Agenda 21:The Path to Destruction

Sell Art Online

Written by :Gary Wonning

I remember being about five years old and looking out over the distant cornfields of Indiana and thinking how the early twenty-first century was going to be a tough period of time.

This was in the 1950s and at that point in time and only being a small child, the 21st century seemed  far off and  something that would never happen.

As life went on, the thought occasionally entered my mind but I largely ignored it. Then once again I was reminded of the warning by a psychic I had become acquainted with. She told me of the dangers that were coming and blamed most of the approaching trouble because Americans had fallen way from their beliefs and also how the young were being raised and taught.

I could see trouble with our society, but in reality , I had no idea what was coming or what it all meant.She told me it was going to turn out alright, but I should stay out of the big cities, there was going to be much violence and rioting.After  reminding me  I should never forget where I came from, I never saw her again.

The problems our country and world face didn’t come about over night. Even though with our present administration has taken them to a new level and the car is now in overdrive, the problems began many years ago in the 1960s. The civil unrest and radical movement took on a whole new dimension and several of the radicals of that era are now in high levels of government dictating what course we should all take in our daily lives.

Never before has our government been so dictatorial in its operation, add to that the actions of the UN and we have a recipe for disaster.

The rapid growth of the federal government and their quenching thrust for power has placed all our freedoms in jeopardy. It isn’t just one political party that is guilty,  though obviously the liberals are more at fault than anyone. They are promoting the agenda and the GOP is mindlessly following  their lead. The Pied Piper is leading us all over the cliff.

Regardless of political party, the “Establishment” politicians are all following into lock step behind this agenda. Most no longer believe the American citizen no longer has the right or intelligence to chart their own course in life. This has filtered up to the United Nations and there is a full scale attempt by that organization to run our lives and dictate what we can and can’t do, what we can eat, and control every other aspect of our lives.

I’m sure you have noticed how cozy our last four presidents have become with each other, that is no accident. They were basically all educated in the same universities under the same liberal agenda. They all think the same, and their way of thinking isn’t in our best interest.

Politics has taken on a whole new agenda, just this week and operative of the present administration proudly stated how during the 2008 campaign the democrats were horrified of Sarah Palin because of the speech she gave.  They knew if they didn’t do something her message would resonate with millions , so they sought to destroy her and her family by spreading falsehoods and deceit. It worked, most people believed the lies and even though she has much influence today, the mainstream media is so anti Palin they actually rejoice when members of her family are put into danger.

What happened to equality? It seems like the war on women is coming from the liberal side of the isle.

The the top of this list is AGENDA 21.

you owe it to yourself to listen to this video, it will become the most important twenty minutes of your life. Our freedoms are slipping away, in fact they aren’t slipping away, they are leaving at supersonic speed.

 If you value freedom and our way of life, now is the time to become active, every effort, large or small is important and can change the direction we are headed. The future looks bleak, but it can be changed and it ain’t over till its over.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it.

Australia Q&A

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)

A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)
A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does not… oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every tuesday night in Kings Cross. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its name. It’s a kind of bear and lives in trees. (USA)

The two skunks

Once there was a family of skunks who lived in a hollow tree. There were two baby skunks. Their names were In and Out.

Now whenever In went out, Out came in, and whenever Out went out, In came in. If In happened to be in and wanted to go out, he would not go out until Out came in. And if Out happened to be in, and wanted to go out, he would not go out until In came in.

One day a big storm blew up, and the mother and father skunks were worried about their children. So they quickly looked around to see whether In was in and Out was out or if Out was in and In was out. Out happened to be in right then. The mother skunk said to Out, “Out, go out and bring In in, please. I’m worried about him.”

Out said, “Sure thing, Mama.” So Out went out, and for the very first time Out and In were out at the same time. Just a minute or two later Out came back in, and In came in behind him. For the first time in a long time In and Out were in at the same time.

The mother skunk was amazed. “Out, how did you find your brother so quickly?” she asked.

“Oh, Mama, it was easy,” Out said. “In stinked!”

About Three miles north of Long Lake and twelve miles north of Alpena, Michigan. The site offers a welcome break when traveling to and from the Mackinac Bridge.

Not only one of the oldest light houses in the state of Michigan, it is the tallest one climbable by the public. Open from mid-May until mid-October, it is advertised to be open from eleven AM until 5 PM. The day we were there it closed at three -thirty, hence we didn’t get inside.

Luckily, we were there late in the afternoon and were able to catch  the rays of the sun as it descended in the sky, allowing for some beautiful photos.
