 It’s been said for so long that it’s become a cliché of sorts: if you don’t learn anything from your mistakes, you are bound to repeat them. The funny thing is that it’s true. It really is. The problem, however, arises when learning from your mistakes demands that you, as an individual, acknowledge you made one.

Because so many today are self-absorbed to the point of narcissism, they would rather bang their head against the same wall every day all day than admit to anyone, especially to themselves, that they made a mistake. In a time when everyone is lying to you about everything, self-awareness is priceless. That shortness of breath and tightening of the chest you experienced taking the three steps from the mobility scooter to your car in the Walmart parking lot isn’t body positivity. You’re too fat, and you’re about to have a heart attack! That hissy fit you threw in the coffee shop because your half-caff soy latte was missing the foam wasn’t you standing up for your civil rights; you were just being a shrew.

By far, one of the biggest mistakes most people made in the recent past is that they didn’t believe people at their word no matter how crazy what they said sounded. While the power-mad railed on about what they would do if by some miracle they took control, most people sat on their couches, shrugged their shoulders, looked at their spouse, and said, “well, that’s just crazy, that’ll never happen. This horse-toothed jackass is talking about outlawing burgers, cars, and private property. The other turban-wearing one is talking about defunding the police, making Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico a state, and opening up the borders. I don’t think that’s what they really mean.”

Well, guess what, buttercup? That’s precisely what they meant and then some. Now it’s too late to put the crazy back in the bottle, and what’s more, they’ve been emboldened to take their crazy to new heights. Don’t get me wrong, their puppet in chief is no slouch either. While they’ve been able to brush off criticism of his mental decline thus far, we’re headed for some choppy international waters, and if we’re not careful, we’ll find ourselves in a hot war with a nuclear power in no time flat.

I know, I know, the situation is under control. We are, after all, talking about the legend who stood up to Corn Pop steering the ship and making life and death decisions in the blink of an eye. It’s only his name, where he is, and what he’s supposed to be doing that he forgets on the regular. That life and death stuff, he’s sharp as a dull butter knife when it comes to that.

To say that we find ourselves in a mess is the understatement of the century. For the most part, we find ourselves here because we didn’t believe people when they told us exactly what they planned to do if they got the power to do it. Mayhap we can try not to repeat that particular mistake.

Maybe I’m just an old fuddy-duddy, but between glowing in the dark and having to spit roast my neighbor’s cat for sustenance and a few mean tweets, I’d take the mean tweets every day and twice on Sunday.

With love in Christ,

Brother Bodea, This is because of sin! We are going the path that God revealed to your Grandfather. We can choose to be angry or, we can encourage repentance and, prayer. I am praying and, repenting for myself as well as the nation.

Persecution is coming, war is coming, famine is coming. America needs someone to lead her to repentance and, salvation.

Your anger is not going to change our path. Your forgiveness and mercy, holding out hope for a future in Christ might hide us in Him during these perilous times.

We need Godly warriors that hear from the throne.

Forgive my frustration at your article. I believe you know God so, I read your blog
in hopes of finding a fire burning that will fan the flames of my own heart.

I suppose I should stop reading as I generally leave with a sad, pained, heart.
I do hope and pray that the Lord will restore the joy of your salvation.
I too hate what has become of America. But, it is the Church that let America down. Greedy feel good entertaining preachers. They are still at it, saying sinners are going to heaven. Movies, television, worldly music, this is what happened to America. America is worshipping self. You know God will not have it.

We fight to kill the unborn and, fight to save the dogs. We don't want the inconvenience of children. So, we adopt pets and, pamper them. All while children
are suffering in this nation. Don't you think God is angry?

Judgement is coming to His house first. Please pray for us, we need mercy and deliverance from our ignorance due to the blindness of our hearts. Amen
