America - with our e pluribus unum motto (which is sort of translated: one though many) - seems to have always been a motley combination of a bunch of people..... no two of which could ever agree completely on everything.
Our United States history is rife and reeking with tragic accounts of catholics hating protestants and thus protestants hating catholics, jews hating both, both hating jews, blacks hating whites and whites hating blacks, women hating men and men hating women, homoqueers hating heterostraights and heterostraights hating homoqueers, atheists hating Christians and Christians hating atheists, Southerners hating Northerners and Northerners hating Southerners, renters hating landlords and landlords hating renters, mischiefmakers hating cops and cops hating mischiefmakers, for-peace doves hating for-war hawks and hawks hating doves, employees hating employers and employers hating employees, buyers hating sellers and sellers hating buyers, bicyclists hating motorists and motorists hating bicyclers, unionists hating free labor and free labor hating unionists, democrats hating republicans and republicans hating democrats, evolutionists hating creationists and creationists hating evolutionists, abortionists hating prolifers and prolifers hating abortionists, teetotalers hating imbibers and imbibers hating teetotalers, genocidal suicide-bomber islamic hating Zionists Jews and Christians and Zionist Jews and Christians hating genocidal suicide-bomber islamic, and hijab-attired fundamentalist muslim ladies hating infidel summertime-exhibitionist playgirls and infidel summertime-exhibitionist playgirls hating shawled-and-robed fundamentalist muslim ladies.
The list goes on and on, obviously.
And yet, Obama meticulously fantasizes with televangelistic fervor and mass euphoric effect about such diametrically-opposed-to-each-other coexisting together peacefully with loving dialog in unity.......without a realistic common purpose.........(with an antisemitic-nazi-like demonizing against Jewish-like-scapegoat George Bush, his administration, and his supporters)........without a practical cause to rally around........without an umpire with enough force of power and breadth of wisdom to persuade, convince, direct and integrate such.
To "have confidence in confidence alone" is a nonsensical childish limerick fit for a never-never-land Julie-Andrews fairy tale, but it simply does not work in real life. On many and most issues involving controversy, people have their minds legalistically, presumptuously, superstitiously, narrow-mindedly, and close-mindedly made up......and will not change, be changed, nor be convinced otherwise - no matter what.
If they are induced and seduced into change, destruction of what has been carefully and wisely established without existence of immediately implementable and viable alternatives supposedly better than what was before merely ends up in resourceless devastation, disasterous anarchy, and self-destructive chaos.
Evangelical religious conservatives even bicker among themselves as to the ultimate basis for sin atonement pertaining to the precise factor causing justification and salvation. Some argue sins are atoned for and sinners are justified by faith, not works. Others insist that they are justified by works, not faith alone. Some assert that baptism saves them by baptismal remission of sins. Reformed evangelicals claim they are saved by them believing in Christ as their Lord and Master, or sins are atoned for by them accepting Jesus as their personal Savior. Some anglicans and catholics self-atone for themselves by them postulating postponing-righteous-living purgatorial mythology, hiding behind the twisted Mother-rules-heresy skirts of She-makes-up-for-my-immoral-unvirginity maryolatry, and/or offering knees-bowed cross-their-hearts eucharistic sacrifice back to God weekly. Many trust their ticket into heaven is in charitable giving, community service, volunteerism, sports achievement, philanthropy, cleanliness, tolerance in maliciously and hypocritically not tolerating the intolerant, or rigidly-disciplined deprivatory self-impoverishment.
NONE of the above any PERSON does ever absolves anyone of their sins, even though some of the above are indirectly related to redemptive justification and expiational salvation. True and genuine atonement against sins is ONLY due to..........well........
We do see some unity in the American plethoria of endlessly mixed-up variety, some cooperation to function more or less together in similar purpose, plan, and action. What is the basis of that? Individual greed or selfishness concocting and conniving in timely seizure of opportunities? Self-preservation within a dog-eat-dog world of survival of the fittest? Mere circumstantial chance of fortune for some but not so much for others? Acquiring shrewdness to overpower others by learning the pseudo-sacred knowledge of accredited heresies and wiki-intricacies of diplomacized attack, retreat, and survival dirty tricks in Scripture-censored pseudo-"educational" institutions or total immersion into quasi-scholarly books-and-web-based bravados?
Some have compared the irreconcilability of the opposite-headed trapped in freedom-for-everyone, liberty-for-all democrazy with the phenomenon of oil and water never mixing. Others have compared it to the obnoxiously-putrid pollution of mixing piss with pop and poop with pudding.
And Obama impassionately and relentlessly orates that such can coexist together with enough dialog in self-initiated understanding and self-originated humanistic benevolence?
So what is the secret of America's Founding Fathers being able to fabricate mutually-signed documents together....and which ACLU-disallowed Secret not "legally" mentionable in public government nor public schools yet holds much within America together?
Shall we give credit to our ancient ancestral mother Hillary (or was it Eve?), who in pretend-to-be-like-God presumed-she-knew-more-than-God feminist disobedience did the deed that plunged all future progenie into a lurid and miserable legacy of inhumane and ruthless terror, confusion, misunderstanding, apprehension, garnished-wages over-taxation poverty, suffering, disease, pain, disappointment, heartache, bitterness, and death?
If Obama himself is realistically and practically not capable himself of inspiring to rectification the incessantly-evil-minded many on the broad and easy road to destruction, nor able to cause to do dialog with mutual patience and understanding those who have absolutely no intention whatsoever now or later of dialoging with mutual patience and understanding, how in the duce is he ever going to cause everyone to get together into one big happy family and coexist together in no-war-no-more peaceful and cooperative unity? The imposed tyranny of concentration-like work farms and projects for both noncooperating and out-of-normality enterpreneurs reminds the intelligently astute of a mid-19th-century holocaustic horror most would very much like to keep quite forgotten.
Will he specifically direct people toward The Secret of What Has Kept America Together As Much As They Have Kept Together:
Ex 3:6 And he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob."
Ex 15:26 saying, "If you will diligently respond to the voice of the LORD your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the LORD, your healer."
Le 19:16 You shall not go up and down as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand forth against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD.
Le 19:18 You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.
Le 19:28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
Le 19:31 "Do not turn to mediums or wizards; do not seek them out, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
Le 19:32? "You shall rise up before the hoary head of John McCain, and honor the face of him, the old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.
Le 23:22 "And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field to its very border, nor shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest; you shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the LORD your God."
Isa 44:24 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: "I am the LORD, who made all things, who stretched out the heavens alone, who spread out the earth--Who was with me?--
Eze 13:9 My hand will be against the prophets who see delusive visions and who give lying divinations; they shall not be in the council of my people, nor be enrolled in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter the land of Israel; and you shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
Eze 39:28 Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God because I sent them into exile among the nations, and then gathered them into their own land. I will leave none of them remaining among the nations any more;
Mt 22:32 'I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not God of the dead, but of the living."
Mt 24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray.
Joh 10:14 I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me,
Joh 10:36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
Joh 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,
Joh 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.
Joh 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
Joh 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
Ac 7:32 'I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob.' And Moses trembled and did not dare to look.
Mt 12:30 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
Lu 11:23 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
Joh 3:31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth belongs to the earth, and of the earth he speaks; he who comes from heaven is above all.
Joh 4:25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things."
Joh 8:47 He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God."
Joh 10:12 He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
Joh 11:27 She said to him, "Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world."
The public exposure and outcry against the so-called "rev" "Jeremiah" Wright (actually: wrong!) in spite of the anarchistic loonies and crazies who support "pastor" Wrong has actually helped Barak Obama by putting Obama under pressure to renounce not only non-Christian "rev" Wright but also a host of purported [black] "reverends" like him.
Pertaining to such so-called black "reverends" - ranging all the way from black-power-promoting, reparations-for-blacks-demanding, damn-America-mentoring Wright, to somewhat-similarly-minded Farrakhan, Marty L. King, and perhaps even Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, Tutu, etc. - the wife frowns on me using the "N-word" to describe such seriously-brown-skinned arrogant trouble-causers who in no way represent the genuine Christianity of humility, kindness, tolerance, love and respect, non-greedy and non-covetous generosity, repentance against personal sinfulness, and redemption by total surrender to Christ with believing acceptance of the Lord's atonement on a cross for all. So I will not label the aforementioned as niggars instead of Negroes, in view of certain admired Hollywood moviestar blacks and Clarence Thomas.
There yet is a question of whether Obama is authentic pertaining to his publicly-pronounced disassociation against (not "with") Wright concerning whether or not Obama is doing such for political expediency. It is difficult to decry a pseudo-clergyman who "officiated" at one's marriage ceremony and "baptized" the kids.
However, as Jesus said: "By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." Barak has in fact denounced Wright, and that denunciation is on permanent record - whether for political advantage or not. Barak could instead have not denounced Wright and then let the political chips fall where they would. Clearly, Obama is too smart for that. And admirably so?
Notice that I am not making much mention of feminist-sexist-supported Hillary Fostergate Clinton. We will let the anti-[women-in-charge-over-men] Scripture of Leviticus 27:1-6, Numbers 30, Ecclesiastes 7:27-28, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, I Cor. 11 and 14:33-38, I Timothy 2:12, and I Peter 3:7 speak for itself.
The other serious issue requiring disclosure is what to do about out-of-control gasoline prices against American consumers. About that much needs to be said, and especially elaborated on by both McCain and Obama.
Every time someone buys a new or used SUV, van, or other gas-guzzling vehicle, he or she is contributing to the high-priced gas problem. Arab oil exporters, American oil companies, refineries, gasoline trucking tankers, and local national service stations do not force people to buy gasoline suckers. Even buying economy subcompact cars is not sufficient, being that low-speed but all-battery electric cars are now very much available within the under-$20,000 price range. (See http://zennelectricars.tripod.com for example).
Building more oil refineries is not the answer. Drilling in Alaska is not the answer.
Conserving gasoline by avoiding vacation trips is not the answer.
Even eliminating federal taxes on gasoline during the summer will only increase demand for and consumption of gas, thus reducing supply, thus causing gas-price inflation, and thus exacerbating global-warming greenhouse effect and noxious pollution. Ethanol/gasoline mixture still requires some gasoline as a motorcar fuel.
Lowering speed limits and strict police enforcement of those lower limits, however, is part of the answer!
Designating the right-hand lanes of highways for slower electric cars is is part of the answer!
Providing heated garages for overnite housing of electric cars and heated garages for daytime enclosure of electric cars at places of employment is part of the answer!
Obviously, Congress must agree on non-partisan specifics legislating immediate construction and production of facilities and commerce regarding photovoltiac solar cells, solar panels, wind turbines, and nuclear-energy plants.
