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 2015-371: Trickle Down Attitude

Too often we get sidetracked by labels and miss the bigger picture.

Don’t get me wrong.  I think labels are helpful.  When someone tells me they are a teetotaler, I know where they are coming from.  Political labels help at times but not on the big picture.

I am a Republican.  The enemy is not the Democrats.  Labels don’t help identify the big problem.  The enemy can be found in both parties.  They are well connected elites who are trying to manipulate our society to keep themselves in power and deny the opportunity for success to others.  These elites are totally bipartisan.  They cooperate.  Their goal is to take away our liberty because liberty is dangerous, especially to elites.

Elites are not always wealthy party bosses or corporate executives.  Most of the liberty that we lose is taken away by low level flunkies that are in a position to make us jump through hoops just for the personal sense of power.  They can be a clerk at the DMV.  I remember the last time I had to renew my driver’s license.  There was a minor issue that needed to be resolved in the paperwork.  The lady behind the counter could not care less.  She had her nails to do.  It was okay with her if I had to take another day off from work to stand in line for a few seconds of time.  I was blessed because when she was looking the other way the guy at the next window said, “Come straight to me when you come back and we will get it taken care of.”  One was an elitist, the other was a common American.

Or how about those crossing guards.  We live across from a middle school and even though there is a signal we have two crossing guards to help these children across the street.  They stand in the middle until every child is on the curb.  They hold their sign up until they have reached the curb.  You better not mess with them.  They are elitists.  They have power and you don’t.

Vote the suckers out.  Vote against anyone who is in favor of more government control or regulation.  Elections matter and even if you don’t believe in trickle down economics you should believe in trickle down attitude.
