Blah blah blah

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

And thank the Lord he is!

Everyone has a boss!

The Supreme Boss is always the same. "Surely the Lord God will do nothing save He reveal His word through His servants the Prophets".


I know, isn't it wonderful that the gospel and it's teachings don't change just because to mantle of leadership is passed on!


Since his boss is the the same yesterday, today, and forever. I don't know why you would think any differently!?


Thank goodness!

Kinda Funny

Interesting that we get a comment like the one above in an article which quotes Pres. Monson asking people to love each other.

Just be better!

Dear Blah blah blah, Just exactly what is wrong with anything Pres. Monson said? Or are you one of those who just like being contentious? You know, he even warned us about that as well. I love that I'm always being challenged and reminded to be better and do better. Our family has had a hit-and-miss program of family study and prayer over the years, but our children have turned out to be remarkable people (other people's words, not ours). I give all the credit for that to the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ that they received in our home, at church, in seminary, and among good friends. Now go and have a wonderful, joy-filled day.

Dear NEW BOSS, SAME OLD BOSS commentor:
That's because most of the employees are the same OLD employees.
No need to remind complaining employees IF they would but "DO THE JOB" and "DO IT PROPERLY".
Heavenly Father "PAYS us" richly moment by moment, unlike most "bosses" who tend to fire those who complain and not work. We are sustained in our very breath. As children of God, we tend to not obey our heavenly parent, and "DO OUR THING".
Internal joy and peace only comes by "COMING UNTO CHRIST". He IS OUR TRUE BOSS, just as Heavenly Father is Christs' true boss.
When we grow up sufficiently, we have learned to love a true leader and mentor. I personally met Pres. Monson in 1965 in Sydney Australia. I sang for him. Met him again in a sweet loving interview in Nashville Tennessee after regional conference.
I KNOW, by prayer and asking that he IS A TRUE PROPHET and incredibly reliable BOSS for us all.
God Bless our Prophet....and all his faithful followers.

I testify it is the church of Jesus Christ not Gordon B. Hinckley or Thomas S. Monson. The "old boss" is STILL the "old boss".

bless your heart

you must be having difficult times in your life

Re: blah blah

Bite your tongue buddy! Pres. Monson is following suit because it is so important. Listen and take heed blah blah boy.

Never get it...

People never get it. You know why they always seem to repeat the same things over and over? Because we never get it the first time (or the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th...).


How thankful I am for a prophet-to guide us in these latter days.


Thank goodness they are the same. It shows that they are both listening to God and not man.

The "new boss" is the same as the "old boss" because they both receive their guidance and direction from the same source - Jesus Christ always has been and still is the head of the Church and not man! That's why the message is the same. I gather from your comment Blah Blah Blah, that you expected something different. It will never ever happen!


I found this talk very uplifting and much needed to be heard by all. The family is most important. I have always taught my children, that friends come and go but you will always have your family. And if these principals which Pres. Monson spoke about are learned in the home children and parents will be much happier.

And a small note to the person who left the comment at 1:41am: I'm really glad that as you put it "that the new boss is the same as the old boss". I admired Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley and I'm so glad to see that Pres. Thomas S. Monson also understands the importance of the family unit and is not afraid to say so.


Isn't it great?

Re: Blah blah blah

Might we suggest that you (and all others like you) check the titles of the articles BEFORE you read them. Then you won't end up reading something that causes you to feel that you need to comment blah blah blah.

To blah blah blah...

The things the prophets say and have always said are for those who have"ears to hear". Whether you believe Pres. Monson is a prophet or not, how would the things he counseled be harmful to anyone? Please be more respectful of our beliefs and we will grant you the same respect.
