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 2012-210, Headlines: The Scramble to Buy Votes

It continues.  According to an article I was reading both parties are trying to buy the votes of Iowa by passing out more of your money.  They bought the votes a few years ago with subsidies for ethanol production, now they want to subsidize windmills.  Both will produce energy but they consume more resources than they put out.  They are endless holes of deficit spending, buying votes at your expense.

When will this stop?  It is possible that someday solar and wind power may actually be viable sources of power.  If the government keeps trying to direct development it will take a lot longer than if they will get out of the way and let supply and demand do its thing.  The kind of innovation that will produce durable storage batteries, efficient solar panels and workable wind generators will not come because a congressional committee came up with some specs that are designed to keep another set of votes bought.  It will happen because some entrepreneur risked his money and beat his brain to come up with something that people will actually pay for.

Let’s get back to freedom instead of bribery.

November is coming.  Vote the (blood) suckers out.
