Your View: President needs to focus on jobs creation

Mar. 07, 2013 @ 02:07 AM

When will this president start working on jobs again? He only wanted to talk about it to get another four years of living in the people’s house, and once he got in he does not even talk about it.
He will talk about anything to try and keep the American people from asking him about jobs. That is why he would never go on Fox News, because he would be asked about jobs and what his plan is for the deficit. How can we put all his programs in place and he say it will not add one cent to the deficit?
Come on, the president should do as one of his favorite sayings goes: do the right thing. He should tell us his plans. We only know about one part of the plan and that is for all working people to be taxed more with no more jobs and much more debt for America to pay.

Obama won votes with campaign promises
The truth is coming out as always.
Remember how gas suddenly dropped just before the election? Three months later, it shoots up again. What does that show you?
Gays and unmarried people are promised protection for their sexual gratification. God’s word was mocked and said to be a lie. Illegal immigrants were promised a free ride for early citizenship. Lies and deceit were what this election was all about. When people finally ever realize this, maybe it will wise them up.
I bet Biden, Clinton and Obama were grinning like three mules chewing briars when they saw how they had made fools of gays and minorities for early citizenship. And to do your own thing. Morals have no business in today’s America.
“We will see.”
Now people are invited to mosque to see how it is. This will promote Muslim faith. Incidentally, for gays and sex before marriage is something you should find out how Muslim law feels about it. Then you will see Obama’s face behind the mask.

Holding hatred for others isn’t biblical
I am saddened by the hatred that some professed “Christians” have for the unsaved. It is tragic.
Yes, God hates sin and the wrath of God abides upon Christ-rejecters (John 3:36); but let us never stray from the great biblical doctrine of God’s wondrous love for mankind, which allowed Christ to be nailed to the cross for our sins. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Notice the words, “God so loved THE WORLD.” All of them. We don’t get to pick and choose!
