She's in labor!! No kidding.

I've been losing sleep watching. It's happening right now.

I've been thinking...

I don't post often, so when I do, I give my words a lot of thought before posting them.


It has been on my mind lately that many Americans cannot comprehend the concept of war. Other than what they see on the evening news or in the paper, it is a faraway concept. To those people, it is like watching a movie. Something that happens on screen but not in real life.

But, if bombs were dropping in, say, an Atlanta suburb, or terrorist cells began blowing up large Christian churches in the Bible Belt...if people died en mass, as they are in the ME, they would be reconsidering their concept of war. I imagine they would want it to stop, no matter what it took.

Why are these people so willing to commend our out of control Supreme Leader for dropping an MOAB that devestates an area a mile in diameter, killing every man, woman and child? If it were their families or their friend's families, they would be clamoring or an end to the violence.

My fear is that when (not if) it begins to happen right here at home, many Americans will not really get it. They will be shocked, because they believe we live in a country that is impervious to attack. We are not.

Our so-called pResident is dragging us straight down that rabbit hole.

I'm scared for this country.
