Explaining Away Murder . . .

Definition of the day:
Genocide
gen-o-cide (pronunciation)
The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group, political group, cultural group. The definition of genocide is specific targeting of people of any national, ethnic, racial, or religious group for purposes of extermination.
Well, you might think to yourself, that certainly doesn’t happen with any frequency these days, right? Doing a little research will, however, point out that there are many such attacks on various groups of people happening in our modern, enlightened era.
In fact, Iceland just proudly informed the world of their particular genocide this week and many people on some news channels almost sounded congratulatory. In case you haven’t heard, Iceland is nearly 100% ‘free’ of Downs children in their country. Did they come up with some genetic cure for this? Perhaps, a prenatal diet that will give each and every unborn baby nutrients that would prevent this? No, Iceland is proud of the fact that they are having a genocide on Downs babies in the womb by way of abortion.
This is the stuff of horrific science fiction stories where everyone has to be the same and perfect in order to maintain some status of the empire.
You have to wonder how living, breathing Downs people feel about this to realize that in a civilized country in the world, their ‘kind’ are being targeted. How many Christians are there in Iceland who seem to find it easy to separate religious values from state laws with the sacrifice of the unborn.
The world is busy these days changing out good for evil and celebrating the evil. I read once that every time a child is born, God smiles as would any of us when presenting someone a gift. How would you feel having a gift you bestowed on someone being spurned?

What Happens When The Government is in Charge . . .

You may not have heard about this but there is a 10-month old baby in a London Hospital on life support. In spite of the parents objections, the hospital plans to remove the baby from life support within days. The parents have gone to court on this and been denied a ‘stay of execution’ of their child. Are they asking for more and more ‘free’ medical care for the baby? Nope! They have raised more than enough money to have the child transported to the United States for an experimental trial that might extend or save his life. England and the doctors are not permitting this. A lesson to those who feel that the one-payer, everything is for ‘free’ medical system would be ideal. Ideal until someone other than yourself gets to decide your date of death.

Fantasy, Politics, and the World of Today

With every news report facing us each morning, most of us realize there is something really wrong going on in our world today. The fact that so many people seem to think everything is fine and work even harder toward causing division in the world is beyond belief especially when you consider the good such people could accomplish with common sense and a Christian attitude. Pipe dreams aside, you probably have trouble understanding the whys of so many events today.

The major issue that has always caused wrinkled foreheads trying to decipher the why of it all is the fact that if you hurt or kill a pregnant woman and, subsequently her unborn baby, you will be liable for murder of both the woman and the child. BUT, legally and up to the point of birth in some situations, it is very legal in our country to kill a baby in the womb without a problem of legality or a case of murder. When a concerned citizen exposed the selling of baby parts with proof in the Planned Parenthood clinics, the concerned citizen faces lawsuits and Planned Parenthood seems to be the victim . . . and babies still die needlessly.

Now we are faced with a lot of changes in our country and a multitude of refugees are flooding our borders. As good Americans, these people are provided for . . . while our veterans continue to receive substandard treatment in some cases and so many are actually homeless and mistreated. When I was growing up, my mother was generous with the little we had at the time but the family still came first even if we cut back a bit in order to help another. That doesn’t seem to be a priority today with the men and women who come back from war situations and have to fight for their lives to live here.

Although not nearly as rampant as Europe, we are experiencing hurt and death from some of the refugees who seek refuge here. Towns and cities are expected to take up the slack on this while the government keeps allowing more in than can be dealt with right now. Many of the Muslim refugees will not assimilate so we face many of their religious requirements that are not in line with life in America today. Welfare was stretching quite thin before this influx of refugees and isn’t getting any better now. You have to stop and think about how many citizens in our country do pay taxes and how much longer can we consider having the government look good and gracious on our hard-earned dime.

So many of the politicians we, the people, have voted into office care more about their agenda than represent the interests of the people who voted for them. Just this week, one politician was leading a crowd in chanting about impeaching the President. I know this isn’t a perfect world but with several other countries who wouldn’t mind seeing the United States fail and a small country who keeps trying to get their missiles to hit our coast, you would think petty difference and post-traumatic shock from the presidential election would be put aside in trying to protect and save our country.

The name calling, abrasive behavior, the distorted truths fire off from the losing side of the November 2016 election isn’t changing anyone’s mind about the way the votes went last year. They thwart every move President Trump makes and blurs the needs that have to be dealt with while they continue to obsess over the country’s rejection of their candidate’s election to office. There are gatherings (aka riots) most every week in mourning for their fantasies about how the world could have been perfect . . . if only.
Guess that common sense isn’t readily available these days. It certainly doesn’t seem to be coming from the halls of higher learning. We have a good many problems that need to be addressed soon in our country if only the world could come up with a miracle . . . not for the fountain of youth but for the sense needed to finally grow up.
