"People like us, you and me, raised in the understanding that we are free, that we have inalienable rights, and that the institutions of this country have our best interests at heart, will tend to tie ourselves in knots rather than contemplate the idea those authorities might actually be working against us now. I took that thought of benevolent, well-meaning authority for granted for most of my life, God help me. Not to put too fine a point on it, I was as gullible as the next chump...
It is hard to think the unthinkable. It’s hard to think that all of it, all the misery, all the suffering of the past and to come might just be about money, greed and power. It is hard to tell yourself you’ve been taken for a fool and taken for a ride. It’s hard, but the view from the other side is worth the effort and the pain. Open your eyes and see." ~Neil Oliver

"I am a member of the world population, a world population that observes from some distance and, as a member of this world population, these are the options:
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:7-10
Yes, indeed it was.
This video from California blessed me. I sensed that "where the Spirit of The Lord is, there is Liberty." Patriots have often been silent, but not last night.

Excellent interview with Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
When asked what can be done about the rioters and unrest, Dr. Carson says this:
You may be a little surprised at my answer. The answer lies in each one of us. Those of us who actually love this country, love the freedoms that we have, wanna pass them on to our children, are gonna have to stop being quiet...you've got to be brave and stand up for what you believe in; otherwise, it will be taken away from you.

*A moving tribute to Ravi Zacharias by Kaleigh McEnany.*
At one point, with tears in her eyes, Kayleigh says something like we don't have to grieve because we are Christians.
If I were able to add a gentle admonition, I would say that The Word does not tell us not to grieve, it's just that Christians grieve differently. Our experience on earth is, after all, much different from Ravi Zacharias's in Glory.
Comfort to all who are grieving this great man's passing... The Lord is very near.

I love this gal! She can be pleasant and snarky at the same time and she doesn't allow the media to push her around. (I am not a fan of most media. They are truly embarrassing. Not many real journalists left. The genuine ones make a very short list.)

Great Interview with President Trump from Pat Robertson of CBN. Pat may be elderly, but he is a sharp cookie and he knows what's going on. Further, he actually allowed President Trump to answer, which allowed me to learn many new things I'd never learn from the Fake News Outlets.

This has been a difficult week in the political sphere. The tone of political discourse has become totally foul and ugly and I blame many on the left for it. The problem seems to be that we can't courteously disagree. I am in complete agreement with the following quotes from Mark Steyn and I have provided the video sources from which they come. I double dog dare you to listen.

To all the politicians, donors and special interests, hear these words from me today: there is only one core issue in the immigration debate and it is this: the well-being of the American people. Nothing even comes a close second. ~ Donald Trump

As more folks find this place, I thought it would be interesting to share a post from 2010 that illustrates my evolution from being on the front page to now when I keep things on a back page. I do this so no one feels compelled to comment. (Comments are not allowed here.) We have been through (and still are in) a period of time when many are quite certain that punishment has been doled out to those who speak up in a political way.
I am, by nature, a political gal. I enjoy the discussion and I like to keep up with what goes on. If we visited in person, you'd know that quite quickly. So"Let's Get Political" is my way of not being too forceful on the average reader. For some crazy reason, I have attracted a lot of liberal leaning readers whom I love, but with whom I do not agree. Consider this page my attempt to be true to who I am.

So you have found IT again. Yes, this is the repository for my thoughts through the coming four years: 2013–2017. My thoughts will be placed here in this one post with a date. The ticker of the national debt will continue to fire off at the bottom. Newer posts will be at the top. If you want to comment about anything you see here, feel free to email me as comments here are closed.
Often, one can settle down after an election when realizing that, while things may not be to one's liking, everything will level out. Not this time. This time there has been a decided shift and if you are a reader of persons, you know this well. You, too, can hear and see it in "the tone." Be wary, pay close attention, and stay well.
