The big payoff?

The liberal leftist socialist progressives(LLSP)are perhaps now seeing their big payoff. The School shooting in Parkland, Florida and the aftermath are now providing for the LLSP proof positive that their plans and schemes are paying off and paying off in a big way. Years and years of attempts have passed but now…

First I must address the enlightened professor, the one who asked Where was your God? Well, professor it was the LLSP’s just like you that kicked the one true God out of School. Not only was the one true God kicked out of School, many false gods were brought(ushered)in to take His place. More on this later, plus an example.

Now to the pliable politician, the one who bends any which way, as consistent as water. This mainly concerns the republican politicians. This is to address the republican governor. The same governor who ran an unsuccessful campaign to become president. The same one who says congress must do something, even if that something results in their not being re-elected. This is the same governor who spent years in the very same congress he criticizes for not doing something that would cost them their political careers. Funny he has been pretty silent up until now. This would be the governor from Ohio, but he is not the only one. He is far from the only one, many more lie in wait. Waiting until the time is right to reveal his or her true selves. They will claim that they must act to protect the lives of children.

Now to the Public(government)Schools. They have been educating, indoctrinating if you prefer,(I prefer the latter to the former)the children of this Republic for generations. The indoctrination(education)provided to the children has been steadily drifting left for generations. Now you have created an almost entirely leftist generation, your goal is within reach. Those in High School now, at this moment are the next generation of Teachers, Doctors, Lawyers Judges and Politicians. What will your creation do to what is left of this Republic?

Now to the children that are speaking out, protesting and making demands. Now don’t get me wrong I do admire you, though I believe you are misguided based on your leftist leaning education(indoctrination) and you have some adult help and financial support. You are placing your trust and hopes on the wrong people who will provide you with the wrong solution to a problem, but this is what you have been taught. What is going on in Schools now would have never even been dreamed of, thought of or acted out in my time. Kids are kids and have always been kids, something has changed.

The children(students)are demanding that congress do something. This also goes back to the enlightened professor. Government has become your god and protector, just as intended. You are placing your trust and hopes on politicians and government to solve a problem. Had you received a proper and truthful education, not an indoctrination, you would have been taught that government creates problems so it then can come up with a solution. The problem with a government solution is that it creates a new problem.

You had a lie-in in D.C. on the road outside the White House. There is a march planned, I believe that it is called the “March for our Lives” on March 24th. Let me see if I get this right. You will march on and to D.C. to demand congress(the government)take action to do something about guns and have meaningful gun control reform that will save your lives and lessen the probability of another School shooting. You intend to shame lawmakers into doing something to save your lives. Do you not realize you seek protection from the same government that gives million to an abortion provider?

By the way, the god you think loves and protects you, the government, knew what about the intention of that young man and did nothing. You should be demanding answers and asking, Just where the hell were you? Did you buy the breakdown in protocol excuse?

Personal story segment. It has been many years since I graduated High School. We did not have school shootings in those days. Guns were as prevalent in society in those days, most of us had at least one, and yet we managed not to shoot each other. I dont recall any signage prohibiting firearms on school grounds either. Most the boys carried a pocket knife, yet we managed not to cut or stab each other. Maybe the difference between then and now is that we had a deep respect for life and each other. If we had a problem we worked it out, usually behind the field house, like men and gentlemen. A good old-fashioned fist fight, and when it was over it was over and settled. No retaliation for losing.

I believe you are looking for a solution for a gun problem when what you actually have is a people problem. Solve your people problem and the gun problem will go away by itself. But that is just my opinion. In the days left before your planned march, look at the people problem you have and who or what gave you the people problem you now endure.

Now to the big-time political campaign donors. At least one of you has threatened to not give one dime to any republican candidate who gets one dime from the NRA. This is no more than black-mail politics. You refuse to donate to a candidate based on his views of the Second Amendment. If he or she supports the Second Amendment you will give him or her no money. You will only donate if he or she is against the Second Amendment.

The something every LLSP wants is more and more gun control measures. Gun control is not the answer, your controls will only have an effect on the law-abiding gun owners. Law abiding gun owners are not the problem, we already have enough hoops to jump through, thank you very much.

The mantra of the LLSP is “We just did not go far enough”. Well, quit pussy-footing and get to it.

Well it’s out

The republican memo came out, now we wait and see. Given the level of apathy in this Republic today, it is a great possibility that only those of us who care will even give a hoot. The memo has been spreading around the blogs and that is a good thing, it being released was also a good thing. The problem with some of the blogs media outlets is that so many say “Here is what you need to know”. I say let the people who care decide what they need to know. Let them read it and come to their own conclusions. Many will come to different conclusions, people can see or hear the exact same thing and come to different conclusions.

For instance, during the State of the Union address when President Trump made the statement that Black and Hispanic unemployment was at record low-levels. The republicans heard good news and applauded, the democrats(sitting in the same chambers and hearing the same words)sat on their hands not applauding. The republicans heard good news and the democrats heard bad news. I know what you are saying, the democrats and republicans clap like trained seals when the president is from and representing their political party. But, record low unemployment levels is good news no matter which party has the presidency.

Let’s look at the timing. Released on a Friday, not just any Friday, but the Friday before the superbowl(small s in this case because I don’t see it as worthy of a big S). So let’s look at Monday and the discussions around the “water cooler”. Will they be talking the big game of the big memo? I suspect the game by a large margin.

Why, you ask. The answer is that, people are “fickle”. It was not all that long ago that many “diehard” sports fans were up in arms because some knucklehead pampered prima donna took a knee during the National Anthem. Swearing to never watch a football game again. Some will stand by their word, while others will don their favorite jersey and sit in front of the “boob tube” eating wings and drinking beer, never minding what they said not so long ago. Much the same as when the videos came out about the selling of baby body parts at the abortion clinic.

Maybe by Tuesday the masses will get around to reading the memo, or not. It will go back to the apathy problem, or a new shiny object to look at. Then there is the crowd of Jacobins that exist in society and government. The never Trump crowd and the Trump haters will not give of flying(almost said a bad word)about the memo. To them the ends justify the means. They want the president gone and to them there is no measure that goes to far. They will not care that it appears the at least on government agency and possibly one government department “weaponized” itself to influence an election because the candidate, later the president-elect and finally the president was not one they chose.

I read it several times and the best I can say is “Wow”. It appears to me that some high-level bureaucrats were attempting to use any means possible to derail a presidential campaign. It also appears to me that failing that they would settle for bringing down a sitting president. Wow, talk about collusion, conspiracy and trying to influence an election. It also appears to me that these same individuals did not give a flying(almost said that bad word again)about the future of this Republic, they instead were concerned in their futures. Those same bureaucrats cared not if their activities tarnished the reputation of the entire agencies and/or departments. One even wanted to hang on long enough to reach full retirement benefits. Not to mention the never-ending leaks.

Well raise your hands if you are shocked that a government agency would attempt to influence anything or be used to further a political agenda. It was not all that long ago that the BATFE was used to help the gun control crowd. You do remember fast and furious, don’t you? The gun-walking scheme to send guns across the southern border. That one got Brian Terry killed. Let me see, making guns available to criminals to see if the criminals would use those guns in crimes. The IRS was used against Tea Party conservative groups.

The democrats were to craft a response to the allegations or revelations made in the republican memo and they wanted it released as well. They wanted everything to remain a secret unless they to could expose something. Then the agency wanted to redact the memo if it were released, claiming national security. Many people in government are still up in arms over the release. Claiming this memo was politicized, maybe it was and maybe it wasn’t. I would like to see the democrat memo, just to compare the two. I would like them to offer some sort of justification for the alleged abuses, from their point of view. Perhaps that will come out down the road.

There are some who will read the memo and be taken aback, to say the least. There are others who will read the memo and think that nothing was wrong. There are others who will simply let the media interpret it for them, being to lazy to read it and decide for themselves. There are still others who could care less about the whole affair, the totally apathetic.

In my view there is another thing about the memo. All of this has come to light because Trump became president. It started out as a Russian collusion investigation. It appears that someone claims or thinks that the Russians influenced the outcome of the election. There has yet been a person to come forward and publicly state that the Russians had influenced the way they voted. Each country tries to influence the outcome of elections in other countries. The reason is that they want a friendly government. As to Russia, think about who they would view as a friendly government. Would they, The Russians, view a possible friend as one who had sold to them 20% of its Uranium(you know the stuff that is used in nuclear weapons)? Or would they, the Russians, view an unknown as a possible ally? Who do you think they wanted to be president HRC or DJT? Very few trust the unknown.

If HRC had won the election and became president it is highly unlikely that any of this would have been known much been released to the public. Trump would have lost and there would be no allegation of Russian influence. That alone should anger people as much as, if not more than, what has been revealed in the memo. That means that the bureaucrats and the agencies could have operated without impunity as weapons against the citizens. They could have their “insurance policies” against unwanted results in elections, and no one would be the wiser. The “secret society” remark has yet to be explained. When one “desperately” does not wish for one to become president, how far will his and/or her desperation drive them? Likewise when one desperately wants to be president, how far will his and/or her desperation drive them? How desperate were and are some people? How far were or are they willing to go?

I also understand that there are people in government and out of government who are more than willing to betray their country. I might point this out there are many ways in which one could betray their country. Most do it for financial gain, some do it to hide and cover-up things they have either done directly or been a willing participant in, sometimes both.

Looks like some people need to look up the definitions of Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity. All Americans have their own political basis, they support a political candidate, most do not let their bias interfere with their job. Unfortunately by what is in this memo their political bias became their job. I really want to see the democrat memo.

What is happening in and with government today is pretty close to if not exactly what Patrick Henry had warned about.

The best we can hope for at this point is a ripple effect. All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

As I recall there was a country in the 1930’s and 40’s that had used government against and to spy on its own people. Some sort of “secret society” or “secret police” as I recall. I wonder what the level of apathy was in that country.

On a side note. We have another government shutdown looming, yet the republicans managed to find time to go on a retreat, the democrats go on their retreat next. The drama of D.C. continues. A tough fight or a retreat and the politicians choose to retreat.

Down to the wire again

Here we go again, another threat to shut down the government. Those “enlightened individuals” that infest the halls of congress are pulling the same old song and dance(crap)again. Waiting till the last-minute to fund the government. Good Lord, they are such “drama queens”. If they spent even half the time doing the business they were sent to congress to do as they spend in front of the cameras and the talk shows they might just get something done.

They have known since the last was approved(whenever the hell that was)that there needed to be a new budget for the next fiscal year. They spend their time talking about what needs to be done but that is all they do, talk. How many times must they “kick the can down the road”? Now they try to work out a deal for a continuing resolution, to fund the government for just a few more days or weeks. If they get a CR this same drama will play out without end.

We get drug through the mud no matter which party controls congress. And that is the problem the parties fight for control, not just of congress but the entire government. This time the socialist democrats threaten a partial government shut down, they are in the minority and at the moment control nothing. Or do they? After the mid-term elections in just a few short months it may just be the socialist republicans who are in the minority. When the socialist republicans are the minority they too will threaten a partial shut down of the government. Just part of the never-ending drama of D.C.. No matter which party controls this Republic, the Republic is the loser.

This drama, this time, is because the socialist democrats want assurances for the “dreamers” and DACA(you know the ones who are here illegally). I thought that we would have a once and done policy when Reagan was president. You remember the amnesty for illegals and then secure the border. Well they got their amnesty and the border has yet to be secured. How many millions was it then and now how many more millions will it be this time? The republicans were after cheap labor then and the democrats are after votes now.

Well I have news for those enlightened individuals in congress, there is another group of “dreamers” in this Republic, the legal citizens. The ones who dream of a lean, frugal and efficient government. Those like me. But then again we do not matter to you do we? To either party?

I have not checked for any late breaking news concerning this latest drama queen fiasco, and probably wont. At this point there is only 4 hours and 22 minutes left until a partial government shutdown happens or is avoided. It will be less by the time I get around to posting this.

Being as it is after 5 pm on the east coast most of the government is shutdown anyway. The world is still turning and the lights are still on.

One last thing. Each and every day we are bombarded with scenes and sound bites of the hearings going on in the different committees and the hearings going on to investigate this and that. But we never a subjected to scenes and sound bites of the goings on in the budget committee. You do have a budget committee dont you?

Wars and rumours of wars. Part 1

This series of posts revolves around the liberal leftist socialist progressives and the wars they wage in and against this Republic.

First up is the war on religion, the more correct term would be the war on(against)Christianity. This war has been going on for quite some time and continues today.

They use the same old tired argument, separation of Church and State. They do love to bring up the Constitution when it fits in with their agenda. They are either totally ignorant or they count on the citizens to be totally ignorant, I suspect the latter. The only separation between Church and State is laid out in the first Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

Kicking God out of the Schools. 1962, it was the opinion of the court that prayer in school violated the establishment clause of the Constitution.

It continued and continues with kicking God out of public places, removing religious symbols. The latest is the demand the removal of the Peace Cross, a World War 1 memorial. It is the opinion of the court that the Cross is unconstitutional because it excessively entangles the government in religion because the Cross is the core symbol of Christianity.

So was this Republic founded on secularism or religion? Well lets take a look at some of the founding documents. You will find these words, terms and phrases. Found at greatamericandocuments.com, there are other sources as well.

The Declaration of Arms July 6, 1775. Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms.
…that the divine Author of our existence…
…But a reverence for our Creator…
…Divine favor towards us…that his Providence would not…
…before God and the world…
…which our beneficent Creator hath graciously…
The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
…Laws of Nature and Nature’s God…
…their Creator with…
…the Supreme Judge of the World…
…protection of Divine Providence…
Articles of Confederation November 15, 1777; ratified and in force March 1, 1781
…the Great Governor of the World…
Treaty of Paris signed in Paris September 3, 1783; ratified by Congress January 14, 1784; ratified by Great Britain April 9, 1784
In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity
… the Divine Providence…
…by the grace of God…

Obviously this Republic had its founding on Religion and not secularism. God is mentioned in the above founding Documents. You will notice that the Constitution is not on the list. Intentional, I assure you.

Is this Republic founded on Christianity or secularism? Again we turn to the founding documents.

The Articles of Confederation
This is found in the Preamble.
…the fifteenth day of November in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy seven…
This is found in the Signatories
… the ninth day of July in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven Hundred and Seventy-eight…
The Treaty of Paris
This is found in the signatories
…this third day of September in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-three.
The Constitution.
This is found in the signatories
Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven.

Obviously this Republic was founded on Christianity and therefore is a Christian nation, or at least it is supposed to be. The date of the historical documents reflect the date A.D. The year of our Lord. With that being said this is a Christian nation not a nation of Christians, there is no national religion and congress has made no law creating one. The citizens of the several States that comprise this Republic are free to worship as they please. Now we wait to see if the Courts have a differing opinion.

Church and State are separate, or are they? Government(state)has gotten itself unnecessarily and exceedingly entangled in religion. How you ask? IRS tax codes. Why? I believe for the simple reason of getting politics out and away from the Church. When was the last time you heard a sermon on politics, not necessarily supporting or opposing a particular candidate, but what effects politics and therefore government has had on the Church and Christianity? If a Church were to have sermons based on politics would they lose their favor with the IRS(government)?

Government has in itself become a religion, of sorts. Government has replaced God in people’s lives, government has become god. There was a time when people Prayed to God in times of difficulty. Now people pray that government(god)will come to their aid in times of difficulty.

If this was still a Christian Republic, based on Christian principles I doubt very seriously that we would have abortion on demand? But then again you have to ask yourself, why is there such a demand for abortion? Is it because we have devolved into a secular nation?

The right to an abortion is based on a court opinion. The right of same-sex marriage is based on a court opinion. Much of what we are forced to contend with are based on court opinions.(More on opinion becoming law in a later post)

We in this Republic can stop thinking that politicians and jurists can save this Republic. They are the reasons this Republic is in such a mess. The only thing that can save this Republic is by returning to the religious foundations this Republic was founded under. The first thing to do is to remember that our rights come from God and are not bestowed on and to us by government(politicians and jurists).

Now my brothers and sisters in Christ let me say this I do not care the color of your skin, we as Christians must stop dividing ourselves and me must stop letting others divide us. We are easily conquered when we are divided.

Ephesians tells us what we must do. I prefer the King James Version, it is what I am most familiar with. I am not a Biblical Scholar, Theologian or any thing of the sort. Some call me a back-sliding Christian. I call my self a work in progress. To reinforce this I use a King James Study Bible, and seek help from my Personal Savior, Jesus Christ.

Ephesians Chapter 6
6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

That is it my friends we must regain our Republic. To do this we must wake up and follow the Scriptures. If we do as instructed we win the war on(against)Christianity. If we remain asleep and continue to ignore the Scriptures we will lose this war to the powers of darkness. The task ahead of us is not as great as the power behind us.

The time has come for another Crusade, a Great Crusade to restore this Republic. A spiritual awakening, revival and redemption.

They judge themselves

Now what are they going to do? A sitting democrat Senator has had his behavior exposed, inappropriate to say the least. A sitting democrat Senator taking advantage of a female, at the time, co-worker. I would venture to say that this so-called comedian at that time, now a sitting democrat Senator was the first name on the marquis, the head-liner. If he was the senior member of the cast, he may have assumed what he did was his “right”. I dont know much about this former so-called comedian, I dont know if he a had a wife at the time or not. If he did, we had a term for this type of individual while I was in the Army. We called these types of individuals “Geographical Bachelors”, meaning that if he and his wife were in different zip codes he was a bachelor. Some people took that same stance if they and their spouse were in different area codes, sometimes in different buildings, or rooms within the same building. The clown had the attitude that all that was in his sight and everything within his grasp was his for the taking, he may still have the same attitude.

One would think that with all of the “righteous indignation” the establishment politicians have expressed over the allegations against the republican nominee in the Alabama senate race, demanding that he step aside they would take the same approach with this “clown”. But no, they will take a different approach. They do protect their own. They are going to refer the Senator to the Ethics Committee. They, other senators will decide if the clown’s behavior was ethical or not, he apparently cant. If he is found unethical in this they will name his punishment. Patrick Henry was right about this too. There really is no accountability in congress.

Speaking of Ethics Committees, how many of you need a committee to tell you if you have acted ethically or not? Most of us know the difference between ethical and unethical conduct without the benefit of a committee. Apparently this clown thought his behavior was acceptable.

Seems to me this clown was loud while condemning the actions of a Hollywood mogul. Bit dogs do holler first, and the loudest.

Now we have this, a congresswoman has come out under the hashtag me too. What she said in her testimony was to say the least startling. I believe she referred to congress as a “breeding ground” of sexual misconduct. I would say that they have the morals of an alley cat, but I would not want to condemn alley cats.

This kind of behavior did not just start yesterday. As a side note saying I am sorry or apologizing does not make it right. Using your position to make advances to take advantage of another is just bad manners, there is no excuse for bad manners. Now let me address your morals for just a minute, your morals are low. Just how low you ask? Your morals are lower than whale feces, and whale feces is on the bottom of the ocean.

So is this a failure of the individual to control him/her self or of congressional leadership? Well the answer is both, but it is the individuals responsibility to control him/her self. The reason I said both is because the current leaders were not always leaders they were at one time followers. But the leaders of today had to have seen what was going on then. Some of the members of congress have been around for years and years, some for decades.

So as a Senator says, “this is the first shoe to drop, more shoes will drop”. This I fear is going to grow and grow, the clown is not the only one, just the first one to be named.

So what is the answer? We the voters need to clean house. Repeal the 17th Amendment, let the States once again send their Senators.

I wonder if….

It would seem that nearly all of the congress critters and almost all of the talking-heads have already convicted Judge Roy Moore from the Great State of Alabama of sexual improprieties. Not only have they already convicted him they demand that he step aside in the Senate race. One of the enlightened clowns presently holding a seat in the senate has already said that “He has no place in the Senate”. At least one has said that Judge Moore must prove his innocence. Judge Moore has already been convicted in the court of opinion. Judge Moore has not, I repeat has not, been convicted in a court of law. They have even began a campaign to find a write-in candidate in the senate race. One would expect this from the other party. Judge Moore won the republican primary in Alabama and the afore-mentioned statements are coming from republicans. It seems to me that the republicans will torpedo their own, wanting and willing to lose the election and the seat. Or is it just they did not get the candidate they wanted? Seems to me the republicans are trying to put a monkey wrench into the works.

It has even been said by some Judge Moore should step aside and let the party select a nominee. They actually think the party machine is smarter than the voters who supported Judge Moore. Seems to me not all that long ago they wanted then candidate Trump, then nominee and now President Trump to step aside because of allegations of improprieties that were later proven false. Then as now they did not get the candidate they wanted.

Judge Moore as well as any other person accused of a crime should be and is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a Court of Law. A matter of Fact not a matter of Opinion. This still is America is it not? Since when is it the defendants responsibility to prove his innocence?

So I wonder if allegations of improprieties(taking liberties)were leveled at a sitting member of Congress, would they step aside? Would they succumb to opinion? I doubt they would. But the republicans in Congress are guilty of taking liberties, they have abused the voters that supported them. Constituent abuse. They have lied to the voters. Come on, confess your improprieties and step aside.

I question the timing of these allegations. They did not surface during the primaries. Why now?

You were willing to have a democrat president just not to have a President Trump. Anybody but Trump you said. You are willing to have a democrat senator just not to have a Senator Moore. Anybody but Moore you are saying.

Choose wisely Alabama.

You the republicans are the Jacobins of today. The ends justify the means.

Some do, some dont

Some get it, some dont and probably never will.

The latest mass killing(murdering)occurred in a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. This was not the only shooting(murdering)that has occurred in a Christian House of Worship. Before the one in Texas there was one in Tennessee. Before the one in Tennessee there was one in South Carolina.

The one in Tennessee and the one in Texas have one thing in common. A concerned citizen brought the carnage to a halt. If I recall correctly the murdering at the Antioch Baptist Church was stopped by an Usher who wrestled the attacker to the ground. Again if I recall correctly the attacker(murderous savage)was shot in the leg. The murdering at the First Baptist Church was also brought to a halt by a concerned citizen. In this attack the concerned citizen exchanged fire with the attacker, as reported the attacker(again a murderous savage)was shot during the exchange. In the one in South Carolina the attacker(and again a murderous savage)was able to flee the scene, only to be captured a short time later. The murderous savage in Texas was not only shot, but when he attempted to flee was subsequently chased down by two townsfolk, including the one who had exchanged fire with and wounded the murderous savage.

This needs to be said and understood by all. In each of these instances the murderous savage knew he would face little if any resistance. They basically had the upper hand, the advantage if you will. They are brave when they have the advantage, not so much when they encounter resistance. None of the three murderous savages had planned on any meeting any real resistance.

I would like to point this out about society in this Republic today. The concerned citizen in Texas who grabbed his rifle and brought the savagery to an end is more the exception than the rule. Most in our society would have chosen not to get involved, if they did get involved it would have only been to the extent of grabbing their cellphone and making a video. This man chose to get involved, he grabbed his rifle(not a cellphone)and placing himself in great danger engaged the threat. He placed himself in great peril to defend the defenseless. To me that is the definition of a true Hero. This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit, heroic and decisive action in the face of great peril. The other man, the driver of the truck also chose to get involved. This man also demonstrated great courage during the chase, determined to not let the murderous savage escape. Both of these men are exemplary and courageous in deed and character.

Now lets move on to those who dont get it and probably never will. This would be the gun control crowd, actually it should be called the “cult of gun control”. I call it a cult because to them it is a religion, but it is a cult. It is a false religion based on a false premise. It is based on the premise that what they call “gun crime” can be eliminated by placing further restrictions on law-abiding citizens. Passing laws and even more laws have no effect on those that choose to ignore or break the laws. If the rights of the citizens are infringed the only effect that would have would to be to provide even more victims of those who use a gun to commit a crime. I call the gun control a cult for another reason, they have Profits, false Profits. They follow a Profit who calls for more gun control while at the same time they are surrounded by armed security. They have guns to protect them while they seek to disarm others. The false “religion” of gun control headed by a false Profit, that makes it a cult.

Now we have a republican Senator from Texas siding with and reaching out to the democrats on gun control. This is a democrat windfall. It sounds as simple as writing legislation to enforce and strengthen laws on the books, but it is not that simple. It will not stop with legislation to fix existing legislation, it will lead to “comprehensive reform”. Currently the Air Force is being blamed for the failure on its part in reporting the conviction of the murderous savage in Texas. To me it is just another example of the government being above the law. When the government makes a mistake they just say “oops”. What happens to the rest of us if we make a similar mistake?

Now let’s go to those that get it. Once again a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy with a gun. We have a sheriff here in Florida that has come out to say, “if you have a permit and a gun take your gun with you”. He gets it and so should you. I agree with what he has said.

You are your own “first line of defense”. Everyone who owns a gun should be proficient, range time and holster drills. I would like to say this, carrying a firearm comes with great responsibility. If you are not willing to accept that responsibility them for God’s sake do not carry. Let me point this out, the gun in your holster is not a “good luck charm”. Just because you have a concealed weapon and a permit is no guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen. Be proficient. If you want to carry a “good luck charm” get a rabbit’s foot, but then ask yourself what happen to the rest of the rabbit?

Now this is going to bring us to the subject of guns in Church. This is a subject that most congregations are unwilling to discuss. But it must be discussed. Before beginning with this I would like to point out this. We should be walking about this Republic everyday without a care in the world. We should be safe in our schools, offices, parks and everywhere we go, but things are different now.

There are many places that one would believe they were absolutely safe, but for today I will address only two. We should feel absolute safety in these two places, the sanctuary of the womb and the Sanctuary of the Church. Taking a little side road for just a minute. Let me go back to the “cult of gun control” for just a minute. The same people who favor gun control are the same people who favor abortion on demand. I find this to be more than ironic, they are perfectly willing to support abortion, which is not a Constitutional Right but oppose the private ownership of guns which is a Constitutional Right. Since 1973 it has been estimated that over 53 million babies have been murdered in the mother’s womb. The pro-choice “abortion cult” has their false Profits, the same as the “gun control cult”. The ones who push abortion have children and grand children. Those that support abortion only do so because their mothers chose life.

Now let’s go back to guns in the Church. This is going to cause angst in some Churches. I am of the opinion that every Church in this Republic have some sort of Church Protection Plan. I am also of the opinion that every male in the congregation carry his own personal firearm, that is, if he is trained, proficient and holds a permit if required and most importantly will to take on that responsibility. Some Pastors are going to be against guns in the Church. Some of the Congregation like is going to be opposed to guns in the Church. But I remind you of this you are your own and best first line of defense. As I have said before when a wolf comes it is best to have some wolf repellant.

There are those who claim that a handgun is not match for a rifle. Well that is true, but something is better than nothing. For a handgun to be effective against a rifle, the distance must be closed, either by the defender or the murderous savage. I am not for turning every Church in this Republic into a bristling fortress, but Churches like all “soft” targets must be “hardened”. We want people to come to Church and come to Jesus. We could lock our doors, but locks only keep honest people honest.

Above when I said “This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit heroic and decisive”, that was and is true but it exemplified more than just the American Spirit. He exemplified the Christian Spirit. Willing to lay down his life for a friend. The Christian American Spirit.
