I have never re- posted stuff from FaceBook before and hope I am not breaking any 'rules' -- but I think this subject matter has merit. Regardless of my personal opinions about the prosecution of the war in Afghanistan, my own nephews and friends of friends are fighting over there-- much like my generation did in Vietnam. "Our's is not to ponder why-- our's is but to do or die..." ~an old [and young] soldier's slogan. IMHO, this is a very mismanaged war by a goof ball in the WH who can't even speak without a teleprompter or someone holding his hand-- and NO practical experience in any field except Chicago style corruption! At least, Sarah Palin was the Commander in Chief of her State's National Guard and is qualified with a rifle...Ha!
As I was preparing to go to the Milwaukee VAMC [Veteran's Administration Medical Center], the VA called to ask me a few minutes ago to reschedule my appointment for today because 2 of their regular Orthopedic Doctors are sick today. So I didn't really have any choice but to comply.
My good friend, Joe vander Mullen, was so kind as to come over early this morning to help take my trash out to the back alley for pick up today! THANK YOU, BRO. JOE!! Joe is in his mid-80's and has his own health concerns. Please pray for Joe, and his fine wife, Doris.
Well, if the VA appointed cleaning lady doesn't come today, I am thinking that I might hobble to my truck and visit Sharon-- for another stimulating game of CHESS, and visiting, but we shall see. The 'gas situation' will have a draining effect on most Americans-- and that is MY humble guess.
Please also pray for the Marines mentioned below in a FaceBook message who are fighting and dying to keep the enemy of America 'contained' "over there" rather than fight in our own country. However... me thinks that the enemy is ALREADY in America via transit through our Southern border... and don't they somewhat resemble our Mexican neighbors so that they can pass for one of them and move around undetected .... duh?? Why is it that most of America understands this simple truth/ reality, but 'Homeland Security' and the WH don't??
My last thought today in posting this humble Blog is Psalm 37, that Joe vander Mullen asked me to read yesterday, but this is only the first 3 verses... "Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.  Trust in the LORD, and do good, so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed." The term: "Fret", means: eat away, gnaw, irritate, vex, annoy, worry. My great "DEFINED King James version Bible" has footnotes of all the uncommon, archaic, Old English terms on the bottom of each page to help the new Christian better understand the Scriptures. These fine Bibles are not very expensive, but a 'Medium print bible' cost only about $15-- hard cover. See this fine web site: biblefortoday.org
