Supplements unwelcome in the European Union

This could cause Shaklee some sleepless nights. The European Union is working hard to show just how far the left can go toward government control at the expense of individual freedoms.

A Continuing Prayer

“Ever faithful God, in death we are reminded of the precious birthrights of life and liberty you endowed in your American people. You have shown once again that these gifts must never be taken for granted. We pledge to those whom you have called home, and ask of you — Patience, to measure our lust for action; Resolve, to strengthen our obligation to lead; Wisdom, to illuminate our pursuit of justice, and; Strength, in defense of liberty. We seek your special blessing today for those who stand as sword and shield, protecting the many from the tyranny of the few. Our enduring prayer is that you shall always guide our labors and that our battles shall always be just. We pray this day, Heavenly Father, the prayer our nation learned at another time of righteous struggle and noble cause — America’s enduring prayer: Not that God will be on our side, but always, O Lord, that America will be on your side. Amen.” –Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld offering prayer at the opening of Friday morning’s White House cabinet meeting after 9-11

Peggy Noonan
Folks, I have Peggy linked on the right, but today’s Peggy Noonan deserves a special mention. She’s right. Mr. Bush is back from vacation, in a big way.

The Myth of a Republican Split on Iraq
Once again Charles Krauthammer has it right. Especially this excerpt:

It turns out that the disagreement among Republicans was less about going to Iraq than about going to the United Nations. It was a vastly overblown disagreement, because even the most committed unilateralist would rather not go it alone if possible. Of course you want allies. You just don’t want to be held hostage to their veto. And as the first President Bush demonstrated when he declared that the United States would liberate Kuwait unilaterally if necessary, the best way to get allies is to let others know you are prepared to go it alone and let them ponder the cost of missing the train.

It wasn’t just the words, but the delivery that changed the mood of the UN.

An Important Editorial from The New Republic

The New Republic is a long way from right of center. That’s why this indictment of the Democrat’s stand on Iraq is so important. The Democrats are on the wrong side of this, and it’s fairly obvious that some are beginning to realize it.
