The New Monsterous Regiment of Women.

I've noticed that there has been a good bit of controversy within the circle of Homeschool bloggers recently over whether to accept or reject McCain's new VP Sarah Palin. I fail to see her appeal to Evangelicals.

I think that the Conservatives need to be looking to fellow Conservatives from Alaska and seeking their opinion on Palin, someone I would recommend reading is Mr. Jerad from AK, who has done several terrific blog posts on Palin (I agree 100 percent with him), Jerad has campaigned AGAINST Palin in the past and is helping in the fight against her now.

I would also recommend this sermon (which I'm sure all of you have heard, but just in case you haven't) by Dr. Morecraft, my new favorite out of all of his great lectures.





Something else I really recommend is this video by Dr. Voddie Baucham in which he debates Margaret Feinberg.
One of the highlights in this video is when he rebukes her for "Playing fast and loose with the Text", good stuff ;).

Again, I'm sure you've read this but I have to put it out here, this is one of the most powerful articles that I've read, by Mr. Geoffrey Botkin entitled "The Miraculous Sanctification of the Republican Party".

I find it disgusting the way most male conservatives are acting about this, I've talked to grown men who would not let Palin preach at their church, yet are so ready to declare her their new Über Führer. To throw a woman onto the Front lines of what is a Spiritual War, "For we fight not against flesh and blood", this is not manliness but effeminacy.

To me, it conjures up visions of a mob chanting "Jump, Jump!" to a confused woman, perched on the edge of a precipice.

A couple of weeks ago I was talking to a fellow homeschooler from scouts about politics, we started off by chatting about my meeting former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, he said "WOW I didn't know he was in town, by the way ain't it great that Palin got the VP?", this same guy used to hate McCain, but since he is now the Republican nominee he thinks that McCain can do no wrong.

So I said "No, are you kidding? Not only is she not as conservative as she is being portrayed, but she's a WOMAN" so he replied "Well maybe it's not the best thing, but it's better than Obama".


But is it better than Obama?

Republicans were soooo worried about Ron Paul splitting the ticket even though they agreed with most of what he said, so most of them went for Huckabee or Romney, Ive already done a post on Huckabee, so if you will allow me to go on a short rant....

I COULD NOT vote in any circumstance for Mitt Romney, not only because of his extremely liberal stance on a lot of things, but because he was a member of a cult that denies the Deity of CHRIST, a cult of wolves in sheep's clothing, a cult that is nothing more than an 19th century Branch Davidian.

Romney is the one who split the vote! Because of a lot of Christians who were too pessimistic, scared and weak to vote for the right person, the Biblical candidate is now out and we (supposedly) have to choose between evil and tyranny.

Maybe if Obama did become president the Christians would realize the cost of their stupidity, then we might band together in 2012 and win a victory for America, Christendom and even the World. A new revolution, a revolution without revising our government, but merely seeking to uphold the revolutionary idea that it is "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's the "change" I'm talking about.

It looks like it won't be long before the government starts exercising it's might over us, and the Christians are the ones who brought it on, by settling with the lesser of the evils, and because they did not band together with the Joshuas and Calebs who were ready to posses the land the way the LORD wanted them to.

God Bless,

Full Auto

After reading Son3's post about whether or not Fully Automatic guns should be legal, illegal or if the states decide, I did a wee bit of searching.

And I found....

THIS!!

Now I just have to get some more mula, then I can get a "Rootie-tootie aim and shootie!".

Never Forget 9/11 or our Soldiers


On this, the 7th anniversary of the cowardly Islamo-facist attacks on the WTC, I thought I would do a post in honor of those who died in the attack, and to our troops who have been forced to fight an uncostitutional war.

Oh how do you do, young Willy McBride
Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside
And rest for a while in the warm summer sun
I've been walking all day, and I'm nearly done



And I see by your gravestone you were only nineteen
When you joined the great falling in 1916
Well I hope you died quick
And I hope you died clean or Willy McBride,
was is it a slow and sad scene?

Did they beat the drums slowly
Did they play the fife lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
Did the band play the last post and chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest



And did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind
In some loyal heart is your memory enshrined
And though you died back in 1916
To that loyal heart you're forever nineteen

Or are you a stranger without even a name,
Forever enshrined behind some old glass pane
In an old photograph torn, tattered, and stained
And faded to yellow in a brown leather fame

Did they beat the drums slowly
Did they play the fife lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
Did the band play the last post and chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest


The sun shining down on these green fields of France
The warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance
The trenches have vanished long under the plow
No gas, no barbed wire, no guns firing now

But here in this graveyard that's still no mans land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
And a whole generation who were butchered like lambs

Did they beat the drums slowly
Did they play the fife lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
Did the band play the last post and chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest

And I can't help but wonder oh Willy McBride
Do all those who lie here know why they died
Did you really believe them when they told you the cause
Did you really believe that this war would end wars

Well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
The killing and dying was it all done in vain?
For Willy McBride, it all happened again
And again, and again, and again, and again

Did they beat the drums slowly
Did they play the fife lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
Did the band play the last post and chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest?

Scotland's Heroes

Hi Ya'll!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile, we've had a very busy month.

Last Thursday we went to the Circa History Guild in Atlanta to listen to a couple of lectures by Dr. Joseph Morecraft and Mr. Bill Potter on the Military history of Scotland and the Reformation in Scotland.
We successfully got everybody into the van, then set off for Atlanta, the city where it's always rush-hour.

After reaching said city we promptly got stuck in a traffic jam, the first of three we would encounter that day. By the time we got to the Circa History Guild we were 20 minutes late, most of you who have a rather large family like us know how big a deal it is when 9 people show up simultaneously, thankfully though they had plenty of room for us.
It turns out that they had started later then they were supposed to, so we got to hear most of Mr. Potter's very interesting lecture on the Military History of Scotland, after it was over there was a brief break during which my family got to meet him (my sisters immediately recognized him as "The voice of Elsie Dinsmore"). I asked him if it was alright to film Dr. Morecraft, which he said was fine, so I set up my camera while Mom and Dad talked to some like-minded folks we had met that evening.
Dr. Morecraft's lecture was really good as well, I filmed most of it and I'm hoping to be able to fix the sound a bit before posting (I had to record with a mic attached to my camera, thus recording echos, footsteps etc.).
Afterwards I got to meet and talk to Dr. Morecraft about a few things, it was really great to meet him in person after listening to his lectures.

After that we began our journey back home which turned out to be uneventfully.
Unfortunately, our regular camera was "indisposed' and I didn't get any stills for this post, but fear not! I will upload the film that I have of the evening ASAP, but it will probably just be various parts of the message opposed to the whole thing (which was about 45 minutes long).

God Bless!
