AMERICA,

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WAKE UP???
Today the president (I refuse to give him a capitol letter) forced the CEO of General Motors to quit. When did he get the power to affect a privately owned business? Well, when they accepted the bailout. Who will be next?
My husband is a Doctor....... what is going to happen to us once he moves onto the health field? After he has that all sewn up, where will he go next? The retail market? Maybe he will have to reign in the evil Wal Mart, or everyone's favorite Target, maybe he will attack Costco or Sam's Club. It is time to stop him. In four years it will be to late. He will have spent into our great grandchildren's lifetime.
I keep hearing a saying that goes: "To each according to his needs by those according to their ability." Those of you who know me personally know I am a very charitable person. I would never allow someone to go hungry or without, knowingly, but I want to continue to have the right to decide whom I will help.
When I was in High School there was another saying, but you heard it coming from Russia. It means about the same, just different words. "The ends justify the means." Think about it. Do They? If not, it is time to get off of our comfortable couches and become active before we lose everything our great grandfathers, fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, aunts, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers fought so hard to give us.
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE AND WHEN WE ADOPT THE ATTITUDE THAT IT IS, WE WILL LOSE IT FOREVER.

I am so with you on this...I just don't get how people are OK with any of this...My brother is an OB-I am fearful of what could happen if they lift the conscience clause...very scary times we live in...I did hear our Archbishop say today that if the conscience clause that the bishops were well prepared to say that they would close the Catholic hospitals if that were to be enforced. 1 out of 5 patients are treated at a Catholic hospital...we can't afford for those to close...we need to keep praying...

Therese - if they pass that clause we can't afford not to close those hospitals. As vital as they are, we cannot bend our principles.
When I heard Obama "fired" the guy, I freaked out and rolled my eyes, because on one hand I thought this is a FREE market, right? Where am I? I thought I was in AMERICA. Then, on the other hand, I'm scuffling with the fact he's messing with our freedom to bear arms. Well, folks, keep your guns and stock up on your ammo. We have a right to have those things! HE's messing with our constitution!

Therese, it is my understanding that if you accept government funding you will have to follow the dictates they set down. Such as the conscience clause. What the Catholic institutions, Hospitals, schools, etc will have to do is give up the government funding and go it on their own. God would bless such a choice and I am sure they would stay very solvent.
Sara, make sure you gun is well oiled and clean too.

So far to the comments all I can say is AMEN AMEN AMEN!! The other night I about fell out of my chair whe on Leno he said (refering to the banks lending)"we have allowed financial inst. to start lending again, well the banks have decided to lend again" Not verbatim I can't remember the exact words but basicly he was saying the GOV stopped the banks fm lending. Then spoke of veting out the strong well run banks to support. I thought HELLO!! This is america...who gave you that power?!?!?!?!?

Look at European "gun control" After studing the history of this we are on the same path they were in taking the guns. About 4 steps away. Have you priced amo? Up almost tripple! Some they are not allowed to sell anymore...and the laws for reloading...Don't get me started....ok, sorry I'm ranting this just fires me up

I wonder if this is the change people thought they were voting for?!
The whole thing makes me so mad and so sad at the same time.

I'm all for helping people but I like the idea of teaching a person to fish for his own food rather than giving him a handout! ESPECIALLY WHEN THE HANDOUTS ARE CONTINUALLY GIVEN TO THE WRONG PEOPLE IN "NEED." I have to control myself and my tongue as I have company in my home and they're all OBAMA SUPPORTERS!

Gramma, you know that 1.5 million people attended the inaugration. But only 14 missed work.

Thought you'd like that.

Therese said...

Don't misunderstand me, I totally agree for the hospitals to close if need be from a moral standpoint...My point is we need to pray for the legislation not to go through.

Gramma 2 Many said...

You are so right Therese, I was just pointing out the other side. I know the legislation is insidious and needs to be stopped.
If all of God's people would act together, we could change the world. Instead we are allowing the enemy to destroy us because we are afraid to speak out, publicly or otherwise.
