The Tragedy Of It All

As I reflect on the tragedy of the shootings of the kids and adults in that small Connecticut town everything in me cries out “OH God How Can This Happen” My thoughts turn to my grandkids, and as I looked at them I wondered how anybody could take the life of such innocence. I just wanted to hug and hug my grandkids. I thanked God for the protection that He, in His amazing Grace, provides for them.

It bothers me that as soon as this tragedy was reported all you could see and read on twitter, Face Book, and the internet was pro gun views and anti gun views. Give me a break. This is the time for mourning and praying for the people who lost loved ones in this tragedy not the time for debates for or against gun control. Obama in a round about way in his speech yesterday, about the tragedy, hinted about gun control without using the words. I am and always will be for people having the right to own their own gun and even carry them. I own several. But now is not the time for the debate on guns.

We will hear of people wanting new laws to deal with this tragedy when we already have a law to deal with it. “THOU SHALL NOT KILL” That law has been on the books for  thousands of years. A Christian can see the problem in a minute. We are living in a Godless country and a Godless world. I never heard once when I was growing up, of mass murders in our schools, our courthouses, or other government buildings, when Christ was allowed inside. When the Bible and prayer were used to start the day in schools and in our courtrooms. When our country and its leaders communicated with God on a daily bases these things did not happen. Now we have violent games kids play on the internet and their game boxes, with out of touch parents promoting it.

So it makes no difference if people have guns or do not have guns the problem is this nation has turned its back on God and now we want to blame everything and everybody under the sun for what has happened. Some will even blame God. The blame is with the nation as a whole. America has rejected God. You cannot build a safe house to live in without the proper tools and a good carpenter.

Let us, as a nation,  put our arms of love around the people who have lost loved ones in this tragedy and pray for them. Leave the debates for later!

Obama's Shadow Government

By Charles Krauthammer I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to…



The man charged with shooting five co-workers at a Maryland granite company this week, killing three of them, is a felon with dozens of arrests and a history of attacking people he worked with. With such a troubled past, how was Radee Prince able to land a decent-paying job and acquire a gun?
The alleged gunman got jobs, handguns and who knows what else despite his long criminal past and workplace violence charges and they are saying It appears he may have slipped through the cracks of the criminal justice system. I think he did not slip through any cracks; the courts just open the door for him and let him walk out. Since the shooting, at least two local officials have questioned whether he should have been out on the street. Well, that is a no-brainer!
WHAT HAS THE MAN BEEN ARRESTED FOR? Prince had more than 42 arrests in Delaware. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN HE HAD FORTY TWO ARREST IN DELAWARE ALONE, and there were several more arrest in Maryland and Washington. In 2003, he…
