Watching Bowling For Columbine, finally. They're talking about school violence, and I still wonder what I would have turned out like, had I not been delivered from my own little hellish experience in Glenwood. I know the three years I was there did enough damage on my ability to relate to people --I still assume … Continue reading Thoughts on “Bowling for Columbine,” Back to School Edition
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 blaming our life situation on … Continue reading What kind of America do I want to live in?
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!
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. Sounds like they're smelling a threat to me (grin)! ...How ironic is it that they have to dig all the way back to 2002 to find any dirt? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071207/ap_on_el_pr/huckabee http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2007/12/05/huckabee.interview.cnn?iref=videosearch Good grief. … Continue reading Ladies and Gentlemen, May I Present …a Viable Presidential Candidate!
Quoted from an article on cnn.com regarding an Ohio school shooting case: "I ain't justifying nothing," a friend told CNN affiliate WOIO. "I ain't saying he did the right thing, but I am saying he got pushed for a long time and asked them people to help, help, help, help, but nobody helped." I have … Continue reading I’m Mad as …well, you know.
Currently on ABC, the championship round of the national spelling bee is pre-empting a rerun of Grey's Anatomy. I am one happy camper. Perhaps there is hope for this media-obsessed nation after all :). One question, though. How on earth did a CANADIAN wind up in the AMERICAN national spelling bee?!? Come on, you mean we … Continue reading but, maybe there is hope after all!
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
Our state has a vote tomorrow on defining marriage as between a man and a woman (as opposed to same sex), and I am having a really hard time getting excited about voting for it. I'm kind of surprised at myself. For two weeks now, there's been an insert in my church bulletin telling me … Continue reading Grassroots Christianity
