Pro-Family Policy Goals

The Family Research Council has released its "25 Pro-Family Policy Goals for the Nation" I believe it is worth a thorough reading for all conservatives. The Obama transition team has missed the boat. Instead of using this historic opportunity to unite the country around positive, family friendly legislation, the Obama team is instead having to talk about his connections to Governor Blago and his corrupt administration. Read this, download it, pass it around to family and friends. If you're a conservative, you need to heed this.

New Gun Owners of America Website

If you consider yourself to be a lover of the Second Amendment,  you need to go check out the new website at www.gunowners.org. I strongly consider GOA to be on the leading edge of protecting our Second Amendment rights.

Gimme this kind of music any day to Hip Hop or Rap. This was when Rock and Roll was good.

Whale Wars - Simply an act of terrorism

Yes. You may have watched the television series, "Whale Wars" on Animal Planet. You may have even been entertained by those episodes, but in the opinion of one mariner, the acts of this group amounts to nothing more than piracy. I'm not a legal expert and some of my esteemed lawyer friends can correct me, but I believe they would be most closely defined as a terrorist cell. Seems to me that most of that group on the ship has WAY too much time on their hands.

Christmas - The Birth of The King

I cannot let this opportunity pass without sharing with you few readers of this blog, the most detailed account of the birth of Jesus as found in the Gospel according to Luke. This passage presented here is taken from the New American Standard Bible(rev. ed. 1995)

Luke 2:1       Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth.

Luke 2:2       This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.

Luke 2:3       And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city.

Luke 2:4       Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David,

Luke 2:5       in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child.

Luke 2:6       While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth.

Luke 2:7       And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Luke 2:8       In the same region there were {some} shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.

Luke 2:9       And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.

Luke 2:10       But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;

Luke 2:11       for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:12       "This {will be} a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Luke 2:13       And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

Luke 2:14       "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."

Luke 2:15 
      When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds {began} saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us."

Luke 2:16       So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger.

Luke 2:17       When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child.

Luke 2:18       And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds.

Luke 2:19       But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

Barney Frank - Theologian?

I know I said that I would not blog until after the first of the New Year, but I could not resist this one.  Pastor Rick Warren, of Saddleback Church, was chose to bring the invocation at the inauguration of President-elect Obama. Ok, not exactly a firebrand of conservative Christianity, but evidently Barney Frank believes Warren's selection to be defective. My question for Mr. Frank (the Congress' first openly homosexual member) is what theological grounds do you base this judgment on?  There is NO biblical basis for the acceptance of homosexual behavior (we are called only to love the sinner). In fact, whenever the unrepentant behavior is found, destruction, shame and judgment follow. Do Sodom and Gomorrah ring a bell?

I have my own opposition to the selection of Warren for this honor. First, he is NOT representative of the entire evangelical community. His desire to be 'relevent' has compromised what moral authority his position as pastor gives him. You base the success of a ministry solely on the number of members of Saddleback. Second, his positions on Global Warming, poverty and other social causes are NOT biblical.  Man was created to have dominion over the earth AND its creatures. Jesus himself told his disciples that the poor would be with them always. Meaning that man was created to used the resources of the earth for himself, not the other way around.

Who would have been my choice? I have two men who would have fit the bill perfectly. Drs. Ergun Caner and Billy Graham. If the Obama administration truly desired diversity, Dr. Caner would have been a great choice. He is the FIRST former Muslim to be appointed President of a major American seminary.  Obviously, Dr. Graham would have been a great choice because of his indellible impact upon the majority of the 20th century, otherwise called the American Century. Dr. Graham, in the twilight of his years, has seen much racial tension and strife, calling for an end to it based upon the love of Jesus for the world. To have him deliver the invocation for the inauguration for the first black President would have been truly historic.

I hesitate to lend credibility to Mr. Frank's theology. Somehow, his personal agenda shadows whatever theology might have been behind his reasoning. Add theologian to Barney Frank's resume. GOD HELP US!!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

A rough year it has been. Blogging has helped to maintain some focus.  I will not be blogging again until after the New Year has come. I want to take this chance to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Don't be PC. Call it Christmas.

The Greatest

It's not often that we get to see a pitcher of the caliber of Greg Maddux. Although I'm a Red Sox man, I have to admit that Greg Maddux is on my list of the top 3 pitchers of all time. Maddux announced his retirement at baseball's winter meetings on Monday, bringing to an end, what will be a certain first ballot Hall of Fame career.

Just for your information, my top three pitchers are.

1. Nolan Ryan
2. Greg Maddux
3. Steve Carlton

Prayers for VHCC

Some of you may have seen this in the BHC, but a VHCC student has been stabbed (not on campus). At any rate, the suspect showed up on campus a few weeks ago and threatened her. The guy has murdered  at least one other and stabbed this girl. Please remember the families and law enforcement as they pursue this guy.

Cuccinelli Wins Straw Poll at Advance

Considering the efforts the Brownlee campaign put in to bring in support to the Advance, it would appear that Senator Cuccinelli is by no means fighting a losing battle for the nomination. Thanks to Crystal Clear Conservative for this post that demonstrates that this race will be a rocket buster all the way to the Convention. It's going to be fun folks!!!

A Day That Will Live in Infamy

December 7, 1941 - Pearl Harbor, HI.  At the time, the greatest act of aggression against the United States on its possessions or territories. I for one will NEVER forget December 7. The day the world learned about true American resolve and it learned about "awakening a sleeping giant."  REMEMBER THE ARIZONA!!!!

Cuccinelli: A Friend of the Family

I'm a a little late with this, but Senator Ken Cuccinelli has been named Virginia's Legislator of the Year by the Family Foundation. This is a wonderful designation. This illlustrates why Ken Cuccinelli should be the GOP nominee for Attorney General in 2009. We need a strong advocate for Virginia's families as our next Attorney General. We need Ken Cuccinelli!!!

December 4, 1989

For most, this date has little or no meaning. That is not the case for me. That date changed my life forever. I was involved in a automobile accident that crushed my right arm and left me with diminished usage of it. Somethings we will always remember. This is one of those dates.

Cuccinelli qualifies for Convention ballot

Senator Ken Cuccinelli has gained enough signatures on petitions to qualify to be included in the RPV nominating convention next year. I will grant that Mr. Brownlee has quite a batch of endorsements, but in my humble opinion, Senator Cuccinelli has been battle tested in the toughest part of the Commonwealth for conservatives. Northern Virginia has been tough for conservatives in statewide elections. I believe Senator Cuccinelli will be a stronger candidate in the more populous areas than will Mr. Brownlee. That being said, Mr. Brownlee, or for that matter, Mr. Cuccinelli, will have a tough row to hoe next year.

Kilo, my friend, we agreed on Duncan Hunter for President, some of the few in this state to do so. I have to disagree this time buddy. Ken Cuccinelli is the future of the RPV, and the future is now.

Kudos to Michelle Obama

Don't get me wrong, I believe her husband is taking the wrong kind of stands, but Mrs. Obama has made it clear that she intends to be a good wife and mother to her children. Thank you Michelle. Dr. Albert Mohler, a Southern Baptist Seminary president and cultural commentator has this post on his blog.

Despite the pressures of the feminazis in her party, it is somewhat reassuring that the incoming First Lady has her priorities straight. Would the same radical feminists decry the raising of the Obama children by White House staff while Mrs. Obama pursued her career outside the White House? There's some food for thought. Another question. While these women claim to be espousing feminist ideals, doesn't it seem strange that they are attempting to become more masculine and simultaneously attempting to feminize the men of the world. As Brad Paisley puts it(sic) there's no mousse in my hair and I still got a PAIR, Thank God I'm still a guy.

Street Cred?

Jerry at From On High has this tidbit. "Legitimacy on the street?" This is absolutely disgusting. You would think that a so called executive of a major television network would be a little more astute than this. Old South plantation indeed Jerry. This is a back handed slap against Mr. Obama and his achievements. I'm not a fan of the One, but let's give the man his due. He won the election and is the President-elect.  To insinuate that his legitimacy is linked only to his skin color is simplistic at best and racist at worst.

For better or worse, Mr. Obama's legitimacy is based ONLY on the decision of the American people to grant him legitimacy. No more, no less. To suggest anything else is to appeal to the base passions of racists everywhere.
