Happy Fourth of July... As we approach the celebration of the Independence of this country I decided to give a quick read to the Declaration of Independence. I was amazed at how quickly it was written and finally approved, published and distributed to the people. Now contrast the 2nd Continental Congress with our current legislative body and I wonder if we could ever do the same thing in such a short span of time even with all of the technology we have today...... ...the long answer would be Hell No!
Comprehensive Immigration Reform... President Obama keeps speaching (giving speeches and preaching) about how the GOP should sit down and come up with "comprehensive immigration reform." I was just pondering that statement and it came to me that we already have comprehensive immigration reform. It is wrapped up in these words; "The Rule of Law." We currently have system by which citizens of other nations can immigrate to this country legally. Any thing other than that is a violation of the law and should be pursued as such. No need to waste money, time and for you eco-warriors, thousands of pieces of paper on any legislation. Just enforce the laws.
BP and The Gulf Coast Communities... I returned from Pensacola, Florida this past weekend and witnessed first hand the clean up efforts of the shores of Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key Beach. Two things came to mind while watching these people toil in the 100 degree heat of the Florida Panhandle:
First, I was amazed at the amount of water bottles they were collecting (from staying hydrated) I was even more perplexed as to why none of America's Green Eco-knuckleheads were not protesting the amount of trash these people are creating just from trying to clean up the beaches as a result of their forcing legislation to protect sea turtles. You see, the state of Alabama wanted to use bigger, deeper and stronger booms to protect their 200 miles of shore line but were stymied by the Fish and Wildlife Administration. The use of these booms would cause sea turtles to get trapped and they are a protected class of people,... umm I mean animal. Humans are less important than a turtle.
Finally, If these people and BP moved at any slower rate of pace then those same sea turtles would appear to be as fast as Usain Bolt.
Clean it up BP! President Obama and congress please remove all bureaucratic obstacles out of their way. This is a national emergency.
These are just some of my random thoughts and words. Please post yours!
We have become a nation of celebrity worshipers and followers. Americans no longer want to take responsibility for their actions nor do they want to recognize how their actions may have contributed to what has happened in their lives. I know that hard times come but through faith and through the Love of Jesus Christ they will not endure.
Learn to laugh. Learn to live. But above all refuse to lose.
This nation is great because of who we are not because of government.
