I'm simply amazed and steamed!
I rarely get upset, but I'm so frustrated by what I've witnessed over the past several days/past week! The Bible teaches that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, in other words, men are all sinneres and since we are, we sin. Now mom's and dad's spend 18 or more years trying to get us to act contrary to our "human" or "fallen" nature. In otherworlds, it's natural for a child to hit, steal, etc., so mom and dad train and teach us to control the natural desires and to adopt moral constraints. After this gets in deep enough it becomes our character. Now I know all this but it amazes me to see the lack of character and wickeness of so many in this whole deal...
And to make it worse, what really set me over the edge was an article I just finished reading about how they're "disarming" residents of new orleans who don't want to evacuate.
I won't debate whether or not they should be able to force people to leave the city but I realize today that the only right I have to keep and bare arms is whatever a local police chief or military member decides. This is a snipit out of that article:
Police and soldiers also seized numerous guns for fear of confrontations with jittery residents who have armed themselves against looters.
"No one will be able to be armed. We are going to take all the weapons," Riley said.
They went into one home and took the weapons of a family that were armed in "THEIR" home. The article says they're handcuffing those who are armed and then letting them go later.
Sorry to vent but I'm VERY concerned about where this country is heading. I'm not even there or directly affected but it makes me plain angery that they're doing this.
Sorry for the rant but I'm in a very foul mood...
