I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand. A figure walking through the mist, with a flintlock in his hand. His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed. He took off his three cornered hat, and speaking low he said: We
How do we cope during dark times? How do we cease from becoming embittered? I want to share a breakthrough I had in this department.
We must not let the immediate stimuli drive us, we must see beyond the carrots dangled in front of us and the sticks slammed down across our backsides! We must focus on the tyrant driving our burden and ditch the bandwagon to Hell!
I went with some friends to Table Mesa Road to "Brush My Liberty Teeth".
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offer
Rudy Giuliani, Laura Bush, Colin Powell are coming to town to do a motivational meeting along with Zig Ziglar. I have seen Zig myself personally and he really kicks ass [Ed] The pictures I uploaded are worth the read!
AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DownsizeDC.org, the creators of the Read the Bills Act, which inspired a movement, say that a proposed 72-hour rule, permitting the public to see legislation before Congress votes, is "worthless." Bu
Global warming is based 100% on junk science. The most vocal promoters are not interested in the details of physical science. They are interested in two things: political control over the general public and the establishment of international socialis
There's no substitute for practice. Pulling the trigger will put bullets down range. To do it accurately and repeatedly will take time. Make the best use of your time by getting instruction, advise, and pertinent feedback.
With the stroke of a pen, nations are formed, and with the stroke of a pen, they are destroyed. With the stroke of a pen, ideas are also given birth, and hope reborn.
After watching the video on America and the Eagle I cannot stop crying, my heart is broken in so many pieces by the loss of my personal America that I have loved so much over the past 70 years. Such a slow and planned dismemberment of a Proud and Practical nation we once were. Now what are we? Who even cares? Our majestic White House is a shameful reminder of the Crude, vicious, greedy men who we have allowed to inhabit those great rooms. The shame and vile nature of the very people who were supposed to be our guardians and the guardians of our Nation is criminal.
I do not carry a gun because it is comfortable, carrying a gun is not comfortable; I carry a gun because it is comforting. I do not carry a gun because I am afraid; I carry a gun so I do not have to liv in fear. I do not carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I do not carry a gun to scare people; I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
“Are we at last brought to such humiliating
and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?" “Fear is the passion of slaves.” “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am
willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.” “Give me liberty or give me death.” “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but
downright force. Whenever you give up
that force, you are inevitably ruined.” “I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is
the lamp of experience.” “I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish
I could give them, and that is the Christian religion.” “I know no way of judging the future but by the past.”
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and
“If we cannot return to fiscal integrity because the public prefers profusion and prodigality over balanced budgets, we cannot escape paying the price, which is even lower incomes and standards of living for all.” Hans F. Sennholz “The prerequisite for more economic equality in the world is industrialization. And this is possible through increased capital investment, increased capital accumulation.” Ludwig Von Mises “The Resources that government extracts from the private sector to pay for itself are resources that are not available for the private sector to use in producing more goods and services. When the federal government takes money out of our pockets, we have less money to spend or save. When the federal government takes money from business, it has less money to use for investment, research, o
Are You Dead Yet? Are You Dead Yet? We as a nation have been so apathetic and lazy we are all in a terrible mess now, we know there have always been people who think very differently than what we would call sane and have allowed these idiots to rise to the top of the pile and are actually writing bills and laws which will govern the rest of us that have sit back and thought "No one will take these jerks seriously" well guess what they were serious and we allowed them to take over our lives gradually without even a whimper
“In assuming any office besides its essential one, the State begins to lose the power of fulfilling its essential one.” Herbert Spencer “In talking about equality and asking vehemently for its realization, nobody advocates a curtailment of his own present income.” Ludwig Von Mises “The promise of American capitalism is that it makes people richer, freer and more independent. But since the introduction of the Fed, the currency in which Americans keep score has so addled the figures, we scarcely know if we are winning or losing. The dollar we knew as a child in the 1950’s is only worth a tenth as much as today.” Bill Bonner“Public opinion takes no offense at the endeavors of farmers workers clerks teachers, doctors, ministers, and people from many other callings to earn as much as they can. But it censures the capitalists and entrepreneurs for their greed.” Ludwig Von Mises
“Capitalism will continue to eliminate mass poverty in more and more places and to an increasingly marked extent, if it is merely permitted to do so.” Henry Hazlitt “…the greatest political problem facing the world today is…how to curb the oppressive power of government, how to keep it within reasonable bounds.” Leonard E. Read “Liberals see the constitution itself as “living” and “evolving”- that is, gradually turning into something that would be totally unrecognizable to its authors.” Joseph Sobran
“Highly graduated taxation realizes most completely the supreme anger of democracy. Creating a state of things in which one class imposes on another burdens which it is not asked to share, and impels the state into vast schemes of extravagance, under the belief that the whole costs will be thrown upon others.” W.E.H. Lecky “Here in the united States, we’ve seen failure of mass programs of redistribution and the financial crisis to which they give rise. And yet many continue to defend and promote them.” Robert A. Sirico “Neither the entrepreneurs nor the farmers nor the capitalists determine what has to be produced. The consumers do that.” Ludwig Von Mises “To enslave a people, give them money they did not earn.” James Cook “What… can a government do to help the poor? The only answer is the libertarian answer: Get ot of the way.” Murray N. Rothbard “To assign to everybody his p
“No Matter whether it is their intention or not, almost anything that the rich can legally do tends to help the poor. The spending of the rich gives employment to the poor. But the saving of the rich and their investment of these savings in the means of production, gives just as much employment, and in addition makes that employment constantly more productive and more highly paid, while it also constantly increases and cheapens the production of necessities and amenities for the masses.” Henry Hazlitt
“the State, by relieving idleness, improvidence, or misconduct from the punishment, and depriving abstinence and foresight of the reward, which have been provided for them by nature, may indeed destroy wealth, but most certainly will aggravate poverty.” Nassau Senior
“Socialism and interventionism. Both have a common goal of subordinating the individual unc
“Money is color-blind, race-blind, sex-blind, degree-blind, and couldn’t care less who brought you up or is what circumstances.” Felix Dennis “Government planning always involves compulsion.” Henry Hazlitt "The modern campus is deeply obsessed by race and gender, and not much else.”John Leo“The policies advocated by the welfare school remove the incentive to saving on the part of private citizens.” Ludwig Von Mises“The best way to help the poor is to slash taxes and to allow savings, investment, and creation of jobs to proceed unhampered.” Murray N. Rothbard
“Capitalism has been the liberator of mankind.” Richard M. Ebeling “The principle failure of the market has been an inability to make the masses understand it” James Cook "If any behavior needs to be reined in, it should be the propensity of people to use the political system to take other peoples money" Jeffery Singer "The Private Economy, Not the government, create
You will enjoy the new insights that Rick Warren has,
with his wife now having cancer and him having 'wealth' from the book sales.
This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren, 'Purpose Driven Life '
author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California.
In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said: People ask me, What is the purpose of life?
And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.
One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me.

Nick Vujicic has no arms or legs but has come to
terms with his lot in life and he delivers an inspirational
speech to these
school kids that they will probably never forget.
It is a great privilege to welcome you to the Life Without Limbs.org
website. My name is Nick Vujicic and I'm 25 years old. I was born
without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition.
Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given me the
strength to surmount what others might call impossible. Along with
that, the Lord has placed within me an unquenchable passion to share
this same hope and genuine love that I've personally experienced with
more than two million people all over the globe.
Traveling extensively to over 19 nations, I've been extremely humbled by the continuous opportunities that the Lord has given me to share my testimony along with the hope that I have in Jesus with people in so many nations and situations. M
