Fizz,

Sometimes the Senate is referred to as "the house of Lords'.


In 1994 the Republicans took the majority in the House with a promise of reform. (Contract with America). One plank was:

"10. THE CITIZEN LEGISLATURE ACT

A first-ever vote on term limits to replace career politicians
with citizen legislators." never passed!

Well, when they were in the majority they failed to follow through on terms limits, power corrupts regardless of party affiliation.

You may have noticed he posted the article, well no matter.

Again, Would you vote for this guy?
us3 runs a great many ideas by me too.

i leave it to his discretion if he is to post things or not..

so far to his credit he has been unpredictable, coupled w a few dandys posts in the mix.

as far as voting for frist, i would based on his public service thus far.


he could not come over and feed the cats if i were on vacation though

thank u-

Hmmmm

Hi all,

Gotta ponder this one for a bit. As some of you know, I am a veterinary student, and animal dissection is part of my curriculum. My guess is, Frist was trying to further his understanding of anatomy - would you rather he went out, adopted a child, and dissected the child to get his anatomy lesson? As much as I love animals and my chosen profession, animals are NOT humans. I'm not saying that what he did was right, there are other ways he could have acquired the knowledge he was trying to gain. But this is something he did a long time ago, we all have done stupid things that we probably wouldn't have done if we had thought them through a bit more. NO ONE is perfect, ANY presidential candidate is going to have skeletons in their closet. He has expressed remorse for his actions. Just remember - in God's eyes, all sin is equal. Lying, envy, gluttony, etc is just as repulsive to Him as murder.

I've got to agree with this...it was a long time ago and he admits he was wrong. If that is the biggest skeleton in his closet, I can get past it.

Very well said, Beth.




It could be worse - he could have said something nice about Strom Thurmond.

I am sorry, you guys are losing me here.

Murder- Lock the SOB up for the rest of his life.

Envy- Good for the American economy, I want the 40" HDTV my neighbor just bought. I envy so much I may break down and go to Best Buy and get one. While I'm at it, I envy my friends new Grand Cherokee, I might have to go to Phoenix and get a Diamond deal!

As I am eating someone else's Happy Festivus cookies am I guilty of gluttony?

I think God's eyes are in better shape than you suggest.

If not, I hope he raises his hands to his eyes and heals himself.

I guess what I meant is, we all decide for ourselves (consciously or not) 'how bad is too bad'. Some think Frist shouldn't be elected if he runs for prez because of the cat situation. Others would say, well, if he murdered a person, that would be REALLY bad, then he definitely shouldn't get to be prez. Some would say the same if there was adultery in his past, where others would say who cares? What if he shoplifted as a 10 year old? At 40? At 10 years old, he would know what he was doing was wrong, but I bet alot of people would cut him some slack, vs. an incident occuring at 40 - BUT - shoplifting is shoplifting is shoplifting...........

Sorry to use these crappy examples, I don't mean to imply that Frist has done any of the above things

*WE* judge what will disqualify someone (in our eyes) from being a worthy leader of our country. In the big scheme of things, God doesn't keep a point sheet when we do something wrong - "Uhoh, white lie = 1 point - oh, there he goes again, stole an extra newspaper = 5 points..." When we commit any sin, big or small (in our eyes), God's heart is broken and we are seperated from Him. When we can admit what we did was wrong and ask for forgiveness, the relationship is restored, and it is like that sin is cast to the ocean floor, never to be dredged up again. SOOOOOOO nice that Christ is able to do that, I think we would all be alot better off if we were capable of doing the same.
