So accurate.

Why is it that my voice always seems to be loudest when I am saying the dumbest things?

"Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD. "  Jer. 29:4-9


It grieves me, but I think this is about where we are as a national identity.  We have been, and should have been, expecting national judgment to be sent, and that  is what we are seeing.  The entity of America as we like to remember it is changing.  I would like to think that I will not see it in complete collapse in my lifetime (very Hezekiah-ish of me) but that may or may not happen.  In any case, the options are clear: live normal lives; raise normal families; and occupy until He comes or you go.  All this hand-wringing about the greatness of America being achieved again is for naught, I fear--a "dream...which ye cause[d] to be dreamed" if you please.
