Brette Favre is still a great QB

Ah yes. Good ol football. A sports Op-Ed from my old home town Superior Wisconsin's Superior Evening Telegram.

Seperation of Church and State is a coined phrase

No where in the constitution is this often quoted statement, however what the constitution does say is that the "government shall make no law", concerning religion.

What the courts have declared and what the intellectual community accepts as fact simply does not comply with this simple precept, and also goes against the judicial systems desire to legislate from the bench.

The reason I bring this up is because I agree with the rest of this article explaining the differences in party attitude we have here in the U.S.. From Daily Kos: State of the Nation.

I believe that the liberal political perspective focuses its application of values in the public arena, eschewing the impulse to dictate how people should live their private lives and what their personal moral codes should be.

Gets a link from it is what it is and check out his link to the smoking gun on a no nookey ruling from a Texas judge.

Y'all got to get something straight.

God is definitely in control of me on account of I really would like to use some old fashioned blue collar language.

You see I am, and maybe have to always be, blue collar. My dad was blue collar and even more a sailor. He spoke like a sailor. Very colorfully....if you like blue and your ears would definitely turn blue. The air was blue. Even the yellow snow turned blue in my dads presence.

I believe that many things cannot be repaired without the use of a few carefully chosen words, people included. Yes I fix people right up with those special words.

Man the color just comes right out in their cheeks. If you think someone is a little pale some word medicine pinks them right up.

It is such a lovely thing to know that you can help people feel more alive than they did a minute ago. They become downright vigorous. Why some have even challenged me to a race, which I must say to date I haven't lost yet, chuckle.

Well all in all I thought I would cheer things up today.

Y'all have a @#$%%^&*@@#%$% nice day.

Holy Crap (literally)

Get a load of this coming out of the catholic Church from Times on Line.

Catholic Church no longer swears by truth of the Bible
By Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent

THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true.
The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect total accuracy from the Bible.

Oh Catholics are not going to want to read what I have to say now so you might just want to go somewhere else and not read the rest of this.

If the Catholic Upper crust and Cream do not believe that the whole bible is true then what are you believing in. Repent of thy heresy or crumble as a church. With out the 'full faith' in the written word, that is if it is not all true then none of it is and if the leadership doesn't believe it then they won't be able to teach it to the rest of their congregations and will gravitate away from the vine that is Jesus Christ. A branch that does not dwell in the vine will wither and die.

There is also this as a final note:

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

It would have been better for the Catholic leadership to let sleeping curses lie.

Blogger growth

About ten years ago I was talking to Al my brother about some old times and I was telling him that even though I was benching nie unto 300 lbs I was a little low in the ego dept. due to the fact that most of the people around me were somewhat stronger. He gave me a little boost by telling me when he and Johnnie would be sitting behind me in church and I would get one of those urges to yawn and stretch( I don,t know why I had to do that in church)that my bicepts were rather impressive.

About 1 1/2 years ago Al sent me an e-mail giving me the url to his web site. I took the bate and clicked a link and now.........
Well it seems only yesterday I started to blog and have scratched my way up from maybe 1 read a day to 20 or so.
I still am somewhat insecure due to the fact that many of the people that have linked to my site are just much stronger. God bless anyway and I am tickled over it.

And the strategy for this Supreme Court nominee should also be

Same as the last one; John Roberts, against what I would normally say or like. Wheel and deal, twist arms, compromise, and generally do what ever it takes to get this nominee confirmed.

God is in control

Isa 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

Isa 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

Jer 10:13 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

Amo 4:13 For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just1 and on the unjust.

Jesus says that God is the Causer of rain and the old testament time and time again states that God is the maker of wind.

For christians who do not believe that Katrina is an act of God think yet again. For he is. Believe or don't. Nuff said.

What's happening to me?

I just read another site unholy.

Fixer Uppers

Omni has a post with some advice:When you're getting to know someone, or contemplating doing so, take an objective look at what they say, and ask yourself honestly, "Is this normal, healthy behavior?" If the answer is "no," resist the urge to try to cheer them up, or be their therapist, or, worst of all, invest emotion in them by being their friend; the only thing you can do for people who are screwed up is let them know that they have a problem, make clear what the problem is (or how else can they see it and fix it?) and then back away from them... they'll NEVER try to sort themselves out if they don't hear the truth, or if they keep getting attention from the well-meaning.

She is very right about not trying to fix someone though I personally try to say something positive about the individual to the individual just to let them know that they have something to build on, that is of course if they haven't shown their butt to me in which case I like to get out the sand paper and rub their hind ends with it. I mean after all if they are going to irritate me I might as well do the same for them(the golden rule).

I do not try to say things as nice as Omni-not out of meanness but because I purposely shape my words to be like unto a sword. If a person has a demon it usually gets it mad and out it comes. The only way to set a demon straight is to get it out in the open and hence the need for the sword. Those evil things gotta see it and know that their existence is in jeopardy if they get rude or do something wicked.

Back to the flesh; Of course in reading an article like this a person who professes to be into self improvement such as I must see if it applies to oneself; both in toto or in some parts, but then there is no such thing as the proverbially round peg for that round hole. Some of it does apply to me but like Alanis Morrisette sang, "Some good advice that I just can't take,".

I got to be my self
