Better Not Drag a Dead Horse Down Young Street on Sunday or Smoke Weed if You want to Be the Prime Minister of Canada


Many conservatives have been very vocal about the criminal act committed by Justin Trudeau. What Criminal act was that ? Pot smoking. one commenter on CTV’s website wrote  “pot smoking is a crime, that is not merely a characterization or opinion. It is a categorical fact. You can minimize it or oppose it all you want, but it’s still a criminal offence [sic] , period.”

The fact is they are right it is a crime at the momment however so is cheating on your tax forms, not signaling your lane changes, swearing in public, picking trilliums, skinny dipping, smoking in school bathrooms drinking before the age of 18, littering. and for some strange reason dragging a dead horse down Young Street on Sunday. I don’t need to minimize the offense it can’t get any more minimal than it already is.

 
I once saw the current prime Minister commit a crime just as horrendous as this. I once saw Stephen Harper walk diagonally across a road in Ottawa (not at a corner) that is Jay Walking and is illegal in Ottawa we better charge him for that.

Horse’s Behinds are Not Always Full of %^&#$


I have always wanted to use that phrase and now is the most appropriate time. Don Cherry AKA the sports worlds biggest Horse’s behind, has finally said something I agree with

“I don’t believe women should be in the male dressing room,” said Cherry on his weekly Coach’s Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada. “You want men in the dressing room with women?” asked Cherry.

Personally I think that News people in the locker-room just cheapens the sport. A number of Hockey teams used to require athletes to wear a suit when talking with the media. That gave sports class, or at least more class than some sweaty grunt wearing nothing more than a jock.

What Some People Google


Just a quick note. Someone found my Blog by Googling “volunteer work waste of time”.

Who ever you are just so you know, the article that drew you here was on the importance of volunteering for the right reason. ( https://billarends.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/10-bad-reasons-to-become-a-volunteer-or-why-selfishness-has-no-place-in-volunteering/)

If you think volunteering is a waste of your time you need to look closely at your values because frankly….    THEY SUCK !

What is Respect


Good day All

This originated as a response to a friend’s Facebook Question on Parenting. which asked, in relation to the call to respect our parents and elders, “Do we respect people because the inherently deserve respect or because they have earned our respect?”

I tend to think that we don’t really understand the concept of respect as it applies to parents and elders.

There are many definitions of respect the two that are often confused are the respect of person and the respect of position both are very different. One is reverence and one is deference. Deference to a right, privilege, privileged position, or someone or something considered to have certain rights or privileges. Not that the person respected is always right but they have been placed in authority. To Respect your elders in the Biblical term means to defer to them. In Ephesians 6:1-4 it outlines that respect is a two way street while children are to defer to their parents Parents are called to not provoke their children.To create a mutual bond. In today’s society we don’t get that the duty of a parent is to instruct a child to do what is right for the child and thus you are proactively given the authority to make decisions for them which they are called to respect.. The problem is if the parent was never instructed then the whole thing falls apart. While the reverence (respect) is earned Authority (respect) is a policy that is proven to work in most cases. However if the parent fails in the task of parenting (revokes the Anger of the child) the right of respect can be removed. Away from parents to “elders” this falls under the Christian duty to be passive. We are called to defer to all authority including Caesar” (the state) and our enemies. Again we are back to the idea of a selfless (https://billarends.wordpress.com/2013/01/12/the-best-of-all-possible-worlds-or-just-a-long-boring-ramble-on-christianity-selfishness-selflessness-and-politics/) That is my 2 cents worth (or nickle now the penny is gone)

Ephesians 6:1-4

English Standard Version (ESV)

Children and Parents

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
