It seems like, well it is that all, myself included, have forgotten the one single truth of creation and that is there can be no change without making some changes or going through change! “For all have sinned, and come short…” ~ Romans 3:23 “I listened and heard, but they did not speak right; no man repented of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? Everyone turned to their Own courses Own way, as the horse rushes into the battle.” ~ Jeremiah 8:6. I guess Michael Jackson had it right with “Man In The Mirror.” ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PivWY9wn5ps
The age of accountability, “And your judgment shall be of the male from twenty years old even to sixty years old… from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war…” ~ Leviticus 27:3 and Numbers 1:3. Therefore, from age twenty, 20, on each person is accountable for there own actions thereby bringing each back to the COMAND, choice, or “the question” as it is, for many, the basis for the right of FREE CHOICE, for the choice is ours and yours alone… will we, will you obey or disobey?”…You may freely eat of every tree in the garden, but you shall not eat of the tree of [the] knowledge of good and [the knowledge of] evil. For in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” ~ Genesis 2:16-17.
Please understand, “…shall the work say of him who made it, He did not make me? Or shall the thing formed say to him who formed it, He had no understanding?” ~ Isaiah 29:16. “And the vessel that he made in clay was ruined in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it… can I not do with you as this potter?.. As the clay in the potter’s hands, so are you in My hand” ~ Jeremiah 18:4 and 6.
“…Why do you strike your neighbor? …And who is my neighbor? …A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among robbers, who stripped him of his clothing and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by coincidence a certain priest came down that way and seeing him, he passed by on the opposite side. And in the same way a Levite, also being at the place, coming and seeing him, he passed on the opposite side. But a certain traveling Samaritan came upon him, and seeing him, he was filled with pity. And coming near, he bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine, and set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And going on the next day, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him. And whatever more you spend, when I come again I will repay you. Then which of these three, do you think, was neighbor to him who fell among the robbers? And he said, The one doing the deed of mercy to him. …Go and do likewise.” ~ Exodus 2:13 and Luke 10:29-37. Cost less than “forever war,” however you can’t make a profit off of GLOBAL PEACE can they or is it THEM!
Part of a downed Stealth Helicopter reported to be based on the AH-60L “Battle Hawk” a derivative of the “Black Hawk” possibly the MAH-66. Ain’t that something we lose even when we think we actually won. And we are now worried about the implications of this Secret technology falling into the hands of China… Oh well, shit happens, so come up with some new toys as a race is no fun when its just with yourself! So, I wonder was the loss a purposeful act to let China catch up to make it a real race, hey, we don’t have the U.S.S.R. to race with anymore!
Burial at sea within hours… Wow, that was fast!
I don’t know about you, but it all just seems suspect!
Recently, a new friend of mine went through a rough situation that he pointed out to me. I looked into said situation and he posted a message that stated, “Common sense is not all that common.” Well, I disagree, as I told him and even he had to see the logic of my argument.
You see to call it “common sense” is wrong as if it were common then everybody would have it, but as everyone doesn’t let’s just call it sense. Yeah, I’m saying that many people in this world do not have the sense that the Almighty gave beast.
As I saw from the transcript, he was in an up hill battle with persons that failed to understand his point which I, and many, understand clearly. OK, let’s get hypothetical, if a dog watches as another dog gets run over in the street even that dog has the sense enough to understand that if I go into the street I will get run over also! However, the dog will not stay away from the street, but it will be cautious while crossing it.
Why can’t people learn this?
A guy goes to see his doctor and informs the doctor that when I do that I get pain. The doctor instructs the man, “Then don’t do that.” Simple solution, you know, KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid! Well, people on the other hand seem to have something to prove to whom, I don’t know, but even if they know if I do that, then this will or may happen to me! So, what is the first thing they go and do, the thing that will cause the adverse outcome…they lack sense…they lack a sound state of mind or maybe they just like pain, suffering, and/or death…its oh so sad people!
Some of the people that suffer this condition…for lack of a better word lets call it stupidity as it is a quality or state of being stupid, or an act or idea that exhibits properties of being stupid.
People stupidity is a real problem and there are many that suffer from the incurable variety as there are those that we willing take their own lives due to the fact that they are stupid and their family or friends didn’t pick up on the signs of incurable stupidity and have them institutionalized for their own good, health, and safety.
It is so very sad, but all so true! Stupidity is a growing problem among society today and we need to do something about it, so all you parents out there teach them while they are young as it starts in the home as with most problems we have today!
Defined as “lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind.
That can be said of us all at some time or point in our lives, so are we all stupid? Or are we all just mere mortal, therefore imperfect, beings of flesh, blood, and bone given the breathe of life and, humans, the gift of intelligent thought, conscientiousness of the self, the individual.
Yet we read, “And I turned to behold wisdom, and madness, and folly; for what can the man do who comes after the king, when they have already done it? Then I saw that wisdom excels folly, as far as light excels darkness. The wise man‘s eyes are in his head; but the fool walks in darkness; and I also knew that one event happens to all of them. Then I said in my heart, As it happens to the fool, so it happens even to me; and why was I then more wise? And I said in my heart that this also is vanity. For there is no memory of the wise more than of the fool forever, since that which is now shall all be forgotten in the days to come. And how does the wise die above the fool!..And again I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that wickedness was there. I said in my heart, Elohim shall judge the righteous and the wicked; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. I said in my heart concerning the matter of sons of men, that Elohim might reveal them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which happens to the sons of men also happens to beasts even one thing happens to them. As this one dies, so that one dies; yea, they all have one breath; so that a man has no advantage over a beast; for all is vanity. All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all return to dust again. Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward? Therefore I have seen that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion; for who can bring him to see what shall be after him?..Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear Elohim, and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man. For Elohim shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good, or whether evil.” – Ecclesiastes 2: 12-16, 3: 16-22, and 12: 13-14.
Stupid is just a word, nothing more! What more needs to be stated?
I came across a statement recently that stated, “There are those among us that are, well, stupid. People, stupidity is a real condition and it should be taken seriously in order to help the stupid get…well…treated as there are some varieties of stupidity that can be cured. Sadly, there remain many varieties that are incurable!” I thought about this for a while and realized the truth of it.
There are few that have been blessed with the gift of understanding and even in that some use it to evil ends and there a few that use it…struggle to use it to good or right ends as the means will decide the end…good in, good out…evil in, evil out…good and evil in, evil out…get the point?
That leads us to ponder whether this gift of understanding is a blessing or a curse? Well, the Preacher, states, “For in much wisdom is much grief; and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.” – Ecclesiastes 1:18.
That leaves us with the conclusion that it is a burden like any other, for it is a blessing that brings great joy and sorrow…for how would you know the joy without the sorrow? Yes, it is the questions that drive us, mold us, and shapes us to do great works of good and/or evil…what is your wish?
In the article “An American innovation in light bulbs, but will manufacturing stay in the U.S.?” I find the on going story of the U.S. losing more and more manufacturing capability. When will our government stop playing into the hands of the third world and develop policies that will keep the remaining manufacturers in this country?
Or is our, those of us that are the potential employee’s, fault due to our greed, our unending want for higher and higher wages? I know everyone wants a higher wage, but do we see where that leads? It leads to increased cost and prices for goods! Therefore in our quest for more we cause the need for higher and prices to the point that we can no longer afford the same products that we produce. So in an effort to reduce cost, thereby price, the manufacturers do the only option they have left to them go off-shore to a third world nation where they can pay far, far lower wages when accounted for in U.S. dollars.
Ask yourself the following questions. Are we the makers of our own manufacturing demise? Can government actually do anything about it?
We are becoming a service society dependent upon third world nations for the majority of our manufactured goods. That is very poor logistical situation. How can we continue to be a great nation while we depend upon distant nations to supply our needs?
Yes, the U.S. is a fallen nation and unlike the former U.S.S.R. we don’t even know it, nor are our leaders attempting to rationally address the situation or is it a lack of leadership in the U.S. government that is the root cause? I believe it is both the people and the government that are at fault…stop being so greedy!
