President’s Day 2015

Today is President’s Day!  We’ll be going to a couple of Goodwills, the ones where the price of everything is 35% off.  I’ll be looking at the books, DVDs, and VHSs.

I have set limits on what I buy.  Sometimes, I regret my decisions.  I wish, for example, that I got that book by Donald Miller, or Pope Benedict’s biography of Jesus.  Come to think of it, I may have even turned down Rob Bell’s Love Wins.  I am a man of discipline!  But it’s not the end of the world.  I can get things from my local library.  Today, I’ll be on the lookout for Christian fiction.  That has been my thing, lately.

I was thinking about the topic of Presidents.  Who is my favorite President?  I am too jaded to answer that question today.  I read an article not long ago about some of the company former President Clinton may be keeping, and that did not make me like former President Clinton that much!  I still vote, though, because some candidates are more likely to be sympathetic regarding the issues that affect me (i.e., the interest rates I’d have to pay on my student loans).

    I don’t think I have a favorite President. My father jokes that Nixon was his favorite, and invariably, everyone groans or rolls their eyes. I’m not certain that it’s ever safe to have a “favorite” politician, really.

    My favorite politician in 2008 was Sarah Palin. I learned from that not to have a favorite politician!
