In the Exodus account, Israel suffered without apparent sin. It prays (cries) for help, and God hears and sends a redeemer [Moses].

Facing Senate resistance to the majority of his budget savings measures, the treasurer, Joe Hockey, said the government would have no choice but to find the savings from other programs if senators carried out threats to block large parts of the budget.
“It’s not retribution if the choices made by other political parties are so flawed,” he told the ABC. “We are not going to step away from the fact that the budget needs to be repaired.
“It is something a lot of the senators need to think carefully about … we have got to deal with reality, the budget must be repaired.”
The Palmer-Abbott double cross has shafted the Australian public. If you have one ounce of understanding how this system of deception works you would know how you've been conned..
