But so are the changes under Comrade Obama. I will…not…sway from that opinion until I see corporations multiply and grow like rabbits, creating the jobs necessary to keep them as wealthy as they want to be, causing the market to burst through the 13,000 points that it was a year ago and careen past 15,000 or more. Private enterprise and the free market create wealth and jobs and make the pie bigger, not socialistic ideology that throws confiscated money at slugs.
What triggered this mess was Fannie and Freddie. And don’t anybody doubt it. The people who loaded that gun are still in lawmaking positions in our new USSA Kremlin. Both McCain and Bush tried to stop it in 2005 and all efforts were tabled and canned by the aforementioned lawmakers who brought us the Fannie/Freddie debacle.
That said, (whew), it’s been a fairly decent day at work. Not too much stress, no one yelled at me, and I completed the tasks at hand without losing control. This weekend they’re playing Cubie Basket Upset. Everybody’s getting moved into place for the new team functions. I think they just want people to clean the crumbs out of their cabinet drawers.
I’m just tickled that our parent company, a major bank that shall remain nameless here, is still in the black in spite of TARP and plans on giving it back. To keep it that way, they’re cutting all hourly employees’ hours to 39 and reducing wages by 3%. As unfriendly as that is, it isn’t a layoff. So far, so good. The upside is that we choose where the hour is deducted. I chose sleeping in an extra hour on Thursdays. Not too shabby.
I still stand by my previous post’s opinion on Jesus’ return. The weakening of our nation’s defenses and the turn-the-channel attitude of our people is well on the way toward implosion and attack. The power grids can go out with some well placed explosives by people like those who flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. You can choose to store up and prepare or hope there’s enough evil wealth left over to redistribute to you. However, this badness could go on for years. Honey’s right in that we don’t necessarily create the end of the age with our politics. Just because it’s headed that direction doesn’t mean for sure that it’s next week or next year or five. I don’t have the stopwatch. But, how bad do you want it to get? The stage really is ready for the last act.
If God does not judge this nation for, at the very least, her crimes against millions of innocent unborn, not to mention the tolerance of pornography and homosexual lifestyle demands, for turning from Him in all our ways, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. If He doesn’t keep His word, His prophecies of judgments, He’s a liar.
Don’t think God’s gonna apologize to anybody is my humble opinion. We’re in the scariest and the most exciting period of time since there was time.
We don’t need to go crazy with bomb shelters, bunkers, and guns, but I still think we need to stock up on the canned goods and candles.
