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.

Sports ... SamKat


I knew nothing about sports until I was 12 and in the sixth grade at Highland School in Portsmouth, Ohio.  Howard "Sticks" Brehmer was a great McConnell avenue man who coached the eighth grade team there and often asked me to practice with them after my sixth grade practice.  I liked sports immediately for the competitive reasons kids enjoy in sports.  

I grew up continuing in the love of 'the game', whatever it was.  I have been witness to great ones from all over this world.

Right now Donald Trump brought  his condemnation of pro sports who "take a knee" .  I agree with our great president.

As a young draftee in the US Army, I thought it was like football practice, until it came to bayonet practice.  The husky black Sergeant who taught us that game, woke me to the realization that in war, service people are being trained to act for the team they were on in "killing ' the enemy.  Kill?  Me?  I am a twenty year old Christian from a large Portsmouth family.  I want to win the game, but I don't want to kill.

Fortunately, I didn't use the hand to hand bayonet training.  In fact I sat behind a desk in Tokyo, Japan for seventeen months.

North Korea is bringing on a terrible conclusion for our world.  I don't hate North Koreans.  I do want to beat them, but this will mean a lot of killing when it starts.  Their ruler king, not gifted with intelligence, but with birth to a tyrant is bringing it on.

My Christian hope is for God to send Jesus to earth again.   

God brought the flood before Noah.  We are still paying for the sins of Adam and Eve, but God please help us keep the first of the Ten Commandments - "Thou shalt not kill" again.  Not as cowards, but as loving Christian soldiers.

Life goes on in Heaven and the Creator of all deserves our praise for the best things of life.  Family-Love-Religion- 
and winning in the right way.
