New Book, Revised Cover

Here I am discussing other authors when I should be promoting my latest book.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. words of Messiah

Bristol Palin . . . another 15 Minutes of Fame

I really don't like to give this bunch any more attention than they already get, but I just couldn't resist commenting on Bristol Palin's book; her memoirs . . . Imagine, a 20 year old feeling she has enough life experiences to fill a book with memoirs. I haven't read and it and don't intend to, but from the excerpts and interviews, it sounds more like "What I've Done Between the Time I Started Sleeping With Levi and Dancing with The Stars." Just for the record, lying to your parents, having a few wine coolers, does not make for a "stolen virginity" scene, which really eludes to the "R" word, but rather it sounds like Bristol, like most young women gave herself to the first guy that said the right stuff . . . And let's not forget the mention of birth control. If someone plans to retain their virtue, why be on birth control? Not to diminish her moment here, but for the record, by the time I was 20, I also had a two year old, had been a single teen mom, gotten married, became a bereaved parent, and it never once occurred to me that someone would want to read about it. I was very clearly still searching for answers. At 20, I was wise enough to know, I still lacked the wisdom needed for life. I also find it interesting that her fan base is made up of the same people that 30+ years ago thought girls like her were harlots. I couldn't help but roll my eyes at Sarah P's tweets about the book. I mean, really, does this family ever tire of attention? Looks like Bristol is following in her mom's footsteps, except Levi isn't as accommodating as Todd was when Track was on the way. Ah well . . . So Bristol is 20 with a baby, a TV show, and a book. She is indeed young, too young to being on the brink of becoming a "has been."

I Was Wrong!

When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong. I used to think mothers that relinquished custody of their children were just about the lowest life form in the country, but . . . I was wrong. Sometimes these mothers simply do not have the funds to feed the lawyers to keep the custody battle raging. Sometimes these mothers put up with hostile kids griping, complaining, and throwing fits, about wanting to live with their Disneyland Dad. Sometimes these mothers are faced with a man choosing to pay an attorney rather than his child support. Now with that being said, let's move on to the lower life forms. Lower than women that give up physical custody of their kids are the deadbeat dads that neglect their responsibility while demanding their rights. Oh, they have plenty of money for the latest fads and entertainment, but they just don't seem to be able to earn or keep track of the child support that is owed. They are also usually the ones that determine that the money wouldn't be spent properly . . . like it's their call anyway. But then, usually, these deadbeat dads were either married or at least lived with their child's mother, so all he has to do is look in the mirror to know, his ex doesn't always make the best decisions . . . But lower still than these self-aggrandizing fathers of the year, are the bottom feeding attorneys that represent them. I can't name names, because well it's not that I'm concerned about a law suit, there are just so many of these attorneys around. They have no trouble "representing" squabbling parents and depositing what could be college tuition for the children caught in the mess, into their account. At any rate, sometimes single mothers just can't afford to keep feeding the legal frenzy, and more often than not, some deadbeat loser dad can find some new woman to believe he's completely wonderful and his ex lives to make his life miserable; but there is no excuse for a bottom feeder lawyer. On that, I am not wrong.

Just What are Our Kids Learning about Free Speech?

If this young man had given credit to say a sports star or particular author, even a a politician, would he have then been free to speak? What if he'd had a "coming out" statement to make through his speech?

I can't help but wonder, every time I read something about a good Christian accepting the mandate of silence on behalf of their integrity. Wouldn't the apostles have survived if they had just stopped "teaching in the Name?" Rome was the government at the time, not to mention the crafters of crucifixion. What if Y'hshuwah had been so submissive? I've got a problem with religion being politically quieted and politically correct agendas being promoted!
I don't usually use the term "Jesus," I use Y'hshuwah, but it really draws the story and the Scripture together. It's as if that young man were dealing with the same group of guys the apostles dealt with . . .
And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. the book of Acts in the New Testament

Is This Really the Direction of Choice?

I'm reading and hearing more and more about gated communities. And the term "campus" is thrown about quite a bit. I've seen some "work compounds," I mean campuses that loom pretty ominously toward our future.
It would appear those living in the land of the free and the home of the brave seem to feel secure "gated up" and "locked down!" Do we see the potential destination of this lifestyle being embraced? I actually saw a video of some city council meeting in which the residents were resistant to the city protection agencies, that is fire and police requiring keys to all the commercial property! For safety reasons, of course! Shall we consider the logic in this at all? Suppose, just suppose, the building was on fire through business hours . . . I'm guessing the door would already be open or at least unlocked. So, let's say a fire breaks out and the business is closed. Is the fire department really going to worry about using the key as flames engulf the building? Would the business owner worry about replacing the lock and door over life and inventory? Moving right along to the police. Again, let's presume there is some criminal activity going on through business hours, again; the doors are open or unlocked. After hours, I'm going to guess, the lock is picked or something is already broken . . . This supposed move toward safety enforcement is really nothing more than an invasion of privacy. I'm thankful the people were asking questions about carrying too far and if this was simply the slippery slope into invasion of private households. Which brings us full circle back to "campuses" and gated communities. The entire concept of the use of campus now, appears to be a place of a concentration of people . . . and take the "us" out of campus and we've got a camp of concentration, as in hospitals, privatized prisons, and work places. Moving right along the gated community, that is if the powers that be at the campus let you go home. The gated communities are all high tech locking system anyway. One guy can flip a switch and unlock or lock down the whole joint, not to mention, where technological provision exists, hackers exist. So one guy could also hack the system. Truthfully, it's pretty easy to see where we're going, so let's not pretend the "oncoming train" is light at the end of the tunnel.

History, I Guess it's Open to Interpretation???

I just have to blog about Sarah P's short bus tour. She's a hoot, always! I just don't know how she comes up with so many off the wall comments. Her last one was reminiscent of when one of Rush L's faithful followers explained to me that he had explained the truth about the first Thanksgiving. It sort of boiled down to the Pilgrims supposedly saved the Indians. So, I guess according to Rush or at least his fans, it's okay that the land was stolen and the Native Americans were killed because were it not for those 6 Pilgrims that survived the journey, the Indians would have starved anyway. Now, here in America, there are really people that believe this new version. But back to Sarah. She has now explained the famous ride of Paul Revere. It was to warn the British . . . I'll paraphrase because frankly, she's hard to follow with all her "yeahs" and "ums." Apparently Paul Revere warned the British that they would not be able to take all of the guns of the revolutionaries, and the patriots were well armed. Wow! To hear Sarah explain it, you could almost envision Paul Revere being the founder of the NRA and explaining the Second Amendment years before it was written! I'm no Obama fan, but the way the other side relays history we all are familiar with, it sort of makes me wonder how accurately they grasp and explain current events! I remember Obama's major faux pas. I truly do think you should be required to know how many states there are, if you want to be President. The talk and reporting there of, is only going to get goofier through this campaign season. Of course we love it when Obama misspeaks and Sarah blathers, and Joe Biden says something stupid, but keep it in context. So, politicians, pundits, reporters and the like, "we the people" would like to hear just the facts, please.

Giving the Word

I had a most interesting week-end, that I just have to talk about. Of course, if you've been aware of any news at all, you know about the tornado in Joplin. Please keep those folks in your prayers, life is nowhere close to normal. And if you've followed this blog, you know that I had some choice words for the Westboro Baptist Clan. I called my daughter, who is an amazing networker to see how to get a large group that could stand between them and the grieving town of Joplin. Well, several people had my idea and we had quite a turn out. The WBC didn't show up, but I got to chat with someone claiming to be of the same faith. He wanted to argue with us, so we shared Scripture and he wandered off, only to attempt to rabble rouse elsewhere. I do have to share the bright spot in this entire ordeal. My daughter brought her family down to assist in the endeavor. It made this baby boomer proud to have three generations bearing signs of love. My daughter and grandkids all held signs quoting Scripture. As this cultist looking for his ilk, was talking about all of his programming, and as we shared Scripture, I couldn't help but think . . . The Westboro Baptist Clan didn't keep their word. I'm going to say, everything else they have to say is just as meaningless, but it is for sure; MEAN! I had no idea I'd ever meet a person outside the Phelps family that wanted what WBC offered, that shared in their beliefs. America is in trouble, no doubt. We have gotten a long way from G-d's plan, but rubbing salt in the wounds of the devastated is not Scriptural.
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of G-d leadeth thee to repentance? New Testament
