What Causes Hate?

I just read an article on the internet about a movie premier of hate toward Sarah Palin. The woman who has done nothing but attempt to run for vice president and who has still not come out and said if she was going to run for president in 2012 - has been attacked repeatedly by the extremists and Hollywood. Go figure. I don't know why - unless it's because she's pretty and smart and knows what she's doing. She doesn't want to play their games, she's about making things work, and she's real. Hollywood is all about imagination and fantasy. She's about reality and making it work. I feel sorry for anyone who manages to get in the public eye. Their lives become a nightmare of avoiding the paparazi and the press, having to justify themselves and their decisions and becoming the 'watched' one around the nation. It's not worth it. NONE of it. I hope she finds the comfort and respect of those that do appreciate her to be enough to offset the caustic and filthy words of those attacking her.
It's a shame.
For what it's worth, I think she's great and I would have voted for her on McCains ticket, only to hope he had a heart attack and she took over. If she does choose to run next year, I think she'll be giving all of them a run for their money.
Just my opinion. ;)

Okay...where did we loose it?

I'm not a Huckabee fan, I don't even really know the man. But today he made a statement that is garnering him a lot of flack. Personally, I'm impressed. It's the first time I've seen a politician stand up and say someone is putting the wrong message out there for our youth, namely morality issues.

He slams Natalie Portman with flaunting her unwedded pregnancy, and giving people the idea that it's okay to have children without getting married.

Wow.. really?? Who'da thunk?

I think it's cool that he actually spoke his mind. I'm surprised that he said it, I mean, he's not LDS and he doesn't get along with Romney, but good job. Well said. Surprise surprise...

Check out the article...

He Won!!!

For the first time since the elections in 2008, there is a bright spot on the horizon! I don't think I've heard such happy comments in a long time. I'm trying to feel optimistic, that this could mean the turn around of things, but there is a long road ahead, and no one knows how long it will take.

At least we finally got the word out, and perhaps the president is finally getting the message. If not, well, at least it's begun.

We're taking America back!!

I guess I'm a Hate-monger...

I read an article yesterday morning, which was about an interview Glenn Beck had with Katie Couric. Now, personally, I don't watch the news. I look at some places online, but most of the stuff is caustic and full of bad news.

Anyway, apparently she had him on her show and talked about various issues. What got me (I didn't have time to download the video clip) was the comments at the bottom. Most of them were obnoxious. One said Glenn Beck was a Hate Monger. One of them said he was crazy and a fool, yada, yada, yada.


I was introduced to Glenn Beck a year or so ago when my husband started listening to him on the radio in the car on the way home from work. During the past year, we have listened to him warn us about the government and what was happening. This past March, we accepted his challenge to come on 9/12 and remember what we felt the day after 9/11 eight years ago.

Since that time, we have gotten more involved in the political process and how our government works. He has encouraged anyone listening at every turn to read and learn and educate ourselves on how our government works and what is going on.

He repeats over and over not to take his word for anything, but to read for ourselves.

What saddens me is those people who are so caught up in the media reports that they aren't seeing what's going on in reality. They aren't reading for themselves. They aren't aware.

Glenn Beck is simply trying to wake everyone up to what is involved in our constitution, and what we need to do to support it.

Before you get caught up in the negative, name calling that is going on, take a good look at the real actions.

Like the march on Washington on 9/12. It was peaceful, it was well mannered, it was NOT violent, and there was no one arrested. Unlike the protesting for the G20 summit, in which there was lots of violence, over 80 people arrested, and yet that was a 'permitted' gathering.

Wake up America. The time is growing short. Don't let the main stream media take you for a fool.

9/12 -- Where Were YOU?

Saturday was an amazing day. I don't know if you knew, but there was a march on Washington DC Saturday, commemorating the day after 9/11, when all of America was one and united against all enemies.

Many people have totally forgotten 9/11. We put yellow ribbons around posts outside our home, and our neighbors thought our son had gone into active duty and was in Afghanistan. We said, no, we were remembering 9/11. Our little neighbor said, "Oh, I totally forgot..." sigh.

While we have started to wake up the nation to our situation, and have started, I think we still have some work to do.

If you have neighbors who seem to have forgotten, remind them. We should never forget.

I Think the Time Has Come...

If you're LDS, you're familiar with the story in the Book of Mormon where the Nephites are under attack (again) from the Lamanites, but they are struggling with some political issues from within that threaten their surviving the fight with their enemies. It has become so dire, that one of their generals decides he's had enough and makes a flag out of his coat, writes on it "In memory of our God, our religion, our freedom, and our peace, our wives and our children". He then attaches it to a pole and goes around through the city to remind the people of what was really important. They are able to turn the tide, get rid of all the political unrest and save their city.

I sat in Sacrament meeting on Sunday and listened to a talk about Thomas Payne and our forefathers and how they were deceived during one battle that was a minor skirmish to everyone else. Thomas Payne wrote an article about it, and pointed out how we were in this for the long run, not just for one battle. It made me think about our country and the condition we are in right now.

I think we are about to the point of Captain Moroni again. I think there are many people who feel we are back in the 1770's and facing a tyrant that isn't listening or caring about our problems, just creating more of them.

Just look at the Cap and Tax Bill that just passed the house!! What are they thinking?? How could this possibly be of benefit to the American people? It doesn't help anyone that matters! Over the past six months, I have watched new laws enacted, new stimulus packages given out, more money spent than seems real. No one is standing as check and balance. No one is watching the leaders. What recourse do we have when our leaders don't listen to us?? The majority of the American people can not possibly want to be headed in the direction we are going, do they?? NO ONE I've talked to where does that leave us?

It's scary to think of where we are at, and what could happen to us in the next three years.

There are many voices speaking out about our plight...but no one is taking initiative, no one is standing up and waving the flag. At least no one that our leaders are willing to listen to. We have to do it en mass. I don't know that we are willing to do that yet.

If you have concerns and think it's time to join in with those of us who are concerned, find out about the 9/12 project. Glenn Beck started it, but it's become much more than he ever dreamed. It's the American People trying to take back their country.

Are you with us??

I don't know what our political leaders are thinking, but they are not hearing the voice of the people. They are not doing what they've been elected to do, and they are pulling our country into a hole that it's going to take a long time to get out of.

I'd Take Her...

This past week has been an up and down week. I normally don't blog often on this blog, because I don't generally have lots to say. I went to the Tea Party and told my husband that I felt so....out of my comfort zone. I'm not one for getting into the lime light when it comes to politics. I don't like to be on the radar, so to speak -- I don't like to get involved, but the government has pushed my involvement.

This morning I read something that pushed my buttons again. Instead of Alaska being proud of their amazing governor, the Democratic members are driding her for going to two special functions -- Right to Life and SMILE.

Her nominee for state attorney general was shot down, and he apparently made questionable remarks that they were quick to jump on. It sounds to me like the Democrats in the state have taken over and are trying to discredit the woman who has the biggest chance of getting the higher office of the country than anyone else ever has.

The Demos are at it again.

Here's the article I read. You make your own decision. But, while I don't have any real gripes with my own governor, I'd take Sarah Palin in a heart beat.
