    No, its is not synonymous, kings are not divine, they are not always right, governments follow political agenda, if you cannot see that difference, you are truly blinded. That argument is a fallacy of logic given your stance of atheistic belief, which you should know.

    History stands behind why our forefathers came to America, that stands as a foundation of faith and who we were and why we created the system of government we did. It is in the founding documents, 15,000 references to the bible in the founding fathers notes on the constitution and carved into the government buildings.

    To leave principles, ethics, morals out of government is to have a system that is as now falling apart with corruption within. There are absolute right and wrongs, good and evil and as such I do promote a particular brand of belief towards governance as our founders did incorporate such Judaic Christian principles in writing to our country’s founding. Those principles allow for the freedom to choose and practice, your stance is to restrict certain practice of religion.

    Your last statement is extremely hypocritical and shows why their is a freedom of religion clause in the constitution. If that team wants to say a prayer, they have the constitutional right to say a prayer if they choose and want to without impedance by government, that that right is God given so that government, the courts or you cannot dictate otherwise.

    Freedom of speech and freedom of religion were important doctrines of the constitution, not the separation which came in a political activist supreme court decision in 1943.
    Our forefathers left Europe because governments there were doing exactly this, limiting the ability to practice their faith. Governments were placing their law higher to the ethical laws of divine right. It is why the bill of Rights and constitution state that these laws are God given rights, not government given because government can then take them away.
    The revolution for The United States was driven by a Christian evangelical movement that pushed Gods law above kings law.

    Frankly, there needs to be another rebellion against such court rulings as they violate the very foundation of our constitution and are taking the freedoms and rights that made this country so great away. People need to start standing up for their God given rights, if we forget we are a nation under God, then we are a nation gone under.

    I am one of those IT persons with 20 years of experience that went back to school and got the degree because it was the major excuse for not hiring and guess what… still cannot get hired.
    The degree did fill some knowledge holes but in the end, it really was not about a degree. There are plenty of qualified workers out there. What the employers are really looking for is cheap young labor. Not wanting to pay the higher wages, they are looking to immigration through insourcing and immigration.
    With unemployment numbers so large, this is a statistical manner to spin away the core issue and place blame away from those responsible for it.

    The article notes there are 4.8 million jobs available yet there are over 100 million unemployed.
    So there IS a “lack of jobs” problem. As for that lack of qualified workers…

    Employers are reporting a lack of skills. The majority of unemployed are over 40 years of age and employers are looking for long term employees ( younger) who don’t have health issues that can drive up insurance cost. In that 100 million unemployed, there are plenty of qualified workers but none that meet the “qualifications” I just noted due to government interference in matching employer cost as well a discrimination towards older workers looking for positions.

    Add to such “Insourcing” where tech firms are firing long term “qualified” employees and getting special permits to bring in cheaper workers from countries like India by paying off the Obama administration for such immigration permits.
    http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/tech-decision-maker/whats-behind-enterprise-insourcing-of-it/

    Guess if you are a CEO standing in support of Obama and greasing the politicians palms, it is easy to do so and than have those same politicians and CEO’s blame the workforce for their woes.

    Calling BS again on this. Plenty of qualified workers, between corrupt immigration policies by government, lying on the job statistics and corporate leadership looking to cut cost at the expense of the local community and middle class, Americans are taking it on the chin.

    Absolutely this is no blunder. There is a two part reason to this.
    For many politicians, this becomes an example of not letting a “good” disaster be taken advantage of. Further laws, civil and military martial law, those that want power see this as an opportunity. THAT is why our borders are open right now.

    Second, there are unseen handlers behind those in power that have a very evil agenda. This is unfortunately meant to be. Those that are pulling such strings do so to take down the “great experiment”. They do not have the interest of the citizens at heart, only power and self fortune. This is the future of past foretold prophecies. Those fighting in the middle east are working openly towards this goal.

    The United States faces it’s next Harbinger in 2015 on el ul 29.

    In Columbus OH, popping your fingers out like a gun will get you suspended for having a deadly weapon in school.

    Who knows, with two fingers up with the gun gesture double barrel shot gun which could warrant a swat team being called in and third finger cocked back could be a grenade launcher in which case the school system might have to call the national guard in to handle the situation.

    I am waiting for the day they outlaw pencils and pens in schools because they could be used to stab with. Paper, problem with paper cuts. Books might have to be outlawed as well because thrown, they are almost like bricks. Computers are problems because of cyber warfare, those will eventually have to go and then when the humanist realize the worst danger is people, the problem finally goes away as they outlaw themselves.

    In the last six months a majority percentage of Christians have been killed in the middle east. http://www.shoebat.com is covering the killings daily and they do have video as well pictures but I don’t recommend the site be seen by children as the Islamist attacks are show quite graphically.

    The Israel UN representative put forth a UN announcement on this being a Christian holocaust but the mainstream media has not said a word.

    With the Obama administration funding the Muslim Brotherhood, a large percentage of these killings has been funded by the US.
    Saudia Arabai has also broken away diplomatically with the US and the politics for that region have been turn 180 degrees by the Obama administration. Arab Spring replaced neutral leadership with extreme Islam and the consequences have been deadly for all sides. Again with no mainstream media coverage.

    Given the administrations take on chiding Israel for their actions on Gaza and Kerry’s inept negotiations supporting Hamas, I have to really question the loyalty of President Obama. He absolutely has not fulfilled his oath of office in the best interest of the United States and he has actions have directly resulted in a huge number of deaths in the middle east.

    That blood falls squarely on his and his handlers hands and to those who support and turn a blind eye away from this.

    I really liked Ariel Sharon but thought he had made a terrible mistake signing over that land at that time. He was under such political pressure but he should have turned to God’s covenant with Israel.
    He instead looked to the international community. I hope that Israel has learned by that mistake given their push now, it seems so. Although it seems much of the rest of the world minds’ are clouded.

    I hate to say but I also believe the US is headed for a biblical harbinger the next year. I believe Jonathan Cahn correctly called it, as to the judgement in store for the US, as it has stepped away from its divine founding and now currently falters in it’s support of Israel.

    Reagan was right when he said “If we forget we are a nation under God, then we are a nation gone under”.

    It truly pains me to see others not clearly see the ethical implications of what is occurring. As in the past, there will be a reckoning for such.

    I stand with Israel.

    It is interesting that people just like her protested the United States helping Britain against the Nazi’s in WWII. A huge amount of Germans were being killed when Britain fought back against them, much more that British people being killed. With her same logic, how dare we help Britain win against the Nazi’s in WWII. Hitler should have been able to rule London and eventually the world with her mindset.
    Who she supports now tried to annihilate Jews. So I have no problem calling her out as such. Something she may even be proud to admit.

    This is not a numbers game, this is a theological war. Hamas believes in Genocide of the Jewish state. The Palestinian charter of government calls for the annihilation of Israel. That is not just and as long as they are practicing such blind hatred and attacking, Israel has every just right to wipe them out. All of them if that is what it takes to stop the attacks against them.

    Israel has offered a peace treaty, given up land in return for peace and then now is being attacked from the very land they gave up with Palestine for peace. Launching rockets is not peaceful, look up on Wiki just how many rockets are launched EVERY year from them into Israel.

    Israel has the right to exist, people have the right to live in peace and defend themselves from this satanic Hamas Islamic movement.

    There are over 100 million unemployed, most without those benefits that are suppose to be keeping them fat and lazy at home.
    Part of the problem is that the economy does not support those due to the government interference on the job numbers.
    As for finding good people, there are plenty out there, but most recruiters are not willing to hire people who are over the age of 40, which cuts out a huge number of “qualified ethical hard working” people from that employment pool.
    Many of those older workers who have lost jobs have also lost their homes in foreclosure and their credit ratings are trashed. Another red flag against hiring “good” people especially in middle management.
    Many of those older unemployed works one job for over a decade and again, working at one place for over 5 years is now considered a negative factor in hiring people in modern HR departments.
    Have a health problem, that raises insurance, another red flag for 90% of people over age 45.
    Fired due to the economy?, Another red flag, even if it was not your fault for firing.
    Unemployed for over 6 months, another red flag for those looking for a job.

    I went back to college after loosing my job in IT for 20 years. Held a 3.83 and at almost age 50, have heard all of the above excuses as well that at my age most cannot adapt to the “modern” work place. Calling BS on the can’t find good people. They are more than out there, a huge pool of great desperate workers that cannot finds a jobs that are looking.

    It is quite possible that an Iranian group may have attacked and taken the soldier hostage. Iran is known to be supplying Hamas as well training their organization and does not want this to end. That is a real problem for Hamas if they want to stop because things may go out of control for them.

    There are several terrorist factions in play. Hamas in fact started this most likely to keep control over other violent factions in Gaza. Hamas looses face by even admitting they don’t have control of this, which tells me that it is possible they are telling the truth about this incident. Or, they are again trying to stall for a cease fire to restrengthen themselves before another attack.

    The problem with a group like this is that their explicit goal to annihilate Israel means that even if they try to stop for a peaceful settlement, too many other outsiders are not going to want that to happen. That leaves almost no option left for Israel but to complete destroy the opposition or take heavy casualties in order to halt the violence. Hamas would have to have an unconditional surrender and that is some thing their ego will never allow for and that too many other factions would make a logistical impossibility to achieve. It turns into a vicious cycle that demands an extreme capitulation from either side.

    I feel terrible for Israel because they are faced with an almost impossible task either way, a very evil manipulation by interest outside of Israel and Gaza.

    Christians stand for valuing life. The bible did not say not to kill but not to murder, an unjustified killing. Christians stand up for righteousness and are allowed to defend against tyranny.
    The Christian faith is founded on the Torah/Old Testament. Jesus was born a Jew, lived as THE rabbi and died King of the Jews. The difference between Judaic faith and Christian faith is that as Christians we believe Jesus to be the messiah. Jesus noted he was here not to change a jot or tittle of his fathers words.

    Hamas is founded on blind hate, their religion denies the ability of freewill and opposes our foundations of liberty. Hamas has attacked Israel and Israel has every right to defend itself. It is why Islam hates the US so much.

    Your argument is blind to the realities that one must oppose evil. It is the same arguments that stalled the US from entering WWII until great injustices had already been imposed and we ourselves had to be attacked before taking the blinders off.

    Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat the mistakes of history.

    I believe and want the US to abide by our constitution as well. I want those same principles and values to spread to the rest of the world as I believe those founding principles are just and righteous.
    Our country was founded upon Christian Judaic principles. While Israel does not have the same government structure, the principles it is founded upon are the same and righteous.
    To close our eyes to their enemies is to embolden ours. We cannot be isolationist as this administration has proven through it’s geopolitical policies.
    We as a nation have to stand up with any nation that shares our values and support them and Israel is surrounded by the very theocracies that oppose us. Especially in a world that is growing more militant and taking steps against our nation and it’s values.
    Whether you like it or not, not taking a stand for Israel is not taking a stand for all that America stands for. I stand for Israel.

    There are unseen hands behind the seen in Washington that are not loyal to Israel or the US. It is a world wide agenda and that is why our leaders do not follow the interest of the citizens but rather their own goals and power struggles.
    It is why you are seeing a rise in antisemitic protest and in the US anti Christian laws and government separation policy. This is not a wacko conspiracy theory, it is a agenda unfolding before us and because people don’t want to believe our government could do so, they bury their heads to what is happening around us.
    If people do not pull the blinders off, the future will be a very bleak and violent one of biblical proportions in prophecy.
    An ad like this should never have to be run, but our society has turned away from the ethics and principles that had made this nation so grand. Now we are reaping the results of turning away from justice truth and the American way.

    Actually, it is not bad marksmanship, it is the fact Israel has God on their side:
    ‘Their God changes path of rockets in mid-air’
    Terrorist said to marvel at Israel’s supernatural protection

    Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/their-god-changes-path-of-rockets-in-mid-air/#lMyBYQ2oCtHHekaZ.99

    This frustration is the same frustration felt by many terrorist and it is discussed by Walid Shoebat, a Palestine terrorist turn Christian in several of his books on the middle east situation.
    Google Yom Kippur War miracles about similar acts.
    Think about how much against all odds Israel became a nation, their fight to stand as a nation and the odds to do so.

    I stand with Israel and THE one true God stands with Israel.

  • [13] July 28, 2014 at 9:54pm

    You want to see how bad it is, how gruesome it is?
    Go to http://www.shoebat.com and look at the pictures and videos coming out of Syria, Iraq and other areas.
    It is biblical as to the extent the murdering of Christians and antisemitism in the middle east and non of the US media is covering it at all. Top the point of being satanic in nature that no one else is reporting it.

    Nice that George Will can say I want government to force 20 kids on every county in the US. That is a heck of an expense. If George Will wants to do so, why not have George will and his cronies pay for every one of those kids instead of forcing taxpayers to pay that expense.
    On top of your social engineering will, have you thought of the fact we cannot offer jobs to the people already in this country? That it forces the same number of people elsewhere on social welfare. Or that once such a policy is allowed, the flow of people does not stop?
    Great that George will can speak from his elitist tower and have the money to not have to worry about the problems this creates for everyone else.
    His hypocritical look down attitude needs a piece of humble pie.

    True love is the unconditional act of sacrificing something of yourself for someone else. Giving what you would otherwise use for yourself to another. In a relationship, if two people do this without reserve, it is an incredible experience.

    In our western culture, we tend to think of it as a feeling. A noun describing how we react to someone on an emotional basis. Biblical, it is a verb, an action. Something we actually do committing ourselves in act to one and other through acts of physical, emotional, mental and giving without expecting anything back in return.

    In my own life experiences, pure love in a relationship is almost impossible to find. It is a saintly life to be able to sacrifice for one and another thinking of them first before yourself and it is the opposite of what western culture teaches in a me first mentality society. For most people, its is a balancing act of self needs to another needs and being human, quite understandable. Trying to live a life as such with limited resources and someone else who does not reciprocate back can be heartbreaking and frustrating at times but then, that love is not being unconditional from the givers standpoint because they are expecting something back. I hope that in life everyone finds some example of such pure love, I have found mine in the bible, but I seek it elsewhere in life as well. You do see it occasionally in real life, good parenting, a great loving relationship in marriage, strong friendship
