The 2012 RNC comes to an end

Normally I don't usually get moved to tears by speeches but I have to say I cried a few times with some of the people that spoke these last few days.  Especially, the parents who lost their children.  And the success stories, etc.

I was moved by Rubio's speech as well.  I truly admire the Latino's who have really stepped up to the plate and have smashed the stereotyping  that we see in Hollywood, who love to portray Hispanics/Latinos as drug dealers, gang bangers, prostitutes, or housekeepers who don't speak properly in English. The speeches were awesome and shed light that we are not a dumb and illiterate race but are quite capable of being just as successful as anyone else, if given the opportunity.


Governor Susana Martinez, in her words, “Growing up, I never imagined a girl from a border town could one day become a governor. But this is America Y, en America todo es posible.”said Martinez.

She is the first Latina governor in United States history and expected to be of key importance for aiding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney close his massive 30-point gap in support from Hispanic voters against President Obama.  I also loved the fact that she knows how to use a Smith and Wesson .357 magnum, quite impressive. Those guns would knock me on my rump.

I must not forget to mention Ted Cruz, or even Brian Sandoval. These are the kind of people I want my boys to admire, and not just Latinos but any person who rose up from poverty and made something of their lives. I want more for them, than for myself. That is my prayer, for them to succeed and achieve their dreams, their goals, like those mentioned above.  Because they all came from poor and impoverished backgrounds and with the support, encouragement and love of their parents were able to succeed.  That's all I want and most importantly that they keep the Lord Jesus always in their hearts and to never stray from their faith in Him.


I loved when Mitt Romney said,
"President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family."

‎"I am running for president to help create a better future. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. An America where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads them to a good job and a bright horizon."


I liked the fact that we, as parents, will be able to choose the schools of our choice for our children. Because right now, both of my boys are being bullied and no one is doing a damn thing to stop it.  I even called the school administration and got the run-around.  My children deserve and need to be in schools where they can learn and become successful, independent adults. And not have to worry about bullies.

Below are some great pictures from the RNC:













There was so much that I enjoyed that it would take forever to articulate every single tidbit. But I didn't miss one speech. And one of the highlights, for myself, was seeing Scott Hamilton!  Wow!  I wish he would have been allowed to speak, but his presence was enough, we know where he stands politically.

Okay, what were your thoughts on the RNC?

School asks deaf preschooler to change his sign language name



Three-and-a-half year old Hunter Spanjer, who is deaf, signs his name by crossing his forefinger and index finger and moving his hand up and down. To his family, friends and those who know the Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) language that the Grand Island, Neb., boy uses, that gesture uniquely means “Hunter Spanjer.”

But to Hunter’s school district, it might mean something else. The district claims that it violates a rule that forbids anything in the school that looks like a weapon, reports KOLN-TV.

This is absolutely ludicrous. A three-year-old is no danger to anyone. This is intolerable and I would be pulling my child out of that school, or fight them tooth and nail. And as a person who signs, I find his unique sign for his name, beautiful. Shame on anyone trying to take that away from him.

One more thing, if he were to place his two "R's" on top of each other and then spread them out, it means, "Redemption."

I hope, even my liberal readers will agree this is going way to far, right?

SEAL AD TO EXCORIATE OBAMA FOR BOWING TO FOREIGN LEADERS

This post literally speaks for itself, but you know me, I have to add my two cents.

The controversial super PAC Special Operations for America, led by former Navy SEALs, is set to release a blistering new ad against President Obama Tuesday at the Republican National Convention.

The ad, titled “Bow to Nobody,” depicts Navy SEALs in combat situations; it then proclaims that they fight so that America will not have to bow to anybody.

Then the punch line: the infamous photo of Obama bowing to the Saudi king.

The ad is sure to provoke massive consternation on the left, which has been in a frenzy ever since Special Operations for America launched. The event at which the ad launches, “Defending Our Defenders: A Salute to the United States Military,” will feature a tribute by Congressman Louie Gohmert, former members of SEAL Team Six, Army Rangers, Gold Star parents, and a few surprise guests.

Ryan Zinke, the former Navy SEAL who started the super PAC, spoke exclusively with Breitbart News today. “The ad itself accurately portrays where this President is,” said Zinke. “It accurately portrays his core belief that America should not lead. This president is shaping America to be one of the followers, to relinquish our role as a world leader. I didn’t fight 23 years as a Navy SEAL to watch America bow to anybody.”

He continued, “It’s not just the king of Saudi Arabia. My friends from WWII that fought in the Pacific theater -- when they see the president bow to the emperor of Japan, I’ve seen veterans cry. This is about the fundamental belief in American exceptionalism, the notion that America should reign supreme. We are a country of values, and we fought hard to be exceptional, and we are.”

When asked whether it was inappropriate for former SEALs to speak out, as some on the left have alleged, Zinke answered, “If the veterans can’t speak out, who can? I think it’s a duty of every veteran and every citizen to be actively involved in our political process, especially when the president sets out to negotiate away our rights under the Constitution. There have been other veterans -- TR, Eisenhower, JFK -- they’ve been active in speaking out and shaping the policy and politics of our country. I’m going to stand for what I believe in, and I’m encouraging every veteran and every citizen to do the same. Our country is at a crossroads, and this election is certainly the most important in my lifetime.”

Last week, Breitbart News reported that President Obama had placed Special Operations for America on his so-called “enemies list.” Zinke responded, “I see that my name is on the ‘enemies list’ in the Obama campaign. This administration rules through intimidation and fear and misinformation as a form of distraction to what’s really important. And what’s really important is the values of our country -- and a strong economy creates a strong military.

“I’ve been trained hard to fight and not give up, and I’m not going to give in.”

The fight truly begins tomorrow evening. Get ready for fireworks.
ON BREITBART TV





Does anyone else find these pictures embarrassing and appalling?  I sure do. I don't appreciate seeing our "leader" and I use that term rather loosely, bowing down to other leaders.  

Our veterans have every right, even more so, than civilians to speak out against Obama's pathetic behavior. Many of our American soldiers were brutally murdered and tortured during WWII and then to witness their Commander in Chief bowing down?? Really?  What an insult and literally a slap in the face to our heroes.

It is true that this current administration are nothing but tyrannical bullies and they thrive on intimidation. Look at what happened to that ex-Marine for speaking against Obama on Facebook. He was forced into a mental hospital for 30 days!  

If you speak against Obama, I suppose you become the enemy of the state?  I know that, according to Homeland security, Tea Party Patriots are considered, "Domestic Terrorists."  I can't even imagine what is going to happen when this comes full circle.

Nuff said.

NJ STATE SENATOR REFUSES AWARD FROM BOY SCOUT TROOP OVER ITS ‘EXCLUSIONARY POLICIES TOWARDS GAY BOYS’


Sen. Raymond Lesniak Refuses Award From Boy Scouts Over Gay Stance
The Boy Scouts of America’s policies on openly-gay members have frustrated gay rights activists and liberals for quite some time. Recently, the organization’s decision to continue its ban on homosexuals has added fuel to critics’ fire. And a New Jersey state senator’s decision not to accept an award from the organization due to these issues is likely to further stoke the debate.

(Related: Boy Scouts Reaffirm Gay Ban After 2-Year Review)

Sen. Raymond Lesniak (D-Union) is refusing to accept a nomination for an award from the Patriots Path Council, a local Boy Scouts troop. He told 1010 WINS, a regional radio station, that he is “troubled” by the Boy Scouts stance on gays and, thus, could not bring himself to accept an honor from the group.

“I was grateful for their thoughts and I do respect all the good works that the Boy Scouts have done,” Lesniak said. “I was a Boy Scout as a matter of fact, but I am very troubled by their exclusionary policies towards gay boys.”

At the center of his issue with the exclusionary policies, Lesniak said that damage could be done to young men who he believes have no control over their orientation.

“It’s not their choice, it’s who they are and no good can come from them not being accepted for who they are,”he continued. “They’re a good organization, they do great things, but they could do even greater things if they change their policy and allow gay boys to participate in their activities.”

The Patriots Path Council released a statement following Lesniak’s refusal, describing its “diverse” membership pool. While the organization is disappointed with the senator’s decision, leaders wrote, “We fully understand and appreciate that not everyone will agree with any one position or policy.”

Well, I am not surprised seeing which party Mr. Lesniak represents. So his refusal shouldn't be such a shocker. Most liberal Democrats support the LGBT's in just about anything they want to do. Which includes men using women's bathrooms, etc. 

I am very proud and encouraged by the strength and courage the Boy Scouts have shown in the face of such adversity. It is quite impressive. They are standing firm regardless of how much pressure the MSM has placed upon them, and of course the LGBT's themselves. They are just dying to infiltrate this group, it's killing them that they are refused entry.  Let them whine and complain, this group will stand strong and firm.

It's rather refreshing to hear that there are still wholesome organizations that do not bend at the will of the intolerant.  Way to go Boy Scouts!  And hopefully next time you will find someone more appreciative of the award and would be honored in receiving it.

God bless and keep strong!  You are not alone in the fight.

Nuff said.

Study: U.S. hostile to religious liberty

I found this study a bit interesting and as a Christian who truly believes in Jesus Christ, have noticed an increase and intense hostility towards those that stand on biblical doctrine. 

I know that I stand firm on what I learn and read from my bible (KJV) and from Christian teachings from my pastors and Christian radio and news casts.

Anyhoo...this is the article that I found.  I am leaving all the links that came with the article. 

So, do you believe that there has been an increase of hostility towards those that truly stand on the Word of God?

ARTICLE:

A new survey conducted by two conservative groups reveals proven hostility toward Christianity in the U.S.

The joint study from Liberty Institute and the Family Research Council (FRC) records up to 600 incidents of hostility toward religion, most of which have occurred within the last ten years. For example, a Christian couple was fired as apartment complex managers and forced to move because a painting with a Christian reference was displayed in their office (see earlier story). Also listed is a student who was told he could not wear a t-shirt to school because of its Christian message.

Liberty Institute attorney Justin Butterfield tells OneNewsNow what his group hopes to accomplish with the study's findings.

"We want to raise awareness of the issue. A lot of people think that hostility because of people's religious beliefs and attacks on religious liberty are things that happen elsewhere in the world, not in the United States," he notes. "We just want to show that it actually happens with increasing and alarming regularity here in the United States."

Liberty Institute President Kelly Shackelford and FRC President Tony Perkins are presenting the study before the Republican Party Convention platform committee to raise that awareness.

"It's something that has gone under the radar, and we want to bring it up and point out that this is an issue and a concern that's affecting more and more Americans each year," Butterfield adds.

The Liberty Institute further points out that religious liberty is "facing a relentless onslaught from well-funded and aggressive groups" who are using whatever means available to suppress or attack religious freedom.

The Tea Party Culture War blog tour

I would like to thank Litfuse Group for providing me a free copy of this book to review.

Watch the video here:

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Wondering about where political, financial, and envirionmental trends are taking America and the world, and how Christianity fits in?  Pondering what political party should take control of America to help turn things around?

Stephen Johnston, addresses the troublesome times Americans are find themselves in.  Tea Party Culture War contains clear discussion and explanations of the:

  • Culture war between theism, naturalism, and pantheism
  • Trend of liberalism and postmodernism in America
  • Disintegration of the family, breakdwon of morality, and bias of the education system.
  • Negative effects of central banking and Keynesian economics worldwide
  • Dangers of open interpretation of the Constitution
  • Effects of entitlements and resource wars on America and the world 
  • Current religious trends
  • Biblical prophecy of the impending end times.
This book sheds light on modern times and gives a glimpse into the turbulent times ahead and provides a Christian worldview with which to approach it all.

America stands at a crossroads: culturally, economically, and politically. Enter The Tea Party Movement, whose focus is primarily fiscal conservatism, government accountability, and reduced taxation.

Currently, America suffers from a clash of worldviews, but the issue is much deeper than politics; it is ultimately a spiritual battle between good and evil. For the sake of generations to come, we need to win this war. We need to take action to defend our beliefs. We need to take the right road.


MY REVIEW:  I cannot even begin to stress enough for people to read and buy this book it is an excellent source of information on how liberalism began, Marxism began, just a great source of history and information that I know I will use as a reference when blogging or Facebooking liberals or those that I tend to debate with. 

If you love history, this is an awesome book to add to your collection. 
  
There were things in this book that I wasn't even aware and my eyes were opened. I am so glad that I was one of the lucky ones to be chosen to read and review this book. 

It is a tool to help those of us combating the above. And I have an even better  understanding on how liberalism began. I ABSOLUTELY loved this book and it is a going to remain at my desk along with my KJV as my reference guide.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  A long-time resident of California, author and economist, Steve Johnston, B.S., J.D., earned a Juris Doctorate degree from Western State University of Law and a Theological degree from Calvary Chapel School of Ministry. Mr. Johnston has over 20 years experience in prison ministry and Bible teaching, and has served as a chaplain in Orange County and Los Angeles jails as well as Pelican Bay, a California maximum security prison.

Mr. Johnston describes his book, The Tea Party Culture War (WinePress, 2011) as a systematic manifesto of the Tea Party Movement. Mr. Johnston and his wife of 38 years divide their time between homes in Palm Desert, California and Brookings, Oregon. They have one adult daughter and one granddaughter.

Hate Crime or not? UPDATE

Shooting at Family Research Council office

WASHINGTON, DC - Authorities have a gunman in custody in the wake of a shooting Wednesday at the headquarters of the Family Research Council in Washington , DC.

Police say an armed man walked into the building and was confronted by a security guard -- whom he shot in the arm before the guard and others wrestled him to the ground. The man was taken into custody by the FBI and is being interviewed. Authorities haven't identified him.

The FBI is not saying anything about the motive for the shooting.

Like many of the country's pro-family groups, the Family Research Council takes a strong stand against abortion and homosexual "marriage."

FRC president Tony Perkins released a statement saying "Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family."

Gary Bauer, who heads the pro-family group Campaign for Working Families, issued the following statement: "Sadly, there are press reports that the alleged gunman opened fire after expressing his opposition to FRC's pro-family, pro-life beliefs. These are views that are widely shared by good and decent Americans across the country.


"Yet in recent years we have seen a disturbing level of intolerance and hate aimed at those who share traditional values, whether it is vandalism against churches or businesses whose owners embrace traditional values, or today's shooting at the Family Research Council."

The president of the American Family Association, Tim Wildmon, added his concerns about the incident and asked people to pray for the security guard and the gunman.

A societal poison

Bauer, who knows personally the guard who was wounded, tells OneNewsNow: "The early indications are that the shooter was an extremist -- a left-wing or gay rights extremist," he states. "If that is the case, then it is one more piece of evidence that rhetoric being used on the left against conservatives, [against] Christians is leading to violence, intimidation, and threats."

But people of faith, he says, must not be intimidated. "This is a poison in a democratic society and it can't be allowed to continue," offers the pro-family spokesman. "And no matter how much it does continue, men and women of faith cannot cave in to intimidation or threats."

Bauer says it is appalling the country has reached a point where defenders of traditional values have to be fearful of going to work or speaking in a public forum.

I believe this is construed as a hate crime and no matter what happens, Christians need to stand their ground and not be afraid. We cannot allow hate and ignorance to succumb us to silence.

And I am so happy and grateful to God that no one was killed due to this lunatic.  He intended to kill and was stopped. I give all glory to God.

UPDATE:

Some more news came out on the shooter. He was carrying 15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in his back pack and the police also found a box of ammo.  They have speculated that he intended to kill the victim and then leave a sandwich as a calling card.

The man is a college graduate, an active homosexual, and liberal activist, I forgot what degree he has, but was driving while listening to the news.

The victim was a the maintenance man and was not armed, but disarmed the shooter.

Anyhoo, a lot has been unfolding.  GET THIS... almost immediate the center got a call from Mitt Romney offering his condolences. And just yesterday, Obama called. Gee.... what do you think of that?

Obama: Pay my wife, please President wants taxpayers to pick up larger family tab

From the Washington Times
"President Obama thinks his wife should be paid for the privilege of serving as first lady. Speaking at a campaign event in Denver on Wednesday, Mr. Obama invoked Mrs. Obama’s plight to make a point about equal pay for equal work. “I want to make sure that when she’s working, she is getting paid the same as men,” he said. “I’ve got to say, first ladies right now don’t, even though that’s a tough job.” Poor Michelle, we feel her pain.
If Mr. Obama was joking, it was in poor taste, especially with so many women struggling in hard economic times. First ladies have never been given a paycheck, but they certainly benefit from their privileged circumstances. Michelle basks in the reflected fame of her powerful husband; she lives rent-free in the most exclusive address in the world; she has chefs, maids, drivers and other servants at her beck and call 24 hours a day. It might be a “tough job,” but she is assisted by a personal staff of more than 20 people, who are paid a collective salary of over $1.5 million. Those perks are forms of compensation.
Mrs. Obama lives the good life and she lets everyone know it. While not known for being a fashion leader in the style of Jackie Kennedy, she has come under fire for flaunting her expensive tastes in times of economic trouble. Her latest offense was showing up in London at a pre-Olympics party wearing a jacket costing $6,800. That’s 10 times the median weekly earnings for full-time working women.
The Obamas are notorious for their lavish, taxpayer-subsidized vacations. Their December 2011 getaway in Hawaii cost more than $1.5 million. Mrs. Obama’s jaunt with some of her friends to the Costa del Sol in Spain in August 2010 billed for close to half a million dollars, much of which was from travel costs incurred by the U.S. Air Force."
 This would only work if every mother or wife would get paid the same amount of money their husband's make and possibly more, because, like myself, I am a mom, housekeeper, laundry person, nurse, doctor, chauffeur, accountant, referee (when it is called for and with two boys it does)  teacher, cook, I am on duty 24 hours a day, we are the ones that take our kids to the doctor, sports events, etc. Our duties are endless, and most of us would LOVE to stay home and do just that, but in this sick and vile economy, we not only have all of those chores to do at home, we also have to work outside the home to help support the family. 

So, the greedy Obama's need to shut their yaps!  I don't want to hear how tough Michelle has it, she doesn't have a clue what it is to live in the real world, where servants are not a part of her existence.  She wouldn't last a day in an average American's home.  Let alone how to clean or wash her expensive clothes, or drive herself to the dry cleaners. 

This really hit a nerve with me.

ATHEISTS AWARD 12-YEAR-OLD WITH $1,000 FOR THIS PASSIONATE SPEECH AGAINST GOV’T PRAYER

Maia Disbrow, a 12-year-old from Hamilton County, Tennessee, is $1,000 richer after publicly protesting against government prayer. The young girl received the honor from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist group based in Madison, Wisconsin, after she delivered a speech at a Hamilton County Commissioners meeting.

In her July 18 address, Disbrow encouraged local leaders to drop prayers at their meetings. According to a release put out by the FFRF, she got involved in the anti-faith activism after she saw her father complain about the prayers at an earlier meeting. According to the organization, the young girl decided on her own that she wanted to speak out against what she views as a violation of the separation of church and state.

“I realized that there were some things I’d like to say to them. It took me a while to decide because even though I go to a middle school for the arts that is supposed to accept everyone, I was worried,” Disbrow said. “During elementary school, I was bullied about my beliefs and whenever the subject of my religion, or lack thereof, came up, my social status dropped for a few days.”

The young girl went on to claim that the local politicians are acting “like a bunch of fifth-grade bullies.” So, she penned and delivered the speech that can be viewed, below:  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSgf5xjlm-M&feature=player_embedded

“The prayer was very rude to me,” she said of the commissioners’ prayers at government meetings. “It is not fair for you to pray openly to your God without praying to all the others as well.”

Is it just me or did this little girl's speech sound well-rehearsed and insincere?  What does a kid at the age know about separation of church and state?  It's seems to me that her parents put her up to this. And quite typical of liberals to speak about something that IS NOT in the constitution. So, not only have they mislead this kid, they are teaching her a falsehood about the constitution. Wrong, so very, very wrong.  Kids should be given the opportunity to think for themselves and make up their own minds.

I take my boys to church and they read the bible with me, and yes, they will even watch or read things about politics. And when they ask questions I answer them to the best of my ability but in no way will I give them misinformation or coerce them into thinking that my opinion is the only answer. I have always taught them that when in doubt go to the Word of God or to pray about. Or to ask another adult.  I want them to think for themselves and to formulate their own opinion.

My boys have both chosen to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, that's something every person must do on their own, no one can make that decision for them. Yes, I am raising them up to love this nation, to read the bible and teaching them what is morally correct or corrupt.  I am teaching them about God.  But the rest is up to them. I will not shelter them from the news or what happens to Christians in other nations that get persecuted or even killed, I want them to know the truth about how the world operates. That evil does exist as well as good.

I feel sorry for any child that is so brainwashed and used like a puppet to get an adults or parents opinion passed on as theirs. That to me is despicable, and irresponsible.

NBC Airs Ragú Commercial During Olympics Featuring Kid Walking In On Parents Having Sex

As the commercial begins, a young boy is walking up the steps in his house calling "Hey Mom" as he approaches a closed door.

He opens the door and walks in as country music starts with a male voice singing:

Parents in bed, but it's just eight o'clock
That's why they taught you, you should always knock
He needs RAGÚ cuz growing up's tough
Give him RAGÚ he's been through enough

The camera pans in on the shocked expression on the boy's face as he sees what's going on in his parents' bedroom.

Stunned, the boy leaves the room, closes the door, and heads downstairs to the kitchen to make himself spaghetti covered in - you guessed it - Ragú.

The tagline at the end: "A long day of childhood calls for America's favorite pasta sauce."

Did I mention this aired during NBC's Sunday night coverage of the Olympics?

I believe either NBC is desperate for viewers or they are so into promoting sex that they will go beyond what is decent and right to promote spaghetti sauce? 

Oh wait, we are talking about NBC....DOH! What was I thinking?  They live to promote sex, promiscuity and every other kind of sexual innuendo.

This was in very bad taste.

After saying that, I must admit, that the kid's face was classic. Bad commercial and poor kid.

OBAMA CAMPAIGN SUES TO RESTRICT MILITARY VOTING

Hat tip: Breitbart


President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state's law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis."

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as "arbitrary" and having "no discernible rational basis," I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

The National Defense Committee reports:

[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.

I think it's unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn't make it as easy as possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures we have the right to vote in the first place.

If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly scream that the proposal could "disenfranchise" some voter, somewhere. We must ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter. Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.

Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with prejudice.

As many of you know I am HUGE supporter of our military, coming from a military family makes me a bit biased, hence my support.

I heard about this as a "rumor" on Facebook and did my own investigating and came across this bit of news from the Breitbart page. And let me tell you I find the actions of this current administration, which I make no secret of, absolutely despicable.

I believe that our servicemen and women deserve to have ample time and given the earliest opportunity to place their votes before anyone else. They need it. Most of them are out in the field during voting time or on maneuvers, etc. It's only fair and reasonable that they get to exercise their right to vote, since they are the ones that are sacrificing their lives to keep this nation free. 

One more thing, I simply cannot begin to express my disgust and disdain when I see Obama shooting one of his pathetic photo ops with our troops when I know he does't give rats-rear-end about them.  Unlike President Bush, who most of the time is getting his picture taken by private citizens using their cell phones, and I said, "most of the time."

It's what I have seen on Facebook and so forth. I know a photo-op when I see one.

For example:


Do you see the difference in the photos???

Chick-Fil-A....my experience.

Yay!! I went to Chick-Fil-A at lunch time, talk about long, long, long, long lines, lots of backed up traffic and people waiting outside, I was one of those in line outside, I think I was only there for 45 minutes, not bad at all. I was so thankful for the cloud cover today!! And talking with people all around me. It was sublime.

The best part was this older gentlemen holding up a two-sided si
gn that read, "Honk for God." and the other side "1-Man 1-woman" Or something to that effect. I couldn't believe all of the honking and then all of a sudden it was a like a cacophony of horns going off at one time, I actually got chills. I can't even begin to describe the sound.

People were "whoo-hooing" and waving to the man and to us that were outside standing in line. We, in line, were waving back. It was well-worth the wait. And I got to speak with the owner of CFA for a few seconds and got my food less than a minute. I actually know the man and his wife. Beautiful couple.

It was a wonderful experience seeing all those believers standing for traditional and biblical values. We were all united. AWESOME!!

Today of all days, I wish I had a Smart Phone or Blackberry or one of those fancy phones that takes great pics and videos. Mine doesn't do either, bummer. But still very, very glad I was a part of something so cool and special.



The picture above is our local Chick-Fil-A, courtesy of my best friend, Barret.
