This weekend I have been busy being thankful for all the blessings and freedoms that my family and I have. We went up in the forest to cut our Christmas tree and put it up. We put up our lighted cross in our front yard, finally got our potatoes in storage, got the remains of the corn off the stalks and in a box for chicken feed this winter, and tried to tie up any loose ends before winter really hits. DH also coyote proofed the chicken pen. We are taking the time to be prepared and be self-sufficient, so we don't have to rely on others for our needs.
Meanwhile, other, less thankful people have been busy making life miserable for the rest of America. I am sure you have heard about the woman at Walmart who pepper sprayed other shoppers to deter them from getting "her" XBox before she could get her grubby hands on it. Is this what our shallow materialistic personalities have come to? Is an XBox really worth treating others in this manner? 20 people were injured. The woman apparently has surrendered.
Then there' the OWS protesters in San Diego that "continued its outreach program of thuggery, harassment and intimidation on Black Friday" by verbally harassing Walmart shoppers with vulgar rhetoric and filling 75 shopping carts with merchandise, then leaving the carts for employees to restock. Isn't that nice? Has anyone seen evidence that any of these protesters even have jobs, a mortgage, or a family to support?
Of course, this discomfort may pale in comparison with what Oakland protesters are planning for December 12th. They plan to shut down all west coast ports. The Oakland protesters are calling to close the entire west coast. Do they realize that this will affect their access to goods and services as well as the rest of us? Seriously, their antics and intimidation are hurting the workers of America who are trying to earn a living and provide for their families. Remember back in September when 500 Longshoremen broke down gates of the Port of Longview at about 4:30 a.m. and smashed windows in the guard shack,...and six guards were held hostage for a few hours. Not everyone who belongs to a union is like this, but this is how violent and disruptive our unions and protesters are becoming. Makes you proud to be giving your money to these crooks and thugs, doesn't it?
Don't forget the US terrorists in Egypt who threw molotov cocktails at police. At least one wants to renounce his US citizenship. Let him. Let's leave them in Egypt to experience what other countries do to terrorists and criminals. I don't want them back here in our country.
My friends, I fear our life as we have lived it is fast approaching it's demise. There is massive unrest and violence in our cities. The liberal leftist looters are after us and our way of life. This civil unrest my lead to a civil war. Our politicians have spent our cities and country into a deep abyss. I don't know what the answer is, but I do know that I need to be right with God. Be thankful and be prepared.
