pres bush sent a signal to the world that we will not be held hostage to any foreighn oil exporter. something which nancy pelosi and harry reid have not done. the price of oil has fallen. so if i have amickey mantle card(which i wish i did) reid is saying its really not worth that much because it costs too much. so he wants to get all the card dealers and say u can't sell mickey mantle cards because they cost to much. what kind of thinking is that. i'll tell u what it is. it's not admitting u are wrong when u are wrong. its pride one of the seven deadliest sins! he doesn't want to look like an idiot. he worries about what people think of him. i'm glad i'm not him. if i was him we would be drillin.

I`m going to buy a cup of coffee, while you ladies and gentlemen figure out better ways to KILL each other!! I think I have said this on-line before...I think the whole world is crazy, except me and that is one of the first signs of mental illness...in other words, leave `em laughing!! Last night I was watching T.V. in the community room on the wide couch! A man who lives in the same building as me sat down on the other end of the couch for about 20 minutes. When he got up to go away, he said he was a little weak and dizzy like he might fall down. What happened was that he was getting slayed in the Spirit just by sitting next to me!! Do you think there isn`t going to be a world drought by September 8, 2008??
The Jews think I am Elijah?? Actually, I am like 8 people in 1! And I am obsorbing more and more power!! Are you listening Dr jose luis de jesus Miranda?? Bring it on you b*****d!!!! I AM CARTMI

I read, this morning, that Communist China is primed to be the earth`s number 1 superpower...Well, actually, I am the earth`s superpower...One of America`s President Roosevelt`s said:"Speak softly, but carry a big stick!!"...If Russia doesn`t stop being an agressive nation, they can kiss Moscow goodby!! I, also, am not happy with the U.S.A...If I got a job somewhere, They would probably give me a janitor job! And, I am now trained to be a computer geek!! I read on the discusion forum list about unemployment in the U.S.A. being at 5.5%!! The Bible says that on "That Day", The food would appear in the stores by Heaven!! As I have said before,"I am working on the notebook for, right now, for 2 hours!! So, I do have a job, starting up the Kingdom of God!! I cannot get a regular computer job, because I type with one finger and I have to learn speed typing!! I, also, do not have "vital signs" again!! I am going to post this message now. All God`s Love,
I AM CARMI

I would like to tell you how things happen when I will it to happen..In the middle east, when you enter someone`s home, they greet with this statement:" Your wish is my command"!! When I speak Heaven takes my wish as a "command"!! Also, I am censored to see if Heaven agrees with my wish!! Jesus said:" whatever 2 or 3 of you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you!!
I want to comment on 2 discussions I can see below this box I am writing in...Unemployment soars to 5.5%....another discussion says: "Home sales at a 10 year low"!! Both of those statements may be caused by a possible "Protestant parasoia"...There is another discussion I can see:" Consumer confidence Worst since 1992"!! If we didn`t have a war, how bad would it be?? I would like to comment on the 50 block area of Los Angeles County, where they say 80,000 mentally ill and drug addicts and alcoholics are gathered...I would like to give all of you some advice and I am giving advice to the Federal government...Let groups of 5 homeless people pool their incomes...whether it is "ssi" or whatever and negotiate with the county or Federal government to buy a house for groups of five to live in....If you take medicine, the government can have visiting nurses visit you and supervise you taking your medicine!! Again, I am talking with the Holy Spirit!! I have lived one year in a half-way house for 30 people, but this idea is much smaller...I want to stop typing now...God bless you, I AM CARMI
