An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, "They wouldn't take me out while I was alive, I don't want them to take me out when I'm dead."

Once again, Congress has joined a dangerous political path in passing the "Disclose Act" through the lower House. Liberal Republican, and King RINO Mike Castle of Delaware sponsored the bill (Castle-Van Hollen Bill HR 5175) and co-Author Castle was one of only TWO Republicans to vote FOR it.
The "Grassroots Gag Order," as I like to call it, provides political cover for far left special interest groups and unions, but will significantly handcuff the activity of grassroots activists and organizations across the country.
We must fight this legislation in the senate. We must stop this legislation from becoming law. And in the process, we must also fire Mike Castle from Congress.
Mike Castle is more liberal than Arlen Specter!
-Sponsored the Disclose Act
-Voted FOR Cap and Trade
-Voted FOR TARP

-Voted AGAINST allowing D.C. residents to own firearms
-Voted FOR Removing "Under GOD" from the Pledge of Allegiance
-Voted AGAINST Balancing the Budget in 10 Years
-Voted AGAINST the Iraq Troop Surge
-Voted AGAINST Missile Defense
-Consistent "F" Rating from the N.R.A.
Just yesterday, Mark Levin called me a "Reagan Conservative" on his nationally syndicated show. In the segment with Mark, we discussed the importance of limiting government and fighting back against the Lords of the Backroom and Washington elite.
Conservatives across this country are looking for fresh, liberty minded leadership in Washington. I'm running for Senate because I believe in our founding principles and I believe it's time we once again view the Constitution as indispensable.
I need your help. This Grassroots Gag Order, Cap-and-Trade, and many other bad laws will take effect if we do not remove RINO's like Mike Castle. To do this, we need a well funded campaign.
Please consider making a contribution to my campaign for Senate. The good news is, your donation of $10, $25, $50, $100, or more goes a very long way in a small state like Delaware.
Together we can take back the seat once held by the most liberal Democrat in Congress... Joe Biden. United we can get the Republican Party back on track, and put Washington back in the hands of the people.
Standing with you for liberty,
-- Christine O'Donnell

"Plug the damn hole."
We the people need to send the same message regarding
the illegal immigration into our land...
A video made by a team member at Grassfire's ResistNet has
exposed Obama's real amnesty agenda. It's so damaging
that the Obama team has already issued a denial.
Here's what happened.
An Arizona ResistNet team member went to a town hall
meeting with and captured on video
Kyl's discussion of his closed-door meeting with
In that meeting, according to Kyl, Obama admitted that
the Left is using the open borders crisis as leverage
to force conservatives to support amnesty. Here's what
"I met with the President in the Oval Office,
just the two of us". The President said, 'The
problem is - if we secure the border, then
you-all won't have any reason to support
comprehensive .' In other
words, they are holding it hostage."
Go here to watch the video:
UNFORTUNATELY, someone is tampering with the grassfire.net
LINKS to this video evidence from the town hall meeting but
when that little dirty trick is resolved, we will give you the LINKS
again when they are not underhandedly made inaccessible.

The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100."
The third boy says, "I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!"
Marion and I were so privileged to attend the Mt. Tahoma Graduation Ceremonies of our granddaughter Riley Blacketer this week. Congratulations to her and all the 2010 grads and a special Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there too.
Services today at TLBC were great. My sermon was on "Christ and the 7th Commandment" and the sermon outline is available on the front page of our church website here. One man, Rick King, came forward professing faith in Christ and asking for scriptural baptism. Today was his birthday too. He is 47. We will be making arrangements for the baptism in the near future.
We had a real good week this week. I attended a Campaign Kick-off Meeting for Jesse Miller, Steve Cook and Terry Harder. They are running for State Congress Position 1, State Congress position 2 and State Senate in my District (29th) here in Washington and It was great to meet them and be a part of of their planning. It was good to meet Kent Keel who is running for Pirece County Auditor. And then I also had the opportunity to meet Jesse Young at the Tacoma 912 Project Meeting. He is running against Norm Dix in the National House of Representatives and I have high hopes that he will do well in that race. My candidate that was running against Patty Murray in the National Senate has dropped out of the race and I am now supporting Clint Didier who was endorsedby Sarah Palin and the Tea Party People.

The union bosses are counting on their handpicked leader -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- to deliver.
What Big Labor wants is simple but frightening: monopoly control over every public safety worker in the country.
And now, with control of the White House to go along with large majorities in Congress, the union bosses believe their time has come.
It's up to you and me to make sure they don't get their way.
That's why it's vital you sign the petition to your Senators IMMEDIATELY.

I am reminded that today is FLAG DAY.
We are flying Old Glory today at our house.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.
The present resident of the White House recently had a Press Conference and there was something very different about his Press Conference than the Press Conferences of all of the other recent "Constitutionally Qualified" Presidents. I thought Flag Day would be an appropriate day to point this out. All of the other men had the Stars and Stripes prominently displayed behind the podium but not Mr. Obama. He has his plain gold curtains and familiar columns but no red, white and blue.
That should not surprise us however when we remember the controversy during his campaign days when he refused to wear a flag for a lapel pin and would not put his hand over his heart during the National anthem etc. Mr. Obama is more aligned with and dedicated to the 57 (Arab) States than to the 50 (American) States.

While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray, "Dear Lord, please don't let me be late...But please don't shove me either!"
My sermon today was on "Christ and the 6th Commandment." See the outline on the front page of our church website here.

The statists have launched a scheme designed to do two things they love more than anything else: vastly increase the size and power of government - and give our federal masters more control over our personal business.
It's getting harder and harder for them to conceal their true intentions. And people are waking up to it.
This isn't about what Congress wants to "give" Americans.
It's not about health care. It's about power. It's about what THEY get. It's always been about what they get.
And their "take" is staggering. Passage of ObamaCare means:
*** Statist politicians will collect more than $570 BILLION in new taxes on everything from prescription drugs and private insurance plans to medical device manufacturers;
*** Big Government will grow even bigger as the IRS alone will hire thousands of new employees to "ensure compliance;"
*** The power of politicians and bureaucrats will expand dramatically as they FORCE U.S. citizens to buy insurance as a condition of citizenship and seize unprecedented control over American health care and businesses of every size.We can give up and give in. Or we can FIGHT BACK.
Well, as you can imagine, Ron Paul is fighting back, and he's asked us to take action alongside him.
The battle starts with repealing the most repulsive provision of ObamaCare - the government mandate FORCING Americans to purchase health insurance.
And guess who will be enforcing this mandate: our old pals at the IRS, who may diminish or completely withhold your tax refund unless you either carry Obama-approved health insurance or pony up more of your money to cover the fine.
A fine that could cost households and businesses thousands of dollars.
If you agree that we can't let this stand, won't you please sign the first page of Congressman Ron Paul's END THE MANDATE Act (H.R. 4995)?

Several were missing in the services today and attendance was down quite a bit but we kept on keeping on and God was good to us. My sermon outline on "Christ and the 5th Commandment" is on the front page again of our church website. click here
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?""
The mother replied, "Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life."
The child thought about this for a moment then said, "So why is the groom wearing black?"
