When it comes to politics, I am as confused as the politicians themselves. I do not like to discuss politics because I do not understand it and just as soon as you understand one opinion, everything changes and you do not know where you are at. Just as soon as a politician voices a position on an issue, he spins it around and it sounds like he has taken an opposite view. All that spinning has me in a whirl.
Politicians change positions more than the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changes her mind.
It seems to me that when God ran out of brains and intellectual capacitors, He turned to an angel and said, “I know what I will do. I’ll make me a politician.” He gathered up all the leftover dirt He could find and threw together what we now know as a politician.
I do not know if this was a joke on God’s part or if He is just trying to test us to see how much pain we can endure. The only consolation I have, and I have read my Bible over 100 times, there is no mention of politicians in heaven. Maybe that is one of the things that makes heaven, heaven.
I know I do not understand much that goes on in the political arena, but one of the things I have been hearing has to do with what they call, “The Haves and the Have Nots.” It must be important because now there is a TV series with this name. Do not dare ask me if I have watched it because I will have to tell you the truth. I “Have Not.”
What do people mean when they use this phrase? Who are these Haves? And who are these Have Nots?
