An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of one of the founders of the Hamas terrorist organization and author of the book “Son of Hamas,” said on Friday that Israel made a mistake by agreeing to a ceasefire with Gaza’s terrorist rulers.
As much as I’d love to see peace in the Middle East, I know it’s not going to happen. How do I know? Because I take God at His Word, that’s how!
Yousef has spent a number of years abroad following a decade in which he risked his life working undercover as an agent for the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet). His code name during that time was ‘The Green Prince.’
Very brave dude!!
Yeah… easier said than done. It’s hard to do considering recent events, but like this author said, at least we retained the House, where all spending bills originate. Hmmm… You’d think it the last 2 years, the House might have done something to curb the spending. They hold the purse strings, they can cut off spending for a lot of the czars and czarinas… like all those alphabets that stifle business with their regulations. Just a thought.
And as usual for this time of year, we see more attacks on traditions that have brought communities together for the CHRISTmas season. I suppose we should be thankful that we have any traditions left in this country.
We’re told faith and politics don’t mix. I’d say they are dead wrong. A nation that turns to God, is a very successful nation, as a whole. A nation that removes God, eventually sees its decline. Oh yeah…we’re seeing that decline, on a daily basis.
I am thankful for my God, my family, and my friends, including those who have stuck with me for the last couple of years. I am not thankful for a government that has become a budding dictatorship.
Reasons for Conservatives to Be Thankful
There are plenty of things to be thankful for this week, and this year as well.
Yes, after our country’s recent elections, big government remains the rule here in the United States and throughout the West. Yet the language used by the candidates (both talked of reducing federal spending and creating jobs, for example) and the closeness of the race proved that, in the U.S. at least, conservatism remains a powerful force.
Conservative thinkers present a compelling, principled alternative to liberal ideas. Right-leaning politicians retained control of the House of Representatives, where they’ll control all spending bills and be able to push back against the expansion of government. Conservative governors will run 30 states and can use their offices to thwart federal overreach. Many governors, for example, have already announced they won’t set up Obamacare insurance exchanges, which will save the states money and may doom the entire federal power grab.
Rather than despair, conservatives should use this holiday season to count our blessings, review our plans, and further our agenda in 2013.
