Wassup! So this is an email I got.. and I really liked it.. so I figured I'd post it :D

About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy; The USA is here in 2008 and is headed to #7
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage."

Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the 'complacency and apathy' phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the 'governmental dependency' phase.If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.If you are in favor of seeing the end to our country as we know it, then by all means, delete this message. If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.


Courage is a door that can only be opened from the inside.

yeah... I'm really tired.. otherwise I might add on some of my own commentary.. but for now, I'm just gonna leave it as is :D Ponder, think, leave comments, enjoy :D

So this is a blog post I put on my myspace, but wanted to share...

So ok... I don't know how many of you voted... some, it was made apparent the other night as the election closed... as for me... I voted for the only candidate that was against abortion, for two reasons. 1. Abortion is murder. 2. Any vote that wasn't for obama was a good vote. That's right. I DID just say that. It's my blog and I'll vent if I want to.

I could go on about how the American people are retarded for letting a smooth-talking muslim n****r pull a race card (among other things) to win a position he is clearly not fit for. But that's not the reason for this post. He's already in, there's nothing I can do about it... heck, there was nothing I could do before the voting even began! How many of you know that he was officially the new President-elect of The United States of America before the voting had even closed up here? Yeah that's right. Our votes mean squat. Again, I digress... the reason that started this post was a response to a manipulated image I created and placed on my myspace page. And yes, as my profile default image.

I am not afraid to show my humor and thoughts in a slightly macabre manner, I call 'em as I see 'em. For those of you who have looked at my picture, or those who haven't... read the inscription at the bottom. I bet most of you can't even tell me where I pulled it from. I am in no way saying that I personally want to shoot obama, however... I honestly don't expect him to survive his term. As a Christian, I am to pray for our elected officials

I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men; for kings[eg. President] and all that are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity[dignity] (1 Timothy 2:1-2, ASV),
and submit to their given authority.

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by Him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. (1 Peter 2:13-17, KJV)
But also, as a Christian, I report to a higher authority, and The Almighty God has given us authority, as believers, to stand up and do what needs to be done, regardless of our earthly leaders.

Do you all really know who he is? Or can you not look past his race and see what he stands for, not who he is. We're not running a fricking popularity contest here!!! We're supposed to be deciding the fate of our NATION! Choosing the most capable man for the job, not the one that makes us "look good" because we don't let "prejudice" stand in the way. WTH??? Slavery was abolished hundreds of years ago... GET OVER IT!!! What happened to "All men are created equal"? This man who apparently, through popular vote, is now our President-elect, is one that has openly admitted to refusing to put his hand over his heart during our National Anthem, says he's a Christian, but has thrown his own church under the bus numerous times, wants to change our anthem and flag, and take away our guns.... I don't think so.

So I know that some of you may have voted for obama, and I honestly mean no disrespect or offense, it's a free country and men have died, are dying for that right. I would be doing them a grave disservice by blasting people for what they believe. As I have told many people, and I'll say it again, I cannot force anyone to believe the way I do. I can only show them what I believe and know to be true and right, and hope and pray that God opens their eyes.

But until then, as an American, I will fight to retain my right to make images that express my feelings, I will fight to retain my right to keep and bear arms, and I will most definitely fight to keep America the way it was created. ONE NATION UNDER GOD!

so I was thinking.....

So a friend of mine on MySpace just posted this bulletin (answers removed to protect parties involved) and it got me to thinking....

if you get more than 30 I strongly recommend some counseling!
If you get more than 20 you’re paranoid.

If you get 10-20 then u are normal.

If you get 10 or less you’re fearless.

People who don’t have any are full of it.

So yeah, I would have to disagree with the statement at the beginning of this.. "people who have none [fears] are full of it" no, people who have no fear understand what this life is about, and that it doesn't matter what anybody thinks, it doesn't matter what happens to you. If you know where you're going, know who you are, and know why you're here, then you have nothing to fear. My mom once told me of a sermon that she heard... the main message was that all fear was, is False Evidence Appearing Real. So while yes, at times I experience apprehension, or mild trepidation, it's not fear. You see the problem for what it is, realize that it's nothing that you can't handle, and stop being afraid of it.
I'm one of those people. At times people say I come off as cocky, or arrogant, so what? Self confidence is knowing who you are, and that nothing anybody else says amounts to a hill of beans. And when you're not afraid of anything, yeah, it can appear cocky. So that was my random vent for the day! Hope y'all have a good one!
later days,
