We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!
Do not let the victims of the attacks on New York and Washington, nor the brave members of our Nation's military who have given their lives to protect our freedom, die in vain!!
There are two news items in The Washington Post, which seems to pride itself in journalism more to the taking of the Pravda that existed prior to the fall of the Soviet Union--maybe they're reminiscing, but that's another rant, of import this morning. Both of them were printed in an almost, oh, what the heck, absolutely gleeful attempt to besmirch the accomplishments of this Administration.
The first story deals with the fact that the two thousandth combat death occurred in the war. The second noted the passage of the new Constitution in that country, drying indicating the Sunni population nearly defeated the proposal in the plebiscite.
The war news is reported with the bias not toward the necessity of accomplishing a mission, but rather the pain that it is causing at home. The plebiscite story is along the slant of "well it cannot possibly work because some oppose it.
And from this comes a microcosm of all that is liberal.
It is truly a sad issue that 2,000 people have given their lives in service to their country in Iraq, these are valuable human beings who had bright futures, but who chose a calling higher than themselves and committed everything they had--quite literally--to that belief. The Post does an extreme disservice by focusing not on that, but on the pain their deaths have caused loved ones.
What a truly selfish proposition on the part of the paper, and media as a whole. These people know their loved ones have passed, but to focus on their pain, rather than reassure them the cause--the advancement of freedom and representative democracy, particularly to an area that had known neither--their sons and daughters subscribed to was noble and worthy of the highest praise.
Nope, cannot have that. To accomplish that would be to give credence to the Bush Administration. Their blind hatred toward the man and everything he stands for is truly the defining point in the American political discourse. What is interesting, is even if Mr. Bush told the Nation right now that he was evacuating Iraq, media would be critical of that as well. It would be at this point it would be considered a noble enterprise.
Thus they are caught in a trap, a confine of their own making. They cannot see outside their prism because the total internal reflection of their hatred and their biases prevent it.
But to place it solely as hatred toward President Bush misses the point. There's more, far more. It has to do with liberalism itself. The liberalism not of Thomas Jefferson or the Democrats of old, but the selfish, condenscending form that has taken control of the left today.
It is only a selfish person that would focus solely on pain and suffering without paying attention to the great accomplishments that have taken place. Only selfish people turn inward to feelings rather than assess with reason and humility the occurrences taking place around them. Only selfish people would callously invoke others as proxies in the fight for their beliefs.
Only selfish people would focus on death rather than the building of new hope for others that are living.
Thus we turn to the second story. The Washington Post could not have avoided reporting on the success of the Iraqi plebiscite in establishing the organic law of that nation, but they could bury it in the paper (which they did) and they could caption the news bullet with subtitles, which they did also. The subtitle told readers clearly that Sunnis nearly defeated the referendum.
So? What's the point? After all, they did not defeat the referendum. The paper, however, chose not to focus on the new dawn of representative democracy in Iraq, and the hope that will instill into people in that Nation that differences can be resolved by deliberate debate, and not precipitous gunfire. Media types did nothing to highlight the possibilities of progress, but chose to do all they could to point out the possibilities of doom, a death to the new Iraqi Republic.
This is a stunning proposition when you reflect on it. It means media outlets, by and large (some excepted, such as Fox), have taken the position that our enemy is more enlighted, and thus more worthy of supporting, than America.
Now, where have we seen that before? Think back, way back--because it is way back now. Vietnam.
The children of the sixties, content with self-indulgement, have come to adulthood, and are now well enconsed in our media. With them comes the views of peace, harmony, and love. But one must be careful--it is not a view of peace, harmony, and love toward others; no, it is a view of peace, harmony, and love FROM others to ones own self. It's the kumbaya, don't mess with my carma, let me be view of the world.
But once one sits in one's own world and chooses not to look out, one dies. One has to die because the view of what to live for is no longer there. Trapped in the total internal reflection of that prism, it is not possible to see hope and praise for the future, because everything is now, and if it is not now then it doesn't exist because it cannot exist. The carma and kumbayah notion cannot be satisfied, and the self-indulgence suffers, resulting in pain. And pain it is that the liberal suffers because he cannot see any other way being trapped in his own suffering reality.
But if the view of the world is that of pain, then everyone must come to understand that view, that there is no happiness. Thus media outlets report not on the hope that is Iraq this morning, not on the gallantry of our soldiers committing to a high and noble calling of freedom and justice for all regardless of where you live in the world, but on death and dispair.
Liberalism, the faction of death.
Aren't you glad your a conservative?
For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.
Good morning, Chair! Excellent opening essay!
G'morning Chair. Excellent assessment of the media.
Great opening, Chairman.
MOST excellent opening!
Wonderful opening essay, Chair, and so timely. Thank you.
Very chilly start to a Wednesday morning. 39 !
Good morning. Cold here too. It feels good because we can dress for it appropriately. When we were in Florida, the last two days it got very cold and we only had our summer clothes. This is why I'm not in love with traveling :-)
Neets, good to see you today.
Chairman, that is an excellent opening. I'm going to read and savor it several times thru out the day. Thank you!
It doesn't matter Chaor. Great opening anyway.\t
I'm off to breakfast with the conference, bbl.
Hoisting themselvs on a borrowed Petard Chron Watch on the Left
Nita, how is R doing?.
We go to settlement this Friday on the new house. I sure hope it doesn't rain next week when we are moving and the fence is being installed for the pups!
Yes, cold and damp here too. I'm trying to ignore it. LOL
Thanks for the start! You've made such excellent points.
I detest the media. Evil doers.
Bump for later reading (and savoring, since you found them, Molly!).
Anyone want to mention that in determining what the language of the new nation know as the United States of American, the English language beat German by one stinkin' vote? By today's liberal standards, it is a clear call that the USA can't possibly work.
"...Members of a grand jury that no-billed DeLay have told reporters that Earle was angry with them. DeGuerin also has focused on media reports that Earle's office telephoned former members of the first grand jury to indict DeLay, asking them if they might have returned other charges, and then presented the results of the poll to a third grand jury, which issued new indictments."
I was thinking about Redleg Duke the other day also.
My son has met a young man his own age that takes his scouting very seriously. He is just a great young man, and a real blessing to the group of kids that pal around together.
Thank you Chair. You write what a lot of us think, but you do it with such a wonderful vocabulary.
Good Morning All. WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY! It's in the 50s, and the air is DRY. kassie, how is it down your way?
Where is john, I haven't seen him lately.
And this is from the media presstitutes who scream and cry racism if someone takes on Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.
>> I'll have lots of help
Each day you should go to the Jeff City Mall,, don't know the name, but I'm sure they have at least one.
Go to Dillards or whatever upscale Dept Store they have there. Proceed to the Cosmetic Dept. Find the men's cologne testers and sniff them until you find one that smells like soap, pull open the neck of your shirt and give yourself a good squirt (ONLY ONE SQUIRT!!!!). If the clerks ask if they can help you, tell them you're about out of cologne at home and you need to see how the fragrance 'wears' on you.
Do this every day you're there.
It's called CHICK MAGNET. (No that's not the name of a cologne, altho it probably should be!)
Your rant is spot on. I'm gonna ctrl+c/ctrl+v it to my CR club.
How's the weather up your way?
Plenty of sunshine down here. Several counties are under a no burning ban. So very dry here.
Just wanted to let you know, your dad and family are in our prayers.
I'm still alive, by the way! Midterms are finally over!
Thanks for stopping by. We miss the younger perspective on issues of the day when you don't stop in.
You scoundrel, you.;^)
JOHN sKERRY: It will be hard for this administration, but it is essential to acknowledge that the insurgency will not be defeated unless our troop levels are drawn down, starting immediately after successful elections in December.
Hmmm... Let me see now...
If we retreat and surrender, we win.
Yep. I get it.
That's great news.
Stock is cooking. I'm washing, sanitizing, and de-spotting all 75 plates, glasses, and flatware sets. I'm also washing and ironing the decorative napkins and refolding them. Although I may just do them rolled restaurant style. Tonight we go to the Commissary and get most of the food, and I'll start marinating and prepping tonight. This is a lot like work.
I am trying to re-focus and stick to business today. Had a huge to-do list, have already knocked off all items but one. I'll tackle that after my walk.
Apparently Fitzgerald has put out the word that there will be no indictments today. Media disappointed once again. Fox has switched to scaring us about Bird Flu.
I suppose the liberals are as disappointed about that as they are excited about the death of our 2000th hero. :((
