Hobbits and Helicopters and a Curious Lady

Join me on Wednesday as I welcome back blogger Curious Lady to the show. She has asked to join me to discuss the question of whether or not a Christian should be friends with someone who embraces the homosexual lifestyle. Have an opinion? Call in and share it with us.

In other news I would like to offer my condolences to the friends and families of those who were lost in the downing of the helicopter transporting members of SEAL team 6 and others.

I must also harshly condone the actions of those who revealed that information BEFORE the families of those service members were properly notified. Loose lips sink ships applies to everyone, including the White house.

Whomever leaked this information needs to be jailed. Tell your legislators as much.

I would also like to address Mr. McCain's name calling against the TEA Party. He called us hobbits. He contributed to the msm narrative that the TEA party, instead of screaming from the rooftops(as we were) that raising the debt ceiling was an invitation to the downgrading of the US credit rating, were responsible for it. No sir, the idea was not to create enmity against Mr. Obama, as you would have us believe, but rather to give us some indication that you have an inkling of the amount of debt you and your fellows in Congress are foisting upon generations of Americans as yet unborn. This was not a political ploy, but a command to rein in the uncontrolled spending that has been the rule of the day for far too long.

You engage in political ploys. We live in reality. The reality is that we have no more money to give to taxes. You, Congress and this administration have exceeded your authority by far too much. Authority that is granted and can be rescinded by We the People. We want our credit cards back, sir. You (by which I mean the Congress) clearly need to be cut off from any sources of funding as you have once again demonstrated that, not only do you not respect the Constitutional limits under which you have been placed, but that you have no concept of reality when it comes to spending either. Our status was downgraded because we deserved it and richly so. Not because of the TEA party, sir, but because you and your fellows cannot understand basic math and apparently lack the moral decency to avoid saddling future generations with the burden of supporting our own.

Beyond that, I would like to remind Mr. McCain and the rest of Congress and this administration, that the hobbits were the good guys. You might want to think about that for a bit.

"Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts.
If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?" ~ Proverbs 22:26-27

"Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye." ~ Ezekiel 18:30-32

If we are like hobbits (noble, steadfast and aware of what needs to be done), McCain and his ilk are like the minions of Sarun, traitors more concerned about their own power than the kingdom's well-being and survival.
Sarun fell while Frodo and Sam prevailed. There is no shame in being an everyday person fighting for what it right!
