God Button Home DepotToday’s news shares a disturbing story of a man who was FIRED from his job at Home Depot for wearing a pin—a pin which he’d been wearing every day for over a year. What horrible message did this pin convey? It’s an American flag with says “One Nation Under God, Indivisible.” Horrific, right?

What’s horrific is that Home Depot fired the man because he refused to remove it and replace it with their store sanction pin which states “United We Stand.”  Kind of hypocritical don’t you think? Unless this guy is “united” with the anti-religious and anti-patriotic stand of Home Depot he loses his livelihood!

What concerns me most about this is that the pin was not simply a religious one in nature. It was a quotation from our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance. To me, Home Depot’s behavior in this matter is an act of treason, plain and simple. So I implore every Christian American to PLEASE boycott Home Depot. We must fight back on these issues folks while we still can! Please let your voices be heard!! Contact Home Depot today and let them know that their actions are not acceptable to We The People of this great Christian nation! We cannot afford to be a silent group any longer. 

The main number for Home Depot is 1-800-Home Depot. You can also go to their main site www.homedepot.com and send them an e-mail. I strongly recommend that you do both!! You can also try 1-800-553-3199. By the way, Home Depot is another one of those businesses that requires you to press 1 in order to proceed in English!

Perhaps our citizens are waiting for the news to flash a headline that we’ve been invaded by a terrorist group and their location is X and their numbers are X and they are armed with X and their intent is X. Unfortunately, as a result of many only willing to recognize such an act as a genuine threat on our freedoms, many will not act in spite of a very real, more subtle, strategic and deadly war brought within our borders.

There are over eight thousand Americans being killed every year by this infiltration.

I believe that some serious education is necessary for American citizens so that they can rationally and logically see this situation for what it is.

illegal-immigrants3For the record, I wholeheartedly embrace any foreign immigrants who come to our nation—legally. I love their input and talents which are so different from the norm. However, tolerance for illegal acts by illegal immigrants is costing our nation everything we hold dear. Consequently, I have no tolerance for the initial and subsequent illegal acts that stem from the vast amount of illegal aliens. Why? Because when they come here illegally, an enormous domino effect occurs which drastically compromises the freedoms and liberties which so many have paid for financially and with their lives.

Here are the facts:
– Illegal aliens have already proven themselves to be unprofitable citizens to our nation as they begin the relationship with the U.S. on a note deception ie: breaking the law to enter our country. Based on conservative studies, over 60% of all violent crimes are committed by illegal immigrants. SIXTY PERCENT! Imagine 60% less rape, murder, assault crimes happening if illegal immigrants were unable to enter this country. Does that chip away at your freedom?

– Many illegal aliens, including terrorists, use the fairness of our justice system to abuse U.S. citizens. Case in point, illegal aliens have successfully sued a rancher in Arizona for “abuse” because he caught them and held them at gun point for illegally crossing the border onto his land.

In addition to that, the property of Casey Nethercott now belongs to illegal aliens. It was SEIZED by the U.S. Government and given to two illegal immigrants from El Salvador and Mr. Nethercott is in JAIL! See this site for additional information: http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2009/02/illegal_alien_l.html
The freedom of American citizens is now being compromised as a result of the dollar signs that legal activists groups seek to gain is using our court system to assist illegal immigrants.

– Illegal aliens are now costing the state of California over $9 billion a year to care for. They continue to cost other key states billions of dollars per year as well. Do you think that your tax costs go up and up simply because of inflation? Think again. They go up because of our non-existence borders and unenforced laws. Do you have a say about how your tax dollars are spent and when they increase and by how much? No. How’s that for freedom and liberty from tyrants?

illegal-drugs2– Over 90% of all illegal drugs are brought into this nation by illegal immigrants! 90%!!!

– Legal immigrants are screened for contagious diseases. Illegal immigrants obviously are not. In spite of many plagues having been eradicated since the 1940’s and 1950’s malaria, dengue, leprosy, hepatitis A-E, chagas disease, and a deadly multi-drug resistance form of tuberculosis cases have been discovered in record numbers in CA, AZ, TX, FL, and NJ and NY! In fact, the majority of these diseases are being found present in illegal aliens. (see more information at http://www.usillegalaliens.com/impacts_of_illegal_immigration_diseases.html)
Not only do these diseases cost lives, but they also increase our health spending in the U.S. to treat those who come in contact with the disease, the cost of uninsured, and the cost to properly staff health practitioners in order to properly take on this infiltration pandemic. It is an absolute MYTH to say that the illegal immigrants take on jobs that American Citizens do not. The jobs are not the problem. The pay is the problem. And why is the pay so low? Because there are so many willing illegal immigrants willing to work for it. It’s a manifestation of supply and demand. So don’t blame this on the American work ethic. Assign appropriate blame and encouragement of terrorism to the companies that willingly engage in such activities. Does this affect the freedom of American Citizens and their right to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Absolutely.

– Over $155 billion a year is spent on the care, (there are well over 11 million uninsured illegal aliens in our nation) education, safety, public services, such as libraries, etc.) and welfare of illegal immigrants or their family members here in the U.S. Over $45 billion a year is NOT in circulation in the U.S. because it is sent to the homelands of the illegal immigrants. And finally, it is estimated that over $2 billion in tax dollars are not collected due to cash paid day laborers and other tax avoidance issues practiced by illegal immigrants and their aids.

deportation2– The fact that illegal migrant families may be split up due to deportation is not a reason NOT to enforce the law. If my father had robbed a bank and then used that money to support and sustain me, is that reason enough not to deport him? NO. Just because he’s my father? NO. And yet we hear this excuse repeatedly as reasons why less deportation is utilized against illegals.

– California is just one example, but it recently announced that it was going to release as many as 57,000 prisoners over the next 3 years. How many of the CA inmates do you think are illegal immigrants? Overcrowding in prisons is a problem in every single one of our states. Your tax dollars pay for the incarcerations of prisoners. And now California is setting the precedence that your neighborhoods will now be less safe because illegal immigrants are overcrowding the prisons! Let’s be mindful as well that some of those who will be released are indeed illegal immigrants. So now we have them scorning our laws in the first place, being found guilty of scorning them yet again, and now we’re not going to deport them. We’re going to let them go freely.

overcrowded-schools1Our schools are overcrowded, not only with illegal immigrants themselves, but also with children of illegal immigrants. As a result the education of your children is being compromised. States are not able to pay teachers what they are worth because they instead struggle with the overcrowding problems, costs of free school lunches, having to accommodate the language pediment which may be a impediment, etc.

– We are not being “un-Christian” in deporting these citizens. The scriptures are replete with examples of consequences which will always follow actions of error. And the scriptures likewise promise dire consequences to us if we fritter away this wonderful land we’ve been given as a result of ignoring the value of the freedoms we have. How can we show we value our freedoms if we’re willing to let others trample on them so abundantly?

war-in-iraq1Finally, we are losing too many lives to the lawlessness of illegal aliens. We went to war because 2,998 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks. As a result we’ve lost over 4,000 soldiers in our war on Iraq. And yet there are 12 U.S. Citizens dying every day at the hands of an illegal alien! That’s over 4,300 murders EVERY YEAR (no other violent crimes) and fruitful lives of our citizens are lost every day as a result of the blind eye we have towards enforcing illegal immigration! 13 people are killed every day at the hand of illegal alien drivers. That’s over 4,700 American killed EVERY YEAR. Yet no war has been declared against this terrorist act! 8 American children are victims of sexual crimes committed by illegal immigrants EVERY DAY! That’s over 2,900 annually! Of the illegal aliens that have been the subject of incarceration studies it was discovered that illegal immigrants who were in jail had been arrested an average of EIGHT TIMES with an average of THIRTEEN offenses each!

It’s one thing to look at this problem in on small portion at a time. But when you see the big picture, perhaps you can better realize just how serious of a problem it is. Let’s open our borders widely to legal, contributing citizens. The cost otherwise is just too great!

veterans-day1Please, please, please take this seriously. Please have your voice heard by your public officials at all levels. We don’t need to resort to a Boston Tea Party kind of act or violence of any kind. We simply need to pummel the lawmakers with what’s on our minds in this regard. They truly think we are apathetic, that we aren’t paying attention or that we won’t ever notice or organize ourselves to make a difference.

No, I’m not going to give you some kind of a electronic petition to sign and to forward on. You’ve got to take this country back with your own heart and mind. Blood has been spilt for the freedoms we still enjoy. Taking some time to communicate sincere thoughts is the least we can do in their honor and in honor of our generations to come. This is too great of a country for us to just give away in this manner.

12-days-of-christmas-2

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.

It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.

  1. The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
  2. Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
  3. Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.
  4. The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke &
    John.
  5. The five golden rings recalled the Torah *or* Law, the first five books
    of the Old Testament.
  6. The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
  7. Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy
    Spirit–Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution,
    Leadership, and Mercy.
  8. The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
  9. Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit–Love, Joy,
    Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self
    Control.
  10. The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.
  11. The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
  12. The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in
    the Apostles” Creed.So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol…so pass it on if you wish.

I’d like to think that I’m mindful of what I have to be grateful for on a regular basis, but I’m sure I take way too much for granted. 

 

I am truly blessed with an amazing husband and some incredibly supportive family members and friends.  But I’m also blessed with a phenomenal team of support in our office who possess amazing talents and depth of character.

 

Additionally, we are ALL greatly blessed with the ability to achieve, regardless of how painful the trials and challenges feel at times. The question is will we dare to believe in suitably high achievements? 

 

I pray that I never get fearful of the heights of challenge and achievement for I know I will then cease growing. I believe that wishing away the challenges I encounter, however painful they may be, is discounting and dismissing His wisdom in the application of His involvement in my life.  Personal realization for me…I am grateful for Him in my life and thus will never minimize His involvement by referring to him as some code name such as “the universe” or “nature” etc.  He is indeed the Savior of the world and has clearly earned the right for me to be grateful to Him and to acknowledge Him by name, unashamedly…Jesus Christ.

 

May each of you have a joyful reunion of family and friends held together by gratitude this time of year.

 

Sincerely,

Kellene
