GOP Primaries

I can’t believe all of the shenanigans going on in the country revolving around the GOP primaries.   I can’t believe all of the nonsense about “stopping” this candidate or that candidate.  It seems like just supporting your own favorite candidate would be less destructive to the party.   I myself am not a big Trump fan,  I have my reservations and so I have from day 1 supported Ted Cruz but if (when) Trump becomes the GOP candidate then I will definitely support Trump. 

Do the people threatening not to vote if Trump gets the nod really want to put Hillary in office? I wouldn’t want to align myself to the Hollywood crowd and the Main Stream Media who are just as intent on destroying the moral values in our country as they are to destroy Christianity.  

Billy Graham Quote – we all need to read and heed!

“Many people ask, what is integrity? It means a person is the same on the inside as he or she claims to be on the outside. A man of integrity can be trusted. He is the same person alone in a hotel room a thousand miles from home as he is at work or in his community or with his family. We have seen the tragic results of moral breakdown and shattered trust in people – from leaders in business and government to well-known sports figures, to husbands, wives, and families and, yes, even the church. The erosion of basic moral and spiritual values seems to be getting more serious at every level of society…It’s easy to point the finger at prominent people accused of corruption. We can easily see their sins and the results. But a careful look reveals that the same poison of self-gratification and greed exists in our hearts as well. We all make decisions based on what we truly believe. Many people today wonder if there is absolute truth. They say there is only perspective, that truth is whatever you perceive it to be; whatever works for you. If that is the case, then there is no right or wrong, only differing opinions, and one is as good as another. But God’s standard is expressed in the Bible, and the ultimate example of that standard is Jesus Christ. Jesus said, ‘You will know the truth and the truth will set you free’ (John 8:32). When we live by this truth, we possess integrity…I believe integrity can be restored to a society one person at a time. The choice belongs to each of us.” – Billy Graham

Thought For The Day–April 27

Just saw this on Facebook and I like it so much I want to share with everyone.  This was posted by someone that goes to a church I have been going to (Waterford Weslyan)

Knights21 Thought for the Day

“We have more in common with every person we meet than we realize. I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I am certain that you, everyone for that matter, do the same things, too. So, we’re really not that different, are we? Launch into your day determined to focus on the things that you have in common with everyone you meet, and not the few things that may make them seem different. That is the most reliable way to connect with another in a meaningfull way!”

Yogi-isms

When you come to a fork in the road, take it

We made too many wrong mistakes.

You can observe a lot by watching.

The future ain’t what it used to be.

Nobody goes there anymore; it’s too crowded.

You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.

How can you think and hit at the same time?

I tell the kids, somebody’s gotta win, somebody’s gotta lose. Just don’t fight about it. Just try to get better.

Even Napoleon had his Watergate.

It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.

It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility.


You don’t have to swing hard to hit a home run. If you got the timing, it’ll go.

How to keep kids from leaving the church

This is my post from a group I belong to for the Waterford Weslyan Church.

Sorry for being first to post again and I promise I will edit out a lot of the notes I have been making but here goes. . .
How do we keep kids from falling away from the church? I’ve been making a lot of notes on this since I saw the video and the more I think about it the more complex the answer tends to be. This is just so complicated that I don’t think there is a one size fits all answer to this. I can only give a few examples of my childhood that I believe helped me over the years.
I was fortunate that both my Mom and Dad were active in our church and watching how they lived and treated people was certainly a big plus for me. I do think it is important that kids are exposed to church activities as much as possible; I remember going to our churches monthly covered dish or spaghetti suppers where we were around Christians of all shapes and sizes. I helped my dad most Saturdays take care of the church lawn and gardens; a simple thing but it teaches you how to serve the church and God.
When I was being shipped to Utapao Thailand in 1967 one of my moms relatives (Rev Thomas P. Dean) presented me with a small pocket New Testament and while I may not have always read it – I carried it with me wherever I went and still have it to this day and I take it out and thumb through it. It is little things like this that plant these tiny seeds somewhere in the back of your mind that help our faith journey.
Sometimes just being around the right mix of people makes a big difference. I remember when a group of men were talking after church and Manual Beito said to my dad “Henry, I’m a Cuban and you’re a Cracker and we are going to be friends”. That was the beginning of a lifelong friendship.
These are just some miscellaneous thoughts. I hope I haven’t bored everyone.

It Seems To Me

Just a short thought.   Watching ISIS and the Muslims disrupting countries around the world with little or no effort because the cancer of Socialism and Liberalism has spread around the Globe and politicians and world leaders are basically sitting back while their countries are destroyed.   It just occurred to me that if countries of the world back in 1930 and 1940 had been so badly governed that Hitler would not have been stopped and would have probably taken over most if not all of the Globe.

What I am saying is that the politicians in our country and around the world have to get their heads out of their respective asses and it has to happen really soon before we reach the tipping point.    

Hillary Rodham Clinton: An Exceptionally Dishonest Life

From Tea Party Nation

Posted by Frosty Wooldridge on April 11, 2016 at 8:34am

By Frosty Wooldridge

Hillary Clinton lives a very dishonest life. From the time she enjoyed “first lady” status as the wife of Governor Bill Clinton in Arkansas, to her time as the president’s wife in the White House—all the way to Secretary of State of our nation—Hillary Rodham Clinton told-tells so many lies—she thinks lying equates to normality.

Beyond her slinging “F-words” toward her servants in Arkansas to raging “F-bombs” at Secret Service agents in the White House as documented in a half dozen books, she tolerated-condoned a husband who broke every moral code of marriage and ethics during his tenure of power.

She continued(s) her deceptive-dishonest life in order to gain and maintain power at the highest levels of government.

Lord Acton, 1834-1901, said, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” (The same can be said for such women as Hillary Clinton.)

No woman with any moral or ethical fiber within her being would tolerate her husband lying repeatedly over the years, cheating on her over the decades and having sex with 21 year old intern Monica Lewinski in the Oval Office of the White House.

At one point as a young lawyer in the Watergate proceedings, she faced discipline for lying and malfeasance, which Jerry Zeifman, a democrat—fired her.

This quote comes from FoxNation February 25, 2014:

“As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a pattern of lying.

“The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

“Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.”

Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” (Several fact checks contest the proceedings, but cannot definitely vanquish this event.)

In the book Passion & Betrayal by Jennifer Flowers, the blond model described her 12-year affair with Bill Clinton descriptively and compellingly. Historians may read the book for a clearer understanding of the ‘real’ Bill Clinton. He shared the same dishonest and deceitful life as his wife Hillary.

During her time as Secretary of State, she utilized Muslim Brotherhood female aide Huma Abedin to counsel Hillary and push Abedin’s Islamic influence into the White House. Today, no less than 13 Muslims aide and direct Barack Hussein Obama including the head of the CIA, John O. Brennan, who converted to Islam.

While Secretary of State, she illegally used outside and insecure email servers to carry on our nation’s highest top secrets of classified information. That’s a direct violation of our laws and punishable by prison.

Additionally, in 2012, she ignored calls from Ambassador Stevens as to the dangers facing him and his staff in Libya. She failed to send in Special Forces in the area to protect Stevens’ life and that of embassy staff. Four perished.

She later explained and gave excuses, “What difference did it make?”

Four good men lost their lives as well as the anguish of their families. Hillary Clinton, like all bureaucrats enjoys 24/7 protection from harm. Additionally, she created a story that a video against Islam caused the attack, which proved totally false.

After leaving the White House, she complained about being broke, when in fact, a retiring president commands in excess of $200,000.00 a year for the rest of his life.

Right now, investigators could indict her for her lies as to the emails, Benghazi and many of her activities with overseas money known as the “Panama Papers.” Because she enjoys insider power, many others cover up for her and she covers for them. We may never know the truth about Benghazi, just as we may never know the truth about how, where and the ‘who’ of Barack Obama’s origins.

Today, Hillary steps in front of adoring crowds with her anticipating to become the first female U.S. president. Most don’t know about her past, don’t care about her lies or her vindictive personal behavior. They expect to vote along party lines with their emotions.

She told reporters that America needs to inject more than 75,000 Syrian refugees, as if none of them will instigate the next Brussels, Belgium or Paris, France terrorist attacks in America. She neglects to mention that African-Americans struggle horribly in today’s economy. She neglects the 1.5 million homeless Americans as well as 14 million unemployed, but expects to place all those refugees on welfare. She forgets that America suffocates under a $19 trillion debt. She fails to comprehend that America imports 1.2 million legal immigrants annually with 91 percent of them subsisting on welfare paid for by struggling Americans. She promises amnesty for 20 to 30 million illegal aliens violating our nation’s borders. She refuses to secure America’s borders.

If a life of deception and dishonesty propels Hillary Rodham Clinton into the White House again, the utter moral, ethical and reasoned foundation of the U.S. Constitution and the American people will flush into the toilet of history. While she dresses nicely, speaks eloquently and dances her dance—she cannot out talk, out run or out last her exceptionally dishonest life.

Donald J Trump – Albany Rally

My family and I went to the Trump Rally last night (April 11th).  It was a very energizing and exciting event.   Out of all of my family I am the lone voice that actually supports Ted Cruz – but should Trump get the nomination I won’t hesitate to vote for him.     I did not hear any hate speech, just the run of the mill campaign stuff;  Love me and hate my opponent – the kind of stuff all candidates say to gain support.  It was a pretty packed arena of probably 20,000 or so folks and I want to say that I say people from all walks of life:  young, old, black, white, yellow, even a few green people (in the very high top rows in the upper level).  I enjoyed myself and I think learned a lot about what Donald Trump stand for and hopes to do if elected.

Children’s Attempts at Hymns

*Children’s Attempts at Singing Well Known Hymns*

Sometimes kids get things a little……well, maybe these came from kids:

– Give us this day our deli bread!

– Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Whole East Coast.

– We shall come to Joyce’s, bringing in the cheese.

– Gladly, the consecrated, cross-eyed bear.

– He carrots for you.

– Bringing in the sheets.

– Yield not to Penn Station.

– Dust around the throne.

– Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Praise Him all creatures, HERE WE GO

– While shepherds washed their socks by night

– He socked me and boxed me with His redeeming glove.

BOOM: Franklin Graham Announces ‘Hypocrite Of The Year’ Award – Liberals Want To Keep This Quiet…

Randy DeSoto April 7, 2016 at 8:53am

Evangelist and political activist Franklin Graham called out PayPal for its recent decision to cancel plans to open offices in Charlotte, N.C., in protest to a newly passed transgender law.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Graham wrote, “PayPal gets the hypocrite of the year award! This company says they’re not coming to North Carolina because the legislators and Gov. Pat McCrory have passed a law to protect women and children against sexual predators by not allowing men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms.”

The North Carolinian went on to explain the source of the hypocrisy by quoting Rep. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C., who represents a district near Charlotte. “PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men into the women’s bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position,” said the congressman earlier this week. 

Graham further elaborated on this point by noting some of the specific countries in which PayPal appears to have no qualms in doing business. “PayPal operates in countries including Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Yemen, for Pete’s sake. Just last month PayPal announced they would be expanding in Cuba, a country in which homosexuals and transgender people have been imprisoned, tortured, and executed.”

The Christian leader observed if they find the practice of not allowing different sexes to go in each other’s bathrooms so odious, they are not bound by the law on their own property. “And under the current law that they are so strongly protesting, PayPal could have chosen their own corporate bathroom policies,” he writes. 

PayPal CEO Dan Schulman explained his company’s decision in not opening its Global Operations Center in Charlotte in a statement. “The new law perpetuates discrimination and it violates the values and principles that are at the core of PayPal’s mission and culture. As a result, PayPal will not move forward with our planned expansion into Charlotte.”

He added the decision “was a clear and unambiguous one.”

The state law, H.B. 2, came in response to a Charlotte city ordinance, which mandated that transgender people be allowed to use public restrooms of their choosing. H.B. 2 overrides such local ordinances on the issue. The new law is already being challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union and others in federal court.

For North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, the decision to enact the law was just as unambiguous as it was to Schulman. “If our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children,” he stated. “They are precious and priceless. If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the worth of our children in the same light, then I wish them well as they do business somewhere else.”

Graham praised Forest’s words. “He couldn’t be more right! We need more politicians across the country with this kind of backbone,” the evangelist wrote. “Pray for the N.C. governor, lieutenant governor, and legislators that they stand strong against the attacks of this wicked agenda.”
