Yes, I still have "concerns" as you put it.

Pointing out to me what I have to do as a Christian is something I have stated before that I already do. I pray for Obama. Hitler was chosen as ruler of Germany and one of the most ruthless and moraly depraved human beings of all time. The Christians of that nation prayed for him. God answered. Hitler, though made the ruler, was defeated and committed suicide. In the mean time, and awful lot of people died terrible deaths.

The Liberal press's shrieking over every few or, as many as a few dozen deaths in Iraq, is nonsense compared to the 20,000,000 civilian deaths of a war that absolutely had to be fought at any cost. Throw in the 6,000,000 Jews and 10,000,000 Christains and priests and the perspective makes you shake your head in wonder at the "atrocities of Bush".

I do. I pray for Obama. I do not pray that he ends up as Hitler did. I pray that God opens his eyes and lets him see reality. That's going to be a cinch for God. For this nation, God may choose to open the dead and sleeping eyes of the vast majority of this nation. That will bring great pain to millions of people but, they have refused to face reality or got "involved way past the point of reality being even available for them to see. Reality has been slipping for a long time. The depth of delusion in this nation leads all the way to hell. For most, that is what they will end up with.

Obama is going to deliver a lot of pain to a lot of dead "Christians" in this nation. The consequences will be tragic for an entire planet. God has already provided for me. I have made hard and painful choices all my life. Those choices involved skipping out on most of the indulgences that have resulted in this nation's vast ignorance. I am "concerned".

Obama has already started back pedaling ona lot of his "big" plans. Those of you who have already shown evidence of short memories, will have missed the fact that before he even takes office, "immediate removal" now means his promise to remove troops means a year and a half - from Iraq. We are now going to move them to Afgahnistan. By the time he gets to office he will already prove himself the liar the liberal Democrats claim he isn't. By that time the excuse, as always, will be, "Oh, we just hadn't realized the desecration of the Bush administration".

I never liked Bush a lot, either but, gave him credit where credit was due. The absolute total detriment of any "credit" from the liberal Dems is ludicrous. Clinton and every president before him of any party have all accomplished varying amounts of credible stuff.

The astounding lack of any educated sense of the Libs, is laughable if it weren't so tragic. Obama will deliver very little of what he promised except to reverse the hatreds in this land. "Whitey", as proven from the election results, got over his racist tendancies a long time ago. A 98% black vote for Obama shows me where the racism now lies. Whitey will no longer be a convenient excuse. But, as with politics, the blame will always be "whitey", Bush, Republicans, conservatives, Christains, etc.

Judgement day will be a shock for the majority. Paradise will be populated by millions of blacks who "got it". There again, as the Messiah said, "The door will be narrow and few will enter" - may I add, of any race, nation, or people.

Spouting the word "peace" doesn't necessarily mean the spoutee will accomplish him/herself any of that "peace". It's a hippie notio that sproute up several decades ago. All you have to do is say "peace" and "love" and it will come. In actuality, those things come from making choices that involve making meaningful efforts. Sitting on a street corner in rags and flahing the "peace sign" meant a few people wanted peace but, long ago lost any fathomable notion of what it costs to get "peace" or "love".

Our nation, as it has gotten politically unfashionable to be aware of or mention anymore, paid huge prices to attain the wonder of what was once this country. Tens of thousands gave their lives in a desperate effort to accomplish the greatest nation that ever sprouted from this earth. Those men gave up all their futures and hopes so people could come here on this forum and spit on their graves and ignorantly post what they have no clue of.

Yes, I have "concerns". Countless millions have given their lives and futures and been lost to memory so more millions can throw it all away. We are a nation that has indulged itself in irrelevancies and bought into huge lies. Many, many more millions are going to lose their "lives" because of our self-indulgence. It has become fashionable to see ugliness where there is value. To be a rebel buys attention and fame but will cost countless numbers their lives and souls. Temporary riches and wealth will buy temporary "stuff".

The fashion of campus and media politics has delivered us to deep hole. When you are there, remember the "concerns" you puzzled over my having.

I put in hard time to spell out things for people that are so deluded that they have no notion of reality or truth. I put in hard hours to put out a single bit of reality that most of you are far from being able to see. You put in a few minutes to skim my latest treatise and then empty headededly respond in wonder over my "concern". The fashionable indulgence of politics when it is far to late - yeah, it "concerns" me.

When I can see that you are able to even think beyond a few minutes, then you will get a respectable response. I can't deliver you to a "good" place when you have your eyes open for only a few minutes of the day. I don't involve myself in any hobbies or fictional reading anymore. I am still quite healthy enough to indulge myself in a lot of pleasurable pastimes. I elect to opt out. I do not put myself on a pedestle but, spend much time painting arrows that point to a direction that involves the finding of truth and love. There are costs but, most are unable to pay for or, recognize"value" anymore. What you see, depends on the amount of will and time you want to put into it. The door narrows as I speak.
