Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/9/15

3 Up

1. Russell Westbrook - After Kevin Durant went down again to an injury, Russell Westbrook not only responded to the challenge of carrying the Thunder, but he notched four straight triple-doubles, and had yet another one tonight. The guy has been insane as of late. 

2. MLS Opening Weekend - I was crazy enough to watch all three Sunday games today, and I really haven't regretted it. The MLS opening weekend has been amazing and should be another season of growth for the budding league. 

3. Cute Four Year Old - This video was so cute, and her response to a four year old boy calling her ugly was a nice touch. Sure, kids are mean and that little boy will probably never remember saying what he did, but the little girl's poise in that response was nice. Kudos to her parents as well - the true foundation of the response. 

3 Down

1. Curt Schilling Daughter's Social Media Attackers - Those who decided to go after Curt Schilling's daughter on social media this week with all sorts of disgusting remarks are low-lives. True scumbags. As great as social media can be, there is such an ugly side of individuals who now hide behind screens making the world a terrible place. 

2. MH370 Anniversary - It's hard to imagine it has been one year since flight MH370 disappeared. One year later, we still have no idea where the plane or bodies of those on that flight are. Scary, disturbing, puzzling, and sad altogether. 

3. University of Oklahoma - I came across the video of the Sigma Alpha Episolon chapter at the University of Oklahoma chanting "There will never be a n----r in SAE" on a bus. Sure it's racist - of course, absolutely. However, the chant seemed all to casual and common. That's the part that should bother many.

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …

Thoughts on 2018 State of the Union Address

Heading into this State of the Union address, I strongly believed this was President Trump's opportunity to somehow clear the air and change slow the growing perspective he's been claiming as "fake news". For a guy whose strength in politics has been refuting claims, attacking others, tweeting without control, and giving informal and fiery speeches in the form of rallies, having a blank canvas to unite, to control the perspective, and to give his mission is indeed foreign. 
Last night was his chance. And in my opinion, it was the "must win" in the political spectrum, especially considering the midterm election season we are upon. 
Again, im not a "must win" kind of person, but his message tonight is just that in the political spectrum. Has to deliver. Has to. — Dome Pondering (@DomePondering) January 30, 2018
Overall, I thought the President did well. I'm being fair and just. And as a former college debater and an absolute junkie for rhetoric…
