A LITTLE CHICKADEE

The following story will be rewritten and reformatted (cleaned up) when time permits.

A little Chickadee was perched on a limb happy as a chickadee could be with her black, white and grey feathers all fluffed up; warming herself against the cold wind and blowing snow of the winter; singing, "tweet, tweet, tweet," when she noticed a bunch of big, black, mean looking crows bearing down on her from above. They obviously were looking for trouble yelling, "CAW, CAW, CAW!" This scared her so badly that she froze in place. She tried to move out of sight a little hoping they would not see her. But, suddenly, one of the big bad crows flew smack into her; knocking her off the limb with such force that she fell to the ground and was dazed. She lay there for a moment gathering her composure and then realized that she could not move one of her wings very well - that mean old crow had injured her wing! By now, all the big, mean crows were swooping down on her yelling, "CAW, CAW, CAW," like a bunch of bullies. She was very scared and wanted nothing more than to just get up and fly away, and out of danger, but every time she tried to launch herself, she just fell back to the ground. The big bad crows started landing all around her and she was now terrified. She was hurt, cold, and could not get away. No way, could she defend herself. After all, she was just a little chickadee. The big, mean crows slowly began moving in towards her from all directions with their beady, mean looking eyes glaring at her and their menacing, sharp beaks pecking as to jester, “We are going to hurt you badly...we don't like you here.” She began to shiver and shake and whapped her little wings around her body as much as she could, as she crouched down waiting for the inevitable. She began crying, "Please, please don’t hurt me, I’m just a little chickadee." Other birds of all kinds, in the trees and in the air were hollering, “leave her alone you big bullies!” But the big, mean crows moved in closer and began to assault her, each one taking turns pecking at her and tumbling her over and over. She was praying it would end soon so she would not have to endure such misery and pain. Suddenly, all went quiet! All the birds that were yelling, "leave her alone," were deathly quiet. Something was happening, but what?? The big, bad crows were puzzled and they too, stopped to look around to see what was going on. Why did everything suddenly get so quiet? The little chickadee peered out from her little broken wing wondering why they had stopped pecking at her, and why was she still in one piece, in the midst of such vicious mean bullies? What’s happening here? She wondered. Then from out of no where, like a bolt of lightening, something shot right into the meanest of the big bad crows, hitting him so hard that his feathers flew in all directions. All the big meanie crows now were shocked and confused! “What was that? Yelled one of them. Then, suddenly another crow was hit...THUMP! As if a bolt of lightening had just struck him. Now, the crows began to cower a little. They had no idea what was hitting them and that frightened them. They began to back up and some of them took flight and flew away – they wanted no part of what was happening here. The little chickadee was so happy, she began to cry uncontrollably. Another swoop and...THUMP! Another big, mean crow tumbled over and over. The big bad crows finally realized this little game of hurting this poor little chickadee was not working so well, so they all got up, humiliated, and flew away as loose feathers fell to the ground in their hasty accent. The little, now happy chickadee, stood up and wondered what kind of miracle had just happened for her that she would be spared such agony. Then she saw the answer! Up in the tree sat the most handsome male chickadee she had ever seen in her life. He was fluffing up his black, white and grey feathers, as a victorious warrior, who had just saved a damsel in distress and looking at her lovingly and singing to her a song of love and comfort, "tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet."

BORACK OBAMA'S ELITIST VIEW OF AMERICA'S COMMON PEOPLE

Barrack Obama’s recent remarks about people of faith, who he describes as clinging to their guns and religion when they get frustrated, show how elitist he is, and how condescending the far left wing of the Democratic Party is of American’s common people.

The Democratic Party is very anti-gun and that is frightening. In England, Australia, Canada and many other places, guns have been taken away and only the government and the bad guys have them. Even hunting guns are outlawed. We cannot allow anyone to take away our right to own and use guns for defense, hunting and even target practice. They do not have this freedom in many countries and to give it up is the beginning of the end of our country as we know it.

Barrack Obama’s recent remarks about people of faith, who he describes as clinging to their guns and religion when they get frustrated, show how elitist the man is. If elected president of our country, this man poses a real threat to our right to bear arms.

The people of faith to whom Obama is referring are the common people of America. I am a person of faith – I try to live my life righteously, and I am an American citizen who has enjoyed our constitutional right to own and use guns all of my life - that’s what many ordinary or common American people do in this country.

My faith is much deeper than Obama’s shallow explanation. I like and appreciate my guns; I like using them, and I don’t believe I am frustrated because of them. Most people I knew when growing up loved God and guns, and none seemed frustrated to me. Most of my relatives and friends have always enjoyed owning and using guns and most of them are of deep faith, but I don’t think any of them are frustrated. If they are frustrated over something, it’s certainly not God or guns.

Obama’s remarks and attitude show how condescending the far left wing of the Democratic Party is of America's common people. Abraham Lincoln said, "God must love the common people because he made so many of them." Obama seems to be oblivious that America’s population is made up mostly of common people, and that his remarks are insulting to them.

He doesn't know the people of this country at all. He knows the jet set, the limousine liberals, Hollywood bunch, save the whales and kill the babies crowd, but he is na├»ve about those outside these groups. He thinks the common people don't count and their opinions are unimportant. He must think they are so stupid that they don’t know who he is talking about when he says things like this.

Obama tells us what he wants to do for us in America, but has very little respect for the ordinary or common people who represents a very large segment of the population. Would he ignore most of us and only represent the high-minded liberal ideals of the far left?

How could he be the Commander in Chief of the armed forces when he does not respect the very people who mostly make up the armed forces?

He makes these elitist statements and when challenged, says they were taken out of context, or some other flimsy excuse.

His wife's remark about not being proud of this country and his pastor's statements calling America the U.S.K.K.K.A. and his own statement about not wanting his daughter punished with a baby, should cause us to wonder what kind of a man Obama really is and what kind of a president he would be.

Would he not respect the religious beliefs of America and not take them into account in his agenda? And, would he be an anti-gun advocate pushing the effort to take firearms out of innocent citizen's hands?

Obama came from out of nowhere and America knows very little about him. We know he is a good speaker and has charisma, but little more. This does not make a particularly confident picture. America may be in great peril if this man becomes our next president.

BARACK OBAMA

BARACK OBAMA
I wonder if Obama's supporter's really know much about him other than that he is young, educated, polished and a good speaker, and of course, he is a liberal democrat. See my article below, "GOOD AMERICANS?" Maybe his supporter's should get over his charisma and think seriously about who this man MAY be.

MONEY

Who wants to make money? It is said that money is the root of all evil. Is it really? Think about this a little. aren't we blaming the wrong thing for our wickedness? Wihout money in the right hands in this society, many good things would not happen. Money doesn't cause evil, it's how its used by those of us who lack morality and limitations that causes evil. Money is only an instrument or a means to an end. Maybe, it should be said that selfishness, greed or jealousy, among other undesirable characteristics of man cause all evil.

CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?

I believe this question is relevant to our selection of the next president of the United States. It seems the politically correct thing to do lately is to accept just about anything without real knowledge and thought about it if the crowd is caught up in its freenzy. Many Americans are blind to, or lack little knowledge of the major differences between the principles upon which our country was founded and those that Musilms live by.

Can a good Muslim be a good American? Someone forwarded this question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following was his reply:

Theologically - no. . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia .

Religiously - no. . . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran).

Scripturally - no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

Geographically - no . . . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially - no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically - no. . . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.

Domestically - no. . . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).

Intellectually - no. . . Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically - no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually - no. . . . Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names.

Therefore, after much study and deliberation....Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. - - - They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans. The more we understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. The Religious war is bigger than we know or understand... And, Barack Hussein Obama, possibly a Muslim, wants to be our President? Wake up America !

Footnote: I am not sure of this, but it has been alledged that he was sworn in on the Quran for his current office and he refuses to pledge allegiance to the United States or put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is played! The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. Hello! Having a Muslim president would seem to fit the bill! Will you trust this man with our national secrets?
