Cellphones

I heard it once said that the worse invention was that of the cellphone. And I tend to believe it. Furthermore, I am in agreement that use of a cellphone while driving should be banned. Allow me to explain:

I have 2 cellphones and a tablet. The 2nd cellphone is in the house in case I lose the first one and thats all. And the tablet has only once left the house. So I use my cellphone wisely.

Others I am not sure of. In fact I think some people will not learn the dangers of driving and texting until someone dies in an accident and by that time it will be to late.

I know of a couple people who make phone calls and text while driving. Sometimes they make use of all three cellphones at once. Thus putting passengers and other drivers at risk.  But what can be done to curb the threat?

What can be done  if you know of someone who sends text messages while driving?

If you have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to make a comment.

Something has to change in Michigan to stop people from this behaviour.

Felons: The New Minority

Lets just say for a moment you did a crime against society and you were sentenced to do time in prison You do your time and are released. Thus you are a free man or women or are you?                                                                                                            007

It seems that somewhere in time society has been allowed to discriminate  people with felony convictions. Thus society has created a new minority and it comes I believe strait from those in Washington DC and filtered down to the common folk known as J.Q. Public.

Don’t believe me? With the invention/discovery of the World Wide Web came also the discovery of background checks. It started out for the public to see who was living next door and around the corner. Now it has filtered into not only the work place but also housing units including what is known as Low Income or Section 8 Housing. To  top it off any person with a felony can not gain access to Section 8 Housing for the remainder of his or her life.  Thus any person, and I mean it could be your very own son or daughter, could never obtain a roof of their head unless s/he obtains help from a friend.

Is this fair to any person who has a felony record? Some may think so but it is not and it needs to stop before someone gets hurt or dies.

Are people with felonies being discriminated? The answer is yes. And now society has another case of Martin Luther King.  Rosa Parks and so forth. And thus, things need to change very quickly before it becomes to late for someone, somewhere.  What could happen you ask? Lets say a person with a felony conviction were disabled in one form or another. He or she very well may be taking medications and is seen by he doctor on regular basis. His one problem may not be getting to the doctors or to the pharmacy but where s/he could live in peace and without fear of reprisal. Thus. s/he needs to get into a low income housing unit but how to do so in this society?

There may be an answer and it comes from the very goal and vision of Thunderdome Ministry itself; A Christian campus that would serve as a halfway home for former inmates. I am not talking about dorms but actual houses very similar to the very one you may be living in at this point in time. Start up costs would run into the double digits and better. Perhaps  a more exacting projection would be around fifty million dollars. This would bring in the buying of 100 acres and building 4 bedroom ranch styled houses and a chapel with a learning center and classrooms.

  • Are felons discriminated against? Yes and sometimes even by ministries sad to say.
  • Can it be stopped? Yes
  • Will he government help? Doubtful
  • Is there an answer? Yes
  • What is he answer? Jesus

In Gods Word we see Him  posed at a door knocking. What people need to do is to open the door and allow Him inside. This means both the rich and poor, sick and healthy. bond or free.  We  know he answer and it is Jesus, but will you open you door to help another?

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave the drink?  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25: 34-40

My question to you is as follows:  will you help those Jesus called he least of these? Or will you sit on the sidelines and watch?

IF you desire to assist text me a 1-248-295-1365 and ask for my mailing address where you can send in your support.

Remember, they need the help of the very elect of Christ to keep from returning to prison.

Are felons discriminated? Yes,God forbid

. Is there hope ? Yes

Yours in Jesus

REPOST:Protecting the Wolverine

The following is being reposted due to its overwhelming demand. It is my hope that someone, if not everyone take action to protect the Wolverine let alone the Polar Bears and other animals of importance to nature.  Thee article has NOT been altered in any way.

On Friday  I was simply  channel surfing on my television when I caught grown men taking part in the most  gruesome act one could think of: they trapped and murdered a wolverine with a mere pistol at close range. At they end you could hear the men say that the wolverines coat would bring  around four hundred dollars, which makes this act nothing more than a senseless act of what I would classify as pure murder.RSCN0220 - Copy

Why is this so sad?  The only known wolverines in the state of Michigan is now in the Detroit Zoo in Oakland County Michigan. As far as the Department of Natural  Resources now knows the wild population in the state is at zero.

You, as a reader, may disagree with me on this  but here is how I see it: The Wolverines population is rapidly declining. Some of it is due in part to senseless acts as mentioned above. Thus, this animal known as a Wolverine  should be protected and helped so its populations can increase.

Why the people who shot that television series allowed the above mentioned situation to transpire is beyond myself unless they were as greedy as the killers of that poor creature.

What can you do to help?  I think the best thing first is education. Next Some Wolverines need to be transplanted into areas where the population is down. Next would be to impose hefty fines for anyone in the United States and Canada who hunt and trap these animals for a time frame of two hundred to three hundred years; by this time frame perhaps the creature should have time to increase its populations. Then lastly, impose hefty fines on those who accept Wolverine furs as any form of payment.

It is past time that the people  take a little effort and protect what we have around and about us. Think about this: what would the killers of a mere wolverine want to kill next for a few dollars?

Help protect not only the Wolverines of today but of those for ages to come. Let us not allow another Wolverine to be killed for ages to come!

Reference of Importance

The following is an except from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine

The wolverine, pronounced /ˈwʊlvərn/, Gulo gulo (Gulo is Latin for “glutton”), also referred to as glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae (weasels). It is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times its size.

The wolverine can be found primarily in remote reaches of the Northern boreal forests and subarctic and alpine tundra of the Northern hemisphere, with the greatest numbers in northern Canada, the U.S. state of Alaska, the Nordic countries of Europe, and throughout western Russia and Siberia. Their populations have experienced a steady decline since the 19th century in the face of trapping, range reduction and habitat fragmentation, such that they are essentially absent in the southern end of their European range. It is, however, estimated that large populations remain in North America and northern Asia. Wolverines are solitary animals.[2]
