Well, here’s your power team for 2011, 112th Congress, US Senate: Senator Harry Reid, Majority Leader, Senator Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader;US House of Representatives: Rep. John Boehner, Speaker and Rep. Eric Cantor, Majority Leader.
Rumor has it that one person on the team plans more obstruction like during the first two years of the Obama Administration. Let us pray that this was idle gossip. Our holiday prayers should include blessings for these men who will guide the ship of the Nation in 2011. May they be given insight and a willingness to compromise on issues letting the ultimate good win out! Let the press of egos be a thing of the past. May they be given the stamina to work throughout the year like they are doing in the “lame-duck.” 🙂 They are working their tail feathers off!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO THE US CONGRESS!
Today President Obama will sign the Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The Administration will not admit it, but “no one has been separated from the military since the fall.” [Said a pundit.] The general public AND GAYS IN THE MILITARY are cautioned that it will take months for this civil right to be fully realized. The powers that be think that our rough and tough military need to be gently moved into social change. Hooey! But, it is what it is. Personally, I think that we train our marines, e.g., to be more heroic fighters that are not easily distracted by a gay fellow soldier. Social change in America is gradual. Before we know it, we’ll remark later, all gay men and women in the military will have come out of the closet. The beauty of it all is that they will be judged and respected for their character and abilities to perform assigned duties. They will advance in rank on merit. GOD BLESS THE USA!
