The Return of the Eagle

Our first notice of the eagle’s return last year was October 25.  This morning; November 01, 2012 at 9 a.m.  was my first sight of the returning eagles this Fall.

The first one came and made a short circle before setting in a tree behind our house along the Creek bank.  Then, shortly thereafter the second one came and perched beside the other.  As I watched for a while one of them dropped from the tree toward the water; I lost sight of it at that time, and she came up and set herself down in another tree.  In just a short time she swooped down again and went back to the former tree.

It is so amazing to watch these amazing birds of prey; and they are so beautiful in flight.  One of God’s beings in His created order.

I hope I did not cause them to leave permanently when I went out to burn a brush pile near where they had perched.  I like seeing them around.

The Top Five Reasons to Vote for President Obama

With the election coming up in a couple of months I thought I might look at some reasons one should vote for Obama.

The number one reason I thought of is economical, and has to do with the fact that he is already in office, so why waste another 200, 000 or more per year on retired Presidents salary.  I mean if we elect Romney, President Obama will still be getting an income from the American people, why not make him earn it?

The second reason I can think of is that the man likes going around making speeches, and turning peoples eyes upon himself.  He must really be an important fellow who demands such respect, and awe in the hearts and minds of those who adore him.  His promises are as good as his word; and we know how good that really is.

My third reason to vote for the President is because he wants to divide the wealth of our nation.  Under his ideas the rich will stop getting richer; the poor will stop getting poorer; and I am really sure that there will be more food on everyone’s tables, more gas in our cars, and more coal, oil, and electrical production.  Who among us would not like to have the same wealth as Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or the WalMart family?  Is that the way his ideas would work?

The fourth reason would be because he is such a good family man.  He is for everyone having the right to marry, even two men or two women.  I am that sure eventually he would be in favor of a man or woman marrying their own son or daughter; or their own sibling.  Is there anything wrong with that?

Sorry about the title; but I could not think of any more reasons to vote for President Obama in November.
