The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government. (Franklin Delano Roosevelt)
You may be wondering why I would quote someone with very liberal social views; it’s because FDR is considered by Democrats as one of the greatest presidents. While I agree he was a great war president, his social programs set us on the disastrous entitlement mentality our country now suffers.

Yesterday I wrote that cloture was over and that it seems as though we don’t have a chance to stop this immigration bill. Thankfully I was wrong!
Yesterday’s cloture vote was to allow debate and move to a final cloture vote which will come tomorrow. It is not too late to make a difference folks. Please call your senators and let them know that you want them to vote no on cloture.

It has been nearly three weeks since my last post; much has been going on in my personal life, all for the good. My oldest daughter Tiffany was married on June 16 and my son Eddie came home on R&R from Iraq the same day. We have had a blessed 11 days and we thank God for His blessing and give Him all the praise.
Now, being as busy as I’ve been doesn’t mean I haven’t been watching what is happening in the political arena; quite the contrary. I’ve also been busy calling, emailing, and faxing my two lawbreaker-supporting senators here in Florida. As I’m sure most of you already know, the Senate voted for cloture on the immigration bill which pretty much means they voted to approve it. Now some of the mealy-mouthed Republican Senators will tell you that they wanted to begin the debate so they can shine the light on these arguments, but now instead of needing 60 votes to move this bill forward, they only need 51 votes to pass this amnesty bill.

Hey folks – This is a quick post to say howdy and thank Dave for the opportunity to be a contributor to his blog. I will do my level best to be the “lighthouse” he spoke of in an earlier post. Here’s a little bit of info about me so you’ll have an idea about the man behind the keyboard. I’m much younger, handsomer, and almost as intelligent as Dave. Not really. He is probably the best friend I’ve ever had and more like a brother than anything else. I’m sure many of you feel the same way.
I am a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe the Bible is accurate, complete, and trustworthy. I have studied God’s Word for nearly thirty years and have yet to find it wanting in anything. I am a little different than Dave in some respects (apart from the age and good looks). He is much better than I am at discerning the political winds blowing through our country. I am up to date with political happenings but not to the level Dave is. I’m more in touch with religious happenings, trends, and apologetics. That’s one reason I’m so excited to be a part of Salt and Light.

I want to take this opportunity to welcome aboard Bill Malley, a dear friend, brother-in-Christ, best man at my wedding, a Kentucky Wildcat fan, well, anyway. Bill is going to be contributing to Salt and Light with many of his insights, both theological and political. Bill knows how to cut to the chase and since the goal of Salt and Light is to bring political and moral clarity into the fog of political correctness, I decided another lighthouse would be good. Keep in touch and keep watching for the latest posts. God bless!
