Beautifully written by Clarence Thomas. (And to think Senator Biden was a part of the high-tech lynching (or Borking) of Thomas)...
Shame on you Democrats!!
Our society went terribly wrong when we allowed young people, unchallenged, to believe that they were as intelligent, as experienced, and their mere opinion was as valuable as that of older, more truly experienced, ADULTS. Perhaps it simply boils down to respect for your elders, but with the reasoning ability to judge who truly has proved experience and judgment. What if William Ayers father had challenged him on his radical socialist beliefs? Would we have seen the same outcome?
There is far to much emphasis by Senator Obama on “service”, a very socialist sounding meme. The emphasis should instead be on “duty”. “Duty” is something patriots should understand. Duty to self, family, community, and country doesn't mean “organizing”. It means sacrifice, not daily necessarily, but certainly an understanding of what the “ultimate sacrifice” means and what a precious thing it is. We lost our focus when we allowed our children to believe their wants and desires were the most important things in the world, with no understanding of how many times a coward can die.
