Only God can play God

Does the government have to right to decide who lives and who dies? Does the government have the right to decide who is useful and who is not?

Random Thoughts on Today’s Headlines

Reading through the various news feeds and sources from today I feel like I am in some kind of a time warp. I admit I haven’t been keeping quite as close an eye on the news as I once did, mainly because I was afraid it was going to make my head explode. But today I felt that old familiar urge and here is what I found.

As I mentioned in my last post, I have had plenty of time lately to contemplate the mysteries of life, the universe, and other important things. If you recall, last time I was wondering about what dogs think. This led to a somewhat logical next step, that being, what do dogs talk about? Now, I don’t mean with their owners, that is obvious to anyone who has spent any significant time with a dog, but rather when they talk to each other.
