Playing “blame game” for past hurts our future
How many times have each of us asked ourselves, why was I born. I was born in 1938, I was not responsible for the evil of Germany and the Holocaust, or for the evil business of slavery. For most of my adult life, the government placed a guilt complex on every American.
All those nations receiving foreign aid have attached their problems to the United States like barnacles on a ship and played the blame game. Even the first black President of the United States plays the race card.
Our grandparents, parents, this generation, our children, grandchildren,are going to suffer the same mentality of the blame game. How can one live one’s life to the fullest, be civic minded, compassionate, honest, be courageous, know difference between right and wrong, fight for justice, when you are told everyday you are responsible for past evils? America will never heal until the blame game and the spread of hatred is over.
Our political leaders will do anything to get elected including blaming one culture over another, and people are dumb enough to allow it to happen.

Courts hold responsibility for loss of true religion
We hear reports that the end of the world is near because of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, fires, food production, and a poor economic climate. Well, the guy upstairs is angry, but one hopes he takes his anger out on the courts and not on the good people of America. It is the courts that approve attacks on Christianity.
The courts do not want God, they want many gods who sit in chambers wearing black robes. How come they do not follow our Constitution and its amendments? John Adams claimed that the foundation of the nation bonded the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity. The courts are trying to change the premise upon which the nation was founded. Remember Greece and Rome had many gods that led to their demise.
One theory is that when the asteroid or large meteorite hit the Earth, it pushed Earth out of orbit and created the ice age because it was farther from the sun. The Earth wobbled back into its current orbit and almost all of the ice has now melted.
Another theory is that there was a tropical sea from the Gulf of Mexico to the North Pole and when Yellowstone blew, it covered most of the area. That is why there is so much oil in those areas. Recently, they are putting 15 more oil wells in North Dakota. Russia is putting in a claim for the North Pole.
One final theory is that the Poconos slide over a tropical sea and there is oil below 25,000 feet. We really need to find oil in Luzerne County.
