I'm no poet but...

Michelle Malkin posted on her site a brief story about a poetry contest at:

Roses are red
Bees are swarming
We're all going to die from Global Warming

Her title was the best poem there. I found very few poems in the comment section so I thought I would make my own. Then I found that I could not add it because I don't have an account for her site. So I thought I would post it here.


Is this a contest that anyone can join?
Any chance of me winning some coin?

When I was a high-schooling,
We feared and we fret
The panic was global cooling.
MSM sure had us upset

But I must have slept through that little ice age
Main Stream Media has now changed the page

A consensus has been made by all who agree
Man caused this warming don’t you see?
Just ignore all of the scientists who do disagree
They are so disarming but their getting a fee

They all work for big bad oil
And cannot be trusted
Can’t they see we are all going to boil?
They ought to be busted

And his most excellent Gore
Jeez he’s such a bore
He takes the cake
and get’s right to the core
Wish a could stay awake
But he makes me snore

Now something should be said here about our Carbon foot print
But the only thing I can come up with is Bourbon and something not fit to print

Hey! This was fun
Can we do the next one on the 2nd Amendment and my favorite gun?

More Hyped Reporting

More sad fallout from the Domestic Violence on Christmas in Carnation. A women and her boy friend kill her parents, her brother and her brother's wife and their two young children. Apparently, a 911 call was attempted but not completed. Deputies were dispatched to check it out but they found the gate to the property locked. Their department is investigating why no further action was taken.

I read in a separate article that Domestic Violence calls are the most common calls on Christmas day. Man! How many bad ties can Aunt Bessie give out to cause so much trouble. Is that why the deputies had to leave because they were swamped? How many of the 911 calls taken that day were prank calls.

Then I read the article by King 5's Linda Brill with the headline:
No such demand is listed in the article. A surviving brother is quoted as saying that if he had been the deputy and that happened to him, he would retire. But no "demand" is listed. My opinion is that Ms. Brill is the only one with a "demand" and it's purpose is to sensationalize her article. I think we need to demand more accurate reporting from the Main Stream Media.

Ten GLOBAL Questions for WARMING Your Heart

Pat Sajak over at Human Events asks ten very good questions about Global Warming at

  1. What is the perfect temperature?
  2. What is the average temperature of the earth?
  3. What factors have led to global warming in the past, and how do we know they aren’t the causes of it now?
  4. Why is there such a strong effort to stifle discussion and dissent?
  5. Why are there such dramatically different warnings about the effects of man-made global warming?
  6. Are there potential benefits to global warming?
  7. Should such drastic changes in public policy be based on a “what if?” proposition?
  8. What will be the impact on the people of the world if we change the way we live based on man-made global warming concerns?
  9. How will we measure our successes?
  10. How has this movement gained such momentum?
His comments are worth reading so I recommend checking the article out. I would also want to ask "How is our Anthropogenic Global Warming causing the Martian ice caps to melt?"

Bottom line, these proverbial watermelons (Envy Green on the outside and Communist Red on the inside) just want the control. They may say it is for the environment, or even for the children but I don't think they truly care for either.

Ex-Officer Stops Homeschooler on Killing Sree at Mega Church started by Closet Homosexual

I don't get it. Earlier this week I heard that a homeschooler had killed several people at a mega church that had been started by a closet homosexual but was killed (the homeschooler, not the closet homo) by a security guard. Wait! No, that changed to he killed himself because the security guard was a police officer that had been fired ten years early for lying about yelling at a bus driver. Now it is hard to find anything real specifics in the major media.

There is more material from the local papers in Colorado but the big hype above was all I heard this week.

Bottom line: Jeanne Assam, a law abiding citizen with a right to carry a fire arm, stopped a killing spree. Even if the creep fired his own fatal shot, he clearly had not planned to stop that soon. Miss (or Ms?) Assam is a hero and she did the right thing. But I wonder:
  1. Why was the hero's past significant?
  2. Why was the past of the founder of the church significant?
  3. Why was the educational past of the killer significant? I don't think I have ever seen a report that said, "And the suspect was educated in a public school."
Just asking.

How UN-American

I knew it.

Global Warming Goals Revealed

You will be assimilated! We are the United Nations and we will UN-Americanize you. We will ruin, er..., I mean run your country. We know what's best for you. We ARE what is best for the US and everybody. First, we will take control of all energy because it pollutes and damages Mother Earth. Then we will take your money because you are polluters and cause damage to Mother Earth. And then the UN will build a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven, and we will make the UN a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

(Gen 11:4 UN version)

Shopping Carts

Here's a "fine" bit of news

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The city of Beaverton could become the first in Oregon to use a new law that allows cities to fine retailers $50 for each shopping cart stores fail to retrieve.

Sounds like our food prices will go up - again.

Perhaps we will see the grocery stores place a rental fee on the carts. Another option would be for the stores to offer a finder's fee to those who return carts. That could even provide some employment for some idle youth in the neighborhood.

Still, it doesn't seem fair for the government to fine a business for the carts. Here they provide a basket to carry your groceries and some irresponsible lazy person fails to return it. So who do we penalize? The business of course.

Either way, I can feel my wallet getting thinner.

My Favorite Bible Software

I have tried some of the big name Bible Software programs. They were nice. But for the several hundred dollars they cost, they should be. I don't want to muzzle the the ox,


But I just cannot afford that.

However, Rick Meyers has produced e-Sword and offers it for free at

It's as good , if not better than any of the big buck versions that I have tried. We can leave the big stuff to the Pastor (Make sure you pay him enough to buy his tools please!) but if you are a layman, like me, and a little behind on everything, check out e-Sword.

Peace is Patriotic?

Maybe you have seen the bumper sticker, "Peace is Patriotic." I believe this is true, peace is patriotic. However, seeing this with all of the other bumper stickers I see it displayed with, makes me think that they think that "War is Not Patriotic." And that is not true.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines a Patriot as, "One who loves, supports, and defends one's country." The same dictionary defines a peacenik as, "A political activist who publicly opposes war, a particular war, or the proliferation of weapons; a pacifist." I suspect that the bumper sticker bearers are peaceniks. And that's fine. They have the freedom in this country to think, believe, and say what they want. However, I think they have either forgotten, or they never knew, or maybe they don't even care where freedom came from.

Freedom is not free. There is a saying in economics that I think applies here, TANSTAAFL "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch." Somebody has to pay for it. Stores offer "free" items at the expense of their marketing budgets. God offers salvation to us "free" at the expense of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Our right to be "free" came at the expense of those that that have gone before us that were willing to pay the ultimate price in war. But this freedom is not forever. For us to keep it, for our children to have it, somebody must be ready and willing to pay the price again. At least until there are no tyrants, no bullies that want to take it away.

Peace without war is capitulation. And to capitulate to an enemy, especially to the Jihadists of today, would mean subjugation. Subjugation is not freedom, nor is it free. We'll pay for it; with fear.

Why They Can't Find Love

While stuck in the check out line at a local grocery, I noticed the following on one of the magazines on the rack that suckers buy on impulse:

Why They Can't Find Love

Beautiful, Rich, and Alone

The nightmares of dating in that
self-absorbed world of Hollywood.

Well Duh! I don't even need to know who the girls are on the cover to know the answer to that. When one self-absorbed person dates another self-absorbed person, never the tween shall meet. Or, shallow is as shallow does.

I did not buy the magazine.

To the Party In Charge

I urge you to support General Petraeus and allow him to finish the job in Iraq. The government of Iraq is the wrong benchmark to use. It may be a long time before they come up to speed to meet any benchmarks we set for them. However, the conflict in Iraq is NOT the war, it is merely the largest battle front.

There have been thousands of attacks by the Jihadist's world wide over the last decade. This branch of fanaticism is flexing it's muscle and it sees every step we take backwards as an opportunity to take a step forward. We need to hold our ground. We cannot afford to offer them any sort of encouragement.

The book they read is sorted in order by book size and has sayings of peace through out it. However, when placed in chronological order, it starts with peace and progresses to violence calling for the submission of all.

We may eventually be able to negotiate with them. But if we cannot negotiate from a position of strength, the only thing we will have to offer to them is submission. And that will be the end of our freedom.

Help! My Party has fallen and I can't get up.

I must have fallen asleep or something. I am no longer covered by my party's tent. Did it disappear? Did it just move - left? They (the infamous "They") had said that we would make a bigger tent so we could take in all of those that were left out. Well! If they were "left," maybe that's why they were "out" in the first place.

So what happened? Did the tent get bigger? Oh my gosh! Maybe that's not my party tent at all but the tent of the other party. It's so much like them now. Wait! I see it. The other tent has moved even further to the left. And my party tent has been sucked over by the resulting vacuum (Ross Perot thought that sucking sound was just our taxes). It seems that a tent can only get so big, the fabric can only stretch so far before things come apart.

So the party of the left has moved left and is leftier then they used to be and the party of the right has followed and moved left. I think I know how Joe Lieberman feels. I hope this is just a nightmare and I wake up pretty soon.

The thoughts of the righteous are right, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. (Proverbs 12:5 NKJV)

Gore the Bore makes me Snore while Jr's throat goes Sore.

I missed old Al's Concert. No I didn't. Truth be told, I skipped it. I don't think I missed anything. I did skim the news to look for interesting tidbits. Like the following words of wisdom from RFK Jr. as reported in

"Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies," said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmentalist author, president of Waterkeeper Alliance and Robert F. Kennedy's son, who grew hoarse from shouting. "This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors."

Wow! Pretty strong words. I thought Treason and Traitor was reserved for those who aid and abet the enemy? Who is the enemy here? Carbon Dioxide? Jr. must have been convinced that we are in serious trouble by Al's movie "THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH." Personally, I'm waiting for the Infallible proof. As soon as he can tell me how my Carbon emissions are causing the polar ice caps on Mars to melt, then I might start paying attention.

Pope says I don't go to a "real' church. So what?

A coworker who occasionally (I think) tries to irritate me asked me, "Did you hear that you don't really belong to a church?" I said, "Huh?" He then went on to explain what the Pope said. The linked article below explains it in more detail.

Pope: Other Christian Denominations Not True Churches

Frankly, My friend, I don't give a darn.

I kinda like Pope Benedict. But as a Protestant, I don't really care that much about what he says. I also don't understand why some of the mainline denominations are so upset about it.

I was raised as a nominal Catholic. I didn't accept Christ as my Saviour until I was in my late teens. And then I became a Protestant. Protestant-ism was NOT a prerequisite to being saved. I think there are a lot of Protestants that are not saved. I also think there are some Catholics that are saved. I'm just not sure that the Pope is one of them.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the head of the Church and the Gospel is the issue.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
(John 3:16-21 NKJV)

S-O-R-D-E for Immigration


It may not make a good bumper sticker but it works as a pretty good acronym for establishing immigration priorities. Almost even sounds, ...well, Spanish (DOERS could work but REODS just didn't make sense).
  • S-eal the borders. We may not be able to cover every mile but anything we can do that will impede the flow and assist the Border Patrol is to our advantage.
  • O-pen legal immigration. Let's increase the number we annually authorize to immigrate. Let's encourage those who want to come to America legally to become Americans. I do not believe that there are jobs that no American will take but if we need more employable people, let's invite those who want to make our homeland their homeland.
  • R-eturn illegals when caught to their place of origin. Let's not worry about the 12+ Million here illegally for now, IF they are keeping a low profile. However, if they are caught committing a crime, send them back to their country of origin. But, don't send them back to go free. Instead, make a deal with their country of origin to incarcerate them for us. We can pay the country their fee for maintaining a prisoner. Even if they over charge us, I am sure that overall, it will cost us less. So what if the crooks don't get to watch TV.
  • D-iscourage the employment of illegals. Heavily fine employers that violate the laws but also make it easier for them to confirm a prospective employee. (For one thing, illegals should NOT be able to get a drivers license.)
  • E-nglish for assimilation. Establish English only as the national language to encourage assimilation. We do need and want immigrants. But they need to become Americans. They cannot easily do that if they are isolated by their language. And we don't help them by trying to accommodate their language for all government services. For a business, this is fine. But for all official government transactions, we should be working with one language - English.
The Senate may have given up on "their" immigration bill but we should not let them give up on this issue. We should enforce the current laws and work on improvements (I humbly suggest the above list) but we cannot just give up because too many people have already snuck across our borders.

Outsource the Incarcerated Illegals

My basic thoughts on Illegal Immigration are:

  1. Open up legal immigration.
  2. Seal the Borders
  3. Send back the ones we catch
  4. Discourage employing Illegals
  5. Make English the national language to encourage assimilation
But I would like to expand upon the 3rd point about sending them back. We cannot just declare that they all go home and expect them to do it. And we don't have the resources to make them all go home. But, if we catch them breaking another law (besides being her illegally in the first place) we send them back to where they came from.

But the challenge to that is, "What if they have committed a series crime?" Shouldn't they do some time? Yes! But how about we send them back to their country of origin to be incarcerated? What's in it for that country? We would pay that country to jail that person. And while they may charge us more then it costs them, it would probably be cheaper then keeping them in jail here.

And while we are at it, we could send the ones that are crowding our jails now. This would reduce the prison population considerably and we could avoid having to build more jails. We could pay these International hosts annually for as long as these individuals were to be jailed. When their time is up, we stop paying. We would probably need to audit these prisons periodically but I think we could do all of this for a lot less then what we pay per prisoner now.

Glob, er, No Solar Warming!?

Why do we still call it "Global Warming" when it's bigger then the globe? If the polar ice caps on Mars are melting, shouldn't we call it "Solar Warming" instead?

When you have a "House Warming" party, you don't isolate one room and call it by that room. We don't call it a "Living Room Warming" because that is where the majority of the people will be. We don't call it a "Drive Way Warming" because that is where all of the SUV's are. And we certainly don't call it a "Bathroom Warming" party (even if there is an increase in the methane level there). We call it a "House Warming" party.

Therefore, we should broaden the scope of the warming warning. If we do that, perhaps we can try some of the fad fixes on a smaller scale to see if they work first. Before we subject the USA to the proposed draconian measures of the Kyoto Kra, er,... I mean accord, let's ban all SUV's and/or even all emissions on Mars. If the polar ice caps there come back, then we can start these measure on earth.

As a God fearing Steward of His handiwork, I have a responsibility to care for this planet in the best way that I can. However, this does not mean submitting to the worshipers of Gaia. They, NOT believing in a God that is bigger then themselves, feel that it all depends upon them. They want to control from a position of fear because they fear their future. On the other hand, as a Christian, I know that my future is secure in Him. I am accountable unto Him for all of my actions, but my future is His. And being who He is, that is secure. So, I shall call it Solar Warming in an effort to remember that this climate issue is not all about us but that God has a plan for all of us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
(John 3:16 NKJV)

Will Gun Control Work?

The Premise of gun control is that outlawing all guns means that the law breakers will have no access to any guns. Some surmise that if we made all guns illegal in the entire world, the bad guys would not be able to get any guns at all. Problem Solved! Or is it?

My neighborhood has been declared as a "Drug Free Zone." There is even a yellow street sign to prove it (or remind everybody?). Yet, a house in this same neighborhood was found to be a Meth lab. To my knowledge, this drug is not legal in any part of the country. Not just the city. Not just my home state. But the entire country. And they were making the drugs here.

May I go another step further? Crime is illegal in this country, yet it still happens. Why? Because there are people that choose to NOT obey those in authority for anything.

Gun control laws don't disarm criminals. They only disarm law abiding citizens. Criminals know this. And even if the criminal does not have a gun, he/she knows that their victims do not either. Virginia Tech was advertised as a Gun Free Zone. Perhaps the outcome would have been different if there had been some law abiding citizen there who was armed. Perhaps the outcome would have been different if the killer had NOT known that all his victims would be un-armed.

One Sheet per Sit?

Whoa! You gotta be careful when you say that. I guess that's ok if your sheet don't stink.

That was singer Sheryl Crow's joke at some global warming gathering recently, “I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required.”

I suspect she meant it as a joke but she's gotta know that some liberal legislature is going to take her serious and try to make it a law. And when they get hold of that, they'll want us to use both sides.


But then maybe she's just trying to think outside the pot, er ... I mean box.

Resurrection Sunday 2007

Even so, come Lord Jesus.

I watched "The Nativity Story" for the first time last night. (I think Easter and Christmas are so closely tied together, I have no problem with watching Christmas Movies near Easter. Or singing Resurrection songs on Christmas.) I like how it portrayed the possible problems that Joseph and Mary had with their relationship with each other and their neighbors. And how God provides more then enough just in the nick of time.

The King of Kings and Lord of Lords delivered to man in such a meager way. God choose Joseph and Mary but He also tested them. A Bible teacher recently showed me that we read of the Biblical Saint's victories and defeats after the fact. They lived it. They were being tested when only God knew the outcome. We can learn a lot from their victories. Maybe even more from their mistakes.

God, I want to make less mistakes.

He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20 NKJV)

The Speaker Speaks and Syria Laughs at U.S.

Nanny Pull-Out-See's visit to Syria was more then humiliating.

  1. She defied the President. (No big deal in the eyes of the libs.)
  2. She overstepped her Constitutional limits. (Being the Constitutional experts they are on the left, how could they miss this one? Is this part of that "living-breathing document" philosophy?)
  3. She "LIED" about what the Prime Minister of Israel said. (I guess it depends upon how you define "peace" talks.)
  4. She cavorted with a despot who supports and aids our enemies.
  5. AND, I am assuming, that she made the US taxpayers pay for this trip.

I do not see how her actions shows her support for our troops. I think she has made this world more dangerous for them and for U.S.

And it looks like it was illegal.

Remember When?

Do you remember when or where you first heard that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA? Neither do I. Does that mean we have to go to jail?

And just how did a reporter get on the jury? I suppose he will write a book and call it, "The big fish that got a way." (There is something fishy about this whole thing.) I'm sure it will be listed as "non-fiction" along with the Inconvenient Truth and Fahrenheit 911.

Joe Wilson is disappointed that the President has shown no sorrow for what has happened to his wife. I'm not sure what he means by that. The only "sad thing" I'm aware of in her life is her husband. And that was her choice. It must suck to be her.

Cowardly Bullies

I think the Jihadists are cowardly bullies; They attack women, children, the elderly, and unarmed men. Basically, the weak. And when they do attack soldiers, it is usually while hiding behind their preferred targets, the weak. Then, to avoid dealing with the consequences, they kill themselves, "Ha Ha, you can't get me now."

He (usually a he) thinks he's a hero. His bully buddies think he's a hero. And he thinks he will soon be surrounded by his seventy virgins (Unless he is a she then she...what does she get? Perhaps she sees this as an escape from her bully brothers or something). And will these virgins think he is a hero?

And about those virgins, does he marry them all? Or will he be forced to live in a household run by seventy women who want to remain virgins? I often wondered about that. The Imam's probably don't tell these "hero's" about that.

Now I will probably be threatened or worse by one or more of these bullies. Oh well! My God is bigger then their god. And He's real.

I Think...

The Guardian Unlimited reports:

No religion and an end to war: how thinkers see the future

Really? No religion? The Opiate of the masses gone? Just like that?

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. (Psalms 2:4 NKJV)

There is just too much here. Where do we start? First of all, what does it take to be a thinker anyway? I am; therefore, I think? (Apologies to Descartes) Do they think better, or smarter then the rest of us? Or, do they think they are better or smarter then the rest of us?

Science might be able to replace religion. Why not? There are many people who use religion to avoid having to answer to The one true God. The infamous "they" distort or ignore His Word to justify their own way. which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. (2 Peter 3:16 b NKJV)

I'll grant that "religion" is man made. God wants a relationship with us. Am I splitting hairs? Maybe? Most religions are man's attempt to reach up to God. But God has already reached down to us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 NKJV)

These "Thinker's" don't just want us to drop religion. They want us to forget God because they don't want to believe in Him. And, they don't want anybody to remind them of Him

The fool has said in his heart,"There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. (Psalms 14:1 NKJV)

I am thinking that they should try to convince me that there is no God

"Come now, and let us reason together," Says the Lord, "...

(Isaiah 1:18 a NKJV)

And in their attempt, perhaps they will come face to face with God and drop this foolishness.

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 NKJV)
