A hummingbird’s morning, high in the agave, now in full flower. What can we say of this so-called century plant? It lives long, blossoms once in miraculous form, and dies. A Sunday meditation for us all.
Mortal life is transitory, beauty is life’s gift to the world, and hummingbirds have to eat…
Many metaphors can be drawn.
The Press Never Reports This:
I had experience in Afghanistan before it was cool, back when Zahir Shah was king – yeah almost back when dinosaurs roamed the area, which kind of describes me. Things didn’t go that well up in the Vakan Pass, but that’s not the point.
I learned firsthand that somewhere approaching 100% of all Afghans had tuberculosis. I didn’t contract it (who knows why?), but all of the locals were sick.
Tuberculosis can be treated but once you have it, you always have it. Stand by for a TB problem in America.
We went from a dependable president to one who wears depends.
The Biden Regime
We’re stuck with it whether we want it or not and sadly, America has a short memory when it comes to creeps in government.
Benghazi was one of those enduring legacies of the Obama term in office and this crisis we now face in Afghanistan, which will reverberate over the years is the same thing, managed by the return of the same people who functioned to bring you the ObamaNation – 8 miserable years.
I’ve had phone calls from people outraged who scream at me, “what can we do?” My answer is inevitably, we do what we are able to do. No no more and no less. That is the Sunday Sermonette for the day and it may ring hollow to some of you. Whether or not the election was rigged, and I think that it was, the Deep State won an amazing victory and the legislature is voting trillions of dollars in bullshit that will sustain them for a long time to come.
There are a lot of good people who do good things every day. There is a lot to be thankful for despite the trainwreck inside the Washington DC Beltway. I can’t imagine being in government during this woke era.
Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller, USMC posted a video to Facebook Thursday in which he asked senior civilian and military leadership to own up to mistakes they made in the course of the withdrawal in Afghanistan. The Facebook post came after it had been confirmed that a number of Marines were among those killed in the suicide bomb in Kabul. Scheller said one of the Marines killed was someone close to him.
“People are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting responsibility and saying we messed this up,” Scheller said in the video.
There are not enough LTC Stuart Schellers. He was relieved of command and will be leaving the US Marine Corps, unfortunately when we need him most.
Biden Falls Asleep
President Trump once dubbed then-candidate Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe,” and it seems that Biden is working hard to live down to that well-earned nickname.
In fact, it appears that Biden is quite literally sleeping during an on-camera White House meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Or is he just resting his eyes?
You have to feel for Bennett. The poor man is so sincere and trying so hard to communicate . . . with a snoozing, twitching Biden.
As it dawns on him that Biden is asleep—and to his credit—Bennett turns to address his comments to the press. Perhaps he is trying to limit the embarrassment and humiliation of doddering and clearly unfit Sleepy Joe, hoping that the cameras will switch to focus to his comments rather than focus on the snoozing leader of the free world?
Somebody needs to take charge and put Creepy/Sleepy Joe down for his nap. Maybe Susan Rice or Barack Obama because they’ve taken so much of the White House responsibilities. Give him his warm milk and his circus cookies.
The Obama legacy is fully in evidence in the economy:
See, you NEVER screwed up anything that badly — cheer up.
Wet and Dry Counties in Arkansas
You may ask yourself why this is included in a sermonette, but the dry county designation almost always relates to religion.
