Romania and Communism

Wikipedia info on how the poor nation of Romania succumbed to communism/socialism and what happened to landowners and business owners, and how armed resistance was needed to get freedom back.

 

THis is for all of you that think the second amendment is just for hunting rights and state militias.

Re: Romania and Communism

That Canuck is a funny clown, saying `Romania wouldn`t be so poor if they gave up Christianity and they were only under communism for 20 years, for 50 years they were on their own`...Yeah, like Ceausesu was so much better...he was a communist.

 

Here`s the irony, the Godless Soviet Union folded, the God fearing United States is the last super power.  However as we move away from God, we lose power and prominence in the world at the same proportion. 

 

But this is exactly what 0bama and crew want, no country in the world to have dominence....but! We are supposed to be the good guys!!!  When America does fall, that will be the end for the rest of the world, we are the last bastion of freedom.

If you believe that, it is probably you too move away from the god thing to get the facts.  Keep believing it and your destiny is sealed and I don't mean heaven either.

Just for you Gouchy, God leaves proof of His existance all of the time.

 

snip-

Emergency workers and community members in eastern Missouri are not sure what to make of a mystery priest who showed up at a critical accident scene Sunday morning and whose prayer seemed to change life-threatening events for the positive.

Even odder, the black-garbed priest does not appear in any of the nearly 70 photos of the scene of the accident in which a 19-year-old girl almost died. No one knows the priest and he vanished without a word, said Raymond Reed, fire chief of New London, Mo.

"I think it's a miracle," Reed said. "I would say whether it was an angel that was sent to us in the form of a priest or a priest that became our angel, I don't know. Either way, I'm good with it."

Carla Churchill Lentz, mother of the teen who was critically injured, said emergency workers have told her there is no way her daughter should have lived inside such a mangled car. Of the priest, she said, "I do believe he certainly could have been an angel dressed in priest's attire because the Bible tells us there are angels among us."

The scene unfolded Sunday morning. Katie Lentz, a sophomore at Tulane University, was driving from her parents' home in Quincy, Ill., to Jefferson City, Mo., where she has a summer internship and  planned to attend church with friends. The Mercedes she was driving collided with another vehicle on a highway near Center, Mo.  The accident crushed Lentz's vehicle into a ball of sheet metal that lay on the driver's side, Reed said.

 
 

Reed's team and emergency workers from several other jurisdictions tried for at least 45 minutes to remove the twisted metal from around Lentz. Various pieces of equipment broke and the team was running out of choices. A helicopter waited to carry Lentz to the nearest trauma center. Though Lentz appeared calm, talking about her church and her studies toward a dentistry degree, her vital signs were beginning to fail, Reed said.

"I was pulled off to the side by one of the members of the" helicopter evacuation team, Reed said. "He expressed to me that we were out of time. Her condition looked grim for her coming out of that vehicle alive. She was facing major problems."

At that point, Reed's team agreed to take the life-threatening chance of sitting the vehicle upright so that Lentz could be removed from it. This is dangerous because a sudden change in pressure to the body can be critical, he said.

That's when Lentz asked if someone would pray with her and a voice said, "I will."

The silver-haired priest in his 50s or 60s in black pants, black shirt and black collar with visible white insert stepped forward from nowhere. It struck Reed as odd because the street was blocked off 2 miles from the scene and no one from the nearby communities recognized him.

"We're all local people from four different towns," Reed said. "We've only got one Catholic church out of three towns and it wasn't their priest."

Reed and the other emergency workers were on their knees. The priest of about medium build, maybe 6-feet-tall, stood above them.

"This priest approached Katie and began to pray openly with her," Reed said. "He had a bottle of anointing oil with him and he used that."

Another firefighter who had been watching said it appeared as if the priest also sprinkled Reed and two other emergency workers nearby with oil.

Everything happened quickly after that. Twenty emergency workers pulled together and sat the car upright, Churchill Lentz said. Katie Lentz's vital signs improved and a rescue team from a neighboring community suddenly appeared with fresh equipment and tools. Lentz was removed and rushed to the hospital.

With Lentz gone, the rescue team prepared to clean up, Reed said.

"We all go back to thank this priest and he's gone," he said.

Initially, they assumed he had to get to his home church to lead Sunday services. But then they looked at their photos of the scene.

"I have 69 photographs that were taken from minutes after that accident happened — bystanders, the extrication, our final cleanup — and he's not in them," Reed said.  "All we want to do is thank him."

Re: Romania and Communism

To the gun nut who thinks we cannot buy guns. Clearly you do not read much. I can buy a gun anytime after I produce my licence. I do not know why you think we can't access weapons. That is BS so go and read some more. To 3020 that story has nothing to do with miracles or god. Stop being so stupid. There is no god heaven or hell and never has been. In your tiny brain it might exist but outside that. I don't suppose you would entertain the rescuers arriving with more gear which resulted in her survival? Miracle my ass. Wake up to yourself you religious fool.

Re: Romania and Communism

  Ah Goughy,   Freedom was established here in 1776.  It was America who showed the world how to get rid of Kings and tyrants and govern ourselves, true we lost it to the highest bidders, foreign powers.   When did you subjects/prisoners get rid of them?  But I suppose with you educational system you can't answer that correctly.

The story has everything to do with miracles and God. You can choose to believe as you wish.

The irony of your statement is how your citizens welcome the royal family when they visit. This country has the queen and in my life has never interfered with the running of it. I am not a royalist and never have been and would prefer a republic. If we decide to do that we will not needs guns to do like your dads army. But with the educational system over there and lippy being its shining light. I would be surprised if you could understand that. Aren't you pleased you asked. But as for governing yourselves, you have to be joking.

Re: Romania and Communism

Gough you point out a very obvious thing with the USA's love of the British crown.

 

John also missed history lessons when they talked about Greece and democracy.
