Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/19/15

3 Up

1. #IWishMyTeacherKnew - This was a really cool thing done by a third grade teacher in Denver, Colorado. The initiative not only gives her students an opportunity to share their feelings, but a platform for to relate to her students. Sometimes we need less standardized testing, and more initiatives like this. 

2. New York Mets - Whoa, who are these guys?! I thought the Mets would be good this year, but this good? No one saw this coming. Even as a Yankees fan, I'm happy for Mets fans. They've put up with quite a lot over the past few years. 

3. Alex Rodriguez - Speaking of a surprise, how awesome has it been to watch A-Rod turn back the clock and be one of the best hitters in baseball right now? He's never looked so relaxed. Once you hit rock bottom, what else is there to worry about? 

3 Down

1. ISIS Killing Christians - Just when you think ISIS couldn't be any more of a threat, they are now persecuting more Christians in Libya. This is heartbreaking. What has become of the Eastern world?  

2. Migrant Ship Capsized - In more sad news, a migrant ship capsized in the Mediterranean Sea as more people look to flee the Middle East and Northern Africa due to war, persecution, and poverty. 

3. Britt McHenry - It's funny, I had no idea who Britt McHenry was until her backlash was caught on video. We've all had our moments in anger at companies, but berating another person with personal insults the way she did is not only wrong, but evident of the true person she is. Unacceptable.

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…
