Thank You, Media!

Thank you, CNBC, for drawing attention to the fact that the media is so biased against anybody not liberal. I think the moderators did a fine job of demonstrating that in blatant fashion during the last GOP debate. Although not particularly supportive of  a Ted Cruz candidacy in the past, I applaud his quickly [but well] thought-out response to the nonsensical and [often] inflammatory line of questioning aimed at the candidates. This is indicative of not only the NBC family, in my opinion, but many other media outlets as well. It is time we stop pandering to liberal concerns whose agenda is to grow government more and more with each new "program" of giveaways at the working person's expense. It's easy to be generous with other people's money, isn't it? Social safety-nets are nice and should be required of any civilized society to some degree, but when we make it attractive not to put effort into finding a job, something is wrong. Quite often, in many situations, that is exactly what we do these days with our abundance of programs for the underprivileged and folks who just need a break. I can remember when churches and local communities took care of those needs.

We have so many issues to address in this country that are vital and very much time-sensitive, that to waste time with debates where questions arise about fantasy football is nothing short of pathetic. Thanks again, media, for bringing this shortcoming squarely to our attention!

Hopefully, the next debate on the Fox Business Network will actually provide some substantive answers to questions we need to know more about in regard to our candidates.

By the way, I wholeheartedly concur with those who say that any of those candidates wold make a better president than Hillary Clinton. Any of them.

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?

Just a bit of DISGUST...

I've got to admit I expected more from the do-nothing body we call Congress with its GOP majority at present. Instead, we got more of the same old tired rhetoric we have been getting for the past 7+ years now about how terrible Obamacare is.

The plan they managed to produce after all this time (Paul Ryan's) is not much better than what is in place and apparently leaves a lot of middle-class people financially screwed. I understand it polled with a 17% approval rate. All I know is the many votes over the past few years to repeal it were nothing more than political grandstanding --  a waste of time and taxpayer money. All the Republicans seem to be able to do is criticize and come up with little to offer themselves. They cannot even seem to reach a consensus among themselves (a problem they have had as long as I can remember).

Personally, I have felt for a long time that they should simply fix what is in place so it works better and offers more flexibility with lower costs. I th…

Get On With It!

When we learned last night of the appointment of special counsel to look into the accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, we were initially impressed with the measured response from the President. However, as I stated to my wife last night, I would have been surprised if that didn't all change by morning. And so it did. Why can't he leave leave matters alone and keep his fingers off of his smartphone or whatever gadget he uses to bombard Twitter with tweets that signify immaturity and are often caustic, to say the least?

I think if I were President Trump or on his staff I would welcome a special counsel investigation of the matter to put it to bed once and for all. Of course, I offer that with a presumption that he is innocent of accusations that have so far come without any evidence. Robert Mueller's credentials are basically impeccable and he is known as a man who will get to the bottom of things and follow the trail wherever it leads -- not…
