Word for Today
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” John 3:18-21

Just for Fun
The following was taken from Fun Puzzles.
What two numbers, comprised of only the digit 1, give the same answer when added as when multiplied?
For example, if the two numbers were 1 and 11, they add up to 12, but multiplying them results in 11.
Answer is given on the site.
Herman Cain’s newsletter brought me back to reality. Of course he is right. Every politician attempts to hide or cover their misdeeds when they know re-election is looming and the handwriting is on the wall. Of course Obama is attempting to appear to be a centrist. Cain says we should not forget:
Don’t forget what President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress did in 2010 – and tell everybody who will listen! And if they do not get outraged, then they are sleeping under a rock and they can’t get out.
Yesterday I asked if it is possible that Barack Obama has given up his plan to “fundamentally transform America”. He will not be able to “fundamentally transform America” if he isn’t re-elected and he cannot be re-elected if he doesn’t appear to be a patriotic, freedom loving American. It is much more likely that is what his Christmas message was all about and that is why he is sounding like something other than the Marxist/socialist who took office in 2008.
Pure politicians have for years depended on voters to forget their misdeeds leading up to the next election. But things are different! Voters are not as stupid and uninformed as they used to be. People are more informed and aware of the arrogance of the current administration and Congress than ever before.
