Is Facebook Too Big To Fail?


Facebook Stock Slide

With an initial public offering of $38.00 a share, a high of $45.25 a share, and a low of $18.75 per share, Facebook’s stock has been as rocky as a soap opera love affair. Today’s trading shows the current price per share is $18.96. However, with this slide, comes the calls for the company’s CEO and majority stock holder Mark Zuckerberg to step down. For some, it’s rather easy to gloat in the downturn of those who they perceive to be “well off” or “rich”. I however marvel in the fact that someone can take what seems to be a simple idea (sharing pictures, ideas, lives), apply the idea to a system that’s already invented (computer, internet), and turn it into a multi-billion dollar company. It really signifies the American dream.

REGISTER TO VOTE, HELP REGISTER OTHERS ALSO TO SEND OBAMA HOME THIS NOVEMBER.

This presidential election is the most important of our life time. Since this is the case, we want the next president to have a landslide win and a mandate from the American people. The only way we can achieve this is to make sure we are registered to vote, and get like-minded friends, colleagues, and family members registered to vote. The website wallbuilders.com/vote/ has a special tool that you can use to check to see if your friends, colleagues, and family are registered, and you can double-check your own registration status. Go there and check quickly! Pledge to get others to register also. Lets send Obama the socialist packing this November!

SUNDAY SERMON SERIES – The Fire Within – Jeremiah 20:9


Many of you that have read articles that I’ve written know that I love to study and write about history. In today’s message I want to take us into the past and look at the answers that we can find to the problems our people face today. For a text today, I want us to look at Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak anymore in His name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut upin my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. In order to understand the context, we need to read the whole chapter, feel free to read more.

20 Now Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who was also chief governor in the house of the Lord, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things. 2 Then Pashur smote Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the Lord. 3 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Pashur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The Lord hath not called thy name Pashur, but Magormissabib. 4 For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will make thee a terror to thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword. 5 Moreover I will deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them, and take them, and carry them to Babylon. 6 And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies. 7 O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me. 8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the Lord was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily. 9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. 10 For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him. 11 But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten. 12 But, O Lord of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause. 13 Sing unto the Lord, praise ye the Lord: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers. 4 Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed. 15 Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad. 16 And let that man be as the cities which the Lord overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide; 17 Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me. 18 Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?

Jeremiah, often referred to as “the weeping prophet”, was mocked and persecuted for preaching God’s word in Israel. He preached against the priests that were in power at that time. He was locked in the stocks for God’s word. Much like John was exiled to the isle of Patmos for the testimony and for the word of God.

It is often spoken today, that Christian folks are supposed to keep their faith to themselves. More specifically, we are told to keep our faith in our churches and out of our government. We need to refute that ideology, it has never worked and it has never ended well. The government, always threatens churches with taking away their 501 (c) (3) status, if they “preach a little to close to home”. Today in America, Christians are being targeted for ridicule, mocking, discounting our view points as, old fashioned, out of touch, dangerous, narrow minded, and hateful. This is propogated mostly by the government’s lap dog, the main stream media. [I think I’ve read about this before, Pilgrims?] I believe our ancestors came here to escape religious persecution. It has certainly become fashionable to be anti-christian. Now, ask yourself how? How has this happened? The government, has hijacked social issues and made them, political issues for personal gain. If it can be sold, it is for sell in Washington D.C. Power, influence, friendship, loyalty, you name it, it’s for sale. All the while, citizens are being sold down the river. So what do we as Christians do? We take them back! The issues are ours, not the government’s to gain power and set policy with. We can get it back. Jesus said: Matthew 23:27 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.” That’s the verse I think of when I see all the beautiful white architechture and think of how corrupt D.C. is. You may ask, are you talking about civil disobediance? Let me answer that by saying this, if you seen a homeless person would you help them, get them a bite to eat, give them your sandwich? Because that is the church’s charter, from God’s mouth to our ears. In Philidelphia, “the city of brotherly love” it is now illegal to feed the homeless. So yes, civil disobedience is a must. (That does not mean destroying public property or the use of violence)  That is a direct infringement by government on the first amendment of the U.S. Contitution. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” In fact, while were on the subject, what transfers these rights to government? Abdication, plain and simple. We the people have abdicated our God given right to self-govern ourselves and given it to the government. Why does the government have a right to attach a number to your existence? (SS#) Why does the government have the right hold in its bank account your retirment? (SS#) Why does the government have the right to know your health information? (Obamacare) Why does the government think they can rule on what is socially acceptable? (Gay marriage) Why does the government believe they can tell us what to eat? (Soda, Trans-fats) So on and so forth. Because we have abdicated it. We gave it away.

Things that we gave away, we can take back. We must start with God and true repentance. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

We need to begin promoting the idea that it is not the government’s place to take care of citizens cradle to grave! We are Americans, we take care of ourselves.  Jesus said: Matthew 22:21… then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”  We need to ask God to heal the divisions that this government uses to gain power over us. We need to ask God to raise up the church back to its rightful station, and return responsibility back to citizens. We have a lot of praying to do. We need, like Jeremiah, to weep for our current state of affairs and ask God to restore us. We need the fire back in our gut! There’s only one way to do that, the same way Jeremiah did, put so many Godly things into you that there’s no way you can keep your mouth shut about Him. Jeremiah said God’s word was like a fire shut up in his bones! We need that today, to share Jesus, unafraid, with authority and power! To tell and show people that God loves them, and He wants to do great and mighty things in their lives! We need to be on fire for God! If we fall, it will be due to Bible illiteracy. American newspaper publisher and abolisionist, Horace Greely (1811-1872) said:“It is impossible to enslave, mentally or socially, a bible-reading people. The principles of the bible are the groundwork of human freedom.” The founder of the Methodist church, John Wesley (1703-1791) said: “Catch on fire and others will love to come and watch you burn”! He also said “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on Earth.” You notice that he said laymen also. Never let’em tell you your just one person, you can’t turn this country around. That’s a lie straight from the pit of hell! God vested in Jesus the salvation of the whole world. To you small groups, the church started with eleven men in the upper room, so don’t let’em tell you that you can’t turn things around. It’s time for revival in the land. Tonight, when you lay down to sleep, say a prayer for our nation and its people, and ask God to set your heart and your mind on fire for Him, ask that you are filled with a new spirit that would drive you to win the lost, share Jesus, and restore the land.

If you don’t know Christ, today is your appointed day to meet him and accept his free gift of salvation. Pilate said, “what shall I do with this Jesus?” Ask yourself today, what should I do with this Jesus, accept or deny? Pilate denied him, and washed his hands of him, what will you do?

This is a wonderful song that helps us see through God’s eyes in our modern day.

Glenn Beck’s Restoring Love – Dallas, Texas – July 28th 2012


Glenn Beck has recently announced that he has chosen a theme song for Restoring Love in Dallas TX on July 28th 2012. The song is named “Hold us together” by Matt Maher. It is an uplifting song with very poignant lyrics. My wife and I initially had signed up for tickets to this event, however the economy is too slow for us to be able to make it there. We had spot number 667 in line for pre-buy tickets. We were able to attend Restoring Honor in Washington D.C. on August 28th, 2010 (which happened to be our 3rd year anniversary since the day we met). Below are some pictures of that event.

Democrats, Dirty Little Secret about Wisconsin Public Unions


What would you say if I told you, a tiny, little, explosive secret existed in Wisconsin? Nothing more than a whisper and it was a known secret among some media types, but, almost everyone in the state and national media, ignores the little known secret. They ignore it, because it is a very damning secret that is absolutely true and can be verified, the Public Union (ASFCME) membership in Wisconsin has dropped 54% over the last year. 54% over the last year, I’ll say it again. After Gov. Scott Walkers new collective bargaining law went into effect, people have defected the public union. A part of the law that was passed, stopped forced union dues. After the people had the choice whether to continue paying dues and be a union member, or continue paying and being a member, the majority of them quit the union and its confiscatory dues. This news broke locally in Wisconsin three full days ago. This is a terrible blow to the Democratic money laundering machine! And with fewer members, that translates to less cash to spend on Obama’s Hope and Change campaign, oops, I’m sorry, he’s already sold that sham once, no money for Forward. It is a national disgrace that the media has largely ignored this story. I think most would agree with me, this is important news.

Can you imagine if this information was detrimental to Conservatives or Republicans? You couldn’t have fit another reporter into the state of Wisconsin without blowing out its southern border. Wisconsin would have been crawling with press, just licking their chops, waiting to take a bite out of a Conservative.

As we all know, the press only exists on the internet and a few other outlets. I actually contend, that the Citizen Blogger or the Citizen Journalist is the last line of defense against Government tyranny over the people. I can back up this claim with facts and they are PIPA, SOPA, and CISPA. I submit to you that these pieces of legislation was directed at sites like ours, and wordpress, blospot, and some news websites that act as news aggregate sites, such as Drudge Report, and a few others. After all, Drudge is just a blog with a lot of news links gathered on one site. See, these laws that the Congress tried to pass, would make it illegal to take a link from a website and place it on your site, or use a video like I have done at the top of this article. That’s right, you could have been indicted for sharing a picture on your blog, or sharing a file, or a video if you were not the owner. This would have opened up a huge door for the Federal Government to pick and choose who would have the freedom of speech. So I say God Bless the Citizen Journalist. Keep pushing back!

There is a massive shift in public opinion in where people consume their news. There is a lot of people who are just shutting off the evening news and following blogs run by fellow citizens, people trust their neighbors more than the CBS evening news. Cnn’s ratings have hit a 20 year slump for two months in a row now, and subscribership is way down for newspapers in our country. Why do you suppose that is? I contend it’s because people are sick and tired of being lied to! People are sick and tired of watching a president that seems more like a foreign dictator, that hates our country and runs around apologizing for us, when we’re unapologetic by the way. The citizenry is fed up! Fed up with big government that begets more government.

Tonight is a momentous evening. Gov. Scott Walker is getting ready to spank Tom Berrett in his recall election by maybe as much as 17-20 percentage points, which is much like Reagan pouring that 55 gallon drum of Whupp Ass on Jimmy Carter and carrying 44 of 50 states in ’80. Walker has delivered on the things he campaigned on, fiscal responsibility, he balanced the budget. Leadership, he certainly has been as steadfast as a stone in the face of demonization, and an all out war on him and his brand of conservative politics. He has not wavered! If this man wins, you may have seen the end of public sector unions and it will be considered a referendum on Obama’s sorry leadership!

Tomorrow, find a long haired, dope smoking, maggot infested hippy, and tell them in no uncertain terms, THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!!!

Target Comes Out of the Closet for Gay Marriage


This photo provided by Target Corp. shows one of the T-shirts being sold to raise money for a group working to defeat a gay marriage constitutional ban in Minnesota.

Target Corporation, based in Minnesota has thrown its hat into the gay ‘marriage’ debate. They have begun selling t-shirts to support a LGBT activist group in their home state to help raise money to combat a gay ‘marriage’ amendment banning the act. Much like amendment 1 that just passed in North Carolina, defining marriage as legal union between one man and one woman, and stating that this would be the only type of marriage that would be recognized in the state of North Carolina.

The t-shirts will raise up to $120,000.00 for the Family Equality Council, of Washington. They will be pumping the money into the initiative that will combat the passage of the constitutional amendment. You may recall Target, just two years ago took a bashing by gay rights groups for donating $150,000 to then Republican candidate for Governor of Minnesota, Tom Emmer.

The spokesperson for Minnesota for Marriage, Chuck Darrell said, “Target is attacking traditional marriage, which is an incredibly misguided thing for them to have done”. There are four different designs available. The t-shirt pictured above was designed by Gwen Steffani, of the once upon a time pop group “No Doubt”. You will note, that on the t-shirt are two things that originate with God, the sign of the rainbow and the word love. The Holy Bible, in Genesis  9:13 states, that God did set his bow in the clouds as a token of the covenant that God made between Him and the Earth, that He would not destroy it again with a flood. The Bible also says that God is love in 1st John 4:8 He that loveth not,knoweth not God; for God is love.

So if were to understand this correctly. Two years ago it was politically incorrect to give $150,000 to a pro business Republican candidate. But two years later it’s perfectly ok to have the same retailer sell your t-shirts to support your sociopolitical cause?

This has the “Rev.” Jesse Jackson written all over it. Even if he had nothing to do with it. It looks like Jackson because this is how his organisation Rainbow Push works. Threaten a picket, boycott or a public media smear campaign, and then when they buckle and give in, now you make them accept and support your initiatives.

I have never been one for boycotts. But, what I am for is a calm quiet vote with our dollars. You see, Ronald Reagan said it best, “If you don’t like the policies where you are, you can vote with your feet”. What he meant was if your state is screwed up, you can move to a better one. If you’re a frequent Target shopper, you have the choice to vote with your dollar. If this move by Target against over 5000 years of God sanctioned marriage between a man and a woman upsets you, you can decide to put your money into a store that does agree with your values and principles.

Now for those who would find fault with this article, and be angered that I would write such things. Your anger is misplaced. You are angered with a Holy God, not me. This is America, you have every right to your opinion, just as I do mine and I welcome your comments.

Obama’s Sycophant, Paul Krugman


sycophant

(sic-o-fant) (NOUN)

A sycophant is a person who tries to gain attention by flattering wealthy or influential people.

A self-serving flatterer, a person who fawns over another.

An example of a sycophant is someone who agrees with everything his boss says and who brings his boss gifts once a month.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Paul Krugman, must have received his Nobel Prize the same way Obama did, by doing absolutely nothing of merit. I understand politics and political motivations, however, Krugmans latest statement is a little more over the top than usual. (Trying to cover Obama’s Tail on Solyndra and the like). The reason our nation is hurtling toward DEBT-MAGEDDON is Obama subscribes to this keynesian economic model that Krugman and so many other leftists follow. Simply put, keynesian economics calls for massive amounts of spending to jumpstart faltering job markets and the overall market. The theory is, if the economy slows down (recession = two or more quarters of negative growth in GDP) you spend more money to drive the economy back up, making the pie larger in a sense. The problem in the theory, among many, is in alignment with the words of Margaret Thatcher, she said, “the only problem with socialism is, eventually you run out of other people’s money”. We have not a dime to spend to bolster or boost our economy, in fact as I have written about many times in the past with unfunded liabilities and the national debt combined we are -70 to -100 Trillion dollars in debt. Our nations economic issues are due to people like Krugman speaking glowingly regarding this ideology. Krugman comes out and says “this is ridiculous, we’re talking like a billion dollars is a lot of money or something.” YES Paul! A billion dollars is still a lot of money! I can deny gravity all day long, but, if I deny it under the wrong circumstances, gravity will kill me. It’s like they live in an alternate universe where sound fiscal policy doesn’t even exist. We are well past the point of no return im afraid, concerning our debt problem. I would liken their spending to that of drunken sailors, but I don’t want to offend the sailors.  Our great great great grand children will still be paying on this millstone around our neck, if we are still a nation when their alive. No nation in the history of the world has ran up debt like we have and survived to tell about it. Europe is ready to shake apart and kill the Euro Zone and the currency. Almost every developed nation on the planet is running massive debts. There are a lot of markets already hinting that a sharp decline is in the near future. And the economic terrorist himself, George Soros, has now signaled that the Euro has 3 months tops before it collapses. Think of the ramifications of that for a moment.

Paul Krugman, history will judge you as an ignorant wretch who professed himself to be wise, while all along you were singing the propagandist song for Obama while he fiddled as America burned. May history forget that you were ever called my countryman.

Robert E. Stage Jr.
