Good post Bray. Interesting that silly “Cash for Clunkers”...why don’t the Repubs mention that folly once in a while? Sure is an example of how clueless these people are.
Morning AB....as always thank you for doing this thread, as always, dependably and reliably.
Singing at 10 am mass but am taping all the talk shows.
This morning I ponder this so-called “Knockout Game”.
FIRST....do not let the media call this thing a GAME!!! It’s assault and nothing less. These hoodlums are not tapping people on the shoulder and pretending it wasn’t them. THAT’S A GAME, just to help the media out a bit. Punching people or pushing them so hard as to knock them out is a FELONLY ASSAULT in most normal states.
I predict if this goes on through next week there will be a backlash, a big one. Cause if those thugs think they are going to do around just, boom, assaulting people for no reason but fun.....no human being’s going to take that sitting down. Gun sales are going to soar.
Forgive but I got to say the obvious.....where is Obama? Cause some of these thugs look just like his son if he had one.
There are such things as evil “games.”
I don’t think we should get too hung up over the nomenclature. We agree we don’t want this stuff going on.
We also should know that we need to spend MORE time towards God and less time beholding the evil. Yes, less. Because God already knows what the evil is, and as the heavenly Commander is already ready to send each and every one of His soldier children out on a mission to not just neutralize evil but establish goodness in its place. He doesn’t need our grand tacticians, except to recognize the wisdom of His plan and then obey it.
And here is my humble offering of a clue to how the successful battle will work.
We are in the midst of a battle of heaven versus hell, and people are involved only as far as what they choose. The person who chose hell yesterday may be on the brink of choosing heaven tomorrow. We know the system of exhorting people to do this as evangelism, but we should gladly break the boundaries of our stereotyped ideas of what evangelism is. Evangelism isn’t just sermons in a church, and it’s more than sidewalk ministries. It’s how we make faith in the biblical God appear every day. It’s looking for God to guide in taking advantage of strategic opportunities. We can always successfully address the devil as the Holy Spirit empowers and schedules, whether that means to rest in God or to confront the evil in active battle.
In general, seizing plunder from Satan’s curses into the realm of God’s blessing represents a re-purposing of resources from bad to good. Options for doing this were sharply limited in the Old Testament economy. The gospel greatly opens up the picture; God has made “all foods clean.” There is nothing, not itself a sin, that the enemy used that God cannot use even better. Take courage in this thought when waging the war, and you will think creatively in the vein of the Creator and Redeemer Himself. Turn the control for actually doing it over to the Lord, and watch the successes mount.
The sub-title is Polar Bear Hunting.
MSM are avoiding it because it has a distinct racial component, and not the race of their preference. Notice that the MSM seldom mention the race of the perpetrators and any video is extremely pixelated.
IIRC, some 7 people have died as a direct result of Knockout-type assaults. That makes these incidents murders and attempted murders. State and local LEOs and prosecutors are going to have to step up before this ‘trend’ mushrooms out of control.
This week, I lost count of the number of times King O Himself said "change the rules of the game," and "game changer" in reference to healthcare and his other money waste projects. MSM is simply adopting King O's descriptions of the week.
Knockout is Wilding v6.66. We must remain very aware of our surroundings while in crowded places.
