My wife twisted her knee so I have been doing her leg work. I am not a nice guy so I tend to get a little testy, when things don't go perfectly. So she says to me this morning, "We need to go to the post office." I tried not to imagine the post office as I have always known them to be.

So as I leave the car she says, "Get me a book of Madona and Child stamps."

I get inside and there are eight people ahead of me. They all have multiple packages. I knew right then it was frustration city coming my way. Sometimes I hate being right but I was this morning. It took two hours to get there, wife timed it at fifteen minutes but I swear it was two hours. When I finally get to the window the woman says. I don't have any of those in my drawer let me go to the safe to get more.

Another hour, five minutes, before she comes back to tell me that they have sold out of that particular stamp. I just took my money and walked away. When I got back to the car my wife said, "Well didn't you get another kind."

"Heck no." I said. "If I had you would have told me that we came just for THOSE stamps." After a few short words. I bought a different book of stamps for her at the grocery store. We had to go there anyway.

Well it appears we are going to have health care reform whether the people want it or not. Of course there will be a price to pay for those who forget who the boss really is.

Everyone I know understands that this health care isn't healthy for them.

the only shock here...

The only people shocked by the administration's running around trying to claim that the Fort Hood shooting was NOT a terrorist action are those people who are still in denial as well. And probably those who are still trying to find a way to blame Bush or Chaney for it.

I have no idea how long it will be before the rest of the country wakes up to the fact that it really is a war going on out there. You can just bet that terrorism will come visit us again, just as long as we appear to be an easy target.

People still don't seem to get the notion that we are going to have to fight these guys somewhere. Bush/Chaney chose their spot and fought terrorist in Iraq. Now it looks as though the bad guys are going to be choosing the spots. We are going back on defense in the war on terror. It is stupid but predictable.

We made the argument for years,if we didn't fight them in Iraq, we would be fighting them somewhere else. These guys are going to attack us somewhere, but none of the bleeding hearts would listen. They all thought, and still do, that we can love our enemy into submission, good luck with that one.

Now no matter what 'the boy blunder' decides in Afghanistan, we look weak. Just because he is stalling the decision hoping to make some kind of personal victory out of this mess. Sometimes you just gotta take the licks kid. Try for once to put the petty political bullshit aside and DO THE RIGHT THING for us, not just yourself.

Can you Imagine, in this day of war on traditional religions, what would have been said by these jerks if the shooter had been named Goldburg. I am just amazed by all this new age thinking. Most of the time I'm glad that I'm old.

It's our own fault

The shooting at Fort Hood is our government's fault as much as anyone. No not because of our foreign policy, but because of our desire to be politically correct. This man had all the signs of a mass killer, but he was ignored because we didn't want to offend our Muslin citizens. Thirteen soldiers paid the price for our collective cowardliness.

When will someone finally have the balls to say, these people are dangerous and we are going to protect ourselves. If you don't like it, move the hell out of our country. If you can't stand with America, then get the hell out.

I don't care what your political bend, this is war not a criminal matter. Now damn it the politicians need to man up and do the right thing in memory of those soldiers at for hood, or they are going to be just as guilty as the man who pulls the next trigger. Don't look at religion, color, or anything else when you do your job, just do it damn it. This guy should never have been in a the military at the time of this shooting. If he hadn't been Muslim he would have been out on his ass a dozen times for his actions, NOT HIS BELIEFS.

Damn these cowardly politician make me sick to my stomach.

is it in trouble

Two things the democrats forgot and I'm almost sorry they are getting a wake up call so early. What got them the landslide was a one time event. They had a charismatic minority candidate. Minorities came out in droves to vote for him, and the highly idealistic independents did the same.

When two white men ran against each other this time, those two groups stayed home. Plus there is a little cult fatigue as well. So the wake up call is out there. I have a feeling all those moderate blue dog democrats are going to run like hell from the left wing agenda now. That big old mandate for change, that the leadership was beating them over the head with, took a fatal blow last night. At least in my opinion.

It's time to control the growing national debt before our money is worthless. I think there was a message sent. I would rather have them find out in the major elections next year but I'm not sure there is anything they can do about it. Once they lose that super majority things will take a change for the better. The people who want this country to be more socialist will have to take a back seat again. I wonder why they can't figure out that this was the greatest country on earth until they started to 'IMPROVE'it.

Clean up the immigration mess next. Both parties need to stop worrying about the next generation of voters and do what's right for the country.
