Finding G.O.D.

From the comment section here:
A prayer
"By the muzzle flash we have seen the light, tread on us and expect a fight.By the lock, the stock and the barrel as well, may all G.O.D.'s foes go straight to hell.My your hand be steady, your aim be true, one ragged hole may your rounds pass through. May rust and politics curse thee not, may your shots not string when your barrel gets hot.May you have each week, each day, each hour, peace through superior firepower.So until the lord calls us to Heaven, his will be done with a 1911."

WTF, The best?

"WASHINGTON - Just days after Americans honored the 200th anniversary of his birth, 65 historians ranked Abraham Lincoln as the best U.S. president."

This is why the education of this country is in the pipes. I will not waste my time or yours rewriting the reasons Lincoln was a HORRIBLE President.

"After Lincoln, the academics rated George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman as the best leaders overall."

While George Washington belongs in the top 5, FDR is a NO good socialistic pig. Historians my ass. Propagandists without a practical knowledge of life. JFK snuck into the number 6 position, does anyone understand what bad happened in the early 60's under this mans "guidance"? I have more that I could say but this has really struck a nerve in me.

Contentment vs. Complacency

I was having a discussion the other day about my lack of passion for "corporate advancement", "title", or the normal keeping up with the Jones'. Not that I do not enjoy certain things, or even desire to own them ( a Barrett M82 comes to mind) but I do not have LUST for physical or material things. The above question was posed. My thought is that you can not have one without the other, and neither is bad as long as they are not taken to excess. When the follow up question was asked "Then what do you want out of life?"

I could not help but grin and respond "To be left alone." I wonder if I should have been more detailed, but I do not believe so. However this is not a statement of non-emotion, I still need to search for Liberty, Freedom, and choice. Once again you cannot have one without the other.
**Addition** Was having the Sunday talk with my father and general discussion led to the economy and politics. He is considering buying ammo so that the "new" Indiana law designed to "save" him will turn him into a criminal. More improtant though, we were talking about the personal budget being tight, not alone there, and he mentioned that with my salary and a family of 4 I am "entitled" to gov't access med care for my kids. That turned a pleasant conversation to the son preaching to the father that NO ONE is entitled to anything except death, the rest we earn.
