Finding Christians

I don't often mention many positive things because from my high horse I feel there are too many important things to discuss that I ignore important tasks like mentioning what is actually going right once in a while.  Although it does nothing to provoke argument I got such a feeling of greatness tonight that I came back to the candle flame like a moth-writer does.


I admit that there are great and awesome Christians out there.  I know some personally and - as this blog is not really about people I know - I need to make it that way for a blog-post cycle.

The Christians that I know personally - and exist with in my daily life accelerate their greatness to me in so many ways that I cannot really get into.  They will and do constantly try to find a way to fix things - that is a fact.  They are not brainwashed masses - but the most generous and thoughtful and caring friends a person couldn't even ask God to supply - because the Christians I know are too good to even imagine once you get to know them better.  And so far it is all of them that I know personally who enrich my life and give me reason for gratitude.  And in their honor, I wish to give that gratitude to them and God.


I don't know enough - maybe they are afraid to speak out in this country - but as a good friend said - the fervor has died down for the moment - but wait....

Since the fervor from the terror attacks on the homeland have diminished - does that mean we are in for another self-inflicted terror attack to get the masses begging for security and more war?

The Future of America

I am convinced by recent discussions that our American future is at a crossroads and that the public would like it to go in certain directions - away from war and more toward the "homeland."  Fine - let's keep up security if you wanna' have all the drama - but let's get part of the economy back to reality and start fixing this place up and get some people back to work.  It's still business!  What difference does it make if the government spends all our extra cash on weapons or on peace projects to "protect the homeland" from poverty?  What is the point of being poor to support war, if the same expenditure - on a project at home will provide jobs and prosperity and preserve lives?  What is the point of losing lives when the war isn't necessary?  And why are so many wars necessary?  Why do we have troops in 140 countries?  Are we at war with 140 countries?  If we are in financial trouble like everyone says wouldn't it make sense to slow down on our expenditures and maybe make peace with ten of those countries so we can shift that money from the war industry to homeland businesses and construction?  Think of the schools and libraries and cities we could build with all of that money.

Think about the solar energy available in our deserts that we don't use - and the fantastic energy independence this nation can truly achieve.

We are on the verge and can move this country toward greatness - but that requires boldness on all of our parts.  We have to all, someday be willing to sacrifice for real - in ways we didn't previously imagine to save the greatest nation in the world.  A nation made great by a Constitution that works - if it is followed.  We don't need a new form of government we have a great model that can really be followed and monitored with all of the security cameras the government installed that can now be made public online so we can all watch the same cameras the government is watching.

And while the government is busy doing all these things we need, they can make sure the public law supports the citizenry owning military equipment equal to or better than that the government -after all we will never need it until the government isn't able to protect us any more - then since their equipment must have failed protecting us we'll have to use our superior stuff in a last ditch effort to protect ourselves.
