    Humph. This administration’s standard MO is what we used to call “Mind f*** 101,” back before I became a lady. The other term is gaslighting (from the 1938 British play “Gas Light” wherein a husband attempts to drive his wife crazy using a variety of tricks causing her to question her own perceptions and sanity.) So Kerry pretending/saying he is a true friend to Israel is belied by his actions.

    I’d like to know how many people actually think like these protesters. Do they believe the U.S. and Israel intentionally bomb innocents? Or that neither of our countries CARE about children??? It’s wicked. The protestors are hopelessly deceived.
    Israel/Palestine conflict is tragic. It breaks my heart. But there is no way you can listen to both sides speak and remain uncommitted to Israel.
    Constant prayers for peace from this grandma.

    Whoa, is that the truth! My favorite “misbehaving in church” story was not mine, but told to me when I apologized for my busy youngster. Apparently her little one crawled away under the pews before mama could stop her. The tot came back with a woman’s high heels! And the nice barefoot woman collected her shoes, smiling, after the service.

    Quite a lot of details missing here, but the heart of the story to me, is that a gun was used as deterrent. These sorts of stories are seldom in the news, since MSM likes to promote stronger gun controls. If the victim had not had a gun, he likely would have been killed. Certainly he was unable to call the police, which probably would not have arrived in time to save him, had he called them. So yes, owning a gun can be a great thing. Glad this gentleman was able to save himself and no one was killed. Hope the bad guys get the max for this attempted murder. Hmmm… would that be 3 squares a day and a home at last??

    cdn1979, of course you couldn’t possibly envision the cascading disaster that befalls us when the rest of the world is at war. And your experience would not allow you to grasp the concept that a strong leader, with strong military support, can keep events from conflating and overwhelming systems. Neither Jesus, Spiderman, FDR nor Voltaire hold any sway over you: “To whom much is given…..” If only your simple-minded view were true.

    My first thought, too, yougotta! Are the American people paying for this? This seems an egregious dereliction. The President is not PAID to do fundraising, which seems all the more shocking when it is his go-to tactic post-crisis!

    HUGE failure in leadership, on both sides as far as I’m concerned. If your position is so well-founded, you ought to be able to persuade the opposition to at least SOME degree. I also reiterate my complaint: the laws are so long, so convoluted, that no one knows what’s in them. I think about the recent rejection of the President’s request for $3.7B aid for the border crisis and remember that the President doesn’t have much support because he has blatantly lied, time after time. “A pox on both your houses!” It’s like the La Brea Tar Pit inside the Beltway.

    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    We have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.

    Hmmm… it would be my guess that “most people” are in favor of recognizing a power that is higher (God) than YOU, Third.

    Oh, you bet, Chucky77! That’s exactly what they are! I am the most soft-hearted woman in the world but what is going on at our border stretches credibility. If you don’t think this is part of an orchestrated take-down of our nation, you have to be blind, deaf and dumb! Obama should get his Air Force One down to Mexico and tell Enrique Pena Nieto what’s what. If Nieto doesn’t start cooperating to stop these illegals at MEXICO’S southern border, AND eliminate crime (drugs, cartels, thugs, gunrunners, etc.) at the U.S. border, he should have the proverbial s*** storm on his hands as American soldiers are let loose down there!
    AND there should be international cooperation (how about $ from U.N.???) to address the issues of children and disease. OH! I’m on a rant!

    “We can’t do it for them.” butbutbut! As another hotbed falls to ISIL, power is consolidated with the terrorists, the ultimate goal being attacks on the USA! “It could eventually pose a threat to American interests.” You mean like the Americans trapped there NOW? Like the “9/11-ers” that are being put in place at this very moment? I don’t think anyone could second-guess Bushes approach because, where the ME is concerned, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I do, however, believe that Obama is clueless in foreign policy. But the military understands what his policies have done to this nation. They will not forget.

    So. The WH apologized for the oversight. If it weren’t so typical, I’d be hyperventilating over it.

  • June 3, 2014 at 10:20am

    I am outraged! So mad I am spluttering and spitting! Bergdahl/Benghazi???? Meanwhile, our Marine in Mexico should be an easy fix and where is Obama orJohn Kerry on THAT??? I must now retire to my couch with a cold compress on my brow before I have an apoplectic fit.

    When I was younger, I saw life on earth as pyramid, with Man at the top. Then I got a dog, a dog of my heart, and I realized that she had skills I did not. After that I saw things differently. Genesis says “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Now I feel as though I “rule over”the earth as I “ruled over” my children, with love as well as awareness of their magnificence.

    Heavens to Betsy, TheMotWay, science relies on mankind’s itsy-bitsy brain to explain things. It is the best we can do as humans, but if we start believing we can understand EVERYTHING — well then we understand… nothing.

    Whether it is real or not, the comments are interesting. I must live in a bubble because here I am a Grandma and I can’t think of a Christian in my life who was like this. (Smoovious, I am curious about your life. How is it you have met so many jerks?) I mean, Christians are definitely normal humans, so naturally they act like asses at least part of the time. But I, too, begin to think this is a fake letter. It’s so dang obvious that these women are hypocrites. Harrumph, I say!

  • May 5, 2014 at 1:52pm

    wo12b1, that’s it exactly. How many times did Obama say he “just found out” about something? Fast and Furious, AP targeting, Benghazi, the IRS, the VA deaths… let’s see, did I leave out anything? Really, the choice has to be either incompetence or evil intent. It’s like the keystone cops.

    Now everybody can pile on ohiograndma: I like Uncle Bob. He’s a shill to make the show interesting and I think he does a good job of it. “The American people don’t care?” Aw no, yes we DO. Bob knows that. He just wants to get us worked up so we tune in again tomorrow. On a totally unrelated note, I cannot watch Bill O’Reilly at all any more. His idea of “fair and balanced” makes him look not too smart to me. I think he’s too old. Sorry Bill.

    “Punk kid” comes to mind. What an embarrassment. I do not hesitate to say THIS embarrassment is representative of the White House today. No moral fiber. No gravitas. No… nuthin.
