Indeed.

A friend forwarded this to me, provenance unknown, but I don’t care.  Agree with it exactly.

(BTW, when I run across things like this, I now have a nearly autonomic impulse to share with my Ratburghers.)

The quote:

An interesting perspective from the mother of a fallen Seal.

Comment from KAREN VAUGHN Mother of Navy Chief Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal, killed in Action.

 

“Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn’t mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn’t even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he’s necessary for such a time as this.

I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House and gave this nation one more chance in November 2016. Donald Trump is what he is. He is still the man he was before the election. And without guilt, I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

He’s not like me. That’s okay with me. I don’t want to be like him. I will never behave like him. I know we’ve NEVER had a man like him lead our nation. It’s crazy and a little mind blowing at times. But I can’t help admire the ability he has to act with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he’s been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

I’m THRILLED with what he’s doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn’t matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST. I will not be ashamed of my position because others don’t see him through the same lens.

Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he’s pulling me from a burning building? Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments? Heck no! I’d CARE about what he was DOING. He wasn’t sent there to save my soul and I’m not looking to him for spiritual guidance. All I’m thinking in those moments is, “Thank you, Jesus, for sending the fireman.”

I’ll post this article below again for those who still might not understand me.

This man is crass. Okay. He’s not careful with what he says. Okay. You feel offended that he’s not a typical statesman. Okay. But he is rebuilding the nation my son died for…the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.

Forgive me if I’m smiling.”

Kurt, The Hammer, Schlichter

Kurt is always a smart and fun read, but today he was coffee-spitting fabulous!  Here’s three quotes and a link to the whole thing.  It’s ironic to have this much fun over such a sad and Satanic episode involving our betters, I know.

(This is a welcome side show to the unraveling of ObamaGate; Rice, Priestap, et. al.)

“Just think of it! The ability to simply make all those Normals who disagree with you go away – either for good or by exiling them to rural fun camps. No fuss, no muss, no more tiresome dissent by those banjo-jockies between the coasts!”

“This stuff about Trump and the Russians, the same Russians who couldn’t sit down during the Cold War without checking to make sure they weren’t going to crush a Democrat’s head, was always a joke.”

“Thank our Creator that we live in America, and that our Founders thought, `You know, there’s a chance that really evil and/or stupid people could take over sometime, so let’s figure out a way to make sure that the Normals can fight back. In fact, let’s give it its very own amendment.'”

MAGA, and all that jazz!

Mollie is Elated

Mollie Hemingway wrote in the Washington Post. Take a read. (H/T Instapundit.com)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/i-wasnt-a-trump-supporter-i-am-now/2018/01/19/58abd43a-fca2-11e7-a46b-a3614530bd87_story.html?utm_term=.e836d4a98e1e

 

My expectations were low — so low that he could have met them by simply not being President Hillary Clinton. But a year into this presidency, he’s exceeded those expectations by quite a bit. I’m thrilled.

I hold Mollie in high regard. She is at thefederalist.com and that site has had great growth from her leadership. (Another site went downhill without her.) I often see her on Fox News.

TOTD 2018/1/19: Proverb

17 Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Pr 27:17). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

 

We often hear about “more friction than light” as something negative but friction has its benefits. It sharpens people. It gets rid of the rough edges. Don’t you find that people who can’t take some push back to be dull?
