37/73 - Where is our refuge?
By Mr. David Zanotti

Did you watch Bill Clinton's speech Tuesday night at the DNC? It would be good for all Americans to carefully review that speech. It also would be good to do so with a good history fact site near by. For me, that night also drives me to turn to Psalm 37 and Psalm 73. These passages have always been a source of profound inspiration - especially as we see people doing the wrong things and yet seemingly getting rewarded in culture with more success, more wealth and more power. 

Psalm 37 and 73. A universal reminder and antidote. Highly recommended.

Thanks Al, for explaining things
By Mr. David Zanotti

Al Franken is a funny guy and a good communicator. Some of his bits from SNL are truly memorable. Today he is a US Senator from Minnesota. He spoke at the Democratic Convention. He showed America what commitment looks like. He told the delegates that when they got home they needed to get to work, knocking on doors, doing whatever it takes. They needed to forget their jobs and their kids and get busy to elect Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton. He was careful to explain that an 8-year old can take care of himself without a parent. He can operate a microwave oven, even teach a four-year old how to run the microwave as well. 

So is this why Democrats keep winning? They forsake everything for their cause. That's what they teach, what they call for, what they demand.

Thank you for praying
By Mr. David Zanotti

Prayers are always answered. Sometimes we don't like the answer or we choose to walk away and not stick around to hear the answer but God hears prayers. He sees. He knows and this is still His earth. So when we pray it is not to convince the Almighty of the brilliance of our cause. He is way ahead of us. When we pray we hope to agree with the Lord that His kingdom will come and His will be done. We pray to align with Him, not the other way around. 

Thank you for praying for Cleveland and Philadelphia. Thank you for praying for peace, mercy and safety upon these cities and the citizens and leaders and all the guests who are participating in the conventions. In Cleveland there was a clear sense of a different spirit across the town. Yes, it was an armed camp but there could have been a lot of trouble. There was not. In fact, there was a different spirit. Let's pray it continues in Philadelphia.

Thank you.

Poor Ben Carson
By Mr. David Zanotti

On Tuesday night of the Republican Convention, the commentators of CNN went off on a tirade against Dr. Ben Carson. Their mocking rage was mindless. The commentators attacked Carson for discussing Hillary Clinton's relationship with the late Saul Alinsky, author of "Rules for Radicals". 

Forget the campaign and the election. What are the facts? Did the young Hillary Rodham have a relationship with Saul Alinsky or not? Did she study his works, write a college thesis on his doctrines and pursue a personal mentoring relationship with him? Just the facts. Forget the messenger or the venue or the delivery. 

The trail starts here. Just the facts. www.cbsnews.com/news/who-is-saul-alinsky/    freebeacon.com/politics/the-hillary-letters/

Sadness beyond imagining
By Mr. David Zanotti

Two people are dead because of police shootings. Many more preceded them. Eleven police and one civilian are dead or wounded because retaliatory snipers cut them down in the street. We are at the end of the god-less equation. For one hundred years we have taught most of our children that man is nothing more than an animal that can talk. Now we discover that this talking animal can also shoot down innocent people. 

How much farther is it before we reach the end our ourselves and acknowledge we need help?
