America is much like a town residing just below a great dam built by Christians whose remaining descendants have the only knowledge of how to maintain it. Over generations many Christians walked away from their God given commission to voluntarily maintain the dam. Meanwhile residents have spent generation beating on the dam with everything they can until cracks form, celebrating with each new crack. Those Christians who remain spent years crying out warnings to the town about the dangers of weakening the dam and offering solutions for its repair but the town got so tired of hearing from those annoying Christians that they passed local ordinances to silence them and eventually made it illegal for the Christians to do anything to maintain the dam.
As you can surmise, the dam eventually broke and swept away the people in a flood of destruction. America’s dam is riddled with cracks of its own making. Each day the forces of destruction increasingly press against the dam. With each new crack, and with each new restriction on American Christians to speak out and lead in the repairs our society celebrates, but shortly, very shortly, all hell is going to break loose.

As you know if you have perused my humble site, most of my posts have very serious tones of both temporal and eternal importance, mostly eternal the last couple years. But occasionally I like to post something random just for fun, or “JFF” if it’s added to the drop down menu above.
As my friends and family know I spend time on twitter, sometime too much time if I’m not careful, posting or interacting on the same two things, temporal (usually political) and eternal. On twitter I continue to post more on political themes as social media all too often devolves into conflict and I try to not have conflict with my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially in that setting.
Occasionally I’ll see something that’s just plain funny. Yesterday a young gal “followed” me as the term goes. Any time someone follows me I check out their recent posts, called a “timeline” or “TL” on twitter to determine if I will follow back. The reason for this (if you aren’t Twitter savvy) is that following someone will result in their posts showing up on your TL (or page if you will). So in the process of determining what kind of “tweets” (as they call it on Twitter) will show up on my TL if I follow this gal I came across a tweet she posted as follows:
Of course a tweet like this begged a response
Ok ok it was utterly silly of me but hey, that’s how I “roll.”

With the recent Hashtags on Twitter such as #ObamaAteADog and #ObamaDogRecipes I thought I’d toss in this humorous take on Obama making yet another excuse for something. Enjoy but don’t blink…it’s short.
Now that someone actually read Obama’s book and discovered he made light of eating a dog the internet is “abuzz” as they say. While it doesn’t bother me (I realize some cultures eat them) it’s been fun watching the humor mill.
