by James Jett
Spike Lee: about violent crime in America!

In the Blog, Spike Lee, Tavis Smiley:Christians killings, I questions the statements both men gave on TV when talking with Bill O’Reilly, in Spike case, and Tavis Smiley  made his remarks on his own show. The links will get you back to that Blog, In future posts, I will learn and report the facts about both subjects, violent crimes in the America and Christians killings being equal to that of Moslems.

I am posting videos late because locating them and learning to upload them require skill and know-how, which I have in abundant  when compared with an Ape. no insult to Apes intended.

TEA-PARTY, INDEPENDENT, HISPANIC and VOTERS

by James Jett

The elected and the voters are parting ways again. This time after the voters made the largest changes in Congress in history. Republicans will take over the congress, and enjoy gains in the Senate. Realizing they are in office because the people in the Tea-party wanted to see change in the makeup of the Congress. “Change that we can all believe in.”

It is obvious, that the newly elected to the congress, know and appreciate the result of the last election, giving majority rule to the Republican party. Most of the congressman that is up for election in 2012, will  be aware of the wishes of the members elected with help from the Tea-party. Commitments made to lobbyist and special interest groups will have to pass musters with the newly elected, or receive opposition if they fail to do so.

The Tea-party, show ability to get out the vote and field candidates that would receive wide support. And the Illegal-alien-movement. (I see them as a movement) All through better organized, enjoyed less success, and failed to increase the number of elected Senators and Congressman that will vote for most of their agenda. Two destiny groups, each promise they will control this country in the future. It is clear to me, the Hispanics are in the lead, with the Tea-party working to catch up. The 2010 election showed that the Tea-party had nation-wide appeal, while the Hispanic are strong in pockets, many pockets, people willing to help them, churches willing to support them, businesses giving them jobs and governments changing the laws so they can stay in this country and grow in numbers able to rule this nation. It’s just a dream, when the Hispanics talk about ruling the United States of America, it’s just a dream–not impossible, but just a dream! The Tea-party will succeed, unless they lack the will to get the job done.

Present polls and independent reviews, show that the government can’t run any thing successfully. Pot-holes in the cities, damage automobiles,’ and cost’s, thousands of dollars for repairs. Highways and freeways repaired in one year, is in need of repair the next year in the same spot! Buying licensing and plates is a pain, when you tell them your car is the same one you bought the license for last year and they ask you what make or model at the same time they are looking at your title.

Any poll, any review and talk with the citizens, will show, a small government is the best government. Large government benefits lobbyists and elected officials, while costing us more in taxes and time, because of slow lines and paper work.

JESUS, JOHN THE BAPTIST AND CRAZY PEOPLE

by James Jett

The shooting in Tucson, Arizona, by a mad or insane person, that killed six people and left 13 other wounded, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Gifford, cause me to think about the people involved in the post I wrote about Jesus and John The Baptist.

It seem like many crazy or insane people was, unfortunately, living doing the 33 years Jesus Christ taught on this earth. Starting with King Herod the Great,  King of the Jews  in Judea under the Roman Empire. Herod worried about a threat to his power and authority from the new King, he heard rumors about – a baby. Herod tasked every one to find the baby,  no luck, because the child’s parents had taken him to Egypt.  When all efforts failed to located the child, Jesus Christ, Herod ordered all babies killed ,two years and under in Judea.

This is disturbing, when you consider todays circumstances, where people in the highs power of the government and crazy citizens are at odes because power and authority, is at the apex of the debate.  Jesus, nor any one following him later, wanted to usurp Herod’s power or authority. Yet, this King, out of fear, panic, like a brain-dead Cobra, and kill all the male babies under two years old.

Jesus Christ and John the Baptist are Cousins, Jesus is the younger, John the Baptist is older by six months. Almost at birth a member of Herod’s family try to kill a member of Jesus family. Within thirty-three year a member of King Herod the Great,s family order the beheading of John the Baptist and  the orders came from Herod Antipas, a son of Herod the Great.  you notice (all of them are name Herod?)  Herod Antipas divorced his first wife Phasaelis, the daughter of King Aretas IV of Nabatean. In favor of Herodias, who had formerly  been married to his brother Herod Phillip 1. According to the New Testament Gospels,  John the Baptist’s condemnation of this arrangement that caused Antipas to have him arrested.

Herodias, the wife of one brother, former wife of the other brother. Philip the Tetrarch, married his niece Salome, the daughter of Herodias. The Herod family married each other and is the people in charge when at least, two members of Jesus Christ’s family,  killed by hanging on a cross or by beheading.

In my long life on this earth, I have talked about Jesus, and the fact that his own people rejected him when they could have selected a guilty criminal to die. These people had witnessed Pontius Pilate washing his hands of Jesus and reluctantly send him to his death. And Jesus did not conspire against Rome, so Herod Antipas, the Tetrarch, also finds nothing treasonable in Jesus’  actions.

Less conversation about John the Baptist, but every time you are in a group and some one want to praise you for a good deed,” you acting like John the Baptist”, meaning, you are doing good and helping people. Higher praise if you abstain from sex, whiskey and bar fight. So at a young age we knew that John the Baptist was innocent because he committed no crimes. Herod did not want to behead John, because he thought he was a good religious man. Being weak, and evil, he ordered  the beheading  to please his wife!

This country is heading down that road, people are angrily attaching voters because the voter don’t agree with them.

Bill O’Rielly. Bernard Goldberg: ET AL

by James Jett

For years, more years than I care to mention, I have heard people, Christians and non Christians, but mostly non christians, takeing liberty, when talking about The Lord Jesus Christ. Please tell me what in the saying or life of Jesus, cause you to  say, he would be a Liberal Democratic, if he was on earth today? Answer, after you read this post.

This post is not for baby Christians, meaning “those on the milk of the word” I am writing to the mature Christians,  “those on the meat of the word” Thus, no reference, chapter nor verse. If you can not read this and know if it is in the Bible, or it is not stated in the Bible, stop reading.

I am not a teacher or a preacher, and do not intend to make anyone become concern because of what i am posting in this Blob.

Please consider the following: about the life of Jesus while he taught people on this earth.

Jesus fed five thousand and never ask the government for a single dime. (a democrat?)

“Let him without fault cast the first stone”

“If a man don’t work, he should not eat”

Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world” His Disciples  and Followers hoped he would set up a Kingdom, maybe like the Kingdom ruled by King David in the Old Testament.

“Jesus said “we should edify each other , and admonish one another”

Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is Gods'”

Jesus paid the taxes without complaining, yet, he never tried to build a large government dedicated to providing for the poor. In fact, he said we the people should feed the poor.

Every body that Jesus healed, every body that Jesus fed, he healed and fed them without one cent from the government.  Unless Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s Steward, Susanna, and many other women, who ministered to Jesus and his followers, received money from her husband, Jesus received no money from the government. I recall, the Bible said Joanna and the other women gave from their own means (or words of that equivalence).

If Jesus were on earth today,  I can assure, the democrats would reject him because he would not be for the social programs they passed.  Republicans would reject him because he is against greed and unjust governments.

Please know this, when Jesus return: every knee will bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord!

I will end by making it clear that I am not protesting, nor am I complaining or asking you to stop. Just want you to know this ,  when talking about Jesus, back-it-up with facts in the Bible.

Personally, I never question Jesus, but I ask him a lot of questions. This example: John the Baptist, a forerunner of Jesus, was in prison for a statement he made about sins. Herodias, Herod’s wife, well (so-called wife) because he took her from his brother.  It seem this is what John the Baptist called a sin and she, Herod’s wife asked for his head on a platter, after Herod said he would give anything up to half of his kingdom if her daughter, Salome  would dance for his guesses.  She danced and asked her mother what she should ask for and her mother said “the head of John the Baptist. Herod had him beheaded and Salome gave it to her mother.

With his death pending, John the Baptist send some of his followers to Jesus and told them to ask him if he was the one who is to come or should we expect someone else? Jesus replied. “Go back and report to John what you hear and see : The blind receive sight, the lame walk,  those who have leprosy  cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away because on account of me.”

Jesus said: “I tell you the truth: among them that are born of  women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” This same Jesus said: “yet he who is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than He.”

When I, James Jett, is down and out and my world come down on my shoulders, I ask Jesus, am I one of those greater than John the Baptist?

Window Live Writer and WordPress (FAILURE)

by James Jett

Every since last year,(well, last week) I have tried to post to my Blogs using Window live writer. Every time I  post to one Blog and try to add another blog the program refuse to add the new blog. I can only post to a new blog if I replace the old blog. In other words, Window Live Writer will let me use one blog.  all my attempt to  add my three blog site fail, every time I try. Reinstalling Window Live Writer and updating it do not help. For the past three days, I have tried to add another blog, and each time it failed. Tomorrow, I will contact Microsoft to get some help and if that fail I will hope for the next best thing.

My next best hope is to download and install WordPress.  Hopefully, I will be able to import post to each blog as I wish, without any difficulties.
