Quote

In his first commencement address as president, Donald Trump on Saturday drew a parallel between what he faces as a political outsider in Washington and what he said the Christian graduates of Liberty University can expect to encounter in a secular world.

"Be totally unafraid to challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures," Trump said. "Does that sound familiar, by the way?"

"Relish the opportunity to be an outsider," he continued. "Embrace that label. Being an outsider is fine. Embrace the label because it’s the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference. The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you should be that you must keep pushing ahead."

Trump's address was short on scripture but cast the president as a defender of the Christian faith — a mantle he assumed throughout the campaign.

"In America, we don’t worship government," Trump declared at one point. "We worship God."

He claims to be a Christian as long as it works in harmony with his economic interests. He worships money. He knows nothing of what it means to follow the Christ.

I have to admit, I get a chuckle. Now and then. Well, maybe more.

Anyhow, I keep whatever to myself. Someone in our hall said this was disrespectful. Of the man holding office. I try not to give it too much thought. Hard. My husband and daughter are just gleeful over the funny business that stems from, um, the man holding office. 

I try to think of it as a novel. Interesting, but, not much to do with me! And, I will probably put the novel down before I finish it!

I just find it humorous to see this statement "In God We Trust" on all the USA money notes.   Didn't Eisenhower add that quote in the 50's or was it someone before him?  Their god is $$$$$ no question.   I know they don't believe in the creator.   For me, its just  humorous to see that on my dollar bill and other bills.
