Ever watch the news and get questions?

Maybe you feel like you hate the news media. Dunno. Do you ever watch what is happening and it makes you feel like getting on your knees? It should. I've got about ten minutes here, but when I watch the news I start having lots of questions. How 'bout you? Yes, the more I watch it, the more disgusted I tend to feel inside and the more questions start forming in my head ..everytime. They say it's good to know what is going on around you, but how much do we need to know? I basically like to limit my time with even the fairest of all news channels. Hey, politics is not my passion and my opinions are maybe worth as much as the next guy’s but…

 

* In our U.S. two party system, don’t we need to simply replace one of the lame parties (or better yet, both) ..you know what I mean, with both sides—R and D—becoming more and more whacked as the years continue roll by (they’ve both unfortunately moved so far in the wrong direction ..farther than where the average citizen really is)? Personally I was raised in the home of Republicans, but I don’t feel any affection for either label at this point. Do you? Why (think about it)? Got a question for the R-side: Would copying the Left’s so called slobbering-hero-idolatry really be the best route for the GOP’s future salvation, or would it just be their sure path towards their permanent ruin?

 

* First they came for Cheerios. Next, I'm hearing about a tax-hike on a lot of dumb things. They are actually wanting to tax your soda now to pay for the so-called Obamacare. Q: What about the promise that there will be no raised taxes for Americans making under $250K per year?

* When will the hate abate? The former Vice President, Dick Cheney, has been called insane lately by many cruel drive-by-media people (what's new.. it happened just like with Sarah Palin, Limbaugh, and Miss California. Today's leaders and their followers actually laugh and say they wish these people were dead, and so many just love to rip apart people of influence that they really fear. Q: Is it right to hate any human.. Obama or Rush?), but our top political leader "O," who is thought to be far from insane (and I certainly would never call him that, 'cause he ain't) wanted for some time to release all those detainee photos, but he ends up doing what the former VP knew was best from the get go. The ex-VP spoke out against this for quite some time only to get beat up by the press and liberal loons. So after looking at the final results in this instance, who would be the smarter one from the start? I really don't know why that type of destructive thing should take so long to figure out. But now that O is on the same side as W on the detainee pix, will Code Pink and the ACLU scream "War Criminal!" at him too?

 

* How come there is so much stinkin’ corruption in Washington still and what can tax payers do about it that actually brings a viable and lasting change? In God we trust, so wouldn’t prayer to Him in Jesus Name be the best place to start?

 

* Do you agree with the First Lady and feel that we each should get “personal assistants" for our respective work? Why not? Q: Is there stimulus monies for our assistants?

 

First lady Michelle Obama called her "current life" in the White House "a very blessed situation, because I have what most families don't have—tons of support all around, not just my mother, but staff and administration. I have a chief of staff and a personal assistant, and everyone needs that." She feels that "Everyone should have a chief of staff and a set of personal assistants," Obama said with a chuckle as she talked about this before a crowd of business executives meeting during a "Corporate Voices for Working Families" conference at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington (Personally, I'm glad that she and her husband are blessed, and I pray they both use those blessings to help the people).*

 

I ran into a young lady here in Dallas recently who told me that she has put all her trust in our new President--she even said she waited to buy a new car until after he was firmly in office. Q: Is it wise at all for any of us to rest our hopes in any charming politician, in big government, in small government, in a certain party, in a church, in a denomination, in a spiritual group or in any mere human leader of any type ...other than in the very God who made you? A: No. 

The authoritative changeless Word of God says... 

“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes” (Ps. 118:8-9).

 

“But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, ‘You are my God.’" (Ps. 31:14).

 

Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness” (Ps. 37:3).

 

“Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him” (Ps. 2:12).

 

* Q: Isn’t it high time, no matter your personal stance on any of the issues, that we each get serious about praying for our leaders and for a spiritual awakening in this land? No political leader or party can fix or pay for the damage that has been done. Of course I don’t want you to stop there after we pray, but “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (Jam. 5:16).

 

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:2-4, emphasis mine).
