Even worser than last year, it appears that people (except those crazies with their mis-matched, gaudy awful light setups who use Christmas more as another occasion to get drunk) just aren’t up for Christmas. It seems that the occasion has been continually subdued from one year to the next. Economy bad? Job market scarce? Too high priced healthcare? Worried about showing Christian? Scared to be in crowds?
I went to watch the grandbabies in the Nutcracker on Saturday and it was the best one yet. Went to Wal-Mart and Lowes and both were jammin. The Mall is slammed. Costco is just a joke. To me, it appears that people aren’t afraid of being out……well some anyway. I guess that just maybe people are either deepressed or might not want to “stick out” in these current times. Can’t really say what it is but it sure isn’t the way it use to be. Maybe it will be better next year cause this isn’t Christmas as I am used to.
We had to wait for the FBI and how many days before someone spoke up and said the massacre in San Bernadino was an act of terrorism, but it still has not been told that it was an act of ISLAMIC terrorism. Now it only took hours before the nutcase in Oregon was listed as a terrorist. Lynch, the U.S. AG that Congress stated was a good choice and fair, is now going to prosecute any Americans who use their First Amendment rights to speak Anyang about Muslims. First Obama’s ears were protected, then it was the X-panics, and now it is Muslims, but NOT OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS! Then you have Obama asking why we can’t pass an act or law that states that your Second Amendment rights are null and void if you are on the no-fly list. A secret list that no one has access to. 700,000 strong. Many from DHS are listed there. The TSA, part of DHS, fail in their screening detections 95% of the time. The two shooters (Muslims) in San Bernadino weren’t on the no-fly list but they want to take YOUR Second Amendment right away on a whim.
Why is this administration and, specifically, this president, so pro Islam? This guy sat in Wright’s hate meetings because it was politically expedient at the time to look Christian. He was brought up Muslim and that’s a fact. Did he convert? I don’t think so. He could easily have been sitting listening to another hate monger called Farrakan. I heard something on Rush today that I found intriguing and that is: the government position changed and in 2014 ISIS was changed as the official designation for these murderous scumbag Muslim filth to ISIL. That would be the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. The Levant includes Israel, which Islam does not recognize and the true state owners are the Palestinians. Imagine that. I believe with the sit-on-the-hands strategy of the president that we know by now what the end game is here: put America in the dirt and raise up the backwards Neanderthals of Islam.
What really tops the cake was receiving my OPM notification today. Of course it was nobody’s fault but just bad luck. Good part is that this idiot in the WH is not ever getting my guns. I need protection from somewhere and I never let myself or others down.
Something has been nagging at me today and I have decided to vent it now. It deals with charity. It is that time of the season to open our hearts (which should be open throughout the year) and give what we can to those in need. Many of us can no longer give as we wish because of economic circumstances and an economy bent on ruining the country for all. I just want you to give some thought to who and where you may want to contribute because there are those in need and those who game.
I pay attention to what happens around me. I very close attention to people: their mannerisms, their moods, their words, and how they present themselves in their lives as viewed by others. I have family members needing assistance where they can’t get it from anywhere else or just feel ashamed doing so. My son-in-law just came up with a condition where he can barely walk without getting winded. The VA won’t give him disability because that has to be decided by the family doctor. The family doctor won’t say he is disabled because that is the job of the VA. His work won’t fire him for not showing up because the employer doesn’t want to pay workman’s comp. it also doesn’t allow him to get unemployment. In the meantime, his wife applies for 10 jobs or more a week and can’t even get work at the local Wal-Mart or McDonalds. No income anywhere and they and their kids need to eat and have a roof over their heads. Meanwhile, illegals can just go to the hospital like it is a private physician’s office and get the medical they need. VA patients die waiting for appointments but illegals get whatever they want.
I know quite a few illegals through work. They laugh about having 2 jobs, leaving communally and sending money back home. Many are paid under the table. They talk about getting drunk and chasing women while they stand their smoking cigarettes. When asked how they can survive they just say that charities give them what they want ( not what they need). They go to churches and outreach centers and get food from those food stores. Clothing the same way. Kids go to school free and are assisted with lunches. In the meantime, American families are starving and needing but their is limited supplies of charities where they can receive. Usually there are always long lines and most of the people that are already there, waiting, are immigrants (yes, too many of whom are illegal).
I have witnessed on numerous occasions, while shopping at my neighborhood grocery store, immigrants, who have no command of the English language, buying food with food stamps (or a special credit type card now). The items that don’t fit on the list like spirits, cigarettes, and other items, well, they just pull out a wad of cash and pay outright. These people are not dressed shabbily and are wearing jewelry, much of which is not costume. How are they allowed to do this? Let me ask this question instead. If you come here illegally, why has the government let you in, without means of support, and house you in hotel rooms? Where does the food come from? Where do the clothes come from? When they place you somewhere, how do they survive from that point on? And now we are talking about bringing in refugees from another culture and world. Same questions: how will they survive on their own?
Whose fault is this mess? It goes anywhere from the lazy people who put themselves into the predicament to our government. You see, the government IS charity (usually called entitlements but also needless, wasteful and illegal spending). You and I pay for this. Those Americans, who should have priority over all others, who are truly desperately in need, can’t be helped sometimes because of limited resources and competition with those who don’t deserve nor shouldn’t get assistance. It is more than a shame it is a disgrace. Much assistance comes from churches and other organizations that receive contributions. I used to be one of those contributors but now I am offended by them because of how they exacerbate the problem.
Let me tell you a little secret. We are all God’s children. Christians are directed to help the poor and those in need. Christians aren’t rich. There are too many people in the world that have “needs”. Our government already allows the flow of money to go to these other nations with “needs”. When you give charity, it may make you feel good but it won’t get you any closer to Heaven. You just can’t buy your way in and that is a fact. So now those that have some means and wish to contribute must pick and choose because of limited funds. That would be me. I choose family first, and if I have any left over “disposable” funds, I am going to make sure it goes to Americans and those who really have a need. I will not give to the churches anymore and if I have to sponsor a family directly (where I can see who they are and what their needs are) then that is exactly what I will do. Too many people in Appalachia that could use my help. I was born and raised in the South and I have seen poor and lived it myself. You still have gamers here too but you also have good people that are proud and wish to do for themselves. Sometimes they just can’t and need some help. Not cellphones or IPads or jewelry but food, shoes, coats and fix the leaks in the roof over their heads, if they have a roof over their head.
I am not here to tell you what to do or how to do it. You do charity as is directed from your heart. If you are liberal, you don’t have a heart so you expect the government to do your charity for you. We already understand that. I am just saying that it is time to think about who really is in need and direct your gifts accordingly. You won’t go to Heaven for it but you might feel better. Most important, those who receive will have their prayers answered and that is the greatest gift of all
You see it on government buildings, schools, even the local Roy Rogers. Well you can read this I refer you to CRS-10, which pretty much states it is for certain Americans or foreign dignitaries. Or you can
read this, which pretty much clarifies proper code and etiquette. I don’t recall lowering the flag for the Christians that have been slaughtered on masse by ISIS. How about the Ukranian airliner that was shot down? Shoot, I don’t even feel like listing the events were no flag was lowered to half staff. How many can you think of in the last year? The last 3 years? 7?
Is this just more humiliation (remember, good intentions DO NOT TRUMP CODE OR LAW) from this administration? You have a demented, bumbling idiot as President and he surrounds himself with useless, know nothings that can’t match their socks in the morning, much less know law and give sound advice. The more this moron does to the country, the deeper he digs his grave. His lasting legacy will be that he is the most incompetent President who taught Constitutional law but, evidently, was incapable of understanding it. If he ever did teach it, it was probably to the incompetents he has surrounded himself with.
I think what happened in France is tragic. The French brought that upon their own heads by allowing such a massive influx of Muslims and then allowing them to set up enclaves where they were not forced into assimilation. Two times may be the charm but we’ll see. Now this idiot wants to create a similar scenario in my country which will produce the same tragic results. Like they say, “once a Muslim, always a Muslim” and Obama constantly shows he is a Muslim. Will he fly the flag at half staff for a massacre in Sterling? I would not think so. Our flag is not a yo-yo and needs to fly high and proud. It appears we need to kick out the current occupant in the White House to be able to see that happen and I do mean before his term is up.
Bugs Bunny jokes aside, we are at war. The progs do not want to admit it. The progs hate Christians, and the Islamists hate Christians, therefore, the progs love the Islamists.
But the reality is that the Islamists would rather kill progs than Christians. The progs are just too dumb to see it.
Aside from the problem of just getting progs to agree that we are at war, we have the problem that this is a totally new kind of war. Our allowing these barbarians into our countries has made us vulnerable to them. There are no uniformed armies to defeat. There is no leader whom we can get to capitulate on behalf of the masses he rules.
We must start to think beyond our comfort zone. Muslims who are not now citizen should have their visas revoked immediately, and they should be sent home. No more should be allowed in. The so-called “refugees” should be sent to some Indonesian islands. It’s a Muslim country, there is plenty of land, and they can learn to fish.
