The Thread of Life…

The Thread of Life...

By Garret Hashimoto

Each of our lives can be thought of as a fragile thread suspending the experiences of our life journey from conception to death. A tiny thread that may be cut at any time in a dizzying number of ways. Regardless of where on our journey through life this thread is cut, death is the inevitable result. Beginning with the day of our birth, a monumental effort is put forth by those that came before us to ensure our safety and well-being. We are nourished and protected, loved and admired, the very embodiment of hope for the future.

Our family, our society, and our laws work hard to keep our thread intact following our birth in an effort to ensure we have every opportunity to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. As we continue our journey, we become more and more capable of assuming responsibility for our own thread. We are driven by an innate desire to survive in this world, to find our place and to make a contribution.

Senator Rubio: “It’s in God’s Hands” & Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena”

Theodore Roosevelt, who grew up a sickly boy, became a Medal of Honor winner after charging up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War leading his troops to victory. In Paris, France on April 23, 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt gave one of his most famous speeches delivered at the University of Paris (the Sorbonne,) which included this key paragraph:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. 

Blacks Overwhelmingly Vote Democrat in Every Election

Arlington, Va. (Aug. 11, 2003) -- National Football League (NFL) Hall of Fame quarterback, Terry Bradshaw stencils writing on the wall to paper at the 9/11 Memorial for Americas Heroes inside the Pentagon. Race was never in question during 9/11.

Democrat and Blacks Go Together?

Obama has upset far too many Blacks. Greater than 90% of Blacks voted to Obama in 2008. However, 4 years do make a difference. That from a man who is only 45% Black. The other 55% is White. He is a liberal Democrat, however.

From ANSWERS, an estimate of Obama's heritage: 50% White, 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African. [http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_Barack_Obama's_heritage_as_follows_50_Caucasian_43.75_Arabic_and_6.25_African_Negro#ixzz24xpNM4rL]

What’s known for sure--Obama does not have at least 50% Black ancestry. Therefore he is not America’s first Black president. Why do so many Blacks and Democrats vote for Obama, just because they think he’s Black?

Abortion Should be Most Important

The ‘coup-de-grace’ for a total refusal of any Black voting for Obama is abortion. Since Roe vs, Wade, over 40% of the Black population is dead because of abortion. The major culprit is Planned Parenthood (PP), which is totally supported by Obama, and partially funded by him (almost 400M/yr).

PP has opened most of its abortion facilities in minority neighborhoods. The Black community has been more targeted than any other group. In New York City, for every 1,000 Blacks born alive, 1,448 are eliminated by abortion.

Pro-Life Never Before in Olympics--Until Now

2010 Army Ten Miler--Run-up to 2012 Olympics in Britain


File:2010 Army Ten Miler Start.jpgThe 2012 Olympic stars are famous now. We can all remember swimmer Ryan Lochte, gymnast Gabrielle Douglas, swimmer Missy Franklin, decathlete Ashton Eaton, volleyball player Misty May-Treanor, wrestler Jordan Burroughs, and (the ‘Oh-So’ hope of Olympic dreams) soccer goalie Hope Solo. But does anyone actually remember shot-put medalist  Reese Hoffa?

Reese as an early Bronze medalist,  with the flurry of medal wins by the USA towards the end, seemed forgotten. After his incredible victory, and finally in the camera spotlight, he described the cause dear to his heart.

Huckabee is right to condemn GOP for leaving wounded on battlefield

As a former Navy enlisted man, West Point graduate, and former Army officer, I appreciate what Governor Mike Huckabee wrote to his supporters yesterday.  Military men never leave their wounded on the battlefield.  And that is what has happened with the embattled Congressman Todd Akin, running for a Senate seat against Democrat Claire McCaskill in Missouri. 

The Republican establishment joined the Democrat Party and the media in relentless attacks over Congressman Akin’s misstatement about abortion and rape during the past few days.

It's NOT the economy stupid

Abortion's History Winds Up With Planned Parenthood

File:Deuteronomy 27 25.jpg  


Abortion as a whole was looked down upon, up until the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973. Any abortion, up until “quickening” was highly discouraged. In the 1800’s, "quick" originally meant "alive". Throughout history, quickening was considered to be the beginning of “life" by the unborn.

Obama Changes Abortion Stance?

File:WhSouthLawn.JPEGIn a recently unmentioned move by the Obama Administration, Ellie Shafer (Director/White House Visitor’s Office) disseminated an email newsletter to Congress, and visiting parties, providing detailed instructions on how to register an unborn child. This would be specifically for for the White House security system input, and for arranging group tours.

This specifically means for a White House tour the unborn child is considered to be a living, breathing person. Shafer wrote, “… You MUST include the baby in the overall count of guests in the tour.”

The newsletter explains how "the baby's security information should be entered" into the system. If known, they want the gender included. It also instructed how all known information should be updated "once, the baby is born". We already know the baby is a young human from the point of conception, even though it won’t cause any undue interruption in White House events, or even ‘pull a gun out, and start making demands’.

Obama Likely OK with a Loss in November


Atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.

It gets scarier yet. Even if Obama loses the presidential election in November, it’s legal and possible to be re-elected to the presidency in 2016. From all indications, his plans are to do exactly that, if election results don’t sway his way by the second time, the third should be the charm.

Considering the massive debt built in the last three years, we find it will increase beyond the $1.3 trillion mark. It is a debt that cannot be repaid by any conventional means. As a result, if Obama loses the election this November (very possible), he can come back in 2016 because he’ll convince Americans his methods will fix the expanded debt.

He will likely propose new ideas such as a new World Order to eliminate all the accrued debt. This new World Order will involve extreme socialism. The earlier economic morass will mistakenly cause millions to flee the Founding Fathers’ capitalistic society, thinking that socialism, or government interference with the free market, will finally succeed.
