I’m Worried If Trump Triumphs?

I'm afraid Donal Trump is going to be president of the United States of America. It almost nauseates me saying it. I have blogged about this months before. Back then, I didn't think it could happen. Now, polls show he has gone from having no chance to win against Hilary Clinton in the general election to being tied with her. He's got the momentum. He's like a steam roller heading straight for White House, and Hilary Clinton is in his way. Look out Hilary! She says she won't do any mud slinging … [Read more...]

Should the Apostles’ Creed Have the Phrase “Descended into Hell”?

Gene Veith has a patheos blog on the Evangelical Channel named Cranach The Blog of Veith. On May 12, 2016, he posted "Deleting 'He descended into Hell' from the Apostles' Creed." He informs therein that in church history some Methodists and other Christians have recited the Apostle's Creed in their gatherings, but omitted the phrase about Jesus descending into hell. Veith objects to this by saying that if you are going to associate with historical Christian doctrine, you should include it. I … [Read more...]

Israelis Celebrate Statehood while Palestinians Despair with Nakba

I am for the existence of the State of Israel. I think it is a just concept for Diaspora Jews who suffered so much while living for centuries in Gentile lands. But I also am equally for the Palestinian people. So, I am not a respecter of persons, and I don't God is either. I say this even though he chose the people of Israel to perform a certain task among the nations--to be a testimony to him. Therefore, I believe Palestinians are entitled to their own land and nation just as much as Israeli … [Read more...]

Republishing an Old Peanuts Cartoon with Me in It Is Problematic

Peanuts Collection republishes old Peanuts cartoons in some Sunday newspapers across our land. (See http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts.) Today, on May 15 2016, they republished one with me, MLB baseball player and television announcer Joe Garagiola, and hockey star Bobby Hull in it. (See below) It's been done before, such as May 15, 2005, in such newspapers as the Chicago Tribune. I forget what was the original year it was published--it must have been in the early 1970s.I didn't deserve being … [Read more...]

Day Three of the 2016 PGA Tour Players Championship

Jason Day continued his fine play today, finishing the third round of the Players Championship with a four shot lead. But it wasn't easy. He made two double bogeys the front nine. But the long hitter hung in there. For example, he hit three wood and eight iron to the 536 yard, par five, 16th hole, with over half of the green surrounded by water. But he missed his eight foot eagle putt to still register a birdie.The golf course completely changed from the first two days of play. Even though … [Read more...]

Second Day of 2016 PGA Tour Players Championship

Today was the second round of the PGA Tour's Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass (Stadium Course) in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the home of the headquarters of the PGA Tour.

Early inclement weather today caused a temporary delay that led to the round being unfinished due to darkness. The following are … [Read more...]
