All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Everything is spinning out of control

The Secret Service has one job in the White House-to protect the president. How does this woman get inside the gate let alone stand inches away from the President while he is speaking? And then when the TV station goes to her house to get a response to this story they find she is "on vacation." She has been on unemployment for so long her benefits are about to expire so I have to ask-on vacation from what? How do you define vacation when you are not doing anything to take a vacation from? You watch Judge Judy instead of Oprah? How does that work?
One other thing. The President mentioned in his remarks that this lady was in a position where she was going to have to go to her father for financial help. Why is this a bad thing? Isn't helping one another in times of crises one of the prime functions of families? A father helping his daughter out when she is in financial difficulty-what a concept!
