Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/4/15

3 Up

1. Chris Mintz - Who else? In what is yet another horrific mass shooting on a school camps, Mintz took several bullets and helped saved the lives of many more. You sir, Mt. Mintz, are a real hero and who we should be talking about - NOT the suspect! 

2. Neil Everett - OK, If you follow the DP, you know I'm not a huge fan of ESPN's SportsCenter and some of their coverage of sports. However, I came across Neil Everett's comments following the recent Oregon shootings and definitely gained respect for this dude. "What's going on with humanity?" Kudos to you Mr. Everett on taking a stand and saying exactly how we all feel. 

3. Max Scherzer - Well, it didn't get them into the playoffs, but tossing another no-hitter, especially wen it comes with a side of 17Ks, is pretty damn impressive. Scherzer is a beast! It's just a shame the Nats couldn't get it together to see him toss when it really matters - October! 

3 Down

1. Oregon Shooting - So ridiculous, I don't even feel like repeating what happened. Why are these type of incidents so prevalent in our country? Ugh, so disgusted. And oh yeah, the politicians who want to pipe in on "gun control" suddenly, go away.

2. Doctors Without Borders Attack - This incident unfortunately killed many serving doctors and staff in an apparent "oops" by our own government. Not a good look, and it cost many people their lives. Again, an unfortunate incident that leaves egg all over the face of our US military. 

3. George Zimmerman - His latest social media use is not only a red flag, but truly, truly, truly disrespectful. Retweeting an image of a dead Trayvon Martin? Calling President Obama and the Oregon shooter the same? This guy has lost it. And in a big, big way.

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…
