It is so disheartening to hear negative attitude from others. I lived with a negative person growing up and Sunday football games were not fun if I cared who won. Usually in the first half, “our” team would be down a few touchdowns and as soon as that last point was scored by the other team, my dad would bemoan our fate in life that we were saddled with such a lousy losing team. “They might as well go home; it’s over,” he would say. I would sigh and just keep watching. Sometimes our team would win; sometimes not. Football was just one small dose of negativity. There were many more.
I am having some of the same frustration with people who tell us that our nation is over. Articles and comments spread the doom into our hearts. There are times I almost believe it, too. But not quite. There is this thing inside me that just doesn’t want to give up or admit defeat. I know that the evil forces that have been working for the last 50-100 years to cause the collapse of the United States of America are vast and strong. They have planned, schemed and toiled to subvert our society, morals, and beliefs and have come close to succeeding.
But not yet. We are NOT done for. It is not over. We are still here and I know there are more of us than there are of them. We have only been awakened for the last 4-6 years, but we are not finished. People are working; people are praying and hope has not been beaten.
Yes, I know. I have read the wailings of those who believe that we are through; we don’t have the stones to fight for our way of life. They believe that the incredibly evil and complicated machinations to turn our country into a 3rd world hell-hole have succeeded and we are now paper dolls floating in the wind of the inevitable. They see us sitting on our couches wringing our hands while watching Fox News or typing our pitiful comments to every screed about the latest foul action of the ruling class. They see us as useless sheep baa baa baaing our useless little voices and shaking our shriveled little fists at the mighty hurricane of destruction.
Ok, maybe they are not quite that negative.
We are not finished yet. For as many people as there are in this country, that is how many different ways we fight. Some take the bullhorn and blast the message. Others work behind the scene and spread their message by the way they live. All of us together make one massive force to fight back and regain the country we proudly defend. Not one way of fighting is the only way. Some are more obvious and may whip us the masses while others doggedly press on gaining converts to our “side” by our quiet love.
The reason for this missive is a post in the bullpen by bitterclinger:
“Keep the faith,” Palin writes in recent FB post
As I read this article, I was pleased to know that others have also not given up.
Thank you, dear bitterclinger, for posting this.

Why wouldn’t this be considered child abuse?
I’m dead serious:
The lesbian parents of an 11-year-old boy who is undergoing the process of becoming a girl last night SexChangeat11defended the decision, claiming it was better for a child to have a sex change when young.
Thomas Lobel, who now calls himself Tammy, is undergoing controversial hormone blocking treatment in Berkeley, California to stop him going through puberty as a boy.
More here if you can stomach it…
See, there was this train derailment. Then we used another train to pull it out of the ditch.
I made a comment on this post from Cardigan about a “Dianny Rants” column. It was about Obama having a ‘Hero Homicide Complex’. Those who suffer from this complex set up disasters so they may sweep in and save the day.
My comment suggested that Obama was responsible for the BP Oil Spill, Boston Marathon Bombing, Newtown and Benghazi.
That got me thinking. Am I serious or just making fun of Obama? Maybe both. I don’t really think he is personally arranging these incidents, but I wouldn’t even be mildly surprised to find out it was true.
BP/Deepwater Horizon Explosion/Oil Spill
Let’s think about this for a minute. What happened after the oil spill? Obama’s dream came true:
1) He could blame big oil for nasty decades-long environmental devastation that would impact the economy of a region (at least, that’s how long he hoped it would be).
2) He could blame high energy prices on big oil.
3) And best of all, he could limit drilling for oil and begin his campaign to eliminate all fossil fuel dependency in this country.

2012 Newtown, CT
Who were the perpetrators? Who were the victims? What was used?
Perps were muslim and crazies, victims were mostly the white privileged who need to pay for the atrocities that the black have suffered and finally, guns were used – big scary mean ol’ guns with big ol’ magazines that can mow down thousands – nay, millions of chiiiillllreeens.
Ok, that one is a little ‘out there’; but it is just for discussion sake, let’s just say.
Operation Fast and Furious
Big scary mean ol’ guns. Illegal aliens (yes, I said it) overrunning our borders wreaking havoc in our country.
Big scary mean ol’ video. Oops, I mean – he had to get rid of Ambassador Stevens somehow, didn’t he? Stevens was either doing something or knew something little o didn’t want to get out. OR, he just wasn’t interested. He had campaigning to do; he needed his rest. Nighty night.
Boston Marathon Bombing
Oblamo “arranged” the collusion between the T brothers and that Saudi Arabian. Can’t imagine the reason. They didn’t use big scary mean ol’ guns and it proves little o doesn’t know what he is doing regarding islam being a terrorist organization – NOT the religion of peace.
West Fertilizer Company Explosion
To take our attention off of the Saudi Arabian he was trying to get out of the country.
I know that I missed some; there were so many…
It’s that time of year … except for half of the country which is still suffering algoreitosis (extended global cooling).

Normally I don’t include people in my critter posts, but today’s dovetails with yesterday’s Baby post.
God bless the children.
