Michelle Malkin has a great post today about the acquittal of all charges against Haditha Marine Lt. Andrew Grayson.
It makes me wonder when/if John Murtha will apologize for the following statement:
“there was no firefight, there was no IED that killed these innocent people. Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”
Or for that matter what about Barack Obama’s statement about what John Murtha said:
“I would never second guess John Murtha… I think he’s somebody who knows of which he speaks.”
These liberal politicians always say that they support the troops and not the war. I have no doubt that they support the troops; I just wonder whose troops they support.
Last night I was thinking what is really meant by Obama’s “change” mantra he continues to repeat.
Sure we have all heard how he is going to take the country in a new direction if elected and all the other things that you hear every election cycle from just about every politician out there (to include McCain); yet rarely see happen once the person is elected (just look at the Democrat Congress during the 2006 election claiming they would end the war in Iraq if elected). Some people say that the change is in his policies and his position on the issues…..Yeah right he will still be a politician come January 21st.
Well here is my take on Obama’s “change” mantra. I believe that we will see a “change” if Obama is elected come Jan 21st (a day after his inauguration). This change is much simpler than most people think it is. What I see as the “change” Obama keeps talking about is a “change” in the main stream media’s (MSM) treatment of the Presidency and how the country is doing as a whole if Obama is elected.
I would not be surprised at all if Obama is sworn in on the 20th of January that on the 21st of January we will see in the news that the economy has improved, that Congress is looking into drilling for oil in ANWAR and lifting the moratorium on off shore drilling, that we are now safer than before 9/11, that Iraq is becoming stable and that the rivers are all running with chocolate while the children run and play under blue skies with beautiful rainbows.
This is what I expect to be the “change” that Obama is talking about; yet the realities will be, for the most part, business as usual…..the MSM will continue to mislead the public about what is really going on for political gain. All one has to do is turn on any news report on any of the MSM channels to see the blatant bias going on. To hear any of the MSM talking heads you would think that Obama was the second coming of Christ. No matter whom Obama associates with the MSM only goes gaga over the Obamessiah. They are in full see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil mode and will continue to do so. About the only way one can hear about the associations that Obama has had over his lifetime and career as a politician is through the blogosphere (doing the job the MSM refuses to do). Take for example the way the press has lambasted McCain for having people on his campaign that have ties to lobbyists. Now compare that to the lack of any substantive stories about Obama’s Middle East advisor who quit due to him having talks with Hammas (a known terrorist group). I do not know about you, but someone having ties to a terrorist group is far worse than someone having ties to lobbyists (let’s face it I have yet to see a politician out there that can’t be tied to a lobbyist somehow).
If you followed the links to the two stories, both from the Washington Post, you will see how the Obama story is downplayed, but the McCain story is made out to be big news. This is just the pre-game warm up compared to what we will see in the MSM in the coming months and what we are in store for if Obama is elected in November.
Last night I was talking with some of the guys I work with. We were talking about the problems of illegal immigration, the costs involved and just the overall lack of any real enforcement on the books. After that I sat down and came up with the following plan that I feel will help put an end to illegal immigration:
My 4 step plan to eliminate Illegal Immigration:
1) Cut off social services to illegals. They can still get truly emergency medical care, but if they can not provide proof of citizenship then make it mandatory that ICE is called.
2) Prosecute companies that knowingly hire illegals up to and including incarceration and loss of business license.
3) Prosecute Illegal Immigrants who use stolen identities to obtain employment and/or benefits
4) Bill the foreign nation where the illegal alien came from for the costs of the incarceration, medical expenses and deportation cost. To collect on the bill, reduce the foreign aid to that country by the amount of the bill.
If we do these four things there will not be any illegal immigration problem.
Some of you may know me, but many of you may not. I am a former US Army Soldier that was medically discharged in 2006. I did serve in Iraq from Jan 04 to Jan 05, but no I did not receive any combat injuries.
Since being discharged, I have been fairly active in politics and I must say the one thing that I have seen more often then not is how politically correct everything has become. That is what lead me to creating this blog.
My goal is to get ideas out there to people in hopes that the masses start talking about them in such a way that they pick up steam and the politicians will finally hear our cry for true representation and not just lip service and feel good notions.
I will tell you right now I am fairly conservative and I am sure that some of my ideas will tick you off, but I will use my freedom of speech to get these ideas out there. I am not one to go back through and moderate or edit others posts as they have their right to free speech too. I only ask that you try to keep it clean, respectful and constructive.
I also will say that my posts and my posts alone are the ideas and statements I represent. Any comment that is not mine is the view of that individual.
With that said let the rantings begin……
