What's your Agenda?

Have you ever had a day when you struggle with the truth? Not telling the truth, I'm not talking about lying, but you realize that maybe your eye's are opening to the bigger picture and after all of the smoke and mirrors are gone the only thing left is the big white elephant in the room?
The people that you consider your friends, are really only your friends for what you can do for them.
That's where I am at today...pray for me please!

I hadn't realized that it's been over a year since my last post! I feel the need to talk and express again, which for me is a good thing, it helps reduce stress!
So I get alot of what I call news from Yahoo, sometimes I'll actually watch the news on T.V. but that's rare. well this morning I open up Yahoo and read this!!
Now I know at times Adam may tell you that I could be a better parent, but never would I put a child through something like this, and I am wondering how people are even allowed to have children sometimes!
That's enough for today.

Dumbing Down

There was a short piece on the Today show this morning on how Americans are being dumbed down.

I missed the clip but it got me thinking, are we really as dumb as they think?

I mean look at some of the things that the media shoots at us on a daily basis...Global Warming...the price of gas...Joel Osteen...war in Iraq...9/11...Britney Spears...just to name a few.

But look a little closer st some of these, Global Warming? Where? Not here in Michigan. The price of gas, soooooo many problems with refineries and pipiline breaks...but oil companies are recording record profits?

War in Iraq, people hate Americans, but do we really get the whole story? are the people of Iraq grateful for what happened?

9/11? face it ...it was real! but the government set it all up so they could start a war and then control oil in that region?

Joel Osteen the feel good preacher, some 40,000 members in his church, made $55,000,000 last year preaching the message of love. Where's the repentance? Where's the truth?

And then to top it all off, let's end our newscast by showing poor old Britney, having a breakdown and going into the hospital again! What about the guy next door who commited suicide because his wife left him and took his kid's? Where's that story?

Are we as a society being dumbed down? man I hate to say it, but to some extent YES!

Wouldn't it be refreshing for just one day, that everything that we saw or heard was the truth? I'm not so sure that we could handle the truth!

Why Men Are Never Depressed!

My Sister sent this to me and I thought I would share!
Men Are Just Happier People . What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. A wedding dress is $5,000 but a Tux rents for $100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades! You only have to shave your face and neck. You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes, one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes. No wonder men are happier.

Dictionary Time?

Who is it that defines what an addiction is?
Webster Say's this; "compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly : persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful"
Some people know that they have addictions others may not, and some may have habits that they think are o.k. but in all reality their habits are just as much of an addiction as an admitted addict.
What if you don't have withdraw symptoms that are easily seen? like what you might get with heroin, alcohol or nicotine?
And who is it that decides what the tolerance level is? Society? The Church? your family?
Just looking for opinions.
