Yesterday both of our cats, Goofy and Patches, passed away. Not sure why. They were 9 years old. Somehow in the apartment we got fleas even though they were indoor cats. We tried some things to get rid of the fleas but nothing worked very well. Both Kevin and I are crushed, hurting so badly. They helped me get through my hysterectomy and so much else. I miss them so so so much.
I love them so much with all my heart. They will be in my heart always. They will be remembered always. RIP Patches RIP Goofy

While Dear Leader fills the Democratic coffers and dines on Burgers while Mooch is not around, the world continues to go down the crapper. I caught Obama’s first embarrassing remarks regarding the crash while he hung out on the 495 bridge outside Wilmington, Delaware. Oh, he was a real joker.

Here is how it should have gone. The full talk was 17 minutes. He cancelled his vacation and came back to the White House.
What the heck, this is the real joke. This demonstrates our Savant in full dress mode with Romney during just a smidgen of time ago during a debate

Is this climb up the mountain ever going to end? I feel like as time goes by life just gets tougher. Those who have been following this blog for a while know that my health issues have worsened over the past five years. Then you add onto that financial, car, and apartment issues. Even though at the present time I feel like I’m climbing up Mt. Everest I can feel God’s presence, Him saying “Be patient. Trust me. Things will be better soon.” I have definitely been relying on my faith to help me get through this. God is good. God is love. God is there for us to lean on.
Due to my dealing with some major issues I have for the most part been absent from the blogosphere. Hopefully things will be resolved soon and I will be back to blogging regularly. God Bless.
Teenager Vincent Parker, 16-years old, had his iPod taken away by his parents. Vincent was furious. He became unhinged and bludgeoned his parents with a long list of objects in the house. Except a gun. Killing over an iPod? Our society has become excuse ridden, irresponsible, and morals are lacking. Parents have failed to teach their kids certain values that were taught to previous generations, such as respecting your elders. Is this the result of progressive beliefs and/or policies? Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere would answer yes to that question. Is this the result of a ‘me me me culture’? Is this the result of society breeding individuals so that immediate gratification is built into their psyches? Today this is the norm and not the exception. Violence is on the rise among youth to individuals in their twenties and I believe that this is society’s own making.

Very broadly speaking there are two types of people – those who are bent toward pulling the loose threads further unraveling a weakness or elements of insecurity in others and those who recognize the beautiful vulnerability of such flaws and serve to weave them back into the other person’s story helping them find their way to strength and courage.
Our voice, influence and impact in each others lives is the greatest resource we have been given.
I’m not saying everyone must accept every bizarre oddity and quirky trait about everyone else. There will always be people we don’t mesh well with and those with whom, try as we may, we simply clash. That’s human nature even among believers. It’s about motive and the ultimate goal for our words and actions as instruments of redemption or tools of destruction. It cannot be both.
I was offended by someone recently. I own…

The Obama regime must think the American people are stupid.
We know the White House’s NSA (National Security Agency) collects every email in the United States, if not the whole world, along with our every phone call, credit card transaction and God knows what else. (See “NSA whistleblowers: Govt is spying on every single American” and “Big Brother’s secret NSA Data Center in Utah”)
But the POS’s Internal Revenue Service — the same IRS that’s been caught with the proverbial “smoking gun” proving not only that the agency has targeted Conservatives and Christians for special scrutiny, but that the source of the targeting goes right up to the White House — actually wants us to believe that they’ve lost two years’ worth of Lois Lerner‘s emails. (See “Judicial Watch has documents tracing IRS-gate to Wash. DC”)
Lerner is the Obama henchwoman who, as Director of the…
