Honorable Historians Don’t Make $1.8 Million as a “Historian” for Freddie Mac


The reality of being a politician and being pure do not go hand-in-hand, historically.  However, we do insist that candidates for President of the United States be men of honor.  With the fall from grace of the latest GOP flavor of the month, Newt Gingrich‘s campaign has been resurrected from the dead and has begun a feeding fest of disgorging the sullied past of Mr. Gingrich.  I am sure you are keeping up with the revelations and are quietly making your judgments.  So far, from what you are learning, does Newt Gingrich meet the definition of “honor” which comes from Websters Dictionary?

Definition of HONOR

1a : good name or public esteem : reputation b : a showing of usually merited respect : recognition <pay honor to our founder>
2: privilege <had the honor of joining the captain for dinner>
3: a person of superior standing —now used especially as a title for a holder of high office <if Your Honor please>
4: one whose worth brings respect or fame : credit <an honor to the profession>
5: the center point of the upper half of an armorial escutcheon
6: an evidence or symbol of distinction: as a : an exalted title or rank b (1) : badge, decoration (2) : a ceremonial rite or observance <buried with full military honors> c : an award in a contest or field of competition d archaic : a gesture of deference : bow e plural (1) : an academic distinction conferred on a superior student (2) : a course of study for superior students supplementing or replacing a regular course
7: chastity, purity <fought fiercely for her honor and her life — Barton Black>
8a : a keen sense of ethical conduct : integrity <a man of honor> b : one’s word given as a guarantee of performance <on my honor, I will be there>
The Republicans will continue their primary process of seeking the non-Mitt candidate. The current surge for Newt Gingrich is an anomaly, the fruit of desperation. It will live its course. Mitt Romney may have his negatives, but, one can manage to respect him.  Can one say that about Newt Gingrich?

God Bless the US Congress!


Heavenly Father, the 112th Congress has begun a perilous journey in governing the land. Please bless them with insight, wisdom and cautious daring.  Make their term one of success and fruitfulness for the American people.”

Father, I made that prayer at the present, Congress began the year.  Regrettably, You did not bless this our, “Turkey Congress.”  Please, God, bless our legislators with a bang-up end to 2011 with a flurry of legislation beginning with passage of the American Jobs Act and continuing with bills which improve the economy and our social condition.  Is it really your will that the 112th Congress go down in history as our “Worst Congress Ever?”  Think not of their questionable merit and think of us as the one country who works for the most good for all who love democracy.  Give us the laws, the tools, to do our work and to maintain our global benevolent dominance.  Thank you, Lord.

Does Congress Give Us Hope?

Advocates for unemployed expect Congress will approve extended benefits
By Vicki Needham

“Advocates are optimistic Congress will extend federal unemployment benefits before the end of the year despite the supercommittee’s failure.

A supercommittee package had been seen as the most likely vehicle for the unemployment benefits scheduled to expire at the end of the year.

A package would have represented a compromise between Republicans seeking to cut spending and Democrats who wanted to provide some stimulus for the economy.

After the Thanksgiving break, Congress will have only three weeks to reach a deal before it recesses for the year, leaving little time to find a new vehicle.”
