A Conundrum.

Tom's  Journal.

To my warrior friends, who with me lived through it, and for others who might be interested, just FYI--be sure to watch the trailer

I tasted one of the huge strawberries that Terri got for Mother's Day...  also the same sort that I sent my Mom, and they were GREAT !  Very over priced, but special things warm the heart and stick in the memory.  

A wise old man, now passed, once told me, 'he never got too wrapped up of hopeful nor so trusting in another human being, or a mechanical device...  because Murphy's Law too often comes to the fore, and dashes all hope.'   For this reason, I enamored myself many years ago, with the book Ecclesiastes,  which provide wisdom and logic.  A young man may work so hard and steady, but without wisdom, he may lose his riches/ reward.  
     For this reason, Eccl. 9:11, says,  "I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill;   but time and chance happeneth to them all."   And, at Eccl. 10: 7,  "I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth."   Some folks chase after money, fame, women, property, strength and health....  but anything CAN happen, and does happen!!   But if a man [or woman] place and publically confess "Jesus as Lord,"  they are 'locked in that special relationship with Him,' and can know that they WILL go to heaven when they die... or get Raptured up when the Lord comes back !!   It took me so many years to finally accept this TRUTH of the Bible... after getting misled for 22 years by the JW-cult, after I came home from Nam.   I know, that I've prob. told that story too many times, but I say it as a warning to the new ones who are just starting to read my humble blog, etc.  

Twenty years ago, most of us didn't completely understand Socialism that way we do now, and how wicked and dangerous it can be.   And most of us are just figuring out how a renegade occupant in the WH has gone around the U.S. Constitution, the Congress and Senate !!!   Honestly,  Obama reminds me of the serpent in the Paradise with a cunning silver tongue lured Eve to sin, and then Adam didn't want to lose the beautiful woman, so he sinned too !!  We must remember:  that the woman was DECIEVED,  NOT THE MAN !!  STD [Satan the devil] likes to hit the 'weakest link' and corrupt with sin and wickedness, to bring the whole house of cards down.   Women are not stupid -- but the have a different emotional make up, where as men are 'hard wired' and can more plainly see the truth of the matter.   And there is a lot of food for thought on that subject.  But that is why a man MUST take control of the situation, and avoid giving in to the woman all the time, no matter what.   But our world, at this point is so 'upside down' now, and it is now Satan's world.   So,  raising a family with Bible standards is rough these days.  Few will make it to heaven--compared to the billions that will be left behind...  sorry.   If that is hard for you to believe--  just read the short piece below.

Warm  Regards,

 A conundrum....that which does not compute?

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

And here's another one worth considering...

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't. Think about it.....

and Last but not least,

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?
