Since I am at home I have a chance to do a lot more reading and listening than I have done in a while. I am so sickened over the state of affairs in our country right now. Our new president is digging the hole deeper that our democratic congress has gotten us into- no it was NOT Bush who did this.
Talk of bailing out foreclosed homes by the governmnent??? Paying a mortgage can be tough at times but it is not up to the government (meaning us who pay taxes) to bail everyone else out. And now for those who have saved and made deposits into the bank may not be covered by FDIC insurance! As I sit and watch our retirement slide into non-existance I try to save more in the bank but now I wonder about that.....
Don't get me started on unions- another hot button of mine. They had a time and place but that time has come and gone. And now an attack on freedom of speach. All I can say is Obama must feel he has something to fear from Rush Limbaugh if he is so busy using his and other socialist energies to attack him. I keep asking myself what if it was Bush who was saying and doing these things? He would be struck immediately. He could not make a mispronunciation without being attacked- Obama has made plenty of them and I have never heard our media attack him or even mention is foibles once.
So easy to get caught up in all of this and then so easy to turn the TV off, ignoring what is happening and go about my life with business as usual. I am afraid that is what too many Americans are doing. Ignoring it until it is too late and the America we love will be gone. Wonder how long it will take people to wake up?
The word hope has had a lot of airplay since Obama's been around. Putting hope in this man is not cutting it. I will lean on Proverbs 3:5 and so many other promises and will put my hope and trust in the Lord with all my heart. Watching the current scene is a great reminder to me of the evil in man. I must keep reminding myself of the assurance that He is in control and I will pray that Americans can see the true changes we need to make and learn to trust in the real and only hope, our God. I wonder what our founding fathers would say about the mess we have made of this great nation. I wonder what we will say when this life is over and we meet our Creator face to face.
