In a campaign speech Jun 2 2008, in all humility candidate Obama said this:
The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. This was the moment—this was the time—when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals. Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.
Well, what do you know? The sea levels are beginning to drop in 2010. (1)
Thank you Obama that the temperatures are beginning to drop to little ice age temps (2)
Thank you Obama that the excessive heat caused by human activity are beginning to rain out in Australia and Brazil, central Europe and many other places.
Thank you Obama for delaying and diminishing Solar Cycle 24, allowing record amounts of Cosmic radiation to reach the earth, giving us more clouds, rain and snow, thereby cooling the planet. (3)
Thank you Obama for protecting our land from all further development, so that our standard of living can be more in line with third world countries (4)
Thank you Obama for your tireless efforts to usher in Global Governance through Article 21, Cap and trade legislation, giving us mercury lightbulbs that splat mercury all over the nursery when they break, working to sign the Children’s protection act, The Law of the Sea Treaty and everything else coming from the wise leadership of the United Nations.
Thank you Obama for increasing the fuel efficiency standard of vehicles to the point where the need to increase the mining of earth’s precious resources will increase the total energy need to produce and run these vehicles.
Thank you Obama for ensuring our credit downgrade by insisting on increased spending rather than on producing a budget.
Thank you Obama for your tireless efforts to protect a woman’s right to choose by denying Federal Funding to doctors and hospitals that have moral qualms about aborting the lives of yet to be born babies, and providing federal funding for abortions.
Again, where would we be, and what could we do without you?
Could a return to abiding by constitutional principles change anything?
Could reining in a multitude of czars, putting them under congressional oversight rather than giving them carte blance to implement regulation of laws that have not been read before passed prevent some of this?
By doing nothing, will all this go away?
But yet, there is hope. As God says through the Prophet Jeremiah in
Lamentations 3:21-23 (King James Version)
21This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
And again, a call to action:
2 Chronicles 7:14 (King James Version)
14If 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 will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
(1) The level in 2010 is lower than the previous minimum, hence indicating a break in the trend.
(2) Temperatures in the Midlands, Great Britain.
(3) Solar cycle 24 is refusing to get its act together. Notice the lowering of predicted maximum.
(4) This is a simulated map of land thet would be protected from human development under Article 21..
(Red = no development at all)
(Yellow = Buffer zones, strict limitations on development)
(Gray = Agricultural development permitted under strict central guidelines)
( Black = Areas where people will be allowed to live.)
