Jeb 2016? Push one for English: NO… Push two for Spanish: NO

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

 
Before I expound, let me establish a premise: I am a Conservative—I believe in God, the Constitution, and that the best government is local government controlled by local citizens; and because I believe these things, I’m the #1 enemy of ruling-class politicians – both Democrat and Republican – in Washington D.C.  If you believe likewise, you, too, are hated, and if this is unclear, recall the IRS employees prosecuted for intimidating private citizens who oppose the president.  All the crooks cuffed-and-stuffed for what, substantively, not politically (thanks, media!), is worse than Watergate at every level.  

You can’t?  All those hearings, subpoenas, and dust-ups came to nothing?  … Read the rest »

    The thought of having to choose between Clinton and Bush in 2016 is enough to make me look into moving to another country! I was actually a fan of George W. Bush, not that I agreed with everything he did, but he did a good job when 9/11 happened. Jeb Bush is so far left, it is amazing that he can still have the “R” designation. You are right in saying that he is aligned with Obama on too many issues, and we cannot afford that to happen again!

    Not a chance!! Jeb and his ilk are the reason I’ve long ceased considering myself a “Republican” I’m with you. I will NEVER vote for that scum-sucking bottom feeder. Seriously. And DON’T tell me that means I’m voting for Killery. What it actually would mean is that I KNOW it really doesn’t matter. Pray it doesn’t come to a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea. However, if it does, I’ll let somebody else choose… Fortunately, I gave up the whiskey 20 years ago – if I was a drinking woman, I’d have reason to be drunk most of the time these days… Good article, Greg!

    Jeb is beyond like a rino. He’s a democrat in sheep’s clothing. I agree with you, Hammer. I’ll go with you on that trip. We simply can’t afford to vote the same people in and then expect we will get the change we want. A big, humongous NO to Jeb Bush.

    I can’t believe the GOP would even consider Jeb! He is everything we voted against in November! I really wonder if it is the GOP or is it more media driven. I think we need to be very aware of them & what they push. I also think we need to contact the national GOP with our thoughts. Also, contact Jeb himself & tell him no & why. Maybe he’ll get the hint. According to Rove (wish he was gone too!) Bush is just doing what he should do to see if there’s any interest in him running. He hasn’t made any decisions. So, we need to help him make that decision! I don’t know what I’d do if it was between Jeb & Hillary. Barf probably!

A few words on our inimical president’s trashing of the Constitution, the Rule of Law, the meaning of “citizenship,” and American society

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Sunday, November 23, 2014


Make no mistake, this is five million people being given amnesty that Congress rejected, that the American people reject, that will pull down the wages of legal citizens, that will make jobs harder to find, and that will create a system in the future that invites additional lawbreaking. It’s a dramatic, illegal act that will do great damage to America.”



~Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama)



First weekend after the long-term destruction of America by a man whom George Washington would’ve held in the stockade.  I’m sick to death—the poison is swallowed…. It will take time, but on Thursday, Obama transformed the country.Read the rest »

    Our nasty governor (or ex-governor) Quinn threw a nasty parting shot at us. He made caregivers have to attend a SIEU meeting in order to continue to get benefits (or something like that.) However, even though they had Saul Alinksy, Al Capone (though he and Alinsky have been dead for decades), and, I think, the Obummers, vote, he’s still OUT!

    What about the state legislatures? Congress is GOING to disappoint us. (To what degree, I’m not sure yet.) We have the governors and the state legislators now greatly under our control. We could always mass nullify Amnesty with the governors we have. We also can go for a Convention of the States with all of our legislatures that we have.

    It was a nail-biter here in NC for some time that night for sure, but freedom prevailed, and the HAG was removed from the Senate, where she managed to accomplish …….um, er, uh, well, six years of being in the Senate anyways. Thom Tillis has done good things for this state while in the NC House, and I have no doubt he will actually represent the people from his state in DC. The night was great, seeing that Scott Walker kept the Governor’s seat in Wisconsin was fantastic, as well as the other states that turned red. It must have made many heads spin, but that is the result of bad policies for six years! My only gripe is, here in NC, in Wake County, in Raleigh, the 7 county commissioners are all Democrats. I found that odd, considering the events of that night, that with all the red over the country, my county is now deep blue. It was a great night for freedom overall, and we all celebrated it with you!

    That was great! Coming from Illinois where our goveners usually end up making our license plates I was shocked when the Repulicans won but elated! It would have been better if Durbin and Madigan were gone but at least they’re the minority now! People are leaving this state in record numbers. When asked what you would do if you won the lottery on the news and most everyone says they would leave this state there’s a problem . Hopefully now brighter days are here!

Election Quickie — Dump Reid

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Tuesday, November 4, 2014

I know you’re tired.  We all are.  Fighting is difficult, so is worrying.  We love our country. It’s dying.  When something valued is wasted, when something cherished is lost, it hurts.  We mourn. 

But it’s here.  So fight.  Dump Reid.  Kill the cancer.  He’s a crook.  A liar.  He has no conscience.  No soul. 

On his grave—dance.  Ignore the alternative.… RINOs suck. 

But firsts things first: get Reid.  

Get 51…. It won’t be easy.  Republicans lose North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia, flounder to finish in Alaska and Kansas…. Win Iowa.
Kentucky, too (though I wish it were Bevin).  … Read the rest »

Halloween sucks, is bad for society, and I wish it would go away….

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Thursday, October 30, 2014

  

We tolerate, even promote, many things we once regarded as evil, wrong, or immoral.  And then we seek ‘explanations’ for an act that seems beyond comprehension. Remove societal restraints on some evils and one can expect the demons to be freed to conduct other evil acts.”

~Cal Thomas 

~~~

I hate Halloween – the ghouls, the goblins, the gore (both the blood and the terrifying masks of Al) – with a passion.  Really, HATE.  I prefer hemorrhagic fever to Halloween.  Wet socks. Plain yogurt.  No one likes made-up-holidays-for-the-purpose-of-selling-stuff, but Halloween evokes visceral loathing, deep bile.  

I do not like it in my culture, do not like it run by vultures, no sirree, I hate the thing, so pray for DEATH of Halloween.… Read the rest »

    I’d log onto the Huff Post, but I got banned (once for being too conservative, the second time because they kept blocking me and they had made a deal with FB where everyone had to go through FB in order to be able to post anymore. Loads of people, including libs, left. I realized that FB must be Leftist and bashed both HP and FB and said that I’d be honored if they banned me (well, I kept getting my comments, if they weren’t stuck in moderation queue till Doomsday, auto-deleted immediately upon posting) and they obliged. I can go through FB, oddly enough, and comment on a section there, but that’s about it.) Plus, I have you, Mark, and Rush to give me news and don’t need Arianna Snuffington anymore.

    Spot on, Greg! I cannot stand Halloween, and the demonic activities that surround it. In my hometown of Detroit, October 30 is known as Devil’s Night. You can take a guess as to the kind of activities to be found around the city. The entire idea of Halloween is in a sense a celebration of sin, a complete lack of morality. Dressing up your children as ghosts, imps, ghouls, etc. is a sign of a society defunct of morals.

    I admit, I’m not a big Halloween fan (though candy is yummy!). That being said, and this might shock you, in some ways I’m more comfortable with Harry Reid (well, maybe someone less of a despicable human being, but you get the point) than those who I feel take the thing too far the other way: i.e. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Waverly Place, My Little Pony, Smurfs, star Wars, etc are all bad etc because one might consider them occultic and hence they should be banned and blabity bla bla bla. Those people I tend to want to put in the same category as Westboro. I mean, if you’re gonna rant and rave about magic being used in Sleeping Beauty because it’s supposedly “of the devil”, please don’t do it around me.

    On the other hand, Halloween isn’t likely to be protested by the Mexicons as they have Day of the Dead the very next day, so we can at least be sure that one “holiday” (though some foreigner, I think Muslims, got offended by Halloween and tried to cancel it in a certain area or something.) that they won’t try and PC out of existence so they don’t “offend” Mexicons.

    I don’t need scaring though. I’m scared enough by what the Left is doing to our country.

    P.S., what about Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day? One is known for orgies and the other for drinking. However, you’re right about Halloween, as it’s known for BOTH.

My Mama tried for years to explain Halloween was evil .I let my children dress for Halloween and then…. I saw evil one day as my son about 14 decked himself out as a bloody mess. I was instantly cured of the evil. I have no problem with the outfits that are cute on the little ones but please not evil. There really are a lot of pagan Holidays. I can handle the ones that no longer celebrate evil.

    Harry Potter is fine. I don’t think I’d be into Twilight. (I”m also not into the Hunger Games. I hear that they don’t beat the tyrannical government, or they do, but another forms, in that movie, and that kids fight each other for sport.)

    What I did read that was evil was

    1.) Rules for Radicals (actually dedicated to the Devil himself, though I didn’t know it at the time I got the book to see the other side’s tactics.)

    2.) The Davinchi Code (It seems like a great adventure novel, and it is, but, in addition to saying that Jesus married Mary Magdeline, it also is a HUGE book on feminism and sexuality. I had to read it in college.)

    Also, I happen to be a Harry Potter fan. I personally think that most, if not all, people that hate the series have never even cracked open any of the books.

    Hi Greg, I don’t much of modern Halloween. When I was little a ghost was dressing up in a sheet. Now they have demonic features to costumes and Christians seem to go along with the flow. The Devil uses negative mainstream jargon to defunct Christmas and Easter. Some Christians don’t even celebrate Christmas or Easter because of their pagan roots. As a kid you can be taught to look at the positive of Christmas and like holidays was very worthwhile growing up. In the last days Satan is using all ploys to take the vestige away from all meaning of anything positive. It is a wonder how Satan has twisted all Saint’s Eve into a demonic occult gathering. It has gotten so bad that most people don’t pass put candy anymore anyway or anyhow. Being a kid is about exploring the world and maybe public schools should have parties on these holidays with strict rules, but hey Liberals would make it ridiculous anyhow…. I don’t even understand how society can say watching violent movies is okay, yet watching biblical movies is counter productive. Really just like in Noah’s time man has glorified themselves above God and when it gets dark down here God will ignore man’s plea for mercy.

    I h4ear you and understand completely my friend.

A meandering blog post about nothing in particular — except the Lotto and loneliness… Installment #4

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Sunday, October 12, 2014

 

Last night I played tennis against the side of a building down the street from my apartment…. I got a racket at the thrift store ($2 dollars), and the balls come from the bushes at Vandy, where the rich kids are too lazy to retrieve errant shots. I don’t have friends.  I hit tennis balls against a building because the building hits back.  But it never buys the beer, smiles, or yells “Eefus!” 

The other night my mom called and asked what I’ve been up to.  I told her, “Hammering forehand and backhand winners.”  

She said, “Wow, with who?”  

I said, “Bill Ding.”

But let me qualify.  … Read the rest »

    Greg, your story kinda sounds like me. I’m not a writer but I retired from a very crazy corp job, thanks to my husband’s successful career. We live in the boonies, which I absolutely love, but being removed from people, groups, clubs etc makes it harder to get out and do things. I’ve always been the loner type so it doesn’t bother me to be alone. I always seem to entertain myself or find something mindless to keep me busy.

    We should have a goal so we know which fork in the road to take. I hope you find what makes and keeps you happy. I just returned from my first trip abroad & I did thank God for American toilets. I have a cool picture to post to your Grand Canyon blog….I just keep getting distracted. Maybe I’ll do that right now.

Remember that, we may never meet face to face, but we ARE friends. We laugh together, we sometimes mourn together, we sometimes disagree but will be there for each other when needed. And despite what the atheists may think, God is not “imaginary” There is are very real entity behind it.

Two weeks in the hole….

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Thursday, October 9, 2014

 
Well, I did it, went AWOL, tore myself away from electronics and for two weeks disappeared. Nashville to Vegas to 200 miles from the nearest McDonald’s…. Cougars not cows.  Chasms not clowns.  Entering the Grand Canyon, reveling in Nature, I set out to remember how to sleep beneath stars, scramble up slabs, and converse with actual people.  No kidding, leaving for the set of a Martian flick (hail irony!) enhanced my social life, as I and a dozen others deplaned, descended, and set about the business of “taming the Colorado.”  Through the outdoor equivalent of the Sistine Chapel, we toiled!!… Read the rest »

It was many years ago, though and there were no electronics – no cellphones, no nothing. I can relate to being where everything you do is about just living and nature and God are SO big in the every day… But the rapids!!! Wow! Thanks for the links. Not for the faint of heart. Glad you were able to do that, and I admire you for it. Glad you’re back safe and sound, too. Great blog!!

    Changed the Canyon “cuts deep” to the Canyon “cuts ONWARD.” Makes more sense.

    Being fired is less likely than dying? Sounds like GREAT job security! Where do you get one of THOSE jobs?????

    Two weeks in the hole. That’s a BIG hole. (Not as big as Obama’s mouth, but big nonetheless.)

    Great blog, Greg! I think it reads quite well, and I love that you were able to get away and enjoy God’s creation for a bit, as opposed to this world that is crumbling around us. A big part of why I have a horse is to get out and enjoy the beauty of God, and it is good for us to get away from all the man-made mess as it makes it easier to be close to God. Keep up the good work, and know that it is not in vain.

    Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

    Fantastic place to be with nature, enjoy a little water roller-coaster action. and see the wonders God built for us over the millenniums. I did that when I was Greg’s age and had an awe inspiring adventure. What a memory !!!!!!!!!!

Remembering Sally, my crazy, awesome, sadly lost friend….

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Wednesday, September 10, 2014

 

My friend Sally died.  Last week, at age 46, she had an aneurysm and was rushed to the hospital, where she passed away.  I called friends I don’t call, said the “L-word,” and hung up.  Sally came from Oregon – my hometown – and when I lived in California, so did she.  We bonded.  We were far from home, a big place, and having a girl whose brother I knew, and whose mom knew my mom, who shared a history, was palliative.  Sixth grade was the first time I saw her.  She led cheers.  There were four—four girls we didn’t heed….… Read the rest »

    Sorry about your friend, but love the story of Moon. On Aug. 10th I had to have my 14 year old Schnauzer Rico get help for his journey into the next life. Rico was my bestest buddy and losing him can’t be expressed. We all know our pets will pass, but having to watch the horrific seizures he was having is something my brain can’t erase and even now brings me to tears. It was hotter than h*ll that day and many following, so I too had to “preserve him in the freezer” which broke my heart. He stayed there for a week and then mother nature gave me a cool day in which to go out and lay him to rest in my garden. Today is 30 days since his passing and it is getting easier. So bless you and everyone who helped your Sally make the passing of her friend Moon and traipsing miles to find that perfect resting place. Now I think I may go out and say another prayer for Rico, my bestest friend ever. <3 <3

    The friends you go out of your way for to do seemingly crazy things, are the hardest ones to bid farewell. I’m so sorry for your loss, but you hold precious memories of your dear friend, and very few have memories that bring such a laugh, and that is special.

    Greg, I am so sorry for your loss. Here’s a hug, brother. Your tribute to Sally is beautiful. I cried and laughed (if this isn’t batshit crazy, I need to bone up…)and cried again. You will probably never know just how much that meant to Sally, but I’m sure it was a LOT. God bless you.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. My daughter lost her poodle JJ. She had him cremated, and his remains put in my Dad’s garden. That was where he spent the majority of his time. He love eating the jalapeno peppers off the plants. That was a great piece. Thanks Greg for sharing.

    Loving story. I felt like i was up there on the rooftop watching the ships and in the woods burying Sally’s friend, Moon. My mom and my uncle’s three grandsons took my uncle’s ashes to a place in the woods just a little north in Oregon. Made me think of that. May your friend and her pet rest in the peace of the forest. My Uncle, too.

Coexist, America — everybody must get STONED

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Sunday, September 7, 2014

 

I was going to start this blog by stating the obvious: Barack Obama is an effeminate metrosexual who’s never handled a gun in his life, meaning that he’s alien to 90% of Americans who live more than ten miles from a Gender Reassignment Center; but instead I opted for: Barack Obama is not attached to our country. I wanted to say HIS country, but facts aren’t in evidence, and besides, these days every time his mouth moves, he sounds like Hal from 2001:a Space Odyssey.


Detached?  In the wake of a second journalist beheading (Steve Sotloff, of Miami, joins James Foley as a degenerate-pleasing YouTube sensation), Obama is out to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the midnight buffet at the Waldorf Astoria.  … Read the rest »

Haiku — the ancient art of drawing on eternity for health, wellness, and refrigerator

Posted by Greg Halvorson on Monday, September 1, 2014


Hello friends, I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day weekend and have, by now, either unloaded a box of 193 into an abandoned quarry, taken a run at this world record, or watched a collective 70 hours of football while ingesting FDA-approved formaldehyde.  It’s important, as we watch the future tank faster than Piers Morgan’s career, to “maintain,” and instead of moving toward lamenting that Drew Carey replaced Barker on “The Price is Right,” to be strong. 

 This means art—producing it, making it.  

No excuse.  True, not everyone’s “artistic,” but believe me, most artists, before they became artists, weren’t either.  … Read the rest »

    From my friend, Misty, in Texas…. GOOD STUFF!!

    ~ ~ ~

    Greg, here is my attempt at haiku. Lol!!! (No Yanni!!!!!!)

    Love, what is love worth?
    Midnight stroll in muted light.
    A dog barked loudly.

    A run for the crown.
    Gold lights and pearl gated ways.
    The dreams are frightful.

    He feels all our pain.
    He restores all tragic loss.
    He loves with no end.

    It’s in the small things.
    It’s in the bigger things too.
    The smile of a friend.

    The hug of a child.
    The wind in their flowing manes.
    The calm exhale from release.

    The laugh given freely.
    The warmth shared so easily.
    Ghosts and rumors of candles.

    Does love exist today?
    A rumor surely flying.
    Work hard, tie the devil’s hands.

    ~ ~ ~

    BRAVO!!
