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 2012-124, Green Pieces: Advance to Water Works

You are, or you should be, aware that the environmentalists have pushed through regulations that limit the amount of water your shower head can put out.  It has been in place for years so you may have forgotten what the old showers were like.  Recently in a motel I experienced a clever way around this:  Dual shower heads. 

It did not look like it was home made.  You might be able to Google it and buy it on Amazon, although it is probably illegal in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  A tube ran horizontally across and had a shower head at each end, side by side like dual headlights.  It put out twice the amount of the limiters and thus began to approach an old fashioned shower.  A little creativity found a way around the regulations of the  Control Freaks of the Elites.

They don’t seem to get it.  They cut down the amount of water per flush, so we flush three times.  They give us lower watt bulbs, so we turn on two lamps.  They put in thermostats that say it is cool enough so we target heat lamps on the thermostat.  They limit the water flow so we put on two heads.  The creativity of the masses will always trump the pseudo-cleverness of the Control Freaks of the Elites.

Where will this lead?  The place it always leads the Regulators.  It will lead to a need for more laws.  I would suggest that all homeowners be required to fit regulators 12 inches up the pipe that leads to the shower.  Perhaps toilets could have timers that only allow them to be flushed once every half hour.  The possibilities are endless. 

There will always be ways around, but why should we be forced to use our creativity to find ways to dodge our wannabe masters when we could be building better mousetraps instead and increasing the wealth of the nation?  I guess that would make everyone happy and people might see a way out of the welfare trap.  And they might vote different. 

We can’t have that.

Vote the suckers out while you still can.
