Just My Opinion !!!

Moveon.org! What a great idea! They should move on. And on, and on.....

Sure, they have every right to do what they do, and say what they say, but if anyone out there thinks for a minute they are providing an honest, constructive venue for ideas, they are sadly mistaken. They are extremely far-left wing, heavily financed by George Soros (so money is not an issue with them), and they will literally cut out your political heart if given the provocation to do so.

In case you didn't notice, none of the Democratic nominees for the presidency had the courage to denounce their full page ad in the New York Times. As ignorant as some of them sometimes sound, they are smart enough to know they will be vilified by the left-wing bloggers if they should take a stand against them. They are, in short, running scared. Just my opinion.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

My hat goes off to Tim Russert. He is an admitted Democrat, but when he goes to work he checks his politics at the door. He will ask the same tough questions to everyone, regardless of their politics. No holds barred.

He is certainly a breath of fresh air in an industry which has its stinky side. There should be more people in the business with his dignity and character. Just my opinion.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If one listens closely to those on the far-right and to those on the far-left, it is fairly easy to conclude that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. The middle is not nearly so agenda-driven.

Although I have been correctly accused of leaning to the right, I find myself as uncomfortable with the far-right as I do the far-left. I can be conservative in my political views without being radical. It's just that the far-left seems to me to have a much more vicious agenda. Just my opinion.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Is it just me, or does it seem to you there is just no logic in our government anymore, on either side. With most of the Democrats and some of the Republicans calling for the imminent withdrawal of our troops from Iraq (and believe me, I would love nothing more than to see them come home), would it not make sense, in the natural order of things, to talk about bringing our troops home from Korea and Germany too? They have been there much, much longer, and we still have an active enemy to deal with in Iraq.

Are we going to bring them (the terrorists) here, too? Seriously, what happens if we indeed do bring our troops home and the terrorists decide to set up shop on our soil? I find this possibility very unsettling and not without merit. Just my opinion.

Funny E-mails !!!

As I have been traveling recently, I have not had the time to share my own thoughts on these pages (can you say 'blessing'?), so here are some randomly selected e-mails I have recently received that I find rather humorous. I am sure there are those of you out there who will not. Ain't this fun! And, no, I didn't verify any of this with Snopes. Let them come to me for a change.

Historical Events:
Many will recall that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claimed that an unidentified object with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico.

This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and the federal government.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of March 1948, exactly nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:
Albert Arnold Gore Jr.
Hillary Rodham
John F. Kerry
William Jefferson Clinton
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer.

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep?

And then.....

Three things to think about!
1. COWS
2. THE CONSTITUTION
3. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

COWS: Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington and they can track her calves to their stalls? But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.

THE CONSTITUTION: They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and we're not using it anymore.

TEN COMMANDMENTS: The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse........ You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt N ot Commit Adultery" and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians -- it creates a hostile work environment.

And last, but certainly not least.....

A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state.

The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

The Marine reported, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scumbag who got what he deserved, and he yelled back that Ted Kennedy is a fat, good-for-nothing, left wing liberal drunk who doesn't know how to drive. So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian! He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Hillary Clinton!"

"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us."
