  • Cruz nets first endorsement

    ...."At least let’s find out, whether Sarah Palin will run this time."....

    Palin isn't running. Too much money, too much damage by the media. I love her, but Cruz is still not so soiled by the MSM. Cruz is also more poised to take them on in debates. If Cruz can last till the debates, IMO, he will knock the rest off the stage. He has argued several times before the SCOTUS and won most of them if not all of them.( haven't studied the exact number)

    I saw Jack Welch endorse Cruz today. I almost jumped from my chair. Politco's all line up for some sort of promise or favor, but Welch is just a retired guy with lots of weight on Wall Street. Wall Street will be pulling for Hillary and Bush for the most part. It's impressive that Welch makes up his own mind. I usually don't think endorsements count for much, but to endorse Cruz shows he can get the votes in different areas. To think that Cruz would just be a tenth of the Tea Party vote is not impressive to the rest of the world, but having a bevy of endorsers from various backgrounds brings him up in the news mentions. Huckabee will announce May 5, and IMHO, it will just be to siphon off votes from evangelicals for Cruz.

    I believe the Republican will win, so right now is the time to support your candidate that you want to win. Don't cry about Cruz if you wait and then are forced to vote for Bush and a $billion dollar campaign. Hillary may even be indicted by the time of the election. so we will most likely win. There are several candidates that are impressive we have to vote for, but I think Cruz is absolutely the best one we have. I haven't found one thing he and I disagree on and he is honest enough to fulfill what he says he will do. I used to like Rubio, but then the immigration issue came and he dirtied his diaper.There are 10 or so I could stand to be POTUS, but Cruz is the most "Reagan like" that I see.

    Livingston was NOT a marginal store. Another thing I just thought of,...There are MANY vacant stores all over that have been used in the past. During the aftermath of Hurricane Rita, the old WalMart in my town was used by FEMA to sign up people for help. There is a clothing store in about 1/4 of it now. It would be easy to use the other part overnight. WalMart probably has hundreds of stores that are vacant after they moved to their new store. 5-6 store closings may just have been in strategic locations that had no “old” stores.

    I found a reporting website that showed a 30 sec video of the inside of the Livingston store with bare shelves. I don’t know they had a sale, but the shelves were bare and customers were stacked up like cord wood. Remember, they did all this in one day so there was no advertisements.

    Texas is a "Right to Work" state. I don't think it would be a union problem. The store that closed near to me was busy ALL the time. It could have lines at checkout at 3am. By closing, they are losing big money. It was by no means, a marginal store. besides, why not just say, "They were marginal stores and we closed them."It's not plumbing, it's not unions, it's not a marginal store. It was suggested that the $1 an hour raise for everyone could be paid for by closing these stores for 6 mo. but I can assure you they would lose more than they gained.

    I'm still leaning for a government reason, like storing illegals or storing dissidents. There isn't a whole lot more reasons they would chose to lose money like this. I'm also hearing the gubmint paid them a $billion to do this.If you start to see the stores empty the shelving and haul it off, we know it's not plumbing. Obama just has a year and a half to get done whatever he has to get done. I don't think whatever is done with the store will make the residents happy here. Livingston is too big to do without the Walmart.

    Good theory but there are no work permits scheduled for any of these stores that we know of. Looks like if it were truly plumbing problems, all permits and contractors would already be lined up jack hammering the floor. There is just a couple of cops blocking the doors. No workers. I think the pharmacy and the vision center is still open till Friday, but you have to get past the cops.

    If you had been following Alex what’s his name, you would know Obama plans to declare Marshall Law and put us in FEMA camps for his 3rd term. It is rumored the Walmarts will be used to store the people. Another one is they will use them to store the illegals that are crossing as we type, as they are out of rooms at the hotels they bought and schools they closed. I’m really more worried about the military out at our little single engine, crop dusting airfield with jet fuel. If they close my Walmart down, we will all starve here with one itty bitty store in town.

    People need to explain that libertarians are just immoral people that want a tax cut. You are seeing the libertarian foreign policy at work right now. I’ve tried to be a libertarian several times in my 63 years, but it always comes back to gay marriage, legal dope, and just plain anarchism. In the Dem party, a libertarian is called a “Blue Dog” Dem. In the Rep party, they are called “Rockefeller” republicans. In the Libertarian party, they are called losers.

    More importantly, he’s a Libertarian. I’ve been saying for decades now, Libertarians are Democrats that want a tax cut. You will find most of them agree with Obama on foreign policy also.

    I didn't see the perps new church address. Was he Baptist or non denom? I came out of Baptists to non denominational and they do background checks and get letters from previous employers. I suppose you could get into a cult meeting in a garage with no paperwork, but most churches of any size need something. This stuff is just too wide spread to ignore anymore. One problem, ( IMHO) is the spread of homosexuality. They are not chastised in the general public anymore, so you could get one applying for youth minister and not really find out if he/she doesn't volunteer info. It would be easy to have a job or come from teaching and pass yourself off as normal unless you have hurt someone and police were called. What we find is a youth leader that is watched like a hawk around young girls, but no one cares if he hangs with the boys, so no one watches. A female could start the girls softball team and no one would care,...easy pickings.

    I hate to say it but any adult WANTING to work with young people should be double watched no matter the setup.

    I disagree. It doesn't work anywhere else, so I don't think we can keep the plates in the air any longer than Argentina did. There may be a few differences because we can print our own money and the wold uses the dollar as the world currency, but eventually people will quit taking it for debts if we can't back it with nothing more than ink. Recently China, and countries in the ME with Brazil and a few others wanted to have their own currency and cut us out. Didn't work, but it may some day.

    Just think about borrowing from China with dollars and paying them back with money worth half. There is a certain pain level they will reject. They stopped buying bonds when QE started and haven't really stepped up as they had before. For years now, the FED prints money to buy our own debt and then expands the Balance sheet. At some point trillions will be foisted on the market for someone to buy. I don't think there will be any takers. Eventually the interest rates will have to rise just to get a bite. Then we have the scenario I was speaking of. We CAN"T pay higher interest rates. As the rates rise, the debt rises, until it get's ridiculous like maybe 12 percent and the interest on the debt is waaaay more than the whole budget. We owe more but get less until it's upside down.

    I don't know where the line is, but I know it's out there. As people say that's far enough, it quickly goes exponential. How long did it take for the markets to go from normal to 666 on the S&P? 5-6-700 points a day doesn't take long to go to zero.

    What people seem to not comprehend is how much interest we will pay if rates got to say 5%. It will be multiple trillions a year just in interest. Interest rates must stay below 2-3% forever just to survive. Try explaining $1 trillion to someone then say we have 18 of those we owe, soon to be $20 trillion +. We are done. It just depends on when the music stops because there are no more chairs.

    We now have a Muslim president, abortion on demand, and soon gay marriage in all 50 states. Do you see 2 Chron 7:14 happening before Sept 13, 2005? I don't think so. If America is destroyed, it will be because God is a homophobe, at war with women, and a racist.

    chuckles to Netz
    This is why this subject is very important to me. As we look at some churches,( see post 20), they teach error, but our biggest foe is in the universities. Many campuses are demonstrating against Israel right now. Their idiot professors are teaching the skulls full of mush that Israel is bad. I shudder at the new crop of citizens and their right to vote in the future. My sphere of influence is mostly in church. I teach Sunday school in my church and have seen some of these people. It is a challenge to give them the verses that make them mistaken and have them not reject it out of hand, for they have grown up with this taught to them even from family and their pastors. I have no say to the students and there are many more of them.

    It's sorta like cockroaches, you see one, you know that there are hundreds hiding in the walls, even if they keep it to themselves.

    If this isn't challenged right now, it will expand out of control very quickly. I think this discussion will move to the forefront when Bibi comes to speak. I welcome the chance to blog and respond to these misinformed people. If Bibi could forge a Birth Cert like Obama, I would vote for him for POTUS, but until then I will vote for Ted Cruz. I think it would be a good question for the Candidates to establish which ones have discernment and which ones don't. There could be some that are for Israel because they are democratic and an ally. IMO, it should be deeper than that. If they believe it is Biblical to support Israel, I think they would be steadfast in their support. I'm really not interested in being "fair" with others just to be fair. Support for Israel isn't negotiable for me. If you believe God goes before you in battle, you can't very well be victorious persecuting His children. This is the most worrisome thing for me today is have a country that has turned on Israel at the very time the End of Days are at hand. The US won't fare any better than Egypt or some other 3rd world snake pit. I don't think Americans believe they could suffer the same fate as Christians in Syria, but if you let this happen in your own home, how will we escape God's judgement on the land. Many don't understand the parable about separating sheep and goats. Jesus speaks of nations, not people. As a Christian, we will be saved when we die, but our nation will pay the price for allowing sin in the nation. A Christian may live and die and go to Heaven over a 70 year span, but judgement on the nation is today. That means your money, your children, grandchildren, and all your property are all under judgement, sorta like Job. Being a Christian in the US is a lot better than being a Christian in Egypt. If people don't believe that can happen to the US, all you have to do is look at Viet Nam. We won every battle yet lost the war to 5 ft rice farmers with inferior weapons. It is indispensable to be blessed by God.

    I'm not sure about others, but I think you will find the most dedicated supporters of Israel will be evangelical Christians.

    There are some people that question "Who killed Jesus" and argue over the Jews or Rome. Jesus specifically said, "No one takes My life, but I give it willingly." To argue over who killed Jesus misses the whole point. Either my sin killed Jesus, or I am going to God on my own righteousness. It has nothing to do with who drove the nails or who allowed Him to be Crucified. The whole point is my righteousness is as filthy rags and I need the sacrificial blood of Jesus, or I choose to meet God without a blood covering. Some Catholics seem to dislike Jews thinking people might blame them or something, I can't say why. Some white power bigots hate Jews because they are bigots and they have to hate someone. Then you have the Louis Farakhan types that are some Muslim hybrid negro fascist that have to hate Jews.

    I just got through reading a story about Michelle Malkin calling out a Jewish comedian over Christians with ashes on their foreheads on ash Wednesday. Malkin asked if she would make fun of Muslims on whatever holiday they don the ashes. The fight that ensued ended up with Malkin being accused of Antisemitism. The comedian was probably an atheist that was racially a Jew, but they wanted to make Malkin look like it was religious. Either way I'm sure she won't make fun of Muslims to get her throat cut.

    The anti Jewish Tweets were just horrendous.

    That's why I'm posting. Real Christians support Israel. If you don't,.... I question your faith. I pray that American Jews would stop supporting the Dems that want you dead. The northern Jews and Fla Jews ALL support Dems that want the Palestinians to push you into the sea. I can't figure out why they vote for them. Kinda like Catholics that vote for Dems that kill babies and support sodomites. Makes no sense.

    That was a quote from Obama's book "The Audacity of Hope, page 261. If anyone read it you would know what was coming. He was talking about the Japanese internment camps in WWII. He basically said if it came down to choosing Islam over Israel, he would choose Islam. Things become clearer when you know where his head is. The talking heads stare in confusion as he makes decisions about Muslims and make the wrong decision every time. It baffles them, but he already told us what he would do. That's how you get a deserter for 5 Taliban generals. That's how you get to snub Netenyahu. That's how you get soldiers withdrawn from ISIS battlegrounds. That's how you get Muslims in the White House on Ramadan. That's how you get invited to meetings that honor Palestinian terrorists and the LA Times squashes the pictures. That's why no one talks about him going to a madrassa as Barry Soretoro in Indonesia and signing in as a Muslim. That's how you live with a Muslim roommate in college and no one cares. That's how you can recite the evening call to prayer in Farsi and no one thinks anything of it.

    Everyone seems surprised and he's already told you he's a Muslim. It's also the point of my post that if you call yourself a Christian, YOU MUST SUPPORT ISRAEL BECAUSE GOD SAID TO. He doesn't support Israel so where does that leave Obama? You have to be careful saying such things or people will attack you like they attacked Guliani. Then they quote the only Bible verse they ever memorized, "Do not judge lest ye be judged" Jesus did say you can judge them by their fruit and I'm their fruit inspector.

    Yes, this is always a quandry for many Christians. They might say, “Well at least I’ll be outta here when the trouble comes.” They don’t seem to realize that we aren’t the children of God’s Wrath, but we can surely be the center of the wrath of the world. It will be a time like no other, and if you think of it, that’s pretty bad if you look at Noah, WWI, WWII, and other times like the depression and dust bowl. I can’t imagine WWII in Europe, but it will be worse than that. When God pours out the vials and seals and such, we won’t be here under His wrath, but Satan can get pretty bad when he sets his mind to it. Especially if he feels he can kill God’s people. Just think of being a Christian in Syria right now.

    Thanks for this!!!

    I started to write exactly that, but didn't want to go too long and I wanted to just make the point and go. I'm one of the few that teach the Lord's days in Leviticus 23 and their connection to God's people and what He was trying to teach us about prophesy.Many Christians are bored to tears and I'm so excited I can't stand still. To understand God has revealed His plan through these days makes the Bible come alive for me. If you look at Jesus through the eyes of a Jew, you see what He wads trying to tell the people. It can be shown that Jesus was born on Tabernacles, the Rapture will most likely happen on Trumpets, then Judgement Day on Yom Kippur, and Jesus returns to rule and rein on Tabernacles again. People always get crossways when I say Rapture happens on Trumpets because no one knows the day or the hour. They don't understand Trumpets is the day no one knows because it's 2 days. Ask a Jew the day no one knows and they know. It's like "turkey day" is Thanksgiving for us.

    I think what we see here is a lack of education on the middle ages and Crusades. For people that don't know who Biden is but can recite the latest Taylor Swift song, we know nothing about the Crusades, so when someone tells them we were brutal to the Muslims, they have no idea what happened the previous 400 years. Muslims, OTOH, are taught from birth that somehow we weren't supposed to be mad about the lands that were taken from us. This is the price of teaching them how to put condoms on banana's, but leave out history of the world. If you ask most kids about history, they don't know who we fought for our freedom in 1776, they don't know why we went to war in WWII, or who we fought, they don't know who won the Civil War, they just know the "Stars and Bars" is somehow bad. They believe the First Amendment is about free speech but deny we have freedom of religion or assembly. The second Amendment was a big mistake, and they have never heard of the other 8. When the 9th and 10th are explained to them, they still thing states rights is racist. This is the most useless, ignorant generation in American history.

    Many here may be saying,...not my kid, but ask them some questions and see. I chose home schooling mine and am forever grateful we made the right choice.

It was over 400 years of death and beheading’s before the first Crusade. Many of the Muzzie ships we sent to the bottom were filled with Christian slaves at the oars. Mohammed invented this crap in the 600’s and I believe the first Crusade was about 1000+. The Muszzies are mad because when we went to take back the Christian lands we killed women and children. They had been raping them and beheading them the whole time. It was called war in the middle ages. Today we have moved on with smart bombs and lasers, they still rely on beheading.

  • What Will It Take? (To reverse Obama's 'soft coup d'état)

    I'm old enough to remember the turmoil during the Clinton years. Everybody was crying about revolution then also. Just vote for Ted Cruz and he will solve a lot of what ails us. Either that or appoint me president. I don't think I could be elected if Cruz doesn't make it.

    When Clinton was being impeached and the Repubs folded like a lawn chair, people were threatening to move to Belize and Panama. If we do have a revolution be sure and get the ones with Obama stickers on the bumper first. That way we won't have to do it again for awhile. It usually take a 150 years or so for a majority to go slap dab nuts. You might run out of ammo in NYC and Chicago. Get the ammo in LA and use it on San Fran. A quick trip through Dearborn Mich might also be advised.

  • Will the Tea Party Abandon Ted Cruz Now That His Teen Pot Experimentation Has Been Exposed?

    That's nothing! I have a witness willing to testify that he saw Cruz tear a tag off of a mattress back in 1973. Mary Jane is a misdemeanor in most places and a mattress tag is a felony. Of course Clinton raped and murdered and that didn't seem to make a difference to anyone. I tried my outrage switch over this and it just doesn't work. The same people feigning outrage did cocaine and heroin back in the day and probably have meth in their pocket right now. I never heard back from PETA about eating dogs by pols, so I guess I'll wait for the next "SHOE to DROP".

  • Turn Off Your Heat: Living in a cold home will make you a healthier, stronger, better person

    As a child, we had a heater in the living room, but it got to the 40’s sometimes in the rest of the house. When we got ready for school, we would get in front of the heater to dress and put our clothes on the heater for 30 seconds or so before we put them on. We had no air conditioner till the 60’s, so we slept with the windows open and fans blowing. I was tougher then. I still sleep with the thermostat at 69 now. At 70-71 degrees, I kick the covers off and figure why spend the money for a couple of degrees. I would go to about 66, but my wife would get the rest of my money in the divorce.

    I didn’t watch every single speaker at the King speek-a-thon, but Cruz got the only standing ovation I saw. I think Newt may have got one also, but I’ve already erased the DVR. The crowd seem to like Palin, but I thought it was flat. Unusual for her. Perry was fair but it seemed like fake animation to get the crowd going. I don’t think it will work long term. Carly Fiorina did better than I thought she would, but I don’t think it will ever happen. Mitt and Bush will get their clocks cleaned by Cruz, IMHO.

    Yes, If coal was readily available, that’s what I would concentrate on. In fact, there was a website a couple of years ago you could by a small unit( maybe 10x10x 12 ft tall) that you could have on your own property. Hitler ran his whole war on coal and did pretty darn good with it. My dad flew B-24’s to Ploesti to blow up the oil refineries, but stopping coal was much tougher. There is no doubt coal could supply all your needs with some land and some automation to feed the plant.

    Most homes have a 200 amp main in the box. Lets say you think you can make it on under 100 amps. My 5kw generator puts out 30 amps under full load, so that equals 15kw to run a normal house. Of course there are times you don't run a tenth of that, but you never know. Now consider what you would have to have to run even 10kw to get a few window units and a couple of bulbs and other toys. You need a pond the size of a football field to get the head pressure needed to turn a 10kw under load. You need a yard full of solar panels to get even 3kw with batteries. Then think about maintenance.

    IMO, the way yo go would be to start to build a water converter to H2 and save it in a tank during quiet times and use it when you need it. There is a web site dedicated to off the grid somewhere in New Jersey where a guy did it. It was about $250k investment, but he even ran his boat and cars on H2. The most obvious problem was the acre or so of solar panels on his house and yard.( God forbid a hail storm) How long would it take to pay $250k @ 271 a month. If you can get nat gas to your home, that's the answer. Nat gas will be cheap for the near future. Coal would even be cheaper but that means a fire in the house again.

    The only reason there are any fond memories of Clinton are newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution. I can’t understand anyone not shouting that from the rooftops every time it’s brought up. Remember “The era of Big Government is over”? He crapped his diaper with tax hikes, slowed the economy, and brought in a Republicans landslide. It was smooth sailing except for Monica after that. He was basically a lame duck after 2 years. He agreed with the Republicans and was allowed to keep his pants down and ride in a big jet for 6 years.

    Let me guess, it takes 50gigs of memory, four 7 core chips running @5ghtz and a 4 terrabyte disk, with a $500 video card to play a movie. Oh and it checks email and posts on Face Book.

    If you stop and think about it XP runs everything just fine except they quit using IE after 8. I just don't see the need for much more than what we have right now unless you render video or something. Now if it blocks spam and malware, I'm in.
