BACK to the CONSTITUTION! (click here for full blog)

I was listening to the third presidential debate a couple of weeks ago(I’m not really sure why…), and one of the early questions by Chris Wallace was this; “If you are elected president, where would you like to see the Supreme Court take our nation?”. I about came unglued. I nearly rose up from my chair, as I said, “Wallace, that is a stupid question!”. Here’s why I think it is so stupid. He is encouraging, by this question, the continuation of the mentality which we have adopted in America over the last few decades. That is, acceptance of the fact that our judicial system is properly functioning with activist judges. Nothing could be further from the truth, and nothing is more detrimental to a system that demands fairness and justice, than having judges which go beyond their purview of interpreting the law, and position themselves to actually write the law. So I said, “Let me answer that question Mr. Wallace. I want the Supreme Court to take us BACK to the CONSTITUTION! ”. When you have nine people who assume that it is acceptable to go beyond the parameters of the original intent of the Constitution, then we no longer have a third branch of government which will properly function to keep the other two branches in check. Rather, we have an overreach which will do damage to the American populace. You see, we have gotten to the place that we think we must have a “balance of power” on the Supreme Court. This is absurd. Here’s what the balance of the Supreme Court should be on almost...

My thoughts about the presidential race (click here for full blog)

Someone asked me what I thought about the presidential race. I said it’s like going to the zoo and visiting the monkey display; and watching them throw their poop at each other!! This is America. And it is pathetic that these are the two candidates who are vying for the most powerful position in the world. There is no statesmanship, no patriotism, no ethics, no morality, no character that is worth modeling, no history of integrity, no display of honesty, no virtue within their marriage relationships, no genuineness within their religion, no indication of a future hope for our great Republic. All they talk about is demeaning each other, defending their personal failures which are being exposed through a vicious media which can hardly wait for the dawning of a new day anticipating that it will bring more viral blood to add to the ravenous feeding frenzy of a culture void of judgment. What do we tell our children and our grandchildren? That in the year 2016 we sealed our fate as a once great nation, now poised to be the latest to be discarded on the trash heap of defunct, defeated, disgraced, destroyed, despicable democracies. I am sick and tired of hearing these carnivorous candidates trying to defend their pathetic pasts and trying to convince the populace that they are the best thing since sliced bread. Their bread is stale and moldy and is already maggot infested. With these two candidates, you can better believe that no one wins on November 8 — America loses! Is there not a cause? Is there no one in America who is...

“and because iniquity shall abound…” (Click here to view complete post)

In Matthew chapter 24 the disciples came to Jesus and asked “what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?”. Then Jesus responded with a long dissertation which gives us some keen insight into the end times. In verse 12 he says, “and because iniquity shall abound…”. I was visiting with someone just the other day, and we were both remarking about the fact that we have never seen so much lawlessness as we are experiencing today. I’m not sure that there’s any better way to describe what we are seeing in America and around the world. Drugs, divorce, family turmoil, killings, hatred, bullying, greed, thievery, lying, scams, abortion, racism, slander, wickedness, evil, terrorism — on and on! LAWLESSNESS. I don’t know any better way to describe what is happening all around us than this word. The world seems to be abounding in lawlessness. We are like a band of vigilantes — outlaws. There is total disrespect for life, liberty, personal property, position, authority, and boundaries. More and more people are living outside the law, with total disrespect for the law. Just like in the Old Testament at the time of the judges, the very last verse of that book says, “in those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes”! There are consequences for lawbreakers. And we can better believe that there will be consequences in America and throughout the world if we continue to embrace lawlessness. And if we continue to ignore the King of Kings, and the fact that we...

Colin Kaepernick and the national anthem demonstrations (click here to read the full blog)

I would like to address Colin Kaepernick, quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, and his non-discerning cohorts who choose to sit, or take a knee, or raise a fist at their NFL football games during the playing of the national anthem. First of all I want to be extremely clear in stating the fact that I believe in, and support, Colin’s right of free speech. That is one of the very basic and cherished freedoms of our wonderful country. Now having said that, I would like to point out that Mr. Kaepernick has taken a very ignorant, non-discerning, dishonoring, misleading, divisive, and self-aggrandizing approach to try to  prove his point. He stated that his point was, “I won’t stand to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people”. We are talking about a country Sir that has afforded you the opportunity to really make something of yourself. To let you grow up and achieve stardom, fame, wealth, education and success. Why don’t you get your head out of your… helmet, and realize that what you are doing has nothing to do with racial injustice. This is not a black-and-white issue. This is a red white and blue issue! You are not making a case against oppression. You, and your cohorts, and now anyone else who has chosen to join your misguided campaign are making a case of gross dishonor. You are dishonoring our veterans. You are dishonoring our military. You are dishonoring our history. You are dishonoring our heritage. You are dishonoring our Country. You are dishonoring our flag. You are dishonoring every man and...
