Another Warning Day has Come and Gone . . . or Has It?

I'm not a follower of Harold Camping, but I have found some interesting coincidences to be taking place. First, it was October 21st when he crossed my mind and I thought "that's right, this was the back up doom's day." In retrospect, I just can't help but wonder about some things. First, what if he was right about judgment and just wrong about the rapture, because; everyone that believes in a pre-tribulation rapture is wrong. But what if he did get some of the rest of it right? I mean the worst tornado on record in over 50 years ripped through the US the day after May 21st. Then there was the worst drought on record this summer in Texas and Oklahoma, not to mention an excess heat index over half the country. We can't forget the flooding and crop failures of all magnitude based on both extremes. We lost crops and livestock due to flooding and drought. Then there was the hurricane that ripped up the east coast. I've lost track of earthquakes happening in strange places . . . And of course, our economy continues to flail through this "slowed recovery." What if he was wrong about the rapture, but we're just too blind to see that we are living in judgment? If this isn't judgment, shouldn't we at least consider all these facts as Warning and heed the message?
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. words of Y'hshuwah Messiah

Campaign Observations

I've noticed just a couple of things that I feel the need to point out. One, I find President Obama just too elite to represent myself and the people I know. He just comes across above "it all." That would be great, if he wasn't also one of the many folks digging the hole while making ridiculous, empty promises. Now, setting aside empty promises, we have Michelle Bachmann making talking points of empty issues. I look at her and think she seems even more superficial and shallow than Sarah Palin, if that's even possible. Next, we have Herman Cain, who I really was kind of liking until he came up with this 9-9-9 tax deal. That only helps the big corporate guys and is going to make everything cost a fortune with a national sales tax. Wow! Can you see it now? A national sales tax on top of state and local? So a loaf of bread or dozen eggs would have say, about 17% tax on top of it's inflated price. Great plan there, Herman! The GOP has come up with so many "winners" that Newt Gingrich's numbers are actually climbing . . . And finally, in nearly last place comes Rick Perry, who just last month was the "man of the hour." He is suggesting a 20% flat tax. I'm not sure where the teavangelicals get their doctrine, but this is exactly the tax that Pharaoh placed upon the people through the time of the famine. Anybody else seen the pictures of Texas? Looks like famine country to me . . . How can folks talking about being so Scriptural not see that Pharaoh was on the wrong side of the plan? To impose the exact same plan as Pharaoh and call it blessed is ludicrous. By the way, one fifth is the same as 20%!
Where are the reasonable, respectable politicians?
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones. Torah of Holy Scripture

I Hadn't Thought Of That

When I heard today, that President Obama has promised to have all troops out of Iraq by the end of the year, it was such a strange deja vu. I clearly remember President Nixon promising to end Viet Nam the year before the elections. Now he sweetened the pot a bit more by allowing the 18 year old vote. We'll see if this current president takes any more leads from what seemed to work in the past. I am quite surprised to continue to see President Obama take action that rings of the republican play book. I'm still thinking he needs to do something major concerning the economy and debt, but this administration seems to not mind high living and high debt. Promising to end a war worked in the early 70's, although President Nixon had to resign and was out of office before the last troops actually left Viet Nam. We'll see how it works out 40 years later.

My Observation So Far

It would seem, the GOP cannot come up with any candidate their constituents like for more than about a month. For the past several months, each has taken his or her turn at being the rising star of the GOP, only to open their mouth or reveal their track record, to begin declining in the polls. The Tea Party doesn't seem open to Herman Cain, and of course, many were hoping to hear the declaration from Sarah P., but alas, Sarah is smart enough to realize her real fame and fortune are not in solutions and leadership, but rather in rallying the dissatisfied. Now to the other side of the aisle. President Obama isn't doing so well, either. As it turns out, President Obama is not nearly as effective or stirring as Candidate Obama. As a matter of fact, his only real security as a candidate, is the fact that the other party can't agree on one. Here's my thought on his re-election hope. It appears he's going to need some of that hope and change he promised four years ago. He could declare a forgiveness of past student loans and legalize pot. Short of that, considering his inability to actually lead, his main hope is a disconnected GOP.
