    Something to ponder

    When God spoke He created - and it was GOOD! He created trees, flowers, animals, mountains, valleys, planets, stars, man, etc...God spoke the world into existence - and it was GOOD! If we were to take our words - what would we create? What would it look like? OUCH!!

    I was thinking about this as it relates to so many things that I have said regarding gun control laws etc. Are we going about this the wrong way? Always talking about what we don't want and thus creating exactly that?

    Maybe we need to discuss what we want instead!

    There is an almost endless amount of literature regarding just that, both ancient and modern. We talk so much of what we don't want, but I never see discussion on just what it is that we want, such as a free and open government, constitutional rights strictly adhered to, gun laws that supports legal and open gun ownership, etc.

    The power of the tongue is discussed way back, even in the Veda religion, one of the first ones ever.

    I think we should take on this as a way of creating exactly what we want. Stop creating what you don't want, speak what you do!

    So, what is it that you do want? No criticizing others, their desires may differ from yours, but they belong to the person speaking!
