Massachusetts’ successful rebellion

Baker and Coakley

Today it makes little difference where you get your news. You’ll most likely see some kind of article discussing the political victory in Tuesday’s Coakley-vs.-Brown palooza. Almost immediately, all the news outlets began asking the same question: What does this victory mean? Every answer imaginable has blanketed the comment sections of political blogs, online polls, OpEd pages, etc. And, after the dust has settled on Tuesday’s election, no doubt we will have gleaned several good lessons.

But, it occurred to me: America reacted against the blatant hypocrisy when the previous Republican-controlled Congress lurched to the left and elected the opposite party the next chance they could. America also reacted against the blatant hypocrisy when the Democrat-controlled Congress lurched even further to the left. And now a Conservative (and by some reports a Conservative not in blind lock-step with either Democrat or Republican party) will ascend to the “people’s seat” in a state with a very liberal history.

God Will Provide

God will provide

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old shotgun and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go out and kill something for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit and he shot at the rabbit and missed it. Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it. As he went further, he saw a wild turkey in the tree and he had only one bullet, but a voice came to him and said “pray first, aim high and stay focused.”

However, at the same time, he saw deer which was a better kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattle snake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattle snake. Read More

Lieberman Calls for Unity with ‘War Cabinet’

Joe Lieberman

Lieberman Calls for ‘War Cabinet’ — Senator Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) proposed a special bi-partisan war council Tuesday to provide advice and direction to the president. Lieberman’s “Bipartisan Victory in Iraq Administrative Group” would help dull some of the bitter tension between Republicans and Democrats. The council would resemble those created in the Vietnam War and World War II, but Lieberman said he had not thought through the details of how the panel would work. It would likely meet weekly to discuss conditions in Iraq and recommend policy. In a speech at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessment, Lieberman said the war debate is poisoned by partisanship.

Thoughts on Zarqawi and the word “Crusade”

Musab Al Zarqawi

I just ran across Chad Evan’s post on the web, Zarqawi Tape on Fallujah, and I began to think about a particular phrase that was supposedly said by Musab al-Zarqawi.

“I speak to you my nation as the blood of your sons is flowing in Iraq and especially in Falluja after the onslaught of crusaders,” he said.

Specifically, Zarqawi feels that we are crusaders, and is “kind” are fighting in a jihad, or crusade. Of course, from his perspective, we are evil and they are heroic warriors for allah. Zarqawi’s god is nonetheless confused and it seems that his benevolence is at conflict or at odds with his own judgment. Read More
