Bible class rules set for Texas schools – Faith- msnbc.com

This world has sure changed! 

Once upon a time a person’s faith was respected, everyone knew that one’s religion was there own business, and the only thing you had to deal with was others attempting to convert you to their religion.

Now days you have all of these special interest groups and these so called watch dogs sticking their nose into private people’s business.  Yes a bunch of people who usually don’t have a religion to speak of for themselves. 

Separation of church and state wasn’t meant to keep religion out of state, it was meant to keep state out of religion, you know freedom! of religion, the way it use to be not too many years ago.

Then there is the naacp,  in my opinion originated to defend peoples rights.  Now this organization has swung to the other end of the pendulum stealing the individual person’s rights.  The way our constitution was written and understood was about personal respect, and that was how it was.  Sure you always have that element of ignorant knuckle heads who cross the line.  Isn’t that true everywhere?    

Now unfortunately all religions are being attacked, not by other religions, but by these very watch dogs who have butted in where they weren’t needed in the first place.  If we would have been left alone the worst problem facing all religions in the US would be each other trying to convert each other. 

Now today the buttinskies unfortunately aren’t just breaking down our personal rights, they are breaking down the very American fiber that has made the United States of America great, and a country that the world desires to live in, well, they use to. 

Without freedom of religion for all, and freedom of the individual to live peaceably, this country is doomed to continue in the decline from a wonderfully great nation that we were, to a country that will continue to fall apart to the point that we will sell out to the highest bidder like a prostitute, and be forgotten.  Left to be just another country with no reason to say:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Notice that word “ALL”

Big shareholder backs Yahoo board over Icahn – Yahoo! News

Posted in Blogroll on July 18, 2008 by activeinspiration

Well, I must say, Yahoo has done quite a good job under the circumstances, and Mr. Yang has left the sandbox. 

I actually believe that Yahoo is going to fair very well through this whole fiasco.  If this company and its board can survive what they have been through and the rats have already jumped ship, they can do just about anything.  This company has held up quite well, considering what they have had to deal with. 

Myself, I really enjoy Yahoo products, their free email service is the best.  Their Messenger is far superior and leads the pack by a mile.  I love my radio on my messenger!  They are in my opinion the most user friendly service out there, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a Yahoo account. 

As far as this king of the hill power struggle, of late I have found myself actually rooting for Yahoo.  Yea maybe they are the underdog, but I have always enjoyed rooting for underdogs.  It makes for a good ending with lots of goose bumps and tummy ticklers.

I believe this company  will breeze right through that August board meeting with out a hitch and the sharks will swim away looking for a new sent of blood to follow.  Then it will be back to business, and I can’t wait to watch Yahoo’s stock climb back to familiar waters and maybe even to new heights.  Maybe even uncharted waters that pretty much prove what the Board of Directors have said all along, “we are worth more.”

I must confess that I was wrong in my judgement of this whole affair.  At one point I even considered that there was something, some kind of connection with Microsoft, and eventually Yahoo would sell.  Now however, with Yahoo’s fate a little more secure, there is a feeling that balance has returned to the netaverse and life on the net will continue as before.  May the force we with you Yahoo!
