QUOTE(s) OF THE DAY

President's Radio Address ~ March 22, 2008

Good morning. This weekend, families across America are coming together to celebrate Easter. This is the most important holiday in the Christian faith. And during this special and holy time each year, millions of Americans pause to remember a sacrifice that transcended the grave and redeemed the world.

Easter is a holiday that beckons us homeward. This weekend is an occasion to reflect on the things that matter most in life: the love of family, the laughter of friends, and the peace that comes from being in the place you call home. Through good times and bad, these quiet mercies are sources of hope.

On Easter, we hold in our hearts those who will be spending this holiday far from home -- our troops on the front lines. I deeply appreciate the sacrifices that they and their families are making. America is blessed with the world's greatest military, made up of men and women who fulfill their responsibilities with dignity, humility, and honor. Their dedication is an inspiration to our country and a cause for gratitude this Easter season.

On Easter, we remember especially those who have given their lives for the cause of freedom. These brave individuals have lived out the words of the Gospel: "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." And our Nation's fallen heroes live on in the memory of the Nation they helped defend.

On Easter, we also honor Americans who give of themselves here at home. Each year, millions of Americans take time to feed the hungry and clothe the needy and care for the widow and the orphan. Many of them are moved to action by their faith in a loving God who gave His son so that sin would be forgiven. And in this season of renewal, millions across the world remember the gift that took away death's sting and opened the door to eternal life. Laura and I wish you all a happy Easter.

Thank you for listening.

Statement by the President on the Taiwan election

I congratulate the people of Taiwan on the successful conclusion of their March 22 presidential election. Once again, Taiwan has demonstrated the strength and vitality of its democracy. I also congratulate Mr. Ma Ying-jeou on his victory.

Taiwan is a beacon of democracy to Asia and the world. I am confident that the election and the democratic process it represents will advance Taiwan as a prosperous, secure, and well-governed society.

It falls to Taiwan and Beijing to build the essential foundations for peace and stability by pursuing dialogue through all available means and refraining from unilateral steps that would alter the cross-Strait situation. I believe the election provides a fresh opportunity for both sides to reach out and engage one another in peacefully resolving their differences.

The maintenance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the welfare of the people on Taiwan remain of profound importance to the United States. We will continue to maintain close unofficial ties with the people on Taiwan through the American Institute in Taiwan in accordance with our long standing one China policy, our three Joint Communiqu s with the People's Republic of China, and the Taiwan Relations Act.

The President leaves the Oval Office for his Easter weekend trip to Camp David and leaves in the Presidential helicopter.

Camp David

Camp David serves the President, providing the First Family and their guests with a healthy, safe and uniquely private place to work or relax. Established as "Shangri-La" by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, it was subsequently renamed Camp David by Dwight Eisenhower.

During times of conflict and strife, from World War II to more recent events, Camp David has offered solitude and tranquility. A majority of Presidents have used Camp David to host visiting foreign leaders, with Prime Minister Winston Churchill of Great Britain being the first, during May 1943.

President George W. Bush delivers his weekly radio address to the nation from Camp David, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2001.

Dec. 24, 2005 ~~ Q&A: Laura Bush on Camp David (article and video)

(According to Time): Camp David, A Palatial Retreat

A 30-min. helicopter ride from Washington, which is 75 miles to the southeast, Camp David is a 143-acre compound of more than a dozen buildings, perched on a 1,880-ft. hilltop in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains. The heavily wooded setting, teeming with deer and raccoon, blue jays and snowbirds, and an occasional pileated woodpecker, provides Presidents a spot for total seclusion. Sadat's visit last week marked the 20th time that a foreign chief has joined in that peace and quiet—Churchill's five trips were the most numerous.

As befits such guests, Camp David boasts the kinds of services that could make King Solomon envious. Operated with military efficiency by about 100 Navy men and Marines, it can provide almost anything a President might want: a free-form heated swimming pool, a sauna, two clay tennis courts, a one-hole, three-tee golf course, a two-lane bowling alley, a trout stream, skeet-shooting and archery range, movie facilities, a wide selection of music (Richard Nixon used to stand in front of the stereo speakers and "guest conduct" his favorite symphonies fortissimo). *snip*

Along with all the diversions, Camp David also provides—at the bottom of an elevator shaft sunk 100 ft. into the mountain—a fortress where the President could repair in time of war. Even in peaceful times, security is tight. Rifle-bearing Marines keep watch behind a double row of barbed-wire-topped fences.

Pray for President Bush ~~ Day 2746

This is OUR "Sanity Island," so, please remember that .. and maybe think 3 times before you jump in with any junk or offensive comments.

Cheney Presses For MidEast Peace

# Vice president arrives in Jerusalem to push for Israeli-Palestinian agreement

# Cheney meets with Israeli president, plans to see Palestinian counterpart

# Vice president spent two days in Saudi Arabia discussing energy costs

Vice President Dick Cheney sought to coax Israel and the Palestinians to follow through on promises to forge a peace deal as he began an Easter weekend trip to Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Vice President Dick Cheney arrives at the Jerusalem airport Saturday for a weekend visit.

After two days in Saudi Arabia, Cheney headed into a Saturday evening meeting with Israel's prime minister, Ehud Olmert, soon after his arrival.

Cheney's visit is part of the U.S. strategy to keep pressure on the two sides, despite recent bloodshed, to agree on a framework for peace before President Bush leaves office in January.

Cheney planned to attend an Easter service Sunday in Jerusalem, then head to Ramallah in the West Bank for talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Bush asked Cheney to visit Israel to discuss the peace process and other regional issues in advance of Bush's trip in May to mark the 60th anniversary of the modern state of Israel, according to Cheney spokeswoman Lea Ann McBride.

Thsnks for the wonderful pictures and the interesting info on Camp David. The President’s radio address this morning was very moving and so appropriate. Although it probably drove the atheists nuts (as if they aren’t already). Again, thanks for the thread.

Thanks for today’s Dose, Star. I had never realized that Shangrala was actually Camp David. Roosevelt managed to keep it secret all through WWII. The only thing I’ve read about where it was has been “somewhere in the U.S.”

i saw on Fox the other day, and it was only on once, that the secret service is investigating an attempt on President Bush from 2005!!!!!!!!!! The guy got into a rally of some kind and had a gun on him, he said that he didn’t shoot because he thought he was being watched!

Is Arwen really YOURS? She’s adorable.

One Easter we took our red Irish setter for a walk. I began to fear we were going to cause a traffic accident when we walked along with the dog with big, pink Easter bunny ears attached to her red head. Drivers would glance, and then look back and start laughing hard. But, mainly, I felt sorry for the three girls on bicycles who laughed so hard that one them fell off her bike.

That's funny!

Yes, Arwen has been with us since mid-December. We've had rabbits before, but mostly kept them in the cage except for some exercise runs.

Arwen has a great temperament and been a great little companion, pretty much with free run of the house when we're home, and run of the family room most of the time. She usually comes when called and hops up and down the stairs like a little, well, like a rabbit I guess. : ) She is just a little puffball of love, I tell you.

You’re welcome. A bit of a late ending,
and though I left for a few hours, I
started early. LOL.

The President’s message is such a true reflection
of all he carries in his heart, with his Guide at his
side. Isn’t it so wonderful to hear a President
speak of the story and glory of God?

God bless and protect America, President Bush and
our heroic troops, sacrificing and fighting for us
at this moment.

Fargo Man Under Investigation for Bush Assassination Plot
Last Edited: Wednesday, 19 Mar 2008, 10:26 PM CDT
Created: Wednesday, 19 Mar 2008, 9:44 PM CDT

MINNEAPOLIS – Secret Service agents in Minneapolis are investigating a possible plot to kill President Bush. He’s already been sentenced for making death threats against the President – but now investigators are finding evidence that David Cvijanovich was armed with a gun and had planned to assassinate the president at a 2005 rally in Fargo.

President Bush visited Fargo just after the State of the Union address in 2005. Police say Cvijanovich attended the rally, but did not act on his plans to harm the president out of fears he was being watched.

More than a year after the rally, police searched Cvijanovich’s home during the investigation finding a gun and several disguises.

Cvijanovich allegedly made threats against the president while he was serving time for damaging government property and threatening a federal officer in 2001. He allegedly told a fellow inmate he wanted to kill the president. He was convicted of those charges in 2006 and sentenced to 19 months in jail.

Cvijanovich has denied the assassination intentions, saying they are accusations made up by lying inmates who wanted time off their sentences.

He has not been charged in connection to any activity at the rally, only for the threats he made in jail. When his 19-month prison sentence is finished, Cvijanovich is set to serve 3 and a half years of supervised release, including one year in a halfway house and two years of electronic monitoring.

~~~

Praying for the continued protection of President Bush.

President and Mrs. Bush returned from Camp David where they celebrated the Easter Holiday with family members, including his parents and daughter Barbara and Barbara’s "friend" Jay Blount.

Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife and Liz Cheney, began Easter Sunday with a prayer and the singing of 'Amazing Grace' at a tiny chapel in Jerusalem. VP Cheney then launched into a day of talks about conflict: the Mideast peace process and the rising influence of Iran in the region.

WOULDA-COULDA-SHOULDAS ON IRAQ
By James Lewis

The woulda-coulda-shouldas sprang forth on the five-year anniversary of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein last week. It was Monday morning quarterbacking, mostly. Pundits confuse their personal brainstorms with history, and pretend they could have carried that football better than George W. Bush did in 2003; or even more bizarrely, they imagine there was no game at all that day. Saddam was obviously harmless, as the media think they know after the fact. 9/11 was a one-time accident. On Monday morning everything is clear.

Rational wars are waged for strategic goals, and yes, Iraq is a rational war. But to understand geopolitical strategy you have to look at a map, understand our life-and-death dependence on oil, face the spread of mass-killing weapons, watch the rise of deeply irrational regimes, and then cleanse your mind of all the cheap sentimental cliches and political spins that are constantly gushed by the media. You have to look at reality.

MARINE SINGS ANSWER TO DIXIE CHICKS HIT
By Dan Lamothe - Staff writer
Posted : Friday Mar 21, 2008 6:23:15 EDT

Cpl. David Thibodeaux was in Iraq with 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines, when the Dixie Chicks partnered with anti-war group MoveOn.org in 2004. Despite the band making headlines with anti-war views, he didn’t know much about them, he says.

Nevertheless, Thibodeaux now sings “Not Ready to End the Fight,” an “answer song” to the Dixie Chicks’ 2006 anti-war hit, “Not Ready to Make Nice.”

“I’ve seen so many good things happen in Iraq, and I don’t think it’s time for the war to end,” said Thibodeaux, a member of the Chemical and Biological Incident Response Force. “Anybody who doesn’t think there are terrorists out there should open their eyes.”

Hi Deb, Thanks for your post and the information about the WH Easter Egg hunt tomorrow. I hope they have good weather.

I had not heard about the rebutal song to the Dixie Chicks. That put a big ole smile on my face.

Hi snugs...how cool that Good Friday and Easter Monday are holidays in Britain. I can remember the day when we got 2 hours off work to go to church on Good Friday and spring break coincided with Easter. But it is not “politically correct” to do that anymore, so they say. Offends non-Christians, I guess.
