The Bundy Ranch and the War on Real Americans. – Tea Party Nation .

Posted by Judson Phillips

 

When armed men in uniform show up to take your property, it is hard to call it anything other than war. 

 

When the government invaded Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Clark County, Nevada a few days ago, it expected him to roll over.  It expect him to surrender and be forced out.  They expected the last rancher standing to give up the fight.

 

They were wrong.

 

They learned a lesson when a lot of real Americans showed up to defend Cliven Bundy.

 

What was that lesson?

 

The lesson is there is a reason why our founding fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution and there is a reason why real Americans refuse to compromise on it.

The Real Reason Jay Leno Retired . . . . one-liners?‏ – Tea Party Nation .

Posted by John Wiant

These one liners might be why NBC retired Jay Leno!

NBC was upset by the fact Leno’s comments were ALWAYS right on target.

“I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don’t want to get audited by the  IRS.”

On NSA surveillance: “We wanted a president who listens to allDealing with the NSA
Americans – now we have one.”

On a new IRS commissioner: “He’s called ‘acting commissioner’
because he has to act like the scandal doesn’t involve the White House.”

On closing the Guantanamo prison for terrorists: “If he really wantsto close it,turn it into a government-funded solar power company. The doors will be shut in a month.”

Concerning the Benghazi , Associated Press, and IRS scandals:
“Remember in the old days when President Obama’s…

ALERT: Sources inside BLM, Las Vegas Metro say Feds are Planning a Raid on Bundy Home

PUMABydesign001's Blog

BundyRanchSnipers

As suspected, Saturday’s retreat in the Bundy Ranch Standoff was merely a dog and pony show. If the following is true, taking into account the viciousness of the Obama administration, Harry Reid and klan, let us pray for the Bundys, their ranch and the cattle.

Why?  Because after Saturday, our vengeful federal government, out for blood is doubling down.  By the way, the no fly zone is still in place.  This is tyranny!

Ben Swann

… Not only is the BLM not actually backing off of Cliven Bundy, Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has revealed stunning information: on Ben Swann’s radio program, Mack said that he has received intelligence from multiple, credible sources inside the BLM and the Las Vegas Metro that there is “no question” that the federal government is planning a raid on the Bundy home and the homes of their children…

Harry Reid Calls Bundy Supporters “Domestic Terrorists”, While Son, Rory, Stands to make Millions off Seizure of Bundy Land

PUMABydesign001's Blog


Bundy Ranch Standoff

No mention of the 200 armed snipers who set their sights on the Bundy family. That ODB, Harry Reid and his lies of omission are fooling no one.  The Bundy family, those men and women who came to stand by the Bundy family to ensure their protection from a government gone rogue are heroes not terrorists.

The most corrupt administration in the history of the United States is looking into prosecuting a rancher and his family whose legacy of hard work feeds (fed) millions of Americans?

Are you kidding me?

Harry Reid, Barack Obama, EPA, BLM, environmentalists and fellow Communists who by the way are known to finance, give free reign to and collaborate with terrorists that should be prosecuted.  They are always accusing others of that which they themselves are guilty.

It is Harry Reid, Barack Obama, EPA, BLM, environmentalists and fellow Communists who are raising the price of…

Statue to paint and cookies to bake

Tonight i’m finally going to get around to painting a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary our aide found. The owner was going to throw it out and our aide said no.She offered to take it. Once it’s painted it will look almost new.

Tomorrow is going to be cookie baking day. Aide won’t be here and we’ll have all day long to ourselves.

Tonight-God willing-i’ll be back and type up the notes i have left over.

Till then.Everyone have a wonderful afternoon/evening. It’s beautiful out.I’m heading out to the porch and having a cup of coffee before i lay down for a tad. Need some rest too.

A memorable moment from YEARS ago. Son’s Baptism at our parish.My brother and cousin were his God parents. Cousin passed away some years ago. The priest was moved to another parish years ago.His baptismal name was Paul Christopher. We called him PC for short 🙂 I almost named him Christopher Paul but thought it was too long a first name to spell.If he had been a girl-of course he wasn’t-her name would have been Noel Christina.

What are you doing for Easter Sunday? Feel free to leave a comment.

 

Reflecting

Husband went out of town to his monthly visit to chiropractor. Very quiet here. All the housework is done.Well,most of it. Our aide is taking off 2 Saturdays to come in on Sunday and make sure we get to Easter Mass and Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday.After which i am going to fly home and watch the canonization of Pope John Paul II or at least when it’s live. The time difference may mean it’s later than i think.
Reflecting today.Will get to Bob Fishman’s talk on Judaism before the day is over.

One cause for reflection is that I’ve aged. My hair went completely gray almost over night. For someone who doesn’t get a lot of sun, skin has taken to wrinkles with a vengeance.One day i have to find a good dentist here(that would take a miracle)and get dentures.I would rather get dental implants but you have to get financing for those.Tells you just how expensive they are.I will have to settle for dentures like my husband did. The menneire’s,while not life threatening,has really taken a toll and the death of my parents sped up the aging considerably. However,this is life.We all get old and our bodies age. NO matter how many surgeries and treatments people undergo you cannot stave off the process.Eventually one gets where all of us are headed.

I’ve accepted. [Let nothing disturb thee.] When you’re young you think it’s forever. I debate;maybe i should have my hair colored;not for the sake of looking younger but at least appearing healthier. The next day i wonder if even that matters?Men age better.Husband hair is gray too but since he’s lost weight-a lot of weight-he looks way better than me.Maybe it’s just me and he just happens to look good to me?

This period of life we think more about going home.Although we should always consider it.I was at Pinterest and ran into a pro abortion,feminist,atheist. Talk about grumpy.Since these people have tossed off God as a myth,got rid of the notion of sin and hell and think we’re stupid for believing-they give the impression they should be on top of the world and we shouldn’t. They’re  the crabbiest people. I don’t know why they are that angry with God when they don’t even believe in God. That would be my first point.I think  deep down they do believe but pride gets the best of them. The other thing that gets them is moral relativism. Got me. It’s one thing not to believe in God.It’s another-and far more lethal-to  know God exists then live as  if He doesn’t.

New movie coming out based on the book,Heaven is For Real.Or it’s already opened. Raymond Arroyo highly recommended it.Good enough for me.

I was interested in reading the book and then seeing the movie when it goes to DVD.

I am convinced heaven is real,without proof.Though i think all of us would like proof positive.Some sign we can see with our own 2 eyes,hear with our own 2 ears,process in our own reality. I hate to admit but since my parents died i have become paranoid about my brother.I have to get at least one email per week or i worry,maybe needlessly.He’s the only tie i have left to them. I think though we would like to have something tangible where heaven is concerned. We want something to show us that it’s REALLY there so when the time comes we know. Of course,the other side of that reality is hell. It’s the one thing we DON’T like to think about. Maybe we’re afraid if we have something tangible showing us heaven is real,then we wouldn’t need anything to show us how real hell is. I believe we are wired to long for heaven.I believe we are wired to want to become one with God. I am convinced it’s that wiring that is proof enough. If we didn’t have the capacity to search for the truth-we DO-then you could say this [life]is it.

It’s what Easter is all about.It’s Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane feeling abandoned by the people closest to Him in this life and His Father in heaven. He doesn’t want to die.He knows what’s up ahead.He KNOWS the suffering He will have to endure. He takes the weight of the sins of mankind on His soul,mind and heart in Gethsemane and it’s painful. Nearly as painful as the physical suffering He will have to endure. It’s the ingratitude of man and lack of love when He’s about to SACRIFICE His own life for it.

Then He rises. There’s our hope. It’s not tangible.It’s not something that we witnessed with our own 2 eyes and ears in our lifetime.We take the word of the people who witnessed it then and the REMARKABLE changes in their lives.We see the remarkable events from that time on.Impossible by human standards. Jesus had to be who He claimed to be and He had to have risen to make such a profound difference in the people who witnessed it.

Death for us is one of two things or both.Scary.Like our birth we only do it once. Like our birth we have no say in that we came into the world and we have no say when we leave. It can also be a release. I think my dad had had enough of this life and when God called him his answer was already yes.

I know there are relationships in this life he wanted to have patched up.It didn’t happen. I’m sure where he is now he’s at peace.I wish it had happened for him too. He didn’t suffer at the end. He died at home-where he wanted to be-in his sleep. I am grateful.

My mother didn’t suffer either. She died at home-where we wanted her to be.Am grateful.She could have suffered horribly.God was good to her and dad. They were devout Catholics. Not perfect,just devout. I believe to this day we have had the last 3 homes we’ve had because they put a good word in for us. I believe we had the apartment across the street from them because they both eventually needed help. It made it easier for all of us.Then we found the next place after they passed away. When we got it i knew that if mom and dad were around they would have enjoyed it too. I told my husband that if anything ever happened to mom,we would leave that apartment.We only stayed there because of my parents.I know that we found this place-perfect for us at this stage of our lives-because  they put in a good word for us.I never dreamed we would end up buying our own home. I never gave it any thought to begin with.  I assumed we would always rent.

In the Kaiser West blog my friend mentioned the little peas under the mattress.Yes,i have those too.

It’s the relationships i’ve lost in my life or never had to begin with.Maybe they’re boulders more than peas?

For awhile there i thought there might be some that would work out.They took a few fits and starts and then puttered to a grinding halt. Painful but it could be a cross God intends for me to bear;quite frankly because i deserve it.

Then there are days i think;God would prefer people patch up their past relationships. Like the one i know Dad should have reconciled and couldn’t.Not his fault.

So i vacillate between those 2 thoughts.   Good Friday comes before Easter Sunday doesn’t it?

 

listen up peeps

 

 

 

 

Let Nothing Disturb Thee

Image

Saint Teresa
(1515-1582)

(Lines Written in Her Breviary)

Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Patient endurance
Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.

I missed a few points in the topic from Bob Fishman today. In fact I kept calling Bob Fishman,Bob Fischer until i went to look for his photo.Then i realized i had his last name wrong all along. Corrected. Am terrible with names,obviously.

Checked out Fr Z’s blog tonight to see what he was up to.Yes,please pray for our priests,including Father Z. Encourage them. I’m sure they need more encouragement than they do complaints.Definitely need our prayers but a pat on the back every week doesn’t hurt either.  Read the Kaiser West blog too. Good one for today. A lot to digest but worth it. Read some other blogs as well. I don’t really have a major topic for the night.  Just the words, let nothing disturb thee. They fit  in well with the Kaiser West blog.

Especially since i dropped by Twitter and realized my grand-daughter is graduating AND attending prom. Where did the time go?

Wonder what she will do after graduation? Hoping her prom night is safe and goes decently.

 We heard from the mortgage company today too.i think we got in over our heads when we had no assurance any of this would work out. We gave up the place we were renting and can’t go back. It’s been rented out already.

Let nothing disturb thee.

I watched EWTNs live broadcast of the Mass from the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC. It looked to me that the papal nuncio, who was celebrating, collapsed during the transfer of the Holy Eucharist. Looked serious. Concerned. Haven’t seen anything in the news yet.Pray for him.

 Rosaries for the victims of the terrible ferry accident in S Korea and their families.

Heartbreaking.
In tomorrow’s topic will finish the notes i left out from Bob Fishman’s series and a second topic on Tolerance.Ok,the lack of. A few words re the reality of heaven too in light of the new movie that is coming out(or is already opening). God willing.For now wishing everyone a safe and peaceful night.
