Troublemaker

My face when I see a misleading Facebook Meme.

I've never encouraged a single one of you to take my word for what the Bible states. Read it. To be informed and educated, you have to do the work yourself, just like high school. Do you remember what it was like being in a constant state of drama in High School? The he said/she said, the worrying about whether your best friend was going to spill the beans about your secrets (mine never did, she's awesome sauce), or the naughty drunk confessions that made it's way to the lunchroom the next day? Ya didn't know whom to trust, because they were all out for the JUICE. More often than not, we knew WHO the troublemaker was, and I often wondered why we never exiled that person to the Rocker's Table. Now I know. As long as we're not the subjects of the drama, we're willing to turn a deaf ear to the devil, but just how long do YOU think it'll be before your name comes up in some mess?
As Americans, we have the responsibility to ask questions. The freaking Facebook Privacy scare is an amazing example of how some, just accept information, then pass it on, no questions asked. We now have a female Democrat (Illinois) telling the world that the Republican Party is trying to rob women of basic healthcare rights. I tend to vote Republican, but I can assure you, that I in no way shape or form, support the quashing of female healthcare rights. The one thing our glory days and today have in common is we know who the troublemaker is/was, we just don’t care. I've seen and read the polls. Most Americans don't want PP defunded, we don't want the refugees, we want the wall, we don't want the wall, we like McD over Wendy's, we don't want drilling in the Alaska, but what these polls don't tell you, is that the Pollsters can make the numbers, say anything they want. If you only poll democrats, on a democratic championed issue, you are going to recover some overwhelmingly supportive feedback. A local radio station bills itself as the most listened station in Danville.....among 18-36 years old.....they are not the OVER all listened to station in Danville, but why let facts get in way of marketing? I'm asking that we slow down, and not give the troublemaker in high school more power or attention than he deserves. A HOUSE/COUNTRY divided cannot not stand UNITED. Do the right thing. Read, think, and investigate. Be the a**hole like me, who goes to Snoops for everything.....oh and if I see one more threat against my privacy from a Facebook meme....I may just do a virtual punch in the face....ENOUGH. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Thursday.
