We don't pray for the land. We pray for the humans all humans... starting with the president Mohammed Morsi and all officials and for God to give everyone wisdom and responsibility to manage the affairs of this country and its people in true Egyptian spirit.
Officials at the White House are saying that President Bush hasn't changed his schedule much since the war started. The main difference they say is that he's started watching the news and taping Sponge Bob.
The chief internal enemies of any state are those public officials who betray the trust imposed upon them by the people.
I intend to travel to Okinawa and to visit with Okinawa officials and the citizens of Okinawa at an early date. I will send my best analysis of that situation including the local attitudes back to Washington to the government there.
The recent fascination I think reflects the shift in approach by law enforcement officials to embrace technology as wholeheartedly as the rest of the world.
I really think that elected officials should be focused on how you create sustained economic growth how do you create jobs and all of these issues that made people - segments of our society believe are really important are diversions politically.
American officials have bent over backwards to show how sensitive they are to Muslim culture. It didn't seem very effective. They seem to be worried about winning the respect of other people.
You know for many elected officials they all started in the same place. You know marriage is between a man and a woman but they understand that they are moving inevitably catching up to the American public.
While 45 of the 50 States have either a State constitutional amendment or a statute that preserves the current definition of marriage left-wing activist judges and officials at the local levels have struck down State laws protecting marriage.
Having federal officials whether judges bureaucrats or congressmen impose a new definition of marriage on the people is an act of social engineering profoundly hostile to liberty.
By the fulfillment of my legal and moral duty I think I have earned punishment just as little as the tens of thousands of dutiful German officials who have now been imprisoned only because they carried out their duties.
In places where marriage's core meaning has been altered through legal action officials are beginning to target for punishment those believers and churches that refuse to adapt.
While there continues to be differences the important point is that all citizens and elected officials use democratic and legal avenues for solving those differences.
Foreign Ministry guys don't become agents. Party officials the Foreign Ministry nerds tend not to volunteer to Western intelligence agencies.
The resistance of policy-makers to intelligence is not just founded on an ideological presupposition. They distrust intelligence sources and intelligence officials because they don't understand what the real problems are.
That U.N. Security Council resolution requires getting Syrian troops and intelligence officials out of Lebanon so that the Lebanese can have elections here this spring that are free and fair and free of outside influence.
When elected officials abandon our environment and ruin our natural resources public health is endangered. I know the importance of providing a clean environment for our children I have attended more than one funeral for a child who has died from an asthma attack.
Most of the provisions designed to fix what ails our health system don't kick in until 2014 which one wishes administration officials had noticed is two years after he has to win an election.
If the law is upheld only by government officials then all law is at an end.
Ours is a government of checks and balances. The Mafia and crooked businessmen make out checks and the politicians and other compromised officials improve their bank balances.
Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials but the voters of this country.
For most Americans Friday afternoons are filled with positive anticipation of the weekend. In Washington it's where government officials dump stories they want to bury. Good news gets dropped on Monday so bureaucrats can talk about it all week.
Bad officials are the ones elected by good citizens who do not vote.
The debt-ceiling vote isn't about what will be done in the future it is about the integrity of America's commitment to support the bonds we issue. Elected officials have an obligation to maintain that integrity regardless of whether they voted for the programs that required the borrowing in the first place.
