Spring Time & Such

It seems like there is so much to do this time of year that there is hardly time to get it all done! It seems that way, because it is that way. In particular, this is the year I address some of the fruits of my procrastination-- such as painting the back deck, [maybe] the front porch and the brick foundation. I have a feeling that this is going to be a year of much change. At least, it's shaping up to be.

I was pleased to see Mike Huckabee announce that he is running for president. I like him and think he expresses the values I want to see addressed from the Oval office. I also like Dr. Ben Carson for many of the same reasons. Maybe we need a doctor to heal this nation. While criticized for his lack of political experience, I can't help but wonder if that isn't a plus?

I am tried of the old political machine that preaches the same stuff and delivers nothing but more back-room deals and empty promises. I do not trust Hillary Clinton and do not wish to see more of the same old thing in office. Also, I've had enough of the Bush family, as well as the Clinton regime (see, I'm bi-partisan-- in that regard). By the way, on the subject of old political machines: goodbye to Harry Reid and good riddance. His lack of integrity in the leadership of the Senate was nothing short of disgraceful. Maybe now the damage done to the Senate during his tenure can begin to be repaired.

Back to Hillary: Please tell me what Hillary Clinton has accomplished, either as Secretary of State or previously as Senator? I'd really like to know. Aside from [what seems to be] a poor resume, it seems like she has some serious trust issues. Why doesn't she answer these seemingly documented accusations of basically taking bribes for favors as secretary? Enough. We need some new faces in both parties.

Here ends my political rant. For now.

Slavery

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. -John 8:34 (HCSB)

All too often, Christians may feel constrained by their faith and what they know to be the expectations of their Heavenly Father. Sometimes, in certain churches, the list of "don'ts" may seem longer than the ancient laws of Israel. Occasionally 'religious' people will sadly get caught up in that sort of thing. That can be a turn-off for many people and a valuable asset to the enemy, who wants you to feel bound by law and a slave to some sort of religious creed. The God I know and love is a God of freedom. I am freer as a slave to Christ than I ever was as a slave to sin. How about you? Are you free in Christ or bound by sin?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?
