Just another administration, hellbent on it's agenda and making it's mark. Most would say it has already crossed a line; a line in which none of us expected -- yet others would say it still hasn't done nearly enough. But up until now, it has been somewhat predictable (for those of us who saw this coming).
None of it matters anymore -- not even health care.
None of it matters because last Thursday marked the day where this Presidency really began; all else is social networking and community organizing and fundraising and parties -- now is the time when we will see our President really show up.
...and we all thought he was having trouble with the war in Afghanistan a week ago...
...and we all thought he was questioning the mission, the reasons, the strategy and how in the world he could find a way out, practically since his Presidency began, over the last several months...
... and we all thought we saw a President having a hard time committing to anything more when it came to the war on terror, whether it came in 80,000 more, 40,000 more, or 20,000 more troops, or two...
...we all thought we witnessed a President having a really, really hard time deciding under "normal" circumstances, let alone do so in the midst of a terrorist act on American soil...
And now this.
That was then and this is now, and lest we forget that this President IS still half Muslim (just a fact) -- whether he calls himself Christian today or not. He was born of a father of Muslim faith and IS in part Muslim by birth. He studied the faith. He read the Koran. He went to mosque in his childhood on occasion.
Couple this with witnessing our President dissing America worldwide and we've got issues showing -- albeit HIS issues not ours, but needless to say they may become our issues depending upon how he proceeds.
Well into the aftermath he quickly wanted Americans to refrain, asking us not to jump to any conclusions about what happened at Fort Hood -- but I wonder being as smart as he is -- had he already jumped to a couple himself? Is he positioning himself to the side of political correctness and keeping the Muslim world ingratiated before we really piss them off? Which heritage will he find his allegiance? And for us, how do we find a way to give him the benefit of the doubt today and even give him some room to breathe and respond in a Presidential fashion after so much disappointment already?
This Hasan is a test. And from here on out, we will know just what our President is made of by how he comes to America's side -- for her good favor, for her well being and for her ultimate protection. This is a skill that our Commander in Chief must not only already have, but must demonstrate and truly embody for the strength of a nation and America's future.
Hasan's personal actions and deliberate choices were not just the typical "good American" gone bad, or Muslim patriot going south, or U.S. Soldier going wacko -- these conscious actions fell under the book and beliefs of Radical Islam; there is no other excuse necessary or motivations reguired if you know Islam and what it asks of it's followers.
While the media searches for answers or tries to make the Army libel to any cause or action not taken by the military, castrating it for not seeing this coming -- Americans must stop and pay attention to the dialog and question how this Hasan is portrayed. It doesn't take an Al Queda or Taliban connection to elicit the motivation or support of a single act of terror. It only takes one follower; even if it is only that one and that one martyr standing alone.
On February 23, 1998, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, a leader of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, along with three other Islamist leaders, co-signed and issued a fatwa (binding religious edict) calling on Muslims to kill Americans and their allies where they can, when they can. Under the banner of the World Islamic Front for Combat Against the Jews and Crusaders they declared:
[T]he ruling to kill the Americans and their allies—civilians and military—is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque [in Jerusalem] and the holy mosque [in Makka] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim. This is in accordance with the words of Almighty Allah, 'and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,' and 'fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah'.
Fine Print from G: The above reference is taken from Wikipedia: Al-Queda. I try not to use wiki, but it was right there and I just pulled a jihad and took it word for word; but there are references linked if you feel the need to go back and research some more on your own.
When America finally catches on, just how will our cool, young President respond?
That is what G is waiting for.
I mean really -- everything being what it is, being such a mess and all -- going to hell in a hand basket -- a people becoming so partisan and divisive...what's one more thing like a little terrorist act on American soil? The President will probably use this to his advantage, all that more of a reason to follow him and his administration -- for he can save us.
And looking at the President's track record, he kinda likes doing it all, like yesterday -- why not add this to the mix. Heck,
pondering what he's gonna do right now...ever so slowly... and methodically...yeah, that's it...over a beer no less, yeah yeah, with the basketball game on in the background. Matter of fact, he could probably figure out a way to use this Hasan ordeal as a means to get out of making any troop decisions for quite some time now, why not.
Totally switching gears, you know California is in a heap of doodoo. You know what our State Legislature did over the weekend? They implemented a new payroll tax just like that.
It gets better. You know how much the legislature obligated automatically without discussion (that is without the people) -- a 10% tax hike. That is 10% additional taxes to the already sliced and diced paycheck Californians take home. Hey, lucky for G -- as I don't have a job, right?
And get this, they also claim everybody will get back whatever they take come April. Yeah right! We're so broke, if you believe that then I've got some lovely swamp land in Florida to show you.
Isn't that a riot.
Kind of in the same realm as our President telling us there won't be any new taxes under his 1.2 trillion dollar health care package - - like as if small businesses will be totally safe and that there is absolutely nothing to worry about -- as if. Mr. President, have you ever had to make a payroll or provide health care for anyone other than your family -- in California, Illinois, or anywhere?
Couple California woes and the new Health Care Legislation, our sunny disposition will be long gone; and so will the businesses and taxpayers. We will just pull a jihad, as that seems to be the norm against an overzealous government, packing our bags and bibles to go live somewhere else.
Question is just where...
Middle East is definitely out;
Africa is out;
Europe is out;
Brazil, Venezuela, Honduras never got on the list;
Detroit, New York and Newark are out;
anywhere in America where there are pockets of Al-Queda living and orchestrating their next move is out (you know, nice places like neighborhoods of Chicago, Brooklyn, Queens, Columbus, Seattle, Denver, Atlanta...Silver Spring MD...)
And really, even looking into my own back yard I'm alarmed -- basically all of southern California is a stomping ground for the Al-Queda terrorist network.
By the looks of things and a trip around google earth...I would have to build a log cabin alone in the woods of Alaska to find an Al-Queda free zone; keeping the lights off, of course, so that nobody would find me.
And if you stay with me here, what's interesting is a look at what happened with the lone Republican who voted for Health Care this past weekend-- Joseph Cao.
He chose to dismiss being a financial conservative -- if in fact he is one -- making it personal and not good business when he brokered a deal for his district and neighborhood of New Orleans. Cao let the President twist his arm into socialized medicine no less losing all common sense of showing any fiscal responsibility, apparently allowing himself to be wooed with special favors for his neck of the woods as any pork bellied representative will do if given the chance-- and threw all the rest of America under the bus to do it (in a hurricane no doubt).
Just where were his fellow Republicans working him over begging for his attention and vote another direction? Where was the counter-insurgency pointing Cao to the bigger picture, the larger issues, the life of the American Dream as we know it falling to pieces? Not that it would have made any real difference, the newly pinned congressmen from California and New York put the House over the top while we were amused by the recent Governorship races.
Sure, in America we allow all kinds of people to come here, legally, and settle in to make something of themselves and to build a family. We allow all faiths to come to America's shore for freedom to live under whatever God you choose (or not) -- while this was the cornerstone to our creation as evident by our Declaration of Independence from the tyranny of England.
What doesn't work is when one of those religions chooses to rise up against the very freedom we Americans were given by our birth right -- and Muslims who choose to follow the ways of radical Islam do just that.
It's not time to make nice; it is time to kick these people to the curb and get them out of America. If you cannot live here peacefully under Muslim, Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Baptist, Hindu, Buddhist, or None of the Above faiths, then you must leave. It is as simple as that.
America's jihad was called the Revolutionary War. It's done. Over. Been there, done that.
Mr. President, are you on the side for America and do you have the guts to fight back?
It may be inappropriate, considering the circumstances and we aren't a christian country and all, to ask WWJD; but in a similar sentiment we must ask ourselves what would an American do -- WWAAD?
We will see now won't we.
Make it a Good Day, G
Tell me America is just getting started.
It is the 20 year anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down today;
perhaps it's a good day for America to put one up. Just a thought.
