11/11/13 Today is Veterans Day -- Please take time to recognize the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who have and are serving our country in uniform standing for the values we hold so near and dear. Remember those and their families who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, marking the fighting that ended World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. Then in June 1954 Congress chose to recognize all veterans and made November 11th Veterans Day. Take this opportunity to explain the importance of Veterans Day to your children and grandchildren.
Even the military is under siege from within today as senior officers are being purged from the military at an alarming rate and religious liberty is being taken away. Take time today to thank the Lord for men and women who are still serving in the military even under all these political pressures.

6/13/12 Governor Walker signed Executive Order # 69 relating to expansion of the Green Tier Program of the Dept of Natural Resources (DNR). Read what the DNR has to say about Green Tier on their web site. This appears to be Gov Walker's approval of AGENDA 21 and his promotion it. This is especially hard to understand when the Republican National Committee (RNC) adopted a strong resolution opposing Agenda 21. Read the RNC resolution and also the strongly worded resolution adopted recently at the Wisconsin Republican State Convention in opposition to Agenda 21. Why would Gov Walker want to promote the United Nations Sustainability program for WI unless he is in full favor of our state being part of the United Nations one world plan? Apparently he is in favor of such for our state! Watch a 21 minute video by the John Birch Society entitled Agenda 21: How Will it Effect You which will give you a brief understanding of Agenda 21.
