What kind of America do I want to live in?

In the quest to answer the question, "Who would Jesus vote for?", that question has also come up. I think of stuff like September 11, and about Katrina and the response there. I think of how much more difficult our life is now than it was four years ago. Don't think I'm blamingĀ our life situationĀ on … Continue reading What kind of America do I want to live in?

And, again… they have to go back to ’92. Give up, already!

http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/12/10/huckabee.aids/index.html So, I guess this means he'll probably lose his many homosexual supporters (rolleyes) ...And, once again, he doesn't back down. Go Huck!!! During his Senate run, Huckabee also told the AP in the questionnaire that he found homosexuality to be "an aberrant, unnatural and sinful lifestyle." Speaking Monday in Miami, Florida, Huckabee said he … Continue reading And, again… they have to go back to ’92. Give up, already!

Ladies and Gentlemen, May I Present …a Viable Presidential Candidate!

You know it's gotta be true --the press (a.k.a "The Liberal Media") is already in full-on attack mode trying to trip him up.

On an extravagant month (like back last summer when I experimented with buying more organic … Continue reading I don’t know whether to laugh or cry…

Thoughts on Stuff and Food and …other stuff

We stopped by the library this morning and I picked up two books by Peter Menzel --"Material World," which (I've not read it yet, only scanned it enough to get the idea) compares the worldly possessions of various people around the world. The second, which I'm almost half finished with is "Hungry Planet," which is … Continue reading Thoughts on Stuff and Food and …other stuff

In Plenty and In Want… or, Choices Have Consequences (hi, dad!)

I heard it said once that when you're young, you tend to be more liberal, and as you get older, you grow more conservative in your views. I'm finding that to be the opposite, personally.
