Back from an enforced break

First of all, an apology to the vast hordes who read the blog (I think that is somewhere between 3 and 5 people) for the long computer developed a severe personality disorder and refused to show any video. No idea was serviced, nothing was found, and it's been working fine ever doubt it is Bush's fault.

Anyway, I came across this from Mr Charles Krauthammer, and as usual, am stunned by his ability to cut to the quick. The link after the video seems not to work, so here is an essay of the full speech.
What more can be said. Our leaders seem to be comfortable taking us on a course that can only lead us away from the greatness that we have enjoyed for many, many years. Personally, I think this country is the greatest country in history. We are not perfect, nor will we ever be so, since we are a human creation. But we are the best that has ever been seen, delivering freedom from oppression to countless millions, and giving our own citizens a level of freedom that has never been seen before. And that level of freedom has led to a prosperity unmatched anywhere in the world. But we seem to be intent on throwing all of it away, instead using as a new goal some sort of socialist plan. Look at history; look at the past and what it tells us. Every time, EVERY TIME that this has been tried, it fails miserably. The inevitable outcome is an equality of misery for all except for those in power.

Have a great weekend...more later if I can collect my thoughts after collecting my fallen leaves.

As one of your hordes of readers, I had waited patiently, and as they say, good things are worth waiting for. And reporting on Charles' spot on comments was well worth the wait; :-)

This is the kind of thing we need to RESTART teaching in schools. America's Greatness! If our children don't believe and understand why we are the Greatest Nation in history, we will be doomed. Already, since they stopped teaching such values in the 60s and 70s, we see the deterioration of our nation's principles.
