Senate Ethics-
Rangel defense: Hey, I'm 80, leave me alone

Disclaimer: Not really. If I'm brought to task for any of these imaginary headlines I might use the Rangel defense but I've got a way to go until I'm 80. Considering how long the detainees in Guantanamo have waited for trials in the land of "a right to a speedy trial" I guess I won't worry.

As for trying to explain why these absurdities actually exist in this nation today I can only offer one possible explanation. Perhaps Forrest Gump's mother was right "stupid is as stupid does." No insult intended to all those Americans who have not lost their way; for the rest I guess I'll have to resort to the "if the shoe fits" defense.

If for some reason all these defenses fail I will then resort to hiring a lawyer who knows how to get me a venue in a Manhattan Federal Court. I hear they are real easy there.

Tongue in cheek makes fun of absurdities in a backdoor kind of way but describing these things such as they are also has a ring of truth and sadness too it. Yanking prayer out of our schools in the sixties seemed liked a small matter to some, but now we have actually come to the place where our own President skipped the National Day of Prayer for other things. The headline that might be appropriate for this generation could be, "America enters the fast paced and confusing twenty first century — Hasn't got a prayer"

Do I really think a few prayers would change the headlines and make life a little less confusing? A more honest question would be; how have we been doing without prayers so far? My best advice is that we never let a single day pass without asking God to help our nation.

The Apostle James clearly said that no prayer goes unheeded and no prayer is without some result.

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5: 16)
