Last week the net roots far lefties had their big hoe down in Vegas.
This week the even farther left are having an even bigger shindig in my backyard.
With 25 various so called peace groups coming to Albany NY, it reminded me of how I got sucked in to the anti-war movement back in 07 .
Last September I did a post about my time with the Communists.
And with so many of them in town it’s time to once again come clean and call them out for what they really are.
Yes, it’s true.
I used to hang with Communists.
But don’t stone me just yet.
If only . . .
If only we had found WMD’s in Iraq.
If only we had found OBL right away.
If only . . .
And the more the war in Iraq dragged on the more I wondered just why we were there.
Then to hear (On a National Geographic Channel Special) how we may have been duped in the run up to the war, the angrier I became.
If we had just focused on Afghanistan and worried about Iraq later, (if ever)
So I exercised my freedom of speech and started going to peace vigils.
PUT DOWN THAT ROCK, I see you. 😉
There was no one on the Mainstream Evangelical or conservative side calling for anti- war demonstrations.
The only conservatives saying anything along those lines were the conservatives in the far right alternative parties demanding Bush be impeached.
But no peace marches.
But there I was, a token “Jesus Freak” out there with my sign that said,
“Support The Troops, Bring Them Home Now!”
The peaceniks welcomed me with open arms. They started inviting me to all kinds of things. And I wondered just what in the world had I gotten myself into.
The last straw was the most telling. They invited me to “Workers Rights” Day.
“WORKER’S RIGHTs DAY?” That sounds allot like “Workers of the World Unite!” doesn’t it?
And sure enough WRD is on May 1st.
May Day is celebrated in Havana and Beijing. It’s the birthday of Communism, the start of atheist religious tyranny in Russia.
They say politics makes strange bedfellows. But when it comes to hanging out with God hating communists and anarchist woman that brag how they can pee outside standing up,
(Long story-you don’t want to know) that’s where I draw the line!
I still don’t understand why our country is so polarized, but I guess that’s just the way the American pie crumbles. In retrospect I believe George W. Bush and company saw what a big threat Islamic Fundamentalism was becoming and they felt after 9-11 the best thing to do was to get boots on the ground in Iraq, ASAP, no matter what the cost. Even if that meant stretching the truth or even telling lies to do it.
Who knows? If it hadn’t been for the economy going bad John McCain may have won instead of BAMA.
In the end I don’t regret my time with the commies because it taught me allot. Now I really see what the roots of the peace movement are.
There were others saying it, but I just had to see it for myself.
If we are really polarized as a nation, I’ll chose the side for for freedom and democracy.
There are other ways to deal with doubts.
Like praying, for one thing and blogging for another,
Recognizing just how far left the fringe stream media has become is good thing as well as knowing there are good news hubs on the web that set the record straight.

It’s certainly been a crazy year for those of us with children in the Schenectady School District. There are two things that keep me from totally giving up on this city altogether. One is, as a person of faith I know how prayer changes things. And two,
after seeing how much the Obama administration is train wrecking everything in sight it just goes to show our city government isn’t so bad after all.

It wasn’t a failure, it was a stepping stone.
My biggest failure happened when I tried to teach Sunday School. The kids are great, the staff is awesome and my fellow helpers are the best. However, they have this rule about no yelling at anyone and I tend to put it in “Coach” mode like my dad used to. You know,
“ALL RIGHT! EVERYBODY LISTEN UP!
That’s a no no.
And it was a struggle to find an alternative to yelling and with a room full of rambunctious pre teens that can be a challenge.
But the coordinator found something I’d be much better at.
Now I’ve got my whole family involved. Once a month we do a puppet show for the preschool kids and two weeks later we do one for the elementary group.
That’s how my favorite failure became a stepping stone to my greatest adventure.

The wise husband knows to always thank the wife for cooking dinner, especially if he’s lucky enough (like me) to have married a good cook.

How did Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif. ever get voted into office?
Take a look at this clip from FOX NEWS to see the smug “Know it all” attitude he has towards his constituents.
WHAT A LOSER!

Local Albany area terrorist and union hit man, Steven Raucci has gone to jail. And the man who may have been pulling his strings, or at least, KNEW who really was pulling his string, Schenectady school superintendent Eric Ely was able to walk away from his job and get away Scott free. In fact he received an awesome severance package from the school board after resigning.
But those of us who believe in “The Law of sin and death”, (Aka Karma) know better. It’s a law more sure than gravity. Or to put it another way.
What goes around comes around.
In this life or the one to follow.
