Disrespecting the country

Posted: October 23, 2020 in Christian

A few years ago, Michelle Obama stated how she was ashamed of our country (while serving as First Lady) and she and President Obama went on to prove their disrespect by their actions, such as refusing to either stand for the pledge, or refusing to place their hands over their hearts, showing disrespect and disregard for the Marines attached to the White House, etc.

That wave of disrespect toward our country grew even more vitriolic and vicious after Trump was elected president. It seemed as if it were a competition to see who could show the most disrespect toward the 45th President of these United States between the media and the celebrities and even members of the electorate from both parties.

Michelle Obama said she was ashamed of her country…I am ashamed of those that openly chose to disrespect the office of the presidency, regardless who happens to be in the White House. I am ashamed of those that mock, and laugh at and openly disparage my country by disparaging the leadership of my country.

I didn’t like President Obama because I thought his policies hurt America, but I refused to disparage him because I respect the office of the President of the United States. If Biden is elected, I feel it would end up as a disaster for our country, economically as well as constitutionally…but if he is elected, he will be my president, because I chose to respect this great republic of ours and its leadership.

The book of Jude teaches that we are not to disrespect dignities and those in positions of power…but hey, they are trying to erase all semblances of Christianity from this country anyway, so what does it matter what God thinks about it, right?

I just saw a news clip where a black MSNBC host called the RNC convention a minstrel show, days after another black CNN host called a black US Senator an “uncle tom”.

Throughout this summer, the only people shouting racist slogans and slinging racist slurs are the blacks…I guess they feel they are immune to any retribution over anything they say…but they are the REAL RACIST in this country…and they get away with it. What would happen if a conservative white person called people “Uncle Toms” or decried the DNC convention as a “minstrel show” or called a black athlete a “bi**ch black boy? They would be instantly called out for it and the outcry would be fast and furious. Where is the public outcry when blacks say these things? Why are blacks given a pass when they wantonly sling racial epitaphs?

I’m sick of all the pandering to the racist and the violent criminal that are trying to destroy the fabric of America while the media cheers them own and the elected democratic leadership of these cities fiddle while they burn to the ground…unbelievable…

As a child, I recall reading a book about a future dystopian society that burned books to control the thoughts of their subjects…the book was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The premise of the book was taken from the Nazi book burning carried out by the German Student Union targeting books they thought subversive and anti-Nazi.

Today, in America we virtually have the same thing going on as Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms systematically burn digital books by banning and remove posts that give opposing viewpoint to the agenda put forth by the liberal establishment…

One recent example is when Donald Trump Jr tweeted a videos showing several well known doctors talking about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against Covid 19, Twitter pulled the tweet saying Trump was spreading misleading information regarding Covid 19 (I guess Twitter are the medical experts, and not the several doctors in the tweet that was pulled) and he was suspended from further tweets. Fast forward two months and CNN tweeted a story about a recent study showing the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against Covid 19. Why isn’t this tweet removed? It is because CNN is “an approved source”, and other that have dissenting opinions are censored.

Here is a quote from a leading surgeon and twenty-five year veteran of the medical field. “Hydroxychloroquine is a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It’s the most noncontroversial of medications that there is,” she said. “It’s been around for centuries and it’s been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years,” she continued. “In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it … it’s one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world.” this statement of hers, as well as others doctors who made similar statements about this drug that has shown to be effective against this virus last week was blocked and removed by Facebook, Twitter and Youtube with no explanation.

Censorship similar to this has been going on in our public universities (indoctrination camps, paid for by your tax dollars) for three decades now where Christian and conservative speakers have time after time, increasingly been denied an opportunity to provide a different viewpoint and the constitutionally provided first amendment has been trampled time and again (sometimes literally). The young adults exposed to this censorship have been indoctrinated that dissenting opinions are bad and preventing alternate ideas and opinions is perfectly fine in America, where free speech once roamed free, but is now being hunted to extinction There are many, many more examples all over the internet of this rabid censorship going on under our noses.

Welcome to the Socialistic States of America, comrade!

Patchwork America

Posted: July 12, 2020 in Christian

The great world experiment called the United States of America is like an immense Patchwork quilt made up of multitudes of different ethnicities, races, religions and experiences, sewn together to create a mighty woven web of strength. However it seems the media only desires to look for problems in the fabric and they do manage to find small areas of loose stitching within the fabric. When they do discover those areas, they happily zoom in on the defects to attempt to prove just how terribly worn and frayed the fabric is that holds this great country together, often without merit. If they actually allowed the viewers to see the larger picture, it would demonstrate that these small areas of problem threads do not really affect the the cohesiveness of all the fabric surrounding it as well as the strength of the whole quilt, but they do not want their viewers to concentrate on the strength of the cohesiveness of America, only its weaknesses.

My father used to quote the phrase “I cried because I had no shoes until I met the man who had no feet” to me to help teach me to appreciate what I have, while at the same time desiring to work for more. It worked for I have always tended to never lose sight that there are always those that have less than me and I thank the Lord daily for what He has blessed me with, and continues to do so.

There are so many people today that seem to endlessly complain about everything without stopping to realize how blessed they actually are, and this started me thinking about my parent’s generation. I began thinking about life in the early part of the twentieth century, as opposed to life since I have been circling the sun.

Think about this, if you were born in 1900, for the first 50-55 years of your life, if you lived in rural America, you had minimal, or no healthcare, no electricity or running water, the prospect of finding a job outside of a large city was poor and there was no social security fund for the aged to fall back on…life as we know it, really only became commonplace after 1955. These facts can be a little sobering, if we allow them to sink in, and we need to make sure we appreciate every day we live upon this earth, instead of whining about what we don’t have.
