LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

So lemme ask some questions

If a political party claims to be reaching out to all Americans, then a former President from that party indicates in an email the desire to have such a large majority in the Senate that the minority has absolutely no voice - well, is that really reaching out to all Americans?

If I work for a machine-tool shop where the CEO and vice presidents within that company make over $250,000, and they start having to pay higher taxes, what is the likelihood that in order to save their profits they start layoff's in order to cut production costs? Would such layoff's limit their ability to expand product lines?

And what of the company's we service; won't they have layoff's too? Won't our machine orders begin to dry up, resulting in yet more layoff's?

A small note: for all you lazy anti corporate America types out there - I once worked for a company for twenty-two years. That company sold the division that I worked for to an over-sea's outfit. I ended up on the unemployment lines, staring out the window while in said lines wondering where I was going to get a job. All the while I understood why the company sold the division. It was a business move and necessary for their survival. Except for occasional short-lived bouts of resentment I can easily say that I am not anti-corporate America.

So please, let's keep it a favorable climate for even large companies to stay in America, and able to turn out whopping earnings. When they do so we all benefit.

Mark,
Well said. I just posted a piece on the outrage of the personal attacks on Joe the plumber.

The democratic party does not want to reach out to others. They want to eliminate dissent to their left wing radical agenda.

I am very angry at the tactics of this party and their willing allies in the media......

Wayne,
When big business thrives they higher more employees, meaning more people in the community have jobs. When you tax them silly they look to relocate.

In short: higher taxes kill jobs!

Couldn't agree more.

The same applies to small business - which is what I'm a part of. We shall see what happens...

Mark, I am praying for this election, It looks like tough times ahead throughout the world. I am so thankful to be a part of the family of God and know that "HE" reigns above all.

It is so sad how this election has beEN overcasted by the Liberal Media. I should not watch the news because I get so frustrated with it. If Obama gets voted in USA will get "CHANGE".... "SHORT CHANGED"!
