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 2017-236: Health Care Discussions: Flushing Out Rinos

One of the benefits of all the agitation over health care is that we are getting a clear view of who the Rinos are in the Senate.  Keep in mind that the Republicans ran on the repeal of Obamacare.  There are no surprises in the thought and there should be no questions in the goal. 

We can label them Rinos because they are playing politics with the countries future and their personal power.  This is a great object lesson in how the system works for those who are playing the game.  In the past when the Rinos knew that Obama would veto the bill, they voted for it.  Now that Trump is ready to sign a repeal bill, they voted against it.  This is how a famous Presidential candidate gave us the immortal sound bite,
“Kerry complicated matters with his now infamous words, ‘I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.’”
By playing these games the self centered politicians can send one set of reports to people who favor repeal and say they voted to repeal and another report to people who are against repeal and say they voted against it.  In both cases they speak accurately but do not speak truth.

So here they are courtesy of the Washington Times:
“The seven Republicans who joined Democrats in opposing repeal were Sens. Susan M. Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.”
Read it and weep Americans.  Here are seven senators who need to be opposed and removed.

Let the discussion continue.

  1. I really hope Collins gets primaried. Worst Republican in the Senate by far.

    1. Maybe you have come up with a new verb. "Being primaried". It has a certain ring. Let the primarying begin. You youngsters are so creative.

      Grace and peace.
