Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, a local family built a gas station/convenience store in a little rural town. Everybody knew everybody, and it was a fairly clean, family oriented place. As time went on, the family decided to sell the store. Some guy from who-knows-where comes in and buys it. His first move was to apply for a beer license.
The entire community went to the courthouse to object to the application the evening it was considered. After seeing the outrage and hearing all the objections to the idea of selling beer out of that store, the owner decided to withdraw the application, much to the dismay of his wife. Most members of the community, myself included, put a couple of dollars on a table for the guy to pay him back for his application fee, since the good-natured guy decided he wouldn’t sell beer in the dry community. All was well.
Until one day, a few months later, the owner is now proudly displaying on his road sign, “COLD BEER”. From that moment on I personally never set foot in the store again. He knew the community didn’t want it, but was able to legally proceed because of a technicality on the laws regarding the distance between school grounds and an establishment that sells alcohol. The store is almost literally in the school’s back yard. Well, it was.
About a week ago I drove past the store, and saw that it had been burned. I hadn’t heard of anyone being hurt, and was concerned about that, but my first thought about the store itself was, “Good. It’s gone.”
Another recent event that I’m sure everyone has heard about is the news about Ted Kennedy. First, let me talk just for a minute about his record – his constant tearing down of America.
He is one of the (if not the) most liberal figures in modern government. His record is one of tearing down Christian values – values this country was founded upon. For example, he voted against a partial-birth abortion ban. In other words, he wanted to make sure it was legal for a baby to be murdered in cold blood during its birth.
He also is a huge supporter of gun control. Without going into a lot of detail on the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution, I’ll just say that we are guaranteed the right to own firearms. He voted against a bill that would prohibit confiscation of legally owned firearms during a ‘disaster’. Much like the type of thing that happened after hurricane Katrina ruined Baton Rouge. Authorities started going door to door and confiscating everyone’s guns. The argument about the guns themselves is one for another day, but that is an illegal and communistic act to say the least. It reminded me a lot of what I’ve read and heard of Nazi Germany.
Last, but definitely not least, Ted Kennedy is also a proud public supporter of same-sex marriage. It is a wicked thing that God burned an entire city for, and still hates today. I don’t care what anyone says, God did not make anyone a sodomite – they make that choice on their own. But that is also a topic for another day.
Ted Kennedy’s record speaks for itself. He has done everything he can to tear down this country. As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, he has been found to have a cancerous brain tumor. They say the average survival rate for patients with this particular condition is about 15 months.
With all the wickedness he is allowing, and even actively supporting, I really have a hard time feeling sorry for him. That’s all I can really say about it. It’s poetic justice.
Some of the words and phrases I have used in this post were plagiarized from my dad. He put into words what I was already thinking, though…so I figured it was ok. 🙂
