Document-Randy Barnett - State Representative for HD10 p2 Tue Jun 24 2014

Randy Barnett is ready to go to work for you the taxpayer, protecting, preserving, and defending your rights. He knows the constitution and has always stood for you as a veteran and in the private sector too.

I wish I lived in his district and could actually cast a vote for him. The next best thing I can do is make sure all my friends know about him and remember to vote for him on Tuesday, June 24th.

HD10 covers parts of Washington County and Osage County and all of Nowata County.  There is a map of the district on his website.

Here is a vote reminder message from Randy Barnett himself.  I call him the taxpayer’s best friend in HD10.

National Opt-Out Day – November 24th – Say No to Naked Body Scanners!

Special thanks to Grassroots in Nebraska and Shelli Dawdy for this pic


Special thanks to Adam Kokesh ‘the Man’ for this video on Opt-Out Day – November 24th

If you are as concerned as I am about the police state we are having thrust upon us at every turn, please consider taking some action to reverse the trend — for the children (and everyone else too!).

This is something everyone can do!

If we hit them in the pocketbook and decline to travel or opt out of the radiation treatment, I bet we will see some changes.  But it will require steady resolve in order to roll back this bureaucracy because the beast likes to eat and needs your willing compliance in order to do so.  Most beasts fight back when threatened, so don’t expect it to be easy.  It must be done though and as quickly as as possible too!

Press on dear friends.

As my good friend RJ Harris (future Congressman) would say – “once more into the breach”.

Blessings all/sc

TSA Sexual Assault — a story that left me shaking

[Editor’s note:  I am tracking the new radiation and groping policies of the TSA and am aware of the rising public alarm at what is being done and thinking “finally people are waking up to the police state mentality”; hoping actually truth be known due to our short short term mentality on other matters.  But hoping nonetheless!  This story left me shaking as I read about Erin’s encounter with the TSA otherwise known as ‘the sexual assault’.  Read if you dare and pray about what you will do to stop overreaching government intrusion in your world, city, or airport and of course setting policy at your state capitol and in your community!/Sandra Crosnoe (Finding Gems and Sharing Them)]

This is Erin’s story on her blog Erin, the $5 Dinner Mom where she says “I cook. I blog. I write cookbooks.”

TSA – Sexual Assault

I have an incident to share that occurred late Friday afternoon, November 12, 2010, around 5:15 in the Dayton International Airport.

I realize the publishing this publically on the internet puts me into a delicate situation, given that I am a high profile blogger and author. This is a difficult incident to share, but it needs to be said…Because I will not be a silent victim.
I will share the facts of the incident in as a matter of fact manner as I can.

I checked into my flight and had a boarding pass printed that included “plus infant.” My baby and I were flying from Dayton, OH, to San Antonio, TX, so I could run in the San Antonio Half Marathon. I was taking my baby along because he is still breastfeeding for part of the day.

I entered the security line, removed the special formula that I had with me for the baby, as well as my quart size baggie with my other liquids. I went through the x-ray machine and metal detector, carrying the baby, with no incident.

Because I was traveling with baby formula, I knew to expect that they would test it with the paper circles for explosives. The TSA agent took all of my belongings over to the table in the center of the explosive screening tables. She asked me, “Are you aware of the NEW policies for carrying liquids through security that were instated 4 years ago?” (capitalized to show the emphasis that she placed on that word.)

I replied, “Yes, I fly with him every several weeks.”

She scanned the formula, then turned to me and said, “Remove your shoes and stand on that black mat for a patdown.”

I said, “OK, what do I do with the baby?”

“You cannot be holding him.” (I am traveling alone.)

Your Time is a Real Treasure

Your Time is a Real Treasure

or Volunteering 101

by Sandra Crosnoe

It has come to my attention that there are some people and organizations trying to abuse the grassroots (i.e. middle America, the silent majority, the real people).  They are doing it in some very manipulative ways and I want to be sure that you are properly informed and warned.  We need to vet the organizations that are seeking to solicit our help.  Now as you read this you are going to think you know the organizations and the people I am referring to.  And you very well may.  But I assure you the guidelines that I am going to spell out for you make sense even if you think you know the people and know them well.  Trust is an interesting commodity.  Once lost it is difficult to regain.  So proceed with caution.  You are about to have your eyes opened wide and may well learn to vet before you trust and even then proceed with caution!

Salt and Light

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  (Matthew 5:13-16)


You are called to be salt and light.  You are a light upon a hill.  You are a treasure in the kingdom of the Lord.  You are called with purpose.   You know this is true!  It resonates within your being.  How could it not be so?   Thus, you have a purpose and a calling and anything that takes you away from your purpose to do what someone else wants you to do – no matter how right it seems, should be evaluated in the light of your own calling.  It really needs to be a constant question of whether it is indeed something that you are called by the one who made you to go and do.

A Double Minded Man is Unstable

What does that have to do with the matter at hand?  Well this, there are lots of people and groups trying to get you to do something for them.  Does what they want have anything at all to do with your purpose and calling?  If so then proceed.  If not stop right there and learn to say NO!  Say it nicely or not now or let me think about it, but go no further until your purpose lines up with theirs!

If your calling is in one direction and you are giving your time to a group or person walking in another direction, then you are actually working against yourself and your calling to please a group or a man in conflict with your own purpose.

Do you see the instability here?  You become a person at war with your own self by virtue of bringing your time and talents under someone else’s agenda.  What if you don’t know they have a different direction and agenda than your purpose and calling?  Doesn’t make any difference in the result – only in your awareness of the result and the abuse.  They say ignorance is bliss, but I don’t find much bliss in being used and/or abused and I rather suspect that you don’t either.

Vetting Process

Thus it makes sense to spend some time investigating the people that you are connecting with and pondering giving time and money to help.  I wish this were easy and that I could make it easy for you, but it is a bit of a dance through life and you will find that no matter how good you think you are at the process, you still have something to learn.  I will say that there is some gifting of discernment and some are more gifted than others about these matters.  So if you are not so gifted, find a friend who is and prayerfully ponder how you proceed.  Here are some very concrete practical ideas, but they should be surrounded with prayer and the wise counsel that you are privy too:

1)    Know the history of the person or group.
2)    Know who is on the inner circle or advisory team for the group.
3)    Know who is on the board of directors.
4)    Know how the group is chartered (501c3, 501c4, 527, Nonprofit, Corporation, Business, Association)
5)    Know the written policy about money, lists, and information flow.  Find out if reports are filed routinely and properly if donations are collected and find out what percentage of costs are used to raise money.
6)    Find out if information flow is two-way and if you have appropriate and timely access to leadership.
7)    Find out if the goals of the group both stated and when put into action line up.
8)    Find out what people/group(s) have been endorsed or supported in the past and/or whom/what groups have been given money, assistance and list access.
9)    Find out what authority the leadership is under and if you agree with both the jurisdiction and the calling of the group. (Note: one must be under authority in order to have authority)
10)   Is the group top down or bottom up? If it is bottom up name local leaders in your area.
11)   Website(s)
12)  Contact information (national/state/local in your area)

Be a Fruit Inspector


Many people will tell you not to judge people.  Well I just say that I am a fruit inspector.  By their fruits you shall know them.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  (Matthew 7:15-18).

Words are cheap unless backed up by actions and repetitively as well!  You will find that good fruit is properly connected to the vine and planted in good soil and living quiet and respectable lives too.  Does the person asking for your help in politics have his or her own household in good order?  This is not rocket science, this is really practical biblical wise counsel!

A good friend of mine Shelli Dawdy (@stubborn_facts) recently wrote an article about Ducks that comes to mind here.  If it waddles, has a bill, and quacks, guess what, it’s a duck!  So determine who you are dealing with and make wise decisions up front in the relationship.

Be instant in season  (or why put off until tomorrow what you can do today!)


On the other hand, we have much work to be done to take back our country and minister to the needs of a hurting community, so don’t procrastinate!  Be instant in season and don’t put off what you can do today.  What if tomorrow never comes!  I have a little post about things that everyone can do – so if you don’t know what needs to be done, take a look at this for some ideas—–> Easy Volunteer Ideas for Everyone

Top Down vs Bottom Up

The pyramid has been inverted in our system for way too long.  The grassroots are beginning to wake up and understand that the pyramid balanced on the point is upside down and top heavy and will topple over.  Our system of a constitutional republic was structured to reserve rights (freedom and liberty) to the people with very limited government (both federal and state).

Let’s be sure that our organizations and relationships work the same way.  You simply can’t build a house from the top down.  You must lay a firm foundation.

. . . . so let the Silent Majority Speak UP

Let the people control the groups and decide who their leaders are.  Let the cream rise to the top.  The media and the power people will not move aside willingly, but they will become irrelevant as soon as you look behind the curtain and discover how few of them there are and how many of you there are.

And now for a practical exercise:  If you volunteer with an organization and you would be willing to tell us the answers to Items 1-12 above, we will publish a chart with your answers.  If you want additional items added, let me know that too.  Happy Vetting!  Comments and findings welcomed below!
