Obama, MLK, Lincoln, Gun Control

It just occurred to me that Obama's coronation will take place on the same day we celebrate Martin Luther King day.  Additionally, Obama's presidency has had Abraham Lincoln draped all around it, movies made about Lincoln recently, even a Lincoln car ad in which for the first time ever they put an Abe Lincoln figure in the ad.

So take Obama, MLK, Lincoln and think about the common thread.  What do they all have in common?  Now for a cherry on top wrap the gun control issue that is so fresh in our minds around what is discussed above and imagine with me what would happen if the bad thing were to occur on Obama's coronation day.  Why speculate along these lines?

Rev 13 And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. 4Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”

This is posted today because these thoughts have recently crossed my mind many times.
