Received this from a rabid Republican snowbird amigo who lives in the Lower Keys during the cooler months:
“I don’t think we voted for many of the same people since I voted straight Republican. I didn’t vote the retention issues except for Pariente. I voted no with great pleasure since I remember her partisan approach in the 2000 recount. Of course she’ll win as will the others. I really wish the Republican party would give its recommendation on all of the non-partisan offices and questions. It would make life a lot easier for me.”
If he got his wish, he wouldn’t even have to think at all when he voted. About the same as voting as the Pope says to vote, I suppose.
I wrote to someone yesterday morning,
“If Mittens wins the Oval Office because New York and other “blue states” were knocked out of the equation by Hurricane Sandy, I might view that as an act of God karma thing for President Obama accepting the Nobel Peace Prize for waging G.W. Bush’s two seriously ruinous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“America is so upside down debt-wise, and so addicted to credit card financing overseas and at home, that I don’t see it matters much which one of them wins. While Mittens has experience buying bankrupt companies cheap and turning some of them around, he’s going to have to make his own Republican Party furious, and the Democratic Party just as furious, just to try to turn America around.
“So far, Mittens doesn’t strike me as having a clue what he’s trying to get himself into, and it doesn’t look me that President Obama is the messiah either. Before he beat out Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2008, I was told in my sleep that Barack Obama had the potential to be The Anti-Christ. So I wait with baited breath for November 6.”
Later yesterday, I found myself wondering if Hurricane Sandy, which seems to have clobbered New York City hardest of all, is America’s karma for the way G.W. Bush and most Americans responded to 911? I wondered if I would publish that wondering? Why not? During my sleep three nights prior to 911, I was asked, “Will you make a prayer for a divine intervention for all of humanity?” I awoke, asked God for a divine intervention for all of humanity.
Thereafter, I told many people and wrote many times that America going to war in Iraq, then in Afghanistan, was a really bad idea – just what Osama bin Laden wanted America to do. I kept saying America instead should have looked inside and come to terms what it had done to contribute to 911 happening. As it turned out, 911 was a molecule compared to the destruction those two wars wreaked on America, financially, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Then came Hurricane Sandy wreaking havoc in New York City, to tell all of America that it should have looked inside after 911, instead of doing the favorite masculine thing – point the finger of blame away from self.
The feminine is introspective. She examines the beam in her own eye before trying to remove the mote from someone else’s eye. The result of not doing that is what we’ve been hearing all about during the presidential and vice-presidential debates – an America beyond fixing by either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, unless the winner of that race and his and the loser’s political parties get together and do a total about face and put all of their energy and all of America’s energy into facing up to and dealing with what is wrong in America. Islam is just a messenger. It’s not America’s but is God’s job to try to straighten out Islam. LOL there, too.
Throughout the history of Christendom, and of Islam, and of Judaism, and of other religions, human beings have used “It is God’ will” to justify all manner of evil-doing. George W. Bush said God told him to invade Iraq. Barack Obama believed God told him to accept the Nobel Peace Prize while he continued to wage George W. Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There simply is no reasoning with people who are convinced God has told them to do evil, because they believe what God has told them to do is good. They are insane. And if they are elected officials they are more than insane, they are dangerous. And if they are the President of the United States of America, they are more than insane and dangerous, they are in company with the likes of Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and the Ayatollah Komeini. They are agents of Evil and it matters not that they attend church every Sunday and Wednesday night, and say their prayers every night on turning in and every morning on rising, and read the Bible every day. They are actually no different from Osama bin Laden, only the outside wrapping looks different.
Think again, if you don’t think angels can and sometimes do direct the weather on this planet. And think again, if you dont’ think Hurricane Sandy was America’s karma for the way it reacted to 911, karma that would have been mitigated if Barack Obama had not continued George W. Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
