Epic Failure of Liberalism

***Read Rush's take on how liberals handle disasters. How's it going in New York and New Jersey?

***This election is about to give me ulcers. I have a good feeling about a Romney win, but I would feel better if he were up by double digits. This doesn't end for me until the final votes are tallied. Happens every four years...I try to stay calm, pray, keep reminding myself that God's in control, but I'm in a constant state of unease until it's over. If Romney does win, I won't gloat because I know how it feels to be on the other side. After Clinton's wins and Obama's win, I was morose for two weeks before I snapped out of it.

***Fraud in Ohio? Guess what, it's the Democrats. Who knew.

***From Inspire 21:

This uplifting message is all about an online service that helps people who want to send care packages to American troops stationed all over the world. More importantly, they encourage everyone to help boost the morale American Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen overseas by writing simple letters of thanks . Of all of the replies from appreciative troops, the overwhelming feedback is the love they feel in these personalized letters from their homeland.
Here's their story...
It was March 26th, 2003. Army Sergeant Brian Horn, one of 1,000 soldiers, parachuted into enemy territory in Northern Iraq.
Five months later, Brian Horn was able to call his parents. Marty and Sue Horn had been sending their son an average of six care packages per week. So when Brian asked his parents to send more, "my wife and I thought he was kidding!" Marty Horn told me. "But Brian said, 'no -- its for the soldiers that don't get any.'"
Both Marty and Sue Horn had spent their careers in the Military, so they immediately understood what Brian was saying. Millions of men and women serving overseas never receive any mail. Besides often lacking basic necessities, these men and women have to cope with the harsh conditions of serving overseas without signs of support from friends and family back home.
The Horns developed the idea for during that phone call. Marty created a website that explained the project and offered Brian's address -- including the words "Attn: Any Soldier". Brian would give these packages to the soldiers not receiving any mail. After his service in the Military, Marty had gotten involved in the still-young Internet. He knew how much opportunity the Internet offered, but even he was amazed at the results. "Within two weeks, we were getting flooded with email from all over the world. It was like an avalanche."
