While all of these posts are written from a Christian point of view, and filtered through a Christian world view, the main topics deal with politics: government, elections, taxes, laws, rights, etc. Yes, I mix politics and religion. Jesus doesn’t wait outside the voting booth when I cast my ballot.

Betsy DeVos Wants To Put Your Student Loan Money On A Bank Card

Betsy DeVos wants student loan money on a debit card, and I think this is actually a great idea. Any time there is involvement from the Federal Government, especially where there’s money involved, there needs to be oversight. Let’s face it. While much of the money students receive gets used for its intended purpose, there’s also a lot that gets abused. If the government is handing out money, than it has an interest in making sure it’s used for its intended purpose.

Taxpayers get irate when government employees make headlines spending money (per diem), even when it’s theirs, in places such as strip joints and casinos, and rightfully so. Why no oversight for students? Seriously. If you think students aren’t spending that government money on booze, drugs, birth control, you aren’t paying attention.

Democrats see ‘crumbs’ and ‘scraps’ with new tax cuts, Americans see bigger paychecks and more jobs | Fox News

The disconnect between what congressional Democrats are saying about the recently enacted tax cut and what is happening in the real world is so wide that it is getting difficult to see across the chasm.

Washington Is Broken

Every once in a while I read, or hear, the statement: Washington is broken. And for the most part, everyone agrees that it’s broken, liberals and conservatives alike.

The thing I find interesting about this situation is that both sides want to treat the problem differently. Conservatives want the government to shrink, the idea being that smaller government will mean less broken. Liberals on the other hand, want to expand the government, essentially expanding the broken. Apparently liberals don’t care that the government is broken despite their complaints about it.
