- While in the Navy, McCain crashed 4 jets, one resulting in his capture and being held for 5 years as a POW.
- McCain crashed a vehicle at the front gates of a Navy base that is being stifled by the Navy as to the exact details.
- McCain was involved in the crash of an S&L, resulting in the Keating 5 investigation by Congress, in which he was reprimanded as having "bad judgement".
- McCain has crashed the GOP with the selection of unvetted Sarah Palin for a running mate, that even some GOP supporters have said was "poor judgement".
- McCain crashed the bailout hearings in Washington, though he contributed nothing by "suspending his campaign".
It would certainly appear that John McCain crashes alot because of bad judgement. Is this someone that really needs to be in charge of this country while it is already under duress? I'm not sure if we can afford more of John McCain's bad judgement or crash and burn mentality.

He complained about the tile hurting his hip. I gave him a pillow to sit on. He complained about the height of the vanities hurting his back. I got a small footstool to raise him up. He complained about the sinks being to far back, he couldn't get the nuts on the bottom of the faucet. I put one on and bless her heart, my mother crawled under the sink and put the other on. (wish I had a camera for that.) He complained about drilling through the bottom of the cabinet and then the floor. I did that too. Then on top of all this, my father and I crawled under the house to run the hose from the dishwasher in the island to the sink while he stayed in the kitchen! He complained about the drains in the sink being toward the back of the basin and not in the center. He complained because he couldn't attach the top of the dishwasher to the underside of the granite counter tops. All the while, someone in the family was assisting him.
Finally, when all the complaining stopped and everything was done as far as he was concerned, he tallied up the bill. Over $400.00! Now I really don't consider that terribly high for 3 sinks, a dishwasher and an ice maker, if he had done it all himself and in one day. I asked my father after Ned the plumber left, as he was putting away his checkbook, " Did you deduct our services from the bill?"

One of Jesus' disciples asked (parapharsing)"What should they take away from his teachings?" He replied, " most importantly, Love, Faith, and Charity." When pressed further to chose the most important, He stated,"Love". Maybe some of those so called, family value Christian types should read their Bibles again.

- feelings of hopelessness
- lack of joy in things
- withdrawal and isolation
- thoughts of death or suicide
- feelings of worthlessness
- loss or increase in appetite
- change in sleep patterns
If several of these symptoms are present to varying degrees and lasting longer than 2 weeks, you should certainly consider a visit to your doctor to discuss it. Depression can rob you of your joy and even your life if untreated. The occasional bad day or even couple of days isn't cause for concern. If these feelings are present, with no obvious outside cause, then please consult a professional.
There are several types of depression. Only a doctor can properly diagnose which is troubling you. Some only require some time and a sympathetic ear. Other types require medications and long term therapy to develop strategies and behaviors to help cope. But there is help. You are not alone.

There is no degrees of sin. No one is without sin. No one except God can judge a person's sin. Those that say homosexuality is a sin do not have the context correct. Yes the Bible says it is an abomination. It also says "wearing cloth of two fibers" is an abomination. It also says "eating shellfish" is an abomination. Are these people saying they are without sin? Are these people saying they have the same right as God to determine what a sin is and how it will be judged? If you truly hope to be doing God's work, you should understand the context. A great mind will search for truth on it's own. A small mind will believe what it is told.
A great website to help shed light on these issues is http://www.wouldjesusdiscriminate.com/. If you truly consider yourself to be a Christian, then you owe it to yourself to learn and understand what that truly means. You then owe it to God to put it into practice.
- working out
- finishing school
- make new friends
- being more domestic
- being around other people
- being involved
It's a small start. But a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. These are mine.
