Obama waves magic wand

By Joseph Farah

The Washington Post news story read like this: “President Obama mandated Thursday that hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and allow same-sex couples to share medical power of attorney, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans.”

I’ve been in the news business for 30 years. I taught journalism at a major university. I may be something of a newsroom relic, but I was around when “gay” still meant happy.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus

I went out the other day to do some yard work and decided to clear out some of the overgrown brush that was behind my yard to gain a nice shaded area beneath some trees. As usual, nothing is ever as simple as it seems to be when you start a job. As I went along clearing out the unwanted brush. I came across some Picker bushes (which I absolutely hate), some poison ivy and some vine like weeds that actually grow to 3inch in diameter and sprawl through all of my Forsythia bushes that line the back yard. I hadn’t noticed before how overgrown this stuff had become. Trying to untangle these vines from the forsythia was a huge job. They had entangled and weaved all the way up each branch of the bush and were choking it to death and because they resembled the bushes and maybe my lack of being observant, they had gone unnoticed by me to the point that the forsythia bush was dying.
