Television



CajunDelyte For United States Congress | CajunDelyte For United States Senate | CajunDelyte For United States President

I hardly even turn the thing on anymore.....I am down from 2.5 hours of television a week to perhaps a totals worth of an hour in a week....I don't even watch my crime shows anymore or even divorce court....I am beginning to develope a disdain for certain aspects of the media and television is definitely one of them....Stupid stuff abounds on television....Hollywood is nothing more than a den for the Satanic anyway and they call it a liberal media....Please!!!!! Many of them have sold their souls to sex, drugs, rock and roll (the Satanic stuff and no I don't think that Charles Manson, Alester Crowley and Anton LaVey are people that you need to write songs about) and the occult for temporary gain.... Voodoo has nothing on the black magic that Hollywood and many of our politicians engage in.....Many of these teen shows nowdays are definitely NOT for teens.... They are too graphic (violence and sex wise).....I already have a 14 year old brother who is going through hormonal changes and is most likely going to have me tell my parents on him....I don't like some of the things that he is doing and the crowd that he is hanging with....They put a car in a ditch about three weeks ago....They are experimenting with cigaretts and alcohol.....I am NOT down with that kinda drama at all....I am not raising a teenager and I won't tolerate that kinda stuff around me......

Legends

The Devil went down to Cajun Country--Charlie Daniel's Band....

The Devil went down to Cajun Country and got his azz whipped!!!!



Everyone has heard of this one before.....I heard of a story such as this as a child.....And no I didn't make my story up.....I know people are wanting to know what this man's hand that I saw looked like....It looked like a pig's foot....

de Vos, 1996, as circulated in Danzig in 1875]
It is said that one of the last Sundays [before Lent] a servant woman went to confession and communion. Despite the reprimands of her mother, an honest laundress, who warned her not to desecrate the day by mundane festivities, she couldn't resist the temptation and was going that same night to dance at The Vineyard [a ballroom situated in an inner suburb of Danzig].

The punishment for her impiety came quickly. Around midnight, she saw a handsomely dressed stranger with black hair and eyes that glistened like onyx, coming towards her to ask her for a dance. She took his arm with pleasure as they began to dance with perfect grace, but faster and faster . . .

One of the musicians watched the dancing people carefully, and one can imagine how he felt when he noticed that the stranger had the cloven hoof of Satan! He drew his comrades' attention to it, and in the very middle of the waltz they were playing, they changed the tune and broke into a religous hymn. The clock struck twelve, the devil pulled his partner close to him and in a frantic whirl crossed with her to the other side of the room and crashed through the window. The girl was found lying on the green grass in the garden covered with broken glass. The devil had disappeared.

Get Up/Stand up--Bob Marley


People are beginning to wonder what is so significant about the year of 2006....They wonder why are there so many people in an uproar about the year of 2006.... 2006 is a defining moment for this nation and even the entire world....NOBODY CAN OPT OUT!!!! 2005 was your last chance to opt out so if you didn't throw yourself down a flight of stairs or drink some poisoned kool-aid then FORGET ABOUT IT!!!!

TIME TO START PLAYING HARDBALL FOLKS!!! These people are just warming up!!!! And yes when you start to speak out against them they will start to investigate you or even kill you (if you know too much).....I have been investigated....They will use black magic (that is how they communicate with evil so that plans and times for execution of these plans can be revealed to them)...They will use covert and non-covert organizations to spy on you....Symbolism means a whole lot to these people and so do certain numbers such as 11, 22, and 33.....And May 1st is a significant day for them.....Even back when I lived in San Antonio I knew Bush was spying on folks....Trust me Bush is NOT only spying on potential enemies he is spying on EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES....They would turn my webcam on (and the computer was OFF!!!) to listen as my camera has a built in mike (but it also has a light and when sound is being recorded or video is being filmed then the light would come on)....They do strange stuff like come into your house and click on favorite links and highlight passages (when the web page is loaded) so that you see them...It's their way of leaving their "calling card"....One lady said that they left a bunch of black dots in her home....They opened a pack of chicken noodle soup and poured some out on my tv tray (the one that I am always taking pictures of things on it as it is always set up) and left the rest of the pack in the kitchen....Every post that I posted the other day was deleted and I even went so far as to put one of the posts permalink in my sidebar...It too was erased....We have no freedoms in this country....And Saturday I swear that I got a visit from the Devil himself....PLENTY OF YOU ARE BEING WATCHED AND YET YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW IT OR MOST LIKELY WILL DENY IT....But to do so is to your own detriment....They want you scared...They want you fearful...They want you in denial...I have seen some of the many faces of the devil and he doesn't frighten me in the least bit....Governor Blanco if you make threats and are not willing to carry these things out you will ONLY bring weakness to the State of louisiana and also Kat Landry (and the agenda fronting her) will EAT YOU UP!!!! Because at this point Kat Landry is a bit dismayed at her efforts to recall you and she doesn't seem to know what her next move will be.... It is evident in her efforts that she has not been about the good of Louisiana as a whole but rather to solely recall you Governor....Governor Blanco I sent her 55 of my video CDs and several of my letters to Congress and the President...Do you think she even popped at least one of my CDs in the computer and watched it??? Most organizations are not solely built around one issue because when that issue dies or if that issue loses its spark then the reason for the organization even existing dies.....Kat Landry is trying to formulate her next move...Don't add fuel to her fire!!!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE DEFINITELY KEEPING SCORE AND YOU'D BETTER BE READY TO GO TO BAT WHEN YOUR TURN COMES....That last sentence goes for each and everyone of us....2006 is here and YOU CAN'T OPT OUT!!!!

Spiritual Eyes

Congress you, Vice President Cheney (I am asking God to either change his heart or stop it), Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and Donald Rumsfeld need much prayer but that is what I am here for....I have more "spiritual" eyes on you than the NWO, the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and the MIB (if they were to exist, than again, they just might exist)

It was a "mere coinky drunk" errr "coinky dink"


Now who would have ever known that spirits of addiction reside in Vice President Cheney, Condi Rice and President Dubieux Bush?!! I knew....You can see the vile creatures.....

Weird and long day


Revolution--Kirk Franklin



Worked almost 14 hours today....Something descended from the sky and it was moving (ie it came down really fast)....It was real but it was not real...So I really didn't expect to see anything on the ground when I again looked out the window....It was you know one of those "things"....Seconds after this "thing" (a large grayish opaque winged sort of thing) descended this man walks into my building and gives me some snacks.....Some tea("Alabama sweet tea" he says...He said that he put enough sugar in it to damn near kill a person and that he consumes a 5 lb bag of sugar in two days), hostess twinkies and some sliced cake....I didn't even know him but we always get food from people but it is usually people that we have had contact with for a while.....Friday I was trying not to fall asleep at work as I only get about 4 hours of sleep at night when someone brought us some boudin and cracklin'....That was enough to wake all my co-workers up....My co-workers practically inhaled that cracklin' and boudin....I wasn't going to allow myself to be greedy as others hadn't gotten any but that boudin was delicious....But anyway back to the man....I guess it was a nice gesture....But the Bible says that we should be careful when entertaining strangers as we could possibly entertain angels (good or bad) unaware....I did manage to notice that the man's left hand was quite normal shaped but his right hand was disfigured had a definite hoof shape to it....And this my friends is a very true story.....It is a busy night for the watchers (and so was last night as I don't have any of my ten posts that I posted last night)....and I mean this in more ways than one....

More than I bargained for

Going in Circles---Luther Vandross



Boy did I get more than I bargained for when God told me to start researching Angels.....At first I read about the good angels....Then it took a turn for the worse....At first I didn't think that I was making much headway....I was never one to believe in aliens but I'll tell you this...I whole heartedly believe in the fallen angels and their mischief....I am kinda sorry that I started looking at our nation's leaders pictures....But I have been faithful to God...I remember reading some stuff that sent a cold shiver up my body and even turning to my dog and saying "Don't you even think about it!!" Vile and ungodly creatures exists amongst us and if I give them valid existence then folks they are truly amongst us....There is a generation of vipers (Satan's seed) who exist amongst us....I believe that even Jesus Christ during his time on earth saw these vile beings for who they were....God you always rewards the faithful and you have shown me these ungodly being lot....You said that a terrible, terrible man would come and would have everybody running, crying and screaming for their lives.....When you first showed me this in a dream it was around the time (Reagan-Bush era) that then President G.H.W. Bush declared the beginning of a NEW WORLD ORDER....Why that man wasn't run out of town on a rail or even assignated is a mystery in itself to me.....

Things Get heated for FEMA (ie the front group for "yeah we all know who")

FEMA....FEMA...Bo BEMA....Bananna....Fanna...Bo BEEMA...Fe Fi Fo WEENA...FEMA!!!!!!!!!

New Orleans

You people always want to have your way don't you??? Well I am going to be watching you since you have managed to trump plans for consolidation....Not that two boards are necessarily a bad thing but the reasoning had better not be because people in high offices want to continue in sin expecting GRACE to abound...I assure you that GRACE will not abound on your behalf....God has asked me to get more serious in my prayers to include asking that He require people's souls....I won't allow anyone in office to bring weakness to our port city and even the state of Louisiana.....And I will start asking Him to send volley after volley of tornadoes to New Orleans to wake your butts up if necessary....A spirit of confusion abounds in this special session and God is not happy with that at all....Many of you attending this special session are naturally confused (meaning you love strife and confusion, discord and chaos and that these familiar spirits abound with you)....I am watching you and I will ask God to wake you up.....

Our most powerful weapons are not physical but they are spiritual....Black people tend to have problems with this understanding particuarly because we tend to live in a emotional (physical) realm the majority of our lives....There are vile creatures out there looking to destroy you and hollering "Oh God" at the last minute like we as Black people LOVE to do is NOT going to cut the mustard anymore!!! You people had better wake up and realize that you are in a whole different kind of warfare (President Bush has told you this and you STILL DON'T GET IT!!!)....Spiritual blindness exists all over this nation....There are hidden agendas out there designed just for the unbelieving and the apostate....And yes they are hidden but are nevertheless real.....I have never believed in aliens but I assure when I start hollering out that something is strange about many people who are in charge of this nation then you'd better start listening....Yes they are hiding (in human flesh) and don't think that they are not waiting for the day when they can pull the cloak off....You'd do better to uncloak your eyes, minds, and hearts before they uncloak theirs....


FAITH

"Shall He find Faith"? Email page | Print page

Submitted: Sep 17, 2003 Updated: Apr 24, 2005
By Ray Foster, rf@mt-rushmore.net


Scripture: Luke 18:7,8

Hymn of Praise: 110 God’s Free Mercy Streameth

Hymn of Consecration: 330 Take My Life and Let it Be

Luke 18:1 - 8 And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? (You hear that President Bush?!!! Vice President Cheney?!!!)

I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Jesus was a great Storyteller. One of the reasons He told stories, or parables, was because He could say things in story or parable form that He could not in plain language. Many times the leaders got the message and hated Him while the people heard only the story and loved Jesus. This story in the first 8 verses of Luke 18 is presented as a parable. Parables are stories with meanings. So we need to ask: "What was Jesus saying in this parable?" We are told up front that the point or purpose of the story is to give us hope and endurance: "that men ought always to pray, and not to faint." At the end of the short parable Jesus asks a question: "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" We are in the time when the Lord is coming back to receive His own. Is there faith on earth today?

I have always considered this question the saddest words of Jesus recorded in the Bible. "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Jesus said: "I am telling you this story to give you hope and courage - Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" This fits with His advice to His followers that they are to gain warmth from the coldness and strength from the weakness and courage from the cowardice of others.

What was Jesus saying? What is the meaning of this?

My current understanding is that in order to understand this story we need to know what Jesus had in mind with what He called "faith". The story Jesus told was about a widow that experienced a long delay. She had to be very persistent to get her request answered by an unjust judge. Jesus contrasts the unjust judge with God and those who cry day and night to Him. Jesus says that God bears long and avenges speedily. Then Jesus uses the "N" word, "nevertheless". I understand the "nevertheless" word to mean that in spite of God bearing long; in spite of God avenging those who call on Him speedily, in spite of these two qualities presented about God, when God comes at the end of the world, will He find faith? In order to understand this story we need to know what Jesus had in mind with what He called "faith". Whatever faith is I get the message that we must be prepared to be persistent as the widow was and even when it is apparent that the judge is not a God-fearing judge, to still persist because God is still in control.

The first text that comes to mind in considering the meaning of faith, is Hebrews 11:1 – 3:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Verse 6 "But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

These four verses tell us five things about faith:

Faith is substance.
Faith is evidence
Faith results in a good report with God for those who have it.
Faith gives understanding concerning creation.
Faith must be present to please God.
Let us first of all try to understand what these five faith-things mean. Then we will try to put them all together into one concept.

1. Substance – Faith is substance. What is substance? In Websters 1828 dictionary we find this word: SUB'STANCE, n. [L. substantia, substo; sub and sto, to stand.]

In a general sense, being; something existing by itself; that which really is or exists; equally applicable to matter or spirit.
What I am hearing in this definition of substance is that things with substance are real in terms of being a concrete reality as apposed to an idea or a feeling. Faith is something of substance or concrete or objective reality. When you have faith you have something substantive; something that is real. It is so real that you can stand on it. You can depend on it.

2. Evidence – Faith is evidence. What is evidence? EV'IDENCE, n. [L. evidentia, from video, to see.]

1. That which elucidates and enables the mind to see truth; proof arising from our own perceptions by the senses, or from the testimony of others, or from inductions of reason.

Putting these two "faith is" Scriptural statements together I am reminded of what a little boy said faith was. The candid child said: "Faith is believing what you know aint so!" This ritual, celebration type faith is the modern counterfeit of genuine faith. Putting it into our current vernacular we could say that genuine faith is: "Faith is doing what shows that we know it is so!" My current understanding is that this is what Jesus was talking about. To paraphrase the question Jesus asked we could ask: "When Jesus returns will He find people doing what demonstrates His life?" This I believe is faith! Doing what Jesus would do in our place gives us a good report in heaven. On earth it causes dissention and strife. This is what Jesus meant when He said in Matthew 10:32 - 40 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

And a man's foes [shall be] they of his own household.

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

We confess and deny Jesus most visibly and clearly by what we do. Faith that is seen by Godly living puts us out of harmony and at variance with the ungodly and brings and results in strife and divisions. There is another counterfeit to faith and Godly living which centers on the strife and variance! The terrorist lives out all the faith he or she has and loses his or her life for god’s sake in acts of strife and violence. The question is: "What god is being served?" Jesus warned us about this when he said in John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

In the next verse Jesus tells us why the Godly are being martyred: "And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me."

And this reminds us of something else that Jesus said in John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Then in the next verse He tells us about His faith experience with His Father – how He expressed He knowledge of His Father:

John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

Beloved, God loves each of us. God created us. This is true whether we acknowledge and love God or not. And God has given each of us – because of His love and because of His ownership of each of us based on creation and redemption – God has given each of us a work to do for Him. Faith is expressed and seen in our doing the work that God has given us to do. Faith in God means being faithful to God in doing the work and also living the life of Jesus. Faith is nothing more and nothing less than living the life of God. This is not believing what you know aint so. This is doing what you know is so! I am a child of God by creation and redemption. You are a child of God by creation and redemption. The messenger of the Lord tells us that a man acts out all the faith that they have. In Testimonies to the Church Vol. 2 page 196 we read:

"I have been shown that God's people who profess to believe present truth are not in a waiting, watching position. They are increasing in riches and are laying up their treasures upon the earth. They are becoming rich in worldly things, but not rich toward God. They do not believe in the shortness of time; they do not believe that the end of all things is at hand, that Christ is at the door. They may profess much faith; but they deceive their own souls, for they will act out all the faith that they really possess. Their works show the character of their faith and testify to those around them that the coming of Christ is not to be in this generation. According to their faith will be their works. Their preparations are being made to remain in this world. They are adding house to house, and land to land, and are citizens of this world." {2T 196.2}

Looking again at Webster’s 1828 dictionary:

FAITH, n. [L. fides, fido, to trust; Gr. to persuade, to draw towards any thing, to conciliate; to believe, to obey. In the Greek Lexicon of Hederic it is said, the primitive signification of the verb is to bind and draw or lead, as signifies a rope or cable. But this remark is a little incorrect. The sense of the verb, from which that of rope and binding is derived, is to strain, to draw, and thus to bind or make fast. A rope or cable is that which makes fast. Heb.]

1. Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting on his authority and veracity, without other evidence; the judgment that what another states or testifies is the truth. I have strong faith or no faith in the testimony of a witness, or in what a historian narrates.

Here Webster tells us that the Latin means "trust" and the Greek means "to bind to or make fast". Then Webster goes on to say that the binding aspect of faith is a little incorrect and goes on to define faith as belief or assent of the mind and distances the definition from its original meaning of binding. And this concept is matured in society today. Faith is popularly held as a non-binding belief or mental assent of the mind. This is the counterfeit of true faith that is binding and expressed or shown in works.

The servant of the Lord tells us in Desire of Ages page 309 "The greatest deception of the human mind in Christ's day was that a mere assent to the truth constitutes righteousness. In all human experience a theoretical knowledge of the truth has been proved to be insufficient for the saving of the soul. It does not bring forth the fruits of righteousness. A jealous regard for what is termed theological truth often accompanies a hatred of genuine truth as made manifest in life. The darkest chapters of history are burdened with the record of crimes committed by bigoted religionists."

And beloved this is where we are in the earth’s history. This is what Jesus was talking about. "When the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith?"

So putting all this together, genuine faith is acting out what you know is so. Genuine faith is also being faithful in the same way that God is faithful. Faith is being faithful like God is faithful. God has faith in what we can all become through His grace. We can all become like God in character because the life of God is in you by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. God is the only source of true faith. Faith is believing in and accepting other people and investing time and effort in them because this is how God is and this is what the Holy Spirit empowers and prompts you to do. Faith is living the life of Jesus because you are moved by the love of God. Faith is the visible expression of love. Faith is the visible expression of the life of God in you.

Now you may be feeling a storm of sentiments and surges of feelings within you. You may not have had a past experience similar to my wife. She was brought up in a loving family and knows no stranger and admits to no hurt in her whole life – even if I have made her cry a few times. Your past experience may have been characterized as being bruised and hurt and walked on and bullied. You may have built up thick, strong walls of defense to protect yourself from others and the idea giving up all this defense and of accepting and believing in others is met with incredulity based on your past experience. If faith includes accepting and believing in others the way God does, you want nothing to do with it!

I grew up in boarding school. I was 5 years of age when I was sent off to boarding school. One of the reasons I was sent off to school at age 5 was that I was so resistant to the efforts of my mother to teach me at home. We lived on the edge of the Kalihari desert in what was then called Bechuanaland which was then a British Protectorate in Africa. Today it is called Botswanna. Today it is an independent nation. When my mother tried to teach me she had me sitting on a chair at the table with a book in front of me and I would stiffen up my body like a log and slide off the chair and go plop under the table! I was quite resistant to spankings. So it was partly in exasperation that I was send off to boarding school. At boarding school there were the usual fights and clicks and pecking order among the students. One of the tough boys was Peter Potgieter. One day Peter told me that if I had any trouble; if anybody tried to beat me up, just to let him know and he would take care of them. I had faith in Peter Potgieter. The faith I had in Peter Potgieter gave me great freedom of mind and movement. And I was free from fear. I knew that Peter would do all he said he would do and I acted out that confidence that I had in Peter. This is what Jesus wants our faith to do for us. Jesus says to each of us: "If you have any trouble with anybody or with any circumstance or with any sin in your life – just let me know and I will take care of it for you!" Jesus is real. His power is unlimited. We can act out and we do act out all the faith we have in Jesus.

And I believe that being fearful of what will happen to us if we allow God to pull down our walls of self-defense and open our minds to having belief and trust and acceptance of others the way Jesus does is an important obstacle to faith today. We do not mind to believe with a mental assent that Jesus is all He says He is. But to allow God to make me all that Jesus was on earth; to be as vulnerable as Jesus allowed Himself to be to shame and spitting and rejection and crucifixion – that is a major reason for refusing the love and the faith of Jesus. It is fear of being bullied and unwillingness of taking that risk that may prevent me from accepting the gift of faith that is essential to have in my life in order to live the life of Jesus and to please God in the same way that Jesus did. Even when we understand that God only allows what is for our best good to happen to us, we still do not want it. We want peace in our times!

So what is the answer to this realistic fear? First, by God’s grace, we have to be willing to die rather than to be separated from God. The love of self will separate us from God. We need to be willing to give up anything and everything for God’s sake. It is a distortion of the truth as it is in God to use the phrase "thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself:" Leviticus 19:18 to mean that self-love is good. What is being said is that as we in our depraved state love ourselves, that is the way we will be in our love to our neighbour when we are converted and cleansed from self-love. This is the end point that regularly occurs in our Christian walk. Self is an idol. We cannot protect ourselves in reality. Being willing to put self on the altar of sacrifice in the same way that Abraham bound Isaac on the altar of sacrifice, is what God asks us to do on a daily basis. So what are we to do?

There are four steps that we must take to put self on the altar of sacrifice and receive the gift of faith and love and joy:

Come to Jesus by faith – just as we are with all of our fears and lack of genuine faith.
Take hold of the merits of Jesus. Take hold of the faith of Jesus and ask God to make the faith of Jesus your faith.
Place self on the altar of sacrifice. Let go of self and put it on the altar of sacrifice.
Accept the faith and love and life of Jesus for God’s sake and to the glory and honor of God.
"The assurance of God’s approval will promote physical health." 3BC1146 Physical health includes mental health and is the foundation of spiritual health. I understand that your church is involved in a lot of outreach. With self crucified and Jesus on the throne of the heart is the only way to reach out to others and share with them what Jesus has done for you.

Those who would like to risk all for Jesus and put self on the altar of sacrifice and receive the gift of faith and love, are invited to come forward and knell with me. Knell with me as you are able to and we will ask Luie to pray for the Holy Spirit to fill us and make us wholly God’s.

I am soooooo glad that Bush is not the Christ and is rather an "Anti-Christ"...Anybody can be crucified but Bush is soooooooo uninformed (even misinformed) that he would have not known (or would conviently have forgotten) that RESSURECTION is the main part of who Christ is.....Bush is anti-Christ....He always demands that others sacrifice.....Christ has more than proved himself to be THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB.....Bush is just a dum goat and this more than just a mere "coinky dink" (coincidence)!!!! By the way didn't Senator Frist take a picture resembling something like this???

The Dream


God did tell me that He wanted to show me something in a dream....But I never go to sleep....I get like an average of 4 hours a night of sleep....well I dozed off at work as I was sitting in a truck for 12 hours and I had this dream.... I don't really write too much about my dreams as I am not really good at interpreting dreams....Most of the time I have to wait for the message to be revealed to me such as when I dreamed that Mama (People should realize by now that I was talking to Governor Blanco in my dream about the tornadoes) and I were standing on a hill looking at tornadoes causing destruction....I kinda of like this little cloud of anointing that envelopes me most of the time....At times it feels so strong that I feel like I can't stand (up).....Okay...Now for the dream.....

The first part of the dream I really don't remember but I remember walking outside of my parent's house with others joining me and spotting a nest in a tree....I said to everyone "Come and see this nest"......When I looked inside the nest there were tons of baby chicks (yellow colored)....I said "Wow....There are tons of chicks there....See them??" The chicks were startled and many of them flew away (but in the dream I knew they would come back).....I could then see the inside of the nest clearly....I saw five mother hens and three fish....I told everyone "Look!!! They even have their own food source!!!" I have no idea what this dream means.....None....Hens and Chicks in a nest?!! Fish as a food source??!!

GOP chief plans to show Democrats as weak, use blogs
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican national chairman Ken Mehlman on Friday outlined a political strategy for 2006 to portray Democrats as too weak to protect the country and to bypass the mainstream media to spread the GOP message.

"Democratic leaders always seem to blame America first," Mehlman said.
By Chip Somodevilla, Getty Images

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Mehlman roused the crowd at a Washington hotel to cheers as he told them President Bush had finally responded to decades of terrorist attacks.

"For a generation, terrorists learned they could make war on free nations without fear of war in return," Mehlman said, adding that Bush understood how to respond. "On Sept. 12, the terrorists got war in return."

Bush's stance on fighting terror is popular with participants in this annual meeting of hard-line conservatives from around the country and so are his federal court appointments.

But many at this national conference question the Bush administration's spending, deficits, immigration policies, prescription drug plan and increased use of federal power.

The GOP chief said such questioning is healthy for the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

John R. Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, keynoted the conference dinner, sketching out the Bush administration's efforts to reform the U.N.

Bolton's targets included waste and abuse of peacekeeping operations reported by the U.N. itself that he said virtually matches in losses the amount the United States contributes to the operation.

He also condemned a "culture of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel" that he said was pervasive at the United Nations and includes offices that exist only as part of an anti-Israel network.

Turning to Iran, whose nuclear programs have been referred to the Security Council, for possible punitive action, Bolton said Iran should follow Libya's lead, which abandoned its pursuit of unconventional weapons and shipped the technology to a U.S. facility at Oak Ridge, Tenn. Bolton drew a laugh by saying the United States could find room at Oak Ridge for Iranian nuclear equipment, as well.

"Like Libya, they can come to the conclusion that their pursuit of nuclear weapons is more harmful than the elimination of the program," Bolton said.

The fight against terrorism is centered in Iraq, Mehlman said, and the only way to prevent terrorists from taking charge there is to stick it out and win.

He quoted Democratic chairman Howard Dean saying that the idea the United States can win in Iraq is wrong and reminded that Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., accused American soldiers of "terrorizing women and children."

"Democratic leaders always seem to blame America first," Mehlman said, "especially when a Republican is in the White House."

Mehlman said the loss in popularity of the mainstream media — both the evening network news and daily newspapers — is an opportunity for conservatives. He pointed to the growing popularity of talk radio and blogging.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told the group he plans to push for a Senate vote in May on the inheritance tax, called the "death tax" by conservatives. And he said he would push for a vote June 5 on "the marriage protection amendment" that seeks to amend the Constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.


Yawn...Shut up Senator Mehlman...I bet you have taken the spiritual mark of the beast also!!!! I am going to ask God to show me if you truly have!!!! Then I am going before the throne of Grace and ask God to drag you before His Throne of Judgement (Don't let him fillabuster Lord!!!) and weigh you in the balances and if you are found wanting I am going to ask God that your punishment be swift and severe!!! You sound like a corupt soul!!!! Lawd knows that Senator Bill Frist is....God will reveal this to me if you are.... Dum demon!!!!! You sound like a snake in the grass....Shut up!!!! Did you serve in the military?!!! I will found out.... We are no longer bound to Dubieux's tactics of fear and condemnation....

It's time America....It's time Louisiana....Consecrate, separate (come out from among the tares) and dedicate yourselves (to the Lord) and let's do battle with these demons!!!! We definitely have them trembling!!!!

Mary Beth Cahill puts Ken Mehlman in his place
Mary Beth Cahill is John Kerry's campaign manager. Ken Mehlman is George W Bush's campaign manager. The Bush campaign is a bit miffed over some rude anti-Bush comments that Whoopi Goldberg apparently made at a Democratic fund-raiser. Ken Mehlman has asked Mary Beth Cahill to provide a tape of the event. Ms Cahill's response is quite reasonable: she will provide the tape if the Bush administration will be a bit more forthcoming with some information they've been requested many times to provide. Ms Cahill's response to Mr Mehlman is posted here. And for those too busy to click the extra link, I've copied it for you here:

Ken Mehlman
Campaign Manager
BUSH-CHENEY '04, Inc.
P.O. BOX 10648
Arlington, VA 22210

Dear Ken:

Over the past several months, allies of the President have questioned John Kerry’s patriotism while your staff has criticized his service in Vietnam. Republicans and their allies have gone so far as to launch attacks against his wife and your campaign has run $80 million in negative ads that have been called baseless, misleading and unfair by several independent observers.

Considering that the President has failed to even come close to keeping his promise to change the tone in Washington, we find your outrage over and paparazzi-like obsession with a fund-raising event to be misplaced. The fact is that the nation has a greater interest in seeing several documents made public relating to the President’s performance in office and personal veracity that the White House has steadfastly refused to release. As such, we will not consider your request until the Bush campaign and White House make public the documents/materials listed below:

? Military records: Any copies of the President’s military records that would actually prove he fulfilled the terms of his military service. For that matter, it would be comforting to the American people if the campaign or the White House could produce more than just a single person to verify that the President was in Alabama when said he was there. Many Americans find it odd that only one person out of an entire squadron can recall seeing Mr. Bush.

? Halliburton: All correspondence between the Defense Department and the White House regarding the no-bid contracts that have gone to the Vice-President’s former company. Some material has already been made public. Why not take a campaign issue off the table by making all of these materials public so the voters can see how Halliburton has benefited from Mr. Cheney serving as Vice-President?

? The Cheney Energy Task Force: For an Administration that claims to hate lawsuits, it’s ironic that the Bush White House is taking up the Courts’ time to keep the fact that Ken Lay and Enron wrote its energy policy in secret behind closed doors. Please release the documents so that the country can learn what lobbyists and special interests wrote the White House energy policy.

? Medicare Bill: Please release all White House correspondence between the pharmaceutical industry and the Administration regarding the Medicare Bill, which gave billions to some of the President’s biggest donors. In addition, please provide all written materials that directed the Medicare actuary to withhold information from Congress about the actual cost of the bill.

? Prison Abuse Documents: A few weeks ago, the White House released a selected number of documents regarding the White House’s involvement in laying the legal foundation for the interrogation methods that were used in Iraq. Please release the remaining documents.

We also wanted to wish you a happy anniversary. As we are sure you and the attorneys representing the President, Vice-President and other White House officials are aware, today marks one year since Administration sources leaked the identity of a covert CIA agent to Bob Novak in an effort to retaliate against a critic of the Administration.

In light of the fact that the Administration began gutting the laws protecting the nation’s forests yesterday, we hope you will accept the paper on which this letter is written as an anniversary gift. (The one year anniversary is known as the “paper anniversary.”)

Sincerely,

Mary Beth Cahill

Campaign Manager

Hand Me Down

cho: Oh, hand me down (Hand me down)
Hand me down (hand me down)
Hand me down my silver trumpet Gabriel
Hand it down, Throw it down, Any old way, just get it down
Hand me down my silver trumpet Lord

Oh, Moses had a lot to do
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel
When he led the Children of Israel through
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Lord.

Oh, Satan's mad an' I am glad
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Gabriel
he lost a soul he thought he had
Hand me down my silver trumpet, Lord.


God did tell me start buying instruments...

Numbers 10.1-10, Moses was told by God to "Make two silver trumpets; of hammered work you shall make them; and you shall use them for summoning the congregation, and for breaking camp." The trumpets were also to be used to sound the alarm when the people went to war, in religious ceremonies, and at feasts. As a fanfare instrument the trumpet was used in celebration of Solomon's temple with 120 priests sounding the horns, as recorded in II Chronicles 5.12-13.

I hate demons!!!!

Sigh..I bet people are wondering why I am talking about (familiar spirits) demons so damn much....Familiar spirits??? That means that they have been around a long time....It is because I can see what lies past that cheap costume of human flesh that many of our leaders inhabit....Vile and ungodly souls....Ugly and detestable beings.....I'll be glad then God destroys each and every one of their vulgar souls or whatever they think they might be (ie the illuminati)....I call them serpents and dragons because that is what the Bible describes them as (ie a generation of vipers).....After all that is what they look like....I know they are not about peace and love...They are about hate and destruction.....I don't subscribe to the alien theory because most alien theories are without God, without angels (even the fallen ones), without the spiritual, and without faith and free will....."An alien abducted me and he told me that he was going to probe me whether I liked it or not..." is their reasoning....This succeeds in making people feel hopeless and helpless to an alien with an anti matter particle gun or even an alien invasion or some disgusting probing without their consent.....There has been more sightings of miracles, healings and angels throughout the ages than there have been of UFOs, aliens and alien abductions.....The Bible says that you shall know them by their fruit.....If an alien is probing you or abducting you against your will then that alien is demonic and is in no way good....And I don't care what you call the alien....You can call it an alien or a demon for all I care the works are demonic and the alien (demon) will burn in hell before it is all over with.....People didn't understand a lot of things back in the day and even now because even the smartest of us are limited in our understanding...."God said that we know in part and prophecy in part"....I know what I have been seeing and I can tell you this: Whether you believe in aliens, demons or not there are things outside of you that are working against you and they are definitely NOT looking out for your best interests.....

With that said I still think that the aliens are just ungodly spirits....

I had one more story to tell....Back when I lived in San Antonio I took my son to the ER at Fort Sam Houston around 9:30 or so that night....We waited in the BAMC er waiting room for at least 6 hours waiting to be seen....That was a terrible night for San Antonio as BAMC had twelve traumas...No lie and 9 people died that night in the hospital as a result of the traumas....I was getting my son a snack and lettinghim walk around as he was aggitated...I was annoyed because they were taking so long to see us so we walked around a bit near the machines (candy, sodas, etc)...This (automatic??) door kept annoying me in that it opened and closed 9 times......

I later found out when I later visited the Peds clinic (the hallway leads to the emergency room) that the DOOR WAS NOT AN AUTOMATIC DOOR.....Things that make you go hmmmmm.....

Needless to say we did not get seen at BAMC that night and had to go to Wilford Hall Medical Center on the other side of town....We got home at 0730 that morning...Boy was I pooped....

EDITORIAL: Louisiana's stick


By: The Times Picayune
Published: Sunday, February 5, 2006

Louisiana's leaders have made a strong case for getting a larger, fairer share of offshore oil royalties for the state; so far, though, reason and persuasion haven't worked with Congress or the Bush administration.


But Louisiana also has a stick -- the power to oppose the sale of new offshore oil leases -- and Gov. Blanco made the right move by showing that she might use it.

She threatened, in a letter to the Minerals Management Service, to withhold support for an August sale unless Louisiana gets a more substantial piece of the revenue. And she makes the crucial link: Louisiana can't continue to support an industry that takes a real toll on the state's coastline without making sure that its needs are met.

"It is abundantly clear that allowing development to occur where inadequate provisions are made for the protection of that development is irresponsible," she wrote.

That's entirely reasonable. It's also good strategy. Now is the right time to remind Congress and the White House that Louisiana could be less cooperative in the future.

While the U.S. secretary of the interior could override the governor, the result would be a lengthy legal battle, something that the federal government would rather not go through.

But for Louisiana, it's a fight worth waging. This state desperately needs a substantial, guaranteed source of money to restore eroded marshes and rebuild shattered barrier islands. The quest has taken on a greater urgency following the depredation of Hurricane Katrina. Royalties from oil and gas production on the Outer Continental Shelf -- which bring in $6 billion a year -- are the logical source.

The strong arguments Louisiana has made for boosting its share of this revenue stream are still valid. If anything, Katrina makes them more persuasive.

There's equity: Coastal energy producing states like Louisiana aren't getting a fair shake compared to inland states that get 50 percent of the revenue from minerals extracted from federal lands within their boundaries. Louisiana has an especially poor deal. While Texas and Florida get 100 percent of the revenue from production 9 miles in the Gulf, Louisiana has control over only the first three miles and gets 27 percent of the revenues from drilling from 3 to 6 miles out. After that, Louisiana gets nothing.

There's also fairness: Louisiana has borne the burden of energy production off our shores; 80 percent of production in the Gulf of Mexico is off the coast of Louisiana. But that's come at a price. Oil and gas exploration has carved up our wetlands, and that's one of the factors in the enormous land loss this state has suffered. Using some of the money that the government is taking in from production to address the resulting environmental damage just makes sense.

And then there's Katrina. The storm proved that Louisiana leaders haven't exaggerated the state's vulnerability to storms -- a situation that's been made worse by coastal erosion. People lost their homes and businesses, the places where they play and work, worship and learn. They also lost their lives.

But it would be shortsighted to think the losses are confined to the Gulf Coast. Our perilous geography also affects the nation's energy supply because platforms and pipelines are vulnerable. A quarter of domestic drilling takes place off Louisiana's shores. The rest of the country got a taste of what that means for them when gasoline prices spiked after Katrina and Rita.

Any one of these arguments ought to be enough to persuade Congress to give Louisiana what it has sought for so long: half the revenue from oil and gas produced from 6 miles to 200 miles off its shore.

Former Sen. John Breaux says the moment might finally have arrived for Louisiana, and there are signs that he could be right. In the State of the Union address, for example, President Bush talked about the need to reduce dependence on foreign oil. That ought to mean looking out for states like Louisiana that provide domestic energy. Helping the nation to be more self-sufficient is important, but states might well hesitate if the toll taken by production is too great and the rewards too paltry.

The oil industry seems to understand that. Jeff Copeskey of Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association said that his organization hopes Gov. Blanco won't have to make good on her threat. But he said the letter "puts everyone on notice that the governor takes this very seriously."

She should. Louisiana must have the financial means to save its coast from the Gulf of Mexico's maw. But if the reasons for saving Louisiana don't prove convincing to the rest of the country, the state has leverage. And its leaders are ready to use it.


Say she won't do it!!!! Just say she won't!!!! I double dog dare you!!!!!!

p.s. President Bush God did tell me to do research on angels and now I know why they are so important (and no I don't believe in worshiping angels as it is contrary to Biblical scripture...Angels do the will of God)....The (whirl)winds of God's judgement are blowing President Bush....You knew exactly what you were writing when you wrote "Let freedom reign".....Unlike most people Mr. prez I don't underestimate you at all.....You speak many dark sentences (Daniel 11) "What has happened down here is the winds have changed..."---Randy Newman Louisiana 1927
