PURPOSE AT EVERY STAGE

PSALM 71:18 (KJV)

Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

God has a purpose for us at every stage of life.  However, with increased age comes increased responsibility to pass on to others the truths of God’s Word and His ways.  Not only that, but we have a responsibility to pass on to future generations exactly the principles by which this country was founded.  If we don’t speak out now, all will be lost as we are steadily ushered into the transformation of existing under a NWO.  I personally don’t want to just exist.

I have always been a person who welcomed a change in technology to make things easier.  But as time has gone by, I see that it all was nothing more than to make us dependent on man and his ways.  Our govt is now taking huge leaps to make us dependent under them so that in the end they eliminate all but two choices – serve them or serve our Lord and Savior.

 Joshua 24:15 (KJV)

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

    Waiting for the rain to come rolling back in – darn it. I had big plans to finish things up out in the yard, but needless to say, the best made plans never materialized. Oh well, I am too tired now after running all over town with my daughter.

    I will catch up here in a few on all the latest and be back shortly.

    Re Duck Dynasty. Hilarious show. the recent one where they played tag on the Segways was so funny. I don’t catch the show as often as I’d like, but the ones I’ve seen are really good. I am glad they are rated so highly and the alphabet networks have to eat crow about it. Ha!

  4. cjzak says:

    Speaking of Duck Dynasty, they attended the big shindig with the Pres. and his zombie followers. I sure hope they are conservatives at heart.

  5. cabbyaz says:

    Thanks, Judy, for the wonderful opening to this thread. It is especially meaningful as, you know, I am the oldest in the Tribe. The “golden years” sort of sneaked up on me, and common tasks have become monumental ones, but I still want God to use me in any way for His glory.

    Also, the Joshua passage means a lot, too, because at an early age I said “yes” to “choose you this day whom you will serve….”

    Another familiar quote is (not a Bible verse) – “Only one life – will soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

  6. SueQ says:

    Hi cjzak,

    Cute pictures! If you’ve watched the show, then you realize they’re all about God , guns and family. You also realize they (the men) are not feminized. How refreshing! No wonder this show has garnered the ratings. Hope it stays that way.

    Can’t stand being aroung girly men!….Not gay necessarily, but just feminized (manicure nails, perfect hair and never did a days worth of hard manual labor in their life….You know, like Barry!)….euwwww -yuk!!!

    Needless to say, most gay guys automatically fall into that category.

    uhoh jr. What the heck is going on down there? Now potentially dog owners being background checked in NC? Hope this doesn’t happen. I also hope Mila isn’t on the list of breeds that trigger a check if it does happen. It cannot happen. It’s too crazy. Wait, what am I saying. These are Demmies. I should know better that they have no sense and will try to make it happen. Blaah.

    Never mind my above link. I see the proposed bill died in committee. Thank goodness.

  11. cjzak says:

    Yep they come in all sizes and professions. The entitlement, no personal responsibility folks. I fully agree we need to help the unfortunate and I realize alcohol addiction is a disease. This shouldn’t be a taxpayer problem however..

  12. jrCarolinas says:

    cj – Yeah Rodney Moore got blasted over that little bill by angry dog owners. He claims the wording was too harsh, but that something had to be done. Yeah right, he will never garner support the way it was presented. So it got shot down before it even got off the ground. You don’t mess with NC and their dogs. :)

  13. jrCarolinas says:

    It was only for the following breeds so Mila was not included:

    Pit bull, including the Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed, American Staffordshire Terrier breed, and American Pit Bull Terrier breed.

    Rottweiler, Mastiff, Chow, Perro de Presa Canario and wolf hybrids

    But it would have affected my cousin who lives 3 houses down – He has over 15 pitbull/lab mix and a couple of purebred pitbulls, one of which scares me at times.

    Here’s the bill

  14. Troy says:

    I used to work at an auto body shop that had a guard dog named Bridget that was half pit bull and boxer…..She would come up and want to be petted which was fine, but if you stopped petting her you’d better watch out because she’d bite the crap out of ya!….I ignored her, which was ok because she’d allow that…..Psycho dog!!!

  15. cjzak says:

    I must say that Mr. Moore sort of had a point though. The dog fighters, drug dealers and gang members here in my area, have used pit bulls and rotties for years as protection against their enemies and the police. They should all be strung up by the short hairs for what they’ve done to those beautiful animals. Too bad they wouldn’t be the ones targeted for the checks, just the law abiding gun owners.

    My nephew has an American bulldog–not a pit but in the bulldog family. Remi is a big, big boy and he has a very fierce growl. But he is a sweetheart. I wouldn’t mess with him but he has never bitten or gone after any person. When he plays with a toy, he tries to keep it away from you by holding it with his front paws and putting his head down over it. Then he growls and it sounds really mean and nasty but it is his way of playing. I would never try to take it away, but he gives it to my nephew… eventually. He has a tail that is long and thin and feels like a whip when it hits you because he wags it so hard when he greets you. Funny, sweet boy, but I am not entirely unafraid of him. I don’t let Gus anywhere near him as they are both unneutered. Gus wouldn’t have any idea how to defend himself.

  16. cjzak says:

    Oh my gosh Troy, Bridget must have been tough to work around. Hope they kept her away from everyone. So sad she never got to be socialized, but then some dogs are unfortunately just plain crazy. Kind of like liberals.

  17. Troy says:

    “Some dogs are unfortunately just plain crazy. Kind of like liberals.”

    By golly, I think you just coined a new quote and a damn good one at that!!!

  20. jrCarolinas says:

    I am asking for another very important prayer request – not for me but for my daughter’s fiance. Some of you may remember me saying he was having a hard time finding a job in this area. Well he finally found something part time but it was only working at Papa John’s pizza. Not the greatest paying job, but tips are OK, not to mention the wear and tear on my truck which he is having to use until he can get a decent job and get his own vehicle, because his clunker is just that – a clunker. None of the major factories have been hiring. Actually they laid off over 100 employees at the Bosch plant (they make those very expensive appliances) while they updated their facilities to expand and they all got hired back on just a few weeks ago. Well my daughter’s fiance is going for an interview tomorrow for 3rd shift full time employment with benefits at the plant. Please say a prayer, if it be the Lord’s will, to let him get the job. This job will be perfect for him as he is enrolled for the fall semester at the community college to get re-certified as an EMT since NC would not accept his national certification. That way if the plant lays off he will have another career he can fall back on if necessary. He has been here going on 2 yrs basically without employment. So I would appreciate a little extra prayer power. :)

  21. Troy says:

    Judy, he’s going to get the job….I know it! :D

    SueQ,
    What did I say that prompted this comment?

  34. fernleygirl says:

    Nothing we don’t know, or live with every day, but it’s interesting to see the numbers:

    http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2013/04/23/a-rise-in-wealth-for-the-wealthydeclines-for-the-lower-93/

  35. SueK says:

    Ya know, some people go through life searching for their purpose and asking ‘Why am I here?’ Many never find the answer; I have. It’s not something I sat down and noodled one day rather, I just looked at my life and it was right there.

    As far back as I can remember (and more so in the last 10 years), I have taken in animals no one wants; the most unwanted of the unwanteds. These critters are from shelters and rescues in the New England area and I seem to gravitate toward the misfits and throwaways, or perhaps they gravitate towards me? While many are adopted, there are some who languish with no homes and no love.

    These are the ones I adopt.

    My home currently contains a bonded pair of rabbits who were in foster care for over two years; no one had even made an appointment to meet them. I did.

    Next, I have a pair of guinea pigs, adopted separately for the same rescue in Vermont; yes, I will travel! Tha matriarch of my female’s former family told her kids that she ‘didn’t want that animal in her house.’ Well, I certainly wanted her in mine! Her mate’s former situation before going into the rescue was a very small pen with no human interaction. In the rescue, he got very few hits on his Petfinder page until I called; again, no one had even wanted to meet him.

    I will most likely lose my little lady tomorrow; her time on Earth is nearing the end. This little hamster was discovered in a dumpster in Boston last *February* with 13 cage mates. Some kind soul dropped a dime and a local shelter retrieved them. There’s a special place in hell for the person who did this; I guess it was too much trouble to call a shelter who would’ve taken the lot, no questions asked. She has had a wonderful year with me and although I’m heartbroken to be losing her, I take comfort in the fact that I’ve given her a very happy life.

    So, that’s my purpose. That’s why I’m here. I will continue to do what I do until I can do it no more. That’s exactly what He wants me to do….

  36. jrCarolinas says:

    SueK – I have read over the years of your posts on CW’s and Aussie’s sight re: your babies. Sorry that you are getting ready to lose another one of these little creatures. God will definitely bless you for what you do for them. All my critters except one are rescue animals. I have 3 dogs and 4 kitties and I do for them before I even do for myself.

    Thanks Fernley for your prayers.

    One more thing. I don’t remember where I read it, but someone said

    “You are what you eat, ATE.”

  38. SueK says:

    Thanks, Judy; Monday’s gonna be rough. I am taking the day off.

    Thank you, too, for what you do; it’s important.

    Prayers going up right now for your daughter’s fiance; I know he’ll get the job!

  39. fernleygirl says:

    SueK,

    Critters have been showing up in my life for over 40 years now (some literally showed up on my doorstep), and I’ve never turned one away. I take in the broken, ill, and dying. Heartache and joy, all rolled into one, but once they come home with me they are here until the end.

  40. jrCarolinas says:

    SueK – Whenever I was about to lose a pet, I would always take the day off as well from work when I worked (I am now retired). I have lost 3 dogs and 3 birds over the last couple of years and each one broke my heart. So to heal that pain, I go to rescue others that need love and care. Like Troy said, we are ALL animal lovers here on this blog. Thank you also for the prayers. I will be on my knees tonight because he is a good man and has gotten the short end of the stick for the last several years since he left Kansas as an EMT to come to NC to be with my daughter.

  41. cynkading says:

    Well, someone has been busy today….. :) I went to Sunday School, morning worship, out for lunch, a little siesta, back to church for evening services and I feel like I have been gone for a month. going to read the posts and will be back in a few……

  42. fernleygirl says:

    You are what you eat *ate* refered to GMO feed for cattle, chickens, etc. There’s lots of food out there that’s labeled in a way to mislead the consumer. I had posted two links about GMO’s prior. Corn-fed beef…not so good for us if the corn is GMO.
    I wouldn’t have be quoting, but what the quote meant was:
    Do you know what kind of feed was used for the meat you want to buy?

  43. jrCarolinas says:

    I read the other day an article, maybe it was one you posted Fernley, that now they are saying chickens and hamburger are the worst meats you can eat. Oh well, that seems to be all I can afford so I know that I am being affected by GMO’s. I am soooooooo glad summer is approaching so I can at least put up some veggies that I am growing and will be getting from the farm. Of course, all those seeds are probably GM’d as well.

  44. cynkading says:

    Judy, It will be my pleasure to pray for your future son-in-law. I too believe he will get this job.

  45. fernleygirl says:

    jr,
    There’s a rancher just 30 miles away from me that raises GMO, antibiotic and hGH-free beef. There are folks that create a buying club so they can buy a whole cow……..the cheapest way to buy. Maybe your fellow parishioners could do the same.

    You can find links to safe local food here:

  46. cynkading says:

    SueK, you are blessing to the fur babies that are in your care. Yes, you will be rewarded for your love for God’s animals.

  47. cabbyaz says:

    Jr,
    Prayers for your son-in-law re. job opening! God opens a way when there seems to be no way!

    SueK,
    So sad to hear about the situation with your dear hamster! She has had the time of her life under your loving care. Prayers for you, too, at this rough time of loss. It surely isn’t easy!

  48. SueK says:

    fernleygirl @ 8:03

    Yes, I seem to recall that from the days at CW’s. …and you’re right-they’re with us until the end.

    Those who come to my door who cannot come in (two feral cats, skunks, a very large raccoon, and a Virginia ‘possum) are tended to outside. My Mom always said ‘If it comes and it’s hungry, feed it!’ So, in her memory, I do!

    You’re right: Heartache and joy all rolled into one however, the joy is magnified because we helped them, no matter the outcome. It will always be that way!

  49. SueQ says:

    Sorry fernley,

    I have many of the same concerns that you do about GMO. I don’t like it! But it seems to me that it is akin to the early Christians wondering whether they were eating meat sacrificed to idols. They couldn’t be sure when they went to the marketplace what they were purchasing. God told them to just give thanks to Him and eat. That was all I meant

  50. cjzak says:

    Sue you are an angel. Those little creatures had a chance for love and a good home because of you. I never had the chance to have any pet but my wonderful doggies, but I can appreciate an animal lover all the time. I wish I could take more in but it isn’t something the rest of the people living in my house would be gung-ho about. In my heart I love all God’s creatures and am so glad He chose to put people like you and jr and Fernley and others here to help take care of the little abandoned orphans. Thank you.

  51. cjzak says:

    jr praying for your future son in law. I agree with Troy. I just have a good feeling about his chances. Sounds like he has been through alot.

  52. cjzak says:

    With the GMO foods I worry so much about my grandkids. I know my son tries to be careful what they eat, but when they go out to eat or go to others homes and school they will get some of this. Most people do not realize the dangers we may be facing. It is an unknown and we are the guinea pigs(sorry SueK) in this story. If people were aware how much gmos have infiltrated the food supply and boycott the stuff, then we might get a change. But as usual, the majority of the public is clueless and the msm doesn’t help either. I try to stay away from them as much as I can, but it is getting harder to do.

  53. SueK says:

    April 28, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Agreed, Judy; I will take Monday off. I always opt for a ‘final exam’ to make sure I’m making the right decision. As you know, it’s hard and never gets any easier.

    I’m pretty much at capacity critter-wise right now, and will hold off on another, at least for now. I only adopt those I can house *comfortably.*

    And your future son-in-law will dazzle ‘em; this will be a positive step towards a brighter future when he gets this job :).

  54. SueK says:

    Thank you, cyn and cj.

    As I said, this is a calling, of sorts, and it’s not something I consciously chose to do; it was just there!

    There are many out there who do the same thing; a lot of my friends run rescues and others network for shelters. The critter community here in the Northeast is very strong.

    When I retire, I plan to adopt either a pup or a cat, both of which I’m allergic to, but I don’t care. If I’m needed, I’m there.

    Thanks for your good thoughts. I’ll sign off for now and try to get some rest; Monday will be a bear.

    G’night, all.

  55. jrCarolinas says:

    Thank all of you so much for your encouraging words and prayers. I am going to believe that he will indeed get this job, I mean gee, how can he not with all your prayers :)

  56. cynkading says:

    All of the Franken food has had me concerned as well. (especially my children and grands) I just try to do the best that I can and let the Lord handle the rest. I believe it is going to come down to us relying on Him more and more as the govt. destroys the healthcare system for all. I did happen to listen to the Lindsey Williams vid up thread and I believe the total healthcare system will collapse. I told my husband on the way to church tonight that if planned parenthood are the ones calling the shots for us all and that is what Lindsey Williams stated. That they will be the ones making our health care decisions. Makes perfect sense. They are already in place. I will not allow them to call the shots on my healthcare decisions and I will just have to let God do the healing or if it is not his will than to die is gain. I will get to be with Him. I have not had health insurance since 1999. The Lord is good to me and I have certainly had some health challenges but he has seen me through. I rarely go to the doctor and when I do I pay in cash.

  57. jrCarolinas says:

    Fernley thanks for that link on the safe foods – I found a farm only 45 mins from me so I am going to check them out. Then maybe I can get a few folks to come together and we can purchase some in bulk. Thank You Thank You :)

  58. jrCarolinas says:

    Also, discovered on their website they deliver to New Bern at our local Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. So I just have to call in an order and they will deliver.

  59. jrCarolinas says:

    cynka – I am afraid before all is said and done under zerocare, none of us will have any health insurance because we won’t be able to afford it. The only way the IRS can collect on a penalty is if they owe you any money after you file taxes thereby taking it. So just change your W4 whereby they don’t owe you, but maybe pennies and then they are screwed and tattooed.

    Good Morning Everyone. Yesterday we had beautiful weather on Long Island and I had a fine day.

    Tom and I went to my cousin’s house, where he and his wife had a ‘Never Too Late For St. Patrick’s Day Party’. The invitation they sent was printed in Irish with an English translation. See I’m not the only nutty one in my family. They said that the weather was better in April than it was in March, but I think they were still getting adjusted to their new little boy who was born in October. Whatever the reason, the party was fun. Everyone wore green, there was Irish music, plenty of food – including home made Irish Soda Bread – and it was great spending the day with my cousins again.

    It was also great being away from the news for an entire day.

  63. Dora says:

    Thank you jr for your explanation of Polk salad (last thread). Once I started reading your definition, I remembered that in the beginning of the song, Elvis tried to tell the audience what it was. I found the lyrics, but I couldn’t find his performance on you tube.

    Polk Salad Anne Lyrics
    Some of you all never been down South too much…
    I’m gonna tell you a little story, so you’ll understand what I’m talking about
    Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods and the fields,
    and it looks something like a turnip green.
    Everybody calls it Polk salad. Now that’s Polk salad.
    Used to know a girl that lived down there and
    she’d go out in the evenings to pick a mess of it…
    Carry it home and cook it for supper, ’cause that’s about all they had to eat,
    But they did all right.

    Maybe one of his old shows which includes his performance will be on television. It is well worth watching. I miss Elvis.

  64. Dora says:

    jr – I just noticed your request. Add my prayers for your future son-in-law to all the others. With so many prayers going his way from the Heyokas, I am sure he will get this job.

    And thank you Dora and Budgy for the extra prayers.

    Hmmmm well that explosion in Prague may have been just an accident, but with Russia spilling the beans about the bombers who knows what someone did to really cause it. So many things are taking place around the entire world that are injuring and killing people in masses – always makes me suspicious especially in this day and age.

    I read on Fox that they now are giving food stamps for pets – about time is all I can say. Maybe it will help those owners who would otherwise put their pets out on the streets and let them fend for themselves.

    Wish I could get some help with pet food – mine eat me out of house and home. I ran out of kitty food yesterday so I ran to the Food Lion and was surprised that Friskies was on sale with my MVP card 10 cans for $4.50. Since I use only one can divided 4 ways for the kitties it will last 10 more days. Of course they are picky when it comes to Friskies and only like the Pate. For some reason they won’t eat the chunky stuff – except Soks of course and you all know he eats anything by his size. Poor baby fell off of his feeding table this morning and landed on his back. He’s OK but it sure scared him, me TOO.

We spent a week there every August in 1970, 71 and 72 and we’d attend as many performances as we could get reservations for. I believe I was at the performance in the video. I say that because I remember the outfit. Those 2 bottom chains on his shirt broke and were hanging down by the end of the concert because of his shaking around. Wow! What a show he put on. I have already watched the video 3 times. :-)

    Obama budget would order all workers not enrolled in a tax-deferred retirement account to get one.

    Requiring private citizens to engage in a specific form of commerce is a new and pernicious abuse of government power. Most conservatives understand the need for some – even as they try to limit it – government encroachments in the form of taxes, regulations of economic behavior, and dictates in the name of national security. But telling you what you must do, as opposed to providing limited controls on what you do so that you don’t harm others and even perhaps yourself, is a brave new world.

    SueK – all I can say is you’re going to have quite the reunion at Rainbow Bridge. Long distance hugs coming your way…

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    Gosnell Attorney Closes: No Evidence Babies Alive When Necks Snipped
    But defense attorney Jack McMahon said the babies Gosnell killed in an abortion process involving their live birth and eventual “snipping” of their necks and spinal cords were dead before they were actually born. He claimed any movement staffers saw after the fact was involuntary or reflexive and not an indication they were still alive after birth.

    Tokyo Evacuation…
    Submitted by pforth on April 29, 2013 – 2:28pm.

    I’ve read several blogs that state that Fukushima is worse than is publicly known, but today I got information from a source that has been speaking directly with high level Japanese officials about it. Apparently the problem is so bad that much of Tokyo, Japan and even parts of mainland China will have to be evacuated…and soon. The news is going to be suppressed for another 6 months, then everyone will know. I’m a little shaken up. It’s one thing reading an internet blog about this, but it’s altogether different when someone tells you this directly. Sure hope this is wrong… it makes gold and silver manipulation pale in comparison.

  103. SueK says:

    fernleygirl @ 5:58 PM

    Hi fernley,

    Not sure about Tokyo, but I can tell you that the event at Fukushima was a lot worse than what had been reported.

    I’m in the radiation game and as soon as we saw the names of isotopes that were coming out of those power plants, we knew we had either a partial or a full meltdown of the reactor cores happening. This was indeed the case, although TEPCO didn’t fess up until much later.

    We and other locations across the U.S. tracked the radiation plume coming across and yes, it did come; we were monitoring the air and water (and later, crops, soil, etc.) and getting hits on our instruments for isotopes we never see unless there’s an event. The levels were low enough so as to not cause any physical effects however, the radiation was there; I can gurantee that.

    Thanks for this info; I will keep posted on it through our sources and post anything of interest.

    Thank you (and thank you all) for your comments about my little one; she’s at rest in the garden now. She’ll always be with me. I will see her again.

  104. jrCarolinas says:

    Fernley, I would not be surprised at all if that were true. I personally believe that the US is also experiencing problems because of it as well.

  105. jrCarolinas says:

    Well I should have refreshed before I posted. SueK – even though the radiation levels were low, are they still lingering so to speak in the US?????? If so, what impact does constantly being exposed to them do over time??????

  106. SueK says:

    Hi Judy,

    Some linger, while some do not. It depends on what the ‘half life’ of the isotope is. This is the time it takes for one half of the concentration to decay. Iodine-131 has a half life of just 8 days, so it leaves quickly. It is a product of nuclear fission and we saw a lot of it in the first few weeks following Fukushima.

    Strontium-90, on the other hand, has a half life of 28.8 years, and Plutonium-239 has a half life of 24,110 years.

    From our monitoring since Fukushima, we’re not finding anything out of the ordinary that would cause concern. Everyone talks about Potassium-40 (K-40), which is everywhere on the planet; we live with it, just as we live with a ton of bacteria every day. Ever enjoy a banana? There’s your K-40 right there; its half life is 1.26 *billion* years, so it’s always been around and will continue to be around. This is not harmful to us however, a banana will set off a Geiger-Mueller counter to the amazement of anyone watching.

    So, go ahead and eat your banana :)

  107. Katie says:

    SueK – I guess we could call those “high capacity bananas”. Congress needs to make a law that requires background checks to buy bananas. /sarc

    Good Morning All. I’ve become very disappointed in Gov. Christie. I don’t even know why I once admired him so much. I guess I liked the way he talked back to the reporters. My favorable impression of him changed completely during Hurricane Sandy when he was appearing all over television with obama. I thought he was buttering up to barry because he needed federal funds for New Jersey. But that was six months ago. Yesterday he was doing interviews again claiming that obama ‘has kept every promise he’s made” about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy. Now that’s ridiculous. Other than a few photo-ops, barry didn’t do anything at all to help the state.

    People say that Christie needs democrat voters in order to get reelected in November. He may get them, but he has lost his self-respect.

    Then I see the exchange between Cabby and Katie on CO and thought just how many more states are going to follow in those footsteps. We are living in a world that is following satan and turning away from God. Beware – God WILL pour out his wrath upon America. We are beginning to see the falling away take place and the next thing on the agenda is for the man of lawlessness to be revealed – for that day (the day of the Lord) shall not come, except there come a falling away first. The only thing is we don’t know the timetable. It could be soon or still years away.

It is already creaking open.

    Morning all! I cannot believe anyone in the public, other than gays, gives a flying fig that any athletes reveal they are gay. Only the drool mouth media cares led by gayland, self righteous Hollywood and all the pc libs.

    I would so love to see an athlete publicize, with great media fanfare at a press conference, the declaration that he/she is ‘coming out’ and telling the world he/she is HETEROSEXUAL. Wow, now that would be newsworthy. It would be a farce, but a deserved one, dished out to the media clowns.

    That’s what I feel about the whole gay thing—a farce. I don’t care what you do for sex as long as you are not harming anyone and have a consenting adult with you if you partner up. I think gayness is a perversion and a sin, and also an excuse to hide behind for some people to make perverted sex normal or ok. But I am not the keeper of others’ souls. They will answer to God and his judgement will be the only one that counts. In the meantime–I don’t care or want to know and I know alot of people who feel the exact same way.

    I agree this is a media deflection from the real world and problems that actually matter. Also, this very mediocre athlete gets his 15 minutes of fame that he can’t achieve with his limited professional basketball skills. Bunch of junk news.

    Shampoo Warning! I don’t know WHY I didn’t figure this out sooner! I use shampoo in the shower! When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning, “FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME.”
    No wonder I have been gaining weight! Well! I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn Dishwashing Soap. It’s label reads, “DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE.”

    This strategy of buying commodities at lower prices today to consume at higher prices tomorrow can be implemented on a micro-economic personal scale in your own home. Doing so, especially with health and nutrition considerations, will not only provide you with long-term cost savings as global currencies continue to lose purchasing power, but insulate you against the possibility of a rush for food in the event of an emergency or widespread economic instability.

    Whether you choose to stock your long-term food pantry by going to a grocery store, grow your own food in your traditional or aquaponics garden, learn to preserve it yourself, or prefer to do your own food storage packing, the key is to develop a plan and implement it now.

    The US dollar isn’t getting any stronger over the next 10 years.

    But the rice, beans, wheat, and pasta you stockpile will still have the same exact intrinsic value a decade from now as they do today.

    Willie Nelson, Who Saved His Career And His House With The IRS Tapes, Turns 80

    Today – or maybe tomorrow, depending on who you ask – is the 80th birthday of country music legend Willie Nelson (he says today but his birth certificate says tomorrow). He’s been making music since 1956 and his songs are so ubiquitous that even folks who don’t like country music can name a few. And in small towns across America, it’s impossible to walk into any bar and not hear at least one version of Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.

    All together, Nelson has recorded more than sixty studio albums, ten live albums, thirty-seven compilations, two movie soundtracks and twenty-seven collaborations. And while he has l

    Rush Limbaugh’s show today was really funny. He went off on that whole gay sports figure thing. I was laughing the whole time at his sarcastic statements. Said the NFL got ‘one-upped’by the NBA. He said what I said above. Who cares what someone’s sexual orientation is. Said he grew up in a household where the subject of sexual preferences never was discussed. Was a private matter. Said why aren’t we calling Billy Clinton out about his sexual preferences– like WH interns? We were told pres. Clinton’s sex exploits were a private matter and shouldn’t be discussed in public. But now why shouldn’t we discuss it all over the media? It went on and on and was hysterical.

    People were talking about it at work and all of them thought it was ridiculous to even be in the news and all over the place. They don’t care and don’t want to hear or read about it. I would imagine a lot of people feel the same way and I hope the media is getting that message loud and clear on their email boards, Facebook and twitter sites.

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and injured hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document.
    The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.

He said he’s confident he’s a natural born citizen even though he was born in Canada. He cites the fact his mother was a US citizen at the time so that makes him a NBC. Wow. A conservative who is willing to make that statement just blows my mind. The Dems have a choice to make on this one. If they cry foul, they have the Obama issue staring them in the face. My guess is they will be confident in Hillary winning so they won’t say a thing except be my guest Ted, and run. If it looks like he might win, the dems will pull something but I don’t think it will be the eligibility issue. The precedent has been set by Obama and the Congress has effectively changed the Constitution without amending it the right way. Pigs, all of them.
