Will Rogers on “Elect the Liars?”

Candidates have been telling you that if elected they would “pull you from this bog hole of financial misery.” Now is a good chance to get even with ’em, by electing ’em, just to prove what a liar they are. LOS ANGELES, Cal., Nov. 2, 1930The “bog hole of financial misery” a couple of years ago was at an unemployment rate one half of what it is now. After the election, people were asking the former candidate for new kitchens, jobs, chickens in every pot and better healthcare. Farmer Jones wanted a new barn and more hogs to slop.Will Rogers might have called someone who promised so much a liar, but my mama told me to never call names. Maybe the candidate exaggerated the truth a bit, making so many promises. A lot of people believed him and voted for him.

It’s been a couple of years now and the economy has been stimulated to death. We’ve been looking for “shovel-ready jobs,” but we can’t even find out where the shovels are. I heard Farmer Jones had to lay off the hired hands and eat the hogs. His son got a temporary job from the government counting chickens in Seed-tick County for the chicken census.

People round here don’t take kindly to lying. We like to believe that folks abide by their promises. A few years ago we followed politicians’ promises like hogs called to dinner, but right now that bog hole deeper than a hogwaller.

I think we got even with ‘em a couple of years ago in the elections according to Will Rogers – we elected ‘em. Now what do we do with ‘em?

Wait for the Lord – Psalm 2 Minute Devotional

I love these little penguins because they symbolize patience in the extreme as they care for the eggs. They are also cute. It seemed to beautifully fit Psalm 27:14 as shown in the image.

Will Rogers on “Polecat Creek & Lame Ducks”

Lame ducks have been seen waddling down the halls of Congress lately. Unfortunately for these birds, there isn’t any more loot left in the National Treasury. There’s not even enough for a bridge to nowhere or a new post office building with their name on it. All the quacking and flapping around to raise the roof wouldn’t even be enough to bring home funds to widen Polecat Creek these days.

Without any money left, the hope these days is that there is a minimum amount of damage these poor rejected birds can do before they leave the Congressional pond and return to Polecat Creek back home.

Will Rogers on “Who Can Remember a Campaign Promise?”

Here is something you might have forgot, in the campaign last fall the Republicans said if the Democrats got in they would inflate money, and the Democrats swore they wouldn’t. But who can remember a campaign promise? BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., April 21.Money is all you hear about these days from Washington, and if we can remember back to previous campaigns, with Will Rogers, there were lots of promises from Democrats. One big promise was that the “stimulus” was promised to fix our financial mess with massive government spending.

Well, here we are three years later, and here are some things that have been stimulated. Unemployment has been stimulated; it’s higher now than it was then. Crony capitalism has been stimulated; if it was high before, it’s certainly higher now. The government printing presses have been stimulated; they can hardly keep up with printing all the money needed for the last stimulus.

Democrats promised all kinds of good things: better jobs, good business climate, ethical government, transparency, fiscal responsibility, and even tax breaks. You would think they were financial geniuses from all the promises. Not only have their programs created a financial mess, but they can’t even fulfill their duty, as the majority party in the Senate, and work to pass a budget. Never let responsibility get in the way of politics.

As we pause here to remember some Democrat campaign promises, we should remember one thing that they seem to forget. The money they spend is OUR tax money! It should be spent as responsibly as we spend our own money. But like Will Rogers says: “Who can remember a campaign promise?”


Image Info: The image of Rogers is from his 1921 silent film Guile of Women. Rogers plays a Swede named Yal who travels with a friend to America to seek his fortune. After misfortunes in love and business, his girlfriend finally arrives from Sweden.

The image was taken directly from pictures at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum archive. I apologize for the quality of the image, but this is exactly what the 1920s photo looked like when I scanned it. In the hundreds of images contained in this iPhone application, I wanted to share as many different Will Rogers photos as possible from as wide a variety of times and situations – movies, cowboy, vaudeville, with famous people, and family scenes.

Be Exalted, O Lord – Psalm 21 NIV 2 Minute Devotional

Psalm 21:13 Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.Walking down the halls of power  in Washington is an amazing experience as you consider the history of the place. The power to impact millions of people, worldwide is the responsibility of these legislators.

Have you ever watched a machine crush a car into a small cube? Have you watched a rocket launch, with fire, smoke, and an earth shaking roar of the engines. This is physical power, harnessed and used by man.

Consider the forces of nature. Hurricanes, volcanoes, lightning, tornados, earthquakes or tsunamis wield power so great, we are helpless before them.

We might tremble in the presence of powers mentioned above. We harness power, fear it, and respect it in its many forms, but what about the power of God? God’s power not only moves in our physical world, but in the spiritual world as well.

We should fear and respect God’s strength, power and might. Along with the Psalmist we should also respond with praise. Praise God for His mighty power, at work in and around us.

Dear Lord, You created this world, and oversee everything that happens. Such power and strength is too awesome for me to comprehend! Yet you care for me. Let me “sing and praise your might.” Amen.

Will Rogers on “Knowledge of the Future”

Actual knowledge of the future was never lower but hope was never higher. Confidence will beat predictions any time. BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., Sept. 19.Confidence just seems to flow naturally from the lips of politicians! For example, the former speaker of the house said that “We need to pass this [health care] bill to find out what’s in it!”

Opponents of the bill were criticized for voting against the bill, that they were not given the opportunity to read. They predicted huge problems for the economy. In the end, confidence in the bill won, and beat prediction, just like Will Rogers says in this quote. Now we have to hire 81 IRS workers to enforce compliance of the excise tax on tanning salons.†

After spending hundreds of billions of dollars of stimulus money, the Vice President remains confident of success. He recently said: “Just becaust the Recovery Act was a monumental failure, does not mean that it is not working.” Detractors of the stimulus predicted dire economic consequences, and now we have high unemployment, plus rising energy and food prices.

Hope and confidence are abundant with the current administration, but they just don’t seem to have a clue about the future. Will Rogers sure got that right, didn’t he?

Well, I’ve got to go and apply for an IRS job downtown this afternoon. I’m confident I can land my dream job of checking up on tanning salons.

With my Whole Heart – Psalm 119 KJV 2 Minute Devotional

Never has temptation and sin been so near as in this internet age. It’s only a click away! After the first click, another click, and another, and another. Sin makes us feel dirty. So how do we get clean?

Psalm 119 gives us some answers. The KJV says, “By taking heed according to your word.” By letting the Word of God begin to guide our lives. It can cleanse us, just like the pure clean water flowing in the image on the left.

Begin to seek God with your whole heart. But you might say: “That’s impossible, it’s too difficult!” Indeed it is, but you’re not alone – the Lord can help you if you ask him. The Psalmist prays: “Oh, let me not wander from your commandments!”

The other thing I noticed about this passage is praise: “Blessed art thou, O Lord!” As we ask God to help us, we should praise him. Consider the many blessing you already have, and praise God for them.

I hope you have been blessed by Psalm 119 and the accompanying image taken from the Psalm Daily Quotes KJV iPhone app. Please visit our blogtwitter, or Facebook page regularly and pass these posts on to friends that need an encouraging word.

Keep my Feet from Falling – Psalm 56 ESV 2 Minute Devotional

Psalm 56:11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? 13 For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.When I am in a high place, looking over the edge, I am seized with fear. I’ve been in tall buildings, on the edge of the Grand Canyon, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and many other high places. Some people are completely paralyzed with a fear of high places, and others, like steel workers, can work on beams 20 stories off the ground. I’m somewhere in between.

As I approach the edge, the fear grows, but I have to remind myself that I can put my trust in the glass window, or the railing to keep me from falling.

The Psalmist says that with trust in God, he will not be afraid. I think this takes time as we deal with our fears. We have to remind ourselves that that we can trust God when it looks like we are coming to the edge.

Some day perhaps we can be as confident at the mountain goat in the image. They live and thrive in the high places. They play and skip and jump from ledge to ledge.

Dear Lord, Let my trust in you grow day by day, that I may not be afraid of what comes my way. Please keep my feet from falling that I may walk before you, even skip and jump in the “light of life.” Amen.
