Chechen terrorists, the Tsarnaev brothers could have been deported the moment it was known that they returned to the country from which they sought asylum or when Tamerlan was arrested and convicted for domestic violence in 2009. Neither brother was given the boot.
Fast forward to May 14, 2013 where the Romeike family of Germany home schoolers are denied asylum by Barack Obama, and his twiddling twin Eric Holder, then the Sixth District Court of Appeals upholds the Obama Administration’s decision.
Injustice, absurdity, incongruity and perversity are just a few of the words that can be used to describe the nonsense of the aforementioned. Bombers are in, but good parents who are raising kids with world-class intelligence that soars above anything coming out of public schools, are given the boot back to Germany.
The arguments that rage between liberals and conservatives were at one time only slight political disturbances that could be hashed out between men and women that loved America, and would, after some debate, buckle down and do what was right for the country, in the spirit of bi-partisanship? That day is all but gone.
Now the same government that wants to wrap up all the guns in the nation and drop them into a place where oceanic reefs can start to grow on them, has successfully kept secret all the inner workings of the most deadly and stupid gun running scheme in U.S. history called ‘Fast and Furious.’ More than absurdity, that immense boondoggle cost Americans their lives.
Benghazi comes in next on the great three-ring line up and culpability and responsibility are effectively being blown off by Obama and on down to the lowest echelons of our nation’s best prevaricators. The death toll for Americans has risen, not just in war or acts of terror, but by pure dumbfounding acts of absurdity.
As late as May 14, 2013 Press Secretary Jay Carney was found using the word tragedy to describe Benghazi. Perhaps a terrorist attack is a tragedy but an order to ‘stand down’ after a call for help went out, coming from the commander-in-chief or any of his subordinates is not a tragedy. It is an actionable decision that has repercussions and responsibilities firmly riveted all over it. Tragedy no - absurdity yes!
Looming, creeping but steadily approaching, is the stealthy but deadly snake in the grass, we call Obamacare.
One of the greatest teachings of the Bible is a theme that some of the best have used for centuries. It comes from the Apostle Paul and is found in the book of Romans.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8: 28)
Some people argue that this verse and the principle contained in it only work for those who “love God.” No one lives in an isolated world and what happens to lovers of God affects the rest of the world, and the same is true of unbelievers.
The point is that, if the world or more specifically those in this country will not take heed to the moral decline that is all around us, there is one eye opener that believer and unbeliever alike cannot dismiss. When the pocketbook is hit hard enough, it can send shock all the way to the brain, if not the heart and soul of a people.
Mr. Obama’s endless excursions to the back green and Michele’s extravagant vacationing will all get a pass until the cupboard runs dry for the rest of America.
Obamacare, failed green schemes, economic bailouts and general mishandling of the nation’s treasury will result in a reversal for our pop-culture prez quicker than any attack, scandal or controversy. Not even the Teflon President can escape the principle of Romans 8: 28.
Until the great fiscal crash of our time arrives in full strength we may have to endure yet more absurdities.
The militant wing of Obamacare, the IRS, is already under pressure for its role in targeting conservative and Tea Party organizations. Franklin Graham, son of Evangelist Billy Graham was targeted by IRS hawks making it abundantly clear that Christian organizations are clearly seen as a threat to the liberal agenda. Obama is shocked by the scandal and knew nothing about it. Perhaps - but would he have cared if he did know - in an election year?
The other military (under the Pentagon) has opened up to pink power while fending off those filthy mouthed and dangerous Christian witnesses and gospel preachers.
Pot smoking in public is OK in two new states so liberals can at least sleep and snack more, thus freeing up time for patriots and conservatives to save what little may be left of America.
Barack asked God to bless Planned Parenthood at the same time Kermit Gosnell was on trial for brutally murdering babies in Pennsylvania. Moral absurdity seems the most obvious here, but not to Barack Obama.
Absurdities make for exuberant and heightened conversation and debate, but when there is no money for bare essentials the rap will dry up instantly The ‘good’ according to Romans 8: 28, (an awakening of conscience) will then start to come forth like the squeezing of the lemon, so sour - but so necessary.
