Trust Not the Rattlesnakes

“To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David,
When he fled from Saul in the cave.
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me.
For my soul trusteth in thee.
Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge,
Until these calamities be overpast.”
Psalm 57:1.

It is a difficult matter to frame any issue so that the reader can understand what the author is trying to suggest here in this blog. My thoughts are presented in a concise, yet logical way. This requires a mind which can grasp burning issues of our time. Every age has some question which must be answered. The question for 2020 is – whether we should believe certain groups of people, ideology or experts.


This is written to illustrate that some entities are never to be believed.


Some facts are obvious. In my experience, a rattlesnake should never be thought of as a pet. A snake has no emotional mechanism which could be said to be a feeling for pity, love or care for another. No, these sentiments do not fit into a snake’s makeup. In fact, you should beware of any snake.

In my view, another group falls into the same category. This type of rattlesnake can be heard and seen as a parade of men and women act out.  They are mere actors, as they belt out their performances. The evidence is before our very eyes.


These horrible people are otherwise known as politicians. Some are elected, while others are placed into their positions of power and prestige.


Examples can be observed locally, statewide or in the Federal Government. These people are frauds. These people hold NOTHING as precious.


For years, the Republican Party stated they would do something about Obamacare. The Republicans held the majority in the Senate and House. So far, nothing of any significance happened. The Republicans are a fraud!


The latest fraud is Senator Lindsay Graham, when he said he would get to the bottom of the General Flynn and the Russian hoax situation. As of May 15, 2020, he issued a tweet that said he would not put Obama in a witness chair under oath.


He was the core of the two lies. There will be much talk and comments, but do you expect any indictments? There have been no changes so far. My prediction is there will be none. Hillary Clinton should be wearing an orange jumpsuit by now. She is not. Nor do I expect her to ever wear one.


It appears that the Republican Party is no different from the Democrat Party. The snakes are in both parties.


The fraud is they will tell people what pleases the people – yet, knowing that it will never come about. The people believe the lies.  The excuses come about like water over a dam or a waterfall. The snakes are among us. The politicians and bureaucrats are living among us. The Democratic Party is even worse. If that is possible.


As I examine our past what we thought was a hardship – really was a blessing that was misinterpreted one way when it was another. This happened to me as a young man.  I thought that it would have been wonderful to have had parents who were wealthy and moneyed people. This was a misconception on my part. My upbringing was in the Great Depression. My relatives have all been working class people. Paycheck to paycheck was the norm.


From the time I could work until now if I wanted something, work became necessary to obtain it. The blessing was that work to obtain things was necessary. In today’s environment, the wealthy look down upon the “Little people”. “Little people” is a phrase used by your author.

Here is what we do:

  • Fight the wars,
  • Die for the Republic,
  • Pay the taxes,
  • Put in jails,
  • Buy the cars,
  • Keep banks going,
  • Work the factories,
  • Boost the daily output of supplies,
  • Attend the public schools,
  • Worship God,
  • Believe in the hereafter,
  • Supports the banks,
  • Called stupid, ignorant,
  • Still believe in the goodness of people, and
  • Buy the food.


Then the rich tell us that Socialism is what we need. Blasphamy!


Listen to the remarks of the remarks of the rich and how we must be controlled. The fact is that those with wealth and money become evil and if they do not – their children are rotten.

I have known people of tremendous wealth because of where I have lived. It is the center is the largest inland oil and gas producer in the Continental United States. Some have millions of dollars. Several have been billionaires.


One family had four children. One was a drunk. Two were queers. One died of Aids. Can I prove this? Probably not! Another family had three children. One left home. One was hurt in an animal tragedy. One has some sexual issues. In these cases, the families were given wealth by God, because of the black gold underneath the ranch.  Their wealth proved to be a curse.


What is obvious is that money can be a detriment to the soul.



My daughter lives in a city about 350 miles from us. She has worked for many rich people. These people live in the separate rich areas. Many have  houses which are in excess of millions of dollars. Are these people happy?  I have a belief that they constantly have problems.

When you see the events surrounding the Kennedys, the Bushes, the Fords and the Wall Street crowds – it is a sad affair.

The issue is basically this wealth is a curse that infects the rich. Only God can give an answer to this question. Nothing is certain: wealth, money, and power do not produce happiness.


The United States had gone through, and still is, an event for which we have had no precedent. It is the shutting down of business and the requiring of its citizens to be in quarantined in their homes. This has the same attitude that the communists and socialists use in their country. The Democratic Party likes this because of the fear which it constantly produces.


The Dark Ones live for THE FEAR.


When people are fearful, the fact is things set in the saddle and ride men.

It seems as if a state in the United States has a Democratic governor – then freedom and liberty are on the chopping block. Here are the examples:

  • California,
  • Washington,
  • Oregon,
  • Illinois,
  • New York,
  • New Jersey,
  • Massachusetts, and
  • Michigan


The riots and protests are happening all because the governors only produce fear, and more fear. Do not trust the politicians. The game plan is always the same. Fear! Fear! Fear!  The governors of those states were unprepared to attack the Coronavirus. As usual, the Democratic Party pleased the economic coffers in special giveaway socialist programs.


The Bible has many verses about fear. In Matthew 8:25-26, Jesus gave us a remark about fear.

“The disciples went and woke him, saying, “LORD, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.”


It is emphasized again in Mark 4:40-41.

“And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”



In Hebrews 10:27, the writer spoke about Moses and fear.

“But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.”


In early Christianity, the political leaders tried to use fear to stop the spread of the Good News by fear. Here is what was done to the members of the First Church:

  • Burned them at the stake,
  • Turned wild animals at them.,
  • Ridiculed their beliefs, and
  • Many civil trials.


This type of action is based on fear whenever punishment is meted out by the politician. The Apostle Paul had fear used against him on many occasions. Beside physical attempts to destroy him, the one used on him was to isolate. They isolated Paul from entering the synagogue where he could preach the Good News.


This pattern of isolation of the past is NOW being played out before your very eyes. Do not go to the church service to worship Jehovah God. We are not called upon to be afraid of the idiots of a government. You should never forget who put to death our Lord. It was the politicians in the civil authority.

As a Christian, I am under no obligation to follow the rules of the evil politicians when they go against the Commandments of God. My deepest feelings go out to the Christians who live in the states set out a few paragraphs back as written before rattlesnakes and governmental people have some common traits.



There is no teaching in the Bible that it is evil or wrong to accumulate wealth and money. In fact, the issue becomes as to how was it gotten or the dependency upon it as a support. The idea is a matter of the thought process to have it.


Today, corporate managers no longer consider Patriotism – when they deal with the international flow of capital and goods across state lines.


This is why huge companies do not consider it to be improper to deal with China – the stealing and godless communist country. There is no shame lost to bind the corporation to this government. The love of country is no more.


This can be seen in the money driven attitude by Big Pharma when we do not know what the ingredients are in the medicine, we put in our mouths but, there are no on-site Americans who watch what goes into the pills. This cannot be proven by the author. There should be a means to determine where the makeup comes from.


Another problem in the trading with China is what they are selling to us for food. The chicken nuggets should be carefully examined. They agreed to buy beef if we bought chickens form them. Donald Trump from the very beginning of his campaign to be President started to seek another trade deal. We, the United States, are being ripped. He was and is, right.


Big businesses want to buy as cheaply as possible and still sell at a higher rate. The group who pays are we – little people.


Why do you think the trouble we have had with the Coronavirus came? It certainly was not by chance. Our business people acted foolishly. Proverbs 1:21-23, sets out how we are to act.

“She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.”


Proverbs 16:25-27, tells what should be done by businesses.

“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him. An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.“


A warning is given to men who are rich in Proverbs 18:11-12.

“The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.”


When men seek to become rich then evil is a by-product as set out in Proverbs 28:22.
“He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.“


The works of Solomon in Proverbs 22:22-23, are true today also.

“Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate: For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.”


Jesus Christ came to help the poor. As set out in Luke 4:18.

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”


As a Christian, I am to conduct myself in a worthy manner so that the “Little people” will be helped and not suppressed.


In the place of a free enterprise, the substitute should not be Socialism or Communism. These are wicked & insidious ‘isms that are destructive. The Democratic Party under Pelosi and Schumer are evil.



The United States Constitution was agreed upon by God-trained men. Yes, they were white. Yes, some held slaves. Yes, they were learned men. What was written and approved is timeless.


The politicians and the rich should not be allowed to destroy our value systems.



  1. Trust not the politicians,
  2. Trust not the rich,
  3. Stand up to evil,
  4. No faith in trade alone.

God Bless Our Republic.




“I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today;

I know that He is living whatever men may say;

I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,

And just the time I need Him, He’s always near.


He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.


In all the world around me I see His loving care,

And tho’ my heart grows weary I never will despair;

I know that He is leading thro’ all the stormy blast,

The day of His appearing will come at last.


He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.


Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing

Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!

The hope of all who seek Him, the help of all who find,

None other is so loving, so good and kind.


He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.”
