WordPress Script

Hi all.

It’s been a busy time this summer so my posts have been very light as of late. But I thought I would go ahead and share with you a bash script for installing WordPress.

Iowa Still First

It appears that Iowa is still “First in the the Nation.” But this time not in the realm of political candidates. The Iowa City Council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance to ban drones, automated traffic cameras and license-plate readers. This ordinance is likely to pass when it comes up to a vote in 2 weeks time. However it doesn’t prevent the use of red-light cameras and since it originated by petition it only has a 2 year life span.

This is a victory for the Republic and the State of Iowa. However we still have a long way to go. Knowing that the Iowa City Council and repeal this ban in 2 years and do what they want instead of listening to the will of the people that elected them is very frightening. I guess the residence of Iowa City need to watch their councilmen very closely over the next 2 years to insure the will of the people is maintained.

118 Times

One hundred eighteen times. That is 118. The number of times that the head of the IRS visited the Obama White House to speak privately with the President of the United States. There are only 52 weeks in a year. The math is easy on that one. And by comparison, the head of the IRS under President Bush visited the White House 1 time only.

These visits to the Obama White House took place during the year running up to the President’s reelection. And at the same time the IRS was making it very difficult for conservative grass roots organizations to get established. It is not a conspiracy theory here, it is only facts.

There is no explanation as to why the head of the IRS visited with the President. If the head of the IRS visited President Bush that many times. There would be an outcry by the media and others as to why this happened. What was going one. After all Republican’s are “out to get save the rich from taxes” so why didn’t President Bush meet with the IRS head that often or even more?

Why hasn’t any other president or head of state or government meet with the head of their internal revenue department that often. It hasn’t happened anywhere in the world or in the history of these United States. This is a first.

The IRS has police like powers. The IRS has it’s own courts with its own judges. You would find this out if you ever attempted to sue the IRS about anything, especially your taxes. The IRS is a corrupt organization from its inception. And with the current President, even more so and more transparent about it. The IRS doesn’t care if it is investigated. Nothing will come of it.

What needs to happen is the grass roots movement of a Fair Tax. To repeal the 16th Amendment and end the IRS forever. Without that movement and action. Nothing is ever going to change with the IRS. We will have it and ObamaCare for the rest of our days. And the corruption will even grow worse as time moves forward and the IRS takes over the healthcare of millions of Americans.

Compromise

Throughout the legislative session. On both the Federal and State level. There is always the talk about compromise. But lets look at the facts of such compromise. Generally to compromise is to come to a settlement of differences by mutual concessions. And most people think of that when the legislature is in session. However, compromise does have other definitions as well. Just as exposing or making vulnerable to danger. To jeopardize. Then compromise is when your computer gets a virus, then it is compromised. When the secrets of a government or the military is leaked to the enemy or the public when it should not be. Then it is compromised.

Within the halls of Congress. It is those of the liberal factions always demanding that those on the conservative side compromise. And in turn when this happens, as it always does, the conservatives end up loosing in some way. Because they have been compromised by their own actions. The liberals never give up anything of their own to be sacrificed.

No the liberals never expose themselves or make themselves vulnerable. Time and time again the conservatives do this and loose not only their principles but face with other conservatives and the general public that sent them to be their representives in government.

It is high time that we take a page from the same playbook. That we stand our ground. Draw that line that we never cross. And if that leads to gridlock in government. Then it leads to gridlock. The liberals have causes that must be funded. If the conservatives do not cross the line, then it doesn’t get funded. The liberals would be forced to make that crossing for the first time. Or everything would grind to a halt.

Additionally that side is always campaigning. And we should too. Fire against fire. And take our country back to being the greatest nation on God’s earth.

The New Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America have elected to allow homosexual members into their ranks. I’m sure the founder of the scouting movement would be appalled by this recent development. But I guess it’s time for scouting to become something different. No longer will this be a movement of young men learning how to be stewards of the natural world. Now “Boy Scouts” takes on a new meaning entirely.

I pray that the Churches who fund and sponsor local BSA councils and troops follow through with their past threats. And defund and revoke any sponsorship of the BSA. This will send a very clear message to the BSA’s governing body if they must find new places to take the scouts for their monthly meetings and overnight camping trips.

We will see homosexual scout leaders very soon if nothing changes. Maybe even “transgendered” Boy Scouts. Since the Girl Scouts already allow such members themselves. This insanity must stop. The line must be drawn and if crossed, action must be taken.

Tornado Time

In the last 24 hours. The Greater Des Moines IA area has been under a Tornado Warning 2 times. Both sitings have been to the north of the city itself. That is a lot of storms within the span of the day.

Both Sunday and Monday were nice days until the early evening when the thunderstorms started dumping heavy rains on the metro area. Then came the winds and the cyclonic actions of funnel clouds being sighted.

We here in Iowa have been fortunate. Unlike those in OK. Please keep them in your prayers today and the days to come.

IRS Troubles

With all the news about the IRS targeting conservative groups and some conservative individuals coming forward indicating that they too have been targets of audits and other issues with the IRS. Can this now be the time that the IRS is given its death nail?

This is the time to take the momentum forward with the hearts of the people and abolish this immoral taxation policy. To completely remove the IRS from our language, our government, and way of life. To repeal the 16th amendment and end income tax forever. Replacing it with the Fair Tax which is truly fair to all income earners and non-earners alike. Where definitions of rich, poor and middle class are not redefined because the government needs more of your money.

Take the action. Call your representatives in Congress and the Senate and demand the end of the IRS, the appeal of the 16th amendment, and call for the beginning of the Fair Tax. Thus forever ending any political party the ability to misuse the powers granted currently to the IRS under any administration. Republican and Democrat alike. And best of all. Take home all of the money you work so hard to earn.

And we are back!

Yes you did READ that right. We are back up and running. At this time our archives are still in the process of being recovered. But it’s touch and go. We had a hard drive crash on us before a back-up was initiated. This did cause us to loose a lot of data. But that does happen. Lesson number 1 is back-up, back-up and back-up. But even with a back-up, if the data is corrupted there isn’t much you can do about it.

So we can begin anew and if we can recover any previous posts and comments they will return to the site.

Thank you all for waiting!
