Thanks for your thoughts

I appreciate all the good vibes, well wishes, prayers and anything else you had to offer. That was difficult news to receive last night. I try to stay away from politics and my emphatic opinions because it seems to drive people away. Every now and then I spout off my thoughts, and now that may be happening more often.

I’m proud of my cousin for making the choice to join the USMC branch of our military. He’s a smart kid and was very sure of his decision. I will think of his safety every day. I will pray that his leaders make good decisions that keep him and his fellow Marines in good care.

Yet I can’t see the wisdom of the choices of the very tip-top head of his leadership. You know who. Initials start with GB and DC and CR and (formerly) DR. As time goes by, more and more comes out about the poor decision to go to war. The faulty ‘evidence’. The Plame scandal. Tenet’s sad little protestations. And now, the fact that the ‘rebuilding’ effort takes one step forward then, when we look away, two steps back. It’s like trying to clean up after toddlers. You fix one thing, then move on to the next, and they come behind you and break it again. When are we going to face facts that our ideas don’t translate? Their culture, their religion, their mentality, their priorities – none of it is even remotely close to ours. And what makes our administration think that these people want ‘democracy’ foisted on them?

And the thing that leaves me in even greater amazement is that Congress was fully ready to impeach Clinton for getting a blow job in the Oval Office, then lying about it. And the only thing Congress will do now is pass a half-ass resolution that they knew would be vetoed, with no hope of overriding said veto with the required 2/3 of Congress. The man led us to war on lies…and not just lies that they thought were true…lies that they knew were lies! And we allow him to continue.

I can’t figure it out. None of it makes sense to me. I’m dumbfounded. And it makes me wonder who is really running the show here? I surely don’t think it’s the people that are elected as officials to serve in the people’s interest. I’m starting to wonder if our system isn’t broken.
