We suffer same fate as citizens of Cyprus
I marvel at the outrage expressed by so many Americans that the citizens of Cyprus might have a portion of their savings confiscated. The only thing outrageous about it is how clear and measurable the theft would be.
Compare this to our esteemed Federal Reserve that creates money out of thin air, making each existing dollar worth less and less and less. It's a difference without distinction. The results of this "printing" are not as clear as outright confiscation but I surmise that is the plan. We should expect it to continue.
As voters, we keep electing those that enrich themselves and their Wall Street friends.

God opposes Senate Bill 139 and all who support it
This is why our nation is in such a mess. In response to Senate Bill 139, Romans 1:21-32 says, "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature, and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet … Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whispers …"
That's what Senate Bill 139 is all about, and God is against it, and all that are for it, vote it down!
