Moving on


I have decided to change course a bit. For the last several years, I have been writing four different blogs. I have enjoyed it and it has been fun, but it is extremely difficult to keep up with all four. 

I have decided to consolidate three into one. 

This blog will close on October 31,2015.

You will be able to follow me at http://www.floridahoosier.com. 

I hope to see you there, it’s been fun and I’ll see you at: http://www.Floridahoosier.com.

If you have an interest in the paranormal esoteric side of life I have a blog at, http://www.manymanyworlds.com, that you may have an interest in.

Thanks again:

Each generation from the beginning of our country has contributed to what our country has become. By the same token, no one is perfect. Consequently, each generation has done and will continue to perform acts that it would have been better if some other course of action was taken.
The baby boomers have contributed much and have been blamed for the decline of America. What is the true story?

What Would the Founding Fathers Do?


Sell Art Online

I have often heard it said by  various individuals they hoped if there was such a  thing as reincarnation, that the founding fathers would come back and save us from ourselves.

They did such a good job forming our country many think they should come back and straighten out the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. .

What would you do if you were a founding father?

Would you come back to do it all again? Would you suffer through the hardships of Valley Forge, or endure the long hours spent hammering out a constitution and Bill of Rights that no one seems to care about anymore?

Would you  spend your fortunes, risk losing everything you have, subject your families to certain death and poverty as they once did?

Not me, if I had gone through what they did and sacrificed what they did, I would say, “no way Jose”.

I did it once, now it is your turn. I did my part, if you want freedom, it is your turn to step up to the plate and fight for it like we did. I would tell them what my parents told me when I messed up. “You were smart enough to get into this mess, I’m sure you are smart enough to get yourself out of it”

I’ll be on the beach in Bimini, send me an email, I’ll be willing to give advice if you want it. But you have to do it yourself.

Be Who You Really Are


Art Prints

It’s much easier to not know things sometimes.

Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.

I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me.

I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people.

You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love.

And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. You just can’t. You have to do things.

I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is.

Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there.

And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

America: an Exceptional Nation


Photography Prints

Written By: Gary Wonning

Several years ago, I had the opportunity to visit Australia and spend several weeks in the outback.

While visiting Alice Springs, the occasion arose to visit Ayres Rock or Uluru, a sacred aboriginal monolith located near the center of the country, about a five-hour drive from Alice.

Riding on a bus with other tourists from various countries around the world, I found myself seated next to a young lady from Switzerland. 

As is always the case, the conversation always begins  by asking each other where they are from.

When she discovered I was from the states, she asked me what I was doing in Australia.  She said it in such a way it almost sounded rude, we had only just met, so I asked her why she would ask me such a question. 

She replied that she didn’t understand why anyone would ever want to leave the United States, we had everything a person could ask for. Beautiful scenery, varied climates, freedom, there was something in America for everyone, regardless of their wants or desires. 

She was engaged to an Air Force Cadet and couldn’t wait to come to the United states to visit him in Colorado and eventually move here. 

Obviously, this got me to thinking, I had never thought of my country like that before. With all the anti-American rhetoric out there, it was refreshing to find someone that had something good to say about our country. 

Since then I have had several opportunities to find people that feel the same way. Not everyone one hates Americans like the left wing politicians and mainstream media would like you to believe. In fact, most people know and respect who we are and how over the years America has done much for the rest of the world.

As a country, we don’t always do the right thing, we aren’t perfect. No one is, but we do things right more often than anyone else does. If we do mess up, sooner or later we will make it right and correct our errors. 

We are an exceptional country and an exceptional people, not because we are better or more evolved than anyone else, but we are exceptional because our country provides opportunities and advantages for people found nowhere else in the world. 

Our Constitution and Bill of Rights provide for that. All we need do is follow the directions laid out before us by our founding fathers.

The Separation of Church and State


 

Sell Art Online

Many believe the separation of church and state is guaranteed in the constitution. If it’s in there, I haven’t found it.

But I have read the Declaration of Independence several times. The first few paragraphs of that sacred document I have posted below. Reading those lines, it becomes evident the founding fathers had no such thought to abandon our creator.  It specifically states our rights come from God, not government. There isn’t any other way to interpret it.

It clearly states the government works for us, we don’t work for them. At least that is the way  our government was designed.

The first few paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

From that statement, there can be no doubt as to how our founders felt.

I agree, we must keep politics out of religion, but we need God, not religion, in politics. If one professes a belief in God, it doesn’t mean they are promoting a religion. I believe generic prayers are fine, where the term “Heavenly Father”, “God”, “Creator” or something similar is used. Out of respect for other religions, Jesus or Allah or some other personality should not be used. 

Remember back in the day when politicians weren’t afraid to express their belief in God. The world wasn’t perfect, but it was a whole lot better place to live than today.

That was a day when God was important in people’s daily lives, a day when almost all government employees and elected officials were former military, they had a sense of duty and obligation, much of that has been lost. In fact, if you weren’t former military, your chances of getting a civil service job were slim.

People who forget or abandon God, at some time, will pay the consequences.

Communism on the Installment Plan


An extremely good article on why we can’t coexist with the left. This writer is corect.

WHY THERE CAN BE NO COEXISTENCE WITH THE LEFT

Exclusive: Erik Rush advises liberty-lovers to adopt same goal as their adversaries

Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/why-there-can-be-no-coexistence-with-the-left/#YC1t9MGWPbX4hWKR.99

Assuming they can take a break from bitterly clinging to their guns and religion for a few minutes, I’m going to set a bona fide goal for those liberty-loving Americans out there with a passion for our founding principles and the Constitution. What may surprise some in that camp is that it’s the very same goal toward which those on the political left strive.

At first blush, some of these patriots – perhaps many – will find this goal rhetorically indelicate, if not undemocratic, or even (dare I say it?) – “extreme.”

By the time they’re done reading this, however, I would hope that they perceive the dangerous folly in such thinking.

The goal is simple, and it is as follows: We must utterly vanquish the political opponents we currently face. One can see why I said it’s identical to the ultimate goal of the left, and why they never articulate it openly. While they espouse love of country, liberty, the democratic process and say they believe we have as much of a right to our ideals and beliefs as they do theirs, these are patent deceptions.

Time and again, their actions make it abundantly clear that they intend to eradicate our ideals and beliefs if at all possible.

So, as contrary to our model of government and collective conscience as this may sound, utterly neutralizing the left (completely disenfranchising those who ascribe to leftist doctrine and dismantling all of their established political, cultural and legal constructs) is an imperative because they never had any intention of coexisting with those of differing ideologies.

A key difference between us and the political left is that we’ve always been here, but they have not. What I mean by this is that throughout the history of our nation, the intentions of the governed and those who rose to govern were fairly closely aligned. There were instances of major divergence – such as those who wound up at odds over slavery or the right of women to vote – but principally, we had somewhat differing means to generally the same ends.

Though the left-right paradigm with which contemporary Americans were raised has come to mean less and less (because so many politicians advance leftist policies regardless of political party), we do need to bear in mind that it is a very recent political model.

The reason politicians have perpetuated the observance of this left-right archetype in recent years is because it became eminently useful to them in manipulating the electorate – and this means big-government closet socialists like many prominent Republicans have demonstrated themselves to be, as well as outright communists like Barack Obama and his co-conspirators.

The core truth is that the ideology, motives and methods of the left are manifestly evil, and always have been.

I don’t know if I coined the phrase in relation to liberalism being “communism on the installment plan,” but I don’t know of anyone else who uses it. Whoever gets the credit, I believe it is an accurate statement because not only has liberalism itself changed incrementally over the last several decades, it has also managed to subvert those occupying other nodes along the political continuum.

This is because liberalism (as opposed to early 20th-century progressivism) has always been driven by hardcore communists. Because they are intrinsically diabolical, they misrepresent their intentions, then foment division, hatred and civil unrest. Finally, they institutionalize injustice, oppressing and terrorizing the governed, illegally appropriating the fruits of their labors and making atrocity commonplace.

This is why in 1983, President Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as an “evil empire.” It wasn’t a case of baseless name-calling.

With the end of the Cold War, many Americans presumed that the struggle against communism was over. I’m not sure why, since potent communistic influences remained in the world. In any event, I seriously doubt that in the early 1990s many conservatives could have imagined a Marxist-Leninist cabal calling the shots in our nation’s capital less than 20 years hence.

The empirical evidence demonstrates that liberalism inevitably morphs into communism (oligarchical collectivist totalitarianism). Whether it comes about quickly through revolution or slowly through attrition doesn’t matter much in the end.

Thus, liberalism is fundamentally just as malignant as communism – which we should have been able to ascertain, given that its effects over the last 50 years included increasing moral ambivalence, escalating levels of corruption in government and business sectors, class warfare, dissolution of the family (including high rates of divorce and illegitimate births), loss of reverence for the sanctity of life, rampant drug use, antipathy for the nation itself and transposition of the very concepts of good and evil.

And those only represent the evidence of America’s domestic deterioration.

I hope this has sufficiently illustrated that the liberal-embryonic-communist wholesale destroyers of everything good and decent have not always been among us. Those who follow evil dictates have always been among us, but never before in America have we seen a faction bent on pernicious societal nihilism achieve enduring influence and political power.

Those who are generally peaceful, industrious and generous, who would prefer to mind their own business as they pursue life, liberty and happiness have always been here. Actually, they are most people. Knowledge of this truth is what motivated our nation’s founders to so inextricably enshrine the concepts of individual liberty and Natural Law into its founding documents.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

Men Need to Act Like Men


Art Prints

Over the last several decades, the feminist movement has done everything  in their power to minimize  men.

Men have come under attack from every corner, and as a result many believe men are no longer necessary.

As a result men have been hesitant to act like men. Many no longer want to get married or be committed to a long term relationship. Why should they?

Many women only want a child so they can have something to replace their dolls they have outgrown, and many don’t want anyone to have control over their child but themselves. They pass out sex like candy at an easter parade, so what incentive is there for a man to want to get married?

Many women have become so independent  they deem men an inconvenience. Many no longer value a man’s influence and guidance.

Men have been encouraged to act more like women and abandon their masculine  qualities.

Then when they do  women complain there are no real men around for them to marry so they can be taken care of, while all the time boasting they are independent  and don’t need anyone to take care of them.

News flash you can’t have it both ways.

Which way do you want it?

The sad part is most women never wanted equality where they were forced to help make a family living. But for many years being a stay at home mother was looked down upon and to be a stay at home mom brought scorn from the media, politicians, and others.

Like many other groups in our society no one spoke up and now many women and men are leading a life they didn’t want.

Many desire the traditional life but for some, that possibility has all but evaporated. Our standard of living has been raised so much that many now find it necessary to work to make ends meet.

For this to change men and women need to act like men and women. If you want to have a career fine, but don’t forget being a woman, wife, and mother  is one of the most important jobs in the world. Don’t get hung up on an illustrious career when that isn’t what you want just because someone thinks that is what you should do.

Don’t be swayed by those in our society who only want to destroy our way of life and what is important. Many times there are things much more important than a career.
