“…they’re dead – what difference does it make…”

What’s next?  What is this world coming to?  When I was a kid, the worst thing we could get into trouble for was staying out after dark.  As a teen prankster, we used to put rocks in the hubcaps of friends car, pop fire-crackers, cussed and carried on.  I was pre-occupied with my after school and week-end jobs, occasional dates, and a bit of rock-and-roll.  I bought my car, clothes, paid my school tuition; plus paid room & board.  In the 70’s and 80’s, when our kids were going through their teens and college; we were concerned about their smoking pot, drinking beer, and running stop signs….but, they all had after-school jobs, bought their own cars.  They contended with long-hair fad, ear-rings, and their girl, or boy-friends. They wanted it that way, and are better citizens today because of it, and all successful in their careers.  Today….w-o-w…another story.  Hollywood, and government, has brought us Sex in the City, Sex on U-tube, sex in schools, legalized pot, meth, crack, cell-phone-selfies (of all kinds), mixed, matched, and dis-patched marriages, e-cigarettes, Facebook, Twit and Tweet;  student/teacher/sex, gay-this-that, corrupt government, a foreign-citizen-community-organizer-president, un-checked-terrorism, Bengasi’s “they’re dead – what difference does it make”; corrupt IRS and D-of-VA.” A stagnant congress; highest taxes in the world; out-of-control obesity; our grandchildren owe $100K each for government debt; babies having babies; Switzer and Weiner, e-Porno, e-sex, e-College degree, e-food-stamps, e-unemployment; highest unemployment, e-church, NO-church, no-books, e-books, drive-by shooting, theater shooting, school shooting,  unmanned aerial vehicles (DRONES), highest veteran suicide, guns don’t kill – people do. ….. But wait, Hollywood has yet to find Noah’s Ark, or the Holy Grail.  Corporate America has long-a-go kicked God out of the board-room, and… the dying lady is going to send me $23.9 million from her dead husband’s African account….just as soon as I give her my SS#, and $3500.00 for good faith.  WOW… I can’t wait to cash the check.  Freedom of speech is gone, “Stand-your-ground” is going, and “stand-by-your-man is in and out of trouble.  The Voice, DWTS, and the Idol are in; and the Survivor and Bachelorette are barely surviving.  Prayer is out, along with “In God We Trust, and the Ten Commandments.  But all is well….O’Bobin-hood is borrowing from the rich and giving to the poor.  In the end…. God will prevail.  Proverbs 19:21 – You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. Isaiah 46:10 -“Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.  Blessings…cjlb ….5/27/14
