I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE HERE IS MY PLATFORM:

(1) Press 1 for English is immediately banned. English is the
official language, speak it or wait at the border until you can.

(2) We will immediately go into a two year isolationist posture to
straighten out the country’s attitude. NO imports, no exports. We will
use the ‘Walmart’ policy ‘If we ain’t got it, you don’t need it.’

(3) When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it.

(4) All retired military personnel will be required to man one of our
many observation towers on the southern border. (six month tour) They
will be under strict orders not to fire on SOUTHBOUND aliens.

(5) Social security will immediately return to its original state. If
you didn’t put nuttin in, you ain’t getting nuttin out. The president nor
any other politician will not be able to touch it.

(6) Welfare - Checks will be handed out on Fridays at the end of the 40
hour school week and the successful completion of urinalysis and a
passing grade.

(7) Professional Athletes —Steroids - The FIRST time you check
positive you’re banned for life.

(8) Crime - We will adopt the Turkish method, the first time you steal,
you lose your right hand. There is no more life sentences, if convicted
you will be put to death by the same method you chose for your victim,
gun, knife, strangulation, etc.

(9) One export will be allowed, Wheat, The world needs to eat. A bushel
of wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.

(10) All foreign aid using American taxpayer money will immediately
cease, and the saved money will pay off the national debt and ultimately
lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we’ll ask the
American people if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each
citizen can make the decision whether it’s a worthy cause.

(11) The Pledge of Allegiance will be said every day at school and every
day in Congress.

(12) The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies,
sporting events, outings, etc.

Sorry if I stepped on anyone’s toes but a vote for me will get you
better than what you have, and better than what you’re gonna get.

Thanks for listening, and remember to write in my name on the ballot in November.

God bless America

Maxine (courtesy, Amy)

Titles And Responsibilities
If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. —John 13:14

Research conducted by a leading compensation technology firm found that among employees planning to leave their companies, a majority felt they were underpaid. Fewer than 20 percent of them, however, were receiving less than the industry standard for their duties.

Bill Coleman, of Salary.com, believes that many unhappy workers are overtitled rather than underpaid. Some companies give employees lofty titles even though their job responsibilities have not increased. In time, employees feel they deserve more money than their actual duties merit. “When it comes to salary,” Coleman says, “it’s what you do, not what you’re called, that counts.”

It’s interesting how Jesus dealt with the issue of titles and responsibilities. During the Last Supper, He performed the task of a lowly servant by washing His disciples’ feet, setting the stage for His astonishing statement about humility: “You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet” (John 13:13-14).

Christ the Lord set the example for all who would follow Him, confirming that it’s not what we’re called, but what we do that counts.

When Jesus took a servant’s towel—
His honor set aside—
He humbly showed us how to serve,
And how to conquer pride. —Sper

The more we serve Christ, the less we will serve self.


Bible in One Year: Isaiah 7–9; Proverbs 22:1-8
