I Did Not Listen to Obama's Address and Here's Why...!

Obama gave an address, March 28th, in which he attempted to spell out the issue of our involvement in Libya. And remember, this is the man who gave speeches and adamantly opposed G. W. Bush's policy of going into Iraq for the purpose of removing S. Hussein from power. --- documentation on both these matters readily available on the Internet

President Obama gave an address on Monday evening, March 28, 2011, that was devoted to the issue of our involvement in the conflict presently taking place in Libya.

In the first place, I do not believe anything he says these days -- the one exception would be if he told me that the newspaper he is holding in his hand is white with black print -- that I would believe, but only after a close look with my own eyes to make sure he hadn't had it changed to black paper with white print!

In the second place, here is a man totally inexperienced to deal with the vast and critical responsibilities of the United States presidency.

What has he really done by way of preparation? There is absolutely no experience in the real work place by way of serious employment -- that is, holding down a job for a period of time in which one really has to work to make a living and to know how it is with the majority of U. S. citizens who sweat and labor to earn their bread, take care of their families, and provide a roof over their heads.

He has had absolutely no military experience whatsoever and has never known the discipline which starts with day one of basic training, nor really how the chain of command operates when one is in the military. Actually, I would pay money to see him go through Marine Corps boot camp, and if I had the choice, it would be conditions in boot camp at Parris Island when I went through during what was known as the Korean "Police Action" with drill instructors, such as ones I had, who were in the 1st Marine Division when they were surrounded by the Chinese in Korea and fought their way out!

Obama has had no real business experience and as some have observed, not even a slight taste of managing a McDonald's hamburger place! So much for understanding what business is about in a free market society -- or what used to be a free market society in light of growing government intrusion and control under the "leadership" (term used very loosely) of his administration.

What has he done? Well, he has a Harvard law degree and with the proliferation of trial lawyers and the deluge of their advertising to pressure us to sue someone, even if we can only come up with an ingrown toenail for which to blame someone and sue for "money that the law says is rightfully yours!" So the law degree thing is not all that impressive. And there are serious questions raised as to where he got all the money to get that Harvard education as well as attending college before he got that far -- one of many mysteries that surround this person.

And there were the "community organizing" stint and the sitting under the radical and anti-Biblical preaching of Jeremiah Wright for years that took place. And eventually the involvement in Chicago and Illinois politics with election to the legislature and later a seat in the U.S. senate. Politics in that part of our republic makes the traditional Philadelphia PA brand seem like pure honey by comparison!

There are at least 2 solid reasons why this man cannot be successful in his role as president. First, he is a staunch supporter of the practice of destroying unborn children by the thousands every week of the year. His record on past legislation and his statements bear solid witness of that fact. Second, he pressed for and eventually signed legislation lifting the ban on sodomites serving openly in the U.S. military. He is in obvious disagreement with God's view in these areas -- the sacredness of human life and the practice of sodomy being an abomination as God defines it!

Therefore, he is laboring without the blessing of God and such "leadership" results in a dark cloud hanging over our nation, which grows darker with the passing of each day. Barack Obama's counterpart lived centuries ago - a king by the name of Manasseh in the ancient Israelite kingdom of Judah -- note this observation of the man: "Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD." (2 Kings 21:16).

Is there hope in such a dismal circumstance? Yes, but it remains to be seen just how God will work this out -- at this point the preponderance of evidence is pointing to a judgment taking place. If there should be full repentance on the part of all (citizens and leaders, political and church) then the nation would be healed and become stable and secure for the future.

The ultimate hope of course is in the return of Jesus Christ to this planet, taking control of all nations, and ruling in righteousness and truth, thus establishing peace all over the world. In part that hope involves the assurance that all the leaders of the nations of this world will be removed from their positions -- something great to look forward to, is it not? I liken it to a child on Christmas Eve looking forward with a sense of deep excitement and intense expectation -- at least, that is how I view this prospect!

Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" --- Revelation 11:15
