You know those often complicated pages and pages of directions that come with nearly everything. Sometimes they are poorly translated from Chinese, often they are in seemingly hundreds of languages, sometimes they’re so complicated and hard to follow you just toss them aside. One thing is for certain – they are always just the manufacturer’s opinion how the item is supposed to be assembled and work.
If only life came with directions. More specifically, if God laid out our life and His plans for us that we could follow, life would be much simpler. It seems I have some choices to make regarding job opportunities. There is an opening on day shift where I work, but if I apply and get it, it seems like I may be stuck there the rest of my life. I’m not very excited about my job any more. I’m thinking about possibilities of going out on my own in some business. Some directions would really come in handy right now.
We don’t need a ‘balanced approach’ to the budget crisis, as Harry Reid and the President have talked about. The budget crisis is really a spending problem. The proper way to handle it is to have huge cuts in spending….enough to get the spending in ‘balance’ with the tax revenues. The proper ‘balanced approach’ is to lower the spending so it’s in balance with the income.
Contact your congressman and representative and let them know that we don’t need to raise the debt ceiling, we need to get spending in line with tax revenues!
I had to take our dog, Jimmy to the vet last week and have him put to sleep (nice way of saying I paid someone to kill him). Jimmy was in very poor health. He didn’t eat for weeks, didn’t drink much water and was very weak. Goodbye Jimmy. I was surprised when after they took him in the back room, they brought him into the exam room and did the deed right in front of me. It was sad to see it happen.
Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -”No, you move.”
