Give Me a Break

Dallas officials are pushing to rename some public schools after the President and newly sworn Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Come on! The President has been in office for 10 months and Sotomayor has been a Justice for what, a week?  I think a good qualification for naming public buildings should be that the person is dead, or at least out of office. Or better, yet, why not name the schools like New York City does? Public School #1, #2, etc.

The debate rages on over the President’s health care bill. He has even taken to the highways of America conducting Town Hall meetings, giving John Q. Public a chance to express his opinion to the President. Apparently, there’s not much room for debate. The President is using these opportunities to tell America why they’re going to get it. The public isn’t able to do much talking.

Senators are now saying that the controversial end of life provision is being excluded from the bill. Former Governor Sarah Palin has some interesting perspectives on the provision. The public is clearly weighing in on this debate causing severe problems for the email servers at the House. Once again, I encourage you to write your elected officials and urge them to vote against this health care bill.

Crazy stuff is happening in our Government, but don’t lose hope. Government is not the answer to life’s problems. As long as we live on this earth, we’ll have issues. We’ll disagree with our elected officials, just remember that you elected them, and you can invite them to leave office. Our hope does not rest in a Government program. In the words of the hymn writer Edward Mote, “My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.”
