Disneyland Trip 2008

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Over Jaryn’s break from school, Nicole and I took the family to southern California to enjoy Disneyland (and California Adventure), Legoland, and the beach. With the addition of Beauen to our small but ever growing family, it was apparent it would be more cost effective to haul everyone by van, than attempt to drag them, our luggage, and car seats on a plane.

We had originally intended to get up early and drive the entire day to get to Garden Grove. Yeah, well that did not work out so well. We made it about 1/2 of the way there stopping in Las Vegas at one of the higher class establishments, La Quinta Inn, to stay the night. I won’t elaborate on that stay, suffice to say sometimes a little more out of the pocket book is better.

Apparently there are people that were not informed on the issues when they voted his almighty into office.

President Benson on Socialism

Thanks Jason for this audio clip. I went to YouTube and was able to locate the full (or most of the) speech President Benson gave. Pay close attention from 2:00 on. Interesting comparison of how this is happening in our day in age. Granted, this was probably given at the height of the Cold War, nonetheless, it has truth as we watch our nation fold to socialist ideas and policies.

Yeah, Let’s Boycott the ENTIRE STATE of Utah!

I will write more about this. For now, suffice to say I am not going to sit down any more and allow this kind of bigoted hypocrisy continue. People are so fast to forget their god now that the @#$% hits the fan regarding their believe systems.

Utah faces boycott after Mormon work for Prop 8

Some talking points:

  1. “The main focus is going to be going after the Utah brand,” he said. “At this point, honestly, we’re going to destroy the Utah brand. It is a hate state.”
    What a blatant, bigoted attack! Lets destroy (notice the usage of the word here, no hate in that right) the Utah brand. It is a hate (yeah, lets let the pot call the kettle black shall we?) state. Unbelievable!

The more I ponder this, the less I focus on proposition 8 and more on the hypocrisy of the special interest groups (in this case the gay and lesbian groups), and their blatant intolerance to those that may have contradictory opinions about issues that affect everyone.


I have come to realize I was a tad irate while all of this was happening. When it comes to being attacked, I take it a bit personally. Hopefully all this will all just fizzle out as most things like this do.

Prop 8 Protesters in SLC: Religious Bigotry

Its 1:25am. I am tired of listening, watching and reading about today’s protest regarding preparation 8. I have many feelings about it and have little time to compose a meaningful and eloquent post about it. So, I will let the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento do it for me, I like their approach anyhow.

Obama’s Tax Plan For Dummies

Another Obama fallacy, the claim that his tax plan increase on incomes of $250,000 or more is only on those that “individually” earn over $250,000. This small business owner has explained how this will affect his business. Yes, it affects you, Utahns. Even if you do not personally take in $250,000. Utah has around 236,000 small businesses. This means, of those 236,000, I would imagine most if not all bring in more than $250,000. All of you feeling Obama is on your side, he is not. He is twisting the truth.
