Heck yea, Dude & Dudett! Like, I was supposed to mow the lawn today, but first I loaded up the pipe and took a few tokes - you know, suck it in and hold it till your eyes start to bug out a little bit!! And then, I got to thinking - how would I feel if I was the grass? I mean, all it wants to do is grow and produce little grass shoots, and what's wrong with that? So I think I'll take a few more hits and ponder the problem from the grasses view!!! Come over and we'll ponder the universe, and grass, and all sorts of stuff like that, you know, Dude??!!
Considering the brain damage they are now finding in pot smokers, perhaps a habit of using cannabis should be a DISQUALIFICATION for voting! (Or holding political office, for that matter.)

PTSD

Vietnam Vet, radar air traffic controller, 1969 - 1970. I flew all over the country in small aircraft. We were shot at on many occasions. There were no real 'rear areas,' as in previous wars. Same in the middle east - no rear areas, civilian and enemy wore the same clothes, and 10 year old children may well have been equipped with weapons and the intent to kill you. How do you treat the people of a country when you cannot tell friend from foe until you are attacked? PTSD is real and I have it, but didn't know it until just a few years ago when my son, a psychiatrist, told me to go to the VA and get checked out - along with being checked for Agent Orange exposure. It turns out that I have what is considered to be very heavy exposure, but still show relatively few symptoms. (Fellow Vets, go get checked out even though you may believe that you are OK, I implore you. You will not regret it.) With my MOS I was not allowed to carry a weapon, of course, and the only time I ever had my hands on one was when I was on guard duty. At that time, I did have the chance to fire back a couple of times, and sadly, it did give me a feeling of 'getting back' at the enemy. I believe that PTSD for a military person is different than that experienced by others. When a homeowner or officer of the law has to hurt or kill someone during the commission of a crime, they at least have the knowledge that the person or persons harmed were criminals. When a soldier kills or maims someone - or supports those that do, as rear echelon individuals - there is no assurance that the person harmed or killed is a bad person. The person on the other side may be as moral and certainly have the same right to exist as the person doing the shooting or bombing. How do you justify that to your self and your God - it is a moral dilemma for all those who go to war.
That may explain why so many of our young female teachers are spending their time 'entertaining' their young male students! I don't remember any of my teachers having a desire to spend time with her students that way, but I grew up in the dark ages before pagers, cell phones and the internet! Oh, what an 'enlightened' society we live in these days!! (I am so ancient that I fear I may burn for my sins, but then the concept of a God is not accepted by many in todays' society.)
It's over. Conservatives can only win now if vast numbers of liberals and illegals stay home and don't vote during the 'voting season' - (A time when liberals can vote online, by write in, in person, from the grave, and of course, as many times as they can get away with it.) IF they are really lazy, of course, they can designate someone in the group to vote twice (oops!) I mean once for all of them, as has been seen of late. The only way to see the U.S. as it once was is to watch old movies, as I am wont to do - at least until they are outlawed as sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic, biased, and of course, teaching morals that do not apply to our current 'Enlightened and Forward' society!!
If 50% of the U.S. population depends on democrats and Obama for a lively hood, that means that almost all of us who are actually paying the bills think that Obama has expanded presidential power too much. Sadly, with the flood coming across our southern border, conservatives will soon be too much of a minority to make a real difference.
With us old white men retiring in droves, those on the left might soon wonder why their electricity, phones, roads, TV, computers etc. have become much less dependable. Seems most of todays' kids think that's work for those coming from 'south of the border.' I can attest that they are not capable of maintaining the system! You young Americans had better decide that some of you need to get technical educations.
Let her know that we have been fighting with a 'group' of people since the days of pirates and sailing ships, and their male children can field strip an AK47 before they reach their teens. Someday we will have to fight them for real, and it does not bode well for us when our children have been taught to fear ANYTHING that might cause a person bodily harm. I see that primitive fear of EVERYTHING in the eyes of most of our young persons today, and it will be hard to retrain these 'New World Citizens' into patriots willing to risk life and limb in defense of our Country and way of life. Woe to our Nation - please Pray as I do every day for our return to the God that has kept us safe through our short history as a Representative Republic.

Israel's Manifest Destiny

You need not worry about Israel. Israel is under Gods' protection. Better that all of the citizens of the U.S. worry about whether we support Israel or not, for God has said that he will bless those who support Israel, and curse those who do not. I, for one, pray every day for Israel, and all of those who make up the children of Abraham.
Why should they read the bill? First, how many liberals COULD actually read and understand any bill half as complex as the ACA bill? Second, no matter how bad, this bill is the first step to a single payer system. Third, those who get health care for 'free' will vote democrat for life, and added in with the mindless liberal voter base and 'Compassionate Conservatives.' that is a voting block that cannot be defeated. This is a win - win situation for the left no matter how it turns out, and the supposed 'right' does not have the heart or the will to stop it.
