UN Resolution 1701

Posted by Mark on August 11, 2006

The worthless, useless corrupt UN has voted unanamously today to hog-tie Israel. They disguised it as a fair agreement with equanimity for all; forever to be known as Resolution 1701. YAH right. Uh….I have one question for you CLOWNS….

..whatever happened to Resolution 1559…you pathetic panoply of pondering pinheads?

For those of you who don’t remember the finer details of 1559…let me take a moment to remind everyone of a couple of clauses that were blatantly IGNORED, quickly DISREGARDED, grossly VIOLATED, NEVER enforced and remains a spectacular highlight of UN incompetence:

– Calls for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias;

– Calls upon all parties concerned to cooperate fully and urgently with the Security Council for the full implementation of this and all relevant resolutions concerning the restoration of the territorial integrity, full sovereignty, and political independence of Lebanon;

Israel cooperated….they withdrew from Lebanon. But what about HEZBOLLAH? huh?…hey Kofi…you sorry sack of s***- why is Hezbollah still in Lebanon?…why haven’t they disarmed and disbanded?

And now you want Hezbollah to not only agree to 1701- but to ABIDE by it? Are you OUT OF YOUR minds? (Uh…we know they are…I just needed to shout it out.) Another silly exercise from an inept dysfunctional organization with absolutely no sense of morality.

By my count- that makes 1701 empty solutions so far….

A Time to Live and a Time to Die

In the midst of Lieberman, Israel, and the War on Terror, sometimes real life intrudes, and forces us to realize what’s important. Family, friends, faith.

My Momma died Sunday night. My brother Dean called at 6PM, saying if we want to see her, we need to leave now. Twenty minutes later, we were on the road, traveling at no less than 90. Six hours later, somewhere outside of St. Louis, my cellphone rang. My brother held the phone to my Mother’s ear, and I told her I loved her. It was the last words I would say to her this side of Heaven. Later, we found out she had been hanging on, with no blood pressure discernible for two hours, waiting for me and mine to get there. She simply couldn’t hang on any longer. Five minutes after talking to me, she stopped breathing. Her last words were “Okay, Richard.” Richard, her husband, and my Daddy, died in 1998. They are together now.

My Momma taught Sunday School at the First Baptist Church for forty years. Many of those former 2nd graders will be there tomorrow for the funeral. They’ll be there, like me, with their children and grandchildren. I can’t think of a more fitting tribute to her. She, of course, would be embarrassed at all the fuss…

If you would like to see a picture of my Momma, and sign the online guestbook, you can go to the Parks Brothers website here. Parks Brothers has seen most of the members of my family along the journey of life and death. They know this small town, and the wonderful people who live there. In twenty years of doing therapy, I’ve met no better grief counselors than the staff at Park’s Brothers. Tomorrow, they will do the job they do so well; politely and with compassion shepherding us through the grief process of missing our Momma.
