I am inspired...

I saw this ad today

Which prompted me to research Gianna Jessen - where I found this... and became INSPIRED and outraged at the same time.

Watch both videos - and tell me what you think - what God says to you by the time part 2 is over.

Oh, get some tissue before you watch them!



And some people are voting for the man who, if he had his way - would allow this amazing woman to have been put to death.

What type of MAN would think it is OK to kill an unborn child, but not Iraqi insurgents? Barack Obama leads the opposition to the "Born Alive Infants Protection Act", which is NOT opposed by, Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Rodham Clinton & NARAL.

Do you want that type of man to lead our country. Seriously. Think about it...

I have.

Obama's plan to redistibute the wealth explained.

A friend sent this story to me - it puts Obama's redistribution of wealth in easy to understand terms.

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money."

I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept.

He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside.

The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I 've decided he could use the money more.

The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

HSM3 - Come see my movie!

Try JibJab Sendables® eCards today!

Mr. Fantastik... is back!

You might remember this guy from "So you think you can dance". Yeah, he's the amazing popper that quit the first day in Vegas...

Nigel said he hopes that someone see's him and puts him in a commercial or a movie - well IKEA did!

He is amazing - my son is trying to emulate this guy - if you see Garhett, just watch him out of the corner of you eye - when he thinks no one is watching - he tries (nearly successfully) to move like this guy!

Have you ever wondered how the President is elected?

This is actually a pretty good video.

It is very, very basic - but it gets the point across.

BTW: here is the electoral college by state:

Yes on Prop 8 - takes the lead in the polls

Have you seen the newest ad for Yes on proposition 8? I know if you have a Tivo or DVR you probably skip past the hundreds of political ads - but you should see this one.

According to the recent polls - Prop 8 is now favored to win.

My son walked a precint to get out the message on this proposition and much to my surprise the majority of homes we visited were in favor of it passing. In fact, one inter-racial couple told me that they applied for a domestic partnership (which the woman had with her previous male domestic parter) and were told that domestic partnerships are for same-sex couples only and they would have to seek a marriage license! She is outraged - I haven't confirmed that this is the case - but it stands to reason.

Even a log-cabin Republican website is stating that the "yes" ads dwell on the fact that it was 4 activist judges that overturned 61% (4,300,000) of the peoples popular opinion.

Here are the facts:


Proposition 8 protects the people’s will and overturns activist judges.
In 2000 over 61% of Californians (4 million voters) voted in favor of Proposition 22 to reaffirm that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. However, because this language wasn’t put into the state Constitution when it was approved, four activist judges from San Francisco wrongly overturned the people’s vote. In November 2008, Proposition 8 gives California voters the opportunity to reverse the court’s decision and restore the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman in the state Constitution.

B=BENEFITS - Proposition 8 is about preserving marriage; it’s not an attack on the gay lifestyle.
Proposition 8 doesn’t take away any rights or BENEFITS from gay or lesbian domestic partners. Under California law, "domestic partners shall have the same rights, protections and benefits" as married spouses. (Family Code §297.5.) There are no exceptions to this. Proposition 8 will not change this.

C = CHILDREN - Proposition 8 protects our children.

Prop 8 protects our children from being taught in public schools that "same-sex marriage" is the same as traditional marriage. . In health education classes, state law requires teachers to instruct children as young as kindergarteners about marriage. (Education Code §51890.) If the same-sex marriage ruling is not overturned, teachers will be required to teach young children that there is no difference between gay marriage and traditional marriage. (Children will be taught that having a mommy and a daddy is just the same as having two mommies or two daddies – it’s all equally good.)

Both parties say the same thing!

You children shouldn't be required to read this:

Unless you read it to them.

I just bought a tank... well, sorta

Dawn & I leave for Hawaii in 3 days - we are going to be Kayaking, Hiking, Snorkeling, Horseback riding, Swimming in Waterfalls and lounging on the beach - so I thought, we better get a new camera that can take that kind of abuse...

So after much searching I found this one...

Here is a review of the camera...

As the reviewer says, it is a TANK. It is the all terrain vehicles of cameras. So far, I like it alot - You can be the judge when I post pictures when we get back!

CNN finds proof that Ayers/Obama/Wright are closer than they said.

Obama has no executive experience - so he is going to surround himself with *good* people - yeah right.

13,000 Rally for Sarah Palin!

The heels are on and the gloves are off! 13,000 supporters swarm Home Depot Center to show their support for Sarah Palin and the "McCain/Palin" ticket today October 4, 2008.

I was privilaged to receive general admission tickets to the rally courtesy of Angela Lasch [Thank you very, very much!]. We were all very excited to attend the Rally and much to our surprise, Garhett's American Government Teacher, Robyn Nordell, had 3 VIP tickets which she raffled off at the end of class last week. Garhett won them!

So the Bambricks, Laschs, Platts and Peters headed out to the Rally today to celebrate with Sarah! Dawn, Garhett & I sat in the VIP section just above the entrance area where Sarah and others entered the stage. I jokingly said we could smell Sarah's perfume from where we sat.

The lines were long to get in, the wait was long to be screened by the Secret Service, the weather was wonderfully subdued by the presence of overcast clouds and a light smattering of drizzle throughout the day. God really must like Sarah to provide a 'cooler' day for her. In fact, the weather held until the end of the Rally when a short but heavy shower doused the parking lot as we inched along our path to leave.

The Rally was broken into 3 sessions, the first was a welcome and spin up by local representatives, 2 from the OC, Dana Rohrabacher and Ed Royce (from my district). It was very nice to see them speak - Ed Royce (the incumbent in my district) is a spitfire!

Second session was Hollywood and political representatives. All the guest speakers were entertaining - nothing new. John Voight took the stage in support as well as others from the political arena.

The last session was Governor Sarah Palin, after being introduced by the current president of the National Organization of Women - yes, read that again... N.O.W.'s president endorses Sarah Palin! (although, you couldn't tell that from their website - I won't post a link to it because I don't support their agendas).

Immediately after taking the stage, Governor Palin told us about the quote that was on her Starbucks cup the other day - it was a quote from Madeline Albright (former secretary of state) that said, "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women".

See what happens when you yell, "Hey Sarah, give us a smile!"


Before entering, we had to enjoy hearing the drivel being spurt forth from the Obama supporters. Tim had enough and had to engage them - of course, as usual, once Tim started speaking FACTS to them, they had to leave. I think the quote Tim used in this photo was something like, "You're an idiot". Or something much less inflamatory. Tim is my hero today!

If you look you can see, Darrenn Platt, Michelle Lasch, Tim Lasch, Sharon Peeters, Chandler Lasch, Ashley Bambrick, Dylan Platt & Regan Lasch. This gang was sitting across the field from us so we could get a good photo of them!

Today was a GREAT day!

Here is a youtube video from CNN from today...
