What do I mean when I say that tuning and getting our bikes ready for racing or riding is the same as tuning, and staying in tune of God’s will and be able to walk with him daily.
I’m kind of a off road motorcycle and race junkie and well I believe there this a direct correlation between the two, whether it’s your race bike or trail bike it does not matter having a properly tuned and handling bike is no difference than having our lives in tune with God and and being ready to do his will.-Jeremiah 12:5
First off what do we know about race bikes or motorcycles in general in this day in age? Horsepower, it is in abundance we have plenty of it whether it’s a 450 or 125 today’s motorcycles have plenty of power.
Horsepower is sort of like information on God, these days he have tons of information. Bibles in print on your tablet on the computer, I’m a big fan of Biblegateway.com there you get every Bible translation known to be at a click of the mouse. Bible bookstores, churches online bookstores there is a lot of resources out there and what does that tell you.
Too much information is like too much power on a bike. Having the right amount of power and having the right kind of Godly and Biblical information is important.
The wrong kind of information can lead you astray, into hard times or discouraged, the wrong kind of power or not knowing how to use that power can cause us to ride too slow, too timid or crash all the time.
So what do we do about too much power on a bike, racers I know and trail riders sometimes will add devices to their bikes to help manage the bikes power.
Recluse auto clutches are the big thing right now that helps give you better power delivery better traction; this helps smooth out the power. Riders that have smaller bikes will add better less restrictive exhaust pipes, port the cylinders adding better fuel delivery devices help the bike with power issues.
Same goes with the information we have for a better spiritual life, finding the right Bible translation that helps explain God’s word to us, trust me on this I have many years of reading and listening to Bible teachings and it was not until one day I listened to a different translation (a different way of explaining the word of God in the Judeo – Christian fashion) that God’s word really started to come to life and things really started to make more since to me and stick to my mind better. Ecclesiastes 1:13
Reading the right books or commentaries on God’s word is important; we can get stuck in a rut reading the same feel good information that does nothing for us. It’s like having the power of a 500 cc bike but since it may be too much or the wrong kind of power for us in our current relationship with Jesus we never are able to go faster, rider better or gain information about God to help us grow.
Since power is in abundance then what is really the more important thing for us to have on a bike and in our lives? Handling, it’s so important to have a bike that handles and is very important to be able to have a better tuned spiritual life with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Racers know that just because you have a powerful engine does mean anything if you don’t have a good handling bike.
A good handling 250F with properly tuned suspension, the right sag adjustment and good tires can outperform a 450F any day when the right rider is on board.
Having the correct Biblical and spiritual information and applying it to our lives is similar. Reading our Bible, learning from lessons by way of Church or Sunday schools is like tuning our forks and rear shock on our bikes. Proverbs 18:15
If we don’t know how to respond to daily life by not understanding God of the Bible and what Jesus teaches us then we might get thrown on the ground or have to just settle for not being able to perform to God’s expectation in everyday life.
Maintenance is also a must when owning a race or trail bike, we all know if you neglect your bike sooner or later it will fail on us. Sometimes small things will happen and sometimes catastrophic things can happen.
I once know a guy that had and older Honda CR 250 1989 model I believe, when I had met him and got to know him I asked when was the last time you changed your piston in the engine. He told me never, it’s a 250 why would need to change the piston.
A month later we talked on the phone and in good spirits he told me his bike blew up. The piston literally blew up; he had piston bits in his exhaust and lower end.
The bike finally got stressed enough and the piston got loose enough that it catastrophically failed him and it took him over a year to get the money and time to rebuild the bike.
Our spiritual lives are the same, if we don’t do maintenance with our relationship with God we can lose that relationship with him and some people will catastrophically loose their way from God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit not something I recommend to do or try. Luke 8:13
Going to church, Sunday school, reading the Bible or healthy and Godly commentaries of how God loves us and how we follow his will is the maintenance we need to do to keep from failure and to keep our hearts and minds on God’s heart and mind.
Just like how we would get ready for a race or trail ride we should do the same with God, we should study his word like we ready our bikes. Trust and know who Jesus is and what he can do for us and how we can serve him just like we trust our bikes to start and how it serves our enjoyment if we take the time to keep it maintained.
This cartoon was posted by a Facebook friend the other day and I thought it was quite interesting since I follow both the abortion and communism issues fairly close.
What this cartoon does fail to show is the number of abortions worldwide making the number much more staggering at 1.7 billion from 1973 to 2013, 40 years of society that allows death based on a lie.
I find the difference between Nazism, communism and row V wade is Nazi’s and the Communist party’s actions were so brutal and in your face with their philosophy of killing and who they killed that they failed to convince the world this was a good or acceptable idea.
Progressive leftist who are now the new communist party without the sickle and hammer are able to hide the killings of 57.5 millions of humans from the world by killing them where nobody could see them in the womb then convincing society a lie that this is a right to allow women the control over their bodies.
In reality women always have been in control of their own bodies but legalized abortion allowed people to kill without anyone viewing the actual murder.
Progressives now are in the process to brainwash people that this is a much needed procedure that will cure population control, end global warming and fix economic inequality.
If we look deep into the progressive arsenal we find communism and atheism both follow this creed to have population control, promote global environmental extremism and economic equality.
This is why I feel any Christian that tries and walk the line of economic equality or environmental extremism are walking down a path of destruction filled with abortion, socialism and secularism and find a direct conflict with the Christians faith.
For a Christian to remain true to God’s word and walk with Jesus they cannot compromise with God’s morality and ethics otherwise they risk watering down God’s word and Jesus’ life with immoral and inaccurate content so as to be relevant or equal with the today’s issues.
If you think comparing Nazism and communism with Row v Wade is over the top through one thought or another think about this. Everything Hitler, Stalin did in their country was legal.
Progressives love to frame abortion like this, “it’s our bodies your taking away a woman’s right to end her unborns life”. The article is scary to think our society is demanding this but reality is It’s not, abortion is becoming an extreme idea.
The writer of the article tries to call an abortion medical care, whatever happened to do no harm I guess they forgot that one. Those of us who oppose abortion are called anti-choice yet does not the choice start before the baby is made.
You choose to have sex and bam a child is made, yes we know pro abortion advocates will want to use rape and incest to condone abortion but be honest this is a tiny percent and believe it or not there are churches and groups out there that will take on the responsibility for these babies that are born.
If a culture wants to hang on to a small percentage and condone killing knowing unborn children are living and feeling inside the mother then we now have a corrupt and bankrupt society.
The shocking thing is they actually pick on more than one religion. Normally leftist progressives will focus on Christians or Christianity but I have to say they seemed to try and spread the love hate here. I’m going to just lay out the Christian points since I’m not Muslim or Hindu, I’ll stay out of their domain.
First of the 12 ideas they go after is the concept of Chosen people: This is where lack of reading and understanding your Biblical text bites you and shoots out a red flag in this article, for sure an atheist wrote this (Valerie Tarico).
Chosen people is not an idea it was a name given by God in the Old Testament to Abrahams lineage aka children of Abraham then later defined as the Jews or Hebrews. In the New Testament after dying for our sins by Jesus then his resurrection the chosen people now extend to everyone that excepted Jesus as their personal savior in their hearts and minds aka salvation.
Only God knows who will except his gift of salvation so only God has chosen these people something atheist and people not willing to give themselves to God can understand.
Heretics: people don’t like the word because it calls them out on their corrupting of God’s word. Heretics tend to water down Gods word or misinterpret Biblical text to fit their immorality.
Atheists look at it as religious people not being tolerant of others belief but as Christians we have to follow the basis of God’s word.
We are not to add to or take away to fit our needs. God fits our needs and we have to add to or take away from our lives to receive what God can give us.
Holy War: Something we see in Islam constantly and it’s apart of their culture. Early Catholic leadership used this to try and free Israel and fight back Islam but in all reality Christians do not fight in Holy wars not for the last few hounded centuries.
What one century mistake made has always followed the Catholic Church and Christianity but let’s be real guys Christians don’t do holy wars.
Blasphemy: Again the writer not understanding Biblical text somewhat gets this wrong in the Christian definition; they have it right in the Islamic definition.
God gives us free will so the ability to disbelieve in God is tolerated but does not go unpunished but man will not dole out that punishment that will be left up to God.
Making fun of Christians and God is something Christians do not like or encourage but living in a free society we have to deal with it and sometimes except its existence but we as Christians are not to harm the offender but to defend God with truth and righteousness.
Glorified suffering: Something that is not really practiced anymore. The definition given in this the article is basically an old concept of injuring one’s self to keep you on the narrow path of right.
Tarito use the crucifix as a glorified torture again not understanding Biblical history can bite you. God does not and has not suggested injuring one’s self as a means to make things right, this is a man made concept.
Forgiveness has always been God’s way of making things right since the resurrection of Jesus. Our suffering as Christians do glorify Gods name and I go back to again not knowing and understanding your Biblical text and history will mislead you from the truth.
Genital mutilation: something Islam is known for not Christianity or Jews but Tarico has the stones to say circumcision is a form of genital mutilation talk about being out of touch and hating anything that God has commanded is but wow.
Hell: Yes hell is in the Bible because God created hell, Tarico suggest it is used to change or curb bad behavior and to a degree it is used.
Man still sins and does bad things no matter if there is a heaven or hell. If there is no hell then there is no heaven, the idea of everyone except Hitler is going to heaven is just not reality or Biblical.
Christians are not happy that people Hitler and Stalin existed but they do and did and God has made a place for them.
Christians don’t want to see anyone walk that path but it is a reality since God gave free will. If the concept of hell scares you to do the right thing and seek God out then that’s not a bad thing in my opinion.
Eternal Life: Atheist hate this because it’s not fare so they call this a fairytale. Tarico again lacks the Biblical understanding and states the problem with eternal life is it keeps people from seeing the beauty of what we already have on earth.
“The real reason that the notion of eternal life is such a bad invention, though, is the degree to which it diminishes and degrades existence on this earthly plane. With eyes lifted heavenward, we can’t see the intricate beauty beneath our feet. Devout believers put their spiritual energy into preparing for a world to come rather than cherishing and stewarding the one wild and precious world we have been given”-Torico
Not so, eternal life is just a bigger reward. What is here on this earth is be bigger in heaven and in the new earth that God will have waiting for us. Believe me I have seen some of Gods greatest creations in this country and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the next.
Male Ownership of Female Fertility: This idea is a complete misunderstanding of Biblical text to think God condones female ownership and women are slaves to men. No God celebrates women baring children as a great gift. Women were created by God to have children to continue the human race how much more of a gift from God could there be.
Bibliolatry (aka Book Worship): Now this is really stretching it and again the lack of understanding Biblical text shows us just how much lack of knowledge is at play here.
The concept of Bibliolatry is a direct contradiction of the 1st commandment and nobody that follows God and seeks the truth of Jesus worships the Bible they worships God of the Bible.
I suspect that Tarico thinks all religious idea are bad, I do feel she made some progress by adding Islam and Hindu to the list but but also loses it with some very illogical and communist remarks.
Pretty much she is reaching on most of these concepts. There is a lot of misunderstanding, hate, lack of Biblical studying and understanding of who and what God is so we can’t expect much with this blog.
END OF THE WEEK LOWDOWN DIRTY SAME OF IT ALL JAN 23
End of the week and this was a pretty big one, odd how it seesaws’ up and down like that.
First off; State of the union where our President has assured us “the shadow of crisis has passed, and the state of the union is strong.” Almost the way a king or god might say it or a wannabe king or god.
Besides telling us we are safe he also want to give everything away for, free collage, money, phones, houses you need it and can’t afford it somebody else will pay for it.
Movie American Sniper rolled out over 160 million dollars worth of movie as Hollywood tells the story of American Hero Chris Kyle and guess who is jealous. Seth Rogan and Michael Moore chime in to try and discredit both Kyle and the movie. First with Moore calling Kyle a coward. Rogan next by calling the movie Nazi propaganda.
Moore the true communist, he makes no apologies while Rogan cowers and tries to say well I didn’t mean that, maybe Moore was confused about what movie had the coward.
42 years ago yesterday January 22 the American government died, as Row v Wade was decided that abortion was legal and you the American citizen may have to pay for it.
This does not mean Americans are evil or died with its supreme court, no as an American I am against abortion and will keep this issue in prayer.
As Americans we can make a choice not to follow this destructive path and pledged to defend the lives that cannot defend themselves.
From Charisma Magazine Pope Francis has to tinker with his comments “Breed like rabbits” I guess the Pope should have read my blog that explained what he meant, maybe I need to apply for Popes PR man or proof his speeches. In the end the Pope tries to blame poverty on economic inequality again walking that fine line of socialist communism that is going to bite Francis hard someday or make him a world leader.
Again from Charisma Anderson Cooper tries to tackle Larry Tomczak comments that Hollywood has an agenda. This video goes to show us just how out of touch silver spoon Cooper is to the real world.
Again from Charisma Magazine Larry Tomczak fires back at Ellen DGeneres in response to both Cooper and Ellen, this is a great video well worth seeing if you’re trying to defend traditional marriage.
And finally fromBarb Wire John Kerry and James Taylor go on tour together in Paris to sing “you got a friend” to France. President could not make it so lets send singing Kerry and Taylor to smooth things over.
Like I said busy week in the news, I too churned out three blogs this week.Illogical and absurd Monday where I took some of the most illogical and absurd blogs and articles of the left and progressive and put them in more of a moral and ethical perspective fill free to take a look
To Canard is error to Reed is denied, I’m a big motocross and supercross fan I love off road motorcycles. Last week two racers Trey Canard and Chad Reed crashed into each other and I go over who was to blame and did the punishment and crimes make it all worthwhile for the both of them.
Ungrateful Success was my take on the American Sniper Michael Moore and Rogan jealousy freak out. Pretty much Moore is a liar and Rogan is a jealous coward read and you be the judge.
Little past halfway in the month and we here in California need rain!!! Yeah it’s been nice weather but we need rain. Also stay healthy there has been some nasty’s going around and people are getting sick so up that vitamin C if you will.
By this time now I’m sure everyone reading this has heard the hubbub stink that both Michael Moore and Seth Rogan gave to the fairly new movie American Sniper.
For those of you that purposely stay away from the media and don’t know who Michael More, Seth Rogan, Chris Kyle and the movie American Sniper is I salute you but here is what you should know.
Chris Kyle is the most successful American sniper ever with a confirmed 160 kills he is a true American hero. American Sniper is a movie that chronicles his life as a sniper, a service man and as a family man.
Michael More is a communist film maker that makes mainly hack movies that subvert the American way of life. He has little success in the film market which he makes and directs most of his own movies but I’m sure that’s fine because he’s hates the free market unless of course when they give him money to make movies then he has no problem spending those dollars.
Seth Rogan is a bit not so funny actor that obviously get jealous. Most of his movies he plays subpar hack and loves to show his disgusting naked body to filmgoers.
What is going on here in my opinion is ungratefulness in the part of both Moore and Rogan. Both have had on and off again success due to the fact they live in a free country where soldiers like Chris Kyle have pledged their life to defend.
My main complaint has to do with Rogan, while I do know and understand Moore is a cowardice communist so nothing surprises me I am a little taken back by Rogan’s ungratefulness to have a career in the movie industry that most will tell you it’s hard to make happen and stay in a position where people want to make movies with you.
Why I say Rogan is so ungrateful is last month he and fellow actor James Franco both stared in the movie “The Interview” in which their characters get a chance to interview Kim Jung Un of North Korea.
The plot was of the actual interview with Kim Jun Un but also both characters were asked by the CIA to assassinate the Korean leader and from there hilarity ensues or so they say.
When North Korea heard this movie was going to be shown they asked Sony Pictures to not show it since it depicted their great leader and country in a bad light.
Soon Sony was hacked and the North Korean government was accused of hacking and trying to sabotage Sony in retaliation.
Now Americans wanted to see this movie and Sony agreed to show it in limited release on Christmas day and the reviews sucked but it was to be expected
Most everyone felt it was going to be a dumb movie anyhow but it pretty much failed only bringing in about $20 million for the opening day mainly due to limited release, you had the option to see it in limited theaters or download it at home.
That whole week after the opening day the movie was touted as the movie everyone who believes in free speech and expression needs to see. Many conservative talk shows encouraged people to see the movie even though it was bad it sends a message to Kim Jung Un that the free world is not afraid. Sony, Rogan and Franco are heroes and symbols of free speech.
I was tempted as well to watch the movie as it was showing on my Direct TV pay per view and out of support for free speech I was ready to view knowing this was going to be bad movie none the less I would at least view it and spit in Kim Jung Un’s eye.
Well that was until Sunday the 18th when both Moore and Rogan tweeted some very disrespectful remarks of the movie American Sniper.
Mind you nobody says you have to like a movie, nobody expects you to sit through a movie an if you dislike it to not say something.
American Sniper is not like most movies it’s about an American serviceman that put his life on the line. When the movie came out most all the critics started saying “Oscar”, “Bradly Cooper Oscar”.
Moores remarks via twitter was this My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse
Not surprising from a communist like Moore and I really doubt Moor had an uncle in World War 2 he’s probably lying. Again I’m not surprised by Moore this is what you expect from a progressive socialist.
Later Rogan tweets this comment
Rogans comments are in my opinion the most disrespectful again you have a right to dislike a movie but this goes beyond just disliking the acting, or cinematography this was pure jealousy of probably actor Bradly Cooper and to the director and producers of American Sniper.
A little over 24 hours later after a storm of tweets to condemn his comments Rogan retweeted these
So not only is Rogan ungrateful for staring in movies he’s very jealous when actors and movie’s do better than his do and when he gets called on the carpet for stupid remarks he does nothing but show no remorse but cower and insult more.
When it comes to Hollywood I’m not that big a fan of the internals that make up the industry. Yes I know Hollywood and most actors are flaming leftist with burning communist that keep the fires going.
I do love movies however and I do love movies that take the time to tell a story of the American individual like Chris Kyle
I don’t expect progressives to like, enjoy or ever see American Sniper but Rogans comments are pure jealousy and hate and thats not cool bro.
Normally I don’t ask people to join in on my protest but if you feel so incline
Or something like that a little different blog today than what you might be use to, one of my favorite sports Motocross is starting up again for 2015. Actually it’s Supercross indoor Motocross and to be honest I’m not as big as a fan of Supercoss as I am with Motocross but I still love it.
For those of you that don’t know what Supercross is well it is basically off road motorcycle racing in a stadium like a football or baseball stadium, riders race about 40 minute of racing (20 laps in the main event) and its big money.
Like all professional sports it too has its superstars, right now Ken Roczen, Eli Tomacare just two of the best in the world at what they do.
This year the talent pool is deep, Ryan Villopoto the defending champion has retired so this leaves a free for all of more than five racers that have a shot at the title not to mention another four or five racers that have a shot at race wins.
The incident that I will be referring to was last Saturday January 18th at the Anaheim 2 race were Team Honda rider Trey Canard crashed into Two Two Motorsports rider and owner Chad Reed. For those of you that watched the January 18th race there is no doubt that a mistake was made by Canard.
Both riders went down and both riders remounted only losing a few places. Canard remounted first and rode off slowly adjusting his goggles, Reed remounted seconds later.
Reed then took Canard very wide and elbowed him causing Canard to hit the tough blocks (safety blocks that line the track to keep riders on track) and crash again. Canard remounted once again and continued the race.
The FIA the international governing body of Supercross made the decision to black flag Reed one lap later. A black flag is a disqualification of a participant of the event and Reed had to end his race, losing money and points.
So did the punishment fit the crime and was the crime worth the punishment. After seeing the crash first hand on TV several times thanks to Fox Sports 1 I have to say Canard was at fault but this is nothing new.
In a sport like Supercross or any high speed motor sport mistakes are made and when mistakes are made the consequences can be catastrophic for not only the rider but sometimes other riders as well.
Both riders crashed and both riders remounted, mind you Canard was following Reed when he hit him then remounted first to lead Reed but I don’t believe it was in Canards mind to take out Reed but just a miscalculation by Canard.
Reeds retaliation really did not look all that bad, taking Canard wide then an elbow looked harmless but Canard was on the ground once again as he fell into the tough blocks.
Anytime a riders crashes or falls it become dangerous and could spell the end of the season with broken wrist or any bone for that matters something Canard knows very well after breaking his femur twice and his back once.
It’s possible that Canard crashed the second time on his own, in his interview he did say he was fiddling with his goggle but both riders maintain that each other caused a crash.
One also has to look at the money factor and the human factor when trying to get to the bottom of who is wrong.
Money is big in supercross and how one finishes can determine his payday. Most riders don’t live off the race to race purse money they tend to give that to their mechanics so if a rider fails to finish a race somebody is out no matter what.
Sponsors have contracts and all are different but the higher a riders places and the more TV time they get the more money comes their way.
Human wise super athletes like Reed and Canard have a drive to win, they hate to lose and they will race until the bike or their bodies can’t go anymore.
It’s not a shocker to hear Canard call Reed a cry baby and to have Reed try and elbow Canard it’s something that these type of athletes have that makes them do what it takes to win and sometimes in the heat of the moment you do or say things you later regret.
For some of you it might be known that Trey Canard is a professed Christian that for all purpose walks the walk and talks it too. It’s unknown where Reeds faith lies he keeps that to himself and he has that right.
This event was not something that should be celebrated, two riders made a mistake. Canard made a navigational error and Reed made personal error.
If we add Biblical principles to this situation we can see why the biggest error occurred with Reed.
If Reed had practiced those two verses I guarantee the end results would have been different in both Reed and Canards life and in their final results
At the end of the race Canard had raced back up to 11th place finish, causing one to think if they both would have just kept going without retaliation they would have finished inside the top 10 and that is a good finish for both riders crashing and having to remount.
Biblical principles also takes Canard to task as well, complaining and calling Reed a big baby may be tame but was it necessary and was it worth it. First Peter chapter 2 verses 23 tells us to keep looking forward and let God handle and judge offenders that have harmed you.
It’s very hard in the heat of the sport to sometimes think with a clear head but that is what makes a super athlete super.
Both racers lost that night one more than the other but both paid for each other’s decisions. Hopefully they can get past this race and look to the next neither riders blaming the other but both racing for themselves and for their teams time will tell.
It’s Monday again and time for some more Illogical and absurd articles from main stream media. Somewhat of a slow news week so the progressives kind of pushed the throttle down on a few of these articles rehashing some old ideas that they would love us to pay for or make illegal.
Ok let’s understand who the main stream media is, they make up of cowards that shout from a glass door. Main stream media has no problem standing up for freedom of speech and expression when they know it won’t get them killed. They are not afraid of Christians or Buddhist because they know Christians won’t retaliate but with Islam they are afraid.
Biard states every time they draw a cartoon of Mohammad or God they defend freedom of speech and I say no you don’t. Every time you draw a cartoon blaspheming God or any other religious symbol you are doing just that blaspheming a symbol that somebody holds important.
If you have no believes in anything then it makes it easy for you to make the statement your defending freedom of speech but look at it this way. If I were to tell unflattering embellishments about you or your family you might get offended you might even try and sue me.
Charlie Hebdo is a vulgar magazine at times, I’m not going to storm the doors and shoot your entire cartoonist but you insult my faith at times and I see nothing but insults not freedom in what you do.
Progressives and leftist love it when Pope Francis preaches about climate change and compromising on evolution but they hate it when people preach about birth control something very important to the Catholic faith.
This is where progressives despise Catholics and Christians for even thinking people take reproductive responsibility. Time keeps it tame but doe quote one person here to dig at the Popes stand on birth control.
They quote Jun Chura a former street child “Many terrible things happened to (street children) like drugs and prostitution,” said a former street child named Jun Chura. “Why is God allowing such things to happen? And why are there only very few people helping us?”
My response to Chura is I might ask you the same question, why are you allowing this to happen. You see the Pope and the Catholic/Christian church do not want to punish people by taking away their contraceptive tools they want you to take responsibility and follow God’s will.
Even if you can financially afford ten children does not mean you have ten children, can you emotionally afford ten children. Psalms 127-128, God blesses one that has children but he does require us to walk with him to be successful. Basically this, if you’re not willing to fear and walk with God then you just might limit your success.
France has some interesting laws that are very free when it comes to speech but very strict when speech and expression becomes treason. France allows freedom of speech to a degree but when it become treasonous it can levy a stiff penalty in jail time something America seems not to practice thus is why Slate probably just does not get it.
The issue is Islam has no clue what true freedom is, both the Islamist practicing countries have little or no freedom and the religion its self has no freedom either.
Most progressive’s lack the understanding of freedom and values as well, feeling a government entitled society is freedom they just do not get free will and rugged individualism and their value system has no value.
The French are trying to play sides, embracing European socialism and still trying to stay as a free state can be quite complicated and will yield a very unfair society.
At this point pretty much if you’re a mother or father you have to option to stay at home for a few months of bonding time without pay.
Those of you that can afford it do so, some have special insurance that pay the whole time and some don’t so they have to come back to work early seems unfair.
Should not a mom and a dad bond with their new born child why are the American people not willing to be taxed enough so all moms and dads at least the moms be paid to stay home?
You have to put yourself in the eyes of the employer; I know that evil corporation you work for that just makes tons of money off your sweat. It’s very hard on a company to have to replace somebody for a short time then give that position back.
The concept of free trade and independence is lost if a private business cannot do anything without the federal or state permission.
There is a compromise that our government could make but wont. If staying home and bonding with your child is so important and I believe it is as far as the mother is concerned then why not lower taxes.
Lower income tax maybe end the income tax as we know it, lower gas tax, lower property tax make it so a two parent family can afford for only one to work.
I know that does not work for everyone since everyone makes different pay something progressives would love to change but that’s called communism.
For the most part it would work if we lowered taxes so families could take home more money and have one parent stay home nurturing the children I know it worked for our family.
It’s easy for progressives to cry on this issue saying it’s not fair but their hypocrisy is huge on family values.
They want taxes to increase so both parents have to work, use that tax money so both can stay at home for a short while and bond then send that child to government daycare and public school.
It just seems smarter to lower taxes and have the parent stay home and bond and develop their child instead of having the tax payer do it.
Basically Bill Maher is never really quoted but for those of you that don’t know Maher has said that God is a serial killer in the Old Testament.
Both Maher and Shermer don’t back any historical data up but take Biblical text out of order it’s mainly Shermer’s lack of understanding of Old Testament Biblical history of Israel and the tribes and societies that surrounded the Jews.
When you deal with atheists that bring this kind of hate to the table it’s like talking to a brick wall. They use this double standard to hate on Biblical belief and Christianity because they are afraid of Islam.
Christians are an easy target because true Christians practice peace through Christ something Maher and Shermer conveniently don’t read in the New Testament or even mention in their rants.
The truth is Maher and Shermer hate Jews and Christians because we try and live Gods truth, no we are not perfect we make mistakes but God forgives us something that Shermer I would bet hates to admit.
In Shermer’s eyes Christians live this smug holier than thou hypocritical life and they can’t stand that. If he really knew the truth and that is I don’t always live a holy life and yes I’m a hypocrite at times but every day I ask for forgiveness and every day God forgives me
This story is near to me because I work in health care and at one time I worked in nursing/convalescent homes. I can say to you without a doubt the people that work in these nursing homes do not get paid much but the work is not that technical.
Whether you agree with this judge’s decision or not I will say this, if you really are concern for your loved ones you need to pay for their care because government insurance and that is who is paying for the majority of these people does not pay well meaning the nursing homes don’t get reimbursed well from social security or Medicare.
If you want the best care for your loved ones you’re going to have to pay out of pocket. I know that seems odd all those years of paying in to social security and it does not take care of your parents well welcome to the real world FDR was wrong and your loved ones fell for it.
The best hope at this time is for the Supreme Court to make this a states rights issue something Jeb Bush used to get out of stating whether he is either for or against the homosexual movement.
The big question then will be if a gay marriage that is legal in California will it still be good in say like Oklahoma. Hugh Hewitt made a good statement on his radio show a few days ago stating that you may have a legal conceal carry permit in Texas but that permit is not valid in New York.
No matter what happens the fall and decline of the defense of marriage is here but it’s not the end. Abortion is legal but we still fight and pray for that issue daily and this issue is no different.
End of the week in January once again and has the news calmed down well kind of kind of not. Our president made a move that radio talk show host Glen Beck feels that it shows where president Obama’s heart is on Islam.
Nor Beck and I are saying president Obama is condoning the raid and killings at Charlie Hebdo but with this philosophy one is not shocked that this type of raid and killing would happen thus why go to event that disrespected his faith or send anyone for all that matters. Regardless of the fact it was in my opinion disrespectful of the President not to go or send the Vice President after all that’s what VP’s are for.
The other new item that I have been following close has been Pope Francis embracing climate change. You may or may not think Pope Francis is a big thing because you’re not Catholic but believe me this is a big issue that affects us all. The Pope is the biggest religious spokesperson in the world and when he speaks he not only speaks for Catholics but for Christians everywhere.
It is my opinion that this is a very dangerous issue for Pope Francis to tackle. One environmentalism and climate change is basic communism in its roots and core. Pope has to know that climate change not only deals with population control but with economic destruction as well if he does not know or understand this then he is quite frankly ignorant more to come on this issue I’m sure of it.
This is of the Dalai Lama using what I think is yesterday’s news to make people think he has this wonderful geniuses of thought. Well Dalai you’re not, lots of us already knew this. We say this all the time “work work and pay your bills then die” this is nothing neither new nor of great intellect.
What gets me with these post of Dalai Lama, Gandhi or Buddha is this is nothing geniuses. God has already spoke and discussed this in this case the Dalai Lama has just restated what King Solomon wrote in Psalms 127 1-2.
What I feel on people that cling on to others like Lama, and Gandhi are just people that are afraid to look for God and his philosophy in the Bible.
They feel less threatened by men that are held in regard by the godless but feel like someone is judging them or they feel like they are becoming that religious nut down the street if they open up a Bible or read a book on Biblical studies much less try a Bible study or church. Very sad yes but I believe this to be true. I also believe this to be true as well, those of you that seek God will not be disappointed and will be fulfilled.
Finally this ducktails from the Paris incident and that is free speech, free speech is a double edge sword if you didn’t know that already. Charlie Hebdo was a pretty vulgar magazine that not only attacked Muslims but Christians alike.
To embrace free speech we also need to embrace ethics and morality to help balance it out. Yes it was wrong for those Islamic terrorist to kill because some magazine blasphemed Mohammad but it was morally wrong for the same magazine to disrespect people that are held in regard or not like they did.
Yes they have a right to do so but was it right to do so. I personally think it is wrong of them to disrespect Nuns, priest and people of prominence in other religions minus atheism. This is why I keep saying morality and ethics are so important in your life; it might even keep you from getting killed some day.
It’s Monday work week has started but like most places of work we all like to hang round the watering hole or at lunch time and kick around some of the reads of the week so here are a few I picked out from some most illogical and absurd magazines and blogs.
Bottom line energy drinks make big money and our government wants it. When you read the article you see only the progressives want to indulge in this and this is nothing but a money grab in the name of the children because you the parent can’t control your child.
The feds will pay the first 70% and Obama is hoping the rest of the 49 states will pick up the remaining 30%. This means increased taxes to pay for such a program it also takes people out of the work force while they attend collage full time.
Why anyone thinks paying for others education forcefully is a good idea is beyond me. Student loans has been a bad idea and a burden on society, maybe a volunteer program for people to donate so local communities or states can educate would be a better idea but we all know few would donate to such a program so let’s just force everyone with their taxes and in the name of education.
From the Politico “Mitt Romney Says He’s Considering a 2016 Run” Not a bad article from the progressive Politico pretty much just the facts ma’am. Why, why, why Mitt, you’re a two time looser you lost to McCain a looser among losers. Yes you were right about Obama but so was I so was every other conservative for all that matters.
Mitt you’re a moderate liberal republican and we don’t want that, conservatives don’t want that. Mitt are you wondering why the main stream media wants you to run…. Because you lose elections. Please Mitt do us a favor and doesn’t run, tell your buddy Jeb also and your fellow buddy Governor Chris to do the same.
Isquith doe not name one thing that even remotely similar to McCarthy. What this is about, Isquith is a flaming progressive that dislikes Ted Cruz so he like Matthews calls him names.
For those of you that don’t know who Joseph McCarthy is well know your history and also know McCarthy was correct on communism but just attacked his idea in a bad way. There are many other names worse than being called McCarthyism like Communist. Isquith and Matthews are Communist in thought and they know that and that is why they despise Cruz and call names with no basis.
And finally from our progressive writers atAlternet “College Professor Has a Masters…. And is Living in Poverty” This article just goes to prove you don’t have to spend the money and time for a higher education to make a nice living in the county. Alissa Quart follows a college professor that is a single mother with a disabled child and how she is in poverty yet I don’t believe making $24K a year constitute poverty.
I guess we are to feel sorry that a successful student can’t make it in the real world work force. Let see I didn’t get higher education yet my wife and I bring in a tat over 100K a year and we pay big taxes on that. We are able to own a home, two cars and two motorcycles and we pay our bills on time and the real shocker is my wife and I both work for college graduates with the same degree that our $24K professor does; choices it came to choices and how we went about making those choices work for us.
END OF THE WEEK THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL
January week two and another odd week at that, the elephant in the room is Paris and the attack on freedom of speech and freedom in general. There is more to this and tons of articles out there Brietbart.comcaptures the headlines and as the days have gone by more opinions come to the forefront.
Most everyone is outraged and for good reason, nowhere in the Christian theology is this condoned. When Jesus confronted blasphemy he never used deadly force, he drove out the blasphemous and set an example of how to respect God.
God does not command this behavior and Jesus never taught it, forgive and turn the other cheek kind of opposite of kill the offender. Another article by the Catholic league gives a response to the attack. Mind you the magazine Charlie Hebdo is an equal opportunity offender of religious blasphemy, they have offended the Catholic Church over and over again some very nasty stuff against nuns and priest.
The Catholic league’s Bill Donohue gives a somewhat odd response and some like myself can take it as though Charlie Hebdo not only should have expected this but kind of deserved this. Donohue goes on to say he has himself protested some of the defaming of the church and God but has never once felt like killing anyone and of course one would expect that answer he should have just kept his mouth shut if you ask me.
On the same note this article from the USA Today’s Anjem Choudarythat can read similar to Donahue’s but again Donahue and the Catholic church do not and will never condone violence under any circumstance where as Anjem obviously does.
This was a sad day to say the least and we must now except that in the west we not only can say good things about religion and God we can even say bad things as well but these third world countries like North Korea, middle east and some of Africa you cannot they are still in the 1st century and have no concept of individuality and freedom so seller beware.
I look at Christianity as an individual relationship that requires you to be accountable for the decisions you make. God does not condone nor does Jesus teach violence towards offenders. We do not attack them in masses but instead we pray for them in masses both the offenders and the offensive.
Next up speaker of the house John boring Boehner gets elected speaker once again they just don’t learn folks but my question is will we learn. Although some current GOP conservatives who voted for boring John state it’s what we need to do to get stuff done. Bill Bennet former secretary of education under Reagan said on his radio show a few days ago it does not matter if Boehner or Trey Gowdy is speaker with Obama in the white house its bad news all around and I’m inclined to agree.
Another article about the Pope embracing climate change, if Francis does embrace climate change it will put Catholics in a bind since he is promoting communism whether he believes it or not it’s nothing short of communism.
Hope everyone around our great nation is staying warm while we here in California enjoy the high life; don’t be jealous we pay big for this kind of weather. Enjoy the next week and stay safe friends.
