The First 100 Days of President Obama

Hard to believe the first 100 have already come and gone. The news good news is that we are all still here and I expect we will here after the next 100 days of the Presidents administration.

Today I heard Rush give the President a D grade for the first 100 days. I'm sure all the other news whether mainline - drive-by - or radio personalities as well as each of us have given or will give a grade to the President.

I am choosing to not grade the President at this time. However, as a citizen of this great Country I am concerned about direction and the following thoughts do concern me a great deal:

*I am concerned that President Obama has so quickly reversed stem cell research and funding for some abortions. It seems to me that with all our financial problems that funding could and should go to a better purpose

*I am concerned that President Obama is allowing the Federal Government to become partial owners of many major banks and other giants of industry such as the Auto Industry. I am not a socialist, nor was our great Country founded on Socialist ideals. Yet, Mr. President, it seems you are running as full speed down this pathway. I for one cannot run with you on this.

*I am concerned Mr. President that you are so willing to open dialogue with shall we say, men who do not have the best interests of our Government at heart. Just one example. While I have no personal feelings toward Mr. Chavez, and while I would like to sit and share the gospel with him, is it really wise for you sir to seek him out and shake his hand without any meaningful dialogue?

Those of you who are reading this post (who am I kidding) may feel that I am one of those who are hoping that the President fails. I do not hope such a thing. I am not sure I support all of his programs - obviously, I have a problem with some as you can tell. My hope is that the best days of USA are not gone and forgotten, but are ahead of us.

Mr. President, please prayerfully consider your actions before taking them.

Arlen Specter

Senator, at 79 yrs old it would seem you after having been a long time Republican could wrap up your career with the GOP rather than for another 6 yr term change parties. Two things come to mind - the first is you have been acting a lot like a Dem for a good portion of your career and the other has to do with principles - how can one change such an life decision based merely on the possible out come of an election? If you were going to change for prinicple alone it would seem to me you would have done so during the Bush yrs.

Is D.C. just a game for people today?

Are there any principled people there?

Why not just retire at 79?

Intro to my blog

Life from my point of view is really about how I look at life. I confess my life is slanted due to an overwhelming influence in my life - Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God - who came to earth from heaven, born of the Virgin Mary, who ministered 3 yrs, was crucified, died, buried, and rose again as foretold and today is at the right hand of the thone of God.

It is my point of view that every one needs to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I hope anyone reading this blog will either know the Lord or want to know more about the Lord

Life from my point of view is lived by the principles and teachings of the Word of God (WOG). It causes me to look at morality, politics, relationships, parenting, and such thru the lenses of what Jesus has to say.

So with that in mind, feel free to look @ life from my point of view
