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 2023-134: Should-a-Beens: Walls

I have a suggestion for the next congressional bill to raise the debt ceiling.  Walls.

I don’t mean walls on the borders.  What I am looking for is walls around any city over a certain size, say 500,000.  I am rigid on the walls but willing to adjust the number down.

I think that they could sneak it into the small print when the bill is in the resolution process, or does it not do that for budgets?  It would be a way of playing the game by their rules, pass the bill to find out what is in it.

Construction should start immediately, starting with the city which meets a formula of population and geographic size.  The more condensed, the higher on the list.  It would also require funding for another government police force on the lines of TSA.  It could be paid for by a graduated tax like we all pay.  The bigger the city, the higher the tax, with small towns getting a welfare subsidy paid for out of the pockets of the megopolices.  

It is an idea whose time has come.
