Monday Medly ~

I thought I would start the week off with an assortment of good news stories. Refresh our batteries, so to speak. I have the impression that things are going to get a bit uglier as the debate in Iraq continues, the anti-war groups ramp up their nonsense as more good news  comes out of Iraq and Afghanistan and the presidential candidates try to draw blood as we get closer to the primaries.

I’m sure many more rants from me will be forthcoming. (In fact, I have a couple of comments from ‘impeachbush’ to answer when I have a bit more time. Maybe. I’m getting tired of repeating myself.)

But today, let’s give a look at how our troops are doing in other places besides Iraq:

Afghanistan:

    ‘impeachbush’ – the nom de plume of an open-minded person – NOT!!! I read the comments – poor job of regurgitating the talking points…’bushliedpeopledied’

    Great list of the good news – there is so much!

    Sorry, Deb, I poked your troll – a hateful and vicious one, too.

    Thanks for commenting, FG!! I haven’t had time to go point to point. It will take a bit of time – so many other things need my attention here right now. I’ll visit your place soon! ~;o)

    Why bother – IT is fully indoctrinated. Linked to a Greenwald piece – one of the lefts greatest haters – as a source and it advocates overthrowing the govermment. BIZARRE.

    you’re probably right. All you have to do is read most of hte post’s on my blog ~ links to facts and debunkments and all. I do like to back up my statements and opinions with info from sources other than the media or this and that blog. I double check my favorite blogs too.
    It’s too bad that the people who demand the most extreme solutions to what they perceive as cause of the world’s ills (usually it’s all the US’s fault), do not seem to double check their sources for factual info. Mostly, they stay with that which fits their conclusion, factual or not.
    This latest broohaha with Rush Limbaugh and “phony soldiers” is a perfect example.
