Why Should God Bless America?

November 23, 2008 Leave a comment

I almost forgot about this song I heard last year during the Value Voters debate.  I hate to say it – but the words ring true, don’t they?

Why should God bless America?
She’s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back
On everything that made her what she is

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sin and heal our land

The courts ruled prayer out of our schools
In June of ‘62
Told the children “you are your own God now
So you can make the rules”
O say can you see what that choice
Has cost us to this day
America, one nation under God, has gone astray

Why should God bless America?
Shes’s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back on everything
That made her what she is

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sins and heal our land

In ‘73 the Courts said we
Could take the unborn lives
The choice is yours don’t worry now
It’s not a wrong, it’s your right

But just because they made it law
Does not change God’s command
The most that we can hope for is
God’s mercy on our land

Why should God bless America?
She’s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back on everything
That made her what she is

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sins and heal our land

(Reading from 2nd Chronicles 7:14) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land

God have mercy on America forgive her sins and heal our land

Recently, the morning news crew from Fox 25 (Boston) came to Braintree for their weekly zip trip. This segment is a quick behind the scenes look during filming. Featured in the video are commentator VB (Doug Goudie), sports anchor Butch Stearns, and Braintree Mayor Joseph Sullivan.

You can see the actual video here.
You can read about the event here.

Thoughts about Rush Limbaugh

The Conservative Heritage Times has an interesting piece on Rush Limbaugh and his new contract.  Here are some questions people are afraid to ask El Rushbo:

1).  Despite daily Limbaugh exhortations against McCain on a show listened to presumably by a mostly Republican audience they didn’t listen to him and voted for McCain anyway; 2). Having been unable to have influence over his main audience Limbaugh decided to try to influence the outcome of the Democratic race; 3). After spending 16 years bashing Hilary Clinton like a pinata, Limbaugh winds up motivating those listeners who took all his anti-Hilary rhetoric to heart to take the time out of their busy lives and vote for her and 4). 13 years after being named “Honorary Member of the Republican Revolution” Limbaugh now faces the prospect of seeing Democratic majories in Congress as big as when he first started his national career in 1988 along with the Democrtic president to boot?

I would encourage you to read the whole article here.

Questions About the Recent Flooding in the MidWest

June 27, 2008 1 comment

This is from an e-mail I received this morning:

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn’t solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn’t the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines?

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a “vanilla” Iowa, because that’s the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

Opps, I Did it A… – Shut Up!

April 13, 2008 1 comment

Please, pardon my tone and get ready for a rant. 

I am sick and tired of hearing about Britney Spears.  This morning on NBC’s the Today Show there was a short segment lead in with the phrase, “Opps, I did it Again.”  Of course, the story was about Britney Spears.  What earth-shattering even did Britney take part in?  She was involved in what NBC described as a “minor traffic accident.”  A minor traffic accident?  Why is this news!  Is this really what America cares about!  A minor traffic accident!  What are we coming to in this world? 

We have innocent children slaughtered every day by abortion, an economy going down the tubes, a heated presidential election, a “war” in Iraq, and we consider a delusional celebrity involved in a minor traffic accident real news.

Maybe the bigger question is – why do I even bother turning on the tv anymore!
