Harvest Prayer

Posted in Religion, Society on November 25th, 2009

In America it is time for Thanksgiving, a holiday that Americans celebrate every autumn. While its celebration is pervasive among Americans, it is often an almost reflexive habit. Much of the underlying meaning has been lost as our technologies and skills have increased and brought with them much greater security.

Thanksgiving was a Harvest Festival. Few, if any, in the Civilized World can truly understand the visceral significance of that fact – though many of the rest of the People’s of the Earth certainly still can.

Harvest Prayer

The crops have been harvested;
The herbs have been dried;
The game and the herds have been salted;
We will survive.

We give thanks to the Mother
Who has shared of her bounty.
We are grateful for her teachings and her fruit.
We will survive.

We give thanks to the Father
Who has shared of his flesh.
We are grateful for his teachings and his blood.
We will survive.

Grateful are we who face the Winter.
Through the gifts of the Mother and Father
We are prepared for the cold season.
We will survive and we are grateful.

~*~

We will survive! In agrarian societies who are isolated from trade the fall harvest was – and still often is – the difference between Life and Death, not just for individuals but for whole communities. Is it any wonder that the harvest was a holiday – a Holy Day – of joy, relief, and thanksgiving?

We Americans are secure and wealthy and Thursday’s feast will be rich and sweet on our tongues – but how much sweeter was that first Thanksgiving feast when the Pilgrims knew it meant that they could live through Winter and see the coming of Spring?

The General Welfare

Posted in Politics on November 23rd, 2009

When dealing with the Liberals who willfully misuse and misinterpret the US Constitution to further their aims to replace America with a nation built upon their ideology of government mandated and controlled non-merit based equality of result it is useful to refer to what our Founding Father’s actually meant.

With respect to the two words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.

“Father of the Constitution,” James Madison

Now, in truth, the Nanny-Statists of the Left care very little for Madison or his thoughts, but Americans do. Referring back to the words, wisdom, and thoughts of the “Father of the Constitution” is always prudent when Liberals foul our Constitution by daring to cite it as an excuse for their beliefs and goals.

Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after theyre down. 😉

Obama Trying Bush

Posted in Humor, Politics on November 23rd, 2009

There is often both truth and wisdom to be found in humor. Both are found in full measure in Glenn McCoy’s cartoon about the reasons that President Obama and his lackey, Attorney General Eric Holder want to enact the dangerous travesty of trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his subhuman, Islamist ilk in civilian courts.

Obama: So We Can Finally Bring George Bush To Justice - Glenn McCoy
…So We Can Finally Bring George Bush To Justice

But hey! What can else can one expect from President Obama and his coterie? The boy got himself elected as the POTUS by running a successful Presidential campaign against the “lame duck” incumbent, President George Bush, Jr. – and he has blamed every one of his many failures and pathetic inadequacies upon the man since then. This is just Obama’s next logical step. 😉

Graham Schools Holder

Posted in Politics on November 20th, 2009

I don’t always wholeheartedly agree with Sen. Lindsey Graham’s position, nor do I always agree with how he goes about speaking to those positions and against those of the opposition; he is often overly vitriolic, hyperbolic, and antagonistic. Sometimes though, it’s a true joy to watch him cut loose on some poor, deluded fool who has no knowledge or understanding of the matters at hand.

His teaching remedial law and civil rights under that law to Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder is one of those times.


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) Teaches Law To A. G. Eric Holder

Sen. Graham spells it out in small words – ones that even Obama’s boy, Holder should be able to understand – what the problem is with President Obama – through Holder – trying terrorists like the vermin, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in a American civilian court of law.

If were going to use federal court as a disposition for terrorists, you take everything that comes with being in federal court. And what comes with being in federal court is that the rules in this country, unlike military law, you can have military operations, you can interrogate somebody for military intelligence purposes and the law enforcement rights do not attach. But under domestic criminal law, the moment the person is in the hands of the United States Government, theyre entitled to be told they have a right to a lawyer and can remain silent.

— Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing

It is a great shame that neither President Obama nor Attorney General Holder seem capable of understanding those simple, American truths. One way or another and no matter how the travesty of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s trial turns out, the harm these two will likely wreak upon America, if they are not stopped, is staggering.

The Baby Killer Lies

Posted in Politics on November 15th, 2009

Kronos devouls his own children. It's quite reminiscent of Obama's views on children and abortionWhite House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said that President Obama will “intervene” to ensure that the Stupak Amendment is stripped from any Health Insurance Reconstruction bill that makes it through Congress.

This is, of course, completely to be expected. President Obama is and has always been a fervent, passionate, and staunch proponent of elective on-demand abortions for any and all reasons or excuses.

Straight from Obama’s mouthpiece at the White House:

White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod suggested Sunday that President Obama will intervene to make sure a controversial amendment restricting federal funding for abortion coverage is stripped from final health care reform legislation.

In doing so, the president would be heeding the call of abortion rights supporters like Planned Parenthood that have called the White House their “strongest weapon” in keeping such restrictions out of the bill.

Obama has always maintained a 100% NARAL rating and pioneered legislation to ensure that even children who somehow survived being aborted would be murderedeven if it meant leaving them to die on shelves in a utility room or tossing into the trash bin while they were still alive.

You know, I laid out a very simple principle, which is this is a health care bill, not an abortion bill. And we’re not looking to change what is the principle that has been in place for a very long time, which is federal dollars are not used to subsidize abortions. And I want to make sure that the provision that emerges meets that test — that we are not in some way sneaking in funding for abortions, but, on the other hand, that we’re not restricting women’s insurance choices, because one of the pledges I made in that same speech was to say that if you’re happy and satisfied with the insurance that you have, that it’s not going to change.

— President Obama
ABC News Interview, Nov. 9, 2009

This was a good a valid sounding statement from President Barack “The Baby Killer” Obama. It eloquently and succinctly summed up the quandary facing both the Legislative and Executive branches of America’s federal government. Unsurprisingly it didn’t take long for this particular POTUS to turn it into just another of his lies concerning healthcare “reform” and abortion / infanticide.

Go ahead and look, Liberals! It’s what you condone and endorse. They’re not people after all…

With the Stupak Amendment attached to it, ObamaCare is not an “abortion bill” and the status quo regarding the federal government spending American’s tax dollars to subsidize abortion / infanticide is maintained. Without the Stupak Amendment ObamaCare is very much an abortion / infanticide bill since any federal subsidy or “affordability credit” given to an insurance plan that covers abortions is both a violation of the Hyde Amendment and a decided change in the status quo.

The only significant difference between President Obama and “Dr.” George “Baby Killer” Tiller, aside from Obama still having a pulse, is that Obama has never performed an abortion with his own hands.

No; this doesn’t mean anyone should execute Obama. While I can understand the desire to do so in order to save America’s children, it would serve no valid pragmatic purpose. He, like President Kennedy, would be made a martyr and his agenda, most likely en total, would be made into law.

Remember that only the Liberals have anything to gain from Obama’s assassination and then only if they can either setup an American to do it or frame one for it.

Americans must fight against President Obama’s “intervention.” Any and all means that offer some hope of success must be used to ensure that whatever health insurance takeover bill that reaches President Obama’s desk includes the Stupak Amendment or another amendment that serves the same legal purpose.

We may fail in this endeavor; the odds are certainly not in America’s children’s favor. But, if we do not fight against this with our property, our effort, and – if needs be and the Devils will out – our flesh, then we are just as culpable for those children’s murders as the creatures who scald them with caustics or cut them apart while they’re still alive.
