America is too Young to Die

Here’s an excerpt from the “End of the Day” report that Gary L. Bauer e mails Monday through Fridays to my in box.  It is something to consider whether you are of either political persuasion.  Ask yourself, “Why?”  I have more to say at the end of the article. A Real Scandal Secretary of Defense …

Is There Not a Cause?

2004 is not all that long ago. I recall the manufactured “scandal” by Dan Rather and CBS over George W. Bush’s military records. That broke in September before his re-election to a second term. These major networks, for some reason are in the pockets of the Democrats. I suppose it is the work of Satan …

Police, Arrests, and Me!

Law and order has always been a challenge.  Whether it dates back to European days or further back to ancient days, human government was established post Noah’s flood.  Prior to that, God expected mankind to choose right and wrong according to his conscience.  Then later, Moses brought the Ten Commandments down from Mount Sinai and …

Naughty or Nice

Naughty or Nice In 2012 Mitt Romney ran a clean campaign. He was a “Mister Nice Guy” and it was so difficult for the press and the opposition to find any slime about him.  So what happened?  Too many voters stayed home and refused to vote for a Mormon.  President Obama is not a nice …

“America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great” (book review)

While this book contains numerous facts, it remains easy to read.  When it comes to nonfiction, readability is certainly important.  Unlike fiction, nonfiction does not tend to be “page turners” yet this book certainly kept my interest. Carson uses United States History and the Constitution, and his own life experience to weave a book that …

Pastors and Politics, a good Question

If your pastor exemplifies Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the prophets that took on moral decay, I am happy for you. It just seems rare these days to find a church where the pastor is well equipped to confront the culture of the day. This blog I am sharing may answer the reasons, and give you the …

Charleston and Choices

Generally I refrain from current events. This time I just cannot ignore the push I am feeling for writing thoughts on the events surrounding Charleston, South Carolina. For two years I worked in S.C. and must say, I did enjoy my brief stay there. The hospitality was very generous, the weather was much warmer than …

The One-Room Schoolhouse

This morning at the Senior Center, our singtime included schoolhouse songs from the past. That would be my past, in fact. We sang, “Clementine” and “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” Alas, those songs are not in my edition of the “Golden Book of Favorite Songs.” When I came back home, I reached for my …

Love in Work Boots and Our Police Officers

I just can’t get past the rioting and looting going on in Ferguson, Missouri. I also refuse to be judge and jury as the mainstream news carriers are doing in their reporting. Such civil unrest, in my opinion, is uncalled for. Every life is important to God. Every life. The color of the skin does …

Courage and the Green Family and Hobby Lobby

httI had another subject ready to post today but this is far more important. What Rebecca Hamilton, now recently retired from the OK State Representatives, has to say in regard to the Greens. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/publiccatholic/2014/06/the-greens-of-hobby-lobby-one-family-with-courage-is-a-majority/ I agree with her wholeheartedly. What the Greens courageously did was stand for Jesus and Jesus stood by them in setting …
