When it comes to attacking climate scientists, the alarmist Left has the market cornered. Left-leaning environmentalists, media and academics have long railed against the alleged conservative “war on science.” They augment this vitriol with substantial money, books, documentaries and conference sessions devoted to “protecting” global warming alarmists from supposed “harassment” by climate chaos skeptics, whom […]
People can become frustrated because they don’t have enough time to do everything they need to do. Too often they find that life doesn’t provide them enough time to do more than one or two things as well as they would like. It’s very important that we learn to manage our time. None of us want to have nagging regrets that we didn’t accomplish everything we hoped to do before our days run out.
As a youth I can recall President Eisenhower and, from the vantage point of many decades later, I am amazed at how effective and foresighted he was. As President, perhaps his greatest legacy was the creation of a system of interstate highways. He funded it with a gas tax and it literally transformed the nation economically and socially.
Sir Winston Churchill called General Robert E. Lee, quote ‘one of the noblest Americans who ever lived.’
Please let me call to your attention that Monday, January 19, 2009, is the 202nd birthday of Robert E. Lee, whose memory is still dear in the hearts of many Southerners. Why is this man so honored in the South and respected in the North? Lee was even respected by the soldiers of Union blue who fought against him during the War Between the States.
In case you have not noticed… Americans are arming themselves. Sales of those rifles the liberals like to refer to as “assault rifles” are so brisk, nationwide, that they are back-ordered for weeks and, in some cases, even months. (In the event you are unfamiliar with the term “Assault Rifle”… the common definition, by liberals and “gun-grabbers” of an assault rifle, is… a rifle that One: Looks scary” and Two: Holds more than five rounds!)
The modern political persuasion called Liberalism can be compared to a beautiful seductive temptress. Alluring and destined to feel good for a while, but after a fling with this wily ideology one is left realizing that the intoxicating goddess was more like a cheap prostitute. This seducer of the mind and soul leaves one intellectually and spiritually bankrupt, and infected with a life long hatred of tradition, morals and values. The Liberal or Progressive ideology is definitely a feel good political philosophy.
Don’t go out to your mailbox on Monday. The postal service celebrates Martin Luther King day. Coincidentally, many blacks in this country are choosing to take the next day off too. You have one man who is worthy of a legacy to celebrate, and one man who has done nothing but made promises to celebrate the next day. Regardless what he does with those promises, the postal service and other government agencies will celebrate a new federal holiday after the death of Barack Obama (if not sooner based on some sociological thought in this country).
If there are any two things that make me madder than heck, preening politicians and imbecilic members of the press suddenly becoming military experts is both of them! They try to direct military tactics from the safety and comfort of their plush offices, while prolonging the wars and, in my opinion, causing the needless deaths of soldiers in the field.
What is with all this positioning of Barack Obama as the next Abraham Lincoln?
Obama began his campaign in Springfield, Illinois, famed home of Lincoln. He returns there periodically for other announcements, but he still vacations in Hawaii.
We’re told Obama read a book about how Lincoln put together his cabinet, including “rivals” which one must presume means Hillary Clinton. The rest of his cabinet is mostly Clinton retreads and, predictably, some have already run into confirmation problems.
Two weeks ago, Ricks reported on a new publication by Army War College research professor Sherifa Zuhur on Hamas and Israel that informs readers that Hamas has been misunderstood due to the misreporting by “Israeli and Western sources that villainize the group.” Zuhur concludes that Hamas isn’t so bad after all, so we all just need to get along and embrace the terrorist group through negotiations — a view apparently endorsed by the Army War College when it published her defense of Hamas.
In an AFP report carried by Google, President Elect Obama’s designated Secretary of State uttered this cretinous comment in her confirmation hearing.
“strategy of smart power in the Middle East that addresses the security needs of Israel and the legitimate political and economic aspirations of the Palestinians”.
The security need of Israel is to be permanently and constantly free from attack and the threat of attack. Palestinians are Jews, not Arabs, not Muslims. Palestine is a corruption of a name imposed by Rome as an insult after a rebellion against Roman occupation of Israel. Get a clue; read the history.
Long forgotten is Marjorie Valbrun’s Washington Post Article titled Black Like Me? In less than 24 months, blacks have gone from asking if Obama is black enough to celebrating his blackness. One must wonder how deep their loyalty is to the chosen one, especially if the government fails to deliver on the expectations of blacks like Peggy Joseph.
There is so single leader of the Taliban who can call a truce and sign a surrender document to end the war in Afghanistan. Twenty years from now the US will still have troops slogging around the godforsaken hills and valleys of that country searching for someone to kill or pacify, yet unable to leave for lack of an enemy leader to wave the white flag.
Have you seen enough of it yet? Or do you desire more of the world’s flaming Antisemitism marching in the streets of the world’s capital cities? Do you need more of this hatred, and bigotry, and shameful behavior of a world gone every bit as mad as a hatter? Do you need to see more before you understand that the loathing of the Jew, today, is every bit as bad as it was when Hitler strode the European, Asian and African continents with his “SS”, and his storm troopers, and his Gestapo, and set up his concentration camps and gassed 6 million Jews, burning their bodies in huge ovens and burying others in mass graves in the European soil?
We are well into a major Recession and I think most people are betting on the stupidity and cupidity of our nation’s leaders, elected and appointed, to ensure that it happens. One need only look at previous efforts to effect some control over the economy while, at the same time, running it into the ground.
