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 2017-399: Executive Action Required

Is it time for history to repeat itself?

Does the acronym OSS mean anything to you?  It did to the Nazis and the Japanese war lords.  It was the arm of the Untied States government that dealt with intelligence during World War II.  It ran our spies and directed our secret work of infiltrating and influencing our enemies.  It was created by FDR and “Wild Bill” Donovan.  It was needed and provided a vital role.

When the war was over it was dissolved.  Granted, its activities were simply transferred to other agencies in the government but the OSS was gone, by presidential order. 

It is time for history to repeat itself.  The CIA has become the tail wagging the dog.  It has become a power unto itself.  The role it plays is necessary but the organization is probably beyond redemption.  Dissolve it and move on.

Now about the FBI...

  1. And the FBI as well. Both are too corrupt to save and need replaced from the ground up by new organizations. And let's not forget the IRS.

    1. Maybe we could go back to the original four cabinet positions and send everyone else home.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
