Cultural Erosion and the *Legality* of Marriage

In a report issued yesterday by the New York Times, several *prominent* Republicans signed a legal brief in support of gay marriage. This includes four former Governors, two members of Congress, and several advisers to former President George W. Bush.

This move continues to shed light upon the fact that those on The Hill are completely out of touch with the American people. While the gay community has been manipulated by mainstream media in to a big hurrah as a victory for gay rights, they are ignoring the fact that this only further enslaves them. They are now caught in the snare that the heterosexual community has been subject to: a government mandate on the institution of marriage.

Last time I checked, marriage was not an illegal act, but a biblical concept. Lets take a look. From freedictionary:

li·cense
(lsns)

n.

1. a. Official or legal permission to do or own a specified thing. See Synonyms at permission.

b. A document, plate, or tag that is issued as proof of official or legal permission: a driver’s license.
2. Deviation from normal rules, practices, or methods in order to achieve a certain end or effect.
3. Latitude of action, especially in behavior or speech. See Synonyms at freedom.

4. a. Lack of due restraint; excessive freedom: “When liberty becomes license, dictatorship is near” (Will Durant).

b. Heedlessness for the precepts of proper behavior; licentiousness.

tr.v.li·censed, li·cens·ing, li·cens·es

1. To give or yield permission to or for.
2. To grant a license to or for; authorize. See Synonyms at authorize.
Permission. Since when does one need permission to do something which is protected by their religious freedom? Freedom. Freedom of what? The freedom to make your own choice…or is it the government’s job to issue approval? Authorize. Since when does the government hold authority over a biblical concept?
Let’s take a look at Merriam-Webster:
li·cense

noun \ˈlī-sən(t)s\

1 a: permission to act  b: freedom of action

2 a: a permission granted by competent authority to engage in a business or occupation or in an activity otherwise unlawful
b: a document, plate, or tag evidencing a license granted
c: a grant by the holder of a copyright or patent to another of any of the rights embodied in the copyright or patent short of an assignment of all rights
3 a: freedom that allows or is used with irresponsibility
b: disregard for standards of personal conduct :licentiousness
4 deviation from fact, form, or rule by an artist or writer for the sake of the effect gained
What? “An activity otherwise unlawful”? Yes, the power the government has impressed upon the church has deemed it illegal for anyone to marry, gay or straight, within a church without permission from the State to do what is otherwise unlawful, irresponsible, with  disregard for standards of personal conduct, and is a deviation from normal rules, practices, or methods. And there you have it, the act of marriage has now become subject to criminal activity unless a government official decides that it in your best interest to grant your request. Sounds like freedom, eh?
In 1999, while planning my wedding, we were specifically told by the priest that it was illegal for the church to perform the ceremonial rite of marriage. When pressed, he further responded that no church would perform such as it would jeopardize the church’s tax-exempt status. So, it seems their hands were tied as well.
This is where the government first really screwed the homosexual community, knowing at the time that churches would not perform weddings to those of the same-sex as it violated their belief system, bound churches pretty much by extortion. With the signing of this brief, it now looks as though the gay community is now bound too.
A little food for thought from my dear friend Scott Boston:

I don’t think the Government should tell Churches who to marry.

I also don’t think the Government should tell Churches who they shouldn’t marry.
If a church says that gay marriage is in violation with its beliefs and tenets of its faith then I have no problem with that church not performing that rite.
If a gay couple can find a church that wants to marry them, more power to them.
If you go to the justice of the peace, I think you should get a civil union no matter who you are since it is a civil and not a religious institution.
The reason that Government got involved in marriage was because progressives who believed in eugenics wanted to make sure that blacks and whites could not intermarry and dilute the white race.
Bingo.
Instead, both sides in Washington are now perpetuating more big-government by placing further restrictions on citizens. This is not a win for gay marriage, it is a further push toward slavery. We now have one more notch on the post of government control.
As the GOP continues to erode, so will society and American culture. From stixblog:
The slow decay of morality is the basis of the socialist movement.  It makes the people look to the State instead of Community and Religion for direction.
I do not wear my religion on my sleeve, but the total disregard for Religious Liberty is eroding, and is going into overtime with Obama.
It was mentioned to me that in a lot of ways, violent revolution would be easier than the battle that we and our children are about to face in the next generation.
I just finished The Harbinger at book club. It’s a very interesting read about an ancient biblical prophecy that foretells our collapse.
This isn’t a fight that our children will fight.  It’s ramping up to befall America in just a few short years. Things will continue to get worse as organizations and institutions fall into disarray, the GOP is there now.
Turning back to God is the only answer.
With that said, this is precisely where America stands at this moment:
The question is, will we continue to slam the door, or will we finally look to see what is on the other side before it’s too late?

URGENT: Patriots At The Ready: Rally At #MOSEN Debate

image

Unions are organizing to rally for McCaskill:

Patricia Bynes @Patricialicious

Rally for Sen @ClaireCMc tomorrow from 5pm-6:30pm Clayton High School before the debate #breakingstlnews

This is an urgent alert for all hands on deck as we counter the pro-McCaskill unions.

We recommend that children do not attend this event.

We need a show of numbers to counter the narratives they will try to set OUTSIDE the debate hall. We can’t let the headlines say that a large, pro-McCaskill contingency showed up. They will bear signs about rape and the “war on women.” This is the battle.

Who can commit? Please tell your friends and bring as many as you can. Bring posterboard; we have markers, let’s counter this demonstration.

We need numbers behind our voice. When Westboro came through here, they brought 3…WE brought 300! These are the numbers we need and more. We are at a “do or die” moment in our nation’s history. This is a battle we cannot lose. This is a pivotal point in our fight to restore Missouri to the people and the Senate to the righteous. Dress warm. Be sure wherever you park, you have two ways out. Stand strong and we will see you tomorrow!

***Rockwood Alert*** Rockwood Stakeholders for Real Solutions Requests Missouri State Audit

Well, it’s about time somebody moved on this.

As the economy continues to tank, taxes continue to rise in Rockwood, and that money is being funneled directly into the Rockwood School Board, not the schools.  Teachers are continually receiving 3% pay increase per year, while more and more taxpayers are losing jobs.  The justification for that? And I quote “Because that’s they way we’ve always done it.”  Seriously? I’m not buying that answer, because things now are not as they always were.

So when I received this about ten minutes ago, I was tickled:

IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 21, 2011

Rockwood Stakeholders for Real Solutions has sent a request to the Missouri State Auditors office to investigate the following stated in the email below.

To Whom It May Concern: Attached is a zip file containing documents connecting; 1. Rockwood School District2. Glenn Construction – the RSD Construction Program Mgr for the past 17 yrs.3. Rockwood School District Educational Facilities Authority – see below4. Steve Smith, Board President and employee of Glenn Construction

“The sole project of RSDEFA at this point is (i) the issuance of Leasehold Revenue Bonds, Series 2002 (Rockwood R-6 School District, St. Louis County, Missouri Project), in the aggregate principal amount of $8,210,000 (the “Bonds”), for the purpose of providing funds to (a) construct, furnish and equip an early childhood/special education center (the “Project”) (the Project Site and that portion of the Project being installed thereon being collectively referred to herein as the “Leased Facilities”), (b)  refinance certain prior equipment leases of the District, a portion of such equipment being situated at Babler Elementary School, which constitutes a portion of the Lease Facilities, and (c) pay the costs of issuance of the Bonds; (ii) lease the Leased Facilities to the District; (iii) enter into a Site Lease (the “Site Lease”) with the District under which the District will lease the Project Site to the Corporation; and (iv) enter into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with the District under which the Corporation will cause the proceeds of the Bonds to be used to finance costs of the Project and will lease the Leased Facilities to the District in consideration of rental payments by the District which are to be sufficient, during the Lease Term (as defined in the Lease), to pay the principal of, redemption premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds as the same become due”.  source:  email from Scott Tate, Director of Finance, RSD


RS for RS feels this is, at the minimum, an “appearance of impropriety” if not a blatant conflict of interest.

1. Mr. Smith is an employee of Glenn Construction – the RSD Construction Program Manager for the past 17 yrs.
2. Mr. Smith is the President of the RSD Board of Education
3. Mr. Smith is the Vice President of the RSDEFA

On September 18th and 19th when RS for RS reached out to Glenn Construction for a meeting with James Glenn and Arthur Floyd, we were instructed by Steve Smith to provide him a list of our concerns and he would bring it to their attention.  
Please advise as to the proper step to file a request for an investigation.Direct all questions and request for additional information to; Eileen Tyrrell, Co-Founder and Spokesperson @ 636-222-8305.Respectfully,

Rockwood Stakeholders for Real Solutions

Is It Any Wonder Our Kids Are Failing???

In response to a an email you’ll probably find resurfacing from Snopes (confirmed as “true” by the way) regarding bottle-bombs, blogger Chuck MacNab makes yet another great observation:

Could it be that this is just another result, among many, of the permissiveness that has been forced on our culture by liberals, especially since the 1960’s? Perhaps the liberal culture has so corrupted our children that it has confused many about the definition of criminal activity and ordinary people are no longer safe at home or at work? Certainly it has removed conscience and the awareness of ethical standards from the thought processes of many young people.

Schools, for instance, are no longer places where children are educated. Their most important function is to provide money from the community to pay for baby sitting services that are called “education.” The schools and many who work there have become spoiled brat examples of destructive activism designed to support an enhanced life-style. They have proven that they will withdraw their services and even fight in the streets to keep the power to strip communities of tax money and transfer it to themselves. They want to continue to elect school boards that vote to take advantage of low voter turnout to keep the money flowing “in the right direction.”

Citizens have only themselves to blame when they do not vote and allow these special interest groups (who do) to continue to raise taxes and transfer money to support a higher standard of living than most voters can now afford. With examples such as the screaming teachers in Wisconsin and their allies in big labor, what are children expected to learn as they observe examples of what is going on there and in their own neighborhoods? Maybe they are learning how to riot in the streets and, without a conscience, how to make cheap explosives that blow peoples fingers off? It’s time we started “connecting the dots” folks!

Senator Rob Mayer, Rand Paul is on the Phone

With two days left in the Missouri State Session, we still have nothing to show for Right to Work.

Why? You might ask?  Seems that the Firefighter’s Union and their lynch-pin lobbyist Neal English have shaken down pro-Right-to-Work legislators, including President Pro Tem Rob Mayer.

Now, I like Senator Mayer.  I’ve gone to bat for him on several occasions.  He seems to like me too. . .but this late in the session, I’m not even confident even a phone call will be taken. I’d really like to address my concerns with him about not getting one labor issue passed during this last session.  But Rand Paul took the words right out of my mouth:

Without any resolution this session on a single labor issue, it seems that the unions are gaining control of the GOP.  Sad day.

I certainly hope Senator Mayer can muster up the courage to stand firm to everything he set his career upon this 2011 session, beat the thugs back and do justice for the State of Missouri.  We can’t afford to lose anymore jobs.  We can’t afford to lose any more opportunity.  We can not afford to be run by blood-sucking unions.  I will stand behind the Senator, should he take such a stand. . .after all, he’ll need the support in his run for Attorney General.

If you’re feeling antsy, go ahead and give him a call at (573) 751-3859.

University of Missouri: What are Legislators To Do?

So, this story is like the Energizer Bunny.  It just keeps going, and going, and going. . . So, why aren’t our elected officials doing anything about it?  Beacause they think they can just play dumb!  Seriously, I just received a copy of a response from Missouri State Senator to a concerned citizen that read:

Ms. ______,

My name is ____ ____ and I am the Chief of Staff for Sen. ___ ____. The senator asked me to write to you in response to your email about certain courses being offered at the University of Missouri. I would recommend that the best course of action for concerned citizens would be to contact the Board of Curators for the University of Missouri System, the contact information for which I have included below. Regarding your request that we investigate a means to strip funding, the Senate had already passed the budget for Higher Education a week before we received your email, making this course of action impossible for the upcoming fiscal year.

University of Missouri Board of Curators

316 University Hall
Columbia, Missouri 65211
Phone: (573) 882-2388
Facsimile: (573) 882-0010
E-mail: boardofcurators@umsystem.edu

Really??? Why the heck is the Senator also not a “concerned citizen”?  Is the Senator above it, or is this just a wishy-washy non-response?  This Senator in particular happens to be my Senator.  So the phones are about to get hot.

For the record, that last sentence by the COS is complete bullhonkey.  Lt. Governor Peter Kinder addressed both the House and Senate floors nearly 3 weeks ago on this issue (see below)

In the mean-time, here’s the latest on the story, and what you can do to ensure that we put a stop to the infiltration of communist indoctrination in our tax-dollar funded schools:

UMSL’s statement from yesterday
The video montages off the classes: http://insurgentvisuals.com/
Highlights of the videos: Tony Pecinovsky (MO/KS Communist Party leader) recruiting for the communist party IN THE CLASS and with the support of the professors.
* Both professors advocating fear and intimidation tactics and laughing about a ceo Giljum scared so bad he was in fear for his life. * Gleeful discussions of inciting riots and destroying police cars. * Gleeful discussions on HOW TO DESTROY NON-UNION BUSINESSES. Advocacy of violence as a strategic tactic.
Kinder, on The Dana Show expressing outrage.
And just incase you’re as fired up as I am about this, here are a few more people you might want to “enlighten” regarding this filth:
Here’s the Higher-Ed Committee website

Chairman: Mike Thompson
Chairman: David Pearce
Other relevant committees:
Gubernatorial Appointees  Chaired by Rob Mayer
Governmental Accountability Chaired by Jim Lembke
In Liberty, we find Victory!  Now, get busy!
