I know many people think Glenn Beck is a lunatic, but what if he is correct? Has anyone in the media come out to discredit him? Yes! Has anyone come out to disprove his findings on the bureaucracy and corruption that is associated with the government, corporations and media? No! Wait...did I just hear a "No"? Why? Perhaps they think that his findings are merely that of a madman or a good old fashioned conspiracy theorist? But, has anyone ever checked out his evidence? I have! Maybe not all, but the items I have checked out were indeed true! Why won't someone else check out his accusations? Maybe they have and can't disprove any of them? The scary part of this is that these facts certainly go against our founding system of government, cheques and balances, values and citizenry as we know it! Have we really become a nation of minimal expectation and pacification by another? We can only hope not! Where are the rest of the media on these issues? In my opinion, they are so attached to the breast of corporate stigmatising that weaning them off would be as easy as drilling a cavity on a lion! If we are at the crossroads of becoming a socialist nation ridding ourselves of self dependence and independence, where are the voices challenging this transformation? Have we really lost our thirst to be the only Republic in the world? Does the majority of this country really want to sit back and let the government do all the work? I believe the government is good for some things, but for everything..no way! So, is Glenn Beck correct? I think we need to wake up and prove him wrong! We can't sit on the bench hoping the coach will call us into the game because it is our game and the game is FREEDOM! We all know the feeling of losing a game, but this game would leave an everlasting sting!!!

While driving to drop my kids off at my relatives house I heard on the radio that Lindsey Lohan was having financial difficulties. Wow! Not only is that ground breaking news that needed to be reported to the listening nation, but should have been addressed by the President! The report went on to say that Miss Lohan had been dropped for a part that she reportedly had already been screened for. Well, kids this is why parents should explain the truth of Hollywood and the hard reality that it isn't this magical place where dreams come true to live happily ever after! How often do we hear about the fall from grace that many actors take. Rarely, although not always do we hear of an actor leaving Hollywood to make the same salary that he/she acquired while in the lime light. So, kids this is why actors are only pretending to not only be someone they are not on camera, but in their everyday lives also!

Am I against homosexuality? Well, I do have a relative who is gay. That's not the question. Am I against homosexuality? Do I think it is wrong morally, well, no. My reason is because you cannot condemn someone for exercising freewill. If a person is convinced that they believe strongly in something despite it's popularity or religious approval I agree that a person has the right to exist as such. Now, do I totally agree with homosexuality. No, because it does prevents the natural laws of nature from occuring. Procreation can't occur through homosexuality. Common sense, right. Many people feel that this is false because you can adopt or have donors, but ultimately it is between two opposite genders. So, why would we condone such behavior if it goes against natural law? I can't answer that, but maybe it's because the individual who has the attraction to the same sex was born missing a part of the brain that interprets the attraction to the opposite sex? I guess you would assimilate it to a handicap like down syndrome or some other condition that is created due to an absence of something physiologically? I am not a doctor nor am I homosexual so I can't determine how the feelings are for the same sex. If you believe in God and follow the Bible, Old and New Testament, you believe that God created Adam and Eve to procreate in the likeness of him! However, I do feel that as far as gay marriage is concerned it should be implemented only by a state law, like it is now, and never a federal law. I'm not o.k. with homosexuality being pushed into religion. The Bible is what it is and no one, but God himself can change that. So for any activists to say that they are being discriminated against should take that one up with God. I think to myself from time to time that some day homosexuals are going to have an encounter with the opposite sex and say,"This is what I missed! What was I thinking!" I'm sure this has happened, but you really don't hear about it. I have a friend who fathered five children and went through two divorces. Wouldn't you know he became a homosexual. Why? I never asked. Maybe it was because it is en vogue to be homosexual or maybe he wanted masculine companionship? Maybe he was just bored?Whatever the case I guess we'll all find out at judgement!

I can't figure out why the Representatives all over the country are so full of BS. Even when they are told what the concerns of the country are they spin the attention to the other side. I can't believe that I am turning into a Libertarian every day! Also, why is the race card being used despite cameras roling and comments being recorded that are not racist nor implied! Some people just can't find a way to debate without using race or some other loaded statement to discredit the opposition. I can't count how many blogs I 've read have actually misquoted people time and time again without correcting themselves even after being proven wrong! I know not a lot of people like Glenn Beck, but everyone will report that he said something that he didn't say! I personally have listened when something was said on his radio show and then it was totally not even taken out of context, but taken from who knows where! I mean the words were not even correct and Glenn has the copy to prove it along with the millions of people that listen to him! Why do people feel it necessary to go to these tactics? These are adults pulling these stunts and veteran journalists reporting it. Why? It does nothing but destroy their credibility! In this day and age people can verify facts very quickly! There must be an ulterior motive that is unseen which in and of itself is corrupt in my opinion. As Americans when are we all collectively going to say "Stop the BS and report the truth". Is this how we were all raised to destroy a persons life by slandering them with untruths? Disgusting! I pray that my childrens generation will not have to deal with this crap!

I recently learned the true meanings of these terms that had never been taught to me before. According to words of the writers of the U.S. Constitution a Democracy is rule by the population as a whole and a Republic is rule by the population via a representative of the collective. How many of us were taught that democracy was having a fair society that is given the freedom to change whatever wrongs there are in the collective society? Is it true? Not really! The architects of the new United States of America proved that a Democracy could not work because it always ended in tyranny or by a single ruler dictating the collective society. The reason behind it was that a Democracy votes on all issues and rules individually. This meant that EVERYONE in the country had to show up at one place at one time to vote on the issue, law, rule, etc. This proved to be a problem because to get EVERYONE in one place at one time was physically impossible, but also, not everyone would show up for any given reason. This would create, in essence, pockets of individuals who could coerce a group to vote certain ways based on MAJORITY vote! This could lead to certain laws being passed that gave power to specific groups or individuals which, ultimately, could lead to tyranny because the laws could be written in such a way that omits the vote of others! Does this sound familiar? Health Care? Bailout Bill? This is what the country has been falling into despite our country being a Republic. A Republic gives an elected Representative to vote and speak on behalf of a small collection of individuals. This system was chosen because if the Representative does not, in the opinion of the constituents for which he/she serves, convey correctly the concerns and votes of the constituents the Representative may be voted out after the term served. This prevents tyranny because the country is comprised of many many Representatives of different states that makes it difficult to form a single ruler. Unfortunately, this is the reason for the "Tea Party" movement! These Representatives are not siding with the constituents and are making decisions based on personal special interests and outside coersion despite the majority concerns. The "I know better than you attitude" has evoked an irritation that needs to be scratched and many elected officials are getting out before the storm hits in November. We will see next year if anything changes, but bottom line is WE ARE A REPUBLIC NOT A DEMOCRACY!!!

Do you prefer big government, small government, government that provides everything, government that provides some things or nothing. How about we have a king instead of a president or a dictator like Napoleon? How long would you like this person to rule? Should it be one, two, four, or til death? Most Americans and probably most people in general, feel as though someone else will speak on their behalf. How often do we find ourselves hearing something that we feel is not right and opt to do nothing but complain about it? Do we call our representatives? Normally no because we assume someone else has brought it to their attention. The "tea party" movement does exactly that by getting in the faces of the representatives and expressing their disapproval of their representation. Many find this movement anti-government. Most tea party members have expressed that they are not for "no government", but "small government" as written in the U.S. Constitution. If this movement didn't have anything to back up their rationale I would also assume that they were a bunch of trouble makers too! This whole movement actually started by a comment made by a CNBC financial commentator not a FOX NEWS watching conservative. Are there people out there that are just trying to dismiss the movement because they do want to change America's structure...absolutely! Why would someone want to change how the "Founders" formed our Republic? Obviously, like most, we feel compelled to right a situation when we think we have been wronged. The difference is that most also do not act on these thoughts! There are many "parties" in this country that feel that America needs to change completely! Many of these parties are conservatives, democratic, liberal, atheist, communist, etc. When a party is formed that supports anything other than the original documents of our Republic it is radical! There is no other government on this planet that offers the freedoms of the original Bill of Rights! So, why would anyone want to silence or embarrass a movement like the "Tea Party" that supports our original documents? Like it or not the "Tea Party" movement is trying to protect the original documents not rewrite history....in my opinion!

This is a dark time in our history. Many of us may remember reading these little items in some old book from long ago. End of days? End times? I hope not, but many a religious prophecy lists these items as signs of the end of civilization. Do I think this is the finale of us? I don't know? I guess it's your faith in mankind that determines whether you believe or not. Many of us believe in God and find it hard to believe that the creator of Heaven and Earth could be so cruel. If we were to get in our cars and drive around for the sole purpose of noticing our world just from a local standpoint we may see that things are not as rosy as we assume they are! When we travel locally we put blinders on, but if we go outside the area we appreciate things that locals may not! In my opinion, this ties in prophecy from the aspect of being a good God fearing citizen to your community first. If we are blind to problems and issues of our home why should God spare us judgment prior to our opportunity to live life to what we feel is the fullest? He calls the shots, in my opinion. Whatever your denomination is, typically, our own vanity and arrogance is what gets us in trouble. How do you feel when you find money on the ground? If you answered lucky, well, then you should worry! If you really understand what God has given us as far as virtue, you would feel the need to give this money back or put it to charity. This is my opinion and I'm not innocent either! We all need to work on being better people! This is the problem with politics today. If we are not forced to be charitable or giving we can find the answers of being virtuous on our own. Once we feel pressure to act a certain way, without free will, most of us feel that charity is unworthy because we are told we have to do it! Should we all live in one happy family? Well, it would be nice to live without hate, war, racism, etc., but the ones that cause these issues are the ones that need to heed exterior signs of peril and, unfortunately, have to figure it out for themselves!
