It rings true to me that He was and is the Creator of the Cosmos and all that is came from the words in His mouth in Genesis. Some crime can be pinned on the church at Rome and other professing Christians including a good many of the protestant organizations for viscous excesses and organizational selfishness furthering their own ends. They have put the words of their leaders over the past few hundred years on a level with Holy Scripture and many even claim to represent Him on earth. Meaningless words of frail but egotistical human beings that lead to error after error.
In the main the devote followers in (and out) of these political religious organizations posing as churches of the Jesus Christ of the Bible are humble caring worshipers who assimilate His traits and promote Him and His Kingdom. They shy away from placing any other than the Creator in a position of worship. Yes He was and is the person He held Himself out to be and He will judge those who have brought error and confusion to His Words in Holy Writ! He was conceived by the Holy Spirit around the end of December and was born the next year around the end of September. For documentation on these claims visit the link sites. If your pastor cared about truth you would all ready have been taught this simple truth. Many more truths not found in popular preaching await the diligent searcher.

Earmark ban shows Congress can change
By U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D.
In the wake of the recent elections that saw Republicans lose their majority I’ve been reminding my colleagues that the election was not only a referendum on Iraq, but the way Congress does business. Voters were particularly disgusted with the earmark and influence peddling scandals that plagued Congress. Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff confirmed taxpayer’s fears when he said the appropriations committees in Congress had become “earmark favor factories” for lobbyists and special interests. The good news coming out of Washington, however, is Congress may finally be getting the message that it’s time to shut down the favor factory.
Two recent developments give me hope the culture of Washington may be changing for the better. First, before Congress adjourned for the year members agreed on a budget plan that killed 10,000 individual earmarks or pork projects. By this act alone, Congress reduced the total number of earmarks by 80 percent compared to last year and we reduced the dollar amount dedicated to earmarks by $50 billion. Last year, Congress spent $64 billion on special interest earmarks, which is nearly 10 times the size of Oklahoma’s state budget and nearly equal to the $65 billion we spent on veterans’ benefits and services. This year, we financed approximately $14 billion worth of earmarks. The $50 billion difference in the amount we spent on earmarks last year compared to this year is a huge sum – it exceeds the annual gross national product of two out of every three countries on earth. Congress can now direct those funds to more important priorities.
Second, Democratic leaders deserve credit for taking this victory one step further by pledging to freeze spending at current levels for one year, and by promising to not pass any new earmarks until real earmark reform becomes law. Although I will approach this plan with a “trust but verify” mindset, this development could be a major victory for taxpayers and lead to savings of tens of billions of dollars.
When I ran for the Senate I promised to fight wasteful Washington spending and earmarks, in particular, because earmarks are the gateway drug that leads to spending addiction in Congress. In the past five years, discretionary spending increased by 50 percent. It is no coincidence that during the same period the total cost of earmarks also grew by 50 percent. In recent years, many members of Congress who were otherwise fiscally conservative voted for bloated spending bills because they didn’t want to lose their earmarks.
I’ve always said reining in earmarks is only the first step in reducing wasteful Washington spending. In the past two years, the Senate subcommittee I chaired found that the federal government wastes about $200 billion per year through improper payments, fraud, duplication and other inefficiencies. Congress’ new pork-free diet, however, is a significant step in the right direction that, if maintained, will change the culture in Washington and make it far easier to address our other financial challenges.
Our greatest financial challenge is what economists refer to as the “demographic tsunami” of retiring baby boomers that will hit our economy by 2012. Boarding up the earmark favor factory means that members of Congress will have more time to focus on higher priorities, such as protecting programs like Social Security and Medicare. If we do nothing to fix those programs, seniors will lose benefits and our children and grandchildren will drown in debt and higher taxes.
The handful of Oklahoma projects that will be delayed while Congress abstains from pork is a small price to pay for the enormous long-term benefits we could gain from a change in direction in Washington. Even in the short-term, going without earmarks for one year means that Oklahoma taxpayers won’t be forced to finance wasteful earmarks in 49 other states, such as Bridges to Nowhere, teapot museums and sculpture parks. Furthermore, any worthwhile earmark for Oklahoma can, and should, be funded within the regular appropriations or competitive grant process.
Next year, I’ll do everything in my power to make sure the Democratic leaders who made these promises do not go back on their word. In the meantime, weary taxpayers should be encouraged by the knowledge that when they rise up and make their voices heard, change in Washington can happen.

Water Hazards and other impediments to political careers
- The information found in this site is extracted from Senatorial Privilege by Leo Damore. Mr Damore conducted over 200 interviews, many with people close to the case, including police officers. He had access to the files on Chappaquiddick locked in the district attorney's vault in Barnstable, and to personal notes about the case kept by key investigators of the accident.
- Some of the most powerful revelations in Senatorial Privilege were supplied by Joseph Gargan, who for nearly 20 years had remained silent and allowed himself to be made the scapegoat in the tragic death of Miss Kopechne

Baracka Hussein Obama is not what he appears to be! Not only does he profess to be pro-life and pro-abortion at deffernent lecterns...he also is a rainbow of religious affiliation. It depends on the day if he prays five times or not at all. Do we have 2 Muslims in the Congress? One each in the House and Senate? Father time will tell all...stay tuned!
A google of the life of B. Hussein Obama shows that he spent two years in a Muslim school. His biological father was a Muslim and apparently his mother leans to that faith because as her second husband she choose another Muslim. He has been raised and tutored by non Christians. His politics are anti personal gun ownership, pro abortion and he follows the whole litany of the ultra liberal democratic left. His popularity is a direct result of the media barrage following the DNC win. Remember the Oriental general who said a couple thousand years ago..."War is the art of deception"
We can not afford to have this guy sneak into our highest office. In two speeches in Hew Hampshire this week his question sparing ability was sophomoric. He displayed deep anger when asked about his middle name "Hussein" which he has attempted to conceal in his website and press releases. He said that middle names were not important and "What if someone middle name was "Adolph" would we question him about it...damn right we would especially if the fictional "middle name hider" had attended a Nazi school as a youth and his father and step Fatah were in the Gestapo. Baracka Hussein's meteoric rise to fame will burn out soon in the glaring light of truth brought out by reporters with enough guts to ask the tough questions. Questions like: Do you pray 5 times a day? Have you ever made a pilgrimage to Mecca? Do you plan a pilgrimage in the future? Do you recognize Christianity as the dominate religion of the USA. Will you vote to provide security to Israel and to condemn those who bomb them? Do you believe that Jesus Christ is divine? Do you reject any vow you made to Jihad as a youth?
Most of this information was gleaned from Obama's own writings and speeches

A day...a glorious day is coming!
and all heaven shall soon resound with the triumphant song, "Thou art worthy...for Thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood" (Rev 5:9).
The shameful Cross will be followed by a glorious crown, and "every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
"Mighty Victor, reign for ever,
Wear the crown so dearly won;
Never shall Thy people, never
Cease to sing what Thou hast done.
Thou hast fought Thy people's foes;
Thou wilt heal Thy people's woes!"
It is well with my soul..

The ultimate determinate in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas - a trial of spiritual resolve; the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideas to which we are dedicated -- Ronald Reagan
Reagan is gone to his good reward but the spiritual battle continues with the first US Representive taking the oath on the Koran and a US Senator who is a former(?) Muslim both from a religion whose basic tenat is taking over the world. The Muslims have bombed the twin trade towers in New York City, believed involved in the OKC bombing and are demanding nationwide that we observe their myraid rules of behavior. The Muslim percentage of the population is estimated to be over 1% of the population scattered evenly accross our country. 83% of Americans polled by ABC News recently indentified themselves as Christain. We must reasert our Christain hertige and affrim that the laws we have are Judeo/Christian based and not allow the encrochment of principles that are determental to our civilization. 2007/01/06jdm
Don't Tread on My Flag
We must be very concerned about who we elect as President and Commander in Chief...They must be willing to affirm the Christian roots of this country and the heritage of free enterprise and religious freedom. The must disavow any connection to any other world opinion than one that puts American interests first! They must pledge to never be the instrument of American submission to any authority that subverts the High Law of the Constitution of the United States.At the very least as a potential Commander In Chief of United States Armed Forces they must be able pass and receive a personal Top Secret Clearance background check that we demand of our defenders.God Bless the USA Keep us Free!

Tracks of a friend in the snow
I have lain on the path of bone chilling fear ... watched as the death angel hovered near ... Midnight I rode the trail where black lion stalked ... my steed snorting his course stayed.. balked ... I lost my seat and the moon swirled around ... my head was the first to kiss frozen ground ... My body bounced down the Arbuckles crag ... the earth drank my blood and there I laid ... and dreamed the dream of death’s opening door ... of life unlived and path’s untracked with joy untasted ... my future my claim on living gone as I lay wasted ... but awareness came as light chased away the night ... My companion grazed close by had kept the cat away ... snow tracks around my death bed testified to his stay ... my shirt red soaked with life’s precious fluid staining the ground ... I drug my pain racked body to the saddle and started down ... past the still waiting mountain lion eyes peering from thick weeds ... the smell of my blood kept him waiting to quench his savage needs ... I looked back as he smelled my blood spilled in the snow where I lay ... then followed us for awhile before turning to find unguarded prey ... Danpatch went to equine heaven during the next season’s winter strife ... But in my dreams I still count the tracks of my friend who saved my life.
. . jdm10/23/2006 based on a true occurrence with some literary license applied...My dad was a cowboy and Danpatch had been his favorite horse until he was retired to be my horse. At the time of the poem Danpatch was over twenty years old and I was 12. Gosh I miss him!
