We are and will be looking for the (Bright Morning Star) and will continue to shine as best we can.
What is the Morning Star?
"'Morning Star' is a name often used to describe the planet Venus. For part of each year Venus rises in the eastern sky, just before the sun. Since it is a very bright planet and at that time remains visible into the morning hours, it might be called a morning star even though it isn't really a star at all. During other parts of the year, Venus becomes an evening star. Then it sets in the west, after the sun. Whether visible in the morning or evening, Venus never moves very far from the sun because it is an inner planet. Mercury also qualifies as a morning and evening light, but it is more difficult to see.
"In Scripture the title morning star is used in three different ways. First, Job 38:7 describes angels as morning stars (or day stars) that sang together at the creation of the universe. Angels were part of the initial creation (Col 1:16) and thus became witnesses of the great event. Second, the king of Babylon is described as a morning star and also a fallen star (Isa 14:4,12). The evil leader fell from the highest position to the lowest, just as Satan did. Third, the Lord Jesus is described as 'the bright Morning Star' (Rev 22:16), which rises in our hearts (2 Peter 1:19). Early-morning stargazers often watch the eastern sky to see the brilliant planet Venus rise to signal a new day. As Christians--children of God--we are told to shine 'like stars in the universe' (Phil 2:15)."
9Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

AFP California Ballot Proposition Recommendations
November 2, 2010 California General Election
Proposition 19—Legalizes Marijuana (NO)
Legalizing marijuana will ultimately lead to higher costs of goods for average citizens. Proposition 19 will prohibit employers from administering drugs tests for marijuana, potentially costing businesses due to lost productivity and increased insurance costs. For instance, truck drivers will be able to consume the drug without fear of being fired for being under the influence. Drivers’ insurance rates would necessarily skyrocket to compensate for such risky behavior that cannot be monitored by employers. Trucking companies will then be forced to pass on their increased costs to the businesses they serve and the consumers who use their products. The potential state revenue for taxing marijuana isn’t worth the cost to businesses, customers or public safety.
No on Proposition 19 web site
Proposition 20—Redrawing of Congressional Districts Given to Redistricting Commission (YES)
In November 2008, California voters approved Proposition 11, which placed the power of redrawing state legislative districts in the hands of a 14-member commission. Instead of allowing politicians to carve out their own constituencies, citizens will now draw more equitable district lines. But under Proposition 11, federal legislative districts (Congress) were left out. Proposition 20 seeks to add the redrawing of congressional district boundaries to the commission’s oversight.
Yes on Proposition 20 web site
Proposition 21—Car Tax to Pay for Parks (NO)
Proposition 21 will assess an $18 tax on every vehicle license in order to pay for state parks. While the state parks’ budget has been cut, bringing back the car tax—which Governor Schwarzenegger did away with—is not the solution. Every California car owner will pay this tax, regardless of whether they visit parks.

Proposition 22—Sets aside Local Funding for Incorporated Cities (NO)
Proposition 22 is a difficult measure to evaluate, as arguments on both sides are compelling. It makes sense to protect local government from having their funds taken by the state government just to cover Sacramento’s irresponsible spending. But Proposition 22 is poorly written and may not do what it purports to do. While incorporated cities may be protected, unincorporated areas of California could be the subject of a state government money grab.

Proposition 23—Suspends AB 32 until Unemployment Decreases (YES)
Since it was signed into law, AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, California’s unemployment level has skyrocketed to over 12%. AB 32 is projected to destroy over a million jobs, burden businesses and taxpayers with intrusive regulations, cost the average small business $49,691 and cost the average family $3,857. Proposition 23 will suspend AB 32’s onerous regulations until unemployment returns to 5.5% for one year.
Yes on Proposition 23 web site
Proposition 24—Increases Taxes on Businesses (NO)
Proposition 24 would tax new job creation, placing a $1.3 billion tax on California small businesses each year. If passed this proposition would affect hundreds of thousands of businesses forcing small businesses out of California.
No on Proposition 24 web site
Proposition 25—Lowers Budget Approval Threshold from 2/3 to Simple Majority (NO)
The California Constitution requires the legislature to pass the budget by 2/3 vote. This ensures that the majority party must still consider the spending concerns of the minority party. However, this requirement has proven an obstacle to the tax-and-spend majority party that has ruled the state legislature. Their goal is to amend the state Constitution, remove the 2/3 vote budget requirement and allow budgets to be passed by simple majority. In addition to removing the protections of the minority party, Proposition 25 would make it easier to pass taxes on a simple majority vote.

Proposition 26—Defines Fee Increases as Taxes (YES)
Proposition 26 will make it more difficult for politicians to raise our taxes. Through a loophole in current law, taxes titled “fees” can be raised without 2/3 legislative approval. This loophole has been exploited to raise fees on taxpayers. It’s time to close the loophole and make politicians accountable.

Proposition 27—Eliminates State Commission on Redistricting (NO)
Proposition 27 is the exact opposite of Proposition 20. This ballot measure seeks to overturn Proposition 11’s establishment of the Citizens Redistricting Commission. This means politicians will once again have the power to draw the lines of their own districts and choose their constituents, rather than voters choosing them. Drawing district lines in a fair, balanced manner is crucial to ensuring representation protected from the self-serving interests of career politicians. The Citizens Redistricting Commission is a step in the right direction and should be upheld.
