Paul Harvey — If I Were the Devil

Some have said that when Paul Harvey spoke it pretty much the gospel. This pretty much proves it.

“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

And then I’d get organized.  I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed.  And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame.  If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress.  And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct.  I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be.  And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.  In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing.  Paul Harvey, good day.”

School Board Meeting-January 9, 2012

I attended another school board meeting. I’ve got to say, those meetings need to be moved out of that office and to some place a little more friendly and with more room. It’s not a very inviting room to walk into. I’ve heard a few people comment on this before and I’ve got to say I agree. On the plus side there were copies of the agenda available at the door which I don’t think has been there in the past. But anyway, move the meetings, I think it’ll help with attendance.

On to the agenda.

First off let me say this. I wish more questions would be asked of the items. Now granted I’m not sitting there with all of the info in front of me so maybe that’s one reason why there isn’t more. Moving on.

1. Jon Wager = Board Chair, Bruce Lund = Vice Chair, Kendall Stelter = Clerk, Ann Jensen = Treasurer

2. It was decided to amend the last set of minutes (I think it was) to list the super’s salary and his perks and none perks individually for historical and legal reasons. Good idea.

3. So the One Act Play wants to move the lighting for one week for safety and training reasons. Now I don’t know what the set up is, but it doesn’t sound very safe. This was tabled for further discussion. Someone in the room (who shall remain nameless) seemed to cop an attitude about this for some reason. Not sure what that was about or perhaps I was seeing things.

4. The board decided to award the bid for the fire alarm equipment to Protection Systems. This is one area I would have liked to have heard more of a discussion. But again, I didn’t have the bids in front of me.

5. Flexible Learning Year. It was brought up that this issue was discussed at a recent superintendent’s meeting and the consensus was that they were against a 2 week earlier start. I’d like to know some of the reasons. Also a survey was conducted amoungst some of the school staff and it was overwhelming for staying the same. I’d like to know why.

So it sounds like the 2 week early start has been dropped and they are now looking at a 1 week early start. There are 2 meetings planned in January for the Public to ask questions, but apparently these are also game/event nights so I imagine attendance will be low. I sensed they think this may be a good idea. So did I. A MONTH AGO!! Any who. They need to vote on this before Feb. 1st.

6. Side note: During discussion of the week changes and how that’ll affect this or that, there was talk of trying to get the 2nd quarter done before “holiday” time. Hippie.

7. There was some budget talk. Nothing too interesting here. Next year’s attendance will be down due to a smaller Kindergarten class. Hey I did my part, one of those will be mine! No staffing cuts planned, so that’s good. Plans to try and upgrade technology at the school. I heard talk of  the need for a “technology guy”. Technology guy, where have I heard  that before? Oh yeah. Coming out of my mouth over A YEAR AGO!!

Where was I? Oh yeah.

8. There was a discussion on communications at the school. What upgrades need to be made. Training the staff will be taking to improve on their skills along with the kids. I’m not completely sold on iPad’s yet, but I suppose it’s a little too late now.

9. It sounds like there is going to be more of a focus spent on reading, more specifically the kiddos in the Pre-school to 3rd grade range. The high school staff is reading a book called “The Power of ICU”. I’m going to check that out and see what it’s about. The elementary side is reading “The Education of Little Tree”. It’s about diversity. Is there a more abused term than diversity? I think not.

That is pretty much the “highlights” of the meeting. I could have been worse. I could have been home trying to get the kids to bed. (love you Heather)

5. I would highly recommend not walking down any dark alleys. But if you do and you wake up in a tub of ice, stay in the ice and call 911. If you don’t have a cell phone on you, cause realistically you’re not going to still have it one you……crap… never mind. You’re screwed. I just hope you dressed nice to church.

6. How much you wanna bet those protest losers leave this guy alone? After all what would they do without their iPad’s and iPod’s?
