Maybe prayer is our only answer

on July 19, 2011

It is getting so ugly in politics, it isn’t about issues anymore, it is about who is in control of the media (meaning the news as well as the entertainment industry) and the lies being told and the character assassinations by them, not to mention that many of our schools are not teaching history properly.  I truly think we are screwed.

    Of course we're screwed. And, not to begrudge anyone's faith, prayer is the last thing that's going to save us.In fact, I'd argue that it was to a large degree faith that has brought us to this point. It was on faith that anyone thought all this spending over the past 60 years could possibly sustain itself. It was on faith that people elected politicians to fix things with broken machinery.What we need at once is a healthy dose of the magnitude of this reality. It is then that a new dawn, a new age of reason will be born.You can't teach logic or common sense. People either embrace it or they end up being consumed by it just as the United States is at present.

  2. The media and the schools are the tools of the Ministry of Truth (Orwell's dystopian novel 1984).Yes, we are screwed.One more generation — and we'll be Third World country.
