IF I'M ELECTED PRSEIDENT...
Immediately after assuming office, I will order all US planes to simply bomb I-40 between Oklahoma City and Albuquerque, and yeah, that includes Amarillo, or as it is translated, "Yellow."
Oh, and I'd ask Carlos Delgado if he knew who would come and defend the country if he were playing baseball and terrorists attacked the SkyDome. Um, yeah, that would be that foreign country he's so upset about because they're bombing goats off the Puerto Rican coast or something like that. Someone once said that yeah, the United States is the whipping boy right now around the world, but when something happens somewhere, they come running to us and beg us to make the bad people go away.
Of course, that is also the weakness of the United States, too, and it's showing itself in the world today. We are not the world's savior, and hopefully one day, the country will realize that before the real Savior, who only needs to ask the Father and the nations will be his, becomes angry and we perish in the way.
The world needs the gospel, not the United States Armed Forces.
Oh, and I'd also bomb U.S. 95 between Las Vegas and Fallon, with the slight exception of Hawthorne and Walker lake. :)

Well, I have returned from vacation. I would have been back sooner, but I decided to return to Las Vegas for a couple of days. Yeah, nothing like going to a city that was 112 both days. Hehe.
Just some thoughts over the vacation that I heard about, all mentioning anti-war thoughts.
1. Elton John, Sir Elton, regarding your claim about censorship in America if you speak out against the war: With all due respect, and I love your music, but just shut up. You are ignorant, sir. You know about as much about the American political landscape as I know about carrying a tune. Yeah, there's a lot of censorship in America if you speak out against the war. Um, where is Fat Butt...er, I mean, Michael Moore's movie on the box office list? I believe it hit $100 million? There's a book out on the market that shows a plan on how to kill President Bush. Yeah, uh-huh. Simply because you sing a song doesn't qualify you as an expert in politics. Give us the examples of censorship that you're decrying. You know what?You won't find any. You know what you will find? You'll find people who are disagreeing with others. You'll find people like Phil Hendrie calling Michael Moore a liar, and then having the guts to back it up and show evidence. That's not censorship. That's freedom of speech, and I have that same freedom to tell you to shut up, go back into the studio, and try to find that spark that brought us Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy cause you lost that magic a long time ago.
2. Whoever the lame guy is who compared the landscape over Bush's war and Iraq to McCarthyism: Um, sorry guys, but no one is being dragged before Congress. Call me when that happens.
3. Linda Rondstadt, see #1, but son't be so stupid as to insult the Alladin...while you're performing in the Alladin.
4. Carlos Delgado, you play baseball for a living. That doesn't qualify you to be informed. Apparantly, you said that the Iraq war was the stupidest war ever or something like that? Gee, I'm sorry, but I seem to remember that little war in 1982 when Argentina decided they would administer rule over the Falkland Islands...without telling the British. Now **THAT** was a stupid war. Yeah, you have the right to say what you feel, but don't go crying when people ask you to back up what you say.
Yeah, it's good to be back.
Oh, and by the way, regarding that I-70 sign, apparantly, there is a "Columbus" in Indiana, but that doesn't explain other instances I saw. For instance,while driving along U.S. 52 between Cincinnati and Huntington, every turn off that crossed the Ohio River had the city, and then KY. It's like...NO DUH!!! What other state could it be? I mean, did Idaho suddenly annex parts of the southern coast of the Ohio River, and we need the KY to distinguish between them?

Still on vacation, right now writing from the State that gave us godly men like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. I must say that the trip has been great so far. My other destination was Omaha to visit a couple friends there. It was a most enjoyable time, and I hope to see them again soon in he next few months. By the way, I-70 from the Colorado-Utah border to Denver is one of the greatest testimonies to God's creation. It was so serene, so pretty that it was one of those "How could you look at this and believe in evolution" moment. Seriously, being up where I-70 passes Vail Summit...what can I say?
There is one thing I wonder about, though. What is it about putting the State name next to the destination city on interstate signs. For instance, going through Indianapolis, after thinking, "This is it, this is it. This is life, the one you get, so go and have a ball . (OK, I aleady established I watch too much tv. :) Anyway...what is it with this? I approach I-70 and it says "70 EAST COLUMBUS OH." What? People in Indiana can't figure out that Columbus is in Ohio? I mean...even on I-40 in Needles, the next destination sign doesn't say "KINGMAN AZ". I-35 didn't say "MINNEAPOLIS MN". Yes, I did see a sign for Louisville on I-80 in Nebraska, but sommon sense seemed to dicate it wasn't he one in Kentucky, especially when it was on a state route. Oh well, one of my unusual pet peeves. Sorry. :)
Anyway, should be back home soon. Good bye, and God bless.

I found out long ago
It's a long way down The Holiday Road
Jack be nimble; Jack be quick
Take a ride on a West Coast kick
I've come back long ago
It's a long way down The Holiday Road
--Words and Lyrics by Lindsay Buckingham
Yup, going on vacation. Should be back in 3 weeks or so. Take care, and God bless all.
