The War at Home

To DD after scolding me for comparing George to Adolf: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, of course, however, I do feel as though the present administration, from the president on down has exceeded their rights under the US Constitution. I accept that there are those people who do not feel threatened by this and feel that this is the sort of country that they WANT to live in. So be it. If you feel safer and more secure and if you believe that the poor and underserved are better off today than in the past, then you have every reason to be supportive of President Bush. I guess it all depends on your perspective. Just remember that those people who proclaim to be "religious" oftentimes do things in God's name that would be unacceptable in any other context. George Bush is a Christian but just calling oneself such does not make it so. Has he demonstrated Christ in his actions? If so, please point out these examples as I would not want to criticize anyone's good works.

DD's Response:
Dear Lorraine, I thought you were supposed to send this to me on your Blog? However,that term "Religious" is not what I am about. I am a Christian which to me means that I follow Christ and His teachings as written in the Bible. Correct me if I am wrong , but I believe that you feel that it is just a book written by men and not the word of God?

As far as Pres. Bush being an example of a Christian I am not sure I know what you are getting at. My question to you would be .Would a stranger guess that you are a Christian.?Remember salvation is a gift from Jesus Christ absolutely totally free. You can not buy it,and all the good works in the world does not guarantee it. It is free from The Man who died on that cross for you and me.

In other words, George Bush isn't any different than us in that we all try to do our best and I am sure that he does good works and contributes to charities and is nice to his wife and children as you are to yours. As far as this war enters into it no I certainly do not agree with some of the things he is doing or has done, but let's face it ,we do not have at our disposal all the information we would need to make such a decision. It sounds as if some of you liberals would like to have a vote on everything that goes on and run the country yourselves as long as the White House has Conservatives in it.....or whatever you call George Bush's party.
Or I know you would all rather forget about terrorism and have your President enjoying Sexual Favors in our Oval Office and the hell with the country since this is only about sex and we don't have to worry about the Sadams and the Osama's. In fact why don't we invite them all to the oval office for BJ's. and maybe it will there they will establish peace.

Why is it that anytime I read the words "poor and underserved" I hear poor and undeserved? Should there be commas in there somewhere? If so, please show me the way.

I don't like to tell people what books to read, so I won't. I just finished reading a book titled "Ishmael." Its offers answers to some of your questions. Its only 250 pages or so in length. It begins with.....

"Without Man, will there be hope for Gorilla?"

Its not about evolution.

I like "The Voice of Reason". I would like to start a new political party, a Progressive Democrat, sort of thing. Reasonable limits on welfare programs, abortion, drug laws etc. You can be a the helm. Our current two party system is like a black and white television in a technicolor world. I am frustrated with everything being either black or white-I want representation that recognizes gray. You are the man/woman for the job.
