President Obama Doesn’t Get It

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

Terrorism, especially terrorism launched by followers of Islam. President Obama tends to think it is “suspicion and mistrust” that is the problem. If we all just got together in a big group hug and talked about our feelings all would be well. President Obama, followers of Islam want to do one of two things: Have us all follow Islam or kill us. For them, the choice is ours.

Thoughts on 9/11

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

9 Years ago today, the world changed when planes slammed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the passengers flight United 93 fought back. I still get a swelling of emotions when watching the replays of the day, the towers coming down, listening to the names of those who died recited. Close to 3000 people died that day, innocent lives killed by those who didn’t lose sleep over this for in their eyes none of us are innocent.

One thing to remember is the type of people that launched this attacked, the believers in Islam and the destruction of those that refuse to bow to them, are still out there and would do something like this again if given the chance. There are moderated Muslims, there is no moderation in Islam, remember that.

One thing that irks me today is the conspiracy theory idiots, yes idiots, seem to think this is a great time to remind us all that our government was behind this event. As I said one word describes them, idiots. Take this from Dan Thompson on his Facebook status update today:

“would like to remind everyone to remember 9/11/01. Remember Building 7, remember the black boxes that “disappeared”, remember the lack of Air Force response. Question the “Official Story”, for it is riddled with inconsistencies and outright falsehoods. Remember. We must ask, always: Cui bono? Who benefitted? Remember. And ACT.”

The main thing riddled with holes and inconsistencies is the “evidence” put forth by these people. I could go point by point and show how people like these are off in their statements, with actual evidence, but it would fall on their deaf ears. For those of you that want to take the time to read up on this then check out the article Popular Mechanics did a few years ago on the myths surrounding 9/11. If you are really interested, Popular Mechanics expanded their original article into a book. The Learning Channel also put out a DVD on the collapse of The World Trade Center that is worth watching.

The biggest error the conspiracy idiots, err theorists make is the cherry picking of information. They’ll take 10,000 pages of documentation, hours upon hours of video and audio transcripts, and pick out that one paragraph or 10 seconds of videos that “proof” their case while ignoring the other 99.99999% of the data that doesn’t.

Art Therapy Doesn’t Turn Them From Terrorism?

Monday, December 28th, 2009

It seems releasing terrorists from Gitmo and trying to rehabilitate with “art therapy” doesn’t work so well. I’m glad I wasn’t sitting at the table when this was suggested, I would have laughed myself silly.

Hopefully the government will get an idea of what we are dealing with regarding these terrorists. I’m hope it is before they kill more innocent people.

Janet Napolitano Must Go

Sunday, December 27th, 2009

Every time she opens her mouth it just confirms she has no clue. Listening to what she had to say about the latest terroist attack attempt made my head hurt:

“What we are focused on is making sure that the air environment remains safe, that people are confident when they travel. And one thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action.”

So having the device a terrorist is wearing fail along with a passenger jumping said terrorist is part of the plan? This is like a football coach saying “Okay, after the opposing quarterback fumbles the ball, we’ll scoop it up and run it in for a touchdown to win the game!” Can you hear the laughter if a football coach said that?

Only problem here is this isn’t a football game, it is the life of American citizens. We need someone in the government that can come up with a real plan and implement the plan. Not holding my breath with this administration.
