    My past church was a member of The United Church of Christ denomination. As a board member of the church, back in the 90′s I was assigned to attend the Ohio conference of the U.C.C.

    The UCC by the way is the denomination that Obama belong to and the Church where Rev. Wright was quoted as saying “America should F off” as well anti-US sermons.

    When I attended the state conference, I was shocked at the liberal left political; organizations and the support the UCC was giving to such organizations. At the conference lectures, it was noted that if we had a conservative leaning church, “It would be best not to report what the UCC was doing to your congregations so as not not cause conflict”. Being conservative and quite upset about what they were doing, sponsoring and pushing, I went back with pictures, pamphlets, paperwork and notes showing what was happening to the denomination.
    That year was the year the UCC pushed hard to become the denomination representing homosexual rights and in fact the UCC is now considered to be one of the largest such membership church denominations in America.

    Our church as well many other dropped out ( was a battle to do so with the denomination for most churches) and we became a nondenominational congregational church.

    The UCC went on to hold several political rallies during Obama’s campaign and if ANY denomination should be targeted, the UCC BY FAR pushed those political lines but the media won’t mention it. Funny how that works.

    There is a point where professionalism must be shown by the policeman and McCloud did not. He lost control of himself and there is no excuse for that.

    With most peace loving people, “Bless You” is a defusing statement to be taken with gratitude, not to heighten a bad situation. McCloud’s attitude shows just how bad of a person he was on that particular day. A “Thank You”, not a rant or silence at worst should have been the officer’s response.

    Police day in day out have to work with the worst of society, they have terrible work hours, have to deal with a terrible bureaucracy, and usually terrible pay. You work for a few decades like that and see how it affects you, you need to give policemen a break sometimes. As Christians, understand that perspective and be forgiving if that was the case with the motorcyclist pulled over.

    God Bless you Officer McCloud, may you find peace in a chaotic world.

    On a side note Officer McCloud, in dealing with the public, I find being nice in a bad situation is the best tactic. The worse people get with me, the nicer I get. Sickly nice with the worst of people. They cannot complain that you are “too nice” and most times it calms the situation down. Although one time in dealing with customers, I had a person complain I was too nice to them and my boss laughed at them. Try it sometime, hopefully it will cheer you up or at least lower the blood pressure.

    I speak for everyone that understands life. Fight to keep going.

  • [5] October 29, 2014 at 6:46pm

    Or because you don’t understand something, you discount the miracles that do happen.

    Faith is an interesting concept, that you can believe in something without the facts or full knowledge. We could be wiped out in an instant by accident, by a natural disaster or other threats. But we assume the sun will rise, that life goes on, and many know that life truly is a gift. That we are blessed to experience such and have the opportunity to grow every minute even when things are not going our way.

    Philip Johnson understands that, knows that in the midst of hardship, there are good that he can take away still in life. And that bad things happen, we cannot changer, but what we choose to reflect upon. Positive or negative, how we choose affects how you live and perceive the rest of your life.

    I am sorry Brittany Maynard does not understand that. Because if she did focus on the best of life, she would find it still outshines the rest of the darkness of life, if she had the courage to do so.

    We are not here to survive life, but to experience, to learn, to grow, to live it to it’s fullest. Everything Brittany took in these last few weeks is a waste because she could continue to experience what she just did, but has chosen to throw those chances away and focus on the negative.

    Hats off to Philip, he understands the value of life, has the wisdom to focus on the positive and truly live life.

    The astronauts have extra supplies on board as well there is a second launch scheduled next week from the Russians. As long as that launch goes well, there is no short term worries. There are always backups due to the nature and risk of space launches.

    Looked like a second after launch the rocket stalled and then started progress again. You could also see debris shooting away before the flame extended out from the engines. My guess is that the engine ingested a part and then failed. The speed for those fuel pumps are incredible, if something goes wrong, it happens quickly.
    A shame the launch was stalled on Monday due to the government not properly notifying boaters of the launch. That delay may have allowed for a cascading problem to develop between then and the launch.
    As long as the Russian supply launch is successful next week, this should not impose any serious problems for the crew on the international space station.

    The American people have allowed the left to take power and turn this nation away from God. That fault lies in those who could have stopped this, from those in the pulpit to the citizen in the street. What is happening now is symptomatic of the apathy that has taken over this nation.

    The next two years will be the most dangerous, for both the world and the United States. With immigration, the economy, the military and foreign relations as well the international side with our enemies and theological threats about to go from a threat to actual implementation.

    Obama is a tool and messenger for what is about to come. The question is, when will people truly open their eyes for only a few are not fooled.

    This administration has admitted stalled Israel purposefully to the point they feel Israel is not helpless to stop the inevitable push by their enemies towards destruction. Israel has hoped beyond hope the world would wake up but as predicted, they will stand alone.

    After the mid term elections are over, you REALLY shall see just how evil this administration is. At that point, there is almost nothing to hold back Obama. If those who care for the original values of this nation to not take a stand, truly a day of judgement shall be upon this world sooner than anyone will expect.

    Hate to burst your bubble, but you better start reading what is really going on in the middle east. Check out http://www.shoebat.com and as for the current Turkish politics:
    http://shoebat.com/2014/10/24/rift-antichrist-nation-turkey-west-be
    Hmm… ISIS outsourcing to Turkish gangs:
    http://shoebat.com/2014/10/23/isis-outsourcing-dirty-deeds-turkish-gangs-raises-new-security-concern-u-s-military-personnel/
    Hey, whats happening here, Turkey bombs Kurds, not ISIS…
    http://shoebat.com/2014/10/14/turkey-bombing-kurds-instead-isis/
    Hmm, seems Turkey does not want to go after ISIS here:
    http://shoebat.com/2014/10/09/predicted-turkey-will-put-boot-ground-go-isis/

    The Obama admin has been isolationist after knocking out neutral dictators which is why the middle east is so unstable now. Leaving it alone now will only make matters worse as the power base has shifted to radical Islam.
    While your more peaceful minded friends there want peace, it is the radicals with guns who are changing the scope of the middle east.

    More over, the leadership there feel that they are fighting than more for just a caliphate, but to bring on the end times:
    http://news.yahoo.com/apocalyptic-prophecies-drive-both-sides-syrian-battle-end-142641298.html;_ylt=AwrTWfwc7TpTWXgAjanQtDMD

    This is not a small matter to ignore. This is a fight for the future of both the middle east and the direction the world takes. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

    I don’t think he is lying and frankly, it is the smart thing for ISIS to take a western media announcer hostage and use him like this. The Whitehouse administration has lied through their teeth domestically and with the international news as well. ISIS frankly with reporters like this has more credibility than the Obama administration.

    As well the news he is reporting is credible as Turkey has been a strong ISIS supporter and has strongly turned Islamist extremist, which is giving the west fits as they were in the past a western negotiator for the west as well a NATO Allie.

    Finally, the Obama administration has done everything to play both sides of this as Obama hates Israel and has several internal puppet masters who are Islamist as well Obama’s own Islamic past. He has to play the role of the leader of the western world (albeit a weak one at best) while at the same time doing everything he can to bolster the Islamic state. Arab Spring has replaced neutral governments with extreme ones, Obama continues to back stab the Israeli government, he has continues to run the US economy and military into the ground and has mounted an in effective attack on these Islamist.

    Frankly, could have not been better done if he was directed by the devil…

    So, now with the tide turning for the Caliphate and ISIS and Turkey, and Obama purposeful sabotaging the US anyway he can and stalling the west, you will really begin to see the reality of what all these events bring.

    Spoken like a true communist.

    Amazing the uncomfortable laugh by the audience. They know it to be false but if you don’t trow the fascist line, then you will be killed by the fascist. They have committed their loyalty to the progressive socialist party.

    Oh and Hillary, capitalism has failed as of late due to the interference by government with all the progressive socialist laws sabotaging it. Capitalism was most successful when government did not interfere, history as proven that to be absolutely true.

    A coincidental article, I have my Honda 2003 Odyssey in the shop today for an airbag recall as well the ignition switch. Go figure. Nice to know it was a good idea not to ignore the recall.

    Could be texting, a sleepy driver, drunk or even low / high blood sugar effecting the driver. Hard to say without knowing all the facts.
    Best thing that could be done when you see something like this is to beep the horn to try to alert the driver in front as well other drivers and have your passenger call 911. There may have not been enough time in that rural area, but it would be well worth the effort for potentially saving lives.

    @LibertarianSocialist
    I suggest you look up the great awakening, I will even provide you a basic link to get started:
    http://www.great-awakening.com/?page_id=22
    Real historians, not the false talking point types, know that this country is founded on Christian values and that the [prosecution seen in Europe absolutely influenced the mindset and formation of this country. To deny otherwise is to flatly not know or understand the history of this nation.
    Those that deny the influence an 15,00 quotes, here is another site that looks at those documents, references and the founders own words:
    http://www.heritageofthefoundingfathers.com/
    Who were the founders, lets take a good look at their backgrounds and what influenced them:
    http://www.adherents.com/gov/Founding_Fathers_Religion.html

    You are correct, a large of modern collegiate historians do present the founders as deist, non believers and try to impose modern liberal values falsify in order to convince the ignorant their own agendas are valid. Any person who actually looks at those documents immediately can see such falsehoods and how liberal talking points have no founding.

    I suggest if you want to know what the founders were thinking, you should read THEIR original works and words, not modern academics trying to impose their own points of view.

  • [5] October 20, 2014 at 3:24pm

    Absolutely false. Kings law was seen by Kings as ‘God’s” law but religions throughout Europe where noting that the morals and ethics of the Bible, God’s laws, trumped Kings law. there was a huge movement in the 50 years preceding the US revolution were such preaching in the churches lead to the revolutionaries mentality.
    The book, “Forged in Faith” by Rod Cragg, discusses in depth this history that is trying to be rewritten by socialist progressives to falsely argue as you do the foundational values of our founders and this country. In fact, the bible is quoted in over 15,000 founding fathers notes in regards to the Christian values and how they were incorporated into the founding documents. Our civil rights have everything to do with the values of Christianity and diving belief. To say otherwise is to deny the very documents that note such, are written with reference, the founding fathers own documents, inscription on building and monuments, etc. Your attempt to argue otherwise is to try to rewrite history, a normal liberal socialist tactic. To dribble out false soundbites in hopes eventually what you say will stick with enough ignorant people.

  • [12] October 20, 2014 at 2:52pm

    The amendments of the constitution were placed in order of importance, the first being the freedom of speech and religion. During the revolutionary war, pastors were so influential that the King of England named them the Black Robe Regiment. The push for God’s law over Kings law in churches in the colonies lead to the push for revolution. That is a key issue that brought people to the colonies in the first place.
    The second most important amendment was the freedom of having arms to stand up to tyrants should they arise in the US. There is no debate about this, our founding father noted that government always tries to usurp rights and they emphasized rights as God given. Madison thought that there would be an uprising about every 25 years due to government trying to stray away from the constitution. The right to bear arms was directly tied to the ability to defend ones self from an over oppressive government.

    Our founders realized just how precious those freedoms were and were willing to fight for them. Today, our society has forgotten how important those freedoms are as well exactly why our founders wrote the foundation of our rights and freedoms as they had. If Americans are unwilling to stand up for what is happening now, they will loose the very fabric of what gives us the freedom and ability to make this nation so great and to live with liberty and the pursuit of happiness. God given rights will soon become limited government privileges.

    Obama has done more to destabilize the world than any other president. He has purposefully destabilized the middle east, taking neutral countries and replacing the leadership with extremist. He funded Arab Spring, has run arms resulting in the death of Ambassador Stevens, has sabotaged elections in Israel, has held back funds from Israel, currently holding back arms from Israel while funding the terrorist attacking them and politically supporting those who want to destroy Israel.
    He has decimated the US military, has destroyed the Us economy and has brought the debt so high that it will take decades to recover. He has lied about transparency, Benghazi, the IRS, Immigration, the CDC with immigration and now, the NSA, Gun Running, the EPA and continues to abuse the executive branch.
    Either he is the most incompetent or the most evil person and given he has outlined in his book that he wanted to take America down and that if it came down to Islam over the west he chose Islam, I believe him to be a traitor to this nation.
    This is just part of Obama’s grand plan.
    But the citizens re-elected him despite all that he has done, chose this dishonest manipulative proven politician over a just and good person and those values have repercussions.
    IF Ebola does decimate the US, the heavy population centers will see the worse and those people are the ones that brought this evil to power. Justice will reign, judgement will be rendered at at the harbinger is to be confirmed.

    The founders of our country, the people that fled from Europe, did so to escape this exact persecution. Our founding fathers specifically wrote that the government could not do this. They debated this in the Federalist papers to make it absolutely clear that the US government could never do this.

    The Supreme Courts political activist separation of state finding is flatly political and not constitutional. As noted by the founders, when this happens, there comes a time when the people must stand up to the government. It happened in 1776, it can happen again if our government is not willing to follow their own foundational laws. In fact, it was called for by the founders should this happen again.

    People need to kick out the current politicians who are not willing to correct this either by votes or by other means if necessary. In the mean time, I would tell the Mayor of Houston to take a hike to some other socialist country.

    Jesus noted that eventually, our faith would bring brother against brother and that a house divided would not stand. Given all that is happening, maybe the time is getting close for a revelation of some type.

    The new CDC, treat one Ebola patient, two more take it’s place.
