It is very easy to lose focus or put our attention on many things that, though important, aren’t the most important thing in the world. This country is in dire need to turn around and return to our foundation of the Constitution and Biblical principles. I am convinced that we will not survive, as a nation, much longer down this path. Our freedoms are threatened. Our bank accounts, income, and jobs are threatened. Our very way of life is on the line. Yet, while these things are VERY important and should not be ignored, it is that time of year to bring something else to the forefront and consider what is the most important.
Each individual. You and where you are spiritually.
Just as our beloved country is in dire need to be saved so is each of us, no exceptions. Whether you believe in God, or not . . . whether you believe Jesus is the son of God, or not . . . . no matter what you believe . . . we are all equals in that. We are sinful and in dire need of a savior. We have no way of being good enough, on our own, of making it into Heaven, so we need a savior. That is what we remember at Christmas: the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in the humble form of a baby, to live a perfect, sinless life and be offered as the sacrifice on the cross that would pay the debt of sin. While his love and sacrifice covers everyone, it is an individual thing. Had you been the only person created, He still would have given His life for you. He paid the debt of sin for you and for me so that we can have a right relationship with God and spend eternity with Him in Heaven. It all began in that barn that night in Bethlehem. I’ve chosen to accept His gift of life. What do you choose?
To bring it back to the country, if we all turn back to Him, we can revive the life of this great nation. That is what it will take. No government. No government program, no amount of “stimulus money” to be printed . . . nothing, except turning back to Him.
I pray you and your families have a blessed Christmas. That you know Him and, if you don’t know Him, that you seek Him and come to know Him. Now, I leave you with a television clip that would never be allowed to be made these days and it gives us the true Christmas story.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
It seems everyone continues talking about “gun control.” So, I’ll add some more thoughts and a personal story to the mix. For all of you who have followed U.R., you know I am pro gun. For me, “gun control” is basically shot placement. It’s about shooting a tight grouping. For liberals, “gun control” means stripping away people’s right to defend themselves against the always armed criminals and giving criminals free reign. What this type of non-sense does is make citizens subjects . . . subject to the government that wants to disarm them and subject to the merciless criminal one may encounter at any time. I don’t know about you, but I consider myself a citizen, not a subject, of the United States of America and am not subject to anyone but God. To paraphrase Ted Nugent, I do not need a document or anybody to tell me when, where, and how I can protect my own right to live. The government doesn’t defend me from dirtbags. I defend myself. And that’s how it will remain.
As the mindless left continues on, pontificating about how the “culture of violence” must be stopped, or we must end the “gun culture”, or whatever false, moronic phrase one wishes to insert, I must point out the idiocy and hypocrisy of them, once again. Does it matter to anyone that the leftists whine and moan about how tragic it is that those 20 children were killed in Connecticut last weekend, yet they push for abortion on demand? I guess the millions of aborted babies aren’t real or don’t matter. Don’t forget, these same liberals claim to want to have that “discussion” on gun violence and all that surrounds it . . . cool, let’s talk about it. How about we talk about arming Mexican drug cartels and letting all of those guns walk across the border and get used in murders (fast and furious)? How about we talk about this administration running guns into Libya, then we have some of those used on us in Benghazi? Guns aren’t the problem – it’s the good or evil person that uses it and the purpose for which he uses it. Back to the moronic liberals – these same people constantly whine about how gun owners are violent criminals (which is a complete lie), yet THEY are the ones who are violent and hateful. These same people that want to do away with guns (because that will surely end all violence), made multiple calls for NRA leadership and all NRA members to be lined up and shot in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. Tweets were seen that said the following:
“All NRA members should be shot!!!! I thank you, that’s one of my own!!” – Sam Tarling
“Someone should shoot this motherf***er NRA President David Keene weighs in on 2012 election – Glenn Beck – Michael Mayer (this one doesn’t even make sense . .. I have no idea what he was trying to tie to Beck)
“Solution: Get every member of the NRA to stand in a circle, aim & shoot!” – Very frustrated Pete
Stay classy, libs.
Here’s the deal, none of this is about stopping any kind of violence. Of their 2 word phrase (gun control), they’ve got one of them correct: control. The left will use any situation to push its agenda at the expense of the situation and those involved. In this case, they want to disarm American citizens. Why? Because then they can have free reign to do what they want without fear of repercussion or uprisings. This is the exact type of government/tyranny that the 2nd Amendment was intended for in the founders’ masterpiece. It is to protect us from tyrannical government should the need arise.
By the way, if you want more information on why we should be even more armed (as if all the crime and tyranny aren’t enough) check out this article on how China is jumping on the bandwagon, calling for Americans to be disarmed. Not only do they want strict gun laws, they twist the truth about crimes to their people, aka propaganda, to push their political agenda and get the reaction they want. How so? Much like the liberals do here . . . by misrepresenting facts such as failing to tell people that most of the crimes committed with a gun are in “gun free zones” or in places with very strict gun laws. Do you think China’s biggest concern is the Connecticut tragedy? (Answer: No.)
I don’t want to dwell on that too much here, so let me switch gears a bit. I know how they can reduce crime and violence. The solution is easy. Reduce crime by going after criminals. Instead of focusing on criminals, they are coming after law abiding citizens and giving criminals free reign. As I said in my last entry, and as logic dictates, what makes a criminal a criminal is the breaking of the law. Any legislation means nothing to criminals – only law abiding citizens. Instead of punishing us and dictating how, where, and when we can protect our own lives, how about going after the dirtbag criminals?! Get the criminals off the street and enforce the laws that are already in the books. That will solve the problem! Done. Now, to another part of this mess . . .
There was a church shooting several years ago, I think it was 1998 or ’99 at Wedgewood Baptist Church in Ft. Worth, TX. Some of you may recall that. I don’t remember all the specifics, but suffice it to say, it was a night where a youth rally was going on at the church, a crazy person walked in and started shooting. A friend of mine, Shawn Brown, was a youth minister at this rally. He confronted the shooter and was shot and killed at point blank range. The criminal took the lives of several others that night, too. When I heard the news, I was sad and angry at the same time. At no point did I EVER think that we have a gun problem and that guns need to be taken away. My thought was, “Why did no one at the church have a gun and stop this lunatic?” How different would it have been if a law abiding citizen was armed and could have stopped the maniac as soon as he raised his gun? How many of those lives lost could have been saved had someone been there to stop it. Instead, when the only armed person is a criminal, the unarmed people can only hope they aren’t the ones getting hit.
Does a gun promote violence? No and it is absolutely stupid and irresponsible to say that it does. We’ve gone over this in previous posts. It’s an issue of evil – of what is in a person’s heart. Go read the previous post and click the links. In the meantime, let me share with you what I told someone fairly recently about my own experience. We were talking about carrying a concealed weapon. She, jokingly, stated that her husband might not want her carrying anything in case she loses her temper with an idiot. Again, that was very much in joking and sarcasm. She is not that kind of person and would not “snap” like that. As we laughed, I told her my view and said that it actually helps me be more aware and responsible. Because I am a law abiding citizen and do not want to have any kind of accident that could harm those around me, I am careful about where I go and what I do. I am friendly in my interactions with people and try to avoid being in places and situations that could be harmful. I know that a bad move on my part could cost me my right to carry and defend myself against a crazy person and I don’t want to jeopardize that. So, again, it helps me be more careful, mindful, and responsible while out. I have never had a violent thought because of gun ownership or concealed carry. However, it does give me a little more confidence and peace of mind to know that if the unfortunate happens, I have a chance, at the very least.
Here’s my theory: Most people that are scared of guns and believe that the mere existence of a firearm is the source of violence have never been around any guns. They’ve never learned about them, never used them, never done anything with them. They only hold their views based on presumption, intolerance, politics and complete ignorance. May I challenge any anti-gun liberal who is reading this, find someone you know who is a shooter and allow them to educate you. Spend some time researching facts about crimes, including those that have been stopped by an armed citizen. Learn the use of the gun and, by all means, go to a range and learn how to shoot it. You’ll soon understand the fun of hitting your target and the feel of the gun. If you don’t like it, fine. I have no problem with that, but please try to learn and experience what you can so you can have an objective view. For you gun lovers, perhaps you can find an anti-gun friend or relative to educate. While this anti-gun spirit is so prevalent right now, start having the discussion with people and educate them on how great, fun, and safe guns are (in the hands of law abiding citizens). If possible, take them to the range with you. I am convinced that if you cure the epidemic of ignorance among the left, that might help things a little, too. My dad is not a collector, but he’s always had some around. When I was young, he taught me to shoot and taught me gun safety. I was raised to understand them and to respect them. I knew where they were “hidden” growing up but never had the urge to play with them and do anything stupid, because I respected them. However, if anyone were to break in while I was home alone, I knew what to do. The biggest issue is ignorance. With education and truth comes understanding and liberty.
By the way, a co-worker sent me this graph the other day. It sites 3 official sources, but I don’t know where it originated or who did it. So, I don’t know if it’s 100% accurate. Whatever the case, feel free to verify it if you want. I leave you with this for today. Thanks and go spend some time at the range this weekend!

Hello everyone! I have not been as regular writing lately, but I’ll admit that it is more of a challenge to write now than it was when I started the blog last spring. When I started this, I was at a job where I was on my feet all day. So, coming home and sitting at the computer was easy. Now, I have a job where I sit at a computer all day :) It’s great, but when I come home, I don’t always want to continue sitting at a computer. So, it is easier for me to do the research and talk about it rather than write a lot. However, I’ll continue as I am able.
My main point is about the podcast. I have purposefully refrained from badgering everyone to contribute to the continuation of the podcast. I put the fundraiser up and have posted a couple of small reminders here and there, but that’s it. Perhaps I should have done more, but I have trusted that if you really do want the podcast to continue, as I do, maybe the support would come. Well, I am here today saying that, as I type this, there is just about 35 hours left on the fundraiser and I only have one pledge. Simply put, this thing cannot start up again without your support. Unless a miracle happens in the next day or so, it’s not looking good. I’d love to do it, I just cannot make it happen on my own.
So, it’s up to you, friends. If you want it to continue, please see what you can do to help. If 99 people pledge $20, then we’re golden! That’s not bad. If you can, please click here to go to the site and pledge. Nobody’s card is charged unless the “tilt” amount is met, which is $2000.00.
Whatever happens, thank you for reading.
Never let a good crisis go to waste. – Rahm Emanuel
It’s been a couple of days since the Connecticut tragedy and, as usual after such a horrific event, I must interject some truth and common sense. First off, to all of you in the Newtown area, know that we are with you in spirit. We pray for you to be able to work through all of this, by the grace of God. We pray you will look to Him for whatever answers and comfort you need . . . not look to any harmful or false answers. It is heartbreaking and we wish you the best as you try to pick up the pieces.
Being that I have no spouse or children, I can’t quite identify with the level of pain that the good folks in CT are dealing with. It is impossible for me to have the same depth of empathy as those who are parents. So, please understand that I empathize and hurt for everyone up there, but I can’t even begin to know what they are experiencing. My focus in this column is not to dig into the lives of the people up there or try to understand the mind of the killer. Today, I want to provide some perspective and address the absolute irresponsibility and politicizing by this administration as well as the sheer idiocy of the left and the complicit media.
We all know that the left criticizes conservatives and accuses us of knee-jerk reactions and politicizing such atrocities. It is, in fact, the left that does this. As usual, they will do exactly what they accuse conservatives of doing and tell their mindless, sheepish followers what they should say . . . and the stupid sheep follow. Within hours – I think it was about 4.5 hours – of last Friday’s shooting, dictator obama was on tv telling everyone how “inaction” was not an option and that he would take “meaningful actions” to make sure that this kind of thing no longer happens. Before that even occurred, the idiots at MSNBC were already clamoring for massive gun control laws and gun bans. Last night, when I just wanted to watch a little bit of Sunday Night Football, mr. dictator was on tv, again, whining again, on the need for gun control, though he never used that actual term. He, also, put the emphasis on the collective raising our children rather than mentioning any type of individual responsibility, or freedom for that matter.
As much as it seems necessary, I don’t want to beat you down with the exact same thing I have stated before. If you want to know what the founders intended regarding the 2nd amendment, as well as how Britain fares after banning guns, read this past entry. If you want to know more of what I previously said on the subject, check this one out. For today, I’ll keep it a little more simple and take it another direction.
First off, what makes a criminal a criminal? The thing that gives a criminal such a label is the breaking of the law. That is it. So, if criminals are the ones committing violent crimes, what good can it possibly do to pass all kinds of anti-gun legislation? It won’t make one ounce of difference! Well, no it will, too. It will make violent massacres and crimes that much easier because law-abiding citizens will not be able to defend themselves from such dirtbags. Forgive me for any liberals reading this, but I must use facts . . . those pesky things that you ignore: where there are more restrictive gun laws, crime is higher than where the citizens are able to defend themselves. Look at Detroit, D.C., Chicago . . . for crying out loud, look at “gun-free zones” such as schools and any other establishment that prohibits anyone having a firearm on them. That doesn’t do anything except make law-abiding citizens a free buffet to the always armed criminal. Also, for more facts and things to read up on, check out this article from Breitbart.
Another question, if I were sitting next to someone in a room, stood up, picked up my chair and bludgeoned them to death, what would your reaction be? Is it possible that the chair did it? Is there any chance that the chair was evil and caused me to stand up and commit that act? NO, it is NOT possible and I’m sure that anyone . . . even a liberal . . . would blame ME, not the chair. The blame would be all on me for being a violent or crazed lunatic who took an innocent person’s life. If it’s not the chair’s fault in my illustration, why does the left insist on mindlessly blaming an inanimate object in “gun crimes.” A gun is just as much a tool as a chair, or any other object one might use to inflict harm on someone else. Since the left is so convinced that no crime would exist if guns were taken away, I wonder if it matters that the same day this school shooting happened, 22 elementary students in China were injured by a crazy man with a knife. Strangely enough, no one blames the knife or calls for “knife control” or to ban such things.
We do not have a “gun culture” as some misinformed idiots suggest. We have an evil culture. Evil is real. Evil exists and is prevalent in our culture. You can never legislate against evil. That is a moral issue . . . a spiritual issue. No legislation will help, but will undoubtedly make law-abiding citizens in harm’s way of a violent lunatic more probable. So, how do we fix evil? The heart of the citizenry must change. We must return to our foundation and return to God. Bigger government and more legislation NEVER works and that is a proven fact.
We live in a society, now, that has chosen to kick God out of everything. This culture no longer teaches kids right from wrong. Rather, kids are taught that everything is ok, as long as you don’t hurt other people. There is no absolute truth or right or wrong. Kids are wussified into thinking that everybody deserves a prize . . . . even if you’re the slowest person in the race, you’re still treated like you won the race when we all know you didn’t. That has softened people and, I believe, helped foster the overwhelming sense of entitlement we see today. People are so fragile, with no foundation of Truth and no sense of right and wrong. Personal responsibility is not taught, but rather, blaming everything and everyone around oneself. Here’s a fact: every crime is the responsibility of the criminal that does it, not the object or tools used to commit it.
Speaking of responsibility, have you ever noticed that in every crime committed with a gun, the gun is blamed. However, when a law-abiding-citizen stops a criminal with a gun, it is the person that is heralded as the hero . . . not the gun. So, how can an inanimate object be the evil cause of violence in one instance, but merely an inanimate object in another? That’s asinine and the left knows it. I believe that this whole “gun control” charade has nothing to do with actual stopping crimes (since it has proven to fail every time . . . kind of like every other Marxist idea throughout history). I believe, however, it has been part of this administration’s agenda to disarm America and weaken us to make us into a socialist nation. Don’t fall for it, America! It’s bullcrap of the highest order. Don’t be quick to give up freedom for something that the government cannot give . . . safety. We protect ourselves. If you choose to discuss things with your enemy rather than use a gun, that is your decision. More power to you. I choose to be evenly matched. Nothing will change until we get back to God and have a standard of Truth, understanding right and wrong and teaching such things to our kids.
I guarantee this will fix a lot of the problem. Violence will still happen because evil does exist. However, I truly believe we will see a change in the heart of our nation if we return to Truth, a standard of morality, and an understanding of right and wrong.

I trust that everyone had a good Thanksgiving and that you have survived the ridiculousness of “Black Friday” and the beginning of the commercialized Christmas season. This is the time of year that I am usually reflective on more spiritual things, where I am as a person, where this country is, etc. I deliberately avoid any shopping or unnecessary errands other than grocery shopping. I used to get caught up in getting that “great deal” and used to do my Christmas shopping whenever I could – even if that meant at the last minute. However, I have changed in recent years. Now, I get my shopping done early and utilize ordering stuff to avoid being in the crowds of crazies. Then, I can relax and focus on more important things . . . as should be the case from the beginning.
We have become more and more commercialized and materialistic, as a society. Personally, I’m sick of it. We are about to be forced into another term with an administration who does not like America as we know it, nor do they acknowledge God in anything. To my knowledge, Obama has now made it through 4 Thanksgiving statements without a single reference to God. As I stated in my Thanksgiving series (go back and read the 2nd part if you haven’t already), Thanksgiving is ALL about God and cannot exist apart from Him. However, it seems this administration thinks they are gods so I shouldn’t be too surprised. Alas, society seems to keep going on the wrong path. One look at the Drudge Report today, I saw a list of headlines from Black Friday chaos around the country. I know it has always been a madhouse, but it just seems to keep getting worse. Here’s a small screen shot of what I saw today:
You can go to the Drudge Report and click on any one of those links and read the actual stories.
Then, for more links and commentary, The Economic Collapse Blog posted this story. I’d recommend you read over it, just to see what they say. They make a great point in this by stating, “If people are willing to riot to save money on a cell phone, what would they be willing to do to feed their families? Are the Black Friday riots a very small preview of the civil unrest that is coming when society eventually breaks down?” Then, a little later, they write, “In the end, it is not that big of a deal that people want to fight with one another to save 50 dollars on a cell phone. But this kind of extreme selfishness and desperation could become a massive problem someday if society breaks down and suddenly millions of extremely selfish and desperate people are scrambling for survival.”
Do people realize the state of the country? Does the general public have any idea how bad off we are and how close we are to an economic collapse? To make things worse, I saw this story on Breitbart about Occupy Wall Street’s plan, heavily pushed by Frances Fox Piven. The entire goal of OWS is to bring down the American financial system and, now, they’re saying they can do this by complete lawlessness. Some of it will be blatant, I’m sure, but some of it is fraudulent and is basic lying about everything – especially when it comes to bills. In fact, they now have their own manual that tells them how to deal with debt matters in their own life . . . fraudulently. That manual is referenced and linked in Breitbart’s story. However, if you want to read it without going to another page, you can download it here.
If you’ve been an Unapologetically Right reader for a while, you know, a while back, I said that OWS is not done and they will be back. So, let’s say they succeed. Or, shoot, even if they fail again, what if something else triggers our economy to collapse. What then? As the Economic Collapse Blog questions, if people get so stupid, irresponsible, and desperate to save a couple of bucks on crap that has no meaning, how much more lawless and crazy will things get if they need to feed themselves and their family? Something to think about – not only in regard to crazy people, but yourself. Are you prepared for the unfortunate? Are you able to be self sufficient enough that if the government offers help, will you be able to wave them off and not be enslaved to them?
More importantly, as the title of this entry states, who are we becoming? Have we moved so far off the tracks that we have no idea what’s important any more? This seems to really be an upside world, now. That is no longer a cliche, but it seems to be reality! Where have our values gone? Where has our general respect gone? Where has our acknowledgment of and love for God gone? Where has our patriotism gone? Who are we?
I don’t know about you, but I know where my heart is and it is nowhere near where this movement or this administration is going. We can only fix society by fixing ourselves, then, hopefully, influence others. However, as I have stated a million times before, no change will ever happen apart from God. We have to get back to our foundation, America! This is a good time of the year to be reflecting and seeing what needs to change in our own lives. Let’s do it and stand strong.

Finally, after 3 days of trying to get Crowdtilt to communicate with Facebook, a simple suggestion from one Crowdtilt’s customer service folks did the trick. (Thank you, again, Angela.) Now that things have been linked up, I can announce to you that the Unapologetically Right fundraiser has begun and will run through Wednesday, December 19th at 6 pm. As I have mentioned before, if you believe in what Unapologetically Right stands for and if you enjoy the podcast (or at least believe it has a place out there), please help bring the podcast back. As I mentioned in the previous post, I simply do not have the means of doing it on my own these days. If we come together, it can be done! Please give what you can, there is no minimum.
My minimum goal is $2,000 and specifics are laid out in the previous post. If we can raise more than that, then all the better! That just helps things that much more! Please know, if you do give, your card will NOT be charged until the minimum goal is reached. So, if the end of the campaign arrives and we have not reached $2,000, no one’s card will be charged anything . .. nothing lost, so there is no risk if things don’t pan out. As long as we pass it and as soon as I get the equipment, I will post copies of all receipts so you will know where every penny is spent. Also, please know that U.R. is not set up as a “real” organization of any kind, so any contributions are not tax deductible, unfortunately.
I hope this to be the only fundraiser we do, so please spread the word! After you give, share this post, share links, whatever you can do! The more people that help, the sooner we can get this rolling again, and the less it will take from each person!
Are you in? Click here to help us out.
Thank you again for any help in getting the show back up!
I have purposefully allowed several days to pass while I watch headlines and see what would transpire after freedom’s defeat in last week’s election. I have already posted my thoughts on that matter and a full week has passed. I thought it would be fun to watch the headlines and see what happens around the world, and in our own “backyard” as everyone could see that America is on the path to a quick suicide. You may have been keeping up, as I have, so not much of this may be new to you. However, let’s look back at the past week and see what has happened in our world and contemplate the direction of our country. For the record, I am not even including the big ticket items of the ridiculous Benghazi cover-up, or the Petraus onion-layered scandal. So, in no particular order, let’s notice a few things.
Within hours of the election being called, the Obama team was quick to let the U.N. know they are ready to resume talks about passing the U.N. small arms treaty. You remember that, right? That’s the “treaty” that would prohibit – or severely limit – us from helping our allies (such as Israel). It, also, opens the door for our Constitutional law, our nation’s sovereignty, and our personal rights to be subject to the U.N . . . meaning, it could be an open door for further U.N. restrictions on personal gun ownership . . . on an extreme level, some believe it could lead to global gun registration and confiscation. That’s fantastic. (sarcasm)
Many people would agree with this commentary from WND in stating that the Constitution lost in the election. Yeah, and so did freedom, the unborn, the “pursuit of happiness” without being taxed out the wazzoo, etc.
The day after the election, I remember seeing the report that Iran fired on one of our drones . . . prior to the election, but that word was kept from the public until afterwards. Here’s another take on it from Breitbart. Makes sense that Iran would be so bold. They have no reason to fear us or take us seriously these days.
The biggest thing that this election should have been based on was being “cool,” racial groups, economic classes and female body parts . . . oh, no, wait a minute . . . that’s what it ended up focusing on. What it SHOULD have been about was the economy. Since we are continuing on the exact same fiscal path that has proven to fail throughout history, can you think of anything that has happened regarding the economy or jobs in the past week? Well, for starters, here’s this little ditty from the Washington Times about companies planning big layoffs due to Obamacare. Here’s one from The Blaze that has a small list of companies that announced layoffs or closings the day after Obama’s re-election. The Washington Post reports on a business owner who got his employees together, read a prayer, then announced the layoffs. One Utah company had to layoff 102 workers because of Obama’s policies. The Economic Collapse Blog joined in the fun, too, and gave us another listing of post-election layoffs and firings . Who knew there was this much turmoil? I mean, we’ve been told by this administration and the media that everything is ok . . . that we’re improving. This almost seems like business owners were waiting for the election because there might have been hope to stay in business if we had someone in office that wasn’t trying to kill all things American! That can’t be, though, right? I mean, everybody loves Obama . . . he is the great unifier and he’s pretty much messiah status, right?
So, is it only business owners that give us an indication of the road we travel economically? Nope. Just today, I saw where the Chinese yuan hit a record high against the dollar. Marc Faber, CNBC economist, warns us to prepare for a “massive market meltdown.” I can see that coming, too. Just one more thing that I find significant, and interesting, a Montana state lawmaker has so little confidence in our economy and currency that he has asked to be paid in gold, according to Politico. If everything is on the up and up, why get out of our currency and ask to be paid in gold?
And, hey, kids, that’s not all. Here are a few bonus nuggets from the week! Remember when Obama told Medvedev to ask Putin for more patience so he can have all of that “flexibility” after the election? Well, none of us really knows what he meant, although we can probably guess it’s not good and certainly not in favor of America. Maybe this is it, maybe not, but good ol’ Puty-Put has invited Obama to meet with him and guess what? He’s going! Obama can never seem to find the time to meet with an ally like Israel, but he’ll go meet with Putin and other commie dictators. Here’s the story from the Weekly Standard.
Would you say that freedom requires more government regulation or less? That seems obvious to me, but this administration goes on and on about the middle class, about American jobs, about getting people back to work, about freedom and the American dream . . . well, can you believe that they keep ratcheting up the number of regulations they’re cranking out?! Who knew that would come from this administration with all of their positive rhetoric? I mean, according to Breitbart, they have been posting 68 new regulations/notices per day for the past 3 months. I’m just guessing, but I’d bet that they’re just getting started, you know, because of all of the extra flexibility! That is truly the sign of a freedom loving American President, no? Who the heck can keep up with that??!
Finally, I know I mentioned Israel a bit ago. We all know that Obama and this administration hate Israel – it’s obvious in their actions and body language when around Netanyahu. Does that disdain rub off on Obama supporters? Check out this video from The Blaze, of an Obama supporter and his hate for the Jews.
I’m telling you, folks, I don’t even recognize this country any more. We are truly upside down and this administration is on the wrong side of every issue. Apparently, that includes a lot of citizenry, too. There is only one way to fix it – a return to God, which means a return to our foundation. I’ll just go ahead and say that I believe we are in for a rough 4 years. I hope you are prepared for whatever may come. Whatever comes, though, I will keep doing what I can to point out things going on, offer encouragement, and remind us of our history so we can have a path to find our way back!

This week’s podcast is ready to go! We take a slight detour this week and talk a little about dogmatism, stress the importance of knowing what you believe and why, and being spiritually prepared for anything. I’m no expert, but bringing it up for conversation. If you have anything to add, ask, praise, or gripe about, let us know!
