The Democrats blame the Republicans, the Republicans blame Clinton, Clinton blames everyone and everyone blames Bush. When the buck finally stops it seems to be worthless, and no solution is found. No matter which way the blame falls, or even is deserved, the solution is all that matters so...where will we find it? The more one has to lose the more serious one feels about the situation; an acquaintance lost over $6,ooo before yesterday's vote even happened. Since he could ill afford the 4o1k loss, he is very somber. The more wealthy are more anxious, yet an acquaintance who has no investments and no wealthy possessions is anxious of the government subsidy programs and the gas prices.
The answer is found in where you post the questions. If you place your trust and expectation in the stock market, there you will post your questions, and there you will expect to find answers. If you place your trust and expectation in the government then there will you post your questions and expect an answer. If you place your trust and expectation on Jehovah God then there will you post your questions and there you WILL RECEIVE an answer. Money is necessary to live and carry on the day to day life that we live, but we must never forget who our PROVIDER is and from where our sustenance originates. I pray that rather than panic, people will call into remembrance the forgotten things. And call upon HIM who is able to lead in the darkness, and guide in the foggy days of indecision. God's children, (those who profess to know Him), should never be known to do anything less than Believe and trust Him to take us THROUGH the trouble to the other side in victory...
So no matter who holds the blame; only one holds the answer, post your question to Him .

Why is he here? It would be different if it were the first time, but he has not only been here before, but he has been here and insulted everything about us. You know who I am talking about, HIM, the leader of Iran. I refuse to name him, mostly because I can't spell it. He has been on our soil and insulted our way of life, our government and our president. And we allow him back and treat him with the dignity that should be reserved for great leaders, not dictators. America, what is going on? Israel, is in danger from this man and all he stands for and America as well, and yet we pacify the UN as well as Iran. Only in America, so the saying goes. We have willingly hidden behind shutters that veil us from seeing the truth around us. We have willingly said ,"I don't want to know I don't want to see, while danger lurks ever so closer, until it is not lurking any longer but rather LOOMING on the horizon...and still, we refuse to open the shutters.

My window has been boarded up for a few days due to my friend, computer, being down-- however--- we are up again. It has been an exciting, if not, nerve-wracking week. The stocks, the banks, the bombings, the weather; what are we to do??? It seems that where-ever we turn there is a problem, and just days away from the presidential election. It is time to think deeply, pray long, and act wisely. These events are like stones thrown into water; the impact will cause ripples across the span of time for decades. Let us all take care that our stones' ripples make a positive difference in times.

Presidential Politics is a lot like football season, by the time its ready for the big finish, I am quite sick of the whole thing. This campaign season has went on far longer than any other in the past. Adding a year of accusations, innuendo and mudslinging hasn't helped either side gain points with me. Palin added to the mix has done little to make me more confident in the conservative party, Biden added to the Obama campaign has left me unmoved. Either side leaves much to be desired and so we move closer to the election date. Some say '"Oh we must vote for the best of the bad." Oh really? If I lined up three really bad doctors to treat your severe illness, that idea wouldn't float very long, you would quickly be seeking out alternative medicine. Should our country not deserve the same consideration? Why are our citizens afraid to vote their conscious? Why are we bound to two choices and refuse to demand a voice? It has not always been so, when Abraham Lincoln became President it was thought it could never happen because the Republican party was a "new thing" , a party grown of rebellion, formed on one issue; "to stop the spread of slavery". Before the republican party was formed there were the democrats and the whigs, one idea formed a new party. Today we have many parts, the Libertarians, the green party the constitutionist party, etc. , but the citizens are led to believe that any vote outside the accepted two parties is a wasted vote, this is a handicap to free thought and free election. Unless we vote our conscious we are wasting our vote. The time has come for the citizens of America to stand strong in their beliefs and chose a leader and at the same time say proudly'"I VOTED".

As I watched Geraldo Rivera get dunked by a giant wave, I asked myself,"what have we come to?" Most of America will watch the scene as it plays over and over again on youtube and fox. We will laugh, (because we all know its no more than he deserves), but have we really become so desensitized that we must have reporters risk their lives (if not their common sense) to cause news to be exciting enough to watch? News plays 24 hours a day and most sit with eyes glazed over until the next BIG thing happens. When Gustav blew through reporters converged and the disappointment was obvious as they reported a levy that held through the storm. So my question is not why was Geraldo stupid enough to stand on the sea wall, but rather "why do we want him to?
