First Thoughts For The New Decade

1. ”We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar’s. But under no circumstances will we render to Ceaser what is God’s” In the same manner, I will not render to the progressives those things that are the foundations of our nation.

2. Christianity is under attack by Hollywood, the media and the progressives, as well as, among others, political correctness. Why do they pick on Christianity and Judaism? Is it because Judaism and Christianity represent the Lord of the universe, the creator of the world, and the Savior of our souls? Since we know whom the one true and living God is, we can understand why the opposition forces want His voice silenced. I have read the Bible and guess who wins? If those who would, could silence the body of Christ, they can have their way for a season, which they will, after the rapture of the church. By the way, the value of a Jewish man has finally been established. Hammas has determined that one Jewish man is worth 1,000 Palestinians. That is the price Hammas has set for the release of one Jewish soldier.

3. Would you trust mankind, a relatively poor source, to supply your needs, or wouldn’t it be better to trust the infinite God of the universe with whom you have no choice but to trust with your eternal soul? “Honor the Lord with your possessions (substance), and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.” “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over shall men give unto your bosom.”

Why do you let the wicked prosper? This was one of the questions that King David had for God. Our nation has, over the years, had its share of the wicked. Never have I contended that we were perfect. Robber barons, political deviants, power hungry politicians and various unsundry and unsavory moneygrubbers have come and gone. We have however, developed into the greatest nation in the history of the earth. We have fed more people, liberated more people, and helped more people than any other nation in the history of the world. “The rains fall on the just as well as the unjust.” In other words, into every life a little rain must fall. Perhaps that which is not the best sometimes makes us appreciate that which is better. You sometimes have to walk through the valley to appreciate the mountaintop.

“We never learn to live until we learn to forgive. We never learn to forgive until we learn how greatly we have been forgiven”. “Freely ye have received, freely give.”

4. With 65% of the people against the healthcare redistribution of wealth plan and 30% in favor, we should vote in the same percentages. Since a political win of 60% percent is considered a landslide, a defeat of 65% for all those who vote for it would send a real message to Washington. Since the EPA has decided to be at the forefront of the Global warming scam, a new congress could defund the EPA. Taxes need to be lowered, not raised. There are several ways of doing this. Get our elected officials to get real and realize that they work for us. Tax the 50 percent of the population that don’t pay taxes which would give them ownership and appreciation of the tax system. Thomas Jefferson said that if the population ever finds that they can vote themselves what they want, all would be lost. The Wilson administration was the beginning of progressivism in the United States. That is when they first began coming out of the closet. It brought us such wonderful things as the progressive income tax, the Fed, incarceration without trial if you disagreed with them and the beginnings of what turned into the United Nations. The Wilson administration did more damage to our country than any other administration. This is the same Wilson administration in which his wife essentially ran the country and made the decisions when for many months President Wilson was incapacitated by a stroke.

5. The recent sixty to forty votes in the senate were touted to be a victory for healthcare. The Democrat party was not able to obtain any Republican votes, and had to bribe several of its own members to get the 60 votes necessary. These bribes were accomplished with our tax dollars. Isn’t it nice to know that our employees are so confident in their job security that they will vote for things we don’t want and even spend more of our hard earned tax dollars to have their way? Does the word corruption come to mind?

6. Common decency is also under attack. “In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex nude model, tea bagging supporter of violence against women and politicians with whom he disagrees.” Scott Brown was running as a republican in the senatorial race in Massachusetts. Most of you won’t know that “tea bagging” is a nasty sexual practice. It seems that progressives know what it means while most decent people have never heard of the practice. The progressives, like Genie Gorafelo and Keith Oberman, use this phrase to refer to the tea party gatherings around the nation demonstrating against what is happening to our country. A personal attack like this is not unusual for the progressives. “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance- baffle them with Bullshit” is a phrase I heard many times in my years as a salesman. Now I realize that it was of progressive origin. I, on the other hand, always sell by the “KISS” method, which means to Keep It Simple Stupid. I don’t lie, I am always myself, I don’t make promises that I don’t intend to keep and follow up on everything that I say I will. Wouldn’t it be nice if the media and the politicians would do the same?
