Is American Freedom Obsolete?

american-flag-2aFresh off the latest leg of his “World-Wide America Apology Tour” Barack Obama has told the Universe that America is NOT a Christian nation — but it IS a Muslim one. Under HIS reign this may very well become true.

In what I found to be a less than stirring speech in the Great Hall at Cairo University to crowd of about 3,000, Mr. Obama completely ignored actual history as well as current events when he once again, apologized to the Arab world for America’s past actions.

Based on how Mr. Obama speaks, one would think that the United States has been going into pristine, economically and politically sound countries and running amok. He ignores the billions of dollars American taxpayers have pony’d up to assist people who’d just as soon see us dead – but only after they’ve had a decent meal, drank clean water and been treated with the latest medical technology — provided by you – the infidels!

We build new infrastructure in their countries, while ours crumbles. We build schools and hospitals in their countries and then complain that our own healthcare and educational systems are failing. We feed the world, while children go to bed hungry in our own back yard. If a natural disaster happens anywhere in the world, we rally the troops and rush out to aide. When a natural disaster happens in the United States, we must, primarily fend for ourselves. When was the last time you saw a headline touting how some Third World nation had written a check repaying the United States of America for its financial sacrifices?

In total Rock Star fashion, Obama flashed his pearly whites for the cameras while sublimely stating that “no one country should dictate to another”. Unless you happen to be Israel (or America), of course, then EVERY single, mug-hutted, thug potentate on the planet can dictate to you about what you should be doing to protect sovereignty in your own nation. Now that’s supporting freedom! The Secretary of sASS, Hillary Clinton, can even tell you that you are no longer allowed to “naturally” grow. All Hail the UN!

Obama, in his misguided effort to “improve” America’s image, called America a “colonialist” nation and stated that we did not start off that way.  Does he even know American history? I’d like to get a copy of his Ivy League GPA!  Colonists “colonized” the New World and even re-colonized America when they began the push to spread West throughout this country.

“My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy,” says Obama. Of course he got a standing ovation! What else could you expect while giving a speech about freedom in one of the least free countries on the planet and dissing one of the freest countries in existence today?

Ahem. (TAP ON THE SHOULDER)  Mr. Obama. Your job is to uphold the Constitution of the United States and to protect our shores from our enemies. The Constitution assigns the following powers to the President:

1. Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces: The President of the United States of America is the head of the U.S. Military. As Commander in Chief, he can authorize the use of troops overseas without declaring war. To declare war officially, he must get the approval of the Congress.

2. Make treaties, with two-thirds consent of the Senate.

3. Receive ambassadors and other public ministers from foreign countries.

4. Appoint ambassadors, Supreme Court justices, federal judges, and any officials as provided for by the Congress, with the approval of the Senate.

5. Give an Annual State of the Union Address to Congress. It is not your job to take over private or even public companies. It is not your job to “redistribute” wealth.

It is not your job to tell American’s how to educate their children. It is not your job to sanction same-sex marriages. It is not your job to promote abortion. It is not your job to trounce the Second Amendment. It is not your job to traipse around the world disrespecting your own country!

In his election speeches, Mr. Obama invokes his love for America. No such declarations were forthcoming in his  foreign speeches. Not once did he express an ounce of national pride. He never mentioned his own supposed Christian heritage but loudly proclaimed his Islamic roots. He correctly quoted the Quran (no teleprompter in sight) but never mentioned the Bible.

A recent article in Russia’s Pravda declared that “the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed.” According to the article, “The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe”

When a Russian newspaper correctly calls out the American President on liberty and freedom and IS SPOT ON, “Oh we got trouble (yes we got trouble) right here in River City (Right here!).”

When Treasury Secretary Timothy (the Dodger) Geithner, tells a Chinese audience of students and professors that China’s investment in America is safe and the entire audience bursts into laughter, we’ve got some major issues.   For goodness sakes, even the Communists think we’re a joke!

Obama, Emmanuel, Geithner and their friends — not the American sheeple — now own banks and car companies. They are also going after insurance companies, energy companies and health care companies. Don’t think for one minute that you will realize (or even see) one ounce of return on your tax payer dollars because you don’t own a thing!  

Oh, I’m sorry. You do own the debt, which you, your children, your children’s children and their children will be paying off for the next 500 years. That is if China doesn’t foreclose on us and take us fover because of the billions of dollars in loans we can’t pay back or if Russia (which is quickly reverting back to ITS Communist roots) doesn’t blow us off the planet before that.

If this lunacy is allowed to continue, in the future you WILL be told what kind of car you can drive and how much you can drive it. You WILL be told what energy to use and how much of it you can use. You WILL be told who you can use to provide your medical needs and how much you can use them. You WILL pay for babies you did not choose to have and unborn life will be slaughtered against your will and using your money to do it. If you are lucky enough to make a profit in your business, it WILL be taken away and given to those “unfortunates” who have chosen to drop out of school and have no discernible skills.

And for the record, I am NOT against Welfare. There are times in a person’s life when one needs a hand up and a hand out. I am against Government Assistance as a way of life. I am against Welfare as the family business.

Forget about your First Amendment Right to Free Speech because you’d better not protest the Obama Administrations actions or policies.  If you speak up, you are at best a complainer; at worst, both a racist and a domestic terrorist who should be put on a National Watch List.  If we don’t do something to change the devastating course this country is on, we are headed — fully — into a “Plantation Nation” where the only people who are truly free are the Liberal (and some RINO) politicians who are trying to enslave all of us.

Welcome to the United Socialist States (USS). All Hail your new Supreme Leader, Barack Hussein Obama. Now bow down. I mean bend over. And don’t forget to smile!


Life on Purpose!

mountain climberEveryday we are faced with the choice of whether or not to see the world through our own flawed lens, or whether to see it the way it really is; through God’s eyes.

Conventional wisdom tells us that the world sucks!  If you focus on the failing economy, prejudice, bigotry, crime, pollution, abuse and lack – then yes, our world sucks – BIG TIME!

But, if we are to truly succeed in this world, then we must always go to the highest place in ourselves.  We must make a habit of cutting through the BS and the nonsense and strive towards the penultimate place in our souls.  We must accept culpability for our own state of being – or we can ignore our own faultiness!

What does this mean?  Well, I’m glad you asked!

Today, you are a product of every, single decision you have ever made in the past.  The life you live now is not the result of what your parents did to you; what people said about you or even what may or may not have happened to you.  It is a product of who you believe yourself to be and how you react to what you believe to be the truth!

Let me climb off my high horse for a minute!  In the past, I have been a chronic shopper.   I have scores of clothes and items that still have price tags on them!  My Mother was a chronic shopper.  I shopped for shopping’s sake.  I didn’t’ even care if I was buying for me – as long as I was spending.  If you gave me a dollar, it had a half-life of ten minutes in my wallet!   My out of control spending resulted in no discernible savings on my part.   So, that when I had an emergency; I had a crisis.   When my car broke down; I had issues.  If a check was an hour late; I had problems.  Paying late charges weren’t an issue for me – it was a privilege that I took in order to stretch myself beyond my means.

I blamed everyone!  I blamed my parents; who could not afford to pay for my college.  So, I had to pay for myself.   I blamed my clients; obviously they weren’t paying me enough.  I blamed society; a Black woman is third class.  I blamed Black people; why can’t we hire our own?  I blamed God; if I was in this situation, He could not love me?  I blamed men;  What?I’m giving you what you need – give a Sister a break!  I blamed my siblings – I helped you b@##$$’s why can’t you help me?  But, in the end the blame laid itself at the true perpetrator – ME!

I couldn’t accept that I was the architect!  I wanted to look like everyone else; be like everyone else; act like everyone else; have what everyone else had.   And even though I was founded in God, I was not founded in myself!   And then I turned 40!

I was no longer the cute young thing.  I was the woman who looked younger than her actual age; an anomaly and a phenomenon. It was then that I made some critical decisions about how I wanted to live my life and what I wanted to be known for. (Dangling participle)

The Changeling

What I wanted was my authentic self. But, where was she?  What would my life look like if I could no longer indulge myself in my excuses?

What I discovered is that true courage is not doing what you think is right – it is doing the thing you are most afraid of in the midst of your fear – Changing!

I learned the lesson of adaptability.  I learned that change, whether it is one’s job, location or predominant beliefs — is not a bad thing.  It can lead to a path of outrageous happiness and joy!  Greed can be used for good, but change is better!

Dr. Wayne Dyer states that the top eighteen reasons that people cannot or will not change for success are:

  1. It’s too difficult.
  2. It’s too risky.
  3. It will take too much time.
  4. My family drama.
  5. I don’t deserve it
  6. It’s not in my nature.
  7. I can’t afford it.
  8. I have no support.
  9. It never happened before.
  10. I’m not strong enough.
  11. I’m not smart enough.
  12. I’m too old.
  13. I can only do what I’m doing now.
  14. The “rules” won’t let me.
  15. I lack of energy.
  16. My personal family history (divorce, abuse, youngest, oldest, middle child.)
  17. I’m too busy.
  18. I’m afraid.

And in Dyer fashion he proposes the following:

Become Aware

  • Always go to the highest place in yourself.  Be aware of what you are trying to achieve.  Awareness knows that you can do ALL things through God.

Recognize that all excuses are misalignments

  • Think like God thinks.  We don’t have to die to be able to do this and God never uses excuses.  He never claimed to be too tired to create a star.  You are a star!

Become contemplative

  • Contemplation is the highest form of activity.
  • What you think about, you become.
  • The Science of Success assumes your continual and positive use of your thoughts.

Become a willing human being

  • How willing are you to rid yourself of excuses by taking total responsibility for your life? How willing are you to surrender all to God and shed the things you will not do?  How willing are you to arrange the pieces that come your way and make them work for you?
  • Be willing to contemplate God. Remember the great and good things He has already done for you.
  • Detach yourself from the outcome. If it is yours, it will come to be.  If it is not yours, there is something better on the horizon!

Live a passion-filled life

  • If you have passion, the Universe will find a way to make your dreams come true!
  • If you have passion you will focus on your best life!
  • If you have passion, you won’t give up, no matter how hard the road may become.
  • If you have passion, you will NOT live without your heart’s desire!

Don’t complain/Never explain

  • You are what and who you are.  If you don’t like it, that’s not a good thing.   If you have to justify it – that’s even worse.

God always says “Yes” and “Amen”.  If you can visualize it – you can have it!  Think on the things you want to have.  Think on those things you want to be.  “They that keep their minds stayed on you (God) will be cast in perfect peace.”  Who you are and what you have is completely up to you and God.  Now go out there make your life a great success.

If you’ve never heard this before: I love you and I believe in YOU!


Are-you-living-your-life-on-purpose-Calgary-PsychThe gulf between fear and perceived reality is a minor one for me because I can choose what I want to believe!

I am not afraid of the dwindling economy.  I am not afraid of terrorists.  I am not afraid of the credit crunch.  I am not afraid of my home being foreclosed.  I am not afraid that I will be out of work forever.   I am not afraid of running out of food.  I am not afraid of running out of money.  I am not afraid that my son cannot attend his school. I am not afraid of home invaders or robbers.   I am not afraid of the IRS.  I am even not afraid that my car will break down.  I am simply not afraid.

Fear is not an option in my life.  I have a promise from God that “All things will work together for good, for those who love Him…”  And I am standing on that promise!  I no longer live in the economy of this world and so, I am no longer afraid of its repercussions.   I give because I want to – I have to – give!

I stand confident on that promise!  I believe that God would bankrupt Heaven on my behalf!   I believe that if I were the only human on Earth, he would have sent a Savior just for me!

He created the Heavens so that I could have something to look at.  He created flowers so that I could have something nice to smell.  He created the mountains so I could have something big to climb.  He created the seas so that I could have something vast to swim.  He created the sand so something would feel warm on my skin.  He created the Moon so that I could read at night.

I choose God’s Word over the “Wisdom” of our American culture.  I choose Life!

I choose to not be afraid.  I choose not to take a path that will leave me shaking in my shoes.   I choose what I will think about.  I choose what I will become.  I choose who I am today.  I choose truth above the lies that this world’s society presents to me.

I choose.  I choose.  I choose.  And in the end – I will win.  Because God said so!
