DEAR GOD: THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US THE WAY TO FOLLOW

25 02 2012

I don’t know if anyone else pays much attention to the details of politics.  But I do.  Guess it was handed down to me by my father as he was always very interested in politics.

But to get to my point for the day, do you remember the debates between President George H.W. Bush and Clinton?  I do.  Prior to this time, the Democrats had mastered the issue of Gridlock.  They had locked up the Congress so that President Bush could not get any of his agenda through to the people.  No matter what the issue was, Bush was stopped.  He could not manage to get any of his ideas nor his bills nor his programs through Congress.  So he spent the last years in office trying to get some of his ideas passed through Congress and was stopped on every front.  The only thing that went through was an increase in taxes.  And that made him look stupid because he had said – No New Taxes.  But he couldn’t get any cuts through, so he was stuck with the taxes. Then the media set out to make him look like an idiot. No matter what he said or did, they slanted the stories to make him look stupid.

And then, those wonderful debates. I remember watching one of them for sure.  The stage hands brought out a high stool for George Bush to sit on and one for Clinton.  Both men are tall and the stools were going to work fine for them.  Then Clinton sat down and everything was just fine with his stool.  But when President Bush sat down on his stool, it wobbled quite a lot.  The stage hands came out again and tried to fix the wobble.  But you know what?  Couldn’t be done.  Wonder why. And so once again, he was made to look like a fool while he tried to balance himself on that wobbly stool and answer the questions he was asked.  Try that for yourself sometime.  But again, no one in the country seemed to even notice that.  And the media never even mentioned it.  Isn’t that strange though.  I was sitting in my living room watching the debate and I saw it all.  But I must have been the only person to notice that small issue.

Also, did you know why the election was called and over before California ever got to vote?  It was because Clinton  and his colleagues figured out that if they got the right number of electoral votes from the states that voted first, he would win before the other states even got to the polls.  So they set out to do just that.  No one could really understand why Clinton spent so much time campaigning in the northeast, speaking to the factory workers and generally making himself known over and over again.  The media never mentioned the reason for this.   It was almost like the western part of the United States wasn’t even important – and you know what?  It wasn’t.  Because Clinton  and his friends had figured out how to do this legally but just a little  bit shady.  That was their usual format anyway.  And they did a good job of it.  But they were the first ones over all these many years since the foundation of the United States of America to take that road and be masters of a shady election.   Isn’t that a real shame, though.  But it happened and we all watched while it  happened.

Again, for some reason, none of the shady, slight of hand things were ever reported by the media.  But the Democrats knew what they were doing.  And they won again and again with their shady deals.  Watch out this year.  There will be even more of those shady deals.  Be careful with your vote and make sure it counts to elect people who are not shady nor underhanded in their dealings whether it be on the local, state or national level.

God has shown us the way to walk in order to follow Him.  Be careful when you walk this year.  Make sure you stay on that Right Path.

VOTER IDENTIFICATION

17 01 2012

I have been hearing the objections to Voter Identification at the polls.  This is probably the most ridiculous of them all so far.  People are complaining that this is discriminatory.  How can Voter Identification possibly be discriminatory.  Everyone is asked to do the exact same thing.  In my area, we have to show our Driver’s License and the picture on the Driver’s License should be the same person who is showing the Identification.    Now, this makes perfect sense to me.  I cannot possibly see where any of that would be discriminatory.  I never even thought twice about showing my Driver’s License.

In a children’s Sunday School song,  all the children are described as ‘Red, Yellow, Black and White’.   Same with the Voter Identification.

The red person is expected to show identification, the yellow person is supposed to show identification, the black person is supposed to show identification and the white person is supposed to show identification.  Why, I bet even the purple people eater at the back of the line is supposed to show his identification.

So what could possibly be discriminatory about any of this.  No reason to complain that I can see.  Unless someone was planning to vote illegally, there is nothing  to worry about at all.

Pay attention this year.  We need to make some drastic changes.   In a hurry.  Hooray!





9/11 AND GOD

11 09 2011

I noticed this past week that all the news  carried the story that the New York Remembrance of 9/11 would not allow clergy to pray during the service.  I, like many others in this country, was appalled at that.  But then, there was really nothing we could do about it anyway.

And we can all say all those remarks that we have heard a million times about how this country was founded on Christian principles and how we all should pray at a time like this.  But then, like I said, we couldn’t do anything about this anyway.  But we still have our own thoughts.

But then, this morning I was watching the service in New York and I, like many others, was very impressed with the marching Scottish band, and the sound of the drum.  And then, the young choir that sang the Star Spangled Banner the way it should be sung.  That was wonderful!  And then, the unfurling of the flag that had been at the World Trade Center.  All of that was just marvelous.  I was very impressed with the whole service.  And that young man who talked about his father not being there when he graduated from high school and how he had helped his younger brother to learn all those things his father would have taught him.  That was a truly grand speech.

But then former President George  Bush stepped up to the microphone.  And he read from a letter by President Abraham Lincoln that told of a death in the Civil War and how he was writing to comfort the survivors of the lost one.  In that letter, President George Bush quoted that Abraham Lincoln PRAYED TO GOD  that the survivor would indeed be comforted.     Thank you, George Bush.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  By doing this, George Bush injected GOD right where he should have been all along, right in the middle of that service honoring all the dead from the 9/11 World Trade Center Memorial.  What a marvelous thing he did for all of us since we couldn’t  do anything about it anyway.

And Thank You, Dear God, for all the things you have done for all those survivors.
