With the Patriots at 7 and 0 playing at 4:15 red Sox at 8:pm it's sports Sunday in new England! So I leave you thoughts of President Ford!

With the New England Patriot going for 8 and 0 at 4:15 and the Red Sox going for a sweep in Denver at 8:pm I have gone through the nightmare of news today around the world and as I see nothing but the daily dose of underhanded, deceitful, political lies, time is running short and I can't see anything new to discuss.
Rather than continue to beat to death the same important world shattering events that we can not get anyone to listen too I am going to leave you with my thoughts on President Ford. I watched Tim Russert this morning and the interveiw was veryinteresting when it turned to Gerald Ford, what he thought about Nixon, Clinton, and Reagan and some very interesting insight about the man.

I have written extensively on him in the past and there is much to be learned from Ford expecially in regard to seperation of Church and State but I will never forgive him for pardoning Nixon. Anyway there are lessons to learn!

Lessons of Bush and the past unheeded as increasing numbers want Separation of Church and state Erased!
Lessons of Bush and the past unheeded as increasing numbers want Separation of Church and state Erased saying it never existed nor was it intended too. I would like your thoughts on this.

It is very convoluted!It is unbelievable to me too hear that the nightmare Bush has created with his purposeful infusion of his perverted Religion into our Government is not noticed by and even wanted an ever increasing number of Americans and they do not see the tremendous damage Bush and past Presidents that did this have done to the Constitution and to America. Increasing numbers are calling for the removal of Separation of Church and State and hoping to see a return to good sense I am amazed to see this happening as I expected and want just the opposite.
We cannot let this happen. It will complete the downfall of "our America" and seal the nightmare Bush is creating in his new America. Remember this and then the following cries for the removal of Separation of church and State will be put in context and be more disturbing. We cannot let this happen.We all know of Bush's abuse and misuse of Religion in his misadministration.

The president's infusion of Christian fundamentalism is destroying America as we know it. Unbridled religiosity is the most dangerous weapon in the world, whether it's Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. It does not matter.The president likes to talk about the Islamists hijacking their religion and Islam. He has done the same thing to Christianity and America! They are playing the same game!
My only concern is for truth, honesty, justice, and the American way and we do not get any of it from this administration. It has struck me why as I read a story about Richard Nixon's abuse of Religion for his political gain as Bush is fond of doing. I can't believe people can want more of either of those terrible examples.With Bush we have unbridled, perverted, abused, misused, Religiosity being pushed by Bush and his warped sense of Christian fundamentalism and corrupt democracy just for his own political gain.

The worse part is that Bush has hijacked Christianity and America and is in control of the (for now), most powerful country on the planet.I thought this was very unique to George W. and very distasteful indeed! In light of the fact that Ford set a powerful example with his own Presidency insisting on keeping his Religion to himself and believing in separation of Church and State I did not understand Bush's perversion of Christianity only for political gain. We can never know the real story about a President's faith. We only know what he does—or refuses to do—in God's name.
Voters were unwilling to forgive Gerald Ford for his great act of forgiveness the unconditional pardon of Richard Nixon and I was one of them, thinking it was purely political. But there was another side to the pardon, the presidency and the 1976 campaign that received much less attention, in part because Ford wanted it that way. The contest between Ford and Jimmy Carter was a battle between two born-again Christians—but only one was willing to run as one. I never really realized that about Ford and that is as it should be. A truly strong man keeps his Religious beliefs to himself.
One of his first acts as President was some spiritual housecleaning. Among the more ingeniously cynical inventions of the Nixon Administration was the much publicized White House Church Service, which in addition to providing genuine fellowship for those so inclined, was a prime tool for image building, fund raising, arm twisting and deal making for the President's men.It appalls me that Bush had such a fine example of how to conduct himself and separation of church and State in President Ford and he opted instead to follow the example of Nixon's failed misadministration did only for their political gain.

Knowing that Cheney was in that mess too and that many of us believe Cheney is behind this misadministration I find it telling that once again Religion has been perverted and misused for political gain. Is Cheney the common nut behind the wheel?Anyway I find it very disturbing that knowing the problems of blurring or erasing the line of separation between Church and State, there is a growing number calling for Christianity not influencing as is fine but running America and want it removed altogether saying it is wrong and never existed.
On Anderson Cooper last night they said that In the beginning, there was a wall, a mighty barrier built by the founding fathers to separate church and state, block one from meddling in the affairs of the other. In school, we are taught that's what makes our country special. But what if that wall never existed? What if it's a myth conjured up in our lifetime to mask a greater truth, that America was conceived as a Christian nation?It was!

When I was researching for a book I ran into the statement Ronald Reagan used once in referencing America as the shining City on a hill. I found it when researching the morality influencing America at the time of our founding. It was a reference to our Christian roots and that America was designed so when God had his return he would feel right at home in the United States.I understand we swear on a Bible in court, etc., and that In God we trust is not only on our money as I feel it should be but that thought heavily influences us but that should not mean that our country should be run by Christian beliefs or that it ever was.
If I remember correctly it was the Calvinist's and born again Christians that did indeed influence our founding but I never thought Christian beliefs blatantly and overtly ran our country. Any Religion's positive influence is fine but not its open advocating to solely govern America. We must keep Religion separate for what seems to me to be very obvious reasons not just her but look at Iraq and middle east countries.

The arguments I kept reading over and over got more confusing every time I looked at them. There are some powerful arguments on both sides of this issue. Myself I believe Thomas Jefferson's interpretation of Separation of Church and State. I do though recommend you too give a quick look at the growing effort to say it never existed and to return "God" to running America. I would like to hear what you think once you read the strong argument made on Anderson Cooper

Bush's Perverted Religious misadministration modeled after Nixon's! Cheney's influence?

We all know of Bush's abuse and misuse of Religion in his misadministration. President Carter was right about Bush's purposeful merging of church and state, but doesn't know why it is being allowed. The president's infusion of Christian fundamentalism is destroying America as we know it. Unbridled religiosity is the most dangerous weapon in the world, whether it's Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. It does not matter.
The president likes to talk about the Islamists hijacking their religion and Islam. He has done the same thing to Christianity and America! They are playing the same game! Like we are told of President Ford My only concern is for truth, honesty, justice, and the American way - and we do not get any of it from this administration. It has struck me why as I read a story about Richard Nixon's abuse of Religion for his political gain as Bush is fond of doing.

With Bush we have unbridled, perverted, abused, misused, Religiosity being pushed by Bush and his warped sense of Christian fundamentalism and corrupt democracy just for his own political gain. The worse part is that Bush has hijacked Christianity and America and is in control of the (for now), most powerful country on the planet. I thought this was very unique to George W. and very distasteful indeed!
In light of the fact that Ford set a powerful example with his own Presidency insisting on keeping his Religion to himself and believing in separation of Church and State I did not understand Bush's perversion of Christianity only for political gain. We can never know the real story about a President's faith. We only know what he does—or refuses to do—in God's name.

But there was another side to the pardon, the presidency and the 1976 campaign that received much less attention, in part because Ford wanted it that way. The contest between Ford and Jimmy Carter was a battle between two born-again Christians—but only one was willing to run as one.
I never really realized that about Ford and that is as it should be. A trully strong man keeps his Religious beliefs to himself. Ford's faith was ignited in Grand Rapids, Mich., a center of Dutch Calvinist congregations so strict that even in the late 1950's there were arguments over whether it was appropriate to read the newspaper on the Sabbath. Ford's upbringing was more relaxed. Some Sunday afternoons, he recalled, "I'd just go out and play baseball. Of course, some of my Dutch friends weren't allowed to do that."
As a young Michigan Congressman, he met a gospel-film executive named Billy Zeoli who came by Ford's office and gave him a Bible. Over the next few years the two men became close—so close that Ford came to call Zeoli "an alter ego, a second self." One of his first acts as President was some spiritual housecleaning. Among the more ingeniously cynical inventions of the Nixon Administration was the much publicized White House Church Service, which in addition to providing genuine fellowship for those so inclined, was a prime tool for image building, fund raising, arm twisting and deal making for the President's men.

It appalls me that Bush had such a fine example of how to conduct himself and separation of church and State in President Ford and he opted instead to follow the example of Nixon's failed misadministration did only for their political gain.

Last thought on President Ford: Gerald Ford's real Eulogy is far more Sobering to you and I as it should be!
President Bush will be eulogizing President Ford today. As should be the case in a very public eulogy you will hear many wonderful things about him. However, I have been communicating with an 83 year old friend of mine in California and found that we were both in agreement that there are some things that will not be mentioned and should be but not at this time. I hear all in the media saying history will look kindly on him and his pardoning of tricky Dicky.
He was a darn good man and faithful servant to our beloved America. With that in mind I have to remember that had he spoken up before his death that he could have saved thousands of lives, Billions of dollars, and much American and world angst. I still do not understand being such a important figure as President Ford is and putting ones party ahead of what is honest and right for America especially if you love it so much as I believe Ford did. First let me remind you that Ford became Vice President because a fellow legally elected VP, Spiro Agnew fell in disgrace after having received inappropriate financial benefits from his political position as VP. what a sign of things to come.
Why didn't we learn? How did we forget? Oddly enough Agnew was a contemptuous figure who mocked Patriotic Americans for voicing their dissension for an unpopular illegal war just as Cheney, Fords chief of staff has done today. Cheney who I will remind you that Ford described after his death as pugnacious as we all know he is! Ford then became President after Nixon, another Republican, fell in disgrace.

I have to say again, we didn't learn anything. The examples that were set then have been surpassed as far as I am concerned, by Cheney, Rummy, and George W. who is set to soon tell the world how great President Ford was. He was but some truths must be brought up by us as we put President Ford's legacy during Bush's illegal war into perspective. I must first say that History may look kindly on President Ford's pardon of Nixon but I didn't and never will. I thought it was wrong and nothing but politics. He is credited by fellow Republicans for healing our Nation. I don't think so! it really bothered me.
They say it was right not to make the Nation go through a painful trial for his crimes but they were more than willing to put the Nation through it over Clinton's sexual indiscretions! I am appalled that such a good man as President Ford was is being used today by Cheney, Rummy, and Bush to cloak themselves in his decency while in actuality as most of us know now, he was in opposition to them and their illegal war.

I for one will always hold it against President Ford for not putting America and her citizens ahead of politics. If he and others had spoken up I believe this illegal war would not have happened and the lives of thousands of Americans and others would have been spared as well as hundreds of Billions of dollars would have been saved. As President Ford is laid to rest the Nation can reflect on a decent man and great American but amongst ourselves and around the Nation we owe a duty to America and ourselves to think about what could have been!

Time for the Pats, have a nice day!

It's coming Jim:

In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.

Public Law 109-364, or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."

President Bush seized this unprecedented power on the very same day that he signed the equally odious Military Commissions Act of 2006. In a sense, the two laws complement one another. One allows for torture and detention abroad, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of America. Remember, the term for putting an area under military law enforcement control is precise; the term is "martial law."

Section 1076 of the massive Authorization Act, which grants the Pentagon another $500-plus-billion for its ill-advised adventures, is entitled, "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies." Section 333, "Major public emergencies; interference with State and Federal law" states that "the President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of ("refuse" or "fail" in) maintaining public order, "in order to suppress, in any State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy."

For the current President, "enforcement of the laws to restore public order" means to commandeer guardsmen from any state, over the objections of local governmental, military and local police entities; ship them off to another state; conscript them in a law enforcement mode; and set them loose against "disorderly" citizenry - protesters, possibly, or those who object to forced vaccinations and quarantines in the event of a bio-terror event.

The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups and detention of protesters, so called "illegal aliens," "potential terrorists" and other "undesirables" for detention in facilities already contracted for and under construction by Halliburton. That's right. Under the cover of a trumped-up "immigration emergency" and the frenzied militarization of the southern border, detention camps are being constructed right under our noses, camps designed for anyone who resists the foreign and domestic agenda of the Bush administration.

An article on "recent contract awards" in a recent issue of the slick, insider "Journal of Counterterrorism & Homeland Security International" reported that "global engineering and technical services powerhouse KBR [Kellog, Brown & Root] announced in January 2006 that its Government and Infrastructure division was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in the event of an emergency." "With a maximum total value of $385 million over a five year term," the report notes, "the contract is to be executed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers," "for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) - in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs." The report points out that "KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton." (3) So, in addition to authorizing another $532.8 billion for the Pentagon, including a $70-billion "supplemental provision" which covers the cost of the ongoing, mad military maneuvers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places, the new law, signed by the president in a private White House ceremony, further collapses the historic divide between the police and the military: a tell-tale sign of a rapidly consolidating police state in America, all accomplished amidst ongoing U.S. imperial pretensions of global domination, sold to an "emergency managed" and seemingly willfully gullible public as a "global war on terrorism."

Make no mistake about it: the de-facto repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) is an ominous assault on American democratic tradition and jurisprudence. The 1878 Act, which reads, "Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both," is the only U.S. criminal statute that outlaws military operations directed against the American people under the cover of 'law enforcement.' As such, it has been the best protection we've had against the power-hungry intentions of an unscrupulous and reckless executive, an executive intent on using force to enforce its will.

Unfortunately, this past week, the president dealt posse comitatus, along with American democracy, a near fatal blow. Consequently, it will take an aroused citizenry to undo the damage wrought by this horrendous act, part and parcel, as we have seen, of a long train of abuses and outrages perpetrated by this authoritarian administration.

Despite the unprecedented and shocking nature of this act, there has been no outcry in the American media, and little reaction from our elected officials in Congress. On September 19th, a lone Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) noted that 2007's Defense Authorization Act contained a "widely opposed provision to allow the President more control over the National Guard [adopting] changes to the Insurrection Act, which will make it easier for this or any future President to use the military to restore domestic order WITHOUT the consent of the nation's governors."

Senator Leahy went on to stress that, "we certainly do not need to make it easier for Presidents to declare martial law. Invoking the Insurrection Act and using the military for law enforcement activities goes against some of the central tenets of our democracy. One can easily envision governors and mayors in charge of an emergency having to constantly look over their shoulders while someone who has never visited their communities gives the orders."

A few weeks later, on the 29th of September, Leahy entered into the Congressional Record that he had "grave reservations about certain provisions of the fiscal Year 2007 Defense Authorization Bill Conference Report," the language of which, he said, "subverts solid, longstanding posse comitatus statutes that limit the military's involvement in law enforcement, thereby making it easier for the President to declare martial law." This had been "slipped in," Leahy said, "as a rider with little study," while "other congressional committees with jurisdiction over these matters had no chance to comment, let alone hold hearings on, these proposals."

In a telling bit of understatement, the Senator from Vermont noted that "the implications of changing the (Posse Comitatus) Act are enormous". "There is good reason," he said, "for the constructive friction in existing law when it comes to martial law declarations. Using the military for law enforcement goes against one of the founding tenets of our democracy. We fail our Constitution, neglecting the rights of the States, when we make it easier for the President to declare martial law and trample on local and state sovereignty."

Senator Leahy's final ruminations: "Since hearing word a couple of weeks ago that this outcome was likely, I have wondered how Congress could have gotten to this point. It seems the changes to the Insurrection Act have survived the Conference because the Pentagon and the White House want it."

The historic and ominous re-writing of the Insurrection Act, accomplished in the dead of night, which gives Bush the legal authority to declare martial law, is now an accomplished fact.

The Pentagon, as one might expect, plays an even more direct role in martial law operations. Title XIV of the new law, entitled, "Homeland Defense Technology Transfer Legislative Provisions," authorizes "the Secretary of Defense to create a Homeland Defense Technology Transfer Consortium to improve the effectiveness of the Department of Defense (DOD) processes for identifying and deploying relevant DOD technology to federal, State, and local first responders."

In other words, the law facilitates the "transfer" of the newest in so-called "crowd control" technology and other weaponry designed to suppress dissent from the Pentagon to local militarized police units. The new law builds on and further codifies earlier "technology transfer" agreements, specifically the 1995 DOD-Justice Department memorandum of agreement achieved back during the Clinton-Reno regime.(4)

It has become clear in recent months that a critical mass of the American people have seen through the lies of the Bush administration; with the president's polls at an historic low, growing resistance to the war Iraq, and the Democrats likely to take back the Congress in mid-term elections, the Bush administration is on the ropes. And so it is particularly worrying that President Bush has seen fit, at this juncture to, in effect, declare himself dictator.

After the U.S.S.R. dissolved, Americans believed their country was the sole, remaining superpower, but the strength of any nation is its economy. Without a robust and thriving economy, the U.S. never could have built the vast military machine that projects American power to all corners of the globe. But the U.S. has weakened. Since 2006, Bush admits he’s increased the deficit by three trillion dollars since taking office, but creative book keeping conceals the real number. Add the as yet unfunded future payments to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Veterans Benefits, plus individual, corporate and the fifty state’s collective debt, and the deficit skyrockets to 44 trillion dollars. This figure was determined by economists and budget analysts at the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Congressional Budget Office. The Bush Administration’s tax cuts, the corporate scandals that occur with rapid fire frequency, the huge expenditures on prosecuting the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and now the threats against Iran send the message to foreign lenders that the U.S. has no intention of reining in its spending. "The budget should be balanced; the treasury should be refilled; public debt should be reduced; and the arrogance of public officials should be controlled." Cicero. 106-43 B.C.

The occupation of Iraq was going to greatly reduce U.S. dependence on oil imports. The plan was that after seizing Iraq’s oil fields, U.S. oil producers would move in and get the wells pumping again, and before you could say, “Iraqi Oil” the U.S. would be shipping high grade crude to American refineries. Rebuilding Iraq? Don’t worry about it. As soon as the dust settles, the money will flow. But like everything else about the occupation, it didn’t work out that way. The Iraqi oil ministry is carefully weighing the options of how best to help the war ravaged land and its people. Russia is rebuilding Iraq’s power plants and are waiting to help Iraq develop its unexplored oil fields. Iraq has claimed their vast oil wealth a natural resource that belongs to the Iraqi people. The U.S. watched from the sidelines as Iraq discussed honoring pre-war contracts with Russia, China, France, and India. No major drilling concessions have been awarded yet, but it’s expected that a multinational conglomerate of oil producers will eventually share in developing Iraq’s unexplored oil reserves.


The Bush Administration’s hawkish elements had once dreamed of ccupying the entire Middle East. If the U.S. controlled a significant percentage of the world’s oil wealth they reasoned, it could maintain its faltering superpower status. The plan had been to occupy Iraq, take Iran’s oil fields, go after Syria - then Egypt. But the neocons have been forced to see the impossibility of their pipe dreams, and now Russia and China have warned the U.S against an Iranian attack. On October 25th, during a press conference, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, “To run around like a madman waving a knife is not the best way forward,” He added, “Why drive the situation into a dead end?'' This, from a man whose soul Bush looked into, and found good.

Russia is not a friend to the U.S, and contrary to popular belief, it isn’t a weak, bygone power either. Russia is still very much a communist state, and as such, remains an enemy of free market capitalism. The Financial Times reported in August of 2006, that Russia’s proven oil reserves had surpassed Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest. This puts Russia in a position to dominate the world’s oil markets, and with Bush weakening U.S. influence around the globe, Russian oil exports to European Nations may soon be paid for in rubles, replacing the dollar as the world’s fiat currency. This plays directly into Russia’s plans to isolate the U.S. from its traditional allies, and Bush seems to be doing everything he can to assure the Russian plan succeeds. The world’s contempt for U.S. foreign policy, if a permanent war footing can be called that, has been greatly exacerbated by Bush’s abandonment of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Biological Weapons Convention, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and the Global Arms Trade Treaty.

Russia, in response, has rearmed its ballistic missiles with MIRV’s, Multiple Independently guided Re-entry Vehicles. It has also resumed long range bomber flights, that are presumably nuclear capable. In November, 2005 The Washington Times reported that Russia had developed a new ballistic missile that was capable of changing course in mid-flight, negating any technology the U.S. possesses to intercept incoming missiles. In January of 2006, during a news conference, Russia’s president said, “These missile systems don’t represent a response to a missile defense system, but they are immune to that. They are hypersonic and capable of changing their flight path.” Alexei Bayer, a frequent contributor to Geopolitical, Global Analysis writes, “The Pentagon Budget may be larger than the sum total of what the rest of the world spends on defense, but Russia can still incinerate all of the U.S. in about 15 minutes—hardly a condition for world domination by Washington.”

The Bush Administrations strategy, if one is charitable enough to call it that, is to hand the democrats the enormous debt Bush and his neocons have incurred. They’ll also hand the democrats the unenviable task of finding an exit strategy out of Iraq. This assumes the democrats will win the White House in 2008, and Bush doesn’t attack Iran. If he does, the entire Middle East will erupt in anti-American hatred, with Muslims the world over vowing revenge against U.S. interests, including American citizens abroad. Russia will not sit idly by while the U.S. establishes military bases on the Russian border.

Reagan began the U.S. decline with his deregulation of American corporations. The American public bought into the scheme with promises of lower costs for everything through healthy competition. The opposite has proven true. As Paul Krugman recently wrote in the New York Times, “Unfortunately, assertions that unregulated financial markets would take care of themselves have proved as wrong as claims that deregulation would reduce electricity prices.” Corporate failures, from the S&L’s to California’s utilities, have destroyed overseas confidence in U.S. markets, and have cost taxpayers trillions of dollars that should have been spent on infrastructure, educating a globally competitive workforce, and a serious investment in alternative energy, freeing the U.S. from oil blackmail. Bush and his neocons thought that occupying Iraq and taking control of its oil would make them all fantastically wealthy. Instead, their misguided and disastrous invasion has seriously threatened the U.S. economy, and has cast a long shadow on America’s once, good name.

Damn Larry!
You know I am more than a little bit concerned and it is only a matter of time.
It is not the powers available it is the idiot at the helm. You know HE IS GOING TO ABUSE AND MISUSE EVERY POWER HE GETS HIS HANDS ON.
I HAVE BEEN HAVING DISCUSSIONS WITH MY SONS IN THE MILITARY IN ANTICIPATION OF THIS IN ORDER TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEIR REACTIION WOULD BE.
I wanted to find out whether or not they would turn against us. I am sorry to say the response is the one I largely get from the general public. They think I am crazy and say tht will never happen in America.
It will and soon! The idiot will not let these powers in someone elses hands.
Anyway the Declaration will activate me. I have limited resources but I will go on my own and spend all I have to fight this. I will shut up because I just do not trust anyone including this medium but please stay with me on this!
One last thing, I had this discussion yesterday and the day before on kos. I can't think of the guys name off hand but it is about comment 30 on my last story.
we are in so much trouble but we will not relent. Anyway like I just said, he too unbelievably think cooler heads will prevail. It just blows me away that peopl do not have a clue as to what is coming!

Larry
You nailed it and I do not have to add anything beyond don't forget to add the cost to fight a world war.
I think I wrote it 2 or 3 days ago but you will see it. Read the race top world war Acts 1-6 and see the horrible results. It will be fact and more, much of it already is but people can not put 2 and 2 together and look at the big picture.
Thinking back, Lydia read that and did have a comment!
This untire mess will erupt when Bush attacks Iran. I have to think it will not go nuclear because that oil would be lost to everyone.
That is why monstrous bombs like our MOAB, Russia's FOAB, and our new 30,000 pound Bunker Buster are being built rapidly. what a damn mess and it will not be avoided.
One of the results of all this is the obvious bankruptcy and decline of the western powers. I know Bush is an idiot but he has to be banking on defeating China and cancelling our debt as I have said many times.

That's funny, you scared me for a minute there. I have lived here all my life so I am a hard core fun but nothing gets in the way of my friendships. We will not be enemies! Funny, I am thinking of a storyline for today. It is time our sports figures make believe we are in trouble and step up.
Oh yeah, you might like this but I expect the Colts will beat us again and remain undefeated. Peyton is not only a Manning he is the man. We are favored by 1.5 points but I don't think so.

Jim:

I was at the dentist today and the assistant said there was a guy in there last week who said Martial Law was coming soon.

This girl surprised me by saying people think that is crazy, but she believes it.

At least there are a few who aren't blind, very few.

an average patriot said...

Larry
I have to laugh! You don't live around here do you? I said the same thing to the assistant last week. you know as well as I do that it is crazy but it will be a fact and it has to be soon along with the attack on Iran that will trigger world war.
I had an interesting conversation with my son who flies. I asked him how he will react when martial law is declared and I become the enemy and it really befuddled him. It will happen but it will fracture us like never before and that is good as far as Bush is concerned.
