1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

People who favor abortion, or any sin, put those things above or in front of God. By their actions, they refuse to accept that, God says,
1. His Word is true and forever;
2. There are those who corrupt His Word;
3. He alone creates us;
4. He alone gives us our spirit of life;
5. He alone knows who we are before He creates us in our mother's wombs, AND He knows our mission in life, i.e. who we will turn out to be;
6. He has very specific standards for humanity, that include NOT sacrificing our children, whether to idols or the false god of our own convenience;
7. He holds everyone accountable who violates His Word and His Law.
No wonder that abortionists, abortion supporters, and others who don't want to be accountable, prefer relativism instead of God's absolutes and standards.

Too many times, the "politically correct" rant their relativistic mantras and say that there are no absolute standards in life. They have waged a war against God and His Word. Yet, in their zeal and ignorance, the "politically correct" do not understand that they have already lost that war, because God says that there really are Absolutes, that good and evil really do exist according to His Standards. God, His Word, and our consciences, tell us to do what is morally and spiritually right. And, as the Bible affirms that Principle and our duties therein, likewise, our Constitution says that, for this society to work, EVERY citizen needs to be busy exercising our constitutional rights AND shouldering our constitutional responsibilities.
Whether some people like it or not, "Use it or lose it.", has always been one of God's admonishments to people everywhere, at least with regard to the good things and the missions which He gives to us. The first few verses of Jeremiah 49 are a slightly cryptic example of this principle, wherein God tells the Ammonites that their security is a false security in which they believe that the Jews will never displace them. But God assures the Ammonites that He will return the Jews to that land. Likewise, Jesus spoke boldly of God's call for everyone to repent and be ready for His return, as well as speaking of the talents God gives to people to use on their Master's behalf.
As one carefully reads our Founding Documents, one sees that our Founders had no problem acknowledging God and His handiwork in the formation of our Nation and its Founding Principles. Therefore, our God-given Constitution and Bill of Rights are no different from the biblical examples noted above, in that our Constitution and Bill of Rights are calls to freedom, duty, and responsibility. If we, the citizens of these United States of America, fail to accept, possess, support, defend, and abide by each and every bit of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights as they are formulated and stated in word and principle, then we shall continue to see those august Standards diminished and destroyed by the powers of evil that seek their own ungodly and unconstitutional ends.
Therefore, let's get busy, today, and every day of our lives, working to stop the destruction of our Constitution, our Rights, and our biblically and constitutionally based way of life. C'mon folks! Let's use all of it, before we lose all of it!
I salute THE Greatest Founder and His Greatest Plan. I bless Him for our Constitution and our Bill of Rights and all that comes with those Rights and Responsibilities.
Last night, Trump and Rubio set a very bad example for every American, and their misbehavior repeatedly reminded this blogger of young children down in the dirt pummeling each other bloody simply because they couldn't agree to work on how to learn to tie their shoelaces. This Nation CANNOT afford an egotistical, emotion driven president. Tied for the bottom four and five spots in last night's debate list, Trump and Rubio are now OFF my preferred candidate list, UNLESS they somehow end up as the ONLY GOP candidates left standing against Clinton, Sanders, Bloomberg, or any other socialist or attacker of our Constitution.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK! CHECK EVERYTHING that looks even the least bit suspicious. If you think THAT is hard, wait until you pass along things that damage your relationships and your reputation. Wait until you fail to investigate the malware that ends up costing you your identity and reputation.
It is EASY to start fact-checking what people send to you! Whatever search engine you favor, USE IT! Type "urban legends" in the search box, and include whatever topic you suspect of being bogus. It would look like this, "urban legends pick your suspect topic". Don't include the quotation marks themselves. I have even done searches like this on Google, "urban legends copy/paste a sentence or paragraph of text from some suspect document or forwarded email".

To my elected fellow citizens, servants of the People of Connecticut, in our State House and Senate,
It is with all due respect to your office, and our accountability before Almighty God, that I ask you to prayerfully consider my following comments.
Please work to ensure that NO legislation passes the Connecticut Legislature, that in any way infringes on our constitutional rights, including our constitutionally guaranteed right to due process of law.
Our State and Federal Constitutions mandate that there can be no search, seizure, imprisonment, forfeiture, or penalty without due process of law in which an accused lawful citizen has the right to face her/his accusers and, with legal representation, be heard in open court. That is what our State and Federal Constitutions say, even though there are many legal and quasi-legal attempts to circumvent those truths. Without constitutional due process of law, no one in our society has any rights.
I specifically ask you to defeat all attempts to pass legislation that approximates the lack of due process that is exhibited in CT HB5054. The fears of a few do not justify the violation of the rights of the many.
It is of no surprise that people who say that they believe in God use His name in holy or profane ways. After all, we claim to know God or about God. Yes, we believers act and speak in both sacred and profane ways. We struggle between our fleshly sin nature and our eternal spirit that God gave to us. (At least some of us are willing to admit to that struggle.)
On the other hand, as a whole, Atheists, whom I've met, seem to think that they are only accountable to themselves and/or other people. I find it fascinating that, despite their attempts to push God away and ignore their accountability to God, that they still use one name/description, or another, for God, whether they are making idle conversation, cursing, blaspheming, using profanity, or trying to argue against the existence of God. I used to do all those same "atheistic" things myself, because, for a LONG time, I did not want to believe in God...

On the other hand, YOU are NOT a dog in heat! You are a man or a woman with the free will that God gave you to choose good things over sinful things. Do you REALLY want to have the marks of lust and chaos on your spirit and reputation for the rest of your life? Believe me, unless you black out, you ARE going to remember most of your actions from the intense and chaotic Spring Break experiences. You may even have to live with flashbacks about things that you chose to do or that were done to you against your will. Furthermore, people get around a lot these days, and you may keep running into people with whom you interacted in some improper or destructive manner. Be assured, OTHER people ARE going to remember who you are and what you did during Spring Break... and that includes God remembering every single detail.

Every day, somewhere in our Nation, there are violations of our Bill of Rights, specifically, Amendments Four, Five, and Six to our Constitution. We hear cloaked descriptions of these violations in TV and radio news and talk shows. We read about such infringements in newspapers, blogs, and magazines. Yet, we numbly stumble along and allow the powers that be to continually violate our Rights, as they try to force us into submission to their unconstitutional ways of doing things.
Law-abiding citizens NEED to read our Constitution and stand up for what our Constitution says is right and for what is due process of law. Law-abiding citizens NEED to stand up against ALL ABUSES of power. If we fear to act against the ABUSES of evildoers and the powerful, then we have already quit before we engage the conflict that has already been brought to our doorstep and into our homes.
Let us not, therefore, fail to resist and to fight against those who infringe upon anything that our Constitution says is our Right. Our Founders added our Bill of Rights that we might live in freedom and respect towards one another.
Let us not dishonor our Founders. Let us not dishonor our Founding Documents. They went to war to secure this Constitution and these Rights for us. Let us continue to fight to preserve said Constitution and Rights, for that is the constitutional duty of every citizen of these United States of America.
We acknowledge, and mourn, the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He was a great champion of our U.S. Constitution. We offer our condolences to his loved ones.
With Justice Scalia's death, we have lost a great supporter and defender of our Constitution, and its plain language, yet, Justice Scalia's Court opinions continue to demand that we pay attention to our Constitution and that we cling to our Founding Documents and Principles. With Justice Scalia's passing, this time in U.S. history is becoming even more of a litmus test of whether U.S. citizens will get active and stay active to unite in demanding nationwide adherence to constitutional principles and godly character. Citizens of this Nation CANNOT AFFORD to be hasty to fill his vacant seat.
We, the People of these United States of America, must fully accept and embrace the language of our Constitution. We MUST reject anything and anyone that attacks our Constitution. We, the People, must NOT allow the Supreme Court to be further infiltrated by liberalism, socialism, or those who would, in any way, seek to alter the clear and specific language of our Constitution and its intents. We CANNOT AFFORD any Court Justice, who would render opinions contrary to the clear language and intents of our Founders, for our Founders accepted and subscribed themselves to our Constitution and to our Bill of Rights, for the benefit of us, their posterity.
We, the People, must NOT allow the present, or any, presidential regime to place anyone on the Supreme Court, unless the appointee is a staunch supporter and defender of the original language, intents, and principles of our Founding Documents. Our Nation CANNOT AFFORD ANY Supreme Court Justice who does not strictly adhere to the language and intents of our Constitution, because the constitutional job of Supreme Court justices is to test all laws to see whether the laws in question are conformed to and comply with the language and intents of our U.S. Constitution. Therefore, any SCOTUS Justice that fails to test laws against the Standard of our Constitution has already failed in her or his constitutional duty. Contrary to some popular opinions, it is NOT constitutionally legal for justices of that august Court, to use their esteemed offices to advocate for or against any issue, but rather that they are constitutionally mandated to prove all cases based on the specific language of our Constitution.
Since the U.S. Senate approves or rejects Supreme Court nominees, it is incumbent on ALL U.S. citizens to admonish their respective Senators to approve ONLY nominees who are willing to lay down their lives in support and defense of our literal Constitution, and to test all laws by the Standard that is our Constitution.

Are you afraid to share the good news about Jesus Christ? Or, are you offended by those who share the gospel of Jesus Christ in your community? Does it bother you when a pastor, a neighbor, a family member, a fellow worker, or a stranger vigorously tries to talk with you about our urgent need to repent and trust Jesus Christ before it's too late?
My friend, if the, above, gentle calls to the truth of God and His ways bother you, just wait till you're surrounded by the false and violent religion of those who practice Hijra, Sharia, and Jihad. If you are offended NOW, wait until invading Islam forces itself on you, your life, and your family.
Most people in these United States of America are clueless about the extent to which Islam and our own government have already gone to instill and cultivate Islam in our Nation. The forces of Islam are building and consolidating all around us, AND they are starting to turn up the religious pressure on communities into which their activists are settling.
Your tax dollars and mine are paying for this invasion! Our own government is aiding and abetting those who invade us, while our government bleeds our own citizens and destroys our constitutional rights.
Only an active, biblical, Evangelical faith in the LORD Jesus Christ will help you to face the truth and reality of what is here already, and to face what is coming. Our government has undermined biblical Christian faith and betrayed it through its marginalization of Bible believing Christians. Our government's immigration program failures have accelerated Islam's impact, as pointedly exemplified by what happened in the 9/11 attacks and in San Bernardino. I urge you to return to the true Christ and faith of the Bible, lest you find yourself bowing to Islam to try to save your head.
In contrast to Obama's immigration policy failures (which are successes for terrorists), the nation of Greece seems to be paying diligent attention to the refugee situation. How many U.S. citizens got the whole story when Greece was reported to have impounded over 50 TONS of ISIS-linked firearms that were marked as "furniture and refugee relief supplies", earmarked for Syrian refugees. Is THAT 50+ tons of ISIS-linked arms the kind of refugee support what we want to see surreptitiously delivered to ISIS sympathizers here in these United States of America?
The reader has to dig fairly deep in the associated links before one is able to find actual confirmation of how that shipment was labeled, and that it was purportedly going to Syrian refugees, but the substantiating evidence appears to be there. All U.S. citizens, and every responsible leader in our communities, need to be asking ourselves this question. How many more of these "refugee relief" deliveries are ISIS and other terrorist groups sending around the world to support the Islamic jihad that seeks to eliminate, by violence, all other faiths and all other cultures?

CCDL is one of many pro-rights organizations that are fighting numerous legal battles all across our Nation, on behalf of U.S. citizens and our Constitution. Here are a few of the pro-rights groups with which I interact regularly and which I recommend to those who want to know the truth about firearms, as well as what is going on in the pro-rights battles that law-abiding firearms owners and users face.
Connecticut Carry (CT Carry)
National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR)
National Rifle Association (NRA)
National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA)
US Concealed Carry Association (USCCA)

Virtually everyone knows that the USA is in the midst of a heated election year. I bless God that there are godly candidates who are fighting to support and defend our Constitution and our Rights.
But, there are also opposition candidates who have repeatedly attacked our Rights and our Constitution. That latter group is bent on driving a wedge of panic and ignorance deep into the public psyche of these United States of America. One of that opposition group's favorite propaganda themes is to repeatedly beat the broken and mistuned drum of gun control, rather than addressing the real causes of interpersonal and anti-social violence.
Do NOT be fooled by politicians' and anti-gun groups' fancy words about "Australian gun control". The following link discuses exactly what those terms mean and the implications of that kind of confiscatory governmental action.
We, the law-abiding citizens of these United States of America, have NO REASON to apologize for our God-given Rights or our Constitution. We, the People, have the constitutional obligation to support and defend our Constitution against all enemies and attackers foreign and domestic.
Senator Ted Cruz
Mrs. Carly Fiorina
Senator Marco Rubio
Each of these candidates have their special strengths, and each one of these offers our Nation far better leadership potential and track records than any candidate that has been or might be offered by the opposing party. Any of the rest of the conservative candidates who ran for the presidency, this year, are far better qualified in every respect than any opposing party candidate that might be offered to the public. Each of the conservative candidates that are running want to restore the full faith and intent of our Constitution and Law to our land. This is NOT the usual "law and order" dog-and-pony show that is being discussed by opposition party candidates.
Conservative candidates realize that our Nation will not be saved by more cops or laws. Conservative candidates fully understand that our Nation needs leaders and citizens who stand on and practice godly and constitutional Principles in everyday life. THAT understanding and adherence to Principle is what our Nation was based on, and THAT is the goal to which we need to return ourselves and our Nation.
Please work and vote to preserve the conservative principles on which our Nation was Founded. Starting with a personal and united return to the Bible and Constitution that God gave to us, THAT is our only hope of saving our Nation for our future generations.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
