Gun Control

After another school shooting, America is left mourning the loss of innocent victims and the conversation of gun control is yet again at the forefront of our discussion. Some say the 2nd Amendment should be left untouched and others say just enforce the law in place. However, it is harder to get a driver’s license than it does to get a gun. Shouldn’t something be done to protect the right to life?

The Pope Takes America

In case you were living under a rock this past week you may have missed the big hoopla about the Pope visiting the United States.  It was a pretty big deal. The first family greeted him at the airport, he made a house call over at Capitol Hill, spoke with the folks at the UN and chilled with the those less fortunate. Outside of having mass and christening babies, he made a few speeches that ruffled people’s feathers.  Okay the truth is, I have no idea if these people were really offended or maybe it was just a slow news cycle.  The topic at hand was “is the Pope too liberal?”

I don’t know why we are so quick to make everything a political agenda. The Pope is not running for president of the world, he’s not out trying to topple governments.  He’s just spreading the gospel. I’m not sure he wants you to “give and give until we are poor” just more like be more conscious and practice true religion of taking care of those less fortunate (James 1:27).  These folks making me preach and it ain’t even Sunday!

Take a look at the Weekly Update for Sweet Tea and Sass and let me know what you think.

Internet Manners

It is true what they say, they internet has no chill whatsoever. I’m learning that people can be so cleaver but lately I’ve been feeling somewhat convicted for laughing at something that in real life is just flat out mean. If our virtual conversations reflect how we treat others in real life then humanity is filled with heartless bullies.

Would you really say what you share on line to someone’s face? Could we get away with the stuff we say in real life? Are celebrities excused because they are famous? Does the rule “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” apply to the world wide web?

I want to know your thoughts.  Watch my latest video blog and let me know what you think.

Fresh Goes Better

*Cue up 90’s jingle* Fresh goes better, Mentos freshness, fresh goes better with Mentos, fresh and full of life!mentos
Bad breath— A problem that effects many—and I’m not talking about those who are the carriers of the breath but those of us who are witness of the funk. I’m not saying that at times we don’t experience our own bouts with unpleasant breath—like first thing in the morning, after eating onions or garlic, and sometimes even occasional stale breath.


But I’m talking about those with consistently questioning—nope not questioning—undoubtedly appalling breath. This is the breath that is as much as part of them as them as their skin color.
I’m sure that it is uncomfortable for folks who have been diagnosed with dragon breath—but what about those who seem to be oblivious to their own perpetual condition?

These folks walk around with total disregard for personal space. You know the ones—the ones that will lean over and whisper in your face spewing a sentence full of unnecessary ‘H’ words. You are stuck there holding back your tears, trying to dodge the menacing bully and dreaming of making it rain listerine strips.

Clearly, nd them to keep their mouth shut. Everybody knows that this person has rank odor floating from their mouth but this person has obviously never been tortured by the onion sauna stewing in the back of their throat. It is so bad and they don’t even know it. If they did know it they would make it their duty to chew more gum. All. Of. The. Time


The real question is what to do in these moments? Of course if this person is a dear friend, you can say “Bruh Mentos never hurt anyone.” But when you don’t know the person that well or the person is a boss—its not so easy. Do they know they know that their very presence is ever offending? I’ve witnessed several beautiful personalities fall victim to (at no fault of their own) pungent breath. They’ve been picked last for kickball, ignored as romantic prospects and overlooked for promotions.


Other than matrix dives, rounds of freeze tags, and avoiding all forms of communications I haven’t figured out the best way to deal with folks dealing with putrid orifices. Again, I know it’s not their fault and I’m not trying to be mean, I’m simply asking “How do you deal with the funk?” Leave a comment and let me know!
