Morning Thanks

Garrison Keillor once said we'd all be better off if we all started the day by giving thanks for just one thing. I'll try.

Really, it's not at all funny

For years, I've rolled my eyes at the madness that sent thousands to gun stores to buy whatever firearms they could find on the racks. Somewhere in the area of 52,000 sales were registered EVERY DAY just last June when, once again, word got out that evil Obama, who's been Santa Claus to gun manufacturers, was going to somehow, all by himself, enact those draconian gun laws the NRA swore he would hammer in place eight years ago already. And didn't. 

As if he could. 

By this time, those Donald Trump calls "second-amendment people" have to be well-armed, gussied up for war as if Guadalcanal was just outside their garage, even though Obama the Muslim never did confiscate anyone's assault rifle and gun laws haven't changed since '08. No matter. Right-wingers went perfectly apocalyptic even before he won the election, had nightmares of Vader-like government thugs, late at night, going house to house for every last .410 shotgun, one's own children somewhere back there bawling and screaming.

"Our sales have doubled across the board," Justin Anderson, marketing director for Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, N.C., a mammoth gun store, told the Washington Examiner after the massacre in the Florida nightclub. "More and more are coming to realize that their personal safety is at risk and their government cannot protect them." Then he stuck in this additional come on, "This is likely the beginning of a long rise in gun sales leading up to the election." Guess why. "Should Hillary Clinton take a significant lead," he said, "it will only boost sales."


All right, I'm in. Can I get buy what I need to on Amazon? Where can I pick up an assault rifle cheap?

If Trump loses--and he's taking his own campaign down the stool--then it's time for me to get armed big-time. I'm considering a bazooka because Trump's "second amendment people" love America so dearly. You've seen 'em at rallies. They bleed patriotism. They're pledging themselves to the streets. They'll make America great again if they've got to beat on liberals to get it there. 

Why? Because he's telling 'em to, their man The Donald. The whole thing is rigged, you know. If he gets in, he's going to lock up Hillary, going easy because his people want her to hang in the street. That's if he wins. No political candidate in the history of America has used language like that. 

But if he loses there'll be hell to pay. He's telling his SS to monitor polling places because should he lose, a worldwide conspiracy of some really, really evil people--he's not saying who--will take over everything and that'll be the end of American democracy. It's rigged, he says. The whole thing is rigged. And no political candidate in American history has said that either. Welcome to The Donald Show.

Look. It's hard to be cute about this because it isn't.  Listen to Steve Schmidt, a long-time Republican operative.

And I can't help thinking that they're coming. His people are coming. Maybe we all better gun-up because they certainly have and they're mad and they're crazy. It's getting hard not to think that if Hillary decks the Savior, second-amendment storm troopers will soon be spilling from black helicopters in a backyard near you. Hyatt Guns, Charlotte, NC.--they got a website.

Honestly, nothing about Donald Trump is funny.

JCS, you are, as Hillary Clinton says, "Off the reservation". (How were her comments not analyzed on all media outlets as racist?!!)
JCS, who fireb0mbed the NC GOP headquarters?
JCS, who is actively committing voter fraud?
JCS, who is paying people to incite violence at GOP rallies?
***It AIN'T Republican "second-amendment storm-troopers"***
You've got the truth completely a$$-backwards.

I leave you with 25 HRC facts:

Wow, have you heard what Madonna (the singer, not the saint) said about getting out the vote for Hillary? Wow, I'm so shaken to the core, so offended, so saddened, that I just can't even type it here--not funny!
Will Hillary and JCS condemn this talk? Or is she actually as perverted as the new Enquirer article suggests (the publication that revealed John Edwards' secret family, etc.)?!

For the 50 years I have know JCS, I have never seen such hatred. It defies your claim to be an open minded educated intellectual. As a friend of mine said the other day the choices are "bad and badder". Hillary has been proven to be a lying snake. Still people blindly follow.

Just ask Bernie about Hillary and the DNC's rigging the primary. Hillary is a poster child for corruption and you continue to defend her.

Matthew 13:13 & 14, "This is why I speak to them in parables: "Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving."

I think this election has awoken my sensibilities and I am re-examing the true role of the church. It will never be sub-planted by any government or leader.

A few recommendations for the church:
1. Recognize that the church is not an organization rather an organism headed-up by Jesus Christ
2. Get rid of the 501 (c) 3 affiliation... no government attachments. Churches will be held accountable for not conducting same-sex marriages and speaking scripturally about homosexuality.
3. Skip church buildings, they are a red flag and invite persecution. They are not needed in China.
4. Churches are a body of believers and we need to recognize who we are and what our true mission is.
5. Gamaliel stated in Acts 5: "Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

I think that main argument here is gun laws and the policies that the Democrats have proposed in the past. To further their agenda of more regulation of guns. Liberals have proven time and time again that they think guns should be taken away. You listen to the likes of Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, or Barbara Boxer, that have sang that tune for ages. It is then hard to believe that Hillary Clinton believes in the second amendment. You look at her pals and then you think about the justices that she will appoint and it is easy to see why "Gun People" are wary of any sort of Gun Control. We don't trust her to make or appoint any "Common Sense" gun laws. This country was founded on the principal of owning a gun so we would not be ruled by a tyrant. Still holds true today. If you limit their guns to one shot pea shooters, it becomes easy to control the masses. Liberals will roll their eyes and say, this could never happen in our country... Well Look at Germany.. it happened twice in one generation. Russia became the Soviet Union pretty fast. We need to look at our past to only see what can happen in a life time. I wished I lived in a world that I believed this could not happen.

Get rid of the 501 (c) 3 affiliation

I find the comments provocative. Do birth certificates, marriage licenses, gun reg., ect, create a liability. We seem to be on a slippery slope that leads to us becoming race blind, gender blind, debters. I am in favor of token resistance, but we are decieving ourselves if we believe our resistance is more than a token.

In Germany demonstrations chant "Save us Putin." Putin may have slowed down the "white genocide" in store for America, but America is still a long way from a racial and sexual awakening.

By the way, why hasn't the number one threat to mankind been brought up once in any of the debates?

Global warming or climate change!

Four word answer, because it is a hoax!
