Memorial Day

Anonther Memorial Day... and according to an Associated Press story "Nearly 1,000 American troops have been killed in Iraq since last Memorial Day, and that number is expected to rise."

Read my Memorial Day post from last year... Today I Fly The Flag

Keep praying for our leaders...
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
(1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Peace, Love, and Light through Jesus the Christ!

Bush Warned of Iraq Challenges

Here is the biggest "I told you so" that I have heard in a long time... Bush was twice warned of Iraq challenges

From the Los Angeles Times

Prewar reports alerted the president to the difficulty of establishing democracy, among other assessments that proved accurate. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), said the report demonstrated that "the intelligence community gave the administration plenty of warning about the difficulties we would face if the decision was made to go to war." He added: "These dire warnings were widely distributed at the highest levels of government, and it's clear that the administration didn't plan for any of them."


Too bad our President didn't heed this proverb...

Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14

Peace, Love, and Light through Jesus the Christ!

Candy Flavored Crap

This is the reason that I feel the "War On Drugs" should start to look like a real war... Candy Flavored Meth. What sick mind thought of that? To borrow a line from my favorite Bruce Cockburn song... "If I had a rocket launcher...Some son of a bitch would die "

Snopes.com - Candy Meth

UPDATE 02/29/2012: I blogged about this back in '07... I went back and rechecked Snopes.com and they have updated the story. It turns out that the Meth is just colored, not flavored. The color comes from ingredients used to make it and not any flavorings. But, Meth is still pure evil!

"Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (Genesis 6:5)
