"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." James Madison

Will you Vote Democrat or Republican?

I see the dichotomy of our two main political parties as this:

The Democratic Party seeks to raise taxes and make the federal government ultimately responsible for our well being,

The Republican Party seeks to lower taxes and limit government thus making us responsible for our own actions and behavior, and ultimately our well being.

Personal accountability of one's behavior is a Christian principle that does not bode well with those who would choose to place blame on the Government for their woes.

I see great difficulty in holding to the ideology of the Democratic Party while holding on to Christian values. One either chooses to be accountable for one's behavior, or attempt to place blame on someone else.

To quote the Apostle Paul from 1 Cor. 13:11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

I believe it is time for the Democratic Party to Grow Up.

Scientific Results

Though I am a Christian, I believe Scientific experiments continue to prove the Bible. One in particular is how trusting the human species can be, as demonstrated in this video.

A Post For My Brothers, Both Active and Retired

Brian Chontosh
What is more outrageous than what Capt Brian Chontosh did on March 25, 2003 on Highway 1 toward Ad Diwaniyah while a platoon commander with the Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, is that some of you are hearing about this here for the first time.

At any other time in our nation’s brilliant military history, Brian Chontosh would not be serving in anonymity somewhere in a state side duty position. Rather he would be telling his story and selling war bonds, while Hollywood executives fought over the honor of telling his story. Some may have recognized Captain Chontosh from Greg Palkot’s feature story on Fox News’ coverage of the November 2004 battle of Fallujah. There Chontosh prowled the deadly streets with his rifle company, crushing the terrorists who had –until then- laid siege to the city.

However, Chontosh’s first battlefield heroics occurred in his first deployment to Iraq during the invasion and liberation of the country. On March 25, 2003, then First Lieutenant Chontosh, recognized his unit was caught in a “kill zone” on Highway One leading to Ad Diwaniyah in the initial campaign to Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After punching his vehicle through a breech, he was immediately taken under withering machine gun fire from a crew served weapon in a trench. Chontosh plowed toward the machine gunner, trusting his .50 caliber gunner to silence the enemy, which was done almost immediately.

Chontosh then dismounted his vehicle and armed with only his M16A2 and a M9 pistol began to systematically clear the trench that his vehicle was now inside. With a complete disregard for his own personal safety, Chontosh twice picked up discarded enemy rifles and continued his ferocious attack.

When one of his Marines following behind found an RPG, Chontosh decided to personally use it to destroy another unlucky clump of enemy soldiers thinking they could overpower the brazen Marine. Essentially any Saddam loyalist in the way of Brian Chontosh that day was extremely unlucky.

When his dedicated and bold personal attack had ended, he had cleared over 200 meters of the enemy trench and lying behind him and at his feet were the remains of over 20 enemy fighters. For these actions, Brian Chontosh was awarded the second highest award given for combat valor, The Navy Cross.

The DNC still seems to think so.

Life Without limbs -Nick Vujicic

So this is what he does for a living.

He is funny, clever, and smart.

Life Without limbs -Nick Vujici

I used to complain about loosing a finger, about other health ailments, and about not being able to touch my toes. If things get a little difficult, I'm the first to whine. And I am ashamed.

'Gay' groups: We have rights to your children!

Brief filed in lawsuit over school promotion of homosexuality
Posted: October 6, 20061:00 a.m. Eastern
© 2006

A collection of 'gay' organizations has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a Massachusetts lawsuit, claiming they have every right to teach their doctrine to grade-school students.

Parental rights, according to the brief filed this week, "have never meant that a parent can demand prior notice and the right to opt a child out of mere exposure to ideas in the public schools that a parent disapproves of."

That includes, according to the brief, religious or any other ideas.

The new brief was filed in a Massachusetts District Court lawsuit by Lexington parent David Parker, whose civil rights case is pending, by the Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, Massachusetts Teachers Association, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and others.

"The amici organizations urge this court to grant the school defendants' motion to dismiss because the scope of the rights of religious freedom and parental control over the upbringing of children, as asserted by the plaintiffs, would undermine teaching and learning in the Lexington public schools," the brief alleges.

California's Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger just vetoed a bill (SB 1437) that would allow people of history to be defined by the sexual preference rather than their achievements. I had previously coorsponded with the Governor's office and received 2 replies; the first just after the original email I sent, and the second just after the Governor vetoed the bill.

Clearly, this is another attempt to redefine parents responsiblities, and once again, the ACLU steps up to support criminal behavior.

Ann Coulter Under Attack - Part One

Another example of the liberal idea of free speech.

"As long as you agree with me, you can say anything you want. If you don't agree with me, you have no right to respond to what my free speech has afforded me.

I can criticize the president, but you cannot criticze me because I'm a 'victim'".

Part 2: Clinton Interview On Fox News

OK, here it is again.

He stated dick Clark was demoted on one occasion, and fired on another occasion. Then, toward the end of the interview he stated there has only been one person incharge of anti-terrorism from Reagan to 9/11; Richard Clark.

Fact, He was still in charge of the anti terrorism department.

He also said he left a comprehensive report, however, the report mentioned UBL 4 times and never made reference to the Taliban.

Rosie O’Donnell: The Second Amendment is 'Not Really a Right'

Posted by Scott Whitlock on October 3, 2006 - 18:23.

Well known liberal Rosie O’Donnell used the shooting at an Amish school in Pennsylvania as a springboard to promote gun control. O’Donnell, who famously sparred with Tom Selleck (video), stated on Tuesday's edition of ABC's "The View" that the event should spur tighter restrictions:

O’Donnell: "I think the horror of imagining six to thirteen-year-old girls handcuffed together and shot execution style, one by one, is perhaps enough to awaken the nation that maybe we need some stricter gun control laws."

This quickly led to an exchange with the program’s token conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, in which O’Donnell asserted that there is no right to own a gun:

Hasselbeck: "So you can’t- You can't take way the right to, to bear arms."

O’Donnell: "Well, it’s not really a right. There’s debate as to what that-"

Hasselbeck: "It is a right. It’s in our Constitution. It’s the Second Amendment."

O’Donnell: "Well, let’s talk instead of yell."

Hasselbeck: "I’m not yelling."

O’Donnell quickly expanded the discussion into an attack on the NRA:

No time to comment other than to say Rosie is auditioning for a late model hot air baloon ride.
