Not Shielded

We cannot hide from the world. We cannot tune it out. We must live in reality, and face the truth with openness, courage and intelligence. When we embrace the world, our lives get better.

Not Smooth

I am not smooth and can be disagreeable. Despite this, I argue that I am a diamond in the rough. Just know that I would force no one to do anything. Just realize that I wish all well, freedom, prosperity, health, happiness and God's blessing.

If I cannot convince you of that, there is no hope for you, and any chance for a relationship between us.

Psalm 73, 18-19

Blessed be the name of glorious God: "Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous deeds. And blessed forever be his florious name; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen. Amen.

Alive

Is Existence active and animated by a universal life force, an universal mind that is God? Maybe, but it is also filled with material substance.

Our Public Vocabulary

Levin warns in Liberty and Tyranny that conservatives must get control of the public vocabulary. Once we use our own vocabulary, then we get push our narrative. Then we can take make America back.

Shocked

I was very surprised to hear that Obama, in a speech in South Africa recently, asserted that the government exists to serve the individual, not the other way around.

Now, that is the stance of the constitutional conservative regarding government size, scope and mission.

Unless Obama has had a change of heart, or is quoted out of context, that is not the way he governed: a king issuing fiats to grow tyranny, grow government, and make all wards of the state.

Woodbury

AT 645am, last Tuesday, I was in the Twin Cities suburb of Woodbury, doing my weekly check of the Endo-Center emergency generator on the roof. I was half way through checking the Generac when I heard a loon calling. I thought it was a ring tone on someone's smart phone.

I looked up 40 feet above the rooftop, and I watched a lone loon flying northeast out of town and about 50 miles an hour.

I never knew the Twin Cities had nesting pairs of loons. I occasionally see them in the spring, but never in the summer. This is the first summer loon that I have seen in the Twin Cities after living here 36 years.

One never knows everything, and one learns new things everyday.
