OPEN YOUR EYES, OPEN YOUR EARS,LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, 2

Now I come to the really hard part. The one that tugs at my soul because I am not sure what is correct. As I stated last night I don’t really have a problem with a mandate for certain countries.  2 of those are Somalia and Yemen.  I am not sure why we let any one in from those countries. If you don’t understand look up USS Cole or watch the movie Black Hawk down.  The movie probably did not show all the horror that went on at that time. Well as I did not put down last night the mandate has been over turned for now. I can live with that also.

The trouble in my heart is when it comes to refugees.  People that cannot go back and live because they have no place to go back to.  Nothing. No home, no business and no one to buy anything even if it was still standing. The Bible is very clear on how we should treat those that are less fortunate than we are.  Jesus says even our enemies should be treated well. Those things are in the Word. We cannot deny that. Yet where do we put these refugees? How many do we take in or let live in one area? Do we give them trailers like they tried to do for Katrina.  Do we make shelters for them like they did for the American citizens that had Japanese in their blood. Wire around the camps with armed guards and dogs. How many millions for this broke country do we spend on housing,safety for them and us, medical help, food and clothing.  All these are good questions I think but I do not have an answer for any of them.

People say why doesn’t the other Muslim countries take them in.  They might if they were the same type of Muslim. But there are 5 different sects of Muslims. None of them like or tolerate the other. Sunnis will war against Shi’ites and vice versa and their are at least 3 more that are all separate. Iran will not hake in any one from Iraq and the Saudis will not take any one from Syria. Even  those of the same sect.  Turkey did because the government is secular but as you know from the news they are having problems themselves.

Now again I write this for myself.  If you disagree with me on anything that is okay on my part.  I don’t expect every one to agree with me.  Thank you for reading. Ben C.

Open your eyes,Open your ears, listen to your heart.

This may be the hardest blog for me up to this point.That is saying a lot because I have struggled with several for several different reasons. This is hard because I have to believe 100% what I am writing 100%. Not so say I  am right in everything I put down but that I have a conviction that I am believe in what I am saying. This is not the time to be wishy washy.

Trump is now president. Not quite a month but he has already been called the worst president we have ever had. But not one of you can tell me why.  He nor Congress has taken away the ACA. He has not built any wall on the Mexican border. He has made a mandate against countries that harbor terrorist or have done terrorist activities against us. But he is not the one in charge of letting people in or out. President Obama and Clinton as well as Bush did similar acts when they were president. But not one of then have been accosted like Trump has. He like they did left out a country that should be high on the list, Saudi Arabia. We also know why.  OIL. Whether or not the mandate will work is yet to be seen.  But if it is like most mandates, then there will be abuses of so called power. Good people will not be allowed to get into the country or even BACK into the country. Why, who knows, we won’t. But I am not going to condemn him  for this.  It is his way of trying to stop the bad guys from getting in and hurting people. Will it work? Not 100% but he should do what he sees fit.  Give it a shot.

Should he build a wall. I say no. It is too cost prohibitive to even try. Now I am all for beefing up the Border Patrol giving them more money and the right to have them deal with the illegals. ICE deported around 250 this past week. Most if not all were convicted criminals. You would have thought they had never done this before. Bill Clinton did it, Bush did it and Obama sent 2 million back. Probably all the way back to Reagan. During Clinton’s term, Simmons Food at plant 1 and 2 was shut down for 2 hours while ICE  checked people and papers out. So quit your belly aching. That is nothing new.

Trump’s new cabinet members. Most I have never heard of as is usual, so I can’t say they will great or lousy. But most of the reasons I heard from Democrats were not good enough reasons not to try them out any how. I do think the Trump pick for Supreme Court Justice should be seated.  Was Obama’s pick unqualified, I am sure he was a good judge and lawyer at one time. But because Obama picked him I do think he would have been pro-abortion. I do not want to see a court that is for the destroying of life. Do I think abortion will be banned? No, because I do not think any one will try. I would like to see it over turned bur honestly I do not see it happening. Now I am all for defunding Planned Parenthood. Every government cent they get.  In 2015 they got over 500 million dollars from the government. They received over 350 million from private donations and 300 million from non-government sources.  They do not need tax money to survive.

Stopping this tonight to be continued later.
