Power and Corruption

Power and Corruption

I read this verse from the Bible and even though it was written thousands of years ago one place from today immediately came to mind.

The Fools Will No More Be Called Noble

The Fools Will No More Be Called Noble

Isaiah 32:5

PAYMENT DUE!

It’s tax day tomorrow so I thought I would run this post again.

Over the weekend I did the one thing that is pretty much guaranteed to put me in a bad mood.  I did my income tax returns.
