I really have a love-hate relationship with this guy (hey, Newt confirmed me as a friend on Facebook—not bad!) but I really think at times he probably should have took a stab at this year’s U.S. presidential elections. He shatters the myth that conservatives are anti-intellectual big time. Here is some sensible stuff he spoke recently courtesy of Youtube.com.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
—40th President of the United States of America, Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) discussing the importance of preserving freedom.
Oh I wish this man stayed longer as Chief of Canada’s Defence Staff but I guess General Rick Hillier felt that this coming Canada Day was the time to pack it in for a day. I applaud a man who meant what said and said what he meant. He helped rebuild the Canadian Armed Forces and gave it’s participants pride that was long overdue needed. He was outspoken, told it the way it was and stuck it to those who have an outdated chidishly leftist peacenik view of Canada. Well done General! They say old soldiers don’t die but fade away. I hope this is not the case with you, as for now I wish you well in your upcoming retirement, sir!
Silvio Berlusconi is back to serve another term as Italy’s prime minister! Hurrah!!! Finally Western Europe is waking up and growing up with a string of more centre right leaders like France’s Zarkosky, Germany’s Merkel and with a hope and devout prayer David Cameron as the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in 2010. Keep it coming guys and my best wishes to Prime Minister-designate Burlusconi that he takes off his coat and stays a long while—I mean a loong time! Italy needs him real bad.
“…May 1968 imposed intellectual and moral relativism on us all. The heirs of May ’68 imposed the idea that there was no longer any difference between good and evil, truth and falsehood, beauty and ugliness. The heritage of May 1968 introduced cynicism into society and politics.”
—French President Nicholas Zarkozy aptly describing 1960’s counter culture views that have had a negative effect on France and even pervading the rest of western civilization for 40 years.
Thank you Charlton Heston for the wonderful work and legacy in cinema you have laid for us. Thank you for your role as Moses in The Ten Commandments, which I saw EVERY Easter-Passover season on TV since I was a small schister and for your role as Ben Hur. Thank you for your real life role as President of the National Rifle Association. Albeit controversial, you showed your passion in defending legal gun owners rights in the United States and stood up against leftist utopians with their rigid thinking that if you take guns from everybody, world peace will come—which you knew so well was (and still is) sentimental dreamy nonsense. The six year struggle with Alzheimers may have killed your body—but can never destroy your soul. Rest in peace, Mr.Heston and once again thank you.
