Watch Your Language!

I was thinking about writing a post of this sort, but this one is well done. I would have mentioned the strangeness of a ten-year old video being an October surprise, but irtfyblog found a more interesting angle. So it is my pleasure to pass it on.

Of course, I will say the obligatory thing. I don’t approve of what Donald Trump said. No excuse for such behavior, but it is easy to say things we should not. Even if we are careful of bad words and don’t engage in locker room talk, we all fail to tame our tongues somehow. Thus, when Trump lost control of his tongue, he just said what the men he was with wanted to hear.

A bunch of guys talking among themselves will often say stupid things about the opposite sex. That includes many of our posturing elected representatives. As irtfyblog observes, women have the same problem.

So why is this post significant? We have binary choice. Trump deserves to have his mouth washed out with soap. The Clinton’s belong in prison. So who should we vote for? Trump or H. Clinton? The guy with the dirty mouth or the lady who prefers a “good” lie over the simple, honest truth?

If you are a woman, do you really want the first female president to be someone you know we cannot trust? Do you really want to vote for someone who should be in prison? Is the competent leader with a foul mouth that big of a problem?

If you are a man, are you going to disqualify the jerk you would not let near your wife and daughters because of his foul mouth or the woman who thinks selling out the future of our country is just the way politics is made profitable?

It not a good choice, but it ought to be an obvious choice.

I Refuse To Follow Your Blog


The other day I over heard a few women in my workplace talking about a guy they were attracted to.  

Now, pathetically, none of them were talking about me, but they were talking about a well-known actor who they consider to be a “royal hottie“.  About which, one of the women shockingly had the nerve to say that she would…and I quote“spread her legs for that man in a minute.”  To which, the other women in the room heartily concurred and went on to explain what ELSE they would let him do to them…  


Consequently, what I found to be royally pathetic was that directly after their conversation they began to rail on Donald Trump for the lewd and disgraceful comments he made toward women in a recently released video.  


I have watched and listened to the video that was released…

She didn’t know jack…

Why? I got a good laugh out it, and I wanted to share.

The Lions Den

Ok you may have heard that Jack and Jill went up the hill, but hold the fort. First, they were trespassing, but that’s another story, absentminded doncha know. Too much manure in the air.

True Jill’s sister was leaning toward gender neutral, and what a mess that was………Jack’s brother was a local magistrate and said many times people act like animals, as he heard it all………Jill’s father owned a sheet metal factory (he made buckets), Jack’s mom stayed at home but worked like 30 men. Jack was a logger.

At the top of the hill he popped the question: Why don’t you believe in God? ‘Why Jack, because I am not a moron.’ To which Jack went on a rather lengthy discourse using common sense, reason, scripture, nature, arithmetic, but most of all, he pointed out to Jill that the whitetail deer pops out her babies like watermelons, while Jill’s mother…

Selfie Culture !

Have you ever taken a selfie? Why?

Have you ever wondered why the candidates we have running for public office seem inordinately self-obsessed and corrupt? To learn the answer, we just have to consider why we took that selfie and who is voting for those candidates for public office.

Was it always this way? To some extent it was. Nevertheless, greedy, prideful people could not have created this nation. At one time Americans must have been more willing to consider each others welfare. Even when I was a child, we had a president who could utter these words.

The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. — John F. Kennedy

Now more than ever before our leaders compete for office with the most absurd promises. That’s because we see our country as our government, and we see our government as all about what it can do for us. And so it is we elect people who see their job as all about what our government can do for them.

In a Selfie Culture, the big picture is “ME”.


What does the Bible say that would apply to selfies?

The term selfie, which was the Oxford Dictionary’s 2013 word of the year, refers to a photo taken of oneself, usually with a camera phone, and posted on a social media site. Selfies can range from silly “duck-faced” snapshots to pornographic videos. A “selfie culture” is one in which people take a lot of selfies, of course. But, for the purposes of this article, we will further define a selfie culture as a widespread obsession with self-expression, self-esteem, and self-promotion, evidenced by the proliferation of self-portraits on social media. The Bible was written before the advent of camera phones, but God’s Word still has plenty to say about one’s view of self.

While there is nothing inherently wrong with taking a selfie and sharing it with others, selfie culture, as defined above, is steeped in narcissism. Need yourself…

Mr. Palmer

I am not a golf fan. Never pay much attention to sports. Knew of Arnold Palmer, but not much about him. I just got the impression of a man people respected.

So why the reblog? On the way home from a meeting this evening, I heard Mark Levin mention the death of Mr. Palmer. All Mr. Levin could say is that Arnold Palmer’s death got to him, but he had trouble expressing why, an odd thing for a man who makes his living talking.

ColorStorm, I think, put into words what Levin felt about Mr. Palmer.

We all have a God sized hole that only God can fill, but because we are made in God’s image a good and respectable person can fill that hole a little bit. Therefore, when such a person dies, we feel a bit more empty. That emptiness is important to note. That’s how we know that person made a real difference in us, that they brought us closer to God.

The Lions Den

Some of you may have never heard of Arnold Palmer, some may not even care even though hearing of him, but he died yesterday at the ripe age of 87. The earth will cry for such a vacancy. Why? Because he played golf? Because an airport was named after him? Because he was a legend in his field? Because he owned car dealerships? Because he had his own brand of iced tea? Well yes, come to think of it.

Arnold Palmer was a good man. Period. And the good things that flowed from his life were testament to the old adage: in all labor there is profit, but more importantly, a good name is far better than rubies.

He died with his good name being intact. There were no Enquirer  shamings, he was not the goat for sports fodder, he was not a clown when interviewed, and he spoke well…
