"There's always a temptation... the middle of a long struggle to seek the quiet life, to escape the duties and problems of the world and to hope the enemy grows weary of fanaticism and tired of murder"...

..."We will keep our nerve and we will win that victory," he said.

my kind of president!

If you are interested...

…in hearing what the feller taking Jesse Jackson to Court has to say, then you need to look at…

World Net Daily.

A piece entitled…

Moral poverty cost blacks in New Orleans

is especially read worthy.

The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson gives a lot of people a reality check. It's easy to see how he the Rev. Jesse Jackson would have trouble sharing a podium!

This is an...

...observation from Linda at The Great Pumpkin...

An interesting juxtaposition

Today is:

Rosh Hashanah ("head of the year"/Day of Judgment/Day of Remembrance)
Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic year, a month of fasting for spiritual reasons)
The feast of St. Francis of Assisi (founder of the Franciscan order)

The first reading of today's mass was Jonah 3:1-10 where Jonah goes to warn Nineveh of its imminent destruction:

I have a...

…confession concerning Harriet Miers. The Frog is a Democrat. Actually he is a Jacksonian Democrat. In today’s terms, that would make him a Paleoconservative, somewhere slightly to the left of Ghengis Khan, and a little to the right of Louis XIV. You remember old Andy Jackson, the guy that said some thing like, “Well, now that the Court has ruled, let them enforce the ruling”.

#1 – I voted for Bush (both of them). I voted for Dubya because, under the circumstances, he was by and away the better choice. No friend of Hanoi Jane is, in any way, representative of me. I would have, and still would, cut off my left nut before voting for Senator Waffles the Clown, husband to Teresa the Ketchup Queen.

#2 – I don’t believe that the current choice for the S.C.O.T.U.S. is the most brilliant conservative mind available. But I do believe that she is a damnably good choice. And (being Paleocon / Jacksonian Democrat) I don’t think that we need anymore pointyheads in high places. One of the problems with S.C.O.T.U.S. is that it’s tilted way too far toward experts/academics/"good" school ties and way too far away from the sense that God gave a goose.

#3 – The best choice of legal minds would create a major floor fight/barroom brawl in the Senate. I am a fighter. Being a fighter has kept me alive for the last 42 years. I also know when not to fight. It is best not to fight when the people who are supposed to be watching your back have (all 50 plus of them taken together – the Weepublicans) the same amount of spine as 2 Jellyfish!

#4 – I am appalled that all the Demorats had to do to send the Weepublicans into complete disarray was for one major Demorat to say that he supported the choice even before anything was said or any facts were found by anybody. I can almost hear the buggers snickering in the cloak room about how easy it is to win a war before the first shot is fired in the battle.

#5 – while we’re talking military leadership, I can hear the Weepublican leaders shouting, “Ready! Fire! Aim!”

May you be totally unoffended in the days ahead.

Makes me tired...

This problem weighs heavily on me. It is definitely a case of “things that make me very tired” - #2 –

Business as Usual…

Ruben Navarrette, in his September 28th column in the San Diego Union Tribune, does far more concerning these 2 BUSINESS AS USUAL items than I could do in several long Rants…

Thing #1 – The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prevents the Military from becoming a POLICE FORCE in the various states. Excuse me, messing about with this is a serious STATES RIGHTS ISSUE!!!

Thing #2 - Mr. President and various elected and elected members of Congress, with all due respect, IT AIN’T BROKE… DO NOT SCREW AROUND AND TRY TO FIX IT!!!

And, a pat on the back to the military, whose stock went up several notches, for rapid and strong response to an incredibly bad situation. A special place in heaven will go to General ("You are stuck on stupid. I won’t answer that question.") Honore for his rapid and not vapid response to the MSM. Oh yes, and did I mention how much the self-serving-political-finger-pointing makes me tired!

I do not agree with all of Mr. Navarrette’s oped piece. But, I recommend it as reading for everbody…

Military shouldn’t be used as a
Giant police force…

The pot at the end of the rainbow. Now that I've found it, my Irish heart is Jigging with Joy and Celtic Abandon! Posted by Picasa
