Although our U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of lawful and responsible assembly, speech, and petition of grievances, it is sad to see that, once again, unbridled anger and unlawful violence and greed have savagely torn our nation, coast to coast, in response to the recent Grand Jury decision that was used as an excuse by some for their pillage of Ferguson, Missouri. Looters and angry protesters there, and across the USA, have forced their personal unrest & their numbers onto the innocent citizens whom they attack. The attackers have swarmed like army ants in many locations, in some places

There have been millennia of arguments about whether nations and peoples should or should not follow the One True God, the LORD (the Self-existing, the Eternal, One), and whether honor and respect should be afforded to His People, the Jews. Many groups and nations still try to deny or pull away from the LORD, and often disdain or seek to harm His people, even in this era in which so many souls seek for "political correctness" and insist on 'being nice' to almost anyone who isn't God, a biblical Christian, or a Jewish descendent of Abraham.

Although the Bible verses in Isaiah usually speak to God's Chosen People, the Jews, and to other nations, there are many prophetic passages in which we can learn of His GREAT salvation, events to come, and of His displeasure with many sinful things that we do as human beings. As I was reading the following verses, the first thing that came to mind is the way in which those who preach "politically correct" dogma demand what they want to hear and see in this world, without much or any regard for what God says about the given issues to which they want other people to bow and agree with them.
As old-time North American treaty breakers were said to “speak with forked tongue”, so it is that our current president continues to reverse and countermand his previous stances with regard to the use and abuse of executive powers and orders. What threats and abuses of power he once decried and dismissed, he now gingerly wields to try to blackmail the U.S. Congress, that he might force his amnesty of illegal aliens upon U.S. citizens. What he once claimed to disdain, he now seems to love, now that he’s had a taste of how, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” (Lord Acton: Sir John Dalberg-Acton: 1834-1902)
It is high time for the U.S. Congress to start acting as if it believes our U.S. Constitution, time for Congress to push back the excesses of this presidency, and the excesses of prior presidents.

The world has encouraged people to expend FAR TOO MUCH hype, superstition, and selfishness on the notion of what Christmas should be about. I encourage everyone to go back to the Bible and learn the truth about it and what it really means; what true gifts and giving are really all about. For an overview of the Nativity story, and the kind of giving that pleases God, read the first few chapters of Luke and John (and by all means, don't stop there, for the Bible is laden with examples of true giving that pleases God.)
Although the event in this video has nothing to do with the worldly notion of Christmas, yet it conveys a taste of the selfless spirit of what giving should mean to us at Christmas and every day of every year, a principle to which Christ Jesus shall hold all people accountable, since He is God's greatest gift to all people for all time.
Always give without grumbling or ever expecting anything in return. Give even when no one will ever know that you are the one who has provided the gift. Give to please God, as you seek His will about what to do. Do not give to please yourself, nor to win the approval of any person. God bless you as you seek Him through His Word. You will learn much about good and evil by the way that you give.

Another wake-up call for US citizen voters:
I just happened to watch that analysis of Jonathan Gruber's comments, when it aired on Fox. Other popular commercial news networks (more liberal media) were counterattacking, issuing minimizing commentaries, saying that the whole thing is just a Republican misunderstanding of Gruber’s role and influence, and of his repeatedly demeaning comments. Listen to the Fox analysis for yourself, and then decide.
Folks, make no mistake. There is definitely a class-destroying war being waged by the Obama administration, and others, to eliminate the middle class and make the poor into a pliant horde of sycophant voters. Obama has publicly said in many ways and venues that he has little to no respect for our Constitution and that he thinks it is time to make changes to it. He has repeatedly circumvented our Constitution with edicts and pushing bad legislation.
As a secondary note, as you digest the mess that is Obama-care, and President Obama's eagerness to issue an executive order to let all the illegals stay here without penalty, I’m sure that you can imagine how flooding the U.S. with illegal aliens can easily play into the scenario of a takeover by government supported poverty class that is dependent on money siphoned from working middle class people into the pockets of the then formerly-illegal whom the President must surely envision being used to increase the knee-jerk vote in his Party. If I were a Democrat, I'd be wholly ashamed of President Obama.
