The Perfect Democratic Candidate?

He didn't smoke or drink, ate a vitamin rich, vegetarian diet, regularly consulted an astrologer and communed with the spirits of dead people and opposed animal experimentation. His name was Adolf Hitler. (Maybe he could be Hellary's running mate. She communes with the dead!)

Twisted Values

America used to exalt heroes. Therefore every young American kid wanted to grow up and be a hero.

Now we exalt victims. So now everyone wants to be a "victim."

Where Was the "Post-war War"?

Where was the News Mafia's "Post-war War" on Pres. Clinton's invasion of Haiti? I saw pictures of Haitians bashing in the skulls of other Haitians with rocks and there was no "outrage" from the News Mafia.

Where was the "Post-war War" after Clinton's Kosovo bombing?

Why does the News Mafia only attack the military actions of Republicans?

This is just a tiny fraction of the great generation of young people between 20 & 30 years old. Some might be just under or over those ages but still fit the bill. You can add "and wife" to most of the above. I've also excluded some tremendous single young ladies whose desire is to serve the Lord. I know that some of this age group are self-possessed losers, but I believe we have more outstanding young people from this age group than any I've seen in recent years. I've also omitted hundreds that I either forgot or haven't even met.

Fight On!

Early on the morning of June 2, 1969 the American destroyer U.S.S. Frank E. Evans mistakenly crossed the bow of the Australian aircraft carrier, Melborne during SEATO naval exercises. The 2,200 ton destroyer was sheared in half. The bow section sank immediately taking 74 sailors to their death. Sailors onboard the foundering aft section lashed it to the aircraft carrier to keep it afloat. Lost on the Evans were three brothers, Gary, Gregory and Kelly Sage of Niobrara, Neb. Informed of the tragedy, Gregory's wife, Linda, said, "We don't blame anyone. We don't blame the Navy or Australia. It was the boys' wish that they serve together. That's the way they wanted it, and that's the way we accept it. I guess it couldn't be helped." Fight on!

"Dreadnoughts"

The British named their WWI battleships "Dreadnoughts" for; "Dread nought for God is with you."
