Truth, Justice and the American Way

February 5th, 2014

SupermanGrowing up in the 50s and 60s, the Golden Age as I call it, was wonderful.  That was the time that television was becoming a familiar item in many American homes.  Our first TV was a used, round screen Philco, with rabbit ears.  Didn’t everybody have rabbit ears? There were a lot of great black and white TV shows in the 50s.  One that really stands out in my memory was the TV show, Superman.  It starred George Reeves as Superman and when the program came on it showed Superman standing with hands on hips in front of a waving American flag.  Then, the announcer said these words:

Superman!

Faster than a speeding bullet;

More powerful than a locomotive;

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Look…up in the sky; it’s a bird; it’s a plane…it’s Superman!

Yes, it’s Superman; strange visitor from another planet who came to earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.

Superman!

Who can change the course of mighty rivers;

Bend steel in his bare hands;

And who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper,

Fights a never ending battle for…

Truth, Justice, and the American Way!

Excuse me!?!  Truth, Justice and the American Way?  Well, back in 1954 when this was aired, it was good to have heroes who were also Patriotic and fought for Right and Justice.  Superman was just one of many who fought against evil and caused justice to triumph in the end.  Many of my old childhood heroes (still today for that matter) were and are cowboys; the good guys wearing white hats, a badge or star and packing a six-shooter to handle any bad guys whom they encountered breaking the law.  They had sidekicks who helped them get the job done.  These guys were our heroes.  I guess you can say we were indoctrinated to love the good and eschew the evil in the world.  You could even say we were brainwashed with righteousness winning out in the end.  Patriotism was a big part of it all too.  Not only did Superman stand in front of that waving flag with 48 stars on it, but I remember Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and Hopalong Cassidy also being patriotic.  As I said, it was the right thing to do in those days.

Now fast-forward to the year 2014.  Something very sinister; very frightening and foreboding has happened in the last 50 or 60 years.  Today, we wake up in an America with a president that turns the IRS dogs loose on Patriotic citizens.  Yes, I have lived to see a dark day in America.  Everything about this present administration, which includes all of Congress as well as the President and his Czars and minions, is completely opposite of Truth, Justice and the American Way.  Everything this administration does is 180 degrees opposite of the mores and norms of the 50s and 60s.

I never thought I would live to see the day when the enemies of the state would be Patriots, Veterans, Bible-believing Christians, 2nd Amendment advocates, Conservatives, Capitalists, and hard-working, tax-paying Americans.  It is as if we now live in Bizarro World.  Bizarro World was a place in the 60s Comic Books where everything was turned upside-down or reversed; right was wrong and up was down.  Bizarro World was a square planet where their version of Superman did evil deeds instead of heroic deeds and other such bizarre behavior.  Everything was opposite; everything was wrong; everything was like it is today…strangely backward.

It seems so out of place today to see the Obama Administration viciously going after the Tea Party as if they were Communists, and the Communists and Socialists are being embraced and are now called Progressives.  That sounds really strange to me to give a positive name like Progressive to such a backward way as Communism.  But, the thing that breaks my heart and the thing that I just cannot grasp is how our own Congress is complicit in all this wrong-doing.  What was good is now bad and what was bad is now good!  What in the name of God is happening?

Well, at times like this and every time you need help, turn to the Word of God.  I prefer the King James Version of the Bible.  Look at what it says in Isaiah 5:20 & 21, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Vs 21 – Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”

My friend, that sounds like the day in which we live! That scripture will never be fulfilled any better than it is in today’s America.  If you don’t think our President doesn’t fit the bill on that 21st verse, then you haven’t been watching him.  I think the old Prophet Isaiah wrote that under the direction of the Holy Spirit just for current day America.

I have been observing the way Obama has been governing this nation.  He started out apologizing to the world for the greatest nation the world has ever known.  Then, he said the America is no longer a Christian nation.  He calls himself a Christian but definitely has very strong leanings toward Islam.  He is waging a private war against Christians all over the world, the Catholic Church, Nuns, and especially Israel in particular.  He favors Islam over Christianity and he favors the Palestinians over the nation of Israel, one of our strongest allies.  He has been promoting the Muslim Brotherhood and Arab Spring, taking a strong hand in toppling Middle East leaders who were peaceful to the United States at the time.  Now, he supports Iran as they attempt to attain the atomic bomb and at the same time tells the world that he has everything in control.  He even warned Congress not to interfere with his treaty.

He created an unwanted healthcare system that is going to consume 1/6th of the nation’s economy at a time when we need to boost the economy, not hurt it.  The so-called Affordable Healthcare Act is anything but affordable.  It isn’t working; it’s slow to get started and is full of problems and structural errors.  I don’t think it will ever work.  Have you ever noticed that nothing the government takes over prospers or works right?  Look at how LBJ’s plan to end poverty in America turned out.  We are now a Welfare State and it is growing! The USPS is broke and getting worse each day.  Welfare has increased by multiple billions even since he took office.  He extended unemployment so long that it now is a tool to keep people out of work.

Put plainly, Obama is destroying this nation with a precision that could only be planned in advance and carried out by “behind-the-scene” evil forces that seem bent on bringing this nation down to a third world level.  China and other foreign countries are being favored over our own workforce and products.  Our government gave China “Favored-Nation” status during the Clinton Administration and that is when our trade deficit problems started.  And, it gets worse with every passing day.  Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re being systematically destroyed and all we can do is watch the news and wonder how in the world they can be so brazen and lie so much without blinking an eye.

In the last election, my wife and I contributed $50.00 to a Republican candidate and we also gave a $20.00 donation to the local Tea Party organization.  Now the IRS is singling us out just like the media is reporting.  They keep telling us that they have not received our tax return for 2012 even though we have mailed it three times.  They requested a certain schedule, which indicates that they have received it but they still claim they have never seen it.  We have sent it by Registered Mail and had our Accountant send it also.  We can’t even file our taxes this spring until we get this Obama/IRS problem corrected.  We finally turned the whole thing over to Congressman Lynn Westmoreland’s office and they are looking into the matter.  And to top it all off, Obama said to Bill O’Reilly that the IRS scandal was only a bone-headed mistake and there was no smidgen of a scandal in the IRS/Tea Party problem.  Well, excuse me Mr. President, but I beg to differ with you.  Your whole administration is crooked, illegal, and dangerous.  Just ask the Border Patrol officer who was killed with guns that you and Holder supplied to the Mexican Drug Cartels and now you lie about it and even blame that on Bush!  If we could only ask the four men who lost their lives in Benghazi, Libya at the US Embassy, they would tell us that Obama and Hillary are lying about it all.

Superman, where are you when we need you?  We are living in Bizarro World and there is, seemingly, no help for us.  But wait!

Look up in the sky; it’s a bird; it’s a plane; no, it’s Jesus! Yes, it’s Jesus; strange visitor from another world who came to earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.

Jesus!

Who can change the hearts of mighty sinners;

Bless little children in his loving hands;

And who, appearing as The Son of Man, mild mannered Rabbi for a great Heavenly Father,

Fights a never ending battle for…

Truth, Justice, and the Righteous Way!

Yes it’s Jesus, coming to redeem His own and rescue us from the Anti-Christ and the hellions in this awful place where Satan rules.  Yes, King Jesus is our only hope to bring us a whole new world where Righteousness Reigns and, as the Bible says in Revelation 21:8, “The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.” Did you hear that?  All liars will have their place in the lake of fire…that’s hell Mr. President!

And in the end, the good guy, Jesus, will ride off on a white horse with millions of His Redeemed Children on white horses and all the good guys will be triumphant forever and evil will be no more!

Amen!
