You *are* idealistic. But, to carry on with one’s ideals in the face of opposition (dare I say, ‘defiance?’), pervasive cynicism and condescension is not naïve. It is noble. Don’t you go changing.’

Matthew Krappman

Ditto Paully. Well put.

That's what made me fall in love with you.


Wow! came by at the recommend of The Uncle. His advice has always been good, it was excellent in here. God bless you and your "men." You get added to my blogroll and prayer book. Thank you for your service

Idealistic is a compliment. Have a look at the back of a One Dollar bill: Note that the eagle has an olive branch in one talon and a set of thirteen arrows in the other. That is a good example of idealism alloyed with realism.

Bewt to you and yours. I will echo the sentiments of others before me and add you to my prayer list and daily reads as well.

Amazing. Up to a few years ago I too wondered whether our military was up to it. (civilian dope, that's me). No more doubts.
Came over from Jason Van Steenwyk's site 'Countercolumn', will be back.
Be safe, not sorry.
Bless, and thank you.

Hey Young'un,

Never be afraid or ashamed to show your true feelings. They are what makes you what you are.

If someone does'nt like it or snickers, Just say in a low firm voice:

"But for the grace of God and the men and women who have fought and died under Ol' Glory's colors, we wouldn't be here or if we were we would not be free".
