“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” –Thomas Jefferson
But I’m afraid that when lawless men are naively elected into office, the Constitution may not be enough restraint, as we are currently witnessing with the Obama administration. Outlooks for the new year predict that he will rule by himself, circumventing Congress and the will of the American people.
The pros and cons of homosexuals openly serving in the military has somewhat eluded me. It is a subject I haven’t given a lot of thought or study to, preferring to leave that decision to those in the military who just might have a wiser view of things than mine.
Today I read a compelling argument from an army lieutenant colonel who is resigning. He is resigning not necessarily because he objects to homosexuals per se, but he is resigning for what his government will be forcing him to do and forcing him to force upon the men he commands. Even if government does not acknowledge it, people have consciences. To force someone to do something against their conscience is tyranny. Read the entire post here. It certainly makes one fear for the future of the military in our nation, which in turn makes one wonder about the future protection of the country. Politics and the military (i.e. the protection of our nation) may not make good bedfellows. No pun was intended.
Harry Reid, Democrat Senator from Nevada, if anyone doesn’t know that, has pulled the hugely bloated omnibus spending bill from the Senate floor tonight.
All one can say about that is “Praise the Lord”.
The insanity of a last minute Christmas Eve (remember last year’s holiday gift? ObamaCare), push to spend 1.3 trillion more is too unbelievable to believe, but there you have it. Desperation does strange things to people. I hear de-nial is NOT a river in Egypt. Think about it.
