The Book of Daniel.

Tom's Journal.

Here is a picture of my beloved son,  Andy Schuckman, dancing with my Rottweiler dog, male.   Andy was killed about 6 months ago, about one month after I lost my dear wife, Sharon L. Schuckman, in death, from CHF -- heart failure.   I was very close to these 2 fine human beings and taught them both about being 'Saved' by confessing Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, before they both perished.

My Dear Friends, and Readers,
     I find it just so uncanny and wild,  that when I need some encouragement the most -- God ALWAYS provides it for me !!    And Hal Lindsey,  is a 'Master' at choosing the right words at the right time, and he humbles me in that I wish I had his skills and talents.   When I see and read stuff from the loyal servants of the Father,  I am moved to contribute some funds if I can, and that is also why I included Hal's snail mail address at the bottom.   Please join me in chipping in some funds $$$ if you possibly can, dear friends.    If you say that you like and agree with this stuff, please share it with your friends, and don't let it just go 'dead.'
     If you say that you love God, and His Son, Jesus Christ, but don't THINK you have the talents and skills to share the Gospel as I do,  why not chip in some money to folks like the ones I post and re-post on my humble blog.    I am NOT asking for any money for myself,  because God has already blessed me with good jobs most of my life, and my pension keeps me alive....  lol, and surely not any humans on earth... Ha!  

In fact,   I have NO friends where I live now, in the "Ice Box" where people's heart are also cold as a frozen stone !   And I am now saving every dime for a move farther South of here in the coming Spring, if God wills it.

       But when you read what the man said about the Rapture --- that COULD come at any time, now,  we do well to head the words of James:     James 4:14 Why, you do not even know what will happen ...
James 4:14 Parallel Verses ... What is your life? It is just a vapor, ... King James Bible Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life?
  • James 4:14 NKJV - whereas you do not know what will ...
    For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. ... James 4:14. James 3 James 5. James ... Scripture taken from the ...
  • Lesson 18: Life is a Vapor (James 4:13-17) |
    Expository study of James: Because life is a vapor we should ... Life is a Vapor (James 4 ... all Scripture Quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, ...
    Life is a Vapor
    Life is a vapor - Pastor James Knox Sermon Jam
    Life is a Vapor. Live Like it! - Tim Conway
    Life is a Vapor

  •       I used to have a fear of just dying alone... all by myself U.P. here in Northern Michigan, instead of with my loved ones,  but I am trying and praying to the Lord, to take that fear from me, and that I KNOW He loves me, and I am clean now and undefiled, walking a proper way, in His Grace.    You see, friends,  most folks just don't understand how powerful the H.S. is !  The Holy Spirit !   Somehow,  I need to come up with,  $2700. just to move my few things/ stuff, in  a  4 hour drive South of here, back to the back to Wisconsin,  where most people understand and speak the higher form of English.   Just like Hoch Deutsch... or "radio German", dialect.   But we shall talk about that some time.   Right now "we have bigger fish to fry."

    Now,  some folks just love being alone, or they replace humans with animals and sometimes even kiss animals,  which I find disturbing... even though I love great, smart dogs, like the Rottweiler noble beast.   Kiss should be reserved for humans, only,  IMHO.   But when I was growing up in Middle Class, polite society America,  men didn't hold other men's hand of kiss them on the lips, ever.   That was reserved for the other sex... the ladies, and girls.   You see,  time change --- but God's laws remain the same, forever.  

    Anyway,  down below, Hal makes such an excellent analogy / comparison,   between God's 'predicament' and the Persian king,  Darius, who also got caught in his own words....  but with God's help, figured out a way to correct things !!   It is such a wild, interesting, true story of how God is the Mastermind, and always has the right solution.   Well,  that ought to give us lots of strength, endurance, and peace of mind !   It has helped me a lot,  today !

    Remember:   The best revenge is Massive Success !   I think that Mr. Trump thinks that way,  too.    Not to be negative,  but looking at Obama and his junk yard dog, his Sec. of State, john Kerry....they are both acting like really sore, sour grapes, LOSERS !   They are going out of their way now, to totally destroy and cripple America before they leaven office.   Clinton did stuff like that too, including stealing the silverware from the WH !     Shame !  And look at how many people voted for these two 'humans !'   That why we can readily see that 'few' people of the world/ earth will be Saved....   sorry.   God doesn't want quantity  --but he wants only the humble, who really bend knee and try to follow His Son,  Jesus.

    Love, and Hugs,
    Tommy  Schuckman

    The book of Daniel is the most important prophetic book in the Bible, even more than the book of Revelation. This week, however, I will focus, not on the prophecies of Daniel, but on the man and his character. It's an especially timely study in a world charging headlong into a new dark age.

    Daniel lived one of the most remarkable lives in the history of the world. Even as a teenager, he changed the course of history. But in the story I want to examine this week, many years have gone by. The Medes and Persians had defeated the Babylonians and taken their empire. Darius now ruled. For about twenty years following the death of King Nebuchadnezzar, it had seemed like Daniel's career was over. But as happened to him so often, he quickly rose through the ranks again.

    After becoming one of the most important figures in the empire, Daniel's integrity and the king's confidence in him ignited the jealousy of his peers. But the only way they could eliminate him was by concocting a plan that depended on his faithfulness to God.

    As the world grows darker, God can and will prosper and care for His people, but don't expect everything to be easy. The psalmist wrote, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous." But he doesn't stop there. He goes on to affirm, "But the Lord delivers him out of them all." (Psalm 34:19, NASB)

    Daniel is testimony to that promise. He made the decision to honor his convictions rather than obey the dictates of the state. By doing so, he assured himself of a terrible fate. He was thrown to the hungry lions.

    And his friend, King Darius, trapped by the power of his own words, was helpless to intervene.

    It's interesting to note that because the law of the Medes and Persians, once signed and confirmed by the king, was unalterable, King Darius found himself facing a dim reflection of the dilemma God Himself once faced when Adam and Eve chose death over life with Him. He loved them, but had given His word that sin always carries a death sentence. And God's word is infinitely more certain than the law of the Medes and Persians.

    So in His infinite wisdom, God devised a way for His love to deliver sinners from His wrath while not compromising His righteousness and justice. Jesus Christ took upon Himself a human nature, lived as a true man, and never once sinned. He therefore qualified to voluntarily take upon Himself the penalty and punishment for our sins. He died in our place and secured a true forgiveness for each one who will receive it as a gift. Salvation cannot be given if any human merit is attached to it. Salvation is an absolute gift.

    Tune in this week as I examine how the intractability of the Law of the Medes and Persians, and Daniel's faith in his God, led to a national revival of faith in the one true God.

    Don't miss this week's Report on TBN, Daystar, CPM Network, The Word Network, various local stations, or Check your local listings.

    For those of you who watch "The Hal Lindsey Report" on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), please note that we are moving to a new time. Beginning Friday, January 6, 2017, the Report will be seen 30 minutes later, beginning at 6:00 pm Pacific/9:00 pm Eastern. Hopefully, this new time will make it even more convenient for those of you in the western United States.

    I want to wish all of you a wonderful, blessed and happy new year.

    Thank you so much for your prayer and financial support of "The Hal Lindsey Report" during the past year. We are on the air around the world only through your faithfulness and persistent giving.

    As I look back on 2016, I'm amazed by the prophetic developments that have occurred. The Bible warns us that in the final days of this Age, the appearance of the signs of the times will occur with greater frequency and intensity.

    I will continue to report them to you as long as God gives me the strength, the resources, and the opportunity. I feel, however, that the rapture of the true believers could occur any day of this new year.

    If it does, I'll see you on the way up!

    Maranatha! And Happy New Year!

    God Bless,

    Hal Lindsey

    Israel's RIGHT to build home is Settled.

    Tom's Journal.

    .....So you still don't think this could happen in AMERICA  ??   READ >>>

    “Financial Lockdown… ATMs Went Dry”
    Cash is being restricted to maintain control over the citizenry. Long lines, withdraw limits, capital controls, will all define the next crises in America.

    Hi  Friends,
        So far,  I had a good day, in the icy North, and as I look on my new calendar,  I see that I have nothing planned for a few days, so I can rest and release any anxiety or worry for a while.   You see, dear friends,   who would even think that a man has to  "WORRY" about anything when they retire ??   But  you still have to check your snail mail to see if there are any new bills that need prompt payment,  etc.   And the beat goes on....

    I need to made a strong,  valid point today that is very important, please.   There are certain subjects in life, in school, that we all MUST learn, EVEN THOUGH THEY SEEM SO 'DRY,'  boring, tedious, and worthless in our eyes and minds.    Sorry.   But the facts are:   that our culture, religion, Faith, History and Patriotism and honor,   can vanish and disappear in ONE Generation ! !   And it all boils down to 'how we vote,' and what kind of people we 'put into office, Federally and State !   
         My prime example, and where I have to even blame myself,  is one example:   When I came home from the war and combat, [and perhaps many others like me--- thousands of young men and some women]  I had to 'readjust'  chill out,  and climb back into 'gentle society.'   So, in other words,  I was truly tired and weary of fighting and being 'on guard,' being hyper-alert, etc., and that was MY main Priority, and all the other things in life took a back seat, or back burner, for many years, even after I got married to a sweet, short, farm girl, who gave me 3 sweet, wonderful children.   PTL.   In hindsight,  I wish I could have somehow shed the war and combat mindset sooner,   but at that time the  stinking VA didn't really give a damn !!   Sorry,  but most  Combat Veterans from the Vietnam Era, will tell you the same thing, and there are TONS of documented evidence, more so, now than ever... and pure truth coming to light !   Not to worry,  I have posted my personal stories of those hard times here on this humble Blog site, many times in the past.   So,  we don't want to plow the same ground twice.    And.... I admit that it's at least 50% my fault that many of my 'relationships' didn't work out.   But being the 'End Times' mentioned in the KJV Bible,  these 'Last Days' will also be hard to deal with, and many women got sucked into the Women's Liberation Movement, and have just abandoned their husbands and even their children to go run off and "do their thing !"    And,  compared to 30-40 years ago, many people see ME as very calm, peaceful, kind, loving and gentle now days !   Especially after having 'found the Lord !'   And you might now know how POWERFUL the Holy Spirit is and how it can change a man or woman, so quickly and change them into a whole different person !
           I know, that sometimes I might lose my way,  but the H.S.  --- Holy Spirit, always pulls me back to the right path or light and true understanding.    I am so thankful for that !   Thank You, Lord !

    So,   now that I have laid a firm foundation for this post --- and it is so important that a WAR may start from this piss poor, demonic illegal "Order"  from Obama and Kerry.    Should we not know the truth??   Like I said, this might be boring history to some --- but it needs to be learned, and now !!  
         The Bible says that there will soon be a HUGE war/ battle fought between Israel, and a confederacy of many other nations marching against God's own Nation or Israel..... and just look where the USA put itself.... against ISRAEL !   They don't know and they don't believe that Almighty God will protect His own Nation,  and all who oppose Israel will be brought to nothing but dust in the wind !

    Now,  before the bigger war,  we hope and pray that Father God will beam us up, up, and away, to a "Safe Place"  --- but Father God is leaving all of that in the hands of Jesus, His only begotten Son, and the Creator of everything,   just to makes things truthful and clear.     But go read the bible for yourself if you have a challenge with my credibility.    And also be aware of the many great 'tools' we have now days in the PC --Personal Computer.    Check out:  E-Sword,  on-line.   And there are many good commentaries,  but be advised that you have to remember that it's the KJV Bible that we only adhere to as the main 'spokesman.'  

    So,  the main theme of this post is:   "Israel's Right to build homes is settled... according to International Law."   And no matter how many times others may say something --- that doesn't make it true.

    In other news today,  the local VAMC put an attachment onto the bottom of my walking cane, so that it will 'grip' the ice better so I won't fall down and go BOOM !   And my landlord came over today to install a new bedroom ceiling light that is better than the old one that got damaged,  so I gave him a bottle of Blackberry Brandy, to enjoy when he gets home on this cold night.   Blackberry Brandy, is sort of an old Traditional 'Hunting Drink' that we take Deer Hunting, to stay warm, and happy.    But you NEVER, ever, want to hunt when you are drunk,  and we don't want to ever be drunk, anyway.   But just one shot might be OK, and some say it tastes like medicine.... LOL.   Everything has it's lace in life, so I've heard.    Peppermint Schnapps, used to be our "Homecoming Welcome Drink" in our family.    The Schuckman Family,  tradition, more/ less.  

    I wish I knew how to contact a small family who is homeless, and maybe I could help them out for a short time, to get back on their feet, and maybe teach them a few things to help them, and they could live for a while in the upstairs portion of my big house in Norway, MI  49870.     If you have any ideas, please forward them to me.   I was in hard times and dire straits a few times in my life,  and had NO ONE to help me out,   but I am not that way.    It was at that hard time in the Milwaukee Winter of 1994- 95, that I found the Lord, and things got better for me really quickly after that.    Email me, and I will give you my phone number.   I do not have any dogs or cats anymore....  Non-smokers, ONLY !

    Don't be afraid to email me, and tell me what you think concerning my blog, and/ or comments about how I might make it better or more interesting, please.

    Warm Regards,
    Tommy  Schuckman

    Prime Minister of Israel

    Here we go again with the U.N. peddling the biggest geo-political hoax of all time — that Israel’s control over Judea and Samaria is illegal, that it belongs to a distinct Arab people called “Palestinians,” and that the source of Islamist mayhem across the globe is a smattering of Jewish homes being built in their ancestral land. Land, which by the way, is virtually invisible on a map compared to the mass of land controlled by Islam.
    While Islamic jihadists are blowing up every corner of the world, what is “the international community” focused on? Yup, those pesky little Jewish homes built in their ancestral home on a parcel of land not even visible on the map. The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution before the Christmas weekend that “reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.”
    Obama instructed the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from vetoing that resolution, an unprecedented step given our history of vetoing anti-Israel resolutions. Worse, it appears that Obama was likely the ringleader behind the resolution because, according to Israeli sources, Vice President Joe Biden convinced Ukraine to support the resolution, a move that shocked Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

    Actually, Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria is enshrined into international law

    The notion that there is any moral equivalence between Jews building homes in their homeland that they won back in a defensive war (after it was illegally occupied by Jordan) and brutal terrorists illegally occupying land that was never given to them, is reprehensible. But first, a brief history lesson …

    The only binding resolution of international law, a resolution which has never been countermanded to this very day, is the July 1922 Mandate for Palestine. Adopted by the League of Nations, that resolution recognized the “historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.” It called for the creation of a Jewish national homeland anywhere west of the Jordan River.
    Once the League of Nations was disbanded and the United Nations formed in its stead, the international community agreed to maintain all agreements and not “alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which Members of the United Nations may respectively be parties.” [Article 80, UN Charter, emphasis added] This provision wasn’t inserted by accident; it was known as “the Jewish People’s clause” at the time it was adopted in 1945 in order to enshrine the 1922 Mandate into international law.
    The Mandate for Palestine adopted by the League of Nations was the last legally binding document delineating regional borders. In Article 5 of the Mandate it explicitly states “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power.”
    The Palestine Mandate (and Iraq) was given to Britain to serve as a temporary trustee based on the resolution between the four principle Allied Powers in April 1920 at the San Remo Conference in Italy, which was signed by 51 nations. It was at that conference where the world powers adopted the 1917 Balfour Declaration (which originally allocated the eastern part of the Mandate for a Jewish state as well) creating a Jewish state. This same conference that created the Jewish state west of the Jordan River also created Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iraq as Arab states.
    The legality of the 1922 Mandate was adopted that same year by the U.S. Congress in H.J. Res. 360 and signed by President Warren Harding. The newly created Arab country of Jordan attacked Israel in 1948 seeking to annihilate its inhabitants and illegally occupied Judea and Samaria until 1967. That year, Israel won back the territory originally allocated for a Jewish State as part of the 1922 League of Nations agreement.

    There is no such thing as “’pre-67 borders.” They were merely 1949 armistice lines between Israel and neighboring countries after they launched an illegal war of extermination. It has nothing to do with the notion of a unique Arab “Palestinian” entity west of the Jordan River. There was never any internationally recognized legal sovereign occupying Judea and Samaria from the time the British Empire fell until 1967. Jordan’s occupation of the area west of the Jordan River was never recognized. To the extent there is an Arab Palestinian state it is the modern state of Jordan, which already sucked up 77% of the original Mandate of Palestine allocated for a Jewish State under the first plan of the Balfour Declaration.
    In many respects, this is the biggest global fake news story of our time.

    Although the U.N. has bloviated time and again about Israel “withdrawing” from the region, those are merely recommendations and political arguments. They are not legal arguments because once that land was allocated for the Jewish state by the binding charter of the U.N., it cannot be rescinded without Israel’s consent any more than Florida can be taken away from the U.S. and be returned to Spain without our consent.
    Until fairly recently, even the Left was forced to admit this legal and historical reality. During an interview with Matt Lauer on October 1, 1997, then-Secretary of State Madelaine Albright reluctantly admitted that although she was unhappy about recent construction in Judea, it was indeed legal:
    SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: I wasn't happy. We had had a conversation, and I felt
    that going forward with those kinds of buildings was not helpful. It is not
    in any way not part of what they can do, but they shouldn't do it.

    MR. LAUER: It's legal.

    SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: It's legal. But I think that, in this kind of an
    atmosphere, it's very important not to take actions that are viewed by the
    other side as creating more difficulties.
    Unfortunately, over the past generation the geo-political elites and the media has repeated the lie about an Arab “Palestinian state” and “illegal Israeli settlements” so many times that it has become true in the minds of so many people. It’s a classic strategy domestic liberals employ when they conflate political arguments with legal arguments. In many respects, this is the biggest global fake news story of our time.
    The reality is that Arab squatters living in that region have no legal right to a state in that land, much less a right to murder Jews who build homes in the rightful territory of their state duly adopted by international law. But even those who subscribed to this nonsense over the past few decades must wake up and smell the Jihad. The fact that Jihad has spread to every corner of the world, including in the West itself, should demonstrate incontrovertibly that the source of the problem is not a few homes built in the Samarian hills by Jews. The problem is global Islamic supremacism.
    It was heartening to see Donald Trump release a statement opposing the U.N. resolution and threaten their funding. But he needs to take it a step further and end the entire policy of promoting a second Palestinian State (the first being Jordan) altogether. Pursuit of an Arab “Palestinian” state has been one of the most wrongheaded failed policies in modern history and it’s time for the Republican Party to formally abandon it forever.

    'When it all turns Ugly.'

    Tom's Journal.

    Hello  Friends, and Comrades, 
       I know that for one reason or another,  right now,  many people are looking for ways to 'trim down 2 things,'  ---Their stomachs, and their Credit Card-- I.O.U.-- bottom line $$$$ --Debt load ! !   Some people have said:  like in the movie,  True Grit,  'having enough is the same as having  a feast.'    I have noticed a few things in my life of writing, and starting a "Journal" way back in High School...   And just maybe that is why I so love the books of Psalms and Proverbs.   It's Wisdom --- from Above !   Lord,  I could have saved myself so many huge, diverse problems and challenges in my life IF, IF, I would have/  could have been tutored and steeped in the Bible  earlier !   There in lies most of the answers of Life !  

    Now,  this is related to the main text and body of this post today, borrowed and pasted down below.  
         We might even say that Abram [later changed to Abraham by God], was sort of a "Prepper."    Because, the book of Genesis,  Chapter 13,   verse 2, says:   "And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold."   Now... Abraham was called a "Friend" by God,  so that means that many times,  God blesses His servants and worshippers,  and there is nothing WRONG with having money and material things !!   OK,  I know that many people love to tell me that investing in 'Metals" is not good,  because you cannot EAT silver, gold, platinum, palladium,  copper, and other metals.  Yes!  That is true... but Abram also had CATTLE, so he could tell one or more of his servants to go out and put another T-bone steak on the grill !     Beer was made by the early Egyptians and Babylonians, [but perfected by the Germans,  many years later]  but Abram probably had plenty of good  wine to wash down the onions, carrots and beef steaks.  The apostle Paul not only preached and taught the Gospel all over the Mediterranean area and parts of Asia Minor,  but he also was a tent maker and paid his own way.   Matthew was into Finance, and Peter was a fisherman, etc, etc.   Everyone had some sort of trade or skill.    So Paul was the Apostle who said:  'If you don't work -- you don't eat.'   Check it out, fellows !  You can just 'click on the blue Links.' 
         2 THESSALONIANS 3:10 KJV "For even when we were with you ...
    2 Thessalonians 3:10 KJV: For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. ... I don't know you.
  • 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, we ...
    ... "The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat." ... NT Letters: 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were

  •    But right now my back hurts so bad that I can hardly walk.   So,  I bought another, strong, leather belt today, from "Bull Hide Belts," and hope that might help me,  but I will also seek medical advice very soon,  too.   
         Ha!   I call my Mom in Wisconsin often,  because I love and miss her,   and she keeps asking me if I have anyone U.P. here to love me....    And I tell her that 'I have God to help me, and the VA...'    I spoke to a combat Marine to day at  WalMart about the people U.P. here in the far North of Michigan, and he gave me his honest opinion, so then I gave him my business card, and a bible tract, and he smiled as he walked away.   I could tell that he was 'messed up' by war and combat...   but I said to him,  "We should get together for breakfast sometime !"   Without my power scooter,  I simply could not shop these days.   But I have a friend that is willing to shop for me, and I pay for her gas, etc.   I know  how to treat people RIGHT, and show KINDNESS and appreciation ! !

    Let me please explain what a "Realist" is.    It's someone who wants to be an optimist, but he is educated in many ways and skills and talents with some godly Wisdom too.   So, he [or she] looks ahead at the future in INVESTS in a number of  "Probable Possibilities and Outcomes" in life.   It's just like we were trained in Finance to help people pick the RIGHT kind of investment by giving them a short, simple, test, to see 'how much risk' they could stand.     Remember,  that there are all kinds of risks in life, and we hear of movie stars and important people losing their shirts and skirts in bad deals or some 'get rich quick scam.'   You might be able to do that when you are young....  by taking a big hit, or loss,    but not when you are older, so you change things or tweak them as you get older -- into "Safer" investments, etc..   So you really want to be on the 'husband and wife's side' to make sure that they invest correctly and wisely.  Personally,  when I invested at Chrysler's investment  opportunity system, with no charges or fees when I "tweaked" them,  as I was into 3 different sorts of Mutual Funds that I picked out  ----- and I did well, and made a bundle  $$$ !       But I knew what I was doing !   I have also helped a number of friends took, after I finally got Securities licensed  working at PFS Investments,  when I lived in Kenosha, WI.

    Investing in the FUTURE also means, spending quality time and effort with the KJV Bible...   maybe one hour per day,  but that amount is up to you,  not me.  Maybe 2 hours of study per week !   Now,  believe it or not,  it is really the husband's  JOB to teach and prepare his wife and children's heart and mind  --- in weekly bible study !   And finding a 'good, bible teaching church in your area MIGHT just be impossible, now days, as many are leaning into the Muslim/ Islamic view/ and mind set.... which is a horrible sin that will bring all sorts of sorrows on your heads.... and Jesus is not so far away, these days.   We must be prepared now for anything to happen.  
          And just look at how much DAMAGE Obama is doing right now to drag America down low and stabbing our only Democratic Freedom loving Israel in the back before Christmas !!   Ask Congress, or demand that Congress hold on at all costs, until Mr. Trump takes over and hopefully 'Drains the Swamp' and kills the poisonous snakes.    He will need a new Army for that huge chore !    But I am sure that all of our Military and Veterans would gladly follow Trump to the Gates of Hell !  
         But still, beware the 'Puppet Masters' controlling the world, who can and will dump all of the rotten trash on Mr. Trump to hamper his cleaning job, and that is why I posted this blog post tonight.  Please check it out, friends.
    I know that right now the Stock Market is going UP, UP, UP, because of Mr. Trump, and it makes people feel great !!   I just want you all to beware,  because,  "What goes up -- must come down."   And History teaches us that a super crash of the Market always follows a big Stock Market rally and euphoria !!  
    So,  we must be prepared in every possible way,  friends.   I am not fully prepared yet, either.   I am up here all alone without a support group of any kind !    I guess that is part of my own fault, as I show poor judgment too many times, and trust the wrong kind of people.... stupid me.   And the name of that Marine I mentioned before at the store, was,  Tom.

    Warm Regards,
    Tommy Schuckman

    OK, this is actually pretty obvious – but it is worth pointing out that the “archipelago” of islands across the vast expanse of the United States that carried the vote for Hillary Clinton during the election – also happens to be a ring of the liberal cities that:
    a) have exploded with crime, riots and unrest
    b) have provided sanctuary for millions of illegal immigrants that have destabilized the country
    c) are going bankrupt and will be unable to fulfill pension obligations, or pay their share of social security, welfare, etc.
    d) have been foremost in advocating gun control, and ensuring that only criminals and police have guns, while 2nd Amendment arm-bearing citizen have flocked to the rural areas where their rights are not generally restricted
    e) will be the first places to be become unstable during any major crisis – as soon as grocery store shelves go empty. Martial law will be the only way to maintain stability, and that will come at a further price to liberty.
    f) will be the first place to line up for FEMA camps and beg for food, shelter and rations, again, at a further price to liberty
    Of course, there are many more items that could be added to the list, but it gets tedious, and I think everyone gets the point.
    Liberal havens have become largely clueless about the real world about them, and have turned a blind eye to the destabilizing forces that are compounding upon them.
    IF/WHEN the SHTF, these will be the absolute last places you’d want to be caught dead.
    IF you were clueless enough to believe Hillary’s lies and endorse the collapsing establishment line, then there’s a very good chance that you’ll have no idea what to do when the system breaks down. You will either help fuel or be caught up in chaos, violence and desperation – don’t let that be you.
    As All News Pipeline reported:
    Getting as far away from the large population hubs in America as possible should be looked at as ‘survival rule #1’ as ‘population density’ is one of the most important survival criteria. And with America’s large cities overwhelmingly voting for Hillary Clinton and ‘snowflake’ after ‘cupcake’ having nervous breakdowns recently, finding a place out in the mountains or the country should be a priority for anyone still stuck in the cities or large suburbs. Should chaos strike, would you rather ‘already be where you’re going’ or stuck with 100,000 or more ‘cupcakes’ trying to ‘get away’ from the madness?
    And as SHTF noted last week:
    Places like Baltimore, Detroit, Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia and other cities across the map are still deeply divided often police and race issues. Many have seen serious riots, looting and unrest. These social wedge issues are still being pushed from moneyed political interests, while political divide after the direction of the country has become sharp.
    Dallas, Texas just suspended pension payments for some of its civil servants, a sign that financial insolvency could create an epidemic during the next crisis. Several states, like California, have over promised benefits to state employees in the pension programs, without ever planning to pay for them. If people lose it, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and the whole of the surrounding areas could simply erupt. Similar problems have left Detroit, Michigan and Puerto Rico, the commonwealth island, extremely vulnerable to bankruptcy and economic apocalypse that could contaminate the nation and global within hours.
    If a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, hits the East or Gulf Coast, tens of millions of people could be caught up in traffic, locked in cities without food, and desperate to cling to order and survive. Likewise, if a major earthquake hit the West Coast, millions could be displaced and left without many options. That’s when things turn ugly.
    When these cities break down, you’re going to want to be far away from them, and far from the path of millions exiting them and looking for food, resources… and anything they can take.
    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays… and stay out of harm’s way, whether it be in these disaster zone cities, or any other known risk potential.
    Stay prepped, and stay focused on what may prove to be a difficult time ahead.

    WH refers to a 'Holiday Tree.'

    Tom's Journal.

    Hi  Friends,
        We have a very strong wind blowing all through today that was punishing and twisting the trees in my back yard in a fierce way, and the precipitation all turned into a  huge ice rink on the roads and at the restaurant and stores, today, too.   But I wanted my fav. Omelet today, and needed to shop for some fresh fruit and just a few extra things to tide me over, and then came back home to give thanks for all that God has blessed me with.  I also bought a bottle of  Amaretto, for no special reason, except that it tastes really good on a cold Winter night in the U.P.    Ha!   It also reminds me of those Kringles that the Danish bakers make in S.E. Wisconsin, that are so delicious for breakfast and coffee, and special bakers in Racine, WI., seem to have 'cornered the market,' and risen to fame with their fine baking skills.   So, here is a little back ground for that drink.  

    I hope that I am not repeating myself, too much, on this humble blog,  but I guess my life is simple enough, and I love to write.   Now days, some folks [like me] wonder about making too much money that could be flagged by the evil IRS, so that they can actually take away some of my Gov't/  VA money, etc.   So if I wrote a book and it became 'well received, and popular,' and sold too many copies --- that just might happen to me !!   There is always something in Socialism that holds the hard working man/ or woman,  down  $$$.  Dang !   That is why I always carry an attorney in my back pocket, and he charges me for questions like that, too !!   See what I mean ?   If only we had a fair system, without people like Hillary and Obama -- the same folks who have done  their best to pervert our Justice system, and then the rest of the Liberal, Socialist Dims just follow, like 3 blind mice !   How totally absurd !   BTW,  I want to thank my good friend, Greg L., from IL., who sent this message/ email to me, today,  which I felt compelled to 'cut and paste' for you all today.   he knows me fairly well, and also sends lots of jokes, and news worthy email, to entertain me and bolster me up/  keep me in good spirits.   We don't agree on everything,  but mostly everything important, such as:   "Jesus is Lord."  He was in the U.S. Navy for a long time, so I call him my "Vet Brother."   

    Word Origin and History for amaretto


    Italian almond-flavored liqueur, 1945 (the original brand, Amaretto di Saronno, dates to 1851), from the Italian word for almond (q.v.), which did not acquire the excrescent -l- of the English word. Sometimes confused with amoretto. Amoroso (literally "lover"), a type of sweetened sherry, is

    I have also told you all, that I love to call my aging Mom, in Burlington, WI., often, like almost every day to hear her voice.   She is suffering from Dementia, and Alsziemers'  disorder, but she still know me.   I feel guilty that I don't drive for 4 hours to see her more often, and now the  roads will be more slippery to drive on.....   See,  I told you that my name is:   "Terrible Tom  !"  But people just laugh when I tell them that.    Hummmmm, now I got the wheels in my head turning and thinking about a possible run down to see Mom.... Hummmm...   I guess, if there is a will -- there is a way.  

    I do have a plan for the following few months, at least..  yes, a 'Game Plan !'   I sure wish that I had a partner or friend to make the trip with me, as it would be so much more fun and exciting, personal.  
         But,  just as I discussed today with my Mom,  we are not going to FIND many Christian, honest, truthful, gentle women out there anymore !!  Nor men,  either.   People in this old, dying world, are mostly "Takers" --- not givers, and maybe that is how they survive, and WILL survive, in the future, when/ were men and women become more animalistic without the H.S. -- Holy Spirit, to guide them anymore.    And it's really selfishness and "willful ignorance."  
         You see, friends,  I have heard it said too many times, that people DON'T WANT TO LEARN ABOUT THE BIBLE,  as they THINK that somehow they won't suffer, or be Judged by God,  because they resist and remain unlearned, uneducated, unversed in the KJV Bible.   But God KNOWS THE HEART of men, and they will be divided in to just 2 classes of people:   Saved by the blood of Jesus,   and NOT Saved.   And also,  many folks believe that they should get Saved,  but do nothing for the Lord after that, not even lift a finger to do the Kingdom work of sharing in the  Gospel sharing work....   I admit that I am a sinner -- but I still do share in that teaching/ sharing ministry, in a few ways.

    Right now,  I am getting worried again, gaining too much weight in the Winter, having trouble walking far, and short of breath,  and so I pray harder.   
         One of my good friends, and brothers in combat with the same Helicopter Company in Vietnam,  Walter E. Weber,  [some say the best door gunner, in our Platoon, or even Company]   ---died about a year ago [I prob. don't have the correct day/ month/ year, right.  But his lovely wife, "M", is alone now ---- way far East of me, and we visit sometimes on the phone, although she is too young for me....  and I don't smoke....    What I am trying to say is:   That people MY age, especially Vietnam Vets are dropping like flies in a mist of Raid spray , or in the shadow of the fly swatter !!   And that fact just gets me to wondering, too.    I know this sounds very stupid,  but I wanted to be married to a kind, smart, loving woman, so I could leave most of my Chrysler, and VA Benefits to her, and my kids. ******** --Some of this argument was 'redacted' so I would not start another argument,  rehashing some old crap ******....  sorry.  
              God must have His reasons and some folks wonder if God was trying to "Save me" from a sour, destructive contract !   Or, as my good son,. Andy used to say,  "Dad,  cut your losses!"  
          Sorry to rehash all that crap again,  but in this way, I am getting things sorted out in my own mind.     I sure as hell don't want to repeat the same mistakes again.

     Now,  down below, the man says:   " A little sanity please...   Only hope we find God again before it's too late !" 
          OK,  the trouble is, that the man didn't study his Bible !!  We ARE in the 'Last Days' right now !!   And we cannot turn them back, slow them down, nor compete with,  nor alter  God's Plan and Judgment....  much of  the same way God Judged Sodom and Gomorrah !!    You see, we have even lost sight of our role in life and History, and God's written Word, the KJV Bible !    Here is the formula of how it all will 'go down' in God's eye's:   There is a special NUMBER of humans that will be Raptured up ---- a Number that only God knows [and right now, Jesus Christ, knows too, at this stage of the game].   That "Number" of men and women is destined to inhabit the golden city above the earth -- the "New Heavens," and we even know the physical dimensions !!   See:  Rev.   So no matter who says what, or how many books people write to sell and make more money,  God does have His Plan in order,  and nothing in the Universe can alter His Plan by one second or inch !   And all of OUR human plans ought to be "built around" God's plans !   Simple as pie.   Got it !?

     I just don't know or understand WHY most people on earth are too proud, too lazy or too stupid to just PICK UP THE BIBLE AND READ THE WORDS ?!?   I did it, and I am just an average man.   I am really living for one main, special purpose, and you should be, too.


    Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

    Proverbs 26:3

    A whip is for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the back of fools.

    Adam Clarke Commentary

    A whip for the horse - Correction is as suitable to a fool, as a whip is for a horse, or a bridle for an ass.

    "A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, And a rod for the back of fools.
    Answer not a fool according to his folly, Lest thou also be like unto him.
    Answer a fool according to his folly, Lest he be wise in his own conceit.
    He that sendeth a message by a fool cutteth off his own feet, and drinketh in damage.
    The legs of the lame hang loose, So is a parable in the mouth of fools.
    As one that bindeth a stone in a sling, So is he that giveth honor to a fool.
    As a thorn that goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, So is a parable in the mouth of fools.
    As an archer that woundeth all, So is he that hireth a fool and he that hireth them that pass by.
    As a dog that returneth to his vomit, So is a fool that repeateth his folly.
    Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him."
    Here we have a variation in Proverbs, a collection of verses regarding a single subject. The subject here is fools. Apparently Hezekiah's men, who sought out these proverbs from the writings of Solomon (Proverbs 25:1), decided to classify them!
    This subject was apparently one of Solomon's favorites, We have already discussed this subject under the following verses: Proverbs 10:8,13,14,23; 12:1,8,15,23; 13:15,16; 14:6,7,8,15,16,18,24,33; 15:7,14,21; 17:10,12,24.[2] See our comments under those references. These verses are all in the same spirit of detestation of fools as are all the others.
    Proverbs 26:4 and Proverbs 26:5 should not be viewed as a contradiction, but as a statement that one's answer 

    Guess who is showing his "True Colors" now,  and will continue to do dirt to America to the very end.   Now you know that Barry has a black heart and hates Christianity,  big time !!   You can take this anyway you like !

    Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for
    the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Steven Levy, to
    present this piece which I would like to share
    with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to

    A little sanity please...

    Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late!!

    The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday
    Morning Commentary.

    My confession:

    I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think
    Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people
    who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I
    have no idea where the concept came from,
    that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the
    Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...

    Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we
    should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we
    understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there
    are a lot of us who are wondering where
    these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

    In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a
    little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's
    intended to get you thinking.
    In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I
    think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body
    found a few years ago) complained she didn't
    want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better
    not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou
    shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

    Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when
    they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we
    might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said
    an expert should know what he's talking
    about.. And we said okay..

    Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they
    don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill
    strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

    Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.
    I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

    Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the
    world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but
    question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail
    and they spread like wildfire, but when
    you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about
    sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely
    through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the
    school and workplace.

    Are you laughing yet?

    Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on
    your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they
    will think of you for sending it.

    Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than
    what God thinks of us.

    *Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good
    fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference*
