This morning’s sermon from the YouTube of Tim (maybe Timothy?). Before the choir’s soloist sings for us, pay special attention to the lyrics, and read them aloud with me, but first bow your head for a short prayer: Lord, may we be inspired to love and protect our Constitution as did our Founding Fathers, and we ask for your wisdom in doing so. Amen.
Who can take your money, with a twinkle in their eye?
Take it all away and give it to some other guy?
The government, the government can.
Who can tax the sunrise, who can tax the trees?
Let you run a business and collect up all the fees?
The government, Oh the government can.
The Government can ’cause they mix it all up with lies and make it all taste good.
The government takes everything we make, to pay for all their solutions:
health care, climate change, pollution…throw away the Constitution…
Congregation, please get our your pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution and go to:
U.S. Constitution, Article I, Sec. 8:
“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States…” U.S. Const. Art. I, sec. 8″
The important thing to remember is, the above DEFINES the ONLY access to, and outlay of our money, your money, my money.
Here is a quote from Senator John McCain, April 16, 2007, who wanted to give my money, and your money to millions of illegal aliens, who nevertheless, got this right:
But it was not intended to command our economy, or redirect its benefits to this or that interest group or subordinate its growth to the growth of government.
Government’s constitutional obligation to promote the general welfare did not empower it to assume the responsibilities of individuals but to protect our right to exercise those responsibilities without fear or favor, and to profit from the results.
Thank you to 9-12 Project for video.
Want clean comedy with an edge? Tim Hawkins brings the funny.
Hawkins has been accused of being equally gifted and twisted. Whatever your take, he has indeed become one of the most in-demand comics in the country. His arsenal is unique: high energy stand-up, physical comedy, slick guitar skills, a thousand faces and voices, improvisational chops. It all combines to create an insane comedy experience. And yes, the guy can really sing. “People think I live a rock-star life”, said Hawkins. “Believe me, Mick Jagger never gets lost in a Hertz parking lot looking for his Ford Focus.”
His art form was honed primarily in churches, with a brief 6-month stint performing in prisons as part of Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship. Since his shows ranged from little kids to youth groups to married adults, he had to develop material that would hit a wide age range…
With 4 kids of his own and a wife who is winning her battle with breast cancer, Hawkins gets new material daily from the perils of marriage and parenting. But it must be difficult to work clean all the time, right? “Clean comedy is easy. Funny comedy is hard.” Read more here.
