In other words, no matter what's going on or how tempted I am to despair and give up, the Lord's compassion and love is always the same, new every morning, always there. What a great promise!
***Geez, I'm getting tired of this stuff: Bruce Levenson will sell Atlanta Hawks after self revealing racist email. No doubt he was about to be "outed" by our ever-offended friends on the Left. Okay, so he wrote a racist email. Before the Left went even more berserk, one's personal opinions didn't have to ruin one's life, no matter how dumb the opinion. It's okay for Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to trash white people, but don't you dare let it go the other way. The world's gone nuts - which is why I say I needed the scripture James started with this morning.
***Obama regrets golfing after Foley death. Only because of the backlash. Certainly not because you know you should have honored him by at least pretending to be concerned.
And for the jaw-dropping comment of the day:
And he also admitted that sometimes his own performance in some of the more public rituals of the presidency was lacking.
"Part of this job, is also the theater of it.
"It's not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters. And I'm mindful of that," Obama said.
***Pot for the poor in California. Sometimes I think we'd be better off if California just broke off the U.S. and floated away.
In my experience with California’s lower income neighborhoods there is one item that is never reported to be in short supply.
Fathers are absent. Stable homes are absent. Jobs are absent. Education is absent. And due to state government incompetence, even water is absent.
But I’ve never heard anything about a shortage of marijuana.
And although I am unable to verify this from personal experience, those in the know say most consumers begin their search for wacky tobaccy in our less fortunate areas where local entrepreneurs are ready and able to meet demand.
This is why it was surprising when FOX News reported the Berkeley City Council unanimously passed on ordinance “ordering medical marijuana dispensaries to donate 2 percent of their stash to patients making less than $32,000 a year.”
Meaning Berkeley becomes the first city in the nation to offer dope stamps along with food stamps. It also makes one wonder if the no smoking rules in council chambers also apply to marijuana?
