You be the judge.
Today’s cult of personality politics was driving me nuts. So instead of yelling at the television a blog was born.
This blog is named after an incredible comment by Barack Obama:
“… whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.” Presidential Candidate Barack Obama at Saddleback Church.
That quote put me over the edge. I just cannot believe Barack Obama has not thought about these issues as a confessed Christian believer. Naturally, he has quite a firm stand on this issue. He just chooses to answer questions when it suits him.
So, every time I type it’s therapy. A deep breath.
So what’s my aim? Sanity. Peace. Hope. Change. Cliches. Digital kryptonite?
I want to illuminate the stories I find on the internet to help my friends (old and soon-to-be) understand why I support John McCain for president.
About Me? About Us? About the Group?
Here are a few tidbits…
- Worked at the White House (not Waffle), yes, THE WHITE HOUSE, for a few years in a non-political position during the “I feel your pain” administration.
- Played golf with Michael Jordan
- Named after the senior senator from Massachusetts
- Enjoyed two whole games of the World Series with my wife! She’s awesome. My team won!
- I have flown in a black helicopter, been on Air Force One, and various other military craft.
- Ran a couple of marathons
- Have problems with ending sentences in prepositions. Not too sure about the dangling participle.
- I’m a Christian. I believe Jesus Christ is who the Bible says He is. It’s true. Really. Water to wine, walking on water, healing the dead- Jesus was here and did all of those things. He died and rose from the dead. Amazing, don’t you think?
- That also means I’m a born-again hypocrite. We all are. I’m a jerk, I cut off people in traffic, kick my dog when no one is looking, say bad things sometimes. On really special occasions I can really screw things up. We need Christ. Please see bullet above and the Gospel According to John.
