There is alot of talk in many LDS circles about how the devil will try to stop you from doing what's right. Put up blockaids in your way.
It's a belief that I personally have.
However, sometimes it's just bad luck. Sometimes it's not Satan, but God getting in the way, because what we are about to do is wrong. Most Mormons can't seem to recognize this.
I think that's John Jacob's problem.
Either that, or he's blantantly trying to court the LDS vote, because his "John Jacob Jingoistic Hype" show isn't resonating with Brother Voter.
Jacob's bad luck: Is it . . . Satan?
You see, apparantly, it's all Satan's fault that John Jacob's business deals have gone south. Not the fact that John Jacob has been spending more time campaigning and less time businessing than he used to.
It's all Satan's fault.
