It annoys me when I see a truck driving about 6 feet behind my rear bumper. The law of physics would dictate that we still will arrive at our destinations at about the same time! Truck drivers used to be considered the “gentlemen of the highways”. Now there are some who can’t even speak English!
Anyone who drives on the highway can share plenty of stories of what we’ve seen trucks do….but most of us have no idea what’s going on inside the cab. The new laws and the new fellow-truck drivers have substantially changed the industry and the reputation of trucks on the roads.
My husband used to drive a truck, so this topic is near and dear to me. It was like having a permanently-installed lobbyist built into my house at all times. It’s amazing what a legislator can learn by being married to someone with a strong opinion!
To help you understand, we did a show on what’s happening out there on the road. I hope you find this as helpful as I did.
So many people are fearful that the US Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade. We are seeing reactions from many states to define what their policies should be just in case that happens.
A few states are acknowledging that it is the proper place of government to protect innocent life. Other states are going as fast as they can to make sure babies can be destroyed up until the minute they are born. New York and Virginia are examples of states that have lurched far to the left. On this video, the legislator shows us a glimpse of shame. You can just see her embarrassment because her conscience is telling her that it’s wrong. Continue reading
It is wrong when the government passes laws to put one class of people above another. You’d think with all the complications with budgets, crime and immigration the legislatures would be busy enough working to move us forward. Proposals in both State and Federal governments are not focused on real problems, but rather on what people do in the privacy of their homes. If people were acting outrageously in public, I can imagine it being a priority bill, but since when do we need new laws for people doing something nobody sees? One’s behavior in the bedroom should not precipitate a governmental event.
Laws pertaining to deviant behavior are designed to make a segment of our society feel affirmed and validated (not the purpose of government). They also are designed with sharp teeth for those who want to harass others in a court of law and force societal acceptance of diviancy. Laws can have an impact on our practices through fear of lawsuits, not because of newly found moral convictions. Continue reading

Years ago, a student would be sent to the principal’s office for using profanity. Now teachers are asking students to use profanity!
We went from a time when they threw “religion” out of schools to a time when God is brought back in so He can be openly mocked.
We went to the Lindbergh School District Board meeting to ask the members to adopt a policy against using profanity in the classroom. They told me they’ll get back to me later. I’m still waiting… Continue reading
There are a lot of perspectives on how Christianity is doing. I was appalled a few weeks ago when the United Methodist Denomination felt it necessary to take a vote on allowing sexual perverts to be leaders in their churches. Thankfully, they did the right thing, but the fact that they had to have this discussion says plenty.
If this denomination had not failed to exercise biblical church discipline earlier, it wouldn’t have come to this. This vote was on the question of whether churches will live by the Bible or not. What’s the point of having a church if God’s laws are volitional and no longer relevant? It becomes nothing more than a tax-exempt social club!
Some on the left end of the political spectrum have wormed their way into churches for the opportunity to manipulate the direction of the church. Their goal is to make ideas – abhorrent to our faith – seem socially acceptable.
Sometimes it seems like our human race will self-destruct! I can hardly believe the debates going on about how we treat the unborn and the newly-born! Some people think technology is furthering our progress because we now have the ability to see the baby on an ultrasound and know so much more about fetal development. Yet, here we are watching some states push for unthinkable and horrific treatment of our most innocent youngsters. 19 states have legitimized the right to kill the baby up until the minute before he or she is born and some after the baby is born!
People used to claim they were confused about whether it was a baby or when it had a heartbeat or when the baby felt pain. Now, we have seen the humanity of babies and it’s far past time to confront this as blatant evil. We should have been past this discussion 45 years ago!
Shockingly, 19 states now allow infanticide. Even if a mom doesn’t want to raise her baby, there is no medical reason to kill the baby. Attempts at late-term abortions have resulted in premature births. When this happens, the doctor should be prosecuted for malpractice having caused a deliberate premature birth at enormous medical and physical cost. There is no reasonthe baby should have to suffer or die just because the mother doesn’t want to raise him or her. It is never acceptable to kill people we don’t like!
While I was in the House of Representatives, we had an annual “State of the State Address”. I served under two different Democrat Governors and one Republican Governor. My colleagues showed me how we could clap without it making any sound, so we would appear cordial for the cameras while not lending any support to bad ideas.
When his speech started, I thought the ladies in white were nurses. Some people thought they looked like pastry chefs. After awhile it became obvious that they wanted to dress alike so we could tell they are forming a team. How unfortunate that we can’t just all be Americans. The women in white applauded more for themselves getting elected than for anything else.
I loved it when the President said early in his speech, “Victory is not winning for our Party. Victory is winning for our Country.” Many people in the opposition party had trouble clapping for that. The Democrats couldn’t even clap for the idea of putting human traffickers out of business. What does that tell you? Continue reading
