Judge asserts right to raise my children

I resent this. Cocaine energy drink has been banned in Texas. (Not by passing a law, of course. By a judge.) Why do I resent this? I don't like the idea of drinking something named after a harmful drug. I don't take drugs. I do drink energy drinks, but I wouldn't drink this one. It honestly scares me. :) My kids wouldn't be allowed to drink any energy drinks at all.

So why do I resent it? Because I'm not raising my kids in a commune. Judges are supposed to make decisions about the law, not make decisions about how we should all raise our children. That judge asserted a right over my kids which he does not have, and that's wrong.

Once upon a time those who were in charge of this country made decisions based on liberty. Now the decisions are made based on what's best for "us".

Folks, "we" are not in this together, and I'm not going to allow you to raise my kids. And in turn, I'm not going to even attempt to raise yours.

The Cocaine energy drink people did not do anything wrong. They came up with a product which I find disgusting. They are not ambushing people in alleys and forcing them to buy this product. Instead they are just offering to sell it. If you don't like it, don't buy it. The Cocaine energy drink people are not your slaves. You don't have the right to tell them what to do. They exist for themselves and for God, not for you. They've chosen to serve a market. If you're not a part of that market, it's none of your business. They are not slaves to society. But this judge has enslaved them.

Manstealing is a sin.


Please don't forward or listen to "gas out" emails

The "boycott gas and hurt the evil oil companies" emails are circulating again.

This idea won't work. It's rooted in economic fallacies.

We're being conditioned by a conspiracy to covet what the oil companies own. The conspiracy is not headed up by human beings. Guess who has a vested self-interest in teaching us to use covetousness as a basis for our personal decisions and public policy?

See things clearly: when you're thinking that somebody is unjust because they won't sell what they own to you at the price you want, are you thinking like Jesus? Not according to Matthew 20, where Jesus didn't even bother to prove the principle He asserted in verse 15 because it was supposed to be obvious: "Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own?" What's the Bible word for wanting what you do not have? Covetousness. Envy. See James 4:2. Don't dress it up pretty and pretend it's noble. It's ugly.
