Hi Folks. There are so many things happening in our country and the world, that we are not finding anything inspiring to write about today.
It seems that the country is holding it's breath to see how the outcome of the Ferguson grand jury will turn out. There are many, many people that don't feel the outcome will be good, regardless of the jury's decision. My heart really goes out to the people that live in that area. We can't imagine how difficult it is to wait and see if chaos will break out in their neighborhoods.
Then there is the new round of executive orders our Tyrant in Chief signed. I don't know what kind of shape we will be in by the time he leaves office.
Next, comes the lack of reporting on Ebola and the suspicion that any real information concerning this disease is being suppressed. I really don't feel we have any real idea about the spread, or lack thereof, of this highly contagious illness.
So, the next distraction to be splattered on the headlines while we wait to see if protests and rioting will occur, is how fragile our electrical grid is. It can be taken down anytime by hackers from anywhere in the world, which will bring on TEOTWAWKI.....at least here in our country. Then what? How will our not so friendly neighbors around the world react if that happens? Especially if they are the ones that cause the grid to go down.
Fear. It appears that everywhere we turn, we are supposed to be afraid. Fear is a very good control mechanism. If Group A can cause enough fear in Group B, then offer a solution or protection
from the reason for the fear, then Group B will accept whatever conditions come with the protection. Sound familiar? Can we say Patriot Act and NDAA? Don't worry about the new, latest and greatest crisis Group B, we'll save you! But, there is a cost, you know. You will have to pay the piper. You can't afford it? Well, that's okay, we'll let you work it off by paying for all of the other schmucks that won't, and have never worked, and didn't have to, because they've always played the game right. Unlike you. But, don't worry, be happy. We are here to save the day.
Why is it that a relatively small group of people with loud voices and demanding, aggressive personalities can control the rest? Why is it that small groups of demanding people can force others to accept their ways of life? Why is it that regular, old folks cannot speak their minds and have everyday conversations expressing their views? Why is it that the masses allow themselves to be manipulated and controlled by such a small group? It brings to mind the Holocaust.
Are we the only ones that feels this way? Do you feel this way? Do you feel that we're heading down the path to light, or to darkness? A good while back Frank felt that something had been loosed in our world.
It just feels like something is not right, and it appears to be getting stronger. Frank and I are both religious, spiritual people, but we don't like to blame every negative that occurs on a lack of Christ type of scenario. But, it sure does appear that is what is happening. Everywhere we turn, there is bad or evil. Lying at the highest levels has become common, even when it's so easy to prove that they are lying. When we were children, we were taught that lying was one of the Big 10, that you don't break. The Ten Commandments, that is. And now days, it seems to mean nothing. Billy Graham even recently said we are educating our children in a culture of evil (paraphrased).
We feel sorry for the poor folks in and around Ferguson, Missouri. We hope this turns out relatively peaceful. But there seem to be bad folks at all levels, that are doing everything they can, to insure there is some form
of crisis. Remember, never let a good crisis go to waste. This one just doesn't feel right. We're sure we'll find out soon enough. But, remember, there are a lot of good folks out there, too. We don't think we'll be seeing or hearing much from them in the next few days, because what we see and what we hear is not impartial any longer. It's just a prettified version of eloquent lies coming from talking heads. We're scared, and we don't think we're the only people that are. We're going down a deep, dark path into a forest where sunlight seldom reaches the ground. Whatever has been loosed is about to devour it's prey. Slowly at first, but it's here.
So, Folks, we don't have any inspiring words today. We're frustrated and angry. We're afraid. We know that there are many good things in this world, and it will continue to be so. It's just that today, these dark, somber days are heavy and foreboding. Be vigilant. Please pray for the folks in Ferguson.
May God bless us all.
Frank & Fern
