Welcome to my little space on the internet.
Since 2005, I have been actively writing and blogging about my personal life, politics, and random events; as well as, my views on education, faith, and culture. Here you will find a smattering of some of those writings and my views of the world. Follow the links below.

Salmond: ‘No’ voters were ‘tricked’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-29296282
Just days after the referendum, we now know that the leadership in Westminster was willing to do just about anything or promise everything if Scotland said No. Of course why was the trun up to the referendum the necessary act to create these promises, Yes almost won. The Labour Party and the current cabinet have gravely underestimated how this would turn out. I fear a prolonged political argument, that will lay bare the falsehoods and empty promises of the past week, will be tangle Parliament for the next year. Scotland will eventually gain independence and join the EU as a greater equal to what will be left of the UK. European imperialism may not be dead but it is failing miserably. In addition, this provides, for the time being a look at the process of devolution in a peaceful manner.
My keenest wonder is what SNP leader Salmond has planned next.

Speak the truth all the time, everyday, and to everyone. Trust in the Lord and He will set you free
As a dad, gamer and geek, I say it needs to end. Drawing women out of proportion, touching up real life photos, busting out of brassieres for no good reason is simply ridiculous. I know sex sells but it also hurts the other 51% every time. It is almost impossible to share geek culture with my daughters with worrying that they become consumed by objectification.
Guys and gamers alike have to refuse to accept blatantly created games, comics and cartoons whose underlining themes include violence towards women. Creating characters based on the wants
needs of teenage boy fantasies is completely unacceptable and unenjoyable. The ephemeral nature of gaming has pushed me to the point that I no longer want to be in that works out even take my daughters into it.
Stop confusing games and comic books with porn!

What is important to see here is that Paul is not saying to be weak or to surrender one’s faith. Instead, we are to be the ones of peace by lifting up each and holding each other accountable. Seeking peace with one another is not simple, because fighting is what is used to divide us. We are to lift each other up out of the muck and mire; so that, the body as a whole is also lifted up.
http://bible.com/59/HEB12.14 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.
The Christian convert as God’s new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17) does not contain the power to persevere. Rather, the new creation contains the link to the one who daily provides the power to persevere, and that link is assured. Paul says, because it is sustained decisively by God, not man. This is why Paul insists, “God is faithful; he will surely do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:24; cf. 1 Corinthians 1:9).
Presidential speech writers need a history lesson and the President needs to learn how to lead. This is just ridiculous to be that mixed up or naïve.
