Hell is happy to provide us with vain philosophies and other mental futilities by which we are blinded, flattered, coarsened, and calloused until our damnation is complete; these must be rejected and left behind as we draw nearer to Him who loves us and will heal us from our wounds — self-inflicted and otherwise.

-Jim Wetzel, WFW 9/22

The statement above generated a rant in my heart that continues today, as I see person after person cling to error when God reveals the truth.  So consider last week’s rant this week’s Word for Wednesday:

Why is it that so many people refuse to reject the old when God is trying to show them the new? Christianity is supposed to change us from “glory to glory,” and yet so many cling to their understanding from decades ago, not acknowledging that God reveals Himself to us in bits and pieces as we are able to bear it.

I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. (John 16:12-13)

Out with the old man that causes us so many problems. In with the new, that looks more like Jesus every day.

Judicial Watch got the following from the FDA with another round of Freedom of Information requests:

The adverse reactions include 16 new deaths (including four suicides) between May 2009 and September 2010. The FDA also produced 789 “serious” reports, with 213 cases resulting in permanent disability and 25 resulting in a diagnosis of Guillain Barre Syndrome.

Adverse report excerpts include:

  • A nineteen year old girl with no medical history except occasional cases bronchitis received Gardasil and in 53 days, had “Headache, Nausea, dizziness, chilling, tiredness, shortness of breath, complained of chest plain, severe cramps.” She experienced an Acute Cardiac Arrhythmia. Attempts to resuscitate her resulted in a sternal fracture, but were unsuccessful and the patient died. — V. 356938
  • A thirteen year old girl was vaccinated on July 17th, 2009. Ten days later, she developed a fever and was treated. However, “the patient did not recover and was admitted to the hospital on [August 8th]…She developed dyspnoea and went into a coma…she expired [that day] at around 9:00 pm. The cause of death was determined as ‘death due to viral fever.’ … This event occurred after 23 days of receiving first dose of Gardasil. — V. 380081
  • Thirteen days after vaccination, a ten year old girl developed “progressive loss of strength in lower and upper extremities almost totally…Nerve conduction studies [showed Guillain Barre Syndrome].” Case was “considered to be immediately life-threatening.” — V. 339375

The FDA has approved Gardasil for girls and boys 9 – 26 years old.

The Center for Disease Control continues to recommend the vaccination.

My favorite, recommendation, though, comes from Merck who manufactures Gardasil and tried to make it mandatory, emphasis added:

Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients of GARDASIL, including those severely allergic to yeast, should not receive the vaccine. GARDASIL is not for women who are pregnant.

The side effects include pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting. Fainting can happen after getting GARDASIL. Sometimes people who faint can fall and hurt themselves. For this reason, your health care professional may ask you to sit or lie down for 15 minutes after you get GARDASIL. Some people who faint might shake or become stiff. This may require evaluation or treatment by your health care professional.

Only a doctor or health care professional can decide if GARDASIL is right for you or your child.

This is because we all know that parents are idiots and should not be allowed to make decisions that affect the health of the state’s their children.

How date we question Obama’s right to assassinate American citizens?

How dare we suggest that evidence of wrong-doing and a trial might be required?

How dare the courts try to intervene?

The Obama Administration is fighting tooth and nail to kill a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of New Mexico cleric Anwar Awlaki, arguing that even though Awlaki isn’t charged with any crimes it “strains credulity” to argue that the US government needs to present evidence before assassinating the US citizen.

In fact the papers filed by the Justice Department attempting to quash the case argue that the court system should have absolutely no oversight over the administration’s sudden, bizarre claim that it can assassinate any American citizen it wants on the basis of nation security, arguing that such issues are “for the executive branch of the government to decide rather than the courts.”

Read the rest here, if you can stomach it.

The kitties three are now a full year old.  In between bouts of racing around the house like wild pigs, they can often be found near the one sunny window they can get to.  Like this:

Peanut & Princessa

and this:

Pumpkin & Peanut

But tonight we discovered why they also like this particular place:

Princessa

We watched them take turns sitting on the stove, staring up at the range hood.  My hubby took the filters out and had a look around, but didn’t see anything, so we retreated to the computer room.  A while later, I heard a low, serious growl coming from the living room.  When I got there, Peanut was warning his sister Princessa to keep away from his mouse, so I will share the GaGa methods of removing mouses from cats that want to keep them.

  • Step 1.  Get a small bucket or bowl and a piece of thin but sturdy cardboard.
  • Step 2.  Follow the cat in possession of the mouse, until said cat releases said mouse.
  • Step 3.  Quickly put the bucket upside down over the mouse.
  • Step 4.  Slide the cardboard under, flip the whole thing over … and give it to your hubby to dispose of as he sees fit.

Alternate method if the cat refuses to let go of the mouse:

  • Step 1.  Put on shoes, and warm clothing if it’s cold outside.
  • Step 2.  Pick up the cat, complete with mouse.
  • Step 3.  Take cat and mouse outdoors and set them on the ground.
  • Step 4.  Stand over same until cat releases mouse.  This part can take a while.
  • Step 5.  Quickly, before he can grab the mouse again, pick up cat and return it to the house, saying, “Good kitty, good kitty.”

Tonight we could use the first method, although with this being their first mouse and all, it took us a while to get with the program.  In the meantime, Peanut kept letting the mouse go so he could chase it again.  By God’s grace, it didn’t find a good hiding place before my hubby returned with the bucket.  It was a hoppy little thing, though we did manage to remove it.

I know, I know.  We stole their birthday present.  But I gave them all lots of kitty treats afterward, and that will just have to do.

And I am extremely grateful that this happened while we were still awake.  I’m sure I would not appreciate a new furry kitty toy in bed with us.
