Remember this?

Did you understand what she said?

Neither did I! But this is the BEST that western Broward county can do. Sad that.

The Ant and The Grasshopper

September 21st, 2010
The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different ….
Two Different Versions …

Two Different Morals

OL
D VERSION

The ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and  dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself!


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grass hopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving. 

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? 

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green…’

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake. 

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. 

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper
, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of
the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of  green bugs and,  having  nothing left to  pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given  to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper! and his free-loading  friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is  in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has  disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found  dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over  by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous  and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it. 

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2010.

I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant not a grasshopper!

Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.

Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it, anyway

White House says Obama is Christian, prays daily

August 20th, 2010

I have to offer the one question that is just begging to be asked.

Why does any president of the United States have the need to issue an official press release declaring his faith?

It is plainly evident… Would it not be obvious?

James 2:18 says “But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

But the more discerning words come from Jesus Himself in Matthew 7:15-20 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”

 Lets check out some of that very low-hanging fruit:

Do I need to mention names like Jeremiah Wright or Michael Pfleger?

Here is one that may be obscure, Jim Wallis… the president’s top spiritual advisor. He is one of the progressive, evangelical left, better known as thinly-veiled communism, which is not supported biblically. Who is Jim Wallis and Sojourners, really?

Hey, you decide… if he really is a Christian. I know I am told not to believe what they say, but to examine the fruit. Furthermore please keep in mind what Luke 9:26 says “For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”

Perhaps that is why they needed to make a press release. God is omniscient, and I am sure He doesn’t need to read press releases.

School Group Told Not To Pray On U. S. Supreme Court Steps

August 13th, 2010

Another story that shows the mettle of our Next Greatest Generation.

This reprehensible act occurred earlier this year in May. A small school group bowed their heads to say a prayer on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. They were approached by a police officer and told…

“Ma’am, I’m not going to tell you that you can’t pray, but you can’t do it here,” he said, according to Mrs. Rigo. “Please go somewhere else.”

Is this not chilling?

The First Amendment is almost completely done in. Once the newspapers are bailed out, where will you get your news?

2 Months After Students Silenced, Crack NBC Washington Bureau Breaks the Story

August 12th, 2010

2 months after some of our Next Greatest Generation were caught in an act of alleged “civil disobedience,” NBC got the scoop!

Sadly, why is singing the U.S. National Anthem a demonstration? Furthermore, why are there “completely content neutral” areas in any U.S. National Park? And then that begs a really OBVIOUS question… isn’t that oxymoronic?

But then the journalist, probably a college graduate, is most likely a moral relativist, and may not understand the issues involved.

Sigh! There is no such thing as a free press in corporate-controlled newsrooms. Truth is what the state says is true, when it says it is true.

Clinton texts a $10 donation to Pakistan flood relief

August 6th, 2010

Wow! A whole $10!

All this week we have been saturated with the approaching “royal” wedding. After all the Clintons are busy planning to spend up to $5,000,000 for Chelsea’s wedding. Yet, Hillary Clinton has the time, and extra cash to “set an example” for the rest of us. by texting $10 for some truly in need.

The example brings to mind words like stingy, cheap and miserly… however these do not even begin to describe the discrepancy! That is just .0002% of the projected spending on 1 PERSON! There may be an estimated 12 million who will need aid in and around Swat Valley Pakistan due to the floods.

Those who work hard to bring home an average salary will probably never come close to earning $5,000,000. Yet these same people will gladly send $10 to help another. That $10 costing them personally almost an hour of labor. This would be a great sacrifice to a majority of generous and self-less Americans.

While those in Pakistan will have trouble finding just clean water to drink, the political elite (read left) will be wining and dining on all the best that there is!

These are the same people who tell us they are the champions of the poor. I think they are nothing more than modern day slave traders who steal from hard working Americans.

Do we need any other example of the hypocrisy of the democrats?

Regardless of your political leanings, if you would like to help those in need and live in the U.S., please text the word SWAT to the number 50555. Please bear in mind that the donation goes to a United Nations relief agency UNHCR.

Senate approves Obama nominee Kagan to top court

August 6th, 2010

Five Republicans supported this nomination. This is just more evidence that both political parties are taking us to the same place. There are some Republicans who want a spot in the ruling class… instead of being a true opposition to the party of dangerous communitarian or totalitarian “isms.”

The GOP needs a grand old makeover! It needs to go back to its anti-slavery roots!

When I get the solicitation calls to donate to the Republican party, and try to explain that I do not want ANY of my money to go to support these unprincipled  politicians, they cannot guarantee that.

Furthermore… until they have a unified voice, and a PLAN to defeat the vast expansion of government and converse enslavement of the citizenry, they WILL only receive tepid support. Why vote for the republicans who position themselves as “democrat-lite” when I can vote for the real thing? (As if I would!)

My answer to the GOP, you still get NONE of my money! I donate my sweat to those candidates who are actually worthy!
