Jonah and the People of Nineveh

In the case of Jonah, we understand that he is remember for having been swallowed by a large fish. People get hung up on what kind of fish it was and whether that was even possible. I take my cue from Jesus Himself who referred to Jonah in one of His sermons recorded in Matthew 12:40 when He said, “for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Jesus understood the events of Jonah’s life to have actually happened as recorded in Scripture, so that is good enough for me.

How Is This Explained Rationally?

I just don’t get it, frankly. I recently saw photos of young male Muslims in Sweden who took joy in abusing, skinning, and decapitating at least one cat, probably more of them. They posed for the camera with smirks/grins on their faces as if laughing at the world. Not long before that, I saw another couple of photos of different young male Muslims in the Middle East carrying a cat that had been crucified on a cross.

Stupid Behavior From the Left

The assumption by businesses like Waffle House that are anti-2nd Amendment is that by making a rule that no criminal in his/her right mind would ever follow, the folks at Waffle House somehow believe they have made their restaurants safer. Doing a quick search of the Internet exposes the problem. Crooks don’t care about a sign or policy that says no guns allowed, except for one very important piece of data. They know that law-abiding citizens will obey the law, which means the crook will literally have no problem going into any anti-2nd Amendment facility and taking what they want.

It’s Starting to Happen…

What good is the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights if our elected officials refuse to abide by the tenets within them, in spite of the fact that they take an oath promising to do so? Of course, the Left would argue that they are upholding their understanding of the Constitution. That’s garbage and they know it, but the Left likes to play dumb when it’s convenient for them. They do that a lot and when they have absolutely nothing else to say or do, they resort to calling conservatives names. It’s all so childish, but they get away with it because of the Left’s stranglehold on the media and they put a lot of emotion into it too, which makes people believe they’re consciences are at work. In truth, they have no conscience because it’s been seared to the non-working point.

Some Things Are Just Too Obvious

And here I was, watching two of those “colorful characters” as they went about their daily lives in what would turn out to be the saving grace for a trucker hauling a load of valuable…cows. Now, I like cows, mind you, mainly because my sister did. They’re interesting creatures and pretty lovable. They’re also good to eat.

Just Stand…

If I arrived home to see someone running from my home and carrying my valuables, I would not chase them down, nor would I shoot after them. They’re heading away from me, therefore they pose no threat to me at all. Whatever they may have taken is replaceable. For me, I would simply call the police and then do what I could to reinforce the place(s) where the criminal was able to gain entrance to my home.

The Absurdity of the Situation

I had to laugh. Was that really their take on it or is that what Mr. Obama really said. Well, as much as I hated to do it, I looked for and found a transcript of his State of the Union speech online and read through it. Sure enough, he said, “It is our generation’s task, then, to reignite the true engine of America’s economic growth — a rising, thriving middle class.” [1] There it is, in print and it was the third paragraph of his speech, so he wasted no time in getting to that point.
