Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
She does make our journey together an enjoyable one.

"But allowing elected officials to say anything they want about people running for office — and requiring zero proof in order to report those claims — seems to be a bridge too far. And to defend that behavior by saying, "Well, we won, didn't we?" feels like the junior high school logic that shouldn't be employed by the men and women trusted with representing us in Washington — or anywhere else." ~ Chris Cillizza, Washington Post
I'm certainly not excluding myself from Jeremiah's inspired assessment. At the same time it would be good for folks to do their best with God's help to make decisions that reflect honesty and integrity. I was reading one article that asked what message is being sent when lying is openly touted as being okay if you win. Is that what we want our children to learn? Would Senator Reid advise his grandchildren to tell lies on their schoolmates in order to gain an advantage? After all, that would promote their desire to achieve and that is the purpose of their education. Right? I think we can see where this type of rationalizing without any controls will lead us. And, oh by the way, look around, as a nation we certainly are not in Kansas anymore, and the place where we are may not be very good at all. And, that's my thoughts on the subject as I remind myself of my responsibilities before the Lord. Maybe tomorrow I will have something a little more encouraging to share. Until then, remember, God does care about how we operate the lives He has given to us. Amen. ...More later.

"Worried about an IRS audit? Avoid what's called a red flag. That's something the IRS always looks for. For example, say you have some money left in your bank account after paying taxes. That's a red flag." (Jay Leno)
