In 2012, President Obama looks a little leaner and his hair is a little grayer. In New Hampshire, in the sweltering high school gymnasium, he closed his eyes, lost for a fraction of a second in solitary respite, as he used a handkerchief to dab the sweat off his forehead in the middle of his speech.

 

If you just squinted your eyes a little, and looked at only the first row of President Obama Supporters at a campaign rally, it might not seem all that different from four years ago.

 

The raw electricity still radiates around him. At his rallies supporters still sink their fingers into his back, middle-aged men still, on rare occasions, tear up in his presence, and crowds still stand out in the rain to hear him speak.

 

FLIGHTS OF INSANITY

September 11, the innocent were on the flights
And with no comprehension, knew not their plights,
The ideologically demented – they were on board
Fanatically disillusioned, was their concept of God

In their anguish and anger they commandeered the planes
With impunity for themselves, but for life, nothing but disdain,
So with instructions from “Sheol” they crashed into the Towers
Shockingly unimaginable destruction came in less than an hour

With so many lives that seemed headed for the grave
New York’s rescuers, exemplified the true meaning of – ” brave”,
Rushing into the buildings not knowing what to expect
Down came the mighty Towers and the smell of death

O! Father of light and Giver of unmerited grace
In this our darkest moments, show us Thine face,
Bless our aching hearts with a preamble of Your plan
For we trust in Your goodness, when you raise Your “right” hand

This tragedy is so immense, we just cannot comprehend
But this evil, we are sure, You will bring to an “end”…

Real Clear Politics Electoral College Maps reflecting May through August 23, 2012 with no toss ups are;

 

May: Obama 368, Romney 170;

 

June: Obama 303, Romney 235;

 

July: Obama 332, Romney 206

 

August: Obama 303, Romney 235.

 

As we are all aware, it takes 270 Electoral College Votes to win the Presidency. What is self evident is that, although the numbers have changed, Former Governor Mitt Romney has never surpassed President Barack Obama.

 

From the hundreds of articles I have posted on my Face Book and Google Plus Pages and tweeted, it is no mystery that I support the President. My lack of enthusiasm and non-support for Mr. Romney is solely based on Romney’s constantly changing positions dating back to 1994, when he ran to unseat the now deceased Senator, Ted Kennedy.

 

People often doubt what you say but they always believe what you do, and in regards to “saying and doing,” Mr. Romney falls vividly short in his Political Positions as well as his Policy Positions.

 

As often said, “a day in Politics is a life time,” hence, anything is possible! However, with eight years of Former President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and their Republican Policies that lead to an “Orwellian Terror State and bankrupted our Nation,” I do not believe that America has forgotten, the deep and unforgiving troubled waters that they left us in and how far we have come, irrespective of all of the negative commotion that are being permeated against the President.

 

Sometimes it is difficult for me to comprehend the Voters logic or intellect or both, when it comes to their decision making process, thus let us look at a few factors.

 

From January of 2001 through August of 2008, Bush’s polices lead to the creation of two million, six hundred thousand jobs, but from September 2008 until the day Mr. Bush left office, there was a job loss of three million two hundred thousand jobs. Job losses were at the rate of eight hundred thousand per month.

 

And, this continued into the Obama’s Presidency and well into almost all of 2009, until Obama’s policies were implemented. At the inception of 2010 through the end of July 2012, four million five hundred thousand jobs were created.

 

The Dow Jones fell from a high of 14,000 plus to 6,500 in 2007 and 2008. Today, August 26, 2012, the Dow Jones is at an all time four year high of 13,100 plus.

 

The two wars and the two gigantic tax cuts Bush generated were never paid for, hence when Obama took office, the bills came due and the Republican Party who was part of all of these debts, they held off raising the Debt Ceiling in a timely manner causing us for the first time, to lose our Triple A [AAA] ratings.

 

Of the five trillion dollars increase in our National debt since Obama took office, 88% were spent paying off the unpaid bills left by Bush and only 12% were used to implement and sustain Obama’s policies.

 

The Republicans allowed Wall Street and the Banks to go unregulated and they created a scheme whereby, they took home-owners mortgages, packaged it and sold it to investors as Derivatives [Sub-Prime Mortgage] and this was the catalyst that totally collapsed the housing market causing millions of Americans to lose their homes and millions more are living in homes that is classified as “underwater,” and may yet lose their homes.

 

John Paulson, the Hedge Fund Manager made his fortune betting that the sub-prime mortgage market would collapse, is worth 12.5 billion dollars. He has donated one million dollars to Super PAC’S on behalf of Romney and the Republican Party. He is one of the 23 people along with the Kochs brothers, David, Charles and William that are using their wealth to unseat Obama and elect Romney, so that they can add more billions to their already existing fortunes, whilst 98% of America would sink further back into the deep and unforgiving waters we were left in, at the end of 2008.

 

Amazing isn’t it! Obama is blamed by Mitt Romney, The Republican Party and the Republican and some Independent Voters, for all that ails us and our country.

HIS SPIRIT LIVES IN ME!

Posted in Christ, Darkness, God's Spirit, humility, Illness, Light, Sadness, Sin, Spirituality, Uncategorized on November 30, 2011 by sheriffali

The hours that the sun sheds her light

Much stronger I am within,

But when darkness brings the night

Looms the horrors of sin

 

As the evening shadows begin to fall

Sadness captures me,

No longer am I standing tall

I fall on bended knee

 

This life is hard to explain

Even to those that care,

I’m trying hard to hide my pain

And, my insatiable fear

 

I know my Lord controls the world

Despite my tragedy,

For He is the Master of my soul

And, His Spirit lives in me!
