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.

Geeesh! Can You Believe This?

We used to call ourselves "empty nesters".  Now I just call me wild and crazy guy ( a little Steve Martin) with a computer.  Surfing for articles that interest me and perhaps you.  I could write little blurbs about each article but you would want the full story so I just give the Headlines and you can go to the ones that interest you.
Sort of a. I report, you decide.

Teachers fired!  Well my goodness, that can't be true.  Can it?  Read more and why.  Clik here.

Is this possible?  More guns, less crime. Read this article stolen from NRA.COM Clik here.

Although I don't have a dog in this fight so to speak I think this article should be read.  It should not be limited to the JD Hayworth/John McCain race for Senate.  I really like the part where it refers to Senators not owning a seat.  It also has a pretty dog gone good argument about how military personal shouldn't get special treatment just because they were in service of their country. Anybody who still has a flattop haircut and is supported by Sheriff Joe would get my vote, if I lived in Arizona.  Clik here.

Into each life some rain must fall.  This morning I attended the funeral of my cousin.  He was a pretty good guy although we didn't get together as much as we would have liked we shared some common interests.  He was married to a nurse, so was I.  He loved my dad, so did I.  His passed away earlier in his life.  We both played football in high school and he would drive me to practice.  He was older and had his operator's license.  He played guard and so did I.  You get the point.  I feel bad for his wife and two boys one who is named Jacob, just like one of mine.  Of course I went alone.  

As I was riding from the funeral parlor to the cemetery I turned on the radio.  Tiger Woods was making his apology speech.  I listened.  I am only going to say from what I heard and what it sounded like was not good.  It sounded like to me he was reading it from a script.  My ever so humble opinion based on what I heard was not good for Tiger.  Perhaps if I would have seen it on the tube I may have reached a different  conclusion.  It just didn't sound, to me, sincere.  

That is all,
Pops

sorry to hear about your cousin.


Someone suggested Tiger Woods change his name to Cheetah....I"m starting to agree.

Personallly, Ididn't read or hear or watch his "apology"...but I tend to believe these things are simply PR stunts...particularly in his case where sponsors started dropping him like fresh shit once the story broke...he wants the sponsorships...he must save face publicly therefore he has someone write him out a really nice apology to his fans, family, mistresses and then he gets his sponsors back...right? cuz then it drops off the front page (I hope!).

Personally, I could care less what Tiger Woods did or didn't do, or what he said after. I think that our society is becoming way too hung up on the miss behavior and misfortunes of others. As long as Woods does not hold any kind of elected position, I could care less who he sleeps with or how many. That is strictly between him, his wife and God.

My condolences and prayers on the passing of your cousin.

I think he wrote it and read it as part of his rehab...just marking time until he returns to his golf. Personally, I do not understand why America makes heroes out of people who just happen to be good at a particular sport.

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.
