A London Times Obituary

th

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

  •  Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
  •  Why the early bird gets the worm;
  •  Life isn’t always fair;
  • And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place:

Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death,
    *by his parents, Truth and Trust,
     *by his wife, Discretion,
     *by his daughter, Responsibility,
     *and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 wicked stepbrothers;
*I Know My Rights
    *I Want It Now
    *Someone Else Is To Blame
    *I’m A Victim
    *Pay me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and those who do nothing.

Conference Most High – Words to Ponder

blackray_0

And the day came to pass that representatives of all peoples of the world united in a global convention, to discuss the future of man. In the advanced society of the year 3,000, a specific forum was enlisted to minimize the use of valuable time. After much deliberation, consideration, and delegation, issues of great importance were reached in every arena of discussion, but one – The topic of God.

As the various religious denominations and sects sat perplexed as to how even to begin, for each believed its own beginnings was fashioned originally, solely, and like no others. The great elders and priests now sat speechless and quiet, obviously closed to any other possibility.

The agnostic sector came to the podium and offered the suggestion to at least agree on the existence of a supreme being, but before they were through the atheists and polytheists began a heated discussion on how many, if any, Gods to agree upon.

To solve the erupted dispute, the Native Americans offered their shamanism or spirituality as the prime choice for the whole of humanity, but before their medicine men could finish their reasons of logic, the Rabbis from Israel stood up and began fervently arguing that the God of Abraham could only be chosen, for Abraham’s God was the only true God.

As the Jews debated their truth with vigor, the Christian denominations became enraged that Jesus somehow was not automatically selected as the only true and dominant religion’s focus. As the Buddhists began to disagree with the Jehovah Witnesses, the Hare Chrishnas became uncommunicative when the Muslims and Mormons began to offer their views. Within a matter of minutes each and every organization from atheists to Zionists were in an out-of-control altercation. Then the room was silenced, as all eyes looked up to find rays of light penetrating the alabaster and marbled ceilings.

As the Muslims dropped to their knees to bow in the Holy presence, the Rabbis could be heard agreeing it was truly the God of Israel, Adonai. The thunderous voice replied, “Yes, I am the God, Adonai”. In horror, all of the Christian denominations joined in the building of mass confusion, and in a panic demanded to know where their savior was. The heavenly voice reassuringly declared Himself also the Holy Trinity. As the Buddhists meekly ask about their beloved Buddha, the unearthly presence acknowledged Himself as their Buddha. Each religious group in turn ask the Holy presence its identity, and each in turn learned His presence to be their own beloved Deity.

The agnostics conceded that though they did not comprehend the presence they were witnessing, it was real and both “supreme” and “the answer”, but for what they didn’t know. Brooding, the atheists sat silent, quite irritated by the whole unexplained display. When ask why, they answered curtly that nothing had changed, they still refuted any beliefs in a supreme Deity, Creator of anything, and that destiny was man’s illusion for self comfort. The all knowing voice agreed that His place was void of that responsibility since the atheist didn’t seek comfort, intervention or even a hint of connection.

As dialogue continued, each denomination grew more unsettled, frustration mounted causing bursts of anger and negativity between those in attendance. Among the raised voices, a quiet yet peaceful voice rang out creating a hush that enshrouded the room. The Hindu woman’s voice, young and timid, and in simple terms asked, “Who was the God to first?”

Without hesitation, the miraculous voice filled with kindness and understanding replied, “I have always been Father to all my children, from the first moment of life and throughout the years they enlisted my aid, to the last moment of life, and beyond. I show no partiality. I have no divine plan for one and not the others. I am everything to each one of you.”

As the Grand Counsel of men and women sat basking in the unseen smile of a being with no form other than total presence, one question remained. An old frail bodied Taoist man, with eye’s lowered, quietly spoke and politely asked, “If this is all true then why have so many lives been lost through persecution and in wars fought in your name?”

The voice simply replied, “I myself cannot tell you this, for man, not God, is responsible for his own actions. So let me ask you, my son, why?”

Before a word could be uttered, the ray was gone and with it the tremendous presence of Holiness. The priests, rabbis, ministers, polytheists, as well as monotheists, atheists and agnostics all sat with heads bent, thinking both of the answers and question left to man’s accountability to man. Each beginning to absorb the words of wisdom just spoken for all to hear.

It’s up to the US people to protect the food supply.  Don’t allow the government and large corporations continue to put poison in our foods – you can do that by getting the word out and hitting them in the pocket – the only thing they seem to understand.  Because of the wise choices of everyday people, large greedy corporations are already starting to see their profits drop and more and more stores are stocking their shelves with non GMO and organic and gluten free food.

Read more about who has to say what about labeling and e-mail friends, tweet, blog, use Facebook and make your voice heard.

National Relief Charities (NRC) – helping Native American people improve the quality of life.

In Honor of the 32nd Annual Gathering of Nations, (April 25 – 27) I’d be amiss if I didn’t include something about the various Native American nations that started a way of life for me in fighting for indigenous people, not just here in the United States, but around the world.

Over 500 treaties were made with the various Native American nations, and the federal government has broken them all, denying the the resources and land that was taken away from them and forcing them to live on reservations, being abused, and murdered.  The government can (and has) taken away everything they can, but they will never break the spirit of these beautiful people.

Will you join me in working together to improve their quality of life?  Please take the time to read the link below:

How High Schools Discriminate Against Students for Life Clubs

Isabell-Akers-e1429204613128-225x300

Whenever I think of young people speaking up for what they believe, it is a real inspiration and their voices need to be heard.  From high schools to college campuses, there is a fight going on, and these young people are growing in numbers and spreading their message across the country – we need to support them if not by donations (which is always good), but at least by a quick tweet or a reply on their blog to let them know we are championing their “cause”.

Principal Steve Madson of Hampton-Dumont High School received a demand letter from the law firm for Students for Life of America, charging that the Principal  has unconstitutionally discriminated against Isabell Akers by denying her the right to form a Students for Life club at the school.  After a long battle the Principal claimed that the Students for Life club is too “controversial”, forbidding the students from putting up posters or being included in the yearbook with other clubs by using the justification that the club doesn’t tie in with the school’s curriculum, but neither do most of the school’s other clubs at the school.  This denial by the administrators constitutes a violation of the students’ rights under both the Federal Equal Access Act and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Isabell stated “I wanted to spend my high school career educating my fellow students on the beauty of human life and providing resources to girls at my school, but instead I have been fighting for my First Amendment rights”.

Another voice to be reckoned with is Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.  “On the contrary, high school students have the right to form Students for Life clubs to educate and inform their peers on the tragedy of abortion and to help those facing unplanned, crisis pregnancies….”

Hampton-Dumont High School is not the only school that is discriminating against the freedom of our young people.  Fargo North High School is another one.  To read the complete story about both high schools, please click on:

If you know of a high school or college that wants to initiate a Students for Life Club, the link above will make it possible to have these students help in anyway they can by providing guidance and the necessary tools to start a local club for you.

The Upper Downriver Right to Life Group supports the Students for Life – will you?

My first and last word on politics!

I am only going to make one comment when it comes to politics and then drop the subject because I do not want this blog to become some political forum. Ladies, I am talking directly to you. We are almost 18 months away from our next election and I’m already sick of hearing about it every day on the news, but what makes me even sicker is when women encourage us and want us to vote for a female just because they are a female. Whatever happened to judging a person by the content of their character, and that has nothing to do with what sex you are?

It is a sad commentary that I feel it necessary to state that despite the words politicians and candidates say (forget the words and hugging of babies or “catchy” phrases) – look at their record BEFORE they decided to run for office or WHILE they were in an office of a different level. Are the words in line with their prior actions or are they all new words (a new position) because they want to win more votes? They seem to like to say when they flip/flop they have “evolved” – really? How convenient! Does the content of their character show that they are a person who not only will “talk the talk, but walk the walk”? Perhaps I should not have said the previous comment because honesty can live up to those words – but so can dishonesty if it is guided by a particular agenda!

The great Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Doesn’t it go without saying that this same way of thinking should continue on without personal biases, like judging a person because they are female vs. male, young vs. old, belong to one political party vs. the other (the difference here is if you believe in the agenda itself, that is different than just voting because it is a specific party).

If you are going to go to the poles to vote then you have a responsibility to do your homework and to know who you are voting for, what they stand for based upon their prior experience and record, and anything less is an insult to every other American who wants the smartest, most ethical, honest, talented candidate that stands for all Americans, not just a particular group of Americans, and who is loyal and dedicated to this country that we call HOME. We want a Commander-in-Chief who puts this country, its people, best interest, and its security first and will turn their back on those who prefer their greed for money and power over the people, and will not be bought off by large corporations, favors, and lobbyists. A person who will work within the confines and protect the Constitution of the United States.

If after doing your homework, you still cry out for a woman because she is, in your opinion, the best candidate, then I say “go for it”, but do it because of the content of her character, not because she happened to be born female.

As a female, I am insulted by the  women who obviously consider me, and other independent thinkers, so shallow and narrow minded that we can be led by such rhetoric that it is “time for a woman President”. NO, it is time for a President of any sex that will do the work they are meant to do and will start by getting rid of the pork, all the fraud and abuse, and be responsible enough to protect our borders, our security, and our freedoms.
