I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country

Nathan Hale (before being hanged by the British, 22 September 1776)

From the Patriot Post:

Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers, a Democrat, has just taken the frivolous lawsuit to a new level: He is suing God. Chambers' suit seeks an injunction against God for causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines,devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects and the like." How about charging Chambers with asinine alliteration? His real reason for filing the suit, he says, is to prevent the state senate from passing bills aimed at limiting laughable lawsuits. "The Constitution requires that the courthouse doors be open, so you cannot prohibit the filing of suits,"chimes Chambers. "Anyone can sue anyone they choose, even God." Somehow,we don't think this proves him right. As The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto teased, "The good thing about suing God, too, is that you're unlikely to lose at trial. Eventually He always settles out of court."

This man is a thorn in Nebraska's side. He's been in the NE Senate since before I was born and is the reason that our politicians have just created term limits. Thankfully we won't have to put up with him much longer.

Joshua 1:6-9

6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
7 Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.
8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

This post was a little bit of everything, I guess. I really can't post too much about what's going on here because if I do I will be invading Mrs. O's privacy. Everything else that happens here is just normal stuff, like laundry and making lunch and babysitting! Ugh, I did at least five loads of laundry yesterday- all the dirty stuff that piled up from our little vacation to the beach.

Chambers isn't actuually in my district. But Chuck Hagel announced that he is retiring and we are also very happy about that! Maybe NE will get some really good men into office next year.
