The Friday Furo Questus

Well, the good news is that I'm not feeling especially angry today - which after last week, is probably a good thing.

Of course, there's always the antics of Congress to get the blood pressure up. There's the comments of Dick Durbin; the mock impeachment trial Rep. Conyers put on; and the fact that Sen. Byrd will be the Senator from West Virginia until the day he dies, so the old coot can say anything he wants despite how deranged it is, and lecture you and me on proper race relations despite the fact he was an officer of the KKK - and no one calls the old [censored] on it. (Did I mention I don't like Byrd much?) And then there is this - the lead Democrat in the House, Nancy Pelosi, declared the war in Afghanistan over. Gee, I hadn't noticed. So does this mean you don't want us to get Bin Laden anymore?

This is what drives me nuts about the Dems - they have no idea how to prosecute the War on Terror. No suggestions on how to so it better. With all too few exceptions (Lieberman, Miller), they can't even agree we are at war. And they have no ideas.

Folks - anybody can b***h. It's coming up with solutions that's hard. So stop whining about Bush, and start coming up with ideas.

Of course, if you need a dose of me being angry, go here.

By the way, Bryan (e.gage) has turned up some good stuff this week - a story about a female suicide bomber and a sober reminder of the missing child problem in the U.S. Check them out if you have not already.

Some Recommended Reading:

Thought of the Week:
"Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand." - St. Augustine

Churchill Quote of the Week:
At the end of the war, before the election that he lost in 1945, The Times of London prepared an editorial suggesting that he campaign as a nonpartisan world leader and retire gracefully rather soon afterward. The editor first informed Churchill that he was going to make these two points. "Mr. Editor," Churchill said to the first point, "I fight for my corner." And, to the second: "Mr. Editor, I leave when the pub closes."

Letterman had an interesting segment about the Democrats and the flag burning issue...a truly novel can't burn the flag, but you can microwave it on HIGH for 3 minutes.
