I didn't come to where I am overnight (and I'm sure I have so much more to learn!).
I first started learning about "how the world really works" about 10 years ago when my first born said he wanted to join the military. I started researching about vaccines and how he could maybe get a medical waiver and avoid that danger. I learned then that our boys are just cannon fodder for the global elite (both sides are funded by the same guys at the top who profit from it). That was hard to wrap my mind around, and it took a few years! That began a trip down the "rabbit hole" that still hasn't ended!
I already thought outside the box with home schooling and natural health, so it wasn't too far fetched to find how we've been deceived about so much. It really all connects - follow the money as they say! Like I said, I've been connecting the dots for 10+ years now. And many seeds were planted in my life for years before that.
The history we are taught, the propaganda we hear and read from the news outlets is all so skewed. There is so much wrong with our government, most people have no idea.
I just ask and hope that you will do some of your own research and not just dismiss what is hard to hear. It was hard for me when I first came upon it.

Should We Ask God To Bless the Troops?
Vance, well said, as always...
"...Pray that the troops don’t shed innocent blood. Pray that the troops don’t commit suicide. Pray for pastors to stop recommending military service to their young people. Pray for Christian families to stop supplying cannon fodder to the military. Pray that the troops come home. Pray that young people find employment instead of join the military. Pray for the end of military recruiters preying on young, impressionable students. Pray for an end to senseless foreign wars. Pray for an end to the U.S. empire of troops and bases that encircles the globe.
I personally think praying they won't commit suicide is asking God to bless them and their families!

All mainstream media focus is being placed on “illegal drugs”, like cocaine and methamphetamines. There are even television shows that regularly show police and drug enforcement officers catching and arresting drug users. However, we need to change our focus and take a good look at prescription drugs.
More and more we are finding that these drugs are not developed as cures, but are made to keep people addicted to them and generate huge profits for the pharmaceutical industry. We are seeing a proliferation of children addicted to mood altering drugs, just as their parents have been for decades. When a child is active and disruptive in school the teachers are taught to immediately label them ADD or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and push pills as a solution. These drugs, although having been found to cause severe depression and suicide, are still being pushed to desperate, ignorant parents. (If you ask me all some of these kids need is a good butt whipping.)
We see that these drugs are being prescribed for people that just need a little better nutrition and exercise. For example, I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes seven years ago. I was given a prescription for the “disease”. A month later I attended an off shore conference and found out how I could eliminate diabetes completely. I changed my diet, stopped taking the pills and never tested positive for diabetes again.
Another problem is the fact that so called epidemics and pandemics are being manufactured so that drugs can be developed and given to people without legal ramifications for Big Pharma when people are killed or otherwise maimed by the effects of the drugs.
Please watch the video below and educate your friends and family about the real problem – “legal” prescription drugs being pushed by the pharmaceutical industry.

I'm afraid that things like this really make me think that the media just fans the flames and provides more ways to distract and divide us....What's really happening in the world they don't want us to pay attention to?
I haven't seen or heard any of the news accounts, so I can't comment on what's been said or how it's been twisted. (We haven't had a TV since 1994 and I pick and choose what news I spend my time, emotions and brain on.) I really don't care to be stirred up and manipulated by the mainstream media -whether left or right- on the issue.
If Christians were more Christ-like we'd have more impact on our society on all kinds of people.... I support CFA (and Hobby Lobby) more for being closed on the Lord's Day. God cares more about that issue (the 4th Commandment) than the one in the news right now.... really folks....As far as rights, there is no such thing as group rights, only individual rights. We all need to learn the difference....
And the media hasn't been unbiased since before my time, at least! I could write much more on everything I touched on, but time doesn't allow....

How about this:
Sweet Potato Leaves (homegrown)
Swiss Chard (homegrown)
one Scotch Bonnet pepper (homegrown)
Four homemade Polish Sausages
The Scotch Bonnet was SO hot that we added:
one quart of Garbanzo Beans (home canned)
one can of organic diced Tomatoes (Costco)
And we washed it all down with home brewed Kombucha!
The Scotch Bonnet heat is the kind that is accumulative~ okay at first, but at the end it was almost all you could do to eat it! (Adrienne thought Kombucha did a better job cutting the heat than Orange Juice.) No salt or pepper or anything else needed. Very good flavor with just the ingredients listed above....
The bottom line? It was really good...too bad you weren't here!
Tuesday, July 3, 2012
The first time we made this the tomatoes were pretty weak and watery so we ended up using 1 1/2 jars (10-11oz) of Italian tomato paste. This year we used one 7oz jar and maybe didn't need it.
We did add extra lime juice (2T), salt (2t.), cumin (1t.) and garlic (1/2t.) this year.....we ended up with hotter jalapenos, or using more of them, plus 3 Scottish Bonnets in the pepper mix. It's much hotter than last year's batch. (Adrienne keeps sneezing!) But still good!

Like many of you, I sat in disbelief as I watched Rand Paul publicly endorse a gun-grabbing, healthcare-socializing, flip-flopping, border-opening, war-mongering, banker-controlled statist puppet.
I immediately felt like I'd been simultaneously kicked in the gut, stabbed in the back, and sold down the river. Yes, the endorsement made me angry. The realization that Ron Paul, himself, must have given his blessing to the endorsement made me feel ill.
I scoured the Internet looking for answers to some burning questions. Why did Rand Paul endorse Romney? Have they made some shady backroom deal? Was Ron Paul in on it? Had I been played for a fool? Have I been wrong all along?
Although I haven't found the answers to those specific questions, I've found something far more valuable. I've found that the liberty movement is still going strong.
I am not alone and neither are you. The blogosphere is ablaze with negative talk of Rand Paul and Ron Paul, calling them sell-outs, traitors, and con-men. And, like it or not, this is a very good thing.
At first, I'll admit, it broke my heart to see widespread negativity about the Pauls who I had come to view as champions of liberty. But I've gained a new perspective. As far as champions of liberty go, the champions aren't nearly as important as the liberty!
Where I may have lost some respect for the Pauls, I've gained immeasurable respect for everyone in the liberty movement. We are not anti-war protesters who stayed home when Obama expanded the wars. We are not advocates of small government who turned a blind eye to Bush's PATRIOT Act. No. We refuse to partake in the hypocrisy and flip-flopping of the two-party system where we follow our leaders like sheep. We are consistent even when our representatives are not. Our beliefs do not shift, or bend, or change depending on the political climate. We do not place the messenger above the message.
Yes, we may feel betrayed, but we must never forget the lessons we've learned from Ron Paul about individual liberty, personal responsibility, sound money, cooperation, property rights, charity, and voluntarism. We don't believe in these concepts because Ron Paul believes in them, but because they are true. Ron Paul will always be a hero in the freedom movement for shining a light on these issues.
So I don't care if Rand Paul endorses Mitt Romney. I will continue to endorse liberty. I don't care if Ron Paul concedes defeat. I will continue fighting for victory.
The Ron Paul revolution is NOT about Ron Paul. The revolution is about liberty. Ron Paul is only one man. You are the revolution.

An embedded song:

by Julia Ward Howe, 1870Arise, all women who have hearts, Whether our baptism be of water or of tears!
Say firmly: "We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies, Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience. We, the women of one country, will be too tender of those of another country To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."
From the bosom of the devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice." Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession. As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil at the summons of war, Let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead. Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means Whereby the great human family can live in peace, Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar, But of God.
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask That a general congress of women without limit of nationality May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient And at the earliest period consistent with its objects, To promote the alliance of the different nationalities, The amicable settlement of international questions,
The great and general interests of peace.

House Passes CISPA in Surprise Vote; Opponents Will Continue to Fight in Senate (click for original post)
Friday, 27 April 2012 11:20 By Mike Ludwig, Truthout | Report
The House passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) in a surprise vote late Thursday despite a veto threat from the White House and opposition from civil liberties groups that say the bill undermines existing privacy law and would allow private companies to spy on American citizens.
The House passed CISPA by a vote of 248 to 168, with votes for and against coming in from both parties. A vote was expected on Friday, but the House came to a vote soon after debating the bill. The Senate will now consider the bill.
CISPA is designed to break down barriers between the government and private business and allow for open sharing of intelligence on cyber threats, such as foreign hackers. Big tech and web firms, including Facebook, AT&T and IBM, support CISPA and hope the government will provide them more information on cyber threats.
Civil liberties and Internet freedom groups such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the ACLU claim the bill goes too far and would allow private companies and the government to circumvent existing privacy laws that prevent domestic spying and allow big web firms to hand over private data and information, such as emails, to the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies. The ACLU and the EFF say they will continue to oppose the bill in the Senate.
"Cybersecurity does not have to mean abdication of Americans' online privacy," said ACLU legislative counsel Michelle Richardson. "As we've seen repeatedly, once the government gets expansive national security authorities, there's no going back."
Senior White House officials said Wednesday that President Obama would veto CISPA because the bill fails to protect personal privacy and does not do enough to protect the nation's core cyber infrastructure.
With online momentum leftover from the fight against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), activists launched a massive Internet campaign to stop CISPA that included more than 100,000 Tweets to members of Congress and more than one million petition signatures.
"Hundreds of thousands of Internet users spoke out against this bill, and their numbers will only grow as we move this debate to the Senate," said EFF Activism Director Rainey Reitman.
CISPA's opponents also claimed that the government could use personal information gathered by private companies to crackdown on citizens for a variety of offenses beyond cybersecurity, such as late taxes or immigration violations. Lawmakers recently worked with civil liberties groups, however, to pass amendments clarifying that the government can only use intelligence gathered under the act to address cybersecurity threats, threats to national security, threat of bodily harm to individuals and child pornography.
The House rejected additional amendments offered by Democrats and supported by CISPA opponents that would have prevented information from private citizens from landing in the hands of the National Security Administration, which was caught in 2006 working with AT&T to data mine Internet traffic and gather thousands of phone records from customers.

"In the final analysis," I wrote in my new book The Revolution: A Manifesto, "the last line of defense in support of freedom and the Constitution consists of the people themselves. If the people want to be free, if they want to lift themselves out from underneath a state apparatus that threatens their liberties, squanders their resources on needless wars, destroys the value of their dollar, and spews forth endless propaganda about how indispensable it is and how lost we would all be without it, there is no force that can stop them."
Our time has come to act on these words.
May future generations look back on our work and say that these were men and women who, in a moment of great crisis, stood up to their politicians, the opinion-makers, and the establishment, and saved their country.

After the Vietnam War, hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans suffered toxic reactions, neurological damage, and rare cancers due to exposure to 2,4,5,-D and 2,4,5-T dioxin that was used in the form of the defoliant Agent Orange. Unfortunately, the U.S. military denied the problem and failed to heed any of the lessons of this chemical butchery. Instead, it expanded its harmful legacy to the current generation of soldiers and civilians exposed to new, more deadly chemical toxins in the Persian Gulf.
Join accomplished filmmaker Gary Null, PhD, as he explores the real truth about Gulf War Syndrome and the secrets about chemical and germ warfare that the U.S. government is hiding from its veterans and the public. Dr. Null uncovers the hidden truths about Gulf War Syndrome, including the deadly and toxic effects of armor-piercing radioactive depleted uranium, the use of experimental and risky vaccines on over 1,100,000 U.S. troops, and the indescribable chemical contamination and environmental devastation that the military caused during the Persian Gulf Wars.In this film, Dr. Null relies on compelling testimony from eyewitnesses who served in the military, leading doctors and scientists who specialize in chemical exposure, and those veterans still suffering from the effects of their tours of duty.

Have you ever thought much about the Japanese Internment (Concentration) Camps?
Section 1 of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution:
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws..."
We just threw that out the window, the government had no respect of persons. Some will try to tell you that "we did it for their own safety" - but that's just not true. If it were true, things would have been done a lot differently.
(Look around on YouTube, there's lots more...)found here) "...Through her work with farm families and migrant workers during the Great Depression, photographer Dorothea Lange was familiar with images of displacement. But, when she was hired by the War Relocation Authority to document life in Japanese neighborhoods, processing centers, and camp facilities, the racial and civil rights issues added a new dimension. “What was horrifying was to do this thing completely on the basis of what blood may be coursing through a person’s veins, nothing else. Nothing to do with your affiliations or friendships or associations. Just blood,” Lange said. As the Library of Congress wrote, “Lange quickly found herself at odds with her employer and her subjects’ persecutors, the United States Government.”..."
10 min. Documentary:
Photo Title: "Oakland, Calif., Mar. 1942. A large sign reading "I am an American" placed in the window of a store, at 13th and Franklin streets, on December 8, the day after Pearl Harbor. The store was closed following orders to persons of Japanese descent to evacuate from certain West Coast areas. The owner, a University of California graduate, will be housed with hundreds of evacuees in War Relocation Authority centers for the duration of the war."
Or so they said...did you know that we shot people who got "too close to the fence"? And after the war was over, we did not necessarily send/take people home again- we shipped some of them to strange foreign countries. (The "Institute of Texan Cultures" in San Antonino, Texas has a really good section about this very topic. It is a great (& large) museum, you should go if you are in the area.) ...I wonder if this family did get to go back...?
"...what corporate media tends to omit is that the U.S. fought that war against racism with a segregated army. It fought the war to end atrocities by participating in the shooting of surrendering soldiers, the starvation of POWs, the deliberate bombing of civilians, wiping out hospitals, strafing lifeboats... And Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the leader of this anti-racist, anti-atrocity force, signed Executive Order 9066 in February 1942, interning over 100,000 Japanese-Americans without due process. Thus, in the name of taking on the architects of German prison camps he became the architect of American prison camps...." (source)

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
And I say, what are you going to do if they (or your own government) come for your neighbors?
Who did Jesus say are our neighbors?
We are ALL neighbors....the Indians, Africans, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Mexicans, North & South Koreans, Germans, Oklahomans & Texans, People from Lone Oak & Campbell...and the list goes on...never, never ending...
People say we are a "Christian nation", but do we behave like one?

Please go "Google"/search or YouTube Bonus Marchers or Bonus Army. (did you know in 2009 there were 106,558 homeless veterans? click here for charts or here for an article Just imagine how many more there are today, as the US economy so much worse now. Sad- really sad.
Can you really blame these men for making their voices heard? Can you imagine the despair they felt? In 2010 alone, 950 solders/veterans tried to commit suicide per-month, and 18 a day actually are "successful".
I quote from an ArmyTimes article: "Troubling new data show there are an average of 950 suicide attempts each month by veterans who are receiving some type of treatment from the Veterans Affairs Department. Seven percent of the attempts are successful, and 11 percent of those who don’t succeed on the first attempt try again within nine months. The numbers, which come at a time when VA is strengthening its suicide prevention programs, show about 18 veteran suicides a day, about five by veterans who are receiving VA care...the VA’s suicide hotline has been receiving about 10,000 calls a month from current and former service members..." click here for the rest of the story....
