Some ideas about Immigration

Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”  ~ Theodore Roosevelt 1907 ~

With these hard economic times, it will be a little crazy to see what happens with what President Obama wants to do. You can check some stuff written about this topic and Obama here.

Football without God

What a tragedy if someone is like this, and I know of plenty that are in this position.  I saw a really good quote from someone on this subject and it caught my interests. He said that if he didn’t have Christ in his life, he would have probably killed himself after the tragic defeat that happened against the Husker football team Yesterday, the 19th of September, 2009.  (I won’t post a link to inflict more pain, its OK) I love sports and I love football, but I especially love Husker football.  Back in the day I would have flipped out with the loss that we had, but as I have grown older and a little more knowledgeable on how important the eternal perspective is for my life and those that are committed to Christ, not just the importance of one single football game.

Yes it was a tough loss to take, but where you will go in eternity matters with not just your life or death here on earth, but for an eternal life and eternal death.  Instead of what this loss against Va Tech, pretty much inflicted by our team, means to your week, what does spending eternity without Christ in Hell, lonely and in darkness, mean for your life right now?
