After the adults prayer meeting was over I walked over to see the closing moments of AWANA, and the kids were so very unruly, rude and ill mannered and loud. With all due respect, this has been a real source of concern for most of the AWANA workers and helpers. And on the bus ministry that our church/ pastor started, some of the kids from the ghettos have verbally abused our leaders, drivers and staff with very COURSE, vulgar, language and cursing/ fighting! The pastor continues to ask the staff to be firm but patient and kind to the ghetto kids because their souls are on the line. He keeps telling the workers and staff that they are only "kids."
As you all know, I like and respect the pastor and obey him in all things that are biblically lawful. I know he has the best interests of everyone at heart. But I, personally could/ would NEVER volunteer for that teaching position, even though many say that I am a good teacher, and the pastor has acked for more muchneeded volunteers-- because I will just not tolerate such misbehavior/ mischief. Actually, some of the kids are sent home and asked never to return--as they are so bad with dirty, disrespectful mouths and habits. But some of them regardless of race are very nice and eager to learn and memorize the scriptures and love Jesus. My wife cracks the whip and stands for no foolishness... lol.
I guess that some of us just don't have the temperament for AWANA, etc, and many times it amounts to an hour of 'babysitting' while the parents are 'goofing around,' doing drugs, drinking, etc, and we all know that. Another 'sign of the times.' Oh well...
I wish I had more energy because our house is so messy and my wife lets everything stack up to the ceiling and procrastinates. I have another close friend who's wife is an immaculate house cleaner but she is so hard to get along with... lol. I would NEVER want a perfect wife-- because then she would only MAGNIFY all MY imperfections... Ha! I think that most men would be very satisfied with an average hard working woman who likes flowers, candy, a good rub down/ massage for her aching muscles, a pedicure and taken out for a good T-bone steak once a week...
Woo Hoo!! Dream on --Dream on--Dreamer...
Tomorrow morning I have to drive to Milwaukee VA to pick up some late meds. They are NOT reliable all the time...but then that's the VA and we are only disabled combat Veterans. If Obama wins-- we can expects things to get worse. Good Night.
Ever heard of the Bakken Formation?
GOOGLE it or follow this link. It will blow your mind. http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911
The U.S. Geological Service issued a r eport in April ('08) that only scientists and oilmen knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern Montana ... check THIS out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.
'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.
'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onsho re oil field found in the past 56 years,' reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U.S.oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough ha s opened up the Bakken's massive reserves... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years straight.
2. [And if THAT didn't t hrow you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO, people!]
U.S.Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World!
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006 Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush
mandated its extraction.
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:
-8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
-18-times as much oil a s Iraq
-21-times as much oil as Kuwait
-22-times as much oil as Iran
-500-times as much oil as Yemen- and it's all right here in the
Western United States.
HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this!? Because the democrats, environmentalists and left wing republicans have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil.
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels. Untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.
[Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it ... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:
3. Take 10 minutes and compose an e-mail; fax or good old-fashioned letter to all your friends and associates. Alert them to the fact that democrats and 'liberal' republicans have been and will continue to obstruct all plans to make America independent of foreign oil. The only solution is to vote all democrats and Marxist oriented republicans out of office.
If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.
