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 2012-155, Plow and Crown: Cooking the Frog, Attacks on the Poor, Cash for Clunkers, Part 2 of 2

As I said, this is about politics, not the environment.  There are people who want to control us common folk.  It drives them crazy that we are able to live life without their beneficial input.  They know what is best for us.  One of the ways that the Control Freaks of the Elites seek to suppress the masses is by taking away their mobility.  If we did not have cheap transportation we would be very limited in our options of work, education, leisure and politics.

With cheap transportation I have a larger pool of potential jobs wherever I live.  I can live in a place I want my children to go to school and work where the best pay is offered.  Life is richer with wheels.  Take them away and you limit my choices.  You control me.

One of the ways that people vote is with their feet.  Voting with your wheels gives you even more freedom.  Productive people with marketable skills are moving out of the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  Many of the illegals are also leaving.  They leave to avoid paying taxes.  They leave because the companies that supplied them with jobs have moved to states with lower taxes.  Those companies are still providing jobs, just doing it at a different place. 

Think about this:  I suggest that Henry Ford did as much for liberty in this country as the Founding Fathers.  He just did it in a different way.  They gave us the political tools, Ford gave us the ability to pursue happiness.  This truth is one of the reasons why the Elites of Education have labeled entrepreneurs like him “Robber Barons.”  They are bad, bad, bad.  After all, they improved the standard of living and made a profit doing it.  Repeat after me:  Bad.  Bad.  Bad.

The rising cost of transportation increases the cost of living across the board.  It costs more to get carrots from where they were grown to where I shop.  I also find that I am willing to pay higher prices close to home rather than drive for the better values.  It is cheaper to pay a nickle more for a can of beans than spend a dollar in gas getting to the better deal.  This makes it even more expensive to live in the long run because it reduces competition and allows prices to stay high.

One way to reduce mobility and lock people into squalor is to take the old cars off the road.  I know that they are said to pollute more.  The government wants to help.  That is not the government’s job.  The Constitution talks about liberty.  It does not talk about pollution.

Some people say the government has no business in their bedroom.  I say they have no business in my garage.

    Grace and peace.
