Plus One – I Don’t Care Lyrics June 6, 2007

Filed under: Christianity,Comparison,Life,Random,Ranting,Religion — isaacme @ 2:54 pm

Could it be yesterday
I coulda swore the same thing happened just the other day
Put on the spot
Now what am I gonna say
If I tell them who You are will they think that I’m insane?
Do I really care?

Well yes and no, maybe so
Cause if they don’t think You’re real how will they ever know
So I won’t stop
Cause even if they laugh at me
It doesn’t change a thing about what I believe
(What I believe yeah)

I don’t care what it takes
I don’t care who it shakes
I don’t care what they say
I’m gonna do it Your way
Even if I’m afraid
Don’t wanna make You look fake
I don’t care about anything
It’s not about me

You make me feel secure
You’ve given my your word and now I know I’m sure
I was so messed up
Like a wheel you turned around my fate
When I thought you were just something up in outer space
But that’s not the case

You’re more real to me
Than what they make you out to be on the TV
Can ya turn me up
‘Cause you know we’re getting serious
When we talk about the invisible it’s clear to us (so clear to us)

I don’t care about the things that used to keep me far away from you
Left me so confused
I don’t care about the things that used to fill me up with so much doubt
I’ll turn it inside out

So if they start to wonder
and they start to stare
You know it don’t matter cause
I don’t care

Ever notice how so many road signs have bad grammar? I mean come on


Drive slowly

  Hello! It’s slowly

     Speed limit 

“Well Officer I thought that by speed limit you meant I had to go at LEAST 75. Your not really going to give me a ticket for going 90 are you?”







Pets on leash

So if the pets are on a leash why are you warning me about them. I would hope the owner would be able to control a leashed animal.



Now that was random.

It ain’t over ‘till it’s over. May 27, 2007

           There’s been a lot of talk that the Republican’s don’t have a chance this presidential election. In-between switching control in both the house and the senate and an unpopular war, things aren’t looking so good for Republicans. However there maybe hope. People are beginning to wonder, “What in the world is the democratic agenda anyway?” They don’t really seam to have one. Democrat’s have barely any real agenda; all they can talk about is how bad Republicans are, but America is noticing this. According to the pew research centre, only 37% of Americans approve of the job Democrats have done since entering office. When the Republicans took control in 1995, 59% of American’s said that they kept their promises; today, only 40% of Americans think the Democrats have kept their promises. What are the democrat’s promises? Pull out of a war, but who know how. Raise taxes. Gravel at the U.N.’s feet. Force people to buy cars that get from 0-60 in two days [maybe, that’s if the wind is with them]. Now that the dems are in control people are going “ok, now what.” Republicans haven’t lost yet. It’s time to make a stand.  


Rudy is a scary man May 25, 2007

Today I came across a news article in the Washington Post talking about Rudy Giuliani’s [a 2008 republican presidential candidate] liberal stance on a “woman’s right to choose.” The author of this article seams to be very liberal and yet he makes an amazingly good point. Here is an exert from that article [read the whole article here]. The article is talking about Rudy at this point. 




His argument comes down to this: “I hate abortion,” which is “morally wrong.” But “people ultimately have to make that choice. If a woman chooses that, that’s her choice, not mine. That’s her morality, not mine.” 



But the question naturally arises: Why does Giuliani “hate” abortion? No one feels moral outrage about an appendectomy. Clearly he is implying his support for the Catholic belief that an innocent life is being taken. And here the problems begin. 


How can the violation of a fundamental human right be viewed as a private matter? Not everything that is viewed as immoral should be illegal; there are no compelling public reasons to restrict adultery, for example, or to outlaw sodomy. But when morality demands respect for the rights of a human being, those protections become a matter of social justice, not just personal or religious preference 


All I can say is RIGHT ON. I don’t believe this author is pro-life, but at least he sees the idiocy of believing that it’s ok to kill a human. If you think about it, believing that killing a human is a personal choice is way scarier than believing that an abortion kills a bunch of cells.


English class is over May 24, 2007

English class is over!

My Wednesday English class is now over. Part of me is very exited that I’ll have more time, but part of me is very sad. I get VERY attached to ritual/routine. I have no idea why. I’m just very emotional that way. I’m also going to miss spending three plus hours with my friends every. However this will now give me time to study for the math placement test for college [a task I desperately need to do]. I hopefully will also have more time now to post on my blog [in case you haven’t noticed it’s been rather neglected lately.] Below is my last essay for English class. Because I was busy this week preparing for finals in English, it’s not my best. 


Why You Should Plan Your Day
      The Bible vividly describes our lives as a vapor that appears for a short while then vanishes. Clearly our time is valuable and should be used sagaciously. Planning your day allows you to spend your valued time productively, intelligently, and prudently. As you mature, you should schedule breaks in the middle of the day to alleviate stress and increase productivity. By planning ahead, you will be able to assign apropos time segments for these breaks. If practicing music is not important to you, you may wait until evening to pull out your instrument. However, you will not be able to practice after your younger siblings have gone to bed. Planning your day allows you to think of conflicts like this before it is too late to do anything about them. This is planning intelligently. Have you ever neglected to complete a particularly important task? You were probably not being prudent with your time. By planning ahead, you will be able to prudently decide what activities you need to finish and which ones you will not have time to accomplish. Planning your day allows you to productively, intelligently, and prudently spend your time.


Jesus as light May 17, 2007

Filed under: Christianity,Comparison,paper,Religion — isaacme @ 4:45 am

      Without the sun’s light, life could not exist; without the light of the knowledge of Jesus Christ, we could not have eternal life nor could we be reflectors of God’s light. Having been veiled from us by the god of this age, God’s truth was disclosed when Jesus Christ shone his light through this world’s darkness and illuminated himself to us. Now that we are followers of the truth, others should see Christ being mirrored through us by our alertness and self control. As believers, our aim should no longer be to glorify ourselves by living lives of craftiness and disobedience to the Word of God, but our ambition should be to praise our Father in heaven by being reflectors of His light of truth. This truth is the knowledge of eternal life through Jesus Christ. We must always remember that we are only mirrors of God’s light; the light does not come from us but from God. Before we were saved, we were in utter darkness. Without Jesus now, we would still be trapped in darkness. God is the genuine, perfect, and necessary light of truth for whom we are reflectors.
