Chuck Norris Says So, That's Why

Who knew the guy could write as well as kill thousands of communists with his feet?

My kind of Hollywood actor.

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

Xavier posts this piece about Obama;s gun control record. Well researched, and it pretty much says it all.

One thing in there really troubled me. If you'll notice, Obama said something to the effect of (and I'm paraphrasing here), "I don't care if it is a fundamental right, the federal government still has the authority to take it away from you."

That ought to bother all of us, gun owners or not. He apparently doesn't understand "fundamental right." That's something that no lawful government is supposed to be able to touch.

There is no clearer indication of what this candidate is about, and what the Democrats want for all of us.

By the way, I noticed that I have posted 301 times on this blog. Geez.

"And Then One Day You'll Find, Ten Years Have Got Behind You..."

Being around that age myself, this entry really struck home with me.

I think that I have gotten a bit better with age. I darn sure know the mistakes not to make again. I'm wiser, much sadder, but hopeful about the future.

Can this lady write some inspiring prose, or what?

Eating veggies shrinks the brain.

Explains a lot amongst the tree-hugging, unwashed, bunny-cuddling liberal vegetarian wackos, doesn't it?

I'm off for a hamburger. Double-meat, now that I think about it....

Life and Hope, Part Deux

Is it just me, or was McCain’s story pretty much inspiring?

Don’t get me wrong: I was just about the most anti-McCain guy you could have ever found. I hate his border stance, I hate McCain-Feingold with a passion, I hate his capitulation to the Dems, etc. I wish Sarah was running as the headliner instead of the warm-up act. But I’ll pull the lever for McCain now, just to put her closer to the White House. But there’s a lot to like about McCain on his own. I don’t want to like him, really I don’t.

But darn it, his life’s story is awe-inspiring. And darn it, you have to respect the guy for doing what he thinks is best, even if it draws the ire and wrath of not only his political enemies, but those who are his political friends. That’s courage. They guy has that in spades, one has to admit. It goes without saying that Obama looks like the poser he is when you stack him up to McCain. As I’ve noted: when Obama had to defend his experience against the second banana, I knew he was screwed.

Think about a person locked inside a North Vietnamese prison for five years. Think about a guy who rejected early release, even though he could have cashed in on his father’s admiralty. Broken arms. Dysentery. Beatings. Pretty much the worst a person could endure, it seems. Tell me Job’s got anything on McCain.

This went on for five years. That absolutely floors me. Tell me Job’s got anything on McCain.

How many times during that five years did he hit the bottom of the pit of despair? How many times did he wonder whether or not God had abandoned him?

He pulled through, by not giving up, by not losing faith. By not giving in.

Look where he is today. Wealthy. Beautiful wife, great kids. A respected, if not beloved national leader. And probably our next President, God willing.

It looks to me like God rewarded him for keeping the faith.

I’d have to say that my life is not exactly ideal, at the moment. But good grief. In comparison, I’ve got not a single problem in the world. I’m not in the Hanoi Hilton. McCain’s story is pretty much a b@$ch slap on the face of my petty problems.

I suppose the lesson here is to keep the faith. No matter how bad the situation seems, where there is life, there is hope. If he can endure being a POW, what can life throw at me that I can’t handle? If he can trust in God enough to get him through all of that, why can’t I?

I’d say that I owe the guy a shot at the top job. God got him this far for a reason.

Life and Hope, Part I

Read this, if you have a chance.


Where there's a life, there is hope. There's a chance for a bright future, for a great person to come into the world and share their potential.

We can deal with those lives that don't live up to their potential.

We cannot afford to deal with the destruction of a life before its potential has ever been realized.

Red Card His Green Card and Send Him Home

If I see another picture of David Beckham scowling, and hocking some product that he obviously doesn't use or know anything about (Sharpie Markers??? Give me a break. I'm SURE he uses those all the time), I'm going to go postal and start shooting soccer balls. Maybe some that are still attached to soccer players.

Just kidding, but good grief.

Why the scowl? He's making beaucoup off of a sport that most Americans think comes in a distant tenth behind curling in popularity, he's banging the only hot Spice Girl there was, and he's an international jet-setter. I'd think if anybody out there ought to smile, it would be him.

Go, Sarah!

See the speech?? Wonderful. I think McCain really helped himself with this lady. He's convinced me to pull the lever for him.

Can she handle the presidency? I'd have to say yes, based on her record, and what we saw last night.

Have you noticed that the Demoncrats are attacking her experience? That's a pretty stupid move. She's a VP candidate, and she's got more executive experience than the Demoncrat PRESIDENTIAL candidate. I love it. When the head guy can't successfully defend his record against the second fiddle, they're screwed.

I have hope now. Thank you, Governor Palin.
