THE ONLY SOLUTION TO OUR NATION’S PROBLEMS

And the only solution to any of our problems!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve never solved a problem in my life, never fixed anything, never got myself out of a jam. Okay, in the year 1999, after I found out that my job and my department were being transferred to the offices of our parent company in Cincinnati, I decided to study computer programming in hopes of getting to stay in Birmingham, instead of having to relocate to a different region in the country. I was an only child and my Mom was aging, and was going to need me to be down here. I took classes, worked hard, and launched a new career. People complimented me, telling me how brave and how smart I was to do something like that.

Just four short years ago, I had grown extremely unhappy with my current job. My short-term memory wasn’t as good as it was when I was younger and the stress was overwhelming. Plus, my department was making sweeping changes that I was not sure I wanted or was able to be a part of. I was scared, and my attitude toward work was bad, something I had never experienced in my life. I decided to “run the numbers” and found that I could live comfortably for a while on my current assets. I quit my job, and took steps to start my own business. Today, in addition to writing for and managing this blog, I also own and manage a sports information website, have published and promoted a fiction novel, and have several writing projects in the pipeline, including a sequel to my current novel. I’m also in the beginning stages of starting a book publishing/author services company. WOW! Look what I’ve done.

WRONG! I didn’t do any of the above. Like I said, I’ve never solved anything in my life. God did all of the above. He put ideas in my head and guided me. In 1999, I don’t recall having said, to God, “I can’t handle it, please help. In 2013, I did. Both times he guided me.

We all face problems as we pass dwell on earth. We generally solve them, some quickly and easily, some not so quickly and not so easily. But it’s never us that solves our problems, it’s always God, whether we just do what we have to do, or find ourselves down on our hands and knees, crying, telling God, that we don’t know what to do, please help.

The hate emanating from the left toward newly elected and inaugurated President, Donald Trump, his family, his administration, his supporters, and Republicans/Conservatives in general has reached epic proportions, a level, of which, none of us thought possible. The attempted assassination attempt, which targeted Congressional Republicans, injuring Rep. Steve Scalise and others served to put Americans on notice that there is nothing liberals won’t say or do in their attempt to destroy President Trump, the United States of America, and all of us who don’t agree with their governing philosophies.

The left won’t even attempt to discuss issues such as health care, the economy, tax reform, immigration, foreign policy, and the environment. All they seem to want to do is “spread the hate” and destroy as much as possible, including property, lives, etc.

When President Trump was elected and subsequently inaugurated, I expected fights and conflict. I anticipated battles over health care, the Mexican wall, foreign policy, gun control, homeland security, etc. I expected Democrats to accuse Republicans of hating the sick, hating the poor, bowing to big business, hating women, hating gays, and all the other things they’ve accused us over the years. But I have to tell you, never in my wildest imagination did I think the hate and lies from the left would grow to the level that it has. And I don’t think anybody else did either.

You can get on predominately liberal forums and threads, and refute the things they are saying with facts until you are blue in the face. They’re still going to lie and call you names. A couple of days ago, I saw where a liberal on a thread said that Obama never blamed his processor, George W. Bush, for his problems. WHAT A WHOPPER! Is there anyone that can with a straight face that this is true. Mind-boggling, simply mind-boggling.

With things in the state they’re in, I can’t see how our continued responses to the lies and hate coming from the left, with the actual truth, is going to change things. Liberals aren’t going to change and suddenly start examining things with an open mind as we continue to point out lie after lie they’re telling.

God’s always in control, but I don’t think he’s automatically sending us the tools and the wisdom to deal with what’s taking place in our country. Does God want us to turn to him? Does he want us to get down on our knees and say, “God, help us, we can’t do this.” God always wants us to come to him, he’s never too busy to listen to our teeny-tiny whiney problems.

Yes, God gives us the ability to solve some of our problems, even though we may not always acknowledge his presence in our lives. He even allows us to take credit and boast of our abilities (LOL), while still loving us unconditionally.

Is God signaling us to turn to him and ask him to tone down the hate and the lies that are ravaging this nation? I think, absolutely, he is. Does he want us to stop pushing back against what is being said and done by the other side? I don’t think so. But, we need God, we need to directly turn to God because he is the only solution to this problem and all other problems.

THE DONALD TRUMP MYSTIQUE AND GUNS

Since he declared himself a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for President, I haven’t said much about Donald Trump. Now that he’s the front runner and likely to be the Republican nominee, I’ll weigh in.

When Mr. Trump initially entered the race, I didn’t think too much about him. Like many Republicans, I thought he would have “flash in the pan” popularity and then be out of the race. However, your average “conservative man/woman on the street” has bonded with him and may very well put him in the White House. Why is this? Read the following.

Donald Trump, the world’s best businessman, is not afraid to speak out. He doesn’t care about political correctness, nor does he care about the mainstream media’s reaction to him. When he says things that the left doesn’t like and considers offensive, Donald doesn’t sappily attempt to apologize. Instead he thumbs his nose at the left, and this is what the average conservative man/woman want to see.

In the last couple of decades, Republican politicians and office holders have become scared of their own shadows. They’re afraid of the mainstream media and the left, in general. They tippy-tippy-toe around trying to be as politically correct as possible. They’re so afraid of the current president shutting down the government, knowing the president, the mainstream media, and the left, in general, will blame the Congressional Republicans.

After Mr. Trump indicated that he would block all Muslims from immigrating to the United States until representatives could figure out what was going on, the White House indicated that Mr. Trump was not qualified and should end his candidacy. The left went on a “tear.” In addition to suggesting that he was not qualified to be president, the left indicated that any Republican who did not denounce Donald Trump was not qualified to be president. Thus Republican presidential candidates and prominent Republicans got in line with the liberals to denounce Donald Trump. Can you say scared of their own shadow?

Donald Trump is not afraid of saying it as he sees it. If he misspeaks, he may revise what he said to a certain degree, but he never walks anything back, nor does he apologize. He’s politically incorrect and proud of it. Most Americans sick and tired of political correctness, but afraid to be politically incorrect, lest the left attempt to do them harm.

Donald knows this, I discovered this after becoming a political blogger, but Republican politicians don’t seem to have figured it out yet: liberals are nothing but bullies. And what do most bullies do when you turn it right back at them, they tend to fade into the woodwork. Try it, it works.

I’m not comfortable with having someone in the White House who has had no political experience. Running a government is so very different from running a business. I favor someone who has had political experience and business experience. So, I would rather see some else get the nomination. But again, Republicans are scared of their own shadows, the left, and the mainstream media. And I think a lot of Trump’s success is due to the failure of Republicans to get their message out there and fight for what they believe. He’s definitely not my first choice, but if he’s the nominee, he will get my vote.

Now to the second part of this post, guns. Gun sales to Americans are going through the roof due to the indication of the current administration that will they not protect us, even though protecting American citizens is the number one responsibility of any president and his or her administration.

Having lived in the South all of my life, I’m perfectly okay with having guns in my house. When I was growing up, my Dad had guns and I knew where he kept them. I was not to go near them, and I didn’t. While I have kept a handgun to protect myself from intruders coming onto my property for most of my adult life, I never felt it necessary to obtain a carry permit. Now I do.

It’s not a matter of if we have another terrorist attack on American soil, it’s a matter of when. ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups have infiltrated the United States and those charged with protecting the American people will not do their jobs. Furthermore, this administration, the mainstream media, and the left in general are ever so slowly attempting to demoralize our local police forces. They are trying to set guidelines to render the police virtually feckless, thereby limiting their ability to protect people they are supposed to be serving. When I go somewhere, I’m subject to being the victim of perhaps a terrorist attack or criminal attack.

We have the worst president in my lifetime and perhaps in the entire history of the United States. We’re sitting ducks and must take responsibility for our own lives and those of our loved ones. I know it’s a personal choice, but think about it. We’re at a very critical cross-roads in the history of the United States of America. In order for our Democratic Republic to survive, we must take our country back. We can begin now with law abiding adult citizens purchasing firearms and learning how to use them.
