Our current president, widely known for teleprompter usage, must be getting his wisdom from a teleprompter. He recently said that closing the border with Mexico because of the Pig Flu "would be akin to closing the barn door after the horses are out, because we already have cases here in the United States." With all due respect sir, when sick horses continue to leave the barn and mingle with other horses that would not ordinarily be exposed, it is PAST time to close the barn doors. The Divine wisdom given by God in dealing with leprosy would be very appropriate to follow at this point, isolation for the sick and restoration after they are healed.

We find that his advisors are also drinking from the same cup of wisdom. Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Secretary said, "this virus is already in the United States. Any containment theory ... is really moot at this time." And to think of all the things I could have gotten away with had my parents bought into that theory when I was a lot younger. Oh I get it. We'll sin that grace may abound. GOD FORBID.

But instead of worrying about people's health, this method of operation has been chosen because closing the borders would not be economically advantageous or so they say.

Close the borders till the flu dies off and then reopen them! It really is that simple and it doesn't take a teleprompter to figure that out.

Mrs. V,
I'll probably become a little more political with what I post here for a while. I've struggled with whether I should or should not and cannot shake the need to address some of the thoughts coming out of D.C.

Thanks for your kind words.

Luke, don't forget that money is more important than people to some folks. ;)

What really hit me about how the media is reporting this is their saying that the spread is on a decline in Mexico. Well duh - the entire country (and especially Mexico City) is closed down! Of course it isn't spreading as rapidly as it could have. Unfortunately, I think we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Come this fall, when flu season peaks, I'm afraid that this strain will be much more lethal and rampant.

Luke, I'm curious about your thoughts on the Napolitano report...I bet you could blog for days on that one!

And finally...I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond to a comment that you left on my husband's blog a while back (I've just figured out how to link to comments). Anyway, I have updated his testimony with photo's, and I hope to start posting there again soon about some of the amazing things that God is doing in our lives.

Thank you for your comment, and I'll be checking back here to see what topic you'll be covering next. (Homeland Security? hint, hint)
God bless you, Kim

Of course money is more important than people Byron. Hasn't this new government here in the USA shown that?!

I'm still blown away by the work God is doing in your life and your husband's as well. All praise to God!!!

I'm also curious to see how the next flu season interacts with this pig flu. I hope it isn't the tip of an iceberg but it would seem that is indeed what we are looking at and all the medicine in the world cannot do what one nation turning to the Lord could!!!

I'll take your challenge about the Napolitano report and see what I can come up with.
