Please, if you can, come join us! Let THEM hear our combined voices!
I’m so excited to hear Rev. Jesse Lee!
What we will be forced to drive quite soon.
But look at all of the ‘great new choices’ we will have from ‘The SMART Car’….

……is even more cool!
…..but I think this is pretty dadburn cool!
President Barack Obama says that while he’s dedicated to expanding homosexual rights, many Americans still cling to what he calls “worn arguments and old attitudes.”
At a White House celebration of Gay Pride Month, Obama said he hopes to persuade all Americans to accept homosexuality. “”There are good and decent people in this country who don’t yet fully embrace their gay brothers and sisters — not yet,” said the president. “That’s why I’ve spoken about these issues — not just in front of you — but in front of unlikely audiences, in front of African-American church members.”
Obama acknowledged that many Americans still disapprove of homosexuality. “There are still fellow citizens, perhaps neighbors or even family members and loved ones, who still hold fast to worn arguments and old attitudes,” he stated.
Well, now, I’m not real sure what Bible the imminent Rev. Jeremiah Wright (/snark) was reading from in his anti American rants that the Poser in Chief was listening to for 20 years, but in MY Bible…..
Leviticus 18:22 (King James Version)
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Unlike the Obamabots, I do NOT put that jackass’ words about the authority of God! NOT gonna happen! I will repeat what many others have said in recent months…. I ALREADY HAVE A MESSIAH….and Obummer ain’t Him!
Contrary to what some may think, I am not homophobic. That’s a choice some have made, and they will have to deal with it in their own way. “But,” I hear a few say, “Didn’t Jesus say to love your neighbor?” Yes, He did. You’ll also find a few other tidbits in the Bible that, evidently, some would like you to forget:
Jeremiah 31:34 ~ And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
For anyone who can’t figure it out, it means, yes, you will be forgiven of your sins, but that doesn’t mean you get to keep committing them.
Lamentations 5:7 ~ Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
Once again, it’s straight forward! The iniquities of the sins are being pushed on future generations.
….. go, and sin no more. (context John 8:1-12)
While coming home from my doctor’s appointment in Corinth yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker that almost made me run off the road.
This is a TOTAL contradiction!
I’m not being judgmental. That’s not my job. What I do understand, that even though we are ALL sinners, including me, it is our job to aid each other towards finding the Truth.
I really can’t add anything to either one. Both these gentlemen have done a pretty good job pointing out the utter ignorance of the Poser in Chief, and his minion, the Scaretary of State.
I had seen this video before, but spaced out posting it….for what reason? I have NO idea, but even though it is a couple of months old, it is still pertinent. Listen. Learn. Act.

While the left is obsessive about color, in general, the right is not. We don’t look at the color of a person’s skin, we see the “content of character”. It just so happens that quite a few of those conservatives embrace happen to be of a different hue than the ‘old, rich, white men’. Oddly enough, we’re not all rich, we’re not all men, and some of us aren’t as old as you’d like to think!
One of the things that has seriously chapped my hide is the fact that so many on the left crawled up Obama’s hind end, for no other reason, than he is black. What kind of intelligent, informed, decision was that, fer the love of pete!
While I agree in spirit with Mr Marcus, I don’t think the right are actually ignoring the black conservatives. I just think that we aren’t aware that the skin tone is all that different. Nope, we don’t see black, white, red, yellow…..we see RED, WHITE AND BLUE! Well, at least I know I do.
At a tea party in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, I invited all veterans to join me on stage as I sang “God Bless the USA” in tribute to them. It was truly a moving experience. Veterans, old and young, and active service men and women came forward. The audience applauded wildly expressing their love for them. Such tributes NEVER happen at left-wing secular progressive events. Their goal is ALWAYS about tearing down America, as opposed to celebrating America, which I do in my original song, “Celebrate America.”
Regarding the “hyphenated American issue.” I begin every rally/tea party with, “I am NOT an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus…AMERICAN!!!” I am stunned by how powerful this proclamation has been with audiences. It really strikes an emotional chord. People come with tears in their eyes to thank me. These patriots crave unity as Americans. They say it is fine to honor one’s heritage, but — first and foremost — we should be Americans embracing our traditions, language, and culture.
New York Democrats are all about the power….in an obvious disrespect for the Pledge, and our nation!
I can hardly wait to hear their excuse. Not that it matters. Their behavior says a whole lot about Democrats as a whole, IMHO.
Thank to Connie via Facebook.
The Mr and I would have gone to this TEA Party, as well as the one on the 2nd, but I had that doctor’s appointment today, so we couldn’t do it. Of course, I wanted to see what coverage I could find from the ‘media’. Isn’t it interesting that the very liberal Boston Herald pretty much parroted the very liberal Tennessean? Hmm….
From Boston Herald:
Anti-Obama protesters hold ‘tea party’ rally in Nashville
Several hundred people have gathered in front of the Tennessee Capitol to protest the policies of Democratic President Barack Obama.
The event marks the third time this year that protesters have held “tea party” rallies in Nashville.
Monday’s lunchtime protest filled about half of Legislative Plaza, a much smaller turnout than the previous rally in April that was part of a national turnout on tax day.
From The Tennessean Political Blog:
Tea Party, Take 3
Okay, tea party wrap-up time. Some guards at the state legislature and I put our heads together and we’re going to spitball the crowd estimate at 250 to 300 people. The crowd filled about half of the plaza.
Star of the show? Bernadette Ash, hands down. People lined up afterward, hoping the Nashville Army veteran would autograph their protest signs. Not bad, considering Ash says that was the first political speech she’s ever given.
From Nashville’s Channel 5 News:
Thousands Protest Obama Policies In Nashville
Four thousand local protestors took over Legislative Plaza Monday to protest a new energy initiative by President Obama. The “tea party” protest also took aim at universal health care.
The event marked the third time this year protestors have held similar rallies in Nashville.
“More than half of Americans feel the way I do,” said protestor Karen Entz. “That should be represented on the national news, and it’s not.”
From Tennessee Tea Party:
A Great Turnout at the Middle Tennessee Liberty Rally!
The Middle Tennessee Liberty Rally had a fantastic turnout today at Legislative Plaza in Nashville, especially considering it was on a day when no other rallies seemed to be taking place. There wasn’t a huge push from national media helping to drive attention to the rally.
Speaker after speaker roused the crowd, peaking somewhere near 2,500 (despite what the Tennessean’s political blog, In Session, thinks). A common complaint among tea party detractors is that the rallies are just a bunch of rich, white people getting that get together to complain and moan, only to go home later and change nothing. Well first, “rich white people” is not what we have ever seen at one of these rallies. And second, not a one of us at the rally expects to see our representatives buckle at the news of some 2,500 people showing up to decry their excessive spending and overreaching government control.
A “couple of hundred”. 4000? Hmmm….
The next one will be on the 2nd, and we WILL be there, along with many other people!
Note: I’ll be looking for bloggers reactions, so if you have a link, please share it so I can post it, K? Thanks!

Love the signs in this picture:
Oh….just seriously…..WOW! Take 10 minutes of your time to watch this video. Absolutely amazing.
David Lemon. What an amazing artist. Check out the website. I’d ask how much, but I KNOW I can’t afford, so…. Just…..wow!
H/T: Maggie’s Notebook, with much thanks for sharing such beauty.
For anyone who might be curious, I went to my after mp3 player insertion follow up appointment this afternoon, and all is well. I’m still ticking, and quite well, according to what the doc said. She’s just thrilled the surgery went so well. Uh huh…..she’s not the one with the huge lump on the left side of her chest. sigh…. And I can’t even pick up any music! What fun is that??

It looks like Duke University has another rape case on its hands. This one may hurt the university nearly as much as the one that rocked its campus back in 2006. Unlike the previous case, this one appears to involve a credible confession of sexual abuse. Like the previous case, crucial facts are already being filtered through the prism of identity politics.
Frank Lombard is the associate director of Duke’s Center for Health Policy. The university administrator was recently arrested by the FBI and charged with offering up his adopted 5-year-old son for sex. I tried to contact Frank Lombard over the weekend to probe his expertise regarding the health benefits of raping small children. So far, he’s declined to comment.
University administrator Lombard is accused of logging on to a chat room online and describing himself as a “perv dad for fun.” The detective who wisely looked into the suspicious screen name says that Lombard admitted to molesting his own adopted son. All this was before allegedly inviting a stranger to travel to North Carolina from another state to statutorily rape his already-molested adopted son.

Is this acceptable behavior from professors at the so called institutions of higher learning? I’m so angry right now, I can’t even think of the right words to express my disgust and revulsion!
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that a group of white firefighters in Connecticut were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision endorsed by high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.
The 5-4 ruling poses a potential complication to Sotomayor’s nomination, with confirmation hearings set to start in July.
In the high-profile, controversial case, white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., argued they were discriminated against when the city tossed out the results of a promotion exam because too few minorities scored high enough on it.
Justice Anthony Kennedy authored the opinion in favor of Frank Ricci and his fellow firefighters who sued the city of New Haven.
“The city’s action in discarding the tests violated (federal law),” the Supreme Court majority wrote Monday, adding that the city’s “race-based rejection of the test results” could not be justified.
Potential complication, eh? I’d say it was a given that this woman should never have even been in the running. But that’s just me. I have a tendency to think logically, whereas the Poser in Chief, evidently, does not.
Do we really need a judge who has had her decisions reversed 60%? Just asking. I don’t know about you, but I’d be a lot happier if judges sitting on the bench in the highest court in the land had at least a working knowledge of the law, and the U.S. Constitution. Is that asking too much?
We have seen for years, many cases of discrimination coming before the courts. Some were legitimate, others were plain BS. Typically, the race discriminated against was black. Unfortunately, there are still some people in this country who believe that because a person’s skin color is different, they aren’t as capable of doing a job. Affirmative action is one of those ‘feel good’ propositions that does nothing more than cause more discrimination. A person’s ability to do the job is not controlled by the skin color, but by the amount of time he/she puts into learning to do said job. These firefighters worked hard, took the tests, passed, and were denied promotion. Why? Because of the color of their skin! Wrong is wrong……period! Sotomayor was wrong then, and she’ll be wrong in the future. Being a a Latina does not automatically give her a greater understanding of the law than my license to legally get behind the wheel of a car automatically makes me an expert in Nascar.
