When King David of Israel lay on his deathbed waiting to sleep with his ancestors he charged his son Solomon with a to do list. He spoke of Jezrell..."Don't let the sun set on my body before you handle him!" Paraphrased though it may be King David charged Solomon with a hit list.
The enemies that had plagued King David during his reign must die! David knew this and knew that if left alone Solomon would not be able to get things done! Jezrell, G that he was when he heard that David had passed, went out to the alter, made his peace and killed himself! He knew that he would not be allowed to live under King Solomon. He, as Davids soldier knew that David would have instructed Solomon as to what to do. The Bible as well as history is replete with similar examples. Now history and the Bible also cautions what happens when you don't take care of it.
When Israel was told to wipe the Amonites off the face of the earth, King Amon was spared! He was captured and brought to the Israeli King! This was contrary to what God (IAM) had instructed them to do and the Nation of Israel paid for their disobedience.
I fear the Democrats are in a similar situation with a similar charge. Traitors must be dealt with!
Judas Joe Lieberman has betrayed the party not once but three times in recent memory.
1. Wasn't he the only democrat to vote for impeachment of William "Bill" Clinton? Correct me if I'm wrong but he did vote that way but he wasn't dealt with. He was given the vice presidential nod in the Gore campaign! What traitor do you know in history was given a leadership post in the army of the side he betrayed? Wait...American history is full of those.....Civil war not withstanding! Bad example but still.....
Then he voted right along with Bush and then eventually stomped for Mccain in the face of those he caucuses with. He should have been kicked out of the caucus! So what he sides with the Repubs! So what he wasn't loyal to you anyway! But noooooo! The Dems pussed out!
Still he should be bounced! I'm writing my congress rep how about you?
There does come a time for Revenge and retribution. There comes a time to balance the ledger, to clean the slate. To settle old scores! Think on it! King Solomon might have grieved and wished to himself that he didn't have to do it but it had to be done.
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
