“There is a religious war going on in our country for the soul of America.” July 3, 2013

Pat Buchanan was right. The Islamic rift between Sunni and Shia has nothing on Mormon seat-savers vs. non-seat-savers. Other than the fisticuffs and vehicular mayhem, I’m siding with the non-seat-saver philosophically.  Five or fewer minutes before meeting go-time, the seat savers need to just give it up.

25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbor?

30 And Jesus answering said, A certain woman went down to St. George, Utah, and fell unconscious outside her apartment.

31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw her, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on her, and passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where she was: and when he saw her, he had compassion on her,

34 And went to her, and carried her to his apartment, and changed her clothes, and put her on his bed and hugged her to try to get her temperature up, and applied his heated dipstick because he wanted to save her life. Oh, and he washed her up while she was sedated before calling the police because he was so worried about her and about rape kits.

35 And when he departed with the police he said unto them, I would have done the same for you.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto her that fell unconscious?

37 And he said, I don’t know what to say. Then said Jesus unto him, It doesn’t matter, SMOD should be here any minute.

Brewfan will probably like this newer Christmas song because it shows people drinking beer.
They received no funding for recording it or making the video which was filmed at a museum in Shropshire, UK. Many of the characters in the video are museum staff, I actually make a cameo appearance in the beginning*.

You can get more information at the Florin Street Band website.

In response to my my three, somewhat negative posts, Kevlar Chick said, “Your next post needs to detail what I do next: a weapons bunker or a run on duct tape.”  To which Dave sagely responded she should get a shotgun and some ice cream.  And while I defer to Dave’s wisdom, I’d like to expand on that a bit, and talk about three possible answers to what you should do next, involving the Political, the Pragmatic, and the Philosophical.

Memorial Day and Survivor’s Guilt May 28, 2012

Every year my church has a tradition of having the veterans line up in front of the congregation on the Sunday preceding Memorial Day and every year I feel guilty because I feel like we’re stealing glory from those who didn’t survive.  We have Veterans Day. Memorial Day is about the dead, not the living, but in a way it’s not. Our pastor told us that we still remember the dead, but it’s too late to say thank you to them. It’s not too late to say thank you to the survivors so we continue the tradition. His words helped. Now I think that it’s more like a moment for us all to join together to remember our brothers and sisters that didn’t survive. People need a time to grieve together, a time of rememberance. It’s like bringing them back to life for a little while even if it’s only in our memories. Having talked to some of the other vets I know that’s what they’re thinking too. Some sadness, some guilt, but at the same time proud of those who gave all so that we could be standing there today. It felt like they were there with us.

When I first started thinking about this post I wanted to post the names of the 19 from my home state of Oklahoma that have died serving America since last Memorial Day, then in the middle of it I found out that a 20th had been killed. He was a Hospital Corpsman in his early 20’s, much like my own son, he was even serving in the same province when he was killed by an IED. His name was Eric D. Warren. His death was announced on Sunday.

Enjoy your BBQ, spend time with your families, maybe drink a few in memory of them, but please take a moment at least once today to think about how expensive our freedoms really are, and pray for the families that are still grieving.

God bless America.

This is the coolest video you will view today.

It was published a year ago… I guess it’s old.
