On Wednesday, by unanimous votes, the charge of the 15% tax was droped off the food basket. The meeting at CN held a voting in which the proposition made by the Liberal party had 124 votes in favor and zero against. It is good that at least the food will not have the 15% tax; however, everything else outside the food basket ( except medicine) has a rise in price. I just hope that we can see a change in the society, and that the money collected from those taxes may be put in good use.

In 2011 Christian parents were more than happy to allow their pre teen daughters idolize a young boy who sang pop songs and professed himself as a Christian. Every girl would fall in love with this bluffer who said in interviews and documentaries that he loved God from the very bottom of his heart and wanted to do His will. The truth is that last Thursday he was arrested for DUI and drag racing in a public street. Previously he had been spotted smoking marihuana and drinking. I do not care what this idiot does with his life, but what pisses me off is that he outspokenly called himself a Christian, an action that apparently was just for attracting the wallets od Christian parents, and his actions just say the contrary. As Mark 9:42 says it is better to tie a stone in your neck and throw yourself to the sea instead of being a stumbling block for other people.

A poll in Ohio revealed that 42 % of Christians born between 1946 and 1964 were pro death penalty, but the new Christians born between 1980 and 2000 were softer in the subject. This means that today's Christians are more given to condone someone's crimes. Recalling that the worst crimes are the ones worthy of death penalty such as multiple murders, I think that the death sentence is justified. Though my position has been said, I am also divided by Jesus' commands of forgiving those who do bad things to us. Thinking it better, everyone deserves a chance of changing his ways, and it would be a shame for an unsaved man to die.
This next monday the prices on fuel will experience another raise. In San Pedro, premium will rise .49 and regular .53. Now the gas will not last as long as it did before, and it will only keep on rising. This is what happens when we vote for the same people over and over again. With JOH we will have to endure hunger and high prices; but I am waiting to see if this have results, although previous facts have proven the contrary.

The new increase in taxes will make great profit for the government, and they already have their principal objective: relieve the public debt. This means that almost all of the governments tax income will be directed to public workers like teachers, IHSS employees, and others. I think that making this the prime objective is not a good idea since this only benefits public workers; on the other hand private workers will not receive any help. This 83% should be spent in something that will benefit the whole community.
The Oklahoma Capitol had a monument had put a monument of the Ten Commandments in 2012. Well the thing is that now Satanists are appealing for religion tolerance and want to place a statue of Satan next to the Ten Commandments. I know that people have freedom to choose their religion, but as a Christian to me it is offensive to put a statue of the devil right next to a monument of the holy law of God. If Satanists want to put their idol, at least they should respect that Christianity and Satanism are totally opposite religions.
