What we now call Veterans Day, was originally Armistice Day celebrating the official end of World War I on November 11, 1918 at 11:00 AM Paris time–historically remembered as 11-11-11–the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Today, 11/11/11, is a unique day of remembrance. Every American should take time to thank a vet and whisper a prayer of thanksgiving and dependence on the One whose providence has favored us and protected us through the centuries.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the Name of the LORD our God.
Psalm 20:7

If the Senate votes on DADT now, it acts irresponsibly

“My mind is made up, so don’t confuse me with the facts.” That is the mentality of Senate leadership pressing the passage of the Defense Authorization Bill which includes the repeal of the so-called “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy in our military. They have not performed their “due diligence.” Get this…There has been an ongoing Pentagon investigation towards a detailed report of this policy and its effects upon morale, etc. among our troops. Apparently, Senate leadership wants to rush this bill through BEFORE the report is released. It does not get any more irresponsible than that, especially in our so-called scientific age of empiricism. They are so bent on getting this to a vote, that they are striving for a “cloture” vote on Tuesday to bring it directly to the floor for passage without the standard procedural checks and balances of the normal process. In other words, they don’t have the facts before they vote. Sound familiar? Well this time it is not about financial and budgetary concerns, but about the heart and soul of our military morale; social experimentation with the greatest voluntary and professional defense force in the world. Even aside from the strong feelings on both sides of the homosexual debate, it is the lack of “due diligence” that makes this action the height of irresponsibility. Our politically correct and morally neutral national leaders apparently will not look at the moral grounds of this issue, but certainly you would think they would, at the least, study the social data BEFORE making such sweeping changes. I do hope and pray America wakes up before election day.
