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.
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.

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…
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.
