Happy St. Valentines Day

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    I wish I could sent a box of those cute little Necco sweetheart candies to each of my Treepers today with those cute sayings:

    “I [heart] you”
    “Be mine”
    “Let’s kiss”

    Sentimental Valentine’s greetings to you all!

    “Obama’s Eligibility Diversion”


    “…”Is Obama eligible?” is a legitimate question. But so is “Who is Obama?” And further, “Who is backing him?”

    Let’s see Obama’s records. Let’s expose the radical leftists who support him.

    In fact, Obama himself once said: “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”

    Media Matters memo calls for investigating the private lives of Fox News employees. ““Simply put,” Frisch wrote, “the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”

    A lengthy tome on the genesis of the “contraception thing”. Not what you think.



  6. texan59 says:

    You aren’t gonna believe the real reason why everyone must have free contraception.

    I can’t remember if this has been posted anywhere. It appears that “global warming” is killing people.

    The Global Warming Hoax is Now Killing People


    “By Friday, February 10th, an estimated 500 Europeans had died from the freezing weather gripping the continent. This is the price they and British citizens are paying for embracing the global warming hoax, spending billions for wind power when they should have been building coal-fired and other sources of energy to heat their homes and businesses…”

    Happy Valentine’s Day, ya’ll!

    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
    John 3:16 (NIV)


    • Happy Valentines Day to you Freedom, and to every Treeper…

      I hope everyone finds a similar love and acceptance here on earth that God has waiting for us all in heaven. 😀 Warmest best to everyone on Valentines Day.


  11. Ok so here is a lesson for today.

    Where do you think the origin of “left (liberals) and right(Conservatives)” came from?
    Well perhaps it came from a passage in the bible Ecclesiastes 10:2 (KJ translatio)
    .”A wise man’s heart is at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left.”
    Can’t get any simpler than that!!

    Ok, now a spelling lesson for the day;

    The last four letters in American is……..I CAN
    The last four letters in Republican is…..I CAN
    The last four letters in Democrats is……RATS
    End of lesson and the **TEST** will be in November!

    Remember, November is to be set aside as rodent extermination month!

      Translate the phrase, “I’m proud to be a progressive Democrat,” into Aramaic. Then, translate it into Greek, using Warnick’s 1905 Aramaic-Greek dictionary. Write it backward and render it into Sereptian numerological chart using the Sereptian-Bayliss Index. Back-translate it to English using a Bayliss Writer encoding book and you get the following astounding reading: “Yoko fu*ked up the Beatles and Democrats hate America.”

      Amazing…… but true.

      Just sayin’….

    Dad Who Shot Up Daughter’s Laptop with a .45 Says Cops Paid Him a Visit


    “For those that feel the need to keep calling the police and CPS,” the Stanly County, North Carolina resident writes, “lol.“ Those letters are the universal symbol for ”laugh out loud.”

    He‘s laughing because both the police and child protective services didn’t find anything wrong…”

      One is left with the impression that everything would be solved, if only the Italians weren’t involved. . .

      And if someone is speculating about an assassination sometime in the next 12 months, the Swiss Guards need to put them at the top of their “watch” list. . .

    Small update from Wi. More and more fraud is coming out on the recall Walker campaign. One signer was dumb enough to sign for herself and her parents (who are out of the country) and brag about it on Facebook.
    Our CIC is visiting Masterlock in Milwaukee tomorrow. The MSM is going to make this look wonderful. What they probably won’t tell you is that Masterlock is the last industy standing in what was once a very busy area. There are acres and acres and acres of empty industrial buidlings around Masterlock. There is one closed industry there that once employed 10,000 people. I give Masterlock much credit for hanging in there. Just thought you might like to know.

    Will the EPA Regulate Sandcastle Building?


    “In an article titled “Digging in Beach Sand Linked to Increased Risk of Gastrointestinal Illness,” the EPA cites a intensive study performed by EPA researchers and other scientists which found that your risk of getting sick might increase after playing in the sand.”

    Oh puuleaze…… 🙄

    Heard this on Rush’s show and I wanted to scream.

    Federal Agents Inspect Your Child’s Lunch


    Fu@!in’ food Nazis!!!!!!! 😡


    • Mom packs lunch for her 4 y.o. preschooler. Lunch contained turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips, and apple juice. “Agent” (?) says that it isn’t nutritious enough, so they take her lunch away and give her a lunch from the cafeteria. What does the little girl eat? 3 chicken nuggets (the rest goes to waste because she’s a picky eater, which is why her mom packed her lunch in the first place). Now which is more nutritious?



      • freedom1781 says:

        I don’t pack my daughter’s lunch since the school menu is pretty good. I do pack her a snack. On the first day of school, we were given a list of acceptable snack foods. I find it hilarious. I know for a fact that today they’re having a Valentine’s Day party with lots of candy, cupcakes and “strawberry” milk (my daughter calls it pink milk)! I wonder what the food Nazis would think of that! Yeah, they’d probably issue a Cease and Desist and force the teachers to offer a veggie and fruit plate, skim milk and water.


        • Yeah can’t have candy or coke machines in school nowadays that might kill someone, BUT, we have condom machines instead and morning after pills and abortion rights and……. where the hell is the parents? too busy trying to compete with the Joneses? Because our society have led/forced* mothers into a way of life there is no parent to monitor what the hell is going on in their childs life and be more involved.

          *(imho) because without 2 parents working, most of the time, you can no longer afford to function properly in society unless your other half is rich.
          The alternative would be to struggle like heck which is what some of us are willing to do for the sake of our children.
          No offense intended to anyone in general here it is just mho.


          • freedom1781 says:

            I’m not offended at all. I’m a working mom; I work long hours because I have to in order to make ends meet. I’d love more than anything to be a stay-at-home mom. Hubby is a work-at-home dad, which is wonderful. I believe that my daughter is well-behaved because she stayed at home instead of attending daycare or preschool.


            • That is great freedom1781 and I hear so much of the same thing all the time. I wish I could be a stay-at-home mom. It is good that at least one of you can be there for your daughter. That is the problem I am talking about. Our society has dictated to us and created the situation where it is almost impossible to have one parent at home raising the child. I mean it seems to be a forced decission in the matter of economics.


      • The only state which I ever got a nutritious lunch was up in Iowa. Them farmers know what a growin boy needs. Course that was in ’70.
        After we moved , mom made our lunch every day. I think it was right after she read “Back To Eden” and learned about all those pesticides they were putting spraying on the food.
        But now we are smarter and have to have the food police to ****** up our lives and mess with our childrens heads.
        WTH was that vaccination called?
        You gotta be kidding me.
        Now we got answers for STD’s with vaccinations for our young girls so they can be protected by the sex police.
        God, sometimes Your patience wears me out.


        • freedom1781 says:

          Them farmers know what a growin boy needs. Course that was in ’70.

          Of course, back in the day, kids spent most of their time outside playing. These days, not so much. I mean, dontcha know that throwing a frisbee or a football on the beach could hurt someone and that playing in the sand is harmful to your heath?


        • No kidding. This stuff is unreal. Is this what happens when stimulus money all gets funneled into the Dept of Education, and all the newly hired storm troopers need something to do while they’re waiting around for Bill Ayers to start giving them their real orders? More tinfoil, please!

      Important Note to Homeland Security Lurkers: The writer of this intemperate comment is a typical angry white man who has likely imbibed an amount of alcohol and/or Ambien that would render him capable of writing such unkind things about the hard-working and wonderful men and women of the Transportation Security Administration, who daily place their lives on the line to protect America from terror threats masquerading and 90-year old ladies in wheelchairs, toddlers in soiled nappies with their teddy bears, active duty military men, nuns (both flying and non-flying) and pilots of transport aircraft. No harm, insult, castigation, reproach, missed approach, roach-coach and head coach is intended by these remarks.


  17. Excellent piece on Margaret Sanger and the current debate on freedom of religion vs. No Birth Control Left Behind

    ‘To Stop the Multiplication of the Unfit’


    See what Sanger said in 1957 about Catholics or any religious group.

  20. Videos: Three faces of forced unionism and political contributions


    The one that bugs me the most is the tale of how parents in Washington state are forced to join SEIU if they take Medicaid to take care of a developmentally-disabled child. That’s $95 a month that could go towards that child’s care, but is going into union coffers instead. 😡


  21. Rush: How the left is going after Rick Santorum with contraception


    Dick Morris was on Hannity last night. Morris’ theory is that the Dems have dropped the abortion argument, because they know it is a loser for them. Instead, they have shifted over to contraception, because just about everybody agrees that women should have access to contraception, if they want it. Now, think back to that bizarre exchange during the debate moderated by George Snuffleupagus where George kept asking if states have the right to ban (outlaw) contraception. Fast forward to just a few days ago to the contraception mandate and Catholic churches.

    Morris’ theory is that this is a deliberate move by the Dems. to paint the GOP as being anti-contraception. Somehow, respecting a religious institutions decision to not pay for contraception for its employees is now somehow equivalent to denying women their rights or access to contraception.

    link at Rush:



  22. Planned Parenthood using public scrools to sexualize children.

    Disturbing report on Planned Parenthood: “Hooking Kids on Sex”


    Probably a bit overhyped, but definitely some truth here.


    • Jake Tapper of ABC News wrote a remarkable story last week revealing the players in the Obama administration’s internal debate on the contraception mandate.

      According to Tapper, President Obama’s top advisers on the issue included Vice President Joe Biden, former White House Chief-of-Staff Bill Daley, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, former Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes, White House Senior Advisers Valerie Jarrett and Pete Rouse, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, two U.S. Senators – and Planned Parenthood Federation for America CEO Cecile Richards […]

      Surprising to me was Richards’ unquestioned prominence at the White House. Why did the mainstream media not question an obvious benefactor of the contraceptive mandate being in on the conversation? Richards is truly in the inner circle. Pro-lifers knew Richards had influence, but to see in writing just exactly how much weight she carries is informative.

    After watching Doomsday Preppers, I think an interesting post would be “what we fear” as to why anybody’s prepping. Tonight’s episode – the first guy’s gonna get his kids confiscated; the second guy’s gonna get fired from the FD, what do you think they’ll get the third guy for?
    Plus they’re rerunning last week’s peeps and you’ll see the disarmed, encarcerated guy pretty quick.
    I don’t fear a natural event – that is what it is. My nightmare is more like Red Dawn, but with our own government complicit – and I want to survive long enough to make a difference. That’s all.

      Wasn’t he in NC? Probably get his guns since he’s got too many, and I’m guessing he’s got too much booze that he wants to barter – that would be “potentially” selling liquor without a license. If NC can tell you what to feed your kid, I’m sure they have something for the guy! 👿


    • WeeWeed says:

      Have noticed that the price of those shipping containers (they’re used for storage sheds, some, out here) has gone from around $2500.00 to whatever they want, now – Plus!! You make the feds ‘nut list,’ should you inquire about one, were I a betting soul…
