Obama Not Honoring D-Day… Please!

Obama Not Honoring D-Day… Please!

Over the last week I have seen numerous people post on Facebook about Obama not honoring the memory of D-Day… as the only president in the last 68 years to snub the memory of the invasion. It looks something like the picture to the right. First of all, let me clarify something. I am not a fan of Obama. I am not a fan of Romney either. Probably even less…

McCain or Obama – Does It Really Matter?

I have mentioned before that in the grand scheme of things, Americans are putting WAY TOO MUCH emphasis on the outcome of this election.  Why? Because in the larger picture, no one president (even with a majority in the house or senate) can control your life… for the good or bad.  I am 100% behind McCain and Palin.  100%.  But, that doesn’t mean I am putting my hope in them. …

My Opinion On Democracy

Most people who have an opinion on democracy have never lived outside the U.S. to appreciate the freedom we have.  I have lived in countries with harsh dictators that ruled their country with an iron fist, and I have lived in countries with a ruling class.  All in all I have either lived or had a long term visit in 11 different countries.  That isn’t really that impressive, but it’s…

We Want A Third Choice

If there has ever been a time for an Independent to make a strong run for president this is the year. I would rather see George W. Bush in office for a 3rd term than to see Obama or McCain win the election. I was glad to see Hilary out of the race… couldn’t even fathom what would happen with her in office! I can’t stand the thought of Obama…

No Hope in Politics

I mentioned in my last post about a guy named Rich Mullins.  I met Rich on several occasions, and while I respected Rich for 99% of everything, I couldn’t get past his words about the American government.  Well, Rich could just see further down the road than me, and while I was looking through a fog, he was seeing clearly.  I’ve now come full circle. I hate politics.  I love…

What Do You Do If You Don’t Like Any Canidate??

I’ve got to be honest.  This is the weakest group of presidential candidates I think I’ve ever seen.  Eight years ago I was pretty excited about seeing Bush run for president.  I’d seen how he led Texas as a governor (where I live), and I was really impressed.  I’m certainly not dissatisfied with him as our president.  I don’t think any president could have done any better over the last…

Before Anyone Else Whines About the Cost of The War on Terrorism…

I receive the following email from a friend today.  Not the kind of stuff that the Democrats would want you to see or CNN – because it doesn’t fit into their agenda to bash President Bush.  This isn’t the kind of stuff that one administration is blamed for.  This is generations of presidential and congressional administrations passing the buck down the road until it’s out of control. I wonder how…

What Do I Want To Be When I Grow Up?

The other day I was talking with my daughter.  In her jr. high English class they were having a debate with the question, “Is it the girl’s choice only, or is the guy’s and girl’s choice to get an abortion?”  She came and asked my advice.  I told her – You’ll never get the right answer if you ask the wrong question.  I then told her that sometimes, asking the…
