"Decline Is a Choice - The New Liberalism and the end of American ascendancy." by Charles Krauthammer 10/19/2009, Volume 015, Issue 05
"The effect on the dollar is already being felt and could ultimately lead to a catastrophic collapse and/or hyperinflation. Having control of the world's reserve currency is an irreplaceable national asset. Yet with every new and growing estimate of the explosion of the national debt, there are more voices calling for replacement of the dollar as the world currency--not just adversaries like Russia and China, Iran and Venezuela, which one would expect, but just last month the head of the World Bank."

Holy Cow! what is happening to our country that we can't even have a choice now of who we watch that the White House communication's director can take potshots at any news network. It's one thing for the news network to compete and put out their own opinions, but another thing for the White House. Perhaps the White House staff and czars, et al, need to go back to school and learn how to read the constitution and try to understand we do have choice in this country.
I am fearful, however, that this president and his followers are trying to take our privileges of freedom away.

My first stop when reading the Sunday paper is the Viewpoint section and Charles Krauthammer's column. I found this morning's column as interesting as any other of his opinions, but I thought I would share this one here today.
It has to do with the decision President Obama must make regarding sending troops to Afghanistan. If you have any family member or friend in the military, I am sure you are very interested to know what the president will decide to do. I am disappointed that it is taking the president so long to make up his mind. As you will read in Mr. Krauthammer's column, this wasn't something that just came up and the president needed more time to think. I am sure President Obama has to check with everyone of his monetary supporters to see what they think, I wish he would go with his guy. I know he and Michelle have pledge support to the military families, but you can't put off making decisions while soldiers are dying.
I hope you will find Charles Krauthammer's column as enlightening and informative as I did. You may find it here.

Personally, I find President Obama's behavior disgraceful as per the other story I just browsed on the Drudgereport page here of President and Mrs Obama going out and celebrating their 17th anniversary while we have troops dying in Afghanistan and the President can't make up his mind what to do. I think maybe he has made up his mind, but isn't sharing the news with the American people. I have been married 45 years, and I can tell you, honestly, if I had a sick child, parent, or there was a major problem in my family, there wouldn't be any going out to celebrate anything. My marriage is not based on when and where we go out to dinner but to take care of the business of the problems at hand in my family. And, I expect the same thing of my President. Surely, his chefs could have come up with something extra special for a sweet and simple twosome dinner for he and Michelle rather than having to parade all over Washington. I imagine the troops in Afghanistan would appreciate some of that R&R too.
It's makes me so sad. The news articles are saying this is the largest death count in 10 years. Don't you know if Bush would be in office right now people would be up in arms and we would hear screaming and hollering from the Democrats.
I pray that God will PLEASE give President the common sense and wisdom to make a good decision for our country and our troops first and foremost. He needs to get out of Himself and get some humility and serve the United States of America.
