Rep. Paul Ryan of WI does well.

Tom's Journal.

Praise to our Wisconsin, hard working State Rep., Paul Ryan!!
But we all know that our conservatives would have NEVER got their hearing/ meeting if it had not been bought by Senator-elect Brown's recent win in MA. Obama is trying to mend fences now that he HAS to 'be nice' for a while... lol. His total arrogance and condescending attitude lecturing the GOP at the meeting today was still insulting-- treating the conservative members as school boys, IMHO. Obama's pompous words remind me of King Belshazzar of ancient Babylon before the divine hand of God wrote on the wall... just before his down fall... lol. See Daniel 5: 24-31.

I USED TO BE TOO FULL OF MYSELF--leaking pride all over the place-- until the Lord 'straightened me out...' and helped me to fly right. Isn't it funny how humble people seem to avoid so much hurt, misery, and injury in their lives? In my opinion, serious Bible study is the best place to learn proper humility... but for most of us, it's still a daily struggle. Really, all my life's 'achievements' aren't worth a hill of beans compared to the riches and glory God will bestow on the Saved in Heaven! PTL.

Thank you, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, for your your hard, smart, fine work for all Americans who love Freedom and Justice! You got MY vote!

President Obama Highlights Ryan’s Roadmap

Obama recognizes Ryan’s efforts, calls reform plan a “legitimate” solution

Wisconsin’s 1st District Congressman Paul Ryan continues his push for alternative solutions, garnering praise from President Obama for putting forth his Roadmap for America’s Future. The President commended Ryan for his Roadmap proposal, calling it “detailed” and a “legitimate” plan to tackle our fiscal crisis. President Obama spoke at the GOP Retreat in Baltimore earlier today, and discussed entitlement reform and additional budget challenges with Ryan. Following the productive exchange, Ryan issued the following statement:

“President Obama proved to be an honest broker this afternoon in acknowledging our unsustainable fiscal path. The President highlighted a serious proposal to tackle our entitlement crisis. Reflecting the deteriorating economic and fiscal condition since first released in 2008, I put forward ‘A Roadmap for America’s Future 2.0’ earlier this week to fulfill the mission of health and retirement security, lift the crushing burden of debt, and boost jobs and competitiveness in the 21st century global economy.

“I applaud the President for rejecting his Democratic colleagues’ false ‘Party of No’ attacks. Tackling our economic and fiscal challenges require real solutions and serious dialogue. I look forward to working with the President on rising above the partisan attacks – and tackling our generation’s greatest challenges.”


President Obama: I think Paul [Ryan], for example, the head of the Budget Committee, has looked at the budget and has made a serious proposal. I’ve read it. I can tell you what’s in it. And there’s some ideas in there that I would agree with but there’s some ideas we should have a healthy debate about because I don’t agree with them.” The major driver of our long-term liabilities, everybody here knows, is Medicare and Medicaid and our health care spending. Nothing comes close. That’s going to be what our children have to worry about. Now, Paul’s approach, and I want to be careful not to simplify this, I know you’ve got a lot of detail in your plan, but, if I understand it correctly, would say, we’re going to provide vouchers of some sort for current Medicare recipients at the current level – No?

Congressman Ryan: No – we protect the program for Americans 55 and above [those in and near retirement]…

Obama: I understand – there’s a grandfathering in….That’s why I said I wanted to make sure that I’m not being unfair to your proposal. I just want to point out that I’ve read it, and the basic idea would be that, at some point, we hold Medicare cost per recipient constant as a way of making sure that that doesn’t go way out of whack, and I’m sure there some details…

Ryan: We increase the Medicare payments with a blend of inflation and health inflation. The point of our plan is, because Medicare as you know is a $38 trillion unfunded liability.

Obama: Right.

Ryan: It has to be reformed for younger generations because it won’t exist. It’s going bankrupt. The premise of our idea is look, why not give people the same kind of health care plan we here have in Congress? That’s the kind of reform we’re proposing for Medicare. [applause]

Obama: As I said before, this is an entirely legitimate proposal. …There is a political vulnerability to doing anything that tinkers with Medicare. And that’s probably the biggest savings that are obtained through Paul’s plan. And I raise that, not because we shouldn’t have a serious discussion about it, I raise that because we’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as well, you know, that’s the other party being irresponsible….

Green Beret, CMH recipient- Vietnam 1968.

Tom's Journal.

Not to thump my chest, but this is a true story that we can ALL be proud of [collectively] as Americans. I believe this happened BEFORE I got to the 240thAHC-- Aviation Company in Vietnam, as I was serving at that time in a different Aviation outfit in RVN one year before this incident with USARV on my first tour of duty. Every day dozens of battles took place-- but in different parts of that war torn nation, and years later we are still putting the pieces of the puzzle back together. Men and Metal were tested to the limits, and those of us who came home alive knew that we were special and unique. Not bragging -- just stating a cold hard fact. When the 'people who were protected' later sought public office, like obama, even in their gross ignorance/ inexperience, who now sit in the clean, air conditioned White House and act so arrogantly pushing their socialist agenda and APOLOGIZING FOR AMERICA -- we combat Veterans whistle in amazement at their lack of understanding in so many areas.... Ha!

About 30 years later, my wife and I attended a great Army Aviation Company Reunion at WRIGHT-PAT AFB in Dayton, OH, where the true stories were told and there was a 'Great Healing' of the Spirit of wounded soldiers with PTSD and many other challenges. There were many speakers there at the main dinner gathering, but I remember Joe "Ragman" Tarnovsky getting emotional [as we all did] when welcoming the son of the famed Green Beret, Roy Benevedez, the CMH recipient .... [Congressional Medal of Honor], who worked with our 240th AHC [
Assault Helicopter Company] from BearCat, Vietnam-- 1968. Some people have speculated that this story would later be made into a movie-- but what is left of those involved will always hold this story dear and with pride. Feel free to check this story out a few hundred times.

Iran is Not Sleeping.

Tom's Journal.

The way I see it, a good military intelligence report/ and personnel is worth more than hundreds of well trained soldiers. It has always been that way since Bible times and still is. General Joshua sent some slick soldiers to spy out the the cities and countries in the Promised land before he ran his military campaigns. Smart General! As I have posted many times-- I always enjoyed History [and the Bible IS pure, truthful History penned from divine inspiration from God Almighty]. What world power or country would wait around with their hands in their pockets when accurate news comes in that an enemy is massing it's troops at the border?

In Vietnam, the VC [Viet Cong- who usually wore black pajamas -- the enemy] would make a lot of coffins and ladders before their attack, and that was a SIGN of impending doom/ trouble. I remember that in my 2nd tour [1969-70] there was a mutually agreed 3 day Christmas 'cease fire' but we still flew helicopter recon and observed the VC used that time to build concrete bunkers. After the agreed holiday was over our gunships were unable to crack the bunkers with their rockets, and as I remember the Air Force had to come in and "lay an egg" -- use heavy bombs to destroy the enemy complex.

As obama gave his SOTU address last night, we laughed at all his BS [berry sap] baloney about using more "sanctions" against Iran. He still don't get it! KNOW YOUR ENEMY! Know his mind set and beliefs! They and other Islamic societies will always get 'under ground' shipments of commodities from Russia, China, etc, who have a 'vested interest,' money, products, trade and investments to undermine any so-called sanctions America might try to impose. Hey! Look at obama's track record in accomplishing things so far. What real promises has he kept and what good was his silver tongued, masterful talking / negotiating with the enemy? What experience did he bring to the table when he got elected? NONE! In my opinion, the "other candidate" was dirty and corrupt too, but I voted for John M, because he was the lessor of the two evils, and he supported Pro-Life, and the 1st and 2nd Amendments, etc. Oh well... we think and believe that God "permits" things to happen so as to bring about Bible Prophecy in the end run -- His Eternal Purpose.

And I tell you all that no matter who is in control/ in office when the stink hits the fan-- like a regional or global Cash/ Credit melt down, the result will still be the same-- total chaos and suffering... Christians included. My Mantra is the same: Pay off/ pay down your 'plastic' debt, live frugal, watch WHERE you invest your money, stock up on some commodities, and put all your trust in the Lord, Jesus Christ/ read/ study the Bible.

I am so glad that my wife is home so I can spoil her and treat her special. I enjoy her company and she is my constant friend. She has been on a kick now for the past few weeks reading and studying a book I gave her, "101 Last Days Prophecies." And she is writing a lot in her note book- study type of deal. There still ain't much on that stupid TV-Cable. I bought a wide flat HD screen TV 2 Summer
s ago, but there is so much repetition night after night, that it seems like a waste of time.

The air temp now is 4 degrees above zero in S.E. WI tonight. In case my 3 grown kids are reading this post, I love them all dearly, and will post a recent picture of my 2 beautiful grand kids soon.
Good Night.

Obama's SOTU message.

Tom's Journal.


Ha! All that expectation and HYPE about obama's SOTU speech was over rated and another big bag of wind and lies again. Hey! I heard his words and promises one year ago and nothing happened except evil and lies. He was just as arrogant and full of himself tonight, as usual. But what really made me uncomfortable was how he insulted/ scolded the Supreme Court Justices in front of Congress and everyone!! As far as I know, that total disrespect has never happened before in front of Congress and the American public [and the whole world], and what a poor example and shame, IMHO ! Well, I don't want to spend any more time giving my personal opinion about some folks like obama that will never change. But I was just wondering 'what god' he was invoking at the end..... certainly not the Christian God of the Bible. If God DOES choose to help/ bless America, I am sure that He will have to get rid of the 'evil ones' that are trying their best to destroy our country from with in-- and gearing up for the One World Gov't.... obama and the Dims [and half of the RINO's too]. And Hey!-- I know that there are the 'two camps' -- schools of thought now days; some thinking that THEY can bring 'God's Kingdom' to earth by political means, but I am still from the Old School, waiting for the Lord to come. So shoot me if you are filled with arrogant hate and myopic thinking. Send me "Home"... Ha!

My son called me just to talk, visit and ask for advice on finance, etc., so I gave him my opinion on that subject-- and told him that sometimes life and finance was a struggle and learning process for me too. For many people, "plastic" is a demon with all kinds of temptations and snares. BEWARE! I THOUGHT that the obama Gov't was going to 'deal' with the credit card companies to stop their over charging in penalties and fees/ rip offs .... duh ! I believe it's a' legal way to rip off the working class.' It all goes back to basic [untaught] knowledge of "Compound Interest" and the 'Rule of 72.' And yes, it is very dry, boring material-- but so important to our well being and survival these days. Hmmm, how to swim with the sharks.... Sometimes I think that it's as dangerous as dealing with the devil. Money can be the master or the slave. I didn't learn this stuff until about age 45, after I fell down a few times and 'bloodied' myself. The trouble is: That MOST kids/ offspring will NOT listen to their experienced, battle torn parents who know the truth about "plastic" / credit cards. Shame.
If some of you think that you would like my personal advice about this subject -- email me.

Some folks are just wondering why and how only Port Au Prince, Haiti, got all the damage-- and not the rest of the island, and no tidal wave or tsunami... Is something strange brewing? I am not the expert -- just curious, and reading some articles about Haiti being a channel/ conduit for laundering money and shipping drugs.

It seems like that Sharon and I are pretty much caught up with our house work and chores, and she made a good sirloin beef roast with many carrots, onions, and veggies. I just love all veggies and that is why we get so much enjoyment out of our veggie garden in the Summer. We share the produce from our garden with our church friends and close relatives, of course. Carolyn loves gardening too.
Maybe I can get my friend, Marvin, help get my steel table over to my back porch, that I welded last year. So many of my Vietnam Veteran buddies are disabled and dying these days, and I have worked with them for years at Chrysler and hate to lose them-- but I firmly believe that they will be in a 'much better place' after they leave and I shall see them again. Atheists, agnostics, false religion [those who refuse to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior] don't have that hope or promise, and rightly so.

Time to let the hound out--into the cold night so he won't wake us up in the middle of the night. He is especially hungry lately, and I want him to have a little insulation and a heavy Winter coat. What a handsome, intelligent, 'papered hound' [pure bred animal].

Conservatives Pulling out the Megaphones

Cating Off Darkness--Recall takes Hold.

Tom's Journal.

It seems like the public may just be starting to catch on concerning the illegal White House activities that are against the U.S. Constitution. Wow! Well, such things might materialize next November, if the world is still intact at that time. Is also seems like only God can turn a dark, stormy cloud into something that will bring people to their senses and into the fold--'before the big rain comes down.' In the mean time, Christians MUST stay awake!

I for one grow weary of the constant struggle and also standing on 'gun watch' trying to stay awake and watch for the Lord. Even in RVN, below E-5, we had to pull guard duty sometimes [at night, of course] and then fly in our helicopters the next day without getting any sleep. I guess the gutsy Infantry had it much worse then us, and I respect them very much -- but I didn't have a choice when the Army sent me to Aviation school in Ft. Rucker, Alabama in late 1967. I tried to make up for the loss of sleep the next day by going to bed early-- but the barracks was so noisy with talk and loud music.... Ha! Talk about guys coming home after a year of combat and sleep deprivation.... that is one of the MOST desired things that we never got enough of -- SLEEP! Being retired is so fine. PTL.

More conservative talk/ radio shows warn now of being too complacent after the Sen. elect Brown of MA got elected. The hated 'quality' called ARROGANCE is what people dislike most about politicians, especially obama. It's bad enough that he cheats and lies to the American people, but then he struts around like a peacock.. or that TV cartoon character, Fog Horn Leghorn [Rooster]. Every time I get too proud or arrogant, the Lord beats me with a 2 by 4 piece of lumber to get my head back on track, but He does it out of love. Hebrews 12: 5b, "My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him: [6] For whom the Lord loveth He chastenth, and scourgeth every son whom he recieveth." KJV. If that is hard to understand-- check out the NASB or another rendition, please. The meaning is: It's like a loving parent telling/ instructing the child NOT TO PLAY IN THE BUSY STREET-- for fear of a car running the kid down. The Father in Heaven would rather have us slightly injured and go to heaven -- rather than let us go down the wrong path, with the wrong company, and end up in Hell. That seems simple enough, right?
The Proverbs are full of fine advice for parents NOT TO SPARE THE ROD... and spoil the child, and that loving discipline is NOT abuse. How ever some parents do abuse their children. We will always be His children and continue to learn.

Wisconsin is due for some chilly, windy weather this week. Time to fill up the gas tank and snuggle up with your soul mate/ spouse.

Casting Off Darkness - Recall Takes Hold

Jesus talked about Hell more than Heaven.

Tom's Journal.

Also... if you deny the flood in Noah's time-- you are calling Jesus a liar! Read Luke, chapter 3 where Jesus traces his genealogy all the way back to Adam. But then most so-called Christians in the world are really 'CHINO's' --- "Christians in name only..." , not that I am anything special. I am just a poor, good for nothing slave, sinner, and servant of the Lord. But it's like anything else in real life-- you get only reap what you sow. I had so much to learn about God and the Bible when I was searching for the truth in 1970 at age 21, but I soaked up that knowledge like a sponge and read/ studied daily. Once you get 'Saved' and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior-- your whole life is changed, and most of your stress and worries just fall off your shoulders and heart.


Dismiss Hell and You Dismiss Jesus

Posted: 24 Jan 2010 10:04 PM PST

My blog posts on the Haiti earthquake have generated some great comments, both on the blog and on my Facebook site. I've read them all and benefited, so thanks to many of you.

One comment, however, took things in a different direction, raising the subject of Hell. (This wasn’t the issue in the Haiti discussion, but I want to address it now as a new subject.) Someone wrote to the commenters who were discussing God’s judgment of people:

You seem to be missing the big point here—the complete absurdity that God hurts people for any reason! Jesus told us God is not like the pagan deities who tortured people in Hades, but that he is forgiving, loving, and caring. If one is willing to look, there's substantial evidence contained in the gospels to show that Jesus opposed the idea of Hell. True, there are a few statements that made their way into the copies of copies of copies of the gospel texts which place “Hell” on Jesus’ lips, but these adulterations came along many decades after his death.

This comment is misinformed. The truth is that the oldest and most reliable biblical manuscripts include Christ’s explicit statements about Hell. The gospel writers didn’t make up their Lord’s words in the gospels. They simply recorded them. And the hyper-careful scribes didn’t add them to the manuscripts, they simply copied them, word for word, from one to another.

The truth is that Jesus spoke more about Hell than anyone else in all of Scripture. (Because of its importance, I devoted a chapter of my book If God Is Good to the subject of Hell.) Jesus referred to Hell as a real place and described it in graphic terms (see Matthew 10:28; 13:40–42; Mark 9:43–48). He spoke of a fire that burns but doesn’t consume, an undying worm that eats away at the damned, and a lonely and foreboding darkness.

Christ says the unsaved “will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12). Jesus taught that an unbridgeable chasm separates the wicked in Hell from the righteous in paradise. The wicked suffer terribly, remain conscious, retain their desires and memories, long for relief, cannot find comfort, cannot leave their torment, and have no hope (see Luke 16:19–3 1).

Our Savior could not have painted a bleaker picture of Hell.

C. S. Lewis said, “I have met no people who fully disbelieved in Hell and also had a living and life-giving belief in Heaven.” The biblical teaching on both destinations stands or falls together. If the one is real, so is the other; if the one is a myth, so is the other. The best reason for believing in Hell is that Jesus said it exists.

It isn’t just what Jesus said about Hell that matters. It is the fact that it was he who said it.

“There seems to be a kind of conspiracy,” wrote Dorothy Sayers, “to forget, or to conceal, where the doctrine of hell comes from. The doctrine of hell is not ‘mediaeval priestcraft’ for frightening people into giving money to the church: it is Christ’s deliberate judgment on sin.... We cannot repudiate hell without altogether repudiating Christ.”

Why do I believe in an eternal Hell? Because Jesus clearly and repeatedly affirmed its existence. As Sayers suggested, you cannot dismiss Hell without dismissing Jesus.

Atheist Bertrand Russell wrote, “There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that He believed in hell. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment.”

Shall we believe Jesus or Bertrand Russell? For me, it is not a difficult choice.

C. S. Lewis said of Hell, “There is no doctrine which I would more willingly remove from Christianity than this, if it lay in my power. But it has the full support of Scripture and, specially, of Our Lord’s own words; it has always been held by Christendom; and it has the support of reason.”

We cannot make Hell go away simply because the thought of it makes us uncomfortable. If I were as holy as God, if I knew a fraction of what he knows, I would realize Hell is just and right. We should weep over Hell, but not deny it. If there isn’t an eternal Hell, Jesus made a terrible mistake in affirming there is. And if we cannot trust Jesus in his teaching about Hell, why should we trust anything he said, including his offer of salvation?

We may pride ourselves in thinking we are too loving to believe in Hell. But in saying this, we blaspheme, for we claim to be more loving than Jesus—more loving than the One who with outrageous love took upon himself the full penalty for our sin.

Who are we to think we are better than Jesus?

Or that when it comes to Hell, or anything else, we know better than he does?

God determined he would rather endure the torment of the Cross on our behalf than live in Heaven without us. Apart from Christ, we would all spend eternity in Hell. But God so much wants us not to go to Hell that he paid a horrible price on the cross so we wouldn’t have to. This can be distorted into self-congratulation: if God paid such a great price for us, we must be extremely valuable. A better perspective is that if God had to pay such a great price for us, it emphasizes both the extent of his love and the extent of our evil.

Jesus asks a haunting question in Mark 8:36–37: “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”

The price has been paid, but we can’t benefit from forgiveness unless we choose to receive it. A convicted criminal may be offered a pardon, but if he rejects it, he remains condemned.

By denying Hell’s reality, we lower the stakes of redemption and minimize Christ’s work on the cross. If Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection didn’t deliver us from a real and eternal Hell, then his work on the cross is less heroic, less potent, less consequential, and less deserving of our worship and praise.

Theologian William Shedd put it this way: “The doctrine of Christ’s vicarious atonement logically stands or falls with that of eternal punishment.”

The Road to Holocast

Road to Holocaust - from Web

By Hal Lindsey

Just as current events are converging into the precise pattern the biblical prophets predicted would herald the return of Jesus Christ, a movement within the Evangelical Church denies it all -- allegorizing away the clear meaning of prophecy and setting the stage for a SECOND Holocaust. This movement, commonly known as Dominion Theology, reintroduces an old error that brought catastrophe to the Church and the Dark Ages to the world -- the same error that founded a legacy of contempt for the Jews and ultimately led to the Holocaust of Nazi Germany.

The Danger Behind Political
Buzz Words We Ignore
by Heidi Swander
January 25, 2010
(Note from Jan: We are living in a surveillance society. As my radio guests last weekend [January 23] said, we have gone well beyond what George Orwell imagined due to today's technology. This new film documents how this happened, why this happened, who is involved, and what we can do. Get the film and better understand what on earth is happening. The issue Heidi Swander writes about is just one aspect of what the producers of the film -- Cloud Ten Pictures -- are trying to present. You can see a trailer of the DVD here.)
There is a social value that has been forced into the fabric of our society today, and I daresay that the majority of us haven't a clue what it means, nor do most of us care. But we should. We must. It involves our freedom, our homes, our very lives and the lives of those we love. Are you ready? The social value is called "Sustainable Development." Please -- hear me out; don't tune me out.
I was watching the DVD,
Shadow Government a couple weeks ago when this subject was broached by a number of the authors being interviewed (including Gary Kah, Chuck Missler, Dr. Kathryn Albrecht, Grant Jeffrey, Jack Kinsella, and others). The more I heard, the more alarmed I became at a term that I've patently ignored for years.

"People don't know much about sustainable development because . . . our public information systems have been bought out, or have been taken control over, by forces that seek the creation of this one world where human beings become chattel to the ruling elite," explains Michael Shaw, president of Freedom Advocates. "It seems that there have been plenty of people signing up to become slave masters and keep this information under cover."

Chuck Missler concurs: "We have a media that's prostituted itself totally to an agenda, and not only in terms of what it promotes, but in terms of what it hides. The real truth was hidden to the American people -- still is. It's an incredibly well-organized propaganda machine."

So, what is Sustainable Development?

According to Michael Shaw, the specific plan for Sustainable Development that has been outlined by the United Nations is entitled Agenda 21. "That plan, in its own expression, calls for reduction of the human population by 85%." Hello Heidi! Say what? Yes, you read that correctly. The powers-that-be within the framework of the United Nations believe that the population of Planet Earth must be reduced by 85%. See how important it is to listen to the talk behind liberal buzz words?

Now I visited the United Nations Web page for Sustainable Development. They use ten-dollar words to explain their plan and it's quite a laborious task to wade through it all. But I found the most awesome article online entitled, "Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 for Dummies." This article puts the gist of the Agenda 21 plan in layman's terms.

The author, Polo, quotes the Agenda 21 plan, "All biological life has natural cycles of birth and death, and we should learn to accept these natural cycles and teach people that saving lives at birth or extending life at our times' end is non-sustainable." Then he elaborates. "In other words, what these Sustainabilists are saying is, 'Can't you just have the good grace to simply die, rather than be a strain on society'? Or, 'Why can't you just accept that your baby was born defective and can never be a contributing member to society, and have the decency to simply let 'it' die?' Can this really be happening? Yes, it is happening. Every re-iteration of Health Care Reform bills have heavy taxes to be levied against medical devices. These devices are the ones used to sustain life, to extend life. They simply must be run out of business!

"Two major components of Sustainable Development are de-population/population control and bio-equity. As Cass Sunstein announced: 'Animals and all living creatures have equal rights to humans.' We may laugh, but they are laughing harder as they re-shape the map of the United States in nefarious ways to meet the objectives of Sustainable Development."

According to Polo, we are eventually to live, work, and socialize within government-controlled, urbanized cities. He continues, "This can't be true, you may say. Yes it is. The San Joaquin Valley is being starved as their economy is shut down to protect the smelt. Logging villages are being shut down in Oregon to preserve the spotted owl. Over 400,000 square miles of the United States is currently being 'grabbed' by the government in the name of the Agenda 21 Wildlands Project (WP) . . . There are currently 39 massive WPs ongoing in the United States this very moment with the objective to engineer population distribution."

Back to the DVD. Gary Kah -- one of our speakers at Understanding the Times 2009 and returning this fall to our 2010 conference -- is a former high-ranking government liaison. He is the author of the must-read book En Route to Global Occupation. Gary states, "I've seen a map that shows that ultimately as much as a third of the United States could be declared as one-world property where people wouldn't have any access to it at all."

Georgia Guidestones

Regarding population control, Gary shares, "There's a place I visited called The Georgia Guidestones where they present the 10 commandments of the New Age movement in a number of different languages, and one of the commandments calls for the reduction of the population of mankind down to a fraction of what it is right now. So a thinking, intelligent person should be asking, 'How are they going to achieve that?' If that is one of their goals, and they're going to work toward that goal, then who are the victims going to be and how are they going to choose who lives and dies?"

Friends, this is the world we're living in. There are people in high positions within the governments of the world who are orchestrating this movement. I felt you should know. There is much more you should know, and if you haven't already, I highly recommend you purchase a copy of Shadow Government -- and then have some friends over to watch it with you. Talk about eye-opening!

But here's the good news: We've read the end of the Book and Jesus wins! That makes us winners too! Be aware. Stay alert. Hey -- that sounds scriptural (I Thess. 5:6-8)! And look up (Luke 21:28). All of this only reveals that Jesus is coming soon!

Picking up Sharon today.

Tom's Journal.

Sharon called and said that I should pick her up to take her home in a few hours. When I saw her before this morning and talked to the Male RN, Chris, I left no misunderstanding that I wanted to speak to a doctor to get the correct information about Sharon's status prognosis, etc. as it has been over a week since Sharon came there to the 'ban aid shop' --- St. Catherine's hospital near Kenosha, WI. Seems like they are short on everything, machines to do their jobs, doctors, nurses and common sense... lol. I always give credit where credit is due and compliment people on a job well done. But lately Sharon is having serious congestive heart failure, with an enlarged heart and painful spasms right in front of me and the staff TODAY. So what do they do? Send her home today... in a few hours after she calls me up to get her. Maybe there is something I am missing.

Just like the tremendous loud noise of the crowd at the Vikings/ Saints game yesterday, the constant up and down-- in and out shuttling of my wife to and from the hospital gets old, and even my wife is tired of it. Maybe there is nothing we can really do at this point in life and sickness. But we are very disappointed in the lack of communication in that hospital. It certainly reminds me of the present administration at the WH. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing... and I expect things to only get worse. How many deaths come from the wrong communication--- wrong medicine given to the wrong patients? Surgeons cut off the wrong body part of the wrong person? And with everything else now days-- most folks are there working for a paycheck only.

Got to go right now to pick up my dear wife.

PS: She's home with me now... but can barely walk even with her walker or cane. Aren't 'doctors' great.... Ha !? 6PM , 1-25-10.

The Vikings LOST the game!

Tom's Journal.

Just my opinion but, the Vikings deserved to lose the football game tonight because of all their fumbles and interception --- but the Saints played dirty and intentionally hit Brett Farve AFTER he through the ball, but never got sacked! Oh, I think Brett ought to retire now and enjoy life with his family. Just my 2 cents.

My wife found out that she has "floaters" in her eyes now. What a bummer.... it's been 7 days now and I have yet to speak to any of her doctors. Expect things to get much worse while obama is in office. I think his own people will push him out before his term is up... LOL.


2009 was a tough year, but I made it !!!

How 'bout you ???
