Thought of the Day – Why God is so Damn Good?!

by Senator Brett

I always hear Christians say pithy statements like, “God is good”… no matter the circumstances. And, it gets me to thinking…

If God is, indeed, good… then God is Continue reading

The Last Supper of the Constitution

Disclaimer: I wrote this many moons ago… back when it still mattered to me. I give up now.  Actually, I gave up some time ago.

The Last Supper of the Constitution

by Senator Brett

They’ve been crossing my mind a lot lately, fluttering about as I make my way through the ordinariness of my daily existence: these wandering shapes and crooked lines, these loops and circles, these small words that amount to very little until you place them together row on row. And then they become as large as Life itself. 

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

And you pretty much know where it goes from Continue reading

TOTD – You’re in Peru, Now Go!

Thought of the Day – You’re in Peru Now Go!

by Senator Brett

The other day someone asked me what I would do if I won the Texas State Lottery now that it was up to $119 million. After some thought, I decided that after the usual things people would say they would do: dream house, dream car, travel the world, charity, pay to be flown to the International Space Station… what I really want to do is take my awesome little brother, Cob, to Vegas for a “no holding back” weekend of gambling, shows, gambling, fantastic food and wine, gambling, gambling… you get the picture. But, Continue reading

Multiple TOTD’s – You Can Never Think Too Much!

Since it is Memorial Day I thought it best to dole out three TOTD’s. My thinking… it was a three-day-weekend… why not a three-thought-post. I don’t know why I am telling you this other than to point out that I am good at math.

TOTD – My Coffee Habit is Saving The Earth

Thought of the Day – My Coffee Habit is Saving the Earth!

by Senator Brett

Yesterday was Earth Day. And for those of you that know me… you know that I am somewhat wishy-washy when it comes to things like the environment. I believe there is a lot more the human race should be doing to preserve our planet for future generations, but I also drink a lot of bottled water and only recycle when it is easily available. I believe that the oil companies don’t do nearly enough to make up for the devastation they cause in certain parts of the world and their overall impact on our planet; however, if they were to offer me a job making great money, I’d gladly accept. So, like I said… Continue reading
