I just wanted to share my feelings on Christmas as the holiday is approaching quickly. As usual I'm filled with the Christmas spirit and although my children are excited about Santa Clause, I'm reflecting on the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. I think sometimes we use the word Savior so much that we forget what that actually means. He is our Savior because He saved all man kind from Eternal darkness.  Because of his atoning sacrifice death is just another notch in our spirits time line. We have the opportunity to continue to live after mortal death. And not just live, but live in his presence.  What about that doesn't sound like the greatest gift ever given?! And he gave that to each and every one of us. No one left out. I can't imagine ANYTHING better than that.
As we all celebrate the meaning of Christmas this year with our families and friends,  in all the fun and commotion,  remember to read a scripture. Remember to share love. No hatred. Pray always and often.  And most of all....remember!  ....remember! Remember him.

Thanks for reading, have a great Christmas!

Politics- Are you kidding me?

I saw a video clip of the Sean Hannity show that aired Thursday night December 4th (2014) in which he was interviewing Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton, the Democrat from D.C.
I need to get this off my chest. I am just so disgusted with our representatives and their B.S.! Hannity asks her why she supports the protests in Ferguson and NY where the narrative is "hands up, don't shoot" because based on the evidence and witness testimony in the Michael Brown case, it doesn't make sense.  Miss Norton was quite blunt when she stated she didn't care about the evidence because there was a bigger picture, which she believes is police officer racism and violence toward black people.  WHAT!!! Are you kidding me?
Sean Hannity Left Visibly Stunned by Dem Congresswoman’s Answer to His Question About Evidence in Michael Brown Shooting

Now I'm not a cop nor do I know many and I hate getting
 pulled over, but I support the police and their right to defend themselves and in my 36 years on this earth the most racism I've seen in my life are from people like this representative and certain other black commentators and celebrities that are constantly talking about how bad it is. I don't have a problem with race. And I believe the bad people out there are from all races, but the majority of people are good.
With the help of the mainstream media,  this small group of people keeps racism hanging on by a thread just so when they think they have the right incident they pull out all the stops and make an unrelated single event seem like it's an epidemic.  This is not how the majority of people in America think. I've lived in Arkansas,  South Carolina,  California,  and Texas and from my own life experience I know racism would go away if it wasn't purposely kept alive by certain people with power and a platform.  I'm tired of it.
Yes, there are people out there that think in that racist way,  BUT it is a very small percentage of our population and if you separate it, that small percentage of people are largely not even white.
I absolutely think people that do bad things should be punished and that's what are justice system is supposed to be about. Justice is supposed to be blind and Miss Norton and others, like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, have made a living off of claiming it's not, but the issue is that they are the people making sure it's not. They are working against the very thing they claim they are fighting for. All races are equal in America.  We all have the same opportunities.  It's up to the individual to make their way. That's the way this country was set up, even if it took a while to get there. Make no mistake,  we are there.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would be proud of the progress, unfortunately I can only imagine his disgust with the way things are playing out now. These protests may have been necessary 50 years ago, but times have changed and the riots and destruction from today's "peaceful protests" are not a continuation of Dr. Kings movement. 
Instead of Miss Norton fueling this violence,  she should concentrate on making policy that benefits all Americans and creates opportunities for all Americans.  That is literally her job.
For those out there that are confused about what's going on, please follow your heart. Don't listen to people like Miss Norton. They have a their own agenda and it doesn't benefit the majority of this country.
Thanks for reading,  have a blessed day!

Sports- The 49ers - Harbaugh controversy asinine

I've been reading all these articles and listening to all these commentators talk about how even if Harbaugh pulled off a super bowl win it wouldn't save his job at the 49ers because of a few unhappy people. Now, I'm a 49er fan and have been since I played pop warner football, but in what business world do we live in where a winning coach like Harbaugh in the highest level of the sport of football where winning counts, is it okay to get rid of a coach that has done so well just because certain people don't like his demanding personality or others get their feelings hurt. His personality is the exact thing that drives him and through him drives his players and his program to win. The controversy is because of a few premodonnas that in my opinion talk too much and can't back it up with action.

After all is said and done, the 49ers separation with Harbaugh is the biggest mistake management can make. The smartest thing the organization can do is trade certain players and and bring in some grateful talent that will work better as a more dynamic and cohesive team.

Before I close, I just wanted to mention one more thing. The press is also a part of this issue. The press has been relentless on this controversy.  As a matter of fact,  their would be no controversy without the presses hand in this. This is not what I want to hear about in sports. I want the football side. I don't know why they focus on making this an issue, perhaps to take sight off real controversy like certain players in the NFL violence towards women (a whole different blog post), but I'm extremely disappointed in sports media. They seem to be following along the same path as main stream, political media.

There's my thoughts.  Have a blessed day.
