Core values of Bullock

“A people without religion in the end will find that it has nothing to live for.” T.S. Eliot, 1919.

The Latin root of “religion” is “religare” which means “to bind.” Today in our time, we are engaged in a vast telling spiritual warfare for the soul of America, of who we are, why, and how regarding life and death, what we value, honor about these massive realities. Sex, power, and politics are part of the “binding” ligaments.

A nation’s collective will is its, heart, and what it “ binds” and “feeds on” mentally, whether good or evil, honor or depravity. Do we now feed on poisonous, swirling-down societal values as sex, money, supine politics without regard to morality?

Specially, our esteemed Montana Governor, Steve Bullock, apparently a good politician running now for president who “likes his kids” is quite sanguine about infanticide as one central plank of his Democratic Party: and the press praises him generally as a “moderate.” This is a “tell” on him, and is probably a “doubling down” on the Democratic Party “moving the needle” in the coming presidential election. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam likewise received such magnanimous treatment as a “pass” for his own approval of doing that regarding babies born of botched abortions. I find that quite interesting about the core values of Bullock, Northam, the Democratic Party, and what America has become, and is “bound unto.”

The coming presidential election with its Democratic Party “baptized” “reproductive rights” plank is going to be illuminating as a core and central issue in order to define and determine exactly and more precisely what kind of nation, people (and real, as opposed to apparent Christianity) we really have as a “mirror” we are truly holding up before ourselves, before each other, and certainly before the one who cannot deceive. Nor be deceived.

Student-built home

After visiting the Corporate Drive house built by the local high school students I can only say “congratulations” to the students, the instructors, the designers and everyone involved with the project. Hopefully the experience will lead to many offers of employment from local contractors should the students with to pursue this career. Also, thanks to the many volunteers who donated time and energy to the road cleanup. It looks fantastic.
