The Ant And The Grasshopper--Modern Version

The Ant and the Grasshopper fable worked well in times past when people were encouraged to succeed.  Alas, the world has drastically changed, especially America since this story was first published, which renders the moral of the original yarn obsolete. Since the story is still being read today, an update is required and has been implemented to more accurately reflect the times. We thank Rev. Ed Berkey (Ret.) for sending this to MilesTones:

This one is a little different....
Two Different Versions....Two Different Morals....


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

For Obama--A Trillion Dollars Is Just A Drop in The Bucket

Obama's Healthkill Scheme that he plans to push through tomorrow, Saturday, will cost taxpayers $2.5 trillion. Does anyone have any idea of how much ONE trillion dollars would be?

Joe Ambroso, one of the columnists for The Examiner (International web news organization) explains what this means for our out-of-control deficit spending:

"A friend recently gave me a sense of how much a trillion is with an illustration you can also find on various Internet sites. A million seconds, he said, is 12 days, while a billion seconds is 31 years. A trillion seconds? That's 31,688 years. In other words, a trillion is a whole, whole lot, and that's something you might keep in mind when reading that the U.S. deficit for 2009 is now projected at $1.4 trillion, which is a cool trillion more than the deficit in 2008 and the most government spending as a percentage of gross domestic product - 10 percent - since World War II."

Obama, however is going beyond that to spend $2.5 trillion for his healthscare plan.  Where do we get the money? When China runs out, The One will simply print up more money....with absolutely nothing to back it with, paving the way for the total bankruptcy over-throw and collapse of America, which is the Marxist plan, and has been since 1900.

Tomorrow, Saturday, November 21, 2009, the most inportant vote in decades is expected to be decided in the U.S. Senate...the socialized medicine legistation.

Veterans Day Slammed by Liberal Church Group

Happy Veterans day from one vet to all others. Special thanks and appreciation go to Tom Purcell, whose column is syndicated by Cagle Cartoons Newspaper Syndicate. In his column published today, he gives a beautiful tribute to veterans.

Purcell, who looks like a better looking Stephen King, is my favorite columnist. He has a great sense of humor with his take on world happenings. He also displays a very deep side with issues that are significant to most of us. His essay today, showing how citizens of America can REALLY support those on active duty in war zones and those who have returned, brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Tom. However, the Marxist liberals have their own take about this day that has been set aside to honor our veterans:

Across the pond, a leftist orginizaton called, Ekklesia which is billed as a 'religious' think tank is so far out in left field that the crows won't even roost there. They support every action and behavior that the Bible condemns. This pastor and Chaplain John Ruffle of London, go back and forth regarding the outrageous content of the Ekklesia Marxists publications.  We are both amazed that this is billed as a "Christian" organization.

News At Midnight--igNoble-Nobel Prize-Ca.Gov to Fine Wife?

As the world knows, Barack Hussein Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize this week...which make it a igNoble-Nobel Prize. Adding to the irony, the founder of the award, Alfred Nobel for whom it was named, was the inventor of....dynamite, which might have blocked Mr. Nobel from being able to receive his own peace recognition. 

However, based upon the reasoning (?) capabilities (!) of the Nobel Committee this week, they would probably justify Mr. Nobel being a recipient since by inventing dynamite, Mr. Nobel could see his invention wipe out the entire population of the earth, and then, without people that might conflict with each other, there would be peace.  Nah...on second thought, that committee obviously could never reason or think that much.

*Breaking-Supremes Debating Mojave Cross Case

Today the US Supreme Court is hearing arguments regarding a war memorial cross in a remote area of the Mojave Desert due to a complaint of one man who doesn't even live in the area of the "offensive" cross. He lives in Oregon. The first to report the news from the court is Concerned Women of America, and their press release is below.

The Court and The Cross

Supreme Court to decide fate of Veterans' Cross in Mojave Desert
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /Christian Newswire/-Today the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in Salazar vs. Buono, better known as the Mojave Desert Cross case. World War I veterans erected a cross 75 years ago on land that was open range to honor those who had died serving America in the war. In 1994, the Clinton Administration federalized the land. The ACLU sued to remove the cross, which is literally in a desert and difficult to find, on behalf of a former National Park Service worker who lives in Oregon. The case will impact all "religious displays" on federal land.

Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America, stated at a press conference:

"The cross is the most profound symbol of the most humble act of service-to lay down one's life for another. It was veterans who chose the cross to symbolize the service of their brothers and sisters in the military who laid down their lives to keep our country free.

Obama's World

For the traditional Christian in the contemporary world, things may sometimes appear to be rotten. It all to often feels as though we are losing the war, when it's the battle we should be contending with. For those of us who have been guilty of watching on the sidelines, it's rendered us some what paralyzed in frustration. The man who we call President is methodically waging a cultural assault, that if left unchallenged, will be the single greatest detriment to the American soul, ever.

Only Fools Rush In

nly Fools Rush In

We were blind sided by 9/11, Bush sounded the alarm, and we were all to willing to surrender a significant slice of individual freedom. With bogus wire taps and illegal confiscations of personal liberty, via the Patriot Act, the attacks became politically lucrative for the 43rd President. I don't subscribe to the whole “ It was an inside job...” theory, but just take a look at the economic hysteria that Bush handed off to Obama, he put the ball right in his hands. I guess the former President was so preoccupied solidifying this hoax, that is the war on terror, that he was powerless to stop the impending economic nose dive.
