Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2011-70, On the Street: Polling places staffing

A few days ago I was walking during the day instead of at night and I saw a lady who usually worked at the place I vote.  None of the regular faces were on the job last time.  I asked her where everyone went.  She said that in the last election, none of the regular people were called to work.  They brought in a whole new group.  She said she though they were looking for more bi-lingual people.

I think they were looking for more Democrats.  I have no reason to think that there were any irregularities at my polling place.  I saw nothing out of order, but all of the people who would recognize regular voters were gone.  In that election, California was the only state to buck the national trend.  The Democrats took all the statewide offices and even picked up a seat in the state assembly.  Is there a correlation? 

How does a political party gain power in a state that is failing because of their policies? 

I would suggest that if conservative and Republicans want to have a chance at keeping the republic then something needs to be done about voter fraud and the integrity of our elections.  In the entire history of our country there have been issues.  This is nothing new, but if we don’t want to get totally thrown under the bus we better check the drivers.
