Friendship Games

The Olympics have not seen this much political theater since Lake Placid: The Mighty Ducks, yet to heap adoration on an envoy from a brutal regime led by an insane cockroach with nuclear ambitions is not cool:

We apologize 029

Valentine’s Day, Princess Candace & Shining Armor were all over Equestria Daily, but nowhere on our page.

Yeah,” I have done neither cleaning nor taxes this weekend, this three-day weekend, “is it too late now to say sorry?”

“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

When I recently maligned the Olympic Games, I apologized, “Here is what the abandoned Rio Olympic venues look like just 6 months later.”

But thanks be to God, (1 Corinthians 15:56-57)
who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

I don’t know, do you 038

Sometimes, but not too often, I wonder if I’m a bad person, especially after I say something carelessly; I feel a Word of the Day from Dictionary.com – spindrift – spray swept by a violent wind along the surface of the sea.

“Therefore you have no excuse,
O man, every one of you who judges.
For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself,
because you, the judge, practice the very same things. (Romans 2:1)”

“Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.

Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find a ground for complaint against Daniel with regard to the kingdom, but they could find no ground for complaint or any fault, because he was faithful, and no error or fault was found in him.

Then these men said, ‘We shall not find any ground for complaint against this Daniel unless we find it in connection with the law of his God.’ (Daniel 6:3-5)”

How can I invoke the name of Weir without mentioning entertaining items heard on the Word of the Day at Dictionary.com – inculcate – to implant by repeated statement or admonition?

Thursday I was listening to ‘Jonathan Weir’ and he was observing KMBZ would not be airing Trump’s acceptance speech because it has been pushed later.

There was talk about Rio de Janeiro, ‘where apparently first responders greet you at the airport to let you know that they will not be able to protect you, and people with no security experience are being given guns and one week before the opening of the the Olympic Games to learn their jobs.’

“For an overseer, (Titus 1:7-9) as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain,

but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.
