    Machine, Since you dealt with a lot of subjects in your last blog to me, I will deal with a little at a time so my posts won’t be so big since Ryan is unhappy with me. It seems fairly easy to me for a person to skip over blogs that they don’t want to read. Anyway, there are many posts on here that I don’t care to read on here but I figure they have their “right” to talk what they believe. It is called “freedom of press and/or freedom of speech” even though that is really only justified with the mass media, so to speak. First you said that I am NOT “gay”. I am at times but since I haven’t seen my kids or wife in about 4 years, I am sad most of the time. By the way, “gay” means “happy, light hearted”. It doesn’t not mean “perverted sex” as some seem to think today. We are changing the meaning of words continually and that is not only sad but dangerous. People are not understanding where others are coming from in these last days..I have a peace and joy within that the world can’t take from me but happiness depends on what happens around you. There is so many that I know whether in my family or the family I came from or the family of God that I am a part of are going through some of the hardest times in their lives. That makes me sad. Jesus Christ prayed that his people, those who have been born of him to have the joy that he has and he prayed that about the time that he went to the cross for our sins. That is incredible to me. I think I told you that I have been pounded on, spit on, cussed out, threatened, etc. but I keep on going and not only going but I love those people who seek to do evil to me. Jesus died for them as he did for me. He will give his people victory as they look to him.
    You said that you “don’t condemn me for my choices, AS LONG as I am able to live and let live.” I capitalized a couple of words in your statement so it will stand out. That sounds so very good Machine but it is nonsense. SO based on your statement you DO CONDEMN me if I disagree with your “live and let live”. You went on to say that homosexuals are born that way, which isn’t anywhere close to truth. Most people who become homos are from one parent families which gives them a warped sense of family life, others have been messed with by an older person as a kid, some have been brainwashed to thinking they were born that way, etc. If I think (abortion) baby killing is all right then I am all right with you. Then again if I think abortion, baby killing, is murder then that too is all right with you. BUT if I “believe” it and seek to get others to stop the killing of innocent life in the womb, that is NOT all right with you. You are just going to live and let live if people agree with your position, RIGHT? If I tell others that it is murder then I am NOT all right with you, RIGHT?

      That is a disturbing story.

      There are many strores everyday from all over the world that cause me to weep!

      Man has this suposed greatness over any other animal…Is capable of such humainly great and wonderful things, but still man acts like the worst beast.

      In this particular artical, those who are guilty of abduction and violating another humanbeing have lost their humanity toward man. Unfortuanitly any violent retaliation would prove the same.

      People must learn how to disarm their agressor without violence. True it is not an easy task, but neither is killing since it does not bring a resolution; history proves this…As does our present situation.

      I do not agree that any religion/belief, Government, or dehumanizing law be pushed/forced upon another person. For any religious organization to do so is actually foolish, since by forcing someone to convert means their heart is not purely commited…Seems like it would cheapen and weaken the religion.

      I left you a reply yesterday 4/7 regarding Slavery, Homosexuality, Abortion…did you read it????

        Ekkman said, “Based on your words above, wouldn’t you agree that YOU HAVE “lost your humanity toward man”? I mean you are for killing the most innocent life there is, the life of the preborn baby in the womb of his or her mother. I can also guarantee you that the baby is totally disarmed so you do NOT need to learn how to disarm them either.

        Machine, Yes I read your article to me and I replied to it. It was pretty long reply so I figured when I checked about 12 hours later and it still said, “awaiting moderation”, I should upload it again but in sections. After I did that a little while ago, I NOW see the long one finally appeared without “awaiting moderation” tag at the top so I figured it was on too now. Oh well, I guess Ryan will be unhappy with me again. What can I say?

        Machine, As far as the Muslims forcing their “religion” on people and you saying that their heart would not be in it. That is a fairly true statement but check out history, the Roman Catholic Church forced their religion on most of the known world for over a thousand years and “forced” everyone to submit to them. It is basically the same principle as the government is doing. You seem to think that the fact of force won’t work but it has for years and will again. The government is forcing all kinds of things down our throats, so to speak, and they are getting by with it. They are in power just as the Roman Catholic Church was for a long time. Power can corrupt but it doesn’t necessarily have to.

    I have shared with quite a few homosexuals and I see clearer why God said that he gave them over to a reprobate mind in Romans 1 of the bible (KJV). The things they do to each other and to themselves and to kids is incredibly evil. In one way, I too don’t separate “slavery and homosexuality”, both are sins and evil to the max. I love the homosexual enough that I am willing to become his enemy by sharing truth with him that will set him free from his lifestyle, deathstyle. I will be preaching on TV showing the parallels with Slavery, Abortion and Euthanasia. They tie hand in hand. Through most of mankind’s history sin has been running rampant, so I agree that homosexuality has been around a long time since sin has been around a long time.
    Now we go to this part of my answer to your last post, you said, “Holding society to blame for their demise, based on excepting homosexuality to be normal, is just as rediculous as the rehtoric that if you legalize marijuana everyone will smoke it. Yet to not socially speak out against slavery, and I’ll add genocide and intentional famine , will and does destroy nations, cultures, races by cheapening our ability to uphold human rights…history holds truth to that.”
    Here you tied things together that don’t really go together, that being marijuana with slavery, genocide, and famine. Marijuana has nothing to do with the three that you tied in with it. Legalizing a drug will increase the use of it, that is a proven fact. When booze, and cigarettes were legalized, they have become the two highest killers of all drugs since they are legal. The same would transpire with marijuana. The same truth holds sway with abortion, since it has been legalized it has grown to enormous proportions. We are averaging killing about 4,500 babies a day in the womb or thereabouts. As the old saying goes, “If God doesn’t destroy America soon, he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah for destroying those towns because of their homosexual behavior.” They were wicked towns.
    Machine, All of mankind NEEDS the Lord Jesus Christ. Preference is NOT the answer. If a woman’s preference is to kill her unborn baby that is fine with you but if another chooses not to kill her unborn baby then that too is fine with you too. You are a true humanitarian, I can easily see that. SO surely you should not be against people killing other people for social reasons too. I mean if you are for killing the most innocent life on this planet, the preborn baby, then you surely would be for killing parents, or other older people not really fit for our society anymore, they are not contributing to it. Would that be correct guess to make concerning what you told me in your last post?
    Only those who come to God through the Lord Jesus Christ are the forgiven ones. God came in human flesh, he became a man to set us free from sin. If we could get to heaven on our own merits, Jesus Christ was a total idiot to go through what he went through to free us from sin if it was not absolutely needed to set us free. I surely don’t see how you could have liked my article on the hate law based on what you are saying here. I await your reply there too.
    I have other things that I will cover later to do with such as the Muslims, your prison experience really shocked me, and your views of Christians seems really warped.

    Ryan, HOW does it “burden” the server? It automatically posts just as soon as I type it? Please explain. Many times I don’t know why someone is saying something because I don’t know who they are talking to or what the other person said. I am on other blog sites and they don’t have any problem with me doing it that way. The people can see what the other said right away and see my reply, sorry it bugs you. People, this one is for Ryan, go on this page and find what he said to me. Thanks!
    I had to go back up this list of blogs and see what else Ryan said since I didn’t want to hurt his feeling again. Those who have the same problem as Ryan has with me then please let me know and why it is a problem. Thanks again!

      Simply that it requires more bandwidth to accomodate the extra text. I used to work for an Internet website. We were always pushing the limits of the servers due to chat. That was years ago so things might not be the same… Servers are better now. The point is though that it’s redundant to post the messages of others that are already available for viewing. Further that it is confusing to read two messages in one post. That is why they have the reply button in the upper corner in each message; so people know who you are responding to. And where the original post was in context to other posts.

      Anyway it’s a request. And I thought you may not have noticed the reply button in the upper right corner before. You may notice nobody else posts the way you have been. I also noticed that you said a few times you couldn’t find the message people had posted to you; that’s beacuase they post in response to your message by hitting the reply (it won’t appear at the top of the list, but rather immediately after the post they responded to). If you use the “leave a reply” button at the bottom of the thread it always appears at the top of the list. That’s intended to be used for your first post in a given thread, or if you want to make a post not directed at a particular person.
      Hope this helps.

    “Any other “ism” would then have to include Chritianityism. Which means the philosophy of christianity

    “Why do I have to agree with you on every point you believe in in order to be happy for you. We are both peaceful and compassionate men. I know in my heart that we both suffer in this world. You are not a threat to me because of what you choose to believe…and how you live. I personaly haven’t read anything that says you are a Fanaticall Christian Fundamentalist plotting to kill in the name of God. Are you??? Your views…my views…may differ some, but really not so much. I am not going to try and convince you that you should choose the path I have chosen. You have already chosen to follow what you believe is the RIGHT WAY for you. If you were to ask me about my faith I would share it with you by spending time with you. At that point if you wanted to know more I would say seek it for yourself, it isn’t up to me to make you see things my way. I chose my path, not by accedent, not by admiration for buddists or monks, priests or poets. I know they are not deified. You certainly have a right to make decisions based on what you believe. Even better is that I know you would still choose to follow Christ (your Lord and saviour) even if the Government told you that you no longer could and threatened to kill you if you continued to practice and preach the word of God. I would do the same. I would give my life (not take anothers). Thank God we live in America!

    “Now as far as abortion and homosexuality…I have not shared with you where I stand. But I will say that I disagree that homosexuals are “getting special rights”, the only rights they are marching for are the same rights you and I have. The same CIVIL RIGHTS blacks faught for in the ’60s. The right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness! EQUALITY!! That the media makes a tabloid spectical of their fight for these rights, and that certain politicians are cowardly and take the safe platform against their rights…isn’t at all SPECIAL!!! It’s dehumanizing, and underminding to all of us to deny any American that which is stated in our Declaration of Independence.

    I will read your artical.”

    Ekkman said:
    Machine, I GUESS you can say that there is a “RIGHT WAY” for me and then there is another “RIGHT WAY” for you if you want to say that even though it doesn’t make any sense except to those who tell me that there are NO absolutes. Truth it truth for one person as well as another. If your logic stands then it would be right for some to own slaves and for others to not own slaves. It would be right for one woman to kill her baby in the womb and wrong for another woman to kill her baby in the womb, It would be right for one man to have sex with another man AND right for a man to have sex with a woman BUT it could be wrong for another man to have sex with a man or another man to have sex with a women, all based on preference from what I am reading. Am I reading you correctly? We are people, God’s highest creatures within his creation BUT we act like his lowest because of sin. We do things that animals won’t do. We kill our preborn for social reasons such as wanting to finish college, keep our figures looking nice, to keep our parents from finding out, etc. Common sense tells us that a woman’s body is compatible with a man’s body, the organs in the proper place for procreation. That same common sense tells us that a man with a man is totally out of place, so to speak besides the inner voice, conviction from within that tells us that it is wrong.
    The post that I was speaking of was when you said that “you are tired of the posts dealing with abortion and homosexuality” (something to that effect) like it was been decided on by our government and it is a closed case. Abortion and homosexuality have been legalized so let it go, so to speak. I didn’t check back to find it so correct me if I am wrong. I guess I can look for it later.
    If the place above where I shared your comments at an earlier without quoting exactly, I was going by memory then please share with me where you stand on homosexuality and abortion. Thanks!
    Anyway, thanks for telling me that you will read the article that I wrote entitled, “Don’t be a Bird Brain? Disagreement or Hate! Which is it?”

      Request for normal messaging: I’m sure others have had the same thought as I have but just haven’t said anything about it…
      Ekkman, why don’t you just hit the “Reply” button in the upper right hand corner of any message that you want to respond to?
      It’s very annoying to have two posts from two different people in the same message.
      … I imagine it also burdens the server with redundant text. Please.

      Really!? Is that what you interpret my “logic”, as you call it, to be… According to you it really is impossable for man to “not be an asshole”. According to you man is not capable of seperating the issue of slavery from homosexuality…One being servtitude, the other being in born; not a violation against another person human/civil liberty. I bet you’re not gay because you are not sexually attracted to another man; you don’t desire an intamite and monogamous relationship with the same sex…not because you believe in what the bible says. So it is easy for you to dismiss homosexuality as being morally wrong, disgusting and a cause for social breakdown. I too am not gay, but only because I do not desire a sexual or an intimate relationship with the same sex, thats the only reason. I do not find it to be necessary or humain to deny another individual their way in life. Which is why I don’t condem you for your choices, as long as you are able to live and let live… I don’t go out and preach the Bible in protest of a lifestyle. Nor do I preach against those who believe in its stories and philosophies.
      All through out the history of mankind homosexuality has existed…It hasn’t destroyed society in any one way or another. Unlike…
      Slavery on the other hand…Is inhumain.It robs people of their culture and creed and ability to self govern. I will always stand to protest slavery…No one is free when someone is bound by serfdom.
      Holding society to blame for their demise, based on excepting homosexuality to be normal, is just as rediculous as the rehtoric that if you legalize marijuana everyone will smoke it. Yet to not socially speak out against slavery, and I’ll add genocide and intentional famine , will and does destroy nations, cultures, races by cheapening our ability to uphold human rights…history holds truth to that.

      As for adortion I am not against the practice. I don’t cosider a woman’s womb to be subject to public opinion or the teachings of the bible…Why not the teachings of the Bible? All Holy scriptures were writen by man to be fitting to the gains and needs of the Church, Temple, Monisatary, and Government. Not the wellbeing of the woman.This isn’t to say that there are not good teachings in the Bible, or any Holy scripture for that matter. However, I support a womans personal choice. In other words if a woman is not okay with having an abortion and chooses to carry her offspring to delivery…than that is her personal choice. If she makes that decision on what the Bible says than that too is a personal choice. I’d feel the same way if the issue of abortion was forcing a person to have an abortion against their will. In general I don’t subscrib to the practice of personal opinions and beliefs being pushed and forced onto others by the self-righteous.; be they Christian, Buddist, Islamic, Jewish, Muslim, etc.
      It is true you follow your belief and see it as the ONLY WAY, and therefore dismiss all others as being lessthan. That’s disrespect. Your tone comes across condesending and at times hostle…Reminds me of when I was in prison and the Bible thumping born again Christians would preach love and fellowship during service, then ridicule, undermind, and at times physically attack others for having their own beliefs that didn’t line up with what they believed.The worst was always between Catholics and Christians. But it was the Buddist and Muslims that never, NEVER raised a fist, but continued to practice love and humanity regardless of being disrespected and persecuted. Tell me, were those Christians teaching the wrath of God? I don’t think they were…It was by their ignorance and fear. And you and I both know that such hostility is not limited to prison; such outburst happen everyday in the world because of ignorance, fear, self rightiousness, entitlement, false supperiority and disrespect. And it is not just Christians. People of ALL faiths and practices seem to fall victim of themselves by misguided interpretations. We both know man is faulable; Me, You, Gandhi…Buddist, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims… All will be tested, held accountable, and forgiven,me, you…

      I enjoyed your artical, actually read several. I post some feed back soon.

    Nicholas,
    Weapons will never ‘protect’ us from those who hate us. If it is their ‘intent’ to hate and destroy us they will. True protection is to be righteous, loving, sharing and kind in all our actions.
    World peace, of course, begins with each of us as individuals….forgiving ourselves than others…..loving ourselves than others. This was the message of Christ – the Kingdom is within…it develops from the inner world to the outer world. He also said, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” At his period in history the Roman empire ruled solidly with no individual rights. Christ could not bring his inner hope of individual power and sovereignty to fruit during those dark times. Today with our U.S. Constitution put in place so ingeniously by the founding fathers and mothers as a ‘future’ government we do have the framework and opportunity to ‘create from within’ a magnificent ‘world kingdom’ so hoped for by Christ and our Founding Fathers and Mothers. FUTURE is always malleable. Let us be inspired by their examples and their sacrifices to bring PEACE ON EARTH and GOODWILL AMONG ALL TRIBES.

    Sorry to disappoint you Mary but Christ Jesus most definitely did bring inner peace to a point that cannot be comprehended. The Jesus Christ that gave his people an inner peace and power promised he would be with them even until the end of the world. He will not forsake his people, those looking to him for help. I think of John Huss again, The Roman Catholic Church was burning him on the stake and he was singing praises to the Lord Jesus Christ. Incredible! I have been through some tough time and a little spooky but nothing like Huss went through. I never know what tomorrow holds BUT I know who holds tomorrow. He is a totally awesome God!

    “I am happy for you. You have a faith that is meaningful and fullfilling. So do I and I always take time to be thankful for that which spiritually lifts and guides me.

    “I don’t agree that our government is responsable for individual choices…such as placing laws against abortion and homosexuality. Such lifestyles and actions are between God and that person not the government.”

    Ekkman said:
    Machine, I am glad that you are happy for me. My mind keeps going back to Gandhi since you brought him up in another post and your views on abortion and homosexuality. The government is not really against homosexality just as they are not against abortion (baby killing). I have been to some of the homos’ marches and they are getting special rights all the time. I DO NOT see how you could sincerely be happy for me since my beliefs totally disagree with yours. I am NOT happy with your beliefs nor could I pretend that I am. I told you before that if a person agreees with all religions then he is a non-thinking person. Religion is in total disagreement with each other from humanism to atheism to Confusiciousism to Mohammandism to any other ism. Some of those are made up words but I think you get where I am coming from. I just talked to a Buddahist today and I told her that I don’t know of anywhere that he claimed to be God, he claimed to be a way “show-er” BUT Jesus Christ claimed to be the way and Buddah didn’t show anyone the way to Jesus Christ that I know of, hence he is the showing the “wrong way”. But the lady that I was talking to didn’t seem to care, she grew up with him, so to speak. But a lot of people have come out from under their false “messiahs” or “christs” or whatever name I can give you. Jesus Christ is the name above ever name and at his name EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue will confess that he is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
    You are totally in line with the government on this issue, they are seeking to convince us that all are right under their wing and to disagee with them is called hate in their book. Check out my article entitled, “Don’t be a bird brain! Disagreement or Hate? Which is it?”

    “Ekkman, Thank you for your response. You are so right, over 10 million people died in the Crusades. People died because of their personal belief system. The Peace Pledge is my attempt to carry a worldwide movement which, yes, is simple, yet rational. If everyone ‘agrees’ that to murder a human being is wrong than we could simply have lively disagreements over beliefs, interpretations of history etc. without the suffering of human deaths. The U.S. spends over 600 Billion yearly on arms. Why? Simply because defense industries demand it. The ‘illusion’ of terrorists here to kill us….is just that…..an ‘orchestrated illusion’. What we need more than health care bill to benefit greedy drug and insurance companies is an independent investigation of 9/11 to expose the true terrorists….Bushs and Cheney.”

    Ekkman said, Regarding the crusades since the Roman Catholic Church was in control of most of the known world, much of history is hard to determine. Some historians said as high as 65 million were killed. As far as your peace pledge is concerned, mankind is fickle. That is why the Lord Jesus Christ didn’t commit to man.
    Yea, I believe that our government was behind the Twin Towers in NY, Oklahoma City tragedy, Ruby Ridge in Idaho, and Waco, Texas slaughter. They were seeing what we would do about it and not much to speak of transpired because of these acts but to take more freedoms from the people.
    I think about the Lord Jesus Christ and his words on mankind.
    ” 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
    “25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.” Because of their sin nature, they were praising him one day and a few days later they were hollering, “Crucify him, crucify him”. Jesus came to die to give us his life within so we would have the power, the desire to do what is right. It is not forced upon us, we choose him and then we submit to him daily to see his will accomplished in our lives.
    Turning over a new leaf doesn’t help, we need new life and that life is in the Lord Jesus Christ, not in any religion or religious leader. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to GOD.

    Machine, It is good that you admitted that you “believe” in God, everyone does. God put it within us to know that there is a God but that doesn’t save anyone. We must see our need for God, that is why the Lord Jesus Christ came to set us free from sin that is within all of us. We MUST be delivered from it to go to be with the Lord when we die. We pass on to another life, heaven or hell, it is our choice based on what we do with the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus told the most religious people of his day that they were of their father, the devil. That is why Jesus Christ said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” The born again experience is needed since we are all born “dead” to God because of mankind’s first parents, Adam and Eve. The born again experience is NOT reincarnation or anything like that. It is receiving the Lord Jesus Christ into your life then you are born again, born from above. The word of God also says, “But as many as received him (Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
    Believing with your heart, life system, is receiving him into your life. He moves in and makes you a new creature in him. He is an awesome God.
    Also you mentioned another blog of mine. Yea, I do tell people that if God’s people truly repented and got right with him then we would probably get someone like Ron Paul to get this country back on track. Bringing it back like it was at one time. Someone who is into the constitution since the constitution was based on God’s word. That is one reason why we have scriptures all over the walls of federal buildings in Washington, D.C. As I said before, we have turned our backs on God/Jesus Christ as a nation and now we are suffering in many ways because of it. But we are just as the beginnnings of sorrows. Payday is coming for America now. Crimes have been legalized such as abortion (baby murder), sexual sins such as homosexuality, adultery, fornication, etc. Have you watched any of Gerald Celente’s videos on YouTube? I don’t think he is a Christian but many things he says lines up with the word of God. Things that will probably take place in these last days. He did one called Obamageddon. Check it out!

      I am happy for you. You have a faith that is meaningful and fullfilling. So do I and I always take time to be thankful for that which spiritually lifts and guides me.

      I don’t agree that our government is responsable for individual choices…such as placing laws against abortion and homosexuality. Such lifestyles and actions are between God and that person not the government.

    There are many “christs” but only one true “Christ” Jesus. He came to establish a spiritual kingdom comprised of those who have been born of his Spirit. I agree that religion has been the cause of needless suffering and pain. Check if Jesus Christ came to kill or destroy in the bible, he healed, delivered, saved, met needs, etc. But when he comes again, he will come as Judge to those who have rejected him, have lived in evil, sin, depravity, selfishness. All people are religious by nature, whether we are religious about our car(s), wife, kids, job, whatever we live for is our god, our religion. Jesus Christ is associated with religion with most I talk to but he never said he came to give religion but life, the highest and the best life possible. Not a lot that I share with bring that into the picture. Anybody with eyes to see or ears to hear can easily know that there is something super bad with this world and it is not because the Republicans or the Democrats are in power at any given moment. It is getting worse as time goes on just as the word of God said that it would in these last days. It is because of sin, you can call it aberrant behavior, whatever but we know deep down that there is something wrong with us, with society, with this world. We like to think or pretend that only those who talk church stuff or go there on Sundays or Wednesdays usually are the religious folks but why do we think that? I talk to so-called atheists since in reality there are none. They usually admit it verbally by the time we are through talking. We all have a God shaped vacuum and if we don’t let him fill it then we will seek something or someone to fill that emptiness in us. It will never be properly filled until he does it. Atheism means “no God”. I ask all that I debate how could they tell me that there is no God unless they have been everywhere in this universe and looked behind every star and there are trillions of them to see if God was behind one of them. You cannot intellectually tell me that there is no God unless you are all knowing and then you would be God, that is an attribute of his. I can intellectually tell you that there is a God since I know him and communicate with him and many, many other believers do. He is a prayer away from each and everyone of us. If we call out to him in faith and repentance, he will answer. But it must be real, he knows and you know if the words that you speak or genuine of not. In closing, one day soon he is coming back to establish a physical kingdom on planet earth.

    Nicholas,
    Weapons will never ‘protect’ us from those who hate us. If it is their ‘intent’ to hate and destroy us they will. True protection is to be righteous, loving, sharing and kind in all our actions.
    World peace, of course, begins with each of us as individuals….forgiving ourselves than others…..loving ourselves than others. This was the message of Christ – the Kingdom is within…it develops from the inner world to the outer world. He also said, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” At his period in history the Roman empire ruled solidly with no individual rights. Christ could not bring his inner hope of individual power and sovereignty to fruit during those dark times. Today with our U.S. Constitution put in place so ingeniously by the founding fathers and mothers as a ‘future’ government we do have the framework and opportunity to ‘create from within’ a magnificent ‘world kingdom’ so hoped for by Christ and our Founding Fathers and Mothers. FUTURE is always malleable. Let us be inspired by their examples and their sacrifices to bring PEACE ON EARTH and GOODWILL AMONG ALL TRIBES.
    A Little Child Will Lead Us

    I would much rather have an effective health care system than to have to hope that vitamins can “miraculously” cure cancer.’

    Ryan, I am glad that there are many, many to have studied the issue and they plainly see that cancer is a vitamin deficiency problem. Did you even check out the pages that I asked you to read? My mother just died of cancer and she did the chemo junk and that’s what it is junk. The cancer industry is a big money making scheme and it won’t be cured in America. There is cancer that is being cured in America, the kind that basically goes away on its own. Chemo is very deadly, the doctors are basically killing you faster with chemo. My sister has cancer now and she is going the vitamin way and the doctors who told her she would be dead in a matter of weeks are very surprised that she is still alive and kicking. She is in stage 4 when she decided to go the vitamin way, they can’t believe that she doesn’t have yellow skin and the like now. Even though there are many Americans going to Mexico, Russia and other places and getting cured of cancer with “Vitamin B17″ and other vitamins. So many are getting cancer in America because of what we eat, most of our food is junk, filled with chemicals, canola oil, soy and the like. I can see very easily that you have not studied the issue, you run with what you hear in this area, cancer. Have you ever heard of Scurvy, it killed hundreds of thousands before they finally admitted that it was a vitamin deficiency disease. When the sailors started taking that “miraculous” vitamnn C then Scurvy disappeared. The same scenario woutld be with cancer when they see that it is a vitamin deficency disease. Ryan, please do a little study before you cut my words off. Thanks!

      Well discused points.

      Until others, like yourself, realize that all Pharmaceutical Companies are interested in is profit…And as long as they keep us in the trows of symptom medicine and band-aid treatments, we will never hear the FDA abmit what really works (as in a cure). Like many aspects of our bueracratic government the corporate medical feild is guilty of extortion.

      So many of our diseases and ailments stem from, ignorance, poor diet, lack of exercise and, physical and mental stress. That isn’t to say that peoples genetics don’t play a role, however many people stay health by eating proper diets, getting some form of exercise and establishing a regular time for themselves to unwind, relax, and rest.

      I also like how you mention the poor quality of our foods, I do agree….Chemicals, Hormones, pestacides, etc. contaminate our food, soil and water table. Which is why I have started to be more self suficiant where and when possable,i.e., organic farming, reducing houshold chemicals, planting vegitation native to the area, recycleing and reusing…No I don’t drive a Prius, but I do ride my bike for short trips to the store and for leasure fun. I don’t consider myself smug and to be better than anyone else…I am just trying to what is best for me and if it inspires others to particapate than great.

      Didn’t mean to veer from the topic of cancer. Guess my point is about lifestyle, knowledge and personal choices.

        Machine, I couldn’t agree more. I commend your lifestyle choices and have shared them for the last 55 years. My 9 brothers and sisters and I were raised in a holistic healthy home. My experience is similar to theirs, our children and our grandchildren: I’ve never had a flu shot and I don’t get the flu (nor colds, strep, soar throats, etc.). I don’t even get headaches. I’ve never taken antibiotics nor do I need to. I’ve never had a tetanus shot nor suffered from this bacterial disease (despite countless cuts and scraps on the farm). We don’t suffer from high blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, cancer or any cardio-vascular anomalies. I did take my wife to the hospital for the delivery of our three kids and paid cash for each (why should someone else pay for OUR decision to have children?). Our primary “medical” expense is dental. I do not have medical insurance, nor will I ever. I do not believe in many of the medical industry’s treatments, nor do I believe that I should pay for the poor health choices of others. I believe this is my right. Shame of the Dems for attempting to violate our Constitutional Rights.

    EASTER/PASSOVER MESSAGE
    from Mary Hath Spokane
    (MAW) Mother Against War

    (Original letter sent to President Obama and several members of Congress)

    This Easter Sunday as Christian Americans celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ I would like everyone to remember His words: “Put your sword back into its place; for all who take up the sword will perish by the sword.” [Matt. 26:52] Yet, since the Crusades so called Christians have killed in Jesus’ Name. I know how he suffers from our misunderstanding of his exemplary life. And I ask my Jewish Americans to remember words to Noah and Moses, “Thou shall not kill”…

    Mary Hath Spokane talks about “Easter” which is a pagan holiday that the Roman Catholic Church gave the “Christians” , so to speak. Easter has nothing to do with the Lord Jesus Christ. Easter is a celebration of the “goddess” Isthar pronounced Easter, which was the so-called goddess of fertility. That is the main reason why so many “Christian” churches have Easter egg hunts and bunny rabbits. They are celebrating the ‘goddess of fertility”. Chickens and rabbits are very fertile creatures. The God of the bible does want us to protect innocent life like babies in the womb or other forms of innocent life. Check my page on Easter,
    http://www.ekkcom.net/easter.htm

    The Roman Catholic Church which gave the “Christians” the holiday Easter KILLED millions of believers and non believers in the Dark Ages. And they are still killing Christians overseas when they can get by with it.

      Amen.

      I do believe in God, though I am not a Christian …
      From what I know, God doesn’t want for us to kill in his name. It is not for us to decide between “us and them” (us being Christians, them being everyone else). We are all Gods children, none of us have the right to snuff out the life of another. To do so for any reason is a loss of humainty. And it is complete hypocracy to celebrate “fertility” while we bomb, rape, extort, etc., each other. And it is complete blasphimy to do it in the name of God. Yes we will be judged.

      If in fact we (man) do want peace and humanity for all man kind, than we must not pilage, and murder. We cannot value “things” above God. Nothing is above God. And when we kill any of his children (meaning man) we are putting ourselves above God. Why? because God created us and breathed life into us; life is not for us to destroy.

      Ekkman I agree with you when you stated in another of your bloggs, how it does not matter who is in office at any given time: Republican, Democrate… There is something wrong in the world, (paraphrased).
      I’ll go further…
      Human nature is not perfect and neither is the world; be it by politics, earthquakes, war, tsunami, saddness, frustration etc., man suffers, its the First Noble Truth. Yes there are positive things in life, which we preceve as the opposite of suffering,i.e. ease, comfort, happiness…However life in its totality is imperfect…incomplete, because the world we live in is subject to impermanence.
      Many feel Ron Paul will make everything better…Just as many support Obama and believe he is right. And many of these supporters (be they for Ron Paul, Obama, or Jessie Ventura for that matter) are Christians. [Thats not ment as a flaw.] My point is that we (man) suffer because we attach ourselves to transient things; sometimes placing to much stock…allowing our egos to lead us…often reacting impulsively ( a big cause for suffering), feeling entitled, and basing human status on economis. And yes…not having a personal spiritual faith also causes suffering. Consider those who are wealthy in wordly possession yet so offten are not happy spiritually. Then look at those who are financhally poor but have a strong spiritual faith…they are more free and spiritually happy than those without a spiritual faith yet who are rich in worldly possessions . Sure everybody wants to have a better economic status, improve their surroundings, afford nice things, eat a fancy stake dinner, drink an expensive bottle of wine. But without realizing that there is a great difference between “need and want”, that without spiritual faith, one will never satisfy their thirst. That to be too far left or too far right only brings with it its own set of challenges, social and personal sufferings.

    What would be your position be if Moslems invaded 1/3 of Eastern United States and threatened to take over the rest of it within the next 50 years? As you wrote in the case of the Crusades, you would quote Matt 26:52? 1/3 of the Byzantine Roman Empire was invaded and occupied by the Moslems; this is why the Crusades were launched. Your position is to allow the Moslem to continue their invasion? In fact, the USA is officially an occupied country – legally stamped by the ObamaHealthCare legislation. The passage of ObamaHealthCare is the dissolution or cessation of the constitutional United States of America. What most Americans haven’t noticed is that the ObamaHealthCare implementation is a strategic qualitative drop that cannot be repealed or repaired through policy or ‘protests’. Under such conditions, every American citizen and its leaders are no longer constitutionally American, and should be considered on the same level as the ‘illegal aliens’ within an International setting. The simple protests are nothing more than rebellion against the new State power and authority.
    Quoting “Thou shalt not kill’ – is another statement without context, which if applied as it is today in the USA by the Judeo-Christians and their allies – it would have destroyed the people that Moses led.
    The wars that the unconstitutional USA is leading around the world is part of a continuing pattern – during the past 60 years there’s been a continuous war against the third world and Latin America, and now, focus is placed on the Middle East. This is to help barricade Russia and manipulate Asia including China.
    Mary – please don’t oversimplify – the results are suicidal.

    Shame on our federal government which is responsible for the deaths of over one million 700 thousand Iraq and Afghanistan civilians!

    The United States Congress and our new President continue to increase military fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria for elitist profits. These elected officials are supposed to be OUR representatives; but, they instead follow orders from the elitist bankers and the military/industrial complex.

    I wish my federal government restored to the people….the true people of America who believe as Jesus and Moses believed… in the sanctity of the individual human being, especially in their “Right to Life”.
    Every Congress person and Senator, who called for the invasions of sovereign countries and the resultant murders and the increase of military budgets, should be immediately impeached! These people DO NOT REPRESENT the true believers in Jesus Christ and Moses. They do not represent the true moralists of this country.

    Since there are some who seem to think I am wrong but I am not sure in what areas they are disagreeing with me unless they choose to tell me at some point and time. Anyway. what is your opinions on these statements below?

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,…” (Taken from the Declaration of Independence- July 4, 1776)

      So does that mean God is a hypocrite? Yes the Declaration of Independence did grant us seperation from the King…But unless you were white and a man you were not considered as equal. Even those who penned our Constitution and Bill of Rights were slave owners and in the slave trade. As well wrote laws to keep blacks and Indians down trodden in order to keep control…Is that what the Bible is? a resource to control (Govern) man kind, especial those who are not white, male, and Quaker????

      But when the founding fathers wrote that in the DOI black people were slaves and women did not have the right to vote. The Constitution had to be amended to end slavery and then again to give women the right to vote, which makes it a living document. When the founding fathers said all men are created equal, they were talking about all white, land owning males. Yes, they believed in religions in those days too, but science has solved the mysteries of the Earth and the universe and disease, while religions have done not one thing. People have always killed one another over religion, like the terrorists are doing now.

      People made up gods when humans first began to exist to deal with death and illness and floods, all the things they didn’t understand and had no control over, and the stories were passed down. Each culture made up their versions of the gods, that’s why there are so many different religions. The problem is almost 90 percent of people in this country don’t go to college so they don’t get a chance to learn the sciences and humanities and find out how things are really created and how religion was created. We teach our children our old religions, we don’t educate them, so they don’t have the facts they need to figure out what is real and what isn’t. Jesus didn’t speak English and he wasn’t white. You know that, right?

    Ryan, Cancer is a vitamin deficiency disease. It is being cured in many parts of the world by taking the right vitamins. The main seed worth eating to keep cancer away is apricot seeds, they are packed with vitamin b17 which kills cancer cells. There is a book that you can get online called “World Without Cancer
    by G. Edward Griffin which would definitely be worth your time in reading. It is too much of a money making scheme to NOT cure cancer in America. I put in one page from the book on my web site at http://www.ekkcom.net/cancer03.htm That should get you hungry enough to want to read the whole book. Many people have been cured by the vitamin process dealing with cancer. Check out a few testimonies on this page, http://www.realityzone.com/worwitcan.html

    I agree with Ron Paul when he says, “Obamacare will be repealed by a national bankruptcy.”, but one thing left out of the discussion is, if we are bankrupt how will we recover a decent health care system, and how many of us will die in the recovery process? Will we all be eating moldy bread for infections? Herbal remedies for cancer? Or, is there any hope for a rapid recovery of an affordable health care system?

    I think it will be very difficult at best. IMO, It is imperative that we repeal Obamacare at the soonest possible opurtunity to salvage any hope. We need a 2/3 majority in congress and a president like Ron Paul willing to sign the repeal. That means we need to clean house in the congress in 2010, and elect Ron Paul in 2012. If we don’t succeed it’s a very bleek future indeed.

    I forgot to mention that the constitution was “founded” on the bible, the word of God. All of our rights, freedoms come from the hand of God. The federal buildings all over Washington have scriptures on them. NOW they are trying to get rid of a lot of them by scratching them off, covering them up, hiding them, etc.
    Emblazoned over the Speaker of the House in the US Capitol are the words “In God We Trust.”
    The Supreme Court building built in the 1930′s has carvings of Moses and the Ten Commandments.
    God is mentioned in stone all over Washington D.C., on its monuments and buildings…
    Oaths in courtrooms have invoked God from the beginning.
    The founding fathers often quoted the Bible in their writings.
    Every president that has given an inaugural address has mentioned God in that speech.
    Prayers have been said at the swearing in of each president.
    Each president was sworn in on the Bible, saying the words, “So help me God.”
    Our national anthem mentions God.
    The liberty bell has a Bible verse engraved on it.
    The original constitution of all 50 states mentions God.
    Chaplains have been in the public payroll from the very beginning.
    Our nations birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence, mentions God four times.
    The Bible was used as a textbook in the schools.”

    Machine, I still never got an answer to my questions. What comments in the past are you disagreeing with me on? I would like to know because NOW you on Ghandi. For Ghandi or anyone else to respect ALL religions he would have to be a non-thinking person. Using your mind would easily show you that religions contradict each other. NO ONE can be for all religions and still believe in truth. We are going from one subject to another and I still WANT TO KNOW what is the problems you are having with me so we can intelligently talk about them.
    Based on your last comments, most people think that Jesus was a wise man and the like but that doesn’t save anyone. But really he wasn’t a wise man unless you believe what he said, he claimed to be God in human flesh, the ONLY way to God, he claimed to be life, love. He claimed he was going to die for mankind and all who receive him into their lives will become new creatures, etc. If none of these comments are true, then he IS NOT A WISE MAN but a LIAR and DECEIVER. There is no way around it. He didn’t seek to leave a back door so all the “unbelievers” can sneak in, so to speak. Jesus Christ is God in human flesh and he came to set men free from sin, he died to free us not to make us intellectually smarter, cuter or whatever. He came to free us from sin so we would NOT go to hell.
    I NEVER SAID that I “dismissed” your comments. I am not a Ghandi follower as I was showing you, I am a Christ follower and I can only be one of those as I walk in his Spirit, submitting to him and resisting the devil and then I walk in victory.
    I also agee that “many of us” could “use our beliefs as weapons…” Could you show me in my comments where I have done that?
    You went on to say that “there is confusion, debate and argument with the christian practice itself…” You just told me that Ghandi respeccts ALL religions but NOW you are telling me that you DO NOT RESPECT ALL RELIGIONS since they are fighting within themselves. You don’t seem to be obeying or following the one whom you believe in. FIRST you named one Christian religion within the three religions that you named, that being the Baptist, they do believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and salvation by faith in his blood. The other two that you named are not Christian, they have a “Jesus” like Ghandi did but having a “Jesus” and have the biblical one is two totally different things.
    Oh well, all I am trying to figure out at the moment is what are you disagreeing with on my past posts? That should be an easy question to answer. Thanks!

      I did not claim to be a “follower” of Gandhi. At least not in any deified manor. I think of Jesus and Gandhi in the same way…Both were men who walked the earth as teachers and tried to spread peace love and compassion amongst the restless. They both spoke out against oppresion and caste. Both could be, and were, at times angry, but never used violence. Both men were persecuted and murdered for their plights, and both left a legacy in their passing. Gahndi often spread the word of Jesus, infact he read and studied the bible. I don’t think God would condem Gahndi to eternal damnation for not claiming Christ as his loard and saviour. If he would than I could never believe in and worship such a God. I think more that Jesus would praise him as a man who actually understood fellowship and brotherhood, that violence towards your enemy, is violence towards your brother and proves nothing good, and in his time tried to teach that to others without restrictions to which religion is the right one… Gahndi was a Hindu but never dismissed or underminded any other religion, because he understood ALL of them share a very common good thread. That having a faith is better than not, as long as you don’t capitalize on it by the misfortune of others. And yet ALL religions have been misinterpreted, abused, and used to justify man’s atrocities in the name of God…Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus Islamics, etc., all of them. Which is why Jesus and Gahndi were murdered.

    Machine wrote me back and I cannot find it on this blog site even though the e-mail told me to come here. Anyway, he was answering my comments that I made before this one. It came in an e-mail and I read it and read it and once again I do not know where he is coming from. Some one please tell me what he is talking about so I can see where he is coming from. I wasn’ t talking about killing, rape and the like yet the e-mail that he sent me below my comment talks about all those things like I am for them.

    Machine, I guess that I am a little dense but I missed your point. Maybe you can share it with me in different words so I can follow you better since I am not sure what you are saying. The constitution, bill of rights, etc were all based on the bible. We were founded on Christianity. We all need Jesus Christ, he is not a white man, so to speak. He came as a Jew and he died to set all mankind free. “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. ” Jesus Christ died for all not just a select few. God is a Spirit and that isn’t white, black, red, yellow, whatever. In reality, there is only one race- “the human race”. I hope you get over your prejudice mindset. I was raised prejudice too but the Lord delivered me from that junk long time ago. When Ronald Reagan was President, he made it ultra plain that all of our laws were based on the Ten Commandments but now that we are falling apart as a nation, they are only suggestions and bad ones to the politically correct. We have turned our backs on the God who made this country the greatest nation in the world and we are going downhill fast, super fast. The Lord Jesus Christ is our only hope.

    Here is what he sent me vis e-mail in answer to my blog.

    “Author: Machine
    “Comment:
    “Absolutly! Which is why I shared my perspective;based on history books, many books, as well as some extended world travel resulting in residing in other countries and the many friendships that came from it.
    When WHEN will we learn that war begot war begot…War is an utter loss of humanity. Are you willing to kill, (or as you stated…RAPE and MURDER)? War is the hostle and violent take over by one group over another, and its means to an end is through acts of evil…than being the end result is evil it will always lead to more evil; this is what history has taught us. The fact that I am here (born) does not mean staying the course of a history that may or may not have brought me here; just as a child born from rape dosen’t mean he must become a rapist. My survival dosen’t have to be by my shedding the blood of another or my own. My excistence dosen’t mean domination over anyother race or culture. White man isn’t loosing becuse of me or those who protest a continuence of destruction through murder and rape…Everyone loses when we take rather than give. No I don’t feel directly responsable for the atrocities of our past, and yes I am very aware of the few today who are extreme fundamentalist, they exist in EVERY culture and every race and EVERY religion, however killing off a race or proving dominance over another culture doesn’t improve the world…It weakens it, causing greater problems, which economics is the least…War begot war…As Gandhi once stated, “…an eye for an eye and soon the whole world is blind.”

    Machine doesn’t seem to care what Jesus Christ (God in human flesh) said but he is into Gandhi??? Oh well! Anyway, if anyone can give me insight into his message to me, it would be super appreciated. I don’t know where he is coming from, it is like he thinks I am for war, killing and the white man taking over the world and none of those statements are true. I agree with most everythng that Ron Paul says and he is for getting our people out of the unconstitutional wars and the like. I like the solution that Jesus gave a lot better than Ghandi’s answer. The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
    “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
    “And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
    “Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    “Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
    “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

    I have been pounded on by people at the bars since I witnessed there for years and at false religious systems they would cuss me out, seek to run over me with their cars, try to lay me out, etc. but I keep sharing the love of God with them not wanting to hurt them back. I just want to see them come into the life of God. He is totally incredible in every way.

    As far as in intelligence and incredible statements, Jesus Christ blows Ghandi away each and every time. Jesus Christ is our answer and hope not Ghandi.

      Sorry, the reply you received was ment for a comment by Gander

      However, I too know scripture…that I choose to quote Gahndi isn’t to be of anything less. That you feel Christ “blows” Gahndi away and is (your) answer…Good for you. I myself think of Gahndi not as “a saviour” just a man who had a perspective…Respected all religions and chose his based on his culture and what he felt right in his heart. I do not see any harm in trying to exercise some of the things he tried to teach by example i.e nonviolence, civil disobedience. Gahndi often spoke eloquently about christ and his teachings…So why are you so quick to dismiss my comments as if they are something less. Granted I know you were confused as to what I was commenting on in the first place, but still I wonder as to how sincer you are.

      Saddly enough many of us use our “beliefs” as weapons when every religion out there begain as a means of love and brotherhood. Oddly enough there is confusion, debate and argument within the christian practice itself…Baptist beleave this, Jehovas beleave that, and Catholics have there philosophy, etc.

    Just about every person running for president of the United States of America claimed to be Christian, every one that I can remember whether he was or not. America was founded on Christianity. Most of our state constitutions talk about being founded on God/Jesus Christ. Read a few of them. Separation of church and state has nothing to do with God. A church is not to control a nation like the Roman Catholic Church did for over a thousand years and killed anyone who would not submit to their authority. Our rights are given to us by our CREATOR.
    “Separation of church and state” is a common metaphor that is well recognized. Equally well recognized is the metaphorical meaning of the church staying out of the state’s business and the state staying out of the church’s business. Because of the very common usage of the “separation of church and state phrase,” most people incorrectly think the phrase is in the constitution. The phrase “wall of separation between the church and the state” was originally coined by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptists on January 1, 1802. His purpose in this letter was to assuage the fears of the Danbury, Connecticut Baptists, and so he told them that this wall had been erected to protect them. The metaphor was used exclusively to keep the state out of the church’s business, not to keep the church out of the state’s business. ”

    The “church” being “God’s people” will run this country better than any others if they are open and sensitive to the Spirit of God, they will operate in wisdom and love as Jesus Christ did.
    PATRICK HENRY: [American Revolutionary leader, and member of the Continental Congress] -
    “IT CANNOT BE EMPHASIZED TOO STRONGLY OR TOO OFTEN THAT THIS GREAT NATION WAS FOUNDED, NOT BY RELIGIONISTS, BUT BY CHRISTIANS, NOT ON RELIGIONS, BUT ON THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. FOR THIS VERY REASON PEOPLES OF OTHER FAITHS HAVE BEEN AFFORDED ASYLUM, PROSPERITY, AND FREEDOM OF WORSHIP HERE.”

    Because we were founded on the Christian God, we allow others into this country. Try to openly proclaim Jesus Christ as the only answer to man’s problems in most parts of the world that are not Christian and see what happens. Go to Iraq or Iran, try China or Russia, N. Korea and many other
    nations. We have the freedom of religion because of Christianity not in spite of it. I can go deeper into your “separation of church and state” later on if this doesn’t satisfy your arguments.

        Your ignorance astounds me. Article VI says no such thing.

        The First Amendment guarantees that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;. . .” It says noting about separating Church and State – that is a more recent and incorrect construct.

        Article VII says:”. . .done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD. . .” {emphasis added}. That is a clear acknowledgment of God.

        From George Washington to the delegates of the Constitutional Convention:

        If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the HAND OF GOD.” {emphasis added}.

        The Convention prayed to God every day before the start of business and there are literally dozens of references in their papers. Here’s another from George:

        “I am sure there never was a people, who had more reason to acknowledge a divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States; and I should be pained to believe, that they have forgotten that agency, which was so often manifested during our revolution, or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God, who is alone able to protect them.”

        God was in integral part of life for the vast majority of Americans and the Bible was the main, if not the only, textbook for much of our early history. We are a nation founded on Christian principles. Nothing can change that fact.

            Our founding fathers knew all about religious persecution. Their goal was to ensure that the Federal government could not be controlled by any one religion to the exclusion of others. It was not designed to exclude religion from government – it was designed to ensure INCLUSION – a very Christian value.

            I agree, maybe YOU need to respond to Ekkman (and not me), who originally posited:

            “We have turned our backs on the God who made this country the greatest nation in the world and we are going downhill fast, super fast. The Lord Jesus Christ is our only hope.”

            I read it again, and I see a post that is warning people that they need to get right with God. That’s it.

            Since many religions believe in God, then there would not be a specific religion put forward even if someone attempted a Church State.

            Where was that so-called ‘Seperation of church and state’ thing, again? Still looking for that doc.

            Wow, are you just throwing a tantrum?

            You know, what? You are TOTALLY right! CLEARLY Ekkman does NOT believe this country (which was founded on Christ Jesus) has turned it’s back on God (which has caused its downfall) and would benefit from this entire country turning to Jesus Christ. My bad. Clearly this is exactly what the Founding Fathers had envisioned and is COMPLETELY in the spirit of the Constitution.

            “This country was founded on Christ Jesus and he is our only hope now as he was then. It is not greener on the other side, they are making a one world order and there will be no place to run. We must stand fast in the Lord of glory to overcome.”

    There is really only one hope for America and that hope is based on II Chron. 7:14 which says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” This country was founded on Christ Jesus and he is our only hope now as he was then. It is not greener on the other side, they are making a one world order and there will be no place to run. We must stand fast in the Lord of glory to overcome.

        The Constitution is certainly a foundational document but the principles and values on which it was written were Christian. At the time of its writing, we were very much a Christian nation. That we have fallen away from our Christian principles and values is clearly shown in the sad state of our Nation and, in my opinion, will be our ultimate downfall.

          The Constitution grants us freedom of religion; a right I fully support.
          I do not, however, support an agenda to rewrite history.

          The number of Christians at the time of it’s inception is not pertinent. There were many people of varying beliefs involved in it’s writing, and certainly Christians were among them. But the document was a secular (by man) attempt to establish a nation with an equal playing field for all people, of all values, for all time. Just read the preamble for confirmation…

          “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

          The Constitution defines the rights of “We The People”, and it’s the framework from which our laws are made.
          The laws of this country are not derived by the values of Christianity, let alone the central figurehead of Christianity, as Ekkman suggested.

          I support the right to practice religion as people see fit. But I will speak out when I see something that is clearly a contradiction from the known historical facts. And will not accept any suggestion that Christians, and Christian values, are somehow more relevant to the rights of “We The People”. Christians are no more, or less, rightfully endowed by the Constitution than anyone else.

          Freedom and Liberty is the main principal. Another way of saying that is, “Equality of rights.”.

        Of course it’s the evil white Christians like my family who came from Holland after the 2nd world war after half our relatives where killed by the Germains.
        My relatives died trying to hide the the Jews who where thier neighbours.
        They where white Christians.
        My parents where under 10 when they watched executions in front of their homes…of their neighbours.
        My great uncle was executed in front of my Dad for helping a Dutch Jew.
        He was a white Christian.
        My Gramps came over from Holland with 6 kids ,no job and no money and started a business building homes.
        Employed ALL COLOURS AND ETHNIC GROUPS. He was a white Christian.
        He did not see colours…ever. I know I worked with many ethnic groups in his company and I saw Gramps give folks jobs just so they could eat.
        He was a white Christain.
        Most of my family does not see a person’s colour .
        Somehow though we as white Christisna who built N.A. by the way are according to you… elitiest christian white rich men.
        I can’t think of a single person in my really large white Christian family who thinks about a persons skin colour.
        We got past that a long time ago.
        Maybe you should try to do the same.

        Folks like you and I don’t know what your back ground is…but you seem to want to remind my family and folks like us that we are racists when in fact as I said we don’t think much about it.
        That’s until I see some thing like this and I have to say…oh ya that’s right we must be racists since some entitiy wants to keep this racists crap ongoing.
        Grow up and get over yourself.

Groups as in White, Elite, Rich, and Christian. I mean I do know we have a black president…Progress right!? But all he has done is resuffled the same marked deck that we have been delt over and over.

          Look I do appologize for offending you. And of coarse I know that there are just as many good and humain white christians – rich or poor – that are not the cause of fraud, I am one of them..except for the christian part. However, I was making a point to the blogg by EKKMAN.

            2nd …your president is half black in case anyone cares.
            He had a white Mother.
            3rd you can’t offend me..I have a thick skin.
            I don’t know you and don’t care really what you say about me.
            I’m a truth teller and tell it like it is.

            To me one of the biggest prblems we have is simply EGO.
            On all sides.
            Not enough of us are evolving as the world should.

            Who do we hold repsonsible ?
            To me it’s the elite as you said but not just white elites.

            I see scarcity mind set continually preached which is not true.
            By the media of course,the banks and the governments.
            Lastly and most powerful is the government run school systems indoctrinating our kids with complete scarcity mind set.

            Why don’t they teach what Buckminster Fuller spoke of often which was that we have enough resourcse on our planet that everyone can be a billionaire.
            Yes with a “b”.

            So we need to change our thinking 180 dgrees.

            How do we help the folks in Africa and such?

        read a history book you brain washed robot, or should i say Machine. Murder and rape is how every country in the history of earth was founded. no new country gets founded on peace and love. if all that theft and murder hadn’t occurred you wouldn’t have been born. the only reason that white people are losing everything is because they have turned into self-hating uneducated losers like yourself.

          Why would you deny Machine his right to self-loathing?

          Machine reminds me of the Stars and Bars argument.

          Absolutly! Which is why I shared my perspective;based on history books, many books, as well as some extended world travel resulting in residing in other countries and the many friendships that came from it.
          When WHEN will we learn that war begot war begot…War is an utter loss of humanity. Are you willing to kill, (or as you stated…RAPE and MURDER)? War is the hostle and violent take over by one group over another, and its means to an end is through acts of evil…than being the end result is evil it will always lead to more evil; this is what history has taught us. The fact that I am here (born) does not mean staying the course of a history that may or may not have brought me here; just as a child born from rape dosen’t mean he must become a rapist. My survival dosen’t have to be by my shedding the blood of another or my own. My excistence dosen’t mean domination over anyother race or culture. White man isn’t loosing becuse of me or those who protest a continuence of destruction through murder and rape…Everyone loses when we take rather than give. No I don’t feel directly responsable for the atrocities of our past, and yes I am very aware of the few today who are extreme fundamentalist, they exist in EVERY culture and every race and EVERY religion, however killing off a race or proving dominance over another culture doesn’t improve the world…It weakens it, causing greater problems, which economics is the least…War begot war…As Gandhi once stated, “…an eye for an eye and soon the whole world is blind.”

    “Right to take care of yourself…”
    I do not associate myself with the republican or democrat party…I simple choose to (hmm) think outside both those boxes. History shows that both parties – over the past 100 plus years – does not have “the peoples intest”. The Obama Party is no different. If national health care is “for the people” than it should be voted on by the people…Not elected greedy liars who are pressured by their party and baught out by corporate lobbiest.
    I – like many of my family and friends – work hard…which enables me to take care of my needs. However, I cannot afford to pay for medical insurance; and if the company I work for ( a local mom and pop buisness) is FORCED to provide health insurance they WILL go belly up. Todays health insurance policies are for BIG corporations, the rich and elite…It will be no different with a socialized system; it will continue to rob Peter to pay Paul.
    So what I am saying is that YES we need to do something to change the way health insurance works/costs in America. However we MUST Not allow government to CHEAT us from our individual rights as Americans…We have already suffered enough at the hands of government swine.

      I didn’t agree with all your comments, but I very much agree with this one. The “Elitist Christian” does not exist in reality. There is no such thing. They are only Christain by profession of the word and do so for socio-political gain. Real Christians surrender selfishness and pride.

      Nevertheless, I feel the left and the right are merely two sides of the same box. If one argues, or is a proponent, of either side: one is still in the box. Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews on the Left…Bill O’Rielly and Glenn Beck on the Right: Could they actually be doing a dis-service to the American Patriot by providing a venue in which the left/right agruement may be “vented”?

      I proclaim that the box should be kicked to the curb. We have a relatively simple Constitution and 50 unique states. These States are 50 unique nations. Our system was designed so that we could live after our own fashion in our own States.

      Ron Paul expresses this point to the point of utter exaspiration. The Federal Government does not hold power of the States outside the specific and enumerated powers of the US Constitution. It is time for them to shut-up, go home, and allow us the freedom that was “endowed upon us by our creator.”

      Our rights are unalienable, and endowned in such a manner; they were given us by GOD himself. They were not graciously afforded us by any man. Therefore, they can be taken by no man. If the elitist do not agree, then I have a rifle that says it is so.

      Forgive me, I do not want violence…but I have decided that I will no longer run from them…

        Thumbs up.

        Thank you for commenting and sharing your perspective.

        The dis-service I see comming from those you mention is that they tend to be nothing more than BLAH BLAH BLAH,constantly spouting off…simmilar to the Y2K rhetoric…Of course the Right agrees with the Right and the Left agrees with the Left; to a degree. Personally I can’t stand any of the (so called political) network commentators…none of them ever seem to say anything worth listening to…except for Jon Stewart and that other commedian! Ho ho!!
        Yes it very much seems like it is going to be a blood bath. And I am not one for violence and murder either. I hear the cry over the hills…”The Patriots are coming,The Patriots are coming “! We American need to be prepaired to either take a life or give ones life…

    We can discuss this and every other issue until we are blue in the face. Until we figure a way to get Ron Paul into the Whithouse, everything is moot. My opinion is there is not a chance that he can make it as a Republican. Any suggestions?

      The Liberty & Fiscal Responsibility (or, Tea Party) movement is growing daily. If this country-wide movement keeps exposing the hypocrisy of the liberal-neoconservative candidates he’ll be facing in 2012, he can get the Republican nomination. We won CPAC!
      My suggestion, don’t give up hope now, 2+ years before the fact. Likely, the economy will be far worse at that time. And Ron Paul will only gain more support with every passing day. Especially since he is the only consistently Fiscal Conservative in the GOP.

      did you ever see that one interview where they asked Ron Paul why he’s Republican if he doesn’t follow most of the party line.

      He quipped : “if I wasn’t Republican I wouldn’t be in the Senate”.

      That hits the nail on the head. If you’re not republican or democrat you can’t get a seat in congress (well maybe 5 seats out of 400 if you lucky, no real voice).

      That being said, I’m not a blind adherent to Ron Paul. I call myself a libertarian in the sense of believing in the constitution, limited government and true freedom. We should be careful ourselves of becoming non-thinking sheep followers of any new party.

      E.g. my roommate voted Democrat and was a major democrat supporter in the last election. Yet she couldn’t tell me WHY she was, couldn’t explain any of their policies etc.

        Libertarians don’t believe in the Constitution or liberty, but they sure do believe in “true freedom”.

        Everyone loves freedom. Terrorists want freedom to kill you. The rich want the freedom to hire slaves. China wants the freedom to invade Taiwan. North Korea wants the freedom to invade South Korea. Indeed Libertarians are for “true freedom”, but they are not for Liberty.

          Hmmm. I agree that goverNment (the big and powerful ones) want to strategically position themselves (millitarilly and economically) for their own personal gain. The U.S. is no different; remember those Natives that were labled SAVAGES…Slaughtered, swindled, and pushed out of the land they had lived on for centuries. Lets not forget the entire South West which was Mexico until we decided to just take it. As well, our history with the black man…Something white folks want to just forget about as if it never happened.
          What goes around comes around! Which is why we spend trillions of dollars on the millitary…The U.S. either gets in bed with other powers (i.e. Saudi Arabia), hedges bets (Isreal) – like a GODFATHER (as in mafia) – or we just invade/ become military active ( China ’45-46/ ’50-’53, Korea ’50-’53,Vietnam61-73, Laos ’64-’73, Nicaragua’80, Panama ’89, Afghanistan’98/ present, Iraq91-99/01-present), all catapulted by some demagog propaganda that insightes the jingoes…Non of the formentioned military actions lead to a democratic government being put in place, just the murder of houndreds of thousands young men and women. The latest band wagon rhetoric: If you are not with America…You’re with the terrorist.

    Marionette Hicks– You are mistaken when you say that Clinton would have let us know about Obama’s B.C. You see, these people are all in bed with one another, and they are all on the same team– even though they may bicker and fight in the limelight; behind closed doors you can be sure they are snuggled up tight to each other. It’s like watching pro wrestling. They are all paid the same way, and it’s all a dog and pony show; a distraction designed to keep people occupied while the one they want is placed in the presidency. Now, it’s true: Obama was NOT supposed to win the primary; the plan was for Hillary. But she’s got sooo much doggone CHARISMA, that it was Barry that prevailed. But believe me, all the horses in the race are owned by the EXACT SAME interests. The same steamroller that sent this damn bill down our throats would have done the same thing had Hillary won in the primary. When you own all the horses in the race, you win no matter what.

    Hi, I have Perfect Credit, Valuable Home, Excellent Income, Retired, Much Cash on Hand and protected by the Homestead Exemption (cannot be touch no mortgage). Yes, I am now amassing all the Unsecured Credit Lines I can get (visa etc). I have been laying the ground work for several years to take the Banks Down for as much as I can obtain. I am buying 1/10 th oz gold coins and bags of silver coins. I purchase a small but nice place in North Western Canada to flee too! Enjoying Freedom again will be as it was in the good old days; getting away from Large Cities, Pollution, Taxes, Crime, Corruption and the galloping crud of mass human civilization. My fourth trip is planned and I have buried much of the funds like Jessie James. Fought in Nam and believed in the good old USA. For the last 10 years I wanted and hoped this country would wake up and correct its course of action but to no avail. I see the Mongrels, Free Martins and a One World Government taking over our country before my very eyes for our Government is a Cesspool of Legalized Criminals and Financial Terrorists.
    I have never been so excited about any project in my life, knowing I will be able to screw these Jew Bastards that control our Banking Systems and Financial Centers. I am going to walk away with gold and cash and the government can consider the gift to me as a real Bailout and add it to the National Debt with its Trillions. As I get 5 to 20 Gold Coins a month and watching the Cash piling up makes me feel like D. B. COOPER or WILLIE SUTTON getting ready to pull off a bank job. Americans had better get ready because the Chaos and Anarchy coming down to its citizens will be a patch on there asses of what Hitler did to Europe. Know your Enemy and fear him well because you are in his sites. Come out of the Either and quite worrying about voting and hoping for a better world, Freedom has VAPORIZED.
    Wake and prepare your families before its to late. GET SMART, PLEASE PREPARE YOUR FAMILIES NOW. THANKS, DEC

    The date March 21st 2010 is similar to December 24, 1913 (Federal Research Act) – dates that initiated the dismemberment of the USA. Both dates have/will lead to the emergence of the neo global Dark Age, that is similar to that which culminated in the genocidal condition in the 14th century Western Europe. In both cases – 700 years apart – the same parties played out and resulted in similar events.

    I am aware of the ObamaCare package details, which was passed and signed into law on May 21-23. In spite of this tragedy, too many Americans today are optimistic and hopeful that a possible solution can be found, and that the package can be reversed. These hopeful people design tactical steps (e.g., issue legal action against the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare implementation signature; hope that the November elections will help adjust some power balance in the House and Senate; emphasize distinctions between State and Federal authority, etc.) and in the process hope that this tactical approach will reverse the strategy.

    We should note however that as of today the USA is officially governed under a non-USA constitutional authority – specifically a World Banking schedule. Under such conditions, each and every American citizen is no longer an American citizen, but a categorized and graded world entity. This is also why the November elections may easily be ‘postponed’ or rendered void. Some threatening conditions may be created to justify such action. This, by default, will also place all elected officials in the same ‘suspended’ category. Also, one can anticipate that the 50 States of the United States will soon be re-designed.

    Why am I writing such dire predictions for the once much beloved and Christian United States of America? It is to encourage Americans to start thinking strategically and not tactfully only. Americans should not exclude the worst case scenario as the sanest possibility. We should consider March 21nd 2010 as the date that has marked the end of the existing Constitutional United States. We should work on a double plan – a) some tactical moves; as well as, b) establish networks with those who understand the strategic reality, and start planning logistics towards salvaging what still remains of the USA during the following 12 to 16 months.

    I hold a PhD in Russian Languages and Literatures, with minors in International Relations, Engineering. Today, I work as an Industrial Management Consultant and wrote books that address fundamental scientific methodological issues (see WhichOnesAreScientific.com).

    Also, with time being of the essence, I can direct the reader towards a 2009 Russian film entitled “Admiral.” When the Soviet Union fell, many Russian historians, politicians, military, etc. have critically re-examined why and how Russia fell under Bolshevik power. Now, similar circumstances and causalities are evident in the USA.
