Outrageous!

***Bill Clinton says military is now "less racist, less sexist, less homophobic." 


At a campaign rally for President Barack Obama yesterday in Virginia, former President Bill Clinton talked about bringing "this country together" and crossing "all of its diversity." Then, Clinton added this:
"One of the things the decider-in-chief has to do is decide whether he’s going to bring this country together across all its diversity or let it drift apart. Look at how much stronger the American military is because it is less racist, less sexist and less homophobic and we’re just looking for people who can do the job," said Clinton.

How this race is even close is beyond me...

***I was driving to church with my aunt and mom yesterday morning when my aunt said she had voted, and "sure didn't want Mourdock in there." I told her I did, and why, and she said, "Well, what about that rape thing?" I gave her the entire quote and what he meant (which is obvious to a rational thinker). Rush is right, negative ads work on people who don't get their information anywhere but the evening news. When she told me she voted for Obama, though, I nearly pulled the car over and threw her out (but I didn't). I asked her if she was happy with the way the country was going, and she said it was the Republicans' fault. You know, I love my aunt, but there's really no way to deal with that level of ignorance.

***Biden has two-gaffe Sunday. Only two? He's getting better.

Vice President Joe Biden had a couple minor gaffes Sunday in Ohio.
He's mistakenly referred to "President Clinton" instead of "President Obama."
Biden told a crowd of 1,200 people at Lakewood High School that a Republican ad claiming Jeep will move jobs out of Ohio was "pernicious," and a sign that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is desperate to win the state.
The gaffe-prone Biden said the ad claims "President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China."
Earlier in the day, in a conversation inside a Cleveland diner, Biden referenced Slovakia and his role in convincing President Clinton to go after former Serbian President Slobodan Milosovic.
He was presumably referring to Slovenia, the nation that formed part of Yugoslavia before it broke up into several independent countries.

He's only a heartbeat away, people. Let's hope and pray (and pray some more) that that changes tomorrow.

***From my devotional book:

In View of God's Mercy

Paul spends the first eleven chapters of Romans establishing the truth that salvation is a gift from God; there is no justification before Him on the basis of our works. He was fighting hard against the idea that legalism is the basis for our faith.

But in chapter 12 of Romans, he shows that good works, obedience, sacrifice, commitment, discipline, and lifestyle are a huge part of what it means to be a Christian. They don't make us children of God, but we do them because we are children of God. Because of God's mercy - His gift of new life through the blood of Jesus - Paul urges us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices.
 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." - Romans 12:1

***Obama campaigns with celebs as Sandy devastation continues. We certainly know where his priorities are, don't we?

***Okay, this is a good one...

By Priscilla Leonar

Forget each kindness that you do
As soon as you have done it.
Forget the praise that falls to you
The moment you have won it.

Forget the slander that you hear
Before you can repeat it.
Forget each slight, each spite, each sheer
Wherever you may meet it.

Remember every kindness done
To you, whate'er its measure.
Remember praise by others won
And pass it on with pleasure.

Remember every promise made
And keep it to the letter.
Remember those who lend you aid
And be a grateful debtor.

Remember all the happiness
That comes your way in living.
Forget each worry and distress;
Be hopeful and forgiving.

Remember good, remember truth,
Remember Heaven's above you,
And you will find, through age and youth,
True joys and hearts to love you.
