Don't Feel Lonely

Today, Rasmussen reports that 71 percent of likely voters are angry at the federal gov't. Why in the world could this be happening, with our first post-racial president firmly in control of the massive ship of state?

It can't have anything to do with the White House completely dismissing anything that doesn't fit its template, like Climate Gate, for instance.

It can't coincide with Obama bowing down to every world leader except the Queen of England and the Israeli prime minister.

It couldn't be that some of us were miffed when Obama denigrated hundreds of thousands of tea partiers and his flunkies branded our entire movement as an arm of the republican party.

It surely can't be because Obama insists on giving terrorists the rights of citizens.

It can't be because the best of our military personnel are brought up on charges for bloodying a known terrorist and killer.

It isn't because we are having socialized medicine crammed down our throats.

It must not be due to Holder insisting the gov't honor contracts with ACORN after the group has proven itself to be totally corrupt and determined to put dems in office by any means necessary.

There are other items I could mention but the fact remains that no rational person could have any idea why almost three quarters of America is riled up about our present administration.

Wait, I know. It must be that fear mongering Fox News . . .

Proud To Be An American

Here we are, living in the neutered, apologetic reality of Obama's transcendent reign, a place where gov't control is good, America is bad, and independent thought and self-reliance are sure ways to get yourself tagged as a knuckle-dragging conservative.

In the world created by Obama and his liberal fascists, America's best have charges filed against them for capturing known terrorists and killers, admitted terrorists are granted ad hock citizenship and allowed to put the U.S. on trial, and political correctness allows fanatic Muslims to commit mass murders.

Is this what the majority of us voted for? Is this who we are as country, a place where our president bows to world opinion and foreign leaders but attacks a domestic new agency for not spreading his liberal rhetoric and denigrates citizens who disagree with his policies?

What depths we have been reduced to.

On So Many Levels

One of the things that hacks me off the most about Obama's decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in NYC is the sheer duplicity of the maneuver. It's all just a shell game.

Leftists get to thump their chests and claim that, as Americans, we most show the world that we are no respecter of persons (or our own Constitution) by granting Constitutional rights to foreign, admitted terrorists. The mainstream media, of course, isn't telling us the whole story.

Funny how Obama picks and chooses which terrorists he grants a day in cart. Almost like he had an ulterior motive. No, surely not. We all know that our president is running the most transparent administration in history.

Not much hope and a whole lotta change.

Higher Math

If there are 1.57 billion Muslims in the world and only 1% are ready and willing to commit violence against unbelievers, how many potential terrorists does that leave? That's higher than I can count, whatever the number is. (BTW, 1% is a total arbitrary number which I pulled out of thin air for the purposes of this example.)

Whatever the precise calculation is, include Nidal Malik Hasan in that final number. Politically correct types want to say that post-traumatic stress disorder had crawled off of his patients and embedded itself in its brain; mental disorder by association, as it were.

The fact of the matter is that he attended the same mosque at the same time as two of the 911 hijackers and spoke glowingly of its radical imam.

Hasan shouted "God is great" in Arabic as he started shooting unarmed soldiers while standing on top of a table to have a wider field of fire.

There are plenty of stories on news sites about how Hasan had net postings glorifying Muslim suicide bombers, how he was put on probation for trying to convert patients and coworkers to the religion of peace during his post graduate work, how he believed that Muslims should rise up against American soldiers in our current Middle East conflicts.

People need to understand that we are living in a post-911 world, where adherents to a radical religious belief feel that Americans and Israelis are less than human and must convert or die. It's not the world we would have preferred but it's the one we have to start dealing with.

How Many Will Notice?

Major Malik Nadal Hasan, the primary shooter involved in the Ft. Hood killings earlier today, has far more in common with the Islamic terrorists we are fighting against than the men and women of the U.S. military he was going to be fighting beside.

It is not yet clear whether or not Hasan was part of a terror cell or whether there was more than one shooter. Whether he acted alone or singly, this was an act of Islamic terrorism - no matter how much the media tries to obscure the fact.

Of course, Obama and the MSM can never admit that radical Islam is among the greatest foreign threats we face today. Obama doesn't even think the murders at Ft. Hood are worth mentioning until two and half minutes into his speech. His arrogance and disdain for the military become more obvious every day. Disgusting.
