Never Say, Too Late
Sat, April 30, 2011 | link NEVER SAY: “TOO LATE”!
folks in this “Great Generation,” considering freedoms we’ve lost,
up one sad day and considered what the loss of all freedoms might cost!
We gathered together and pondered what steps we could take, now, to save
The much-valued freedoms
some squander for free hand-outs, cradle to grave.
When folks say: “Too late,” I say: “No way; while life lasts it’s never
My ancestors’ blood surges in me, defies fatalism’s
As brave ones, we will
not surrender our God-given right to be free
To live on the fruits of our labor, take our chances, with no guarantee!
Judging our liberty foremost of the rights our Forefathers
banding together in protest of widespread disregard for the Law!
The rights in the first Ten Amendments, without which all else would have failed,
Are the sticking-point
now for defenders of the Document that then prevailed.
The question that President
Lincoln set forth in his famous Address,
Has, once again, come front-and-center, in this time of our Nation’s great stress.
Can this nation, conceived with true freedom as the
basis of government’s goal,
That all men are created equal, not meant for another’s control --
A proposal with true dedication, a noble concept never
In all the
past history of mankind -- will continuance now be denied?
Will men of true
faith and conviction risk all in this Battle for Right?
Will women stand, shoulder-to-shoulder, hold aloft Lady Liberty’s Light?
Will the slothful become energetic, take responsibility
For self-support, seeking
employment, if able-bodied they be?
With all who produce robbed by taxes, “sharing” more than they could afford,
With all stripped to poverty’s level, what will
be socialism’s reward?
Will we be like those gone before us who rose to the
crises they faced,
to give in or surrender, stood for causes on righteousness based?
No matter what odds were against them, resisted with all of their might,
Gave the last measure of their devotion, pressed on
in the battle for right.
our voices arise in crescendo, till the Congress and President hear,
power to the States and the people, restoring our freedoms so dear!
The tyranny others now
suffer by ignoring such warning signs clear,
Should cause us to Stop! Look! And listen! To recognize crisis is near!
Turn back from the brink of disaster, consider our
ways and be wise,
the temptation to squander the brief time we have, and arise
To accomplish the task now before us, believing our Cause to be just.
As we take God’s side in this crisis, in His
power we surely can trust!

What is Happening to Our Freedoms
Sun, July 5, 2009 | link
HAPPENING TO OUR FREEDOMS?
The USA is not a democracy, per se: it is a democratic-republic, but Historian
Alexander Tytler's comment applies: "A democracy...can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can
vote themselves largesse out of the public treasury. From that
moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits…”
Those who do so are undermining our free-enterprise, individual-initiative system, which made America “The
last best hope of humanity.”
Politicians who cater to such greed in order to achieve increased personal power must
be thrown out of office, lest our freedoms be forever lost. Long ago Lord Acton said truly: “Power corrupts,
and absolute power corrupts absolutely!”
Our Government, established with checks and balances by our wise Founding Fathers, has been undermined.
Too many of the watchmen on our Nation’s walls have abandoned their responsibilities and surrendered our security to
the “me first, gratification now” generation, bankrupting the future.
It’s time for a new
generation of Heroes for Freedom! The hour is too late to go along with whatever comes along, just
to get along.
“The pen is mightier than the sword,” and
we must not surrender our American heritage! It’s time for serious, non-violent resistance! Let truth, individual honesty,
integrity, and strength of character rule our words and our actions! Are you willing to enlist in the Cause of restoring our
Nation’s Founding Documents and principles?
Don't wait till the next election! Get involved
now, to enlist candidates for the primaries who are dedicated to "a new birth of freedom...that government
of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Someone who
was there witnessed that Abraham Lincoln's emphasis was on "the people," not the government!
Participate in the election process now, to whatever extent
you are able, and don't by shy. Contact your neighbors, and alert them to become involved. It's their future, as well, that
must concern us! All who value liberty must become pro-active, or be responsible by default for the Government's continued
disdain for our cherished freedoms, purchased by the life-blood of so many patriots!
Contact your local, city, county, state, and national representatives. Call, write, and email them. Organize
your thoughts on paper before phoning, and be courteous but firm, in order to be effective.
Let your concerns be known
in logical sequence. Build a case against the wrongs that concern you, and stand your ground, like the Minute Men at the Concord
Bridge! Like George Washington and his beleaguered men at Valley
Forge. Like the brave men at Fort Mc Henry, and the sailors aboard the USS Constitution,
“Old Ironsides,” against the Barbary Pirates!
Historian Tytler concluded his evaluation:
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
As of today, we have survived
33 years past the average. Let’s extend that “life expectancy” by abandoning “the Silent
Majority,” and becoming “the Vocal Majority.” Speak up for
Free Enterprise, Fiscal Responsibility, and Individual Initiative at every
It’s never too late to resist those who would rob us of our freedoms. If no opportunity presents
itself, speak up and create one! Never give up, and never, never NEVER give in!

Jonah's Prophecy Now!
If Jonah came to your land, as to Nineveh that day,
Tue, November 25, 2008 | link
And cried aloud in prophet-tones, with words you heard him say:
“In forty days (one month plus ten) your land will be no more,”
Would you believe the warning of that man, just put ashore,
Transported by a great
fish (three days and nights within),
Because he’d run away from God, and suffered for his
Perhaps he wore a loincloth of seaweed, wrapped and tied,
Because of human modesty, his nakedness to hide.
Perhaps his skin was
ashen-grey, from stomach acids there,
As he floated midst the items of the fish’s dinner
Did the pagan ones of Nineveh mistake him for Neptune,
A god they may have worshipped, why they heeded him so soon?
As day-by-day, from dawn to dusk (it took three days to cross),
Old Jonah cried aloud
to spare the people from great loss.
At first the hearers questioned: “Just who is
this crazy one
Who cries out such outrageous threats each day from sun
”But then his words began to penetrate their minds and hearts,
As one-by-one some then believed, on streets, in homes, in marts.
More and more believed his words, and the king was told at last;
the matter in his hands and called a total fast:
“Not old nor
young, not man nor beast, shall anything partake;
Perchance, by deep humility,
this grievous curse we’ll break.
Let man and beast wear sackcloth, and no violence be found;
Let all cry mightily to God, from evil ways turn round…
“Perchance His anger will abate, His wrath be turned away
When He sees we are repentant and mean just what we pray.”
He rose up from his
royal throne and laid aside his robe,
Then clothed himself in rough sackcloth; the ash heap his
God saw their deep contrition, how they heeded Jonah’s
Withheld His hand of judgment and forgave them, one and all.
As in the days of Nineveh, that city wide and great,
America must now repent, before it is too late.
God’s boundless grace is
offered now wherever sins abound,
But mercy is not endless where repentance can’t be
Who knows if forty days, or weeks, or months will yet elapse
Between today and judgment, His protective wall’s collapse?
In fact, who knows if only forty hours yet remain
Til heart attack, an accident, foul play, or stroke of brain
May snuff out life,
or render one incapable of thought.
Perhaps the time is very
short, and yet we know it not,
If forty minutes, even seconds, be our futures’ length,
Let all repent…relinquish sin, so God can give new strength!

Compare Election Result Maps showing Electoral
Compare the Election Results Maps of the last three Presidential Elections. The Map of
the 2008 Election results by State and County varies little from the Map of the 2004 Election results and the Map of the 2000 Election results.
Check out the Election Result Maps, starting with
2000. Compare, and then You do the Math. See if you can figure out what happened in 2008.

And Speaking of Change
Tue, November 4, 2008 | link
FYI: A Recording just surfaced, with Obama telling the San Francisco Chronicle how the Coal Industry will go under. Hannity and Colms clip on YouTube has the story.
Obama said, "If someone wants to build a coal powered plant, they can. It's just it will
bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."
Then he states: "When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal
- uhh. Under my plan of a cap and trade system, the electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."
During the primaries Obama assured the folk in the four highest coal producing states that "totally supports coal miners",
yet his plan will crush the economy of those very states and the entire nation. Can anyone afford his promised
skyrocketing energy prices. So, what happened to that moving promise? (It must be more of his policy for CHANGE.)
Watch it Now.
