The right thing to do.

If any other president would be in power and in command of our troops, I'd also stand by him.
It is the right thing to do. I will explain on my next post why.

American are blaming their President for the country's tarnished image on the world stage, writes Michael Gawenda.

Stress shows George Bush has aged visibly since the start of the war.
Photo: Reuters
AMERICA is at war.
This is a wartime national security strategy required by the grave challenges we face This strategy reflects our most solemn obligation: to protect the security of the American people.'
George Bush, on the third anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, now looks and sounds like a president who goes to bed at night and wakes wondering whether, in the face of yet another crisis in Iraq - more sectarian violence, more atrocities, more dead US soldiers - the patience he has asked for from Americans will be forthcoming.
The Bush swagger - that strange stiff-shouldered walk, chest out, arms by his side - is now rarely seen. Bush looks more gaunt, his hair greyer than it was a year ago, the easy banter with the media and with the carefully selected audiences for his speeches, mostly gone. There is little to joke about."

UNITED WE STAND. divided...I say: screw you then, i will still stand with our fearless warrior!

Keung Ye! Mister President!

Survey: One-in-Five Workers Lie

by Rosemary Haefner
Vice President of Human Resources
Ever get that sneaking suspicion one of your co-workers isn't being straight with you? Your instincts may be right.

Nineteen percent of workers admitted they tell lies at the office at least once a week, according to CareerBuilder.com's new "Honesty in the Workplace" survey. Fifteen percent of workers reported they were caught in a lie at the office.

When asked why they felt compelled to bend the truth at work, respondents cited the following reasons:

To appease a customer (26 percent)
To cover up a failed project, mistake or missed deadline (13 percent)
To explain an unexcused absence or late arrival (8 percent)
To protect another employee (8 percent)
To get another employee in trouble or look better in front of a supervisor (5 percent)
But be warned: Nearly one-in-four hiring managers -- 24 percent -- say they have fired an employee for being dishonest.

It may seem cliche, but honesty is the best policy. Even if you are motivated by the best of intentions, being deceitful can seriously compromise your credibility with colleagues and negatively impact your career progress. The vast majority of hiring managers -- 85 percent -- say they are less likely to promote an employee who has lied to them or other members of the organization.

The most common lies workers say they have told at the office include:

I don't know how that happened (20 percent)
I have another call to take or I'll call you right back (16 percent)
I've been out of town or out sick (10 percent)
I like your outfit or you look great (8 percent)
I didn't get your e-mail, voicemail or fax (8 percent)
Which ones have you used?

Survey Methodology:
CareerBuilder.com's survey, "Honesty in the Workplace," was conducted from November 15 to December 6, 2005. Methodology used to collect survey responses totaling more than 2,050 workers for this study involved selecting a random sample of comScore Networks panel members. These Web Panel members were approached via an e-mail invitation, which asked them to participate in a short online survey. The results of this survey are statistically accurate to within +/- 2.16 percentage points (19 times out of 20). Note: the sample of 2,050+ included 1,000 hiring managers. The results for the hiring managers alone are accurate within +/- 3.09 percentage points (19 timesout of 20).

From the pad of Bob's Outer Space...

Their is really something wrong - we have a Geography teacher in Colorado teaching leftwing anarchy theory and half our kids can't find their butts with both hands. Just two weeks ago it took me about ten (10) minutes to show on a map the US/Mexican border to a 40 something man who expresses political opinions and votes. In my college geography class at the end of the Vietnam tragedy 1/3 the class could not find Vietnam on a map. We just lost 58,000 dead there. It would take way too long to detail the blind mans bluff committed on the American national landscape. Christopher Columbus had a better world vision than the BMOC sitting next to me who was graduating that semester. God help us.

ps: remember 9/11


The Assault on American Youth
by Oliver North
Washington, D.C. -Washington, D.C. – The last Global Geographic Literacy Survey, assessing the geographic knowledge of 18-24 year-olds in nine different countries – Canada, France, Mexico, Great Britain, Japan, Italy, Sweden, Germany, and the United States – was, at best a disappointment. It found, for example, that only 17 percent of young Americans could locate Afghanistan on a map; 29 percent could not correctly identify the Pacific Ocean; and 11 percent were unable to find the continental United States.

Moving on...

I have moved on. I am taking care of business, not as I would've thought I needed to, but as I now need to.
listening to those around me, some with words of encouragement and support, heeding their advice. Some with words of concern, concern for themselves and their issues...
Stop. Listen. Learn.
These words stuck in my mind since I heard them from a friend sharing about the things that work for him.
Today is a day full of promise, hope and action...
There IS plenty of time...when I live in the now moment. It is eternal living. Here and now. Always.
Sometimes we need plan for tomorrow, but Living is done today.
