The rare moment is not the moment when there is something worth looking at, but the moment when we are capable of seeing. - Joseph Wood Krutch
In the fields and woods more than anything else all things come to those who wait, because all things are on the move, and are sure sooner or later to come your way. To absorb a thing is better than to learn it, and we absorb what we enjoy. We learn things at school; we absorb them in the fields and woods. When we look upon Nature with fondness and appreciation, she meets us halfway and takes a deeper hold on us than when studiously conned. Hence I say the way of knowledge of Nature is the way of love and enjoyment, and is more surely found in the open air than in the school room or the laboratory.
WASHINGTON — The full text of President Bush's June 28, 2005, remarks on the war in Iraq:
Thank you and good evening. I am pleased to visit Fort Bragg — "Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces." It is an honor to speak before you tonight. My greatest responsibility as president is to protect the American people, and that is your calling as well. I thank you for your service, your courage and your sacrifice. I thank your families, who support you in your vital work. The soldiers and families of Fort Bragg have contributed mightily to our efforts to secure our country and promote peace. Americais grateful — and so is your commander-in-chief.

Mark my words, Hillary Clinton will be running for president in the next election cycle and she will do everything in her immense power to win. Here is another example...
Ed Klein, author of the explosive new book "The Truth About Hillary," said in an interview the senator threatened the mainstream television networks over the book, saying she would no longer appear on any TV outlet that hosted Klein.
In an interview with John Hawkins, who runs the blog RightWingNews.com, Klein stated:
"Because of my book, Hillary and her war machine have called every major television network in the United States and suggested to them that if they have Ed Klein on to discuss his book, they can forget about Hillary being a guest on their network.
We had some liberal friends over for dinner Saturday evening. We of course had a great time and we discussed everything under the sun, had a little wine and laughed our rears off. And then came politics. Everything that the right says is wrong. Then Worldnetdaily publishes this commentary...
Given the liberals' endless drumbeat against the War on Terror – Iraq theater – and their preoccupation with indicting America, the Bush administration and the military for our treatment of prisoners in Gitmo and elsewhere, it's just a little silly that they would take umbrage with Karl Rove's "controversial" remarks.
Instead of debating whether Rove meant to indict the entirety of liberaldom in his speech to the New York Conservative Party, or just the Moveon.org types, to which he specifically referred, we should be careful not to miss the thrust of his message.
The president of the American Civil Liberties Union says polygamy is among the "fundamental rights" that her organization will continue to defend.
I hate to tell you I told you so, but... Once you get away from the God ordained definition of marriage, there is no intrinsic defintion that can stand up in court. At that point, everything become permissible. Good luck closing pandora's box.
