The Sheep of His Pasture

You my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, are people, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord. – (Ezekiel 34:31)

 

These words were spoken by the Lord through Ezekiel, at the end of a prophesy of warning to those who were in leadership positions who had abused their authority and not cared for those whom they were meant to provide care. For those who had remained faithful, the Lord promised a covenant of peace and His blessing. God reminded them that He counted the faithful as His own, and that He would care for them, as would a good shepherd. Even more than that, the Lord assured them that He was their God, and His sovereignty was their assurance that He indeed has the supreme power and authority over all. The word given then, remains true throughout the ages. The Lord is still our Good Shepherd. He is our God and is sovereign over all. If we draw near to Him and give Him our heart, He counts us among His people. May we seek our Savior with our whole heart, and know His sovereignty in our lives.

 

May we be faithful,The little lamb

whole-heartedly seek;

our Savior and Lord,

as His humble sheep.

He is our Shepherd,

Who tends us with care;

provides safe pasture,

delivers us there.

When He is our God,

He forgives our sin;

He rules and He reigns,

our Lord, sovereign.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we seek You with our whole heart, You count us among Your people. Thank You that You shepherd us with Your loving kindness, and that You are sovereign over all. Thank You that no matter what comes our way, You are God, and You are greater. Forgive us for our fear and lack of faith, and help us to trust in Your unfailing love. Teach us to love as You so lavishly love us, and may many come to know You as their God, as we faithfully follow You. Be glorified, Lord God, as we go forth as the people of Your pasture. Amen.

Obama’s America

Mr. Obama seems to feel that he only has to enforce/obey laws that he approves of. What happens if the Supreme Court tells him that Obamacare is unconstitutional? Will he decide that he does not have to listen to them? If so, what then? What if Mr. Obama decides that he does not have to follow the process in the Constitution and run for re-election in 2012? Or if he loses, what if he decides that he doesn’t agree with the results, and just stays in office? Will Democrats support removing a lawless President from office?

Will the country stand up and demand that he steps down?

And even if the country demands it, will he do it? What happens if you have a lawless President that refuses to step down? Can we legally use the military to remove him? Would the military obey? After all, until he does step down, he is the commander of the armed forces. Would that lead to a cival war? Who would be fighting? If this country went to war against itself, who from the outside would step into the breech and take advantage of our weakness?

Obama’s Lawless America


America The Lost

According to an article in the Washington Times, the FCC has approved the implementation of a system that will possibly endanger the country.  The article states that “The FCC bent the rules so the Reston-based firm LightSquared could offer a new wireless Internet service that fulfills President Obama’s high-profile push for public investment in broadband”. Why? Does this company do something that is so important to America that it is vital to the security of the country?


According to the article that is not the case at all, in fact, this will actually decrease the safety of the country,” “Department of Defense is concerned with the [order and authorization] being conducted without the proper analysis required to make a well informed decision,” the department’s spectrum policy director wrote in Dec. 28 letter.”


Our DoD is concerned that the proper analysis wasn’t done and yet they approved the deal anyway. According to the article, even the Pentagon wanted the action delayed. Why? If these agency’s are concerned with the safety, and didn’t feel that it should be approved, common sense would tell most people, that it would be prudent to at least consider the problems that they were worried about.


Another part of the article is what really scares me the most though. It says that “a commonly used aircraft navigation unit completely lost its fix within 5.6 miles” of a LightSquared transmitter. You would think that this would be something that would concern the FCC. If this is something that puts fliers and other GPS users in danger, why would you approve it without trying to resolve the problem. Where will these transmitters be located?

What is the responsibility of the FCC? According to the site “The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 and is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable.”

Does regulation involve protecting the interests and safety of the American people, or does it mean something else. Does the Chairman of the FCC, Julius Genachowski, have the obligation to decide which business will profit and which will lose, even at the cost to the safety of the American people and the defense of the country itself?


Think of all the things that the GPS system is integrated into, cell phones, aircraft navigation, satellite systems, and many other things that are used everyday. If they aren’t able to get a fix within a certain distance of this transmitter, what will be the cost to the people who depend on these systems?  Does this mean that when an airplane flies over that they will lose their signals?


I don’t know every use for GPS, but I do know that if I  have Garmin or some other navigation device in my car, I want to be able to depend on it. I also do not want whatever plane is flying over one of the transmitters to lose it navigation. The danger to the millions of people that fly, sounds to me something that would be considered by the FCC.


Is LightSquared so important to the security of our country that it is  more valuable to us than GPS? If so, in what way? If not, what was the reasoning behind the decision to approve it’s implementation? And why would you rush through the approval process and bend the rules for something that both the DoD and the Pentagon have concerns with?

EDITORIAL: Obama to America: Get lost – Washington Times



Obama’s Failure Of Leadership

We, as Americans, are a generous people, but there is a point where we must say, no more. We have reached that point, with this administration, in so many ways. What will it take to make this country secure, if our own government is determined to prevent it? What will it take for the people to reach a point to where they are currently in Egypt? Are they deliberately pushing us in that direction.


As parents, the security and safety of our children is the most important thing in the world to us. When we fail in keeping that child safe, it is the most horrible feeling in the world, and yet our leaders seem as if they could care less. It is their obligation, it is what they were elected to do.


When they abrogate that obligation, what right do they have to remain in power? Our children deserve better. They are being left with a massive debt, that may never be paid. They are being told that they need to get used to a lifetime of control by the government. They are being told that they cannot expect to have the same lifestyle that their own parents had. And they are being left defenseless by a despotic government that cares nothing for the safety and well-being of the very people who have elected them into power.


Thankfully, our founders were smart men, who foresaw that there would be people  who would use these tactics. And they wrote the remedy into the Constitution, itself. It is up to us, the American people, to make sure that we return to the principles this country was founded on. It is also up to us to use the laws of this country to prosecute those who are trying to destroy it.

 


Translating the state of the Union

I am supposed to do this so here I am.

America used to be great, but we prevailed.

We Were tested.

Bush messed the country up and spent a lot of money, so we spent more money.

Things are better, but they are worse.

Kids don’t have the money to go to college.

I read some sad letters from kids.

Ignore all the pettiness from my side, but tell the republicans to shut up.

We need more government so we can make things better.

We had to do the bailout.

If we hadn’t people would have lost more homes.

We made everything more transparent.

We’re going to add a new tax on the banks.

We stabilized the economy, gave people more unemployment, and less insurance.

We cut taxes, even though we raised a lot of taxes, we did cut some.

Millions of Americans had to spend more on gas and food.

We added a lot more jobs, in the government.

Economists from the left and the right say that it didn’t help the economy. Just look at all the signs that say the recovery act is at work. And look at the bad teachers that the teachers union refused to get rid of, and the money we got from you is paying their salary.

I am calling for a new jobs bill again.

Business has to have the government make them hire and get jobs going.

After all that is where jobs get started.

So we need to spend some more money.

And build high speed trains that go nowhere.

Give me what I want.

We can’t afford to have the economy we had during most of the Bush years.

Washington has been telling us to wait for years, while China, France and others have already built the trains.

I am not interested in protecting the banks, what I really want is to punish the people.

We need to be even more reckless than we were before.

We have to make sure we control the financial institutes so we know everything about how you spend your money.

We just need more green jobs.

And cap and tax.

I know we can’t afford this and I don’t care.

We’ll make others trade with us.

We are going to make sure all the schools teach Saul Alinsky and become sheep.

And we are going to make all of you pay and extra $10,000 dollars so we can tell them what to learn in college and make them serve us afterwards.

We are going to nearly double the child care credit and really bankrupt the country.

I got Obamacare through and I am not going to give it up, even it the Repulicans repeal it and most of America doesn’t want it.

By the way, Michelle doesn’t like fat people.

And you are all just to dumb to understand Obamacare and I didn’t spend enough time explaining it to you.

Premiums are going up and more people are going to lose their insurance.

So, with global cooling, look at what we have done and declare it great. And you better agree.

Now, listen up Congress, give me the rest of what I want.

After all, all this other stuff was all Bush’s fault.

Our efforts to prevent a depression only added a trillion dollars to the debt. That is a trifling amount.

I know how to fix the country, just add some more money. We can afford it.

Don’t worry about the debt, I will just set up another commission.

Yesterday the Senate blocked a bill to do that, but who cares, I am going to do it anyway.

The right is telling us to cut the budget and stop spending, but they don’t know anything, they are in the back of the bus.

So instead of listening to the Congress, I am just doing what I want. If it is not in the Constitution, then they need to rewrite it the way I want it.

We know people don’t trust us, but that is there problem. They don’t matter.

Lobbyist need to be transparent unless they work for me.

Congress needs to stop the earmarks, at least the Republicans do.

People need to have everything online so they can see it before they vote on it, except for the bills I want that I can put a lot of regulations in and get more power and money.

Of course the Republicans really need to bow down and kiss my ring.

Everyday is Election day and Republicans need to pay attention to Congress while I get out and campaign.

And the Republicans rhetoric needs to stop.

And in a few days I will tell the Republicans that again, and they better listen.

If the Republicans are not going to let us pass bills without 60 votes, then it’s all their fault.

Let’s don’t worry about all the illegal immigration, they don’t matter to our security. Besides, they vote for me.

Since I took office, we have focused on the terrorist right here at home, you know, all the tea party, and the church goers, and the people who carry around a copy of the Constitution.

And Afghanistan, maybe we will win, or maybe not.

We leave Iraq to it’s people, al Queda isn’t there anymore.

And Jill and Michelle support military families, as long as they are not fat.

These wars are Bush’s fault. And I will get rid of all our nuclear weapons, even if it puts us at risk.

I am going to keep talking to all these rogue countries, because I am such a supreme being that they have to listen to me.

Of course, if they don’t, there will be consequences, I have no idea what they will be, but there will be consequences.

We are providing leadership. We are working with Muslim communities to promote math and science, it wouldn’t do any good to help our own kids.

We have helped Haiti, it’s not my fault that they can’t get it away from the Government there. And it is just too bad that those girls in Afghanistan are getting killed for going to school, we are still getting out of there.

People in other countries love me. And you better love me too.

People are all created equal, but some of us are more equal than others and I get to decide who that is.

My transformation of America is almost complete and you better not get in my way.

Quit listening to TV pundits and talk radio, especially if they don’t agree with me.

I campaigned on “change you can believe in”, it’s your fault that you didn’t believe that I would change the country this way. You should have listened.

We will do what is necessary to raise our poll numbers and get re-elected. If people had done this 50 or 100 years ago, we wouldn’t be here.

We had some setbacks this year, but we are going to get our way by going around the Congress.

Just like the people who write to me, including the eight year old child, tell me to do.

We don’t quit, I don’t quit, so let’s finish destroying this great country.

Rahm Ruled Out In Chicago

Well, well, could it be that Chicago is not quite as enamored of Obama’s pick for Mayor as he thought. I think this ruling really caught them be surprise. Wonder how the Illinois Supreme Court will rule.

Disrespecting America: Obama’s Real Message

Moonbattery has a very good post that I have linked to below. This goes along the same lines as my previous three posts and really gives a good idea the disrespect the Obama administration has with our country and the people in it. It also shows how little they actually care about the security of the country.
