The Constitution does not give us rights.

I just wanted to relay something that popped into my head earlier today...
The Constitution does not give us rights.
Keep that in mind in the coming months and years - The Constitution does not give us rights.
The Constitution assures the rights that are endowed to us by our Creator. The Constitution tells us that those rights are "self evident" and given to us by God Himself.
Do you get that? The Constitution states that the rights that we love so much were given to us by Him. 
It states it - it does not initiate it. 
Lets keep it in perspective, as this administration continues to chip away  at personal freedoms. They are freedoms given to us by our Maker.

God Help Us...

Well, they did it.
This century's most corrupt band of liars, cheats and thugs have made the biggest step yet toward making America a Communist Nation.

The words "transparent" and "open" mean nothing to them.
Democracy and Capitolism are swear words to them.
Truth and Justice are a nuisance to them.

Thanks to everybody who refused to believe Obama when he told us he was going to "fundamentally change America."
 Thanks for not reading his voting record while he was still in Illinois.
Thanks a lot for voting for "hope and change." 
Because of your pathetic lack of responsibility and foresight, you have effectively ruined any chance for future generations to know the liberties that we have seen.
If you voted for "O" you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Imagine if George W. Bush were to have conducted himself in the manner in which our illustrious president has. Would the press let him off for such a string of lies? For allowing and encouraging open bribery?
Would they have kissed his feet, and treated him like deity while hounded representatives, gave them rides on Air Force One, and gave their family members life-long positions in the judicial system?
No. They would have raked him over the coals. 
They would have... well, they would have treated him like George W. Bush. 
Welcome to the New Deal, only it isn't a new deal at all - it is an outright Marxist take over. 
This is nothing more than Communism.
The whole thing makes me feel ill.

I have let my readers down. I apologize. Please allow me to give a few excuses reasons for the blatant neglect of Mangdiddles.
OK, I have very little time these days to blog. I hate to be blunt, but dang! We are dealing with some stuff here!
What sort of stuff, you might ask? Allow me to elaborate...

The first on the list is that we are expecting a new baby. Yes, a new baby... and yes, it was on purpose. I'm not getting any younger, and to tell you the truth, I am a sucker for little one's. I love having little kids in the house - they are so sporatic and off-the-wall, that they make me laugh & appreciate being alive. Besides that, we are commanded to "be fruitful and multiply." How can I argue with that? 
...well, actually, I can interpret that a few ways - three kids is fruitful. Four kids is fruitful. Truth is, I don't know how many "fruitful" is, but the thought of having a whole bunch tickles me.
I'll fill you in on a little secret (my wife doesn't read Mangdiddles - go figure): I worry for my kids' future in America. We are letting our boarders down, steeping debt on the unborn ...that we decide not to kill, and destroying the foundational principles that America was founded on. ...But that's another story.
I am being pulled in all directions concerning business. Sometimes I wonder if I am in the right line of work, and if it is even safe to consider getting out of it. I love my job... my job doesn't always love me though. These are not the best times to change careers. Enough said on that. 
My kids are growing up, which adds a whole new dynamic to the equation - working on their vehicles, explaining chemistry & algebra (we home-school). The fact that my oldest is as tall as me, and eats twice as much as I do just... honestly, it makes me sad. I hate it. I would give anything to go back in time, and prioritize my life. I have failed in 'time management.'
I have been doing portraits and such on the side - I love doing it, but it takes a bunch of time.
Time. There's never enough when I am at home, and it never goes fast enough while I'm at work.
I am teaching the book of 1 John at church, which takes a lot of time too.

I promise to try to keep up-to-date on here. Pray for me, as I want to be a person, who in the end people can say, "man, he did it right."
