Observations

One cannot help but wonder, given all the sturm un drang occurring in DC and in other parts of of the Country, notably California with all the sexcapaces in Hollyweird and TV, if something of Biblical proportions isn’t happening in SoCal.

After Noah was run through the rinse cycle, God said he would never use water to cleanse the Earth again. He didn’t say a word about Frogs, Boils, Locusts, Pestilence or Famine. Come to think of it, Fire wasn’t mentioned either. He did a fairly decent job on Sodom and Gomorrah and turned Lot’s wife into a salt lick for errant bovines because she couldn’t follow directions.
Now look at the area of SoCal that is being brought up short for naughty behavior. It is not up in the pot head area north of the Capitol. That is fairly conservative country. Nope, this is down in the area where there are six or seven different sexes and 14 genders.
This is also where they have the likes of Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi and Gov. Moonbeam. That alone is sufficient to get a squinty eyed look from some higher plane.

There are those that will tell you there is no God; others say there is. All I can say is I don’t know, but I operate on the principle that it is better to believe some power put all this together and die find out I’m wrong, rather than believe there isn’t any superior power and find out there is. What does one say then? OOPS?

Meanwhile, anyone have any answer for why those fires in SoCal keep burning and they can’t get ahead of them.
