April 15, Tax Day - The day we are reminded that we are all slaves to the global banking elite

*** Post edited below ***

Please head over to Jessica's blog for some great info.

Campaign for Liberty also has interesting articles on this topic.

Or, go get another beer and watch TV while our country goes to hell and we all finance it.

My husband has been out since 10 pm last night working not just to provide for our family, but to also finance every lazy whore who lives on welfare and expects my husband to pay for her bastard children she has with all different exes. Or abort them. Or put them through the brainwashing government school system. Or pay for the doctor that they need all the time because they live a horrible and sick lifestyle that takes its toll on their body.

No wonder I am feeling extra sick today.


Edited to add:

I think I should clarify that my problem is not so much with how other people chose to live their lives, but that our government forces us to finance such lifestyles, which in turn only promotes them more.

I also realize that there are honest people who find themselves forced to accept such government assistance, after they have been bled and forced into that position by the same government in the first place. For those in honest need, I do not think it is wrong to accept such programs, as they will have paid for whatever they receive tenfold through taxes, indirect taxes, fees, and employers that pay lower wages because of all the costs associated with having employees. But I do not consider it an honest need if someone willfully put themselves in a bad position through their sinful choices.

It is wicked and wrong of the government to steal money from one family with certain values and morals and give it to someone else who lives a sinful, lascivious life financed by those same moral people they want to be nothing like.

As far as roads, schools, water, etc. - those are all covered in local taxes such as sales tax, property tax, tax on gas, etc. which everyone has to pay, poor people included, because they are added to everyday items we all consume.

Federal income tax pays for welfare and warfare, both of which I am entirely opposed to. In fact, it really only pays for the trillions of dollars in interest that we rack up each year as we finance these programs through loans which can and will never be paid back. The only ones getting rich are the global bankers who have been setting this up pretty much since the founding of our country, which is why the founding fathers were opposed to a central bank.

The Federal Reserve Bank is not federal, as it is a private institution, and it is not a reserve, because they do not back any of their bank notes (i.e. paper money) with real stored assets such as gold. They print money for cents per bill, regardless of whether it is a $1 or a $100 bill. They then "loan" this money to the government at face value. Since the Federal Reserve was started in 1913, the dollar has been devalued by more than 90%. Inflation would not exist if they did not keep printing money and adding it into circulation.

Inflation is, in a sense, another indirect taxation, in that we have to work more and longer because the government keeps adding play money to the economy to finance their programs and devaluing the already existing bills even further. Our federal income tax goes to pay the interest on this loaned, fictitious play money. Ron Paul was the only candidate who wanted to end the Fed. JFK wanted to do it before him, which is why he was assassinated.

As for "render unto Caesar" - we do not have a Caesar. Rome was an occupying force of the nation of Israel in Jesus' day, and they taxed the Israelites because they were under tribute, just as the Israelites in the past, for example under King David, had taxed foreign nations that they occupied. Jesus said:

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Notice, also, that in both passages the annual tax was one coin. That's a lot different than what we are faced with today. In the Bible time's economy, this equated to less than 0.5% of their annual income, and there were no other taxes involved.

We supposedly are living in a "free" country and pay HALF of our money to the government by the time we have paid all the hidden taxes and fees.

I am not at all "pro-Republican". I am for small, limited government that lines up with the Constitution. I think both President Bush Sr. and Jr. were horrible, horrible people. The Democrats and Republicans are puppets controlled by the same global elitists. They may say different things, but they act the same. Bush gave us 9/11, which led to the Department of Homeland Security and The Patriot Act. He gave us the Iraq "war" (No war has ever been declared by Congress since WWII, they only vote to approve spending on these conflicts. This in spite of the fact that the Constitution makes it clear that only Congress can declare war. The President (Commander in Chief) has no right to just send our troops wherever he wants to, but that has never stopped them yet).

Obama, Mr. Nobel Peace Prize, is continuing the warfare and unwarranted murder of people in the Middle East, in spite of promising otherwise on the campaign trail. He has not only not pulled out of Iraq, but is now also occupying Afghanistan and poised to start attacking Iran. Why? Because he thinks that they might be in a position to build a nuclear missile. Never mind that WE already have thousands of them, and no doubt many of those are pointed at Iran right now. Never mind that WE are occupying other countries and forcing them adopt our values, they don't. I guess being Muslim inherently makes them psychopaths who cannot be trusted to have a nuke, while we are the moral compass of the world and would never abuse this power. Why then are there stories of abuse by our troops in the news daily, such as this, this, or this? Mr. Obama is a mass-murderer who likes to kill babies, and people overseas, and wants to do so with our hard-earned money. He is no different from Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and countless other wicked men before him.

The only reason why America was once a great nation is because while the rest of the world has been down this road of self-destruction for longer, or was never free to begin with, we were one of the very few truly free nations that have ever existed in history. As all the others before us, we will be destroyed from the inside, from having eroded all morals and thus bringing upon ourselves a monstrous government that has to rule our every step and eventually become tyrannical. It's sad to watch this progression.


  1. Or maybe he's working to help my friend who's husband died and who has 4 children - 3 with special needs. Or else he's helping the Down's Syndrome young man who's in a group home since his parents died so that he has a place to live and it pays for the bus to get him to work where he assembles small parts. Or quite possibly he's helping another family who's husband was severely disabled at work and mom is working full time now to support the family but just cannot make ends meet so the food stamps they get help to put food in their bellies as dad is getting retrained in a new job.

    Finally, remember God's prescription for right thinking: Philipians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

  2. Why don't you pack up and head back to Germany?!?!?!? You came here by choice and you have the freedom to leave the same way you came.

  3. If it sucks so badly here, go back to whatever third world hell hole you came from.

  4. Thank you for posting your input as well. Seriously about "watching tv while our country goes to hell". That is the typical American. I am extra sick too. CHad worked till dark last night and will be all week and his body aches and he is exhausted. It is awful. I can not wait to read your comments today!!! Be sure to check mine later too. :)

  5. Hope you feel better. :(

    James 4:11-12

  6. Wow! Your a pastor's wife?! Would you speak like this if Jesus was a guest in your home? The people you speak of that are so despicable are the same people Jesus gave His life for. He loves these women just as much as you or I.

  7. EWWWW! Nasty mood today? Hormones raging? Mad at hubby? Mad at God? Just delight in being hateful? I have an Rx for you: Read 1 Cor. 13.

  8. Why do you spew so much hatred? Have you read any parts of the Bible that mention love? Not everyone who is on welfare or happens to be a single parent is automatically a whore. And the sad part is, when you post about your children, love truly shines through your posting

  9. Wonder how much your husband's border temper tantrum cost taxpayers? I know *I* don't want to pay for arrogant idiots to have childish tantrums within the judicial system.

    Who paid for the judges on the case? The mountains of paperwork? The buildings the hearings were in, along with all the personnel at those hearings and working behind the scenes?

    Oh, the enslaved taxpayers.

    I'd pay for a mother with children on welfare and in public school a thousand times over if I could somehow prevent arrogant idiots like your husband from using the legal system and border crossings as his playground.

  10. Pastor's wife? Wow! Where do they do that at?? My response is probably going to be longer than your actual post itself, but I am going to contain myself as best as I can. It might not be a good idea to put stuff like this on a blog considering your husband is the pastor of a church. Or else your husband's gonna be out of a job and will probably divorce you because of it and then YOU will be the one at home with all those kids with no one but the government to take care of you. And since your opposed to the "brainwashing government school system" maybe you can brainwash them with home schooling. Why don't you do a reading lesson and let them read this blog. And be sure to have a lesson on bigotry. No one is perfect, not saying they are, but this isn't the sort of thing that a "pastor's wife" needs to be posting. I'm sure you won't approve this comment and I don't really care. Just as long as you understand that your behavior isn't a good representation of a sister in Christ. You are suppose to be leading those "whores of "bastard children" to Christ, not condemn them. I am not judging you in any way. I just feel you may need to think and pray about things before you open it up to the world to read. It appears as if you have a lot of hatred and I will pray for you. It seems to me that instead of criticizing and judging those that have made mistakes in their life you may want to take a look in the mirror. Because I feel the ultimate sin isn't having babies out of wedlock, but bigotry itself and that's what you possess. Why don't you put a cherry on it to top it off?

  11. Just found your blog today. Gotta tell you, I'm having a hard time getting past that first post there. Pretty harsh for the wife of a pastor, no?

    blessed be!

  12. Do you honestly think God approves of the way you talk about people? Well, he doesn't. Try reading ALL of your Bible.

  13. I'm confused. You don't like these "bastard children" born out of wedlock, but you also don't want them to be aborted? It's kind of one or the other...

  14. Yeah!

    It's like that part in the Bible where Jesus says "For I was hungry and you decided I just wasn't worth helping because my mother had children with more than one man"

    Or that classic: "For I was sick and you decided not to heal me because I lived a lifestyle you decided was 'unhealthy' "

    And that time He said "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's.....unless Caesar is going to spend it on welfare bums. In that case, keep it."

    Wait a minute...I don't think that's right...

    And allow me to preemptively talk about 2 Thess 3:10 -

    First of all, I would expect that Jesus's own words would resonate more strongly than anything Paul had to say, and Jesus provides no qualifiers.

    Second of all, your complaint here is about supporting the "bastard children" of "lazy whores" - Do you really think Paul's passage applies to children?

    I understand you are busy, but I hope you take the time to reply. I'm very interested in your reasoning.


  15. Dear readers and those who like to comment,

    since the Bible uses both the words "whore" and "bastard", and it also says that every word of God is pure, and that Jesus IS the word, I think I am justified in using the same words as God.

    As for those who think I should not live here, may I remind you that I am a tax paying citizen, and there are many that were born here who feel just like I do. The founding fathers didn't like being taxed either, and they weren't born here. Germany is much worse than the US, because they have been following socialism for longer. America used to be the last free country, and now that our freedoms are fast slipping, this planet truly is turning into more of a global prison.


    it is the job of local churches to support those with a legitimate need. I am not against welfare, I am against ***forced*** welfare. Your example is very rare, and not typical.


    it is hardly our fault that the government violated my husband's rights, and incurred court fees. If a cop broke into your house today and beat you up, would you say you caused the expenses that a trial will bring, because you didn't just let him do however he pleased without raising objections at the time or later in court? They broke the law, which is why my husband was exonerated in court.


    mute point, my husband does not take a salary from church. If something were to happen to him, we have financial backup, and I would just start making money from home (I am a professional translator, but hardly take on any work these days).

    Creepy Mommy,

    easy come, easy go.


    there is another option: single parents could learn to take care of their own children. Nobody in this country is starving to death, even if the government stopped all welfare programs. There are so many privately funded organizations to help people. The real problem is that a single mother wants to live like someone who is married and has a husband to provide for her, but that is not right. Everyone should not live equal. Some work harder than others, some have higher morals, some pray for God to bless them. We don't need the government equalizing us all. Don't abort the baby, don't have one out of wedlock to begin with. And if you do, take responsibility yourself, and don't expect others to shoulder your sin burden.


    helping people is something God wants us to do of our own free will, cheerfully, not at the point of a gun and the threat of violence. Mind you, even with all of the taxes and fees we pay, we still give well over 10% of our gross income to charity, which I doubt is true of very few of the bleeding hearts commenting on here. They should put their money where their mouth is.

  16. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you in Christ Jesus. I Thes. 5:18

    You grumble and complain because your husband is working. Do you want to trade places with the unemployed?

    Next time you're out door knocking to "win souls," make sure you don't stop by a whore's house and don't trip over one of her bastard kids.

    Of course, all this response is exactly what you crave; in some sick way it feeds your ego. None of it reflects Christ and a regenerated mind.

    "Examine yourself."

  17. You might want to thank that "brainwashing government school system" for educating the doctors that take care of you and your family.

  18. Thank you for reminding me why I no longer consider myself a Christian.

  19. Taxes go for much much more than just welfare.

    Etc. Etc. Etc.

  20. Actually, the situations Mamame talks about are THE MOST COMMON reasons people are on assistance. Also most people who accept aid are on it for the short term. Someone has been laid off, someone became sick and could not work, etc...

    How do I know? Well, I have worked with people in need for half my life.

    Oh and? If you think Jesus backs your attitude? Well....I can't help that level of willful ignorance.

  21. If you're so bitter about paying taxes my suggestion is that you find another country you can do better in and MOVE there. I'd be willing to bet that about half of your readers would help you pack. You wouldn't even have to hire movers. :)

    Like I've said probably 20+ times before...about half of your posts I think are to incite your readers. I'm really not that bothered anymore. I just think people that live in glass houses shouldn't cast stones. You're not perfect, the "whore" who had "bastard" children aren't perfect....somehow I think she and YOU will have to answer for your wrongdoings when they meet their maker. Why can't you just leave it at that? I pray that your children don't grow up to be as hateful as you often come across...but then again...I won't hold my breath.

  22. You come off as one miserable person. I'm sure your life isn't that bad. I'm also sure that there are plenty of people out there who are in desperate straits and could really use your help, and no, they are not all "whores" and "bastard" children. Grow up.

    In the mean time, I'll pray for you. It's going to take nothing less than an act of God for you to change your terrible attitude towards your fellow human beings. P.S. You are no better than anyone else, Jesus loved us all the same, not just the "holier than thou" pastors and their families.


  23. I am a fundamental, born again Christian. I am washed in the blood and proud of it.

    However, I am disgusted at the amount of people who refuse to actually listen what Jesus says! Remember that he said to give up all of your worldly goods to follow him? Remember how he hung out with the poor and needy? Remember how he didn't pass up the people in the street who needed the most help?

    Obviously not. We are stewards of God's money. It is not ours. It is God's. I graciously accept a tax increase that means helping people survive. I graciously accept my taxes going to a program like welfare that helps so many people.

    People on welfare are not lazy slobs. Poverty is a vicious, vicious cycle and unless you've lived in the streets or in the getto then you have absolutely no room to talk and no room to pass judgment on the people who do live there. Imagine growing up with no support, drugs all around you, murder on ever street corner, and an educational system that is worse than the streets half the time. Imagine your mom being a single mother because her baby daddy is in jail or not in the picture. Imagine your mother working 3 jobs to support your family and never seeing her, therefore making it impossible for her to homeschool (apparently what you prefer), and forcing you to be thrust into the awful schools I mentioned.

    If you haven't been there then shut your mouth about it because you really just don't know.

    We will all be held accountable for our sins and our sinful nature. I am so thankful that I will be able to stand at the throne of judgment and say yes, I was gracious in any case when I could help someone with your money, God.

  24. And the "well we're better than them because we give to charity!" bit is useless since you have no idea who on here gives to charity and who does not :)

  25. SocialJusticeRocks!April 15, 2010 at 5:05 PM

    It's not as easy as "get a job." I am a college graduate with over five years work experience, and I can't find work right now, despite having stellar references. I can't imagine how much more difficult it must be for someone who struggled with academics or suffers a physical disability.

  26. Since you are so keen on pointing out the grammatical flaws of others, allow me to return the favor. It's "moot point", not "mute point", (your response to Tamra) unless of couse, your point can't speak. I know that many readers are calling you hateful and judgemental (you definitely are), but without your delusional rants, you would be incredibly boring. So, keep up the good work, I guess.

  27. Wow Zsuszanna,

    This is no way to minister. If I had never known another Christian and stumbled across this blog post, it certainly would not make me want to become a Christian. Fortunately, I have been blessed to have many kind, compassionate, generous-hearted Christian and I understand that you are the exception. Please consider how each blog post stands on its own, and be try to reflect Christ's love each time. This blog post makes it look as though you are full of hate, contempt and resentment for everyone who is not exactly like you. Is that how Jesus lived?


  28. It is not as simple as "take care of your kids." I am college graduate with 5+ years experience, and I can't land a job. There are people better educated and more experienced than myself who can't find work.

    I disagree that it's the responsibility only of churches to build safety nets. I believe that's the responsibility of us all.

  29. (continued from last comment_

    As for private charities helping out people, so the government shouldn't have to. I think they would totally crumble under the weight if they tried to do everything the government does now. My mother is the chair of the committee in her church that hands out charity to the community. Despite all their fund raising in the parish. they can only afford to give out two, three hundred dollars a month each to a handful of people each month and only for true emergencies.

    Also, did you ever think that your anger might be better directed at the super rich bankers and wall street guys who were just given billions upon billions of dollars last year (or is already two years ago?), for the "bailout". Those greedy jerks were the ones who put the economy into its tailspin by their grasping. The money that was just given to them without hardly a question far, far outweighs the amount that the government uses to pay for those "lazy whores" on welfare. People really have a warped idea of how much money is spent on welfare. Really, it's not that much, especially when compared to the amount that goes to the military, Big Ag farm subsidies and "corporate welfare" of various forms. And individuals on welfare don't really get that much. It doesn't even lift them out of poverty pretty much. Maybe just keeps them from being homeless.

    As for your defense of using the word "whores". True. It was used in the Bible, but I don't recall Jesus ever calling any woman that. Instead, he let one of those "whores" bathe his feet and become one of his closest disciples.

    And as for tax collectors. Well. He ate dinner with them. He even chose a tax collector to become one of his twelve apostles.

    I guess what I'm trying to say here is, why not try and let go of some of this unwarranted bitterness and anger towards the poor and try and have some compassion towards them instead. Recognize your privilege, which allows you to have a good man for a husband, to stay at home and homeschool your children and live what looks to be a pretty comfortable life to me.

  30. Er...Actually, there is a great deal of hunger in the US. Over 17 million people in this country live in households with very low food security and 49 million with some food insecurity. Maybe it's not like the pictures from Ethiopia but I could almost guarantee that there are people going hungry tonight in your own town, wherever you live.

    And I think it's very ingenuous to say things like they should just work harder to take care of their children, etc. Maybe if the world was a level playing field to start with. Maybe. To just say, "work harder" really ignores the many, many families where a single parent already works hard, at two, maybe three jobs. But none of them provide health care. Or lives in one of the places in the country right now where unemployment is so high that there effectively aren't any jobs to be had.

    Maybe their children need doctors only about as often as yours, but they can't afford to pay for regular doctor visits, so they wait until the child is truly sick and rely on the emergency room, which is more expensive, but they can't be turned away from. Or maybe their children have conditions like asthma because they can only afford to live in very polluted parts of the city and breathe in the filth that our cars and industry creates. Or maybe they're sick because they live in a "food desert" in the middle of the city and the only "grocery store" around for miles and miles is really a convenience store that stocks more chips and candy than fruits and vegetables.

    Maybe they're so busy working that the "brainwashing government school system" is the only choice they have for their children. Maybe they themselves only had that option and then couldn't afford to go on to college or training school and get a better job.

    Basically, you're ignoring all the very real societal and institutional reasons people remain in poverty. In short, your privilege is showing. Badly.

  31. It's ironic, I think. Your blog shows your whole personality--your faith, the supportive wife, the wonderful mom you are, the hard worker, and your honest political opinions.

    These negative commenters *only* show their ability to attack.

  32. I think you are depending way too much on God's Grace, because it isn't meant to be used as a ticket to live with such hatred and judgment in your heart. I will pray for you.

  33. I'm afraid the comment "we do more than they do" does not excuse you - that is a non sequitar.

    I also am afraid my Biblical ignorance is showing - could you show me the verse to which you are referring? Where God says the things you claim He does about individual charity? I would hate for something to think I was putting words in His mouth.

    It wasn't " I was hungry and you didn't feed me, but thats okay because really, 10% of your income? Ridiculous."

    Nor was it, "I was hungry, and you didn't feed me, but thats okay because I didn't actually mean the government should be doing it"

    I also don't see "I was hungry, but you didn't feed me and that's okay because no one else either."

    No qualifiers.

    Perhaps we are reading different editions of the Bible?


  34. Let's see. I give to my church when I can, we donate money to charitable institutions when the need arises, the women in my church sew for a homeless shelter that tries to help people find jobs and get on their feet. We collect and donate food to them also.
    I may have a bleeding heart, but at least I have one.

  35. So let me get this straight. You want to go back to walking everywhere or by horse and carriage? I'm sure you enjoy your car? How do you think you get all those errands run? Roads? True you don't use the public school system, but you do use roads right? you call the police right? What pays for that? I mean seems like you need to put YOUR money where your mouth is. Some things you say are hypocritical. It's all fine to want government out of our business. But in order to do that you are going to need to go in the middle of nowhere and live in a log cabin. You can't "hate the cow" and still drink the milk. You may not be on "food stamps" but I'm sure you enjoy the luxuries that are paid for by taxes.

    Also it's not that you used the words "whore" and "bastard" it's how you used them with such condemnation. Last I checked, only HE can judge. You were clearly judgmental in your stereotypical post about people on food stamps and I don't feel it was appropriate.

  36. John 13:34-35

    Perhaps you forgot this one.

    "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

    Yeah, I don't think v. 36 said, "except the bastards and whores." Pretty sure.

  37. I really think you and your husband are really loosing it. I thought he was a preacher of God's Word, not a spiteful little man spewing his rhetoric in the guise of doing God's will. I'm amazed by how many "stories" he has of sodomites and whores, makes me wonder if they are first hand accounts. Does he study the lives of gays and street walkers? By the way, your husband has a very sissy-boy , effeminate voice. When does he find time to work and provide for the family, time to read his Bible? And I must agree with Tia, you husband did through a sissy fit at the border. I cannot believe he would actually post that video for the world to see. I almost think it was scripted the way he goaded and coaxed the authorities. I guess its pretty entertaining for some people. How sad, I am praying for you and your husband's hearts. The level of hate in your husband preaching is increasing. Now I can see it spilling over to you.

  38. Paying taxes is our Christian duty. Paul made it very clear that we are to pay taxes:
    Romans 13:1
    Romans 13:2
    Romans 13:5-7

    And so did Jesus:
    Matthew 22:15-22

    I understand your frustration, but it is an American duty for getting all the benefits of being an American.

    God Bless,

  39. "Nobody in this country is starving to death"

    Your privilege clearly shows here. Please go out and meet your country before you assume that it is the (skewed) way that you think it is.

  40. Wow!....Just ugly, mean and hateful.

  41. Your whole arguement about how "whore" and "bastard" are in the Bible is rather misled, seeing as only God can pass judgement. So yes, you saying "whore" and "bastard" is wrong. Who are you to judge? "Let he who has no sin throw the first stone" The only person who can is GOD and JESUS, so I'm pretty sure you need to drop your stone.

    And another thing. Not everyone on welfare is a "whore with a bastard son" I was on government assistance for a time because I could not find a suitable job, made mistakes, got pregnant, was severely sick while I was pregnant, put my son up for adoption, and required serious help afterwards. If it hadn't been for the government assistance my "bastard son" may still be a "bastard son" and not with a loving and caring CHRISTIAN family with a mother and father who love him.

    Again, I think you are misled, and should re-read the Bible, maybe try the whole thing, and not pick and choice what you want to read.

  42. Dear Zsuzsanna,
    I honestly think your missing the point.

    These are your words:

    ...but to also finance every lazy whore who lives on welfare and expects my husband to pay for her bastard children she has with all different exes.

    This is your reasoning:

    ...since the Bible uses both the words "whore" and "bastard", and it also says that every word of God is pure, and that Jesus IS the word, I think I am justified in using the same words as God.

    I , in my 25 years of Bible Study do not ever recall God writing anything like you wrote in the above. Your using faulty reasoning to justify not taking personal responsibility for your hateful words. Where is your humility? Or do you truly think speaking the way you do is representative of God? The God I serve and the Jesus I accept as my Saviour would never publicly speak the way you do. I am not coming to your blog to bother you--in fact this will be last visit but, if you are a sister-in-Christ with me your words would reflect your love of Christ and those He died for. I don't approve of those womens lifestyles, I am not defending their choices. Yet, I know, if they see only a judgemental spirit they will be justified in hating Christians and all they represent. It is not our job to condemn them, that is God's. I hope your able to take this in the spirit it is given, which is not hate, malice or anything of the like. I will be praying for you.
