Wake Up America

Let's make some comparisons.

The United States use to be known for mind-boggling accomplishments.  Between 1941 and 1943 we built the Pentagon while at war with both the Germans and Japanese.  The cost of construction was $83 million ($1.3 billion in 2013 dollars) and for decades it was the largest building in the world.

These days our government can't even build a website.  The projected cost of the Obamacare website was $93 million.  The actual cost was $634 million, or about half the cost of the Pentagon.



This is what's happened to Shanghai, China from 1987 to present...

Think About It

Liberal Progressive Democrats will tell you the Founding Fathers got a lot of things wrong.  They say we should forget about our past and concentrate on the future.  They say we should forget about God in whom we trust. They say The Constitution doesn't say what it says.  They say we should scrap The Bill of Rights.  They say it's time to stop electing a bunch of cigar smoking old white guys to run this country.  They say all this nostalgia crap is what's really destroying America.  

Well if that's the case, why do we all sit around in the evenings doing this...

Kids Say The Darndest Things

Our three year old granddaughter Kate sat with her mommy in church this morning and it was Communion Sunday.  As the bread was being passed down the pew Kate quietly whispered in her mother's ear, "Here comes your snack".

Then, as mom was trying not to laugh and explain the significance of the bread, Kate asked, "Where's your drink?"

Listen to the past, speak to the present, see to the future.

The following is "sort of" a quote from "The Terror", by Arthur Machen, 1917

And how, asks Huvelius, are such wars to be waged?  The wise prince, he replies, will begin by assuming the enemy to be infinitely corruptible and infinitely stupid, since stupidity and corruption are the chief characteristics of man.  So the prince will make himself friends in the very councils of his enemy, and also amongst the populace, bribing the wealthy by proffering to them the opportunity of still greater wealth, and winning the poor by swelling words.  "For, contrary to the common opinion, it is the wealthy who are greedy of wealth; while the populace are to be gained by talking to them about hope, their unknown god.  And so much are they enchanted by the words hope, change, and such like, that the wise can go to the poor, rob them of what little they have, dismiss them with a hearty kick, and win their hearts and their votes for ever, if only they will assure them that the treatment which they have received is called change."  Guided by these principles, says Huvelius, the wise prince will entrench himself in the country he desires to conquer; "nay, with but little trouble, he may actually and literally throw his garrisons into the heart of the enemy country before war has begun."
