ARLIN REPORT QUOTE OF THE DAY


johnkerry

“NOBODY EVER SAYS NEVER, BUT MAYBE SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY SHOULD.” 

Secretary of State John Kerry was just named by Foreign Policy magazine the most ineffective (worse) Secretary of State in 50 years.    The magazine would appear to give Hillary Clinton too much credit.

 

THE LOSS OF TWO GOLF LEGENDS AND GENTLEMEN


Thank you Billy

My favorite pic of Mr. Charlie Sifford

Thank you Charlie

I remember watching Mr. Casper play golf when I was a boy growing up and when I took up golf.   A Hall of Famer and a true gentleman.  Gary Player and Arnie were my favorite, but Mr. Casper always seemed to be in their shadows, right on their heels.  I never heard anything bad about Billy…..he is a great role model.

We also lost Charlie Sifford this past week.   Like Billy Casper a true gentleman.  Golf is known as a gentleman’s game; these two men (professionals) are the perfect example of what this game represents; sportsmanship, honesty and fair play with a competitive spirit.  They also taught us how to enjoy the game, if we were paying attention; Charlie with a cigar, he always brings a smile.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA …..LEFT, LEFT TO THE LEFT..

An actor has an auto accident, is in the hospital with injuries for a week or two…..you get updates on their condition nearly everyday.  When they are released all in one piece the bulbs are flashing and the video is running, we hear about it for days.  If Labron James were  to twist an ankle……OMG!

Soldiers come home missing limbs, severe deformities, PTSD, cameras not at the VA hospitals, mainstream news media gives us nothing.   Media caters to the elite…….soldiers are from the middle and lower classes of our country, just peasants and servants appreciated only by the same.

TEN POINTS TO PONDER


The author is unknown; a friend shared this with me and others, I thought they would be good to  share.

They are like the Ten Commandments to follow in life all of the time! 

1 Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout our journey.

2 So why is a car’s WINDSHIELD so large and the Rear View Mirror so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.

3 Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few minutes to burn, but it takes years to write.

4 All things in life are temporary. If they’re going well, enjoy them… they will not last forever. If they’re going wrong, don’t worry… they can’t last long either.

5 Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

6 Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, friend, it’s just a bend, not the end!”

7 When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

8 A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied, “Yes, losing your vision!”

9 When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

10 WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES… it takes away today’s PEACE.

If you really enjoy this, please pass on to others. It may just brighten someone’s day… Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.
