Between Facebook and running back and forth to You Tube who has time to blog old school?  Then there’s Twitter and Spotify.

And don’t get me started on my off line world!

(OMG OMG OMG Jesus have mercy!)

A couple of health crisis’s to resolve and a ton of work related issues and I’ve decided to return back here.

Besides, my You Tube videos suck rotten apples and get no views.  ;-(

Oh well, like the saying goes if at first you don’t succeed, go back

to Word Press! 🙂

New York state could be the only place where the Tea Party Movement may have hurt the Republicans rather than help them. It didn’t help that Carl Paladino was not ready for prime time and got set up by the Dems and the fringe stream media like a bowling pin. And now King Cuomo is firmly in charge.

In the next two years Republicans will have to decide what really works in New York may not be the same as what works for the rest of the country. Perhaps it’s better to be pragmatic than idealistic.

On the other hand two years can be a long time in the age of 24/7 hour news cycles. The Republican tsunami that swept most of the nation could grow in 2012 to reach into places as unlikely as the NY-21 where the GOP candidate did allot better than the usual token challenge in 2010.

But whatever optimism Republicans have about this nation’s future. They need to remember that New York State is an alternate reality.

Great Cartoon Blog

September 5, 2010

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that’s true then “Draw For Truth” speaks volumes!

I love what the blog has to say about the unfair attacks against Sarah Palin, The Tea Party Movement and the lame stream media’s desperate attempts at damage control for our failed president.  Check it out!

Since I’m not a Sean Hannity wanna be, I have no problem posting a clarification or even a retraction of sorts, regarding my last post.

I do not believe that every single person involved in the modern peace movement is a God hating atheist or a USA hating communist.  But I do get the distinct impression that the organizers behind it all, are.

On the other hand if my fellow Evangelicals have any hope of reaching outsiders who are liberals, or peace marchers, or even anarchists, (And Jesus did say go into ALL the world) then we’d better make sure whenever possible our churches stay right out of politics altogether.

We need to stay as far as we can from pinheads like this group in Florida who are having a “Burn the Koran” day.  Our Lord said “Love your enemies,” not pick a fight with them.

FAIL!

And we Evangelicals need to disassociate ourselves from people like those jack wagons who showed up at U Albany last year (or was it the year before?) with signs that had stuff like “God Hates Gays” on them.  That got me so upset I almost showed up on campus dressed in drag carrying a super soaker!

(Do I want to post this?  YEAH!  I do)

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.

HT-YNN-Albany

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 . . .

But no.

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)

BUT NO.

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!

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.


Praying for Schenectady

July 22, 2010

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.

My Best Failure

July 6, 2010

It wasn’t a failure, it was a stepping stone.

Coach Shook

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.

PUPPETS!

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.
