An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

A rare advisory for U.S. travelers to beware of potential terrorist threats in Europe drew American shrugs Sunday from Paris to Rome, but tourism officials worried that it could deter would-be visitors from moving ahead with plans to cross the Atlantic.
The travel alert is a step below a formal warning not to visit Europe, but some experts said it could still hurt a fragile European economy already hit hard by the debt crisis.
“I think if someone was looking for an excuse not to travel, then this is just the ticket,” said George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.com. “However, I don’t think most people will alter their plans unless the threat is very specific.”
Personally, I think a lot of dead Americans would be even worse for Europe’s economy!
I have learned something new today. Just because you are heading west, and turn left, it doesn’t mean that you will be going south. Don’t ask! Heh.
As always, when I go anywhere, I am the consummate tourist! Ok, let’s face it! I’m downright nosey! Gotta see what I can see! I lived in Virginia for quite a few years, and saw quite a bit of the state, but I had never been to Manassas. Well, since I was driving right through it, I didn’t see the harm in turning left off the U.S. highway to snoop a bit. I mean, after all, it was there, I was there….why not! And me, being me, had to take a few pictures. (click to embiggen)
Claiming to have matched the 8/28 rally? Well, I think the socialists need to learn how to count. Public education hard at work. Pfft!
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Being Christian, I know I’m suppose to love my enemy. But how am I suppose to love evil?
And make no mistake….socialism and communism is evil! The thought that there are fellow Americans who would prefer a system of government that has murdered hundreds of millions of human beings! I never thought there was such hate in my country, or perhaps I didn’t want to believe it. Yes, sometimes, I can be rather naive, wanting to believe the best of people.
These people claim to love America. Does this look like love to you? I pray God will forgive me, but I can find no love in my heart for such people, but I will continue to pray for them.
