Sometime we just need a bit of good news

It's very easy to become discouraged. Bad news (not a difficult thing to find) can be like a hornet at a picnic, one tiny insect ruining a perfect day.........or it can be like a tsunami, completely overwhelming everything in it's path.

Good news is the same, and today there is a small bit of good news that completely changed my outlook after a very tough day.

Read this post on Michael Yon's Online Magazine and see how it affects your outlook.

The first Democrat to criticize Cindy Sheehan

If Democrats want to be taken seriously as American patriots, willing and able to defend the U.S. from our foes, then they need to speak out against the insane anti-war/anti/Bush voices in their party. Ed Koch, the former mayor of New Your City did that very thing today in this commentary (thanks to about the psychotic ranting of Cindy (the mother of U.S. hero Casey Sheehan).

It seems that every major politician in the Democrat party either agrees with Cindy and her nutcase, communist, totalitarian dictator supporting friends, or tolerates them. The Democrats in the media idol's her because they think she and her "movement" may take President Bush down, something they could not do with their made up stories about "stealing elections" and Bush's Texas Air National Guard days.

Now mind you, I hope the Democrats don't condemn Cindy or her insane message, because I'd like to see their party continue being irrelevant for the next 20 years or more. With all the "contenders" for the Democrat's nomination for the presidency in 2008 voting against John Roberts, ranting on about how Bush is responsible for quatrain, and completely void of valid ideas about real issues, I don't think I have much to worry about.

"Milbloggers".......I wish there were more of them

There is not much I'd rather read these days than what military personnel deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan write. One of the best sources of such writing is Ma Deuce Gunner. This post is a great example of how the men and women in our armed forces think. The final paragraph not only answers a skeptic's question, but tells the reader everything about this fine young soldier.

Fantastic Commentary by Donna Brazile

With Bush hatred being psychosis for most democrats I expect to read and hear bizarre rants on a regular basis. What I read today was shocking. Donna Brazile praising the President and his plan for rebuilding New Orleans.

Read it yourself here.

It's worth bearing in mind that Donna Brazile is considered to be the image shaper of democrat presidential candidates. I hope some of her rubs off on some of them.

Reflections From The Battlefield

When Lcpl Tyler was in Iraq, from August 2004 until March 2005, many friends and family would phone or e-mail us to find out how we were doing, and more importantly how Tyler was doing. We did not hear from Tyler often enough to give us a sense of how things were over there or how he really was, so we found comfort anything at all we could read about events in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. One great source of comfort was the e-mails a friend (Valerie) would forward to my Clyrinda (my beautiful Dove). Valerie is a very close friend of Chief Petty Officer Ryan Krause, a Navy Corpsman who was in Ramadi for much the same period of time Tyler was in Husaybah. NOTE.......Husaybah is in the news nearly every day right now as it is a terrorist hotbed.......

In addition to being a Corpsman, CPO Ryan is pastor of a church in Temecula CA. He would send his "Reflections from the Battlefield" to his friends and family via e-mail, which were then forwarded to literally thousands of people. We found the reflections to be both informative and comforting, as Pastor Ryan would always focus on how God is still in control and working in the midst of the storm of war. His reflections are now part of a book which was released on 9/11 2005.

Blame Bush? I don't think so

Powerline just posted this story. I am heartened by facts that fly in the face of pessimistic the Bush bashing left.

Two Americas?

The theme of Senator Edwards campaign for the Democrat nomination during the 2004 Presidential election was "Two Americas". He tried to divide the US between the "haves and the have nots", the idea being that those who feel like "have nots" would vote for him. I think there indeed are two Americas, but not the two Edwards talked about, and I think the US may be on the brink of an actual divide.

What are these two Americas? Read this, written by a leftist democrat blogger, then I will finish my thoughts.

You may be tempted to think "those are the thoughts of a crazy person", and I would agree. But what psychosis causes such hatred and inhumane incoherence? Is it only "Bush Hatred" or is it a more profound "Republican Hatred"? You may also be tempted to think "only a small minority of nuts think like that". Oh really? Read this from Chrenkoff. These are the sincere thoughts of mainstream democrats in America and other civilized western nations. Bush and the Christian conservative right are to blame for both hurricane Katrina and the tragedy of her aftermath? Insanity is too naive a term to describe this way of thinking.

Every day the insane ranting of the left gets worse. I am beginning to believe that the left (and the democrat party is the party of the left.......with mainstream democrats echoing the insanity the left displays) truly believes the right is evil and deserves to die (or otherwise be neutralized). This is a very disturbing thought since the majority of the nation is on the right. How can a nation survive such deep division, and should we even desire to survive it? I am not sure I want to live in a nation where such crazy thinking is allowed to grow, even thrive. My father, a democrat I assume, tells my son, his grandson, that Bush is "not his president" and the patriotic feelings of Bush supporters are not "his patriotism". Can you imagine republicans in the 1930s and 1940s telling their grandchildren that FDR is "not my president" and "his war is not my war"?

Those types of rantings are dangerous. Racist white supremacists have been jailed and had their belongings confiscated for less hateful comments than what the left is saying today. Isn't it only a matter of time before someone takes these thoughts to their logical conclusion and begins killing those "evil" people on the right? How many times can President Bush be called evil before someone thinks it's ok to do him harm?

Are there two Americas? Perhaps not, but there will be soon if the left has it's way.
