File under Foxhole Philosophy – The Key to Life, it’s very essence…is Integrity.
Hidden from a sniper in a long-ago war, where any slight movement could invite an unwelcome ‘full metal jacket’ response, one often experiences a ‘near-death clarity’.
What’s important in Life? What’s the essence? Stark reality, that an unseen adversary could take all away with 7.62mm finality, reveals that status, position, life-experiences, material possessions…all mean nothing when the crosshairs are on your chest.
Thus, a ‘foxhole’ revelation…The meaning of Life is in how you choose to Live it.
After all, everything you have can be taken away. Whether by sniper in far-away jungle or desert wars, a random drunken driver, or an aloof government in Washington, your life can be changed in a heartbeat…regardless of any desperate efforts on your part.
Your house, your kids, your job, your car, even your life…anything of any importance to you…can be taken – except your Integrity. That can’t be taken, unless you give it away.
Integrity is the Essence…it’s the only thing you truly own, that can’t be taken from you. This applies to how you live your life, and every issue you encounter along the way.
An issue without Integrity has no value. So what does it say about an issue, if deception or falsehoods are necessary to support it, rather than a bedrock foundation of Integrity?
Yet, once again, in an attack on the American people and the Constitution, the Left’s favorite leader has relied on – not just deception, not just falsehoods – but, sadly, child exploitation as well, in an effort to further erode 2nd Amendment rights of citizens.
Relying on deception, falsehoods, and child exploitation to push Gun Control should tell you everything you need to know about how invalid the Left’s argument has been.
More importantly, when does Obama get held to account for his willingness to – once again – perpetrate a hoax on Americans, using such devious, shameful tactics?
So many hoaxes…so little time…
18th century English author Samuel Johnson said that “…patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel…”; meant as a criticism of what he viewed as false patriotism in others.
Add to our American lexicon a new entry – ‘Obamalism’ – defining an all-inclusive rich tapestry of falsehoods, deception, and (child) exploitation, woven to sell the next hoax…
…used as a descriptive for an act necessary when issues lack Integrity.
When Integrity goes AWOL – ‘Obamalism’…the last refuge of a hoaxster.
