LOANING MY BLOG TO MY FRIEND TED . . . HIS WISE WORDS . . .

My friend Ted is Retired Air Force Lt. Col. and he has proven to me to be informed – here are his words:
It saddens me that a man of Gen. Erik Shinseki’s caliber should be thrown under the bus by the likes of BHO.

Given the size and scope of VA’s responsibilities, there is no way Shinseki should have known of the mismanagement problems at clinic level unless he was told about them.  I guarantee you that he was constantly assured that everything in the medical department was working well and did not need his attention.  The medicos were covering their own asses and sending up reports to Shinseki that said everything was okay.  They kept covering up their shit until they ran out of sand.

I will venture the opinion that there is no one better to correct the problems than Shinseki.  He has been head of VA since 09, so he knows how it works.  He knows who lied to him.  He knows who to fire and who to put in their place.  And now that the administration is in the spotlight, he might have gotten some organizational changes that would result in real improvements.  That will not happen, but we will never hear of it.

The media have their kill and have satisfied their bloodlust for the moment.  They will move away in search of other victims and we will hear no more about the problems in the VA medical departments.  It is old news.  A new chief will be appointed and will say all the requisite things about how he is going to ensure that something like this never happens again.  After that little dog and pony show, the problem will disappear from the American consciousness.

I KNOW WHEN LIFE BEGINS . . .

In this time between the celebration of our Lord’s birth, and His resurrection, the truth of Communion keeps coming to my mind.  In remembrance of our Lord . . .

“Matthew 26:26 – 29 (KJV) And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

Satan’s desire to thwart God’s plans shows itself in millennium before, and since Jesus time on Earth with mankind. Prophecies regarding our Lord and human history have been interwoven with man’s fiction to create all manner of Cults and grouping of men hell bent on destroying the truth by deception. Not least of which are those that ridicule Communion. For Christian believers, this emotional event is in remembrance of our Lord coming to be with us in human form, and the work of the Cross. In sacrificing His life-blood to cover our sins, He is our savior and our redeemer.

In thinking on this, there was something in this reality of the Lord’s shed blood that I was missing. Then it came to me – the simplest of thoughts – the dimension of life that we all know, but somehow our Supreme Court couldn’t seem to grasp when deciding Roe vs. Wade . . . without blood, there is no beating heart, or working organs in our bodies. Without blood coursing through our veins, there is no life to the body that houses our souls. The Supremes in Roe vs. Wade would not define when life began, and made their decision based on THAT! So very clever a ruse as has ever been perpetrated on mankind.

If you are Christian, the new fetus in our womb is the moment life begins inside our body. We know that we existed in God’s knowing before that moment: “Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee.”

As it turns out, if you are not Christian, the same “moment of life” beginning inside our body is true. I found it easily. I even found it in a source that every school child can find – the Encyclopedia Britannica:

“In the human embryo, the first site of blood formation is the yolk sac. Later in embryonic life, the liver becomes the most important red blood cell-forming organ, but it is soon succeeded by the bone marrow”

Where there is human blood forming, there is life – Period. I further learned that the child’s DNA is in that new blood – the child’s DNA is unique, and wholly separate from the DNA of the mother. We each have God’s truth coursing through our veins. The lie was created to thwart God’s plan, and our shame for allowing this is almost too great to bear. If we ask His forgiveness, we will be forgiven . . . but to continue – is to ask for His wrath. Why we have not heard this from every Christian pulpit in America, I cannot even begin to understand. We are to be diligent truth finders – and this one wasn’t hard to find.

This new government program nicknamed Obamacare promotes the death of our unborn children. Court cases are being fought to force Christians to participate in abortion funding, and distribution. This fact should have been the first clue of the deception of the entire program. After centuries of medical research to improve and extend our lives, social medicine seeks not only to deny men, women, and children equally of these medicinal miracles, but to force participation in the death of unborn miracles. It will not be doctors deciding what medical miracles you may or may not have, it will be brain washed, and power infused administrators. This political disaster has come into fruition because of evil intent by giving the glorious illusion of redistribution of health care, when, in the full implementation of Obamacare – as evidenced in the wording of the bill, even that is a lie.

As we approach these weeks before Easter, I ask you to pray on this daily. I believe in miracles . . . especially when more than just a couple of us are praying together. God bless you.
