FOR THE RECORD: Dear Friends and Readers, I just want to make clear that the main function of my Blog, TOM'S JOURNAL, is to help educate, reach out and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ-- my personal Lord and Savior, and the ONLY reason I have that grand hope of going to heaven [surely not my own deeds...]. But I still believe that it is my duty as a Christian in America to fight Gov't corruption and take the battle to the enemy. In my own small way I use my humble Journal as a forum [or gun platform-- just like a helicopter ] to expose crooked, slimy thieves and anti-American, anti- Constitution "people" no matter what 'party' they claim to represent. I used carnal weapons in combat while serving the Gov't/ Army in foreign lands in the '60's --- I use the pen now days, the phone, my PC, and my lungs to make my point clear, as long as God gives me life on earth.
I was listening to a missionary org on the Radio this morning while driving home from some chores and shopping concerning starting thousands of Christian churches in Africa and Asia. When the moderator asked about missions in Europe the gentleman said, " Europe is already LOST." They let so many Muslim immigrants into their respective countries that they are all but taken over now and most will have Sharia Law very soon!! Experts figure that America is usually about 5- 10 years behind Europe and CAN'T WE ALL SEE WHAT DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS GOING RIGHT NOW? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the HAND WRITING ON THE WALL! Mean while, the devil has most of us busy chasing our tails in this rat race of materialism or just maintaining the status quo. I am in the same boat and get tempted every single day-- sometimes being diverted, side lined, distracted by world events that are scary. My ONLY hope is in Christ and heaven. This 'earth is passing away.'
Grace to you.
Below is my small contribution [an example] to my State Rep., and his return comment/ reply.
Thank you for contacting me about taxpayer funding of ACORN.
Since I am a state representative I do not have jurisdiction to vote the federal funding of ACORN. That falls into the hands of your federal legislators who are Cong. Paul Ryan, Sen. Herb Kohl and Sen. Russ Feingold. If you haven't already, I would suggest you contact them to let them know your thoughts on this issue.
Upon receiving your email, I contacted the Legislative Fiscal Bureau to inquire if any state dollars fund ACORN. The Legislative Fiscal Bureau said there is no direct state funding that goes to ACORN. The Fiscal Bureau has also contacted every state agency to inquire whether any state agency provides funding to ACORN through grants, subsidies, contracts for services, or other forms of payment. Thus far, the Fiscal Bureau has heard back from 75% of the state agencies including the largest agencies (Department of Administration, Department of Health Services, and Department of Children and Family Services), and none of the agencies that have responded have provided funding for ACORN. I hope this information is helpful.

Please consider floating a bill NOW to end all money/ funds going to that illegal ACORN org. There is enough evidence to prove they are crooked, racist and guilty of illegal actions.
