Should I Take Next Wednesday Off?

October 30th, 2009 Viewed 1758 times

barak_obamaWith the possibility of this country being thrown into the control of a Liberal President, a supermajority in the Senate and a majority in the house of Democrats, should I stay up for this (hopefully) once in a lifetime event, or should I plan to take the day after off so I can follow it all?

It’s a good question.  Elections don’t happen all that often, and even Sen. Obama himself is suggesting we take election day off.  ‘Course they don’t want me to do it, or anyone that doesn’t agree with them.  Not really, even if they say that they do.

What do you think?  Is this election over?  Are you going to vote?  And if so, are you going to support a main-line candidate?

Obama Wins Election

Contrary to what you’re lead to believe, the election of a President is not decided on election night by news anchors with big screens contacting election headquarters.  In fact, President-Elect Obama just won the election January 8, 2009.  The vote was 365 to 173 in favor of Pres-Elect Obama over Sen. McCain.

Have I finally run out of things to say on Election 2008?

Though Rahm Emmanuel seems to be quite the character, I didn’t expect Pres.-Elect Obama to pick new people—I expected the same old leftists.  Then again, I don’t know that Chief of Staff are really that out in the open, I mean, I’m not sure I can recall the current Chief of Staff?

Today I received an interesting phone call from my wife.  During it, she told me that one of her friends voted for Pres.-Elect Obama, although professing Christ.

During the run-up to the election, many of us were baffled on how this could be the case.  Surely anyone that was pro-life could not vote for someone that was ok with infants that were born alive being killed—and that was just the beginning of our problems with the Senator from Illinois.

Joe the Plumber

Names can be funny things.  In my Junior year at Bob Jones University I took History of Civilization and one of the fun parts was hearing the different appellations that were given to various people based on characteristics.

People like Louis VI the Fat, Charles the Great, Pippin the Short now make way for Joe the Plumber and Peggy the Moocher and Belinda the Jeweler.

And here I thought we all have last names to make identifying us easier!

So, in honor of this new trend, please comment below as to what your name would be in this new style (either in the name field of the comment box or in the text itself) and let me know what you think of this new trend!

Graciousness Does Not Equal Agreement

November 6th, 2008 Viewed 2422 times

profile3_obamaThe office of President of the United States demands a good deal of respect.  The occupant thereof deserves respect as well.  Part of the problem of the last few years has been that there has been little to no respect for the office or its current holder.

That being said, we have a Democratic Republic, not a Monarchy.  President-Elect Obama will not be king, but President.  And in this country is not wrong to state our disagreements with his policies or actions as long as it is done in a respectful way.

The Pro-Abortionists Know

Pro-Life causes took a hard hit last night.  First, the selection of Sen. Obama means that we will have a President with a 100% approval rating from NARAL.  There were also two Pro-Life Constitutional Amendments on the ballot—in Colorado and South Dakota—that were intended to challenge Roe v. Wade.

In some small way it’s good that they didn’t pass.  You would want them to pass when you have a good chance of getting it to the high court, and I’m not sure if there will be a good one in an Obama Administration.

However, buried in the AP article on all of these measures is an interesting bit of news:

Really? Obama is Our President?

If you believe half the things that you read on the net—at least in places that I read, you’d believe that this article (Bush: ‘Can I Stop Being President Now?’)from the Onion was true!

I don’t know how many times I’ve read someone saying that Sen. Obama is our President now, emphasis on ours, etc.  The fact is, he’s not President until he’s sworn in January 20, 2009.  This isn’t sour grapes, this is a statement of fact!

Watching Fox News call both Ohio and Pennsylvania for Sen. Obama, I could remain optimistic that the Exit Polling could be wrong.  I mean, we heard all day that people were thinking of lying to the Exit Pollsters to make the media look back, and we heard that it won’t be over until the votes are counted.

But now the votes are counting, and it does indeed appear to be exactly what they were saying—that our country has decided to give control of power to the Democrats.
