Yate's Mill

And, I'm still STANDING!!!

If a person ONLY gets their information from the mainstream media and never looks beyond what is presented, their thoughts of what is going on are very jaded.

I've been voting since 1980 and I've never agreed 100% with any elected official. Even my favorite president, Ronald Reagan, had his moments. I've been married for almost 25 years and I don't 100% agree with my husband, either. So I am not focusing on finding a politician that I 100% agree with because I know better.

I did support Bush, both times! I'm not ashamed or apologetic about that. My goodness, the man stood up before a nation and prayed to the Creator of the Universe on behalf of the people he represented. He wasn't ashamed, or didn't feel his countrymen too diverse to put forth his true, heartfelt beliefs.

And yes, I supported John McCain because as the choices were presented I knew I couldn't support Obama. Obama stands for a vast majority of things I stand against. I am not ashamed or apologetic of that either. I am an American, that is my right but more importantly, my resonsibility!

I can't vote for a man who in 2007 gave a speech to Planned Parenthood telling how he would support abortion for all females; then in 2008 told the nation at the Saddleback forum that identifying the beginning of life was above his pay grade; and then a few days after the inauguration with a stroke of his pen he suddenly feels conception is NOT above his pay grade anymore. He either can't remember what he stands for or is flat out lying. Either way, I'm not a supporter of an alzheimer's victim or a liar for president.

We really knew where he stood no matter what he said because his record in the Illinios senate bore that out. The man voted at least 4 times to promote abortion at all costs. He voted to strip the rights of American citizens who survived an abortion gone wrong (right?). He told you and me the wording wasn't right. Yet, if you look at what really happened you see he insisted certain wording be added so it would align with what was past at the federal level. Once that wording was included he still voted against it. Now I say, "Liar, liar pants on fire!" I'm okay with being a little juvenile too! I'm an old lady and every chance I get I try to take it!

I'm not inclined to support a man who in less than 3 months has racked up a larger deficit that any previous administration in all of their years combined. But yet, every time he goes to talk about why he's doing what he's doing he blames the previous administration for the mess they left him. And acts like that's all he should have to say.

If we can pull our thoughts back to the memory station and remember what the previous administration had been doing those past 8 years we will recall that the last 2 years no one got anything productive done because congress refused to promote anything that was good for this country for no other reason than partisianship. Then the 2 years before that there was enough of a majority in the house and senate that many things Bush tried to get done for the betterment of the American citizens was filibustered--through yet more partisianship. So Obama's excuse is nothing more than passing the buck and it's very unbecoming a man or woman in his position.

Not to mention--I've been paying bills for our household for a long time. We've been in financial trouble before--you can't spend your way out of financial issues! It doesn't work--It has never worked and will never work, not on the personal level and certainly not on the national level. For the man to get up and say ONLY the federal government can get us out of this mess simply shows his ignorance. He can't remember, or has never understood, who the federal government is, or who they are employed by.

We the people have to pay every bill they commit themselves to. Essentially they are commiting us to those bills. We are trying to grab the checkbook and say, "Oh no you don't! We don't have the money for that and it is NOT in our best interest to obligate ourselves to that." The man can say oh yeah we will spend, spend, spend and then we will have money to pay, pay, pay but does he understand the spending and the paying are coming out of the same wallet?

I can't support a man who voluntarily sat and listened to a man get up and preach the damning of America; and his wife, who said she was never proud of her country before her husband ran for the greatest office in the land. (I guess she wasn't proud of anything going on in Illinois either). And now, in that same vein we have your representative and mine globe trotting with the message that he doesn't like the American people either. He apparently hasn't been proud of his country either. He thinks we have been arrogant, derisive and divisive all of these years. And right near the shores of Normandy. You young people need to pull out those old dusty history books, you might not get the true info from the internet--it's being changed to fit what they want to suit the next generation of tickled ears. You might want to sit down and talk to that grandfather or great uncle. Let them tell you what America was all about. Let them tell you how hurt and betrayed they are to hear someone from their own country say they are arrogant.

And, now his own administration has turned us against ourselves. He issued a proclamation that people who don't like BIG government; those who believe abortion is wrong; those who are returning from foreign lands they went to, to protect; those who think illegal immigration ought to be "illegal"; just might be right-wing extremists and involved in terror activities. They won't call internatiional terrorists, terrorist but they don't have a problem calling their own people terrorists. I'm quite upset and mighty angry at such a screwed up administration.

And some want to still claim to not understand why American's would be upset now and not before. I'll tell you--before we were being attacked from without and our within was being protected. Now our without and our within is being attacked by the very people someone(?) voted in to protect our without and our within.

Wow! Look What hating America/Whites will get you

The following is a link to a story written by Ronald Kessler. It gives great insight into what Rev. Wright has experienced in the past and looks forward to experiencing in the future. (Imagine the agony!)

Close Eye on Movies

Hello Everyone,

I'm writing about a recent purchase the kids made. Jeremiah and Beulah have had a birthday recently and they combined their money and bought a new movie. The "Bee Movie". I wasn't sure what the movie was about but went ahead and let them buy it. It's a cute movie about how hard bees work. But I am increasingly frustrated with the treatment good ol' human beings are receiving from Hollywood these days.

The Bee Movie tells about a bee "coming of age," so to speak. He graduates with pomp and circumstance and then has to choose a career. It is only then he finds out his career is for life, no going back, no changing your mind. He chooses instead to explore the outside world and in so doing has an up-close encounter with humans. Of course, one human is nice and ALL the others are mean. He discovers humans eat honey and is appalled that bees have to work so hard for humans to have something to eat.

He sues the human race for all of the honey. The anti-human aspect of this movie is certainly felt at this point and gets even worse when the lawyer representing the humans has the distinctive ring of a TV evangelist. As you would expect from 21st century Hollywood this character becomes a babbling idiot for all youngsters to make sure NOT to idolize.

Anyway, the bee wins the case and ALL honey production is stopped. The bees become sloppy and the greenery dies. The only human friend to the bee is a florist and she points out the death of the flowers and how it is affecting the humans. Because the bee likes the florist he decides to rally the bee troops and re-pollinate the planet so there will be flowers again. So the bee saves the planet after effectively destroying the original God design. Of course, Hollywood fails to point out that last bit of information for the impressionable youngsters.

It made me think of another movie I had gotten for the kids a couple of years ago, "Happy Feet". The kids watched that movie one time and I refused to allow them to watch it again. It was SO anti-human. The actors actually came out and called humans, "Aliens." The humans were catching fish and because it was making it more difficult for the penguins to get food they considered them, "Aliens".

I know the big "Global Warming" push and all that hullabaloo. I know the way some have decided to become so very concerned about the "footprint" we leave on this planet. I find it all so very "Anti-God". God designed this planet. He set it in motion. He devised the inner and outer workings and he specifically charged man to "have dominion ... over all the earth" (Gen. 1:26).

I've begun to wonder what in the world would the "global warming" alarmist have done or tried to do when Joshua prayed and asked God to hold off nightfall until the battle was won. A whole day. (Read about it in Joshua 10). My, wouldn't that have sent their charts and predictions in a tizzy? Joshua would have been sent to jail at the very least. Actually, I have a tendency to believe the "global warming" alarmist may have problems with their charts and predictions because of Joshua's answer from God. Maybe the flood screws up the whole mess, too. I don't know because I choose to depend on God and rest in knowing He set it in motion and has already told us He will destroy it and make it again.

Now, before you start sending me nasty little emails, please know: I also believe we ARE to be good stewards of what He has given us. I do not think we should litter, over use, etc. the resources we have. I believe we certainly need to find alternative fuel sources and set about recycling as much as possible. But I don't think the Titmouse needs land more than the humans who can put it to good use. I believe the fish were created by God's hand to feed us. And we can certainly share with the penguins. I believe God developed the bee species to be very hard workers and produce honey for humans (and bears).

There is a little known push going on under the surface to start making the kids think about the "footprint" they are leaving on the planet. It is being specifically targeted at having babies. Every baby means a "footprint" and the "footprint" is the thing that is messing up the ozone layer and creating all of the havoc on the planet. The environmentalist who are really pushing this have pointed to China as the example of limiting the negative effects each "footprint" places on the planet. Now, you all know, I have an opinion about this!

Here again, it is such an anti-God approach to the environment. I can give testimony that God Himself spoke to both Mike and myself about letting Him be in charge of how many children we have. It was a very long discussion, pretty ongoing and intense, especially around child 4 and 5. I had some nice long talks with God about what in the world He was doing. He pointed out that the "footprint" each child represented meant a possible eternity with Him. An eternity, non-the-less, one place or another. That there are only a few things that are eternal and "footprints" are one of them. The other thing I learned over and over is that we do not procreate without God's hand giving viability to each and every conception. No matter how hard we try we cannot create another human being, only God does the creating (Psalm 100). Each blessed creation of God is by His hand and is His responsibility. If He didn't want the earth to be able to sustain life then he would cause it to be so no matter if we had a full ozone layer and if we never drove a car in our life. And in the same vein, if He wants life to continue then He will cause this planet to be able to sustain that life.

Hollywood is being used not so much as an entertainment venue any longer as a political venue to promote the "global warming" agenda. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles beware. That child's movie that seems so harmless, may in fact, be used to indoctrinate the next generation to enormous anti-God philosophies. It's cute and so subtle, so innocent. Yet, let's remember how Satan deceived Eve. His ways haven't really changed much.

So, feed Hollywood if you must, but PLEASE sit with your children, talk openly about what the Bible says about what the kids are watching. Keep your antennas alert to anti-human fare. I suspect it will only get worse. We have to make sure our children do not fall for the indoctrination that they are responsible for keeping the planet "healthy, wealthy and wise" we ARE NOT God and we do NOT have the capabilities to do God's work. Maybe, Hollywood will wise up but I think it will take God's hand to bring that around as well.
