Halloween

October 31, 2009

I don’t really “celebrate” this day.   I firmly believe it is rooted in evil.  If that makes me a weirdo then so be it.  All I know is that God will not be mocked.

And I do believe that people in the occult use this day to celebrate evil.

I have two articles for you to read.  The first one is a bit off the wall,  but I find some parts of it to be true.

The second article is a little more moderate in it’s view on Christians and Halloween.

Why Christians Should Celebrate Halloween

Friday, 30 October 2009 04:43 PM EDT Ken Eastburn

Halloween is one of those days, one of those things, that Christians have a hard time coming to terms with.  It is like whether to shop at a store that supports a cause that is evil or fundamentally opposed to the message of Christianity – what do you do?  When I asked my Twitter and Facebook friends whether Christians should celebrate Halloween, I got varied responses.  One person indicated that they didn’t celebrate it because it is all about death and Jesus was all about life.  Another had indicated that they didn’t think it was a problem since the holiday essentially boils down to getting dressed up and going trick-or-treating for most Americans.  When asking my friend Google this question, he (she?) was kind enough to pull up a plethora of blogs and articles ranging from Who cares? to Sure … if you want to put your kid in danger of hell. (These are my summaries of others’ thoughts.)

The bottom line is this: Halloween has no power that you refuse to give it.  It is evil to the extent that you buy into the beliefs behind it.  If you don’t buy those beliefs, then there’s no harm in throwing on a costume and having fun.  In fact, that may be the very thing God is asking you to do.

Have you asked Him?

Hope and change??

October 30, 2009

I want my change back.  And my hope.

 

I believe we have a president who doesn’t actually know how to run the country.

His “fundamental changes” are ruining this country.

He has done absolutely nothing to move forward.  The administration is chock full of “progressives”.  To me, that means absolutely nothing.  I am not impressed with what has happened in the last ten months.

Where is the transparency??  It’s not there,   everything has been done in secrecy.  Even the resignations of his czars and cabinet members have been at midnight on a holiday weekend.

Where is all the discussion about health reform on CSPAN??  BO promised there would be everyone at the table for the health reform negotiations.  AND he promised it would be on CSPAN for all of us to watch.   AND,  he told us that all the bills would be posted on the internet for us to read!!

NONE of this has happened.  I have lost hope.

I want my change back.

Ten months into it and he needs to start taking some responsibility.  It this had been a Republican administration pulling this crap, there would be an outcry from every corner of the nation.  From all the press and critics too.

 

RINO hunting.

October 29, 2009

<Guest post>

We don’t donate to the RNC or other organizations.

I’m tired of them putting up people like Dede Scozzofava under the Republican banner.  Yeah, when I think of a Republican I think of people endorsed by the Working Families Party and Planned Parenthood, who favor card check, the stimuluspalooza bill, tax increases and other things.  This race in upstate New York has a Republican candidate with positions to the LEFT of the Democrat!  The national party is spending hundreds of thousands to prop up this loser while attacking Doug Hoffman, a solid conservative running under the Conservative Party banner.

People like Newt Gingrich want us to just shut up and vote for the (R) by the name.  I think you need to BE an (R) before you get our money or our endorsement.

I’m only going to support individual candidates who support my beliefs, and that includes those in primary races who are challenging RINOs.  There’s plenty of those out there and they need to be culled!

Ads like this, which Dede is attacking as a “dirty trick”, tell the story.  http://www.politico.com/blogs/scorecard/1009/Republican_dirty_tricks_in_NY_23.html

Leave it to a liberal to say that accurately stating her position is a “dirty trick.”

Gallup Poll

October 28, 2009

I thought this was interesting,  mostly because a lot of people I know claim to be on the left.

I have decided that I am no longer going to refer to myself as a Republican.  I prefer to say that I am a Conservative.  Mostly because I fall more in line with the conservative way of thinking rather than what passes for the Republican party these days.  They are more like RINO’s and CINO’s.

Here’s the poll article.

Conservatives Maintain Edge as Top Ideological Group

Compared with 2008, more Americans “conservative” in general, and on issues

by Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ — Conservatives continue to outnumber moderates and liberals in the American populace in 2009, confirming a finding that Gallup first noted in June. Forty percent of Americans describe their political views as conservative, 36% as moderate, and 20% as liberal. This marks a shift from 2005 through 2008, when moderates were tied with conservatives as the most prevalent group.

“Changes among political independents appear to be the main reason the percentage of conservatives has increased nationally over the past year: the 35% of independents describing their views as conservative in 2009 is up from 29% in 2008.”

All of this has potentially important implications at the ballot box, particularly for the 2010 midterm elections. The question is whether increased conservatism, particularly among independents, will translate into heightened support for Republican candidates. Right now, it appears it may. Although Gallup polling continues to show the Democratic Party leading the Republican Party in Americans’ party identification, that lead has been narrowing since the beginning of the year and now stands at six points, the smallest since 2005. According to Gallup Managing Editor Jeff Jones, “the Democratic-Republican gap is narrowing because more independents now say they lean to the Republican Party.” That trend aligns with the recent changes in how independents perceive their own ideology and where they stand on some key issues.

Cable news ratings

October 28, 2009

I love the last paragraph. CNN (among other left wing radicals) just refuses to accept that FNC is a legitimate news organization.   The left just doesn’t like the fact that a more conservative new channel is kicking their butts!!

CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks

By Bill Carter

CNN, which invented the cable news network more than two decades ago, will hit a new competitive low with its prime-time programs in October, finishing fourth – and last – among the cable news networks with the audience that all the networks rely on for their advertising…………..

CNN released a statement Monday saying, “CNN’s ratings are always going to be more dependent on the news environment, much more so than opinion-based programming especially in prime time.”

Abortion

October 27, 2009

“One dead,  one wounded”

This is an absolutely true statement.   The baby is dead and the mother is wounded.  Emotionally, and physically.  Some people don’t believe that abortion harms the mother,  but it is true.

Abortion is murder. A baby is a baby at conception whether people choose to believe that or not,  it is the truth.

There has been some talk recently about the Kennedy’s and how they are for abortion but how can that be if they are Catholic?

They can be for seperation of church and state and that’s how they rationalize being pro abortion.

Personally they can believe it’s wrong and still be pro abortion.  But they want women to have the choice of killing their babies.

So, if you are pro abortion, or pro choice,  you are anti life.   It’s just that simple and people should just accept it.  But the left gets up in arms about that,  saying all sorts of terrible things if you don’t believe in abortion.  Let ’em,  they only have to live with themselves and look in the mirror at their murderous faces each day.

Abortion = MURDER.  It’s killing a live baby.

Another Bernie book review

And it’s a good one too.

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37)

There are people in there that I have never heard of and now I at least know who they are and what they are up to.

Then you have the usual suspects–Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon (who named their child after a murderer), Jennifer Anniston et al.

Oh, and let’s not forget Janeane Godawful.  She is by far the worst of all but surprisingly she is not number ONE.  She should be though.

It’s a good quick read.
