"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
-- John Quincy Adams
I am a Judeo-Catholic. Many dont think one can be both Jewish and Catholic that one must be one or the other. They dont think you can be half and half. They think that you are Jewish/Christian with Christian/Jewish customs tacked on.
However, one can be both fully Jewish and fully Catholic. For me, the identity and spiritual essence is so united that I have no confusion in being a Catholic Jew. I find if I cease my Jewish observance, I also end up ceasing Catholic observance and I become very unhappy and also vice versa.
I like to think of myself as a true melting pot in the fact that my family has a little bit of everything. (Unlike Zeros family, we are an assimilated melting pot.) I learned this from my British Catholic mother and my German Jewish father. They met in Israel and later moved to KC. After I grew up, they moved back to Israel and still live near Haifa. I left to study legal and religious history, where I met, argued, hated, and then ultimately fell in love with (and finally converted) my beautiful Palestinian ex-Muslim wife. She is now a member in both the Jewish and Catholic faiths), and teaches my 5 kids what it means to be Catholic Jews.
I am also have an affinity for the old world, especially Great Britain and Germany. I would like to see my heritage thrive, I love how British and German culture has shaped America - from the language to the beer! I am a Tory-supporting Jacobite; have a soft spot for monarchies (perhaps because my mother is descended from the House of Stuart).
AM YISRAEL CHAI
Obama says he wants to help us here in the Midwest. Well, if he really wanted to, he would take Sebelius on his flaming plane ride downward.

Sarah has Lithuanian Jewish Blood, her inner Hebrew speaks through her, and it speaks for a Love of Israel.
Sarah Palin's mother (Sally Sheigam) was of Lithuanian Jewish heritage and so were both of her mothers parents (Louise Sheigam and Shmuel Sheigam). Her maternal grandfather, Schmuel Sheigam, was a Lithuanian Jew born in 1912 in Vilkaviskis, Lithuania, 91.2 miles west of Vilnius. The Sheigam family immigrated to America, via Hamburg, Germany in 1915 because of WWI. The grandmother was was originally named Gower. Her father Chuck Heath can be considered of Jewish blood because it is believed his mother, Beatrice Coleman, was of Jewish decent. Further information on Governor Palin's ancestors can easily be found in the vital records in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives in Vilnius.
http://www.archyvai.lt/ The Archives holds birth, marriage, divorce, and death records for the Lithuanian Jewish community from 1851 until 1915 when the Jews were required to leave the country because of World War I. They are in 18th Century Cyrillic script and Yiddish Many of these records include the mother's maiden name and town of registration.
At Ellis Island Immigration Center, the name was entered as Sheeran, a standard practice of the time when immigration officers were unable to understand non-English speaking immigrants. Sheeran is a common Irish name but members of the Sheigam family are buried in the Jewish cemetery at Budezeriai near Vilkaviskis:in Lithuania.

You can tell someones sincerity by their stance they have with Sarah and Being Pro-Life and Kirsten is one of the best! :D
Not a mainstream thought, I know: When Mashiach comes, Christians will think he is Yeshua and Jews will know he is Mashiach. One and the same. So in the end, it really doesnt matter because well all be Jews anyway.

As a number of longtime readers of LR are aware, I had the pleasure in my life of spending 2 hours with Sarah Palin waving signs on a busy median, on a very busy street in Anchorage in 2006. She was running for election to Governor. I was up there petitioning to repeal the Anchorage smoking ban on bars and bingo halls. (We got on the ballot but lost hard 70 to 30%). Jason Dowell, then Libertarian Party of Alaska Chair, and I were driving on North Star. We saw the Palin crew on all four corners, (at least 40 of them.) Jason looked at me, and said, I'm endorsing her. I told Jason, let's make it official and wave some signs with them for a few minutes.
We were whisked to the median with Sarah. She hugged Jason and shouted to all her supporters, "the Libertarians are endorsing me... We've got the Libertarian support." Jason was then right by her side for the next 2 hours waving signs. I was off a bit with some of Sarah's other family members.
What I recall? She is very petite. She's very bubbly, and always upbeat. What you see on TV is pretty much what I saw. And yes, she's stunningly beautiful.
And now a reporter for the Daily Caller, Mark Judge gets pretty much the same impression of Sarah, after only a few seconds. He shouts out the question on everyone's mind. Sarah, who's your favorite band?
Here's his lead-up:
As word flashed through the crowd that Palin had appeared and the mob began to crowd her, I knew I had to act fast. I also realized this was an epochal moment. Conservatives are always talking about how the culture of a nation is more important than economics or health care policy or the kind of cars we drive. Rock and roll is interwoven into the history of America, and a persons views on it, even if that person is a famous politician, can be very revealing.
And the answer everyone's been waiting for:
Whos my favorite band? she repeats. She leans forward and then it comes: VAN PALIN, LIKE VAN HALEN! And shes gone.
I was also taken aback by her looks. Sarah Palin is the kind of woman for whom the term stunner was invented, which is one of the many reasons liberals hate her.
Yup! And this is another reason the left-libertarians despise her like their liberal allies.
Palin is still a humdinger at 47. And she's got pizzaz, spunk and glamour.
To left-libertarians it's not about looks, culture, image, celebrity. To the Cato, Reason, Ron Paulists and most of the Libertarian Party crowd, it's all about "the issues."
This is a big item that separates us right-libertarians from the rest of the libertarian movement. We do care about culture, celebrity, image, other matters than just someone's position on monetary policy, and privatization of local garbage collection. Libertarianism is all-encompassing for us. It's a lifestyle choice.
Sarah Palin gets it. She epitomizes right-libertarian on the issues, and most assuredly culture. Her answer on favorite rock band of all time, confirms that.
Van Halen? You betcha! My all-time favorite band as well, Sarah.
So I guess you could describe me best as a Palintarian.
A Sarah Palin Libertarian.

In the 1800s and up until the 1990s, young men were to busy working to feel alienated and angsty and too tired to go on shooting sprees. They also put all their excess energy into pursuing a mate, getting her pregnant, and then working even more to support the baby.
Rove hates the TEA Party and Conservatives, which is why he's employed at Fox News. Rove is the epitome of squishy, big tent, moderate R.
Take Sarah Palin for example. Rove never had any use for her. Never had any kind words for her. Why not? She was the most popular and beloved and yet he viewed her in the same frame as the lamestream. Never stood up for her. Never came to her rescue.
Well, he never came to President Bush's rescue either. The great architect with the white board stands for nothing. Not God, not our Constitution, nothing. He doesn't win elections either. Not since Bush's in 2004.
AND, because he didn't stick up for Bush, Rove is highly responsible for the GOP losing the House in '06, so let's put Rove in his proper place: MENDACIOUS LOSER.
Rove is a perfect fit at Faux News, but idiot Fox doesnt realize that both Conservatives and democrats hate him. Hes a true loser all the way around. He gains them NOTHING.
No D.C. B.S. With Her!
Here is some Photo's she posted on Facebook (although I don't do facebook Sarah is still public so I can follow her :D)
Please SHARE this image if you agree that we need to rebuild our country!
A Toast to those who Wish Her Well, and those who don't can go to Hell.
