Get over it!

Here's me, handing out radios in Koh Band district Monday. The radios are hand-crank-operated for two reasons: 1.Many Afghans can’t afford batteries nor do they have electricity. 2.Batteries are often used in making IEDs Afghans don’t worry about “compromise,” they’re just happy to receive help.

Okay, first, let me give the mandatory disclaimer:

Now then, where was I?

Tonight’s post is called “GET OVER IT!”

I don’t get to watch as much news as I used to lately. (I don’t have a television in my hut or my office, and the internet connection here is pretty unreliable.) But, from what I can gather, it seems there is increasing focus on our Commander in Chief and his tendency to “compromise.” I’m upset by this.

Some think that by displaying a tendency to “compromise,” rather than take a firm, hard stance on something, our country is showing weakness and opening ourselves up for criticism, attacks, and other negative encounters based on our inability to “stand strong” like we have done for so many years.

Isn’t compromise what we’re SUPPOSED to do to get results when people disagree? I know it pains some people to admit it, but they can’t deny it’s true.

I guess some people think America is not the same ever since our Commander in Chief took office. I agree.

GET OVER IT!
