My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Day 60

Lead, follow, or get the Hell out of my way, Mr. President!

Yes, friends, it has been 60 days since our President has received the report HE requested, by HIS hand picked General. The one that HE is supposed to use to direct HIS war (Afghanistan) HIS way! Not that I am any kind of analyst when it comes to military matters however, it does seem to me, perhaps only to me, the Taliban senses a weakness in our President's lack of resolve to make a life and death decision. It is easy to say what you will do once you are elected. It is totally another to follow through. It appears to me, perhaps only to me, President Obama cannot make the difficult decision. Now that is my ever so humble opinion regarding that.

Breaking news on most media channels The Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy Pelosi, will release her health care package tomorrow morning. I am sure someone all ready has copies. In the mean time for your reading pleasure here is a nice little blurb about said health bill and more of the DC elite MIS-SPENDING our money! Clik here, clik now.

I dislike Nancy. However, for some reason, I dislike the word "resolve" even more. It's very "Bushian". :)

Obama is waiting for the new Afghan election. I don't think he has a choice. The reports of fraud in the first election could not be ignored.

Anonymous, In the past this blog was...shall we say taken to task for saying the President lacked a pair of......! My use of the word resolve was my attempt to not use words that may be construed as the male genitalia

Bushin? OH please!


I don't discount the previous election appears to be saturated with fraud. That is no excuse on the part of President Obama to fail to follow his hand picked military Commander. The fact of a "run off" election has no bearing on the immediate need for additional troop strength. To quote General George Patton, "I don't like to pay for the same real estate twice". Pulling back into a stand down position means exactly that. Paying for the same real estate twice.

I agree completely. The Afghan election was a farse and therefore, something has to be done, but jumping the gun prematurely, would only set them up for failure.

Keeping with the theme, the President is not going to blow his load on Afghanistan while they are trying to fix the election mess. The Taliban senses that the Afghan government is going to ask the US for help, not necessarily that they sense weakness in the President. Then, once they have control over the insurgents, it will be another country like Pakistan or Somalia.

It's all just a little bit of history repeating...


Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
