The Future's Not Ours To See…

Doris Day's title song from Alfred Hitchcock's 1956 Oscar-winning movie The Man Who Knew Too Much reminds us of a harsh reality, that whatever will be will be.

Fortunately, we often have tools that allow us to, if not actually change the ultimate outcome, at least influence the path history will lay before us.

This photo from The Sun is a useful reminder that elections have consequences, especially elections in time of war. We should consider with every speech, every newscast, every sunrise that there are a couple of hundred thousand truly evil men in the world who are working every waking moment to bring that war to our shores. That have sworn with their lives to destroy us, you and me and all whom we hold dear.

With them there can nothing for us to negotiate, nothing to discuss.

There are those who know this and those who do not.

Wow... That's an excellent illustration of the point. "The Sun" link goes back to IMBD however.
I'm very tempted to borrow it...
