Are You Safer Now Then You Were 4 Years Ago?
Are You Safer Now Then You Were 4 Years Ago?
Barack Obama seemed concerned 4 years ago about how the
world viewed us after 9/11 and the end of the Bush Administration. Today the
picture is very different, the President has pandered to the “Arab World” and
surprisingly or not, nothing much has changed. Obviously President Obama’s
“hope and change” campaign didn’t impress the Muslim nations, and why would it?
Warring factions within their own religion swear violence
within their own people. Violence as we know it has no bounds in the Islamic
religion, the murder continues unabated throughout the world. Obama continually
claims that Islam isn’t our enemy and yet terrorism by Islamic terrorists
continues at a scale unfathomable just 12 years ago. We are no safer than we
were just 4 years ago, in fact the world is a far more dangerous place to live.
Civilized people see discourse voiced in the way of protests.
Muslims see discourse voiced in the way of murder. Disagree with the western
world lop the head off a Jewish reporter and show it brazenly to the media.
People on the left see the world through rose colored glasses and through
politically correct eyes and encourage coexistence and patience. Meanwhile in
the real world people are dying because the enemy hides amongst us and pretends
to be our friend further entrenching the militants into our society.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens had a utopian view of the
world stage and trusted Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton………..he thought world peace was obtainable. The problem was that he was
Ambassador in one of the world’s worst Islamic hot spots of the world. The
pictures of his dragged corpse are hard to take and the politically correct
factions in America say “take those pictures off Facebook we are better than
that.” Unfortunately the path we have chosen to this point so far has yielded
the result we got yesterday………..death to the civilized world. The pictures are
hard to take yes, but they are yet a grim reminder that the rest of the world
doesn’t play by our rules.
So the question is……do we continue to placate the barbarian
attitudes of the Middle East or do we fight back? Do we continue down the path
of allowing the Muslim World to set our foreign policy? Hillary merely repeated
the same old talking point that liberals have used since Carter………….”it’s just
a few people that perpetrated this crime.” Or do we actually stand up for
something and say……….”it’s NOT ok to indiscriminately kill people.” And
furthermore, future actions like this will be met with swift and deadly force.
America is tired of being the punching bag of the world we
are tired of the demands in the UN of 56 Muslim controlled countries. We scoff
at the appointment of Muslim countries to the UN Human Rights Commissions. Regardless
whether or not they are radical extremists or run of the mill Muslims, they
exemplify EVERY human rights violation possible.
We NEED new leadership in this country, one that sides with
Israel, one that recognizes human rights violations when they see it. We need one
that recognizes the sanctity of life, and one that respects everyone equally
not just the Islamic people.
Fifties something guy, with a political view, but not in your face with it. Don't ask my opinion about politics if you don't want it, but I don't start conversations about it when meeting you for the first time. I have so many interests, that I don't pigeon hole into one catagory. I have written a book, and been published, it's about the care I gave my parents in their last years, it's a story of love, care, and dedication.
“Even sadder that so many of us are so blind and stupid, just living our lives daily and letting "smarter" people 'run' our lives."
"Thank God for people like you.”
“This is so horrible....how can one be so advanced and so naive at the same time..”
“Well if you were a politician, you would have my vote. I have a great deal of respect for intelligence...especially when I agree with most of your thoughts, almost visions."
"So many things 'we' stood for are getting lost and no one seems to be taking notice.”
"Your ideas, and thoughts are well researched, great job!"
"I really felt like you are really ‘in tune’ to what is really happening…so I ‘depend’ on your wisdom.. "
"Thanks for sharing all your findings Al. You have been such a big help with my decision. I knew in my heart that McCain should be our leader, but you sure made me all the more convinced…and the people I have forwarded your emails to feel the same way, I’m sure. I still think you ought to ‘run’ for an office, open some eyes around here"
I just want to thank you for being such a great American. I have always been interested in politics but now that I have a son, I really am quite interested. And to be honest, I really feel for him and what he is going to have to put up with in the future. My one saving grace is the fact that when I was his age we also had an awful President in office and fortunately the Great Ronald Reagan came riding in on his horse to save us. Hopefully in 2012 someone will come swooping in and save us. I appreciate the posts that you put on letting the world know of the crimes that most of the press won't let the world see. Well I am just in one of those moods tonight and I am rambling on but I just wanted to thank you. I would always love to get more involved in politics and if there is ever a place that you think I could come in and help please don't hesitate to ask.

My Personal Beliefs ( so you know where I'm coming from)
I believe, that the United States of America is the best country in the world bar none.
I believe, the founding fathers wrote the Constitution of our country based on their belief in Christianity, and encouraged the practice of all religions but not at the expense of the others.
I believe, the Supreme Court should interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.
I believe, the Constitution is a legal document, and not a living document subjected to constant change.
I believe, the course to peace is based on strong military, strong principles, and not a pacifist denial approach.
I believe, the second amendment is the right of every citizen in our country, and people not guns are the cause of murder.
I believe, in the death penalty as a form of public compliance to our laws.
I believe, a declared “hate crime” should not just be limited to describe the victimization of one race, or religion, but should be applied equally.
I believe, taxes are necessary to run our country and benefit our citizens, and not to give to foreign governments to “buy” friendships.
I believe, the government should have no right to tax a dead man’s estate on money he has already paid taxes on.
I believe, the President should have the power of the Line Item Veto.
I believe, that Senator’s and Congressmen should have term limits the same as the other elected officials.
I believe, that Senators and Congressmen should eliminate the word “entitlements” from their vocabulary.
I believe, that taxation in our country is disproportionate according to annual salaries, and serves to polarize citizens within the system.
I believe, “Affirmative Action” is neither affirmative nor action, and should be eliminated, as it’s just another form of prejudice.
I believe, that “pork barrel” or “earmarks” should be eliminated, as they are detrimental to budgetary constraints of our country.
I believe, in a balanced budget amendment with the exception of a declaration of war.
I believe, that if it’s so easy to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for a Presidential Position that pays $400K a year, then the amount raised should be taxed.
I believe, in governing our own country, and never handing power of a New World Order to the United Nations for any treaty.
I believe, to insure the safety of our citizens, we need to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration, and hiring laws.
I believe, that English should be formally declared our official language, and should be used in business dealings at home, and English should be taught in school systems to mainstream students.
I believe, that immigrants to our country should be made to assimilate to our culture, and not the other way around.
I believe, global warming is a reality, but to declare that man made emissions are the main cause, based primarily on computer based models, is akin to believing that weathermen can predict next week’s weather based on a “preponderance of evidence.”
There is one areas I don't agree with the official Republican Platform:
I believe in Gay, and Lesbian Rights
I do not believe in same sex marriage though
I want to welcome everyone to my blog site. Everything you see is my opinion only. As we all know some sources are better then others, and when I see them as questionable, or open for conjecture, I back them up with another source. However, unfortunately, sometimes even these sources can be wrong, and if that is the case, I apologize. When researching a subject, my aim is to find the truth, and the facts and links to back it up. I don't take a position lightly, I research first and form an opinion from the collection of facts. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my research, because not everyone can devote the time to do this.......... because this work represents hours of time invested, if you copy and paste an article please insert a link back to my blog. Thanks again
