House rules overlooked

A guest does not have the same privileges as the owner of the house. No matter if they bring millions of dollars with them as a gift. They are not allowed to snoop around the house. As a host you will make your guests comfortable and make reasonable efforts to secure their safety, but the guest can not demand those things.

As a guest you accept the rules of the house and those of your host. As a host you have to make sure who you are inviting into your home. You should not invite guests who will harm the occupants of your home. The host should look at the character of the guests and not at the gifts they bring.

Our government failed miserably at this. They looked at gifts and not at the bearer of these gifts. They put the occupants – its citizens – at a great risk. The first and foremost obligation and concern of the master of the house should be its occupants – its citizens – and not the guest. A guest should be checked and tracked.

We’d all like to know where bin Laden is. He sent us these horrible guests. Maybe Ashcroft is hiding him in his basement, taking Bible classes – just kidding.
