Former President Gerald Ford

Former President Ford has waited until he is in the beyond beyond to criticize the Iraq War effort and current President Bush. We know this because now it's a leading tidbit of information the newsmedia hounds are all salivating over. This disposition alone will probably put him on the liberal media's top presidents of all times list. I have to wonder how a great bi-partisan uniter of our country in one of it's darkest hours felt about another former president who was dawdling with interns and staining the oval office with bodily fluids while a threat was building that will take lifetimes to eliminate?

Of course whatever President Ford felt about former President's Carter and Clinton will never see the light of day on any National news programs. Not that that really matters much anyway. In some of President Fords interviews recently replayed he stated that His Presidency still cannot be completely evaluated because events are still taking place, and only historians with the proper perspective of time can truly judge just how effective his administration actually was. That should be a sobering reminder in and of itself to US all. The myriad ways our national interests can be threatened at any one time cannot be quantified on a day by day analysis.

Enter Bob Woodward, has he been out of the limelight too long? Maybe he feels like he's fading when Matt Lauer's bright lights aren't warming his cold flesh for a couple weeks. Maybe the vindication alone will provide enough energy to write another best-seller. At least he could have waited until President Ford was buried to dig up some dirt and spin the death of a president into another reason we should all hate President Bush. As expected as the hit pieces are, it still amazes me how low some will go to advance themselves and their agenda.

World Newswatch, December 27, 2006

The U.N. is at it again, it sure seems that their resolutions are usually siding with the Islamic Militant groups, though.
President Ford has passed away, I'm not sure he will receive the love that Reagan did, maybe not even James Brown.Timing is everything.

Christmas is a hurdle.

Christmas should be a time of thanksgiving and fellowship.
WHY oH wHY do I always just want to get through Christmas.
It should be a time to enjoy and savor.
Not a time to stress and worry over.
Please God let me feel the real meaning of Christmas.
It is always the most stressful time of year in the construction industry.
My life is based on my career.
But ever since I can remember Christmas has been a time of striving to get everybody a present or get in touch with everybody that you know and letting them know that you love them.
All these things are granted to be manifest, however they still must be accomplished.
However I can pull it off.
Create a Calamity;

America wants to survive. California wants to survive , everybody wants to survive.
Christians want to survive. Jewish people want to survive. Muslims want to survive.
See, we all have something in common.
We all need to stay warm, and cool in the summer.
Everybody wants to be loved... by God.
When we all realize that we are all hanging by a thread.

In The Name Of ... What The ?

This practice around the world of abasing your womenfolk is as reprehensible and unfathomable as a sane human being can try to comprehend. In India, China, Africa, and all the cesspools of the Middle East the practice of downtrodding or eliminating the fairer sex is worthy of the most strident condemnation sane God fearing people of the world can muster. I guess seeing what those attitudes bring upon their respective cultures is all the evidence we need as to the folly of this rationale.

At the root of this phenomena must be the misogynistic tendency toward domination. Oedipalism equals the powerlessness the tribal lifeline offers in groupthink mentality. But the routine of elevating maleness throws the delicate balance off it's centrifugal center. Only the most aggressive males can benefit from a system that inevitably shrinks the female population down to subserviant and second-class status. Infanticide and abortion are tools that weed out those deemed less worthy. But can't the overall populace feel how constricting it must be to lose half of your actual community? But really lose so much more than that. Like collective conscience, we all know that the female nature is more nurturing and could I say, reasonable? And also motivating, the old saying "behind every good man, there's a good woman", still carries the day, in my mind. In retrospect can't all of the problems in the middle-east be traced back to the way they treat their women? I truly think so.

Open lines of communication with those who know God loves us all, or talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy of frustration.

Setting The Stage

Life comes at us, fast, sometimes too fast. Yesterday some kid was speeding onto the freeway and tried to pass someone on the onramp. He misjudged and spun out across lanes and into oncoming traffic. Now he's dead, and his family must be grieving. There's a trucker out there who saw it all happen right in front of his eyes and now he has to live with the thought that he squashed some kid.

Whatever made that kid think he had to make a dangerous move like that now seems so trivial and inconsequential. Was he late to school or to work? Or was he just one of these jackasses you see on the road every day making boneheaded moves while speeding around, a danger to all those around them. Motor cyclists do the same thing , I see it every day, and when I hear about a tragic wreck I always hope it is the little(or big) @ssholes making stupid moves that are the ones that go down.

Anyone can make a mistake, though, and it is always unfortunate when someone young and inexperienced doesn't get a second chance. Some peoples karma is so instantaneous they pay right away. And then there are some people who always seem to get away with transgressions, flouting the law and other people's feelings. Someday we must all pay, there will be a reckoning. Do we get a reward? Or do we get a bill? And can we afford the cost if we do get a bill?

It's In The News.

Right there for all to see. We are losing in Iraq because people are dying. I guess losing is happening all around the world then. Like in Naples, Darfur,China, Indonesia, you name the country, you can find a human tragedy or two or a thousand. Defining how we are doing in Iraq by how many Iraqis kill each other is about the most assinine calculus I could ever imagine. Do I have to research and publish death counts from Saddams tenure, or even the oligarch before him? If the American people are so stupid to fall for this ploy to unnerve our effort to succeed we will certainly drink the cup of woe to the dregs. If we had a united front I am certain Iraq would be solved and Iran would be worried about how we were going to deal with them. Playing politics has cost and will continue to cost many people their lives. The only comfort I can draw from this is that it has gone on since time immemorable and here we are, still alive. But I can't stop thinking about all those who are no longer alive, and what difference they might have made.

If we looked at anything through such a prism as Iraq's sectarian violence I believe we would be paralyzed to ever move again. When the pest control company comes to spray my house oh my God! Maybe some of the ladybugs, or a praying mantis might get killed. When I yield the right of way on the highway maybe the other motorist will then be on time for the head-on accident. When I pull all the weeds out of the flower bed. When it rains when you are replacing your roof. You give the outside cat some food but the rat's eat it, too. After you pay your employee he goes out partying and get's a D.U.I. You eat a salad but there's E. Coli on the spinach leaves. Even when it's a spare the air day we still have to breathe.

There is a clash of civilization going on right now in the middle-east. An all out idealogical war. It cannot be avoided by study groups or appeasement policies. One side would like to dominate the region and the other side seeks a semblance of stability. Democracy there obviously can't look like Democracy here. Even if we did not need any resources from there we still have friends to look after. When we are willing to let a friend be beleaguered our own humanity will be diminished.

Repulsion has been instilled in our psyches for a good reason. An early warning of potential danger. Poop stinks, violence unnerves, heat, the growl from a dangerous animal, it's all there to warn us to beware. The unrest in the middle-east is the same, spiritual warfare on the center stage.

December 7,1941 A day not so long ago.

A day of infamy, and a wake up call to America. September 11,2001 much the same. Today will be the last gathering together of all the survivors of Pearl Harbor. This great generation is passing away. In reading about the reunion a few things struck me, the allusiveness of these defining moments, and just how history can repeat itself.
In 1938 the survivors of the civil war had their final reunion. They met at Gettysburg and shook hands, remembering fallen friends and relatives, heroes and villains. A few short years later America was drawn into a global conflict we had to win. That generation passed quietly into the night,like all those before them, and all that will follow. They fought to preserve what they thought was good and right. Fortunately the side that was right won. Maybe that war was not as important in the grand scheme of things, maybe it was. Our nation stayed whole and has been a force for good in the world ever since.
Today the members of the 'greatest generation' will gather together officially for the last time. And out there on the horizon is another global conflict about to erupt. I hope and pray America will stand strong once again and make history proud of US. We can and will be victorious if we stay united and focus on the goal of continuing to be a guiding light in the world for freedom and service to our fellow man. Tirelessly trying to make the world a better place. The greatest legacy anyone can leave is to leave the world a better place than when you got there. We can do this.

Attributions: Thought Police.

Liberals vs. Conservatives. Maybe this time [you can insert any instance] we need to accept a possible opposite motive for someones deeds toward ourselves. Whenever an individual {(myself included) or nations, teams , parties, religions, or whatever idiom you would like to insert} arbitrarily assigns a motive to another persons* perceived actual motivation on any particular incident there is a possibility of being up to 180 degrees dead wrong. Linearly speaking. . . So if we just relax and give one another an ounce of credibility, maybe we can see their side of the story, their angle. Maybe they do mean well for us, but our suspicions won't allow us to accept it in the spirit it was given.

Then what? The whole world wants to live in peace and harmony, right? But what kind of peace? Peace brought on by Sharia Law? Or mushrooms? Christianity? The home team winning? It has got to be peace by the divine purpose being fulfilled. Not materialistic, but spiritual, eternal, and complete.

Remember to assume makes an ass out of you and me.
