A Few Tricky Questions

Zen Buddhists like to ask themselves tricky questions like, “What is the sound of one hand clapping?” That’s a poser, all right.

As our country stumbles and bumbles its way into a new year, here are a few tricky questions for Americans.

1. If communism is as wonderful as American college professors and media mavens think it is, how come no one is building rafts to go to Cuba?

    These times and these leaders are a part of His judgment. As it was for the ancient peoples, so it is for us today. Is anybody listening- any with eyes to see and ears to hear? It doesn’t appear that there are many. There are those who see the problem, but few who know the solution.
