ACLU: Communism is the Goal

Irony is defined as "the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning." The term doublespeak means "evasive, ambiguous language that is intended to deceive or confuse."

      There is perhaps no greater example of ironic doublespeak than inclusion of the phrase "civil liberties" within the inapt designation: "American Civil Liberties Union."

Hope in Heaven

The book of Job has come to my mind a lot lately. When we go through a trial, great or small, Job almost always gets referred to. We look to it for comfort because Job and his wife (who, incidentally only gets a dishonorable mention in the account at the beginning, Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. And then in the end she bears 10 more children for Job and her name is never brought up) are burdened with unimaginable grief from every corner of their life. They made it through the pain and heartache, Job suffers through the cruelty and well meaning rudeness of his friends who felt they needed to give an answer when all along Job didn’t need an answer, he and his wife needed a true friend.

What the H#*! is Wrong With Us?!

"S#*! My Dad Says" is one of TV's latest attacks on American morality, insulting our intelligence, taxing our tolerance, and testing to see just ow far the boundaries, and our silence, can be stretched.  We even refuse to address the fact that "Stuff" is not a four letter word.  Yes, the show’s creators have changed the audio translation for listening ears, but not the show’s name as it appears with suggestive expletives during its airing and in any and all advertisement.

We the People

The Constitution of the United States of America starts with “We the people”.  The Declaration of Independence second paragraph states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. The Founding Fathers of the United States emphasized We. America was set up to be a Republic in which Representatives were elected by We the people (voters).  Without participation from We the People, the system of representation does not work well. Many of us, especially Christians are a part of the “Silent Majority”; we wish to live our lives and are busy with our own family. But after a hundred years or so, the “Silent Majority” has been so effective at being silent that America has slowly been hijacked by those who were Not Silent.

Life's Potholes

On our way to Children’s Hospital we were listening to the radio. Traffic was horrible. We heard on the radio that there were 5 or 6 cars with flat tires because of a huge pothole in the left lane of route 670.

There you are. You have a plan. You left home in plenty of time to get to work or you left with plenty of home to get the hospital before the person went into surgery, or to get to whatever appointment you had. You had no idea there was going to be a pothole that would get in the way of your plans!
