I need to VENT today......
*Does our government not realize that if they would concentrate on getting the economy fixed that so many other things would fall into place?
*Why is it that I pay my bills on time, try to make "good common sense" calls and I try to be considerate and fair to all that I am the one that is left out of governments decisions?
*Why do boys think I want to see their underwear or girls think that I want to see their undies?
*Why can't we make "common sense" decisions in our school system? Punish the kids that break dress code and give the ones that dress properly all the time a chance to dress in normal clothes. Why in the world are we punishing an Eagle Scout for having a small knife locked in his work box, locked in his car at school?
*Why can't we have the men and women in our prison system clean up the road sides and perform other county/state/fed jobs as this? Make them work for their meals...... We do!
*Why is Obama on TV so much?
*Why can't my family watch TV without seeing so much trash?
*If he wants kids to go to year round school, why doesn't he start with his own kids and leave them in school when he goes on some of this wonderful trips? I never was able to take my children out anytime I wanted to go somewhere.
*Why don't we have parenting/family or life classes in highschool anymore? Some of the kids really need to learn about doing the RIGHT things in life! Let's try to keep them off the streets!
*During a Church Service when the pastor is preaching, why can't everyone refrain from eating and drinking in Church. We have been visiting new Churches and I have been shocked. Do they not know how distracting it is for those around them when the coke bottle is turned up or the rice krispy treat wrapper is pulled down.... this is adults I am talking about! No problem with toddlers having treats. Can they not give GOD their total attention for one hour???? ADHD at its best!
*I could really vent about Politics ~ Both sides now ~ but I would really get frustrated!
Something to share with you~
Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY! 'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics.. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!'
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.
