Establish a House

A talk I gave in our Sacrament Meeting on March 18, 2012.

In His infinite wisdom, our Father in Heaven sent each of us here to earth to live in families. The idea of a family was no mistake. It wasn’t just some random set of coincidences that led man into families. Since the […]

The Case Against Term Limits

Lately, I have been pondering the issue of what can we do to keep our representatives in check, while giving them the constitutional powers that were granted to them. This is part one of the three part series on controlling the power of our representatives.

In the past couple of months, I have heard two […]

Why I am not a Libertarian?

There are more than one reason why I am not a Libertarian, however, today, I am going to discuss just one of them. In the future I may or may not post more reasons, but this one is in the front of my mind right now.

Because of my political leanings I read several Libertarian […]

We're Debt Free!

Two and a half years ago, my wife and I moved into our new home. After that move, we had one goal. That was to get rid of our consumer debt.

We started out by paying $700 extra on the one consumer loan that we had. It was a student loan that totalled somewhere near […]

Shadow Children and Government Control

I recently just finished the Shadow Children Series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. The first in the series is Among the Hidden. In this book Luke Gardner is the third born child to his parents in a society where parents are only legally allowed to have two children. This law is enforced by the death of […]

2 for 2

Okay, this is not about the recent Jazz wins. Sorry Jazz Fans, but I am not a big follower of Sports, except for baseball.

Instead I just wanted to brag a bit. Well, I don’t know if this is something to be proud of, because some times those who write Letters to the Editors can […]

Marriage and the Big G

Almost two years ago, my wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary by attending Education Week at Brigham Young University. Yeah, I wanted to do something more exciting like at a lake or on a cruise, but my wife won out. Good thing she did.

While I didn’t really want to go, there were a […]

Broken TV – Marriage

One more thought on bent and broken television before I move on. I was originally going to include this with my discussion of Without a Trace, but it didn’t seem to fit, and I now feel that it merits it’s own entry.

How many television dramas portray happily married couples?

As I am writing this […]

Broken TV – Without a Trace

I loved this show. A year ago if you had asked me what my favorite show on TV was I would have said the Amazing Race, but this was a close second.

However, it was about a year ago that this show started going down hill. I remember writing a letter to CBS telling them […]

Bent TV – CSI

I used to watch CSI. I probably gave it more time then it was worth during the first couple of years.

During that time, one thing consistently bothered me. Crime Scene Investigators don’t make arrests! Yet, Grisham always ended the show in glory, by being at the arrest and flaunting his glorious mind.

I […]
