The Blogging College Student

Hello everyone!

I am here at the ECU campus Writing Center this morning and thought I would hop on and update. We got all the "I"'s dotted and "T"'s crossed on the Mustang yesterday so it's now road legal! I just finished working on my Comp I essay. I am looking forward to Biology class later today. Our teacher is really cool. Exams are coming up. I am needing to get ready. Dad and I rode into town together today and that was good.

Well, that's all for now!

Talk to you all later!

I GOT MY CAR!!!!!!

Here it is, folks. I have at long last, found my car. It's a 2000 Mustang, V6, automatic in really nice shape. We had been looking all over the country side for just the right one, and then we found it just 4 miles from our house! It was a girl's car and has not been hot-rodded. It has a charcoal interior which I like better than the tan standard option. It's just really cool and I am so happy to have found my car!

Praise the Lord!

College Work Study

Hey Guys!

So much has happened since my last post, I don't know where to start. I should probably start by saying I have started college at ECU and I am really enjoying it! It has been really fun thus far. I was honorably discharged from the grocery store and was blessed to be hired by the ECU history department. Change can happen so fast.

Outside the history office we have a board that you can post liberal or conservative views on current day issues. I am considering posting some of my writings from Virtue Magazine and/or Regenerate Our Culture. It looks like the conservatives could use so boosting.

Well, that's all for now!

A Camping We Will Go...

Hello everyone,

Dad and I are about to head out on a Eagle Scout reunion trip down into the longhorn stomping grounds of Texas. We are going to the Glenn Rose Dinosaur National Park for the weekend. Our old Scoutmaster, Larry Parks, will be flying in to be with us. I am greatly looking forward to visiting with him and the other members of our troop.

Here is a video I just have to share with you guys. It is a video version of the famous Mark Schultz song, "Letters From War". It's a great song with a great message of courage, hope, and dedication on both the home front and out in the wars of this world. This is what family is all about, the strength that comes from a father, mother, sons and daughters, who are overcoming with the power given to them by God. Enjoy.

Blessing upon you all.

Happy Fourth of July!

Hello everyone!

I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. Life has been a mix of work, car shopping, and more work. But the birthday of our nation is a good time to update. :-)

I go in to the store today, but instead of working 4-9 like I normally do, Mr. Andrews(My Employer) has switched our hours so we can be home in the evening! So today I work 1-6! We are breaking out our Bush/Cheney '04 cups to use while we devour our frito chili pie over fireworks this evening. :-)

You might be interested in my latest literary creation hosted kindly by Regenerate Our Culture's Fourth of July Issue, a thesis on King George and his relations with the American colonials.

Another lovely tradition of ours is to listen to the official song for the 2004 National Day of Prayer, "Let Freedom Ring" by Dennis Jernigan. This year on the website you can watch the accompaniment video online! Please check it out. Both the song and video are awesome! :-D

Have a great Fourth everyone!

Blessings upon you all,

Travis Turns 19!

Good grief! Where did 18 go? That's right folks, today the Boy Scout Blogger turns the big 1-9.

With the teen years fading fast, I feel I should be reflecting on where I have been. But life seems to be rushing right along with little regard to my ruminating needs. My high school graduation is planned for this Sunday and I have much I need to do for that. Also, our homeschool groups end of the year party is tonight and I am getting ready for that. (Did I forget to mention that I work all day tomorrow at the grocery store? :-P)

Yes, life is busy, but God is good and he will lead me rightly.

U.S. Senate To Vote On Homosexual Marriage June 6

News update from the AFA.

The most important vote in the Senate this year! The future of our children is at stake.

Dear Travis,

On June 6, the U.S. Senate will vote on the constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Time is short! It is critical that you contact your senators and ask them to vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA). Once homosexual marriage is legal, our religious liberties will be stripped away. Even pro-homosexual marriage advocates agree with that statement.

To understand how this will happen, please take time read Dr. Maggie Gallagher's very detailed and accurate article by clicking here.

Print it out and give a copy to your pastor! We expect Democratic senators to vote to kill the MPA. The public is not aware that the Democratic National Committee has given thousands of dollars to homosexual groups to help promote homosexual marriage. The groups supporting homosexual marriage have activist judges waiting to make homosexual marriage legal. It is expected that the Washington state Supreme Court will rule homosexual marriage legal as soon as the elections are over. Some feel the ruling has already been made, but they will not release it until after the November elections. They don't want to hurt the pro-homosexual liberal nominees in the elections. Only a constitutional amendment will stop homosexual marriage from becoming the law of the land.

Take Action!

It is extremely important that you email your senators today, and get as many others as possible to do the same. Please, please forward this to your family and friends!
Click here to send an email to your two senators.

If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift? Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

Travis has been kidnapped.

Several days ago, our friend Travis was working at his computer when a golden beast attacked him and forced him off the internet. Travis fought back with great vigor and vein with all the tools he could bring to bear, but to no avail. With one last great effort, he formatted his harddrive and escaped the cluches of the hardware error. He then begin searching for his friends, his blog, his AIM, all the companates of the computer that he managed to save...or had lost altogether. Finally, he restores enough to again look upon his good friend "blog".

That's right folks. After a computer bug that kept me off the internet for over a week, I am finally back and kicking here at the Boy Scout Blogger. Here are some updates.

I enrolled over at ECU for the fall term and am looking forward to starting college. It should be a real learning experience in more ways then one. The current majors I am looking at are Legal Studies, Political Science or History. I am currently leaning toward Legal Studies.

I have been working down at the store and working on mastering my duties.

And speaking of work, that time is growing near, so I had better bid you good bye with the joyful knowledge that the Boy Scout Blogger is back online!

Talk to you later!

Should we replace the birth of Christ as the dividing line of history?

A good question, asked today by the American Family association...

AFA Poll

Should we replace the birth of Christ to date time (BC/AD) with a secular dating method (BCE/CE)?
Read the information below and then vote!

Dear Travis
The Kentucky Board of Education has voted to take the first step in redefining how America dates time. The board voted to include a new secular system of dating the calendar, BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era), and added it to the BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini, Latin for "in the year of our Lord") method.

The new secular system of time dating will appear in the curriculum and other materials used by Kentucky educators. This new system is already being included in textbooks across the nation.

The new method will replace the birth of Christ as the dividing point in history. For example, the new system would change 2006 AD (Anno Domini) to 2006 CE (Common Era).

It also opens the door for the ACLU to find a liberal activist judge who will forcefully remove the use of BC and AD. The ACLU types will claim that the use of BC and AD are a violation of the First Amendment because it dates history based on the birth of Christ.

Take Action

Results of the poll will be shared with members of Congress.

Should Congress pass a law making BC/AD the official method of dating time?

Cast your vote. Give us your opinion!

Signal Flags and Warning Signs

This ironic picture of a "protest" by Hispanic High School students, shows all too clearly the flaws of our policy regarding our Southern border and immigration. Michelle Malkin covers the story.

When I first saw this picture, I thought, "What?...weird." because it gives off a very clear meaning to someone who knows about flag protocol.

First of all, the Mexican Flag on top would seem to indicate that the picture was taken in the country of Mexico, because the flag of one's homeland is always flown above all other countries flags in one's homeland. However, this picture was taken at Pioneer, California at aforementioned Hispanic protest which send the signal that said students wish for Mexico to reconquer California. Interesting object for those who support illegal immigration INTO the United States FROM Mexico to support...

Then we look at the American flag on the lower part of the pole. Here is the rule for flying a flag upside down.

" The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property".

So it would appear that these students are attempting to say, "Up with Mexico! Down with the US!" are in fact saying, "We are taking over this land!" while the US flag is calling our nations attention to the danger of illegal immigration.

One of Miss Malkins readers sent her a Teddy Roosevelt quote which goes very well with this topic.

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American..."

"...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

We have to get our borders locked down and fast. If this picture is any reflection of the loyalty and support that these people will give our nation, I suggest they return to the country who's flag they are defiantly waving.

I have no grudge against their color or race, but I would denounce any and all who promote their nation at the expense of the United States whether they be white, black, brown or purple for that matter. I know not the offence for attempting to disgrace the Mexican flag in Mexico, but I would guess that such an offender would be mobbed at the very least.

If someone Mexican or any other nationality wishes to come into the good ol' USA because they desire to raise their families, own their own home, work hard, or worship God free of government oppression, I say to them "Welcome Aboard! and I would be proud to shake their hand as a fellow countryman. But if you come over here with the intent to support "the old country" at the expense of the new, I say to you, "Return from whence you came." Being a citizen of the United States means a little more then flouting authority at your school and singing the praises of another country. I have included below the Oath all immigrants must take after legally immigrating and when they are applying for citizenship.

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God. In acknowledgement whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.

Anyone who is not willing to take such an oath or the equivalent according to the dictates of their faith, of any color or race, or anyone who is not willing to abide by the terms of the same, should not be allowed citizenship. It is as simple as that.

Camp and Scholarships

Hello all,

It has alas, been another week since I have blogged. It seems that the older I get the less time I have for some parts of life I have enjoyed in times past. (Reading, for example) However, I do have some good news to share with you.

First of all, I would like to FINALLY tell you guys about what happened at church camp. We spent a lot of time in the Word over the weekend and there where many who where drawing near to the Lord. When the time came of Saturday night for praise and worship, many hearts where softened and crying out to the Lord. There were people on their knees and people repenting of their sins and worshiping the Lord. It was really a blessed time. It was really good to be in the fellowship of Christian brothers and sister who are truly seeking the Lord and desiring to follow Him. I praise the Lord for His goodness.

Second of all, yesterday we got a letter from East Central University. I was at work when it came and had come to my grandma's house to work on her computer when mom called me. The letter said that ECU had examined my ACT scores and is willing to grant me a scholarship for 500 dollars a semester! That with another scholarship will pay for my college education! Blessed be the name of the Lord! I am very humbled and blessed by the Lord's grace and mercy on my life. He is very good.

That's all for now. Talk to you later.

The Greatest Want of the World

Hello everyone,

Man this week flew by. I just realized I have not blogged since Tuesday and I thought I had better update. :-) I still need to get a post out on the great things that happened at camp, but please allow me to share this with you. This ends an audio story we have and this time I took it down. It is well worth any young man's time to read. This is our goal.

The greatest want in the world is the want of men.
Men who will not be bought or sold
Men who in their inmost souls are true and honest.
Men who do not fear to call sin by its right name.
Men who's conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole.
Men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.

May we be those men.

Help Save The Life Of An Afghan Man Who Refuses To Deny Christ

Here is a email from the AFA. Please have a look. Yes, I am back. and I hope to fill you guys in on some of the great things that the Lord did at camp. Talk to you later!
The BSB,
- Travis

Dear Travis,

Abdul Rahman, 41, faces death because he converted from Islam to Christianity and refuses to convert back to Islam. His family accused him of being a Christian. During his trial last Thursday in Kabul, Rahman confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago while working as a medical aid worker for an international Christian group helping Afghan refugees in the Pakistani city of Peshawar. Read the WorldNetDaily article here -

"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law. It is an attack on Islam," Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada said. The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said he offered to drop the charges if Mr. Rahman converted back to Islam, but Rahman refused. "He would have been forgiven if he changed back. But he said he was a Christian and would always remain one. We are Muslims, and becoming a Christian is against our laws. He must get the death penalty," Wasi said. TAKE ACTION Please email President Bush and ask him to intervene to save the life of Abdul Rahman. Help get others involved in saving the life of this Christian who refuses to deny Christ. Please forward this to friends and family and ask them to send the emails.

Click Here to Email President Bush Now!Also, please pray that God will intervene to save his life. If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift by clicking here. Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

Youth Camp 2006

Hello everyone,

Today, my sister and I are getting ready for our church's annual Youth Camp. In years past it has provided a very welcome time of well supervised encouragement and fellowship to our youth. I truly feel that there are few places on this earth that are as uplifting and encouraging as this camp alongside the youth from our church. We play soccer, basketball, volleyball and board-games in the beautiful rolling hills and mountains of Western Oklahoma. This will be my last year due to my graduation this year, so this particular trip has special meaning to me.

I would like to remind my blog readers to not loose heart as the days march on and evil seems so strong. Be reminded that there is a mighty God who looks after those who take up their cross and follow Him. Lord willing, I will be back at the blogging controls Sunday night or Monday.

If you are hard up for reading material with out your daily dose of the BBS, you might have a look at what I was doing one year ago at this time. I went paging at the State Senate, got interviewed TWICE and was trying my best to support Terri Schivo. :-( But all in all, a cool time to look back on. So if your interested about what was going in WAY BACK THEN in March 2005, have a look.

Blessings to everyone,

Links and Thoughts

Was Jesus Political? - A very interesting article answering that very provoking question.

Regenerate Our Culture - Yes, it is coming today, but there have been some technical problems which have delayed it slightly. It should be up and running soon.

Square Talk Radio should be returning to all its fans very soon as the Regenerate Our Culture podcast. :-) Be looking for some good shows soon.

I have been convicted lately that I really need to draw closer to the Lord on a day-to-day basis. At this time last year, I was the the good habit of reading my Bible both day and night as I lied down and as I rose up. I need to get back to that. This old world can only be changed for the better by people who are rooted and grounded in the Word. I have recently been encouraged by the new Song of the Month over at Please give it a download. It is called Greatest God.

High stakes -A News Wrap-Up

High stakes - the is a very in-depth article about the current state of the abortion ban in South Dakota. Have a read. It included the idea that we as pro-lifers may have jumped the gun by directly attacking abortion before we suffitiontly changed the Supreme Court. This is an interesting question. Please continue to support this bill through prayer and any other means the Lord places on your heart to use. (donations to pro-life organisation, etc)

'Winston Churchill' in a straitjacket?

I see the point these people are trying to make, but its a really tacky way to make that point.

Hey guys!

Today is my work day, but I just wanted to show you my new blog picture! I posted it here to give you a closer look. What do you think?

Thoughts of Men, Morals, and History

After hearing the audio of that teacher from Colorado ranting about the perversity of our country, I took to thinking. One of his major points is, why do we have a right to retain and design weapons of mass destruction, while discouraging other nations from doing so?

The answer to that, to me is simple. We are the good guys, they are the bad guys and we don't want them to be able to hurt us, or take away our freedom. To place all nations on the same moral footing, as that teacher does, is to make history into mindless garbled mush. If you teach history without clearly showing who was in the right and way, history just becomes a bunch of boring mindless information about a bunch of dead people did to no end, good or evil. What in the world would make people want to turn history into that? Their own diabolical ends no doubt.

History is the true story of Good vs Evil, Right vs. Wrong, and Christ over Sin. History after all is, HIS-story. To present history in such a way as to remove right and wrong from it, is to promote lethargy, and laxity among the next generation. If a generation is raise according to the principles that teacher was instructing those students in, we will suddenly have a large group of people who no longer care what is right and what is wrong. Slowly, surly, with that kind of teaching, our nation will not longer view our nations hero's of Normandy and Iwo Jima as good men fighting the oppression of evil, but as another line of monkeys seeking their own dominance. With this lie our schools are turning children away from wisdom.

Prov 1:7 ¶ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools
despise wisdom and instruction.

Then it goes on to say what the fear of the Lord is.

Prov 8:13 "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.

So what these teachers are doing is teaching children to accept evil as a natural thing people have the "right" to do. That could not be more false! Pfft. Good grief there is a lot of stuff that needs fixed in this old world. But I am encouraged because the Word goes on to say:

"When the Adversary shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall
lift up a standard against him." Isaiah 59:19

Blessed be the Name of the Lord. My fellow Christians, we are called to be a part of this host. We are to proclaim the truth throughout the land. Let us be about our task.

Taking a Stand - Delegate Don Dwyer

Gay marriage opponent calls for impeachment of Maryland judge

Same story from the Family Policy Council

And last but not least, I found this this article which seems to be the most in-depth of the three. (Video included) This one goes on to say that the judge in question, a Ms. Brooke Murdock, overturned a 33 year old law "against same-sex marriage". What gives her the right to do that I ask? Why does she have the right to overthrow a clearly constitutional statute? A statute that is and was clearly supported by the writers of our constitution as we saw in my post yesterday. This is a clear overstepping of judicial power. Thomas Jefferson warned us that:

"[T]o consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional
questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us
under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such
single tribunal.
The Constitution . . . [would be] a mere thing of wax in the hands of the
judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please."(link)

That is where the problem lies. When a judge is able to invent from thin air the right for sodomy, he or she clearly has overstepping the bounds of the constitution and the bounds of all that is righteous and holy. Let us look at the thoughts of John David Michaelis, the author of an 1814 four-volume legal work. (Text provided by David Barton here)

"Whoever, therefore, wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice (Sodomy)
introduced; for it is extremely difficult to extirpate it where it has once
taken root because it can be propagated with much more secrecy . . . and when we
perceive that it has once got a footing in any country, however powerful and
flourishing, we may venture as politicians to predict that the foundation of its
future decline is laid and that after some hundred years it will no longer be
the same . . . powerful country it is at present."

Let us look at an example of a court out of control.
If a judge had been allowed by the legislature to overturn laws that the people make without any check, slavery would not have been abolished. (see this article about half way down the page)

This is the reason that legislators like Delegate Dwyer MUST take action to stop these judges from overturning laws that are both constitutional and moral. To allow otherwise is to turn our country into a dictatorship of nine persons in black.

(Agent Tim recently heard this man speak. That must have been very cool and to top it off, it gave me a great post idea. )

Most Americans believe abortion wrong

Darwin smacked in new U.S. poll -
Whopping 69 percent of Americans want alternate theories in classroom

This is a good example of the American people allowing a bunch of liberal kooks to lead our nation down a path that is wrong. "We the people" need to take up the reins of government and fix these problems.

Gangsters under instructions to shoot "to scare" border agents - Bullets can fly both ways, buddy. This guy must be a nut. What thug in his right mind would tell his minions to "shoot to scare" a 6' 4" 250 pound Texas Border patrolmen armed with a 9mm or a 30-06? Not a good idea. Sounds like a suicide pact to me.

G.O.P. Leaders Vowing to Block Ports Agreement

DeLay wins Texas GOP nomination

These two items of media attention I am still studying and have not yet reached a firm stance on yet. SecDef has some interesting thoughts on the port issue you might want to check out.

Video of Teacher who compared Bush to Hitler - The wacko gives his 2 cents. Claims he was fulfilling his role as "the devils advocate". I tend to agree.

Iran Threatens U.S. With 'Harm and Pain There you go again. Bad idea. What did I tell you about messing with Texans? Especially the ones protecting our nation?

Democrat for Senate: Death penalty for practicing 'gays' - Interestingly enough, this is the position of our founding fathers. Have a look at this article which includes quotes like this which where law at the time.

"That the detestable and abominable vice of buggery [sodomy] . . . shall be from henceforth adjudged felony . . . and that every person being thereof convicted by verdict, confession, or outlawry [unlawful flight to avoid prosecution], shall be hanged by the neck until he or she shall be dead."

South Dakota Abortion Ban passed!

Read more here and here. We have to go to town on a college campus tour now, but more analysis will come later.

Talk to you then!

I am so glad this bill was signed into law yesterday. This is a clear cut case of the people of South Dakota taking the law back from a bunch of liberal justices and saying with their votes, "We will not allow the wholesale murder of children to continue, the buck stops here".
Boy howdy, do we ever need more states to pass laws like this.

My guess is that the liberals are going to play their same old hand, "woman's "right" to privacy, woman's right to choose, etc, etc. I have a question for those who support these views, what about the babies rights, hmm? I believe our government should protect its citizens, not kill them. As I have said before, the only mindset that allows for a mother to kill her child is a mindset of humanism, a mindset that places the mother in the position of God, a mindset, by the way, which goes along nicely with evolution's "natural selection". These mindsets take into no account such has beens as right and wrong. Doesn't jump out at me as the type of philosophy I want my country to use as its basis for law. Let's throw it out and get another. One who believes that life begins at conception and innocents should be protected if at all possible.

Scouting the News

Good morning everyone!

Well, today is my big work day, so I don't have a lot of time this morning, but here goes.

I thought this was kinda interesting, the winners of 'Christian Oscars' where announced. Both "Sue Thomas F.B. Eye" and "The Chronicles of Narnia" made the cut. Great shows, the both of them.

And in this very interesting article from WORLD magazine, writer Lynn Vincent talks about the Democratic party's new Born again? style message.

I talked about the change in the liberals rhetoric in this post, during the President's State of the Union Address. The libby's are just out for your votes, ladies and gentleman, and their core party platform has not changed. They STILL support abortion, as a national party. They STILL support the Welfare state and they STILL support gay marriage! Any Democrat you find who is pro-life and pro-Christian marriage, is the exception in his party and by his vote for members of that party still supports a party which supports and upholds these abominable acts.

In other news, Agent Tim has caught a dreadful case of March Madness. (I wish we all where struck by such good luck.) He visited PHC and got to visit in person with Scott Somerville. Lucky Dog. :-D Go Tim!

Well, that's it for today! See you later everybody!

Gone to Grandma's...then Today's Headlines

I'll be back later! Talk to you then!

Edit: Well, I am back. :-) As Alex talked about today, there was a young man who recorded a liberal geography teacher ranting about the similarities between Bush and Hitler while in class. (Just wondering...What does political theory have to do with geography anyway?) But that was a big issue today and will continue to be one to watch.

Also, the Senate Approved the Patriot Act Renewal.

Another story which didn't seem to get as much attention was this story intitled "Bush differs with South Dakota abortion bill". It is a bit late for me to write a full comment, perhaps more on that later.

One thing though, is it right to kill a child because something wrong and evil happened to the mother?

James Robison's mother didn't think so.

Just some food for thought.
Goodnight all.

Abortion Ban, Humanism, and the Scripture

YIPPEE! LOOK AT THIS! Sign your name and support this with everything you've got!! This bill goes so far as to make abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

(Before I get totally lost in my rant, I would like to send you to the newest organization who is stepping up to the plate in the fight for our country, Regenerate Our Culture. This is the brainchild of the likes of Agent Tim, Spunky Jr., Mission3:6teen and SmartHomeschool. This new nucleus will be the new home of Square Talk and will house a magazine as well as a lot of other cool stuff. So, after you read my post and sign the petition supporting the abortion ban, head over there and check it out!)

Help us get 1,000,000 Names on the Petition to Governor Rounds!

Dear Travis,

A bill that would ban nearly all abortions in South Dakota and spark a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision is heading to Governor Mike Rounds for his signature. Planned Parenthood, which operates the only clinic performing
abortions in South Dakota, has pledged to challenge the measure in court if Gov.
Rounds signs it into law.

Gov. Rounds' signature would mark the first time since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide that a state legislature has passed such a sweeping ban. The bill, known as H.B. 1215, makes abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

The bill was sponsored in the House by Rep. Roger Hunt, a Republican, and in the Senate by Sen. Julie Bartling, a Democrat. The bill states that "life begins at the
time of conception ..." and that "under the Constitution of South Dakota, a
pregnant mother and her unborn child ...each possess a natural and inalienable
right to life."

The legislators went through the proper legislative channels to pass the law, and did not depend on an activist judge to make law like the pro-abortion supporters do.

Urgent Action Needed!It is important that Gov. Rounds hears from pro-life Christians all across America. Please read and sign the urgent petition to South Dakota Governor Rounds. The petition includes a 'thank you' to the South Dakota House and Senate sponsors of the pro-life legislation.

Please forward this important alert to family and friends. More than 47 million abortions have been performed in the 33 years since the Roe v. Wade decision and this could signal new hope for the unborn child.

Guys, this is the chance of a lifetime.
How better to draw the line in the sand between right and wrong, the rule of law vs. the rule or judicial activist judges, and the rule of life over death? The people of South Dakota have thrown down the gantlet and have said with this action "We will not allow children to be slaughtered within our state". The line of right and wrong can clearly be seen, this is progress. The greatest threat to our nation at this time in our history is humanism, that is, "placing man in the place of God". The allowance of abortion is the clear branch of this evil root of thinking. How else can a mother justify murdering her innocent child then to place herself in the place of God and say "I will chose whether you will live or die". If we desire to bring our nation back to it One and Only, Great and Strong Foundation, we must defeat the vileness of humanism. It has been revealed to me just recently, that of all the battles Christians face in the modern political spectrum, the evil we are fighting at all fronts is humanism. This is the evil that says man was not created, this is the evil that says the founding fathers opinions no longer matter in constitutional questions, this is the evil that seduces voters to stay home from the polls and refuse to fight evil.

These are the man Paul spoke of in his second letter to Timothy when he said:

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant,
revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable,
malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous,
reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a
form of godliness, although they have denied its power
; Avoid such men as
For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women
weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never
able to come to the knowledge of the truth
. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed
Moses, so these {men} also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in
regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their
folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes's and Jambres's folly was

2 Timothy 3: 1-9

Can words describe any better the depravity our nation is slowly sinking deeper and deeper into? But be encouraged, for Paul continues...

2 Tim 3:10 ¶ Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith,
patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, {and} sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium {and} at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of
them all the Lord rescued me!

Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed {from bad} to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned {them,} and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

I solemnly charge {you} in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season {and} out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but {wanting} to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves
teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

¶ For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the
time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

2 Timothy 3:10-4:8

Now, we know the course set before us. We are to fulfill our God given role as the salt and light of the earth, by "Knowing the sacred writings" from the time we are a child, being ready in and out of season to teach, correct, reprove, and exhort the Truth. We are to be ready to receivpersecutionon and triblulation, for Christ is forever faithful and will not allow us into a trail that cannot be overcome through him.

Ahh, what glorious Scripture! Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Down with Evil! Up with Good!

Hello everyone,

My time is a bit limited this morning but I wanted to address this article I found at Yahoo. Apparently Feb 9th is/was Darwin's birthday, and many macroevolutionests came out and had a big party. That poor sad little man. This theory of his has done more then almost any other teaching of our time to corrode Christianity, morality, and basis of right and wrong. As Sam Ashwood recently said in his great article "The Moral Base of Monkeys":

"I often wonder, Why do the college textbooks I study, that promote evolution,
and scorn any idea of Biblical creation, also condemn Hitler, Stalin, or any
other monstrous tyrants? Those dictators were simply acting out Darwin's
doctrine. How can any evolutionist/atheist say that racism is wrong?(I do not
include in my argument here those who believe in deistic evolution; though I do
strongly believe that they err, not knowing the Scriptures or the power of God,
and in all likelihood are unbelievers).
Is it not logical that some humanoid
apes are more highly evolved than others? Then why should not one group, if it
can accumulate the power, lord it over another group? Why can they not slaughter
them, if they think that other group stands in their path to power? After all,
it is only survival of the fittest. If they don't kill them now, that other
tribe of apes may some day gain enough power to kill them. So, we should issue
an apology to all the dictators who have received our calumny in time past. They
were only fulfilling the will of the Monkey-god."

As this article points out, if a person truly believe in "natural selection", what problem can he have with one group of people taking over, killing, enslaving, another people? A macroevolutionests/liberal response will likely respond that no one should be able to take away the rights of another human. Then you respond, who gives these people their rights? The government? That cannot be! Because in Hitler's day killing Jews was a government endorsed thing to do. No it cannot be the government that gives people rights... They will him and haw for a bit, and then you will say, let me tell you what our founding fathers said about that. He will look at you and wince a bit, then you quote the Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among
these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

There. That is who gives all humans rights. Not a government made with human hands, but the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. And this plague called macroevolution is working daily in the schoolrooms and universities of our land to undermine the Christianity and moral fiber upon which our nation's foundation rests. Why did Northern soldiers march into battle during the Civil War with the words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic ringing from their lips?

"As He(Christ) died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is
Marching on!"

I'll tell you why! Because they where obeying and believe the verse in John 15 which says:
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.These man where Christians! Our founders where overwhelmingly Christian! And yet, schoolchildren in our school are told none of this. They are made to believe that our founders where deists, atheists and other such. This is simply false. In the words of Teddy Roosevelt:

"Almost every man who has by his life-work added to the sum of human achievement
of which the race is proud, of which our people are proud, almost every such man
has based his life-work largely upon the teachings of the Bible."(1)

This is where the battlelines are drawn. Either we are going to study history as it truly is, or we are doomed to repeat the errors of those who have gone before. The greatest danger to our country lies in the camp of evolution and humanism, the two camps of forever one. If a person believe one he believe the other. Let us define humanism.

"Humanism is the belief that the human being is the supreme being. Humans are
capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct, etc, without recourse to the

Humanism set man up as God, by placing him in judgment throne above God. It is the ultimate form of rebellion. This is what happens when we tell schoolchildren they can't look at the Ten Commandments in school because it might make them think about obeying them. People turn themselves as a deity. In this land of ours, our founders created our form of government in such a way that to corrupt it, one has to corrupt the entire people, because our government rest in the people. The goal of evil is to overthrow all that is good, all that is right, and all that is Christian about our people, and to twist that into such a form of self promotion that our virtue will vanish like a mist at noonday. America has a long track record of fighting evil, and the author of evil knows this. Therefore he has chosen to attack us at our most vital point, our hearts, minds, and souls. If the evil one can corrupt us in this most vital area, we will fall at the first sign of trouble. I must get ready for work, but I leave you with the cry of Elijah to the nation of Israel:

"How long {will} you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal(evil, humanism), follow him."

America! May we ever follow Christ, the One and Only, True God.

Computer Repair

Hello everyone!

The last few days have been a whirl of activity. With school in the mornings and work in the evenings life is pretty busy. Yesterday, while I was checking at the grocery store, a man came in and asked my manager if she knew of anyone locally who worked on computers. My ears perked up, and I asked what the problem was. He responded that his computer was running slow and seemed to have a virus. After we talked a bit, I took his name and number and talked to mom about working on it. So this morning, I gave him a call and be brought his computer in. It is an AWESOME SYSTEM! With a 64 bit processor! Oops, sorry about the geek speak. :-) But this computer, in good running condition is what all my buddies and I drool over at the store and online, this one just happens to have a bit of a head cold.

I looked it over, looked in my A+ book (Computer repair guide) and after some work got it into working shape. It still has a lot of fine tuning to do, but it is out of the woods for now. This has brought me back to thinking about opening my own computer maintenance business. I could make much better money then I am currently at the store and I would get to work from home.

Something to think about anyway. :-)

Thanks for listening to me think out loud. :-D

Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies

Hello everyone!

Today, my family watched the opening night of the Olympics. We enjoyed watching the US team stepping onto the field in the Parade of Nations and hearing about who is considered a front-runner this year. However, just as they were beginning to end the ceremonies, I was stunned by a song that the Olympic Commission had apparently chosen to be sung. It was called " Imagine" by John Lennon. It asked you to "imagine a world, without a heaven(or a hell)" It asked you to imagine a world without religion and nothing to die for. The whole of the vile lyrics can be found here. And what shocked me most was, not only were people not booing the singer off the stage, they were clapping and even joining in!!! Our very athletes from the good 'ol USA were singing along with this heinous melody!

Oh America, from what heights you have fallen! When you stoop to calling for the falling of your nation and the rejection of your God! This world you claim to wish for is a doped up "peace man" kind of world which will never come about! In a world without government, in a world without law, morals or right and wrong, it would only be a matter of time before some ambitious evil minded person took the opportunity to enslave us all. That is just one of the many problems with this song and its philosophy.

And I am not the only one who feels this way! A quick run through Technorati will show you that there are other who picked up on this. Take this one for example.

"Have Europeans already forgotten that we just got through a century in which militant atheists (Mao, Stalin) and pagans (Hitler) staged the worst crimes in the history of man?

Oh America (and the world in general), what has happened to you?

I may at some future date write the reasons I feel America has fallen short of the mark and why our nation is drifting into the nuttiest stuff evil can conceive.

May God have mercy upon us, and bring our nation to a state of awakening and repentance.

Ps 9:17 ¶ The wicked will return to Sheol, {Even} all the nations who forget God.
Ps 9:18 For the needy will not always be forgotten, Nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever.
Ps 9:19 Arise, O LORD, do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before You.
Ps 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD; Let the nations know that they are but men. Selah.

D-Day and My Book Bag

Hey everyone!

Well, I had a paintball fight yesterday in which we reinacted D-Day! That was so much fun!!!! In the course of doing that, we discovered something that the Allies should have done on D-Day. All the troops should have been armed with full automatic weapons. A person with a automatic can make their own cover. :-D Almost everytime a guy with an auto-type weapon would attack the German bunkers, all the defenders would duck, allowing the rest of the Allied troops to reach cover on the sea wall. :-) We had a great time.

Also, I was hoping to do a Square Talk show on the State of the union address, but I am not sure if we will be able to get it together. HOWEVER, Alex told me of a cool new way to do a micro show all by one's self. So I may do that here pretty soon.

My Current book bag is:
When Character Was King (About Ronald Reagan, really good book. There is only one bad word in it, and that is included in a quote by an aide.)
Unfit for Command (About Kerry)
To Renew America by Newt Gingrich (Good Book)

President Bush's State of the Union Address

I was also at work when President Bush addressed our country last night, BUT my mom recorded it for me! I hope we can do a Square Talk Radio show on that soon.

It was a very good speech from what I have seen so far. On of the things that struck me funny was the Democratic response. It seemed...well...Conservative. It looked to me as if the Liberals are doing what they do best...flip try to regain power in a country that is leaning further and father to the right. The Democrat Governor of Virginia spoke out for them, and he seemed to be pandering to conservatives, speaking of "God" and "working together for the good of our nation". Both of those things are good, but strangely "Carter-ish". If the liberals are so willing to cooperate why don't they quit trying to filibuster conservative court appointees? The answer?

They are not moving to the right, they just want you to think they are. They are playing off a Southern "down home" Democrat with the goal of throwing the Republicans out of the White House and out of power. They have done it before with Carter and Clinton and they are going to see if it will work again. So do not to tricked, ladies and gentlemen, the Democrats are still liberal and it is only YOUR movement to the right that has changed their tune. And do you really want people who flip flop on every issues depending upon the latest poll making decisions for your country?

Very interesting. More later, hopefully with the other fine members of Square Talk. :-)

Alito Confirmed!

Quotes from Ben Franklin

If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worthy reading,
Or do things worth the writing.

To err is human, to repent divine; to persist devilish.

Well done is better than well said.

Keep thy shop, and thy shop will keep thee.

He that hath a Trade, hath an Estate.

What you seem to be, be really.

Love your Neighbour; yet don't pull down your Hedge.

He that speaks much, is much mistaken.

Glass, China, and Reputation, are easily crack'd, and never well mended.

A good example is the best sermon.

The end of Passion is the beginning of Repentance.

To be proud of virtue, is to poison yourself with the Antidote.

He that would Fish, must venture his bait.

A little neglect may breed great mischief...for want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost.

There are no fools so troublesome as those that have wit.

Doing an injury puts you below your enemy; revenging one make you but even with him; forgiving it sets you above him.

Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor liberty to purchase power.

Old boys have their playthings as well as young ones; the difference is only in the price.

Sudden power is apt to be insolent, sudden liberty saucy; that behaves best which has grown gradually

Travis Comment: I found these today with looking for material for a small speech I am giving as a senior at our church banquet this year. After discovering that I have not posted in over a week, *gasp* I though I would post these. Look for more soon!

The Law of the Sea Treaty and A New Paintball Gun!

Hey everyone!

I finally broke down and did it. I got a new paintball gun!

Isn't she a beauty? A Kingman Spyder Xtra, this darling can fire paint as fast as I can pull the trigger. :-) Having a job does have its advantages....and its disadvantages, namely my time to blog has been reduced. However, I aim to keep this here site running for a right smart spell yet. /End Backwoods English

My last topic was cloning, so today I believe I will address a new issue that has come to my attention from the GenJ Online Government. There is a treaty called the Law of the Sea Treaty. I have some very big problems with this treaty, some of which are expressed by Eagle Forum here. This treaty would clearly surrender our national sovereignty over our sea lanes and wouldn't be worth the paper it was written on if a war broke out. What is scary about it is the Bush administration supports it!!! Have a look at it and let me know what you think.
Have a good day!

The Job, The Hearing, World War II, and Horse Cloning.

Hello everyone,

Well, I have finished my 4th day on the job and am starting to get the hang of things around the store. Last week was a fun but busy week. The campaigns for Senate are running full steam over at the GenJ Online Government. Can't tell to much about that until it is all over, but I can tell you that our dear friend David Ketter is in the running for President! :-)

I got to hear Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh a lot today, and one of their main topics was Samuel Alito's confirmation hearings and especially the fact that Mrs. Alito burst into tears at one point. I haven't looked into this enough to have a head-fast opinion yet, but something smells rotten in DC.

I have been reading up a good bit of late on the Second World War. with emphasis on the Desert and Air Wars. I borrowed some very worthy volumes on these topics from my Grandma's husband Larry and I have been greatly enjoying reading them. :-)

Now on to another topic. The other day, Dad was reading an article about horse cloning. Here in Oklahoma they are working on cloning prize winning horses to sell for very high prices. My question is, when and if this practice become widespread, will horse prices plummel? For example, if they were to clone a really nice horse, (we will call this horse Black Beauty") the first say hundred clones will bring really good money. But what would happen if cloning became so widespread that there was hardly a uncloned horse left. What if you could run to the sale barn and buy a "Black Beauty#7842" for a song? What would our world be like if this became widespread? (Not just in horses, but in any animal) Would livestock prices fall? Would we ever have "uncloned" livestock again? Please leave me your thoughts in a comment.

The Blogging Boy Scout,

Support Judge Alito!

Hey guys, here is a recent email I got from the ACLJ about Judge Alito. Please read on...

Dear Travis,

It is time to let your voice be heard!

Judge Samuel Alito has been nominated to the high court ... and we must do our part to make sure he is confirmed.

Add your name immediately to our PETITION TO SUPPORT JUDGE SAMUEL ALITO to Senator Tom Coburn and Senator James Inhofe - to ensure they know where you stand concerning the make-up of the Supreme Court of the United States.
The battle ahead for Judge Alito's confirmation is going to be a tough one.
Having been influenced by the abortion lobby and groups like People For the American Way, some Senators have already made up their minds about him. Sen. Hillary Clinton is against him. Sen. Ted Kennedy is against him.

In fact, Sen. Charles Schumer, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said, "If he continuously, given his previous record, refused to answer questions and hid behind 'I can't answer this because it might come before me,' it would increase the chances of a filibuster."
But I believe what you think should matter just as much. The First Amendment empowers you to ''petition the Government'' - so make your voice heard!
When your elected Senators cast their votes just days from now (a full vote is expected by January 20), I want to be certain they have your opinion in mind - because this is perhaps the single most important change at the Supreme Court in our lifetime.


Because Justice Sandra Day O'Connor represents the so-called ''swing vote'' Justice on the current Court, and she has voted against us in major cases ... against a partial-birth abortion ban ... against public displays of the Ten Commandments ... and for ''abortion distortion'' - voting to restrict free speech in certain ways if it involves a protest against abortion.
So, in spite of my respect for her as a member of the highest court in our land, I must also tell you plainly that she should be replaced by someone who shares your values and mine.
This is not a matter of casual preference. The next Supreme Court Justice will play a pivotal role in major decisions regarding religious freedom, same-sex marriage, abortion, parents' rights, pornography, the Pledge of Allegiance, and more. Which direction will America go?
Your opinion matters. Senators Coburn and Inhofe MUST hear your voice! And it should count when it matters most - as the Senate will decide, in the coming days, the make-up of the Supreme Court of the United States.

This is why I urge you to sign your name to our PETITION TO SUPPORT JUDGE SAMUEL ALITO to your U.S. Senators RIGHT NOW! The hearings have already started - so your quick response is crucial!

New Job and a Movie!

Hey guys!

I got a job today! It is down at the local grocery store("Double A" if my aunt happens to be reading this). *grin* I am really looking forward to starting! I have never really had such steady work before, and am looking forward to the benefits this could bring me.

In other news, I recently made a video for the Generation Joshua Conservative Party. And included within this video is a picture of me! *gasp* So for those of you who have always wondered just what this boy scout guy looks like, this is your chance to find out! Just click the link below!

Note: I had a typo and misspelled "conservative" at the end of the video and as of yet have not had time to change it and upload a new one, but I think you will like it just the same. :-)

More Fires in Oklahoma while Life Goes On

Hello everyone.

Good grief we have had a ton of fires lately. Since my first post on fires, there has not been a day go by I have not seen firetrucks fly by our house. There have been 250,000 acres burned so far with 30,000 of those in the last week. Dad and I spend a good deal of Saturday afternoon turning our farm truck into a firefighting rig. We added a 275 gallon water tank to the back and stowed several 5-gallon buckets in the back for water dispention.(sp?) We have still been watering around the house and have added several water containers about the house with water ready to use. On our way to church today we couldn't help but notice the preparations people were making. One rancher had disked up the road next to his pasture so that any fire would be greatly slowed by 8-16 foot wide strip of dirt. Our neighbor to the south has brushhoged a 50 foot strip of his pasture that is nearest to the highway so as to slow any fires progress. After preparing defenses for the house, Dad and I have been discussing different plans on how to keep a fire out of our 90 something bales of hay. (With hay prices at about 10 dollars a bale you can see why we would want to protect these) But life goes on here in the great state of Oklahoma. I had a great time at the end of the year party last night. We got to play Halo 2 and BattleFront 2 quite a bit. :-) Some of the costumes were really good! One girl came as Susan from the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. My sister Chloe went as a teacher, and she looked very teacherly I can tell you! We had several OU and OSU fans, a caveman, a deer hunter, Sherlock Holmes and Watson, the Phantom of the Opera, as well as Raggidy Ann and Andy. It was a very enjoyable evening.

That's all for now!
