Sex, the root of all evil?

I Timothy 6:10 (Bible) says... "For the love of money is the root of all evil."

However, I would say to you that the love of money is not the only vice that is propelling this generation to possibly go down in history as one of the most vile and disgusting generations of American history.

Could it be that the love of sex is now the root of all evil?

Unfortunately, the secret sexual lives of people holding prominent postions in government is fast becoming the most disgusting and aberrant abuse of power.

These secret lives are becoming public knowledge now, and I fear that there are many more scandals to surface before this nation, especially mainstream America, begins to scream our outrage and let them know that we are disgusted by their actions and refuse to accept this behavior as status quo.

It matters. Yes it does.

If you cannot govern your own body, how can you govern a body of people?

What kind of mind can rationally take the risks that these people have taken with their reputations? What kind of father can risk humiliating his daughters in such a vile manner? If a father has no more love for his own daughter than this, that he would choose to indulge himself no matter the potential consequences, then how in the world can he be trusted with our future?

John Wesley's commentary on the scripture above gives, in my opinion, a more accurate translation...

6:10 Love of money - Commonly called prudent care of what a man has. Is the root - The parent of all manner of evils. Which some coveting have erred - Literally, missed the mark. They aimed not at faith, but at something else. And pierced themselves with many sorrows - From a guilty conscience, tormenting passions, desires contrary to reason, religion, and one another. How cruel are worldly men to themselves!

Fornication is certainly not new. We have endured such scandals from the Kennedy's, Bill Clinton, national and local servants "coming out of the closet" and now Spitzer and McGreevey. We have also suffered at the hands of the religious hypocrites such as Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart and the awful molestation of children from those in places of authority. We cannot even trust our school teachers.

I, for one, am tired of this nonsense. These people are selfish, self-serving individuals with not one iota of moral character deserving of their positions. Once such a postion is abused, I would love to see them brought down to the lowest of humanity. I only feel sorry for their families.

I do not blame Hillary Clinton in any way for her husband's abuse of power. It should not enter into her candidacy for president. That is not fair.

But that's another subject altogether.

My point is that these seemingly powerful and influential people are apparently lacking integrity and character. We have been deceived and we must learn how to appropriately interview and research persons who are seeking to serve our nation in such capacities as senators, congressmen and women, governors and presidential positions, including cabinet members.

I would love to see the media challenge these candidates on their moral beliefs.

Let's not wait for the scandal, let's nip it in the bud.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
