A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Excite News: "But Biden, a potential 2008 presidential candidate, found little grounds for agreement with Bush as he criticized the administration's handling of Iraq and preparedness for a potential terrorism strike. The senator said if he had known how incompetent the administration would have been in running the war, he might not have voted for the resolution authorizing the president to use troops in Iraq."

There is so much wrong with Biden's statement that you don't know where to begin with it. It means that unless you know the future, you can't make decisions; and it also means that whatever decision you make you can excuse yourself because of some unknown event in the future. This is why the doctrine of predestination is absolutely necessary for the freedom of the will. No one can be held responsible for his actions if blind luck controls events. If our future is not in the hands of God and everything under His personal control, then we will always have an excuse for our bad choices. Man is the victim of unforeseen events and the bad actions of others. How can I be responsible when others are such jerks? Whatever happens cannot be my fault. Others have screwed up the works. The world is a stinking place.

But then, manliness is the enemy, isn't it? Weinies can always whine about what they didn't know and excuse themselves, if not by blind bad luck, then by the stupidity of others. Blame, blame, blame. It just ain't my fault.

Success is by luck, not by good choices. Failure is victimhood. Whine, whine, whine. Start the sad music for Sen. Joseph Biden and all the wimp who support him.
