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 2018-008: Headlines: Knowing How to Push the Buttons of the Left

Squirrel!  “My button is bigger than his button.”  “I’m a genius.”  The media goes wild.  If it wasn’t so funny it would be monotonous. 

The reason that the media gets so upset is the same reason they are called fake:  They cannot stand the truth.  The irresistible ire of the elites, right and left, toward Donald Trump is the same.  They also have no sense of humor.

Most Americans who work for a living laughed when Trump tweeted about having a bigger button and felt a bit of reassurance when he pointed out that his worked.  Humor is sometimes based on presenting the clear truth in an unexpected way or with unexpected candor.  Trump’s response was clever, too clever for the left.

Which points out his intelligence.  You don’t rack up the success he has if you are stupid.  I have not read his Art of the Deal but I would not be surprised if one of the things he talks about is dealing with people who think they are sharper than they are.  An old bit of wisdom is that it is hard to cheat an honest man.  Why?  Because he isn’t willing to take advantage of you and most of the times you are trying to cheat you want your victim to think they are getting something for nothing.  I would suggest that it is even harder to cheat an honest, intelligent man. 

Is Trump unbalanced?   If he is then we need more vertigo in our lives.  Is he a genius?  The last people to know will be the ones who keep responding to “Squirrel!”

Some people should stay out of the woods.  Some people can’t see the forest because of the trees.  It is even sadder when they can’t see the trees because of the squirrels.

  1. Most of the left wouldn't understand a word you said.

    1. I know. That is why they are so much fun to watch.

      Grace and peace.

  2. Perhaps I can get you a copy of Art of the Deal for your next birthday or something. According to Trump, it's his second favorite book, right after the Bible.

    1. I assume he hasn't claimed to write the Bible yet, right?

      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.
