Hezbollah is Brilliant - But Here's How to Defeat Them

I saw this news story the other day where officials from Hezbollah are quoted as saying that they didn't expect such a strong reaction from Israel...

Well DUH?

I don't think they would have kidnapped the soldiers if they knew Israel would try to completely dismantle them.

Quite frankly Hezbollah's tactics are Brilliant! They are so tightly integrated into the country that anyone who attacks them looks bad.

However, Aaron Brazell over at Technosailor has a brilliant solution to defeat Hezbollah without harming innocents. Click here to check out how he would use Web 2.0 to defeat Hezbolah.

I would definitely pursue Aaron's plan if I were President.

You took the Words Right Out of Mouth - Middle East Peace?

I have been trying to come up with a way to give my thoughts on the topic of the current situation in the Middle East. Well, I found an article that pretty much sums up my feelings on the Mideast Peace process:

In other words, it's in no way, shape, or form Israel's fault there isn't peace in the region. I think Israel is done being held hostage by terrorists in the region.

PS. If I were President I would not be enjoying this. Imagine having to stand up to the world leaders at the UN and tell them their wrong!

Weird Strange Creepy Thing Just Happened

I got home from work and wanted to check out in the front yard to see something, so I looked out our peephole and...

It was blocked. It turns out someone had put gum on the peephole. Now it was probably just a kid, but it gave me a real creepy feeling. Apparently, a little bit before I got home, my wife said someone rang the doorbell, but she was busy nursing so she didn't get it.

My thought is that if there is gum on your peephole don't answer it!
But that's just my thought...

What do you think?

An Ipod for Everyone!

Yesterday, I mentioned that my eight year anniversery was Monday. Well, I was shocked by the anniversery present Jill got me...


I am SOOOOOO LOVING IT! I listened to a podcast on my way to work today, it was great. She bought me a 30GB ipod and a really cool converter that allows me to listen to my ipod through the speakers in my car by brodcasting the podcast using an FM radio signal.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you Jill for my new ipod I love it! If I were President I would give every citizen in the country an ipod, because IPODS are way cool!

Maybe I can get some backing from Apple for my campaign...

Happy Anniversery to Me - My New Campaign Slogan

Monday marked my eight year wedding anniversery with my wife Jill.


It's been an awesome eight years!

You know, eight years of marriage is kind of like being in office for two terms as President. In fact many past Presidents have had similar results to mine in their first two terms of office.

During my first two terms (8 yrs) of marriage I have accomplished a lot:

  1. I increased our spending on education (we have five wonderful kids all of whom we homeschool)

  2. I have managed to both increase our debt and increase our expenses (something every good President does)

  3. I have mastered the art of political spin (turning a pumpkin bran muffin into a cup cake is good spin)

  4. I have decreased our taxes (we pay practically no taxes because of all the children we have)

  5. I have made inpsirational speeches (ie. "Ask not what your Dad can do for you, but what you can do for your Dad")

Looking back on my first two terms of marriage makes me think that maybe I should run for President. My campaign slogan could be:

"Vote for George Manty - Two succesful terms of marriage... just imagine what he can do for this country!"
