Today is Flag Day!

15 June 2015

homecoming-marine-rockwellToday we celebrate Flag Day.  Are you still proud of our flag?  Are you proud to be an American?  I am.  However,  if political correctness has its way our freedom to speak and think freely may be lost…simply being proud of our Country or of our flag may be considered to be a form of microagression.  Shockingly, but typical for the  so very “tolerant”  left,  Janet Napolitano,  former secretary of homeland Security and now President of the University of California system has banned certain words and phrases which may be a form of microagression.  Apparently, if you  express that “America is the land of opportunity”  you are being offensive.

Please practice and support your God given right to think and speak and believe as you wish.  Please spread the word about this crime of political correctness before it’s too late.  For more information on this story click here.

Memorial Day Poem

25 May 2015

man flag dogThese did not pass in selfishness;
they died for all mankind;
They died to build a better world
for all who stay behind;
And we who hold their memory dear,
and bring them flowers today,
Should consecrate ourselves once more
to live and die as they.

They were defenders of the faith
and guardians of the truth;
That you and I might live and love,
they gladly gave their youth;
And we who set this day apart
to honor them who sleep
Should pledge ourselves to hold the faith
they gave their lives to keep.

If tears are all we shed for them,
then they have died in vain;
If flowers are all we bring them,
forgotten they remain;
If by their courage we ourselves
to courage are not led,
Then needlessly these graves have closed
above our heroes dead.

To symbolize our love with flowers
is not enough to do;
We must be brave as they were brave,
and true as they were true.
They died to build a better world,
and we who mourn today
Should consecrate ourselves once more
to live and die as they.

Is There Really a Consensus?

31 March 2015

images(4)The following quotes given in a lecture at Cal Tech in 2003 are from the late Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park.  Perhaps these should be on the forefront of our mind when we encounter our next evolutionist or global-warming alarmist who insists that the matter is settled and all discussion should be stopped.

“I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

“Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.

“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”

Children are Dogs, Teenagers are Cats

27 March 2015

books with cat

“I just realized that while children are dogs—loyal and affectionate—teenagers are cats.

It’s so easy to be a dog owner. You feed it, train it, boss it around. It puts its head on your knee and gazes at you as if you were a Rembrandt painting. It bounds indoors with enthusiasm when you call it.

Then, around age 13, your adoring puppy turns into a big old cat. When you tell it to come inside, it looks amazed, as if wondering who died and made you emperor.

Instead of dogging your footsteps, it disappears. You won’t see it again until it gets hungry…then it pauses on its sprint through the kitchen long enough to turn up its nose at whatever you’re serving, swishing its tail and giving you an aggrieved look until you break out the tuna again.

When you reach out to ruffle its head in that old affectionate gesture, it twists away from you, then gives you a blank stare as if it is trying to remember where it has seen you before.

You, not realizing your dog is now a cat, think something must be desperately wrong with it. It seems so antisocial, so distant, sort of depressed. It won’t go on family outings. Since you’re the one who raised it, taught it to fetch, stay and sit on command, you assume you did something wrong. Flooded with guilt and fear, you redouble your efforts to make your pet behave.

Only now you’re dealing with a cat, so everything that worked before now has the opposite result. Call it, and it runs away. Tell it to sit, and it jumps on the counter. The more you go toward it, wringing your hands, the more it moves away.

Instead of continuing to act like a dog owner, you must learn to behave like a cat owner. Put a dish of food near the door and let it come to you. But remember that a cat needs your help and affection too. Sit still and it will come, seeking that warm, comforting lap it has not entirely forgotten. Be there to open the door for it.

One day your grown up child will walk into the kitchen, give you a big kiss and say,

“You’ve been on your feet all day. Let me get those dishes for you.” Then, you’ll realize your cat is a dog again.”

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied
the previous failed attempts at government.
He understood actual history,
the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man.
That happens to be way more than what most understand today.
Jefferson really knew his stuff.

A voice from the past to Lead us in the future-
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House
for a group of the brightest minds
in the nation at that time. He made this statement:
“This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence
ever to gather at one time in the White House
with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe .”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation
to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on
would save one-half the wars of the world.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans
if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people
under the pretense of taking care of them.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government
results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people
to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed
from time to time with the blood
of patriots and tyrants.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes
the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves
and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
— Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions
are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their currency,
first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up
around the banks will deprive the people
of all property –
until their children wake-up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered.”
