For not being a parent, you certainly have a great deal of insight into parenthood. I believe that, much like you state, it gives us a taste of God's perspective toward His children. Thank you for a thought-provoking article.

Throw the Rascals Out?: Part II

Somebody has to vote for term limits though... Even if a million dollars or more is an incentive for someone to only serve one term, weighed against a lifetime of perks for them and their family, I'm betting no one takes the million bucks...

During the last election, we had one of the good guys run for a seat in the House. He is a true conservative, has good morals, values, and ideas, had built an extremely successful business, thus had deep pockets, yet he lost because the RNC threw their hat and $ behind the incumbent who is entrenched in the Beltway atmosphere. He won't run again because his dealings with the RNC (who sold a flat-out lie about him) disgusted him. Even if we did pay $1M per year or term, I think we lose a lot of good potential candidates because the establishment politicians and their ilk know how to game the board to push those most likely to change the culture out of the way.

Is College Worth The Cost?

PrayerPoseMom Wrote: Oct 28, 2013 9:19 AM
I think that if colleges actually taught the things required by the degree, rather than perpetuating various political agendas, and the costs were reasonable (almost 1000% cost increases in the last 30 years), it might be of value. But with all these factors, I don't think it is any longer. The cache that used to come with a degree has been undermined by political correctness and students no longer learn the skills that are needed in the marketplace. Case in point: my son graduated with a business degree last year (thankfully he found employment) but racked up $20K in student debt and had to slog through required classes like "Diversity in the Workplace - How Minorities are of Value," and "Sports Ethics." How does that bloody apply to accounting, marketing and financial principles? I never thought that would question whether or not college was a good thing; now I wonder...
*everyone that believes in serving God and their country walks away...
My son leaves for BMT-AF next Monday. His thoughts are that God-fearing Americans still make up the majority of the military. Maybe not the brass, but the backbone is still solid and strong. If everyone that believes in serving God and their country, who will defend us? Too late for him to back out now... Just interested in your thoughts and why...

What Has Ryan Wrought?

If the GOP is willing to fund the AFA after a couple weeks of holding their ground, it sure sounds as if they're caving to me.
I fail to see how the Republicans are blocking the way; they continue to send bills to the Democrat-controlled Senate to fund every part of the government, except Obamacare, which the majority of their constituents don't like or want. This is well within their constitutional charge to not fund.

I'm so sorry for your loss. This was a beautiful tribute and you were blessed to have such a mom!
The Republicans should note that the majority of the population STILL is not in favor of Obamacare. In fact, citizens of Massachusets once elected a Republican to defeat Obamacare from becoming law. Unfortunately, the Beltway elite think common Americans are too dumb to understand that standing up for your principles and your constituents is always the right thing to do. I will vote against every incumbent in my state this next election season should they vote to fund this dreadful legislation.
