If we forget our past, we are doomed to repeat it . . .

This phrase rings true today as well as any day in history. May we never forget those Americans that served in the US Military on that infamous day. To the brave men and women who serve and protect this Nation, we owe you a debt of gratitude that we can never repay. Thanking you for your service seems to ring hollow, but I do thank you for all of your sacrifices!



This blog is dedicated to Willis Tom Bradshaw Sea2C who gave his life on the USS Juneau on November 13, 1942 in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. My oldest brother and sister lost their father that day. It was by brothers fifth birthday. May we never forget that evil exists in this world and we must always be prepared to face it head on. God Bless America!

I have stated this before. If we were challenged to the degree we were in December of '41, we wouldn't have a chance. We are so badly at each others' throats and the liberal wash-down has destroyed our moral compass so completely, we'd never be able to achieve what we did then.

Sure ... we'll repeat some aspect of our WWII history. It just won't quite come out in our favor.

Unless ...

I agree with RWL - we've lost our national will and purpose.

Compare BO, who can't commit to defeating a caveman-like enemy in Afghanistan to FDR who prosecuted a world war and suffered horrific losses. For all of his warts, and they were many, FDR understood what was at stake. BO hasn't a clue.

Mark Levin had a brilliant monologue a couple of weeks ago comparing BO's decision to try the Gitmo boys in federal courts to FDR's handling of the Nazis caught on US soil who were tried by a military tribunal and quickly executed.

I have another thing to add, we have lost all sense of pride! May God have mercy on us for our slothfulness! VN8
