Funny how reading the facts along with one man's opinion can completely change how I look at this man. Why would the Republican party wish to be associated with such a man.

I've been rather silent, mostly because I've been busy working. I was also trying to write an essay on slavery but since I can barely keep up with my normal blog I kind of pushed that back. You just can't try to be someone you aren't. And your blog ultimately needs to be written for yourself, not others. I don't have to try to please anyone, just be myself. Lately I've become disheartened by the futility of changing the way government operates. You just can't change it from top down. The problem as I see is that once you get to Washington DC, you need to insure that you stay there to make a difference because change happens so slowly there. And because of democracy, you stay in power by being popular. The fastest and most sure way to popularity is to give stuff away.

I've enjoyed watching the Sunday morning political shows yesterday. First Lady Laura Bush, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Secretary Robert Ritch, columnist George Will, Caroline Kennedy, they are all just people. They are people that I would love to sit down and chat with.

There are some blogs that I have enjoyed keeping up with, Vox, Pieter, Buried Treasure, Vroom.

A woman goes to the post office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards.

She says to the clerk, "May I have 50 Christmas stamps?"

The clerk says, "What denomination?"

The woman says, "God help us. Has it come to this? Give me 6 Catholic, 12
Presbyterian, 10 Lutheran and 21 Baptists, and 1 Episcopalian."

Optimism, Hope, Deliverance,

Its Christmas, and that is what Christ's comming is all about.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Founders Quote Daily

"A judiciary independent of a king or executive alone, is a good
thing; but independence of the will of the nation is a solecism,
at least in a republican government." --Thomas Jefferson

No time to blog but I can tell you that life is going great. I am working on a few essays but I know that time is flying by. I know that my fans really want to hear what is going on with me. Well, I have been blessed with three part time opportunities and together they and paying just enough for now. So it is possible to get laid off, take less pay for more work, and still get by without collecting unemployment in this economy. That is not pointing fingers to the unemployed, its just me being utterly amazed at the grace of God to give me the opportunity to provide for my family! I am thankfull!
