PRAY. And then a rant.

First and foremost, go over to My Charming Kids to get an update on MckMama's sweet baby boy Stellan. He is in bad, bad shape. They were told he'd die in the womb but was born this past fall perfectly healthy, no signs of sickness. Over the weekend, that all changed. He got sick and was diagnosed with the same disease and is fighting for his life. Please head over there to check out what's going on and PRAY PRAY PRAY. Although the names aren't listed in the blog, the parents and Jennifer and Israel. The have three other little ones, four and younger, at home.

If I Twittered, I'd tweet it. But I don't.

And now my rant, which isn't nearly as important as Stellan. But it's also been on my mind, so I'll proceed.

With our government asking a lot from us these days (ka-ching!) and most likely doing some serious damage to the future of our country, I think everyone should take some time to really learn about who exactly is running things.

We already know most people didn't take the time to look past the charismatic rhetoric of our President to see who the man truly is and what he stands for. I'm sorry--"Hope" isn't a destination.

We also know that the man in charge of the Treasury is above paying his taxes. Who isn't these days? But you know there'd be hell to pay if one of us shmucks failed to file ours. I doubt we'd be offered one of the most important positions in the country.

I digress... Well, sort of.

One of the President's nominees for the Health and Human Services Secretary is Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D-KS). She is being touted by certain Christan groups as being great for the pro-life and pro-family movement. However, as this article from Caffeinated Thoughts points all, not all is as it seems.

Once again, important facts are glazed over and even tampered with in effort to highlight certain agendas.

It's a well-researched article and doesn't seem to be mudslinging in any way. Make up your own minds, obviously. But it definitely deserves a read and more importantly, your consideration.

Any body else tiring of not really knowing who all these people running our country are?

To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last--but eat you he will.
