Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

At GoldmanSachs666, your source of info for all things Goldman, we have a nice article on how cozy Goldman is with our dear leaders. I'll give you just a snippet:
According to research by the Center for Responsive Politics, 19 current members of Congress reported holdings in Goldman Sachs during 2010. Whether by coincidence or not, most of these 19 Goldman Sachs investors in Congress are more powerful or more wealthy than their peers, or both.
Nine of them sit on either the most powerful committee in their chamber or committees charged with regulating the Wall Street giant. Moreover, seven of them are among the 25 wealthiest members of their respective chambers, according to the Center's research.

At Nonsensible Shoes, we're reminded what a godless piece of work we have in the White House.

Mary at North Face Search, relates how our government sides with Muslims over Christians. We see this happening over and over and yet saying because there are Muslims, we have to hand over our civil liberties. Destabilization, pure and simple.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
I John 5-10


  1. I love it when you post your Rule 5 Detox. :0) Thanks for including me! I'm off to read your links. No church this morning. Sick babies. Seems to be happening a lot lately.

  2. Thanks for the link and a great roundup.

  3. Thanks for the link Mom ... Very nice roundup.

  4. thank you for linking to my post -

    as to Ron Paul-(your post below) promoting Homeschool- good on him-!!! didn't know that he did that!

    Homeschool is our only option for truly-historically exceptional education...and we HS parents must stick together...

  5. Thanks for the mention.
    As to Quite Rightly--That Dr. is not the only unit declaring entity.
    In the F D A--US code (not sure where or what paragraph) refers to control of agriculture and dairy---something in the way as to----humans And OTHER ANIMALS.
    Listening to coast to coast, some guy from TX., took the FDA to court over their attacking him with FDA regulations; he found that phrase in their own US code, and the FDA settled out of court; denying him his day in court; a settlement is not a win, but a diversion to keep his arguments out of court records and not allowing a Precedence to be set in case law--especially against the U.S. Gov.; especially that would shatter-runaway Home Land Sec., and Depts of runaway activities simulating Police State Control.

  6. Thanks for the link, RM...! I am missing our friend Jim at Conservatives On Fire. Haven't heard a peep. Have you?? I am still praying for him and hope he can recover. It did not sound to optimistic, however. Hope our Jim web of friends can all stay linked up!

  7. Thanks for stopping by, all!
    I've seen that FDA story equating us with animals. That's why they need you to believe Darwin-it's a real angle in their plans. Anybody who trusts their health to these people is a fool. Have you seen that Burlynski movie about the cancer doctor's battle with the FDA -wild stuff!

    I haven't heard from Jim, I'm hoping he's getting the help he needs.
