Success comes IF

My kids had to memorize this poem for school. That was the first time I heard it and I thought it was probably one of the most powerful poems I have ever read.

IF - by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,But make allowance for their doubting too;If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,Or being hated, don't give way to hating,And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;If you can meet with Triumph and DisasterAnd treat those two impostors just the same;If you can bear to hear the truth you've spokenTwisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,And lose, and start again at your beginningsAnd never breathe a word about your loss;If you can force your heart and nerve and sinewTo serve your turn long after they are gone,And so hold on when there is nothing in youExcept the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,If all men count with you, but none too much;If you can fill the unforgiving minuteWith sixty seconds' worth of distance run,Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

2008 Election - The Most Important Issue

With the election in full swing, I wanted to make clear that this election has only ONE important issue that must be addressed, everything else depends on this one issue. What issue is this? It is NATIONAL SECURITY. We can spend all day debating whether or not we should have government healthcare (socialized healthcare), fair tax, abortion rights, etc, however, one important factor is that there is no need depating any of these issues if we have no country!

Some may think, wow Wayne, that is quite alarming and that is just a scare tactic. For all of you that think this I challenge you to read Glenn Beck's new book, An Inconvenient Book.
