Why post news numbers? Two reasons.
First, when a nation is under judgment, its people struggle. I've noted before in the introductory paragraph to my NATION UNDER JUDGMENT posts that when a nation is under judgment its food sources are destroyed, its animals and livestock are stricken with illnesses and there are die-offs, homes and public buildings are destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do, they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. It is expensive to rebuild, repair and replace.
Second, in ancient Egypt, the Hebrews struggled to make bricks for the Pharaoh's grandiose building projects. In America today, we are not asked to make bricks, but we are compelled to pay taxes and those taxes are used by President Obama to fund the projects he wants, and in some instances as part of what he wants to be remembered for, such as his Iran nuclear deal, his Paris climate treaty, his bringing thousands of Muslim refugees into this country, and for his social agenda, such as Planned Parenthood. And now our very tax agency, the IRS, is used to COMPEL people to pay for President Obama's 'signature' legacy, Obamacare, whether they want his Obamacare or not. In fact, people are FINED for not accepting it. And while every U.S. President has had his 'pet' projects, not only has President Obama been compared to more than one ancient Pharaoh, he is the President who has doubled our already enormous debt to fund his enormous ideologies.
