Too good not to post

Genesis 47:13-27
Genesis 47:13-27
I would love to give the Pastor of this predominantly black church in Virginia a hug and a high five. This guy is obviously a leader.
Perhaps we should each decide who our real leader is.....It is amazing to see that very little has changed in 4,000 years.

Good morning, brothers and sisters; it's always a delight to see the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into God's Word. Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will to the 47th chapter of Genesis, we'll begin our reading at verse 13, and go through verse 27.
Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us? .....(reading)...
Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray. So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt, and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.
So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their livestock -their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey - to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through the end of that year.
But the famine wasn't over, was it? So the next year, the people came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except their land and their own lives. "There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food, and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh." So they surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to Pharaoh's government, and then sold themselves into slavery to him, in return for grain.
What can we learn from this, brothers and sisters?
That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes.. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master?
But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen. And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly." God provided for His people, just as He always has! They didn't end up giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained possessions! But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous one.
We see the same thing happening today - the government today wants to "share the wealth" once again, to take it from us and redistribute it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years ago - as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.
What Mr. Obama's government is doing now is no different from what Pharaoh's government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of people like to call Mr.Obama a "Messiah," don't they? Is he a Messiah? A savior? Didn't the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves, "You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh"?
Well, I tell you this - I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine; and Mr. OBAMA IS NO MESSIAH! No, brothers and sisters, if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh. Bow with me in prayer, if you will...
Lord, You alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on You, and You alone. We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be. We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people of what a ruler would do, where it says "And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.."
And Lord, we acknowledge that day has come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that we have chosen for ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray for revival, and we pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to seek You and hands to serve You, and protect Your people from the atrocities of Pharaoh's government.
In God We Trust...

Devistating to America, by Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum is a former Republican senator from Pennsylvania and a senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

This legislation will indeed be historic in its destructive effect if it is not repealed or substantially altered. This bill will devastate our economy and its ability to create jobs and a higher standard of living; government spending and debt will explode; health care quality and choices for most Americans will suffer; and millions more innocent children in the womb will be killed. Worse still, to avoid bankrupting the country, care will be rationed so only those “useful lives” will be given the care they need. (emphasis mine)

This day will go down as either the day that America turned its back on our unique system of democratic capitalism or the day that ignited a firestorm to reclaim the vision that has made our country the greatest in the history of the world. Today is owned by those who believe that an all powerful federal government is the future of our republic, tomorrow freedom-loving patriots will begin the fight against this tyranny to reclaim our birthright.

Why obama won't show his birth certificate.

I was listening to talk radio yesterday and a guy called in with a really good idea about obama's birth certificate. My wife Karin said the same thing to me a while back and i never made the connection. Here is their beliefs.

When obama was born, his mother was single. When a single woman has a child, the race of the mother is listed on the birth certificate as the race of the child. After all, the hospital has no way of knowing what the fathers race is. Since obama's mother was single at the time, what race do you think is listed on his birth certificate? Yep, white as a snowflake. So you see, we have not elected the first black president yet, obama is just a typical lying white rich blue blood politician.

I am sure he was born in Hawaii like he says, he just doesn't want the world to know that he is white. It makes sense when you think about it.

GPS Logic

I finally broke down and bought a GPS unit. I held out for years because i am quite capable of reading a map. I decided that it may be easier to use the GPS than dragging a map with me in my travels. Now i have the GPS and maps as a backup because i don't trust the GPS. I know, it makes me laugh as well.

I took the GPS and played with it around town to determine how well it works. It works well enough to get me close which is good enough for me. I don't however agree with its logic. So this got me to thinking, how does the GPS use logic to map a route.

I was able to program some preferences into my GPS unit so it will map according to my preferences. The problem is that the logic the GPS devices uses doesn't necessarily mean it's logical. For example, logically, the shortest distance is also the fastest route. Logically, that makes sense. Realistically, it's not true. I can go past a destination and come back on a route with no traffic lights and be faster than the shortest route with traffic lights. The GPS doesn't factor traffic lights. It also doesn't even consider going past the destination.

Also, the data uploaded to the GPS is only as good as what is provided. Sometimes the searches do not bring the right results. I guess it's because the GPS units are only updated annually.

The GPS would be fine In a place where i am unfamiliar. It will get me to the destination which is what it was meant for. It may not be the best route to take but what do i know, i am using it because i don't know where i am going to begin with. I will tell you what works really well, my GPS in conjunction with my blackberry. My blackberry can look up places in real time and it also can map a route to the destination. If i program the GPS with the destination, it gets me there better than the blackberry because it constantly refreshes it's position.

Peace out and good luck with national healthcare.

Tell me i am wrong, please!!

Let me get this straight……we’re trying to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also hasn’t read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.

Fraudulent? Why would you say that???

I made someone's shit list

Our Bishop for our diocese decided last year to ramp up the pressure that the community needs to put on planned parenthood. He started a group called Midland Catholics For Life to do just that. Being a member of the Knights of Columbus and pro-life, the Bishop taxed us Knights to step up and help out. One of the request of the Bishop was for us to write letters to the editor trying to bring awareness of what planned parenthood is doing in our town.

You see, the planned parenthood in Midland serves 50 counties in West Texas. They are the only abortion mill in these 50 counties. They have a circuit abortionist who comes by on Friday's to perform these abortions. They kill between 20-30 babies a week in Midland.

planned parenthood hosted the Vagina Monologue's (V-Day)as a fund raiser in Midland. V-Day was founded as a battered women's awareness group and they tour the country raising awareness of battered and abused women. All told, V-Day seems to be a good organization.

I wrote a letter to the paper stating that i thought it was funny that a company that made its living abusing and killing innocent babies sponsored a company that made its living by stopping abuse to women. Apparently i pissed the CEO of the local planned parenthood off. I Love it.

She responded by trying to make me out as an idiot in the paper. The problem is that we can only write a letter to the editor once a month and she got the last word. It is GAME ON as far as i am concerned.

I am patiently waiting for my month to pass and i am going to call her out like a cheap whore at a revival. I am going to ask her why on their website they explain the abortion process as "gently emptying your uterus" when they are actually using a suction machine to tear a baby apart limb from limb and vacuum it out of the uterus. I guess her way sounds better. They worry about the discomfort of the woman getting the abortion but the little baby inside her, not at all. I am sure that having your arms, legs, ribs, and head sucked off your body would be described as anything but gentle. But hey, you can make money by proving a negative can you.

New additions to the family

I was out doing nothing today when i decided to step into one of my favorite little guns stores. I was looking for something odd that not a whole lot of people have. I cam across this little Beretta .32 Tomcat. My wife wants to get her concealed carry license and she wants a little pistol to keep in her truck. I thought, why the hell not. It should fit perfectly in her little hand. Be being the loving husband that i am, i got it for her.

Now that she got a new toy, i had to get one for myself. This is a sweet little jewel that should only increase in value. It is a GSG-5 made in Germany and distributed by ATI. the GSG-5 is an exact duplicate of the H&K MP 5. It is chambered in .22LR so i can shoot all day for pennies on the trigger pull. In 2009, H&K instituted a lawsuit against both German Sport Guns and American Tactical Imports, Inc., over trade dress infringements. The lawsuit was settled in October of 2009, and resulted in the production and importation of the original GSG-5 design to cease as of Oct. 8, 2009. The remaining stocks will continue to be sold until January 31, 2010, at which time all sales of the GSG-5 by American Tactical Imports must be concluded.

Killer whale

OK, i have heard enough about the trainer who was attacked by the whale. I really don't care. The person knew he was working with a KILLER WHALE. How did he think they got that name, by being all snuggly?

Nobody should be shocked in my opinion. I am sure no one expected it but hey, it is a KILLER WHALE after all.
