My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

A Little Too Much Leg?

This is a case of too much leg or too much something. It started out as a Conservative Outrage and ended as victory for common sense. Thank goodness there is a little of that left in this world. Too make a long story short, no pun intended. It seems the cheerleader's skirts at Monroe, Ohio high school failed the longness test for the school's new dress code. Dress Code? High School? Can you say oxymoron? Not in todays world. Read the entire story at, it's short so it shouldn't take you long:

Now what I like about this story is the fact good ol' common sense prevailed and the Principal held her ground. Ok, so we goofed and made a dress code that conflicted with a long tradition. Let's all put our heads together and find a solution without attorneys, the court system, or law suits. This is really asking a lot. Well if you think it can't be done read the follow-up

I only have one question. Why when back in the 60's when Becky A, and Melanie T, and the rest of the cheer leading squad wore skits down to their knees where they able to cheer? It just seems to me the little honeys today feel the need to show a little hiney. Isn't the enthusiasm conveyed to the crowd and your team the idea, or I just an ol' fuddy duddy!

I was a cheerleader all through HS and college. We were so conservative(Christian Schools) we sewed small lead fishing weights into our skirt hems to keep them down when we did jumps.
things have changed...

To Jungle Mom,

Amen!

LOL LOL LOL I don't think our cheer leaders went quite that far. Hope you got all your papers completed and passed the Interpol examination. Hope they didn't make you hold numbers in front of you.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
