The matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. Daniel 4:17
I had intended to write about Antiochus Epiphanes, I really did. But instead this will be a mini state of the nation address. I promise it will be short and I hope, not boring at all.
To talk about the president and his first "lady" may seem to be a total departure from the Bible, but there is a saying that we get the government we deserve. You can gauge a nation's merit by its leaders.
This goes far beyond mere politics, to the freakish nature of our first couple. There have been rumors that Obama and Michele were all mixed up in the gender department. Pictures of Michele show her wide shoulders, adam's apple, and most tellingly, the length of her ring fingers. Men's ring fingers are longer than their forefingers.
I will not involve the apostle Paul in this one, though he writes about it most clearly. Instead I will invoke, of all people, Joan Rivers.

In the linked video below, she is in the light of day, as she wearily answers the reporter's question, "Do you think we'll ever have a gay president?". She tells him that we already do, and that his partner is a "tranny". "Everybody knows that," she says dismissively. Such naivety. not to know this.
But the man with the mike is young. He may even believe in his once-great nation. To me, it is a dead duck. It is a MacArthur Park cake, melting in the rain. Put it back together? We'll never find that recipe again.
