Rant from common man
I know that if I would just write more often I wouldn’t have to write as must, but I can’t help myself. Here are a few common man’s opinions on current events.
On Arizona and racial profiling: First, the Arizona law does not encourage racial profiling,.it prohibits it. I am so sick of all the malcontents and their liberal talking points. The Arizona law allows a peace officer the right to ask ANYONE for their immigration status AFTER they have stopped them legally for some other reason.
There is no racial profiling in the law. I am sure that most of the people discovered in Arizona to be in this country illegally would be from Mexico, not because of racial profiling, but because Arizona is filled with Illegal immigrants from Mexico. I am sure the officers would be more than happy to discover Russians, Germans, Chinese, etc, in Arizona illegally, but for some reason there doesn't seem to be a blight of other nationalities invading our borders by the thousands every day. It appears that they are consistently from Mexico and Central America.
While we are on the profiling issue, and just for the record, I don't have a problem with racial profiling. I prefer it to our current outdated and ridiculous method of random selection where grandmothers, infant strollers, and others on the list too long to mention, get searched by some idiot with unlimited authority. Authority to run their hands between your wife, mother, and daughters legs and breasts, while fearing to question, or even look at, the burka wearing muslim who refuses to lower her veil.
This insanity is called Political Correctness, and is responsible for turning Americans into cowards. Cowards afraid to stand up in defense of common sense and common decency. It resulted in the 9/11 muslim terrorist entering our country, attending flight school, and flying jumbo jets into the WTC. It also resulted in the killing of 13 people and the wounding of 39 more by Nidal Malik Hasan at Fort Hood on Nov.r 5, 2009.
Now the never ending confusion by our “leaders” like Joe Lieberman is once again exposed when he stated "Our Senate committee's 14 month investigation of the Fort Hood killings has concluded that the Department of Defense and the FBI "collectively had sufficient information to have detected Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism but failed both to understand and to act on it."
They didn't fail to understand it, they understood it all too well Mr. Lieberman! They also need if they made a stand they would be accused of being a "hater"... "racist"... "Islamaphobe," or any other number of slanderous titles ALWAYS screamed by the liberal left and those of their ilk.
Among other things, the report notes that a FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force had learned Hasan was communicating with a suspected terrorist and flagged his communications for "further review."
A second task force, however, subsequently dismissed the evidence and "dropped the matter rather than cause a bureaucratic confrontation...meaning being labeled as described above.
Let me make this clear for all those folks who seem to have a hard time following a path involving common sense and rational thinking. THERE ARE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO WANT TO KILL YOU SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE AN AMERICAN. They could care less about your bleeding heart social reform programs, or your protest against profiling. They welcome your continued insanity.
The communist started their internal attacks on our freedoms before WWII was even over. Their infiltrations into our institutions of higher learning with socialists, old school communists, and social reformers has been an outstanding success. I would submit they have accomplished more damage to our Republic by affecting the education of our children in the ways of socialism than an open war or nuclear bomb ever could have done
The past few decades the threats were believed to be socialism, communism, and Marxism. Today it is Islam and the radical extremists who want to see the entire world under Muslim domination, and don’t take it from me. You can look it up yourself, the internet is covered up with examples. Here's a little sample from the "horses mouth" if you will, an excerpt from the Muslim Brotherhood, "The Whole world shall be brought into submission to Allah.
The Political One World Government will be the Islamic Caliphate. "; or perhaps from the Koran, "Believers, if you yield to the infidels they will drag you back to unbelief and you will return headlong to perdition. . . . We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. . . . The Fire shall be their home", or perhaps, "Believers, do not seek the friendship of the infidels and those who were given the Book before you, who have made of your religion a jest and a pastime."
I will say this now, so I don’t have to hear any of the petty slanderous allegations later about my hating Islam. I do not hate Islam. I do not hate any religion. I do not hate any person because of the color of their skin. I try not to hate, period. There is a distinction here that should be easily explained and accepted. I am an American. I am proud of my country; my heritage; my religion; my freedoms; and all that American stands for. I love my country, and I love my God. Being a Christian does not mean that I have to accept terrorism.
It does not mean I have to sugar coat my words. I do not have to accept those religious extremists who seek to destroy Christians and Christianity because of we are Christians. I reject that just as I would reject destroying Muslims simply because they are Muslim. It’s the bad guys I don’t like..
This is what happens when America gets soft...when we lose our true leaders and have only hypocrites, bureaucrats, and community organizers as leader. This is what happens when we push aside hard men capable of making tough decisions for limp-wristed liberal incompetents incapable of leading a Christmas parade, much less the strongest nation on the planet.
So far our "leaders" have only been able to lead us deeper into to debt; weaken our military; attempt to destroy our system of free enterprise capitalism; and apologize to every petty third world dictator, sheik, amir, and potentate across the globe.
This Nation was created under the protection and guidance of God, our Father to be a world leader. Like it or not, we are charged with the responsibility of protecting freedom. We are bathed in the blood of tyrants, despots, and petty third world dictators who dared to challenge freedom. Hundreds of thousands of brave Americans have stepped up to defend all that we hold dear, and just so the liberals might be exposed to just what is required, here's an example, and try to remember this is one of thousands of Medal of Honor recipients:
BOBO, JOHN P.
Rank and organization: Second Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, 3d Battalion, 9th Marines, 3d Marine Division (Rein), FMF. Place and date: Quang Tri Province, Republic of Vietnam, 30 March 1967. Entered service at: Buffalo, N.Y. Born: 14 Feb. 1943, Niagara Falls, N.Y. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Company 1 was establishing night ambush sites when the command group was attacked by a reinforced North Vietnamese company supported by heavy automatic weapons and mortar fire.
2d Lt. Bobo immediately organized a hasty defense and moved from position to position encouraging the outnumbered marines despite the murderous enemy fire. Recovering a rocket launcher from among the friendly casualties, he organized a new launcher team and directed its fire into the enemy machine gun positions. When an exploding enemy mortar round severed 2d Lt. Bobo's right leg below the knee, he refused to be evacuated and insisted upon being placed n a firing position to cover the movement of the command group to a better location.
With a web belt around his leg serving as a tourniquet and with his leg jammed into the dirt to curtain the bleeding, he remained in this position and delivered devastating fire into the ranks of the enemy attempting to overrun the marines. 2d Lt. Bobo was mortally wounded while firing his weapon into the main point of the enemy attack but his valiant spirit inspired his men to heroic efforts, and his tenacious stand enabled the command group to gain a protective position where it repulsed the enemy onslaught. 2d Lt. Bobo's superb leadership, dauntless courage, and bold initiative reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the U.S. Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.
2nd Lt. John Bobo could have been evacuated. He could have abandoned his position, but he chose to stay to protect his Marines, knowing he would die if he did so. 2nd Lt. John Bobo did not die in vain in a foreign land. He gave his life for us, for his fellow Marines, and for his country.
The problem today is there are too few 2nd Lt. Bobos in the world and way too many agenda based, self-serving beta males, more concerned with public opinion polls and re-election than doing the right thing. They are too afraid to stand up for our freedom and defend our Constitution. They bend to the will of the vocal minority in an attempt to appease their way into office one more time. They strive for Political Correctness.
Now, if your still with me, let me pull it all together for ya! We can secure our borders now, or pay the price later. We can reclaim our place in the world now, or pay the price later. We can get control of the outrageous government spending now, or pay the price later. We can get weak-willed professional politicians out of our Government now, or pay the price later.
We can once again be a free, strong nation, born in blood and fire of our war for independence, or we can continue to follow those illegitimate imposters who call themselves leaders. Personally I am sick of the politically correct rhetoric and all those who spew it in the name of progress. This sort of progress offers no hope for the future.
Rant over...for now.
