Life would be so much better if fried chicken tasted like garbage. I would be skinny and healthy. I would feel better. I would have more energy, run faster, jump higher. My stomach would feel better. I would look better in my work suit and bathing suit. I would sleep better. My mood would be better. I would treat everyone around me better. I would simply be an overall better person. Oh well.
The holidays are over, and 2012 is here. This is a perfect time for us to account for all of our many blessings and look ahead. In 2011, we lived, loved, and learned. Many lessons and experiences just fell into our laps. God threw us some curve balls that were in accord with His plan, and we had no choice but to swing at the unexpected as it was delivered. The unforeseen will have its place in 2012, as well. However, I feel that God expects us to mostly live life with intention. Accordingly,...
The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to our Constitution, and each amendment is part of the Constitution. Most folk are aware of the First Amendment (freedom of religion, speech, the press, assembly, and petition), but few ever think about the other nine amendments of the Bill of Rights. Let's look at two other amendments of the Bill of Rights, and compare how sinister politics are attacking them. As we shall see, one is attacked from the left and the other from the right.
It’s the beginning of November, and the busy season is upon us. The next two months will be an onslaught of work, church, friends and family obligations. This time of year is the most stressful. Stress is through the roof with the hustle of our schedule. I will complain about being tired and fret about getting everything done.
Yet, last night reminded me that these “obligations” are really such blessings, and we should slow life down when we can. I took my 2-year-old son trick-or-treating...
I have a hearing today that should not have ever been scheduled. All my client wants is a second opinion to see if more can be done to make her well. She is absolutely entitled to it under the law; but the adjuster thinks she knows more than me, the defense lawyer (the insurance company's lawyer), and the judge. If she had authorized the second opinion when we requested it three months ago, there is an even chance this case would already be over. This is not uncommon; sadly, it is typical. Insurance...
The Greenville News recently published a column by Dr. Ed Leap, wherein he suggested that crooks undeservedly drawing Social Security Disability benefits dominate the system. Though the undeserving and lazy occasionally slip through the cracks, I feel that the overwhelming majority of Social Security Disability recipients are legitimate. Below is my response to Dr. Leap’s column which The Greenville News ran on Saturday, October 8, 2011.
Don't Punish the Majority for a Few Sinners
"Bocephus" is in “No Man’s Land”
Recently, Hank Williams, Jr. (nicknamed Bocephus as a child by his legendary father) came under fire when he compared President Obama to WWII Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Williams Jr. stated that President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner playing golf during the recent debt crisis debate was “like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu.” Immediately, a wide range of liberal groups denounced his comments. And, when his comments resulted in a disagreement...
