Ben Stein - got this in an e-mail - MUST READ

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year.

It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a crèche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.

I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat. Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too... But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events... Terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why theyDon't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on Your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they Will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... No one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards,

Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

I have to say..

...the shock of going to communism isn't quite so acute today as it was a month ago... maybe it was the new movie "Australia" that did it!! Let me tell you in no incertain terms that there is NO GENDER confusion in THAT movie. It's OBVIOUS who the man is and Nicole Kidman plays quite a lady... I LOVED the movie... and I LOVE Hugh Jackman --as Mr. Drover.... The movie takes place in a time when men were men and women were GLAD!! haha! Truly.. I may never be the same again... He did cause me to remember that I am... well.... still alive... ;)

The thought for the day...

..Since obama (doesn't deserve his name captilized) wants a "strong CIVILIAN military; stronger than our REAL one and just as if not more well funded"... why do you suppose he wants to ban our right to use a gun in self defense?..... and why do you supose he wants a CIVILIAN military in the first place? Why would we need one when we have an AMERICAN one already --one that is consitutional?... is it occurring to anybody else that we're screwed? Can we say Hitler's Youth?
I see a civil war on the horizon.. and I welcome it. It will be needed to defend the constitution.. and preserve our right to pursue happiness... obama wants the fairness doctrine so we have no voice. he wants a filibuster-proof senate so he can re-write the constitution in his first 4 years so we CAN'T vote him out at that time because he will have removed our right to VOTE in the first place. These ARE his goals... I can't believe every American can't see that... but wait! 50% of Americans CAN.. and THAT gives me hope! The polls show obama was elected by ILL informed
people... and that too gives me hope. Maybe hope isn't an AUDACITY after all. Think about THAT!..

Already Living in Communism?? Watch THIS:

This is probably one of the most revealing TRUTHS written today by a freaking BRILLIANT man.. Ben Stein is one of my modern day heroes!! I hope EVERYONE will buy a copy of this documentary for yourselves and one for all your friends! It was fantastically done; and drives home that we are already to a larger degree than I'm comfortable recognizing LIVING UNDER COMMUNISM. We're being lied to.. and Ben Stein gets it. Do you?

He didn't come across a scientist that had ever discovered that spontaneous generation is possible; that it had never been proven. He DID find scientists and professors that were fired from their jobs after teaching Intelligent Design AND Darwinism. They canNOT talk about Intelligent Design in Colleges. What bothers me is: I read a study when I was in college (a long time ago)! about a lab-created "new earth" complete with all the elements present before life was here. In that lab SPONANEOUSLY GENERATED was an amino acid! Even the basic building block of life! Why was that study not revealed in Expelled? Maybe that study has since been destroyed and its founder kept quiet. That's what seems to be happening alot under our very noses. These scientists call Darwinism "an elegant explanation"!! Can you believe it?! They want to be "elegant". They want you in college for alot longer than it takes to learn a skill so you can be "well rounded"... no; so you can spend ALOT of $$$ getting brain-washed. But keep watching "sex in the city" because that'll help us get where we need to be! RRRrrrriigghhht....
Maybe Americans ARE just gullible. "Expelled" is for the NOT gullibles. Intelligence is the Glory of God... but that's inconvenient. Watch the video and see where Darwinism has taken societies in the past. Natural Selection??... Ya.. natural selection helped along by the government..
What I LOVE is how Ben Stein is able to demonstrate what FREEDOM means!

So.. on a lighter note...

..I can't wait to take the week off starting tomorrow!! I work hard so I can play hard!.. I miss my families and my babies.. Sar and Ash accuse me of wanting to come home for their babies --not for THEM anymore.. well... that's only partly true! hahaha!
