Crazy Thoughts

Most of you that know me know that I rarely watch the news.  My newscast is Sportscenter.  On the local newscast, I don’t like watching anything normally but weather and sports.  Bad news gets to us.  It’s not healthy to watch.

Let me start by saying:  Guns do not kill people!  The people who put the ammunition in them do!  We cannot protect ourselves from every scenario out there.  Trust in God and those you know and everything will work out for the best.  God has a plan, no matter how messed up it may look today.

I know the situation in Connecticut was a tragedy.  I am sorry for all those who were affected by it.  I will pray for their families.

According to www.childhelp.org five children die each day from abuse.

According to www.bread.org everyday 16,000 children die worldwide from hunger.

According to www.worldchildcancer.org approximately 100,000 children die each year from cancer.

Where’s the call to ban all the stuff that causes these things?  Do you take away all children from their parents just because five die each day from abuse?  Do we mandate lower portions at restaurants so there are fewer leftovers and in turn less food being thrown away?

It’s Merry Christmas!  Not Happy Holidays.  Jesus is the reason for the season!  So Merry Christmas to you and yours from me and my family.

If you are from St. Louis and you haven’t been to Pappy’s Smokehouse, there is something wrong with you.  Get down there and try them out.

And to lighten things up, Goofy is the only one of the Fab Five Disney Characters we can believe that has had sex.  He has a son named Max.  Also, prove to me that Mickey Mouse is not an orphan.

I write this knowing well that I may piss someone off.  I am the writer of this blog.  You can comment on this below if you like, but my guess most of you will just read this, roll their eyes, and move on.  Things affect people differently.  As the song goes ‘God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!’
