A few thoughts on war, and the struggle within and without…

War. It’s all some people seem to think about. 

The taking from the weak, and giving to the rich. Only an idiot would think there are no winners in war. Sure, it’s a racket, but it keeps the rich, wealthy and the poor, impoverished.

All things considered, it’s a pretty crappy way to keep your wealth. Some people love presiding over the events which lead our nation to war, others love to rail against the political talking points. We blame everyone for the war but ourselves. 

In truth, it’s our fault. These elected idiots didn’t get there because no one else didn’t run against them. They are there because we put them there.

I sit at my desk and look down the drive. Rain appears to be on the plate today, dark clouds gather to the west. It looks like my writing will have to wait. My thoughts are consumed with the issues currently tearing my country apart.

Freaking politicians, corporations, instigators, and racists.

The ripping out of the soul of this country continues. Cities burn, people are hurt, our history disfigured, and some of our fellow citizens stand ready to cause more harm in the name of “social justice.’ 

What a crock of crap.

People have lost their minds. Of course, the experts walk among us. Just tune in to your favorite news channel. They parade them across the screens; as they opine about crap they could never understand. 

Then to make matters worse, I have seen people post on social media claiming that if you can’t say, “black lives matter,” you aren’t a Christian. Seeing this in print, hit me like a ton of bricks. Why can’t we all matter? After all, God made each one of us in His own image. If we are going to use this insane model of logic, how can you claim to be a Christian and support the looting, burning and open assault on innocent people? Does that not violate the instructions found in the Bible?

The Bible that I’ve read states that we should love one another. At no point does it say that any race has precedence over any other. We are all God’s children, and it’s high time we begin to act like it.

War. It’s all some people seem to think about.
