Winners Never Cheat, Go Ducks!

Our suggested reading for Cam Newton, the SEC and the NCAA:  Winners Never Cheat by Jon M. Huntsman.

 

 

5 star Being morally right makes might – in more ways than you might think! 2009-04-29
Many ethics courses taught at business and law schools across the country for the past decade or so have focused on the idea of “situational ethics” – a Machiavellian concept that supports no objective “right or wrong” only contextual circumstances that define “right and wrong” for a specific moment in time. While that may be interesting for theoretical discussions, it has little place in the real world and business leader Jon M. Huntsman would agree. In his breakthrough book titled – “Winners Never Cheat” – Huntsman point blank states that there are overriding moral principles that need to guide our work and lives. Huntsman is chairman and founder of the largest privately held chemical company in the world. He writes that he built his career and fortune on ethical principles including accountability; integrity; addressing the needs of others; honor; sacrifice; personal responsibility and teamwork. Soundview highly recommends this book because Huntsman provides many examples where he personally made difficult, moral decisions that (he argues) always turn out to be the right decision in the long run. Every organization would be well served by reading this book and putting it into practice.

Lynn Woolsey: A National Embarrassment

Reps. Waters and Woolsey advocate for love

Lynn Woolsey: A National Embarrassment

My nephew, Lance Corporal Lee Morgan, will be deploying to Afghanistan next Friday. This will be his second tour of duty there. Lee will be putting his life on the line, once again, fighting a war which is described by Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) as “an epic failure, a national embarrassment and a moral blight.”

While my nephew is risking his life to fight the war on terror, Ms. Woolsey is exercising her right to polish her moral vitae’s (on the backs of others) by blithely passing judgment on what the Obama administration has re-defined as merely an “overseas contingency operation.” Ms. Woolsey’s right, by the way, has been granted her by the blood of Lee’s compatriots and all the other brave young men who have died in service to our country.

Spitting on the graves of those that have died in their nation’s service is just one of the rights secured to Ms. Woolsey by the blood and sweat of others. A free press is another right. The same press that has maintained a deafening silence about this war, ever since it became Obama’s war. The same press that reports Ms. Woolsey’s inane pronouncements without offering vital context.

Though Ms. Woolsey makes ten times the money my nephew does, he is the one who does the heavy lifting. He is the one on the front line, braving Taliban bullets and following orders. Ms. Woolsey, on the other hand, spends her time, along with fellow democrats, improvising insane rules of engagement which make his job much more dangerous. She is also busy ensuring that terrorists are given the same rights as the Americans they are so intent on killing.

Ms. Woolsey, courtesy of our complacent media, is given the moral high ground. Lee is given, well, nothing to speak of. Not even the thanks or appreciation his sacrifice and service deserves.

Ms. Woolsey, by virtue of her office, is given the status of “expert.” Lee is given the task of ensuring she has an office.

While Ms. Woolsey fashions catchy sound bites, Lee is engaging in real life fights. To the death. Lee could be killed. Ms. Woolsey can only be shamed – if the left hadn’t outlawed shame.

While Ms. Woolsey advocates for “love, not war,” Lee is tasked with the actual job of facing down Taliban fanatics in their own back yards. Lee won’t be making love anytime soon. He’s too busy protecting the right of idiotic politicians to mouth 60’s slogans as they preen in front of cameras, patting themselves on their own backs for exposing the “moral blight” of all that nasty violence. Ms. Woolsey is evolved. Lee is just a grunt Marine.

Though ignored by the media, over 1,449 of our our soldiers have died in Afghanistan to date. An additional 1,400 marines are now being sent to counter an increasingly aggressive Taliban offensive. A Taliban that can only be encouraged by Ms. Woolsey words.

It used to be a crime to offer aid and comfort to the enemy. That was in the days before political correctness, when we were allowed to actually identify our enemies. Now, Ms. Woolsey’s words, and the words of her fellow leftists, comfort our enemies. And encourage them to double their efforts to kill my nephew.

One can disagree on the reasons for our current war, oops, engagement, with Afghanistan. But to publicly voice the sentiments Ms. Woolsey has, while we are so engaged, amounts to treason.

Ms. Woolsey would wet her pants and turn tail in terror if she came face to face with a Taliban terrorist. Luckily, she has my nephew to ensure that she will never have to face that unpleasant reality.

She has the luxury of opining from a safe distance. A distance afforded her by my nephew’s bravery. To her, this “engagement” is cause for embarrassment. It offends her morals. As she did with the Iraq war, she has pre-ordained failure. As happened with the Iraq war, she will once again be proven wrong. And once again, she will not be held to account, or embarrassed. Her fellow leftists will likely exercise their rights in order to re-elect her to public office.

I don’t hate Ms. Woolsey. I have only contempt for her. I’m embarrassed that she is in a position to speak for America. And I feel sorrow for all our fighting men who have to endure the scorn and vitriol of those that have ordered them to lay down their lives for what they have pre-ordained as “an epic failure.” For shame.
