Hard Work

“Surprisingly few men are lacking in capacity, but they fail because they are lacking in application. Either they never learn how to work, or, having leared, they are too indolent to apply themselves with the seriousness and the attention that is necessary to solve important problems. “

Any reward that is worth having only comes to the industrious. The success which is made in any walk of life is measured almost exactly by the amount of hard work that is put into it.”

Hey buddy, you got change for a trillion?

How do you solve a problem in today’s world?

It’s easy.

Throw money at it.

I’m serious. It doesn’t matter what the problem is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a big problem or a little problem. If it’s a problem, the solution is money. Preferably trillions of dollars.

And don’t worry if you don’t actually have trillions of dollars lying around in your bank account. All you have to do is print new money.

Then throw the money at the problem and the problem is solved.

How to fix America

A tip from God on how to fix a country that is collapsing.

In case you haven’t noticed, America is on a steep and possibly fatal decline.

Divisions, hate, racism, inflation, cancel culture, normalization of obscene behavior … are just a few of the ills plaguing our society.

Democrats aren’t going to fix it.

Republicans aren’t going to fix it.

The solution isn’t political.

Because the problem isn’t political.

The problem is spiritual.

As a nation, we have turned away from God and are reaping the results of living in a godless society.

You think things are bad now?

Trust me, it will get much worse. Unless …

A few thousand years ago, God told Israel that if they turned away from Him, the nation would face drought, crop failures, pestilence, and destruction. But God also told them there was a solution. Perhaps, that solution is also available to us.
