What Can You Do To Help America?

Happy New Year, America! I know it is hard for many of us to feel like anything we do is "really going to matter" with regard to the state of our nation. Well, if you are one of those people...let me tell you one simple (yet empowering) thing you can do, and should do, daily. Pray! Yes, pray for our nation. Not one of those quickies, but rather one of those down on your knees in all humility types. Bible: The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16). So maybe you are not a righteous individual, but you are spiritually inclined. Pray! Maybe you are not as eloquent as you think you should be to get your message across. Just remember...God does not critique your delivery, but He does scrutinize your heart. Sometimes we think God is not listening when really...we are not talking.

Note: We need to do everything within our power to help our country remain free.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!

West Point's Backdrop Couldn't Save Obama's Flop

I'm back...thanks for hanging in there. This blog was intentionally delayed until President Obama got back to General McChrystal's request for additional troops in Afghanistan. Now, with many of America's finest surrounding him...the cadets at West Point...he had an opportunity to do his own Commander-In-Chief. It was the most eloquently delivered speech of "fence straddling" I have heard in a long time. I am quite sure he has read the book Speak Like Churchhill, Stand Like Lincoln, by James C. Humes, yet he fell embarrassingly short of either leaders' comparison tonight. After waiting approximately seventy days to initially talk to the President (face-to-face) about his need for 45,000 troops, it is hard to fathom that this "strategy" is the outcome of McChrystal's...and America's...additional three months of waiting. How many lobbyists and special interest groups does one have to poll...or avert a crisis? Mr. President, to stand like Lincoln you need a backbone. I'll say it again...There are dire consequences for just PLAYING WAR. There is only one way to win a war...decisively!

Note: A wise man's words are well received with or without the accompaniment of eloquence.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
