About Sharp Right Turn

Welcome to Sharp Right Turn.  I started this blog basically to chronicle my views and thoughts about current politics and news.  I figure this might be a better way to vent my ideas, views and irritations since my husband usually bears the burden of my endless speeches on liberalism, socialism, and equally bad “-isms”.  I plan to learn the art of political/current events blogging as I go….so…hang on for the ride…..and be sure you don’t miss that Sharp Right Turn!

UPDATE June, 2008:  I have made an observation….I have lots of great folks who have commented on this blog.  (thanks, by the way)…Occasionally, I have been referred to as “dude”, “sir”, and other references to males…..Don’t get me wrong…it does not bother me in the least. 

My observation, however, is that I believe most people don’t automatically assume a woman writes this blog because the stereotypes we have been made to believe about women in this day and age is that they don’t like guns, they are pro-abortion, they are career-oriented SUPERMOMS or single-parent uneducated welfare moms, vote for Democrats, they all swoon over Obama….and the list goes on.

Well, I am a Midwestern born/Southern-bred female who:

  • believes in the Constitution and that it was not made to “live and breathe and change” with the whims of culture or European countries
  • is not “afraid” of guns and takes advantage of her 2nd Amendment rights
  • also takes advantage of her 1st Amendment rights….I say what I think (sometimes its a blessing, sometimes its a curse!)
  • believes that all human life is sacred–although, for some Democrats I might make an exception…just kidding :)
  • believes citizens of this country should speak English as a primary language – all other languages are for fun and extra credit.
  • believes parents should raise their children—not a village, not a school, not a government
  • is unabashedly patriotic (in the traditional sense) and gets a lump in her throat when hearing a good rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”
  • thinks that “burning flags”, hating your country, and flaunting your lack of a US flag lapel pin is NOT what patriotism is about.
  • has a Master’s Degree education (the college experience did not succeed in indoctrinating me to liberalism!)
  • thinks a secure border is crucial for maintaining our country and way of life….those here illegally should go back the way they came….on the next bus, 20-person-built-for-6 minivan, or take the underground tunnel out of here…period.
  • believes today’s Democrat leaders are mostly Socialists and Marxists by nature and in practice.
  • doesn’t want to be “SuperMOM” – When I had a career, I didn’t have children…while I have children, I don’t have an “outside of the home” career.  Simple as that. 
  • thinks a strong defense and all-out support of our military is the key to our country’s survival in the long run…and the thing that will drive liberal, anti-war, hippie-reject nuts crazy for years.
  • does not believe in same-sex “marriage” and that homosexuality is against the laws of nature, but loves the person regardless (yes, I have had gay friends, employees, and acquaintances throughout life that I enjoyed being around)
  • does believe every individual should be hired based on merit, not “affirmative action”
  • loves to watch college football – I sit on the couch on Saturdays soaking in football while my husband cleans the house…then that picture simply reverses on Sundays during NFL football!
  • likes a good and civil debate, but must admit that arrogance, liberalism, and citizens blinded to the Democrat agenda are hard for me to deal with
  • believes Islam (in its present form) is a threat to our country, particularly when most “moderate” Muslims do not regularly and loudly condemn those labeled “radical”
  • believes there is one true God and that is the God of the Bible – none of this “we all pray to the same God” stuff for me…sorry

You get the idea….hope you still enjoy reading this proudly conservative female and her rantings!

  1. I love the picture on the top of the page :-) very cute.

  2. I think its sad that you chose to be so unchristian in your views, Jesus Loved everyone, and saidn ot to judge, however thats all you seem to do. Also you clain that Obama is lacking as a christian for his acceptence of homosexuality and abortion, what about the other things in the bible that even the most concervitive chritians ignore? how can you pick and choose which are vaild and which are simply outdated signs of the times? The sabath is on Saturday?…Please for your sake, the sake of those who read your site and for the sake of the one and tryue lord look into yourself and stop the hatred. Ask yourself “What would Jesus do” not what is accepted by the modern church.

  3. Just thought you should know that I posted an excerpt from your nutty defense of hate speech on Dailykos at http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/3/9/233951/1317/623/473317

    Also here’s my thoughts on Sally Kern…

    Gee thanks for all of the traffic….I appreciate you boosting my readership ….. albeit many of them were cussin’ mad liberals from the oh so “tolerant” DailyKos.

    I guess hate speech is a one way street, though…..since you are an active contributor to the DailyKos, you obviously must condone the nasty comments that overrun that blog…..

    You see, I am just starting to understand from “enlightened” folks like yourself that the type of speech on the DailyKos is not “hate speech” because it is largely directed at those who don’t tow the Gay Agenda, BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome), Anti-Christian, Conservatives-are-bigots party line.
    “Hate Speech” is only classified as such if you disagree with the ideals of the Left Wing Liberals.

    **************
    DailyKos/Left Wing Motto:
    – Hate Speech OK for Me, But not for Thee—

  5. Brady–
    you said: “how can you pick and choose which are vaild and which are simply outdated signs of the times?” and “Please for your sake, the sake of those who read your site and for the sake of the one and tryue lord look into yourself and stop the hatred.”
    Read what you said and take a good long look in the mirror, Brady….

  6. i think you are a male. can’t we all just get along?

  8. eric,
    iThanks for the update. I made the change to your URL link.

    Best wishes.

  9. I am very glad I have found your blog. Keep raising your voice, SRT and keep up the good work.

  10. hey, great blog. I’m a liberal and I obviously have some different thoughts than you, but its not really about that — the writing is very good, you have a strong voice, and whatever you write I may disagree with it but I’ll read it.

  11. Dear Ms Sharp Right Turn,

    I enjoy your blog over the water, and have linked to it in a post; I don’t believe generally in getting involved in other folks’ elections, but I think the US election, this one in particular, is going to be the most important one in the world. Anyway, I’ve linked to your blog, with the Obama Youtube about children etc as “punishments”; it’s a long old thing, the link’s in the third para. from the bottom. Hope this is ok, please tell me if it’s not.

    http://draughtyoldfentales.blogspot.com/2008/09/what-price-next-generation.html

    All the best

  12. Frugal,
    Well said on your blog post!….thanks for linking.

  13. I believe point for point as you do except I’d concede for clarity that the framers did design a constitution that could live and breath with the times (but only through the legislative branch of elected representatives and after approval from the executive branch). I’m certain the framers didn’t expect it to be changed as it has been and especially to copy anything of European influence (one of the things they clearly wanted to escape even then). They also didn’t expect it to be changed by anything of a judicial source or nature. The states were to have the power and obligation to govern except for the common defense which was the primary Federal excuse for being. Lastly, once and for all (I’ll take the liberty to say it for both of us) the term, or the commonly used definition for “Separation of church and state” does NOT appear in the constitution, its amendments, or in the Bill Of Rights anywhere and neither does “the right to happiness,” only its pursuit is mentioned. Thank you for your blog and the efforts at putting and keeping it out there. Dean

  14. I’d like to respond to Brady Arrington and others that hold his view. First, a correction, we’re not to attempt to judge as God will judge, but we are definitely called upon by the Bible to judge good from bad, most often it’s to be based on their deeds but it can be about what they say. It might be better to think of that judgment as “discernment” using the modern English vernacular. Anyway the Bible does call us to righteously judge some people and their behaviors; how we decide this next election should be using such judgment. While we are called to judge it’s not about their fate, it’s about how we should respond to them (preserving our faith and fate). Second, regarding change. I’d hate the be the subject of a God creator who is constantly refining or revising themselves, especially to keep up with man’s social mores. To hold such a belief is to believe God is, in some extent, imperfect, unholy, and incapable of having His best foot forward in the beginning, down through the ages, and now. Said another way, God (thankfully for us) is changeless, and what He didn’t like in the beginning he still doesn’t like. I’d also say it’s not just about Obama or this election in my view. Any candidate representing the Democratic Party (unless he or she declares otherwise) is supporting a political party with too many “official planks” in clear defiance of God. Failure to protect the unborn and the weak is one of those. Failing to uphold the one-man, one woman sanctity of God’s institution marriage is another. Failing to support the traditional family is another. There are many Democratic beliefs that just aren’t Godly in intent or outcome. I’m not saying you have to be a Republican to be saved, we all know that’s not true, but supporting a party running “officially opposed to God” (by deed) should be cause enough to rethink any political party or their candidates. If you are a baptized believer of the God of the Bible, then you know we have to elect better representation, and certainly it can be said the official platform of the Democratic Party needs to be rewritten for that party’s beliefs to be acceptable to a Christian. Similarly any Republican or Libertarian planks that are also ungodly or contrary to Christianity.

  15. This is another conservative woman that agrees with each and every point that you have so stated.

    Love your blog..Keep up the fight!

  16. Dude – ;)

    You are a breath of fresh air! Keep posting the Truth (with a capital T).

    Blessings sister!

  17. Okay, yay you are awesome. I, too,share you viewpoints on these very important and crucial issues. I am sick of the whiners, the big-mouthed liberal celebrities and the twisted, slanted media coaxing views of those who really don’t understand the issues. It’s scary and it’s about time people step-up and take back our freedoms.

  18. Great blog and great thoughts. I am going to put a link on mine to yours also if you don’t mind. Mine is http://www.imataxpayertoo.wordpress.com
    But I have a warning on my page…anyone who uses profanity will have their comments wiped out! My friends and family don’t need to read dirty words. Civility is called for.

  19. Kathy,
    Thanks for reading and thanks for the link!

  20. Great blog! I just discovered it this morning, and have enjoyed the reading here I’ve done. I’ll be back, and will add you to my blogroll. My own blog is very new, but also came out of a need and desire to express my love for this country, the Constitution, our God-given rights, the limitless opportunities we have in this country, and my duty to do what little I can to protect and preserve our liberty through words.

    Thanks for helping the spread the truth.

  21. Sharp right turn — is my hope precisely! I have had it with liberal/moderate Republicans like McCain. I think we lost this election in large part because of Republicans acting like Democrats.

    You may be interested in a petition I’ve entitled: We Demand True Conservative Leadership.

    http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/we-demand-true-conservative-leadership.html

    If you agree, sign it and pass it on! We Conservatives can make a difference. At least we have to try.

    Thanks!

  22. SRT,
    Can you please change the link to my blog in your blog roll? I have moved My Take to a self hosted blog. The new address is below.

    http://www.ldjackson.net

  23. SRT:
    You wrote: “does not believe in same-sex ‘marriage’ and that homosexuality is against the laws of nature, but loves the person regardless.”
    Do you or do you not believe that homosexuality is against the laws of nature?
    I’m not asking you to pass a litmus test, just a clarification.
    The “but loves…” indicates that you do believe that it’s against the laws of nature but the sentence structure seems to point to the fact you do not believe that it’s against the laws of nature.
    It’s Saturday, there is not college football, so what are you doing? Helping hubby clean or watching him clean?
    Cheers

  24. Boria,
    What!??!

  25. Sharprightturn:
    Just read your own statement of June 2008 in your own “About Sharp Right Turn” and you might be able to answer the humble questions I posed.
    I quote you below:
    ” * does not believe in same-sex “marriage” and that homosexuality is against the laws of nature, but loves the person regardless (yes, I have had gay friends, employees, and acquaintances throughout life that I enjoyed being around)
    * does believe every individual should be hired based on merit, not “affirmative action”
    * loves to watch college football – I sit on the couch on Saturdays soaking in football while my husband cleans the house…then that picture simply reverses on Sundays during NFL football!
    Cheers!

  26. Boria,
    Perhaps you are a bored English major looking for something to do….so I’ll humor you.

    First question – I suppose you could critique the sentence structure and conclude that I meant homosexuality is not against the laws of nature….however, I believe it is clear what I mean.
    Second question – It is fairly clear that I am referring to my Saturdays and Sundays during football season…otherwise its none of your business what I’m doing.

  27. I added your site to my blogroll. My blog is at http://www.americandictatorobama.com. Keep up the good work!

  28. SRT,
    just found your website/blog; reading about you I thought was all about me (except I am California born and raised, now in Texas) and my husband cannot clean (darn!). Congrats on your website/blog (and on your choice of hubby!) and keep up the good work!

  29. Kathryn,
    Thanks…glad you found the blog and hope you will offer your insight in the comments frequently….you know, great minds think alike! :)

    Best wishes.

  30. Yep, she’s a “real christian” alright. Not!

    I am a Southern born, Tree Hugging Conservative Republican, and I fully support the living, breathing Constitution of the United States of America. I am a Republican for Obama! I’m a conservative=CONSERVE, not shoot first and ask questions later. I’m also a Native American and I wish you all would speak the language here, or GO HOME. See, there are many ways for us “conservatives” to look at the world.

    At this point the American People agreed, the faux-conservative NEOCONS are really, really BAD for the economy, the health care system, the educational system, and the world. NeoCon=Bush Doctrine.

    Far be it for any faux Christian to support their President Obama in cleaning up the hot mess left behind eight years of pretend conservatism as was dished out by Bush, Cheney, Limbo, McPalin, Rumsfeld, and all the other trash left in the Republican party. It kind of makes this Republican want to be a Democrat. Instead, we’ll continue to clean house. I want my real Republican party back, now!

  31. Cherryl,
    Go blow your ignorant smoke somewhere else….MoveOn and the Obama “eternal campaign” sure have reached a low point with the talking points they are giving you trolls these days.

    Oh, and I hope Obama fails…..now go get your medicine.

  32. Cherryl:
    A tree hugger who supports govt health care, a govt run economy, a govt run indoctrination through education, and who believes American foreign policy is bad for the World is not a Conservative but a Green Socialist and will end up with no education, no health care, no freedom; and a ruined economy.
    Capitalism has (1) done more for the environment than any other system in the history of the World; (2) provided greater health care for more people; (3) produced more discoveries and inventions; (4) a better educational system especially at the College level (See 3 for that); (5) enabled more freedom for more people.
    More Capitalism will do more for more people than it has. As Barry Goldwater said: “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Replace the words freedom and justice with capitalism and the same applies…
    On the NeoCons (the word often used by Antisemites to mask their Antisemitism), their goal of ensuring American interests are the priority in our dealings with foreign nations who know their interests are their priority is not a vice but a virtue.
    George W., with all his flaws, got more countries to cooperate with the U.S. than any other President. Do you know that the foreign effort in WWII under the great foreign policy guru, Roosevelt, was a grand total of 10%. The U.S. shouldered the other 90%. That’s the approximate figure for Iraq for 5 of the last 7 years. We are doing even better than that in Afghanistan percentage-wise!
    Also, France is rejoining the military structure of NATO after a 43 year absence. That’s how bad W. was!
    We must not be liked but respected; I don’t see this with Obama your messiah: China; North Korea; Iran; Venezuela; etc…
    “I’ ll keep my money and my guns- you can keep the Change”
    Cheers!

  33. Just wanted to say “thank you” for sharing Mike Church’s video, “Mr. Jefferson,” with your readers. We want this thing to spread like wildfire, as the message is such an important one. The song itself can be downloaded at MikeChurch.com.

    If there’s anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Thanks!

  34. Cynthia,
    My pleasure…you are welcome.

  35. Just clarifying, You do not NOT think that wearing flag lapel pins is what patriotism is about? So, should we? Just kidding. I just like to point out typos. Very nice site.

  36. Mr. Lighter,
    I fixed it, I think…..thanks for the input!

  37. Well, wait. I know this has no real use, but I am a grammar nut. What you are saying is, that we should wear flag lapel pins. The part about how burning flags and hating America is not patriotic. But the flag lapel part, you say, “thinks that… NOT wearing flag lapel pins is NOT what patriotism is about.” I believe that is called a double negative. So either “I believe that patriotism is not about wearing flag lapel pins” or “Not wearing a flag lapel pin is unpatriotic” would be OK. I included both since I wasn’t 100% sure what you meant there.

  38. Mr. Lighter,
    My point was that I am FOR wearing flag lapel pins….I changed it again, but my husband is telling me it is still a double negative…..but I don’t care. :)

    Point is….thinking you are being patriotic by keeping a flag pin off of your lapel is misguided….
    I am FOR flag pins and think it is patriotic.

  39. Mr. Lighter,

    While the wording might be a bit awkward, the meaning is clear, and I think you agree with the intent. It’s great to be a “grammar nut”, as long as you maintain that focus on your own.

  40. Lighter:
    Correct SRT’s English at your own peril. If that’s the only thing wrong with the site, I can live with it. She is in good company with many other great Americans such as George H. W. and George W.
    Cheers!

  41. I just came across your page. It’s a cool thing: we both have the same layout and some of the same ideas. I am honored to meet another Conservative. I would like to add a link to your page on my blog if you’d do the same for me. Keep up the fight!

    God Bless America,

  42. SRT,
    Fantastic site, and thanks for the link to my Dayton Tea Party report. Looks like you good folks in Tulsa had a great time as well. I’ve done some looking around, and I like what I see here – you’ve got a strong writing style with views to back it up. I’d like to add your link to my blogroll if you’d do the same for my own humble site, Wellsy’s World, found at http://wellsy.wordpress.com. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to stopping by in the future. God Bless!

  43. Wellsy,
    Thanks for the great comments. I have added you to my blog roll….you have a great blog….glad I found it!

    Thanks for the link, too.

    Best wishes.

  44. I have absolutely no problem with the government keeping it’s nose out of religon. I just wish it would keep it’s big nose entirely out.

    Actually separation of church and state originated in the New Testament. “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesars and to God the things that are Gods”.

    Should it thus be stricken from our Bill of Rights because it violates itself?

  45. William M. Faulkner:
    There is nothing in the Bill of Rights or the Constitution about “separation of church and state.”
    This phrase was used by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802 and has been used by those who cannot stand the fact that this country was built on the notion that only a moral and religious people can make it work. See Adams’ quote all the way at the top of this page on the left…
    By the way, all our laws are based on a Judeo-Christian ethic, not a Moslem one, not an atheist one, not on a utilitarian one either… Only Christians found something wrong with slavery. The Ten Commandments are not found in Islam or any other pagan system.
    When a people loses its connection to God, it goes to hell in an hand basket… what emerges out of this chaos is a tyrannical ruler who falsely promises to bring back order as God had it and causes even more mayhem… Ceasar (or Obama) cannot compete with God.
    Cheers!

  46. Boria,
    I realize that the seperation of Church and state is a figment of the left’s imagination. I just wanted them to know where it came from, conceptually.
    Regards,

  47. Hello Friend,
    This is one of the finest, coolest, honest blogs I have come across in a long time! I hope to tell all my friends about it soon.
    I write a Christian based on-line Journal that also helps other disabled Veterans deal with the corrupt VA system. Seems like illegal aliens and welfare folks get their share of benefits long before Veterans get theirs– if any.
    Perhaps you will make sure I get your blog posts via my email, please.

    Cordially,

  48. I love your blog and your point of view. I have something I would like to ask you, but not on your blog. Can you email? Thank you.

  49. Awesome. Join the choir, and it’s getting really big! Will have an affect near time. 537 criminals need to do time! President Obama wants us to give him time, how about 25 to life.

    I have linked to this site from http://www.keepyourpowderdry.net.

  50. I share ALL of your same views, only you left out one bullet point in your introduction, and it should probably have been your first. Racist Bigot.

    Love it!

  51. Newatit:
    Accusing someone (SRT) of being a racist bigot (Is that redundant?) is a typical liberal tactic. It is a refuge of scoundrels and an ad hominem which has no place on a serious website.
    When a Black U.S. Attorney General refuses to prosecute Black Panthers for intimidating voters in Phily, is that racism or bigotry?
    When a Black Reverend calls New York Hymietown, is that racism or bigotry?
    When a Chicago Pastor blames Whites for all the evils in the World and preaches to the future president of the U.S. for 20 years (!!!), who is the Racist, who is the bigot, and who lacks good judgment?
    When a White cop is accused by the President (without all the facts) of “acting stupidly” when he attempts to identify a person breaking into a residence at night, who is the racist, who is the bigot?
    Last but not least: Can you give me one single instance of racial profiling which has withstood scrutiny after the misery peddlers (Jackson, Sharpton and cameras) go home?
    Cheers and Happy New Year!

  52. Thanks for the provocative dialogue.Keep it up.

    I’m a male Viet Nam Vet that supported GW, in spite of disagreeing with many of his policies. At least he was a President with “cajones,” who was not attempting to subvert our Constitution and form of Government. And he didn’t need three or four months to make a decision!

    Just stumbled onto your blog this evening, and see a lot of similarity in our beliefs…except the football.

    If we could get commercial-free hilights of great plays in a 15 minute show, I might join you in watching, however! The best deal of the New Year for us was Direct TV’s (no paid ad, just happiness revealed) recorder system, which we finally broke down and paid about $6 a month to use….now we can watch the Chargers for about an hour, rather than waste the other three hours of commercials, side shows, and other unwanted trivia. I can’t wait to record a 14 inning baseball game, and see the entire game in about 15 minutes of hilights!

    In spite of some negative “snipes” at your posts (by less than honest liberals, I presume), your comments reflect much of what the old fashioned “silent majority” believe: God, Country, Family, Responsibility, Awareness, Charity, etc.

    I certainly didn’t feel your comments were incendiary regarding same sex marriage…just YOUR honest belief (which you have the right to express). I might add…God created Adam and Eve, NOT Adam and Steve.

    I agree with Boria too…this “political correctness” crap (broader problems than racial bigotry however…it has infiltrated all aspects of our lives) has gotten way out of hand.

    School children are being brainwashed into believing PCness as a necessary way to live…as a means of preparing them for being a part of the new “Changed” America: slaves to the government.

    PCness has many afraid to say what’s really on their mind.

    Enough for a new guy!

    Thanks again for the blog, and keep up the new work.

  53. when i read this something bout you tone of voice seems arrogant, a bit ignorant and very judgmental.

  54. Lain: A bit Judgmental! You have got to be kidding. How about VERY judgmental. There is a right and wrong, an up and down, and a right and left! Moral relativism is a bankrupt philosophy.
    Cultures are not all equal. Political and economic systems are not all equal… A culture that stones women to death for committing adultery or beats women for being raped is not equal to one that provides shelter to them and jails the rapist. In CA, it brought the death penalty until the “enlightened” courts diminished the punishment.
    A culture that builds houses not to withstand earthquakes (China, Iran, Haiti) is not equal to one where 99+% of the people and buildings withstand them (Japan, U.S) or helps other countries recover…
    A culture that ensures freedom of religion is not equal to one that denies it to its people and calls for the death penalty it they become apostate from Islam…
    A culture that encourages people to prosper through the fruit of their labor (Capitalist economies) and exploit workers gladly is not equal to one that permits only those who bow to the ruler and who are connected to have a job (Corrupt dictatorships: Most Arab countries; most African countries).
    Econ systems that produce discoveries and inventions are not equal to ones that have not invented anything since the stone age or cannot even manufacture a toaster, never mind a watch!
    Political systems that hold free, fair, and flawed elections are not equal to political systems that don’t hold or hold sham elections…
    To use your word, it is the ignorant who does not know the difference… Ann Coulter said that if liberals listened to NPR (That’s National Public Radio) they’d become conservatives (because they would no longer be ignorant)…
    One year plus after the election of the anointed one, I’m still looking for a liberal who can tell me why he voted for him except for Hope (which has turned to Nope) and Change (which has turned to Chains…)
    Cheers!

  55. Lain,
    Thanks for your well-thought out, pithy, and intelligent comment. /s

    You forgot “sarcastic”.

  56. Ok, Boria…..nothing you said really talked about anything i was referring to so quit assuming you know what other people are thinking and that i’m a liberal. alrighty ^_^. And from the looks of all your comments your like a SRT flunky LOL start your own site if you feel so strongly.

    and SRT, because want to know the thought processes that lead me to my over simplified conclusion about you here it goes! YAY!

    These are based on the points about yourself

    - Constitution: If the constitution was not changed during its the times blacks would still be in slavery and women would still be oppressed and belittled. The constitution was made for white men who were pro-slavery, and did not believe in equality, and were quite sexist. And there is still need be even more change cause blacks and women are still severely discriminated against along with other races.

    - Guns: Just to say, GUNS ARE BAD! haha initially made to kill other human beings more effectively then anything anyway, scary stuff, gives me a really bad feeling, personally do not allow in my home, i’m more of a knife person. ^_~

    - Language: The country is a nation full of immigrants. It contains all cultures, backgrounds and LANGUAGES. Thats what makes this country so great. Other languages should not just be for fun. In fact it is because of this attitude Americas are so far behind. It’s like your saying “If people want to come here they have to just learn our language cause were the best country ever, we do not have to learn anyone else’s language. And you do not think thats ignorant and or arrogant?

    - Parenting: Parenting and education are totally different things. Some things parents are not qualified to teach their kids that will help raise them effectively. All the things that i lack and are ignorant in i want someone to help them become more well rounded and see things in a different light. Among many other things.

    - Degree: you can have all the knowledge in the world but obviously this failed to educate you in something concerning common sense and other aspects to culture…especially america….maybe your just really old and missed those classes.

    -Get Immigrants out: tried not to mention anything about you being racist but the underground railroad and packed van out? and protecting way of life? even without Mexicans and any other illegal immigrants it would be implausible to suppose such a thing, cause it can’t be implemented. they even literally tried to build a wall and that was a stupid idea and waste of money.

    - Democrats Marxist and Socialist? This is in itself factually incorrect. Marxist or communist is when the government has complete ownership of the economy and believes in no private ownership
    Socialist gov has a vast involvement in the finance sector. This government itself believes in public built roads and schools which the government pays for. And these are wealthy individuals themselves who own there own property and help out with all the extra blah blah. Even so Sweden resembles socialist gov but they are a democracy that helps to take care of their people. They have higher taxes but there education and there health care is all taken care of and they also have a higher level of happiness. What is the big deal?

    - Moms don’t work with kids?: Unfortunately some mothers can not afford that luxury and have to work to keep their kids clothed and fed.

    - All out support of military: and enormous amount of resources are used in nation conflict which had only lead to more National conflict. I feel we should focus that money on more important things. We already have bases on other people land.

    - Husband chores? If you believe in the Constitution as you support it your suppose to be the one doing the chores. Remember your a woman , know your place.

    - Muslims don;t condemn radicals: The Radicals are killing the moderate Muslims and a few Americans. So America goes over there and attacks and things become worse. When it comes to something like this people have to learn religious tolerance. Instead of promoting and trying to make people Christians when it comes to radicals you should promote them to become moderate Muslims. And its not that the moderates are not condemning the radicals they are living in fear and are being killed and kidnapped and hurt daily, even for just going to school or outside.

    And if you want to talk about how violent Muslims are Christians when it was just being developed was very violent. From the crusades to the many people slaughtered just because you do not believe the same thing. Thats what they Christians did to their own people and Christianity was used as a cover up for the genocide of the native american race.

    Christian? The God you supposedly believe in tells you to love above ANYTHING else because that is the thing that will conform hearts and bring people to him, you do not choose who you want to love. From the things you say you propagate hate and fear. What God do you serve?

    You have no right to judge anyone. Even the bible tells you that. You should probably learn to use it ok ^-^? Either that or you will just included in the mass of people who claim their Christians and do not do anything or pick and choose what they want to practice and believe in.

    Good luck with your walk of faith maybe you will learn to be less obsessive about this government and actually focus on your walk with him. He calls you to save that which is lost? Since you seem so passionate i hope you use it to steer people to be lovers of God and not Conservatives *shakes head* ^_~

  57. Lain,

    Most of this “About” page was written after many assumed a man wrote this blog. The basis of my bullet points was twofold: clarify that all women don’t fit the “NOW” or liberal definition of a woman and to clearly state some of my conservative views.

    You can disagree all day with the type of woman I am and even my views. But my views don’t make me a hater nor do they make me wrong. And you may believe wholeheartedly in what you wrote here, but that doesn’t make you right, nor your views superior, either.

    I think if you read my blog, much of what you wrote and my views on it are covered in this blog. As few other thoughts here:

    Constitution: The Constitution is a not a living/breathing document and can not be changed via fiat by a rogue elitist President and his liberal minions in Congress. Changes to our Constitution must be completed according to the rules set out by the Constitution. The whims of social liberals, corrupt lawmakers, and immoral minorities are not grounds for changing the structure, meaning, and intent of our Constitution. That is not to say that the Constitution can’t be changed (as it was for slavery, as an example) but that it is accomplished through the Constitution’s rules, not slipped through some legislation from Congress or an “executive order” from a radical President.

    Guns: You say guns are bad so my embrace of the right to bear arms makes me somehow arrogant? If you don’t want a gun, more power to you. But your view that “guns are bad” are no reason to condemn my, or anyone else’s, right to own a gun. I think a good reading of the Second Amendment to the Constitution is a great refresher course for those who don’t understand the importance of the citizenry and its right to bear arms.

    Language: I said English should be the primary language. Never did I say other languages are not important to learn nor that they can’t be practiced. But remember an important aspect of the American experiment has been assimliation of our immigrants. The success of our country is due in large part to the mindset of immigrants who wanted to seize the opportunities of this country and assimilate into the culture to help this country succeed. In recent history, immigrants, mostly illegals, come here to escape their countries, yet demand that we keep their cultures intact after they arrive. Assimilation is important for the future of America. Learning the English language is a key aspect of assimilation. That is not an arrogant view, but one that is key to the survival of our melting pot country.

    Parenting: Again, parents should raise their children and be sole authorities over their lives. My point is that the government, communities, “villages”, schools, and others can, indeed, healthily influence children, but the ultimate control is in the parent’s hands. I hope my children will learn much from many other people and in many different ways. But no one, but me and my husband, should have a say in what I want my kids to learn, where they go to school, and whether they can have an abortion — to cite a few examples. Liberals, and especially Barack Obama and Democratic leaders, believe they know best in areas of health, abortion, history, diet, schooling, etc. than parents do. This view of nanny-state government parental control is dangerous and anathema to freedom and liberty.

    Immigration: Those who break the law entering this country should be sent back where they came from. Those, like you, who say it can’t be done are either ignorant to the laws of our country, the repercussions of supporting a large illegal population, and/or are looking the other way. It is not racist to declare that immigrants from any country must enter this country legally. And there are many methods for beginning a process of thwarting the desire to come here illegally and for expelling those who are here today illegally. Examples: Employers must not be able to hire illegals or face stiff fines and penalties; Illegals that are discovered by law enforcement, employers, and citizens should be processed out of the country; Our border should be secure in such a manner those actually attempting vehicle or foot crossing are caught, or better yet, unmotivated to cross. If nothing else, our illegal immigration problem is a major national security issue and should be eliminated on those grounds.

    Motherhood: That statement was largely to clarify that I don’t fit the liberal sterotype of women. My comments on working/staying at home with kids was not meant to disparage those who must work at any time in their lives. I respect those who can balance kids and career…I just simply don’t think I could.

    I simply don’t have time to respond to each of your other points separately. But read my blog for clarifications and my understanding of the radical Islamic threat, our military, the Iraq War, etc.

  58. Dear Lain:
    I appreciate your ad hominem.
    Cheers!

  59. Amen and thank you Ms. Sharp. I believe those same things and think sometimes I’m in the minority for believing that way. I worked when I had no kids – decided to have children later in life and stayed at home with them and still do. I strongly believe that is the number one thing wrong with this country and our school system. Parents need to make that stand and stay home and raise their children – why have children and allow someone else to raise your children. FAMILIES FIRST!!

  60. Sheila,
    Thanks….it is always nice to know that there are kindred spirits out there.

    Thanks for reading! :)

  61. Dear Ms. Sharp,
    Inasmuch as I respect your sharp whit, intelligence and right to express your views and opinions, I lost a lot of respect for you after reading your last reply to Lain. What she did was explain why some of your views simply are a tad wee bit off. You clearly demonstrate a lack of basic understanding of various political philosophies, and she was making a very delicate attempt to educate you. When you base your beliefs on misconceptions, your opinions are still valid, but they lack substance.
    You claim to believe in the only one true God, and I wonder which God this is. How is it possible, out of the millions of people who believe in God?
    Who determines who is a good Christian? Who gave you the divine powers to throw the first rock?
    A common method of self defence, which you apply in your reply to Lain, is to overcompensate when you express your insecurity:

    “Constitution: The Constitution is a not a living/breathing document and can not be changed via fiat by a rogue elitist President and his liberal minions in Congress. Changes to our Constitution must be completed according to the rules set out by the Constitution. The whims of social liberals, corrupt lawmakers, and immoral minorities are not grounds for changing the structure, meaning, and intent of our Constitution. That is not to say that the Constitution can’t be changed (as it was for slavery, as an example) but that it is accomplished through the Constitution’s rules, not slipped through some legislation from Congress or an “executive order” from a radical President.”

    You are trying to defend your agenda, but you are treading on such thin ice that you’re about to fall in the water.

    To quote Mike Lux from his book The progressive Revolution: How the best in America came to be:
    “Progressives invented the American ideal and inspired the American Revolution. Conservatives, then known as Tories, opposed it. Since then, every major advancement in American freedom, democracy, social justice, and economic opportunity has been fostered, fought for, and won by progressives against conservative resistance. Now who’s anti-American?” I dare you to read this link:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-creamer/the-one-big-thing-george_b_158092.html

    One may suggest that Democrats and Liberals and others you seem to refer to as “dumb” base their thinking on intellectualism and humanitarian believes, whereas Republicans and Conservatives base their thinking on old inbred and emotionally fueled ideas.

    Just because you talk loud and wear a lapel pin you are no more patriotic than a soft spoken person who truly believes in Democracy, human rights, civil rights, equality, fairness, kindness, honesty, love, peace and HOPE.

    This country is almost in ruin, thanks to 8 years of Republican politics, and it is definitely time for CHANGE.

    Peace

  62. Lovejoy,

    Ah, the sweet smell of a superiority complex in the evening….

    I’m so sorry that I didn’t grasp my lessons so clearly outlined by commenter “Guns are bad, know your place woman, and Socialism is great” Lain. Would you rather I have responded with “Your right, I’m not worthy?”

    You claim you respect my right to portray my views, but you’ve lost respect when I’ve done so?

    You accuse me of just flat out being wrong and insinuate that I am just too ignorant to understand the nuanced view of Lain and yourself with little from you to back it up.

    There is such a thing called “debate”. When I express my views on MY blog, any reader is then free to counter those with facts and/or well thought-out views for consideration.

    Lain expressed his/her views which I appreciate and credit him/her for….I pointed out where those statements were wrong in my view, and, yes, defended myself and my views, since both were countered, and on some, attacked.

    And your post drips of arrogance…It reads like this in a nice British accent: “I am right because I’m so enlightened and not held down by those dreary traditional and Constitutional views….now go away you silly little believer in God (flick of hand).”

    In the words of Victor Davis Hanson, on arrogance and elitism so prevalent in the Democrat party (ie Progressives):
    “Nobody likes to be lectured by those claiming superior wisdom but often lacking common sense about everything from out-of-control spending and predicting the weather to dealing with enemies who are trying to kill us all.”

    But let’s see if you can “enlighten” me.

    You said, “You clearly demonstrate a lack of basic understanding of various political philosophies”.
    What philosophies are not clearly understood by me? Please explain.
    Is it Marxism? Socialism? In some ways, these two are indistinguishable. Both advocate public ownership of goods in an economic system. Socialism can exist within different political systems. However Marxism/Communism usually advocates public ownership in control of a few “elites”. Both are anathema to individual freedom espoused in our Constitution.

    Let’s talk about Christianity and the one true God.
    You accuse me of throwing rocks. Unless you are a very defensive person, how can you possibly say I’ve thrown a rock at anyone simply because I have stated and/or defended my beliefs? Lain also accused me of judging when I simply stated my beliefs. In doing so, I am not judging the person reading it. But I suppose one who is defensive about such things may read it that way.

    My value system is based largely upon my religious beliefs. I believe my rights are unalienable (given
    by God) as outlined in the Constitution. I proclaim my views and defend my value system.
    If my views are based upon “misconceptions” that allow my “insecurity” to hang out…well upon what would your value system, then, be based upon? The church of Progressivism with Obama as God and FDR as deacon? Where do your rights originate?

    My belief in America and her greatness is based upon our Founders brilliant writings and intent, the Constitution, and individual liberty and freedom.
    Is there really anything else for which we should base our belief and deep respect for America?

    I had to laugh when I read this statement by you: “A common method of self defence, which you apply in your reply to Lain, is to overcompensate when you express your insecurity” and then you used my views on the Constitution as an example.
    Overcompensate? I simply countered Lain’s view of it.
    And, if the Constitution is not a mostly static document (with accomodations for proper amendments) then who gets to decide where its truths become dynamic? Where does this breathing end—-when the principles of our founders can no longer be seen in our country?

    As far as your “Progressive Revolution”. I’ve read plenty about it. And unfortunately, your HuffPo link is not exactly the end-all repository for all things historical. Because one left-leaning author claims that progressives founded the country, ended slavery, enacted the Civil Rights act, and conservatives have been hateful disrupters and losers through it all, just doesn’t make me want to go and worship his work as a lord-inspired progressive bible.

    For the sake of some attempt at brevity, let’s just put aside all of the historical progressions and branches of Enlightenment, progressives, conservatives, liberals, Democrats, and Republicans that your author seems to completely disregard. Let’s talk in the nearer term (1960′s- now).

    * Where are those “progressives” fighting for social justice for the unborn? the elderly?
    * Where have those “progressives” been while Bush (and others) advocated for and advanced freedom to millions of women, men, children, and, yes, homosexuals from the tyranny of murderous dictators and religious fanatics around the world?
    * Who was it that ousted a murderous dictator, stayed the course, and started a democracratic structure in place in Iraq? (hint: Republican Bush)
    * What President couldn’t muster timely words in support of those in the Iranian uprising for freedom against a tyrannical religiously fanatical regime? (hint: progressive Obama)
    * Which party authored the Civil Rights act of 1875 and introduced multiple versions of Civil Rights legislation in the 1950′s and 60′s, while also playing a key role in the 1964 Civil Rights act that passed? (hint: Republicans)
    * Which party currently has an ex-KKK member as an elected official in DC who also filibustered against the 1964 Civil Rights legislation for many hours? (hint: progressive Democratic party (Sen. Byrd))
    * Which of today’s prominent progressive politicians had a Democratic father staunchly opposed to the 1964 Civil Rights legislation? (hint: Al Gore)

    And those are but a very view of the questions/facts that refute the notion of “progressives” alone promote freedom, rights, and social justice.

    You said, “Just because you talk loud and wear a lapel pin you are no more patriotic than a soft spoken person who truly believes in Democracy, human rights, civil rights, equality, fairness, kindness, honesty, love, peace and HOPE. “

    Talk about defensive…I never claimed to be MORE patriotic than you or anyone else. I talk “loud” because I started my own blog and state my views there. You wanna talk “loud”, start you own blog.
    And wearing a lapel pin doesn’t make me or anyone else any more patriotic than someone who doesn’t.

    But I am surprised that someone as “enlightened” as yourself didn’t understand my comment about lapel pins as a reference to Obama and other left-leaners who have obnoxiously flaunted their LACK of a pin as patriotism. Not wearing one is one thing…flaunting it as patriotic is another.

    Finally, you used the words “truly believes”. Is that meant to insinuate that my views and my patriotism don’t TRULY espouse Democracy, human rights, civil rights, equality, fairness, kindess, honesty, love, peace, and HOPE?
    If so, then who really is being judgemental and small-minded?

  63. I found your blog through your Facebook connection. Thank you for taking the time and the risk to stand up.

    This is a great resource for information, intelligent opinions and links to the best and brightest sources for conservatism.

    I will be pointing many people to this blog.

  64. Regarding the discussion on guns. The old saying that “God created man, but Sam Colt made them equal” is not simply a bumper sticker, but something to think about.

    If firearms all disappeared tonight, then tomorrow the useless eaters will be creating mayhem using machetes. It will NEVER be a matter of eliminating violence, it is simply a matter of what weapon will be used. Useless eaters will attack individually or in hoardes — all written history carries that message.

    For myself, I’m not too handy with a machete, and I sure wouldn’t want to have to deal with three useless eaters brandishing machetes. I’d daresay that very few persons outside of Navy Seals could stand up to three of them.

    With a pistol in hand one would stand a chance, and if one was a practiced shot, he could easily prevail.

    I fully support anyone’s choice NOT to own a firearm. Will those same people fully support my choice TO OWN a firearm as well?

    Let’s call it “firearm diversity” or “tolerance” and be done with it.

    Nate Liber

  65. Found your blog via your dialogue on a liberal blogger’s site. Very interesting! Looking forward to reading more.

  66. Hi, nice to meet you !

  67. We have the Constitutional Right to Bear Arms and Defend Ourselves – 2nd Amendment

    “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    It is a right not a privilege, just like you have the right to live and breath.

    Right to Bear Arms is an unalienable right; it cannot be given to someone by someone else, they already have it at birth, and thus, it cannot be taken away no matter how good the reason seems to be.

    “Do not punish or deny the rights of the masses for the sins of the few”

    This applies to any and all rights and privileges stated in the Constitution of the United States.

    The Second Amendment is one of our most cherished. The right to keep and bear arms is what keeps government subservient to its citizenry. Without the right to bear arms, we would have anarchy in the streets, the criminals would still have guns, and violent crime would escalate.

    Thomas Paine:
    “Arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.”
    We plan on exercising these rights to the fullest extent of the Constitutional Law.

    Our society today is brainwashed that when some people abuse their constitutional rights we must punish all of society and revoke that right and privilege.

    When some one uses a weapon, any weapon, gun, knife, pick, ax, saw, car, etc. they get prosecuted, when convicted, they are sentenced not all the people of the country.

    Abuse by some people has been going on since creation and will continue till the end of time. We must control and punish the abusers, not the whole society.

    Case and point is the punishment society is taking today due to terrorism. Since governments are helpless to fight and control terrorism they punish the masses in the name of safety and cause extreme economic hardship and the loss of our constitutional liberties.

    There are Nations that under their Laws citizens are permitted to posses firearms. Check out some of those countries. Crime rate has not increased. Abuses happen, the abusers are punished and not the rest of society.

    It is a known historical fact that the Criminal will always find a way to get a weapon.

    Restricting the average citizen from having a weapon to protect himself and his family, leaves the door open to the criminal to violate those citizens, due to the knowledge that the average citizen has no weapon and cannot protect himself and his family.

    A weapon is a tool like any other tool and should be used properly.

    A knife, pick, ax, saw, car, etc. is also a tool that must be used properly. It is not outlawed, is it?

    A car in today’s society is an absolute must. Do the citizens of this country know how many people are killed and injured by automobiles every year, it amounts to thousands, which is much less than with guns.

    And to those who would say this was but a “temporary violation” for the greater good, Ben Franklin admonishes;

    “THOSE WHO WOULD GIVE UP LIBERTIES TO OBTAIN FREEDOM DESERVE NEITHER.

    Folks, we live in dangerous times, a government that does not trust its citizens to bear arms, is a government not to be trusted by its citizens.

    As the threat to all of our liberties continue basically unabated, remember the words of the great political philosopher Edmund Burke; “The only way for evil men to prosper is for good men to do nothing.”

    The right to keep and bear arms should be of great importance to all Americans, if we are to remain a free country we MUST NOT let this right be taken from us
    Remember, freedom isn’t free. God Bless you, and God, please bless the United States of America.

    PS
    The Supreme Court ruled on the Heller case at the end of its term in June, 2008. The Court, which found for Heller in a close 5-4 decision, wrote that the 2nd Amendment did, in fact, protect an individual right. While the court was careful to note that the case did not call into question any laws that regulate guns, it did state, unequivocally, that Heller and his fellow petitioners had a right to own guns in their home. The Court also ruled that while reasonable regulation may be permitted, the requirement that guns be locked and disassembled was not reasonable.

    Supreme Court affirms fundamental right to bear arms
    Tuesday, June 29, 2010;
    MCDONALD v. CHICAGO Syllabus
    The Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment right, recognized in Heller, to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self defense. Pp. 5–9, 11–19, 19–33.
    The Second Amendment provides Americans a fundamental right to bear arms that cannot be violated by state and local governments, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a long-sought victory for gun rights advocates.
    The 5 to 4 decision does not strike down any gun-control laws, nor does it elaborate on what kind of laws would offend the Constitution. One justice predicted that an “avalanche” of lawsuits would be filed across the country asking federal judges to define the boundaries of gun ownership and government regulation.
    But Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who wrote the opinion for the court’s dominant conservatives, said: “It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.”
    The decision extended the court’s 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller that “the Second Amendment protects a personal right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes, most notably for self-defense within the home.” That decision applied only to federal laws and federal enclaves such as Washington; it was the first time the court had said there was an individual right to gun ownership rather than one related to military service.

  68. FHL FRUIT OF LIFE
    Are We Really a Christian Nation ?
    Written by Minister MarcAlan

    There are two ministers. Both involved in politics, one an outspoken republican and the other an outspoken democrat. Each one putting his political party first. They argue and criticize other Christians who disagree with their political views. They divide Christians and encourage quarreling among them. Is this right in Gods sight? Should Christians align themselves to a political party? As Christians shouldn’t our purpose and focus be to do Gods will? According to God’s word, we are not representatives of a political party; but instead we are representatives of Christ. The Holy Spirit is never and cannot be double minded. Both political parties republican and democratic alike have this in common; they both lack the guidance of the Holy Spirit. So are we really a Christian nation? Is Christ the focus of our nation? And what about the church? Is the church influencing the world? Or is the world influencing the church? When you hear contemporary gospel music do you feel the presence of the holy spirit? Does it make you want to worship God? As Christians do we produce the fruit of the spirit? According to Gal. 5: 22-23(NLT) the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Is there a distinction between those who call themselves Christians from non-Christians? Do we have church leaders who overtly practice sin? Do we have Christians who knowingly ignore the practice of sin by church leaders? As a nation do we promote or support sins against God? As a nation do we promote or support sexual immorality? As a nation do we promote or support homosexuality? As a nation do we promote or support idolatry?

    As a nation do we promote or support prayer in school? As a nation do we promote or support removing Christ from Christmas? As a nation do we promote or support celebrating a rabbit instead of the cross? As a nation do we promote or support materialism? As a nation do we teach our children to live a life accountable to God? As a nation do we submit to God? As a nation do we put God first? As a nation are we proud and arrogant? And is it not God who sets himself against the proud and arrogant? As a nation do we promote or support separation between church and state? As Christians we are the church and the church is the body of Christ. Anything apart or separated from Christ is dead! Rather it be one person or a whole nation. So are we really a Christian nation? You tell me!

  69. James:
    You raise some interesting issues. Let me tell you why I disagree with you respectfully.
    1. Christianity is based on INDIVIDUAL salvation. We come to the altar as individuals.
    2. Capitalism is about INDIVIDUALISM. I’m reminded of Atlas Shrugged, though the author, Ayn Rand, was an atheist, and flawed in my humble opinion.
    3. Capitalism cannot function without ethics and morailty. Only the Judeo-Christian tradition brings this to the individual without state pressure, which is never good.
    4. Just because we in the U.S. believe we can replace God with Hollywood, sex, and egoism/selfishness, does not mean we are not a Judeo-Christian nation. In surveys people say they believe in God (not Allah) by 80% (4/5)…
    5. On the diff between Dems and Reps, IO prefer to use the words Libs and Cons..
    Libs believe the state can solve problems; Cons believe the individual can solve problems. Fortunately, the individual part is aligned with Judeo-Christina values…

  70. The United states is not a “Christian Nation” and it was not based on Christian principles. Romans 13 states that all men must be subject to the governing authorities. It specifically states that Rebels go against “what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves”.

    You may be familiar with a little conflict known as the Revolutionary War. During the course of the Revolution, the Founding Fathers frequently violated the Bible. How can a Christian Nation be created when it was founded by violating the Word of God?

    We are a nation with a (quickly vanishing) Christian Majority, but we are by no means a Christian nation.

  71. Nathaniel,
    You are sadly mistaken to believe that government must be obeyed at the expense of the laws of God/Christianity, freedom, and morality.

    If we just pretend that the Founding Fathers, as religious colonists, had no right to go against the British tyranny, then does anyone have the right to fight against tyranny and suppression of freedom? Did the world have the right to stop Hitler’s power? Stalin’s? Lenin’s?

    The colonists fought against a King/country that had clearly been operating outside the biblical reasonings of a civil government. The colonists’ actions were not a violation of the word of God, but a support of it.

    Our country is a country founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and morality and is a Christian nation. That doesn’t mean we are a theocracy, but nearly every fiber of our beginnings and the meaning behind our Constitution and laws is Christan-based.

    Our preamble includes that we have rights endowed by our Creator. The King nor the government gives us those rights….the Creator does.

    Have a great weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving.

  75. Boria,
    I have just been so busy that blogging has taken a back seat to everything else. Thank you for missing it. :)

    I will be blogging again as I can. I always have lots of thoughts, but don’t have time to write them all down.

    I did see Palin’s op-ed….she was spot-on, too. The politicians have been occupying Wall Street for a long time!

    Same to you…Happy Thanksgiving.

  76. Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.
