ANNA RANDANNA RAND ‏@OBAMA_CZAR – Biden talked about Obama taking action. “As the president said, if you’re actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking.”

@OBAMA_CZAR  Just think of how many lives he would have saved if maybe he hadn’t shipped an assload of guns to the Mexican cartel?

2012 – You’re Now Dead To Me – Part One – Forewarned is Not Forearmed

2012 – You’re Now Dead To Me… is about my early 2012 blogs – a time when I imagined sanity still ruled the earth.  I blogged a lot about stuff hoping reason would or could prevail.  Nope!

The Real Middle Class?  Invisible. The mainstream media and the politicians can’t see us from where they’re sitting.

Getting Religion – People only know you’re a Christian by your Facebook.”

What does “shovel ready” really mean to a small business owner?  It means building a business from the ground up!

What were you thinking?!

What were you thinking?!

Lick of Sense! I wish we could all afford to be like Newt Gingrich.  Gingrich is obviously someone who is used to getting what he wants.  If he doesn’t get it, he throws a childlike tirade.

Alien Nation a.k.a., The Obamacare Nation, Alien, the movie was all about spreading spores and breeding aliens to prey on mankind, should the spores reach our planet.  Obamacare and its spores are already here.

Don’t hold your breath, but call me maybe, I have more rants in 2012.  I plan on summarizing them just for you, but I’m busy right now, sleeping.

Obama Christened “Lord and Savior” Great Response on Twitter, Some of My Favorite Tweets

You can watch the video of Jamie Foxx at the SoulTrain 2012 Awards calling Obama his “Lord and Savior.” Twitter went crazy with the hashtag, #IfObamaWasJesus.  Here are some of my favorite tweets:

Getting Religion…

Stating the obvious, we know that wearing religion on your sleeve can be dangerous.  Which brings me to one cogent expression from this one young man’s video below; he professes that “people only know you’re a Christian by your Facebook.”  

I have experienced their religion first-hand.  If you’re running late and you think finding a seat on a Southwest flight is difficult, try getting to a religious service late.  If you have ever been slow to leave after services, you have been run over by the stampede leaving church or cutoff leaving the parking lot.   

I guess it’s still better than being in the Middle East where you could be blown up by a suicide bomber or a roadside bomb.  Thank God no one has been nuked lately. 

Don’t get me wrong.  Many who profess their faith in God are truly genuine.  That is why many of us have become instant fans of the Denver Broncos…well Tim Tebow, anyway.  In fact, there does seem to be the hand of God in some of his touchdown throws.  God help the rest of us!  

To my point, Christians and Muslims have killed millions in the name of God or Allah, but as Jesus was our Savior, He never meant for any of this to happen.  He wasn’t a “Christian” in religious man-made terms.  He was the first Christian,  He was a true gift from God , the Son of God.  His words were meant to heal not to divide.  He sacrificed himself and died on the cross for all humankind. 

I’m not a heretic.  I’m not preaching.  If I was, I’d be preaching to the choir.  This is a lesson.  This is a lesson from the heart.  We need to listen. —> Getting Religion

He says, “Just because you call somebody blind doesn’t mean you have vision.”

We have been warned.  The experts say our next great threat is ourselves, right here in America. It’s now about you and me.  It’s now more important than ever to follow the true meaning of Christ.

We already know we live shoulder to shoulder, possibly arm in arm, with the next domestic terrorist.  Whether he or she is on the side of one religious sect or another, it matters far less than the lives that will be lost.  We just need to stop, listen and learn from Him.

The Greatest Commandment: Love God and Your Neighbor

Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Be a Servant to Others

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

So when you’re on the internet, which is a miracle in itself, to think Al Gore invented it; and you come across an amazing YouTube video, it’s no wonder you will find someone you can relate to and another who says, “hmmm.” 

I hope you have labored with me up to this point because if you haven’t seen and heard it, this young man’s poem and video, YouTube Video —->Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word, it has great insight on man-made religion vs. the true love of God.

In his own words, A poem I wrote to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At it’s core Jesus’ gospel and the good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth. Religion either ends in pride or despair.  Pride because you make a list and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you can’t do your own list of rules and feel “not good enough” for God. With Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you, you don’t represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God!”  Jefferson Bethke

Let’s see if this young man can keep his perspective, like Tebow, without becoming carried away with his newfound man-made worship and adoration. 

Regardless, his message is compelling.  I have watched and listened to this video several times, not because I am in danger of being left without a seat on a plane or I fear getting run over in a stampede.  I have watched and listened because it has struck a chord… 

Maybe there’s hope for our young people.  Maybe they will navigate their way out of this dust storm they have inherited from us.  Maybe those of us older and portended to be wiser, set in our ways; maybe, just maybe, we will follow.

Twitter me free! Lead with words!

 Are Twitter and Facebook  freedom personified!?

Without a doubt face time is far more effective, whenever possible,  in personal relationships but let’s face it, not effective when your dodging bullets (hence the double entendre on lead) even when your message is compelling and needs to go viral.

No measure, including national media in any form, is more effective than a simple post or tweet.

Has social media done what shock and awe, subterfuge and sanctions cannot do?  Free the oppressed?

The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don’t have to waste your time voting.  – Charles Bukowski
You think!?  I think voting means less lead.  Fewer bomb makers. I like a lottery when it comes to choosing my lawmakers, not a noose.
As for religious freedom?  I’m still debating this topic with my Mom.
Twitter and Facebook are ubiquitous.  Are they the true freedom fighters, persona non grata, going to topple mid-eastern dictators?
Lead with words!
A double entendre that would be rendered empty without the help of real life martyrs, real life freedom fighters.  Brave, passionate people.  Let’s do what we can to help them “live” not “die” for freedom.  Let’s show our support and tweet and Facebook (post) a message now to all your fans and friends, “Live free!” to get the message out to our Mid-eastern and African neighbors who live under oppressive dictators.
Here at home, let’s put a face on freedom.  Tweet and Facebook our message.

Live Free, Not Die!
