I made a little visit to Richard Okleberries’ blog, lincolnsblog.com. I have been there before, and have always been struck by the top front page claim, “Highest Traffic Month: July 2007 – 455,257 with 3,542,026 visits in 2007”. Those are extremely high numbers for blog with only several dozen posts spread out over about 18 months. hmmm…
While there, I plucked a couple of quotes for entertainment purposes. This is why I love the permanency of blogging. I applaud Richard for leaving it up.
Richard on Idiots and Peace:
When I see someone with a “Support Our Troops: Bring Them Home” or “US out UN in” sign in their yard, I can’t help think to myself, “what a total idiot.” – Richard Okleberry, March 2006
Richard on Morality based preemptive war:
However, we must not shy away from using our military to enforce international moral standards when necessary. I hope the next time you see an idiotic peace sign in someone’s yard that you remember one thing. While these people say they are against war they are also telling us what they are for. They are for the shooting of women in the back of the head for simply wanting to learn how to read. They are for midnight abductions and rape houses. They are for the torture and murder of political and religious dissenters. They are for genocide in the form of chemical and biological warfare. Richard Okleberry, March 2006
Richard on Military History:
In reality, the war in Iraq has been one of the most successful military campaigns in US history. When averaging the number of US combat casualties per day we find that the Iraq war is second only to the Revolutionary war for the lowest number of combat fatalities per day.

Richard on Choosing a President OR “‘picking your Bible Study group:
As for me, I will likely vote for Mitt Romney because of this reason. I am also looking forward to a national discussion about the difference between Mormonism and traditional Christian faiths because bigotry is a product of fear that comes primarily from a lack of understanding and information. – Richard Okleberry – March 2007
That’s all for now folks.
