Lloyd’s Life Lessons: Are Our Pets Spiritual Assignments
I believe our pets are spiritually assigned to us. Mary and I had a Border Collie which apparently was not meant to be with us. He dug his way out under our backyard fence and disappeared. Mary searched for him at three dog pounds without success.
At one of the pounds, Mary and a big black Border Collie connected. She told an attendant, if no one claims him, I will come and get him.
The next day, the pound called to inform Mary the collie was scheduled to be “put down” that day. Mary was headed out the door of our Maryland home to visit her parents in West Virginia. She asked if they could hold the dog until she returned a day or so later. They replied, “No”.
So, Mary picked up “Rush” and took him with her to visit her parents. Mary said Rush appeared extremely nervous and fearful and never left her side. Every time she fed the dog, he would take his paw and tip over his bowl. He would eat a little of his food and bury the rest for later.
It took a while before Rush grasped the concept that we would feed him every day. The slightest raise in our voices would cause Rush to shake, run and hide with his tail between his legs. If anyone walked within five feet of Rush, he would get up and move. Obviously, the poor dog had been abused.
Rush also had a fear of being left behind. Whenever Mary brought out our suitcases, Rush would follow us from room to room.
You can imagine Rush’s panic seeing us filling the moving fan to relocate to Florida.
Rush had several health issues which baffled our vets. Numerous drugs did not stop Rush from periods of losing hair and emitting a foul odor. Still, Rush was our dog. God had assigned him to us.
There are people like our dog Rush who have been kicked around and abused so much and for so long, they expect it. When true love, care and understanding comes along, it takes awhile for them to believe and accept it.
During a thunder storm, a frighten, shivering and almost blind little Cocker Spaniel appeared on our front porch. We called him “puppy”. We thought by not giving him a formal name, we would not get too attached and stay open to finding him a home. We paid for surgery on puppy’s eyes.
When we relocated to Florida from Maryland, the moving van went ahead of us. We drove down in our car with Puppy and Rush who was stinking to high heaven in the back seat; twelve hundred miles.
God truly does give you the grace to do what He has called you to do.
We had both dogs for at least fifteen years. Puppy still eventually went blind. Rush became Puppy’s seeing eye dog companion. When Rush died, Puppy died a month later.
We gave both dogs, Rush and Puppy, good extended lives.

Samuel L. Jackson: Look Beyond Race, Assess The Man!
Are you as sick of hearing me talking about race as I am talking about it? For crying out loud, all I ask is that liberals please, please, please look beyond their emotions and Obama’s skin color and honestly assess the man. It is stunning that liberals still think I should be totally committed to supporting this man solely because he is America’s first black president and we share the same skin-color.
Suppose the black pastor of a church was discovered to be a child molester? Would the congregation continue to support their pedophile pastor because they share the same skin-color? Of course, not.
And yet, black actor Samuel L. Jackson, his liberal Hollywood buddies and a majority of black voters believe Obama’s character, policies and agenda are irrelevant. Jackson said he voted for Obama because he is black. http://politi.co/AktzCW Americans are expected to mindlessly support Obama, especially black Americans, solely because Obama is black. Folks, not only is such thinking immoral, racist and scary, it is just plain stupid. By the way, I looove Samuel L. Jackson movies.
As Leader of the Free World, Obama’s character and agenda are of the utmost importance. His skin color should be irrelevant. And yet, small-minded black racists and guilt-driven whites believe loyalty to skin-color should trump everything; right and wrong, good and evil. Sadly, Obama has caused even some Christians to forsake their first love, Christ, to worship an idol of race.
When Obama attacked freedom of religion by demanding that Catholic institutions fund baby killing, liberal Catholics continued their mantra, must support the black president. Committed Christians yelled, No, Mr President! Put us in jail, but we will not deny Christ for your evil mandate! A master of lies, manipulation, smoke and mirrors, Obama said, OK, I will order insurance companies to offer free abortion/contraceptive services. Bull Hockey! Nothing in life is free.
By forcing private insurance companies to provide free baby killing services, Obama is continuing his trashing of our Constitution. The president has no authority to force private industry to provide anything, nor can he force citizens to purchase anything. Obama’s presidency is straight out of the Twilight Zone; an unprecedented outrageous overreach of power and assault on individual freedom. Still, Obama zombies demand that I support my black president. Obama is destroying MY country. Why on earth would I support him?
Urban black student’s in the DC voucher school program were testing through the roof. Obama ended the program pandering to the teachers union whose dues fund the Democratic Party. Obama denied black parents the right to rescue their kids from the dangerous black-board-jungle known as the DC public school system.
Self-induced black genocide. Half of all black babies are aborted. Blacks are the only race in America on the decline. By 2038, the black vote will be insignificant. And yet, Obama is obsessed with forcing taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood. Oh, did I mention that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was an unapologetic racist?
But Samuel, “true brothers” like you expect us to ignore Obama’s passionate loyalty to an organization which was founded to exterminate blacks. Seventy-eight percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are in black neighborhoods. Thirty-five percent of babies aborted in America are black. Could Planned Parenthood be targeting blacks, giving us the “shaft”? Can you dig it?
Despite these documented Obama assaults on freedom, I will receive emails, “You should be ashamed being black and not supporting the president!” I do not reply to people who are “stuck on stupid and racism”.
Here is a video illustrating the vitriolic disdain black mind-numb racists have for black conservatives. “Click Here” This bullying black radio show host viciously attacks his female black conservative guest; insulting everything from her intellect to her physical appearance. He drills her. “Do you support Barack Obama?” His template – blacks not supporting Obama regardless of his policies/agenda are stupid traitors. He also believes the tea party is racist and blacks who belong to it are a disgrace.
I would have boldly proclaimed, “NO!, I do not support Obama. YES!, I am a proud member of the Tea Party” Then, I would proceed to nail that “jive turkey” to the wall with truth and facts. Though the host still would not get it, I prayerfully believe some in his audience would hear and receive the truth.
Mr Jackson, America has been pretty darn good to you. Your extraordinary success as an actor is well deserved. You earned it. But, what will in take for successful blacks such as you to set aside their bitterness and racism and liberal whites to get over their guilt to consider what is best for all Americans? Enough with the tired old 70s militant black rhetoric.
Mr Jackson, saying you support Obama solely because he is black is a slap in the face to the millions of your fellow American white fans who pay ten bucks a pop to see your movies. It is shameful for you to make such a blatantly racist proclamation. C’mon bro, I believe you are better than that.
America Desperately Needs A Hero…but Who?
Stunned Americans are asking, “Why would Obama, in an election year, boldly trash the first amendment, forcing Catholic institutions to provide birth control, abortion drugs, and other contraceptive services which go against their faith?” These baffled, naïve people still do not get it. First and foremost, Obama is a hardcore leftist hater of America as we know it. He is laser-focused on implementing his vowed fundamental transformation of America into a socialistic, secular-progressive Disneyland.
As proven by their gleeful willingness to exempt Obama from the usual vetting process during his 2008 presidential campaign, the liberal mainstream media has given Obama every reason to be confident in their cover and support as Obama ignores the Constitution to fulfill his anti-America anti-freedom agenda.
For three years, we have witnessed Obama slowly peeling off his well-crafted “moderate” mask. Our first glimpse of the real Obama was his unprecedented government hostile takeover of private secular auto companies and his bullying banks to accept government bailouts.
Then, despite a majority of Americans screaming “No!” to ObamaCare, Obama basically said “screw y’all” and forced the passage of his health care bill. A Rasmussen poll that week showed that 55% of Americans wanted it repealed. It did not matter. The king had decreed it so. Displaying off-the-chain arrogance and dictatorial power, Obama’s enforcer, Nancy Pelosi, ruled that “[w]e have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Yes, even Democrats who voted to pass the bill were clueless regarding its content. Obama revealed a little more of the man behind the mask.
Due to my commitment to make my point as concisely as possible, I will not list Obama’s unprecedented overreaching power-grabs, trashing of the Constitution, and crimes against individual freedoms. Let’s just say that Obama has revealed two-thirds of his true face. What we are seeing is more horrifying than anyone could have possibly imagined.
If un-repealed, ObamaCare will literally give this man (Obama) power to dictate which Americans live or die — that is, total control of our lives. Lord help us. Only God should have such power.
My black centenarian grandmother cried tears of joy when Obama was elected. Ironically, her hero’s government-controlled health care, which will be rationed, equals a death sentence for my grandma if she needs an expensive procedure. Economist Thomas Sowell points out that government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. The sick, the elderly, and the disabled will suffer the most when the government rations care. Obama blatantly suggested that a senior might consider taking a pill rather than having surgery.
Clearly, Obama feels emboldened to do whatever he pleases. If Obama is arrogant enough to ignore the First Amendment and “dis” a huge bloc of Catholic supporters in an election year, think how full-blown, no-hold-barred, out-of-control his attacks on freedom will be if he is re-elected.
To save America, we must select a conservative nominee best capable of defeating Obama. I believe that candidate is Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum.
Now, I respect y’all too much to blow smoke claiming Newt to be a great conservative. Frankly, his attacks on Bain Capital infuriated me. However, there are things I love about Newt. Newt is brilliant at articulating conservatism and experienced at successfully implementing conservative ideas. But most of all, Newt understands that the biggest, most destructive threat to America as we know it is Barrack Hussein Obama. And also extremely important is the fact that Newt is not intimidated by the “race thing.” Newt does not give a hoot about being called a racist. Newt is fearlessly eager to aggressively address America’s problem which is Obama.
Mitt Romney and Ron Paul are good, decent men. However, I do not believe that Romney has the stomach to say and do what needs to be done to defeat Obama. While I will enthusiastically support whichever of our candidates winning the Republican nomination, I disagree with Paul’s foreign policy ideas.
I really like Santorum. However, I am not confident that he can raise the funds necessary to override Obama’s billion-dollar campaign.
Also, right or wrong, like it or not, a presidential candidate has to have “it,” a special charisma. How else could an inexperienced freshman senator like Obama win the presidency of the United States? Newt Gingrich has “it.” Again, I admit, he “ain’t” perfect. But Newt does not wish to end America as we know it. Obama does and will!
Brother and sister patriot Americans, like Bonnie Tyler sang in her song, “I Need a Hero,” America desperately needs a hero. I believe that that person is Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum.
If Obama is allowed to continue his occupation of the White House after November 6, 2012, he will boldly remove his mask, completely revealing his face. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
