"He that dwelleth in the secret place of THE MOST HIGH [GOD] shall abide under the shadow of THE ALMIGHTY. I will say of THE LORD, 'HE is my refuge and my fortress: my GOD, in HIM will I trust. Surely, HE shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence. HE shall cover thee with HIS feathers, and under HIS wings shalt thou trust. Surely HIS truth shall be thy shield and thy buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night , nor for the arrow that flieth by day. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made THE LORD which is my refuge, even THE MOST HIGH, thy habitation, there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For HE shall give HIS Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and the adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high because he hath known MY name. He shall call upon ME, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honour him. With long life, will I satisfy him, and shew him MY salvation." Psalms 91, The King James Holy Bible.
I love these Scriptures. I have considered them my so-called Insurance plan for twenty years now, and GOD is able to protect and defend me. This past year I suffered a lot because of misguided attempts by the governments and those entrusted with protecting the public from harm. I have survived one of the worst years of my life, and endured the persecution of taxpayer supported agencies that think they are in their jobs because they "deserve them" and have no servants' heart toward the purpose of helping people. I am talking about the Victim's Compensation program in Colorado where those men who cause or initiate terrible injuries to their wives are protected by the legal machinery if they are on cocaine and made to feel as if they deserve privilege because they use "cocaine for medicinal purposes." If that does not make you sick to your stomach, there is something wrong with you. My husband said in Court in July that he used cocaine for medicinal purposes and he is still at liberty. There is no such right as the right to use cocaine for medicinal purposes since he is NOT an MD and does not operate on peoples' noses. The State of Colorado is off track with its promotion and wink-wink-look-the-other-way to drug dealers and drug abusers who are almost always wive abusers and child molesters and perprators of much other evil. I am the victim of a crime, several times over, three times from my husband's law breaking, several times from law enforcement refusing to uphold the laws of the US and the state of Colorado about not prosecuting my husband [soon to be my ex-husband] for cocaine possession and use of,and refusing to enforce a restraining order against my husband though the Aurora Police were notified several times,and several times from health care professionals refusing to uphold professional standards of reporting to Law Enforcement for protection those who present in the ER for treatment who are victims of violence or at risk of being victims of violence [this per the fake Victim's Comp program of Arapahoe County Colorado who absolutely refuses to acknowledge medical injuries that happened as a result of my husband's violating the laws against domestic violence in the first place causing fear, anxiety and panic in me, then violating a specific Judge's order not to be in my dwelling or around me or harassing me or causing fear or panic]. I think the Victim's comp fund must be embezzling the funds that those arrested for crimes of domestic violence pay into the system or they would not have blinders on to the expensive injuries that are documented with xrays and hospital reports and MD's. They only want to throw a token of restitution into the frey to make it seem as if they are doing something to help the victim when in reality their jobs depend upon molly-coddling those who perpetrate violence because they pay the Courts, and some Judges, and secretaries and so-called counseling groups in order that they are able to remain at liberty and keep on keeping on being violent. The fees to not go to jail in Colorado for domestic violence according to my husband who ought to know are $10,000 paid into the Courts while the victim of his crimes, me in this case, has to endure one protracted Court room scene after another. I have been summoned to Court in the past year because of activities of my husband three times in Sheridan for the rent issues of his, not mine, I was not on that lease; one time to give testimony about his assault on me the second time, and about five times for the purpose of getting a divorce from him. The entire legal system is designed to make at risk women flee and leave every thing behind so their violent husbands gain their wealth or assets either directly or through expensive-to-the-poor-woman court proceedings for a divorce in what is supposed to be easy to obtain if there was domestic violence by husband. The State of Colorado Legislators presumably in an effort to protect women, said the State had to provide direct legal representation to those women who were victims in domestic violence cases and who earn less than the US Dept of Commerce's standard of poverty; but the Courts also ignore that law and the money is usurped on what they pretend is legal representation and that consists of a class on representing yourself in court with no real lawyer's help whatsoever in a particular case.That kind of useless "help" no doubt fills the so-called volunteer lawyers' pockets with the money set aside to help the victims while giving no real help in return. I know this because in the past week, I spent $37 on fees to have my husband served by the Sheriff, with the Contempt of Court citation that the Judge signed that the law requires, and $47 on making copies of my documents that the Judge said on a paper he sent to me that he required but then didn't require of my husband [who has a paying job and plenty enough money to buy cocaine for "medicinal purposes"] yet did not comply with any thing any Court told him to do!.My husband said to me he would rather have cocaine than a wife and my response was from THE BIBLE. I am not under bondage to a fool who rejects the truth of GOD in order to drug himself to death with illegal substances. My husband is not a fool in some ways,however since he thinks the magic words to get by with using cocaine are "medicinal purposes" because he read it in the socialist news called The Denver Post. That newspaper is the tool of the devil himself promoting that humongous lie being foisted upon the public in Colorado by the drug dealers and drug addicts that pinning that label of "medicinal use" on law-breaking and ruinous destructive habits of cocaine, somehow makes it "socially acceptable" and of course, their frequent propaganda pieces for the baby-killing establishment of Colorado. The whole lot of them make me sick to my stomach. The system in Colorado not only allows cocaine and other illegal drug use --it encourages it and protects it for the rich. It does take a rich person to afford cocaine and that habit identifies the rich by its presence because the truly poor cannot afford it. Or maybe it is that the truly poor have more sense than the rich. My grandmother once said to me, that "some people have more money than sense." For proof of that read the article about Leona Helmsley that is in the week's news. The rich seem to lose their ability to think or reason or maybe it is that they forsake GOD and lose their souls in the process?

I attribute my boldness on these subjects to the scriptures that are given above because I know GOD alone is my protection and provision, and if I had trusted in Denver or Arapahoe County law enforcement to protect me, I'd be dead now.
