[Expliquer et Parler]

I don't make political posts very often; not because I don't have strong beliefs, but because I hate debate. You vote your way by your convictions, I'll vote mine. But every once in a while I read an article that helps to illustrate why I follow the policies I do. I don't like politics. As Derek Webb says in his song:

who's your brother, who's your sister
you just walked passed him
i think you missed her
as we're all migrating to the place where our father lives
'cause we married in to a family of immigrants

my first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man
my first allegiance is not to democracy or blood
it's to a King & a Kingdom

there are two great lies that i’ve heard:
“the day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die”
and that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class republican
and if you wanna be saved you have to learn to be like Him

but nothing unifies like a common enemy
and we’ve got one, sure as hell
but he may be living in your house
he may be raising up your kids
he may be sleeping with your wife
oh no, he may not look like you think

Anyway, that explains why I made the last post and why I refuse to jump into any political debates. That being cleared up...

I love coming home listening to good music. It puts me in a good mood like no other, sinus headache and all. Ooh, and I actually slept through the night last night! I think if I can pull that off once more, I'll be feelin' better.

I had something hyperspiritual/philosophical to say last night after the sermon, but I lost it. Sorry.

Se amo, Ustedes. Hasta luego!

Oh, and a welcome to my old xanga readers... did you get the hint? ;)
