Milt,
You're doing a fine job. Keep up the good work.
I'm getting ready to preach at two churches this morning - and we have the three grand-daughters with us this week.
Have a blessed Sunday.

I am doing the best I can to catch up with my columns, my last one in the NWW News section was (75). If I don't finish it from the area, I have each saved and will finish them at some time, hopefully before the end of the month. In the meantime my columns will be more comments on the comment Wall Until I am up todate. I appreciate all those who are following my columns, I apologize for being unable to get around my disabilities. Your Friend.... Milt

My special hero, my father now at rest at Arlington National Cemetery. His Greandson and I chose to follow in his footsteps, but those are shoes hard to fill. None of his four sons will admit to filling them, they know better!

TSGT Uvin a. Clough Jr., USAF, R, please forgive me for taking the liberty to place your (Discussions) on the comment wall. The Discussion section of this group is meant for columns that Christian and Jolee have requested that I do for NWW. Your subjects are of such importance I had difficulty in doing this but I want first your information not to get lost in my columns. It pains me to do that and if you really want to mix your information in with columns, many which may not be suitable for those heroes who gave so much. Please understand, and if you want your info there, I'll do it with honor. Thank you in advance for your understanding. Your friend always, and fellow soldier (My father was in the Air Force 36 years, and when he was buried at Arlington Cemetery, under his name, rank and Service, he had only the word "SOLDIER" added. He told me if you wear the uniform of our country, regardless which service, we are all "Soldiers" who fight for our country. So forgive me again for the liberty of calling you a "fellow soldier".

Obama and crew will attempt to do whatever he can to corrupt this coming election, count on it! If we fail to get out the Vote in Nov of this year and 2012, none of us will ever see the America we one knew and little by little is being taken away from us. We must not allow that to happen, she is worth the fight (the Votes) and we must never allow them to draw us into any violence, if we do, they will succeed in corrupting the elections and we cannot allow that to happen!

Delete Discussion FIRST BE ADVISED - ALL, I REPEAT "ALL" UNIONS ARE MARXIST OR AT LEAST ONE OF ITS BASTARD CHILDREN SOCIALIST OR COMMUNIST! ! !

Your Islamic Chairman, Obama, and the Progressive/Marxist Controlled Congress owe these Unions Big Time. Not only that but because they are Progressive/Marxists themselves they totally agree that all Working People Must Belong to one of these Marxist Unions.

WHY? ?

What better way to CONTROL ALL PEOPLE AND ALL THINGS AS WELL AS BEING IN A POSITION TO BANKRUPT PRIVATE BUSINESS& INDUSTRIES THAT DON'T "KAO TOW", ETC? ? ?

Take Action, Spread the Word to all Family and Friends, encourage them to "VOTE" and contact their members of Congress - Honest American Members of Congress will fight this with the exception of Progressive/Members and the "Rat Fink Progressive RINO's".

Remind them all that there is an Election in November and 2012 and their Votes will be Noted! !

As Obama Kowtows, Unions Eye the Private Sector

One of the interesting things about the Obama administration is the strange dominance of labor unions. Yes, Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders do owe the unions something: Unions gave $400 million to Democrats in the 2008 campaign cycle, and they expect to get something in return.
What they haven't gotten out of the Democratic Congress is the thing they wanted most -- the card check bill that would effectively abolish the secret ballot in unionization elections. Unions now represent only 7 percent of private-sector workers, the lowest percentage since the early 1930s. Union leaders believe that with card check they could vastly increase their dues income.
But the unions have gotten lots of other things, as Peyton R. Miller reports in The Weekly Standard. Obama has appointed as head of the National Labor Relations Board a former union lawyer who once wrote that the NLRB could institute something very much like card check without congressional action.
An Obama appointee has changed the National Mediation Board's rules in a way designed to produce more strikes by airline and railroad union members.

Obama executive orders have encouraged unionization by employees of government contractors and the seniority-based promotion practices preferred by union leaders. Obama has granted a 35 percent tariff on Chinese tires sought by the United Steelworkers and, in contravention of the North American Free Trade Agreement, has blocked Mexican trucks from U.S. roads as demanded by the Teamsters Union.

The Democrats' stimulus package includes Davis-Bacon requirements that union wages be paid on construction jobs, which means that the government will pay more or get less production than it would if contractors were free to pay market wages. The complex Davis-Bacon process also means huge delays in getting supposedly shovel-ready projects underway.

And Obama Democrats are trying to force FedEx to become unionized by subjecting it to the same law as unionized UPS.

Meanwhile, one-third of the stimulus money went to state and local governments, with the effect of propping up the pay and saving the jobs of public employee union members. As a result, while 8 million private-sector jobs have disappeared, the number of public-sector
jobs has barely budged.

You can be sure that I will be praying for this young man, and you feel certain the his soul is now in the hands of God, no better place to be. There will always be pain for those in harems way, are wounded or who pay the ultimate sacrifice. The pain is not limited to the soldier, but his or her whole family chain along with those who know them. Spc Christopher Moon will never be forgotten, as you can see, you have already started a process to ensure that he will always be remembered. I buried my father, mother and brother, all at Arlington National Cemetery. Christophder will be in my personal prayers, along with all our fallen heroes and their families. God bless you for the above, and God bless Christopher and his extended family and friends. Milt Gregory, a retired Vietnam Vetllllll

God heard my prayer todayNow I know God hears my prayer’s every day, but today, I really felt he was paying attention to me as I said a prayer for my son who is in serious harm’s way right now, you know, that part of the world where everyone is demonstrating with violence all around. No sooner than I finished my prayer, a simple prayer, that went something like this:“Dear Lord, I know you hear from me every day and I am always asking for so many things related to our troops, my son, and my…Continue

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
