Elections do have their consequences. We can thank those Republicans and conservatives who held back their vote or voted for some third-party candidate who could never ever possibly won a presidential victory in 2008 and 2012 for the current federal liberal progressives having their way with the public. I will never understand the notion of being so angry with your political party to the point of not caring if your angry actions help to give victory to the opposing political party who continues to make changes that are screwing up the country.
How do you feel about transgender restrooms? I know I am very uncomfortable with them. The Obama administration feds are Forcing public schools to adopt ‘nondiscrimination’ for transgender teachers and students, which includes making school restrooms transgender. Before the word, transgender ever became apart of anyone’s vocabulary, I took a class on one of Temple University’s campuses. The 2 story building of my class had one restroom with several stalls for everyone. I went to use it and I walked in on a male coming out of a stall. I walked back out and found another classroom building with male and female restrooms.
When I worked in the childcare classroom, sometimes while the custodian cleaned one of the boys’ or girl’s restroom, we would designate stalls for the little preschool girls and boys to use in the other restroom. Once one parent saw this going on, the childcare center then received a barrage of complaints. Taking preschoolers to the restroom that way stopped. How do you feel about a boy whose parents let him live as a girl going into a restroom with your daughter? How do you feel as an adult going to use a restroom with a big clunky male living as female or a female appearing as a male?
Happy Resurrection Day to All
1 Corinthians 15:3-8
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
The Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave and defeated death. Through Him we have everlasting life after our time is up as mortal human beings. If you are not sure you will have everlasting life, see God’s Plan for Salvation.
Oh gracious loving heavenly Father, please help people to see their need for your precious Son, to understand what He did for them and that He conquered death and lives today. Help them to realize Mohamed, Confucius and others that people worship are dead, but not your precious Son, the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
A Facebook friend asked who were the black men in the photo. I was the first to respond. I recognized the first on the left, Charles Evers right away. He went on to be a mayor in Mississippi and go Republican. He was also the brother of the late civil rights activist, Medgar Evers. The other two black men in the 1980 photo with then Republican presidential candidate, Ronald Reagan are civil rights activists/leaders were Hosea Williams and Rev. Ralph Abernathy. These men endorsed Ronald Reagan for President. In my mind, I only remember Rev. Abernathy endorsing Pres. Reagan. I also remember my thinking that something was wrong with Rev. Abernathy for endorsing a Republican presidential candidate.
I tried to listen to and like Ronald Reagan as President, but back then, I was too engulfed in group black think. That had me viewing Pres. Reagan through the ‘Democrats only for blacks’ tunnel vision. So yes back then, I did mistake Ronald Reagan’s belief in keeping government out of the average American’s life as a cover for doing nothing about racial injustice. My thinking was also shaped by my Democrat voting parents and the legislative branch of government passing laws against segregation and against denying some legal citizens of color the right to vote in the 60s during my junior high years. Times grew different and finally so did my thinking.
Here are some questions from the citizenship test that foreign nationals must take to become naturalized citizens of this country. Fox News’ Jesse Watters ask some citizens in my birth city, Philadelphia, PA a few of the questions from the citizenship test. One person did answer correctly. Can you?
I remember when career politicians had a large admiration society. I remember the Kennedy’s getting high praise for devoting their lives to public service and elective office, because they did not have work for a living due to the family wealth. No so these days. Old career politicians do not seem to be able to relate to the every day working voters who put them into office. It eventually becomes what is best for them over their constituents. And then, many of us do not care, do not keep up with how they are serving us and continue to extend their years in office through our votes.
I feel it is time for term limits for elected officials in both Houses of Congress. Maybe the term limits should be around 5 terms/10 years for the House and 3 terms/18 years for the Senate. Whoever is Speaker of the House could only hold that position for 4 years and the Senate Majority Leader position would only be for 1 term. Here are some elected officials who are still in office, but their time came and went.
Rep. Henry Waxman on the bottom row far right is retiring after being a Congressman since 1975. He needs to go and so do the rest pictured, both Democrat and Republican.
