    I live in Oregon & love the state. But most of Oregon is conservative (land-wise, taxpayer-wise), there are just not enough of us OR we are busy working hard making a living to be protesting. Blame Portland, Bend, & Eugene as they are the population centers. Many Californians have immigrated here making Oregon (once a very red state) into the new California. People with too much time on their hands that should go get a real job. They basically dictates what happens in this state. Way too much graft & corruption. They high unemployment, way too many welfare recipients, too many able bodied people receiving everyone else’s $$$$.
    PS – Believe it or not “Occupy Portland” is still happening. These people need to get a life and get a job.

    Oooooo, was he mad. He spent more time, emotion, & energy on his speech full of lies about the flopped gun control bill than he did speaking about the murders & the 30 some Americans that were left for dead in Bengahzi, the Fort Hood shooting, & the Boston Marathon bombing, just to name a few. (Figured that the O wouldn’t talk about the baby-murderer Gosnell. O supports late-term abortions.) You can see where his passions lies. The passion for stripping the American people of their rights to keep & bear arms.
    PS – We still haven’t seen nor heard from the 30+ people that were left to be killed in Bengahzi.

    Add to the funny & strange list…armadillos.
    Echidnas are too cute, but I’ll bet they aren’t very cuddly :)

    Cesium, No, I have not studied “a nanosecond of study in the highly” tractable molecular” changes that occur during evolution.” But when that day comes when we stand before Almighty God the Creator, you can tell Him about it. I’m don’t think He will be at all impressed by your knowledge. I’m sorry. I hope that someday soon you can appreciate creation the way it is meant to be appreciated.

    And no, I don’t think that all scientists are evil & trying to destroy religion. I happen to have an uncle who is an esteemed physicist & he marvels at the complexities of the LORD’s creation. It excites him to see the vast intricacies of God’s hand at work & I love discussing physics & quantum physics with him.

    We are under the judgment of abandonment by God. So why are we so shocked at all of this? We’ve seen this coming. We’ve heard this coming. Our nation “voted” for this.(I would even venture to say that this election was our last chance.So now all of this crap is coming quickly to the surface.)
    * We have “replaced” God as the Creator. Read Romans 1:18-23 for the WHY (teaching evolution, Big Bang, etc as the Creator). Read Romans 1:24-32 for the HOW we know.
    * Now the question is, “How do we get back or can we even get back? Has the LORD God of Hosts left us forever?”
    * We need to get back to our LORD & a life that follows Him. I, for one, must repent of this & ask His forgiveness. I am thanking Him for His forgiveness by the blood of Yeshua because I have strayed away from Him. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. But fools despise wisdom & instruction.” (Prov.1:7).

    More evidence for GOD the Creator wondrous design!!! Just look at the above video! What a spectacular design is the cheetah. Alternative “theories” just can’t hold a candle when they say that there is any “randomness” – Goo to zoo to you. Let’s make it easy. See how many times it would take to throw a handful of toothpicks on the table until they would form a cube – no life nor breath nor intelligence to a wooden cube. It would never happen!

    The LORD is very jealous of His undeniable role as Creator. Read Romans 1:20-25 to find out why God is judging us with His abandonment. If you want to know what are the results of His abandonment then continue to read through vs. 31.

    I understand completely. I worked in the public school system for more than 10 years & saw the same abuse of the system. And the students laughed about it. Absolutely no shame for living off of someone else, and all the while being horribly disrespectful as they text away on their IPhones.

    One student I worked with told me that when she turned 18 her father was going to help her apply for SS disability because she had a learning disability (dad is on disability, too). I told her that she was not disabled & she was more than able to get & hold a job. She looked at me like I had 3 eyeballs.

  • November 28, 2012 at 8:58pm

    Sorry, I didn’t process the return for the student, it was the student’s parents. Oops :)

    I totally agree with the charts presented. I know for a fact that the situation given of the single mom (or a married couple making the same $$$) is true. I prepared federal, state & local income taxes for more than 10 years in PA & saw the incredible abuse of the earned income tax credit & the welfare system as a whole. People would come in making $25000-30000 @ year with 3 kids & get a $10000+ refund check. They would ALWAYS ask me if I knew what the “top of the curve” would be for the next year. They would purposely take a lay-off or get fired just before they hit the “top of the earned income credit curve” & tell me about it, all the while smiling & laughing about bilking the system. (I no longer do taxes because it just became too stressful for me & I began having some very unChristian feelings.)

    One example of abuse – I personally processed a tax return for a student with whom I worked. She wore crap for clothing, was unkempt, & was given a winter coat & school supplies through our faculty fund, etc. Her parents came in & picked up their refund check of $11000+ & off they went to WalMart. When I saw the student the following Monday she was so excited because they had gotten a big, flat screen TV. She still had on the crap clothing. Very sad.

    One thing that the charts failed to include are the free lunches & summer lunch program involvement.

    God help us :(

    I, for one, would love to have Glenn come to my house & sign books & eat ice cream if he wanted to. The door would be wide open.

    Glenn is the person to whom I owe my political wake-up call. My DH & I started watching him on Fox at 5 PM soon after his show first started & followed to the end. And if we weren’t home it was DVR’d. He & I both are now wide awake & active in our pursuit of liberty, freedom, & love of country.

    We spend time researching information, reading thought provoking books like Atlas Shrugged, Road to Serfdom, etc, discussing our country & concerns with family & friends, being more open to involvement, & more vocal in our beliefs. Just being armed with knowledge of our present situation has allowed me to share Jesus Christ & my faith in Him with many other people.

    So with hearts full of love & eyes wide open, we advance onward :)

    Well Bava, apparently you are not here to learn anything or to expand your limited leftist views. One of your not-to-distant remarks was…”You’re getting off the grid by posting here and paying for the internet service to do so? I think I know why you idiots lost. You have one brain between the lot of you and this wasn’t your week to use it.” Sound familiar?
    If you really wanted to learn anything about how conservative think then you should read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, & the Gettysburg Address just for starters.
    Once you do that then come back & talk with us.

    Looks like an upscale, modern dollhouse. Not for me at all. I can not imagine not having space to move around, let alone both people working & living in the same 550 sq ft all the time. I’d go bonkers.
    I can’t even imagine how much $$$ they paid for just the hardware. A cheapie euro hinge ~$3.60@.
    And the furniture looks about as comfy as sitting on concrete blocks covered with foam rubber & fabric. No thanks.
    I’m very happy in my +1600 sq ft house on a 1/2 acre that has a water supply, big veggie garden & chickens. Can’t beat that.

    Ever since I read this earlier today, I have been mournfully contemplating what awaits us now as a nation. Then I find out that there is a book by a so-called professor – “The Gospel According to Apostle __can’t say it___”.

    I truly believe that the LORD gave us one last chance on November 6th. The “nation” chose an obviously a very dark (not skin color, content of character), charismatic, messianic-like person over a person who exemplified honor, love of God, family & country, charity, duty, hard work, etc. Our “leaders” have now backed this person by their inaction at the fraud of the election or collapsing on solid, Biblical principles.

    I hate to say it everyone, but I truly believe that we better be praying & getting ready for a ride that we don’t want to take because the S is about to really HTF!!!! Study the Scriptures, get close to the LORD, hide under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91 is very uplifting).

  • November 26, 2012 at 5:05pm

    I am speechless. I don’t know what to say. PRAY!!!
    This is very bad!!! Even if it was supposed to be /sarc, there is nothing funny about this. It is outright blasphemy & blasphemy is NEVER a joke even if it is delivered as such. “…For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” (Lu 6:45)
    No doubt that we are very close now. LORD, please help us now :(
    PS – @auntiecare – no, Foxx did not say FOR, he said just what it says. I listened to it repeatedly. You need to listen to it again.

    “fire broke out during routine maintenance to a mechanical area of the building, though did not give any details”….Hmmmm. Why were people doing “routine maintenance” during a holiday weekend? Burning in the duct work? Why were there combustibles in the duct work? Duct work does not just catch on fire. So that’s where the records were hidden. Hmmmm.
    Nothing to look at here, folks. Move along now.

    OMG, I didn’t even notice that. I have no idea what the heck that is. But yeap, that looks like a floating arm. The accident was real. And I would have been on Rt. 217 just about 4 PM, but changed my mind & decided to stay in. Whew!!! Missed that one.

  • November 25, 2012 at 6:45pm

    Totally agree with the lack of shame in our society today. And the parents who are calling their daughter’s behavior into account are being criticized.

  • November 25, 2012 at 6:35pm

    Public humiliation (admitting WHAT you have done wrong in front of others) may be the key to break this young woman wide open again to a full life instead of self-destructive behavior. I hope that her parents are praying people. Prayer is the only thing that will keep them sane & keep her safe.

    I once read a story of a funeral director who had to stand in front of a cemetery every day for 2 weeks wearing a sandwich sign saying that he stole from mourning families. That was his sentence. When he was asked he said that he would have rather gone to jail for 2 weeks than to have to be publicly humiliated.

    One thing I learned was one of the hardest things to get a child to do is to get them to admit WHAT they did wrong. When you tell them to apologize you usually get an insincere “Sorry”. I always told my children that their apology was unacceptable until they could say WHAT they were sorry for. Just getting the admission is a big part of the battle. It brings the wrongful behavior into the light.

    I remember once being asked why I insisted that my children attend church, and that it should be the child’s choice whether to believe in God or not. I proceeded to ask them, “How can my child make an informed choice if never presented with information about the LORD? They needed to hear both sides, not just the one of atheists.” That shut them up quickly. Hee-hee :)

    If someone doesn’t want their child to attend then excuse the child from school. Why should anyone IMPOSE their beliefs on me? Apparently this person has too much time on their hands & just wants to cause problems. Very SELFISH of them.

    Nope, this was the real deal. I was almost in that gridlock on Rt. 217, but decided to stay in. Thank you LORD for changing my mind. I went under that overpass today & yeap, it’s in need of repair.
