Islam religion of peace??

Islam religion of peace?? I chat on the computer with a friend in the Philippines and another in Indonesia. They both tell me the problems they have with the Muslims. I have been warned not to go to Zamboanga City in the Philippines because of the Muslim threat.
Thats why I keep telling people even if you are not religious you better protect Christianity because anytime something is removed it creates a vacuum and it will be replaced by something else. In this case either communism or the conquest by radical Muslims will fill the void when Christianity is silenced.
Make sure you look at the second link. Can you imagine in WWII if we weren't allowed to talk bad about Nazism? We are at war because of Islam and Franklin Graham is going to be silenced because of what he said?

We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in the Philippines because of the high threat of terrorist attack and the high level of serious crime.
Pay close attention to your personal security at all times and monitor the media for information about possible new safety or security risks.
Terrorist attacks could occur at any time, anywhere in the Philippines, including in Manila.
Is this what we want in the US?


Tea Parties are so unlike what the liberal media portray. YES the crowds are angry and want to take back the country but its not the kind of anger or hatred that one needs to be fearful of.
I encouraged my friend to bring his children with him to the National Tea Party in Berea last Sunday so they could witness history but his wife was concerned if their kids would be safe. For the same reason I couldn't even begin to sway a few other friends. They think Tea Parties are attended by nothing but dangerous right wing wacko's. They base all their opinions on listening to the media or a photo of a sign rather than attend one of these meetings to find out for themselves how safe, patriotic and friendly they are. These same people vote without taking the time to see the other side, how can they make an informative decision?

Tea Party One - National Tea Party in Berea.
The set up:

It was an event that I wish my family and more of my friends would of attended. The weather threatened with rain early on but then cleared and was near perfect. I drove the GoGo Bus. The parking staff gave me carte blanche treatment and had me park it right in front of the entrance.
Our enthusiasm and excitement was high not knowing what to expect and how big of a crowd would gather. We arrived early while booths were still setting up and then the fairgrounds started to fill. It was a decent sized crowd but smaller than I expected.
The atmosphere was almost fair like. People walking around, greeting each other, going from booth to booth or stand to stand. Most people had some sort of sign. Some signs were hokey and almost like something you would see at a sporting event. I understand how humor can be used to stress a point but some signs made you feel that these people didn't truly understand the seriousness of the event.
They had a smaller stage set up instead of using the grandstands.

Lasting Impression:
Two speakers really stuck out and made the biggest impact. Senator Tim Grendell and Coach Dave Daubenmire running for congress.
Senator Grendell was his usual self. Some speakers make you feel good but you walk away feeling yeah right he's just saying that to get elected but not with Senator Tim Grendell. He has a track record to back up his words. He has taken on many fights and won. Grendell personifies the Tea Party movement.

Coach Dave was so fired up and vocal it gave me goosebumps. I could just imagine Coach Dave being in charge of a large battalion. He spoke of the time he was arrested for giving water to a dieing person in Florida, that person was Terry Schiavo. He talked about when he was sued by the ACLU for praying with his football team in London, Ohio. His righteous anger and energy is sorely needed in Washington.
The rest of the speakers were good but their names or words didn't stick with me as did Grendell and Daubenmire.

Candidates and Causes:
The booths and stands set up were for candidates and causes with just a few selling things. Mike Guiterez and Pastor Cohen were passing out literature to fight human trafficking in Ohio, SB.235. Another stand had petitions to get on the ballot the repeal of the death tax. I didn't pay to much attention to other issues as I was more interested in speaking with the candidates.

Of the candidates, besides Coach Dave, two impressed me. They were W. Benjamin Franklin and Scott Rupert.
W. Franklin is an author of children's books one of which has a political theme. He is running against Corrigan in the Republican primary and the winner takes on Kucinich in November. Corrigan has the backing of the Republican Party. Ben Franklin is going at it alone, all alone. He has a couple of friends but for the most part he is running his own campaign and doing what he can. Ben impressed me. All he had was a table and a couple of jugs of fruit drink he was passing out in small cups. This is about as grass roots as you can get. I liked him.

Another candidate that impressed me was Scott Rupert. Scott has never ran for office, never held any political position. He is a truck driver. I asked him why does he qualify? He said I read the constitution and I can't possibly do worse than those elected now. Scott has a point. If you are looking for an independent candidate, one who knows what its like to be a common working man, Scotts your choice. I feel he has enough common sense and street smarts to make a difference.

The Arrival - The tea party bus:
I've attended other Tea Parties but never the National so I wasn't sure what all the noise was about concerning the arrival of the Bus. It ran late but they kept giving updates that it was getting close. The Tea Party Bus had the entertainers/national speakers of the movement. Comedians Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live) and Jim Labriola (Home Improvement) were some of the bigger known names.
I am not sure what to make of the tour bus. IF this was the original intent of the Tea Party movement to have known acts and entertainers to spread the word then they are doing their job. IF these Conservative entertainers are the counterpart to the Hollywood Left then I can go along with it. But IF they were just added to make money and to commercialize the event then its wrong and will kill the movement.
They had their faces on the back of the bus, one of which is of Sarah Palin. Seeing her face didn't excite me at all. Campaigning for McCain has damaged her with the Conservative cause.

I have mixed thoughts. I thought the location was wrong. Unless you knew the event was going on outsiders could never hear the message. Its these people we want to reach.
A lot of the people in attendance are already actively involved. Almost like preaching to the choir. BUT on the other hand an event like this helps candidates, activists and people who sincerely want to get involved network, promote ideas, get out information, and strategize. Its an excellent opportunity for that.

I thought the first half of the event was much better with local candidates speaking. It was more sincere and they had no strings attached, they spoke from the heart, real grass roots. The National Tea Party entertainers/speakers were entertaining and got out a good message, it might not appease the real political junkies but it could attract the general public, lets hope they are sincere.

In all, I though it was fun, very informative, safe and made me feel proud to be an American.

10% of Cleveland Schools' Teachers laid off

Just remember this come November what the Dems did to Cuyahoga County. Dave Macko, State Rep hopeful, may be right when he says he wants to abolish property tax. Most of it goes to the schools. If people keep their tax dollar they can educate their children by other means rather than a broken public school system.

It's sad when anyone loses a job, but let's face it...Schools,
Government, etc. MUST be cut!

words to atheists and democrats

I had a conversation today with a friend about the Euclid Tea Party.

He said a few people thought there were to many preachers and not enough politicians.
I said I disagree you can not separate politics from religion, its impossible and if you do,
you get communism.
My friend said well Euclid has a Buddhist church do we invite them to speak also?
I said absolutely not. This country was founded on Christian principles. The founding churches in America were Purritans, Quakers, Catholic, Lutherans to name a few. Other religions can coexist peacefully in America but our doctrines and policies should never be changed to accept their view. PERIOD!

Oh what you do for me - TOYOTA!

I recall another and another recall from Toyota. Accelerator sticking, roll overs, spare tires falling
off, what next? I myself could never understand why anyone would buy a car with a name that
starts off with the word TOY.

Hey Gang,
I am in a creative and expressive mini-funk. I have so many articles and thoughts rambling in my brain but just can't get motivated. Some of you may be asking yourself what, you just sent a few? But with me I can usually write at least one lengthy article a day so to me its a writing funk.
I know I shouldn't feel like this as things with Euclid are in check, business has improved somewhat over last year, and the excitement of being at the Tea Party on Sunday with another coming up is still fresh. And yet just can't get started.
Maybe its overload with so much going on with our country, the high price of gas that will again hinder me from traveling this year and maybe also the arguing with my Democratic friends who refuse to educate themselves on what is happening here in America. It saddens me when I can't make inroads into their thinking. Hello people, I am going to keep saying it and saying it, over and over again, a warrant was put out and I got arrested for having a nephew stay in my empty rental in Euclid. If this isn't a warning sign to everyone then what is?
When I get like this I never know how long the blockage will last. Hopefully this short outburst will help me get over the hurdle. So until then read these fairly recent chats I had. I think you will find them informative.

This is a chat I had with a long time friend who is a VP for a small community bank. She is concerned about Obama's proposed financial reform. She wrote previously her thoughts of the bank bailout which is posted on my blog.

XXXX(2010-04-04 5:11:23:PM): it is difficult for me to judge as i sometimes feel like i live in a bubble, i am a divorcing mother of three with a really good job with really good health benefits. I personally have not been adversly affected by this administration thus far, however
Carey Masci (2010-04-04 5:11:34:PM): ok
XXXX (2010-04-04 5:11:55:PM): if the financial reform obama is pushing for is passed as it is written community banks will once again pay for the sins of the non-bank financial institutions who crippled this economy

I have computer friends over seas that I have been chatting with for years. Before this mess I was quite proud of America, I would send them things and encourage them to try and visit. But the last few years I have been quiet, I try to steer away from political talk and about the US for many reasons, the unemployment, everything made in China, the demise of the American car, the homo agenda, what happened to me in Euclid just to name a few. Here are a few lines from a chat with my Filipina friend. What led to this was her talking about the value of the US dollar.
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:20:17:AM): our president is a very evil person
xxxx (2010-03-21 6:20:42:AM): now they know who they voted
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:20:49:AM): i didnt i can not vote for an unGodly man
xxxx (2010-03-21 6:20:57:AM): i knew
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:21:04:AM): really you followed the election
xxxx(2010-03-21 6:21:23:AM): not really
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:21:24:AM): how did you know
xxxx(2010-03-21 6:21:44:AM): some said
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:21:50:AM): like who your preacher
xxxx (2010-03-21 6:22:11:AM): some school board member church elder
Carey Masci (2010-03-21 6:22:25:AM): i am embarrassed of my leader
xxxx (2010-03-21 6:22:35:AM): well sometimes people need to learn from their mistakes next time they should be careful whom to vote for

I hope she is right that people have learned from their mistakes.

You know..... I just realized how much I just wrote, maybe I am already over the hump!

judge tells residents to arm themselves

Its getting interesting folks! Quite a few cities are cutting back on law enforcement. It does have its good points but we don't live in Utopia.
Carey K. Masci
Ashtabula County Common Pleas Judge Alfred Mackey was asked what residents should do to protect themselves and their families with the severe cutback in law enforcement.
“Arm themselves,” the judge said. ”Be very careful, be vigilant, get in touch with your neighbors, because we’re going to have to look after each other.”
to read the full article click on the link.

And my friend John in Maine adds......

As you know, I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment.
If the Dem's have their way & beat it down to nothing, the 1st WILL be next.
I've increased my NRA life membership up to Benefactor, knowing they are the only ones out there fighting for the 2nd so we may all stay free.
I encourage ALL to join. I even signed & paid for my daughter's life membership.
God Bless America!!!

Libertarian Candidate for State Representative

Dave is a friend of mine and thought I would pass this along for him. If you have friends living in these areas in Ohio - Bentleyville, Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Chagrin Falls, Chagrin Falls Township, Glenwillow, Hunting Valley, Independence, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Moreland Hills, Oakwood, Pepper Pike, Seven Hills, Solon, Valley View, Walton Hills PLEASE forward this.

My name is Dave Macko I am a member of Libertarians for Life. I disagree with the Libertarian Party national platform concerning this vital issue.
See I believe that the Roe vs. Wade decision should be reversed, repealed by withdrawing the appellate jurisdiction of the US Supreme Court or nullified by the legislature of the state of Ohio. I oppose all abortions except those which result from procedures which are necessary to save the life of the mother or to prevent her from being permanently injured.
The abortion murders of 50,000,000 unborn children are an abomination.
I favor and will vote for a return to Ohio abortion laws prior to 1973 or their strengthening if necessary.

My current website
and my 2008 website,
For Life and Liberty,
David Macko
Libertarian Candidate for State Representative,
Ohio House District 17

An email to my democratic friend

An email I sent to a friend, only the name was changed.

Jane Doe,
I am waving the white flag. All this back and forth is totally non-productive for both of us.
I quit sending you emails for awhile but then when Euclid started up on me and I was on the radio I resumed. I thought for sure you would want to know what was going on. Also, that was my biggest defense BLASTING OUT EMAIL AFTER EMAIL TO LET EVERYONE KNOW in hopes that one of them would land on the right desk.

I am sure you would agree that high gas prices are killing us, I am sure you would agree something needs to be done with job loss, I am sure you would agree and are against Ohio state parks charging entrance fee's, I am sure you would agree with the illegal alien mess and every time you call anywhere it says press one for English, I am sure you would agree its wrong to use your money to help someone pay for an abortion, and I am sure you would agree with this gay agenda being forced on us.
Those are just a few of the major issues facing this country. I am sure you would agree something needs to be done.

I have been at this just about my whole life reading and studying politics. I see what is happening to our country. Try to buy something made in America, almost impossible. Cities are completely run down. THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of houses in foreclosure. RULES AND MORE RULES AND MORE LAWS passed just about daily. Your friend here, Carey, sat in jail because he had a nephew living in his house. Is this the America you want?

As for our different religious beliefs where you believe in the phrase separation of church and state, that doesn't exist. BUT in your defense and in the defense of religion, the America of years ago, both ideologies coexisted peacefully. I don't know of any true believer that will force their beliefs on you as well as you shouldn't force us to take down crosses or other such practices that violate freedom of faith.
Christianity's basis is one of tolerance, preach the gospel and if people don't accept it move on. Most true Christians I know fight things with their vote, informing others and legal protests. ALL very American principles. You get rid of the tolerance and loving nature of the Gospel and America turns into a very evil place where none of those attributes exist. Ask someone who lives in a Muslim or a Communist country if they enjoy the freedoms we do.

So just remember I send you emails and inform you of what is happening to OUR country not to win an argument or to prove that I am right but to save this nation from further ruin.

Its up to you if you want to continue if not I wave the white flag. Nothing is accomplished by arguing.

Sincerely Your Friend,
