Deep Thoughts

Good evening my readers--or should I say good morning? Yes, it is very late for Spencer, and I'm about to go to bed now.

Maybe I'm low on sleep, maybe I'm tired (well, both are true actually...), but I said the below statement in a rather deep email to a friend tonight. For an equally strange and unexplained reason, I'm posting it here. Who knows why! I certainly don't. Maybe I'm just nuts.

"The day will come when I finally get to my guns, and when I do, I tell you, the whole world will shake as I begin my war."

I expect my closest blog friends will understand my meaning quite clearly (to clarify for those who don't, I'm not being cocky or full-of-myself, and I don't mean violence.) I was referring to my life the past few years (as well as my life to come). Back then, I was flush with success, having rapidly attained some small goals that would clearly lead to my big goals (I was taking steps to complete two of my three life goals). Just as quickly, my life collapsed not long after, and soon I was clinging to one last little life preserver, until that too, sank.

I will not lie to you all. It is true when I tell you that I have none of the things I had at that time of my life. Does that mean I've given up?

No.

Until the time comes, until God tells me I'm ready, I will wait. Perhaps this was all His doing. For one, through this trial of mine I've learned more about the nature of this war and more about how to wage it. I've learned more about myself (and more), and was also tested to my breaking point. (Just to tell you, I never did.) I hope you all understand I'm humble when I say this, but really, it's something when you know you did what you had to do, did all that you could do. I may not have won, but at least I fought.

This isn't yet over. Do I have what I want? No...at least not yet. While I truly try not to get wrapped up in what "I" want, I do know that I was put here for a purpose. I believe I know that purpose; if I am wrong, and am meant to serve another, then the taste of victory will be no less sweet.

We were all put here for a reason unique to each and every one of us. Please join me in the war that was, is, and is to come. I will continue to fight the small battles offered me, until I can fight the way I believe I was designed to. I will continue to step forward, will continue to spit in the face of my obstacles (while learning from them in due turn). This is what there is. Why run from it in cowardice? Face it, fight it, and all will be well.

I'm not finished yet, nor will I be until my death. God willing, I hope to cause the Devil a whole world of trouble before I ever retire.

UPDATE: UN CEDAW status

According to my sources, the status is still up in the air. Don't let this extra time go unwasted, kiddies. If you haven't called already, do so! This may be a busy weekend for everyone, but what's five minutes, really? (Leave a message if you must, or email! Just speak!) See my original post for all necessary info. Nothing short of victory must be our mandate.

I will keep you all updated. Pray, please!

DHS and TSA compiling list of names of all who oppose

Pick me, pick me! I had better be on this list, with the rest of my friends! I'd be downright ashamed not to be!

Here's to a little domestic extremism, American style!

North Korea's military - a brief overview

This useful CNN article is worth a read. It's got an overview of the North's military, recent events, etc., and check this quote out:

China says it continues to be open to military collaboration with Pyongyang and last month welcomed a senior North Korean official to Beijing to "enhance coordination of the two militaries."


As in the first war, North Korea can be defeated. The issue lies with China. China turned the tide in the North's favor 60 years ago, and they can do it again with even more success this time around.

Why?

Because of how in bed with China our country has become (what, having been sold out by enemies not foreign, but domestic). Stop for a moment and think about just how much China can hurt America, even just economically (we're not even talking about the war aspect here). It makes me want to spit.

Again, keep your eyes pealed and ears perked, kids.

ALERT: United Nations CEDAW: Open assault on everything we believe in

Greetings my readers,

I need everyone's attention on this one, so please, listen up.

Sorry I'm late on this; I hope it isn't too late to call now. As of this afternoon, I was able to make my calls (one attendant even asked me before I got a word out, "Are you opposed to CEDAW?"), so it was at least undecided then.

It's called the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Anti-women ideology is something I particularly hate; few things disgust me more. So might I be in favor of this international treaty? Should you be?

The answer is as easy as one word: NO! Let me tell you why; please bear with me. This is some of the most important information you've heard in a while.

First and foremost, you need to get informed on this issue, and fast. See this article here; please check it out, it's quick and informative.

Second, I have a copied-pasted email from PRO below (yes, the good folks at ParentalRights.org are making moves on this issue as well, due to its massive implications on all families everywhere); it has the calling information.

Third, if you aren't convinced yet, let me condense the issue for you. Or rather, let me allow Michael Farris to condense the issue for you, via an excerpt of the article.

The Preamble of the CEDAW treaty boldly proclaims: “A change in the traditional role of men as well as the role of women in society and in the family is needed to achieve full equality between men and women.”

That is not the only megalomaniacal goal of this treaty. Its Preamble also calls for a “new international economic order” and “general and complete disarmament” both of which are deemed necessary to “contribute to the attainment of full equality between men and women.”

It is a “modest” agenda. Restructuring the family. A worldwide socialist economy. Total disarmament. All neatly packaged in a handy little treaty on women’s rights.

The UN CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women)


A "complete disarmament" (this time, they actually came out and said it). A reversal of Biblical family life, a reversal of Biblical family roles. An enforced feminist and socialist agenda. All conducted from the oversight of the United Nations (which means the sacrifice of American sovereignty). Is this what you want?

If that doesn't convince you, then nothing will. I don't know the status of CEDAW as of Friday night/tonight, but perhaps some calls Monday morning are in order? (And how about some prayer, as well?)

After all, it's only everything that's at stake.

And here's the original PRO email, with accompanying calling information:

The United Nations’ Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) is being considered today in a Senate foreign relations sub-committee hearing. ParentalRights.org urges you to call your senators and instruct them to oppose this treaty.

Here is a link to Michael Farris’ paper regarding the dangers of CEDAW, in which he warns, “Feminist internationalists intend to use international law to coerce the restructuring of the institution of the family and the role of every man and every woman on the planet.”

Understand, this is not the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), of which we have been warning you for so long. Like that treaty, however, CEDAW seeks to establish U.N. authority over American domestic law, and to redefine forever the role and function of the family in American society. Like the CRC, CEDAW also contains obligations far beyond its beneficent title. And like the CRC, CEDAW is part of a net of international human rights treaties which strengthen and play off of each other, so that ratification of any one leads in part to the adoption of all the others.

For instance, the CRC’s aim to make “reproductive health services” an undeniable right of adolescent girls regardless of parental involvement would be realized just as securely through ratification of CEDAW as it would through ratification of the CRC.

Perhaps most dangerous, the CEDAW committee has claimed, just as the CRC committee has, that their convention is a “dynamic instrument,” and that the committee has the ability over time to clarify the broad obligations of the treaty with an increasing degree of specificity as they progress toward their own world-wide agenda.

While the ratification or defeat of CEDAW is not the primary focus of ParentalRights.org, we must acknowledge that its ratification would be damaging to parents in the United States, while its defeat would be a victory for ourselves and for our allies.

So please, take a moment and read Michael Farris’ article here.

Then, call your senator if he is on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Human Rights Law, or chairman Senator Durbin if yours is not. Urge them to oppose ratification of CEDAW and any other U.N. human rights treaty.

The members of the Subcommittee on Human Rights Law include:

Richard Durbin (IL), Chairman: (202) 224-2152
Russell Feingold (WI): (202) 224-5323
Benjamin Cardin (MD): (202) 224-4524
Chris Coons (DE): (202) 224-5042
Arlen Specter (PA): (202) 224-4254
Al Franken (MN): (202) 224-5641
Lindsey Graham (SC): (202) 224-5972

Senators Tom Coburn (OK) and John Cornyn (TX) are also on the subcommittee but do not need to be called, as they both oppose CEDAW already.

Sincerely,

Michael Ramey
Director of Communications and Research


So please, take a moment to call on Monday (or, if you like, leave voicemail messages over the weekend). If you do call, then I thank you heartily, and I'd ask you to please let me know in the comments section. If you do not comment, I will have to assume that you did not call.

Also, I beg you all to please tell everyone you know about this, ASAP, via whatever method you choose (blogging, email, facebook, twitter, or anything else you use).

Let's cut off this viper's head, shall we?

WARSKYL: Sharia Law in the U.S.?

You just gotta love what goes on in America these days.

First of all, two different law systems cannot work. One will have to go, or all be chaos. So which, if any, is being planned for the discard heap?

Second, who is promoting this in the United States? A judge? Who else? The American public deserves to know who, or what, is actively working to undermine all that is American . (That's not to mention everything else such things are diametrically opposed to. Christianity, anyone?)

I can tell you this, and I know I'm not at all alone. The day anyone comes to cover the heads of my women with burkhas, if it does indeed ever come to that, I can tell you this: the gloves are off.

An Open Letter to Christopher Nolan

Dear Christopher Nolan,

You have shown the world, and Hollywood itself, that you don't have to sacrifice anything to make a successful film. You've made countless millions of dollars with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. You made great films, with great actors, great plots, great scripts, great production values, and an overall shroud of great greatness. (For one, you made myself, a superhero-hater, love these two movies to death.)

You've successfully captured a story of the way of the warrior, manhood, and some plain chivalry, and through all of this you've shown debauched Hollywood that you don't have to sacrifice on morality to make a good flick. Indeed, I'd say that The Dark Knight was one of the most morally-guided blockbusters we've seen in I don't know how long.

You have no sex, very, very little language, and only an appropriate style and level of violence. You've kept the correct viewpoint in mind (Batman is the good guy, and therefore must only do good, as well as all other good guys [and if they don't always do good, you correctly show said actions to be bad]; The Joker, is evil, and is therefore the bad guy, as are all other bad guys), and on top of all this you've given every thinking viewer decades worth of deep thought and discussion. And, what's more, you've wrapped it all up in a convincing, realistic package. (No Joel Schumacker or Spider-man here!)

But I must say this. Whether or not you will ever see this, Mr. Nolan, I'm compelled to ask you not to change anything in your next Batman installment. That's right. That's all I'm asking. Give us the same brand o' stuff we got before. You're talented enough to give us an amazing, fresh, new-feeling movie with all the twists and turns the fans expect without sacrificing the morality of the first two films.

- If you add sex, you will surely lose me (and no doubt other viewers).
- If you add any unbridled unrealism, you will lose me (yes that means Clayface!).
- If you add an inappropriate level of mystical/false religious content, you will again, surely lose me. (You did it right with R'as Al Ghul; normally the character is immortal, but you made him just a man.)

Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are just fine the way they are. Don't change the third one. Trust me, you've already succeeded with this. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Sarah Palin Attacks Our Side

First things first: I never supported, nor voted, for Sarah Palin (and neither did I support those who were undyingly opposed to her). Just to start us off, I'm of the "neanderthal" opinion that a woman shouldn't run for public office.

Second, I don't particularly appreciate it when me and my people are assaulted as somehow less than human (because that's exactly what Palin's words infer). So let's take a look at what she said; click on the link, you can either watch the video or read the transcript (or both).

We see that Sarah Palin is a strong feminist (what, are you surprised?), and that Sarah Palin believes me, and also those who believe as I do, to be "neanderthals" who need to "evolve". I remember hearing, two years back, that Palin supported the Creationist view of things, at least in public school classrooms (whether or not this was true). Now we have her verbally assaulting thousands of strong Christians, using Evolutionist terminology. We're "neanderthals" (commonly considered less highly evolved than true humans), and we need to "evolve". Sheesh, Sarah, couldn't you at least insult me with fair terminology? She can't just say she disagrees with me; no, I'm a neanderthal, and before coming to the table of The
Equality of Humanity, I must evolve first. Really, Sarah?

So, to those who support Palin, I would ask them to please look at her own statements. She's a feminist who is attacking conservative Christians, and, at the very least, she's using Evolutionist terminology to do so (it makes one wonder what she really believes about origins?).

Thanks goes to olde.fashioned, who found Doug's post before I did.

Twitterness? (Shoutbox, actually)

Okay, kids. I need some help.

Ever see those "shoutboxes" or whatever on other blogs? I think I might like to get one; where is a good one to put here, and might my readers like it?

It's sort of a Twitter-esque sort of thing, but to be fair, I've been thinking about a shoutbox long before I ever figured out what "tweeting" was....

How do you socialize your children?

Great video; really, please watch it, it's well worth it (Thanks, Catherine R!). And if you're a homeschooler, this'll make you laugh for sure.



What I kept on thinking is that, at least for the current moment and the way the political winds are blowing just now, perhaps there is more to the term "socialize your children"?

I'm going to go out on a limb (what else is new?). I'm going to make the statement that perhaps it is not we (the homeschoolers) who are the misfits, it is them who are the misfits (the public schoolers).

What sayest thou, friends?
