Lets “circle back” in history to a time 50 years ago. 50 is a scriptural time of seven weeks plus a day or 49 + 1 days, and in prophecy a day is to a year. That’s how Pentecost is counted from Passover and then on the morrow – day 50. (Lev. 23:15-16) There is the 50th year. (Lev. 25:8-10) [2021 – 50 = 1971] Oh, and let’s not forget the 50 stars on our flag.
It began in 1971 when Tricky Dick opened the door to China while withdrawing from Vietnam after 16 years of failed nation building. (See “Twice in a Lifetime” in main menu.)
But he was never a crook (?) and was expert at giving the “peace sign”.
1975 > Ford has to clean up Nixon’s mess.
Then in 1976, Jimmy Carter is elected by a narrow majoriy. Creating the term “stagnation” was his major achievment while a hostage crises was his major blunder.
“Once again the National Security Council and the Department of State were in open conflict.”
Even the best of presidents have a tendency to get their nose pickers where they don’t belong.
Back to the future! Sunday – September 5, 2021
Let’s catch up a bit! (See “Merry-Go-Round of Red and White Horses” 9/1/2021.) And…
Seems some Asian journalist are a bit ahead of ours. (Aug. 15, 2021 article)
And the Anniversary of 9/11 is under a week away. (See “Cosmic Clockworks I” in main menu.) Also, the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is 9/7.
This September will be a month to remember! Last but not least…
Nation building doesn’t seem to work. What will be the cost for future defence against the latest failed construction project? A good offense is not a good defense. This ain’t no football game! Did they ever get it (nuclear football) out of Joe’s hands? Nancy wanted it out of Trump’s! When I vote for President of these United States, that is what I vote for – not leader of the “free world”. National defense is not nation building. That’s not to say that the Seabees can’t help out in humanitarian projects.
War! What is it good for? Absolutly nothing!
And they shall recycle their implements of war into implements of agriculture. > A retired farmer’s translation of Isaiah 2:4
How may John Deer Tractors can one get out of an Aircraft Carrier?
Stay strong! The King is about to come on the stage.
