Two increasingly-devastating situations have occurred over the past few years directly affecting the worsening of joblessness and unemployment.
ONE SITUATION involves Wall Street speculators (a.k.a. gambling brokers and associated "investment" conspirators) gradually bidding up the price of a barrel of oil on Wall Street resulting in sometimes-overnite dime-or-two-per-gallon gas-pump-price inflation against (not "for") common folk across the nation. This cost increase per gallon of gas is getting so severe and getting to be such an accumulating massive financially-depleting expenditure for the average driver throughout America that transport to all sorts of restaurant and clothing plus hardware businesses, entertainment centers, vacation spots, church-related-outing destinations, schools, and so forth....is getting prohibitive resulting in more and more de-patronization to the overall detriment against the national economy.
Such gas-price-increase devastation will of course greatly worsen the overall national debt, cause more and more stores and services to go belly up, and correspondingly exacerbate joblessness and the unemployment situation.
Additional causes of that dire dilemma are, of course, nutcase environmentalists exerting a significant impact on the EPA and Interior Department to not issue licenses for new oil drilling enterprises and tying up construction-permits processing with complex and delayed-processing-time restriction -- particularly by demoncrat whackjob save-"Mother"-Earth kooks heretically idolizing rare and "endangered" species at the anti-Biblical disregard of human value and need:
Matthew 12:12 Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the sabbath."
Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: they neither plant nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!
First Corinthians 9:9 For it is written in the law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain." Is it for oxen that God is concerned?
What animal - O supposedly-whales-and-polar-bears-saving bonehead environmentalists - is on par with:
Psalm 8:3 When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have established;
4 what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You do care for him?
5 Yet You have made him little less than God, and do crown him with glory and honor.
6 You have given him dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet,
7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the sea.
9 Oh LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
[ I was contemplating the possibility of mis-quoting the above passage as follows:
HOCUS-POCUS 1:3 When I look at all which presumably has evolved celestially, the work of random Big-Bang chance, the moon and the stars which magically assembled themselves together all by themselves;
HOCUS-POCUS 1:4 what are humans that scientists deem them so important, and why the lack of funding for interstellar exploration and absence of documented physical extra-terrestial visitation along with reluctance the secretive government searching for or admitting to preparing for discovering alien life in our space program?
HOCUS-POCUS 1:5 There must be myriad galaxies and solar systems up there with relatively-habitable planets around them already supporting hundreds of thousands or even millions and billions of all sorts of probably more-advanced-than-human alien lifeforms....
...but I decided to give that up, until I can use my cellphone camera upon honestly encountering even one UFO, then definitely snapping some sharp non-deniable and non-contested pix and vids at various angles of those UFOs and whatever or whoever controls them....maybe even covertly swiping some advanced-technological item lying around the spaceship or even get a tissue sample ].
For the sake of diehard evolutionist heretics hung-up with pig-headed and narrow-minded insistence do mis-think errantly, the Psalmist's words are re-quoted in the New-Testament book of Hebrews:
Hebrews 2:6 It has been testified somewhere, "What is man that You are mindful of him, and the Son of Man that You do care for him?
Hebrews 2:7 You did make him for a little while lower than the angels, You have crowned him with glory and honor,
Hebrews 2:8 putting everything in subjection under his feet." Now in putting everything in subjection to him, He left nothing outside his control. As it is, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him.
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for every one.
So much for the supposedly supremacy of whales, polar bears, or whatever other "endangered species" supposed to exist on Earth instead of humanity.
Exacerbating such might be political manueverings, shenanigans, and campaign-warchest diversions involved with more-or-less continually jacking up the price of gasoline for the typical consumer at the service-station pumps.
Actually-traitorous state-department and other devious government-official-hierarchy treaties-conniving dealings with OPEC-related foreign-country oil producers and suppliers....particularly those determined to harass and destroy Jews in Israeli territory then steal their Biblically-apportioned territorial boundaries to give away to antisemitic-arab so-called "palestinians"...is another serious problem involved in gas-pump fuel-price increases across the States.
ANOTHER SITUATION involves greedy corporate-building owners constantly raising the lease prices on small-business owners renting space within strip malls, causing newly-beleagered small-business owners to close up shop and leave storefront spots upon storefront spots vacant and non-used in ridiculous ghost-town-reminiscent wastefulness....with frequently-feminist-concocted wrong-headed intention of socialistically planning to tear down relatively-perfect-condition buildings within strip malls and replace them with prison-like association-contracts-controlled senior-housing condos and townhouses....with the communistic-reminiscent presumption that fixed-income non-entreprenurial seniors now dependent upon taxless Social Security checks are no longer useful to taxable city-hall-regulated commerce, which seniors should gradually but heartlessly be forced out of their long-lived-in suburban homes by bureaucratic sexist-incepted-revisionist property-maintenance regulations and fines -- all in the errant supposition that such elderly do not have re-nesting sons or daughters living with and taking care of them, and/or that such sometimes-alone-at-home usually-non-handicapped seniors cannot hire non-offspring private contractors to keep up their property.
Job 24:3 They drive away the donkey of the fatherless; they take the widow's ox for a pledge.
Job 30:12 On my right hand the rabble rise, they drive me forth, they throw up against me their ways of destruction.
Micah 2:9 The women of my people you drive out from their pleasant houses; from their young children you take away my glory for ever.
Such tearing down of rather intact and usable buildings pads the pockets of buddy-buddy building contractors cozy with and paid off with taxpayer funding by diabolical city-hall planners sadistically inventing new taxes apportioned for generally-non-wanted parks-enhancement boondoggle projects...and such absurdity results in closure of sometimes-prosperously-operating small businesses and consequential loss of community commerce while worsening joblessness and unemployment, frequently the result of small businesses being fatefully besieged by jealous inspectors finding some lame and could-have-easily-been-corrected excuse to close them down for not suckholding to feminist-sexist-twit-inspector arrogance.
Ruthlessly, such deviate city and country bureacrats blasphemously presume to usurp the place of God, stealing from the helpless and giving spoils to their own monopolistic cohorts:
Exodus 23:30? Little by little [by fines-for-uncooperation bureaucrat rules and regulations] [we bureaucrats] will drive them out from [the neighborhood], until [we cattle-rustler-types and our buddies] possess the land. Sometimes the local police and sheriff, under the heavy hand of the mayor and other city-hall bureaucrats, enforce eminent-domain tyranny imposed by conniving city-hall and county bureaucrats:
Judges 1:19 And the LORD was with Judah, and he took possession of the hill country, but he could not drive out the inhabitants of the plain, because they had chariots of iron [sometimes called flashing-blue-and-red-strobe-lights squad cars].
Even the city fire department and fire marshall can get involved, but are helpless against the Advocate of the saints:
Deuteronomy 9:3 Know therefore this day that He who goes over before you as a devouring fire is the LORD your God; He will destroy them and subdue them before you; so you shall drive them out, and make them perish quickly, as the LORD has promised you.
Homesteaded and grandfathered-in homeowners and tenants have to prepare beforehand so that they insist on and fight for their constitutional protection and rightful-possession sovereign property rights....or there will be costly and legally-entangling conflict-of-interest trouble:
Numbers 33:55 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those of them whom you let remain shall be as pricks in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall trouble you in the land where you reside.
Psalm 36:11 Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
The LORD often comes to the rescue of oppressed impoverished who belong to Him, and the LORD will turn the tables on socially-insensitive city-hall and county bureaucrat connivers and their diabolical-thug bullyboys and bullygirls:
Jeremiah 24:9 I will make them a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a reproach, a byword, a taunt, and a curse in all the places where I shall drive them.
The recorded account following in effect describes many a modern scenario:
First Kings 21:1 Now Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard in Jezreel, beside the palace of Ahab king of Samaria.
2 And after this Ahab said to Naboth, "Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near my house; and I will give you a better vineyard for it; or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its value in money."
3 But Naboth said to Ahab, "The LORD forbid that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers."
4 And Ahab went into his house vexed and sullen because of what Naboth the Jezreelite had said to him; for he had said, "I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers." And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no food.
5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said to him, "Why is your spirit so vexed that you eat no food?"
6 And he said to her, "Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite, and said to him, 'Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it please you, I will give you another vineyard for it'; and he answered, 'I will not give you my vineyard.'"
7 And Jezebel his wife said to him, "Do you now govern Israel? Get up, and eat bread, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite."
8 So she wrote letters in Ahab's name and sealed them with his seal, and she sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who resided with Naboth in his city.
9 And she wrote in the letters, "Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people;
10 and set two base fellows opposite him, and let them bring a charge against him, saying, 'You have cursed God and the king.' Then take him out, and stone him to death."
11 And the men of his city, the elders and the nobles who resided in his city, did as Jezebel had sent word to them. As it was written in the letters which she had sent to them,
12 they proclaimed a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people.
13 And the two base fellows came in and sat opposite him; and the base fellows brought a charge against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, "Naboth cursed God and the king." So they took him outside the city, and stoned him to death with stones.
14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, "Naboth has been stoned; he is dead."
15 As soon as Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, "Get up, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead."
16 And as soon as Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab arose to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.
17 Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
18 "Get up, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who is in Samaria; hey, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession.
19 And you shall say to him, 'Thus says the LORD, "Have you killed, and also taken possession?"' And you shall say to him, 'Thus says the LORD: "In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your own blood."'
As of the time of this writing (which is approximately one day before the scheduled Friday Government Shutdown), the Obama Administration as hard-headed aggressors is in the lamentable process of "playing chicken" against defensive GOP-House leaders and their constituents. Which one will swerve at the last minute to avoid a disasterous collision...and, if both do collide....which vehicle is intrinsically stronger to accrue less damage?
The impasse essentially boils down to what the religious right have wanted to "come to a head" for a long time: a referendum-equivalent of whether or not Roe-v-Wade should be maintained or instead overturned.
Obama is ordering his democrat Senate and Senate Majority Leader to hold out against GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner and his noble financially-sensible associates, and although some might presume that BHO is the final umpire in the non-resolved government-shutdown dispute, BHO is not so. Instead, the Judeo-Christian Creator God of the Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian Holy Bible is The Ultimate Referee.
Either the LORD supports Planned Parentlessness (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity)....or in stark contrast, He does not. In other words, either the true and living God supports the so-called "family-planning services" of the weaselword-misnamed Planned "Parenthood" -- which ridiculously-purported "reproductive" "services" in effect are actually family-prevention and family-disrupting "reproductive services" roughly equivalent to the atrocities of genocidal "family-planning services" of "reproductively" murdering six million Jews by concentration-camp-oven cremation -- or instead He does not.
IF the Lord does not support the weaselword-satanspeak criminally-sinful shenanigans of Planned "Parenthood", there will be FAR-reaching consequences against BHO, Harry Reid, Planned "Parenthood", and possibly even who and which political party wins the Election of 2012.
IF American voters - in general - detect that the essential one-and-only basic reason for the full-effects-not-yet-fully-experienced looming federal-government-services shutdown (adversely and immediately putting nearly 1,000,000 federal workers and the services they normally provide to millions of Americans for all sorts of things)....is the refusal of demoncrats to sign a misinscule government-shutdown-avoiding budget-cut proposal including eradication of federal funding for Planned Promiscuity, political heads will roll at and perhaps even before the Election of 2012.
IF the continuous "reproductive family-planning" and "woman's/baby's healthcare" mangling of abortion-victim mothers plus murder against non-born womb babies [study the Greek New-Testament Text for Luke 1:41 and Luke 2:16 as to the exactly-identical word: brephos used for both a PRE-born womb baby and an ALREADY-born mangered baby] by the continuing government funding of Planned-"Parenthood" abortion-homicide agenda is THAT important to Americans at large to retain....well...let's see IF that will be the case, in view of the full extent of the resultant consequences!
IF such mangling and murder is NOT that important to fund with government monies, yet Obamination stubbornly holds on to retaining such (against the will of most American voters), I predict that a serious party rift is going to develop between Libyan-war-monguering feminist-sexists-subservient BHO and Reid and his demoncrat abortion-homicide supporters. True, the impact will definitely be completely neutralized if feminist-sexist campaign hierarchy of the GOP [Hannity? Hewitt? Freedomworks? Prager, etc.] makes the same phenomenally-stupid mistake of running Palin or Bachmann for Prez or VP in 2012.
But the general voting public - despite desperate attempts to alleviate the damage by BHO-sympathetic network-news media - is VERY likely to so seriously sour against not only hung-up-to-preserve-abortive "Planned Parenthood" BHO but his demoncrat conspirators (Schumer, Pelosi, Hoyer, Durbin, Reid, even Biden) that they and many of their demoncrat party members will have to look for another job in the near future.
The blame for a no-paychecks-for-our-military-soldiers government shutdown is squarely placed on both BHO and Harry Reid for insisting that the government HAS to continue to specifically fund Planned "Parenthood" because they not only provide abortion-homicide "services" (if you'll pardon the degradation of that word) with "private" funding (a matter of shady internal bookkeeping manipulations)....but also cloak their abortion-murder deviance with questionably-useful, certainly-NOT-mandatory-for-women's health, cancer-screening mammograms (abusing the teets) and blood tests (which, as Senator Kyl pointed out, could be obtained from many other sources other than Planned "Parenthood"), etc.
Let's digress a bit and consider the Judeo-Christian Bible.
Would you compare that Bible to:
a. a traffic light never showing any colors on it
b. a traffic light which always shows only the red color
c. a traffic light which always shows both red and green simultaneously, or
d. a traffic light which sometimes shows red but at other times shows green?
Certainly, there obviously are a plethoria of do's and don'ts all throughout the Bible, thus clearly eliminating possibility "a" above.
The possibility of always showing only "red" can be considered, if only the following verses (and others like them) are exclusively contained within that Bible...with nothing else:
Psalm 103:10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor requite us according to our iniquities.
Matthew 5:39 But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also;
Matthew 5:40 and if any one would sue you and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well;
Luke 6:28 ....bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.
First Thessalonians 5:15 See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.
First Peter 3:9 Do not return evil for evil or reviling for reviling; but on the contrary bless, for to this you have been called, that you may obtain a blessing.
Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord."
[The last verse quoted, however, seems internally contradictory at first glance. How CAN vengeance be God's....when God instructed His people to be like Him, thus never requite, and "never avenge yourselves?"]
How about the possibility showing BOTH red and green lights (i.e. both do's and don'ts pertaining to the same thoughts or actions simultaneously)? That would involve an apparently-contradictory combination perhaps resulting in, if not laughable insanity, then plainly-despicable absurdity.
I won't even much elaborate upon the fourth possibility, because of the questionable difficulty of knowing which: "do" or in contrast: don't do" imperative or admonition to apply in all sorts of different situations, which dilemma has been theologically been given the name: situation ethics. But, just for gits and shiggles, I will give one example:
How many times have you heard apostate heretics (like Prager and a couple of pastors I am acquainted with) mis-interpretively and even blasphemously blatter that the verse:
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
....with their warped and wrongful conclusion that therefore women can now be in charge of men and are even sometimes superior to them, thus completely negating:
Isaiah 3:12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, your leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths. [Such observation by Isaiah is NOT meant to be taken as a promotional advertisement for chauvenistically feminist-sexist and bratty/shrieky-child-tolerance social policy, but instead a lamentable criticism].
Ecclesiastes 7:26 And I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her.
27 Hey, this is what I found, says the Preacher, adding one thing to another to find the sum,
28 which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
Nahum 3:13 Hey, your troops are women in your midst. The gates of your land are wide open to your foes; fire has devoured your bars.
[ NOTE: The previous three Old-Testament passages were cited first to insure that no asinine creep or jerk of either gender convincingly accuses only Saint Paul (in non-justified discrimination) instead of also Isaiah, Solomon, Nahum, and (later on) Saint Peter of: "looking down on, or having a problem with, hindering the assertive self-esteem of, women" ]
First Timothy 2:12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
First Peter 3:7 Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker gender, since you are joint heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.
