Little Common Sense

There is little-to-no common sense in the world, by and large, anymore.  The US government makes and passes laws that people can’t comply with because industry is told they must use a particular additive in all gasoline or pay a heavy fine. Because the additive does not exist and no one knows how to create it, the industry must pay the fines and go bankrupt. Who passes a law knowing it is physically impossible to obey? Who wants particular companies or industries to go bankrupt and need a government bailout? Makes you wonder, right?

Washington has no sense at all. We have a man acting as President when we have proof that he is not a citizen of America. What are our Congress and Senators doing about it? Nothing. Obamacare can’t be implemented because it costs too much. Obama doesn’t care. He just wants to destroy what is working and turn it into a situation where millions will die.

There is no common sense in the world. People are stealing, knowing they will be caught eventually. Greed has taken hold like a Pin worm in the intestines. Greed is blinding men and women to the truth, which is, all sin must be punished. Men are cheating on their wives and children, caring not that the affair can destroy the family and deeply hurt the children.

No one appears to care about the greater good of the earth. There are industries polluting the water, food supply and the land. No one is responsible, it seems. Corruption in the school systems, corruption in police departments, lies and hidden truths in every relationship.

Now, there are teachers and principals cheating on mandatory tests so they can earn bonuses for their schools and themselves. The children were left to sink or swim on their own. Hundreds of children from that school system can’t read and write because greed got in the way of their education.

People have becomes so entangled with the things of this world and greed is eating them like a cancer. They can’t see how they are destroying themselves and the planet we live on. Americans appear to be asleep, little realizing what Obama is doing to the freedoms we once had.

No one thinks about how his or her actions affect the future. There is nothing done that does not have a consequence. God doesn’t even have to punish us, we are doing a good job of it ourselves.

Where is the common sense? My mother would tell me as I was growing up, “You have to have common sense. Nothing you will learn from a book will help you in life if you don’t know how to use the knowledge.” News articles point out the fact that no one in charge has or is using common sense. This is scarier than a basket of snakes. Or, am I talking about the same thing?

Watch, listen and always read the label. You will find that common sense has disappeared. Lord help us all.

Obama, God and the Truth

18 Jan 2013
By Matt Patterson (columnist – Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job? Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard – because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.

Why has Obama slithered through the political scene without being called out for the liar and thief that he is? Because God told Isaiah in a vision, “And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes, lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.”

Isaiah asked God how long before this happened. God answered, “Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.”

All those who have rejected Christ will be blinded to the truth and deaf to anyone who tries to speak the truth to them. It is right in front of their faces and they can not see it. They hear Obama’s lies, but to them, it is the truth. God does not want those who have rejected Christ to see or hear, lest they repent and God has to forgive their sins. There is no forgiveness for those who have blasphemed the name of Christ.

There is huge evidence that Obama is a false President. No one with authority will act against him. A few have postured, attempting to appease their constituents. Nothing will be done about it because God is allowing the end time game plan to play out.

These are frustrating times for Christians. We hurt when we see so many people about to go over the cliff into eternal damnation. Witness to all who will listen. Then pray the end comes quickly and does not linger. Amen.

No budget, no pay


Georgia’s US Congressman Tom Graves posted on Facebook today the following:
 
“I voted for the “No Budget, No Pay Act,” which passed the House today and would withhold the salaries of members of Congress if their respective chamber does not pass a budget by April 15, 2013.

I am committed to balancing the budget and forcing the government to operate within its means. We cannot allow Washington to continue dragging down our economy and sidelining jobs that our communities need.

The first step in that process is forcing the Senate to follow the law and pass a budget, which they have failed to do for almost four years. In the House, we will again put forward a bold vision for the country, which will include tax, spending and entitlement reform. Our goal is to balance the budget in ten years.

If the Senate again fails to pass a budget, they will have their pay withheld. No budget, no pay. The American people expect and deserve that kind of accountability.”

Congressman Graves spoke for the American people today. Our government is elected by ‘We the people’ and are expected to help run this country according to the wishes of ‘We the people’. If more members of Congress and the Senate would break the hold that greed has upon them, they could see the destruction they are reeking upon this once mighty nation. To where will they all flee if America comes tumbling down?

Jehovah God told us in His holy word that greed would destroy the earth. We see that evidence all around us in these last days. Even men and women who promised to do the right thing if elected are taking money from lobbyists, allowing their greed to destroy them and all of America. In the end, all the money ever minted or printed since time began will not be enough to sustain them and their families. Let us pray that Congress will hold the Senate to the laws it has passed.

The gun debate


Since the massacre of 20 school children in Newtown, Connecticut, cold-blooded murder of six teachers and the murder of the killer’s mother, the nation has been in an uproar over gun-rights. The US constitution tells us that every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms in the Bill of Rights, Second Amendment. Why do you suppose this was written into the fabric of our nation?

There has been controversy and debate, off and on, throughout the history of the United States about the ‘right to keep and bear arms’. Some people say that hunting rifles are okay, but assault rifles should be banned. I don’t like the idea of assault rifles myself. However, someone pointed out this fact: If private citizens are not allowed to own assault rifles, what happens when the government begins to take away our other rights, one by one? How will we protect ourselves and our families? Is this even something that could possibly happen?

This nation was formed for and by oppressed people who left England, Scotland, Ireland, Poland, China, Russia and nearly every nation on earth. Our ancestors began a new nation, free from tyranny, oppression, dictatorship and abject poverty. We built this nation (not Obama) after a revolution with the Mother Country, England. It is ignorance and stupidity of the worst kind to believe that it could not happen again, the need to rebel and throw off oppression.

If all the guns were confiscated from every citizen of this country, what would protect us from a government that could just as quickly turn against us as Hitler did upon his people? As long as the citizens own guns, there will be a deterrent to communism.

What about innocent children and adults that are murdered by these guns every day? First point: Innocent children and adults have always been victims of lunatics. There have always been murders in this country. It is a sad fact of life. People have committed murder since recorded history. But wait! Guns haven’t been around since recorded history. Exactly.

Point two: These guns? Whose guns? My guns killed no one. I have owned guns for 40 years and they have murdered no one. They haven’t even killed people who needed killing and believe me, there have been a few. Responsible gun owners don’t murder people. They may kill you if you enter their homes uninvited or you rape their daughters, but that is expected, isn’t it? It should be. It won’t be if we allow the government to take away our guns.

If there is a food shortage and we need to hunt food, what will we use if we have no guns? Yes, I know there are ancient ways to trap animals for food. It is cruel to trap animals, maiming them, leaving them in pain to suffer until you check the trap again. A bullet to the head is quick and painless. Besides, will starving Americans wait patiently while hunters set traps and wait? Have you ever been in the drive-through line at Burger king on a Friday evening when most folks get off from work? They can’t wait patiently without blowing their horns every ten seconds for food that is chemically processed, formed, cooked, put together, throw into a brown bag and thrust out a small window at you in under three minutes from start to finish. Will they wait? Right.

We can choose to live in the fairy cloud of daydreams, what ifs and idealism, but ‘it ain’t happening for real’. Watch your news. Not just one-sided news, watch several different channels, including FOX Network News. See if you detect the creeping takeover by our present government. Yes, I mean Democrats by activism and Republicans by forfeit.

We don’t live in an ideal world. We will never live in an ideal world as long as man lives upon this earth. We may as well get past the idea of Utopia and learn how to live in a world of conflict, greed and power. I don’t know about you, but I feel better with the gun under my pillow than under Obama’s pillow. You can bet he has one.
