This week’s column is going to brand me as just another agent orange crazed Vietnam Veteran, or a patriot – you decide. One way or the other, I’m going to speak my mind.
The truth is I have had just about all I can take of our government, talk show know-it-all’s, and liberal college professors explaining away or placating every radical or “victimized” group for the sake of political correctness and some mythical nice existence and cohabitation. What am I talking about? Look up the list of groups the CIA keeps of which they deem worthy of watching (keeping an eye on us), if you don’t believe me.
I’ll oblige you, the discriminate reader and believe me, if you are reading this, you are in the minority, as no one reads anymore: “environmentalists; business groups; labor unions; churches; ethnic groups; political action committees or PACs; health groups; education groups; civic groups; youth groups; transportation groups; agricultural groups; veterans groups; women's groups; reform lobbies.”
In their own words about these groups, “This entry includes a listing of a country's political, social, labor, or religious organizations that are involved in politics, or that exert political pressure, but whose leaders do not stand for legislative election. International movements or organizations are generally not listed.” In other words, we are the enemy, or might be and need to be watched closely.
Our government is watching us because we might be the enemy. If it wasn’t true, it would be comical.
Our government and our news stations have instilled in our country a fear of everything when they are supposed to do just the opposite. Thanks to them, we are afraid of dang near everything. Terrorism, crime, drug cartels, Mexican gangs, contagions, child predators, traveling abroad, not having enough money in retirement, costly health insurance, hurricanes, flooding, drunk drivers, bullies, bedbugs, and thanks to shrewd marketing - constipation.
I’m sick of it. I say bring it on. Let’s take ISIS or ISIL or whatever the current group of cowardly Islamic terrorists want to call themselves for example. If they come here and are caught, let’s execute them. Let’s don’t give the privilege of a high-priced New York lawyer and use tax payer money to let them languish themselves for five years. Let’s stand them against the wall with their weapons and explosives and shoot them.
I am sure the government would have to hold a lottery due to the high number of Veterans and patriots willing to do the act. What? You think this is barbaric? Don’t you know our history? That Jihadist Major Nidal Malik Hasan was caught in the act of murdering his fellow soldiers yelling “Allahu Akbar” and as a US Army officer sworn in under the Uniform code of military justice should have been executed for being a traitor.
Because he is a traitor in every sense of the definition.
When you swear the oath into US military service, you wave your Constitutional rights and are under the UCMJ. Our country has become so screwed up that we can’t even honor military law without fear it might offend someone.
Ask ANY Veteran and they will tell you the same thing. In military jargon, which I cannot repeat, suffice it to say it is a supreme insult to the honorably serving military. It is as if the enemy of our country gets the protection of our government and don’t even get me started on Benghazi. Having first Hillary Clinton, then John Kerry represent our country internationally as Secretary of State makes me absolutely nauseous and I am a Vietnam veteran with two tours. As an American, I despise them both.
If our troops can’t count on our government to back them up – why are they serving? I will tell you why if you don’t know. They serve because they believe in America. They believe we are still the greatest country on earth. They believe somehow by serving, they can make a difference. They can’t. Our military in the hands of the current administration are disposable pawns and this has been proven by the President’s lack of a viable solution to withdrawal – something he promised if elected.
I am asking our government to stop trying to save the world and save America. Stop killing our kids. Quite meddling in everyone else’s business and begin to rebuild this country that was once great. The Middle East will never become friends and any drunken fool can see this, so why keep killing our boys and girls over something we cannot and never will fix?
We have a porous border that leaks like a 5 gallon can after being shot with double-ought buckshot and we are chasing people all over Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria like it will make a difference? Hogwash. Secure our borders first, and then worry about what other countries are doing.
We are expending billions of dollars overseas and truckloads of unidentifiable people are crossing our borders everyday. Who’s the fools now and why, with all the collective smart folks in Washington, can’t they cipher this?
Any politician who points this out is automatically branded a racist. Hooey. Get over it. Crack down hard on people who flaunt gaining citizenship and use our system against us and it will suddenly not be a joke amongst them. “Don’t go there. They ain’t playin’ games no more!”
If Jihadists come into this country, ghost them quietly and deliberately and bury the evidence on it permanently. No 70 virgins for them and good riddance. Call me an extremist if you will, but I call myself a patriot. Come and take it.
