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 2014-304: Fear Not, the Republicans Are Coming

This is a word of encouragement to all you Democrats out there.

Last time the Republicans were in charge of the legislature they acted like kids loose in a candy store.  They abandoned all of the principles they espoused and began to spend like drunken sailors.  In short they acted just like Democrats.  We are already starting to see that.  The leadership in the House has decided to join hands with the President and give him all the money he wants to open the borders and fund Obamacare.  It is his dream come true. 

Way to go guys.  Last time we had frantic passage of bills was when the Republicans were going to take over the House and the Democrats pushed through Obamacare without reading the bill.  Now the Republicans have done what the Democrats could not get done and funded it.

I would like to say that this will change when the new crop of Republicans change the mix in January, but don’t count on it.  Democrats should never have any fear of a Republican takeover.  Why?  Because Republicans believe what they read in the left wing press and have a deep desire to be loved.  I can go back to the days of Ronald Reagan and the cooperation he gave to the Democrats.  They lied.  They lied to both George Bush’s and they are lying today.  And the Republicans keep believing them.

I keep hoping that those who were elected this time will make a difference but I am not sure there are enough of them.  The leadership still wants to be loved and will join the Democrats to thwart the will of the people.  They will make the people so mad that in two years the Dems will be back. 

The battle continues.  Start thinking about it now for 2016:  Vote the suckers out.  When in doubt it means that they have not been clear enough.  Vote “No.”

  1. Yep, I'm pretty disgusted with their performance, too.

      Grace and peace.
