities between what is happening at the present time in the United States and with what happened to these priests during the French Revolution. The motto of the French Revolution was "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" and I see history being revisited upon us today under the guise of "equality" and "diversity".  

These priests were victims of the French Revolution. Though their martyrdom spans a period of several years, they stand together in the Church’s memory because they all gave their lives for the same principle. The Civil Constitution of the Clergy (1791) required all priests to take an oath which amounted to a denial of the faith. Each of these men refused and was executed.
John Francis Burté became a Franciscan at 16 and after ordination taught theology to the young friars. Later he was guardian of the large Conventual friary in Paris until he was arrested and held in the convent of the Carmelites.
Appolinaris of Posat was born in 1739 in Switzerland. He joined the Capuchins and acquired a reputation as an excellent preacher, confessor and instructor of clerics. Sent to the East as a missionary, he was in Paris studying Oriental languages when the French Revolution began. Refusing the oath, he was swiftly arrested and detained in the Carmelite convent.
Severin Girault, a member of the Third Order Regular, was a chaplain for a group of sisters in Paris. Imprisoned with the others, he was the first to die in the slaughter at the convent.
These three plus 182 others—including several bishops and many religious and diocesan priests—were massacred at the Carmelite house in Paris on September 2, 1792. They were beatified in 1926.
John Baptist Triquerie, born in 1737, entered the Conventual Franciscans. He was chaplain and confessor of Poor Clare monasteries in three cities before he was arrested for refusing to take the oath. He and 13 diocesan priests were guillotined in Laval on January 21, 1794. He was beatified in 1955.

"Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" was the motto of the French Revolution. If individuals have "inalienable rights," as the Declaration of Independence states, these must come not from the agreement of society (which can be very fragile) but directly from God. Do we believe that? Do we act on it?

“The upheaval which occurred in France toward the close of the 18th century wrought havoc in all things sacred and profane and vented its fury against the Church and her ministers. Unscrupulous men came to power who concealed their hatred for the Church under the deceptive guise of philosophy.... It seemed that the times of the early persecutions had returned. The Church, spotless bride of Christ, became resplendent with bright new crowns of martyrdom” (Acts of Martyrdom).

Health Update with News Links, Bits, Pieces and Sorta Rule 5

I haven't been visiting blogs much or posting much lately because I haven't been feeling well. My pain has increased so much to the point that a good portion of the time my strong pain meds don't even relieve my pain that much.  In addition to my endo pain I also have pretty bad joint and bone pain. So far the docs can't figure out what's causing the pain. Plus my red blood cells are too big which cause some other symptoms but the doctors are having trouble figuring the cause of that. I have quite a few people in my life whom I am so ever grateful for knowing. I will hopefully be able to visit your blogs bit by bit this weekend.

From the AP: 
The intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no "slam dunk," with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria's chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether Assad himself ordered the strike, U.S. intelligence officials say.
So it's no slam dunk. I am NOT for going into Syria at all but if President Obama decides to use our military in Syria he should sure as hell make 100% sure that chemical weapons are linked to Assad.

Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain faced quite a bit of backlash over his rushed response so now he is backing down, saying that he will wait for a report from the United Nations.

The only black U.S. Senator, Tim Scott, wan't invited to the event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech. I believe ALL of the speakers at the commemoration were Democrats. The commemoration excluded African Americans who don't believe The Democrat Way.  And they want everyone else to be inclusionary? Huh! So much for MLK's message for unity and his standing up against discrimination being honored. To discriminate and exclude when celebrating MLK's accomplishments is like giving his legacy a middle finger.

Fast food workers across the country went on strike yesterday to demand higher wages. At present minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. They are demanding to be paid $15 per hour.  First of all these are not jobs where you have to be skilled. Second, do they really want to pay at the very least double what they are paying now for food items at fast food restaurants?  Third, these types of jobs were created for teenagers and those in college, not people trying to raise a family. Fourth, there are plenty of people who get second jobs to help pay for things. Fifth, this is one more reason for women to keep their legs closed, wait to meet a great guy and start a family.

Did Obama Admin Authorize Chemical Weapon Attack To Frame Assad?

Yahoo has just posted news of leaked documents which show that the Obama administration gave a green light to a plan that would use Qatar to fund the rebels in Syria to use chemical weapons. Then this would spur military action from the U.S. and garner support from other countries in the West as well. Apparently within the documents there is an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence which authorized this scheme.  I don't know whether the claims being made are accurate or false.  Would our peace prize president tarnish his award by conjuring up a plan to get the U.S. into another war?

New Mexico Court Says Christian Photographers Must Compromise Their Beliefs

A New Mexico court says F you to Christian photographers religious beliefs. A New Mexico court says that the Christian photographers must violate their beliefs, violate their consciences.  From now on they are going to be forced to photograph at gay ceremonies. The court says they must compromise their beliefs. Bullshit! 

What about the gay couple respecting the beliefs of the Christian photographers?  The judge obviously has a warped interpretation of the Constitution and religious freedom.  The gay couple did find another photographer so what's the big deal?  This case shows the vindictive nature of homosexual activists.

Alliance Defending Freedom is the legal firm defending the photographers. Their attorney Jordan Lorence said they are considering appealing to the Supreme Court. I hope they do.

The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled Thursday that two Christian photographers who declined to photograph a same-sex union violated the state’s Human Rights Act. One justice said the photographers were “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.”
In 2006 Vanessa Willock asked Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, owners of Elane Photography, to photograph a same-sex “commitment ceremony” in the town of Taos. 
Huguenin and her husband declined the job because their Christian beliefs were in conflict with the message communicated by the ceremony. 
Willock found another photographer at a cheaper price but nevertheless filed a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission accusing Elane Photography of discrimination based on sexual orientation. She was later found guilty and ordered to pay thousands of dollars in fines. 
Bosson said the Christian photographers are now “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.” 
A recent Rasmussen survey found that 85 percent of Americans support the right of a photographer to refuse participating in a same-sex wedding. 
Attorney Jordan Lorence said the ruling in effect means gay rights now trump religious rights. 
“Government-coerced expression is a feature of dictatorships that has no place in a free country,” Lorence said. “This decision is a blow to our client and every American’s right to live free.” 
Lorence said the New Mexico Supreme Court undermined the constitutionally protected freedoms of expression and conscience. 
“If Elane Photographer does not have her rights of conscience protected, then basically nobody does,” he told Fox News. “What you have here is the government punishing someone who says, ‘I, in good conscience, cannot communicate the messages of this wedding.’” 
Ken Klukowsi, of the Family Research Council, called the ruling profoundly disturbing. 
“This decision may bring to Americans’ attention the serious threat to religious liberty posed by overbearing government agencies when it comes to redefining marriage,” he said. “Rather than live and let live, this is forcing religious Americans to violate the basic teachings of their faith or lose their jobs.” 
“This is very coercive, very authoritarian to crush those who do not agree and make public examples of them – and in a free society, that simply should not be,” he said.

This is one more example of how citizens religious freedom is under assault in the U.S.
