You Want Me To Give My Life For . . . What?

The rate of suicides and PTS amongst our veterans seems to rise as the nation's support for our wars drops. Probably just a coincidence, right?

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's a riddle to entertain your company around the holiday table:

What country has used the greatest wealth in the history of the world to create the mightiest army in the history of the world but never wins a war?

I Sense A New Contest Here!

. . . . or Levi's mother's book: "Going To Prison."
Or Track Palin's book: "Going To Iraq To Stop Being An Embarrassment To The Family."

Got any more suggestions? Let's see 'em!

Maybe Her Daughter Should Write A Book: "Going All The Way"

Sarah's "Going Rogue" has finally hit the bookstores. Mercifully (and understandably), her book tour will not include Alaska.

Let's see now:
-Failure as a governor
-Failure as a candidate for national office
-Failure as a parent

What better credentials for publishing a book about your life?

Pissing In The Wind For God And Country

The "tea party" idiots are still protesting against health-care reform. This is nothing new. These are the same people who protested:
-Rebellion against King George
-Ending slavery
-Women's suffrage
-Extending equal civil rights to all Americans

What these people are protesting against is progress. And history has proven over and over again that they will always lose.
Every . . . Single . . . Time.

Which Do You Need More Often--A Doctor Or A Lawyer? Now, Open Your Yellow Pages And Compare The Listings For These Two Professions

-1st in military spending
-1st in prison population
-1st in number of lawyers
-1st in size of insurance industry
-37th in health care

Does this really sound like the country most Americans want?

Insanity Defined

I still say it's all economics. Millions of impoverished men in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan have so little to live for that they will join a Jihad that supposedly gives them something to die for.

We support a corrupt government in Afghanistan which, through its failure to give any hope to its people, creates more and more "insurgents" every day--and we send more and more troops to fight them.
If this policy is not the definition of insanity, I don't know what is.

Zeus, Jupiter, Odin--Whatever Happened To Them?

An interesting theological musing:
All those old gods were eventually dismissed as the stuff of fairy-tales.
Why not expect the same fate for our God who is currently in fashion?

Quick--Do Something Stupid!

Obama's enemies are making much of his "dithering" over sending more troops to Afghanistan. Apparently, these people prefer the style of our last president who responded to the 9/11 attacks by rapidly and decisively doing the dumbest thing in American history.

"Tell A Lie Long Enough And It Becomes The Truth"--Adolph Hitler

GUNS! It's all about guns. Whenever I ask one of my Blue-Collar-Republican co-workers why he votes for the the people who are screwing him I get the same answer: "Them Democrats are trying to take away my guns."

I need some help here. Will someone please name the last law passed under a Democratic administration that limits our Second Amendment right to bear arms.
