Back From The Dead

I feel as though I am back from the dead, after fighting for several days with a nasty bug. Yesterday was spent almost entirely in bed. The past two days have involved a lot of sleep, vitamins, pain relievers and decongestants. I am happy to report that I am in 'recovery mode' and expect to be back to normal by tomorrow. Thank God.

Work has been tremendously stressful lately, as each day seems to reveal more uncharted territory to explore. There is a good side to this for me, as it compels me to remember my limitations and rely on God for peace and stability more than I might when things are "going well." It is also a great opportunity to learn new things. I enjoy taking on new responsibilities-- I only wish  had more time to learn them without feeling pressured by time constraints. I am grateful to have the job, especially in times like these. I never have bought into the hype of a 'recovering economy,' not when I know there are so many in need. To consider a part time, low paid employee to be the same status as a full time, highly paid person is dishonest and gives a false sense of security to the uninformed American. It is my hope and prayer that this country can return to some sane, conservative values before it is too late. The only place to begin is GOD.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14

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?

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…

Comey Testimony

It's been a while since I have seen the kind of hype that there has been around having Director Comey testify in front of the Senate today. It seems worse than Watergate! There also seems to be no evidence thus far except for of the here-say variety .

No less than 5 times did he call President Trump (or his administration) a liar. Aside from what that does to the office of the President, it takes away from getting things done that so desperately need to get done. Now, please don't misunderstand, if there has been serious wrongdoing on the part of the Trump administration, then they need to be called out on it. We have already recently had 8 years of "anything-but-transparency" in Washington.

Reading the New York Times would lead one to the conclusion that this was a bad day for the Trump administration. I'm not so sure of that. I'm not huge fan of the President, but have to say that I did not hear anything qualifying as evidence to bring about impeachment pro…
