There was a kind, loving giving billionaire name Job in the bible. The devil told GOD Job is only good because you are good to him. If you take away his wife, children and money he will leave you and curse you out. GOD took away everything Job had but he still trusted and loved GOD. Job’s 1st wife told him you are a fool; you should just curse GOD out and die.

If you feel like Job’s wife, follow her advice, and use these three words to curse GOD out. “FORGET YOU GOD.” There are 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and they all are up for re-election in 2020. You have one representing or misrepresenting you. What is his or her name? There are 100 U.S Senators, two for each state, representing or misrepresenting you. What are their names? Check to see if yours is up for re-election. There will be more bills discussed and passed by congress that will give us back some of the tax money we have paid. All of us are taxpayers even if we do not file income tax because everything you buy in the U.S. is taxed.

Ten years ago, our tax dollars were given to banks and other billionaires’ businesses to keep them from falling flat on their faces. This time it is time for us poor and middle class to be bailed out. We want our government, the richest in the world, to stop our rent, mortgage, loan, credit card, students’ loans, car, loan companies, payday loans and other payments for three months. This list does not include SEARS because you never pay them off (smile). We need to tell our Congresspersons what we want by three methods, “WRITE, E-MAIL, and TEXT.”

Finally, those of us who dare to call ourselves Christians must only use three words to help us not overeat during stay in place mandate, steady our blood sugar and blood pressure thereby placing ourselves in a decent state of equilibrium. “LORD HAVE MERCY.”
