Posted on 09/23/2007 3:11:25 PM PDT by radar101
I took some time off from serious news and politics for few days following my last post. The American media did too, but thats not unusual. When I tired of the newest chapters in the sad lives and times of Orenthal James and Britney and the ensuing solemn discussions about his guilt and her fitness to raise children, I thought Id poke around and see if there was anything else important and deserving of my attention - other than football. I found some things interesting and telling. I may meander a bit, but Ill eventually arrive at a point.
Orenthal still hasnt found the real killers and according to the liberals, we still havent found those doggoned weapons of mass destruction. That is, unless you count the chemical warhead that exploded and killed the Iranians and Syrians attempting to arm it atop a Scud C missile that has a range of 300 miles. The explosion spread VX and Sarin nerve agents and mustard blister agent around the complex where it occurred. Their deaths were agonizing, I assure you, unless they were killed outright by the explosion. A tiny drop of VX or Sarin will kill you. The symptoms of nerve agent poisoning are rather gruesome although some of them, like violent retching, are similar to those experienced when hearing about the tribulations of Orenthal and Britney. Blister agents do as advertised to both your skin and respiratory system. Coughing up a lung becomes more than a figure of speech. Not to worry, though, Im sure these weapons are for peaceful purposes- insecticide maybe.
Iran boasts that it has 600 Shihab-3 missiles aimed at Israeli cities and at United States sites located inside Iraq. It begs one to wonder about the types of warheads on these missiles doesnt it? It is just a reminder for you that Iran is led by a Holocaust denier with a death wish that believes Israel should be wiped from the map. This should raise concern amongst sane people, which excludes much of Washington, DC and practically all of academia. We are allowing this terrorist boss who advocates genocide and provides weapons and training to people who are killing American Soldiers in Iraq to come to our country. Killing Americans is not new to the Iranians. Theyve been accomplishing it through proxies for practically 30 years. The leader of a country who stifles free expression by beating and humiliating young men for the dastardly act of dressing or acting Western is getting the opportunity to address students at Columbia University. Columbia is one of our prestigious centers of higher learning Im told.
It costs parents $46,095.00 a year for Columbias fatalistic liberal indoctrination of their children. These are the same indoctrinated spoiled brats who practiced the freedom of expression and tolerance they learned from Columbias professors and their parents when they disrupted and prevented a presentation from the Minuteman group.
There was another interesting piece added to the axis of evil puzzle. The recent Israeli air raid in Syria was to take out nuclear material supplied to them by the North Koreans. I wonder if they wanted to put their peaceful nuclear pursuits on top of their Scuds. We should ask Congressman and Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich to address that with them on his next visit to Syria while he berates our country to a terrorist boss.
If you look around, not much of what I just shared, except for the Iranian admiration society meeting at Columbia has received much coverage in the mainstream of the U.S. media. The media decides for us that Orenthal and Britney are the important news that we need to hear about, while the threats of Syria and Iran apparently are not. Unfortunately, most of America is just along for the ride.
Weve already observed the Speaker of the House showing more respect to a Syrian terrorist boss than she does to the President of the United States.
We are ill informed by our so-called news sources and our politicians answer to the move on crowd instead of to their voting constituencies, but heres the straw that broke it for me. Last week there was a resolution before the Senate. At the end of it, Senators were asked to make one simple affirmation. The important part of that affirmation, which you also do not hear discussed in the media, is in bold letters.
b) Sense of Senate.It is the sense of the Senate
(1) to reaffirm its support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, including General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq;
(2) to strongly condemn any effort to attack the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces; and
(3) to specifically repudiate the unwarranted personal attack
Akaka (D-HI) Bingaman (D-NM) Boxer (D-CA) Brown (D-OH) Byrd (D-WV) Clinton (D-NY) Dodd (D-CT) Durbin (D-IL) Feingold (D-WI) Harkin (D-IA) Inouye (D-HI) Kennedy (D-MA) Kerry (D-MA) Lautenberg (D-NJ) Levin (D-MI) Menendez (D-NJ) Murray (D-WA) Reed (D-RI) Reid (D-NV) Rockefeller (D-WV) Sanders (I-VT) Schumer (D-NY) Stabenow (D-MI) Whitehouse (D-RI) Wyden (D-OR)
If you cannot affirm your support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, you do not deserve a seat in the United States Senate and you most certainly are not suited to fulfill the role of Commander in Chief.
Discovering what is left out of the news and listening to and observing politicians has left me to wonder about who speaks for me. Who speaks for our Soldiers? Who speaks for our country? Who speaks for you?
After today as a K.C. Chiefs fan this guy speaks for me.
I’m okay with Duncan Hunter speaking for my nation, most reaonable voice of reason out here at this time!
I speak for me. It’s not like my senatards, the original Pair of Boobs, are going to do it on any sort of consistent basis.
Oh, and while I’m speaking for me...I think this would be a better world if we could summarily shoot the “Leave Britney Alone” guy and anybody who parodies him. I’m just sayin’.
Duncan Hunter says plenty for me.
