Mise Mheiriceá

After hearing of the victory that Obama received this morning, I thought "well, at least we'll have 2010 and 2012" but then I thought "that means we have to put up with this dictator's wants and wishes for four more years".

We may come under physical attack from this man, he has already stated that he wants to havethe equivalent of the brown shirts policing our streets.

I reminds me of the poem The Rebel by Padraig (Patrick) Henry Pearse, one of the key men in the Irish Rebellion of 1916 who ended up giving his life for his country.

I am come of the seed of the people, the people that sorrow;
Who have no treasure but hope,
No riches laid up but a memory of an ancient glory.
My mother bore me in bondage, in bondage my mother was born,
I am of the blood of serfs;
The children with whom I have played,
The men and women with whom I have eaten,
Have had rulers over them,
Have been under the lash of tyrants, and though gentle, have served churls.

The hands that have touched mine, the dear hands whose touch is familiar to me
Have worn shameful manacles, have been bitten at the wrist by manacles,
have grown hard with the manacles and the task-work of strangers.
I am flesh of the flesh of these lowly, I am bone of their bone.

I that have never submitted;
I that have a soul greater than the souls of my people’s rulers,
I that have vision and bravery, and the gift of fiery speech,
I that have spoken with The Most High God Who rules on the top of His Holy Hill.

And because I am of the people, I understand the people,
I am sorrowful with their sorrow, I am hungry with their desire;
My heart is heavy with the grief of mothers,
My eyes have been wet with the tears of children,
I have yearned with old wistful men,
And laughed and fought with young men;

Their shame is my shame, and I have reddened for it.
Reddened for that they have gone in want, while others have been full,
Reddened for that they have walked in fear of lawyers and their jailers.
With their Writs of Summons and their handcuffs,
Men mean and cruel.

I could have borne stripes on my body
Rather than this shame of my people.

And now I speak, being full of vision:
I speak to my people, and I speak in my people’s name to
The rulers of my people:
I say to my people that they are a great people,
That they are august despite their chains.
That they are greater than those that hold them
And stronger and purer,

That they have but need of courage,
and to call on the name of their God,
God the forgiving,
The Dear God who loves his people
For whom he died naked, suffering shame.

And I say to my people’s masters:
Beware of the thing that is coming! Beware of the risen people!

Who shall not take the chains that ye would give.

Did ye think to conquer the people, or that your will is stronger than law,
And men’s desire to be free?
We will try it out with you,
Ye that have harried and held,
Ye that have bullied and bribed.
Tyrants, hypocrites, liars!
God Bless,

Good post!

My head is still buzzing with the implications of all of this.

About the brown shirts: I'm fairly certain he wants it to be mandatory, but the 13th Amendment bars mandatory servitude.

(What am I saying, he doesn't care about the Constitution!)

Keep your powder dry!

Mike said...

Mine as well!

After I read your post back in July I did some research and I found a video on youtube of Obama entitled "Obama calls for civilian paramilitary force" where he states,

"We can not continue to rely only on our military in order to achive the national security objectives that we've set.
We've gotta have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."

(What am I saying, he doesn't care about the Constitution!)

You're right, I think that there are way to few politicians do.

God Bless,

I was not really surprised that Obama was elected. I think I am still in a daze.

Oh, and I like the music playing thingy on your blog, I'll have to add some of the songs to my "Purchase from iTunes" list. :-)

Mike said...

I was kinda in a daze as well, things just seem to be getting stranger.
I heard Glenn Beck this morning saying that we should support Obama because "he is our president", he can have him.

Thanks! I really enjoy Celtic music.

God Bless,

I m also in a daze, although on the evening of 11/4/2008 my mom asked who we each thought would win, and I answered Obama, I kind of thought McCain would win, hopefully Christens will wake up now that the greater of two evils has won.

RGM said...

I just found your blog, Keep up the good work. I think that Obama winning the election could be both good and bad, on the good hand it might be the last straw to some people, and cause them to finally "abjure the realm" at the federal level and turn them back to God, their families, and their communities. However, on the bad hand it could be NAZI Germany all over again. Either way, the Bible says that all things work together to good for his elect, and we should keep that in mind for comfort in these dark days.
Once again, I like the blog, and I linked it to mine. God Bless.

Deo Vindice.

Where do you Confederate ancestors hail from? I noticed your SCV logo.

Stephen G:
I know what you mean, I expected it near the end, but before then I thought that someone as stupid and Marxistic as Obama would never win.

Now is the time for the Lord's chosen to humble themselves before Him and ask for forgivness and wisdom as to how to deal with the next 2 to 4 years.

The Confederate side of my family (which also happens to be my Welsh side) comes from Wilcox County GA, My Great... Grandad Micahjah had 7 sons, all of who fought in the the 2nd War for American Independence, only 3 survived.

To quote the song Men of Harlech "Welshmen never yield":).

BTW, would you happen to be FloridaCracker from the JT400 forum? (You don't have to answer this if you don't want to).

Stephen G:
I hope to get something up on my other blogs very soon.

Thank you both for linking to me and for the comments!

God Bless,

Wow.. I'm sitting here reading your posts and the comments left by you and friends, and I'm sorry to say this, but you guys do not sound like Christians! You are not reflected Christ in the way you talk! It makes me sad.. and some of the things you are saying make me somewhat angry. Why are Christians so judgemental? Was Jesus? So why are Christians? What people say about Christians being the main reason there are so many atheists.. I'm starting to see the truth in that opinion...

Mike said...


If you will tell me what has so offended you I will try to help you understand.

"I expected it before the end, but before then I thought that someone as stupid and Marxistic as Obama whould never win."

"Not only is she not as conservative as she is being portrayed, but she's a WOMAN"

"it just goes to show how stupid evolutionists are."

Now, you may think I am a liberal, an evolutionist, and a feminist, but I'm not. My family is very conservative, I know that evolution is COMPLETELY wrong, and I SO didn't want Obama to win this election. That doesn't mean that I don't still have to treat all those things as Christ would.

Obama IS going to be our president, and we are to respect him.

Evolutionists may be wrong, but that doesn't mean we, as Christians, should treat them badly, or call them stupid just because they are deceived about something. You are too I'm sure.

The last thing, the thing about women, that just really bothers me. Deborah was a judge, and yes, I watched that video, but I didn't agree. Does the Bible say that Israel was doing something bad by Deborah being a judge? To my knowledge is doesn't. I do not believe that women are expected to sit back and do nothing. As far as I can see, Jesus treated and spoke to women as his equals. Two women were the first to know he had risen. Esther saved her people. Ruth gave up her whole life to follow God. Rahab, although she lived in an evil society, trusted God. There are SO many stories of the things women did in the Bible. People just take that one verse, that I do not belive means what people say it means, and do not look at the rest of the Bible...

Sorry if I sounded rude before. I don't mean too. I have just been upset lately about the things I read that Christian people are saying. Plus I'm really tired and sick.. that might have something to do with it. :P

From Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary
STUPID: very dull; insensible; senseless; wanting in understanding; heavy; sluggish.
"Oh that men should be so stupid grown, as to forsake The Living God."

I've heard this opinion before, my friend who said I must respect Obama, said it was because the Lord put him in office for a reason.

If you look at it that way then George Washington, Patrick Henry, The Scottish Covenanters, William Wallace, Simon the Zealot and even Ehud are not men to be praised but scorned because they didn't respect their rulers, we are not to respect evil men.

We are to give "Honour unto whom Honour is due".

Obama is America's first real tyrant and I'm both mad and sad for my country.

As far as I can tell, you want me to respect Obama just because he's President, hypothetically, what if Hitler had become President, should we respect him?

As to Evolutionists, I should have specified that the ones that I'm refering to are the ones who sit in classrooms everyday and with their teaching send children to hell.

"The fool hath said there is no God".

Or those who use evolution as a cruch to keep themselves from believing and following the Lord.

Read Romans chapter 1, you will see that evolutionists, "Professing themselves to be wise became fools" and they have "Changed the truth of GOD into a lie", "They are without understanding" ie. stupid, see definition of stupid above.

Your right, our example is Jesus, please read Matthew chapter 23 to see how judgemental He is.

Without His Grace, I would be a stupid, hell-bound fool.
If I can help it, I don't want anyone else to go down the broad path to hell and destruction.

As to the stuff about Palin, let it never be said of Mike Powers that he was a sexist.
I love women, without whom I would not be here nor would want to be.

Your right, women have played a very large part in history, PLEASE don't think that I believe otherwise.

Not to mention, my Sisters are my superiors in many endeavors.

But using Deborah (A judge because the nation was under judgment), Esther (a helpmeet to her husband who was the ruler) and Rahab (a women who recognized the Power of the Lord) to defend women in office is like using Jael to defend women in the military.

Palin obviously was not the Lord's choice.

My problem with Palin is not only because the Bible tells us that "I permit not a women to have rule over a man" and "Let the women be keepers at home, lest the word of the Lord be Blasphemed" this is my #1 reason, but also because she is an avowed feminist.

She once said that "Women who do not support other women (feminists) have a special place reserved for them in hell".
Uhhh, what was that you were saying about "Christians" being so judgemental?

Listen, I know it's gotta be hard being a women and a Christian in times like these.
I hope now that I have given you my reasons for saying what I did, you're not (as) offended and I hope you get some rest and get over your cold, those things ain't fun;).

Please feel free to come back and comment often!

God Bless you,

Ah.. Okay, I must apologize. :P I may have overreacted just a little bit. I still disagree with several things you have said, but you are free to have your opinion, just as I am free to have mine.

Just curious though.. what do you think about women going to college and having careers? I am planning on going to a music school in the amazingly good city of LA (note the sarcasm :P). It's going to ROCK.. if I can get a gazillion scholarships to pay for it.

You're homeschooled right? Are you in highschool?

Mike said...

I can't accuse you of overreacting, I've been know to do it myself ;).

First of all let me say, I think that it is incumbent upon all Christians to be as well educated and productive in the talents that the Lord has given us that we can be. That said, when it comes to college and career I think that "Let the women be keepers at home, lest the word of the Lord be Blasphemed" applies here as well.

If one of my sisters wanted to go to college (and as you have professed to be a Christian, I will treat you as a sister) I would really discourage them, 75% of people who say they are Christians in high school say they have lost their faith after college. I think it's time for Christian youth to think outside the box. We should be the first to show the world the better way instead of feeling the need to follow them.

I could rant about how sexually and morally perverted the college campus is, take a look at this blogpost.

If you can't see all of this link, right click Comments and select "Open in new tab".

Or, about the rules that prevent students from carrying a gun, which leaves them like sheep led to the slaughter when a mad man brings one or ten to campus.

If you look for examples in the Bible you will see that the women who leave the safety of their protectors (read Genesis 34) have bad outcomes.

I could tell you of Christian girls I know, who went to "Christian" colleges and came back shocked and depressed, wishing that they had never gone in the first place.

It's your choice, but as a Sister In Christ I would advise taking online college or going to a local college instead, at least you don't have to stay on campus.
Or perhaps, the best of all options would be to find a mentor.

I know Christian women who have careers from their home which I think is great, if you can make money from your own home, do so.

If you look at the qualifications for the church to provide for a widow then you will see what the Lord expects from every woman, 1st Timothy 5. Also look at Proverbs 31, where we see a very prosperous woman, using her talents and building her family.

The Bible must be our source of all wisdom as we search out the Lord's will for our lives. We chose to ignore the precepts taught there at our own danger.

So what musical instruments do you play?

Yes, I was Homeschooled and I have graduated from High school.

Just wondering though, now that you know alot about me, what about you?
If I may be so bold, what's your name, from what state do you hail?

God Bless,

Anonymous said...

So, is your profile wrong or are you actually graduated even though you're 17?? That's not fair if you are. :)

I'm homeschooled too, and I'm a junior this year. My name's Brooke. Live in Idaho.

Mostly I play drums. Percussion is what I want to major in. I also play piano and a little bit of guitar. (emphasis on the little)

I won't be able to stay on campus if I get to go to the school in LA. They don't have dorms, so I would have to have an apartment.

My problem with the thinking that everyone girl should stay home and take care of her home is... I don't think God calls of us to get married and have kids. I'm actually hoping to getinto the professional music industry. Tour. Make albums. Stuff like that. I'm thinking from your post on music that you wouldn't enjoy the music I love. :P I play the "spitting in the mic" stuff. :D

Mike said...


I'm afraid I will not be able to respond to your previous comment until Monday, because I'm literally stepping out the door right now and will not be back until then.

However, yes I'm 17 and I graduated earlier this year.

Talk to you Monday!

God Bless,

Mike said...

Hi Brooke, I'm very sorry for not responding quicker!

In one of my last comments I said It's your choice, I would like to explain what I meant.

Nothing is neutral!

In life we are forced to make decisions, it is up to us as Christians to make the right ones by deciding what to do after searching out the matter in the Holy Bible.

So in the end, we decide to follow the Lord or ourselves, which one never fails?

We ought to take up our cross daily and follow Christ, whether our cross is dying for the faith or just dying to our flesh.

I've had fun talking with you and I hope you come back and comment often!

God Bless,

I have heard talk of this - but nothing more. What are your sources Mike? I really want to know what's going on. Please fill me in.
Kudos to your advice to Ms. Brooke.

Mike said...

Obama gave a speech calling for a "Civilian National Defense Force".

Here's a link to the clip on YouTube:

What does the guy think a Militia is for?

Thank you Johann, I pray she made the right choices.
