Animal Farm

Animal Farm This is always a book I enjoy reading. It is the third time I have read it. The first time I read it was in freshman year of high school. It was a required reading in my freshman year american government class. I did enjoy it, however, I did not get the real true meaning behind it as I do now. Come on, I was 14...all I cared about then was which boy was the cutest, the clothes I wore, the amount of hairspray I put in my hair to make it as big as possible (does aqua net bring back any memories to you folks? ) I believe , in my personal opinion that this book should be read by every voting American when we have a major election coming up. But, of course, that won't happen because I believe a lot of people like to stay in the ignorant bliss they like to be in and just be want to believe what they are told by others instead of researching facts themselves. Hence, why what happens in this book does and has happened around the world. I also believe it could happen here if we get to the point of the majority of people not getting educated on the issues and think it is the government's job to take care of us. I shudder to think...I am so enraged in them buying stocks in the banks.... They have slowly for years gotten their hands in every area possible. IT IS NOT THEIR JOB TO TAKE CARE OF US>>>IT IS TO LEAD US. I like to hear all points from every side and I am very thankful for certain news stations and radio talk shows that will offer a more conservative view that the main stream media will not tell us. I always say "Can I please buy my own island and live on it?" I am so tired of political correctness because God forbid the minority view points get offended. Hey..what about half the crap that goes on that offends me as a bible believing, JESUS follower that I can't talk about. Most of my viewpoints are considered to be offensive, bigoted and wrong. I am intolerant in my beliefs. Can I ask something? How is it that it is o.k. to be tolerant of everything but what this country is built on, the bible and christian beliefs? This makes no sense. It is o.k. to talk about God but mention Jesus in public , and watch out... somebody might get offended. Well here are my thoughts ...too bad...I am offended that I can't talk about my Lord and Savior...the one who sacrificed His life for me, suffered for something he did not deserve so that I would not get what I do deserve, did something that other religion's "god" has ever done (come back to life)so that I can spend eternity ( which is a whole lot longer than the 70 years I may get to spend here) in a place where there is no sadness and tears. I will now be reading something that will not get me so fired up,although I do believe in these times we are in it is good to get a little fired up...that is when I believe changes in this country will happen. I also think that come Nov 4Th....there will be a change and I believe that it will not be what everybody says and thinks it is going to be. I will just sit back and smile quietly knowing that God is in complete control of the entire situation.
