"It was awesome to be with fellow believers with whom I could discuss these important issues. I left not feeling so alone."

Look back and thank Him;
Look around and serve Him;
Look ahead and trust Him;
Look up and expect Him;
Jesus is coming again!
You've often heard Jan recite this at the close of her radio program. Now Jan Hickey has created a print with this familiar exhortation in Hebrew and English. It includes a laser-cut, light blue dove super-imposed over a Star of David.

Are you trying to make sense of what socialized medicine means to you and your loved ones? Then I encourage you to check out our current radio program, "The Progressive Dream is America's Nightmare" found here or here.
You say it is not Christmas season entertainment. That's true. But be mugged by reality now or later. It will happen.
Government-run medicine is the crown jewel of Socialism. The Progressives have been trying to implement it for 100 years in America so it is not likely they will let it slip away from them, but let's not give up quite yet!
The bitter truth is that the Left does not care if it improves healthcare or not. It is not about healthcare. It is about control.
On this radio program, I talk to Twila Brase from the Citizen's Council for Health Freedom, Read excellent info found there and learn more about the issues highlighted below:
1) There are three legal ways to avoid ObamaCare or the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
2) You can join a "health sharing organization" but this is not insurance. It is a method to share medical expenses. These organizations are exempt from ACA.
3) There is one way this Progressive dream could end before a conservative President might repeal it. Learn what that is.
4) Another 100 million employer-based health plans could be cancelled in 2014. Can this be stopped?
5) How and when is this leading to a single payer system which is all government run? Medicare is a single payer system so is that all bad?
6) Why is the ACA nothing but Medicaid for the middle class?
7) What is the future of Medicare? Why should seniors begin looking for doctors who have opted out of Medicare?
8) You might get acquainted with the AAPS organization: Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and their "cash for care" program. Visit
9) Will rationing be a reality? It already is but will get much worse in 2015 and beyond. Medicare was robbed to help pay for the ACA. What can you do?
10) We are told there is "stringent security" at Is this just another lie? Yes. Any private info you put in there can be hacked by anyone.
11) What is the Affordable Care Act "marriage penalty"? Why will it force people to divorce?
12) Will those in Congress on the Left be willing to stop this, realizing the American dream is being ruined?
13) If not, how soon might we see a single payer system?
14) For more info, get the weekly e-alerts from We highly recommend this organization and their effort to save U.S. healthcare that has been the world's finest.
We regret if this is seen as offensive to many who feel they may benefit from the ACA. In time, this will be proven to be false. Please heed the warnings and join the effort to repeal this law.
A humanitarian crisis is in the making if this law is not altered or repealed. People are making payments through the exchange system that are not reaching any insurance companies. Some will assume they are covered when they are not.
Others have lost coverage and are floundering, many with serious health issues.
When something is so wrapped in deceit, fraud, and lies, nothing good can come from it! It is about Leftist politics, not healthcare.
This law affects every single American. Find the complete programming here or here. To learn of CD subscription for $15 a month, call us M - F at 763-559-4444. We must process with a credit card. You will get one radio CD a week other than holiday weekends.

Louie Gohmert.

Tom's Journal.

Louie Gohmert gives a speech on the House floor.

I just subscribed to this Christian News Paper, that alerts us to what's happening in the real world of persecuted Christianity, even in America !! 
    Since [I figure] most of my readers are in the same mindset as me, Christian Community, hard working folks, many Patriots, Middle class, Educated, people with at least Common Sense, Military men and women, etc.,  please allow me to ask a simple question:   'Have you ever wondered WHY God chose YOU to be Saved, and be in that special "Spirit Anointed Church Class" who are destined to go to Heaven ? ? ?'    I COULD HAVE TOTALLY MISSED THE BOAT, and ended up dead,  DEAD, before I had a chance to accept the Lord, Jesus Christ, and end up in hell !  Go figure that I put myself in harm's way so many times, and most of my friends in the same predicament too...  LOL !   And don't think I know who butters my toast  --- I am so thankful and happy to have been so BLESSED by the Lord, sinner that I am, no matter how hard I try,  I surely mess up every single day that goes by.   But God knows this and has thus made a special provision with the ransom blood of Jesus that takes away all sin, past, present and future sins!    We don't PLAN to go sin tomorrow or the next day, but it happens.

SOME of my personal faults are, impatience, short temper, lack of self control, frustration in not getting the proper results when I am teaching someone,  etc.  Other men have confessed their short comings with me too, and I try to tell them that we will NEVER be perfect while on God's green Earth!   But we can all reach a certain plateau in putting up with each other, and get along, and agree with what the Good Book says, as we meet and discuss sacred things from the KJV Bible...[or what ever you use..].  at church, or even on the InterNet, that blesses us all.   All the facts of the world at our fingertips, INFO, encouragement, fellowship, kindness !   But I was a Communicator even when in high school, class of '67, reading and writing letters.   Actually, many times I feel like a king where I am right now, U.P. in the Great Northern Woods.... in the 'Frozen Tundra,' with many books and our PC.   What more does a man need, but to have the basics of food, shelter and covering, besides a handful of good, godly friends to meet with every week in a Bible loving church ??   And we have the nasty cold, chilly weather in Winter, but not the high, scary crime of the big cities plagued by punks on drugs, rape, robbery, theft, and murder, PTL ! 

However, as studied servants of the Lord,  we do know that we live in the Last Days of this old, satanic system, that MUST happen to fulfill Bible prophesy.  So why do some of us continue to perpetuate the "Old World" that is corrupt and sin laden or godless humans who have jumped ship over to the devil's side ??  "Oh, vote for this man, or that party, or that [ism] --way of life, mindset, administration, or One World Gov't !!"  
     If anything, I just want to do God's Will, and make sure that I please Him!!  So..... just what IS God's Will ... How many even know ? ?  Just take a trip to:  FIRST
  TIMOTHY, 2ND CHAPTER, VERSES 3 and 4:   "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;;   Who will have all men be be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth."   ---
and verse 5:  "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.  6. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in de time."   And, friends, as I always say, AS SIMPLE AS THIS IS, many cannot absorb it,  because they have NOT the Holy Spirit to help them understand it.  The Holy Spirit is FREE !!!  Just ask for Him to come and help you!  If you are having trouble quiting a bad habit, like over drinking, smoking, cursing, foul  speech, or what ever, there exists a fine SYSTEM that works, with a very HIGH percentage of success, called:  REFORMERS.   Offered at many Baptist churches all over the world, and I have been there too, and benefited.   For more info, call my good pastor, Kevin Sullivan @  906-774-8239, or just look this org up on the InterNet.  If I get into trouble for taking these liberties,  just hang me.  I am here to help, if I can.   But why now start off  the New Year right  ? ?

Tell me, please leave a comment, if I have helped you at all.  Terri just got home from grocery shopping, and got me a pumpkin pie !
   Have a cold day.

Hugs and Well Wishes,
Tom Schuckman

WASHINGTON – In a recent speech on the House floor, Republican Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas explained that throughout the Bible, God protects nations that honor Him, but destroys nations that turn away from His rule.
Gohmert was speaking about the persecution of Christians around the world, including the in Middle East, and the mainstream media’s avoidance of the topic.
“Christians in the Middle East and around the world are being persecuted, imprisoned and martyred for their faith,” he said. “There is widespread systemic violence, and no one in the mainstream media and government seems to have noticed.”
“We may see the elimination and extinction of Christianity in its very birthplace, without a whimper of protest from the West,” he lamented.
He then began to speak about God’s protections on Israel in the Bible, as well removal of His hand from the nation when it stopped honoring Him.
“[N]o country has ever fallen while it was truly honoring the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,” he said. “So, if you were completely a-religious, completely atheistic, but you wanted to have [your country] safe and protected, then it would sound like from historical purposes, that it might be a good thing to encourage those who believe in God to keep doing so.”
“Because when a nation’s leaders honor that God,” he continued, “that nation is protected. It’s only when it turns away that it falls.”

In 1798, President John Adams made similar statements in proclaiming a national day of humiliation, prayer and fasting.
“As the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and blessing of Almighty God, and the national acknowledgment of this truth is not only an indispensable duty which the people owe to Him,” he wrote, “…this duty, at all times incumbent, is so especially in seasons of difficulty and of danger, when existing or threatening calamities—the just judgments of God against prevalent iniquity—are a loud call to repentance and reformation.”
Gohmert, a Sunday School teacher at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas, said in his speech that America has fallen from its glory days and is turning its back on the followers of Christ.
“Now we have turned full circle, and we are starting to … reward those abroad who persecute the very churches that made America the freest country,” he stated. “We are losing our exceptionalism because we are refusing to stand up for Christians here and around the world.”
Gohmert ended his address by pleading with the Obama administration to stop supporting foreign nations that persecute those who follow the God of the Bible.
“Quit rewarding them. Quit providing them arms,” he said. “Because if we don’t, we will slip down the slide of history and into the dustbin of history, and people will only be able to look back and say, ‘What an amazing country that once was.’”
