Remember Your Catechism?

Not sure if this is common to all Christian churches but we learned about the term "unformed conscience." The definition was pretty basic--there are varying degrees to which all of us have to work to develop our consciences. This is not an easy task. We need to be surrounded with folks who have also worked to the point where they can be called good or people of conscience.

I'm thinking about how the President can hurt so many people without a worry about how his actions can affect us and future generations. He simply wants to leave a legacy. Can this really be unintentional? Hard to believe...

Granted, having not read either of his books I'm not sure of details, but it seems a little obvious that his mother didn't spend a lot of time teaching him right from wrong since she was busy changing living locations, husbands and ultimately sending her son to be brought up by others. I'm quite sure he was a well behaved child and the grandparents probably were light on discipline. No judgment here, just looking at what has gone into the makeup of a young man's growth. Things came to him easily and it was a lesson learned and still carried high expectations.

This whole health care thing can be boiled down to two broken promises:

1) the IRS deduction is changed from costs over 7 1/2% to costs over 10%. This is a tax increase on the middle class any way you want to look at it.

2) care will necessarily be rationed. This is a far cry from "if you like your insurance you can keep it." My level of care will change any way you want to look at it.

There are many other items in his so-called health care which can be added to the list, but this is certainly a "read my lips" moment and Joe Wilson was right.

Have a great weekend--
Temps in the 40s coming up--
God bless...........
