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…

I Don’t Believe Nothing

Fall has just begun. This morning I opened the window and the cool, fresh air rushed in. That was still refreshing, but as time passes and the winter chill arrives that window will stay closed, waiting for the warmth of Spring.

Tomorrow evening we will have the first presidential debate between the Democratic Party’s and the Republican Party’s nominees. Various campaigns for the presidency began in earnest in the Spring. In the heat of summer most died, but a few of the campaigns took root and matured. We will harvest one winner in Fall. In the dead of Winter, our new president will assume the mantle of power. In Winter? Why Winter? Is it then we consider our harvest of joys and regrets? Is it then we get ready for Spring?

Spring is when life begins. It is the beginning that thrills us. All is new! There is only a baby. Who knows how that baby will grow? We can only do our best to nurture our child, and yet there is a contrary view. There is the Atheist who says the baby is already perfected. Nurturing that babe will just ruin a perfect void.

Does not Summer follow Spring? If we have not grown in the Summer, if we have not tried our self in the Fall, where is the harvest that will get us through the Winter? Why would our Lord give a slothful soul the strength to prepare for Spring in eternity?

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.” (John 6:44)

There it is, boys and girls.

You hear God’s voice, you’ll come to Jesus.

You don’t hear God’s voice, you’ll post memes like this:

This is pre-school biblical scholarship.

Which isn’t surprising when atheists proudly post stuff like this:

meet-the-supreme-council201_zps5oufsk5a

I’m not kidding.

That was posted by an atheist.

…the Supreme Council of atheists aren’t potty trained.

He was making the point that atheism is simply a lack of belief in God.

He WASN’T saying atheism is the belief that there is no God.

Atheism is NOT the belief that there is no God.

Atheism is a lack…

Third Wave Feminism and the “Archaic” Notion of Biology

Here is an interesting post from what appears to be a new blog.

I liked this line.

If gender and biology have no present correspondence with one another, then the heavily politicized transgender destroys itself.

We all respect logical arguments, but we all detest having them used against us. Perhaps that is why Conservatives sometimes irk people. Don’t we all get something from our government that our government has no business giving us?

Half of our population is female, and women quite naturally want to be protected. So our leaders cater to this instinct by offering women the security of big government. Yet pride often drives women to imitate men and the male’s pride in self-sufficiency. So the same women who want the protection of big government vehemently deny that politicians abuse their instincts. They even go so far as to deny the differences between women and men.

Of course, the differences between men and women are real. When we pretend they don’t exist, instead helping us to complement each other, those differences divide us. Consider this irony. Most men admire a woman who is unashamed to be womanly, and most women desire a man who is manly.

Does being womanly mean that a woman cannot be strong? No. In fact, in some respects women tend to be stronger than men. Character matters most of all. When times are hard, a man will lean on the strength of character in his woman just as much a woman will lean on the strength of character in her man. It is because of our differences we can complement and need to support each other.

The Conservative Diaries

In a few of my college classes, which were typically dominated by female students and taught by women, we were encouraged to discuss the injustices that females are continuously being served by society. I’d often point out that if women were truly oppressed, then why are there more women in this college classroom working towards an upper level education? My professor, and the majority of my classmates, would provide various responses. One of them being, “The reason there are more women than men in this room is because of the field in which we are studying. More women tend to pursue careers in ‘helping’ professions.” I’d respond with, “Is this because women are wired differently than men? More specifically, they must have a biological predisposition to care for and nurture, ultimately being the causation of particular fields of study and career choices.” It wouldn’t be long until hands shot up accusing…

American Workforce Shrinks While Foreign Workforce Increases

I don’t necessarily have a headache with people coming to the United States prepared to work and able to speak English. What I find rather disturbing, however, is that companies have contrived to replace their work forces with foreigners and connived to make their American born workers train their lower paid replacements. There is something seriously out of whack when that keeps happening.

Another reason to voter for Donald Trump.

The decimation of the American workforce may go down in history as Barack Obama’s greatest act of treason.

As the American middle class continues to shrink, the number of foreign workers taking their jobs are on the rise courtesy of Barack Obama, the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, establishment collaborators of both parties and corporate entities all of whom have for years alleged that there is a shortage of qualified Americans to do the job and are pro comprehensive immigration reform, i.e., a dog whistle for kill American jobs now.

While at the same time perpetuating the myth that the jobs being filled, you know the ones that Americans won’t do such as picking oranges and lettuce, corporations only caring about their bottom line are laying off the American workforce in marketing, software engineering, IT consulting, outsourcing services, tech, STEM industry among others by the thousands and replacing them with…
