words of wisdome from my dad

So, if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "Under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same Government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a Government installation, then, so be it.

And if "under God" is eliminated from our Pledge of Allegience, so be it.

And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it..

I say, "so be it," because I am a law abiding US citizen.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

I would like to think that those people have the American People's best interests at heart.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?

Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot Post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and it's employees should
participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our Government is eliminating from so many facets of American life.

I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."

In fact.... I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshiping God....) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day. What do you all think?

If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin once again, to represent the majority of ALL of the American people.

Interesting commentary, but i would have to say that most people are as smart as the officials that they elect.

Why is it so important though to have "God" on a dollar bill?

Thats one to think about.

I think to it is as important to take it off as it is important to keep it on.


What is on a dollar bill does not effect the morality of the nation though. It is a reminder of what the Nation was founded on, but really means nothing more than that to me. I think that is were the problem lies. These verses tell of foundation of the country. What the founders thought. They don't say. You should believe in God or your not American. There is a difference. Over time religeons and thoughts change. That is just natural process. If people think that because the words are on the dollar bill then we should all believe in the same thing now that is un American as anything.

I think they should take off the spider webs and the Pyramid Eye thing because they are so spookie, but that is as likely to happen as replacement or substitution of words in the Pledge or the Dollar bill.
