Women in Combat

I haven't done a lot of talking about the issue of women in combat but this testimony prompts me to express my opinion.

America hates babies. We break perfectly good reproductive systems, take poisonous medicines, and fight in every way we can to avoid them. If, despite all our fighting, a baby happens, we rip its legs, arms and head off to get rid of it. If someone else has more than 1.8 babies we call them stupid tell them to stop it.

Because we hate babies, we also hate womanhood. After-all, the biggest difference between men and women, the one difference feminists simply can't get rid of, is that women have babies and men don't.

Seriously, look at everything feminists promote and everything they degrade. If it is nurturing, inherently "female," they label it "degrading, brainless, or unnecessary." If it is masculine, they hysterically demand every woman be allowed, nay, encouraged to do it.

So, because we don't value babies, we don't value baby-makers. This makes us pretend that there is no difference between men and women.

A big fat lie.

Men are conquerors. Whether they are taking on an enemy with a gun or the physics of building a skyscraper, men conquer. Yes, this is inherently violent.

Women are nurtures. They baby their babies as well as their hubbies. They baby their neighbors and their culture. They abhor violence.

To put a woman into combat (a very violent environment) is to expose her to more violence than any woman should ever have to see, much less experience. And yes, women are in more danger then men. They are weaker physically, and much more susceptible to torture and abuse.

But we don't care about all this. We only care about money and promotions. We don't care about protecting the baby-makers. In fact, the more baby-makers we get rid of the fewer babies we have right?

Simple logistics:
Women with good diets ad no birthcontrol have an average of seven babies each.
The most famous mom-of-many in america today has birthed a mere 20. "THE greatest recorded number of children born to one mother in the world, according to the Guinness 2004 world records is 69. In 27 pregnancies, the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev of Russia gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets" (wik.ianswers.com)

A man can father many more babies in his life. "Sharifian Emperor of Morocco, Mulai Ismail (1646-1727). In 1703 he had at least 342 daughters and 525 sons and by 1721 he was reputed to have 700 male descendents." (ask.com)

This means women are more valuable than men and should be more protected by far.

There is also the apparent idea that "mothering" is unnecessary or can be done part time, as if you flip a switch off when you leave a baby off at the baby sitters.

The fact is that "the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." The people who raise the children determine what tomorrow's world looks like.

The baby raisers are, in fact, the most powerful people on planet earth. Another good reason to protect the moms.

(No wonder the politicians want as many babies as possible under the control of their specially trained daycare workers)

So, no. Women should not be in the violence of combat. they should be nurtured and respected for that job that only they can do.

If we don't hold to this idea, we WILL regret it.

Simple churches

Been reading a book by the name of The Simple Church. I think they are right. Now just how to implement it all. Hmmmm.....

Had a couple with tummy aches yesterday. Hopefully it was just all the hot dogs and chips at grandma's Sunday.

Going to mom's to visit with Uncle Jesse. Enjoying having him around:-)

Joined HerbMentor:-)
Looking forward to learning so much.

I so miss being home all day when life works out that I don't get that. What with caring for mom and making sure I'm there to visit with beloved relatives as much as possible, I sure miss home.Now don't get me wrong; I love being able to care for mom and wouldn't give u the visit time for the world.

I just miss my home.

The kids are different too. They get along better when we are home all the time.

Started school back today. We've been doing bits and pieces but this is our first full day in some time. Nice.

It will take time to work in my new spelling and (when it arrives) grammar.

Hard days

I am the most blessed woman I know. I have a warm house, a little land, pets, a wonderful hubby, and great kids. My parents are still around and supportive of my lifestyle choices. I love my little church.

Yet some days are harder than others. Some days I actually feel like the proverbial "red headed step child." I know I'm being ridiculous, but there you go.

And then God sends the words I need.

Towels and Life Choices

These two posts are from the premier Christian herbalist, Shonda Parker. This is a woman who has made it her life's job to teach health, nutrition, herbal remedies (especially with pregnancy). She is the go-to gal for Christian Midwives.

And she has cancer.

She has been a true inspiration to me.

Joshua kissed me last night:-) So cute. I love toddlers.

Course, I love all the other ages too.

Jim has his driving test today. Wish him luck (or more accurately, God's blessings).

So a poster on Facebook prompts me to ask; Is there such a thing as a bad mother? And if there is, how can you tell?

A dear friend posted a poster that shows four women and their babies. One says she co-sleeps, one circumcises, one exclusively breastfeeds. The caption says "And I'm a good mom. We do things differently and we love our babies exactly the same.Let's celebrate that."

My question is, if everyone is a good mom no matter what, then is anyone really a good mom? Are all these choices really truly equal?

short on time today, but more later.
