OK, back to normality.

Vidad can Google his own panties henceforth.

Massachusetts...I'm praying for Brown to win, srsly.

The President Tweeted for the first time today. Yay. The smartest man in the world is Social Network savvy. Maybe he'll friend me on Facebook. *sigh*

My head is an unpleasant place to be, now. I see the country I was born in, grew up in, rotting before my eyes. Men and women who have care for naught but there own political careers are mortgaging my children's, and their children's futures, and I feel RAGE. Seething fury. Utterly impotent fury, with no outlet. What can be done in the flesh?

Just saw an article about the new Planned Barrenhood facility being built in a mostly black and Hispanic area of Houston. The pro-lifers are out in force, countered by the lovely and articulate pro-choicers. High school otakettes with signs proclaiming "It's my body, not YOURS!", and shrike-voiced women accusing the pro-lifers of "not wanting women to have access to health care". I mean, I think they REALLY believe that. There are two pluses to the pro-abortion crowd: their aborted progeny are likely enjoying time in heaven, and these intellectual powerhouses are not breeding replacements for their tragically stupid selves.

The Dread Dormomoo and I had four kids. We are neither Catholics nor Mormon, though we did homeschool the lot of them, K-12. We saw the Scripture that
says

Psa 127:3-5 Lo, children are the inheritance of Jehovah; the fruit of the womb is a reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the sons of the young.
Blessed is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.


is a challenge to all seeking to live godly. Our kids are time arrows that we fire into the future to affect it for good. We endured the odd glances and catty remarks by people who should know better - "You do know what causes that...?". I have a friend

(there is a chorus: "YAAAAAAYYYYYY, he has a friend!")

I have a friend who is expecting a fifth child with his sweet wife. They REALLY get the looks and comments, but if believers don't have kids, what hope have we? I mean, the churches aren't evangelizing effectively in the US...in fact, they are effectively vaccinating people against contracting a case of faith in Christ. (I will not substantiate this...figure it out.)

We need kids.

Christian babies = cultural change. Thank you for that.

Now... here's something freaky also worth ranting about (disregard ABC's ridiculous misunderstanding of scriptural citation methods):

I was there too. I decided my new years rez would be to let go of it. I can't change it, just knowing about it gives us leg up 'cause we can be a little prepared. So instead of being so P O'd all the time I'm going to lighten up 'cause it is affecting things it shouldn't.

As for kids. I have 1.5. Don't know how many I'll have but I want one boy at least.

You keep paying your taxes and then I can aford to feed more rugrats.

JY-raff! Good to see you.

The thing with me is that an hour later I'm OK. Short Attention-Span Theater.

You call the .5 "Shorty", yes? (Hope all goes well with the birth of #2!)

My head is going funny again. Get a job, ya hippie! ;^)

You brought up a salient point I'd like to build on:
The abortion clinic in the black and Hispanic neighboorhood, put up by leftist radicals: They don't reproduce, they encourage others not to reproduce - including all the migrants - and the kids they are brain-filthying in the pubic screw-ools are encouraged not to reproduce...
Hmmm...
I don't see a downside here: The Progs may not-breed themselves out in a couple decades!

The Aardvark said...

Ted, per-ZACTLY where I was headed. When Believing husbands and wives decide to stop acting like the World, and be fruitful, well, that too will be for the win.

Mrs. Pilgrim said...

Ah, but Regressives are like Shakers: they don't reproduce, they don't marry, they worship a woman, they are very disruptive when practicing their beliefs, and they get hold of children as young as they possibly can to swell their ranks.

...Funny how these things always follow the same pattern.

The Aardvark said...

Mrs. P, you are ever the fount of fascinating arcanum. The Shakers I have heard of, but have not done much reading about. Must correct this.

Mrs. Pilgrim said...

Thankee. I'm something of a trivia collector. Occasionally, I can even produce something useful out of my dusty accumulation of intellectual knickknacks.

The Aardvark said...

Woweewowowow.

The Shakers are a TRULY weird bunch.

The Second Great Awakening was such a freakshow.

Shakers? Like this?

No, Vidad. Just...no.

The Aardvark said...

Mrs. P, you beat me to it.

You know, growing up as one of those 4 kids wasn't easy. Dunno how much of it the boys felt, but even as a young child, I got tired of paving the way with odd looks and those oh-so-catty remarks, especially from extended family. No one likes it when someone escapes from the cloud of the accepted norm. It's a little like being Christ Himself.

Oh, wait.

I guess this is a weak thank you for showing me firsthand what it meant to be truly Christlike from the get-go. If I can do even a fraction of that for Dorian, the world will be a little brighter for it.

The Aardvark said...

Sto-o-o-o-o-o-p, you're embarrassing me....

Seriously, this may be the single best birthday present I've ever gotten.
