WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES?

Subject: National Security Agency Programs: Many of these classified programs have reportedly already foiled many terrorist plots against America and Americans:
Dear Friends and Fellow Americans:
I spent some time this morning reading what I consider to be the filth and garbage on some of what I think of as ”Hate” sites written by some who claim to be patriotic American Conservative Right Wingers and it looks to me like many of them are in full attack mode against the government agencies charged with protecting us from terrorists and terrorism and cannot contain themselves from claiming that collection of data by such agencies is a blatant violation of Fourth Amendment Rights – - and all kinds of other brainless – - mindless – - irresponsible – - and stupid – - childish – - myth-informed claptrap they can come up with from what I consider to be the cesspools of their diminutive imaginations.
One of these – - and I am not about to dirty my own website by mentioning any names or adding any links – - went so far – - in what appears to me to be some kind of hateful raging rant against Liberals – - as to suggest that whenever anyone who is Liberal serves their country as a member of the Armed Forces of The United States all such service does for them is to make them – - “more traitorous.”
Well – - I am a veteran of two different branches of the American Armed Forces and I have seven years and three months of Honorable service and I do not feel like a traitor – - so I don’t know where some of these – - – “people” – - – get such ideas from unless it is simply a matter that they are so filled with rage and hate toward Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, The President of The United States and maybe even the American Government itself that they are helpless in the face of their angst and cannot do otherwise.
But that is beside the point I want to make here. It hurt me to read this kind of stuff from a Rightie site but I am getting more and more used to it as time goes by because I am of the opinion that if they could not spew hate they wouldn’t have anything to write about – - and the really amazing thing is that some of these intransigents seem to think they are “Christians” and have – - on more than one occasion – - even bragged about being “Christians.” I don’t remember Jesus Christ preaching a doctrine of hate so I don’t know where some of that is coming from – - do any of you?
Anyway to get back to where I wanted to start this post – - The head of the NSA has been reported to have said that the classified programs of that agency – - some of which have been so much in the news lately – - have done quite a bit of good work in keeping America safe and if you want to take a look at some more information about that report you can do it HERE.
Well – - it looks to me a lot like some of those on the radical right have more or less failed in their quest to make sure President Obama was a one-term president but they have – - according to the best information that I can find – - been more or less successful in obstructing our government to the point that it is reported in some media to be in the process of virtually shutting down because of some of them being unwilling to work across aisles or to compromise on anything – - so now I guess there is nothing left for a lot of them to do except go on these little seemingly endless investigative forays that I like to call “witch hunts” – - most of which seem to be going nowhere and many of which have already been shown to be a complete waste of time having produced nothing but noise and confusion.
When I remember that a lot of Righties claim to be motivated by Christian Values in all that they do in their roles as elected law makers the thing that comes to my mind most is something from The Holy Scriptures which screams out at me – - “God is not the author of confusion.” – - I also believe that God is not the author of strife either so the question remains unanswered for me – - “Where is some of this stuff coming from if not from the very pits of Perdition?”
