I fully agree with this, and is doing it in a murderous fashion…no regard for America, those who have given it their all…or the families who live with the consequences of his pathological self-“sin”teredness Truly a Kenyan-authored disregard for life. His devaluing everyone else to promote himself reminds me so much of the temptation of Jesus in Mt.4: “All of these things I will give to you, if you will fall down and worship me.” Cardoza was “right on”.

I’m glad we are getting out of Iraq, and it wouldn’t hurt my feelings if we got out of Aschanistan, too.
I’m tired of seeing our soldiers get killed due to hideously stupid, PC RoE thought up by desk-driving brass asshats.
Political correctness has no place in war.
I thought we had learned our lesson about that sort of thing during Vietnam.
It appears we didn’t learn squat.

When I read this morning the size of the contracts to Blackwater, et al, it all seemed to fit for me.Veiled spending commitments while using his office as CIC to announce a “vote-getter-for-sure”, another reckless campaign promise to bring the “war” to a halt…irregardless. Of course, America has short-term memory loss and will not recall the reckless promise to Abbas, the one to whom he made his first phone call to in Jan.,2009, regarding the establishment of a Palestinian state.The whole mess: Treddle, mere treddle. (Hey, I just found this word yesterday!!)

British Dialect. I found it in “Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Second Edition. Copyrights beginning 1953 until 1983.
I was looking up “trodle” for my granddaughter, Mia, as i had never heard of it and I ran into treddle. You might say that I “stepped in it!” Turns out Mia had misspelled her word from class and, maybe unknowingly, suggested a new hastag for twitter! It certainly does speak pungently of BHMO’s latest foreign relations conflict with Karzai.
And yes, I do have a penchant for new words, in the dictionary or not.

Dear GF, You are a loved friend of FOTM, and maybe you’re having a lousy day, but I’m frankly appalled by your comment. The headline on Drudge says 1,000 are feared dead from that 7.2 Turkey earthquake. Just out of curiosity, if your neck of the woods is struck with a huge earthquake tomorrow, would you also say that it’s God “having his payback”? So you presume to know God’s mind? I don’t! John 9: 1As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he… Read more »

Moving away from the retribution comment, how is James? And did they discover the cause for the rise in K+?

Thanks for asking, Dennis. James’ K+ is now decreased to within normal range. They’re still doing tests to find out the cause.

Wonderful, simply wonderful. Hoping the “rest of the story” unfolds as nicely.

I’m pretty sure that I had only ginger ale in the glass, but, then again, we were having BBQ that evening!

In John Chapter 9, it is most clear that Jesus is telling us that suffering and hardship are allowed to occur so that a greater good can come about known to Our Lord. Therefore, we must Trust In Jesus, Our Lord. And we must try to pattern our behavior after Our Lord. In this passage, He cured the blind man because of his immense compassion, mercy and love. We must show that same compassion, mercy and love to those that are suffering. I ask everyone who reads this post to immediately pray for all of the people in Turkey. Remember… Read more »

Then GF, be true to your nature. We cannot know the mind of God to say that God, with his hands clenched rubbing them back and forth, said it is time to payback Turkey, therefore, I will impose upon them a terrible earthquake. If John Chapter 9 is conducive to your true nature, and you have that information as much as Dr. Eowyn does, then listen to Jesus speaking to you. And, Jesus came to fulfill the Old Law, to draw all people unto Himself and ALL OF US ARE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE! The great missionary Saint, Paul, brought this… Read more »

GF, I thought you were speaking about your true nature insofar as the kindness of Jesus was expressed in John Chapter 9. It is now obvious to me that you have meant something else. I was merely commenting about what you said as to your true nature. Nevertheless, back on the issue that you made about God paying back Turkey via an earthquake. I reiterate everything I said to you before as the message of the Gospel. I also send you my very best wishes and regards, having meant no disrespect to you whatsoever. That is not “in my nature”… Read more »

Thank you GF! You are also dearly loved, especially by Our Lord, Jesus. I tell Him numerous times a day how much I love Him!
