The law is the law

Though the following was tucked into my chuckle bucket, from email received well before Christmas, I am presenting it to you now as a follow-up to my recent previously written article. The simplicity of its wording makes me wish that I had said it. It goes something like this:
“Yes! the law is the law.”
So if the Canadian government, foot-printing the USA, determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then so be it.
And if that same government decides that the Ten Commandments are not to be used in or on a  government  installation, then so be it.
And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it.
I say “so be it” because I would like to be a law abiding Canadian citizen.
I say “so be it” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in the position to make good decisions.
I would like to think that those people have the intelligence to keep the Canadian Public’s best interest at heart.
But, do you know what else I think? And I’m far, far from being alone.
Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God, and cannot post His Commandments in government buildings, I don’t believe the government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honour the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of Canadian life.
I’d like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving, and Easter. After all it’s just another day.
I’d like our government to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving, and Easter, as well as Sundays. After all, it’s just another day.
I’d like all representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the Christmas break. After all it’s just another day.
I’m thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices and services would work on Christmas, Good Friday, and Easter. It should not cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be politically correct.
In fact I think our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God). Because, after all, our government says it should be just another day. What do you think?
Is it not time that elected officials stop giving in to the petty squalling of the minorities and begin, once again, to represent the “majority” of all of the people?
And might I personally add that we declare April Fool’s Day a National Holiday, allowing elected government officials this one day off.  Simply to give them a break from making a damn fool of themselves, all through the year, while bickering extensively over things that matter not, and overlooking the things that are really necessary.
Would their attention, and our tax dollars, not be better spent if directed to floundering health care, global warming, environment infringement, world wide poverty, with economic efficiency directed to the basics needs of life?
Which would, properly attended on all fronts, bring without doubt, peace, for the first time, to a world which we all, plant, beast, bird and man, share symbiotically, the divine gift of space, water, and the air we breathe.
Perhaps it would be quite in order, and make far more sense,  for me as a minority, to ask them, to change  nationally, because of  its discriminating connotation, the often used phrase, “Kill two birds with one stone,” to a new coinage, of which I am proud: “Hit  two politicians with one brick.”
Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Perhaps, it would wake them to the fact that they would appear less ridiculous if they spent more time in the exploration of reality. Or is that too, too much to expect, and just wishful thinking, on the part of the long forgotten  majority?
Take care, ‘cause we care.
