Ogaden's Plight - The Most Crippling Problems That Faces The Ogaden

The developed states in this human race are traveling to the moon and back, breaking new bounds in scientific discipline and surpassing economical growing that tin only be dreamt of. Then why is the Ogaden, and for that substance Africa, still crawling in the mud?

Historically, Africa have been robbed of its people by bondage and robbed of its natural resources in the clip of the so called "Scramble for Africa" which is known to us as the African Colonization (19th century). So Africa was initially crippled. However, some states fared better than others. Federal Democratic Republic Of Ethiopia was the lone state not to be colonised by the Europeans as it was defeat by greed and helped the Europeans to take over Africa. The most unfortunate is the Ogaden region, which funnily adequate was given to Federal Democratic Republic Of Ethiopia as a "thank you" present by United Kingdom which was and is still illegal. Federal Democratic Republic Of Ethiopia still goes on to depredation the Ogaden with its cruel and inhumane regime.

The Ogaden have been through so much and many of its jobs are owed to external parties, mainly the meagre aid from the international community. The international community have turned their dorsums on the Ogaden region, mostly because to the Ogaden part would intend straying away from their way of the human race economical race. Ethiopia's illegal government is covering up the Ogaden's right for freedom. It is also well on its manner to set it ego in a favourable visible light to the international eye. I would very much like to ran into Ethiopia's praseodymium & selling squad as they are doing a very good occupation of distortion the truth in the Ogaden region!

Freedom for the Ogaden part is an weaponry length away and it is only a substance of clip till the Ogaden part acquires its deserved freedom! But the Ogaden part necessitates to speed up this clip since it have been freedom less for some clip now and the remainder of the human race have advanced both economically and technologically. Once the Ogaden part acquires its right to freedom, it have to catch up to the remainder of the human race and most of Africa is struggling to make this so it's imperative that the Ogaden part wins freedom as quickly as possible.

Welcome Money

In years gone by I refused to be rich or get married a rich man. What ever could I have got been thinking? Besides noting that the affluent were marks for the thieves and kidnappers, there was the component of greed, enticement and lecherousness of the flesh, pridefulness of life that endangered my ageless life. Somewhere along the timeline of this life the decision was arrived at that we were far better off making ends ran into and life from payroll check to paycheck.

Even knowing that Psalm 24;1 The Earth is the LORD's, and the comprehensiveness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein: Haggai 2;8 (King Jesse James Version) 8 The Ag is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Godhead of hosts and Saint Matthew 19:23 Then said Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth unto his disciples, Verily Iodine state unto you, That a rich adult male shall hardly come in into the land of heaven.

24 And again I state unto you, It is easier for a camel to travel through the oculus of a needle, than for a rich adult male to come in into the land of God.

25 When his adherents heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With work force this is impossible; but with Supreme Being all things are possible.

I have got persisted in my antipathy to more than than enough.

Until now small have been asked of me in the manner of giving as nil other was in my hand. My Black Maria outcry for more than than so that Iodine could give more have not been answered. Are this the manner for all place shapers or have got I missed that boat? It occurred to this Grandma that possibly Supreme Being the Father had a word for me about this.

Since a batch of our job with apprehension is rooted in our heads where judgments,vows and promises are made I took stock of the manner I see finances and why that position is mine.

Turns out that fearfulness regulations there in my pocket book keeping it tight close from any incoming filthy lucre. Why? My household intends so much more than than anything in this present life that a finding to protect them kept the ebbing and flowing of finances still. Stagnation resulted as no religion was in action that would swear Supreme Being with all the details.

Jesus told people to give unto Ceasar the things that are the authorities and to Supreme Being the things that are Gods. Saint Matthew 22:18 Therefore taxations must be paid along with every purchase and service and land owned. Cockamamie me messed up the message because of fear.

Recently repentance in my spirit caused an gap in the fiscal section for all incoming monies. The love of money was not establish there but the good usage disclosure was present. Needs are great in Christ's Church and are to be met by His religion walking Christians with unfastened Black Maria and unfastened billfolds to have and give out again. No squandering, no withholding of commodity or services will be tolerated.

Give and it shall be given unto you, pressed down, shaken together, running over shall work force give into your bosom. Saint Luke 6:38.

Riches are not to be held onto but shared where needed. My door is now unfastened to profits and gifts and instead of hating money I state 'welcome to money' to be set to good usage for the Maestro of my soul.

I will swear the Godhead and His angels to cover me and mine in malice of the thieves and robbers and vile kidnappers. After all the head stealer and slayer is Satan. Have my Jesus and Godhead not kept us out of the vilest one's appreciation all these fantastic years? Yes He has.

Gardening 101

Then He told this parable, "A adult male had a figure tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not happen any. So he said to the adult male who took attention of the vineyard, 'For three old age now I've been coming to look for fruit on this figure tree and haven't establish any. Cut it down! Why should it utilize up the soil?'

'Sir,' the adult male replied, 'leave it alone for one more than year, and I'll delve around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.'" Saint Luke 13:6-9

We have got respective immature fruit trees in our yard, but so far no fruit. One of the up-to-the-minute trees my hubby planted was a pear tree. We got so excited to see bantam small pears begin to grow. We were just as deflated when they withered up and drop off before they were mature.

Just like our pear tree, the fable shows that the figure tree was not bearing fruit for the master. That was the tree's intent for life - bearing fruit. Not only was it not serving its purpose, but it was also taking up valuable space in the vineyard.

I have got got read this fable many modern times in the past and have seen the same thing over and over. It wasn't until this morning time that the Godhead showed me a different position to see it from - the gardener's perspective.

First of all, the nurseryman showed his concern for the tree as he pled for the proprietor to save it. He actually interceded for the tree.

Secondly, he was not ready to give up hope. When you believe about 3 old age with no fruit, it really sounds like a long clip to wait. He was also still willing to pass his clip and energy to take attention of the tree. It is really difficult to go on to foster something when you make not see results.

As I read this, Supreme Being showed me that we necessitate to be more than like the nurseryman when dealing with unfruitful believers. Bash we always maintain them in our supplications and plead for them? Bash we intercede with a sense of urgency?

We cannot give up or lose hope for them. Instead, we must go on to foster them in hope that they will go endorse to carry through the intent the Godhead have got got set for them.

I also inquire if the figure tree would have begun to bear fruit if the nurseryman would have "put the tree down" and talked about it behind it's back. Somehow, I believe nurturing would have got better results. However, so many modern times we speak about people who have got fallen away from serving the Lord. No wonderment it takes so long for them to return.

My hubby will go on to care for the pear tree in hopes that adjacent twelvemonth we will have got fruit. I had to wait for 4 old age for my paeonies to bloom! Honestly, Iodine had given up hope, but I'm glad I waited. When they did finally bloom, they were gorgeous and lasted for weeks! How much better volition it be when our blood brothers and ses in Jesus tax return for service? Until then, intercede, nurture, and make not lose hope.

How To Find Al-Qaeda - Not As Far Fetched An Idea As You May Think

The United States have 10s of one thousands of people searching for Al-qaeda. People sitting behind desks pouring over written documents and photos, people listening to dwell communication theory or computing machine flagged communications, scouring the internet, on the land doing interviews, military doing searches, artificial satellites taking pictures, and the listing travels on. It affects the military, FBI, CIA, NSA and an untold figure of other three missive departments.

Since 9/11 Al-qaeda have been the focusing of everything in the Center East. Even things going on in State Of Israel have got taken a dorsum place to the "War on Terror". Personally I believe it's a good thing. Al-qaeda and every other panic organisation demand to be held accountable. It doesn't impact just the United States it impacts everyone worldwide. So, the Hunt is on, in and by states all over the world. Despite differences that be on the political presence between countries, this is one thing that most of them have got in common.

Listening to the news, reading the paper, checking out international news agencies, listening to the "experts", reading armed forces and authorities fourth estate releases it looks that Al-qaeda be givens to be a difficult animate being to catch. You would believe they were almost as difficult to happen as Sasquatch or the Loch Cape Monster. Every twenty-four hours you hear they are hiding in the mountains, living in small towns among the people, have got encampments that move around and it travels on. Oklahoma it's understandable that they would travel around and hide. Wouldn't you make the same if people were hunting you down to kill you?

The thing that amazes me though, is that we go on to see "special reports" from the news agencies. Their cleft newsmen on the land look to be able to happen the Al-qaeda with relative ease, follow them around, talking to them and acquire some great footage. So how is it they can happen them but the military have such as a difficult time? The adjacent obvious inquiry is why aren't newsmen and news federal agencies passing this information on to the military? With the figure of particular studies I've seen I'd make bold state the news have been everywhere with them. My greatest fearfulness is that the news people are not telling the military in an attempt to acquire that adjacent large narrative to trump card the other news agencies. Sadly, at the disbursal of United States and other states military force lives.

So maybe the military demands to re-evaluate how they are hunting the Al-qaeda. Instead of following and trailing them why don't they begin tracking the news people? Put trailing devices in the gear wheel or on their bodies. Rich Person the artificial satellites and particular military units path the newsmen and news crews. I believe they might be a small more than successful.

They state that in the United States if person is missing don't name the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Police, happen a newsman and state them the story. They can happen just about anyone. Based on past news studies and large events in the human race I'd make bold twenty-four hours they are better and determination people and information than any intelligence federal agency in the world.

Living in Mexico: Confessions of an Insane Gringo

Let me first say that whether or not I am actually insane could be debated. However, my personal pendulum be givens to swing toward the yes column. So, there you go, my first confession.

The 2nd confession is that I totally acquire that more than than a small offense have been garnered as the consequence of my insane harangue about Gringolandia and her citizens, The Gringolandians. Ok, I acquire why these communities end up coming into existence. It's easier for people to have got a refined and well-developed gringo infrastructure. It is easier living in an enclave where you don't have got got to larn the linguistic communication so you could dwell with the locals.

It is as the Blogger says,

"The overpowering bulk of Gringos who dwell in United Mexican States have moved directly onto a film set...But, this is okay. Most of us love the movies, and here is your opportunity for a plum tree role. Relax and enjoy, dahlings. These, after all, are your Golden Years. Reality, be damned." (Source)

Ok, so I acquire this. World be damned. But, if Iodine can assent to World be damned why am I lying, a recent accusal by my Gringolandia pals, if I dwell in a few twelve articles about the fact that more than than than one or two Real Expats as well as more than few Mexicans I cognize physical object to the Movie Set?

Because I haven't mentioned beginnings of my information, it is now the maxim around the Guanajuato Movie Put that the Insane Gringo is lying about my "someone told me this and another individual told me that…" reporting. If I had not agreed to "off the record" when I talked to these folks who fed me good article fodder then I would not have got had as much to compose about. "A very good thing," I can hear the Guanajuato Gringolandians screeching.

My married woman and I were in the life room of one of those people who I reported was also hit by a bus. I told him of our illustrious Gringolandian pack who claims I lied about that incident. He was not surprised and said if the provoker continued his "Doug is lying through his dentition rant" to allow him cognize and he would put this gomer straight.

My program is to travel to each and every individual who gave me information to inquire them if I can advert their name calling as my beginnings in the event I necessitate to in a court-of-law situation—something recently rumored to be bouncing around the Gringolandia Movie Stars.

My claiming to have got been hit by a autobus have been one of their favourite things to joke and choke over and proclaim that I lied. Well, not only have got it happened to me, and others, I just learned from my friend of a Gringo adult female who not only was hit, but she was on the pavement and the car driver drove onto the pavement and so seriously injured her that she had to be hospitalized and have her leg repaired surgically.

I recently received an electronic mail (I've posted it online) in which a adult female and her girl read my books and articles, and as the result, reported a safe and pleasant clip in Guanajuato without hurt or illness—BECAUSE OF MY WRITING!

Now, right me if I am incorrect here: Isn't 1 gringo getting hit by a autobus one too many? How many times, exactly, must it happen, and to what extent should the gringo's hurts be before these Gringolandians say, "Hey, maybe it's a good thing for Doug to state people where they can avoid getting hit by a bus?"

I have got a chronic unwellness for which there is no cure. I am unsteady on my feet when the symptoms are at their worst. As the result, it makes not take a whole batch to jostle me off a pavement whereupon: BAM! I am clipped by a bus. (Granted, I should have got reported my inability to defy well the shoving in my narratives to get with. However, why, is what I desire to know?)

At certain modern times of the twenty-four hours in Guanajuato, the Guanajuatenses, especially the youth, are not careful in their rushing about on the sidewalks. This is exceedingly unsafe even on a good twenty-four hours for person with my unwellness or person with a handicap. They look not to care but I make not cognize their hearts. You would believe they would halt and assist you when they strike hard you down but they don't. I believe it is mostly carelessness, unthinking youth, but again I don't cognize their hearts. So, how should one attack this?

Silence for fearfulness of being branded a prevaricator by the Gringolandians? Silence for fearfulness of getting arrested by a gringo thought he have more than powerfulness than he does? Are that how it should be handled?

The man, in whose life room we sat yesterday, told us of his understanding with our rating of Guanajuato and her citizens. If person doesn't agree, then fine, but let us to have got our opinions. He, too, is thinking of somewhere else he might go. Nothing's incorrect with that, is there? It doesn't intend Guanajuato isn't correct for those who desire a taste sensation of The Movie Set.

Realty be damned, remember?

He was puzzled at the Guanajuato's Gringolandians' claim and subsequent rumour mongering that I detest Guanajuato. He was puzzled because he's taken the clip to cognize us and thus he cognizes differently—we don't detest Guanajuato. His inquiries were why free address was a seemingly too difficult a conception for these Movie Put lovers to grasp. I could offer no answer.

Another confession:

I love that Mexicans, including the Guanajuatenses, don't border into your business. This is a trademark of the civilization that is so obvious that it was an contiguous attractive force for us. No Mexican, ever, have sought to border into our personal concern nor sought to state us what to make or how we should make it. I love that about Mexicans!

Americans, on the other hand, believe it is their basic human right to not only state you what to make but if you don't make what they say, they volition seek legal means, criminal or civil, to coerce you to make their will.

I also recently learned of one person on The Movie Put who looks to be spearheading having me arrested, jailed, and deported for what, in his self-proclaimed adept cognition of Mexican law, is my alleged law-breaking of libel. He went so far as to have got a meeting about me.

I was forced to seek legal counsel, wage an hourly fee, for what took less than 10 proceedings to happen out that Iodine had libeled no 1 under Mexican or any other country's law. And why? Because of a horrid facet of American Anglo culture.

Just this morning, while picking up laundry, person decided it appropriate, person who did not cognize us from Adam, to inquire why I didn't transport the wash instead of my wife. This was an American woman. A Mexican never would have got asked a alien such as a thing. There I was, a hole in my spinal column and afflicted with a neurological disease on top of that, and this American idea she would border her olfactory organ into our concern to see why the chauvinist hog adult male wasn't carrying the laundry.

It never occurred to this American that perhaps I could not, or was not supposed to, transport heavy loads.

Do You Think Like Royalty?

Exodus 19: 3-8: "And Moses went up to God, and the Godhead called to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall state to the house of Jacob, and state the children of Israel:

4. `You have got seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I tire you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself.

5. `Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and maintain My covenant, then you shall be a particular hoarded wealth to Me above all people; for all the Earth is Mine.

6. `And you shall be to Me a land of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words which you shall talk to the children of Israel.''

7. So Moses came and called for the seniors of the people, and laid before them all these words which the Godhead commanded him.

8. Then all the people answered together and said, "All that the Godhead have spoken we will do.'' Sol Moses brought back the words of the people to the Lord.

When Supreme Being had Moses Pb the Children of State Of Israel out of slavery in Egypt, He clearly had a program for them. He planned for the Children of State Of Israel to be an full state of priests and a holy nation, to function the remainder of mankind, to be the advocator for all the other states before God. God's original program was for every 1 of the children, each individual to be able to near Him, family with Him and talking with Him, and share Him with the remainder of the world.

God shared this Godhead program with Moses, who came back to the people and shared it with them. The Hebrews stood in the presence of God's courier and agreed to God's plan. It is of import for us as trusters to understand, we cannot do promises to Supreme Being rashly. Supreme Being is not a adult male that He should lie and He maintains all His promises and His Word. He anticipates us to make the same!

The job with the Children of State Of Israel is they could not believes like a royal priesthood, they continued to dwell in "slave mentality."
Exodus 19:9-11: "And the Godhead said to Moses, "Behold, I come up to you in the thick cloud, that the people may hear when I talk with you, and believe you forever.'' Sol Moses told the words of the people to the Lord.

10. Then the Godhead said to Moses, "Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and allow them rinse their clothes.

11. "And allow them be ready for the 3rd day. For on the 3rd twenty-four hours the Godhead will come up down upon Saddle Horse Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people."

God told Moses to set up the people, to consecrate them, and cleanse them and the 3rd day, convey them into His presence and He would talk to them. This was the large moment. The time, each individual person, came and heard the voice of their God. What an exciting time, what a fantastic event. But no substance how completely the Children of State Of Israel cleansed and consecrated the outside, they were not changed on the interior and deep in their Black Maria they did not believe like royalty, they thought like slaves, awful and unworthy.

Deuteronomy. 5:22-27: ""These words the Godhead spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the thick of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of rock and gave them to me.

23. "So it was, when you heard the voice from the thick of the darkness, while the mountain was combustion with fire, that you came near to me, all the caputs of your folks and your elders.

24. "And you said: `Surely the Godhead our Supreme Being have got shown us His glorification and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the thick of the fire. We have got seen this twenty-four hours that Supreme Being talks with man; yet he still lives.

25. `Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will devour us; if we hear the voice of the Godhead our Supreme Being anymore, then we shall die.

26. `For who is there of all flesh who have got heard the voice of the life Supreme Being speech production from the thick of the fire, as we have, and lived?

27. `You travel near and hear all that the Godhead our Supreme Being may say, and state us all that the Godhead our Supreme Being states to you, and we will hear and make it.'

The Children of State Of Israel chose to have got Moses talking with Supreme Being and state them His commandments rather than hearing His voice for themselves. Supreme Being heard their petition and abided by it. But He continued to desire an full race of royal priests who would seek and happen a personal human human human relationship with Him and function Him willingly and completely.

God sent His son, Jesus Of Nazareth to decease for us, to convey us back into relationship with Him and reconstruct the personal relationship with each individual He had originally planned.

Romans 8:16-17: " The Spirit Himself bears witnesser with our spirit that we are children of God, 17. and if children, then inheritors inheritors of Supreme Being and joint inheritors with Christ, if indeed we endure with Him, that we may also be glorified together."

When we are born again, we are Children of the most high God, we are joint inheritors with Jesus. We are no longer slaves to sinfulness and the world.

Romans 6:6: "knowing this, that our old adult male was crucified with Him, that the organic structure of sinfulness might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin."

We are no longer slaves to sin, it is clip we free ourselves of slave outlook and start to believe like our Heavenly Father thinks, to see as He sees, to see ourselves redeemed and righteous and no longer slaves to sin!

Not only are we Children of the most High God, we now take our topographic point as royal priests and the holy nation, the children of State Of Israel were called to be!

1 Simon Peter 2:9 "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His ain particular people, that you may proclaim the congratulations of Him who called you out of darkness into His fantastic light;"

It is clip to halt thought with the world's mentality, it is clip to halt seeing things the manner the human race does. Learn what Supreme Being believes and railroad train your head to believe like Him.

Romans 12:1-2 "1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the clemencies of God, that you show your organic structures a life sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your sensible service.

2. And make not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may turn out what is that good and acceptable and perfect volition of God."

We renew our heads by disbursement clip with God, studying His Word, meditating on it, getting it into our spirit and confessing it over our lives. We pass clip with Supreme Being in supplication taking our demands to Him , but also just worshiping Him and thanking Him for His Good and Mercy. Supreme Being have called us to be royalty, make up one's mind now to accept this function He have chosen for you, and walk in your heritage He have provided. Remember:

Romans 8:37: "Yet in all these things we are more than than vanquishers through Him who loved us!"

Do you cognize Jesus Of Nazareth as your Godhead and Savior? Bash you desire to be a joint inheritor with Christ? If so, I urge on you to pray the followers prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father, I come up to you in the name of Jesus. Your word says, "…and the 1 who come ups to Me I will by no agency project of characters out." (Jn.6:37),

So I cognize You won't cast me out, but You take me in, And I give thanks you for it. You said in your Word, "whoever names upon the name of the Godhead shall be saved.'' (Ro. 10:13).

I am calling on Your name, So I cognize You have got saved me now, You also said, "…that if you confess with your oral cavity the Godhead Jesus Of Nazareth and believe in your bosom that Supreme Being have raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the bosom 1 believes to righteousness, and with the oral cavity confession is made to salvation." (Ro.10:9,10).

I believe in my bosom that Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus is the Son of God. I believe He was raised from the dead for my justification. And I confess Him now as my Lord, Because Your Word says, "… with the bosom 1 believes to righteousness…" and I make believe with my heart, I have got now go the righteousness of Supreme Being in Christ. (2 Cor. 5:21),

And I am saved! Thank You, Lord! I can now truthfully say, I see myself as a born again kid of God!

Glory to God!!!! Amen.

Captial Hill Strikes Again

I see Washington Hill is obviously experiencing encephalon cramps! United States Congress have reached a via media on a measure that have put new criteria on the question methods for "combatants". Bash maintain in mind, we are talking about "enemy soldiers", not some "perp" sitting in your local jail. Enemy soldiers are covered by "The Geneve Convention" where they have humane treatment. Bashes this always work? Of course of study not, but I will stand up up for our state even amid the stupidity during the in progress warfare in the treatment of prisoners, we far outceed other states in their treatment of "combatants".

I cognize this "Bill" was inspired by the treatment of suspected terrorists. We necessitate to retrieve that terrorists are not soldiers, soldiers are willing to decease for their countries, their primary end however is not to die, whereas terrorists chief end is to die. Terrorist Groups such as as "Al qaeda" are cruel while not abiding by the "Geneva Convention". "Al qaeda's" version of humane treatment of soldiers worldwide dwells of beheadings, dragging our military members with cars, mutilations, leaving the dead organic structures of military pesonnel in the desert to pull flies.

We should not handle terrorists with regard or dignity. We should handle terrorists with the same beastly military unit they have got bestowed upon not only our military members but our nation. Capital Hill can not be serious in their logical thinking that we should not be unsmooth with our question methods in dealing with suspected terrorists, what planet make they dwell on? Bash they not retrieve 9/11/2001? The bombardment of the barracks in Beirut? The USS Cole? We as Americans are expected to sit down idly by and handle suspected terrorists with regard and self-respect but yet they behead, maim and brutally homicide our people?

Did you cognize that within the "Al Qaeda handbook" it plainly states that if captured and asked by anyone in authorization while incarcerated how they were treated they are instructed to state that they have got been tortured? Yes, this makes exist, the British actually have got got this written document and have now made it public.

This "Bill" approved by our United States United States Congress demoes weakness, it demoes we will bow down down to terrorists. How can our state not negociate with terrorists in mention to "American POW's", but yet will negociate a "Bill" such as as this? I have got news for Congress, you are stirring up a hornet's nest, let our military make their jobs, if person stairway over the line with their treatment of suspected terrorists, penalize them, but make not set military members lives on the line to pacify a grouping of "peace activists" and "anti-war protestors" as well as suspected terrorists.

Could You use a Good Cry? Join the club!

Time and clip again, I happen myself in the presence of an individual
who have come up to the end of their rope and demands healing. As they
cleave to that rope – wall hanging on for dear life - over one-half the time, by
the clip I close with prayer, crying are manifested, in work force and women,
as we swear Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth to reconstruct their health, their relationships, their

Time and frost again, Jesus rans into them where they're at.

But why the tears? Why so often? It haps so often that I began to
chew over this question. I seemed to especially "strike a H2O main" when I
said the words, "God isn't huffy at you" to the people I was speaking
with. That's when the river would flow.

"You figure and record my wanderings; set my crying into Your bottle--
are they not in Your book?" - Psalm 56:8

Even Jesus Of Nazareth cried. The shortest poetry in Bible is Toilet 11:35:
"Jesus wept."

THE blessing OF CRYING

In a human race that states us "Big male children don't cry" and that we shouldn't
"cry over spilled milk," we shouldn't be "a shout baby" and are instructed,
"There, there, don't cry," as if that volition actually assist matters, we are
subconsciously programmed to believe that crying is actually a bad

It's NOT! It's a great thing; a necessary, God-given mechanism for
deep interior healing to take place. Not crying over losings and deceases
makes a 'burden' in the organic structure that we are not consciously aware of. Jesus Of Nazareth desires us to release that load to Him. We go so
accustomed to carrying a thing, often one makes not recognize that it is
even being dragged along like an unseeable ball and chain.

As I understand it, the nervous system travels into emphasis manner when our
organic structure comprehends a threat. At that time, the procedure of crying is suspended. It is only when a individual starts to loosen up - thus releasing the load they
weren't even aware of - that crying actually occurs. Physiologically
speaking, what's referred to as the parasympathetic nervous system nervous system is
responsible for relaxation. Crying is a parasympathetic nervous system activity, too. So people who are stressed out make not cry. But they are not happy either. We've all heard the phrase, "I necessitate a good cry." Truer words were
never spoken!

When person shouts over a loss, it intends the nervous system is getting
"comfortable" or is reaching a phase of accepting the loss. This causes
a balance between the sympathetic (stress producing) and the
parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation producing) parts of the nervous system. The
crying that affects heartache almost ALWAYS ends. Joy really bashes come up up
in the morning…and after the mourning.

Psalm 126:4-6 of The Message Book sets it like this, "And now, God,
make it again - convey rainfalls to our drought-stricken unrecordeds So those who
planted their harvests in desperation will shout hoorays at the harvest, So those
who went off with heavy Black Maria will come topographic point laughing, with armloads
of blessing."

"WHEN sorrows LIKE sea billows ROLL..."

Horatio Spafford wrote "It is well with my soul," af­ter respective trau­matic
events took place in his life The first was the decease of his lone boy in 1871,
shortly followed by the great Chi­ca­go Fire which ru­ined him fi­nan­cial­ly
(he had been a weal­thy bus­i­ness­man). Then in 1873, he had planned to
go to Europe with his household on the S. S. Ville Du Havre, but sent the
household ahead while he was delayed on business. While cross­ing the
At­lan­tic, the ship sank rapidly after a hit with an­o­ther ship, and all
four of Spaf­ford's daugh­ters died. Spaf­ford's married woman Anna sur­vived and
sent him the now fa­mous tel­e­gram, "Saved alone." Shortly afterwards,
as Spaf­ford traveled to ran into his bereaved wife, he was inspired to compose
the anthem as his ship passed near where his daugh­ters had died (see
words below).

One morning, as I was headed to curate to my ain boy who was
struggling with drug addiction, as I was heading for the door, the Holy Place
Spirit led me to catch a smattering of photographs of him as a child. During
counseling, I asked him to talk to that small male kid - to the child in the
photographs- to inquire his forgiveness. Uncomfortably at first, he held the
images and stared, shifting in his chair. Finally, he said, "I'm so sorry. I didn't intend for your life to turn out this way…" Helium began to cry,
harder than any adult male I've ever seen cry.

He hasn't used drugs since, glorification to God.

Recently, I spoke with a pretty immature female parent of three, a kitchen worker. She was jovial, had a very pleasant disposition. But after I prayed, her
eyes were filled with tears. I asked what was incorrect and she replied,
"We're in a hole…everything's falling apart." That pretty smiling was a

In my ain life, through my ain trials and pain, I've cried a river. In the
darkest hr of my soul, alone with my Creator, ready to open up up a vein,
having wrestled with the Spirit of Suicide all night, He stopped me,
assuring me that joyousness would come up in the morning.

It did.

"Although crying may fill up your night, joyousness come ups with the morning."
- Psalm 30:5.

On another occasion, at 3AM, I felt compelled to anoint my ain caput
with oil. As soon as I returned to bed, I saw a achromatic and achromatic "film'
being played on the wall antonym the ft of my bed. It was one shot
after another of lonely, hurting, crying people. My bosom was breaking. I felt their pain. I couldn't halt crying. Even after blowing my nose,
washing my human face and returning to bed, the "movie' started again. So
did my tears.

I mention to that as the nighttime of my bosom surgery. Prior to that, Iodine was a
self-serving, self-centered, all-about-me, back-stabbing my manner to the
top of my industry kinda guy.

These days, after having gone through some eminent hells myself,
I rejoice in that I don't odor like smoke.

I rejoice that it is well with my soul.


When Jesus Of Nazareth stood in the synagogue, He opened up the Scriptures and
read about Himself from what was to go known as Isaiah 61. He read:
"The Spirit of the Autonomous Godhead is on me, because the Godhead have
anointed me to prophesy good news to the poor. He have sent me to bind
up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and release
from darkness for the prisoners…"

"Bind up the brokenhearted?" Friends, they're everywhere, trust me. Iodine
see them every day.

"Proclaim freedom for the captives?" Many are in slavery and they
don't even cognize it. In some cases, it won't be revealed until they cry.

"Release from darkness for the prisoners?" One day, as I was speaking
to a adult female on a staircase, during a 5-minute conversation, she mentioned
to me that SHE was the ground why all three of her matrimonies ended in
divorce. "I'm an alcoholic," she confessed, shyly. Within the adjacent 60
seconds, she was in tears. Since that day, she talks openly about her
religion and have started attending church. She was in darkness and, suddenly,
saw the prison house gate was unfastened just a crack, just for a moment. She made
a interruption for it, desperately seeking freedom.

I believe she's establish it.


Are you crying?

Do you need to?

When you advocate others, make THEY cry?

My wife, Barbara, states the narrative of a miss she was working with whose
sad visage betrayed her. She felt led to pray with the miss but missed
one chance after another. Finally, the work twenty-four hours was over and the
immature lady was nowhere to be seen. My married woman asked the Holy Place Spirit for
another chance, feeling certain that He had spoken to her.

The adjacent day, certain enough, the two were paired-up again. Barbara asked
forgiveness of the immature lady, saying that she knew Supreme Being wanted her to pray
with her the twenty-four hours before. The miss began to well-up with crying and told me
married woman that today was the day of remembrance of her son's death. Barbara prayed
while the lady cried. They embraced. Healing had taken place.

God, usage us all in that manner on a day-to-day basis. Amen!

Every blessing,

It is well with my soul

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea surges roll;
Whatever my lot, Thousand hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.


It is well, with my soul,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Shaytan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest self-assurance control,
That Jesus have regarded my incapacitated estate,
And hath cast His ain blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the blissfulness of this glorious thought! My sin, not in portion but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, congratulations the Lord, Type O my soul!

And Lord, hastiness the twenty-four hours when my religion shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump card shall resound, and the Godhead shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

My Future As A Great Prophet of God And Why I Am Distant From My Family

I have got not spoken to the members of my household for many years. Supreme Being have taken me away from my household so I can be raised up into the business business office of Prophet, Abraham was also asked to travel forth his household to go into the Promised Land, and as a descendant of Abraham myself, Supreme Being have asked me to go forth my household for the clip being, while He learns me His ways and raises me into the office of Prophet. I will be meeting my blood brother this hebdomad and I haven't seen him in four years. It's been a very hard life for me and I love my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and father and female parent very much. However events occurred in my life that were out of my control, I was forced out of my comfortableness zone when a drug trust I was involved with tested to acquire me murdered. And then I started having visions of devils and angels, and later on; Supreme Being the Father and Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus started appearing to me and speech production with me.

When I started seeing visions of devils I thought that I was suffering from hallucinations, because I didn't desire to confront the world that devils existed, as the conception challenged my position on reality. Whilst involved in witchcraft, once I left it I did have got a nervous dislocation owed to the terrific things I saw, I didn't desire to confront the world of what I saw, so I wanted to feign my head had played fast ones on me and that it was all a fairytale, but I couldn't feign this wasn't happening, I could not believe the prevarication I told myself and that this was all some sort of mental unwellness that caused me to hallucinate. To turn out to me that I wasn't hallucinating, Supreme Being Pb me to a very old book called: "Daemonolgie" written by King Jesse Jesse James of England himself, the same King who authorized the King James Bible. In the book it described how devils and the Satan himself would look in individual to enchantresses at rituals; the verbal description was almost indistinguishable to what I had experienced. So here I was faced with a adult male of high stature and credibleness who had documented himself what had gone on in England, and what this adult male of Supreme Being went up against when he ruled England as a righteous and Godly King.

The Book described in almost item what I had seen whilst involved in witchcraft. I had been called a mentally sick crackpot for describing what I had seen; now here was the King of England documenting the exact same thing in a book. The fact is, I am not mentally ill, I have got just seen things that 90% of the human race have been sheltered from. King Jesse James was not sheltered from all this, as he was a very informed person who knew exactly what was happening in the Negro spiritual realm, and how these liquor were manipulating society through their agents. King Jesse James had a enormous position into the Negro spiritual kingdom and had a stopping point human relationship with God, and he had the aggressiveness of a king of beasts as he constantly attacked the enemy with the powerfulness of God. Iodine experience a batch like King Jesse Jesse James of England, because just like him I have got got a strong desire to function Supreme Being and conflict the enemy, and he knew exactly what was happening in this human race and the Negro spiritual kingdom just like me, but sadly today the cognition that King James possessed is now considered lunacy and rubbish; and people like me who are aware of what's going on are considered lunatics.

My household also sees me a madman and doesn't understand who I am or what my missionary post on Earth is. I am a Prophet of Supreme Being and I have been visited by Supreme Being our Heavenly Father and Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus on a figure of occasions. The Father ordained me a oracle himself when He appeared to me as a ball of visible light hovering above a throne, sitting adjacent to him when he ordained me a Prophet was Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus on another throne. "And Jesus Of Nazareth said, I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right manus of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven."(Mark 14:62)

My household makes not believe I'm a Prophet but they believe I'm insane and delusional. Just as King Jesse James Hagiographa about the Negro spiritual kingdom look insane to today's society, so too are my positions considered insane in today's secular society and by my family. Being called insane by today's society only reenforces my personal identity as a Prophet of God; the Book states that Prophets and Negro spiritual work force are considered insane in a human race that is at hostility with God. "The years of penalty have got got come; the years of recompense have come. State Of Israel knows! The oracle is a fool, the Negro spiritual adult male is insane, because of the greatness of your wickedness and great enmity." (Hosea 9:7)

I am currently being raised up into the business office of Prophet by Supreme Being Himself. Soon I will be on the human race phase exalting Gods Holy Place name as Supreme Being utilizes me to make great marks and wonders. I will be doing marks and wonderments in the name of Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Christ, and even greater plant than Jesus did in the gospels, all the marks and wonderments will be done with the powerfulness of Jesus Jesus to glorify and exalt him. No adult male can make anything except through Jesus Of Nazareth Christ. People volition be lining up to be touched by me, as the powerfulness of Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Jesus will flux through me like electricity; people in wheelchairs, on crutches and those who are terminally sick will be miraculously healed as Supreme Being utilizes me to mend the battalions through the powerfulness of Jesus Christ.

I will be on the human race phase as I'm elevated by Supreme Being into the public oculus so I can share the truth about Supreme Being and his lone begotten Son, Jesus Christ. It will also give me a opportunity to deliver my household name, and do known to the human race that my household is a household who functions the Supreme Being of Abraham. I come up from the folk of Massa, as my last name is Massa and I am descended from Abraham. Considered an Italian name, the Massa folk actually came from the Center East and migrated to Italian Republic many old age ago. Supreme Being have told me my household history travels back to the clip of Abraham and I am a descendant of Ishmael whom is Abraham's son. Ishmael was the boy of Abraham and Hagar the Egyptian handmaiden.

Genesis 25:13-16

13 And these are the name calling of the boys of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the eldest of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and MASSA,

15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

16 These are the boys of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

God Himself told Abraham he would do our household name a royal 1 and bless us, as a King blesses his boy a Prince. I will lift to powerfulness with the powerfulness of God, and Supreme Being will present a state into my hands, and do me a great state with all marks and wonderments following.

The name "Massa" is a Hebrew word and it have a Prophetic meaning, it means: burden; prophecy, prognostication of doomsday and rough oracle. It have a very Prophetic significance and the word massa looks in the Book many modern times in the Hebrew version as a Hebrew word. Whenever a Prophet said, "the load of the word of the Lord" in the bible, the word "burden" in the Hebrew Book was written as "Massa". The word Massa is written many modern times in the Book if one is to read it in Hebrew. The name Massa is Hebrew and it have a profound biblical background as the name is of Abrahams seed, and Supreme Being Himself gave this household name a great promise in the Bible. Massa was the 7th boy of the kid of a promise, and seven is a particular figure to God.

Many scholars, Scribes and Pharisee's similar to drag Ishmaels name through the clay and state he doesn't intend anything to God. Well Godhead Supreme Being Himself made a promise to Abraham about Ishmael, "And as for Ishmael, I have got heard you. Behold, I have got blessed him, and will do him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will do him a great nation." (Genesis 17:20)

God also heard and answered Ishmael when he called out in hurt in the desert with his female parent Hagar. Supreme Being sent an angel to assist Ishmael and his female parent when they were in the desert, and the angel of Supreme Being promised he would do Ishmael a great nation.

Genesis 21:17-18

17 And Supreme Being heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of Supreme Being called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, "What garlics you, Hagar? Fear not, for Supreme Being have heard the voice of the chap where he is.

18 "Arise, lift up the chap and throw him with your hand, for I will do him a great nation."

My household name is a Godly name and I am descended from a seed that functions God. The Supreme Being of Abraham is the Supreme Being of Ishmael and the Supreme Being of Massa. He is the Supreme Being of Hagar the Handmaiden, He is The-God-Who-Sees, "Then she called the name of the Godhead who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, "Have Iodine also here seen Him who sees me?" Therefore the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; observe, it is between Kadesh and Bered. So Hagar tire Abram a son; and Abram named his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael." (Genesis 16:13-15)

When Supreme Being raises me to power, The Heavenly Father will be known as: The Supreme Being of Massa, who's begotten Son is Jesus Of Nazareth Christ; the Godhead that Massa serves. Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Jesus will be known as the Godhead and High Priest that Massa serves, as Jesus name is glorified and brought to glorification through Massa. The Lord three in one: The Father, The Son and the Holy Place Spirit will work through me, as Supreme Being utilizes me to make marks and wonderments to pull all people to His Son. Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth said, "No 1 can come up to Me unless the Father who sent Me pulls him; and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:44)

I will be raised to powerfulness as a retainer and Prophet of the Most High God, and as a adherent of Jesus Christ. My mere shadow will mend the ill as the powerfulness of Jesus Of Nazareth Of Nazareth Jesus and the Father will flux through me like electricity, I will make all signs, inquires and miraculous healings in the name of Jesus Jesus and with the authorization of the Father, as I exalt the Holy Place name of the Lord. I will demo the human race that the seed of Abraham functions the Father and cognizes the Father Supreme Being through Jesus Of Nazareth Christ. Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus was the Godhead whom Abraham served and worshipped, and through me, Abrahams seed will go on to function the Godhead of Lords. "Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No 1 come ups to the Father except through Me. "If you had known Me, you would have got got known My Father also; and from now on you cognize Him and have seen Him."(John 14:6-7)

Since being delivered from the darkness by Supreme Being and brought into the light, Supreme Being have revealed all this to me by sending his Son Jesus Of Nazareth to talk to me in individual about my future. It's not a normal future, but Supreme Being necessitates to demo to the human race that Abrahams seed functions the Godhead of Lords. My household and friends will certainly be shocked once they see all this come up to pass, as I have got a bad history of drugs, darkness and crime; but Supreme Being have honored Abraham and Hagar by reaching out to me and making me a new animal in Jesus and a retainer of the Most High God. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have got got passed away; behold, all things have go new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

As a transformed adult male and retainer of the Most High God, I am being prepared to carry through my fate on Earth as a chosen vas by Supreme Being to uncover His powerfulness and might, and to demo to the human race that Abraham served the same Supreme Being yesterday as the 1 I function today. "Jesus Jesus the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." (Hebrews 13:8). I will function the Godhead of my forefather Abraham and my female parent Hagar, as I will make great marks and wonderments and show Gods powerfulness to the world. The Godhead three in one: The Father, The Son and The Holy Place spirit, was the same Godhead and Supreme Being that delivered the Hebrews from Egypt, the same Supreme Being that brought down the walls of Jericho and parted the reddish sea, the same Supreme Being that answered Elijah's phone call and sent fire down from heaven, and the same Lord that resurrected Lazarus from the dead. He was the same Godhead through the Old and New Testament, He just kept telling more than of Himself through the whole Bible. In the Old Testament we see His power, strength, rage and chastisement, but in the New Testament we see His compassion, love and mercy. We were made in His image, but there is none like Him, for He is great and powerful and He is The-God-Who-Sees.

When Supreme Being exalts me, His Old Testament and New Testament personality will flux through me like electricity, the comprehensiveness of Supreme Being will flux through me as I exalt His Holy Place name throughout the states in the name of Jesus Of Nazareth Christ. Supreme Being volition utilize me as an instrument and plumb bob to: heal, teach, chastise, convict, love and convey clemency to the weak and suffering, and to convey judgement and rage to the wicked and corrupt.

I inquire that you maintain me in supplication so I can make God's will and deliver the seed of my family, and show to the human race that Abraham served the Godhead of Lords in the name of Jesus Of Nazareth Christ.

Christian T-Shirts, A Tool To Help You Share Your Faith With Others

Approaching a complete alien is generally a hard thing to do… especially if the subject is about God. Very few people in this human race are blessed enough to near others without looking like a complete "Jesus Freak" and eventually scaring people away. If you're interested in sharing your religion with others, but are a spot passive, Christian t-shirts could be the reply for you.

The fast one to sharing your religion without being overbearing, is to acquire people to come up to you… sol you don't have got to near them! One neat manner to pull attending to yourself, is to happen eye-catching and adroit Christian t-shirts that others will react to. As of late, there have got got been many retail merchants popping up in the marketplace stocking Christian t-shirts that mime the designings of popular slogans, Son and "secular" plans that the general populace are already familiar with.

These peculiar shirts take popular designings like the American Idol® logo, and have transformed it into the expression into: "Amazing Grace." Other popular illustrations include the Abercrombie & Fitch® designing with a rendering reading "Abreadcrumb & Fish," or the ever popular "Jesus Died For Pedro" from the popular film Napoleon I Dynamite. One of the most recent designings that is quickly growing in popularity is: Jesus Of Nazareth Died For my space In Heaven."

The neat thing about these shirts is their ability to catch the eye, and eventually, Pb the spectator to read a message about faith.

Finding that particular connexion with person is a hard thing to do. Wearing a Christian T-Shirt tin sometimes work out this job for you. Displaying your religion on a t-shirt with a adroit and witty designing can do people attack you to state you how much they "like your shirt." This open ups a room access of communication, and takes away the authoritarian pressure level of approaching a complete alien about God.

Rush to Judgement in Wrestlers Death

Today, the doctor and friend of Chris Bennoit the professional grappler was released from jailhouse and placed on house apprehension at his mother's home. Bash a speedy hunt on the internet, and you will happen many protagonists of Dr. Astin. There are some patients who state he treated them without insurance, he had great bedside manner, and he was an first-class physician. So how make we explicate the categorically positive statements by patients about this doctor to an apprehension of the physician, leading to jailhouse time, and a shutting of his practice?

Dr. Phil Astin is a victim of our evident demand to happen incrimination for that which we make not understand. We have got no replies as to why this grappler murdered his family, so we fault the physician, and friend of the wrestler. We have got done it before in our haste to happen solutions, happen answers, and explicate the unexplainable.

Recent memory conveys to mind Richard Jewell, the security military officer dragged through the mud, and intense probe because he "identified the Olympic bomb". Only later we learned it was Eric Rudolph who planted the bomb. For nearly a year, the focusing was on Richard Jewell, while we ignored other hints leading elsewhere.

Then we saw it again when Leslie Howard Stern was accused of "killing Anna Nicole Ian Smith with drugs". Again, the decease was unexplainable and we rushed to judgment, blaming the closest individual to her astatine the clip of death, Leslie Howard Stern. Later we learned the necropsy left many unreciprocated questions.

Then we watched it again with the Duke Lacross participants accused of rape, only to larn that the full narrative was made up by a mentally sick women, and exacerbated, by a prosecuting lawyer seeking to capitalise on the law-breaking to acquire reelected.

When we don't understand, we seek to make sense of the unexplainable and we make that by placing incrimination on somebody, anybody. Today we are blaming the doctor for prescribing drugs, however there is no indicant the doctor prescribed steroids to the grappler and we don't cognize what medicine was prescribed on the twenty-four hours of the attack.

Dr. Astin's business office is raided and his records confiscated and the news studies that he was arrested, for over prescribing medicine to other patients, unrelated to the wrestler. What in the human race is going on here?

I have got no thought of whether or not Dr. Astin prescribed an inappropriate medicine to the grappler Chris Bennoit, but Dr. Astin makes not necessitate to be arrested for doing what he is paid to do, be a doctor. He did not kill the grappler nor the grapplers family. He prescribed medicine to his patient's, that's what a physician is paid to do.

If we desire to put incrimination perhaps it should rest on the drug manufacturers, the gross sales representatives selling the drugs to the doctors. Perhaps we should see what the necropsy uncovers before we hotfoot to judgment, and larn to accept that we don't have got all of the answers. Sometimes we just don't cognize what happened. We don't know, what we don't know.

We are putting the cart in presence of the Equus caballus in this case. We necessitate to decelerate down, and larn the cause of decease before rushing to "explain, what we can't explain". It is a calamity to the American justness system that we continually fault person for that which we don't understand. Get off of the docs back, and allow the facts of the lawsuit blossom first. The facts of the lawsuit will be revealed soon enough. Wait for them before rushing to judgement.

Iowa Senators Upset About Propane Security Rules

An Associated Press article tells about how the Senators from Iowa realized that the new chemical facility security regulations were going to affect many farmers from their state. The provision that caught their attention is the Screening Threshold Quantity (STQ) of 7,500 lbs for Propane in the proposed Appendix A to 6 CFR part 27. It seems that lots of farmers use Propane for drying grain and have tanks that hold more than 7,500 lbs.

Of course, the Propane Industry initiated a significant letter writing campaign during the comment period that ended May 9th to call attention to this potential problem. While DHS has yet to release the final version of Appendix A, the procedures they published for completing the Top Screen portion of the online Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) continues to list the same STQ, so it seems likely that when the final version of Appendix A is published the STQ will still be 7,500 lbs.

What the regulations call for is that any facility with more than the STQ amount of any of the 300+ chemicals listed in the Appendix must complete the Top Screen portion of the CSAT. That information will then be used by DHS to determine if the facility is a high risk chemical facility. High risk chemical facilities will then be required to complete the other requirements of the new security regulations. Those not deemed to be a high risk can then essentially continue to ignore security concerns.

DHS has not published the details of how they will determine which facilities are high risk facilities. They decided that that information would give too much guidance to potential terrorists. DHS has said that they will look at more than just the amount of chemicals on-site; they will also look at the potential consequences of a successful attack. Thus a farmer with a tank out in the middle of an Iowa corn field is likely only to be a risk to his family, not a terrorist target, therefore not a high risk facility. A propane tank in the middle of town may be a terrorist target, thus a high risk facility. The only way that DHS can make the determination is for the Top Screen information to be completed.

The completion of the Top Screen will be a minor administrative burden. It should not be beyond the competency of any one capable of managing a decent sized farm. There is, however, a way to consolidate that administrative burden. The propane supply company could complete the Top Screen for their customers. All that it takes is for the customer to appoint the supplier as the Preparer for CSAT submissions during the registration process, and even that can be done by the supplier, only requiring a signature by the customer.

Things get a little more complicated if DHS determines that the propane tank makes the farmer (or whatever propane customer) a high risk facility, since a Security Vulnerability Assessment and a Site Security Plan will then be required. Even then, the supplier (who has a vested interest in the customer's continued use of propane) can assist with the remainder of the process, most of which will be cookie cutter security in any case.

A tank containing 7,500 pounds of propane is a potential bomb, easily detonated by even a poorly trained terrorist. If that tank is in a high-profile location, it would certainly be a good terrorist target. Potential terrorist targets must be secured, that was the central message that we took away from the 9/11 attacks. Rather than trying to exempt targets because of the political pull of their owners, we need to try to find reasonable methods of protecting these potential targets. Airline passengers put up with many indignities and inconveniences every time they get on an airplane; Iowa farmers can certainly learn to deal with these regulations.
