Unless you are willing to be as unreasonable and as brutal, as your enemy,  
do not engage him in a conflict -- because he will win.  
This old leatherneck says it better. 
Quote from a WWII veteran overhearing someone say , 
"You can't bomb an ideology.": 
"The hell you can't, because we did it. These Muslims are no different than the [Imperial] Japanese. The Japs had their suicide bombers too. And we stopped them. What it takes is the resolve and will to use a level of brutality and violence that your generations can't stomach. And until you can, this shit won't stop. It took us on the beaches with bullets, clearing out caves with flame throwers, and men like LeMay burning down their cities, killing people by the tens of thousands. And then it took 2 atom bombs on top of it. Plus we had to bomb the shit out of German cities to get them to quit fighting. But, if that was what it took to win, we were willing to do it. Until you are willing to do the same...well, I hope you enjoy this shit, because it ain't going to stop!" Back then, we had leadership, resolve, resources and determination. Today we're afraid to hurt people's feelings....and worry about which bathroom to piss in! 
"And that's the truth!"  
 The Picnic"  
A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.  
"This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?"  
The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding." 
"The Twenty and the One"  
A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty-dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired.  
As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation.  
The twenty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country.  
"I've had a pretty good life," the twenty proclaimed. "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean."  
"Wow!" said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"  
"So, tell me," says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"  
The one-dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church."  
The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?"  
Be yourself.  Everyone else is already taken. 
Accept what is.  Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be. 
If you want to know where your heart is,  look where your mind goes when it wanders. 
The people who know the least about you,  always have the most to say. 
To love is nothing.  To be loved is something. To love and be loved is  everything.
Angels are the messengers of God and carry out his judgements.  God Bless Everyone.
"'Thank You God" 
For giving us the opportunity to change our 
country back to what You intended it to be. We glorify Your Name for all You've done in bringing Donald Trump into office. We 'Thank You' for the way so many of Your people prayed, and You answered. Now we pray that You continue to equip him and his team to take the leadership in our nation. We pray that You block those who would cause confusion or disrupt this transition in any way. Bring us together again as "one nation under God", where your values are upheld and every person is blessed.  
In Jesus name we pray.  
"I Believe In Love"

We must leave you now.
 Hope your day has gone well
Adieu until we meet again.  
The one thing Trump & Putin will have in common is respect for one another. That means a lot 
They may not like one another but they will get along together.
I don't imagine too many people get lit-up on the 
Empire State Building.  And that was before he got finalized today by the Electoral College. 
Congratulations "President Trump".
I do not like Hillary or Bill Clinton.  I do however think it is a shame someone had to put a picture such as this out there for the world to see.  I think that is just plain low down.
