To sleep, perchance to dream.

January 20th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in ramblings

In my joy for Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts there is also a cloud of sadness.  Robert Parker, author of the ‘Spenser’ series of books that were later translated to the small screen in the show “Spenser for Hire” passed away yesterday in his home of an apparent heart attack.

I grew up reading the Spenser books.  Spenser reminded me of my dad; tough but sensitive in the right ways.  Thoughtful but never with the need to really explain his position because he knew the rightness of himself.  Spenser helped me actually learn about my dad in many ways.  My dad gave me the example of how to live and Spenser helped explain it.

My heart goes out to his wife Joan.  To have been with someone for so long and then to have them not there.  God bless and keep her at this time.

Strangely enough, I had just finished his Jessie Stone book “Night and Day” the same day he passed away.  I will miss the adventures of Jessie, Spenser and Sunny, but not as much as Joan will miss the man who loved her above all else.

God bless you Robert, and you as well Joan.

Saw this at Brutally Honest and you should really read it.  Seriously, go now!

Despite what Michael Moore implied in his film “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Congress did not base their 2002 authorization for the Iraq War solely on the premise that Saddam Hussein either had or was trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction. Their legislation reads very clearly that America’s purpose in sending troops back to Iraq was to enforce U.N. resolutions, some of which were violated in the 1990’s and probably should have been enforced by President Clinton. Whether actual weapons were found or not, the war in Iraq was legally and morally justifiable, and necessary.

In addition to enduring criticism for his war policies, millions of Americans demanded the new Obama administration prosecute Bush for his decision to indefinitely holding detainees charged with war crimes. When President Obama signed an executive order in May that reinforced that same Bush policy, the far left was mute.

Good stuff, all of it.

Wow, what an anniversary present

Well, today is the one year anniversary for TEH WON being in office, and what did the people of Massachusetts give him as a gift??  Scott Brown and his pickup truck, that’s what!

Seriously, I’ve been reading and hearing Democrats say “Oh, this isn’t about Obama at all.  The voters are just mad at anyone who is in office right now.”  Really??  Did you see the crowd at his rallies as compared to what Obama drew when he went down there to stump for Coakley?

The people are mad alright, they are mad at a government that has forgotten that they are there to represent US.  The people are mad at a federal government that forgets that it was formed by an agreement between the states, not the other way around.

Blame Bush didn’t work.  Calling us Teabaggers didn’t work.  All the mud thrown by Olbermann and the rest of the left didn’t work.  And now that it’s over the left has gone onto the next stage they always do when they don’t get what they want – they pout, they scream and they cry.  The pathetic attitudes of the left are on full display.

Congratulations, Mr Brown.  I hope you will always remember that it is indeed ‘The peoples seat” and will help bring some honor, humility, and decency back to the Senate for BOTH sides of the aisle.
