We welcome you to Thanks For Listening. We think it to be one of the best websites of its kind. The title comes from the sign-off to the southendttp.co.uk award winning column in the Westside Journal in Port Allen, Louisiana. Each column is initiated with this kind of caring, whether with the poignancy of the Christmas message: The Little Star or noting the interaction of a father and son as the father slips away into the shadow world of Alzheimer disease. The award winning Gardens of Stone warned of the dismal flourishing of military funerals for casualties sacrificed post 9/11. The writing is www.southendttp.co.uk both powerful and effective, presenting points to ponder and answers to be demanded. Our honest and sometimes controversial approach to analyzing issues is garnered from years of stepping to the front lines to better assess and confront problems. We try to exhibit strong, solid writing, but with a sense of poignancy but never shying away from the irreverence punctuating the depth of our reader (and our) life experiences. We try to get straight to the point. Based in small town America, communication energy spreads to cities and villages alike; it's us, being us and trying to make sense of it all lips away into the shadow world of Alzheimer disease.

Your own lyinn eyes

Your own lying eyes By Sarge Every morning I awaken to the challenge of finding a topic to address. (Some say bloviate about but I reject the criticism as long as Harry Reid is alive and Nancy Pelosi draws breath.) Today I found it in the disclosure Obama has again told the world of understandably restricted, if not Top Secret information, concerning Israelís nuclear power research or construction program. The last time he did this he had his flunky Leon Pannetta (who was then Secretary of Defense) to tell the world of Israelís strategy concerning their Arab neighbor states. If ďloose lips sink shipsĒ then this rubber headed, America hating, block-head in chief is trying to conduct a Pearl Harbor on the entire free world. Obamaís hatred of Israel is specific and concrete no matter what the lying bat turd says. He has displayed nothing but anathema and denunciation of the fact Israel is resolute in their stance they will NOT return to pre-1967 boundaries and borders of their nation. To do so would be suicide. The control of the Golan Heights alone specifically shows the need to assure Israel doesnít allow their Arab antagonists the literal high ground to launch artillery and missile strikes against Israel below. But Obama and Kerry are too stupid to understand what they donít want to understand. Pity. This is what masquerades as American leadership. Itís more significantly emblematic of all thatís wrong with American politics and politicians specifically. Politicians have no ethics. They have no constancy of action. Theyíre in it for themselves at this level and the ďlegacyĒ theyíll leave behind in historyís pages will be determined by those accepting their duplicity as good or evil. In liberal school systems, heroes of the left are published and bought as texts more often than those that are Right. With Obama allowing this matter to ďslipĒ into the public realm by declassifying intelligence held concerning Israel, his has again destabilized Americaís posture as a nation speaking truth and justice to the world. Itís destroyed the knowledge of Americaís willingness to stand behind decade long alliances with a people known to be in the cross-hairs of genocidal Arab antagonists wanting to finish Hitlerís work. People have drawn analogies between Hitler and Obama in the past. Nobodyís listened. They keep hearing the vitriolic diatribe uttered by this jerk and reject their seeing what heís doing because he says he isnít doing it. Thereís an old question asked of stupid people: ďare you going to believe me or your own lying eyes?Ē Obamaís been very, very obvious in what heís doing and our witless Congressional and Senatorial ďrepresentativesí have gone along with it because they have this belief if they stay loyal to Obamaís cause theyíll be rewarded in the next world. Does that mean theyíll get ice cubes in hell for their julips? Thatís surely what Obama has in mind as a destination for any and all who associate with him as he drags the American flag through the bloody mud of the Middle East. He holds this stupid belief Iran will be ďcontrolledĒ with a bargain holding no legal recourse to stop the Iranians in the World Court and he removed sanctions they say werenít having any positive effect on Iranís actions against its neighbors, Obamaís proven heís less American in his heart than Benedict Arnold. Check what you see and understand. Listen to what he says and understand what he wants. Then decide what YOU believe is truth; not what he says is truth when YOU know itís a lie. Accept NOTHING a politician says without investigating to find the facts, then decide the truth of the matter. Donít just take it without giving some of it back; abuse is meant to be resisted not accepted blindly. Sheep are led to slaughter. Do you stand tall and state your case or do you bleat as you walk to your personal and national demise? Will you seek truth and deal with it or reject what your own ďlying eyesĒ see? Either way, youíll get what you deserve. Thanks for listening
