Still alive

Hey ya'll, I'm still alive, but I haven't been blogging recently, as you've noticed.
Thanks for bearing wtih me, I've got a bazillion thoughts bouncing around I have to put together in a coherent fashion to post, but I'm still here.
I'll get back in rhythm soon, but here's a wonderful example of the staggering corruption the United States is now swimming in with these corporate bailouts and federalization of the markets.

Independent: "Up to 10,000 staff at the New York office of the bankrupt investment bank Lehman Brothers will share a bonus pool set aside for them that is worth $2.5bn (£1.4bn), Barclays Bank, which is buying the business, confirmed last night.

The revelation sparked fury among the workers' former colleagues, Lehman's 5,000 staff based in London, who currently have no idea how long they will go on receiving even their basic salaries, let alone any bonus payments. It also prompted a renewed backlash over the compensation culture in global finance, with critics claiming that many bankers receive pay and rewards that bore no relation to the job they had done.

I just heard today that the our govt is calling for taxpayer money to bail some corporations out. !!

I saw a sticker on a car today that said something like this:

"A government that is big enough to give you anything you want is big enough to take everything you have"

Welcome back. Knowing that your sabbaticals from blogging are usually the result of mission trips, or in this case, a mission of mercy to help people in need, does nothing but raise my admiration and bolster my faith in your generation.

We'll keep praying that God will use you mightily in the hard times ahead that are facing all Americans.
