Kyl: Doing My Job Would Be Offensive to Christians
Posted by Kelsey Hartigan

About a month ago, Sen. Lugar (R-IN) sharply rebuked members of his own party for attempting to delay the ratification process for New START.  "Every senator has an obligation in the national security interest to take a stand, to do his or her duty. Maybe people would prefer not to do his or her duty right now," he said. "Sometimes when you prefer not to vote, you attempt to find reasons not to vote."

Jon Kyl’s latest excuse to delay?  Working would be offensive to Christians.

"It is impossible to do all of the things that the majority leader laid out," Kyl said today, "frankly, without disrespecting the institution and without disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for Christians and the families of all of the Senate, not just the senators themselves but all of the staff."

New START is a matter of national security.  Every day, the men and women who defend our country do their job.  Jon Kyl and his fellow Republicans should consider doing theirs. 

As Brig. Gen. John Adams explained on Dec. 13th: 

“We have one-hundred-and-fifty-thousand US warriors doing their job over Christmas and the New Year, the U.S. Senate should do its job – and ratify this treaty.”

It's not just national security. There are people throughout the economy who have to work on Christmas day. There are people who work right up through Christmas Eve. There are people who work between Christmas and New Year's. It's just an insult to everyone.

Life is indeed unfair. Still, I believe in karma and the wheel of life. People in the high position should be serving us not the other way around.

No matter what we do and how hard we try, we simply can't please everybody. Sometimes we'll be in a situation where we have to choose between our personal life and our job.
This is a wonderful article. The things given are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.

A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
