God on the ballot

Ballot Proposition #4: Public Acknowledgement of God - The use of the word "God", prayers, and the Ten Commandments should be allowed at public gatherings and public educational institutions, as well as be permitted on government buildings and property. YES OR NO

I heard on the radio the other day, when I was listening to Dan Patrick on AM 700, KSEV (great radio to listen to), and he was talking about the different ballot propositions. I was briefly in the car, and didn't hear which ones were being proposed, but that a yes vote on each of them would be a good thing. I think this one would be a good one. It allows freedom of speech again. Seems the only speech disallowed nowadays is religious speech, unless you're a Muslim. Then it's OK to speak all you want, and squawk about being discriminated against. Never mind the blowings up and things going on like that.

Taking a day off from the computer to clean up around here, the kidlet has allergies, and the kleenex fairy has to go about the living room, picking up used kleenex after her. Amazing how that works! Listening to the 80s channel on TV, DirectTV has changed around their stations now, the 70s/80s channel I liked is no more. Now it's a 60s/70s/80s channel. Not as nice. They used to have a 60s/70s channel AND a 70s/80s channel so you could be a bit picker as to what you want to listen to.

Ahmadinajad is lambasting Obummer for not closing Gitmo soon enough for his taste - since when did we care what a nutcase thinks? Obummer is not strong enough on his "oh that's naughty" speeches about Iran. Netanyahu had the stronger condemnation of Iran's nuclear program. Maybe he can loan Obummer some spine.

There is a businessman running against Ron Paul this year for the 14th district of Texas, and his stances on things are good enough that I think he might pull it off - I have not seen polling data for his standings against Ron Paul. Graney is his name - is his website. I looked around it a bit yesterday.


  1. Diane:
    Tell 'ya one thing...if I was listening to THIS kind of stuff while driving...well, I'd have to pull over before I crahsed, due to what I was hearing.
    And don'cha hate it when channel lineups get changed...JUST when you got used to the OLD lineup?
    I know I do.

    It taxes the memory, that's for sure.


  2. Why the surprise? I regularly hear good stuff from Dan Patrick - he's up in the Texas legislature. They've changed channel lineups 3 times so far on the music on DirectTV, its getting really annoying.
