Just a few comments from a Politically Incorrect Gal

Well, I'd thought of quite a few things to write about this week, but didn't get to it, so of course, the "senior moment" took over and it all left me. On Facebook this am., there was a "survey" about political correctness in our language and whether it had "gone too far", etc. Of course, our language has changed so much lately, that the words we had specific meanings for has turned into something else! We listen to the politicians talk and we THINK we know what they are saying, only to find out that they didn't say what we thought they were saying. Take the newest member to get elected to the House of Rep. in Washington: he promised to not vote for the health care bill, but DID vote for the bill and promptly broke 4 of his campaign "promises" within one hour of being sworn in.

A friend of mine wrote about "common sense", but I believe that is now an "oxymoron." It is no longer common nor does it make sense. We are being manipulated by an elite system who believes they know more about what is the best for us instead of we ourselves. And, I find I feel I have to be discreet with my "liberal democrat friends" since I am now not moving in the "new" direction. I STILL believe in the INDIVIDUAL and the importance of freedom and the Constitution, but I can see that this is NOT the "NEW" way. I am to support others who I am NOT responsible for, who had nothing to do with raising me or giving me values, who did not support me when I was working my way through college, and who, seemingly, are not willing to be responsible for themselves!

So what happened to thinking for oneself? And using the brain the God (oops!) created for us? Are you still wanting to be spoon fed everything that is tossed out there? Or are you wanting to RESEARCH what's really happening to us in the country? Do you think you make a difference or are you willing to sit back and watch history repeat itself here in the "Good Ole USA"?

TOLERANCE: endurance; the disposition to tolerate beliefs, practices, or habits differing from one's own;


  1. Good Morning Mrs. Newman!!

    Thank you for sending me your blog site!! I didn't know you had one. . =D

    It does seem like our freedoms are now being 'taken' away. I say 'taken' because they are not really being taken. WE ARE GIVING THEM AWAY!!!

    We started to give them away when we no longer individual and as a nation went to the Bible for answers to every single area of life. We gave them away by not disciplining our children and sending them off to be educated and to work for the state. We gave them up without a fight when the culture started to dictate what the American family life should look like!!

    But that is not the end of the story. As Christians start taking dominion (like the Bible commands) in every area of culture for Christ, raises up as many children as God blesses in the fear and admonition of the Lord, and thinks multi-generationaly, we will see a difference.

    I'm sorry if that came on a little strong!! This is something I feel very strongly about! Thank you for blogging about it!!

    Have a great rest of the day!!

  2. Lily! Thank you for commenting. I figured no one was reading! I'm glad you did; yes! I agree with you, but the rest of America doesn't quite get it yet, I'm afraid. We gave important values away so we could HAVE THINGS(!!) and be "prosperous". God wants us to be prosperous, but I think He has another idea of prosperity besides that of $$ (money).I'm just getting started in this "blogging" thing; who know where it's to go. Love ya!
