I've set up another blog. It's called Eidolons! Since returning from Iraq postings here at Fire and Ice have been increasingly political and confrontational in nature. Someone recently emailed me with a good-natured play on my last name-they addressed me as Warrant Officer F(r)ay. I don't imagine, in light of the current political situation and approaching mid-term elections, that I will avoid passionate comments confronting what, in my humble opinion, are fifth columnists amongst us here at home. I do not suffer fools gladly, so expect further fire for effects and rounds continuing to go down range.
The rhetoric of the Left, and in large part of the narcissistic and directionless Democratic Party, is designed with only one goal in mind, a return to power piggybacked on a defeat in Iraq. I am not fooled by newly spun phrases like "change of direction", which are being touted at pathetic news conferences the last couple days by Dems in the wake of stunning defeats on both floors of the Congress. This is nothing more than "cut and run" decked out in a new party dress. They want us to believe they're staunch thoughtful advocates for the troops and fighting terrorism. Do not be fooled that the emotion in their voices is anything other than panic, desperation and devotion to their own political agenda, and not for any imagined plight of GIs in Iraq.
Their predictable knee-jerk portrayal of the situation in Iraq as one rapidly de-evolving into chaos, rather than one of slow steady forward progress is obscene and insulting. They seem to be counting more on and heavily invested in American impatience, than on encouraging resolve and perseverance. In Iraq elections have been held, a legitimate democratic government established, a civil war averted, key terrorists eliminated or on the run, an improving civil, military and judicial infra-structure is being built, and there is an army of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in the field dedicated and invested in the mission.
Only the Left is in need of a "change of direction", only the Dems seem mired in chaos. But, again they'd have to have a direction in the first place wouldn't they? I was once a registered Dem....they will never get my vote again. When folks calling themselves Democrats aren't devoted to spreading democracy they might be well advised to choose a new moniker, or resurrect one from the past....Copperheads.
I took a quick little on-line test called the World's Smallest Political Quiz. Here's the result; turns out I'm a centerist. Go figure.
Oh yes, Eidolons!......no politics, just right-brain stuff. Hey, I tested out as a cultural creative at Quiz Farm as well.
