Truly Caring About Teen Suicides

by Vince

Jim Swilley, a pastor of a megachurch in Georgia, comes out. His interview is worth watching.

“As a father, thinking about your 16-, 17-year-old killing themselves, I thought somebody needed to say something,” he told WSB TV in Atlanta. “I know all the hateful stuff that’s being written about me online, whatever. To think about saving a teenager, yeah, I’ll risk my reputation for that.”

Of course, someone labels him “unclean”. Remind me again which century we are living in, the 1st or 21st?

Health Care Reform Quote of the Day

by Vince

“Had congressional Republicans taken pragmatic steps on health reform between 1994 and 2008, PPACA wouldn’t have happened. President Bush’s reform of the tax exclusion for employer-provided health insurance alone would have made a significant difference, as would his plan for giving the states greater control over Medicaid. If you believe that the 111th Congress made many bad calls, Republicans in previous years deserve much of the blame. Major policy shifts are rare. But when it rains, it pours.” ~ Reiham Salam

I have said this, in some wording or another, before. All of those years with NOTHING to show for and now you want to keep the status quo going until change can be revealed “another time”?

Back to the Schoolroom

by Vince

It’s Monday, which means I am back teaching. If you remember, I was struggling with writers block. It seems that the coming and passing of the midterm elections helped that go away for the time being. Now comes new politicians, new ideas, new issues to work through and dissect, and another presidential election on the horizon. I loaded up this weekend on topics to blog passionately about. Sully’s weekly wrap helped dearly. It seems that when I get into teaching mode, I fall away from reading on the computer. No worries, I have ways of getting my ideas onto the net ;-)
