Acting Thankful

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. -W.J. Cameron

Matt, Nicole and I shared our Thanksgiving Day with two young Marines stationed here in San Diego. It was a happy day of food, fun, and conversation around the patio fire pit in the evening.

Our military service men and women can never be repaid, only honored and appreciated. Thank you, David and Angie, for the privilege of sharing this holiday with you. Thank you especially for your service to our country. May the Good Lord keep you safe.

Reverse the Vote

I contributed to this fund, Reverse the Vote, last Thursday. At that time, the total funds raised stood at a little over $73,000.

Today, five days later, over $121,000 has been raised. It seems large numbers of Americans are trying to send a message to Congress. Too bad they're not listening. Next November, many of our dismissive elected officials will join the growing ranks of our financially troubled nation's unemployed.

The only difference between them and the growing percentages of out-of-work Americans will be that they had a choice to keep their jobs, but refused.

Schooled in Terror

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world...
~ W.B. Yeats

If you’d like clear answers for a change on the reality of the radical Islamist’s war against America, I think Andrew C. McCarthy’s Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad is going to be required reading.

McCarthy was the prosecutor of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers, so he has been immersed in the hard facts of the jihad for a long time. I’ve heard McCarthy interviewed numerous times on the radio, discussing his book and national security issues. The man is razor-sharp, bluntly articulate, and extremely well-informed about the dangers we face.

The hardcover and Kindle editions of Willful Blindness were published in April 2008. The paperback is scheduled to be released on December 8, 2009. Considering the seemingly endless crop of reckless idiots we have currently running our government, Willful Blindness is going straight to the top of my Christmas list.

Meanwhile, McCarthy's most recent article at NRO is linked here. Click here for more information on this champion against the jihadists that are determined to destroy us.

Docs 4 Patient Care

If you think all doctors believe healthcare reform as currently presented is a good idea, you should drop by the Docs 4 Patient Care website, linked here.

Below are the "20 Big Lies" listed on the homepage. The thought of this monstrosity passing the Senate is enough to make any healthy American sick.


  1. You can keep your insurance if you like it.

  2. You can keep your doctor if you wish.

  3. US healthcare ranks near the bottom of the industrialized world.

  4. Major cause of bankruptcies is related to medical expenses.

  5. 14,000 people per day are dying due to lack of medical insurance.

  6. Most doctors support Obamacare as endorsed by organized medicine (AMA).

  7. Senior citizens will not lose any Medicare benefits.

  8. Insurance premiums will be reduced for most Americans.

  9. This plan will only result in tax increases for the super wealthy.

  10. Proposed HC bills are budget "neutral" and will not add to the federal deficit.

  11. There are only 2 choices: the current system or Obamacare.

  12. The Republicans say NO because they lack and alternative plan.

  13. The public "strongly" supports Obamacare and public option.

  14. There will not be any rationing in healthcare.

  15. The government will not interfere between you and your doctor.

  16. Most doctors oppose HCR legislation so they can preserve their income.

  17. This is a "crisis" situation and needs to be passed into law immediately.

  18. A public option will increase competition and not result in a single payer system.

  19. Members of Congress will be subject to the same healthcare as the general public.

  20. Contents of the bill will be available to read at least 72 hours prior to a vote.

Weighty Words

“It may be hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy.”
~ President Obama at Fort Hood

I disagree, Mr. President. I think it is very easy to understand what happened.

A radical Islamist terrorist, operating within the U.S. Army, carried out a jihad attack against our military. All of the numerous warning signs were ignored due to the government’s increasingly fatal attraction to “political correctness.” Because nobody in the chain of command had the courage to call out the threat, 14 Americans died.

The unborn baby counts as a murdered American, Mr. President. Although with your track record on abortion, I’m sure you would disagree.

Dozens more of our soldiers were wounded, some critically so. The painful psychological toll on those present at the scene and family members of the victims is incalculable and will be lifelong. Yet MSM tells us we are supposed to be concerned that the murderer may have had post traumatic stress syndrome? Please. There's some “twisted logic” for you.

One more thing you should be aware of, Mr. President. You seem very fond of the word “tragedy” to describe
the massacre at Fort Hood. It is not a tragedy. A tragedy is a car full of teenagers crashing, or a young parent dying and leaving small children behind. A tragedy is a wildfire, a tsunami, an earthquake that destroys homes and lives.

A calculated act of cold-blooded, brutal, hateful murder is not a “tragedy.” The jihad at Fort Hood last week was an atrocity. It was the first successful Islamist terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001. It was an act of war against the heartbeat of our nation—the men and women of our Armed Services.

Tragedy differs starkly from atrocity. There is nothing “incomprehensible” about what happened.
The majority of Americans clearly understand that. When our government, up to and including the Commander-in-Chief, will not acknowledge the terrible reality of Islamic jihadists burrowed into our midst, we are well on the way to more atrocities like Fort Hood.

Evil speaks for itself, Mr. President, and is easily understood--especially by those who are harmed by it. Your willful refusal to speak the truth regarding the Fort Hood terrorist attack is the tragedy that is hard to comprehend.
