A Curiosity

There is a question of small significance based on the Bible and prophecy. Just why is it that the US is not mentioned in the Bible. It does seem to many that the Bible has left out half the world. Some might even suggest it is one of the more important parts.

Many have asked the question. Some have suggested answers. Personally, I don’t know. I do consider it something of a curiosity, though I would never let such a thing cause any doubts in the accuracy of God’s word.

As near as I can figure, what happens in terms of prophecy in the western hemisphere, is of little significance. Currently, that seems highly unlikely.

However, it would not take but a few days for that to change.

  1. A natural disaster. California, the Mid-south and many other places in Mexico and South America have serious fault lines. Just lately I found out there are faults under New York too, though not currently active. From time to time, I have been reminded that Yellowstone sets a top a huge volcano capable of destroying most of this country and send ashes worldwide. Such a thing just might help fulfill prophecies. I don’t know. As I say. I just observe.
  2. It might be war or a few terrorists. China, Iran and a few other countries would like American history to end. The Dems, on the other hand, seem to be inviting terrorists over an open border. A few well placed nuclear weapons would destroy our nation. Just look what 3 well placed planes did. Many take our national security for granted. They like the advantages of living here but they are not willing to help pay for it.
  3. Finally, there is the possibility of destruction from within. Those who say the Republicans are destroying democracy are tearing our Constitution asunder. Without the 10 amendments to protect us, the US will crumble.

Maybe none of this will happen. I don’t know. If any of it does, I hope I don’t live to see it. On the other hand, the more I observe, the more I believe it will be the third. With the dems such as they are, the Lord will not need to send natural disasters or even an enemy to destroy the nation he sees going very much astray. We will do a really great job of destroying ourselves.

Good News

For those interested. I just found out that one of the thorns in Trump’s side has just been shot down. Come January, Liz from Wyoming will be looking for a new job. Invariable, she will find one in among the news establishment. She will be well rewarded for becoming a never Trumper. She might want to remember, though, all liars do get their just wages in the end.

Tis a shame we cannot arrange an immediate result. Unfortunately, we do need to wait for November to make it final. Then we have to wait till January to make it legal.

Either way, she got the message, though she is not likely to take the hint from her constituents.

How Many Libs to Screw in a Light Bulb?

One cannot claim I don’t believe in recycling. This is one of the most recycled jokes ever and a bad one at that. The answer is casual to the most obvious observer. Actually, that’s kind-of an old twist of words too, but I kinda like it. On the other hand, my wife is more than tired of it and reminds frequently.

At any rate, the obvious answer is zero. No self repecting lib would replace a light bulb. They love stumbling around in the dark. Those few who do like light, prefer paying someone else. It is below their dignity.

Speaking of light, the vast majority of libs deny the greatest Light of all. In John 8:12 Jesus proclaims to all, “I am the light of the world.” Instead of accepting the Light, they defiantly prefer stumbling around in the darkness.

Worse, they pretend to be of great vision and every chance they get, lead us into destruction.

The Biggest Fear of Our Forefathers

As they were froming the federal government, one fear drove them more than anything else. It is the reason for having 3 separate parts:legislative, executive and judicial. Each has its own powers and limits. That way, the hope was that no one person or group of people would exceed their authority.

In addition, they added 10 amendments. If you study them carefully, you’ll see that, while each has its purpose, collectively they have 1 purpose, to protect the individuals from the government.

Now, why did they feel the need for protection from our government. It’s because they were afraid of the tyranny of the majority.

Without the bill of rights, the majority could take control of the government. Then, ironically it could be ruled by a small minority. If you doubt the fear to be valid, look at what we have now, a one party rule.

The hope of the forefathers was that a free press would keep them in check. On the contrary, they are doing all they can to assist the overthrow of our constitution.

Now the Bill of Rights is on the verge of being trodden under the feet of socialists. They hate freedom of religion and they are destroying our rights to have our say. They want to remove our right to defend ourselves. I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture.

Still, I must add one more remark i heard lately. It would seem that the dems interpret the 10th amendment as reserving all powers not specified in the Constitution to the democrat party.

Maybe it’s a joke, but I am sure they would accept said power without a second thought.

To be sure, we just might be realizing the tyranny of the majority within the decade. It was the primary fear of the framers of our Constitution and today, the threat stands before us and it isn’t even well hidden. What a legacy to leave for our children, especially considering the freedom we inherited.

It’s the Saltwater!

For many years, I’ve wondered why almost all the people in states with coastlines seem to have lost their abilities to reason. California and New York, the states with the most coastline are the states are also the states with the least people with good reason.

Then, I considered Chicago. OK. They have no saltwater but they do have a coastline. I guess I need to modify my theory, all coastlines.

Wait a minute! Maybe Florida has more saltwater coastline than any other state.

The question does, however comes to mind. Is it the coasts that warp the minds or does the water simply attract those who lack reasonable reasoning.

There seems to be no doubt. You look in any of the states with coasts and the problem is always worse the closer they are to the water. Consider Long Island and San Francisco. They are almost surrounded by water.

Maybe we need to quickly put some kind of barrier arround Florida before they become the liberal capitol of world.

The Tragedy of Ignorance, Part I

Ever made a decision and then later say, “I wished I knew that?” I have. Difficult though it is to believe, I’ve actually done it more than once. Don’t let it get out, but it’s happened to me more times than I can remember.

A few times the result is permanent and I am still paying the price. In some cases it’s physical; in other situations, it’s emotional.

So much, I’d like to forewarn others. The problem is, no matter some will not pay attention. To be sure, I must plead guilty to ignoring the wisdom imparted to me.

When I was young, I was admonished to learn from my mistakes. Certainly, that is a good thing. We certainly don’t want to smash the same with the same hammer twice, let alone 3 or 4 times.

However, as wise as that may be, isn’t it better to learn from the mistakes of others. That is to say, when we see the other guy whack his thumb, maybe we should take care not to smack ours.

Yet we have a nation full of those who see others become addicted to drugs, they still think they will be able to maintain control over it. Then, a while later, they become the example that still others ignore.

Then, of course, the one thing said is “If I only knew.”

It is the tragedy of ignorance. Moreover it’s willful and repetitive. I used the example of drug addiction, but it happens in a hundred other ways as well.

Not only that, but it is also practiced by society. Let’s face it. How many today are saying, “If I only knew, I’d have never voted for Joe.” Perhaps one of those was a very intelligent man, Elon Musk. At least he has repented but it is a little late. Hopefully, when it comes time to vote, our society will have learned from the mistake.

Then again, am I asking too much?

If it Were Only True

There is a lie being spread, of course by the party of liars, that the overturn of Roe v Wade would make abortion instantly illegal.

I wish it were so but it is not. It simply puts the matter back in in the hands of the legislators, where it belonged in the first place. There is, naturally, a reason those in favor of the death of babies fear the legislators. In spite of the claim that one and are in favor of abortion, they do realize that the vast majority are not in favor of it as a form of birth control or gender selection.

Moreover, many states just might come up with some real logical restrictions. For instance:

  1. Time restrictions, as only in the first trimester.
  2. Safety restrictions. Today there are virtually no requirements for clinics. There are no follow-up requirements. In some cases, parents only find out about a daughter’s abortion after complications.
  3. Maybe a week or so delay should be in order. It is an important decision that will likely change things forever. It is not like taking the wrong exit from the interstate.
  4. A true conversation should take place with the one having the abortion. She should be well aware of possible complications and possibly life long problems.
  5. Some say a sonogram should be reqired. Is it so wrong to require the patient to realize just what she is about to take part in.
  6. Would it be so bad to require at least one parent’s permission or at least notice. First, post op problems can occur. Second, all other medicines and procedures require patient’s consent.
  7. Finally, the abotionists should be subject to malpractice lawsuits as any other doctor.

Currently, none of the above requirements are in effect. Perhaps, maybe, just possibly, some good can come out of this, even though the killing will likely continue.

Maybe parents will not be blind sided by a botched abortion. Is that so horrible?

Far Right?

One should not lump those who follow President Trump in with the “Far” right. To put 70 million people in the category of the fringe elements is incongruous. Technically, 70 million people cannot be on the fringe by definition. For if the movement contains 70 million, it is not a fringe but a major sector, that is at least nearly as many as those who voted for Joe. (As a note, as I said before, he does not deserve to be called president. He is a liar, a killer and mostly, a puppet. See prior posts.)

Moreover, let me remind one and all, that Hitler, who is considered by many as extreme right was really a socialist. In German, the word socialist is in the acronym NAZI. Trump was neither far right nor a NAZI. The NAZIs hated the truth and burned books. Trump was indeed the victim of such treatment. Anyone who spoke well of him, anyone who suggested that the election was improper gets immediately canceled. That is the way of the socialists, rather communist or NAZI. It is the way of those who would be royalty.

Let me post this reminder, rather a fraudulent election or not, there were irregularities and there were laws that were broken. It is not wrong to point this out. Indeed, it is wrong to ignore them as the FOCs and RINOs did.

Just Something About Tantrums

You ever been out in public and see a toddler yelling, kicking and flailing his arms wildly… in other words throwing a tantrum. Though I have no memory of it, I likely threw my share of them. It’s natural for a child. They must be taught to behave themselves or the parent will have real problems as he gets older.

Normally, I keep myself out of the business of other states and certainly other nations.

However, in this case I must record my observations. The Canadian truckers start a demonstration and the PM decided to throw an outright tantrum.

Mind you, I am not trying to tell them who should run their country, especially considering who is running ours. I mean it is their choice. If they want a toddler for a leader, that’s their choice. It’s just an observation. Apparently his parents never taught him that it makes him and those who voted for him look childish.
