I like Donald Trump. He tells it like it is and I trust him for it.

The Diaper We Know as Obamanomics

I think Erskine Bowles would have been a good treasury secretary cabinet pick, however, the guy Obama picked is no surprise; he can spout bare-faced lies (i.e. the government has not got a problem with deficits) as well as the President can, so he qualifies.
This government of ours is amazing. They don't produce anything, they don't create anything; by law they are allowed to take taxpayers' money, but yet they do not responsibly take care of it. I wish they would treat our money as if it meant something to them! It is very difficult to make it--it takes time, it takes effort, a whole lot of people sacrificed to get it, and yet they spend more of it than they take in. This is why Congress has a majority, because the Senate does not seem to get it.

My first post I did not intend as an attack on Christianity, but on those who would call themselves Christians, and rather look to the government to supply their need rather than trust in God's promises and lean on God's word on the subject. I Tim. 5:8 "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he has denied the Faith, and is worse than an infidel." II Thess. 3:10-12 "..that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some..working not at all...Now them who are such we command & exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread." Many think this is common sense, but now you know--it has authority: this is God's word on the subject.
Just don't equate the sacrifices of the WWII generation with that of the 1+ trillion cost of Obamacare. In the face of a 16 trillion dollar deficit, why don't you admit that the best sacrifice would have been to repeal the monster Affordable Care Act? When I was growing up, we didn't have health insurance. The bill for my birth was in the hundreds of dollars. My mom spent ten days in the hospital. (Her doctor, like others of that day, prescribed hospital bed rest as she had six others at home.) We received good food at home, prepared by my stay-at-home mom, who remained married to my dad all her earthly life until his death. We were fed, clothed and housed by my parents and welfare was eschewed and work was esteemed. Intangibles matter.
majarhum what you really mean to say is It's OUR turn now. We won, you lost, you wasted money, we spend it wisely, I want what I want! WAH-WAH-WAH!!! Turn it up, keep it up---keep that rant going. One person said yesterday, 'Can't you get it through your head, we wanted Obamacare.' So come on, say it. You want your gov-ment benefits! Hal Lay Lou yah, praise the Lawd! Yeah, we got that, that was pretty clear.
We all know what you were happy about, Mr. Matthews. You're so giddy your candidate looked good in the wake of the hurricane that that's all you cared about. A few hours of him looking "presidential" and America can forget all of his failures, gigantic spending sprees at taxpayers' expense, lying and self-absorbed campaigning for the "greater good" of all mankind. In short, he gets the high life, his supporters get their means-tested welfare benefits, and the rest get the shaft, I mean, the bill for the cost. Every job lost is one less taxpayer to pay the bill. No amount of taxing the rich will offset the spending of this bunch, no matter how much they legislate to confiscate.

Don't Blame Romney

How many self-identified Christians sat at home because they "couldn't bring themselves to vote for someone who did not believe like them?" Romney was a fine candidate. Did their short-sightedness cost the election? We were voting for a commander-in-chief, not a pastor-in-chief. God knew the choice we had. As Christians, I believe it is our moral duty to vote. Our service men and women fought for this privilege; we ought to exercise it.

Sarah Palin: Don't Lose Heart

Sadly, Democrats never are happy when they win. Your problem is sin, not Republicans. Jesus said, I am the Way, the truth and the Life; no man comes to the Father but by Me. You are a soul and spirit created by God. He made you and your destination is either heaven or hell upon death. Your misery (originating in your sin nature) is going to get worse. You've been given free moral agency to choose your eternal destination. The law of sin and death cited in Romans 8:1 can only be overcome by the law of life in Christ Jesus. You obtain that life by acceptance of what Jesus Christ did at the Cross of Calvary. You choose. For more info see sonlifetv.com
