History is informative.... and fallible, why, because it is written about humanity by humans with varying points of view giving varying interpretations...I love reading histories but I always keep in mind that, again, it is fallible!!
I love this post...humor always brings home a point so succinctly...and I can so relate to everything you wrote Anne. Thanks for my chuckle for the day!!!!! And the comments were just icing on the cake....laughter is such good medicine!!!!
I am one who totally agrees with this post. In fact, when I go to movies, which is rare now because for the most part all of Hollywood is liberal and their message leaves me cold, hopeless and dispirited,. That said, when I do go to movies and it is based on an actual event, I ALWAYS research the actual event so I have the correct facts and my head stays squarely on my shoulders. Case in point is Argo...if you stayed to read the credits, which I like to do, you will see close to the very end of the credits a sentence stating that the movie is LOOSELY based on the actual facts. And they could not have been more truthful. But, it is Hollywoods slant on facts and in my mind more fiction than fact. So, yes, Anne, I agree with your analysis of Hollywood and their attempt, successfully , to permeate our society young and old with their ideologies.
Side note to the question but...this is just another layer of Government ...I am sure there are people working in the government that are doing this job now or should be doing this job...aren't we suppose to be streamlining Government? Too many bureaucratic levels, layers and committees...why is the solution just another agency! It's an administrative nightmare!
Fascinating, mesmerizing and absolutely beautiful
Great to read an article like this FINALLY bringing to light, as you have Anne, the comparison and contrasts of Obama's responses to the Arab Spring revolutions. I would love to see this message reach many, many outlets and people...it NEEDS to be read and understood!!!!!
Really excellent article..I can relate whole heartedly with all that was said in this well written, well thought out and passionate article. Makes you feel good that there are others trying to fight the "good fight" to save America and its founding ideologies. I grew up with the strong principles of our founding....work hard, be honorable at home and at work, cherish family and friends and think about others in our society not just yourself and on and on but ever so slowing over the many years this ideology has changed and shifted and its time to have this Renaissance if just for the fact that human kind and mankind NEED it. We NEED to go back to selfless leadership and believing in the GOODNESS of America and its people. And to do that we need to continue to express our thoughts, as you did in this great article, and get it out in the public domain!!! Thank you Anne!!!
Well said Romney...I applaud putting this controversial issue "out there". I strongly believe the strength of a great society lies in the fabric of a strong family foundation. So much can grow from that foundation through our children which can only be beneficial for society. It's upsetting to see that non traditional forms of family are worn a badge of honor rather than a unfortunate and unhappy circumstance. To re-educate young people on the importance of family values is a starting point. I do see evidence that the trend towards traditional family values is resurging with many of our young adults, so to have a leader exemplifying that too would be great.
I'll grant I don't have as extensive of a foreign policy knowledge or comprehension as all the above contributors BUT as a layman, to see and read about all the human rights atrocities in Syria, North Korea, Iran to name a few followed by inaction and lack of leadership from both Hillary Clinton our Secretary of State and Barack Obama our President is heartrending, abysmal and embarrassing for our Nation...it seems to me it is all politics with NO, I repeat, NO consideration for human rights, period.
There maybe little we can do BUT I am glad someone is bringing attention to the appalling situation in Syria. These are human beings , for God's sake...we all should be aware of what is going on there...hopefully by keeping attention on the situation, somewhere down the road this attention might have an impact on sanctions, UN etc. Should we just bury our heads in the sand as was done during WWII in Germany...NO!!!
