No words or introduction is certainly NOT needed…..this video clip says more than a mouthful …….I cannot wait to see this epic movie about MY history.
Keep the Republican belief in personal responsibility; the respect for wealth creation and the power of markets; the healthy skepticism of what government can and cannot accomplish; and the recognition that taxes and regulation come with an economic toll.
Toss aside the oversimplified view that government is always bad and that lower taxes are always good; the sad and reckless denial of climate change; and the outmoded views on social policy, particularly gay marriage, that are antithetical to the whole notion of keeping government out of our private lives.
Keep the Democrats’ concern for working people; the commitment to a strong social safety net and social tolerance; and the recognition that government must play a crucial role in protecting us from the most egregious abuses of capitalism, including environmental damage.
But ditch the policies that are necessary solely to win a Democratic primary, not fix the country: an overly cozy relationship with the largest unions, particularly the teachers unions; an unwillingness to address the looming costs of our entitlement programs; an unseemly populism that too often treats the forces of wealth creation as a problem rather than a solution.
The Centrists will be fiscally sensible, socially progressive, and committed to the kinds of compromises that will appeal to the tens of millions of voters, particularly younger voters, who are currently without a political home.
I am NOT saying that The United States is not taking the threats from North Korea very seriously because to ignore a nut is not a good plan. We must consider the possibility. We ignored the attacks prior to 9-11, “feeble attempts to cause fear” and “not really worth getting excited over” and “they really do not have the technology to do us harm.” And yet………….
Ummm….the other question is that if these threats have been taken seriously EARLY ENOUGH! I believe they have been not because there is much of a possibility of any direct strike on the United States but the potential of it on our forces in the area and loyal allies such as Japan and the Republic of South Korea.
SERIOUSLY………My worry is Baby Leader in trying to appease his generals has pushed himself into a corner and will have to strike something. We shall see? So far it looks like very prudent measures are in place to show this is realized as a potential.
Never underestimate the drive of an enemy – that would really be stupid. We are not in panic mode but caution and thought are and should be the order of the day.
“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”
My LIFE is so bigger than “me”……. the things that I do…don’t do…the things that I say or even dont say etc…etc….
One reason why some of the ones that you have given to, poured into, helped and ministered to are not the same ones who are there for you now, is because the were not your friends, but your assignment.
You can not build a relationship or set up a friendship in the “natural” off an assignment that is “spiritual.”
I really do not know why there are sooooooo many people who are dare devils and seem to live high off the hog with drenilen….. I get wanting to do something OUT THERE and trying something just a tad bit crazy…… but GEESH!
So now I am really assuming that when some or even most of these people get hurt from THEIR OWN ACTIONS, that should be some degree of pity for them? I cannot see why……. Just call your insurance company and keep it moving!.
Nope…. please do not feel bad, just ask yourself if you would participate in any of these activities… and 9 out of 10 people more likely say NO……Some need to get life insurance as well as regular medical insurance with these crazy stunts!
I woke up today STILL thinking of this past weekend and the Funeral / Home – Going Service Celebration of my FIRST male example in ministry. Pastor Tim was a pastor that loves – not because God is in his heart but because he is in the heart of God.
His thoughts, actions and messages to the congregation always come from the heart of God. He was a great man that really is driven by his passion for God and his vision for God’s vision. Pastor Tim worked tirelessly in ministry and I have never seen him give any less prayer, time and energy to someone else’s vision than he did to his own. Even though he was a pastor, he was an extraordinary servant and an even more exemplary as a worshipper. He consistently encouraged us to become worshippers of God more than anything, regardless of our age.
He was concerned about the whole person and his lifestyle is one that can be mimicked in the church, at home or at work. He was a proud husband and father and goes to great lengths to protect his family sometimes praying over them all night long. Always instructing them in how to hear God; draw near to God; honor God; give God all!
He was especially special to me on a personal note because he trained my mother to a place in God where I was actually able to see who God really was and what He can do. She was MY EXAMPLE because he became HER EXAMPLE.
Everyone who walked into the doors of Christian Temple was actually able to start fresh in the kingdom. It was life changing for me. And that’s what Pastor Tim did for many of us–change lives!
Pastor Tim was a father figure to many and I will deeply miss him….
First let me thank a blog that I follow called Digestible Politics for making me even brain storm this morning! I was up getting my mind ….body and spirit together then I started blogging! I then fooled around and ran across one of the blogs on this very same subject as well and my mind started GOING. …….hmmmmmm!!!!! Lol
I am a woman but I also enjoy my femininity. Just because I may be able to do some acts like a man does not mean that I should!
WOMEN fighting on The Frontline…… Welp ” TO ME”…..This sounded like a Feminist desire..wanting to be on the front line as men. Some of them who are mothers and wives should talk to their families about making thus huge and over the top decision.
When you see a female police officer when she first joins the force verses about 5 years AFTER she has been on the force, you may almost NOT even recognize her……… Those male characteristics…tendencies…form…aura..etc..etc..etc.. takes its toll on her.
By now, if she lasted that long, she is one of the boys…..she has a horrid potty mouth like them, has tons of aggression, her walk is even different, her past flirting eyes has now changed into a gazing barking bite, she seriously feels more comfy in pants than a nice flowing summer dress, she is less likely to show her emotions too! As women, YES! We are stong…. but wisdom allows us to know our place and do well in “those places”…..
When I was in high school I also tried out for the ALL BOYS WRESTLING team because there were a bunch of girls who complained to the principal that there should be an ALL GIRLS WRESTLING TEAM.
The principal said no but talked to the coach and stated for any girl who would try out and was able to MAKE IT could be apart of the team.. When I think of wrestling, I think of MY SON!! Why? Because he is a male.
I tried out and made it but I also chose to QUIT…. I did it “just because” and to prove a silly point but I had enough sense and understanding even while I was young and in HIGH SCHOOL to know that the sport was for males only and I cannot complain if I am a girl on a DOMINATED MALE sport and cry because someone touched me inappropriately!!
One other girl passed as well and she stayed on the team for 2 weeks and quit because she realized THE TRUTH as well. She never really admitted why she quit but I knew why and others did too!!!!
Women being in MALE dominated roles do this I feel because she wanted to prove something to men and even herself.. She has changed her poodle character for a pit bull and has changed her dainty and sweetheart personality and aura to a Doberman Pincher.
I’m all for women and equality …race equality etc. But fighting to be a CEO v.s. fighting to go undercover for the DEA, be on a Navy Ship with over 2, 000 MEN who are known to be out at sea for several months at a time to wanting to be on the frontline and weighing about 130 – 150 pounds and NOT able to carry their fellow soldiers who will be roughly 220 pounds …JUST IS NOT HAVING WISDOM.
I know and understand to a certain degree how some women may feel via certain positions but when they made G.I. Joe, there was a reason and a statement behind that… and like 50 years later they made G..I. Jane…the movie with Demi Moore as well as the Barbie doll.
Guess what! The doll didn’t sell well and the movie only did well because Demi Moore was a household name via acting but there were NO SEQUALS to the movie or another mock movie was ever made with a women in Navy Seals let alone being on the front line.
