Congressional Rip-off

Okay, SOMEONE was listening in when I called in to a radio show a month ago.

Illegal immigration was the topic. I called in and suggested that perhaps the only way to get anything done about illegal immigration was to make a bill that gave both sides everything they wanted so everyone could be pissed off about stuff they don't want being part of a bill that also did what they wanted. Now Congres has gone and done exactly that. It took tem 600 pages to outline what I could in 2 minutes of talking; but what else should we expect from a bunch of lawyers?

It will never pass, but it's valiant and thoroughly misguided effort.

Who says one man can't make a difference?

I have not been posting lately because I have been working hard on my book and all of my writing efforts have been directed there. However, something momentous and tragic has happened and I must say something about it.

Reverend Jerry Falwell has died.

This is a man who had many enemies, but that is to be expected when you stand up for what is right. The Bible says that darkness hides from the light. The way dark people hated the light that was Jerry Falwell proved it beyond any doubt. He said some stupid things, but we all do that from time to time. The only difference between this great man and the rest of us nobodies is that he had a national voice and vocal enemies who also had a national voice to attack him every time he put his foot in his mouth.

This man did more good in his lifetime than most thousand people will do combined. He was kind, honest, generous, driven, and always faithful to God. If everyone in the world shared these qualities all of the world's problems would be solved.

More than anything the Reverend Falwell would want to be remembered as a man of God. While he was a powerful political activist who is partly responsible for reshaping the political landscape in America, this was not his most importat work. It was his work in service to God that is his greatest legacy. He served as a role model for all mankind, and some people loved him for it, and some people hated him for it. My regular readers know what I think of people who hate what God calls good and what I think of people who love what God calls good, and I will not go into that here.

America lost a national treasure this day. Reverend Jerry Falwell, you will be sorely missed.
