"Thank You, Pastor"
Say thank you to your Pastor,
October's thank you month, you know.
Tell him that you appreciate him,
And wanted him to know.
Thank him for the time he spends
On messages each week.
Thank him for the time he spends
With the sickly and the weak.
Thank him for the time he spends
Studying God's precious word.
And for the many prayers he prays
For those who haven't heard.
Thank him for the tears he sheds
For others, you and me.
And for those precious lonely hours
He spends upon his knees.
So thank God and your pastor
For being faithful, kind and true.
For through the work of your dear pastor,
God is daily shaping you.

Re: Vote to Save America!
No matter what Donald Trump said or did years ago, it will not affect our country. Four more years of Obama's policies, which Hillary said she will follow, will greatly damage America. We need change! Our national debt is now $19.6 trillion ($60,000 for every American). Under Obama it increased $9 trillion. According to Forbes, ignoring the problem will only quicken the rate at which we edge toward insolvency and an economic crisis the likes of which America has never seen. Hillary will increase taxes and spend, spend, spend.
We're going through the most anemic recession recovery since 1940. Our economy has grown an average of 2.1% and wages are flat. Unemployment rate is 5% but doesn't include 2.6 million workers who want to work but have quit looking.
Four American died in Benghazi because Hillary ignored repeated calls for more security. She later blamed it on a video when she knew better. SHE LIED.
Isis is a major problem. Obama should have destroyed them when their numbers were small, but he never believed they were a threat. Hillary will do no better by following Obamas' policies. Trump will be much tougher on National Security. He also vows to rebuild our military. The Iran deal, which Hillary supports, is another Obama blunder. In 10 years Iran will be free to build an atomic bomb. This is no comfort to our people.
Hillary deleted 32,000 emails AFTER she was subpoenaed. She said she never sent any classified information. SHE LIED. The FBI found 8 top secret, 36 secret, and said she was extremely careless. She said she submitted all she had. SHE LIED. Lately the FBI found another 14,800. During the FBI investigations, she answered 39 questions with "I don't recall". She should have been prosecuted but FBI director James Comey exonerated her. Interesting facts: Comey was a member of the Clinton Foundation Board. Comey accepted millions of dollars from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor. His brother works for the tax firm that does Clinton's taxes. Does this smell?
In a leaked wikileaks email, key Hillary allies called Catholics "backward" and were mulling ways to end "the middle age dictatorship of the Catholic church", and they also talked about ways to ignite a "catholic spring" (internal uprisings). Hillary doesn't deserve Catholic or Evangelical votes.
In another leaked email, Hillary said she is for open borders. She also wants to admit many more refugees. Syrian refugees have caused mayhem in Europe and could do the same here. Trump wants a moratorium on refugees until we are able to conduct thorough background checks because any of their records are almost impossible to find now.
Hillary keeps accusing Trump of not paying income tax for 18 years. The law allows losses to be deducted in future years. I don't know of anyone who pays more than they have to.
The next President will appoint two or more Justices. Hillary would appoint more Liberals. With their majority you would see many of our liberties disappear.
President Obama is out campaigning for Hillary on our tax dollars. It costs $181,757 per HOUR to fly "Air Force One".
The liberal biased media such as MSNBC, CNN and NBC report little or nothing that's negative about Hillary but spend a lot of time attacking Trump. Fox News (the No. 1 cable news network) reports much more fairly. Check it out. Before the debate, Hillary even got a question she was going to be asked from Donna Brazile of CNN.
A corrupt Hillary should never be President! Donald Trump will work for America. Hillary will take care of Hillary.
Senator Johnson puts Wisconsin First
This week in Northern Wisconsin, wolves killed Otto, a 12-year-old basset hound and family pet. Otto's owner put him out in the morning to go to the bathroom and instantly knew what had happened when he heard the wolf howl. Otto is just the latest in a long line of tragic losses of family pets and livestock to an out-of-control wolf population in Northern Wisconsin. In addition to tragic losses of pets and livestock, the northern deer herd has been decimated. Many who have hunted in northern Wisconsin for generations have simply given up.
But we have not given up. We are leading an effort to get Congress to act to remove the wolf from the Federal Endangered Species list. Just last month, we hosted the Great Lakes Wolf Summit. We had individuals from across the political spectrum attend and the consensus was we must continue the grassroots effort that has been building. Our most important ally in this fight is Senator Ron Johnson and he hasn't given up the fight either.
Senator Johnson is the lead Senate author of a bill that would allow Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Wyoming to once again manage their wolf populations. The federal government has failed residents of the Great Lakes region on this issue, but Senator Johnson is fighting for us. However, at the same time, Senator Johnson is in the fight of his short political life to hang onto his Senate seat. Career politician, Russ Feingold, has consistently had a small lead in the polls.
Let's be clear, Russ Feingold is out of touch on the wolf issue. He recently compared the wolf to migratory birds indicating that he will not support delisting. It has often been said that in late November, a virtual army is encamped in Wisconsin when over 600,000 deer hunters take to the woods. If this army would unite to hold Russ Feingold accountable, we would win. If this army would force Russ Feingold to answer tough questions about his view on wolves, we would win. But too often, this army is divided. Regardless of your politics, Senator Johnson is leading the way on this defining issue. There is only one candidate for Senate that we can trust to keep fighting for us and to return management of our wolf population to the states. We must come together to elect Ron Johnson.
To be frank, after the election, there is a real chance that Ron Johnson will be the last thing standing between our pets suffering the same fate as Otto, cattle from being slaughtered and the deer herd from being decimated by a perpetually unchecked wolf population.
It's time for the 600,000 hunters in this state to unite and stand with Ron Johnson.
