Razzle Dazzle

Have you ever said something you later regret? If you are like me, than it may also be true that you may find yourself in situations where people are speaking a different language (e.g. Spanish, French, Chinese, etc.).

Are they talking in code?

Do you know of any celebrities that speak their mind regardless of what other people think? Ever heard of Kanye West? What about Dennis Rodman?

And worse, do you have any insecurities and often think people are talking about you? Gossip kills!

What about hand signals?

Most people who have ever been to a ballgame have noticed the 3rd base coach touching the brim on his hat, followed by his nose, then his ear, and his arm. Then he does it all over again in a different order.

Is the bunt on? Hit-and-run? Steal?

Well, in baseball coaches and players are signaling each other the entire game. The catcher is telling the pitcher to throw a fastball or curve ball. When there is a runner on 2nd base, then he has to decipher it even more.

More importantly, great teams have strategized any situation and will plan accordingly. They tell the fielders to shift when a heavy hitter gets up to bat. Or perhaps there is a 1st and 3rd situation and want to be alert.

Besides being a huge fan of baseball for the past 53 years, I also played for over 20 years including a recent stint 2012-2019. Back in 1993 I started coaching and have been doing that ever since. Now adays I really enjoy umpiring. And yes, we use signals to tell each other (e.g. 2-man, 3-man, or even WS with 6 umpires) what to do in any situation with base runners.

This past weekend my son and I came up with a signal when there was a good hitter or fast base runner. If he is pitching he needs to keep the runner close – attempt pickoff. And you never want to throw a fast ball down the middle to a 3-hole.

Is it politically correct to call someone a “midget”? What about “retarded”? Did you see the movie “Rainman”? Dustin Hoffman earns an academy award for playing the role of a man with autism. Watch => https://youtu.be/vqbXPfaN_VM

Unless you were living on the moon over the past year, you might be oblivious to the effects of COVID-19. There will always be conflict. Wars have been started over exchanging insults. Thus, the pandemic has only exasperated our society’s challenges with fear and differences.

LIFE, LIBERTY, AND CENSORSHIP?
The First Amendment establishes separation between church and state, meaning that religion has no place in the government.

The Bill of Rights reflects the Christian heritage of our nation. The idea of human dignity, that we are created in the image of God, forms the theological basis for human equality and our core principle of liberty (Genesis 1:27, Leviticus 25:10, Matthew 25:40, Mark 12:31).
