Quote of the Day

“WHAT IF THEY GAVE A WAR AND NO ONE CAME?” For many many years we have heard the question from the anti-war left, supposedly by Carl Sandburg   I came across the original – and it’s not what you might think. Stell Dir vor, es kommt Krieg und keiner geht hin, dann kommt der Krieg zu euch! Wer zu Hause bleibt, wenn der Kampf beginnt, und lässt andere kämpfen für seine Sache, der muss sich vorsehen: Denn wer den Kampf nicht geteilt hat, der wird teilen die Niederlage. Nicht einmal Kampf vermeidet, wer den Kampf vermeiden will: Denn es wird … Continue reading

Loonies of the Left

strike again on social media. Their current plan is to overflood the White House with hate mail. Here is the post that is going around now. This has shown up on my FB page from several different people – all of whom think they are great and wonderful SJWs. On March 15th, each of us will mail the current President a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to his behavior, character and his policies, and the actions of the Republican Party. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with our dissatisfaction. We … Continue reading

Active Leftist Insanity and Hatred Causes Loss of Friends

One of my FaceBook friends – a person I have known for more than 40 years – (SRH) posted a link to ZEIT ONLINE (http://www.zeit.de/wissen/geschichte/2017-02/adolf-hitler-chancellor-appointment-anniversary/seite-3)   Herein she makes allegations that Trump is much like Hitler, who supposedly would “grow more reasonable once in office and his cabinet would tame him”.  Die Zeit (The Time) is a German highbrow mostly center/left weekly newspaper.  Once in a great while it will publish a center-right article. This is the followup conversation to her post: ME           You should study about what and who REAL Nazis were (and are). Trump is a bit of an … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

Above all, a knight needs three things: A God to serve, A King to obey, and a Lady to protect from all who would harm her. At any hour, day or night, he must be ready….” Ignatius of Loyola Founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) And while Inigo was talking about a Lady in the classical sense, there is nothing that cannot bring that “lady” into the present and call her Liberty, or America.

Quote of the Day

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches Don’t like the man, never liked the man.  His colour had nothing to do with that, his actions did.  However, no matter who, some things are right, and as he says this, he is right.

Quote of the Day

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.” ― Elie Wiesel When we no longer care, then we no longer hate.  That is a relief to our soul, and an intolerable burden on the souls of those who remain hating us.

Quote of the Day

“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.” C. JoyBell C. I know it’s hard, but don’t hate those who hate this country.  Otherwise you can never get rid of them.  From the country or from your heart.

Quote of the Day

“In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them…. I destroy them.” ― Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game This is why we must (a) love our enemies and (b) understand what makes them tick.  Until then, we can never destroy those who hate us and our country.
