There Is Healing When You Give Someone Voice

It is my pleasure to present to my dear readers a great Christian friend and sister in Christ, Susan Smith, as our guest blogger here at Talk Wisdom this evening. May her wonderful words of wisdom, brought to us all by the power of the Holy Spirit of God through her, be a special blessing to each of you tonight. I know that what she has shared in this wonderful message has truly blessed me!

Love in Christ,


Susan Smith's Newsletter, July 29, 2011

There is healing when you give someone voice. Listening to a hurting heart can be therapeutic when the time is right. Silence can speak volumes, but then again words are powerful too if they come from the Lord via the Holy Spirit. Sometimes it is difficult for me to hear clearly and to see with a pure heart. Often I pray for God to open the eyes of my heart and others who are hurting. I also have learned that pain can draw me closer to God, and when I am hurting deeply it tends to draw me closer to God, almost as though he is watching me closer than before.

The words that are written tell me it is good for me to draw near to God (Psalm 73:28). For me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made him my refuge so that I can tell of all his works. I like David Stern’s translation from Psalm 73:

Whom do I have in heaven but you? And with you, I lack nothing on earth. My mind and body may fail; but God is the rock for my mind and my portion forever. Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who adulterously leave you. But for me, the nearness of God is my good.

My friend, you are in the kingdom of heaven now, if you believe the truth. I am not talking about relative or comparative truth that we hear so much about during this season in the world. I am talking about absolute truth. The Messiah is the truth (John 14:6). He is the way we must go in order to come unto the father, and he is the life we must live if we want to choose life instead of death (John 14:6).

When Joshua led the Israelites across the Jordan River, there were still wars in the Promised Land. We are in spiritual battles today, every day we breathe. The battlefield is the mind! We are all experiencing the oppression and what appears to be destruction by the enemy in and on the earth today. What can we do? Nothing, we must BE what we are, by his GRACE! When we are focused and following Jesus, then the Lord directs our path.

We must trust in the Lord with all our corporate heart and lean not on our own individual understanding. In all our ways the ONE body must acknowledge the ONE God of heaven and earth, the ONE God of ISRAEL, and he will make level our individual paths and make them straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).

By God’s grace I am what I am, and his grace towards me was not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:10). We have ONE enemy. We are created in the image of God; therefore, we are spiritual people. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). The spiritual realm is real. We are slaves to the one we obey (Romans 6:16). We must be sober and be watchful. Our enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

In union with the Messiah, through his faithfulness, we have boldness and confidence when we approach God. When we suffer for others, it is for their glory. For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name (Ephesians 3:12-15). There is ONE body (Ephesians 4:4). My prayer this day is that the eyes of your heart and mine may be enlightened, so that we both will know what is the hope of his calling (Ephesians 1:18). Do you have hope this day?

I received a personal phone call from a pastor I love last week. He knew I was traveling to Israel for the three-week study tour, and he called to tell me he missed me in worship the first Sunday I was back. My custom is to worship with several congregations throughout each year. I enjoy the variety of the spiritual food I receive from different circles of worshipers.

It made me feel good to receive the call. I told the pastor I wanted to worship with a congregation that I know loves Israel my first Sunday back. He understood and showed me God’s grace when he said he did not want me to feel pressured to attend the religious service where he speaks most every Sunday unless there is a guest speaker. Then I told him I was very interested in attending the Wednesday night bible study he will be teaching later this year.

The study I hope to attend should show me more of the pastor’s heart concerning Israel. I was pleased to hear him call Jesus the “Messiah” not long ago. The study is called a “Precept Bible Study” and the advertisement for the study says this:

Do you know that our relationship with Jesus Christ is built on an Old Testament covenant with Abraham? Do you know that the Covenant bridges the Old and New Testament? Do you know that our Lord and Savior is the fulfillment of that covenant? Do you know that everyone who is not a part of that covenant is not among God's chosen people? Would you like to learn why God chose you for His Kingdom and not others?

God’s people are beautiful all over the earth and in the world where we live in the flesh today. On the sixth day of creation, God saw all that he had made, and indeed it was very good (Genesis 1:31). I am in love with the family of God, the ONE body. Of course even they can be discouraging and even disappointing at times to my fleshly desires.

You see, the Bible study sounds good to my ears; however my hope is not in the written Word of God. My hope is in the Living Word. When I draw near to him, I realize he is keeping a closer eye on me than ever before. I begin to realize his eyes are like a flaming fire; he is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called The Word of God (Revelation 19:12-13). It is a fearful and terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31).

Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down nations—“He will break them with an iron rod; shatter them like a clay pot” (Psalm 2:9). It is he who treads the winepress from which flows the wine of the furious wrath of God, the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:15-16).

As a believer, I am not very interested anymore in learning more facts and what other people might think. I want to know God and the ONE he sent (John 17:3). I want to believe the Spirit of Truth is guiding me into all truth (John 16:13). Hmmm… if God’s chosen people are made in his image and we are ONE body, then maybe somehow, someway we can learn from one another. I believe I am purely and simply following Jesus. Want to join me? After all, we are ONE! (Colossian 2:9-11 and Colossians 3:9-11). Think about these things… ~ Susan Smith

Atheists Sue To Prevent WTC Memorial Cross Display

This morning, I read a post over at The Blaze: Atheists Sue to Stop Display of Cross at World Trade Center Memorial.


A group of atheists is up in arms over the display of a cross at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. The World Trade Center memorial, which is intended to serve as a reminder of the tragic terror attack that occurred nearly 10 years ago, is scheduled to open on the event’s 10th anniversary.

(Read what Meredith Jessup has to say about this legal challenge over on the blog.)

When the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001, two beams perfectly formed the cross, which many view as both symbolic and iconic. It is this object — a steel cross — that is perfect fodder for atheists and non-believers who do not wish to see any religious items included in the memorial.

Continue reading here.

It is interesting to read the various comments over there. Please view the video (at The Blaze link above) of the blessing of the cross, then you will understand my comment better.

Posted on July 28, 2011 at 10:38am
I would expect Mayor Bloombutt to sign the complaint, but Gov. Chris Christie? What a huge disappointment! Christie has lost my respect. During the video, the brother read a letter where someone claims that “we all worship the same God,” and that includes Muslims. Well sorry – but that statement is incorrect. Of course, the writer has the right to say and believe what he/she wants. But it doesn’t make it true. Read my essay about this at Talk Wisdom:   Why Muslims Don’t Worship the Same God as Christians.

How ironic it is to realize that Bloomberg approves of the 9/11 mosque being built, but objects to the display of this cross at the memorial! Unequivocal bias anyone?? Muslims and atheists probably have more in common because both obviously worship a different kind of god – a humanistic one.

In other news - The Blaze: McCain References TEA Party Hobbits on Senate Floor

I saw the RINO progressive try to distance himself from his own remarks on Hannity last night. Fat chance! Hannity wasn't fooled and neither are GENUINE CONSERVATIVES! I heard that Sharron Angle stated that McCain just "through her and his former running mate, Sarah Palin under the bus."

The thing that this debt crisis debate is bringing out for all to see is just who in the Republican party are genuine Conservatives that support the principles and values of what the TEA Party Patriots are trying to do to correct the corruption and stop the out-of-control spending in Washington D.C. Was McCain blind to the results of the 2010 mid-term election? Ah! It grieves me to see him do this.

But one comment over at The Blaze jumped out at me. It actually makes McCain look quite foolish on this issue:

Posted on July 27, 2011 at 8:47pm
He obviously hasn’t read the Tolkien series, because if he had, he would know that the Hobbits were the only ones with any courage, and that they persevered in the face of all sorts of evils, betrayers, and nay-sayers, and eventually brought down the most powerful evil empire in existence that, if they had not destroyed it, would have conquered the whole of middle earth.

Obviously, McCain has no concept of “courage” or “principle”.

Obama's Rich vs. Poor Divisive Political Agenda Not Helpful

What often gets lost in the divisive political world of left vs. right, Democrats vs. Republicans, liberals vs. conservatives, and especially, the rich vs. the poor is the FACT that many rich people do good things for the poor.

Take the San Diego Food Bank, for instance. It was recently re-named "The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank." My family and I have been regular donors to this particular food bank and our church, The Rock Church in San Diego, has done many food drives for donations. However, when the name change came along I wanted to know why it was re-named. I worried that the food bank may have been taken over by a group that wanted to take a cut of the money donated...or something. Well, my fears have been alleviated! The truth is, the San Diego Food Bank was re-named "Jacobs & Cushman" because of the huge donations given by these two rich men.


The food bank, which hands out over 18 million pounds of food each year, is the county’s largest wholesale supplier to the needy, selling discounted food to charities that distribute it, providing food to people in need, advocating for the hungry and educating the public about hunger-related issues.

At the event on Sunday it was renamed the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank to recognize the $1.76 million donation by auto dealer Stephen Cushman and Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs.

If you can, I would like to encourage readers to donate to this worthy cause.

So, while Barack Obama continues to pit the rich vs. the poor for political reasons, we find out that the generosity of many rich conservatives benefit the poor better than Obama's terrible economic policies!

I could just imagine hearing Barack Obama at a private party these days complaining and saying...'Ohhh those nasty rich people!!! What good are they except for paying more taxes to the government?'

Come to think of it, I don't think I have EVER heard him say anything positive about Americans who donate to such causes. Why is that? All I hear is disparaging comments about "the rich." Many people who aren't necessarily rich donate to such causes. Why don't we hear any good news about this from the White House? Answer: probably because it doesn't fit into Obama's political posturing and demonizing agenda.  It also sheds a huge light upon his failed economic policies and why we are in dire straits concerning jobs here in America.

I also saw a Discussing Food Banks page and decided to include a link to it. See for yourself how many individuals, corporations, churches, communities etc. are contributing millions of pounds of food to the needy. This is the way that it is supposed to be!! Government hand-outs are wasteful and much of the money is often given to the wrong people; like those who bilk taxpayers through fraudulent food stamp claims, unemployment claims, Medicare and Medicaid fraud, Social Security fraud, and money sent to fraudulent recipients...e.g. those who are already dead!

Instead of praising organizations like these, Obama and his ilk demonize the very people who donate and make these food banks and pantries possible for the poor!

Just thought I'd share some charity information and economic truth in the midst of all the yelling and bickering going on in Washington D.C. over the deficit, spending, taxes, and the debt crisis.

Obama Can't Remember When He Was Born?

The website called NewsBusters often has humorous NewsBusted videos which are always entertaining to watch. Here's one of the latest:

You will notice the segment where hostess Jodie Miller mentions that Obama can't seem to remember his birthday. Hmmmm..... She quips, "Apparently, it's hard enough for him to remember to say he was born in Hawaii, let alone when."

That got me thinking about a curious post that I recently saw over at The Obama File. On the "What To Believe" page, I noticed an unusual posting about Obama's MySpace page:

This is an interesting link --

It is Barack Obama's MySpace web page. In the upper right corner it brags that it is, "Powered by HOPE, Obama 08." There are Obama logos all over the page, that was created and is maintained by the Obama Campaign. These are Obama's people.

In the frame containing Obama's photo, is this data: "Male -- 52 years old -- Washington, Washington, DC -- United States"

Nothing unusual there, right? Wrong!

We've been told over, and over that Barack Obama was born on August 4th, 1961 -- and that's the date on his bogus COLB.

If Barack Obama was born on August 4th, 1961, he would be 49 years old [Christine adds: as of August 4th, 2010], not 52. If Obama is 52, then he would have been born in 1958 (or '57), before Hawaii became a state.

The implication of that would be that Obama would not only be ineligible because of his dual citizenship, but because he was not born in the United States mainland -- territories don't count towards "natural born" status.

Now, I believe that this is probably an error, but it is Obama's site, and it's been up there since at least August 2009. So what's the story? What are we to believe?

Could it be HIS AGE that he is trying to hide with all of these fraudulent "birth" certificates?? As Mr. Beckwith of The Obama File clearly exposes, if Obama was actually born in Hawaii in either the year 1957 or 1958, then he would not be eligible because Hawaii was only a territory - NOT A STATE YET!

I mean, who gets the date of their own birthday wrong???

Plus, if you look at the MySpace link (above) the html contains this information:

If Obama's birthday really is August 4th, 1959, even then he wouldn't be eligible because Hawaii became a state on August 21, 1959.

Be sure to take the time to read the entire page "What To Believe" over at The Obama File.

The lies surrounding this Bogus POTUS are monumental!

The Norway Terrorist

The New York Times liars just cannot help themselves. They are LIARS who try to pass off their horrid ideological agenda as "truth." They are so far from the truth that all we can do is pity them. They have adopted Rahm Emanuel's Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals tactic of "You never let a serious crisis go to waste."* What an oxymoron that sentence is! When have we ever seen a "good" crisis? A serious crisis is always a sad state of affairs which often includes evil, mayhem and death. Who in their right mind would ever claim that a serious crisis should not go to waste? Answer: The father of lies.

Jesus speaking:

Jhn 8:44 "You are of [your] father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own [resources], for he is a liar and the father of it.

We also have these verses from 1 John:

1Jo 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth

1Jo 2:4 He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him

The unholy alliance of the Communists, Socialists, Progressives, Liberals, Anti-Israel, Pro-Islam radicals all demonstrate their combined mindsets against Pro-Israel advocates, Conservatives, Christians, and Constitutional Republic TEA Party Patriots. They would do and say ANYTHING to try and anger the world against us. In this instance, they have found their blue-eyed, blond-haired, white, terrorist in order to show that not all terrorists are from radical Islam. They ignore the fact that MOST of the terrorist attacks ARE Muslim, of Arab descent, and belong to one of several radical Islamic terrorism organizations.

Brigitte Gabriel of ACT For has written an essay that reiterates how the twisted thinking of reporters and editors from the New York Times often get the information wrong during such tragedies:

The Norway Terrorist

By Brigitte Gabriel, President, ACT! for America

We in ACT! for America join those around the world who are shocked and deeply saddened by the mass murder spree in Norway. We grieve for those killed, for their families, and for their friends.

This touches me very personally. I have seen friends murdered by terrorists and I have felt the unspeakable pain of that loss.

We also join those around the world who condemn, in the strongest words possible, the unconscionable actions of Anders Behring Breivik.

Not surprisingly, Brevik’s 1,500 page manifesto is being combed for clues as to why he would perpetrate such a heinous act of terrorism.

For instance, a New York Times article states Breivik was “deeply influenced by a small group of American bloggers and writers who have warned for years about the threat from Islam…” He also frequently quoted the Unabomber.

Predictably, and sadly, there are those who have started the drumbeat that rhetoric critical of radical Islam is the cause of this tragedy. We have seen ludicrous online posts conjuring up comparisons to Breivik and conservative American political leaders that I won’t dignify by reprinting here.

This is reminiscent of what happened after the Tucson shooting spree, when many in the press jumped to conclusions that Jared Loughner was a “right winger” or a “tea party activist.”

A column by Mark Tapson in FrontPageMagazine has some very important points in this regard.

Breivik is a terrorist. His targeting of helpless schoolchildren makes him no better than the slaughterers at Beslan…. There is no connection between the legitimate, courageous, lawful work of notable anti-jihadists and such evil. No true Christian, conservative, or responsible critic of jihad would condone Breivik’s despicable, cowardly acts or deem them to be in accordance with our beliefs and values. Much less would we celebrate those acts, unlike our Islamist counterparts.

In my home country of Lebanon I saw first-hand what happens when terrorism and violence is used to undermine democracy. When 9/11 happened, I made a vow that I would not allow what happened to my country of birth happen to my adopted country.

This is why the mission of the organization I founded, ACT! for America, has ALWAYS been and will ALWAYS be a call to constructive, peaceful and democratic citizen action through education, community action, and legislation.

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

*Complete quote below.  It was as if Emanuel realized that what he was saying would be greatly criticized (No kidding!  What an idiot!), so he attempted to soften the statement a bit:

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
Rahm Emanuel

Yep...fits the bill alright. The "things you think you could not do before" in this instant is to unfairly demonize political and religious opponents on the right. I think Emanuel and all of those of his ilk fail miserably. Just like the puppet-in-chief he once served under. They are both a complete disaster for this nation.  Since Emanuel was fired, it's one down, one to go!  Can't wait for Obamagone - 2012!

Monday Devotional

In today's world of fear, greed, wars and rumors of wars, political corruption, and world chaos, God's Word is the antidote. It is the best source for encouragement when things are going well, but especially when they are going bad. Why? Because we know Who holds the future!! Jesus Christ!!! He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This is a fact that you, as a believer, can rely on! I can't think of anything else in this world that could be better. Knowing what Jesus has promised us, realizing the warning signs he has given us, while at the same time,  giving us GENUINE hope and plans for a beautiful future in eternity with him FOREVER, cannot be surpassed by anything that the secular, temporal, finite world has to offer!! No matter what happens here, we know where Jesus is and where we are going after our deaths.

Jesus' words:

Jhn 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

Jhn 14:2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; [fn] if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [fn]

Jhn 14:3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, [there] you may be also.

Jhn 14:4 "And where I go you know, and the way you know."

NKJV Footnotes:
(14:2) Literally dwellings
(14:2) NU-Text adds a word which would cause the text to read either if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? or if it were not so I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

Jhn 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Yes Lord!! We know because You have told us! Thank you for saving me from my sins! Thank you for living in my heart today! Thank you for preparing a place for me in eternity! When my life and work for you is over, I will rejoice being with You forever!

The Write Encouragement

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy.
Philippians 1:3-4

Recommended Reading
Philippians 1:3-11

How many words do you speak throughout a given day compared to the words that you write? One estimation of our spoken words reports that a woman speaks approximately 8000 words a day, and a man speaks about 6000 words. These estimates outnumber our written words by far--even though Internet messaging goes on 24/7. Is it any surprise that sometimes we can't remember what we said or what someone else said? The power of the written word cannot be underestimated.

God valued the written word and gave us the Bible as His letter of encouragement--a permanent record of His love and concern for us. Many of the books in the New Testament are letters, known as epistles, written to churches and individuals. It's interesting to note that when the apostle Paul wrote a letter, he consistently began with a word of encouragement (Romans 1:8-9; 1 Corinthians 1:4-9; 2 Corinthians 1:3-5).

Written encouragement conveys a thoughtful investment of your time. Why not take a minute and think of someone you know who needs a word of encouragement today. They won't forget it!

Written encouragement is one of the most effective tools God has given to His children.
David Jeremiah

State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas

A stunning revelation to report! Trevor was the first blog that alerted me to a post that needs to go VIRAL!

Pajamas Worse Than GunWalker - State Dept. Allegedly Sold Gus To Zetas


Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:
Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.
Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot, told the Times he supported Jordan’s allegations, adding that the Zetas have reportedly bought property in the Columbus, N.M., border region to stash weapons and other contraband.
“From the intel, it appears that a company was set up in Mexico to purchase weapons through the U.S. Direct Commercial Sales Program, and that the company may have had a direct link to the Zetas.”

Continue Reading click here.


[If] these allegations can be verified: what on Earth was the State Department thinking supplying the direct sale of military weapons to a cartel front company? Weapons that were then smuggled out of the very airport used by the Drug Enforcement Agency charged with bringing down the cartels?

Anthony Martin at the Examiner brings up one of the most damning and compelling questions that the State Department and Obama administration must answer if this story is true:

The program is set up so that the sale of U.S. guns to foreign entities involve direct negotiations with the governments of those countries purchasing the weapons. The description of the program specifically states that it regulates the sale of U.S. firearms to other countries or international organizations.

How, then, did a drug cartel purchase weapons through this program when it is neither an international organization nor a government?

At The Truth About Guns, Brad Kozak opines:

The ATF was not the only ones running guns to Mexico. Apparently the State Department was playing, too. And then consider this angle — was the State Department competing with the ATF for the hearts and minds of the Mexican drug trade?

If the ATF is supplying the Sinaloas (with Calderón’s tacit approval and/or help) and State is playing for the Zetas, where does that leave the rest of America?

It sounds like a fictional thriller, but considering what we’ve already learned of Operation Fast and Furious, the Justice Department, and the possibility of even more gunrunning operations (Operation Castaway) out of DOJ, is a rival program being run out of State really a bizarre accusation?

Kenya Tourism Guides Say Obama Born in Kenya

The Obama File has started up a new forum. How interesting it is to find out that Kenya Information and Tourism Worldguides says Obama born in Kenya. Of course, the Obots went ahead and scrubbed the information from the website. But The Obama File website took a screen shot of how the website appeared before the scrubbing. Go over to The Obama File forum to see it.  Scroll down at link (above) to click on forum link thread or click here on Kenya Information and Tourism Worldguides says Obama born in Kenya.


It doesn't make it so, but there sure are a lot of responsible sources that have gone on record saying so -- including Kenyan government officials.

Naturally, this information will be added to all these other sources that identify Kenya as Obama's home country and/or place of birth.

The cut 'n' paste image is archived in The Obama File.

Here is the image as it originally appeared and here is the image as it currently exists.  The reference to Barack Obama has mysteriously disappeared.

Just when I thought Obamafraudland couldn't make anything worse, I find out more than I want to know about the continual corruption and purposeful destruction that Obummer and the evil Dems are heaping upon the American people. If you have your head in the sand and aren't paying attention to all the bad news, SHAME ON YOU!

If you thought that the Progressive Dems in the Senate and Obama weren't in cahoots to intentionally destroy the Capitalism system of our Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America, then perhaps Harry ReiDUNCE's antics here might finally change your mind!

I really think that the Dems and Obama KNOW that they are going to lose in 2012 - and LOSE BIG - because of all the failed policies, the corruption, the overwhelmingly unnecessary spending, and the refusal to abandon their ill-gotten, crazy lunatic ways!!  THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL KIDS!!  If we can just get through all the muck they put us in and make it to the next election - then we will once again be on the RIGHT TRACK with a Conservative Republican president, Republican Conservative House majority, and Republican Senate majority to undo all of the terrible legislation that the Obamabots have wreaked upon our nation and people!

And, in "the most ridiculous poll category, read Gateway Pundit's post:


In May Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance.
A recent J-Street poll suggests that a majority of American Jews support Obama’s plan to hand over the Holy Land to the Hamas-Fatah Alliance.
By the way… George Soros funds J-Street.

Jimmy T sums up this stupid notion quite well:

I used to work for a Jewish family in one of their businesses. I know many Jews through this connection. Most voted for bambi. NOW, it’s anybody but bambi for them. They don’t want their sacred sites turned over and despise bambi for ever proposing it. Most all of their friends and family feel the same way. People can make a poll say whatever they want depending on the question and how it’s framed. I don’t believe a word of this from this Soros backed group.

The next time you hear ObamaLiar claiming that "most Americans agree with him," you will now know that he is OUTWARDLY LYING TO YOU!! Take a look at this post:

The Plan to Destroy Israel's Economy: A Must View for all Friends of Freedom

I could post dozens more links to important blog posts, but let me end with an email I recently received that gives us an idea for WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT THIS DEBT CRISIS DEBACLE and all of the grievances we have against the self-declared tyrant - "king" Obama!!


The events of the past few days once again show how self-
absorbed and self-promotional President Obama can be, even
during a time of national emergency.

The man who has personally contributed more to the
overwhelming financial crisis gripping our nation than
any other president or elected official has refused to
support a balanced budget amendment - even shamelessly
using the Constitution to try to defend his indefensible

This from a president whose actions have continually
subverted and manipulated the Constitution to advance
his overtly socialist political agenda.

That's why next Thursday, Liberty Counsel is sending our 23
specific grievances to the President (a man who operates
more like a modern-day King George III than an elected official
bound by an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United
States!) and many other elected and unelected officials.
These 23 grievances are at the heart of our powerful
"Declaration of Independence 2011."

We will deliver this document with its list of specific
grievances to the Obama administration, Congress, and
other bureaucrats who need to get the message that in
America, we don't tolerate tyrants! Please go here now
to read the full document and be included in this very
important delivery:

Liberty Petition

++Our grievances against King Barack Obama.

Here are just a few of the 23 grievances we are filing against
King Obama and the left-wing, elitist political class that
supports him and are bent on destroying our nation:

Barack Obama and his administration have...

Fraudulently installed a national health care system
against the will of the people, on its face an example
of illegal wealth distribution, while repeatedly
violating the Constitution in doing so...

Squandered the nation's resources, creating
insurmountable public debt...

Enacted an administrative measure forcing American
tax payers to pay for abortions in foreign nations...

Promoted same-sex "marriage" against the will of the
majority of Americans, advanced same-sex adoption, and
directed an arbitrary policy shift to normalize same-sex
relations in the United States armed forces...

Engaged in several "world tours" to apologize for
America, bowing to foreign tyrants...

And appointed any number of extra-constitutional,
unelected and unaccountable executive "czars."

These are just a few of the egregious violations listed in
the "Declaration of Independence 2011" that expose the
specific ways in which the Obama administration has
subverted and bypassed the Constitution of the United
States of America.

These grievances are so severe that we felt duty-bound as
a public interest law firm to re-cast what is widely
considered to be the most important single document in
American history - the Declaration of Independence - in
today's setting, reflecting the political and governmental
situation we face today.

We need YOUR signature on this Declaration (which
was known as a "bill of particulars" at the hour of
our nation's founding) before we deliver it next
Thursday. Click here to read the entire document and
to sign our comprehensive "Declaration of Independence

Liberty Counsel is rallying tens of thousands of Americans
to join together and send a clear message that WE WILL NOT
SUBMIT to out-of-touch elected officials who ignore the
clear will of the American people!

In just a few days, we have already enrolled tens of
thousands of concerned Americans in this powerful statement
of discontent with what is happening - not in 1776, but
right now in the summer of 2011!
Proclaim YOUR stand against tyranny! We want to tell the
President, his administration, the media, our elected
representatives, government bureaucrats, and whoever else
needs to hear about it, that patriotic Americans REFUSE
to stand by while leftists take our nation apart, plank
by plank!

This is a citizen action that every freedom-loving American
should take! Now more than ever, the enemies of true liberty
need to know that those of us who love liberty have not
given up!

Independence 2011."

I signed it...DID YOU??

Allen West Puts Little Debbie In Her Place

Gateway Pundit has the story: It’s On!… Rep. Allen West Confronts Lying “Vile & Despicable” Leftist Wasserman Schultz.
That blog has some of the best comments to read about the verbal battle going on between Representative Allen West, a TEA Party Patriot member of Congress, and that vile little Debbie Wasserman-Schultz - a.k.a. one of the whiny Dem female attack dogs in the House.


After Rep. Allen West left the House floor today, lying leftist hack Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him and lied about the Republican plan. A disgruntled Allen West sent out this response to the vile DNC chair.
Via the Politico:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Whenever Wasserman-Schultz made an appearance on the Fox News Channel, I would cringe. I knew that a lie against the GOP and/or an attack against a Republican was forthcoming. The woman has her mind so set in the mentally disordered liberal/progressive political sphere, it's a wonder if she ever utters any semblance of truth.

Recall how she stood up for Weiner during Weinergate? How could anyone take her seriously after that flub? Oh...but there is much more. Just do a search through the comments at Gateway Pundit to learn about the unfortunate history between her and Allen West when he was running for Congress in Florida.

Here are a few good comments/links to check out:

Wasserman, or Shultz, or whoever the hell she is = JAUL with credentials. Yah, Go Colonel!

J.A.U.L. (pronounced “jowl”): Just Another Unhinged Leftie.
Liberty At Stake Blogspot
“Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

Heh heh...."Just Another Unhinged Leftie."Very accurate description of Little Debbie! I call her that because she makes herself appear very small and petty when she attacks someone like Rep. Allen West - especially after he left the House chambers! She doesn't have the courage to face him in person, so she tries to blast him when he isn't there.

Rep. Allen West has more to say:

bg commented:

Allen West
7 hours ago:
“This is simply unacceptable what is happening here in Congress. We
are paid to govern and work with each other. Americans deserve better”

This guy makes a good point:

owl commented:
Schultz reminds me of Weenie, same type of nasty. They both think they can lie as they rave into the camera.

Thank you Rep Allen West.

And the question we all must ask about this incident:

DANEgerus commented:
Why doesn’t Ben Smith of Politico report Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s frequent H8 speech and ad hominem as a “tirades”?

Why isn’t Debbie Wasserman-Schultz a “racist”?

Another good point:

Shannon Ward commented:
She is a very vile person and has no idea about what she is talking about often. She also has no idea about history. Her remark about “Jim Crow Laws” were a little much. By the way, if she is so concerned about the medicare cuts, why didn’t she address the fact that 500 billion dollars cut out of medicare and put into funding Obamacare?

In case you missed it, this was the attack:

Chisum commented:

Above the fray?

Wasserman Schultz, in whose neighboring South Florida district West lives, provoked his tirade with remarks after he left the House floor today, in which she responded — without naming him — to the Tea Party freshman’s support for “Cut, Cap, and Balance” legislation to raise the debt ceiling.

“The gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a Member from South Florida,” Wasserman Schultz said, saying the legislation “slashes Medicaid and critical investments essential to winning the future in favor of protecting tax breaks for Big Oil, millionaires, and companies who ship American jobs overseas.”

Yep, a classic example of ‘staying above the fray’.

I think that the following comment is a fitting way to end this post. It reveals what the argument(s) between liberal/progressive/Socialists like Wasserman-Schultz and a True American Military Hero/TEA Party Patriot/Constitutional Republic supporter like Representative Allen West of Florida is REALLY all about:

LANE WEBB commented:
Congressman West,

Congratulations upon your having become a target of the Communists in Congress, whom has identified you as being their enemy; with this declaration, you have confirmed many of us as your loyal Constitutionalists that will always defend and rely upon you as our faithful representative to continue defending our God, our Country and that of our Families!

One More Step Away...

Brandon Heath's new CD has a hit song called, "Leaving Eden." The lyrics describe so well what many Christians feel about the culture here in the United States. So much sin, evil and death is obvious to us all. But, perhaps, it is the subtle, little things that also add up and take us "one more step away" from Eden - away  from what our God of the Bible wanted us to have before sin entered the world. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life - no one comes to the Father but by Him. And each step that is taking people away from such truth takes another soul away from the saving grace of Christ.

Urgency and Necessity of The Truth War

Chapter Three of John MacArthur's book, The Truth War: Fighting for Certainty in an Age of Deception is entitled "Constrained Into Conflict: Why We Must Fight for the Faith."

I have had this book for a long time. Every so often, I go back and read some of the chapters. If you do a search on this blog, you will find at least four blog posts about the book. Recently, I ran across a link to several John MacArthur Videos. Many of them are excerpts from his book The Truth War.

Years ago, I bookmarked the final three pages of chapter three. It is subtitled, "When It's Time To Go To War." I found it very interesting that the verse in Jude 3, which contains the phrase "contend earnestly for the faith" is actually stronger in meaning when translated from the Greek. MacArthur writes:

The expression "contend earnestly" is translated from a strong Greek verb epagonizomai,literally meaning "agonize against." The word describes an intensive, arduous, drawn-out fight. There is nothing passive, peaceful, or easy about it. Jude "exhorted" them - meaning he urged and commanded them - to wage a mighty battle on behalf of the true faith.

So then literally, we are to "agonize against" the falsehoods that creep up into Christianity that often, quite frankly, turn Christian truth into something unrecognizable. I could cite dozens of examples. But two of the most contentious moral problems of our time are the acceptance of homosexual behavior and abortion of children in the womb.

There will always be people who try and twist the truth to their own advantage. Many times it is used as an excuse to cover their sins. But there is only One Provision for the forgiveness of sins - and that is Jesus Christ's sacrificial death on the cross. Christ is the only way to be reconciled unto the Father.

MacArthur continues:

Jude himself says he felt the necessity to write this command. He employs a verb that speaks of pressure. In other words, he sensed a strong, God-given compulsion to write these things. He was not writing them because he took some kind of perverse glee in being militant. He was not responding to a momentary whimsy or personal anger. This was critical, and since the writers of Scripture never wrote by human self-will, but only as they were moved by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:21), the extreme urgency of Jude reflects the sovereign influence of the Holy Spirit, and therefore also the mind of Christ.

I love that last line - "This was critical, and since the writers of Scripture never wrote by human self-will, but only as they were moved by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:21), the extreme urgency of Jude reflects the sovereign influence of the Holy Spirit, and therefore also the mind of Christ."

I don't know about you, but in my lifetime I have NEVER seen so many liars getting away with their sin and corruption than over the past two and a half years. It seems that ever since the Obama administration got into office, any semblance of a reasonable government was out the window. As one example, we only need to turn on the T.V. each day and hear the bad news about the current debt crisis to understand how fallen man has gotten us into such a mess. Then, in the next news segment we find out that Obama has raised 86 million dollars for his re-election campaign. Why would anyone in their right mind want to re-elect this monster?? Answer: money, power, influence, and the desire to "fundamentally transform America" which is code word for collapsing our Constitutional Republic Capitalist system and bringing in a cesspool combination of communism, socialism, Islamo-fascism and sharia law. What could go wrong? But all of that is for another blog post.

MacArthur continues:

We thus have an urgent mandate from God Himself to do our part in the Truth War. The Holy Spirit, through the pen of Jude, is urging Christians to exercise caution, discernment, courage, and the will to contend earnestly for the truth.

Notice what we are supposed to be fighting for. It is not anything petty, personal, mundane, or ego related. This warfare has a very narrow objective. What we are called to defend is no less than "the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints."

Jude is speaking of apostolic doctrine (Acts 2:42) - objective Christian truth - the faith, as delivered from Jesus through the agency of the Holy Spirit by the apostles to the church. As he says in verse 17: "Remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Notice: no one discovered or invented the Christian faith. It was delivered to us. It was not as if someone mystically ascended into the transcendental realm and drew down an understanding of the truth. We don't need an enlightened guru to open the mysteries of the faith for us (cf. 1 John 2:27). The truth was entrusted by God to the whole church - intact and "once for all." It came by revelation, through the teaching of the apostles as preserved for us in Scripture. Jude speaks of "the faith" as a complete body of truth already delivered - so there is no need to seek additional revelation or to embellish the substance of "the faith" in any way. Our task is simply to interpret, understand, publish, and defend the truth God has once and for all delivered to the church.

The fact that the Bible is the Written Word of God, Jesus is the Living Word of God, and the Holy Spirit of God guides us into all truth allows born again believers in Jesus Christ to "interpret, understand, publish, and defend the truth God has once and for all delivered to the church." How can we spot untruths, heresy, apostasy and lies? By making sure that what is being espoused by any preacher, teacher, or layperson is not contradictory to what the Bible teaches!

John MacArthur explains:

That is what the Truth War is ultimately all about. It is not mere wrangling between competing earthly ideologies. It is not simply a campaign to refine someones religious creed or win a denominational spitting contest. It is not a battle of wits over arcane theological fine points. It is not an argument for sport. It is not like a school debate, staged to see who is more skilled or more clever in the art of argumentation. It is not merely academic in any sense. And it is certainly not a game. It is a very serious struggle to safeguard the heart and soul of truth itself and to unleash that truth against the powers of darkness - in hopes of rescuing the eternal souls of men and women who have been unwittingly ensnared by the trap of devilish deception.

This is a battle we cannot wage effectively if we always try to come across to the world as merely nice, nonchalant, docile, agreeable, and fun-loving people. We must not take our cues from people who are perfectly happy to compromise the truth wherever possible "for harmony's sake." Friendly dialogue may sound affable and pleasant. But neither Christ or the apostles ever confronted serious, soul-destroying error by building collegial relationships with false teachers. In fact, we are expressly forbidden to do that (Romans 16:17; 2 Corinthians 6:14-15; 2 Thessalonians 3:6; 2 Timothy 3:5; 2 John 10-11). Scripture is clear about how we are to respond when the very foundations of the Christian faith are under attack, and Jude states it succinctly: it is our bounden duty to contend earnestly for the faith.

I have to chuckle each time I see someones car with the bumper sticker that says "COEXIST" where each letter represents a different religion. It seems to me that the liberal/progressive advocates of such a symbol often hate those who adhere to true Christian faith and they tend not to hide their disdain. Just watch some of the alphabet soup news programs and commentary shows out there and you will see what I mean!

Why is there such hatred for Christians? I think that it is because of what Jesus told us in these verses:

Jhn 15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before [it hated] you.

Jhn 15:19 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

Jhn 15:25 "But [this happened] that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'

Read the entire chapter of John 15. It starts out Jhn 15:1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser." Jesus is speaking in these verses and He goes on to reveal that Jhn 15:5 "I am the vine, you [are] the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."

John 15 is such a comfort these days. Why? Because Jesus has warned us that followers of him will be hated. It is part of the "turf" in the warfare we are in for the souls of men.

John MacArthur continues:

Notice carefully: Jude is not suggesting (nor am I) that Christians should contend among themselves over every petty disagreement or divide into factions over every personality conflict. In fact, that is the very thing the apostle Paul condemned in 1 Corinthians 3:3-7. Divisiveness and sectarianism are terrible sins that hurt the church when major divisions are manufactured out of petty differences over trivial, doubtful, indifferent, or less-than-vital matter (Romans 14:1).

We cannot include differences over abortion or homosexual practice. They are not in the "petty disagreement" categories. Both of them break at least one, if not more of the Ten Commandments. However, a difference over whether a hard Christian rock band sings a Christmas song or a more traditional choir sings it better would be a petty argument. Such a thing is a matter of taste.

John MacArthur continues:

Now, you might think that the difference between a picayune disagreement and a serious threat to some core truth of Christianity would always be obvious and clear-cut. Usually, it is. Most of the time, it is easy enough to see the distinction between a peripheral issue and a matter of urgent and fundamental importance. But not always. And here is where mature wisdom and careful discernment become absolutely crucial for every Christian: sometimes serious threats to our faith come in subtle disguise so that they are barely noticeable. And false teachers like to surround their deadly error with some truth. Therein lies the seduction. We must never assume that things like the teacher's reputation, the warmth of his personality, or majority opinion about him are perfectly safe barometers of whether his teaching is really dangerous or not. We also shouldn't imagine that common sense, intuition, or first impressions are reliable ways of determining whether this or that error poses a serious threat or not. Scripture, and Scripture alone, is the only safe guide in this area.

As Dr. MacArthur states in that last paragraph sentence, "Scripture, and Scripture alone, is the only safe guide in this area."


The term "Scripture" itself appears in the Bible 32 times!

This is a beautiful verse:

Gal 3:22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Weird Comment

The following comment appeared in my inbox yesterday. Besides ranking as one of the weirdest ones I've seen in a long time, I am quite frankly finding it difficult to label the beliefs of the person who posted it. Since he/she seems to believe in "gods," at first glance he/she might be labeled as a "polytheist."

Some of what he/she has written makes sense, but some of it is way out there - not at all adhering to true Christian faith or Biblical discernment.

This is why it is ESSENTIAL that individual Christian believers know what is written in the Bible so that they do not get caught up in some kind of weird, guru-led gobbledygook that could lead them astray, towards a false gospel and away from the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus warned us that the closer we get to the end times, there will be many false prophets out there who will attempt to lead people astray - "to fool the very elect...if that were possible." You see, it is much more difficult to lead an ambassador of Christ into error, heresy, or apostasy. Why? Because he/she is led by the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God to help with discernment into all truth. And how does one know that he/she is being led by the Holy Spirit? The Spirit of God will NEVER contradict what Jesus has proclaimed as truth. The Holy Spirit adheres to Christ and what is written in the Bible. Therefore, you can see how important it is to have the knowledge and wisdom that is gleaned by reading, studying, and applying the Written Word of God in this life.

The following is a copy of the comment that I am referring to [Note: I have left misspellings intact].  It left me shaking my head at the convoluted nature of this person's belief system.  If you are a Christian, how many errors can you point out?

~ Christine


Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "San Fransicko Folsom St. Sadists":

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
1. Alcohol
2. Drugs
3. Preditory "earning"
4. Homosexuality
5. Gambling
6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet's history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
Which one is it? Probably both:::
One transitions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to their Chosen One.
You are faced with a lifetime to work and prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time working, etc.

Betty Ford Was Staunchly Pro-Abortion

When I found out how staunchly pro-abortion Betty Ford was it made me sick to my stomach. Anyone who thinks that it is OK to kill a defenseless baby in the womb of his/her mother is either deluded or evil. Those who cheer on the pro-choice crowd are in direct violation of God's commandment written in the Bible, "Do not murder."   What's more, such people are breaching the words of our Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Now that Ford has passed away, perhaps she is finding out the eternal consequences of her error.

A Dog Story

We are a family of dog lovers. Our two dogs are so precious to us - they are so much a part of our family that it would be hard to live life without them! We have a Puggle (Beagle and Pug mix) and a Dachshund/Pekingese mix (he looks like a long-haired Dachshund).

Every so often, a funny thing happens while walking the dogs. This morning, I took them out for a walk earlier than usual. It was around 8:00 a.m. Up the street, there is a house that has decor out front that reminds me of the house in the movie called "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." They have a scrolled black fence all around the property and several Greek statues scattered all around the front yard. Typically, the dogs that live there are either in the house or in the back yard. I hear them barking occasionally when the dogs and I walk by. However, this morning they were running around in the front yard! One was a big white dog. The other two were smaller dogs; one white and one black. As we approached the fencing area, the dogs came right up to the fence and barked. Suddenly, all three were out of the fenced area charging up the street towards us! I didn't know what to do at first. My dogs had never done the "meet and greet" with these dogs so I didn't know whether or not they would be friendly. I was ready to pick both of them up in case the big dog pounced on them. But he was friendly, as were the other two smaller dogs.

Next, a man dressed in pajamas and flip flops walks up the street towards us. All the dogs were mingling together, but then a large red truck started zooming up the street towards us. I waved my hands at the driver telling him that there was a small loose dog in the path of his truck! Luckily, he slowed down, and then drove by slowly when the dogs were clear of his path.

Meanwhile, pajama man caught up with us, but his dogs all took off up the street. I told him, "you are probably going to need a car and some leashes to catch your dogs!"

I tried to grab the collar of one of the dogs but it dashed away before I could catch him. The man continued up the street while I walked in the same direction towards my home.  He obviously was thinking that he would capture all three of the dogs himself. I thought, "fat chance" but didn't say anything to him directly. My hint to get the car and some leashes apparently fell on deaf ears.  At least he did have one leash and was able to capture his own black dog.

As we walked up the street, I learned that this man had recently ( 2 months ago) moved back into his parent's home. The small black dog (which he successfully captured) was his. The other two dogs belonged to his parents. As we were walking along (and the two dogs were running up the street, far away from us) he told me that this has happened before. Apparently, the dogs have escaped under the driveway entrance gate because it is high enough up off the ground that even the big dog could easily escape under it! The man told me that the three dogs don't usually leave the yard - unless they see other dogs on leashes coming down the street. (No....DUH!! I thought.)

He apologized for the disruption the dogs were causing to our walk. I said that I was concerned that his loose dogs might get hit by a car. He mentioned that one time, two of the dogs owned by the parents got out and were gone for two hours! They came back filled with dirt, brush and burrs in their hair! He mentioned that they headed for the gully, a wooded area between two houses just up the street from my home. I know the area very well! Coyotes like to hang out in that spot. This is why we can't even leave our dogs unattended in our fenced in back yard.  Coyotes can jump high and over most back yard fences! I didn't tell pajama man all of this, but perhaps next time I will share the recent horror stories I have learned about coyotes attacking dogs in the area.

A neighbor across the street from me said that one day she and her dog were confronted by three coyotes!! She stopped dead in her tracks, but the coyotes ran away. Then she told me that a coyote got a neighbor's dog (they live at the top of the cul-de-sac) in its jaws and the woman grabbed her precious Hannah from the coyote! Hannah had to get stitches all along her belly! Thank God the dog lived!!  Brave owner to get her dog out of the jaws of a coyote!

I am always appalled when I see any dog owner letting their dog(s) run loose in an area where coyotes roam free. Next time I see pajama man, I will be sure to tell him that!! His parents need to block off the fence gate area so that the dogs can't get out!

And I'm getting some pepper spray for protection!

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

The outrage that is swirling around our nation since the Casey Anthony "not guilty" verdict was handed down is a logical reaction, especially if you think she was definitely guilty of killing her daughter Caylee. On the other hand, if you are of the mindset that such outrage is not necessary because you believe that Casey was either "not guilty" or that the prosecution did not prove its case; then you aren't angry with the jury decision.

It truly is very sad, horrible, tragic, and upsetting to see someone get away with murder. But that's what evil does.

Jesus told us, "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! For I have overcome the world."

While reading several blog and Face book comments, I have found that many Christians believe that little Caylee is in heaven with Jesus. It is a comfort to know that the Bible does tell us that there is an age of accountability (usually considered as age 7 up to age 12) where a child is automatically admitted into heaven upon death because such a child has not reached the age where he/she would be held accountable for his/her sins - precisely because a decision to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior has not been made.

There is no doubt that evil exists in this world. One of the worst kinds of evil is harming a child. Killing a child is unfathomable to most people - especially those who are loving mothers and fathers to their own children. Jesus had harsh words for those who would commit offenses against children:

Mat 18:6 "But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mar 9:42 "But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.

Luk 17:2 "It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

But the promises of our Messiah - Jesus Christ - fulfilled what Micah wrote of in the Old Testament:

Mic 7:19 He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our [fn] sins Into the depths of the sea.

There is forgiveness. It is the gift of God through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross. It is the ONLY WAY that ANYONE can be forgiven for their sins.

The evil that exists in this world is because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. From Adam and Eve's original sin - to the sins of today - we all "fade as a leaf" because of our iniquities.

"The greatest evil is the rejection of God and the hate towards man." - Pastor Miles McPherson.

When did Pastor Miles say that quote? In the first of his series on The Rock San Diego: "Why Do Bad Things Happen - Part 1, Why Evil?"

I highly recommend watching and listening to each of the sermons in this series. It may help to put many things in perspective.

The next sermon in the series is The Rock San Diego: "Why Do Bad Things Happen - Part 2, Why Worship?"

Happy Independence Day Weekend!

Hope everyone enjoys a safe and happy Independence Day weekend! Mine didn't start out very well. My blog was hacked into on Friday. I think that I made a grave editing error and my dashboard was exposed for a few minutes. When I realized the mistake, I immediately erased what was causing the problem. Shortly after that, I could no longer log into my dashboard. I tried to get into my blog dashboard several times over the next few hours, but to no avail. I finally closed my browser and shut off the computer for the night, hoping that perhaps the problem would get fixed overnight by blogger.

This is basically what happened. After utilizing the "preview" button to look at my new post (Exposing A Loony Leftist Lie,) it just suddenly disappeared from the edit/compose box! I then received a message that I had never seen before. It said something like, "Post not saved. Could possibly have been deleted by another person editing the post." Those were not the exact words, but that was basically what the message was telling me. I got nervous. I thought that perhaps someone now had complete access to my dashboard.

Several choices entered into my mind. I thought about deleting this blog and starting over. I also thought about creating a new blog within a provider other than Blogger. I have noticed several of the major blogs that I have in my sidebar have done that. Perhaps they wanted to get away from Google/Blogger too.

My next thought was that I would loose over five years of blog posts if I just went ahead and deleted this blog! That would be a lot of work gone down the drain, so the option of deleting this blog was no longer on the table. Fortunately, the next morning, I was able to log onto my blog dashboard and everything seemed O.K.

Anyway, I would like to thank the readers who frequent here and the many guests who come by this blog via search engines. I hope that what you searched for, and read here at Talk Wisdom helped you.

As I walked my dogs this morning, I noticed that many of my neighbors have flags displayed outside their homes. Some have flag poles and display the flag every day. My husband recently put up a large flag near a window outside our home. We have always had a small one on a stick positioned upon our "Welcome" sign on our front door. 

It makes me happy to see the symbol of our nation and the freedom that it represents displayed by so many neighbors! I think that in these difficult times, with the kind of gangster government that our nation is suffering from, displaying the proud symbol of our patriotism towards our beloved country is even more important than ever. There are people who live in this nation who obviously show their hatred for our flag and what it stands for. They adhere to philosophies and a type of government that is foreign to most Americans. But the freedoms and liberty that the flag represents allows such people to trample on the very symbol that we love; but they, unfortunately, hate. Ironic, isn't it? I also think that it is very very sad.

I recently saw a movie called, "The Majestic." Jim Carrey starred in the movie along with Martin Landau and Amanda Detmer. I really liked the movie all the way up until the end. I guess you could say that I felt the same way one commenter at the link did when he wrote:

"I first hated this film when I saw it. I think my opinion's softened on it over time, but I will always hate it for the fact that it trivializes the HUAC trials and the seriousness of the anti-commie hysteria of the 1950s." - bxc85

I sincerely think that the ending of the movie was, in a not-so-subtle way, an attempt to re-write history. It did not project, as "bxc85" stated above, the seriousness of the anti-communist sentiment of the 1950's.

Just think about how people felt about radical Islam just after that tragic and horrific day on 9/11/01. Would people who lived through that change their minds about the threat of jihadist terrorism over the course of history? Would a little town of patriotic military families end up cheering a victorious sounding speech in a congressional hearing if the person speaking the words was a pro-radical Islam supporter? I don't think so!!

It is so typical of liberal leftists to gloss over any person or group who is, has become, or always has been radical and dangerous to our way of life. What more can I say about this?

I also think that it is a terrible thing to realize that this movie was made in the same year that the terrorism attack on our nation occurred. Perhaps it was made and released before that tragic day, but I also think that it was inappropriate considering how dangerous communism and nazism was in the 1950's. I can't help but wonder what my father would have thought of the movie. He fought in WWII, and could not bring himself to discuss the horrors of that war. To trivialize communist sentiment during a Congressional hearing should be anathema to any truly thinking person.

I was brought up to believe that communism was very bad. Why? Because MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WERE KILLED! President Ronald Reagan cemented that belief with how often he discussed the need to defeat it. Since he worked in both Hollywood and in both state (California) and federal government, he was very familiar and aware of the communist threat back then. What would he have thought about the ending of that movie?

It was a strange experience to view a film that I liked at first, but then found very disturbing at the end.

For those of you who have seen the movie, any thoughts or comments?

In conclusion, have a Happy Fourth of July holiday!

Exposing A Loony Leftist Lie

Ann Coulter has a great column up over at Human Events. Glenn Beck vs. The Mob

Liberals are not like most Americans. They are the biggest pussies on Earth, city-bred weaklings who didn't play a sport and have never been in a fight in their entire lives. Their mothers made excuses for them when they threw tantrums and spent way too much time praising them during toilet training.

I could draw a mug shot of every one of Beck's tormentors, and I wasn't there.

Beck and his family would have been fine at an outdoor rap concert. They would have been fine at a sporting event. They would have been fine at any paid event, mostly because people who work for the government and live in rent-controlled apartments would be too cheap to attend.

Only a sad leftist with a crappy job could be so brimming with self-righteousness to harangue a complete stranger in public.

A liberal's idea of being a bad-ass is to say vicious things to a conservative public figure who can't afford to strike back. Getting in a stranger's face and hurling insults at him, knowing full well he has too much at risk to deck you, is like baiting a bear chained to a wall.

They are not only exploiting our lawsuit-mad culture, they are exploiting other people's manners. I know I'll be safe because this person has better manners than I do.

These brave-hearts know exactly what they can get away with. They assault a conservative only when it's a sucker-punch, they outnumber him, or he can't fight back for reasons of law or decorum

Liberals don't get that when you're outnumbering the enemy 100-1, you're not brave.

But they're not even embarrassed. To the contrary, being part of the majority makes liberals feel great! Honey, wasn't I amazing? I stood in a crowd of liberals and called that conservative a c**t. Wasn't I awesome?

This is a liberal's idea of raw physical courage.

When someone does fight back, liberals transform from aggressor to victim in an instant collapsing on the ground and screaming bloody murder. I've seen it happen in a nearly empty auditorium when there was quite obviously no other human within 5 feet of the gutless invertebrate.

Heh heh heh! That Ann is something else! She always manages to inject a lot of humor while making critical talking points in her topic of choice! Many of her books deal with the truth about far-leftist liberals who fashion themselves to be angry-mob studs, when in reality they are more like slimy, smarmy slugs.

It's great to know that Glenn and his team have exposed the people who spilled wine on his wife and made disparaging comments in front of his daughter. They must be so proud...huh? They are getting their 5 minutes of fame. But what they probably don't realize is that when they grow up (if they ever put down the Obama Kool-Aid and wake up to reality), what they did that day to Mr. Beck and his family was mean and more embarrassing for them than the prospect of having that moment of fame. If they ever DO apply for a job or even get a job, I wonder how the future employer would feel about their stupid antics in the park?

Take a look at the evidence that has been gathered against the liar who claimed "innocence" to the accusations:

The Woman Seated Near Beck at Movie Claims Innocence…But What Does Twitter Tell Us…(With UPDATES!)

Moral of the story. In this day and age of Twitter, FaceBook, IPhone photos, Blogs etc.; it is much more difficult to get away with a lie. Even though this sorry excuse for a woman deleted the online information, Beck's staff took screen shots beforehand, exposing the loony leftist lady's lie for all the world to see.
