What a blatant false insult!
The three are not the same!
Hobos are not bums!
Bums are not tramps, and tramps aint hobos.
Hobos have pride.
Once an active Hobo, now a proud "Hobo at Heart".
Yes we have the "wander lust" and we love to travel and see this great country of ours from time to time via rail and road. But we work and aint "bums" as Fruhlinger calls us.
" ...a real hobo will work for his stuff. He's not looking for a free handout. He wants no problem from anybody, and he'll give no problem to anybody..."-Buckup Ken
" A bum is a guy who doesn't do anything. He's your local drunk, sitting around on the park bench all the time, feeding the squirles, pooping in his drawers, and getting drunk, until they get mad at him and run him out of town and he finds another town and does the same thing."
" A hobo is a person who travels and works and makes his way as honest as he can. No sticks, no stones, no attachments, nothing to hold him down."-Captain Dingo
" When it's cold outdoors, a tramp takes a newspaper and stuffs it down his shirt to keep warm. A hobo does the same thing, but he reads it first..."-Adman
"One More Train to Ride"-Cliff Williams [Oats]
Josh Fruhlinger writting for Wonkett has written an article slandering both Hobos and Republicans:
"Aren’t the Republicans supposed to be against identity politics? A core conservative belief is that we shouldn’t worry about our government “looking like America,” with its various genders and ethnic groups, but that we should instead choose our leaders based solely on merit (i.e., whiteness, maleness, heterosexuality, former-lobbyist-ness)."
["... with its various genders.."-how many are there?]
["i.e., whiteness, maleness"--slander]
"Unfortunately, due to Ben Quayle’s unexpected stranglehold on the Arizona Republican Party, this hobo-advocate had no choice but to put these brave bums on the Green Party..."
["...but to put these brave 'bums' ..." calling hobos 'bums]-an blatant insult! [ and exactly 'how' did Ben Quale 'put them' on the Green Party?] Are these guys hobos, former hobos, or bums? Now if they're 'bums', they're not hobos!
["...but to put these brave 'bums' ..." calling hobos 'bums]-an blatant insult!
[ and exactly 'how' did Ben Quale 'put them' on the Green Party?]
Are these guys hobos, former hobos, or bums?
Now if they're 'bums', they're not hobos!
Real Hobos are not bums!
Fruhlinger then goes to describe these hobos he calls 'bums':
Benjamin Pearcy, 20, is running for the Arizona Corporation Commission, which oversees public utilities, railroad safety, and securities regulation. Who better to regulate the railroads than someone who rides the rails from town to town? “Dressed up spiffily, he described himself as the illegitimate son of a stripper who had had run-ins with the law and a tough childhood but who had pulled his life together. ‘I’ve been homeless,’ he said, his eyes darting back and forth. ‘I got a place. Anyone can do it. We’re all good enough.’”
[ Doesn't sound like a 'bum' to me]
“Anthony Goshorn, 53, a candidate for the State Senate whose bushy white beard and paternal manner have earned him that nickname ['Grandpa'] on the streets … Grandpa, widely known in the area through the pedicab he drives for hire, is against higher taxes and for God in the classroom..."
["... against higher taxes and for God in the classroom..."-sounds like sound conservative positions]
I'd vote for a God loving, hardworking , patriotic Hobo anyday before I'd vote for a marxist, socialist, Islamist water-carrying, dhimmi democrat any day of the week!
Something else Iowa is famous for : the Hobo Convention
Hobo Liberty Justice:
Gerry Connolly, or "Jihad Gerry Connolly", as he has been described for his voting and support of the Saudi Islamic school in northern Virginia, while chairman of Fairfax Board of Supervisors, faces the voters Nov. 2nd.
The Saudi Islamic Academy in northern Virginia boasts an alumni of terrorist graduates, anti-Jewish,Christian sentiments in textbooks, and has been described by local law enforcement as a "breeding ground for terrorists".
Connolly is up for re-election in Virginia's 11th congressional district in a tight race with Republican challenger Keith Fimian. Fimian has recieved the endorsement of the Washington Examiner:
"Connolly’s inflammatory campaign ads paint Fimian as an “extremist” and himself as a fiscal conservative. Both claims are false. Voters should disregard these distractions from Connolly’s record in Congress and send him back to Fairfax. "
Both campaigns acknowledge the race is tight.
Aside from Connoly's liberal record in Congress in support of the Obama agenda, pro-amnesty for illegal aliens, he has lent himself in support of the Islamist agenda as well:
"ISA protestors noted that the former chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors – Gerry Connolly – "took Saudi money" while voting to keep the Saudi school open. Connolly, now a U.S. congressman, "received numerous contributions to his congressional campaign as he was shepherding the last lease renewal through the board and attacking opponents," said VAST founder James Lafferty."
"Lafferty cited data reported in the book "Muslim Mafia" which show Connolly received thousands of dollars in donations from several Virginia Islamists under federal investigation for financing terrorism. In addition, the book reveals, Connolly received an $18,758 windfall from the Saudi government's U.S. public-relations firm – Qorvis Communications – while fighting to keep open the Saudi academy."

Stakelbeck Report on Saudi Islamic Academy last year:
Fatah Palestinian Authority leader Abu Mazen [Abbas] uses map of "Palestine" with no "Israel".
Not the first time Abbas has displayed his true intentions towards Israel:
Abbas defends Hamas-PLO Flag Erases Israel:
Abbas With PLO flag Erasing Israel- from pmw.org.il--Itamar Marcus, Barbara Crook :
" Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stands at attention in front of the PLO symbol, which places the Palestinian flag over the map of Israel. This symbolizes that all of Israel is, or will someday be, "Palestine." The picture is from yesterday's PLO Central Committee meeting (PATV Jan-13-08). "-pmw.org.il
Between radical democrat Jerry Brown and rino Meg Whitman, Californians have no suitable candidate for governor.
Mitt Romney spent $ 10 mill of his own money in a failed effort to win the Iowa Caucus in 2008. He was bested by Huckabee who spent $ 1 mill on Iowa.
After the big primary showdown of Super Tuesday Romney suspended his campaign for the presidency after spending $ 42 mill of his own money out of a total campaign expense of $ 97 mill.
By contrast rino candidate Meg Whitman has spent $162 mill trying to be elected governor in California.
Thought Romney was bad!
That says something is wrong. Wrong with the candidate and wrong with the message.
Campaigns are a legitimate means of vetting a candidate in the sense that we can learn a lot about how a candidate may govern a state, or the country, by how they govern their campaign.
Item #9 of " Ten Things You Didn't Know about Meg Whitman" :
Tragic mistake that should not be repeated .
Quite sure that the choice of national cochair for McCain/Palin was not Sarah's choice:
McCain's National Cochair :
"Media Coverage of Sarah Palin is Completey Fair, Not Sexist"-Whitman
"Meg Whitman, McCain's national campaign co-chair and former CEO of e-Bay, veered off message today in an interview with Fox News, describing the media vetting of Palin as "completely fair" and saying that there hasn't really been any sexism to speak of in the coverage."
Brit Hume of Fox News disagreed.
Carly Fiorina was among those Republican women who slammed the unfair media bias and sexism against Sarah Palin. Video below:
Reaping the consequences of the premature ceasefire with Hizbullah in 2006:
Report Warns Lebanon Takeover Planned-[by Hizbullah]
"BEIRUT, Lebanon – A new Middle East intelligence document warns that Hezbollah may be ready to take over Lebanon in a move that Iran supports because it could draw an attack by Israel, which then would be cited as an offensive provocation deserving a response by Tehran, according to a report in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin."
"The report is from Global Information System, which provides unclassified global, intelligence and analysis for the U.S. government."
See here also.
This was utterly predictable.
If Condi Rice displayed the same passionate zeal during UN negotiations over the terms of a cease-fire with Hizbullah in the 2nd Lebanon War,
as she does in bullying Israel to make concessions, no doubt there would have been a strong Chapter 7 mandate, instead of the weak 1701 Resolution.
As it was, Secretary Rice appeared eager to give in on the original American position and conceeded to the demands of the Arabs and the Europeans.
With the result being a token UNIFIL force with observer status only. And that's exactly what they do, observe and watch Hizbullah re-arm and re-supply.
Lebanese Christian Leader Takes on Hizbullah [CBN]:
From Israel Today:
The growing grassroots conservative movement in the US known as the “Tea Party” is set to expand to Israel this coming Sunday.
The opening rally will be held at the Zionist Organization of America House in Tel Aviv under the banner of “Say No to Obama.”
Israeli organizers behind the event said the Israeli branch of the Tea Party will be just as patriotic and provocatively conservative as its American counterparts. The first order of business for the new branch will be combatting US President Barack Obama’s efforts to reinstate a Jewish building freeze in Judea and Samaria.
Organizers noted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is under a tremendous amount of pressure from Obama and the American liberal elite, and so they want to counter that with pressure of their own.
The Tel Aviv Tea Party rally is expected to be attended by several high-ranking members of Netanyahu’s own Likud Party.
There was concern months ago that the Tea Party’s deep Christian connections would keep most conservative Jews from joining or backing the movement. But the launch of an Israel branch has clearly proved that fear unfounded. Most conservative Jews have realized, or are starting to realize, that Bible-believing Christians are
Settlements in Judea and Samaria are equvilent to Tea Parties:
So evidenced by un-Biblical and "Christian anti-semitic" statements made during a synod gathering of 185 Catholic clergy in St.Peters Basilica.
Former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Daniel Ayalon described this Vatican synod as a forum for Arab propaganda.
I agree 100%.
The church is not the "new" Israel.
Ryan Jones of the Israel Today magazine adequately sums it up:
"Mordechai Levi, Israel’s ambassador to the Vatican, decried Bustros’ comments and the damage they had done to strengthening ties between Israel and the Church.
The Catholic Church has for years been trying to repair its image as an institution steeped in anti-Semitism. But Bustros’ remarks make fairly clear that the Vatican remains as dedicated as ever to replacement theology - that teaching that says God has tossed aside the Jews, despite is irrevocable promises to them, and that “the Church” has instead inherited those promises."-Ryan Jones
This heretical false doctrine, whether it is refered to as "relacement theology", "successionism", or "supercessionism", weaseled it's way into the church sometime after non-Jewish gentiles became the majority of believers and followers of the Jewish messiah Yeshua [Jesus].
A brief note on the english word "church":
The word rendered as church in modern english Bibles dates back to the Middle Ages. That is, the modern recognized spelling of the word.
1st Tim 3:15 plainly states that the church is the "house of God".
Throughout the Bible the House of God is also refered to as the temple of God.
In Matt Yeshua [Jesus] stated that the one who hears his words and does what he says is like a person who builds their "house" on a rock. And when the storms come, that house will not 'fall' because it is built on a rock.
In John 2:19 Yeshua [Jesus] said,-
"Destroy this temple [ House of God] and in three days I will raise it up again."
Zechariah 6:12-"...behold the man whose name is the Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord"
This is a reference to the Messiah.
In Scripture the God of Israel is frequently refered to as the "Rock".
David said "You oh Lord are the "Rock" of my salvation.
"The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me..."-2nd Samuel 23:3
God is the Rock
Matt 6:18-"...upon this Rock I will build my [ house, temple] and the gates of hell will not prevail against it."
This is so important because there is a counterfeit Christian cult religion that teaches that the "temple" not made with hands raised up and is being built by Yeshua, "fell" and dissappeared from the earth until a man named Joesph Smith brought about it's restoration in the mid-1800's in America.
The above Scriptures serve to blow that false teaching out of the water.
Back to the word church.
William Tyndale who is responsible for the very first New Testament printed in the english language never use the word church a single time in his translation. Instead he used the word "congregation".
Flash forward to the publication of the 1611 King James Bible. There were strict rules put in place for it's translation. One of those rules was that the "old ecclesiastical words" be retained. Especially the word "church".-
Metzger, Bruce, "The Bible in Translation",p. 71, 2001
One thing that comes to mind concerning this is the possible lingering anger and animosity towards William Tyndale held by Papal authorities.
After all, Tyndale along with Luther, Wycliffe, and other reformers were very steadfast in their insistance that there is no Biblical basis for the office of a "Pope".
Indeed, in Scripture we find a list of designated postions such as teachers, evangelists, pastors, prophets, emissaries [apostles]. But no "Pope".-Ephesians 4:11
And these were for the work of the ministry and the edifying the "body" of believers. The "body" which are the "living stones" :
"...you yourselves , as living stones , are being built into a spiritual "house" to be priests set apart for God to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to him through Yeshua the Messiah."- 1st Peter 2:5
We who by God's unmerited, undeserved favor, have come to embrace and follow the Christ [ Messiah] , experiencing the forgiveness of all our sins, we have not replaced Israel, nor succeeded Israel, nor become a new Israel,--
rather as Paul says "...we have been grafted in". We have been made partakers of the salvation that Yeshua [Jesus] plainly says in John 4:22 is "...of the Jews."
The Bible, both the Hebrew Tanakh and New Testament [mainly written by Jewish believers] are the divinely inspired Word of God.
But sometimes, while they do their best, translators can make mistakes.
A drawback to the use of the word "church" is that while possibly unintentionally, it has the effect of causing one to focus on a "building", or on a "religious organization",-
- and not on the Lord Himself or the "temple not made with hands" he said he would raise up in John 2:19.
Try it out and see. What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you hear the word "church"?
The God of Israel and the Rock Messiah Yeshua [Jesus]?,
the "body of believers", or "living stones" that comprise the temple not made with hands that trancends both denominational and non-denominational organizations?,
- your own, or some other particular religious organization, or perhaps a building where your particular denomination or religious organization meets?
Symbol of the Messianic fellowship [ assembly, congregation] in Jerusalem:
As can readily be seen from this symbol, the first Messianics [Christians] did not consider themselves as no longer Jewish because of their embrace of Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah.
Or that they were part of a new religion. But rather, a new chapter in their relationship with the God of Israel.
They were experincing what the King James Bible refers to as the New Covenant prophesied in Jeremiah 31:31.
Israeli Pastor Wayne Hilsden says this is better understood as a "Renewed Covenant"-audio and video link here.

Trick the Iranian government into changing it's name to "Serbia"
"If Iran changed it's name to Serbia, every nuke site in the country would be bunker-busted bombed by NATO back to the stone age today"
The U.S., NATO on the wrong side again: Iran/Serbia Contrast
"The negotiations with Israel have been ongoing for more than 19 years since the Madrid peace conference in 1991 and until now have not achieved anything," -said Mohammad Ashtayeh,-- a member of the Palestinian negotiating team.- [from WND]
What an absolute falsehood!
The facts since 1991:
A bloodthirsty jihad terror organization, the PLO, achieved undeserved worldwide political and diplomatic legitimization through propaganda and the willful blindness of world leaders and their governments.-
See former U.S. Ambassador to the UN Jeane Kirkpatrick's paper, "How The PLO Was Legitimized".
That same willfull blindness and political pressure on Israel led to the establishment of the PLO Fatah "Palestinian Authority" and self-autonomy!
A bloodthirsty Arafat jihad terror faction of the PLO, the Fatah, achieved international recognition as the governing authority to oversee that self-autonomy.
In 2002 during a major Israeli counter-terrorism operation, Defensive Shield, official Palestinian Authority documents captured with Arafat's handwritting, disclosed financial compensation paid to those who had carried out jihad terror attacks against Israeli civilians.
Even so, the Fatah PA has continued to achieve success in obtaining enormous sums of international funding from the U.S. and European Union. As well as funding through the U.N.
Financial corruption among PA officials has long been acknowledged. As well as the misuse of funds for anti-America and anti-Israel incitement in official PA media. And the re-directing of funds for terror.
Abbas has acknowledged that terrorism has been carried out by those who "...did what we ordered them to".
This international legitimization and self-autonomy to govern themselves was achieved even though the PLO, nor Fatah, has never recognized Israel's right to exist.
In fact, a top leader in the Palestinian Authority, Mohammad Dahlan, acknowledged in a television interview that Fatah has never recognized Israel, and that the Palestinian Authority's "recognition" of Israel was only for the purpose of obtaining funding from foreign governments.
This non-recognition of Israel is now fully acknowledged by Mahmoud Abbas, Salam Fayad, and all of the current Fatah PA leadership. They publically acknowledge it even in Western news press.
Abbas falsely claimed that the PLO had recognized Israel in 1993, but as Mohammad Dahlan admitted, that "recognition" was only for duping Western nations to obtain funding.
Last year Fatah officially endorsed a U.S State Dept. recognized terrorist organization, the Al-aqsa Martyrs Brigades, as the "military wing" of Fatah which runs the Palestinian Authority.
Fatah and the Al-aqsa Martyrs Brigades are the same organization. Therefore any further taxpayer funding of the Fatah Palestinian Authority will be against U.S. law. Even though prior U.S. funding of the PA has never met the criteria put forth in the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006, S2370, signed into law by President Bush Dec. 21st 2006.
The truth is that the so-called "peace-process" is now, and has always been, a tactic used by the Islamists to pressure concessions of appeasement from Israel, while their utimate objective remains the total destruction of Israel.
But until the U.S. and other Western governments understand that the Arab Islamist demand for a "Palestinian State" in the heart of Israel's Judea and Samaria,-
the Islamic demand for "Bangsamoro" in the Phillipines,-
the Islamic grab of Serbia's Kosovo, -
that they are not un-related regional conflicts, but part of Islam's global jihad against the non-Muslim world, [house of war],
- the Fatah and the other jihadists will continue to achieve success.
At the very least,- success in milking the international governments for more $ billions in foreign aid.
