Son of a Blagojevich

Son of a Blagojevich
One governor's questionable pedigree

That son of a Blagojevich
got caught attempting to get rich
by auctioning Barack's old seat
down on the Senate floor.
"Hot Rod" may soon be packed in ice
in Illinois' Big House for vice.
What really bugs him is the law
at which he thumbs his nose.
Old "Honest Abe" turns in his grave.
The land that bears his name is scathed
by yet another Springfield don
who smacks of Al Capone.
Good Lord, what makes such guys go bad?
With all the crooks Chicago's had
you'd think they'd opt to stand up tall
to prove it's possible.
A Shrine to "No Belief"
Yet another Governor raises eyebrows

Out west in liberal Washington
the atheists think they have won.
Beside a Christmas tree there stands
a shrine to "No Belief."

A shrine that's just a silly sign
attesting there is no design
in history or the universe
and certainly no God.

Okay, that's their opinion
(uninformed as it is).

But why protest a Christmas tree
alongside a nativity?
Don't Christmas trees have pagan roots?
Aren't creches cultural?

The White House has a Douglas Fir.
It's what we do. Don't you concur?
An evergreen with twinkling lights
is just America.

Our PC left-wing governor
won't stand up to (she just ignores)
those Bozos with their Humbug ploys.
How foolish can you be?

And in despair I bowed my head.
Does Chris Gregoire think God is dead?
Or is she Ebenezer Scrooge
in need of Marley's ghost?

RE: "Okay, that's their opinion" ("uninformed as it is").

The uninformed celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25th. Bible scholars say their is Biblical evidence that points to Jesus birth sometime in the spring. Biblical scholars do not know the actual date. But the fact that Joseph and Mary were going home for the census suggests that it was almost certainly for one of the three big Jewish festivals: Pesach (Passover), Succoth, or Shavuot. Other evidence makes a springtime birth the most likely, so that would make the most likely time to be around Pesach in about 4 BC (Jesus was not born during 1 AD; we now know that the calendar was miscalculated). December 25th is for commercial reasons. A good guess from Scriptures and history is Jesus birthdate was on September 29, 5 B.C. December 25th was the pagan's Winter Solstice and the Christians wanted to absorb the pagan's celebration. The birthdate mystery is compounded by no ACTUAL records of Jesus birth; we don't even know for sure that Jesus ever lived, historically speaking, so we're even further away from knowing his actual date of birth. Thus, the right to believe or not to believe shares equal space. Takes more than believing to make things so!!!! Takes facts!

MORE important evidence that Christmas is a Bah Humbug--

Disproves a December date for Christ's birth:

According to Biblical referance, at the time of Jesus's birth, the shepherds tended their flocks in the fields at night. "Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night" (Luke 2:8). A common practice of shepherds was keeping their flocks in the field from April to October, but in the cold and rainy winter months they took their flocks back home and sheltered them. As these shepherds had not yet brought home their flocks, it is a presumptive argument that October had not yet commenced, and that, consequently, Jesus was not born on the 25th of December, when no flocks were out in the fields; Jesus could not have been born later than --September, as the flocks were still in the fields by night. On this very ground the nativity in December should be given up. The feeding of the flocks by night in the fields is a chronological fact, which casts considerable light upon this disputed point.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
