Oklahoma Heritage Farm Prepares for Fall Festival — The Maze is Ready!

Oklahoma Heritage Farm is located near Vera between Bartlesville and Tulsa on Highway 75.  It is the homeplace, family farm, store and project of Mike and Margaret Snow.  Recently an article was written about them by Susan Albert in Bartlesville Examiner Enterprise.

Mike and Margaret Snow are carrying on the lifestyle of their five-generation family. Like their parents and grandparents before them, they work the soil, grow the crops, raise the farm animals and provide for themselves.

We were “self-sustaining” before the term became popular, Margaret Snow said.

With the Oklahoma Heritage Farm Store, situated on acreage south of Ramona off U.S. Highway 75, the Snows have opened up their home and farm as a way to share the wealth of homegrown heirloom produce, homemade goodies and gifts and decor that depict the diverse heritage of Oklahoma.

“We feel like we live the good life and want to share that with people,” said Snow, who acknowledged they work long hours in the garden, she cooks every day, and they don’t have a computer in their home.

“We love to work,” she said. “We’re not non-progressive; we like it that way.”

They grow heirloom varieties — the same seed they sell in the store, and they grow it as organically as possible. They sell what is in season from their own backyard and don’t bring in any produce from other vendors. Right now it’s the early vegetables and greens, she said. Later, they will have summer vegetables plus fruit.

What they don’t sell from the garden they preserve — in a jar, in the freezer or in a dehydrator. The Snows also give away a lot of produce to the church, neighbors or elderly who may need fresh produce.

The Truth Shall Set you Free…The School Board, School Bond & City Council – Joel Rabin speaks out!

For your prayerful consideration because a friend told me (and I agree) that it is worse than you think. First the current school board has not done a good job of setting priorities, second there is a faulty growth assumption built into their numbers, and third we all need to learn to live within our means! Vote No on August 23rd and let’s save our community from bonded indebtedness that we cannot afford.

=========================

This is the 7th “weekly” 30-second CableOne Ad for my [Joel Rabin’s] Ward 4 City Council candidacy (in HD) entitled, “The Truth Shall Set You Free . . . The School Board, School Bond & City Council”. It comes directly from my Public Comment to the Bartlesville City Council on Monday, August 1st. It starts August 15th, and will be shown through August 23rd (the day of the School Bond vote), on seven key CableOne TV channels . . . A&E, Discovery, ESPN, HGTV, TBS, Fox News, and the Food Channel.

My redirection to an all-out “VOTE NO” campaign against the August 23rd School Bond vote came on the heels of our local media’s reporting . . . and the School Board’s admitting . . . that the half of the School District’s bus fleet is “Outdated and Unsafe”. That did it for me personally, in terms of the School Board “going over the top”.

The Jews In The Attic Test by Joe Huffman (2009)

anne frank writing 1942

The Jews In The Attic Test

To the best of my knowledge I [Joe Huffman] am the originator of this test and the name I use to describe it.  It first came about in 1999 while I was working with Cease Fear (Cease Fear predates The Pink Pistols by about a year although the Pink Pistols is far more successful).  We were putting hand-outs in the shops in the Capital Hill area of Seattle for NRA Refuse to Be A Victim and Home Firearm Safety classes.  The Capital Hill area is well known LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Trans-sexual) community in the Seattle area.  Our goal was to teach people of the LGBT community how to defend themselves against people who would attack them (gay-bashings).

Several of the others and I in Cease Fear were certified NRA firearms instructors and were willing to donate our time to help make their lives safer.  One of the discussions we had amongst ourselves as we walked from shop to shop was how to explain to others how important our right to keep and bear arms was to our freedom.  People tend to understand the importance of freedom of speech and the freedom of the press pretty well and some of the other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.  But the Second Amendment was and is viewed as unimportant and perhaps even counterproductive by many in today’s society.

I explained to the others in my little band of activists that I looked at all laws that restricted freedom with a view to the impact it would have in a worst case scenario of our government run amok.  Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death?  Although I pretty much made everything up on the spot I told them I called this test my “Jews In The Attic Test”.

Furthermore I told them that if it fails this test no further discussion is really needed, the law must be opposed in the most vigorous manner possible.

Some laws that fail the test and why:

bullet Government mandated ID cards and the authority to demand them at any time.  The oppressed class will be unable to masquerade as a member of the neutral or oppressor classes.
bullet Searches without probable cause.  Imagine you are attempting to smuggle your “Jews in the attic” to a safer hiding place.  If the police at the roadblock can search all vehicles then you and your precious cargo are headed to the “work camps”.
bullet Government monopoly on medical care.  This is a bit surprising — isn’t it?  If it is illegal for you to pay someone for anonymous health care then how can your “Jews in the attic” receive health care?
bullet Firearm or firearm owner registration.   The registration information can be used to confiscate the firearms used to protect innocent life — as it was under the 1938 Weapons Control Act in Nazi Germany.
bullet Elimination or severe restriction of anonymous financial transactions.  The purchase of food and other supplies for your “Jews in the attic” would show up in the records as being excessive compared to what your needs were.  Just as power consumption records are used today to catch home marijuana growers.

I continue to use this test to this day and advocate its widespread use by others.

What You Should Focus On…

What you should Focus on

I love simple graphics that make a clear point.  If you need more help figuring out what is in the piece where the two circles intersect, make two lists:

  • Things that matter
  • Things you can control (or at least think you can have some ability to impact)

Anything on both lists is something you should consider focusing on!

Of course if you want to add one more filter — seek the Lord on the matter and make sure it lines up with both His word and His leading in your life.  That will help you hone in on the priorities for right now!

A Question for the Offended: Remedy for a Crisis — Clinton, Trump or ?

Originally posted JULY 19, 2016

obamao

Four grueling years ago,  the Wall Street-funded  2-Party duopoly imposed a horrible choice upon the American people:

The moderate Mitt ROMNEY,  Vulture Capitalist,  vs.  Barry Soetoro-Obama,  the flashy subversive Socialist, a closet Muslim (and who knows what else).

Although Texas Congressman Ron Paul energized the Republican Liberty movement by packing hundreds of arenas with millions of young, enthusiastic supporters, the US Corporate Media assisted the neo-Conservative  cabal of Bush-Rove-Romney in splitting the vote from one primary to the next, covering up the subterfuge, and squandering this vital new wave of potential  life-long Republican advocates and reformers.

 

paul-campaign

Who can forget the betrayal of the Bush-Rove-RNC’s  engineering of the nomination of Mitt Romney through dirty deals from Iowa all the way to Tampa?

Who can forget Romney throwing the fight by losing 2 of 3 debates?   Did Mitt take a dive for Barak Hussein Obama, and the espionage operation known as the Clinton Global Initiative?  Did the Bush-banker crime cartel place him there to ensure the New World Order, declared by George H.W. Bush on  9/ 11/ 1990, would prevail ?

BUT THIS Year a champion arose to take on the US Corporate Media complex and bust down their electronic Berlin Wall of distraction, diversion, and political correctness.

The American people rallied to the sound of a Trump.  We watched  a street brawler  emerge from the GOP pack as the standard bearer for a return to the America First battle cry of the Reagan years.

trump-and-tpp

Donald Trump and select spokesmen exposed the globalist connections of the CFR-dominated /Goldman-Sachs banker cartel behind the other leading contenders (namely, Boy Marco Rubio, Canadian Ted Cruz, & the floundering Jeb Bush).

Trump Accepts Nomination – Here’s the Plan

trump nominatedTonight in Cleveland Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination.  He wasn’t my first choice, but I don’t care much for Gary Johnson and cannot stand Hillary Clinton.  That said, I watched the acceptance speech and thought it would be good to have a record of ‘The Plan’ he rolled out tonight and some tidbits along the way.

Also for any who were supposed to watch and didn’t for summer school, maybe you will find my notes helpful.  Or of course you can watch approximately 4 hours of speeches here on youtube:

Donald J Trump’s – Acceptance of Nomination Speech (my rough notes)

July 21, 2016

The Plan

  • Put America first
  • Americanism not globalism will be our credo
  • American people will come first
  • Safety at home
  • Law and order
  • Rebuild America – jobs and economy
  • Big business major donors media not happy – losing control (cronyism at work)
  • Things must change and now
  • Horrible Trade deals forgotten people – no longer
  • No patience for injustice
  • Great police
  • No tolerance for government injustice
  • Corruption will not be tolerated in administration (example HC – careless / negligent / crimes)
  • Nobody knows the system better than me – I can fix it starting with bad trade deals (reaching out to Bernie Sanders) to bring fairness and justice to all Americans
  • Suspend immigration from suspect terrorist countries until vetting mechanisms in place
  • We will build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration to stop the drugs and gangs from pouring in – enforcement from border control officers (ending catch and release programs)
  • Overstaying visas will stop
  • Americans will wake up in a country where the laws are enforced – considerate and compassionate to everyone but greatest compassion will be for our own!
  • Oath of office
  • Will make country rich again with the greatest business people in the world – bad trade agreements will be turned into great trade agreements
  • Will bring back jobs to this country undoing NAFTA ramifications
  • Reform of tax laws – largest tax reduction of any candidate this year / simplified for everyone!
  • Regulations – ending excessive regulations fast by lifting restrictions on production of energy (steel workers and miners going back to work again)
  • Millions of more jobs
  • Rescue kids by sending them to a safe school of their choice
  • Repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare – chose your own doctor again
  • We will fix TSA at the airports which is a total disaster
  • We will work with student debt and take the pressure off
  • We will rebuild our depleted military (big cheer)
  • Countries we are protecting will be asked to pay their fair share
  • We will take care of our veterans like they have never been taken care of before. Those who served will be able to see the doctor of their choice with no waiting
  • We will eliminate wasteful spending in first 100 days
  • Appoint justices who will uphold laws and constitution
  • Replacement of Scalia will be someone of similar philosophy
  • Endorsed by NRA – supports second amendment
  • Evangelicals – thanks (undeserved and appreciated) – very sincere – speaking your minds in your own pulpits / will work hard to repeal that language without threat of tax exempt status
  • Start believing – America is back bigger and better and stronger than before

There were approx 193k viewers on RNC channel 10:25 approx

Closing: I am with you; I will fight for you; and I will win for you!  We will make America strong again, proud again, and GREAT again. God bless you, I love you and good night!

These things were mentioned in the midst of the list above:

Vice President – Mike Pence of Indiana
Christian – Conservative – Republican (in that order)

Kudos to all of his family – specially the ones who spoke at the convention

Task – to liberate USA from crime and terrorism in our communities — because an attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans.  We must restore law and order – will work with and appoint best and brightest to get the job properly done (side shot to Rudy Guliani)
