Choosing Your Leaders?

I stumbled across a quote from a meme on FB.

I followed up, as many quotes are often mis-attributed. It was from Octavia Butler’s book “Parable Of the Talents.”  While that particular work of fiction may be good, or bad, or whatever, ..the quote is brilliance.  Some truths simply have a life of their own.

“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.”

Dang.

That pretty much covers everyone.

Michigan Rally – Trump’s Message

Trump was watching yesterday.

His in-box message this morning suggests the primaries might be interesting.  Yeah, ..we have some worthless ‘leadership’ that needs to go.

Big rally in Michigan yesterday, unbelievable spirit and knowledge of what went on with respect to voting and vote counting in the 2020 Presidential Election. Detroit, considered for many years to be one of the most corrupt places in the United States for elections (and many other things!), had large-scale irregularities so much so that two officials, at great risk to themselves and their families, refused to certify the results, and were sadly threatened. Wasn’t it a fact that aside from other things, there were far more votes than voters? Even the RINOs on the Senate Committee found 289,866 absentee ballots that were sent to people who never requested them, “something that would be illegal.” Why did they viciously kick out the Republican poll watchers? Seventy percent of Detroit’s mail-in ballot counting boards didn’t match, it was a total mess. Why won’t they give respected professionals and representatives at yesterday’s rally the right to do a Forensic Audit of Wayne County (Detroit) and Macomb County? That includes the RINOs in the State Senate and House who for, whatever reason, do nothing but obstruct instead of seeking the truth. Hopefully, each one of these cowardly RINOs, whose names will be identified and forthcoming, will be primaried, with my Complete and Total Endorsement, in the upcoming election. Congratulations on the great rally yesterday!

As for number of votes being more than voters exist?  Probably not.

However, the newly minted Michigan constitution (circa crazy-ass 2018 referendums) does say any one of us can demand an audit.  It’s not like the government can ignore the constitutions ..right?

All that aside, Benson should have been impeached by our legislature for breaking the law BEFORE the election.  And now she is shepherding the most damaging (to local communities) electoral gerrymander the state has ever seen.

Cowardice begets tyranny.

Sunday Sermon – A Defense Of Marriage

Traditional marriage is under attack like never before.

People not only in America but all over the world are debating and arguing over what a marriage is and what a marriage isn’t. As Christians it doesn’t really matter what our opinions of marriage are or whether or not we think that it should be re-defined. What should matter to believers like us is what the Bible and God says about marriage.

The Bible clearly defines marriage and anyone who cares to read it for themselves will find there really are no gray areas even though some people will attempt to say that there are. Marriage is biblically defined as a holy union ordained by God to be between one man and one woman. No human being, no act of congress, nor any society created marriage. Marriage goes all the way back to Genesis. In Genesis 1:27-28 we read this: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And in our first reading this morning we read this: So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Meanwhile On Mackinac

Hopefully our Republican warriors are having a good time.

It’s been nearly a year since “most popular president of all time” won a reality defying contest here in the state of Michigan and they are about to pass a super sized budget at a whopping $62 Billion.  And worse than the size alone is the fact that it continues to fund those agencies which have abused Michiganians over the past year and a half.

From the state police, which was used as Whitmer’s personal enforcers to the ‘occupational’ cretins who relish any chance to assert authority, to the local health departments with over sized nurse Ratchets in charge, so many businesses have been harmed, ..some irreparably and without recourse, even after the courts ruled Whitmer’s earlier acts as illegal.

And worse than all of that, was the destruction of elections with integrity.

First Amendment Or Firing?

I tend to be of the opinion that no employment robs one of his or her ability to speak and offer opinion.

Free speech is a win-win, right?  So what happens when a person who represents policy for an employer openly disagrees with that employer’s position on any specific subject? What if the employer is not only disagreed with, but is defamed in the process?

We may find out. From our favorite fish wrap in the North:

“The medical director for the Grand Traverse County Health Department contends county commissioners “crossed the line from illogical to irresponsible” when they passed a resolution that curbs messaging public health officials distribute in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “

There is disagreement, which would be better served with an “I understand their concern, but this is wrong..” and then there is ..name calling, ..yes?

In this case, it is about the resolution passed in order to reign in some of the messaging, and the inability of the health department to step outside its authority in the name of ‘science.’  Commissioners last week put the check on their subordinates, and it didn’t sit well with the ‘heroes’ of the plandemic.  This particular doctor’s feathers were ruffled, and in true Doctor speak (“I am better than anyone cause of my letters”) he made sure we all know it.

Perhaps 78 year old Collins may not care whether he is employed by the county, so open insubordination bordering on defamation is easy. Or perhaps Mr Collins ..MD, hasn’t in his nearly octogenarian status has yet to learn the role of the politicians we elect? ..That is ..to protect our rights.

A Proper Application Of Government Policy

On Wednesday, the Grand Traverse County  Board of Commissioners will address in a small way, the potential for yet another round of mandates, and the pressures currently being made for the population to accept and receive as-yet unapproved and untested vaccines.

Those who oppose the effort, a resolution in support for your constitutionally protected rights, will attempt to abuse the constitution in their own way arguing for ‘general welfare’ as reasons to support mandates, lock-downs and other restrictions placed on your liberties.  Those who oppose the statement of liberty would gladly see government toss it’s constitutional limits any time fear can be applied successfully  – As it has in the past 18 months.

The resolution reads:
