I just saw this on Face Book. Kind of thought provoking

Citizens AGAINST Barack Obama's Socialist Agenda
Last night (Tuesday) on his TV show, Glenn Beck dropped another bombshell — on Thursday, Congress will take up a bill to make Puerto Rico a state. Why is our Congress doing this now? Secretly? Quickly? ...
"Please consider this:
* The U.S. would transform, overnight, into a bilingual nation. At least half of Puerto Ricans do not speak English, the language of our U.S. Constitution and founding documents. The Washington Times article, “Puerto Rican statehood,” analyzes all the implications of adding a foreign language-speaking state to the Union.
* It would bring immediate demands for massive federal spending. The average income of Puerto Ricans is less than half that of our poorest state, and infrastructure and the environment are far below American standards. Puerto Rico has a population with a median national income of $17,741, nearly a third of that for the U.S.
* Puerto Rico is already a democracy. Despite the bill’s deceptive title, Puerto Rico already has an elected government and exists as a self-governed commonwealth of the U.S.
* Statehood would give Puerto Rico more congressional representation than 25 of our 50 states! It would inevitably give Democrats two additional U.S. Senators and 6 to 8 additional Members of the House."

Awesome Senior Moment

You know these are sent around cyber space as something someone saw or heard. You never know if they actually happened or not, but in the case of this one, it is just to good not to share:)

Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a
recent inter-action between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC. There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets, on the evils of America . I politely declined to take one.

The elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20-ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice the young lady said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq ?"

The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea , and a son in Vietnam . All three died so you could have the right to stand here and badmouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your butt and open it."

400,000 Nonprofit Organizations (Including Many Christian Ministries) Are Weeks Away From Losing Their Tax Exemptions

Did the headline above get your attention? It should. The truth is that approximately 400,000 U.S. nonprofit organizations, including thousands of Christian ministries, are just weeks away from losing their tax exemptions. Why? Well, a very sneaky provision buried in a 2006 pension reform bill required all nonprofit organizations to file tax forms the following year. Prior to that, only nonprofit organizations that had revenues of $25,000 or more had to file tax returns. The problem is that hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations did not realize this. This new provision, which was deeply embedded in the 393 pages of the Pension Protection Act of 2006, also instructed the IRS to revoke the tax exemptions of all nonprofit organizations that failed to file tax returns for 3 consecutive years.

Well guess what?

The three years are just about up and hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations are about to experience a financial doomsday.

The New York Times recently quoted Diana Aviv, the president of the nonprofit trade group Independent Sector, as saying the following about the impact that this deadline is going to have....

"It’s going to be an unholy mess once these organizations realize what’s happened to them."

And that is what this is.

A gigantic mess.

Have the Christian ministries and organizations that you are affiliated with been filing tax returns with the IRS?

Are you sure?

If not, they may be about to lose their tax exemptions.

The reality is that many politicians in Washington have been trying to figure out for a long time how to start sucking some revenue out of the nonprofit world. In particular, many liberals have long resented the tax exemptions that churches and other religious organizations have enjoyed.

But coming out and openly proposing a repeal of the tax exemptions for churches and religious organizations would not be popular at all.

So they have to find backdoor ways to do it.

The truth is that it would be really easy for Congress to repeal this stupid provision so that hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations do not suddenly lose their tax exemptions.

But they aren't going to do it.

They have got thousands upon thousands of unsuspecting victims in their legislative trap and that is just where many of the folks in Washington want them.

The reality is that we have become a nation that has so many thousands upon thousands of laws that it is literally impossible to comply with them all.

Trust me on this - I went to law school.

So what should a ministry do that finds itself trapped by this situation?

Well, you need to contact the IRS immediately and try to get this straightened out.

For those individuals who are very upset about this, you can try contacting your representatives in Congress, but with Barack Obama and the Democrats in control, the odds that this provision will be repealed are somewhere between very slim and none.

The truth is that this is yet another example of how the U.S. government is literally getting their fingers into every aspect of our daily lives. But as we move into the last days things are going to get far worse. Right now in America we are only facing "soft" persecution. In other areas of the world they are already facing torture and death for the cross, and that will happen in this country some day as well. But in the midst of the persecution millions will turn to Yahshua (Jesus) and be saved. This is going to be one of the most exciting times in all of history to be alive, so let us be thankful and let us take the gospel forward no matter what the opposition is.

I saw this article on Face Book and thought it should be shared here too. The original article is at this site.
One may argue that this happened on Bush's watch, but I ask, Who was in control of congress?
Someone posted a clarification to the above. Might make things a bit simpler.
Automatic Revocation for Not Filing Annual Return or Notice

Most tax-exempt organizations, other than churches, must file a yearly return or notice with the IRS. If an organization does not file as required for three consecutive years, the law provides that it automatically loses its tax-exempt status. Loss of exempt status means an organization must file income tax returns and pay income tax, and its contributors will not be able to deduct their donations.

What must be filed this year depends on the organization’s financial activity: ...

Smaller organizations can file with a simple E-post-card.
This was on the Face Book Site I found the original article on.

You're a 19 year old kid.
You're critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam .

It's November 11, 1967.

LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out.

Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.

You look up to see a Huey coming in. But ... It doesn't seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.

He's not Medi-Vac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety.

And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!!
Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.

He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.

Medal of Honor Recipient,Captain Ed Freeman,United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise , Idaho .

May God Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's
passing, but we've sure seen a whole bunch about Michael Jackson and Tiger Woods.

Medal of Honor Winner
Captain Ed Freeman

Shame on the American media !!!

Now ... YOU pass this along on YOUR mailing list.

Don't forget next Saturday

It is a small price to pay to ensure the safety of our great land. Read on.

Don't forget to mark your calendars.
As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked and if he does, he must commit suicide. So next Saturday at 1 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists.
Circling your block for one hour is recommended for thisanti-terrorist effort.

All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their houses to demonstrate their support for the women and to prove that they are not Muslim terrorist sympathizers. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your patriotism.

The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America !

The Day of Silence

Christian Conservatives joining together to take back America for God

A message to all Patriots of Conservative Moms for America

The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay,

Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches.

This year it will take place in most public schools on April 16.

On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers

of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an

entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN's

socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven,

and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.

Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the

classroom for political purposes.

Please join the national effort to restore to public education a

proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.

You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling

your child out of school if your child's school allows students

to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.

Parents should no longer passively countenance the political

usurpation of public school classroomsthrough student silence.

If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can

express their opposition most effectively by calling

their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending

letters of explanation to their administrators,

their children's teachers, and all school board members.

One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose

money for each student absence.

School administrators err when they allow the classroom

to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain

silent throughout an entire day.


1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students

or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on

"Day of Silence." IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator,

school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors,

endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor

the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students

in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it.

Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the

DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes

even teachers to remain silent during instructional time.

Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create

lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school.

(The national date in 2010 is April 16, but some schools observe

DOS on a different date).

3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children

home on that date and explain why.

Some lighthearted humor for the day

Obama was fishing off a small bridge, lost his footing and fell over into the water. (WAIT!!! There's more…)
Before the Secret Service could get down to rescue him, 3 boys who were fishing at the base of the bridge jumped in and saved him. Obama, grateful, offered each of the boys one "wish."
The first boy said, "I'd like to go to Disney World." O said, "I'll have you flown to Disney World on Air Force One and you'll go straight to the front of every line for rides."
The second boy said, "I'd like a pair of Air Jordans." "You'll not only get a pair of Air Jordans but I'll have Michael Jordan autograph a 2nd pair for you."
The third boy said, "I'd like a motorized wheelchair with a flat screen tv, a Playstation, a stereo, speakers and headphones on it." Obama said, "You can easily have that but why a wheelchair? You're not handicapped."
"I will be when my dad finds out I saved your @$$."

Bernie Madoff vs. The Government

Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison? To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him. Trouble was, he didn't invest their money. As time rolled on, he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors. Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going. Next thing you know Madoff is one of the most hated men in America and he is off to jail.

Some of you know this but not enough of you. Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 60 years with Social Security. There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions.

Do you need a side-by-side comparison? Well here's a nifty little chart.

Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them laterTakes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a "Trust Fund" and made available later.
Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in the Hamptons and yachts.Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians use it for general spending and vote buying.
When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the geezers.
When Madoff's scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won't give him any more cash.When Social Security runs out of money they simply force the taxpayers to send them some more.
Bernie Madoff is in jail.Politicians remain in Washington.

He is Risen

To PEE OR NOT TO PEE --Words of wisdom from an unknown person:

Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me.
I pay my taxes & the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem).

What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

So, here is my question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping
someone sitting on their BUTT----doing drugs
while I work.

Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could call the program

Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though. Something has to change in this country - AND SOON!
P .S. Just a thought, all politicians
should have to pass a urine test too!

Every time I think of the Health Care Reform, I think of this man.
