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 2012-272, Should-a-Beens: Paying the National Debt

I keep hearing about how our grandchildren are going to pay off the national debt built up by George Bush and Barak Obama.  It occurred to me the other day, I can live with that.  After all, it was the young people who elected Obama.  They wanted Hope and Change.  They are certainly getting that.  They are the ones who have borrowed the money and run up the bills and have their hands out, so let them pay if off and be unemployed. 

There is a good chance I will be dead before Social Security runs out or Medicare goes bankrupt.  My kids currently have good jobs and I am still working with benefits.  It may get tight for me but I will probably be okay.  I do not say that in blind selfishness.  I am willing to redo Social Security and such.  I am willing to make sacrifices.  I know it can’t go on forever.  As a teacher I never vote for more money for education.  I am willing to go for reform but it will take people of all walks of life sitting down, having an open discussion and seeking for a solution that will be best for everyone not just to big campaign contributors. 

When you are ready to talk, let me know.  I will meet you at the table or vote for someone who will represent me.  I will not give you a dollar when you are standing in front of the “Help Wanted” sign at the fast food joint.  I will not feel friendly when you are in front of me at the grocery store with your EBT card getting cash back.

I am quite willing to let you get the government you deserve.
