Happy Birthday to The Scout:
The Scout is still in Arkansas with all his sibs (five kids total in Scout’s family). Today they are discussing future plans with The Scout’s mom, Meg. A guy who is a specialist in later-in-life issues will be there to facilitate (happens to be a pastor in the church The Scout’s parents attend).
Meg has some short-term memory loss. The Scout’s dad handled all the finances and did all the driving. The house is in a beautiful place, overlooking a lake, ten miles from everything. So there’s lots to talk about.
Update on my Mom: She’s still in the hospital, getting better slowly. Trying to get the meds right is tricky.
Matt Carmichael is going back to Iraq. Here’s Matt and Grace (both friends from high school). Matt is a helicopter pilot. He’s been in the military for 31 years.
Take care of yourself, Matt.
Got an e-mail this morning. It contained a long list of terrorist acts perpetrated by Muslim extremists. Then at the end it said:
According to The Book of The Revelations (sic):
The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal ….the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power he will destroy everything.
For the award winning Act of Stupidity Of all times the People of America want to elect, to the most Powerful position on the face of the Planet — The Presidency of the United states of America … A Male of Muslim descent who is the most extremely liberal Senator in Congress (in other words an extremist) and in his 40s.
Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason ???
I’m sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the ‘unknown’ candidate Obama…
Let’s send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds (sic) and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves — if they have any such sense.
As the writer of the award winning story ‘Forrest Gump’ so aptly put it, ‘Stupid Is As Stupid Does’
Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet…do it! over and over again…just delete if you disagree.
Sorry, I’m not gonna just delete if I disagree. This is low, hateful fear-mongering of the worst variety. This is playground meanie name-calling that has nothing to do with the real content or issues of the upcoming election. To even suggest that the Bible indicates that Barack Obama is the Anti-Christ is just plain dumb.
Roland Martin points out that Sarah Palin is all fired up about Barack Obama’s terrorist ties, but doesn’t seem to realize that she herself was called on the carpet for violating Alaska’s ethics act.
