I have always assumed that President Obama would build a library. That seems to be what ex-presidents do. And he started out that way but according to the Washington Free Beacon he has had a change of plans. Now instead of a presidential library he is going to build a “Presidential Center”. It will “saddle local taxpayers with an estimated $100 million tab, and commandeer large swaths of beloved historic public parks for private development.”
In case you have not noticed, I can’t stand Obama. It takes a special kind of misfit to replace Jimmy Carter at the bottom of the pile while claiming his awesomeness would stop the oceans from rising. I would begrudge him a library. It is what is done and although I have a low opinion of him he was still the president of the United States. Maybe it is just my bias but “Presidential Center” sounds like it is either a center for all presidents or the location frequented by the serving president. The title seems a bit narcissistic.
It is equally humorous that the liberal professors are protesting the way he is taking over a large area of Chicago that had been designated as historic. The article was a big vague on why it was historic but keep in mind that Chicago also thinks that banning guns has made the city a safe place to live.
Cartoons and posters have expressed the wish that Hillary would just go away. I have the same feeling about Obama.
At least I am consistent.

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.
