What America Needs Now, and Needed 7 Years Ago

Something I posted on a forum I frequent- It was in regards to some 12 - 22 year olds (yes that wide of an age range) clamoring about the state of America, and how it is all Bush's fault, and how "the light will come this November" (yes, someone actually said that.)

I felt the need to write back, and I just kept writing. It may not be all that well thought out, it may not flow, but hey - neither does my thought process.

When the Obamabots and Bush haters are finished jerking each-other off at the mere thought of November, perhaps a real point or two can see some light.
(oh, and excuse my vulgarity)

The America Vs. Rome is a good point to bring up, but I fear that the two are apples and oranges and cannot truly be compared.

What we need to focus on is very simple, keeping our citizens safe.

September 11th, 2001 saw one of the most brutal attacks on American soil since Pearl Harbor. In an effort to preserve our union and keep our nation safe, many steps have been made (in the right direction) not only to prevent future attacks, but also to punish those responsible.

If you would all please take note of the simple fact that there hasn't been an attack on American soil since 9/11. Obviously something is being done right.

We have thwarted several terror plots since then, and we have kept American citizens safe. Yet "citizens" actually have the gall to criticize the government, and even threaten them with talks of overthrowing and impeachment.

These "citizens" seem to forget that pretty much everything that the current administration does has to be ratified by their beloved democrat controlled Congress. They also seem to forget that Congress also has the power to vote down with a simple or 2/3 majority (I forget which at the current moment, forgive me), any of these issues that they seem to have a problem with.

These are the people who are more concerned with the rights of criminals, terrorists, and people who downright want to destroy us, than they are with keeping America safe.

During the Cold War they would be deported, or arrested. During the late 1700s- early 1800s, they would be tried for treason under the Alien and Sedition Acts.

These are the people who will burn our flag, one of the most sacred symbols of freedom, and embrace a presidential candidate who refuses to wear it, salute it, or pledge allegiance to it.

They hide behind their freedoms, but they see no problem with ripping down the government that protects it. They spit on the soldiers who fight to defend it, and they cry oppression whenever it is remotely taken away.

I bring to the attention of the forum United States Code Title 50, Chapter 3, § 21, which is still in effect to this day.

Whenever there is a declared war between the United States and any foreign nation or government, or any invasion or predatory incursion is perpetrated, attempted or threatened against the territory of the United States by any foreign nation or government, and the President makes public proclamation of the event, all natives, citizens, denizens, or subjects of the hostile nation or government, being of the age of fourteen years and upward, who shall be within the United States and not actually naturalized, shall be liable to be apprehended, restrained, secured, and removed as alien enemies.

0847, September 11th, 2001 this Code should have been enacted to the fullest extent. We should have then began deporting anyone who was here on a Student Visa, anyone who was here illegally and not a citizen, and perhaps even as far as to those who possessed dual citizenship with any hostile nations. At the same time, our borders should have been closed. We should have been completely isolated.

All of those above outlined actions would be 100% legal as per US Code Title 50, Chapter 3, § 21, yet the same people I spoke of earlier would be clamoring and crying out against such an action.

It is for your protection, it is for your freedom, it is because you don't know any better.

I love how the average American citizen (mostly college students) feel like they know more than analysts with actual real world experience (including in times of war), how they feel that they know what is right for the nation, compared to legions of Generals, Analysts, Intelligence Officers, as well as countless other leaders.

Sir Winston Churchill once said that "the best argument against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter" (slightly paraphrased), and I couldn't agree with that more.

So you all can worry about health care, social security, gay rights, abortion rights, legalization of marijuana, and things of that nature, because when we ultimately meet our demise sometime in the next 4 years because the terrorists and hostile nations of the world exploit that fact and destroy us; it isn't going to matter anyway.

"Unconventional wars are won by unconventional means" and likewise "Unpopular wars are won by unpopular means"

It is unfortunate that some "innocents" may die, but that is the choice that the enemy has made when they chose to hide among them for protection, and use them as cover for their tactics. I hate to be cliche, but in order to make an omelet, you need to break a few eggs. War is hell, there is no denying that.

We need to use their tactics if we want to beat them.

We aren't able to use their tactics here in America. Just look at the backlash from the "torturing" that "occurred" at GITMO. Look at what happened after 'Nam. Our boys came home to be spat on and called baby killers and condemned by the American public. We are not allowed to use their tactics because of the views of the American public, a few million people who for the most part have never seen combat, never had to make a split second decision to save their own life and the lives of those around them, hell probably never even had to defend themselves or their loved ones. And these people unfortunately have the power to dictate how our men and women overseas are to fight the enemy.

It is for that reason that I hold no respect for them. The funny thing about public opinion - if you are opposing it, chances are you doing the right thing. (brings me back to my point about the uneducated American public vs. military and political leaders and analysts)

Unfortunately, those who actually have the power to make decisions are too afraid of the public outcry to make these unpopular decisions and methods.

If our enemy is going to give a 12 year old an AK and tell him to ambush our troops, then our troops should have no qualms about shooting a 12 year old, and the "Starbucks Generals" (as I have dubbed them) should have no right to criticize. When was the last time they put their life on the line defending this nation?

Our enemy will not discriminate based on age, gender, race, religion, etc... neither should we. That is the first step in winning any conflict, that is a step in the direction of using their tactics.

War is not pretty, war is not supposed to be. War is the most primal form of conflict between two beings. Our enemy has only one thing in mind, and that is destroying us at all costs, including their lives, and the lives of innocents (because that is who they are after).

110th Congressional Approval Rating Falls to Single Digits

Rasmussen Reports - Congressional Performance

For the first time ever, in recorded history, the US Congress has fallen to a single digit approval rating. Coming in this month at a measly 9%, the 110th Congress has been doing the worst job in the history of all 110 Congressional congregations.

Not only has the approval rating fallen, but the percentage of American voters who say Congress is doing a Poor job has risen to the majority (at 52%).

Can they truly blame Bush for everything still? Not really, but they sure as hell will try. Meanwhile if you look to the facts - Bush has accomplished the majority of things he promised to do during his presidency. Congress has accomplished none of theirs. They have made little to no effort to do what they spend the majority of their time "discussing" - how to pull us out of Iraq.

Since this congress took control in 2006:

  • Gas Prices have more than doubled and risen to over $4 a gallon
  • Our Troops are still overseas in an "unconstitutional war" (according to them)
  • The housing crisis is still in full effect
  • Illegal immigration is still a huge problem

While Bush was in power:

There has not been a single terrorist attack on American soil since September 11th, 2001

I think America has a deluded sense of who is doing something right and who is doing something wrong, but clearly given this month's approval rating they are finally wising up.

Obama: Jews are kikes, blacks are n-bomb

New Yorker Article On Obama

2nd Page, 2nd Paragraph

He went to Columbia University, and liked New York, but he found the city’s racial tension inescapable. It “flowed freely,” he wrote in his memoir—“not just out on the streets but in the stalls of Columbia’s bathrooms as well, where, no matter how many times the administration tried to paint them over, the walls remained scratched with blunt correspondence between niggers and kikes. It was as if all middle ground had collapsed.”

Only a totally blinded Obamabot would claim that this is "taken out of context". Regardless of the context, we generally hold our future presidents to be a little more classy than to use words such as those. Would it have been a stretch just to say Jews and Blacks?

Also to those of you who are ever so quick to claim the website is slanted - news flash - I just cited the original article from The New Yorker which really isn't all that conservative.

If this is the hope and change Obama is calling for then I think he can count out a lot of his potential supporters, and I think it is ironic how they can claim he is their new messiah basically and will stand behind him while he has made these kind of remarks, but will chastise and march against any other person (not even candidate) who dares utter such words.

I can only hope that this gets out there a little bit more so that there is a chance that Obama loses the Jewish vote because they too can finally see him for what he really is - an unpatriotic empty suit who refuses to salute or even pledge allegiance to the flag and is really only out there for himself, with an unpatriotic wife who was never proud of her country until they voted in favor of her husband. Are these really the kinds of people we want in the White House?
