WND Article About Obama's Hatred Of America #ObamaFAIL #ImpeachObama
It saddens me how much America has drastically changed just in the past 10 years or so. I grew up in the America when jobs where plentiful. It wasn't perfect by any means, but one was encouraged to make the world a little better place by working hard, saving money, and always doing the right thing. One was proud to say "I'm an American!" But now I noticed people don't like to admit they're American. We've been sliding for quite sometime, mostly in spirts, but it seems that our descent into oblivian has been happening at an even more rapid pace. Has anyone else noticed the disturbing upward trend in the suicide rate? So many seem so depressed, worried, harried, overwhelmed or unusually stressed. I know. I feel that way myself sometimes but I just take a breathe, say a prayer, read the Holy Bible, then make myself go do something fullfilling. My stress relief is going for a motorcycle ride, or gardening, or helping someone in need, or genealogy research.
One must pick one's battles carefully so as not to get overstressed.
Nations come and go, you know, and ours has had many downturns since the beginning. The first major one began about 1913 ... no, it goes back further than that. Being a genealogist, I read a lot of historical pieces by much more learned folks than myself. I noticed that our Nation took the first major downturn about 1845 or so. (See the Federal Census from 1850 that first started wanting to know everything about peoples households.) Then Abraham Lincoln happened in 1861 and he drug American ideals through the mud by throwing the US Constitution out the window, committing impeachable offences and even started our first "Civil War", or as we call it down here in the South, The War of Northern Aggression. He was our first really worthless President. From there our Nation had brief upswings of prosperity (under Calvin Coolidge) and downswings (Woodrow Wilson, both Roosevelts, Jimmy Carter, all the Bush's, Bill Clinton). Now we seem to just be roller coasting straight downhill with no brakes thanks to the sub saharan culture that has taken over Hollywood, the schools, our government, etc.
Today I noticed a link to this article about "Americans Snapping By The Millions" on another blog. Wow. It was as if the writer was reading my mind or, scarier still, listening to me yell at the TV! It's the same as what I've been telling everyone that will listen: Obama HATES America and all this doom and gloom and 'executive orders' are part of his evil plan to remake it in his graven image. The article is a good read. But those of you who feel depressed, please know you're not alone. JESUS LOVES YOU all the time. And if you want to talk about it further, leave a comment here. Please don't give up hope. Bad times come and go, but remember you're important and treasured by Someone bigger than all of us.
I like this quote at the bottom of the article:
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing,” James 1: 2-4 KJV.
And may I add:
"fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 English Standard Version
And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31 English Standard Version
