Miracles

Posted on September 10, 2012 12:52 am

Some of the things we encounter, when we sit and think about them, are kinda like miracles.

Your reading this, for example. Some guy from Georgia is typing on a nonexistent keyboard on a device that just a few years ago was science fiction and you’re reading it.

Add to that the fact that I’m currently around six miles above the Atlantic Ocean, south of Reykjavik, Iceland, as I type and publish this. Kinda amazing, ain’t it?

But, the reason I’m where I am is another miracle: I’m going to visit my 13-day old grandson. He’s not my first grandchild, but he’s my daughter’s first child, and the only one I’ve not yet held in my arms. He’s the latest little miracle in the family.

These things, whether they are the latest advances in technology, or a natural process that’s been going on since life appeared, are among the miracles we encounter every day. But, the latest advances in technology pale to the oldest processes of nature. Typing on an iPad on the Internet while in flight on an international airliner is really cool. But getting to hold my new grandson? Now that’s cool!

That little miracle … he’s important to me. I want him to have a better life than I’ve had … and mine’s been kinda nice. I want him to grow up in the greatest nation on earth, and I want him to not wonder what the hell his parents and grandparents were doing, allowing a bunch of jackasses tear up the country, either by design or by ignorance.

So, I want to use the latest technological miracles to help make life better for my latest little miracle in the family. And, I want you to do the same.

This election is important. We’ve had four years of ignorance and incompetence in the White House. That’s four years too many. But, we can do better. I believe in America, and I want my grandchildren to grow up in a better America than I grew up in — and the one I grew up in was pretty awesome.

November is important. And so is our children’s … and our grandchildren’s … future. Don’t let the Democrats keep screwing it up. And hold the Republicans accountable.

    It’s like realizing you need to hire an accountant, but he’s a drunk. If you can keep the guy from the sauce, he’ll get your books turned around.

    Meanwhile, Obama can’t work an iPhone…and he ate a dog.

  9. Fly says:

    Amen! Think of the children! (in a non-sarcastic way)

    Beautiful post, Basil.

    Basil, if you want your grandchildren to “grow up in the greatest nation on earth, and I want him to not wonder what the hell his parents and grandparents were doing, allowing a bunch of jackasses tear up the country, either by design or by ignorance”, then encourage your kids to home school their kids. Otherwise the educationindoctrination system will get hold of them and turn them into jackasses who support those who tear up the country, because they will be ignorant, and incapable of critical thinking and analysis.

    Basil, you darlin’ man. Congratulations. As the veteran of now 10 grandchildren under the age of 6 I can say without guile that the work I did within the walls of my home was the greatest service I could do for the world. I raised 6 upstanding, taxpaying, producers and they are raising their children in the same way. Some one said “no success can compensate for failure in the home” and I agree wholeheartedly.

    You have an awesome trip. Kiss that baby at least once for me (I do love babies) and beware of the out of body experience that watching your children parent their children can sometimes bring about.

    Bless you and yours.

    Congratulations, Basil!

    So, I take it that you will be reading Frank J.s books as bedtime stories…

    Congratulations!! Enjoy your little miracle–oh, and your grandson too ! (“Ya’ see what I did there ?!?!”). Take care of the newest Nuker !!

    […] with my youngest grandson. He was born in Germany last year when his father was stationed there. I had the chance to visit when he was only a couple of weeks old. I saw him in July at my birthday when they moved back […]
