"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Last Thoughts

Time to reflect upon 2009 and look to 2010

  1. We never totally appreciate everything that we have.
  2. Debate used to be something that we engaged in to permit all voices to be heard. Now debate cannot exist.
  3. Hollywood can show all kinds of vile behavior and we will pay for a ticket and then later buy the DVD.
  4. Sex has taken over our public schools(and not by the teens anymore) we have an incredibly movement that is pushing an agenda to our youngest...and we sit back afraid to be called a homophobe. This one always shocks me the most, because if this campaign of heterosexual awareness was pushed in the public setting and to our children all the way down to kindergartners, there would be an outcry like no other. Yet the word fisting, which I will not explain here, has been part of what is taught to children in public schools-Standing for age appropriate behavior means nothing anymore-else one may be thought to be a hate criminal. Oh and for the record we do not have a campaign about bestiality- should we? I mean there are most certainly children out there that are attracted to their pets. Perhaps we could promote literature and curricula that graphically explains just how things work for this to work. You know what else? Some people are sexually attracted to dead people- why are we not teaching the youngsters this either?Why can't we teach the children how to wife swap, gang rape, or understand that in prison sex with someone of the same sex does not make you gay. You know why? Because these are still(ever so slightly) considered abhorrent behaviors, so we mustn't share them with the wee ones.
  5. We needed to have a beer summit at the White House because a police officer had to deal with a belligerent old man(who happened to be black) and the President(who desires we never jump to conclusions) immediately cried race?
  6. When will Fort Hood be given a beer summit?
  7. When will the folks who were on the Christmas day flight be given a beer summit?
  8. The answers to 6 and 7 will never be given and I will be treated like a moron, because can't you see that the President is black? Oops I am now a racist. Sorry Americans- I saw a man who boldly held his hands down every time the national anthem was played. I saw and heard a husband and wife speak ill of a country that gave them elite educations, high paying jobs, and the freedom that allowed them to campaign for the position of president of the United States. Yes, I saw a fairly good looking man that was black, first, but that did not influence my attitude for his beliefs. He told us all along the trail that the America that millions risk all to move to, is not really a great place. He told us that he would fundamentally change the United States. That is who I saw and I was troubled.
  9. Helping the banks did not help us, as they took the money and then increased all of our rates...
  10. Helping the housing crisis also did not work. This next quarter is going to be pretty darn bad ...
  11. Bailing out those TOO BIG to fail only means when these too big to fail businesses really collapse- we will be underneath them...can you say OUCH?
  12. War on Terror does not exist anymore, and to prove this, the panty bomber- has been mirandized and will be afforded the very same rights as any American. Come on...this war thing is so hostile...especially when our genius government officials have discovered the truth- The REAL THREAT TO AMERICA simple, God fearing folks, who have worn the uniform, own weapons, and salute the American flag(hint- that is you and me).
  13. When we failed to drill in ANWR we placed the final nail in the coffin of inexpensive fuel. Remember $4 and $5 gas? It never came back down to the before prices and guess what? We took it---therefore OPEC needn't ever lower the price again. They own us, because we will not use what we have.
  14. Oh and for all you earth friendly climate what nots- this will be very blunt: I appreciate that you have a great urgency to be proactive in a cause...but you focus was flawed. Your wallet wasn't and boy the Al Gore's of the world appreciate your riding a bicycle everywhere while they own private jets- and enjoy the tofu(Al still can't seem to give up meat) but your cause is noble, oops I meant for the new nobility, as you and your cause have created a billion dollar boom for them. Would you like to hear about a real cause that would save so much more? How about saving your marriage- devote as much time to your marriage as you have been devoting to sorting your trash, locating organic materials etc. I bet that you would be amazed at the relationship you could really have. Or focus on your children(or parents). I bet raising them instead of placing them on a pedestal would drastically change much of our problems with the youth and their complete narcissistic attitudes that they have.---By the way it was NOT the leaked emails that left me with this opinion. Let's focus on something plain and simple. How old has science said the earth is? 4 something billion years old- yet man in one century(mostly on one continent-America) is destroying the planet? Here is a novel idea- research how much data one needs to compile a cycle. Then imagine a teeeeeeeny tiny blip, as that is what the past 6000 years are on the scientific age of the earth. This cannot be science based on what they have determined the science to be.
  15. 2010 should be a powerful year for Americans. We should begin something that would cause fear in the political class. We should- no matter what- vote out every member of Congress. They are not doing what the people wish and haven't for many, many years. So let's make the term they are in now the last term. Then push for an overhaul such as we have now with the term limits of the president. But Senators have six years...ONE TERM. Representatives can have two terms...NO MORE. You see then the lobby whores would not have the same ability as they have now to sway votes and trillions of dollars. Enough is enough.
  16. 2010 should be a powerful year for you. It is the time to stop the mollycoddling. It is time to stop the whining and instead step up and be part of the solution. If we don't like what is going on in government fix it.
  17. 2010 should be the year that we stop spending money we don't have. If we can't pay our debt, we should eliminate our toys until we can pay our debt. This should be the year of rice and beans. Until we are debt free if we just reduced our food expenses to the most basic we would see a change in our body and in our debt. Approximately 40% of all the food you have in your fridge will go in the garbage...so cut this waste out now.
  18. 2010 should be the year we stop making Hollywood wealthy. I say turn in the cable boxes or satellite dishes and pick up a book- I say start with two books- the Bible and the Constitution. Both are incredible reads. Both offer freedom: one from hell, and the other because here on earth because of what is outlined in the Constitution. Both offer hope- but neither have been read in so long that here today in conversation many would not be able to join.
  19. 2010 should be the year we begin to take responsibility once again.
  20. 2010 should be the year that we say NO MORE.
