In God We Still Trust

I guess this can not be played on most radio stations and The president calls it unsuitable and that it offends people. What do you think??

We Hold These Truths To Be Self Evident

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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Fifty-six great men gathered together and stood up for the citizenry. Each one knew full well he was about to lose everything he had worked for all of his life. Or, he was about to lay the foundation on which the greatest nation in the world would be built. Oh how I envy those brave souls. Yes they all gambled their fortunes and most either lost their sons or in fact themselves died to give to give us the right to freedom. But they stood up and they were not alone.

I have read the preamble to the Declaration of Independence many times in the past. In school we were supposed to be able to recite it. I would lay odds that today’s schools do not spend very much time learning the words, let alone the meaning of the text.

You may notice I underlined some of the words in the above text. To me these words meant a lot. You may want to underline a few more or maybe a few less.

These men were treasonous, they were breaking the law of the land, and they would all be punished to the maximum. They all signed and witnessed the most important piece of paper in our history as a nation, unafraid. John Hancock, not to be outdone or overlooked signed his name five and a half inches long across the page. Where will we sign when the time comes, who will be the re-founders, what will be our motivation and our goal.

We have a battle in front of us and it begins in the polls. Starting at the local level and reaching all the way to our nations Capitol. Before we lose our rights completely, to assemble and be heard, start speaking out; ask the hard questions of our representatives and DEMAND answers.

Frustrated??

COG
“Community Organizing Group” For conservative thinkers.

As I sit here in front of my computer trying to somehow piece together all of the news of the day, all the things I want to say sound so “Ho Hum”. For the last week I have written so many things that seemed very important at the time and then read and re-read and then hit the Delete button and poof cleared my screen. Each time I would write something down it sounded too radical, verging on extreme.

What is going on in our nations capitol is a crime and the same people that were elected to uphold and protect our interests are the ones doing the damage. Our California governor has signed into law ammunition restrictions that will all but stomp on our second amendment rights. We have our children enduring two war campaigns in the Middle East with no sense of urgency shown by the President of the United States.

We somehow need to instill that sense of urgency into ALL of our politicians. How??

Tonight I was watching my recorded session of Glen Beck and realized that we need to do more than we are doing now. Some of the things Glen says may seem off the wall, but by speaking boldly and demanding to be heard we may be able to save our rights as citizens.

The country is at a major fork in the road. We can either turn up hill or downhill. The downhill road is easy as we can coast and save fuel the road doesn’t have any turns and it looks like an easy way. Do we have enough brakes left to stop us before we hit the bottom of the hill or run off the road? The uphill road is very steep and curvy it has potholes. I hear that up on top of the hill we would be climbing is a really nice view of the whole world. I want my children and grandchildren to see the world like I have seen it in the past.

We need to gather up our ideas and our courage and organize. It is very easy to sit back and forward e-mails and hope someone picks up the fight so we don’t have to. I receive at least fifteen chain letters a week guaranteeing me good luck or wealth or a million leprechauns at my door if I just forward it to twenty of my friends. I’m sorry if I am a little dubious of that type of good fortune. I am more relieved to find five or ten people that would be there when or if the going gets rough.

I don’t know a lot about organizing people into a single voice that can be heard in Washington DC but I am willing, with your help, to find a way to do it.

The Jar of Rocks

This was sent to me and it fits with life fairly well.

A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff."
"If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal."
"Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."
But then... an engineering student then took the jar which the other students and the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer. Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the jar truly full.
The moral of this tale is: no matter how full your life is, there is always room for BEER.

Water Water

Did you see Glen Beck Wednesday and Thursday?? Hmmm wonder where the “Boiling Frog” came from. I guess great minds think alike.

There are so many juicy stories in the news lately I find it hard to absorb them all. Between ACORN, the UN, NEA, Obamacare and all the Czars I think we ought to throw them all into a pot and boil them all.

What I want to talk about today is more of a local California issue that impacts the whole country if not the world. I listened to a local radio station last night and then re-listened tonight, to the pod cast of the Alan Autry show. http://www.1300kyno.com/kynomedia/AlanAutry-9242009.html. Alan, you might remember him as Buba, has threatened to jump the fence at the pumping station that sends water to the farmers on the west side of Fresno county. Right now I understand that the pumps are on but come January they go off again. Senator Jim Demint from South Carolina introduced a bill to the Senate and Dianne Feinstien nixed it before it had a chance to be voted on. An environmental law protecting the Delta Smelt is the problem. I love to fish almost as much as anyone. Hey fish are important. BUT… The Striped Bass that live in the canals and sloughs on the west side are in danger of dying too if they run out of water that is being fed south out of the delta. The water that hasn’t dried up yet is turning brackish and soon all you will be able to catch out there on the west side will be Carp, Craw fish and frogs.

As of last week the unemployment rate for Mendota California was 36%. The rate was higher but some of the people have moved out to find employment in other cities.

George Radonovich was on the radio show with Damint and Autry and has said he would jump the fence with Autry, or did he say he would be there when Autry jumped the fence; Hmmm. Alan Autry did call this a “grass roots rebellion”.
