Little Man Shooting Stuff!

My grandson Ethan and I made a stop at Bass Pro Shop Saturday... just had to shot some stuff! First it was paintball and then air rifle... It was awesome!

"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good!" George Washington

"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." Alexander Hamilton

"Men trained in arms from their infancy, and animated by the love of liberty, will afford neither a cheap or easy conquest." From the Declaration of the Continental Congress, July 1775.

"As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives [only] moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion to your walks." Thomas Jefferson, writing to his teenaged nephew.

Congressional Reform Act of 2010

Someone sent this note to me and I thought I would share it with you! I think this would right quite a few wrongs in government. We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House. These people will become American heroes!

Congressional Reform Act of 2010

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six year Senate terms

B. Six Two year House terms

C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension: A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as theAmerican people.

7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work. What say you?

Peace, Karl

Can You Believe This?

I believe that your financial situation can turn around for the better no matter what world economics are doing, if you will build your faith on the Word of God and trust Him as your source!

Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God! So lets see what the Word says about our prosperity… and decide to accept it as truth

I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name. Isaiah 45:3 NAS

And then the same verse in the Message Bible says; I'll lead you to buried treasures, secret caches of valuables—Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.

God has ordained my prosperity, so he has committed to be my source! God will use my present employment, investments, inheritances, favor, and gifts as instruments to bring it to me, but I never see them as my source!

As Christians we must remember… The question is not “WHAT'S MY SOURCE?” but “WHO'S MY SOURCE?” And the answer is God!

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19 NAS

You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. Phil 4:19 MES

Give, and it will be given to you. It will pour into your lap a good measure--pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return. Luke 6:38 NAS

If we will activate our faith, and not walk in fear, God will come through for us! Meditate on these things and not your circumstances and watch your life prosper!

Blessings, Karl
