There are so many people in desperate need for acceptance. Some cannot tolerate any form of correction.  That need for acceptance is so deep they react violently.  What I’ve noticed in people like this is that they are totally self absorbed and they are blind to it.  As long as everything is going like they want they are kind of ok. But one observance of something they do wrong causes a severe blow up.

I’ve also noticed some seem so afraid they are going to miss out on things, in particular food. They will even take things off your plate while you are not looking, because they are so afraid you might get more than they do.  They will even hide food.  Also they will demand everything back they ever gave you, or demand more than their fair share. They will lie to get their way; they will cheat, and then make the other person out to be the bad guy.

There are (2) types here; one gorges themselves and the other will fill up their plate full and only eat a tiny portion and throw the rest away. Those that gorge will come home with snacks and food from the store and try to eat it all right then.  I think the reason they gorge themselves is to sooth or hide their deep rooted issues.  They burst out in rage and say they do not care what anyone thinks of them when truly they are dying inside for acceptance.  What these people don’t realize is that the only acceptance they need comes from God and for them to accept God’s Son Jesus.  Jesus is our acceptance!  The only approval from Father God is His Son Jesus and what He did on the cross!  When God looks at us as believers He only sees all the good His Son did and the fact that we accept it is all the approval, acceptance any of us will ever need!

These people spew out abuse on everyone that doesn’t accept them. This person is Not walking in the will of God!  Another thing they do to sooth their conscience is discredit the person who corrected them.  They will harm them any way they can.  They will slander that person, then they feel justified.  The person slandered is devastated and the unaccepted person does not care at all!   The unaccepted one is now done with the person they hurt and more and more roots of bitterness are planted each time they destroy someone with words.  These people usually do not have any close friends.  They are never willing to look within to see what they are doing to hurt people and to get the help they really need.  Somehow they know their wrong but will not try to seek the help they truly need.

Social Media for these people is detrimental, because they believe all these 100’s of people are their true friends, and will lose their families over people that chances are they will never meet. Some have gone to the lows of taking pictures of their victims and put them out for all to see.  So many young girls have been literally destroyed online and many have committed suicide over it.  Not all social media is bad there are many caring people that will pray for you and be there for you. It is all in how the people who feel unaccepted use it to hurt and destroy people that make it dangerous.  It is kind of like taking all guns away so the vulnerable

are unprotected while shooters go on a rampage and kill.

It’s those few that do evil and mess everything up for the innocent.

If you are one of the people who obsess over acceptance and this has helped you see it. Please for God’s sake and your families seek the help you need.

War, What is it All About

I tell you and you forget, I teach you and you remember, I involve you and you understand.

The Author


 II Timothy 2:4   “Is not a Soldier bound in matters of the world to please him who has chosen him?”

War is not about killing, but about protecting freedoms, families and nations!

This memorial day I want to thank all the soldiers in every war, that have sacrificed their lives, families, and time for us!  You are very special!  You are never forgotten.  Daily in this country someone is praying for you.  Groups at churches have special meetings just to pray for you.

Those who would undermine war and what it really stands for are pardon me, but ignorant.  Every war was for the sake of freedom and freedom comes with a price.  You can’t have freedom without fighting for it, because somewhere someone wants to take it from you.

Those who demonstrate would not have the freedom to do so had it not been for soldiers fighting to give them that freedom.

Wars are also for our protection.  There are people who would like to kill us and wipe us off the face of the earth.  How many out there screaming have actually served time?  Animal kingdoms protect their domains as well.

Those screaming the loudest against war, lay down then and let whatever happens to you happen.  Let the robber take your purse or wallet.  Let the hater kill your innocent children.  Give up your home and all your possessions to the one that is trying to steal them.  Get out of your gas guzzling car and give it to the one who is fighting you to get it, or SHUT UP!

Now can we get on with living and trying to establish some peace in our Nation?  Now, you know what war is all about.

Where is everyone’s mind?  Yes on gasoline prices.  I wonder what would happen if many Americans started buying horses and buggies.   Hmmm might not be a bad idea.

Of course then the government would find a way to raise prices on grain to feed the horses.

What if American’s formed co ops?  Like those with many acres of land would help supply the grain & let folks rent their land to let horses feed on their grass.  Oh my wonder what would happen to all the Iranians and their oil?  Gee sorry guys we don’t need you much anymore.

The average price for a gallon of gas nationally was $1.89 a gallon when George W. Bush left office. The average price per gallon is now $3.73.  But in many states, the price for a gallon of gas has smashed through the $4 barrier.

I just paid $4.25 today for gas here in La Grange, Illinois. It’s now $4.57 per gallon in Chicago. In California, the price is approaching $5 a gallon.

Experts believe the average national price for a gallon of gas could hit $5 by Memorial Day.  According to: (

You can say what you will, but this is all a battle between the sons of Abraham in the bible.  Sarah Abraham’s wife could not conceive and she couldn’t wait on the promised child so she sent her handmaid into her husband so she could have a child for her.  Hagar the maid servant did have a son Ishmael….I’ll fast forward.  Then in Sarah’s old age in her late 90’s God did give her finally the promised child Isaac.  Now Ishmael branched off and became the nation of Iran.  Isaac the promised one became Israel.   Hence this battle between the two has been going on for centuries and is still going on today.  You can read about it your selves in Genesis beginning in Chapter 16.

Gasoline prices hit a nationwide average of $3.65 a gallon in the week through Feb. 20, government data show, close to the $4-a-gallon level that is widely considered the point at which oil prices become a political problem. The price is higher in some parts of the country, like California. While U.S. oil production has been rising in recent years, the oil prices are set in a global market, which complicates efforts by U.S. politicians to come up with domestic solutions.

Democrats on Capitol Hill have begun urging Mr. Obama to release oil from the reserves. Republicans have said the problem is the Obama administration’s energy policy, and have highlighted his decision to hold off on approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which would bring oil from the tar sands of Canada to U.S. refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.

Facing high prices “every time you go get your car filled up, it’s going to be because of President Obama’s in action,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R, S.C.).

Political Battle over Oil Prices Heats Up

By Siobhan Hughes

Why don’t more scientists rise up and figure out a way for us to crawl out from under the Iranian control.  Yes, I said control!  That is what they are doing.  They have us by the neck and we just keep letting them tighten.   Anybody with me on this and do you want to make something happen?  Let’s do it!

Genetically Modified Organisms

I tell you and you forget, I teach you and you remember, I involve you and you understand.

I am appalled and horrified at what goes on without our knowledge.  If you can grow your own vegetables and herbs you will be much better off.

Maybe even get together in your neighborhoods and start a co-op garden.

We have to start changing the way we do things in this country in order to be safe.  Take some time and listen to the video.

Now I hope everyone understands why I am so for helping our farmers!

We could pay the Farmers as neighborhoods to grow more crops for us.  Kind of like you pay for your Home Owners Associations.   Let’s get busy working together to come up with better solutions.

Monsanto: Dangers of Genetically Modified Corn

by Dark government website:

Everything You HAVE TO KNOW about Dangerous Genetically Modified Organisms

Why GM Corn is Dangerous

French Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini, molecular endocrinologist at the University of Caen and a member of two French government commissions evaluating GM food, found that MON 810, along with several other varieties of GM crops, showed statistically significant problems in animal studies that regulators have not pursued with follow-up research.

Seralini said the effects of the GM crops were similar to that of pesticides, including inflammation disorders, and problems with livers and kidneys, two major organs involved with detoxification.

Further biology professor Bela Darvas of Hungary‘s Debrecen University discovered that Monsanto’s Mon 810 is lethal to two Hungarian protected species and one insect classified as rare. Now Monsanto refuses to give him any more Mon 810 corn to use in his tests. They also refused his request for Mon 863, another GM variety.

So not only has MON 810 been shown to cause serious damage to animals, but it may also wipe out protected plant and insect species. Of course, adding to the potential devastation is the fact that corn is a wind-pollinated plant, which means it depends on the wind for pollination.

While growers of GM food often say their crops will be contained and unable to contaminate nearby fields, from an environmental perspective contamination between GM and non-GM crops is generally acknowledged to be unavoidable.

Really what can stop wind, tornadoes or other weather from blowing or transporting GM pollen or seeds over onto non-GM crops?

Not a whole lot.

So by planting even a few thousand acres of land with GM crops, there’s a very real possibility that a much greater area could become contaminated with the altered seeds, and subject to the potential health and environmental insults as a result.

Are you ready now to do something?

UN: World lacks enough food, fuel as population soars  

‘To achieve sustainability, a transformation of the global economy is required’

cites report

LONDON: The world is running out of time to make sure there is enough food, water and energy to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population and to avoid sending up to 3 billion people into poverty, a U.N. report warned on Monday.

As the world’s population looks set to grow to nearly 9 billion by 2040 from 7 billion now, and the number of middle-class consumers increases by 3 billion over the next 20 years, the demand for resources will rise exponentially.

Even by 2030, the world will need at least 50 percent more food, 45 percent more energy and 30 percent more water, according to U.N. estimates, at a time when a changing environment is creating new limits to supply.

Thought I would let you take a look at this headline before I get started.  I’m going to cry out again for the government to help farmers!  Give them more land, money to keep our country going. Lot’s of money being spent on ridiculous things such as:

  • Almost a decade ago, the federal government dropped $100 million for an Earth-monitoring satellite that never made it into space. Today it sits in a closet in Maryland.

Cost to taxpayers for storing it: $1 million a year. And that’s just what’s hiding in one closet. Who knows what’s in the rest of them? Reader’s Digest decided to find out.

By Ryan Grim with Joseph K. Vetter from Reader’s Digest January 2008

The Government is wasting your tax dollars.

  • The Medicare program pays as much as eight times the cost that other federal agencies pay for the same drugs and medical supplies.
  • The federal government cannot account for $24.5 billion spent in 2003.
  • The federal government spends $23 billion annually on special interest pork projects such as grants to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or funds to combat teenage “goth” culture in Blue Springs, Missouri.
  • The Defense Department wasted $100 million on unused flight tickets, and never bothered to collect refunds even though the tickets were reimbursable.

And here is the one that goes along with what I am talking about. Heritage Foundation (By Brian Riedl)

  • The Conservation Reserve program pays farmers $2 billion annually to not farm their land.
  • Massive farm subsidies also go to several members of Congress, and celebrity “hobby farmers” such as David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Scottie Pippen, and former Enron CEO Ken Lay.

Is anybody besides me tired of this government bureaucracy?  Something seriously needs to be done.  Call your congress person.  Lobby your rights to be heard.  We need our farmers!  Don’t let them become extinct.

Excuse me but I thought prisons were for punishment.  If you commit a horrendous crime you should not be allowed any privileges.  The whole reason for having prisons is to punish the offender, not reward them!  I find this extremely appalling, that a prisoner would be allowed to sue to get any type of privilege.

For those of you who are not privy to this story.  A crazed lunatic that killed his wife in 1993 wants the state of Virginia to pay for his sex change.  What in the world is this country coming to?

If the state surrenders to this transvestite, what will happen next?  If you love this country then PLEASE let your feelings in this matter be known.

You usually do not catch me being speechless on a matter, but one of this magnitude, almost has me to that point.  What the state needs to do and all the correctional institutions in this country is to stop being stupid and say no to anything a criminal ask for!  They should not have any rights.  They gave those rights up when they broke the law.

The almighty dollar seems to be where the countries allegiance is going to.  Instead of In God we Trust on the dollar bill it might as well say in the dollar we trust.

Our complacency is going to be the ruin of this country!  Again I cry “What are prisons for?

As I start this commentary I’d like to mention once again.  This is my opinion based on the word of God.  It is my freedom in this country to have my own opinion and you are free to have yours.  However, unless we hold these truths to be self-evident: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (Declaration of independence)

Just who is this creator?  The One and Only Jehovah God!  Back to the point unless we hold these truths to be self-evident, as the founding fathers declared we will lose; Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness!  You are welcome to embark on this journey with me; it is after all YOUR choice.

I will begin with this scripture: Wise as serpents but gentle as a dove: Matthew 10:16 Jesus speaking, “Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.”

Not everyone is peaceful, and as this scripture points out: We will have wars & rumors of wars. Mark 13:7-8  “And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.  Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

Matthew 24:6-8 “And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.   Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.  But all this is only the first of the birth pains; with more to come.”  Not one but two of the disciples wrote this. (Inspired by the Holy Spirit), hence it must be important for us to take note.  To say that we are to embrace everyone is a contradiction of the word.  Matthew, Mark & Luke were told by Jesus that if the people in the towns they went to tell the message’s Jesus was teaching didn’t accept it, to wipe even the dust off their feet as the exited the city.  This was to be a testament against them.  This scripture also leads into the Matthew 10:16 verse of being wise as a serpent yet harmless as a dove.  This is not to say we aren’t supposed to love and pray for everyone.  We are to love the sinner, but not the sin.  This is a fallen world, because Eve disobeyed God and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  We have bad news about this and good news. 

John 16:33 “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”  This is Jesus speaking again. Part of that tribulation is what we read above; “there shall be famines and earthquakes in diver’s places. But all these things are the beginning of travail.” Here is something that gives me great comfort: The battle is the Lords and we that are in Christ Jesus are victorious: II Chronicles 20: He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Just like the days of Noah so shall the coming of the son of man be.  Drunkenness, adultery, incest, hate, envy, jealousy, back biting, etc. When Noah completed the ark and shut the doors the rain came.  The flood began to arise and the people were drowning.  They laughed and mocked Noah before the flood for building the ark.  Now they were beating on the door to get in and the door was shut!  There is an appointed time for all things to come to an end.  Jesus will step out of the clouds and gather His bride (The Church, body of believers).  Bible truth read it for your selves.

There were ten virgins in this next story Five were wise and five were foolish.   In Matthew 25:1-13 Jesus said, “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.  Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.  The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil.  When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.  At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’  All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps.  Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’  “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’  But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked.  Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’   “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’  So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.”

Do we want positive changes in our country? I’m hoping the answer is a resounding YES! If so, then Let us be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

Here again is another controversial issue, American Renaissance and the NAACP.  In Charlotte, a NC a hotel canceled the group American Renaissance, because of the protection of their customers.  This Supremacy group is screaming that their constitutional rights have been violated.   Mr. Taylor has one statement I will have to agree with “You can imagine the outcry if two white city councilman had attempted to squelch a meeting of the NAACP.”  Oh in my opinion this would have screamed discrimination all the way across the country.  And when the NAACP got wind of the schools taking Martin Luther King Day as a snow day they went bonkers.  Mr. Randolph (President) said we here in Charlotte were “A Racial Bastian”

It seems to me both groups are full of hate!  I will have to say in defense of the white folks and it is not because I am one; You African Americans have a whole month in February devoted to Black History Month.  Have we stopped that?  There is no whole month dedicated to White History Month.  Nor is there one dedicated to the American Indian, who was here before any of you!  I believe the Indians should have more rights than you all!

Again this is a blog and I do have a right to my opinion.  If you do not agree that is your right.  But I do think we all need to step back and take a look at human beings in general.  Don’t we all hold the right to a peaceful society?  Let’s grow up and work on that one!
