This is my first post in quite some time. I haven't the time to sit at my computer and put my thoughts down like I would like, so I just spend the little time I have reading my favorite blogs and occasionally leave a little comment here and there. But now, On the eve of an extremely important election, I feel the need to express to anyone whom may come across this blog to exercise your right and vote. As well as pray!

Personally, my vote is for McCain for the simple reason that he is first and formost a real patriot, who has the experience and fortitude to run the country in a time when those characteristics are needed now more than ever. Even though he has gone out of his way to show himself to be a little to "bipartisan" on important issues, he has convinced me that he can do an adequate job of both strengthen our economy as well as our national security. Obama, unlike McCain has no record to run on. And what is more troubling is his much publicized past associations with radicals that hate America. That alone should throw up a red flag in front of those who are considering him for President!

So in short, the choice is yours. Two very different men with very different visions on how to run your country. Your vote matters.

The "Hush Rush" Campaign

Time to silence the Conservatives and Christians!

Now that the Democrats have regain power in Congress, they are once again pushing the so-called Fairness Doctrine, which is legislation that would force the national broadcasters like Limbaugh, Dr. Dobson, and Hannity to make time to hear both sides of an issue.

I listen to Rush and Christian radio broadcastings daily. The Democrats have tried their best to compete with the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity and they have failed miserably. So it appears that their next move is to force national broadcasters (conservative) to allow opposing (liberal) view points. Believe me, if the Democrats were the ones leading the way in talk radio, there would be no "fairness" doctrine to speak of.

I can't tell you how much this TICKS ME OFF! ...Sore Losers!

Poll: 56% of Americans Believe Media Coverage in Iraq 'Inaccurate'

From Editor&Publisher

January 04

New York : A new Gallup poll released today reveals that most Americans -some 56%- believe that the news media's coverage of the war in Iraq is generally "inaccurate."

But in what way? Of those who feel that coverage has been inaccurate, 61% feel it has painted too negative a picture there, while 36% say it has pictured it as too positive.

That means that overall, about one-third of Americans believe that the news media presents too negative a picture of what is happening in Iraq; one out of five believe that the news media presents too positive a picture, and the rest say that the news media coverage is about right or have no opinion.

Looking at the partisan divide, Gallup explains: "Two-thirds of Republicans believe that the news media's coverage of Iraq is both inaccurate and makes the situation there appear worse. Only one-quarter say that the news media coverage is accurate.

"On the other hand, a majority of Democrats (55%) say that the news media coverage of the situation there is accurate, with most of the rest saying that it is inaccurate and biased toward making the situation there appear better than it really is. Independents' views on the issue are between the two extremes of the Republicans and Democrats.

I'm not surprised at this finding. Most people realize that the media has always been more interested in showing the destructive side of war, rather than the positive side. Rarely, can I pick up my local paper and see a "positive" headliner on the war in Iraq. Usually, the front page is totally negative.

I can not accept the line of thinking that says that after three years of U.S occupation, we have accomplished NOTHING more than a collection of "road-side, bombed-out" vehicles, and flag-draped coffins of dead American soldiers and Iraqi citizens. We must have accomplished something good while in Iraq, but you would never know it by watching your daily news coverage.

Let's see what happens with more troops on the way?

Have A Merry Christmas Everybody!

I truly hope and pray that everyone who comes in contact with my blog will have the best Christmas ever this year.

Here are just a few things to remember on Christmas day;

When opening the presents, it's the thought that counts. Try to be a little more tolerant when visiting the inlaws, stay awhile, don't leave too early, that will look too obvious. Save the bows. Sing a few Christmas songs. Watch "It's A wonderful Life" on TV. Buy plenty of batteries for the toys. And finally, be sure to remember those who have lost loved ones this year. And those who are away from home fighting for freedom in foreign lands.

Did I leave anything out?

To: Everybody
From: Ron

Merry Christmas!

Colson Supports McCain's Iraq War Strategy

Chairman of BreakPoint Prison Ministries Chuck Colson, an former Nixon Aide, has stated recently that he agrees with Sen John McCain's proposal of sending additional troops to Iraq. Colson, whom I respect and admire, goes on to say that McCain deserves the "Profiles of Courage award" for taking such a stand...Interesting.

Here's the article;

I personally do not have a problem with sending more troops to Iraq if I knew that it would make a real difference in securing Iraq and the region. This is a "quick fix" solution to a long term problem that I'm afraid America has no stomach for.

YMCA Returns To Christianity

By Jenny Jarvie

Every day, 2,500 people pour into the Grenn Hills Family YMCA to lift weights, shoot hoops and swim. Scott Rrall believes many are searching for salvation.

On a recent evening, as disco music blared out of an aerobics room down the hall, Reall led a small group in prayer. Heads bowed, hands clasped, about a dozen men and woman sang "Amazing Grace." They had come to the YMCA-some in pearls, some in tank tops-to share their stuggles with depression, and their hope that Christ would pull them through.

"People come to the YMCA hurting," said Reall, who gave up his work as a fitness trainer to run a Christian ministry at Green Hills Y. "alcoholism, bulimia, divorce, grief, pornography addiction, loneliness, drug abuse...They're looking for so much more than exercise."

Reall is at the vanguard of a small but growing movement to bring Christ back into the Young Men's Christian Assn. About 13% of the more than 2,600 YMCA branches across the country have set up special committees to promote Christianity. Hundreds of Y leaders convene each year to swap ideas on how to "lift up the C in the YMCA.",0,214217,full.story?coll=la-home-headlines

About once a week I make deliveries to a local YMCA. As soon as you walk in the door, you will see posters and literature on the walls and counter tops offering help and encouragement to anyone in need. As you continue to walk through the complex, you get the feeling that the people who work or workout here are just normal people looking to better their lives. You don't see the massive egos associated with your "high dollar" fitness clubs. These are people of all ages looking for a simple place to exercise or workout and just be healthy... like my Dad occasionally does.

I absolutely love seeing Christian based organizations like the Salvation Army and the YMCA return to their Christian roots. I hope that more historic organizations like the Y will make the same types of changes that will impact society for Christ like they were initially created to do so long ago.
