Celebrating quietly, sources in Yemin say the terrorist leader and his followers will be released and home in 60 – 90 days. You need to hear the mom of one of the U.S.S. Cole’s slain sailors, Diane McDaniels!
President Obama stopped the prosecution of the terrorists that attacked the U.S.S Cole on Friday. Why? Today, he appears in Elkhart, Indiana tomorrow to sell his boondoggle to the people.
Cannot the media put these two news items together? Is not the tail, wagging the dog again – diverting attention of what’s important by creating controversy?
First and foremost, President obama has chosen Political Suicide; he’s not just disregarding the security of the U.S., . . . . he has put our servicemen overseas, even more in harm’s way!
Sure, the Stimulus needs to be stopped, but right now, it’s the diversion to keep our attention off the important issue.
The captain of the U.S.S. Cole and parents were scheduled to meet with Glenn Beck after meeting with President Obama. . . . . somehow, the meeting was scuttled; Obama’s people insured it did not happen.
Where is the outrage? 17 honorable servicemen died for this? . . . . one million four hundred thousand servicemen put their lives on the line for this?
Our forefathers, fought and died for freedom! The desire, the compassionate emotions for justice and equality came from these intelligent men and women and back then, it was the local FREE PRESS which ignited and fueled the fire in their hearts.
Now, our new president has usurped that emotion, that fire that still calls for freedom, justice and equality but behind the scene is extinguishing it, or attempting to.
Now, the free press has grown to corporate status and has died.
Blogging has replaced it. Rightfully so!
Bloggers though, are lost in a sea of egotistical, self-centered voices, each clamoring to be heard!
It’s time to back off from the trees for a moment and see the forest!
There are things worth dying for!
Putting your life on the line is exhibited by some of our youngest idealists – they’ve signed up, and are putting their lives, our future on the line!
Question is, how do we proffer GOOD change, here at home, while honoring them and their sacrifices! We shouldn’t even need to ask this but we’ve become a fat, self-centered people.
Our chore now, is no different from theirs, . . . our forefathers’. Putting our lives on the line in these polarized times is . . . . not uncommon, if one looks around. I work with hundreds of people who do that – daily. They give of themselves, they put their lives on the line and their resources at risk, they work tirelessly, they sacrifice and inspire me and others!
Because of working with them, insight has gifted me an almost miraculous understanding of theirs and our forefather’s dedication . . . .
- Like them, I am not alone; I am the profile of a citizen, governments of the world, fear.
- In the Eric Hoffer sense, I am a true-believer.
- I have found what is worth living for, therefore I have discovered it is also worth dying for.
- I live in a country where it is legal for me to carry a gun.
- I believe peace is possible.
- I believe justice and equality are possible.
- I know evil exists.
- I realize those statements contradict, and I have chosen which side to stand on.
- During Viet Nam, I was wrong; I didn’t stand there, but now, I’m proud to stand with our servicemen.
- I believe that government is a collection of us, and we reside with a purpose to do what is right, but . . .
- I have also learned that “Power Corrupts”.
The way it looks to me is President Obama offers us the Asian Psyllid of hope . . . . an unseen insect that destroys an entire economy.
It’s the partisan disease of massive pork spending, . . . . enslaving future generations!
It’s even worse; all this while insuring a lack of protection for the homeland exists, exactly what President Obama swore on Lincoln’s bible, NOT to do.
America wanted a change; what we got was a Queen!
Is it that King Obama has allowed the Harry Reids, the Nancy Pelosis, the Barney Franks and Chris Dodds, to run away with this, or was it his plan to later be able to blame them? Many experts say it will sink America! Osama doesn’t need to do it; our president is!
Is this to be President Obama’s legacy – the man who reigned over America when ? ? ?
What he is creating, is an escalation of hate that far exceeds what the Bush Administration experienced!
Only one month into the presidency, and this, what our eyes were to be diverted from, could be the death knell for our new President – a self-inflicted, Political Suicide. One can take a lot of positions in America and find the clash or cultures will split us right down the middle, but you mess with our children, our servicemen who sacrifice for us, . . . . you put them in even more danger, . . . . you may as well reserve a place on the trash-heap of history, right there alongside former President Carter.
If you cannot hear the outrage building Mr. President, you’ve got the football game turned up too loud!
