    NBC’s Brokaw Asks No Questions on Immigration, Abortion, Marriage or Iraq

    Wednesday, October 08, 2008
    By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief

    (CNSNews.com) - Neither Tom Brokaw of NBC News, who moderated Tuesday night’s presidential debate, nor any of the “townhall” audience members Brokaw pre-selected to ask questions of the two presidential candidates asked a single question about immigration, abortion, same-sex marriage or the war in Iraq.



    Deliberate or an oversight?

    I counted 4 off limit topics, you ask if it's deliberate or an oversight, I say 4 is too much coquencidence, I vote deliberate.

    It was one of the most boring debates I've ever witnessed. I could barely discern a difference between the two, although I know there are majore differences. Both of them pandered to the "please, government solve my problems" thinking that is so pervasive in our culture. Neither deserve to be president.

    Not a word about the most important moral issue of our day. And no, I am not talking about wolf hunting.

    For that you can thank the pro Obama media that is doing it's part to see Obama elected.

    They screened and culled the questions.

    Brokaw is a well established liberal member of the corrupt old media.

    I know the economy stinks right now worldwide, but is that any reason to ignore a major economic variable (illegal immigration), crime (also, an economic variable both ways), etc.? Of course not.

    Is there hope for the third debate?

    Read my lips:

    It is about the economy.

    Here is a post about God's Economy (also know as 'dispensation'):

    ---------------------------
    Dispensation in the NT, KJV1769 family of editions (bolding by Ed):

    1 Corinthians 9:17 (KJV1769):
    For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward:
    but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel
    is committed unto me.

    Ephesians 1:10 (KJV1769):
    That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might
    gather together in one all things in Christ, both
    which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

    Ephesians 3:2 (KJV1769):
    If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God
    which is given me to you-ward:

    Colossians 1:25 (KJV1769):
    Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation
    of God
    which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

    The Holy Spirit hasn't shown me a lot more than is here. I do know the Greek word being translated here as 'dispensation' is the Greek word from which we get 'economy'.

    I do know (IN SUMMARY OF THE BIBLE off the top of my head) that this is what the conomy of God is like:

    Bible Prophetic times:
    'hour' = the appropriate time
    'day' = the appropriate time
    or '1 day' = 1,000 years
    '½-week' = 3½-years
    '1 day' = 'week' = 7 years
    'month' = the appropriate time
    year = the appropriate time

    Other 'economy of God facts':

    the blind see
    the dead live
    the deaf hear
    the lame leap like deer
    the first is last
    the last is first
    Jesus Saves (totally!)
    God Rules!!

    Frequently the Bible discusses what is to be in either present tense (is done) or past tense (done already done).

    So a study of Greek tenses is generally frustrating. Us human type people can only do one day at a time. God can do everyday at a time - I think God may have invented all the days at the same time?
