Thanksgiving - by Mark | November 21, 2007, 10:48:06 PM
In 1789, George Washington, gave the following Thanksgiving day proclamation.  Notice how many times he invokes references to our creator and pay particular attention to his statement regarding religion AND science.  A man so great does not walk the earth often enough.

Quote
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor -- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."
 Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be -- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks -- for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation -- for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the tranquility [sic], union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed -- for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted -- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.  
 
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions -- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually -- to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed -- to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn [sic] kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord -- To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease [sic] of science among them and us -- and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York
the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington

This is sad....and very dangerous - by Mark | September 06, 2007, 01:57:41 PM
This poll shows that 42% of Democrats think Bush either caused 9/11 or let it happen.  This would be funny if it weren't so dangerous.  When nearly 1/2 of a political party believes the 'other' major political party leaders are actively engaged in plots to kill thousands of their own countryman...one weeps for the future of one's country.

UPDATE:  And on the heels of the poll above....Osama 'crazy beard man' Bin Laden proclaims:
Quote
“People of America: the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war there.”

At least my wife is getting healthier while the rest of the world goes completely insane.  Somehow....I bet the Democrats will use his new video as a way to bash Bush...instead of realizing America's biggest enemy believes they are a tool in his arsenal for defeating the country they claim to protect.

Give me Give me Give me - by Mark | April 16, 2007, 11:02:41 AM
US Citizens are a bunch of mooches.

Quote
Slightly over half of all Americans – 52.6 percent – now receive significant income from government programs, according to an analysis by Gary Shilling, an economist in Springfield, N.J. That's up from 49.4 percent in 2000 and far above the 28.3 percent of Americans in 1950. If the trend continues, the percentage could rise within ten years to pass 55 percent, where it stood in 1980 on the eve of President's Reagan's move to scale back the size of government.

We are doomed as a country, if we do not start getting this under control.

Michael Totten in Lebanon “So This Is Our Victory” - by Mark | January 13, 2007, 12:46:23 AM
MIchael Totten has another report from Lebanon.  He meets a Lebanese named Henry who had this to say:

Quote
“We have been screaming about this conflict for 30 years now,” Henry said as he dealt himself a hand of Solitaire from a deck of cards in his pocket. “But no one ever listened to us. Not until September 11. Now you know how we feel all the time. You have to keep up the pressure. You can never let go, not for one day, one hour, not for one second. The minute you let go, Michael, they will fight back and get stronger. This is the problem with your foreign policy.

“Since 1975 we have been fighting for the free world,” Said said. “We are on the front lines. Why doesn’t the West understand this? America can withdraw from Iraq, you can go back to Oregon, but we are stuck here. We have to stay and live with what happens.”

Seriously powerful reporting there.  Once again, I weep for the trainwreck that is the Middle East.  Each day I pray for a miracle, but one never seems to come.  We Americans take pleasure in the relative safety of our borders.  Folks like Henry cannot....they live surrounded by death and destruction each day because they have no where to run.  Godspeed Henry.

How to win Peace in Iraq? - by Mark | December 17, 2006, 02:03:04 PM
This presentation was prepared by Capt. Travis Patriquin who was killed by an IED in Iraq on Wednesday.  It very clearly lays out how Iraq should have and possibly could still be set on the path towards peace.  Even a grade schooler can see this makes sense.

Why do our political leaders not see the path that Capt. Patriquin understood to be obvious?  My guess....most of our political leaders are opportunistic, self-absorbed, lawyer scum only thinking of re-election and how to spend our money as fast as humanly possible.  Most the US leadership class is a fowl stink of crap compared to years past.  Our military suffers, our citizenry suffers, the world suffers, and most of all, we each begin to lose faith and patience against those that would chop off our heads, because our leaders do not educate and do not learn from their mistakes. 

The storm clouds are gathering....and each day we lose people like Capt. Patriquin who understand war, understand enemies, understand true allies, and understand the threats to the world.  There will only be so many of these amazing warriors willing to die, if our leadership and citizenry does not continue to back them up and listen to them.

UPDATE:  There is plenty of good news in Iraq.  Iraq's economy is booming.  We need to do better to encourage the economy further though....because until most people have a good paying job, some of those unemployed will continue to fight.

Quote
Civil war or not, Iraq has an economy, and—mother of all surprises—it's doing remarkably well. Real estate is booming. Construction, retail and wholesale trade sectors are healthy, too, according to a report by Global Insight in London. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce reports 34,000 registered companies in Iraq, up from 8,000 three years ago. Sales of secondhand cars, televisions and mobile phones have all risen sharply. Estimates vary, but one from Global Insight puts GDP growth at 17 percent last year and projects 13 percent for 2006. The World Bank has it lower: at 4 percent this year.

Election 2006 post mortem - by Mark | November 08, 2006, 08:22:51 PM
Congrats to the Democrats.  Now they have a turn at flushing our country down the drain, stealing my money, and opening the borders to any immigrant who wants in (legal or not).

It will be a nice pleasure to have a different bunch of incompetent, ignorant thieves running the government.

My message to the Republicans.  When you govern like drunken liberal Democrats, Americans will go ahead and figure why not vote the real thing in instead.

My message to the Democrats.  It sure was nice to see you put up some people for election who were not outright socialists and anti-American.  I only hope you purge your elitist, liberal, open borders leadership.  I doubt that will happen, but one can hope.

My message to all Americans who voted.  Thank you for believing in our system and voicing your opinion clearly and loudly.  Everyone who did not vote needs to shut their damn mouth for the next two years...you lost your right to complain when you failed to vote.

Despotism & Democracy: The Movie - by Mark | August 05, 2006, 09:11:15 AM
I ran across this today: "Despotism & Democracy: The Movie".  I film from 1946 is surprisingly very relevant even today.
