Kitchen Rug II

Vying for most favored doggie status,
Pencil-Nose Pierre assumes the rug position.

What a long, skinny photo.
Oops, 'xcuse me.

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?  ~Galatians 4:16

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.  ~Psalm 19:14

It's Dinnertime! (BeansNot)

Barack Obama (1/18/09) — "Millions of Americans are losing their jobs and their homes."

AP (1/19/09) — "Standing in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial, US president-elect Barack Obama called on Sunday for a new spirit of national sacrifice to overcome war and economic crisis."

AP (2/23/09) WASHINGTON – "After an evening of black tie grandeur at the White House, governors planned to return Monday morning for a business meeting with President Barack Obama to discuss how to spend the economic stimulus money
[taxpayers' dollars or electronically created funny-money] soon flowing to their states."

For the Ruling Elite:  Black Tie Grandeur
For the Minions:  Sacrifice

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  ~Psalm 2:10, 11

The Tip of a Firestorm

"Have people gone mad in this country?"
Alan Keyes

It's not patriotic to remain willfully ignorant of what is happening in one's nation or to determine one will blindly follow a particular political party's platform and guidance.  I've seen courageous, patriotic attempts to inform, to make the truth available — in spite of the arrogant mocking, name-calling, derision, and villifying of the messengers.

Personally, I'm not overly concerned about patriotism, except for being heavily vexed by people who hurl accusations of being unpatriotic at those who care enough about this country to research and learn the facts, which are readily available.  I cannot, and do not desire to, separate a Biblical worldview from any facet of my life, including politics.  It would be disingenuous of me to attempt to convince myself or anyone else that I am so far removed from happenings in the world that I care not what is the destiny of the USA, the country in which I was blessed to be born and to live.

Christians understand we are witnessing what appears to be a fast track to one world government to be ruled by one man.  That is worthy of attention: when the USA becomes unrecognizable, so, also, will be greatly diminished the ability to fulfill the commission given us in the kingdom of our eternal citizenship.

Five times Jesus told us, referring to end times events, to watch.  He told us what would be occurring on the earth, and He told us to watch, "...and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." [Luke 21:36]

You needn't necessarily care about what's happening in the USA.
If you care, the film "End Game" can be viewed at YouTube or Google Video.

This You Must Know

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.  ~Luke 21:28

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  ~Romans 8:38, 39

Day-Old Babies

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.  Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.  ~Philippians 2:3, 4

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  ~II Corinthians 5:17

It's Miller Time

When it's family time at Son2's house, Miller's not to be excluded.

That's so cute.  Isn't that cute?  He looks just like his nana after 5 minutes of Candyland.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  ~James 1:5

Article - Audacity

"Yes, a weekend at Camp David was not enough of a rest for the First Family.  They required a weekend in Chicago in order to celebrate Valentine's Day this past weekend.  It would seem that Michelle was not satisfied with the White House chef that she hand picked to cook for her for the next four years so after just a brief ride on Air Force One, the Ones found themselves snuggling in a corner booth at a swanky restaurant in their home town."  [Click here to read article about the Obamas' hard work and personal sacrifices in this time of national crisis.]

A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.  ~Psalm 37:16

Lift the Lid

This seems to be a recurring theme with our critters.

On second thought, would ya just walk across the room and use your own.

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.  ~Psalms 9:10

Calm Down

Son3 tagged me in my comment box.
Sorta threateningly.
Stop reading the pillows.
Study your math.

1.  Fill in your memories of 2008
2.  Tag others in the comment section of their blogs.

I won't be doing #2, so if you're short on blog fodder or would enjoy doing this little exercise, consider yourself tagged.

A book I read:  The Holy Bible

A monument I will always remember:[Webster - 2)  a written legal document or record]  the one the county erroneously wouldn't allow me to file

[Postscript:  Especially when one hasn't finished her first mug o' the morning, and when she finds a question so odd that she has to check-in with Webster, she should consider re-reading the question, which was actually A moment I will always remember.  In keeping, though, with my first response, the moment I will remember is the one which occurred two months later, discovering 3 clerks and 1 judge didn't know what they were talking about...which was a monumental error on their part.]

A new skill I acquired:  That's just rude.  Do you realize how old I am?  *thinking*  Ah!  Canning.  Pin a rose on my nose.

A movie I watched:Riddles in Stone

A lesson I learned:  Don't hold the seam ripper in my mouth while I'm sewing, because I won't be able to find it on the table when I need it. 

A new place I visited:  the bitsy pool deck

An inspiring verse or quote:  "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night."   Psalm 1:1, 2

They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.  ~Proverbs 28:4

Plum Meets Puppy

To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.  O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.  ~Psalm 30:12

My friend, Willow, sent me a link where one can access the pork spending in the oligarchy's spending-out-of-thin-air bill.  She began her email with an oink, which was fitting, so I borrowed it to title this post.

Kansas has some interesting needs in a time of financial crisis.  Financial crisis: food and shelter for individuals and families.  If one's of a mind to be thinking of job creation, be advised those jobs are only for a select group of people, and skilled white men need not apply.  If you're skilled and have light-colored skin, the plan is for you to participate in the redistribution of wealth — you get poorer, and a poor person becomes wealthier — if or when you lose your job.  I think it was about a year ago, when "jobs Americans won't do" was changed to "jobs Americans aren't doing."  Of course, Americans who are willing to work, will work at whatever job they can acquire, if they're in need of employment and the positions aren't filled by others, so the subtle change in verbiage was a necessity; some people are paying attention.  Reason would demand zero unemployment, before American jobs are given to citizens of other countries.  Reason would also not give hand-outs to people who won't work...thus spurring them to (*gasp*) WORK.  [For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. ~II Thessalonians 3:10]

If one hasn't studied the science of global warmingNot — no, I think they renamed the ruse climate change, when so many of Algore's movie "facts" were debunked [35 Inconvenient Truths - The Errors in Al Gore's movie] — here's a happy Kansas project:  City Hall Plaza energy improvement, addition of green design feature, municipal court and structure rehabilitation.  Cost: $22 million.

$15 million for Green Job Sewer System expansion; Extend sewer systems to areas currently using septic systems.  Color me ignernt, but I thought one couldn't get much greener than a septic system or lagoon — at the individual owners' cost of installation and maintenance.  Mayhap tearing up the countryside to lay miles of pipes for carrying wastewater to a facility which will bombard it with chemicals, add poison for your teeth (not very funny), and route it back through the tap is greener.  Ya nevuh know.

Here's a good one listed under Public Safety: New Jail Detention facility; currently the jail population exceeds capacity of the jail facility. This results in extensive $ on farm outs.  Cost: $24 million.   Aware that there are empty prisons all over the country, I quickly accessed this 2005 article about empty prisons.  It mentions what was a fairly good economy at the time, but the prisons do still sit empty and available for privatization, which is a hallmark of a capitalist economy and a good way to grow jobs.  Hey, privatizing some prisons would even wrench more money out of the hands of some wealthy people, and we all know those wealthy people just shouldn't have earned so much money, and neither should they be allowed to keep it!  We also, though, have a problem with (public) servants earning more than their masters, aka you and me.  What's up with that?  Come to think of it, they don't do what they're told either.  Something's rotten in Denmark America.

Under Public Safety, there's a mere $5 million slated for renovation of the ground floor of Kansas City, KS, City Hall.  I had no idea that city hall building was a safety menace, the ground floor in particular.  Makes me kinda hungry, thinking about new floor tiles and office chairs on the menu.

Happy Oinking!  (NOT)

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.  And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.  ~Matthew 15:14

They're Baa-aack

Thank you, Morgan, for missing the chickens, which let me and the chickens back out of the behave yourselves box.  I did groom them a bit, which is more than can be said of me at this hour, but a girl's gotta put her chickens first, don'tcha know.

Whew!  I feel better now.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  ~Philippians 4:8

Just look at me, tryin' to act all grown up and tasteful in my blogskin.  We'll see how long this ruse lasts.

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.  ~Psalms 51:1

Hello, Chickens


But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.  And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.  Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
~Luke 6:27-30

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.  ~Matthew 10:32-33
