Well I refused to think that Governor Perry was bowing out.

I feel like, the establishment is trying to make Mitt Romney the Leader of the GOP. Now I learned that Rick Santorum supported Mitt Romney in 2008, I feel like Establishment is doing all they can to make Mitt Romney the one.

They are trying to ignore Rick Perry, by brushing him off, like he is not a contender, I hope and pray the Tea Party people that are called Leaders will clue in and see what some of us Tea Party people that are on the outside are seeing.

Well Let's keep praying for Governor Rick Perry,

So what Gov. Perry stumbled with his words, I am quite sure if you watch carefully you will see other Candidates  stumble their words too.

So Let's Cheer Governor Perry on because Governor Rick Perry is the one with the most experience.

Isaiah 40:30-31

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall. 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will walk and not be faint.

Texas Guardsmen Warn of Iranian Influence in Iraq


Texas Guardsmen Warn of Iranian Influence in Iraq

Military analysts and Middle East experts have spent years warning about the growing influence of Iran in Iraq. A group of Texas National Guardsmen watched it firsthand.

As one of the last U.S. units to deploy to Iraq, the Texas Army Guardsmen told congressional lawmakers in late November the Iraqi army still struggles to disseminate intelligence and manage logistics, leaving their soldiers vulnerable to outside influence. Iraqi soldiers spend weeks by themselves, without supplies or relief, on posts dispersed across the Iran-Iraq border.

“The malign influence that exists there now will probably continue to be there after the U.S. military leaves,” said Army Maj. Gen. Eddy Spurglin, head of the 36th Infantry Division, who headed the Texas Guardsmen that returned this summer.

Spurgin and his soldiers didn’t witness the kinds of brash power plays that Iran’s military leadership has made in the past two weeks -- naval exercises near the Strait of Hormuz, and warning that a U.S. aircraft carrier must never return to the Persian Gulf.

Iran has threatened to close the Strait in the past, and Pentagon officials vowed again Tuesday that U.S. Navy warships will continue their deployments. But this year, for the first time since 2003, the U.S. no longer has soldiers on the ground in Iraq to stem Iran’s influence there.

With the Iranian-backed Shia Dawa party controlling much of Baghdad and southern Iraq, Spurgin’s unit of 700 Guardsmen witnessed the small pieces of economic and political influence affecting the Iraqi government and army.

For example, Army Brig. Gen. William Smith, 36th Infantry’s deputy commander, said he worried the Iraqi army’s shaky logistics system would open up doors for Iranian agents to gain favor inside army operations.

Iraq’s supply chain still works on a paper system that depends on approvals from officers as senior as generals for supplies as basic as tires. That’s in addition to the reality that Iraq has no system in place to deliver supplies to units in the field from the country’s only depots, located at Taji.

So if an Iraqi army unit needs tires for Humvees in Basrah, for example, that unit must travel all the way to Taji to pick them up. Of course, it’s rare for a unit commander to approve such a trip because it shows he’s failed as a leader if his unit needs new tires, Smith explained.

“It’s part of the military culture we’re trying to change over there,” he said.

If soldiers can’t depend on their army to supply them, they must look elsewhere. In many cases, they turn to supplies smuggled over the Iran border.

Those smuggling efforts included the ingredients to build improvised explosive devices. Iran’s special operations unit, known as the Quds Force, trained many of the Iraq militia members who execute the smuggling operations inside Iraq, Spurgin said.

The Texas soldiers didn’t focus solely on advanced military operations out of Iran. In a briefing to a Texas congressional delegation on Capitol Hill, the Guardsmen explained how something as simple as groceries allows Iran’s government to gain power in Iraq.

Iran is flooding Iraq’s markets with goods at much cheaper prices than other imports, leading other countries’ suppliers, in places such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, to not bother to sell in Iraq. Those supplies allow Iran to control southern Iraq’s markets and thus its stomachs.

“It really means more than you might think,” Smith told Republican Rep. Mike Conaway, a member of the Armed Services Committee. “It’s really going to be a big problem for them in the future.”

The Iraqi army also continues to struggle to set up its intelligence network, Spurgin said. The soldiers don’t have an effective, decentralized system to spread information securely and efficiently across the country.

When asked by Conaway if the Iraqis could protect their borders from an external threat such as Iran, he bluntly said no. Spurgin told the congressman the Iraqis could not defend against an invading force.

“Operationally, the Iraqi Army has the ability to provide internal security of their own country, but they’re not ready to defend their country from an external threat,” Spurgin said.

Rick Perry: Iowa caucuses only the beginning of 'marathon' GOP race

By Paul West

1:47 PM CST, January 2, 2012

Reporting from Sioux City, Iowa


Facing weak poll numbers and the very real possibility of a bottom-tier finish in Iowa's kickoff caucuses, Rick Perry on Monday likened the 2012 Republican presidential contest to a marathon that was still in its first mile.
Speaking to supporters in the faux-rustic lobby of a modern hotel near the banks of the Missouri River, Perry said the early stages of a long race are often misleading, and he predicted that other candidates would "hit the wall" later on.
A distance runner before being slowed by back problems, the Texas governor said, "I finished my marathon, and I expect to finish this marathon as well." He said conservatives "don't have to settle for something less than what your values are."
Perry predicted that "every day that goes by, we're going to get stronger," and he called himself the only GOP contender who could combine an outsider message with, "more importantly," an "ability to raise the money to go all the way through."
His upbeat comments came in response to a question from a supporter, who remarked that Perry was "down in the polls" right now and asked what the governor could do to make his candidacy more appealing to voters who want to get behind a winner.
The intense media attention surrounding the caucuses, and a proliferation of public polling that comes out almost daily, has many activists focused on the issue of electability in a year in which defeating President Obama is the most important issue for many GOP voters.
Perry, whose poor early debate performances hurt him, perhaps irreparably, repeated his line about not being the best debater but being so eager to take on Obama in the fall that he would show up early for the debates.
A group of prominent Texans, including state lawmakers and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, joined Perry for the closing hours of the Iowa campaign. They will be traveling along with the candidate, his wife Anita and their two children in a caravan across the most conservative half of the state.
Perry is making three stops in western Iowa on the last full day of campaigning for the caucuses. His final event Monday will be in Perry, Iowa, about an hour northwest of Des Moines, at the meticulously restored Hotel Pattee.
In keeping with what has been so far the most memorable aspect of the Perry candidacy -- verbal gaffes -- the day began with Mike Skaggs, a local Perry campaign leader in Sioux City, thanking the crowd of about 100 or so "for coming out to see the next governor of the United States."
He was followed by publisher Steve Forbes, a Perry supporter and former GOP presidential candidate who finished second in the 2000 Iowa caucuses. "It's my honor and privilege," Forbes said, "to introduce the next president of the United States."

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.
