Why Trump Won

       The 2016 United States Presidential race turned out to be one of the most zaniest elections ever in the history of this country. From the beginning the entire US nation along with the country's leaders, the media. citizens, and voters have been confronted with many controversies and challenges. These challenges involved the very words of the Constitution, fights between political groups, races, religions, different goals and ideas. One group shouts for climate change, claiming that preparing the country and its people for upcoming change of weather is crucial for the survival of our future as well as the future of our children and grandchildren. Others state that such claims are a sign of fear mongering and that fighting for a supposed occurrence within the distant future would be a waste of the America's time and money. One group shouts for the rights of the LGBT, claiming acts of hatred and discrimination, a need to be saved from bigots. Others demand respect for their religious rights claiming that their 2nd Amendment rights are being disregarded. Demands for these rights continued to clamor against each other. Each group demanding their rights are important, insisting to be heard and respected.
       The media did not help the situation at all. Much of the media was one sided, mostly liberal, and definitely pushing for Hilary Clinton. President elect Donald Trump had his own assistance from the media representatives like Fox News but the loudest and most heard was Liberal Media represented by a slew of television, print, and media giants and a host of smaller stations and news organizations. The entire Liberal media was obviously anti-Trump while continuously asking one another, government officials, the so-called experts, and their audience whether or not Donald Trump is fit to be president. Well, after asking that question for the millionth plus time it became very obvious to the US citizens' the media's opinion. It also became very apparent who the media wanted to win the election. And after haggling Trump so much for so-called affairs he may of had twenty plus years ago and male chauvinist comments he made before the year 2000. Yes what Trump said about grabbing women by the ..... is terribly wrong but not a reason to vote someone like Hilary Clinton, whom has made her share of deplorable comments and was geared towards creating plans that will eventually wreck the future of many people living in this country while stripping them of some of their precious freedom. Most people know that Hilary Clinton's husband, Bill Clinton, was himself engaged in several affairs while holding the office of President of the United States. Hilary, her own self, is rumored to have had affairs with women. Both have expressed behavior that is just as bad or even much worse. This is the candidate who wants to force gay marriage to be approved and carried in each of our states regardless of whether individual voters agree or not. She wants to force our churches and businesses to acknowledge gay marriage and hold such festivities within the confines of both our places of worship and our work regardless of our religion. This goes against our First Amendment Rights but Hilary like her boss President Barak Obama does not respect the First Amendment and were poised to elect future judges who were going to wreck the writings of the Amendment that protects the rights of Christians and other people's religion. They were ready to butcher the freedom of religion surpassing it with the uplifting of homosexuality and gay marriage. Christian people knew what this woman, Mrs Hilary Clinton was poised to strip away from them their rights so they showed up in large numbers in order to protect their freedom to worship God and obey His Word and command without facing harsh punishment through hefty taxes, fines, losing their businesses, their privacy in public restrooms, and whatever was next in the plan's of the Liberal Party.
       President elect Donald Trump won because current President Barak Obama failed in his promises to rejuvenate the job market in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Georgia, and Florida. He promised to bring jobs. He brought none. The citizens of these states have been suffering as they have witnessed business after business leave and take off for some lands overseas. President Obama made little effort to bring such businesses back or entice others from other parts of the world to come in and take their place. Instead he was traveling around the world and America, showing his face in various celebrations, smiling to the cameras, appearing to have so much fun, also expressing grief as he made camera appearance after camera appearance to answer for multiple shootings that oddly occurred very often during his presidency. He spoke in behalf of many gun control groups, blaming the Right to Bear Arms, America's Second and one of the country's most popular Amendment, for all of the random acts of gun violence and stranger versus strangers massacres occurring all over the country (ex. Orlando Nightclub). At the same time these anti - gun groups were avoiding more specific, detailed relating matters such as the spread of isolation within many individuals living within the country, the spread and wide popularity of drugs as a source to heal psychological wounds instead of  seeking comfort from decent people, individuals being highly influenced by violent television shows, music, and movies rather than healthy relationships, and a separation movement occurring throughout much of the country away from trying to live a life of good morals and character. Could it be that a constant preaching from the overly dominant Left Wing press and tv media raised a society to be less fearful of God and more concerned about each one's self, their own happiness, and maybe the happiness of a few surrounding them? Maybe such dominant character produces individuals who are more prone to commit violence against others?
       President elect Donald Trump promised change in this country. Millions of citizens living in America have been suffering. They have lost their jobs, they have changed from having a once highly lucrative career to one that barely places food on their table if at all. These people want change not billions of their tax dollars thrown towards studying the supposed climate change. The Liberal Media desires so much to control the world. They want to throw into the faces of Americans what they believe is supposed to be important, what they believe our leaders should invest crucial resources in, while the people who are in need simply sit, watch, and suffer. Barak Obama seemed too overly concerned with the media's opinion and at being politically correct. He did not show concern for the people in America who are looking toward paying their next month's bills. Hilary Clinton was much the same. She was an Obama student in the making, expressing the same traits but would have likely been much worse. She was seriously aimed at trashing America's first and second amendments with no regards at all about the people who our founding fathers wrote those amendments for. She was all out for the LGBT but at the same time showed little regard for followers of the C-H-R-I-S-T. She wanted to encourage transgenders to enter any restroom they want but expressed no interest in protecting the innocent people who would be left vulnerable for those who would use such an opportunity to take advantage of others. She wanted to push for supposed abortion rights but showed no concern for people who wanted to further protect the unborn. She was ready to strip people of their guns at the same time leaving them susceptible to violent groups and individuals who wish to harm them. She expressed little concern toward forming protection in this country against against America's enemies like Al Qaeda and ISIS. She was very likely headed towards forcing churches and all buildings in America to hold and support gay marriages regardless of what the Bible says. She was ruthless and that is why many Americans voted against her. They were themselves saying: "No not my president".

Target Transgender Policy Losing to Boycott

       Target stores, after months of standing solid behind their promotion of transgenders in opposite sex restrooms are not just feeling the pitch, they are sweating out big time stocks and money.  Droppings of sales and stocks have now reached almost 10 percent in the second-quarter earnings. The company stores' shares have fallen each day an average between 4 and 7 percent. Everyday sales have accomplished much less than the stores performed last year. Sales expectancy are down below 0 percent. Target Stores sales are not even expected to perform well during the Christmas season. The store is suffering big time but unless one studies the news or at least watches one or two news related programs per day, he or she would never know.
       The Minneapolis based discounter initially issued the statement it will allow customers and employees to use the restroom or a fitting that "corresponds to their gender identity" (D'Innocenzio, 2016). Franklin Graham then announced a boycott by Christians via the American Family Association against spending any money at Target stores until the company keeps their restrooms gender specific. Target pretty much ignored the boycott stating that they will stand behind transgenders and their rights to use whichever restrooms they believe that they should use. Since making that announcement Target stores has undergone a beating in company sales and profit. Christians as well as many secular people simply don't trust a grown man, who just happens to be wearing a skirt, hanging out in a women's restroom or changing room. After weeks of ignoring the initial drop in sales, and even after spending up to $20 million dollars building non gender specific restrooms in almost all of their stores, Target is still undergoing a sales beat down. Christians are still standing strongly behind their boycott. They are not shopping at this once very popular discount retailer.
       Obviously Target underestimated the power and influence of God in America. The media lied to the store as the Liberal press continues to lie to other United States businesses, government groups, and individuals the theology that whatever sex one chooses to be does not matter, America has your back. Liberal Media continues to bark that the majority of Americans support men pretending to be women dropping in on females' restrooms. It is not quite that simple. Just because Cher or the pretty woman in front of the tv camera cheers for transgenders to entertain themselves at whichever changing room does not mean that Joe Smith or Jennifer Harris living across the street is cheering as well. What is really ludicrous is that Joe Smith and Jennifer Harris has been repeating their dislike for this outright ignorance of personal privacy (North Carolina), but have been blatantly ignored by the media, government officials, and most importantly Target. They continue to shout "transgender rights" while rejecting every individuals' right to dress up and change in the retailer's restroom without having someone  from the opposite sex standing near them. Women have described a very possible experience as creepy, scary. Even for men the thought of an aunt Joy standing by the shower room pretending to be a guy while young boys or even grown men are undressing, does not sound endearing. Most people by now know about the eerie incident that took place in July when a transgender man pretending to be a woman slipped into a Target female's dressing room. "The man Shanna Smith, Sean Patrick Smith, legal name Sean Patrick Smith" (Oraka, 2016), was arrested and placed in jail by the police in the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office. When that incident of voyeurism occurred hardly a peep was heard from such big news reporters like ABC, NBC, or CNN. The were more interested in reporting about gay and transgenders rights. The rights of people who wanted to use the public restroom without being harassed or goggled at meant nothing to these news giants.
       Target tried to express concern for people who have a very good reason to feel threatened by building those single sex stalls. $20 million dollars slid down the drain as Christian people in America still do not trust the system. They still refuse to risk theirs', their spouse's, and especially their little one's lives and innocence exposing themselves and their loved ones' privacy to someone of the opposite sex just to make the transgender person feel good. Cher, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, or even Obama will not sway the minds of millions of parents and concerned adults.They simple don't want a man hanging around in the same restroom as their daughter.
       Target has already lost billions. How much more will they end up losing. This battle looks far from over. The company does not appear to be about to bend. They likely did not believe that they were going to end up suffering so much when they took the AFA challenge head on. They did not understand that with Christians this is not about being a bigot or discrimination. We simply just don't like God's commands to be disrespected. We don't want to be forced to accompany or join along other people's decided path to recklessness and immoral living. Let us watch and see what happens to this once thriving company. There may be a lot of wisdom to be learned from this company's current path, if America decides to learn.

Jesus Matters

       Black lives matter, all lives matter, blue lives matter, and we can be sure that there are likely several other similar phrases being yelled out back and forth from one group to another. More will surely come until Americans tire of this popular catch phrase. Black lives matter, the phrase that started this trend, began in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman whose famously known for murdering the defenseless young black teen Trayvon Martin after spotting him walking through his neighborhood. Trayvon Martin's tragic death resulted in marches and protests by both African Americans and White Americans throughout many urban neighborhoods scattered around the US. Then came further street demonstrations after the tragic deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo and Eric Garner in New York City. The BLM movement grew larger and stronger gathering more popularity and media mentions. One will often witness fights brewing between protesters and local policeman while the officers were trying to keep the peace. Politicians were forced to choose sides between the local policeman or the protesters. Liberal Media would often use comments by presidential candidates concerning the movement in order to influence voters to choose one candidate over the other. During the first Democratic debate in 2015 Bernie Sanders stated that "Black Lives Matter. Martin O'malley stated that "Black Lives Matter". Ben Carson, a black candidate from the Republican party, called the movement "silly". Hilary Clinton came up with "All Lives Matter". Looking at the situation while trying to think logically and without being influenced by the television one can easily agree that all lives matter but a lot of maturity and wisdom must be mixed in with this phrase. Of course blue lives matter. That is obvious. America cannot simply shoot down several policemen every time injustice is committed in this country. Such actions committed repeatedly will cause massive chaos. Policemen cannot continue to shoot down unarmed black men every time an officer gets upset or one suspects something bad  happened. Such foolishness has brought about this horrible mess in the first place. What about Jesus Matters? What if America believed that Jesus matters and preached this message as well as walked this message day in, day out with no hindrance from the media or so called equal rights groups? What if the ACLU instead of going after teachers who desire to bring their Bibles to schools or bosses who wish to openly pray in their offices went after old men who daily seek out young middle school, high school girls to join their harem, or sought after gangs who lure young boys out from school in order to help them make money out of selling dope out on the streets?
       Jesus matters and believing in Him will create much more progress in America than decisively favoring one group's cause over another. Unfortunately, many young black men, women, and white individuals have been fooled by the BLM movement into believing that they have their back, or that this movement is going to create any sort of gainful momentum for individuals representing any race or sex. Liberal Media has brainwashed many Americans into believing that Jesus Christ is just a character in the Bible meant to be preached within the walls of the church while kept out of the harsh life that often occurs within the everyday world. Jesus Matters and believing in Him while copying His ways would create much more progress and peace in America than every day screaming at people one's message of who does and does not matter. If only America would give Him a chance. If only Liberal Media will allow all Americans the Freedom to make their own choice.

Ezekiel 18:23
"Do I have any pleasure in the death of the wicked," declares the Lord GOD, "rather than that he should turn from his ways and live?
Ezekiel 18:32
"For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies," declares the Lord GOD. "Therefore, repent and live."

John 3:17
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.

Transgender Fails Target Stores

       We knew it was bound to occur and it has. And it was likely not the first incident just one that just so happened to be leaked out to the media. A transgender, a man pretending to be a women, has been nabbed and arrested by the police for video taping an eighteen year old woman in a Target dressing room. The man, Shauna Smith, legal name Sean Patrick Smith, has been arrested by the police in the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office, located in eastern Idaho, on one felony count of voyeurism. Target has failed its customers once again. They have allowed their female customers to be open targets for desperate perverts to gaze upon them for the simple sake of political correctness. And this is not enough. Target is not admitting to it's mistake. Not only is Target Stores defending itself but all of their pro gay allies are chirping up excuses, stating that this pervert does not represent all transgender people. Thinkprogress, Zack Ford stated that this incident has nothing to do with Target Stores stand for transgenders (Ford, 2016). Phooey, dude dressed as a woman ogling at a young woman in a store dressing room, while videotaping her has everything to do with Target Stores stand for transgenders. The common sense warning thousands of people gave to Target about their female shoppers being preyed upon by perverts, was sent loud and clear and in huge numbers. The American Family Association number of petitioners who have already signed to boycott Target has already reached way over 1,300,000. That is a lot of people. And Target has suffered 10 billion dollars in losses with likely more to come. One has to look at Target, the CEO of the store and ask: Is it worth it? Is being politically correct worth billions of dollars and parents losing faith in your ability to look after and care for their young daughters? Is transgender rights, gay rights worth sacrificing the innocence of our youth?
       It's a sad story because much of the population probably does not know that this arrest in Target has taken place since the story is not receiving much air time in television news. It is as if Liberal Media is more concerned about protecting the depiction and portrayal of transgenders than they are of protecting our wives, mothers, and daughters who need to use the store restroom or dressing room. The dressing room is a serious place of privacy for both sexes. This is not a place for a man to declare his rights to the world that he can be a woman if he desires. So what. Not in front of my daughter when she wants to change. What about her rights? What about my rights? Why is this man's fantasy to be a woman more important than keeping a voyeur from preying on a young lady? Common sense has been taking a beating in America and much of the Western World. Perverts want the right to be perverts and dimwitted folks are paving a way for them to satisfy their grotesque fantasies by bowing down to their excuses for behaving weird. No the individual was not born that way. He simply has a weakness that he has deceived others to allow him to coddle instead of fighting it like one does who is addicted to crack cocaine. You better fight it if not it only gets worse. Just like now America is still fighting the AIDS, HIV virus, gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc., One does not know how worse it can get if we allow this males taking over women's restroom's behavior take over society. Or even women invading men's restroom. What happens when a little boy witnesses a woman dressed up as a man who obviously looks like a woman try to take a whiz in the men's restroom. I mean that is just weird. Obviously pro - gay folks would read a remark like that and laugh at it but this is reality. This is the real world that one cannot escape. People are watching. A woman walking around inside a men's restroom cannot be simply shrugged at and life goes on. As Hilary Clinton says: America "it is time to move on". And she would really like for all of us to place blinders over our eyes and pretend that this man dressed up as a woman, taking videos of a young lady while she is changing in a woman's dressing room is not a big deal. But to millions of people it is. And these individuals are not going to just move on. There is no logical, intelligent reason why they should.

After Orlando

       Just before heading to bed that Sunday morning, June 12, I read headlines on the internet mentioning a horrific shooting occurring in a gay night club in Orlando. "Not again", I thought to myself. "America has gone nuts". Knowing that I had to serve in church several hours later, I decided to go to bed and catch up on the story later. I could not believe it. Forty nine people gunned down like animals another forty plus people injured. While browsing through the many stories and pictures of each of these individuals  I noticed that these were very handsome young men, college educated, and with very bright futures. There were some women who lost their lives, too. God bless their souls. But the majority of the victims were young men. Not just average young men but the type of men that most single young women would perform cartwheels and backflips in order to marry. One cannot help but wonder, why would this fellow want to date or engage in sex with men when he could likely have his pick between a group of attractive young women. Then one remembers,  hearing and reading commentaries and statements from previous young men who have been with women but for one personal, psychological reason or another was not satisfied. But that is another article.
      Since Columbine Liberal Americans and many other democrats have been screaming "GUN CONTROL GUN CONTROL" but to no prevail these mass shootings continue to occur. The shootings do not just occur but the nation, except for a few television, political debates, some flowers, and the typical "thoughts and prayers" statement from the average celebrity or organization, moves on behaving as if nothing happened. Since 911 the idea that by behaving tough and acting as if these crazy episodes don't bother us has created a pattern where people in front of the tv cameras continue to say and do the same things believing that these words and acts of toughness ("no fear") will somehow deter the next mass shooter or bomber from deploying his or her evil plans.
       America has a problem, big problem. These episodes of events seem to be traveling within a circle of chaos hidden behind NBA Finals, car racing, Summer Olympics, the presidential race, and typical Liberal media noise. These are the everyday events, one after the other, one always ready to take the place of the one about to end, that hide reality from the average American. This country has problems, big problems. Forty - nine individuals gunned down while partying in  a gay bar and Liberal media is trying to use the incident as an opportunity to raise LGBT rights by reducing Christian rights. Liberal media as well as the Democratic Party ridicules Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by always placing him on the spot, and blaming Christians for the shootout by making it appear as if by Christians accepting homosexuality as normal this shooting would have never happened. Such thinking is a far shot from reality and brings up the question, why not blame  Islam? Why not blame the Muslims since it was a Muslim individual who committed the crime and committed it in the name of Islam? Why not blame Islam since it is very possible that the gunner may have received the go ahead to commit these murders from the leaders within the Middle East, where Islam carries much power and authority over millions of people? Why not blame Islam since the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS?
       Does one sense fear? Are the LGBT afraid of Muslims and not afraid of Christians? Are the LGBT too afraid to send a message to Syria and Afghanistan, countries where the world is commonly aware of beheadings, imprisonment, and beatings of people even accused of being gay? Constantly reading the papers, watching news and discussions of the shootings occurring at the nightclub there is hardly any mention by the media of the fact that the shooter was a Muslim and committed the act under Islam. There is hardly any mention that the dude who was killing LGBT people under Islam was also himself believed to be a gay man by several of the people who knew him. He was seen often frequenting gay bars. He even asked a man out (Emery, 2016). Sounds gay to me. But the media hardly mentions this crucial fact of this heinous murderer. One has to read further into the story and browse beyond ABC, NBC, television, etc.. in order to locate this critical data. News is supposed to be truthful and honest. These stories are supposed to tell everybody what actually occurred and the likely reasons so that the audience can come up with effective conclusions. If not then the news shown is useless. The data is basically a propaganda story reported in a bias format in order to influence pliable people to vote for people and causes that the Liberal media want them to vote for. It is basically an atheist or agnostic church shown on television trying to influence people to gather within and support their own movement. Whatever type of movement it is, the citizens of America will find out as more and more atheist are elected to important posts and Christians freedoms to worship God, read and obey the Bible, attend church peacefully and raise their children in a way that is obedient to the Lord is attacked and taken to court daily. "The LGBT just want freedom to love whoever they choose?!?" Nope, don't believe that. Just ask the baker in Colorado who did not want to bake a cake for the gay wedding. That had nothing to do with love. That was a deliberate attack by atheists against someone who simply desired to obey God.
       Again America is in trouble. For various reasons citizens in this country continue to shoot up people while Liberal media, the American government continue to state their momentary pause for silence, then afterwards show the NBA basketball championships, baseball game, concert, or whatever is occurring at that time. An average of about six months runs by and another chaotic gun massacre occurs. These constant murders and callous expressions influence the soul and depth of the heart of American people. One cannot, at least an individual with a heart, ignore the lack of genuine repentance shown within the hearts of the American people. Nobody, at least when viewed through the media, does anything except shout against guns and the 2nd Amendment. The people on the Democratic party and their followers keep shouting against the Right To Bear Arms as if nullifying it is the magic key that will solve all of America's problem. They do not understand that this country's problems travel way beyond gun control. There is a spiritual darkness, evil, moving these individuals who ruthlessly murder people going back to Columbine, and going back even further if one was to count all of the other sinister massacres occurring in America.  There is a lot of hatred in this country. The atheists, ACLU, LGBT groups are attacking Christians and accusing them of hating but these groups have nothing to offer but more claims of "love". Even with all of these chants for "love" accusations of hatred against anybody who disagrees with the LGBT, and the movement to remove Christians' freedom, people are still being murdered savagely in this country. People are still being shot down. Gay people are being mowed down by other gay people. Liberal media wants to go after the everyday citizens' guns and if they are successful in taking their guns what comes next? Will the Liberal people be running after the Christians who don't wish to celebrate gay weddings and other LGBT ceremonies? Will the LGBT and similar groups be trying to force others to follow their religion? Will a Liberal army be created to force Christians and any other person who happens to disagree with their theology to follow the religion of Political Correctness. Is that possible? Wasn't it because of persecution that Christians ran away from places like England, Germany, the Soviet Union, China, Nigeria to settle into the United States? Wasn't it because of the sufferings that the North American Colonies experienced under the previous harsh ruling of Great Britain the reason why the 2nd Amendment was created?

Target Stores Stands with Transgender Bathrooms

       This is old news by now but still very interesting. In April 26, 2016, the popular Minneapolis-based discounter issued a statement stating that customers and employees can use the restroom or fitting room that "corresponds to their gender identity" (D' Innocenzio, 2016). Target, once known as a pro family oriented store, has now taken the side of the extremely Liberal left who praises any combination but the traditional family. The American Family Association, as expected, is leading a widely united stand against the now pro - transgender store by beginning a petition calling for a boycott of Target stores. The petition is online and is said to have over 1 million signed petitions. Bryan Kemper, a youth outreach director for Staying True, said that he put up a video on his Facebook page assessing Target's decision that has now accumulated more than 250,000 viewers. Bryan Kemper is mainly known for traveling around the United States and other parts of the world (mostly Western Europe and Australia) while giving his message against abortion. He is boycotting the retailer. His facebook page is filled with comments from individuals who disagree with Targets decision and view of their restroom policy. The often commented perspective that which restroom someone uses is nobody's business and that nobody cares is not only unproven but sounds ridiculous. Bryan Kemper posted an article on his website stating that a man claiming to be a transgender was arrested while filming in women's bathrooms (LaCapria, 2016) The man, Jason Pomare, was arrested in a Lancaster, PA Macy's store after he was seen in a women's bathroom. The security guards found the cross dressing man in a mall storage area. He entered the ladies bathroom wearing a bra and a dress. Matthew Forestel of O'Fallon, Missouri was arrested on April 23, 2015 after allegedly secretly filming women in a Target store (Lahue, 2016). He held his camera phone under the dressing room while the female shopper was trying on swim suits. Isn't it strange that while this ranting about gay, transgender, public bathroom rights is playing repeatedly over the news, television and radio, no mentioning of these actual events are ever spoken? One has to research the internet in order to find them. These are real occurrences and there are actually more. If such a character can take  pictures of women while dressed as a female what makes Target stores and Liberals think that such events cannot happen again? And why is it looked upon as hatred and bigotry if somebody has the common sense to bring up such likely occurrences? Who are we trying to protect, the innocence and privacy of both our young girls and older women or the self esteem of individuals who want to be something that they are simply not?
       What would happen if a Target store employee happened to intercept a cross dressing man staring at a female shopper while she is attempting to enter a toilet stall? Would the individual have the courage to intercept the peculiar individual and at least ask what he (she?) is doing or at least leave the restroom area and immediately tell a manager? And if the individual did would an employee care to do something? Would the brave person be referred to as a bigot? These questions may seem funny but reality states that these are likely occurrences that will come up. People will be offended. Lawsuits will be filed. News media will take sides. There are creepy people in this world. Some of them are cross dressers. Unfortunately the pro LGBT groups don't care. They are all about the transgender rights but not thinking about those who will likely have their own privacy rights abused, or be susceptible to possible rape crimes or even murder.
       Speaking of creepy, there is a long list of sexual predators who have taken advantage of the Liberals campaign against what they call discrimination against transgender folks. In 2011 a special needs teenager in Stamford, Connecticut was lured into a bathroom by three "transgendered" men and sexually assaulted (VNOBH). In 1999 a "transgendered" man named Patrick Hagan, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound martial arts enthusiast was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison after punching a female bar patron who questioned his presence in a Port Richey, Florida restroom. The woman lost five teeth and faced up to $60,000 in medical bills. In 2011 39-year-old Thomas Benson, who had prior sex offenses against 5 to 9 year old girls, was arrested when a good Samaritan chased him out of a Milwaukee, Oregon water park packed with children on a field trip. A chaperon chased and restrained Benson after he entered a women's locker room dressed in a bikini and started talking to children in the hot tub. In 2003 33-year-old Eichi Yamamoto was arrested and charged with 17 counts of illegally entering bathhouses and peeping while dressed as a woman in Matsuyama, Japan. "I wanted to see women naked," he told investigators. "Dressing up as a woman was a step to do that." In 2004 Robert Domasky, 48, was arrested after dressing up like a woman and attempting to enter a locker room at Greensburg Salem High School in Pennsylvania to photograph cheerleaders. He had a lengthy criminal history which included identity theft and stalking a woman. Police later found cheerleading uniforms, pompoms, and high school yearbooks in his apartment. In 2014 cross dresser Christopher Hambrook, 37, a repeat sexual offender was jailed indefinitely in Toronto for sexually assaulting several women he shared quarters with at women's shelters in 2012.
       The list goes on and on. The sad reality is that one will not hear a single one of these incidents cited by the news media. The news media will only mention transgenders challenging schools, private businesses, government buildings, etc., and their efforts to protect the privacy of their employees and customers while always making the transgender opposite sex wanna be always appear like the helpless victim whom we all must feel sorry for. These new rules and events are insane and someone will obviously seriously get hurt, if not already had if everyday people do not have the courage and concern for one another to stand up for decency and common sense.
       Going back to Target stores, don't allow Liberal media to fool you. The national retailer has taken a blow from its decision to back transgenders against Christians and common sense, and decency. The question is how hurtful is this blow and how long will it last. Again the American Family association has garnered over a million signatures agreeing to boycott the store. These signatures do not include the thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, or maybe even millions of people who have determined within their own private thoughts to withhold their dollars from entering into the store.
         Bob Unruh from WND.com reported that Target's stocks has plunged as the number of boycott signers has soared over the one million and twenty thousand mark (Unruh, 2016). Consumers may decide to dump their investments of Target. The company's stock has dropped down from $83.98 per share on April 19, to about $81.33 on April 28, to later $79.77. Target stores executives keep behaving as if this is just a minor incident that will soon cool down and later return to normal. News media continue to ignore this continuing story, pretending that no consequences exist for businesses and individuals who proudly side against Christians and Biblical morals. But who knows? Target may suffer some serious consequences from their harsh decisions against Christians and people in general who simply do not feel comfortable having someone from the opposite sex walking in on them while using the bathroom. Target may regret taking sides in this social argument. Liberal media makes it appear as if common sense automatically chooses the LGBT against Christian rights and the Church. Liberal politicians always make it appears as if following the commands from the Bible is backwards and unintelligent. As the war against God within America continues, onlookers may be witnessing the beginning of a great fall from another one of America's giants, perhaps.

Who's Spooky Electric?

       I recently heard of the death of a famous singer whom I was a huge fan of during my younger days. Prince's death was shocking and very sad to me. I felt  like crying because I remembered a time during my pre and early teens when I used to stare wonderingly at the fascinating music videos, admiring all those pretty women wearing their sexy costumes. I listened intently to the videos telling their fascinating stories, watching the singer gyrate and dance with his female companions. The dances and acts on stage mesmerized me. Then I would buy the tapes and listen intently to the songs, trying to understand what the dude was saying. Weird words would come out of his mouth, like 'Spooky Electric', 'lovesexy', "Anna Stesia" and I would be wondering to myself, "what in the world is this crazy man talking about". I believed that he must have been high on drugs while writing the lyrics for these songs. I mean much of what he was saying, especially in the Batman album, made no sense. But I loved the music. I loved the beats and the instrumental playing behind the lyrics. And the lyrics that I did understand, even though some of it was strange, they still appealed to me. I often imagined that Spooky Electric was some kind of spirit conjured by Prince, possibly even an evil spirit. I was a Christian then, a young one. I should have known better. I should have known to shut that music off and throw the cassette tapes away. I should have known to ignore the music videos on MTV. But the songs, the beautiful female musicians, and the brassy instrument playing appealed to me. It was breathtaking. I remember watching music videos like "Raspberry Beret" and "U Got The Look" and not being able to take my eyes of the characters. The videos were captivating. I would not tell my friends or siblings but I often wanted to be inside the television with those characters, dancing with the singers and dancers. The cartoon female in the Raspberry Beret video, felt emotionally appealing. Sometimes I would imagine having a girlfriend just like her.
       Looking back at myself at that time, now as an adult, I would think, "man I must have been very weird". But while reading commentaries from other fans, after his recent death, I learned that it was not just me. There were other people who were captivated by this singer. I saw many scenes of grown men and women actually crying over him. And now I am beginning to understand what this dude named Prince actually meant to me. And I am beginning to understand who is Spooky Electric. Prince was a shy, awkward, strange man in person, during interviews but on stage and in the interviews he was very flashy, wild, and charming with the ladies. He in a way spoke to people who felt lonely or in their own way awkward. He made them feel like they can be cool. His strange videos and lyrics acted as steps and ladders for the imaginative, those who often day dreamed and fantasized. His cool drawings and perplexing signs drew people who were very curious and sent them along on a lengthy journey to find and discover the truths and meanings behind his imaginative stories he was telling. Yes he was mesmerizing, but yes I am glad that I long ago hopped of that journey.
       I used to be hooked into MTV Rock and later Hip Hop and Rap music. I watched every Hip Hop video again and again and again. And when I became an adult and made more money, I bought continuous arm loads of tapes. I remember buying ten to fifteen tapes on line around two to three times in a couple months span. Every week I would buy the Sunday paper and purchase the new hit records on sale that week, purchasing two to five a week. I accumulated over a hundred CDs and tapes. Some of them were personal tapes created and copied from past friends of mine who knew I loved music and made those tapes especially for me. I listened to songs that reminded me of friends whom I most likely will never see again, just to remember them. I listened to songs that I depended on to help me fall asleep at night. I had songs to listen to in order to cheer me up whenever I felt depressed. But deep inside I knew that I am a Christian and I should not be listening to those kind of music, but I could not stop. Then one day after having deep talks with other Christians and my wife during Bible Meetings I got convicted. The music was not good for me nor did it elevate Jesus Christ for the True Lord and Savior that He is. For several years I stopped listening to the music but I still kept them stored in their boxes and containers. Some of those tapes gave me good memories of people and fun during my childhood. Just looking at the artistry and writings by people whom meant a lot to me made me turn my eyes away at the thought of departing from them. Then one day something happened to me. I walked over to the boxes and containers of tapes and simply picked them up and placed them outside in front of my porch for the garbage collectors to come by and pick up the next morning. The next day they were gone. I long ago began listening to christian music and christian radio and discovered that Christian Music sounded just as good, in fact even better. While listening to Christian songs I felt no guilt in what I was listening to, neither did I have to feel any concern about someone cussing on the tape, or making some suggestive comments about sex, or inviting some strange demonic spirit into my life. Nor did I have to worry about having to explain to my children why these tapes were in the house after they became old enough to look and wonder.
       Now back to Spooky Electric. While researching the name I discovered that Spooky Electric is some kind of neon devil (Anders, 2012). He cuts like a knife and tries to get in you and gives you a .57 magnum - and then you have to call People Magazine and Rolling Stone" (Anders, 2012). So, I guess I was right. I knew that it must be some kind of spirit and I knew that it was likely a demonic spirit I was just too in love with the music to admit it to myself and just find another companion to soothe my spirit, like Jesus. I still like Prince and I am very sad to see him die so young at the age of 57, but I have known of the early, tragic deaths of so many other great artists, like Aaliyah, Notorious BIG, Eazy E, Elvis, John Lennon, the H-Town lead singer, the lead singer from the group Blaque who died after getting hit by a car, and even one of the dancers for rapper Heavy D. So many of them have died it is real sad. It is just obvious something is wrong with this music, rock, hip hop, rap, it does not matter. Something is wrong with Spooky Electric. Again I still like Prince and I wish that he would have become a Christian. I know that he dabbled into being a Jehovah Witness but unless Prince Rogers Nelson accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and asked Him for the forgiveness for his sins Prince was not a Christian, meaning he was not saved, and that is sad.
