AS FOR ISRAEL, in a way, Obama did Israel a favor by giving this speech. By abandoning even a semblance of friendliness, he has told us that we have nothing whatsoever to gain by trying to make him like us.It's a final cutoff, telling Israel to go pound sand.
Something to bear in mind is that if this is truly God at work, it doesn't matter what we do - if the US is for or against Israel. It's His call. It may be that Israel needs to be sifted (Luke 22:31). It may be that the US needs to be sifted. The Bible is nothing if not a collection of stories of the Jews (as models of all of us) falling away, and having to be punished, then put back on the right track.
In the wake of the death of the 4th amendment (Indiana and then the Supremes themselves) something has been bothering me, and my wife put it into perspective. There is now no way to pass the Jews in the Attic Test.
I haven't commented on the murder of Jose Guerena, but Sheriff Douchebag, um, Dipshit,... um Dupnik in Arizona has really raised a lot of hackles. I'd bet there's at least ten thousand people in this country who would take him out, given half a chance. Yes, this is the same Sheriff Dipshit who blamed the shooting of Congress Critter Giffords on the "vitriolic rhetoric" of the right. I'm sure his crack swat team shooting an innocent Marine veteran 70-frickin' times is someone elses' fault, too. Gonna blame this one on Rush, too, Dipshit? I'm with RTC on this one.
This case is bullcrap from top to bottom. Kill a guy who never took his gun off safety with 71 shots, then deliberately keep the paramedics from treating him until he dies because everyone know "dead men tell no tales"? And then try to frame him? Screw impeachment or recall. This sheriff needs to be in jail. This is the worst of what America is turning into.
