My wife is at this very moment is outside mowing the lawn. My job. I feel totally helpless. I can't do anything around the house while my neck heals for fear of literally breaking it and of course dying from it. If I wanted to commit suicide now would be an easy time for me to do so. And of course I do not.

I did find some humor in it though as I watched Karen maneuver the lawnmower around some tight spots in the yard . I noticed that she was sticking out her toung. I giggled. I didn't know that she was one of those that had to have her toung out to work the hard stuff.

Subj: COMMON SENSE - Balancing Act
Date: 5/8/2004 6:01:16 AM Eastern Standard Time


"Balancing Act"

We find ourselves in the middle of an election year,
and, because of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance
law, in a muddle.

While Democrats took the lead in arguing against soft
money, it is Democratic groups that are now using
what other Democrats call a loophole to raise and
spend large, unregulated contributions to defeat
President Bush. For instance, Congressman Marty
Meehan, term-limits turncoat and author of the Don't-
Criticize-Your-Rulers Act, argues these groups should
also be regulated -- er, silenced -- by the FEC.

"To do nothing," he wrote to the FEC, "would be to
bless a loophole that will have grave consequences."
Huh? Freedom of speech used to be a part of the
Constitution. Now it's a loophole.

But Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi and 121
other Democrats signed a letter to the FEC saying
that the "proposed rules severely undermine" the
balance between regulation and free political
expression, which they point out also has
"potentially severe consequences."

The problem -- in the minds of these Democratic
congressmen and, more importantly, in our legal
system -- is this idea that our First Amendment
rights are to be balanced against the compelling
state interest in regulating elections.

Nowhere in the Constitution does it allow, or even
suggest, that our rights can be "balanced" against
the desires of career politicians to take away those

The First Amendment is explicit that Congress shall
not regulate speech. How do we balance that against
the politicians' desire to regulate what's said about
them? In a better world, we don't.

Ok Now here is my 2 cents worth. The don't bad mouth our congressmen laws are unconstitutional and therefore unlawful. Let me prove it too you.

Congressman Marty Meehan is a devil and unworthy of the kingdom of heaven and has no say whatsoever in any thing that is in governement, further more he needs to be sensured and any congressman who participates put on a black list so that he no longer propegates his version of democracy. If I wasn't a christian I would use every explitive in my repetoir to describe him as a miscreant. Nya nya nya stupid laws. Ya can't get me. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I got this link through Old whig to the moderate voice of Joe Gandelman.which it turns out was written by Larry Elder at Town
The curious lack of curiosity about WMD:

Week after week after week after week,' said Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., about President Bush's rationale for going to war with Iraq, 'we were told lie after lie after lie after lie.' Were we?

Jordan recently seized 20 tons of chemicals trucked in by confessed al Qaeda members who brought the stuff in from Syria. The chemicals included VX, Sarin and 70 others. But the media seems curiously incurious about whether one could reasonably trace this stuff back to Iraq. Had the terrorists released a 'toxic cloud,' Jordanian officials say 80,000 would have died.


The News media and the democrats and the dope head leftists are the leftwing demon conspiracy the right is afraid of. Oh, and by the way don't say I didn't tell ya so.

Right Conservative Republican Christian

Yes I am a part of that Right wing conservative Christian conspiracy that the left dope mongers are afraid of.
Actually I think that they are afraid of their eternal future and don't know it yet.

We give thanks to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

Col 1:4 having heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have toward all the saints,

Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;



The following is a poem written by Judge Roy Moore from
Judge Moore was recently sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama. If this can happen in the Bible Belt, freedom is next.


America the Beautiful, or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride; I'm glad they'll never see
Babies piled in dumpsters, abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand.
Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine,
Choosing to indulge their lusts, when God has said
From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love and a need to always
So many worldly preachers tell lies about our Rock,
Saying God is going broke so they can fleece the flock.
We've kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool, and Heaven is His throne.
We've voted in a government that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges who throw reason out the door,
Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.
You think that God's not angry that our land's a moral
How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes?
How are we to face our God, from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do, but stem this evil tide?
If we who are His children, will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face and mend our evil way:
Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land and those who live within.
But, America the Beautiful, if you don't then you will
A sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from Thee.
~Judge Roy Moore

Let's lift Judge Moore up in prayer. He has stood
needs our support.
"Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above
Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things
to be
I hate every false way." (Psalms 119:127-128)


My comment on the matter is that the U.S. has ceased to function as a Democracy in 1963 and has functioned as a Demoncracy ever since. Therefore no Jesus no freedom externally. Have you people ever noticed that we don't have the freedom we had back then. Poor kids today don't even know what they are missing.


One of the frustrating things about neck surgery is that it is so sensetive that I am not allowed to work for 12 weeks.

That is going to hurt our finances.

With the accompaning medical expenses. I think I need to beg.
I am not ashamed so here is my home address.

Thank you for your support.

God Bless.

Update neeeeeeeck surgery again

OK! What now?

!@#$%%$# I got pneumonia. Probably from lying around so much and not being active enough to keep them clear. Luckily I noticed something was wrong and mentioned it to my doc. yesterday and he sent me to get an ex-ray.

I got an appointment today to probably get a anti-biotic regemin and mabey a bronchio-therapy schedual although I hope not. It aint bad yet don't mean that it can't get bad. I have my own home remedies which I have relied upon for a biblical generation to keep me healthy so I'll also hit that hard.
Don't ask for my home bronchial remedies as I have no intention of revealing them. (YOU might think them weird or dangerous worse they might be dangerous). I'll let you know if I'm on my death bed with a hallelujah I'm going home blog.

Neck Surgery

I thought I would give a little update on my neck.

I wish I could make fun of it but it is a little harder to laugh through the pain medication. I have 11 more weeks of incredible boredom. In the healing process of which some of it is physical therapy. bleah. Compared to football and swimming workouts that will be a bore too.

So anyway here is what they do. The cut an incision in the front of your neck (on my right side) all the way to the spinal column, remove all the disc and them go down to your hip in my case my left one cut a hunk out of it and fill the gap between the vertebrate which will then act as a bridge allowing bone to grow hence the fusion part. Since we have 7 vertebrate in our necks I will loose approximately 1/7 the range of motion in my neck.


My neck hardly hurt either in the front or at the spinal column. I have been acutely aware to be extremely careful with my neck since especially for the first 4 weeks or so my head will technically not be (except for 4 screws and a titanium plate) attached.

My hip hurt like it was broke or something which is true. But I have broken bones before and I knew what to expect. I guess I surprised the therapist when I got up and walked around without the cane. Gimped would be more like it. Been gimping ever since.

What caught me by surprise was when my brain figured out that their were parts of my body it had forgotten about,my upper shoulder, laterals, triceps, and muscles about half the way down my back And decided to cramp them up all at once. Now that hurt. I couldn,t breathe but in grunts. They cramped so hard that some of them have pulled loose I am pretty sure of that.
I found the solution in two shots of pain pills and two of muscle relaxers and ice packs on my back for two days. I did nothing but sleep yesterday.

Well just thought I would put a little in here so you'all wouldn't think I had fallen of the earth or something.
