Red Envelope Day

25 02 2009

 

This is an event where on March 31 and or February 28-March 1 everyone who opposes abortion and wants to let President Obama know about it will send a Red envelope addressed to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington , D.C. 20500

On the back you should write:

“This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion.
It is empty because the life that was taken away and is now unable to be a part of our world.”

This will be a great way for all pro-life people out there to let President Obama know that we don’t approve of killing innocent babies.  I strongly encourage you to participate in this and let our voices be heard.  We are hoping to get at least 50 million envelopes out in the mail to represent the 50 million+ children that have died.

If you would like to participate just send in an envelope or join the Facebook group here





So you would really vote for this guy?

Questions even Obama couldn’t answer

1 10 2008

Here is an E-Mail that I received today.  After I read it, I knew it just had to be posted for all to see.

Obama feels rural Americans cling to their religions over economic bitterness. I wonder what bitterness caused you to cling to Rev.
Wright?

Don’t you think it’s funny that Obama avoided town hall debates with Senator McCain, but at the same time Obama was not willing to postpone a debate in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and put country first? Could this be because he is “gulity” of something?

Who recieved the most campaign contributions from Wall Street Obama or McCain for 2007 & 2008?

How can Obama criticize Senator McC ain’s time and record in Washington when Obamas’ running-mate has been there LONGER and he has a better track record of going against his own party? Obama voted with his Democratic colleagues 97% of the time even bothered to vote in his less than one full Senate term… 

How can Obama possibly create jobs when he plan’s on raising business taxes?

That is to say, not even Obamas’ “Fight the Smears” website answered these questions, but that leads me to another: why is he hypocritically implying that the GOP and the Right are launching these attacks when most of them came from the Clinton campaign? Is Obama that afraid of losing support? 

Why does Obama – the the 2 recipien t of Fannie & Freddie over the last 9 years who has only been in the Senate for just 3 years – offer sarcasm and not answers to the Wall Street plunge? 

Why does Obama say he supports the 2nd Amendment. Yet didn’t sign Friend Of The Court Brief for the Supreme Court.
and why did he vote NO on letting people have guns in home for self defense?

How can Obama question John McCain‘s committment to capture and/or kill Osama Bin Laden? Where was Obama when he was voting to authorize the use of force in Afghanistan and working with this President to freeze terrorist assets at home and abroad???

Obama – He was a community organizer in Chicago – could ANYONE fr om Chicago please let us know what communities those were and how well those communities are doing? Also, what has Obama done in his past that gives him the right to say you’ll make a ‘change?’ – what POSITIVE changes has Obama brought about in past time that would makes us believe that he can actually make a POSITIVE change?

Because Obamas’ platform is built on “hope” and “change”, it is essential to bridge the gap between meaningless rhetoric and substantive truth if he expects to think individuals consider supporting him.
With this common sense knowledge, why is Obamas’ campaign failing to quantify, or define these me aningless rhetorical terms? 

McCain has been on the senate for 21 years and served in the U.S. Navy.
What makes Obama a more qualified candidate than John McCain if he only has just three years in the Senate and no prior leader experience or have done anything significantly vocal in the Senate? 

Why won’t Obama meet with Senator John McCain at a Town Hall format when he will meet with third world dictators without preconditions? 

Does Obama know Thomas Jefferson said, ” a government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have” ? 

How is that Obama says he will bring the soldiers home when all he will be doing is redeploying them to Afganistan?

Senator Obama speaks very highly of taking the lobbyists out of Washington, yet the political action committee that he operated, “The Hopefund”, has taken hundreds of millions from federal lobbyists during this campaign season alone. He said he wants the DNC to abstain from taking lobbyist money and yet they now have one of the biggest lobbyists in Colorado raising money for the convention. The Washington Post published a story saying he had over $600 million in corporate bundlers…hmmm.

A recent TV add asks Sen. McCain if “Baby Alex” would have to go to Iraq if he were elected.
My question to Obama is, how many “Baby Alexes” would we have to send to fix the mess in themiddle east if we take out our troops too soon and leave an unstable Iraq prone to constant violence and civil war, an iraq that is a breeding ground for terrorists or worse an Iraq that is a puppet regeme ofIran

Why does Obama pass judgment on McCain and our soldiers in Iraq, when he himself has refused to visit Iraq or speak with General Petraeus, all while stating that he would meet, without conditions, an evil man such as Ahmadinejad of Iran?

Why is Obama so nasty as to accuse McCain of being a flip-flopper for simply changing his mind about drilling oil, while he LIED by promising not to run his campaign by unlimited, private funds? What are a man’s morals like Obama if he will attack his opponent incorrectly, break a promise to voters, and hurt his opponent by gaining an UNFAIR advantage, so he can win office? How does he live with himself? 

How can Obama honestly believe that he will do a better job leading America through a war than say, John McCain? Not only is he FAR less experienced in politics, but as shown by his socialist proposals, how does he plan to keep this country from crumbling to nothing? Is it all lies that Obama is saying only to get the support of blind people who can’t see through him so he can make it to office, and then royally screw America over? 

Why does Obama not want to drill for oil in Anwar (I would rather pay $5.00 a gallon for AMERICAN oil than $5.00 for any oil that comes from any country that gives money to terrorist.) 

I read today that Obama will “‘require’ employers to set up retirement savings plans.”Obama has a law degree. Surely he is aware you cannot “require” a company to do anything. If they CHOOSE to have a plan, you can “require” it contain certain elements.

Does Obama realize eloquent speeches to not resonate with most Americans? Wise Americans will take the time to look at his voting record..Do es Obama realize he is not running for a community organizer but a for a leader of a country with problems HE HAS NEVER never addressed? Dosen’t he realize that when he voted “present” most of the time.. it shows he didn’t want to play it safe for your his sake? Obama can fool some of the people some of the time..but not all of the people all of the time.

Obama keeps promising change. Change requires hard work.
Why is that his absent vote is 40,2% in the Senate and during the remaining votes he pressed ‘present’ over 130 times? Why is it that he hasent worked for change before? Can we expect any change in his attitude if he beco mes the president? 

Obama is the most liberal senator in Washington, and nearly 1/3 of Clinton supporters say they won’t vote for him.
How can he possibly ‘unify’ America when even liberal people refuse to vote for him?

Why did Obama vote against funding our troops after promising not to use them as pawns in a war funding debate? 

Why did Barack Obama give away less than 1% of his income prior to running for the US Senate? Does he really believe in helping people? I am 29 years old and probably make way less than Barack Obama during the years before running for Senate and I give significantly more but am labeled as one who does not want to help the poor.Why do words speak louder than actions sometimes?

“She’s bringing home the bacon”

1 03 2008

Have you ever heard women say, “I have rights too.”  Or, “I’m just as good as a man”?  These are very popular these days along with many others.  Women want to be just like men.  They aren’t happy with doing the things God created them to do.  They want to be the man of the family. 

When did this start to happen?

The whole women’s rights concept started after World War 1.  This was because while the men were fighting, the women had to go and work in factories or stores to keep the family and the towns running.  After the war was over, many of the women like the freedom they had felt.  They liked the independence.  Groups started popping out everywhere for “Women’s rights!” and, “Freedom!”  At first most women looked down on these groups.  But the younger women liked the change.  As the years progressed and women’s thoughts changed, more and more women began to like the idea.  It only took another 25 years for women working to be normal.

Now look at what we have today.  The mother and the father go off and work everyday, sending the children off to an institution or child day care. We have increased debt because, the parents think they can buy more because of the 2 figure income. We have a society where the women working will respect their bosses, but have little to no regard for their husbands, and women would rather go out and work because it’s their “right” than teach their children.

Women don’t understand that God didn’t create them to work and be the providers of the home.  He made the women to be a help meets to her husband.  To help their husband in what he is doing.  To teach and help raise the children.  To keep the house running and things moving together.  If you tell that to any women in the work force, they will think you are crazy.  They would much rather be the males of the house.

God created men to go out and be the providers for the family.  God created the woman out of man, for the man, and to be a keeper at the home.  Any other way goes against what God has made it to be, and in the end will make a home discontent.





The entertainment church

24 02 2008

Churches these days are mainly made up for entertainment.  Think about it.  Step into a modern day church and you see, “child care center”, “Sunday school”, “youth ministry center”, and many others.  But what is the real thing that lies behind those signs?  “Put your kids in our day-care classes so your wife can go out and work”, “Dump your child off here because they can’t worship with you in the sanctuary”, “Here’s a good place where you can ship your teens off to go and hang with other non-believing teens”. 

I may sound harsh, but that is how far our churches have fallen. If the kids aren’t entertained, then they won’t want to come to church.  And if they don’t want to come to church, then they don’t get the traffic for their church.   

We got a letter a few days ago inviting us to attend a church that is in our area.  It was colorful, with big bold letters.  It had a children and teen center!  It had a women and men’s Bible study group!  It even had its own charter school and daycare center!!  But do you know the one thing it didn’t say anything about on there?  God.  A Christian church with out one word about God. 

If we are going to get America back on its feet, then we need to start at the church.  This nation was built on solid Christian views, and now that we have let the world come in, we have slipped so far.  The church has become part of the world. 

Please feel free to leave me any comments.
