King Solomon, Political Madness and Folly in the USA
Read if you are concerned or interested.
Three thousand years ago, King Solomon was believed to be the wisest man in the world. He decided to seek out, observe, and experience every possibility in life, He busied himself in learning, gathering knowledge and even engaging first hand in every extravagance, including madness and folly that one may experience in life.
Why did he study madness and folly. Because to know madness and folly – A knowledge of folly would help him to discern wisdom, and to exercise that chief function of practical wisdom – to avoid folly.
He began studying plants, animals, and the universe. He observed and judged the follies of all brought before him and began writing proverbs to give guidance how his subjects should seek knowledge and wisdom.
Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)
Later on in life, when he realized his own madness and folly, he wrote that all his efforts were a useless chasing after the wind. His country was deep in debt, his subjects complained of high taxes, and the result was after he died, his kingdom split in two and in time was conquered by other nations.
How Does This Relate?
No longer will it be necessary for a parent of a child in a school to make a principal aware their child was a transgender and needs special consideration and privacy.
Our wise politicians and judges have decided that every school principal in the USA does not have enough compassion and common sense to address this issue without the USA Federal Courts intervening. Only a politician or judge are wise enough to decide Potty Rights in the USA.
Compare this situation to the following first paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence.
When in the Course of human events, It becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
In My Opinion
We do not need States to decide to seperate from our Union or another Civil War. All we need to do is vote out a lot of the current politicians and judges running our country in the next election.
Why? Here are A Few Reasons.
The USA is 20 Trillion in Debt and pays one half trillion dollars a year in interest to mainly foreign holders of US Treasury Bills, Notes, and Bonds.
The current USA deficit trade balances exceed one half trillion dollars a year because of foolish trade agreements. These dollars are being used by trade nations to build modern infrastructures and military rather than in the USA.
The middle class is shrinking because livable wage job opportunities have been outsourced to other countries. College students are making loans that will take a lifetime to repay. Fifty million Americans are in poverty and on food stamps, rent subsidies, etc
Eighty percent of US assets are owned by ten percent of the population. US farmland is rapidly being bought up by foreign interests.
The US is paying the costs to engage in war and police nations all over the world. While at the same time, US borders are wide open for drugs to be smuggled into the USA to expand drug addiction to our young.
Health costs and drugs are unaffordable and insurers are mandating higher and higher policy costs and insurance medical deductions by the insured.
Crime is again rising and jails are so full that convicted criminals are being released to cut costs.
Schools are failing to teach minimum educational standards
I will not bring up morality.
Taxes are increasing. Government is increasing.
The US allows one million legal immigrants to become citizens every year to replace one million American children being aborted every year in the USA.
Etc. etc. ….
After reading and listening to today’s news, and then hearing what the latest priority of our President and Federal Attorney General in spite of all our other problems, what comes to my mind is what King Solomon discerned.
These two words best describe what is taking place now as a result of our politicians and judges managing our country, and that is.,.,…..Madness and Folly.
