Random Thoughts on a Crisp Fall Morning

The army missed it's recruiting goal by nearly 10% for this year and is closing the books on the leanest year since the switch to an all-volunteer force. That can't be good news for the War Party. With insurgencies raging in Afghanistan and Iraq, the military is already stretched dangerously thin. And that's before you toss in the possibility of an invasion of Iran.

Meanwhile, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., who oversees U.S. forces in Iraq, told congress that just one of Iraq's eighty-six batallions can fight insurgents without American help. But don't worry, says General Casey, after all "what's really important is the fact that the Iraqis are at 98 percent registered to participate in the referendum, in the elections."

Even John "Dr. Strangelove" McCain had harsh criticism. McCain chastised Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for being overly optimistic because "things have not gone as we had planned or expected nor as we were told by you, General Myers."

Well, Senator, things are going as any rational person expected.

Here is more on Richard Land's continuing fascination with "American Exceptionalism." In an interview with Baptist Press, Land said his concern with international affairs stems from Baptist principles, as articulated in the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message. "My point of departure is the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message article on 'The Christian and the Social Order,'" Land said in an interview. "... We have a call to be salt and light not just in American society but in human society." Go ahead, read the the Faith and Message yourself and see if you can figure out what he is talking about.

Good to see that life is returning to normal in New Orleans.

Rick Santorum was right! The legitimizing of homosexual unions will invariably lead to legal protection for every sort of perversion. In Holland, polygamy has now been endorsed. The husband in this arrangement says they want to take their obligations seriously, "to be honest and open with each other and not philander." Hope they don't add a dog to this arrangement.
