WOW! Life is interesting sometimes. Keeps us on our toes dealing with what each day throws at us. First off I want to say to my friend Doug I am praying for you and your family. I hope your Dad can come through this chemo with flying colors. Good luck my friend!
Next I want to let all my friends and Church family know how much Janet and I appreciate the cards, food and prayers since Janet (my wife) broke both her arms two weeks past. Yes, she did. A sudden fall and life changed drastically for us. Fortunately her bones will mend and she will be back in action in a couple of months. It has been a challenge but not one we can't overcome.
Now on to the news of the day.
I just read where Nancy Pelosi has asked the President to release oil from our petroleum reserves to help bring down the price of crude oil in America so that our gasoline prices can also go down. I know crazy Aunt Nancy is not the sharpest drill bit in the pack but does she even realize that she is admitting that if we had access to more oil that gas prices would go down, yet she and her fellow Democrats will not allow us to go after and use our own natural resources here in America.
We have more oil reserves in our country than all of Saudi Arabia and possibly the entire middle east if you combine Alaska, both continental shelves, all of the gulf and the oil shale and tar sands of the mid west. Unfortunately our highly esteemed (9% approval ratings) Democrat Congress will not open up any of this for exploration or drilling so we will have to sit and wait for the country to wise up and elect Republicans back to the Congress so we can have a common sense energy policy.
On another note:
I was thinking about the wildfires in California just yesterday. The wacky liberals in that state keep re-electing the same nut jobs to the legislator who will not allow logging companies to go into these forest lands and clean out the undergrowth and dead wood. They will not even allow home owners to clear out dead wood and undergrowth on their own properties. This stuff fuels these fires and makes them burn uncontrollably. This in turn destroys peoples homes and lives as well as pumping millions of tons of carbon into the air, the stuff the left is blaming global warming on. So it is pretty obvious that the libs out in California hate your SUV's and air conditioning but do not have enough sense to pass legislation to really do anything to help stop global warming when it comes to these fires.
Is is a law you have to be an idiot to be a politician or does it just work out that way in California due to the public school system?
By the way, I have read allot of good news coming out of Iraq lately. Looks like General Petraeus has really worked wonders in that battle field. We have nearly wiped out Al Qeada in Iraq. I hope he turns his sites towards Afghanistan next.
God Bless him and all our troops for doing a great job and defending our freedoms from radical Islamic nutcases.
Seems like we live in an alternate universe sometimes when it comes to politics.
I could be wrong.
What do you think.
