Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

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 2018-032: Election 2018: Vote the Memo

I have read the memo.  I don’t consider it to be a blockbuster.  It is simply more evidence to prove that Hillary Clinton, the DNC and a collection of officials on the public payroll need to be visited by Lady Justice.  The level of deceit and malfeasance is so obvious that to deny it is like the king thinking his new clothes were stylish.  We are talking naked, pot-bellied, knock-kneed, wrinkly truth.  It ain’t pretty.  Something needs to be done about it.

I believe the president is willing to do something but he needs a team behind him. 

He needs a House of Representatives that is willing to step up to the plate and start due process in its slow motion wind up.  This is where impeachment starts, and I am not talking about the president.  I am talking about partisan judges.  I am talking about department heads and assistant department heads.  This is where the unelected agencies can be brought to heel.  If nothing else it can be done by the power of the purse.  Tell the employees of EPA that they can keep their jobs as long as they want but we will no longer pay their salaries, reimburse them for expenses or buy their supplies.  We will no longer pay for a/c or heat.  Stay as long as you want but we are changing the locks and you won’t get a new key.

We need a Senate that lives up to the reputation of being beyond knee jerk reaction and proves they are still capable of action.  We need judges confirmed and legislation from the house to be endorsed. 

Scooter Libby “lied” to an FBI agent and went to jail.  Michael Flynn “lied” to the FBI and was indicted.  Kristian Saucier took a few photos for private use and went to jail.  Richard Nixon lost a few minutes of tape and was hounded out of the White House.  At the same time James Comey admitted to passing secret information to a journalist.  Hillary Clinton has committed too many crimes to review on the 154 GB available on my computer.  It is time for the people of good faith to begin to enforce the laws as written.  They don’t need to go for vengeance or push the envelope.  Just enforce the law against the rich and powerful.

And it needs to start soon so that it will be a campaign issue in 2018.  It needs to be an issue in the primary elections.  There are incumbents that need to decide they need more time with their families.  There are committee chairs that need to return to private life.  There is a country to get back on course.

Vote the suckers out.  I like the sound of that.

  1. So, how do we push this agenda along? And who will support all these crooks and criminals as they relax in their jail cells. Ah, "We the People". We can't win, it seems. Hope arises though!

    1. Voting is obvious but we should not forget the local aspect. These people start on city councils and county committees. And I would also suggest prayer but don't stop there.

      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.
