Christmas Joy

If you are reading this entry, you’re probably well informed about the meaning of Christmas.  In all likelihood you could recite most of the New Testament Scriptures that reveal the mystery and divinity surrounding the birth of Christ.  As Christians, we’re all aware of the of the significance of Savior, Prince of Peace, Reigning King, coming to earth and beginning life in such a lowly place as a stable for animals.  Through the years, it has become increasingly more difficult to remain focused and intent on keeping Christ at the center of this celebration.  We’re all easily torn away from the core of the birth celebration, by the commercialization that seems to be hoisted upon us each Christmas season. The attack by retailers usually begins now in early...

Time Will Tell

The current strategy of the Democratic Party leading the nation right now, is to disparage and discount those who have awakened to attend town halls and voice their concern about the massive expansion of government.  We’ll see.  Elections will take place in the near future and then we’ll know whether this anger and concern is ginned up by hateful insurance companies, wacky radio talk show hosts, and executed by robotic puppets (the American people), or rooted in a genuine desire to preserve our American freedoms and choice of health-care.   Blue dog dems, watch out how you vote.  States with middle of the road spineless elected representatives like Arlen Specter from PA, be prepared to look for another profession. I think this article is measured...

“Those chickens have come home to roost”

»Posted by on Aug 9, 2009 in Life, Politics, Quotations | 0 comments

To quote a famous preacher and former pastor of BO for 20 years,  “…those chickens have come home to roost.”  This was of course the rationale Jeremiah Wright used for justifying the attack on our NY City twin towers  by Islamic radicals.  Well it looks like those chickens have come home to roost for our community organizer in chief.  BO was short on resume accomplishments (only in the US Senate for 140 days) so his main marquee headline was that of “Community Organizer” back in Chicago (aka agitator, trouble maker, organizing the people to oppose and challenge conventional wisdom or status-quo in government).  Now, BO has helped to organize and unify the Republican Party as no one else seems to have the ability to do.   This...

Community Organizer in Chief

»Posted by on Jul 25, 2009 in Politics | 0 comments

Ever since I first heard of BO about 2 years ago, the media image projected was that of a “community organizer.”  Never was sure what that meant except that it was  a nice (read deceptive) way to say he was a trouble maker.  But again, the image portrayed by all of his supporters along with his silver tongue (sans teleprompter) is  that he would bring everyone “together.”  We could all hold hands around the camp fire and sing “kum ba ya.”  Well.  Jeremiah Wright’s teaching and sermons are finally coming to light.   Let’s see who he’s managed to bring together.  Not the policemen who “stupidly” reacted to a black professor breaking his door in.  (Is stupidly a word?)  Race relations have...

Another King is Dead

»Posted by on Jul 1, 2009 in Life, Psychology, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I guess I’ll join in the fray and write about MJ ‘s untimely death. Or is it really so untimely?  How long would one realistically expect to live considering the toxic milieu of opiates and anesthetics allegedly floating in  his blood stream? All this is very familiar for those who where around when Elvis met a similar demise. For those of you still in the womb in 1976 (or was it 1977), not so familiar.  I remember the news reports streaming day and night.  Long lines and throngs of neurotic fans converged in front of  draped ironed gates at Graceland in Memphis.  Constant TV coverage erupted.  I remember reading  at the time that a nurse slipped a note to his physician who was seeing another patient with encrypted abbreviations that read,...
