Leftist Liberal Lunacy

Hold on a minute! The movie “Death Wish” is being called racist because it is based in Chicago?! Others cry about it being a “dangerous” thing to depict a white person in Chicago with a gun exacting revenge on murderers and rapists. (See news article)

These comments are, of course, referring to the fact that Chicago is the murder capital of America; and the fact that these killings are mostly black-on-black. So somehow this makes it both racist and dangerous to have a white actor play this part.

Well excuse me, you self-righteous, liberal hypocrites. You actually believe that this story about a white vigilante is more scary than Chicago reality? Isn’t the facts far more scary? Like there has been more than 2,200 shootings so far in Chicago this year, of which approximately 90% of the assailants were black. But no, you have to say a lone white guy is the horrible, dangerous, racist!

I certainly don’t condone vigilanteism. But it’s just a movie (a remake at that). Death Wish is basically a modern day Western, and in this context of fiction I believe that the character that Bruce Willis is playing is the good guy, albiet misguided. But in the hyper PC world we live in today, you can’t depict anyone as a bad guy unless they are white.

You pathetic, whimpy, snowflake-like liberal writers hiding behind your New York office desks: especially because of you I am definitely going to go see this movie!

Chased By God’s Blessings

King David wrote “Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in His house forever” (Psalms 23:6). That is just how good God is.

God’s grace, goodness, and mercy follows us wherever we go. It follows us even into the hell that we create for ourselves. While all others only see our terrible choices and mistakes, God follows us into them, and brings his blessings even there.

God will never kick us out of His house. If we desire, we can remain in His presence forever.

When we dwell in His house, God even exchanges the very sins that we commit, and creates blessings for us from them! He takes our disasters and turns them into blessings. In the middle of our scandals and messes, He brings beauty and peace.

Glad To Be in the U.S.

We have our constitution. It works to prevent this kind of trashing of rights:

Fined for not taking off his shoes

Flight Perspectives

I celebrated my 25th anniversary of obtaining my pilot license this spring, quietly, in my mind anyway. Although it is perhaps something to take some pride in, I also don’t really like the fact that it means I’m getting old.

Basically I have lived the same number of years (plus 1) since I achieved getting my wings as I did before it. That scares me, because I thought back then that I had been living a long time, but now looking back these past 25 years seems to have been but a blink of the eye!

This is a picture taken in the spring of 1992 with me and my flight instructor, Tom Reese. Tom owned the airport, and had been a flight instructor during WWII. I remember how I felt on top of the world flying that little airplane. I recall thinking about how old Tom was, and what all flight experiences he might have had. Now I’m just 20 some years away from being what his age was back then. It’s so cliche, but how time flies!
