Defining terms is the most important process in debating with reason and logic. If you can't agree on the base premise of a definition, the debate cannot take place. If freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly are considered harassment and intimidation, then this country is doomed and the Constitution will be replaced by Shariallah. We will all be held accountable as to our role in that outcome.
There's an old saying — "Each day is God's gift to you." Your gift to God is what you do with it. I have determined to live my life as a thank you gift to my gracious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want to suggest to you that if you will adopt this attitude of Thanksgiving, it isn't just a holiday; it's a lifestyle. If you live your entire life as a Thanksgiving gift or a thank you gift back to God for all of the good things that he has done for you, it's going to increase your happiness in life. It's going to increase your level of meaning and satisfaction in life.

I read the new column, "A View From An Economist" and was a little disappointed that Dr. Brux decided to leave out some actual facts about the current Republican tax proposal and instead decided to make some partisan points.

Hudson Hospital & Clinic is looking for more volunteers to work with patients who are at risk for developing delirium during their hospital stay. Delirium, which can develop in a matter of hours, is a sudden change in mental status or sudden onset of confusion. Delirium is more common among older people who are admitted to hospital. Through the Hospital Elder Life Program, or HELP, volunteers sit and talk with patients, play games and do puzzles, offer magazines and adult coloring books, and help patients order lunch among other activities.
