We the People…Julie Borowski

Although she is a libertarian, I like most of her videos :) Not convinced after watching the drug legalization video or anti-war video, however I respect her opinions (because this is America and we are aloud to have those).

Julie’s video are stuffed full of information expressing a libertarian viewpoint. Although I am not a libertarian, I do find myself leaning that way. Straight forward and animated, Julie stands firm in beliefs.

Julie Borowski is a Policy Analyst at FreedomWorks, an organization dedicated to lower taxes, less government, and more freedom. Her writings on economic policy have appeared in numerous newspapers and online outlets.

I love my Bible study lessons. When I read verses like this…

Isaiah 45
It is easy to remember the authority of God, that all things are possible and nothing is too big for Him to handle! Believe it or not God doesn’t think a government shutdown is a big deal. He may be the only One that can truly comprehend the size of our debt!

Show Me the Way…

Another inspiring song…

Praying God shows his will, so we will know the way.

Chorus: If there's a road I should walk

Help me Find it

If I need to be still

Give me peace for the moment

Whatever your will

Whatever your will

Can you help me find it

Can you help me find it

The Sweat Pledge…

Great new program from Mike Rowe for high school seniors! This is what America needs for restoration!

Mike Rowe  work program

Quote from, Mike Rowe’s S.W.E.A.T. pledge.

The S.W.E.A.T pledge…Skill and Work Ethic are not Taboo. Loving this pledge!

 Here’s the pledge via Rowe’s website, profoundlydisconnected.com:

1. I believe that I have won the greatest lottery of all time. I am alive. I walk the Earth. I live in America. Above all things, I am grateful.

2. I believe that I am entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Nothing more. I also understand that “happiness” and the “pursuit of happiness” are not the same thing.

3. I believe there is no such thing as a “bad job.” I believe that all jobs are opportunities, and it’s up to me to make the best of them.

4. I do not “follow my passion.” I bring it with me. I believe that any job can be done with passion and enthusiasm.

5. I deplore debt, and do all I can to avoid it. I would rather live in a tent and eat beans than borrow money to pay for a lifestyle I can’t afford.

6. I believe that my safety is my responsibility. I understand that being in “compliance” does not necessarily mean I’m out of danger.

7. I believe the best way to distinguish myself at work is to show up early, stay late, and cheerfully volunteer for every crappy task there is.

8. I believe the most annoying sounds in the world are whining and complaining. I will never make them. If I am unhappy in my work, I will either find a new job, or find a way to be happy.

9. I believe that my education is my responsibility, and absolutely critical to my success. I am resolved to learn as much as I can from whatever source is available to me. I will never stop learning, and understand that library cards are free.

10. I believe that I am a product of my choices – not my circumstances. I will never blame anyone for my shortcomings or the challenges I face. And I will never accept the credit for something I didn’t do.

11. I understand the world is not fair, and I’m OK with that. I do not resent the success of others.

12. I believe that all people are created equal. I also believe that all people make choices. Some choose to be lazy. Some choose to sleep in. I choose to work my butt off.

On my honor, I hereby affirm the above statements to be an accurate summation of my personal worldview. I promise to live by them.

Now, we understand many of you might want to sign the pledge just on principle alone — but remember, you have to be a high school senior to be eligible for the scholarship program.

Here he is talking about the program on The Blaze.

Hard Work…

In a previous post I mentioned I was reading Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington. Again I am compelled to share the admiration I have in this man’s strength and character. Booker helped start Tuskegee School from the ground up, in the south. The school had constant struggles with lack of resources and no money. Despite these huge constraints Booker taught the students industrial skills alongside of their book studies. When faced with a problem, no brickyard in town, Booker decided to build a brickyard and teach students to make bricks. When the students at the school needed a dining room and kitchen, Booker handed students shovels to dig a basement room to function as a kitchen and dining room. All but four buildings on the school property were built by students. Not only did they learn to appreciate the work of their handiwork, but they urged other students to take care of the building by not marking them up with pencil marks and knife carvings.

Hard work brings appreciation and pride. Struggles prolonged by failures, can strengthen character, if through determination the struggles are overcome. By taking away people’s struggles, we can do them a disservice, we can hamper the growth of their character. My family was not well off. We received presents at Christmas, but I tried to never ask for presents growing up, because I knew my parents could not afford them. I remember hushing my younger sister, when she would point at something she wanted in the store. I wanted a skip-it as a girl so bad, I knew that since it was summer I wouldn’t get one, so I made my own with a plant pot and a rope. We all have stories within our lives that we struggled with, but we overcome them and if we let them, our struggles make us stronger and we can appreciate what we have earned and learned through hard work.

Ecclesiastes 9:10

Booker knew that struggles should not be discounted. Looking back at the school, years later he states, “As I look back now over that part of our struggle, I am glad that we had it. I am glad that we endured all those discomforts and inconveniences. I am glad that our students had to dig out the place for their kitchen and dining room. I am glad that our first boarding-place was in that dismal, ill-lighted, and damp basement. Had we started in a fine, attractive, convenient room, I fear we would have “lost our heads” and become “stuck up.” It means a great deal, I think, to start off on a foundation which one has made for one’s self.” “When our old students return to Tuskegee now, as they often do, and go into our large, beautiful, well-ventilated, and well-lighted dining room, and see tempting, well-cooked food-largely grown by the students themselves- and see tables, neat tablecloths and napkins, and vases of flowers upon the tables, and hear singing birds, and note that each meal is served exactly upon the minute, with no disorder, and with almost no complaint coming from the hundreds that now fill our dining room, they too, often say to me that they are glad that we started as we did, and built ourselves up year by year, by a slow and natural process of growth” Thank you Booker T. Washington for being a humble honest man, willing to do what most would say was impossible!
