Lord, awaken us!
"Lord of Life, many of us are deeply concerned that we have betrayed our deepest values as a nation, and that we are distorting the gospel itself in pursuit of power and wealth. Everywhere we turn, followers of Jesus advocate violence to solve problems, and seem to possess none of the dispositions of a follower of Jesus. Help us, we pray, to seize the day, and turn the ship of state around. In Christs name we pray, Amen."
Read this book.
Wadn' that bad of a president, either. He was honest to a fault -- to many, many faults.
Imagine that. An honest president!
I felt so bad while he was pres. He couldn't catch a break for crap.
Hey, dr lbj, did Numbers Friday night take you back? History keeps goin round and round.
If you like High Interest Rates, Inflation, Unemployment, and International Ridicule...
He was a wonderful Crisis Generator.
We owe him a national debt of gratitude, because without Carter, we would have never had Reagan.
And he was just about as responsible for the ridicule that this country enjoyed then as Dubya was for 9/11.
What counts is the ways he tried to deal with both.
And for both, he gets a D for performance and an A for good conduct.
And we haven't had a president get an A for conduct -- i.e., honesty -- since Jimmy Carter.
That for the Reminder! ;-)
"Hee," he said, adding, "Hee!"
Now Tim and boys that learned a little bit better from the militia types and the 9-11 dudes, wow, well I'm glad our 60 types didn't have those resources or imagination.
By the way, did anyone else see the SLA shoot-out live on TV?
As for the prayer...render unto Ceasar...seperation of church and state should cut both ways...we are NOT a Christian Nation...When we try to act like a real Christian Nation then you'll have good men like Carter ... Carter was the product of Nixon ...Reagan was the product of Carter...Clinton was the product of Reagan...GW Bush is the product of the Supreme Court.
The Capitol bombing was in November of 1971 by the Weather Underground.
That was an age when radical-liberals did stuff like that.
I missed the date. That was the era, like I said before, when JB and I were sitting out by my thoughtfull place on the Deep Fork reconstructing my mind, and I wasn't paying attention to the world.

Looks like Galactica done went and found Earth. They just don't know it. Wonder if there'll be Indians a whoop-en and holler-en. Next week is the seanon end for the best 3 shows on tv. I miss ole man Anderson though.
I for one welcome this early and hasty onslaught of the Fundamentalist Right. It might just wake up the people in the middle to the lies and false positions the Radical Right has used to try to get its hands on the throat of America.
They have reached too far and with too much haste, and will pay the price. If they had tried incremental and slow they would have succeeded. Thank God they are not that patient.
And now more far more serious stuff:
Anon, based on the prophecy, doesn't the president have to die before they reach Earth?
They jumped the Shark when they brought in the second Battlestar and voided about a dozen elements of continuity, and threw out the plot line. Greed, that all it was, simple greed on the part of the producers, now we are on a slightly more sophisticated plot line of the old Battle Star Galactica. Can't wait for the new super being, that Boomer#2's kid is obviously going to be, takes over.
It was such a good show with a lot of promise. Sad.
