Food(Cows) for Thought

I recently received an email with the following:

Two things to think about:
 1. Cows
 2. The Ten Commandments
 
COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. Yet they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow?
  
TEN COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery” and “Thou Shall Not Lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians — it creates a hostile work environment.

Sounds pretty reasonable doesn’t it? Unfortunately, our government has a lot of problems, but we still need to stand behind it. If we don’t we are just being unpatriotic. Emails such as this get passed around daily, and are constantly putting our government down. Sure they get a few laughs and everyone agrees with them. But are they really a healthy view of our nation? Although I tend to agree with the ridiculousness of these jokes, I can’t help but wonder if they are hurting us as a whole.

  1. umm… i would like to say something creative and funny to this blog but im at a loss for words. I guess i just dont find them funny cause have gotten used to a socitey that does not make any rational sense maybe thats the thing that really should be the climax of this story. that we call our selves the most advanced nation in the world but we still seem to find the time to sponsor millions of dollars into research into wether methane from COW waste effects the enviroment (havent cows been around for thousands of years.) rather then puting that money to cleaning up the toxic waste that we put into our trash cans.
    the fact that the majority of the population of our nation claims some sort of religious ties. Ye we still have Chatsworth with out a doubt called the porn capitol of the world. Also we have banned reliious activity from our school system.
    I wish there was a way i could rationalize thinking of our nation as the most advanced or the most moral but the fact is we seem to more and more like hypocrits every day

  2. That is because we are in the millenial kingdom. What say you, Mr. Edwards, you closet amilleninalist?
