More Perspective

Some perspective....first is from our very own Voice, who sent this to me in an email earlier this year. And then another piece from THE RIGHT SCALE, good blogsite check it out . Both calmly recite W's outstanding achievements in the face of tremendous adversity from both abroad and at home. Contrast these with the shrill hysterics the loony-left has subjected all of us to, for well over a year now -SpinDaddy

"... I am not sure whether or not this actually appeared in a paper, but the facts are pretty accurate and true. These are GREAT points.


The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper as a letter to the editor. Please forward to all on your list as this will put things in perspective:Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. They complain about his prosecution of it. One liberal recently claimed Bush was the worst president in U.S. history. Let's clear up one point: We didn't start the war on terror. Try to remember, it was started by terrorists - BEFORE 9/11.

Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims. [Liberal Icon] FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.

From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us.

From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never attacked us.

He [Clinton] was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Lybia, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people. We lost 600 soldiers. Bush did all this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home. Worst president in history? Come on!

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records. [Let me refresh your memory, these records were under subpoena for at least two years, then mysteriously materialized on a dresser in the most secure residence in the entire world, the White House -Spin]

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Teddy Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

Our President is GREAT and so is our military! PASS IT ON...."

Insanity by the Numbers

Dick McDonald

My friends and some of the other variety are absolutely victims of immateriality. Deaths in Iraq, deficits, stolen munitions, draft, economic malaise, and others. Moms are worried, the economy is a disaster and as the Manhattan elite put it, "If Bush wins, the world as we know it will end".

Well I have never seen such insignificant and immaterial numbers be blown into such world shattering proportions.

Stolen Munitions. Wow, 380 tons of munitions at 1 munition dump 20 miles south of Baghdad are missing. Forget the fact that these munitions went missing before our troops captured that dump. What's 380 out of the 400,000 tons already recovered at 1 dump out of 10,000 dumps already identified. Paul Bremer says that Saddam purchased almost 1,000,000 tons of munitions, mostly from France, China and Germany. Now, John Kerry calls for Bush's scalp for the 380 tons. Numerically brain-dead.

Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wow, we have conducted and won two wars and lost less than 300 soldiers in the hot portion of those wars. Apparently the hand-wringers are in a catatonic fit about it. Forget that we lost 58,000 in Vietnam, 50,000 in Korea and 300,000 in WWII.
It goes to show that if the NYT has the immaterial and insignificant to blow into a worldwide controversy, they will lie, deceive and omit the issue to their anti-American end.

Deficits. Conservatives are wild about Bush's failure to veto any spending bill in his first term. Discarding the issue that the legislature only asked him to sign what Bush had previously approved, the importance of this particular deficit is totally immaterial and insignificant. Americans GDP is running at $11.7 Trillion this year. A $415 Billion deficit is just about 4% thereof. Now with a war, stock-market bubble bursting, recession-fighting, accounting scandals, tax cuts, etc., please give me a break. Has it driven up interest rates? No. This deficit is immaterial and insignificant. And have you forgotten that the net worth of households and non-profit orgs is running at an annual increase of $3.2 Trillion.

Draft. Why a draft? There is no reason. Just a scare tactic by the Democrat scoundrels.[The only proposals for a draft in Congress, came from Dems -Spin] Why have 400,000 boots on the ground. We won the Afghan war with less than 10,000. And in many cases major encounters were won with air power and small special ops troops. We are now in the era of digital wars. Our capabilities are so sophisticated that no one left Baghdad even though we were bombing day and night. Adults should look at the numbers and get real.

The Economy. John Kerry says the economy is a mess. Gee, A third of every dollar spent in the world ends up in an American's bank account. What a mess? What a greedy ingrate this Lurch is. He has no executive experience. No concept of the job he is a pretender for. Elevating him to Commander in Chief is tantamount to putting a bus driver in charge of Harvard. His managerial skill is questionable, suspect and untested. Unemployment at 5.4%. Wow. Best percentage in 20 years. Kerry's Hoover comparison is mindless.Too bad the LDO Demomedia spins these issues in Kerry's favor. Our democracy doesn't exist as long as this disparity continues.posted by DICK MCDONALD
