This is all we need, coddle kids even more. May as well kiss the Armed Forces goodbye, in the Army we had to get up early and go to bed late. Every time I've heard this sleep research nonsense come up, I picture a group of not-so-early risers, in a lab next to the don't spank kids research group, coming up with yet another way of telling us our ancestors had it all wrong, and any of us is lucky to even be here.
I personally can't sleep more than about 6 hours a night, and know of many others like me. I also know of those who could sleep 12 hours a day and it wouldn't be enough. To actually promote the more sleep agenda using our school system as a basis, is ridiculous, but a cunning way to actually get folks to buy into it.
No, the memory problem is for anything that happened under bush jr., oh, I'm sorry, we are supposed to forget all about that, it's Obama's fault; my bad!
'...and where marriage, family, liberty, faith, even gender are declared obsolete.'
Last time I checked, none of these things are even close to being declared obsolete; except in the minds of the doomsayers. I swear, you folks living in fear and dread of anything and everything, how do you do it? I don't like a lot that goes on in this world, but haven't lived a second of my life in fear of anything since I got out of school (another story).
It seems one side wants to control people's rights while all the time purporting to defend said rights, even bemoaning the diminishing of these rights. It sure seems to me that there are too many criticizing the government and it's policies aimed at freeing up the oppressed, yet their uptake is to take rights away from anyone they believe to be against their convictions, whether it's religion, lifestyle choices, etc.
What ever happened to live and let live?
'I posted that link (one of many researched) finding that it provided the best analogy for my thoughts on the issue.'
'This link provides an in-depth scope of how the leaders of this country are totally incompetent to be in the position that they possess'
I could be wrong, but these two statements don't say the same thing at all. While your intent may have been to use the link to provide the best analogy, your lead-in to the link post states that it provides an in-depth scope, not just someone's opinion.
Now, just who is it doing the contradicting?
Much better way to live than having a doom and gloom outlook, always looking for the worst in those we don't agree with.
I assure you, it is not MY scope that is limited, and what's with the all-knowing comments, comment? Again, read your posts and then mine, and perhaps a better understanding of who comes off as all knowing will emerge, though I seriously doubt it.
I don't know it all, I do know that while I haven't agreed with each and every President we've had nor their actions/policies, I would be very hard pressed to ever accuse any one of them as not having our Country at the fore front of their care and concern, the current President included.
Hmmm, redstate.com. Now that has to be an impartial website, especially with a URL like that. And how interesting, all the points are a certain parties on-going arguing points; coincidence maybe?
As I always state, I have no party affiliation, and most of these posts are a clear indication of why. I think for myself, I don't buy into any of the nonsense written when all it does is shovel tripe, and when there is a clear political slant to any author's writings, I waste little time turning the page.
There certainly isn't any bias or party affiliation in this reporter's handbag, is there. See, this is all part of the problem. Believing things you read because they fit into your viewpoint. There have always been advisers to the Pres. who have little or no military experience. Even for those that have such experience, there's still that party affiliation issue that can arise.
22 years in the Army teaches one. who keeps their eyes wide open, that stars on your collar does not make you a top strategist. We had a saying about respecting the rank but not the man, and there were plenty of prime examples for that saying.
This was actually supposed to be U a reply to iopine's ? not sure why it ended up down here.
Um, let me see... Everyday simple facts and having my eyes and ears open and NOT slanted by any party affiliation. For any and all who take the stand that any President cares more for other Countries, factions, etc., merely because said President is not from their chosen political affiliation, has some very serious issues.
Is it any real wonder what this Country's real problem is? This back and forth nonsense between the two main parties, the constant waste of time and energy over moronic ideas that belittle our Leader's, is truly pathetic. One for all and all for one seems to be a much better course to run than the one many are on these days, as the Letter above clearly shows.
People believe in things for many reasons, faith and religious conviction is one of the leading reasons as is political leaning. While some believe the wine, as referred to in the Bible, is actually grape juice, and this line of reasoning harms no one, it is countered by faiths that believe the wine in the Bible is wine, and this again, harms no one. While I believe one way as is my right, some believe another, and are just as right, neither with any more right than the other. To purposely demean another for their beliefs is wrong.
That's the biggest problem we face, is accepting others and not forcing our beliefs on them, at least in matters such as faith based reasoning. There are many faiths in this World and a lot of different perspectives on how life is, what the Bible says/means, what's good for us health wise, etc. It would serve us all well to respect others choices, not condemn one another because they don't buy into our way of thinking, and realize the World would be much better with more respect and less sniping.
