Carr yes mind if i swear by Chuck Stone during his travels across the Back roads of America gathering material for his Best seller a Blue highways a a William least heat Moon came upon a grizzled Pioneer named Watkins in the California desert. A the had a face so bullied even the soil conservation commission have reclaimed it a a Bill noted. A but his eyes seemed lighted from the two men talked of Many things. Finally the old Bird pointed out the camper where he and a a what a her face his name for his wife lived. A my camper has most anything you a want he said. A even one of them Ping Pong to games. What a her face says we have to have it to entertain the great grandchildren. I say to her a Why can to they just look out the Winda like other kids a a those great grandchildren wont have anything unless wires come out of it. If i ran an Extension Cord Down my Pant leg and let them plug me in they a believe they had a real the talk went on to other things. At one Point in the conversation Watkins figured head like to swear. Here they were in the desert with no one else within earshot a a what a her face was inside the camper but the old Feller did no to want to take the Chance he would offend the stranger he had just met. So he asked first a do you mind if i swear a when Bill said he did no to the Geezer let Loose with a couple of Choice expletives. Now that its considered Good manners to say before we Light up a cigarette a do you mind if i smoke Quot maybe we should extend the same Courtesy to people before we swear. This would be appreciated by a George Plagenz woman i was talking to recently who gives the hands on driving test in Connecticut for those applying for their Drivers licenses. She took a 19-year-old College student out for her test the other Day. A when the time came for the parking part of the exam a said the examiner Quot she knocked Over one of the Cones. It meant she flunked the test. A a a of shoot a a she said. A after some of the foul language i hear when other Drivers flunk the test i was so surprised a pleased really a that i wanted to pass her. Of course i most women today swear like troopers. To put it that Way however is probably an insult to the state Highway patrol. Quot on my worst Day a says a trooper i know a i never use the language i hear some women use when i pull them women not Only swear themselves they consider it sexist a a breach of sexual Equality a if men a watch their language in front of them. The result is that what you hear is mixed company today is what you used to hear Only in a menus army Barracks. I must admit i find it refreshing to hear a woman say a a gosh instead of Quot god Quot As an expletive a god a strikes me As graceless and common something you would expect Joan Rivers to say. It also offends my religious sensibilities. If you remind people who use it that they Are taking the lords name in vain they will usually reply that they mean nothing by it. Cardinal John Henry Newman had the answer to that a nothing is worse a he said a than to say god and to mean nothing by someone once said a we ought to save the name of god for the great now we can to even sneeze without somebody saying a god bless sneezing is hardly a great occasion. Today s thought by . Dean a and in hell he lift up his eyes being in torments and seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his Luke 16 23 one minute after you have missed heaven you will know that hell is no myth. The Only Way out is in him. Re believe on the lord Jesus Christ and thou Shalt be a and he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said of a truth i say unto you that this poor widow hath cast in More than they All for All these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of god but she of her penury hath cast in All the living that she Luke 21 2-4 the lord still sees the gift and the attitude of the giver. He also knows if you have reached a Point of sacrifice in your giving. A the lord Loveth a cheerful attend your Church and give to the cause of Christ through it and Pray for gods servant. He will bless you for it. Contra questions of Reagan president Reagan did not take his initial Contra Aid defeat lying Down although he reportedly prefers the serenity of that posture. For reasons that seem to elude the average american or. Reagan has asked us to accept on Faith that civilization is at the Crossroads in Nicaragua. How can any rational person who has not undergone an ideological Lobotomy believe that a armageddon will be fought on a beachhead the size of new York state maybe an argument can be made for sending $100 million in Aid to a seedy Little group of 2,500 questionably capable rebels fighting a questionable military Campaign. But Ronald Reagan and his fastest court Jester in the West Patrick Buchanan Haven to made it yet. Instead the president and Buchanan whose squeaky voice sounds like it has acne have been impugning the patriotism of their opponents and rediscovering the indictment a ooh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to presidential deceptions Are not intentional. Like Topsy they a a Jess in his sunday evening televised Jeremiah or. Reagan soberly intoned a the capitals Only synagogue was desecrated and fire bombed a the entire jewish Community forced to flee not really contradicted rabbi Balfour Brickner of new York City a Stephen Wise free synagogue. A the synagogue in Managua was abandoned during the fighting in 1978. The sandinista told me they would be Happy to give it Back but there is no one to give it to. There is not a jewish Community in Managua to support a misstatements a Lovely euphemism for lies Are not the shining exception with Reagan but the blemished Rule. Former president Carter has accused president Reagan of a More than once a misrepresenting the Carter record. Despite a Reagan Promise according to Carter not to do it again Reagan persists. In politics passion reigns on both sides and the Contra Aid debate has turned into a strictly partisan Issue. After nine Republican congressman visited Nicaragua for 20 hours they returned with their support solidified for the rebels. In a recent column conservative guru James Kilpatrick hailed Reagan so convincing Case in support of aids to the contras. However both perceptions Are contradicted by an authoritative report by a former Marine Captain and Cia analyst that concluded that the contras Are already Defeated. Clearly a majority of the american people reject continued Aid to the contras. The rejection is even More emphatic in the Black and hispanic communities with the Black and hispanic members of Congress voting unanimously against Aid to the contras. Minorities always feel More passionate about non interference in the internal affairs of other nations because they came out of a legacy of so much interference in their lives at first Blush americans might not get excited about this outlay of $100 million if they weren to being asked to surrender so Many other Federal programs. For example Reagan want to Cut $512.2 million from next years College Aid program for Low income students. His Contra Aid request could provide Aid to 179,000 students. At the risk of appearing to succumb to Samuel Johnson a admonition that a patriotism is the last Refuge of scoundrels a i would suggest that $100 million for Low income american students is More critical to this nations survival than that sum to a Haggle Taggle group 3,000 Miles away. The Contra Aid controversy wont subside easily. As a matter of personal Pride and ancient conviction Ronald Reagan has contrived to make it the Touchstone of his administration. In the process he fits a description by Peter Finley Dunne a or. Dooley a a fanatic is a Man that does what he thinks the lord wed do if he knew the facts of the your questions we done to have a question a Man or an answer a a person at the times Tribune.
