Greetings Everyone: Show down at Beavercreek. This Wednesday 1,May 5:30 PM will be the Clackamas County Round Table Meeting where county attorney Steve Madskor or any of the commissioners are expected to show the law that gives the Clackamas County Sheriff's Department and public or corporate officials immunity from prosecution for crimes of racketeering and official misconduct. If no such law can't be produced, then it will remain to…
The latest push to shove the federal Common Core Curriculum down states throats via the threat of ending federal funding to those states that do not implement it has hit Florida. The state legislature is currently in committee writing legislation to implement it and make it state law. I am not going to argue the merits of the Common Core as a viable education model because the jury is still deliberating its content and methodology. What I am going to discuss and emphasize is the…
I do, therefore, issue this my Proclomation, recommending to all, who shall be piously disposed to unite in their hearts and voices in addressing, at one and the same time, their vows and adorations to the great…
Upon our brief return to our home in Florida, Sammy, our greyhound gave me a ho-hum look and retired to his doggie-bed; not the excited welcome home I expected after being away for over a month. I fear the house-sitter has stolen the affection of my dog.
Talk about Yogi Berra's famous line, “It's deja vu all over again”, have you noticed the similarity in how the mainstream media is portraying suspected marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the way they portrayed Trayvon Martin? In both cases, the media blasted a much younger angelic…
What follows is a copy of a letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall today regarding what I consider to be questionable and/or mysterious circumstances surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing.
I don't know the answer to that question but it will happen!!! And it will be SUPER UGLY. Many of the countries ruled by Islamists have atom bombs and those with the religion of Peace will not hesitate to use them. Their main desire is to have only one religion on Earth and that is Islam. If you can't be converted you will be killed!!
Personaly I'd rather be dead than to live in a world shere Sharia is the law. Women have essentially no rights
Wednesday, April 17, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of extraordinary impact on the Constitution and the power of the federal government to control every aspect of citizens’ lives. Not surprisingly, it’s a case you’ve never heard of.
United States v. Kebodeaux is of such immeasurable importance that if the Obama administration is victorious, it will — perhaps irreversibly — accelerate the consolidation of all power in Washington, D.C. As…
The following recent article, which includes a video, reveals that the father of one of the alleged suspects of the Boston Marathon bombing that was killed by law enforcement officers early this morning talked to ABC News staff and…
The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).
It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.
Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.
Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.
Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.
Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.
Be friendly and helpful.
Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.
Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.
Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.
Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.
Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.
Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.
Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!
The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.
You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.
Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
