Presidential Horse Doody

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Some people have been complaining for years about the quantity of horse poo shoveled by the Bush administration.  The constant question is, where does he come up with all of it?  After extensive historical research, I am finally able to answer the question:

This is from an 1875 atlas of Philadelphia, at 15th and Columbia Ave.  This is now the home of Temple University — I’ll refrain from the jokes about fertil(izing) young minds…

“Shut the heck up” politics

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Bush gets beat up for replacing U.S. Attorneys.  Obama gets attacked for the church he attends.  Chelsea Clinton gets pestered about her father’s affair(s).  McCain seems to get in trouble with every endorsement he receives.  None of these things are real issues, but rather distractions used by the media and the division-mongers among us to produce discord and cause pain.

The problem is most of the leaders of our country sold out long ago and became panderers.  Once you start pandering, you can’t stop — as with lies, it becomes an endless, downward spiral.  You have to keep changing your stories and answering to those who really shouldn’t be calling the shots.

I long for the day when our leaders will take some leadership and say, “enough already!”


Appeasement Hits Close to Home

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

So President Bush was in Israel to commemorate the 60th anniversary of its founding, and he gave a speech before the Knesset. In that speech, he said we shouldn’t negotiate with the terrorists who proclaim death to the Jews and death to the Americans, and with those whose very raison d’etre is to destroy Israel:

As witnesses to evil in the past, we carry a solemn responsibility to take these words seriously. Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century.

Seems pretty straightforward, but Obama and other Democrats seem to think that Bush’s comments were directed squarely at them. They feel offended at being unfairly accused (even though Bush never mentioned anybody) of “appeasement.” Now tell me this: if Obama’s sure the anonymous “accusation” is false, why’s he so upset about it? Something tells me that Bush’s words hit very close to home for a lot of the “quick and easy peace” Democrats.

So far I’ve written nothing original, just summarized a little news. So what’s my contribution to this discussion? How about we put this in some biblical perspective?
