An Opportunity for Excellence

It is my humble opinion that both political parties have an opportunity to excel over the next few days.

As Hurricane Gustav bears down on the beleaguered Gulf Coast, it seems that both sides are falling over themselves in an attempt to focus on those in the path of the storm.

I only pray that this will continue through the storm and the aftermath. The highest ideal in this situation would be for both sides to forget the colors of red and blue and remember that we are all Americans. I say shame on either party who attempts to use this potentially tragic situation to gain political capital.

It is the time for the country to unite in prayer and compassion for our fellow citizens. Both candidates claim to be Christians (and I am not questioning the validity of those claims here), may their actions stem from the fruit of the Spirit and not a desire for self-glorification.

I can hope, can’t I?

Help for Undecided Voters

Just in case you are undecided on the next election, here’s a little help for you. I don’t normally post things that are forwarded in e-mails, but my good buddy, Rob, sent me this one and I couldn’t pass it up.

Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Southerner?

Here is a little test that will help you decide. The answer can
be found by posing the following question:
You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two
small children.
Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around
the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises
the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a 40 caliber Glock, and you
are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your
family. What do you do?

Democrat’s Answer:
Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to
attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife
out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Glock have an appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message
does this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just
to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get
away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day, and make this
a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some
friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.

Republican’s Answer:
BANG!

Southerner’s Answer:
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG! Click….. (Sounds of reloading)
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG! Click
Daughter: ‘Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester
Silver Tips or Hollow Points?’
Son: “Can I shoot the next one?”
Wife: “You’re not takin’ that to the Taxidermist!”
