Coaching us in Common Sense

Passion is addictive. For me, it's oxygen. But it must be, hear me on this one, it must be passion founded ON justice, grounded IN truth. Without either, it's just self-righteous anger. And rank hot air.

This conversation with Glenn Beck and Craig T. Nelson, however, is sweet rebuke against what is destruction of our future and our country: too much government, too much control, too much taxation, too little freedom.

I always loved "Coach" too. Great show.

Uninvited guests

I love those Hallmark movies about government agencies regulating the lives of American citizens living their lives and minding their own business. It always starts with a knock on the door and free speech as the door mat.
Wipe your feet. Government control really stains the carpet.

Couple: County Trying To Stop Home Bible Studies

POSTED: 5:31 pm PDT May 25, 2009
UPDATED: 7:43 am PDT May 28, 2009
A local pastor and his wife claim they were interrogated by a San Diego County official, who then threatened them with escalating fines if they continued to hold bible studies in their home, 10News reported.

Bring out Saul Alinksy's, "Rules for Radicals" and hide the bibles in the cookie jars. The government is here.
Attorney Dean Broyles of The Western Center For Law & Policy was shocked with what happened to the pastor and his wife.
Broyles said, "The county asked, 'Do you have a regular meeting in your home?' She said, 'Yes.' 'Do you say amen?' 'Yes.' 'Do you pray?' 'Yes.' 'Do you say praise the Lord?' 'Yes.'"
They also say "hello" and "my name is". Notify the AA.
The county employee notified the couple that the small bible study, with an average of 15 people attending, was in violation of county regulations, according to Broyles.
Those religious nuts love their small groups and snack foods. Gotta put a stop to that because of global warming or something.
Broyles said a few days later the couple received a written warning that listed "unlawful use of land" and told them to "stop religious assembly or apply for a major use permit" -- a process that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Baking cookies is out without a food handlers permit. It's Keeblers or it's nothing. Make the choice.
"If the county thinks they can shut down groups of 10 or 15 Christians meeting in a home, what about people who meet regularly at home for poker night? What about people who meet for Tupperware parties? What about people who are meeting to watch baseball games on a regular basis and support the Chargers?" said Broyles.
Good point. Chargers fans may also utter the name of Jesus. No more Friday Night Football without assemble permits.

Life: Imagine the Possibilities

Joyfully poetic. Hauntingly gorgeous. Morally right.

I can't help but smile.

Patriotism goes viral

Hello 912ers. Welcome to a small piece of collective patriotism in the digital world. And yes, we will be breaking into song sporadically.
Grab your tambourine.

We held a general meeting last night. It was my first. The meeting started with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.
I had a sudden flashback of standing in that breezy gym in First Grade, repeating those words every morning and stressed I would mispronounce "indivisible".
But that was how each day started in First Grade. And whether or not disputes happened over sharing the Forest Green crayon, Danny sticking his finger in my peanut butter sandwich, or Jerod pulling my pigtails, we were always united by morning, standing together with the Pledge.

Good times, good times.

But I'm all grown up now. I know how to defend the honor of my peanut butter sandwich. And I understand with sobriety the meaning of those words. Last night, I spent a few minutes with Americans who understand it too.
Like you.

So whether patriotism is suddenly cool again, or suddenly passe, I don't care. We are the individuals who actually run this country, who grease the gears, who turn the cogs, and who will push the country to the nearest garage when it stalls. Then we'll pay to have it fixed.
And because we don't wake up each morning and set our beliefs and morals to the most recent opinion poll, we are the true saviors of this nation's future. And we don't even wear unflattering tights.

So Welcome! If you are looking for a worthy cause, you've found it.
Also, find us on Facebook, the Tulsa 912 Project.

This blog, to succeed, will need you rolling up your sleeves. Send news or videos or even commentary for posting. This 912 movement only happens with volunteers. And each one of you is needed.

And feel free to send me questions and comments. If you have a specific talent, I can assure you, we need you.
