Call it what it was and is: A THWARTED TERRORIST ATTACK! Is the man nuts or is this one of Obama's many denials? He just doesn't get it. Or at least he pretends so he can go out flying around the country on Air Force I doing what he loves best: Campaigning. Undoubtedly on our nickel, right? What a guy...

The other bit of news or maybe it's not new to you and I've been asleep at the switch, they even have a name for those unemployed citizens who are nearing the end of their unemployment: 99ers because their 99 weeks are coming to an end in the near future.

The first million will be hitting the wall in December and another 3 to 4 million by the end of April.

What will that do to the economy unless the private sector can get some straight answers on tax structure and necessary changes in Obamacare?

Even if it seems like a lost cause, please call anyone you know and plead with them to vote Tuesday. Do you have relatives or friends or even business associates in Nevada, Washington or California? Call them, please.

I somehow ended up on a mailing list for the Democrat Senatorial Committee and you would not believe the pressure they are putting on the millions of people who get their emails. And every big name you can think of has been signing letters and asking for anything from $5 to $10 to $25 every time. Sometimes as many as 2-3 a day. They are really working to move their base and we need to keep up our pressure also. Personal contacts are the best. Emails, cards, letters and robo calls just don't get the job done.

And a few prayers asking for guidance for all of us to do the best for our country.

God bless.........

The Patriot Post

If you are not already a subscriber, I highly recommend The Patriot Post at which always has interesting, informative and just plain common sense articles ranging from cartoons, to Founder's Quotes to inspire and commentary which will stand anyone in good stead. I must admit that I am not a follower of blogs like the Drudge report, Rush Limbaugh's thoughts and other extremely well known commentators. I fear that they are more interested in the numbers of readers and in some cases, their advertisers needs.

As most of you know, I have always looked for stories that will have an effect on the economy of our state and nation and above all, the ultimate effect on our own pocketbooks and bank accounts. The personal influence on the way we think and the way we act toward our friends and neighbors is not to be found on the web, but in what we are taught or glean from our studies on and attitude toward moral law, natural law and even eternal law. (This from a few weeks of attending a seminar fostering discussions on putting together our personal religious viewpoints plus the influences and benefits of living in a country where we have the freedom to do so.)

This was an opportunity to put a few things together at a critical point in history given that the election to be held next week will either confirm the loss of certain freedoms or open the door to the knowledge that we have time to save ourselves from further loss and reinstate previous and precious freedoms--both God given and those fostered from the beginnings of our Republic.

It is an absolute imperative that we use our rights as citizens and recognize that we need to put forth that little bit of extra effort in encouraging (in any way from push to shove) your friends, neighbors and relatives to vote. As one of the early church fathers put it, it is a moral obligation to exercise the rights of a good citizen ie., one who studies issues and candidates. Not only that, but that it is very "difficult to be a good Christian without being a good citizen." And all the people said "Amen."

God bless.......

Is Everything Redundant?

It just seems that everything political has been said before and not just once but many times over. It's just plain scary that pounding on the same misinformation is productive when mining for votes. At this point in time I only want it finished.

Maybe because I started this blog 2 years ago last August and wrote daily until our recent primary?

Some of the issues that have much to do with the global economy and the future of not only America, but other countries as well are still pertinent. Some recent headlines:

How to Reform Obamacare
Document Questions (re Foreclosures) Cloud Recovery
The U.S. Will Lose a China Trade War
Goodbye, Free Trade?
China Sharpens Its Steelmaking Game
Why Liberals Don't Get the Tea Party Movement
and my personal favorite--
Japan Scrambles for Rare Earth

The whole concept of rare earth minerals is fascinating and can make or break specific companies and even countries. We've discussed it before, and will do so again since we can't be sure if our readers are up to speed.

I am really looking forward to a weekly posting concerning issues rather than the personalities and politics of the elections. If you have suggestions for topics you'd like me to research, please feel free to comment.

In the meantime, it's time to swap out summer and winter clothes closets. And, if you're a little lazy like me, run those washable gloves and scarves through the laundry.

The colors are absolutely gorgeous!
God bless........

Mark Brewer Lies Again: manufactures "sleeping judge" photos of Justice ---COMMENTARY FOLLOWS


It is way past time that we use the "L" word to describe liars. No more Mr. Nice Guy! Let's get this out wherever we can. Put it on your Facebook page or any other venue you have.

God bless the good guys and Bob Young is one of the best!

Commentary for this week:

I feel no need to go into detail about any of the following subjects or issues. Suffice to say that nothing has changed, at least not for the better, with any problems we have been agonizing over the last 21-22 months. Let's take a walk down memory land.

Remember Cash for Clunkers? And you older folks can hark back to Nixon's wage and price freeze. What was the net result? It delayed the actual problem which we were trying to avoid. Exactly the same thing is happening with the FORECLOSURE issue. By putting a moratorium on them, it will just be delaying the inevitable and if the Democrats are still in control, they will try another band aid approach and there will be no improvement in the economy or jobs market and all housing values will be down whether you have been in arrears or not.

Schauer is still lying, now even the strongest of supporting unions are asking for waivers from the health care bill, unemployment is stagnant at over 9% unless you live in one of the states such as Michigan where it is still above the average.

The Dems are still using Social Security as a wedge issue when in fact they are holding secret meetings with secret plans to increase the retirement age just wondering if it will be a Lame Duck issue. Of course Schauer still says it is perfectly healthy and nothing needs to be done.

Obama is still campaigning, guess I should say he has ratcheted up his campaigning, and is singling out Karl Rove and others as targets. Strange, isn't it? First he took on the entire state of Arizona and now he sits idly by while foreign countries do his dirty work for him. How proud he must be. So his anti America, anti business and apology tours continue unchecked while he blames the American public for their own unemployment saying we aren't smart enough to retrain for some types of jobs.

I'm going to say it out loud. I've whispered it to a few friends, but in my opinion I doubt that he has ever taken an economics course. Either he had a live stand in or a cardboard cutout going in his place. He just doesn't get it. He wouldn't know a Laffer curve from an S curve let alone a graph showing diminishing returns.

I heard a Democrat pundit opine that there should be at least one thing both parties should be able to agree on. Well, I have the answer: No More Earmarks! Now who do you think is the Party of No?

Today's beauty was a gift from God, hope you enjoyed it.
God bless......

Obama's Attempts at Mind Control or Control of Belief Systems--

A friend sent me a piece from the "New York Times" of September 28 which was a hodge podge of topics from the Supreme Court (both historically and current,) Justices, segueing to definitions of law and Obama's accidental but actually planned, since remarks had been published previously, which in some religious circumstances would be called sins of omission.

In particular we were given sufficient evidence to realize that he was intentionally omitting the Creator in the familiar "we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness." One of the incidents happened during in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on September 15.

We will probably never know what he is really up to, or maybe we will, it doesn't matter. There are as many opinions and theories as there are pundits plus a goodly number of ordinary but curious citizens as well. What was of more than passing interest, however, especially coming from the NY Times, was the following paragraph concerning George W:

After pointing out that Obama had omitted reference to the Creator it went on to say "George W. Bush, not usually credited by the media with high powers of mind, gave a truer version of the Founding principle when he famously observed that "we" did not give these rights to each other. If we gave these rights to each other--if we ourselves were the source of those rights or the authority that conferred--we could not as readily withdraw them. But those rights were thought to bring them from the very nature of human beings that no man was by nature the ruler of other men in the way that God was by nature the ruler of men, and then were by nature the rulers of horses and cows. These rights were taught them to spring from the 'laws of nature and of Nature's God.'"

Is he trying to confuse everyone? Or is he just trying to change the subject? Does it not seem that he is just trying to change the subject so folks forget about his religion and the accompanying theories on his birth. If he's a Muslim, why doesn't he just say so? I truly doubt that it would upset many people. The American citizen just doesn't like to be lied to. And look around--we're really pretty darn tolerant and forgiving.

But I do love the fact that even the NYT has eaten a little crow and admits that good old "W" is a pretty good thinker. Sure wish there were a few good men and women with some common sense in the White House and the rest of those buildings in D.C.

Caught Off the Record Friday evening and Breslin and Lyons acquitted themselves nicely, but the Democrat woman (think she's a McNamara) came off as a throwback to the good old tax and spend Democrat. Didn't catch the name of the Democrat fellow, but he was difficult to read. It seems he is digging as deeply as he can to find issues that may or may not be relevant, but he thinks it makes him look as though he knows all the intricacies of MSU. Don't forget to vote the entire ballot where the judges and education contests are.

Have a good week-
God bless.......
