Quoting from a theological dictionary:
God's intention and desire to bless humanity is a central focus of his covenant relationships. For this reason, the concept of blessing pervades the biblical record. Two distinct ideas are present. First, a blessing was a public declaration of a favored status with God. Second, the blessing endowed power for prosperity and success. In all cases, the blessing served as a guide and motivation to pursue a course of life within the blessing.
Considering the prosperity in the US, especially relative to the rest of the world, for the past century or two, I'd say this fits. Although I do feel that we are in the process of losing that status, and we will watch the demise of this great nation.
We're (the US) one of Israel's strongest and most powerful allies (sans the weakened support by the current administration). Your "Israel" comment is buffoonery.
As an aside, the day our support for Israel stops, so will our existence as a "blessed" nation. (Replace "blessed" with any positive adjective ascribable to our "greatest nation on God's green earth").
Unbelievable! They start moving in a direction that they've been criticized for NOT moving in/adopting and what's the response from the/. snots? I guess it takes some honor/courage/maturity to give credit when it's due.
The election results are in, and there are one trillion web pages now up helping you find out what happened. The short story is that the Republicans cleaned up, although the Democrats maintain a one-seat majority in the Senate. The GOP now has 239 seats in the house, giving them a huge lead over the Dems' 183.
Welcome back, GOP! Who the hell voted for the dem morons anyway! Nice change, eh? How are your portfolios doing? Know anyone out of work? Thanks for several months of decline left-wingers. Wonder how the market will do today???
Damn right this is flame bait! Mod it, liberal nerd.
