We did our watchtower study today. When we got to the paragraph about people who 'believe that man can fix his own problems', I felt like pointing out that we get this thought every election cycle. A ridiculous number of people still believe that everything will be better once we get this guy in office, or that guy re-elected.

 

And the thing is, if everyone sat down and hammered out a deal where not everybody got everything they wanted; or if they agreed to stop spending billions on warfare and spend a few million on disease research, or if we actually listened to experts instead of political posturing... the world would immediately become better for a lot of people.

 

The reason man can't fix the world is because they won't, no matter how important it is.

They  can’t. Their god, Satan is stronger then they are. We are where we are, and I don’t expect much from them except that assurance of peace and security. That false one. Them them turning on us. Then reality will overtake them. And, it will be too late.

How long has the downhill slide been going? And it’s going faster.

It’s funny how some aren’t going to get paid or will have to wait to get get their paycheck while the very ones who are responsible for the shut down will get paid.

I try not to think about the injustice of it all. Just depends if you are on the, “A” list, I guess. These folks don’t know how this happened,and how do you fix something g you don’t fully understand?

Government Shutdown Ends After 3 Days of Recriminations

 

WASHINGTON — Congress brought an end to a three-day government shutdown on Monday as Senate Democrats buckled under pressure to adopt a short-term spending bill to fund government operations without first addressing the fate of young undocumented immigrants.

 

The House quickly approved the measure — which will fund the government through Feb. 8 and extend funding for the popular Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years — and President Trump signed it on Monday night.

And in just 3 weeks it begins again.

I assume the old campaign managers have been hired to secretly hire some more finger pointers and mud slingers. For as much as Trump seems to dislike the media he does a great job of providing them fodder...
