For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Political Aphorisms ... thx Sarah R!

If God wanted us to vote, 
he would have given us candidates . 
    ~Jay Leno~ 
The problem with political jokes 
is they get elected.

and appoint the great ones to public office.

there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.

go out and buy some more tunnel.

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, 
by promising to protect each from the other.

I offer my opponents a bargain: 
if they will stop telling lies about us,
I will stop telling the truth about them.

A politician is a fellow 
who will lay down your life 
for his country. 
    ~ Tex Guinan~ 
I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter
to be left to the politicians.

Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city,
it might be better to change the locks.
