Empire Building

Things are certainly moving fast. I'm one of the few Americans that doesn't think President Obama has managed all this in just a few short months. I remember e-banking established in the last administration, as well as e-medical records. I also know, if anything good is coming from any decisions, it's simply the grace of G~D, but to be honest, I don't see much good coming from any of the decisions made in this new century, from either side of the aisle or the citizens for that matter. I just finished reading about "Clear Fly." It's the biometric card for getting through the airport without having to be treated like cattle or walk through the body scanner. Now that President Obama is telling PM Netanyahu how Israel should be run, and promising the Arab countries to keep Israel in tow, I look for this Empire to build even more rapidly. Again, don't get me wrong. American Presidents have long been telling the rest of the world what to do and what is expected. America is just kind of the self appointed "earth monitor" much in the tradition of ancient Rome. As a matter of fact, it's getting clearer and clear to see the Roman Empire is really still alive and well, just renamed, America. And the more convenience, security, and power "we the people are promised," the more most of us will bow down and accept it, and depending upon the side of the aisle that it is presented, will ask for more! The left side of the aisle will offer health care and education and their constituents will tout the greatness of the Empire. The right of the aisle will promise protection and private prosperity and those constituents will laud and applaud. It matters not which side of the aisle takes more power and makes more promises, it's all coming and quicker than we think!
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. a Prophet of Holy Scripture
