Denial is the Enemy

"Denial kills you twice: once because you are physically unprepared at the moment of truth and might die in the incident: twice because you are psychologically unprepared and, even if you physically survive, you are likely to be a psychiatric casualty when your 'house of cards' collapses."

--Lt Col. Dave Grossman, On Combat

Denial seems to be the modus operandi of so many people these days, and of our government. Political correctness is a house of cards, global warming is a house of cards and making excuses for Islam - house of cards. The stimulus, too. America's financial health, I could go on.

The truth is uncomfortable. Denial is the enemy.
