Comedian In Chief

Our glorious leader has been self-appointed to the office of Comedian In Chief.

As Comedian In Chief, his job will be to make stupid jokes, call those who enforce his laws stupid and trick our country into thinking that: "We have to spend money to keep from going bankrupt."

Don't believe me? Watch this.



So, he admits he is biased in favor of the professor, states that he doesn't know the details of the case and yet he still slams the police officer.

He never said anything like that about "Reverend" Wright, who was videotaped spewing racist filth.

I think that the situation is very reminiscent of this comedy sketch.
Caution; some questionable content follows.



But I find the president in the second video infinitely funnier.

Happy Birthday Liv!



"By the margin, willow veil'd,
Slide the heavy barges trail'd
By slow horses; and unhail'd
The shallop flitteth silken-sail'd
Skimming down to Camelot:
But who hath seen her wave her hand?
Or at the casement seen her stand?
Or is she known in all the land,
The Lady of Shalott?

Only reapers, reaping early,
In among the bearded barley
Hear a song that echoes cheerly
From the river winding clearly;
Down to tower'd Camelot;
And by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, 'Tis the fairy
Lady of Shalott.'"


I'd like to wish my sister, Olivia Taylor Powers, a Happy 16th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Sis, may the Lord bless you in the coming years and may you live to see Freedom, Order and Peace restored to our country.

Rehoboth Farm



A good view of the potato bed.




This is our second try at growing millet and it's been doing quite well.




The social outcast of the chicken flock, we like to call him the "Lone Free Ranger".




All of our previous hives have swarmed, taking too many workers with them which caused the rest of the hive to die off.
So we're very thankful that this current colony has done very well over the past three years.




We expect to have plenty of corn before too long.




A overview of the garden.

Who's The Terrorist Now?

We hear daily reports of lawlessness abroad, of hostages taken, of property stolen, of innocents killed. The modern day media loves to broadcast every depressing tidbit of information they come across, with one exception.

When the current Government becomes the kidnapper and the thief, the media makes excuses for them.
The Government has imprisoned a teenager without due process, please check out this post by my good friend Son3, I'm in total agreement with him.

What's the excuse for this?

Something like "Oh, if they didn't kidnap that guy, innocent Americans might die!"
Yet, waterboarding fanatic Muslim's is terrible, even though we've extracted info that may have saved thousands of lives.

Personally, I have not really decided if I'm for or against waterboarding*, I just use the previous example to defend my point, that most of the media outlets win the "Sycophant of the year award".
But to return to the subject of this post.

The Government can now do no wrong in the people's eyes.
This is because the Government is viewed as perfect by the media, (the ones who tell the people what to believe). And why shouldn't they be viewed thus? They're both Socialistic.

Today, while checking my emails, I ran across this news story, which is the cause of my rant.

The Government is using Eminent Domain to usurp the rights of property owners, so they will own the property where Flight 93 went down.
They say they want to own the land to build a memorial, but let's not forget what happened the first time they said this.

The brave Americans on Flight 93 left their own memorial, one engraved in the minds of those who remember the aftermath of the terrible day.

"Down with fascism."

If those who died then could speak to us today, I'm sure they would say something like that.
They died fighting Islamo-Fascism, but today the Government is using their own poisonous concoction "to honor them".

Maybe it's just me, but if I had died in such a manner, I would rather be quickly forgotten than have a memorial, on land tyranically snatched from it's true owners, dedicated to me.

As the wise Dr. Ron Paul said;
“When fascism comes, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”

Let's Roll,
~Mike


*I view Waterboarding as really pushing the 8th Amendment, if not in total contridiction to said Amendment.

It Never Happend

One of the hallmarks of a socialist dictatorship is the ability to deny anything.

Recently at the G-20 summit in London, glorious leader Obama bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah.
I find this not only offensive, but treasonous.




Well guess what? According to the White House it never happened.
That's right, glorious leader did nothing to bring shame upon the glorious democracy of the United States of America.

Why would his Snootiness stoop to a leader whose people still use sand dunes for toilets?
The picture below provides the answer.


Kudos go to my Dad for his propaganda prowess.

Like a chicken with it's head cut off...

Hi y'all!

I know I have left many a comment unanswered and for that I must beg your forgiveness!

I've been insanely busy lately and it's kept me away from my computer, but Lord willing things will slow down some soon.
Who knows, I might post some pics of the things I've been working on.

How Far Can Greatness Fall?

O America, how far can greatness fall?

Our armies strength is mighty yet
Prosperity still flows
But loss of Godly character
Has struck a mortal blow.

From following lies, we must leave
And from seeking our own ways
Then turn once more to our father's God
The Author of our days.

Remember still the words of those
Who bravely came before
Who knelt as if on hallowed ground
Upon these rocky shores.

They claimed this land for Jesus
And His it still remains
But if, through sin destruction comes
It's we who hold the blame.

For our God, He is a jealous God
An All Consuming Fire
And that which He calls Holy
We must not defile.

So train your children early
And in repentance heed His law,
And though America stumble
God forbid she fall.

For Want Of An Armed Sheepdog...

As most of you have probably heard, earlier this week a crazed man walked into a church and started shooting.

After four shots, his pistol jammed, he pulled out a pocket knife and wounded two men who were trying to restrain him, he then stabbed himself.
The first shot was deflected by the pastor's Bible, however the next three hit and killed him.

It's sad when events like these happen, it's an awful reminder of how the American male has gone from the gun totin' He-man, to the effeminate sugar-daddy.

I'm thankful for the men who tackled the gunman, it took guts to take on a man with a .45 and a knife, but when the dust settled both of them were stabbed with one of them still in serious condition.
If just one of them had been armed, the outcome might have been very different, the pastor might not be dead and the defenders wounded.

Since this terrible act of violence, 11 people were shot in south Alabama and in Germany 16 were sent to their Maker, both were random killing sprees and both could have been stopped by an armed Christian.

What should we do?

Gear up, because when our president starts banning weapons, the means to defend yourself and those you must protect won't be available.

Deuteronomy 32:43
"Rejoice, O nations, with His people;
For He will avenge the blood of His servants,
And will render vengeance on His adversaries,
And will atone for His land and His people."

Saving Private Ryan: A Review




Long have I heard "It's the greatest WWII movie ever!!" said of this film.

Truth be told?
It's ten times worse than that inaccurate piece of garbage Braveheart.

The movie starts out on Omaha beach, June 6 1944, we are introduced to Captain John Miller (played by Tom Hanks), a weak Ranger* who is not understood by his men.

After the chaos of the landing has subsided, he is given the task of finding Pvt. James Ryan (Matt Damon), C Company 101st Airborne 501st PIR , a boy from Nebraska who has lost 3 of his brothers in battle within days of each other.
Most of the movie is dedicated to the quest for Ryan.

Lots of boring emotional dialogue and very little fighting make for a weak story line.

In one of the few firefights in the movie, Capt. Miller decides to take a radar station defended by a handful of Germans.
During this battle Miller loses his Medic, who has put his life on the line several times trying to save comrades during the movie.

The Medic's death scene seems to last forever, made worse by the subsequent scene, wherein they find the German who shot him, alive and trying to escape.
Members of Miller's squad catch the German and are preparing to execute him when Corporal Upham, a technician they have brought along for his linguistic skills, begs and pleads the Capt. to free the prisoner because "he said he was sorry".

Unfortunately, the Capt. does this, telling the Nazi to walk a thousand paces and turn himself in to the next Allied patrol he meets.
The squad then continues on their merry way through France, looking for this Ryan guy and having quite a few emotional conversations.


While hiding from a Half-Track (note: I said "hiding" not "destroying"), they find Pvt. Ryan (whose insignia identifies him as part of the 506th PIR).
After informing him that his brothers have been killed, he decides to stay and help "the closest things to brothers he's got" defend a bridge in a French town that they've occupied.

Thus starts the only real battle scene in the movie, but not before some more needless dialogue.

During the ensuing firefight, Upham is made resupply man for the squad and elements of the 506th.
However, being the sensitive type he chickens out and fails his duties, which causes the slow and painful deaths of the real warriors in the film.
I bet you can't guess which Nazi kills them!

Because the town is being overrun, Capt. Miller orders the survivors to the other side of the bridge, where they hope to make a last stand.
Deciding to blow up the bridge, Miller runs to a detonator, but is stopped when he is shot by a German (POW guy again) on the other side of the river.

Suddenly, amidst Ryan's woman-like screams and Upham's sobbing, we hear the mighty roar of engines from P-51's and Sherman Tanks, who come out of nowhere and save the day.

But wait, there's still more!

We have a emotional speech between Miller and Ryan, then a flashback to the modern day where we hear Ryan's wife say, "You're a good man".

Thus ends the "epic" Saving Private Ryan.


The prevailing message of this story seems to be that warriors are really cowards, but cowards are really warriors (Upham shoots the POW near the end).
Personally I find this disgusting, maybe it's just me, but the movie comes off as an insult to WWII Vets.

This movie takes a group of individuals who fought and died that their children might be free.
But as liberals typically do, they change these courageous men by turning them into stupid, effeminate and emotional animals.
Upham was such a girly-man, yet Spielberg made him the exemplary character, the one you're supposed to want to be like.

Contrast this with the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers, which has issues of it's own, yet it truly brings honor to "The Greatest Generation".
There certainly were cowards in WWII (like this guy), but if you're going to spend $90,000,000 portraying these men, at least heap accolades upon a real warrior.

The ranting of Mike Powers is ended...


For now.


*As I live close to the "Home of the Ranger's", I can tell you, there is no such thing as a "Weak Ranger".

Churchill Has Left The Building.


I was just checking the headlines on CNN, A.K.A. the Communist News Network, when I saw a brief blurb about this.


And as if this was not bad enough, guess who's most glorious head now graces the Oval Office?

"American politicians have made quoting Churchill, whose mother was American, something of an art form, but not Mr Obama, who prefers to cite the words and works of his hero Abraham Lincoln.
Indeed a bust of Mr Lincoln now sits in the Oval Office where Epstein's Churchill once ruled the roost."

My feelings are perfectly expressed in this quote by Churchill.
"Cats look down on us. Dogs look up to us. Pigs treat us as equals"

Back Home

Hey Y'all!

We got home safe and sound Monday morning, because I had let you know I was leaving, I thought I should let you know I was back.

Dad received 1st and 3rd place in the Treatment category, for which we are extremely thankful to the Lord (you can read more here, about half-way down the page).

Hopefully, I will get back into the swing of things soon and start posting.

God Bless,
~Mike
