The Other Tragedy at Ft. Hood, Texas!

It was a tragedy of the first magnitude which took place at Ft. Hood, Texas. Thirteen persons died as a result of a shooting rampage by a Muslim terrorist who wore the uniform of the United States Army. A special service to honor the victims of the shootings was held on November 11, 2009.

The picture below says it all as to the real attitude President Barack Hussein Obama has regarding the flag of the United States of America. Those of us who are older in years were taught to respect the national banner. We held our hands over our hearts when we pledged our allegiance to the republic in our public school years and the flag which is its national banner. We stood at attention when the National Anthem was played and placed right hands over our hearts.

In the U.S.M.C. we were taught to salute when the honor guard passed by carrying the flag such as in a parade. If one was in civilian dress then one stood at attention and placed one’s right hand over the heart.

Notice the posture of the president in the below photo in contrast with the military persons who are standing at attention and saluting as the honor guard passes by with the colors – good example by the “Commander in Chief” (term used very loosely) wouldn’t you say? And notice the gentleman in civilian dress who is standing at attention with hand placed over heart.

What do you suppose his rabid defenders would have to say about this situation? It is very likely they would hail him as a hero in spite of the fact that citizens who do respect the flag and have a sense of decency would consider this a most disgraceful example on such a solemn occasion. But then his devotees share in his “values” and would demonstrate the same posture in such a situation. It is a further indication that the nation has sunk so low that we are going to have to use the Hubble telescope to look up to see the navel of a black snake – yes, black snakes bear their young – they don’t lay eggs as do some reptiles.

It is most fitting and very necessary that prayer be made that Almighty God will do whatever in His infinite power and wisdom is necessary to bring this man and the members of his administration to their knees in repentance soon before the republic is brought to total collapse!!

Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. --- James 5:17, 18
