Obama absent during tenure

Milt Hankins is so far out of touch that he is pitiful, so wrong on all his articles it's funny.

First Obama has been on vacation since he took office. In other words he is absent when it comes to doing what is right with our country. Maybe he has only had a few days vacation, however, he has been absent without anything but blame for the Republicans.

He has spent more time campaigning than he has in the White House, and rarely has he ever spent time talking to Congress or the Senate. Also count the paid vacations that his wife and her friends that she takes with her.

Milt forgets that every time Obama goes on a campaign in Air Force One, it's at the taxpayers' expense. What a joke for a president and for a former minister and theologian. His articles keep me laughing all the time.

Our country needs prayer

Atheists are certain that if we don't take drastic action against the human race and stop heating our homes in winter and stop cooling our homes in summer the oceans will rise by three feet in 100 years. They are not aware that in 100 years the earth would not support the glut of human beings and the animals that we protect more than human life. That is when it will be necessary to decide who and what will die to make room for food and a place to sleep. Or, for those who believe the Bible, those conditions will never be. Those seven years of tribulation will come first.

Too many children in the United States currently do not know what it means to have a decent God-fearing family. Children need a mother and a father that live with them in the same household and that provide the benefits that only a mother and father can provide. When people rely on government ordained and promoted systems to raise children, such as same sex people or unmarried partners, the children are deprived of the warm, secure advantage of family life. You might as well dump them into government programs at birth.

The mass dilution of our society is helping to end the Judeo-Christian family life that made this country great. Our government helps promote sinful practices and there is an extreme shortage of decent politicians. Pray.
