It was the great George Orwell who observed, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” I agree. That is why I have a problem with Republican politicians allowing Nancy Pelosi to get away with insisting that Republicans are looking to starve six million senior citizens to death when they insist that Obama and his loony left-wing enablers quit flushing American tax dollars down the toilet.
I realize that she is a major entity in her party, but when you show deference to an idiot, albeit one of the female variety, you don’t come off looking statesmanlike or even chivalrous, you just come across like a bunch of spineless wienies.
While Democrats never weary of portraying Republicans as heartless, it wouldn’t kill the Republicans to accuse ninnies like Barbara Boxer, Barney Frank, Henry Waxman, Anthony Weiner and Sheila Jackson Lee, of being brainless. There is certainly a ton of evidence to bear it out. Still, to be fair, with liberals, it’s hard to know where stupidity ends and evil begins.
I also find myself in line with Allen West who said, “When tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide.” Anyone who doubts the validity of that statement need only observe what is happening in America, where so many people subscribe to the insanity of multiculturalism that few of us are willing to speak the truth about Islam, about school-bus bombing Palestinians or about the dumber than dumb malefactors who comprise the Black Congressional Caucus.
It is the same sort of cowardice that allows special interest groups to demand that ballots be printed in about a hundred different languages here in California, that allows illegal aliens to collect welfare benefits and health care by the simple process of sneaking across our border, and encourages school textbooks to promote the Koran while Mohammed’s most fervent followers are murdering Christians and Jews every chance they get.
Speaking of the Koran, there’s no getting around the fact that Rev. Terry Jones is a damn fool, but that has little or nothing to do with his burning the only book that most Islamics have ever read. It’s simply a provable fact. Still, he had every right under the 1st Amendment to burn just about anything he chose to, including our flag. To suggest that he is the reason that the brutes in Afghanistan killed and beheaded people is to be as brain-dead as Mr. Jones. Islamics raped a CBS newswoman in Cairo. Islamics burned and hung the corpses of Americans from a bridge in Iraq. Islamics butchered a family of five, including two little children and one baby, in Israel. Islamics burn down Christian churches anywhere they find them. Islamics burn New and Old Testaments every day and twice on Sunday. None of that has a thing to do with the nutty minister down in Florida, and it is high time that everyone, including Harry Reid, Lindsey Graham and General Petraeus, quit lying about it.
A short time ago, I was watching The Factor and during the same hour got to see both Charles Rangel and Al Sharpton being treated like visiting royalty. The former is a member of Congress who was censured on about a dozen charges, including not paying his income taxes, and the latter is a racist who came to fame by slandering the NYPD. I sent a letter to Bill O’Reilly, suggesting that he refrain from turning his show into a halfway house for political malefactors. He didn’t post it. Perhaps it was just a little too pithy.
Speaking of O’Reilly, is it my imagination or has he decided that he needn’t allow his conservative guests to ever finish a sentence? It’s been a long time since I didn’t feel short-changed when Bernard Goldberg and Laura Ingraham were on. It’s even worse when Mary Katharine Ham appears because she is invariably cast opposite Juan (Yawn) Williams. Between motor-mouths O’Reilly and Williams, the poor woman rarely gets to open her yap. Perhaps in the future, they could just show an 8 x 10 glossy of her, and let Ms. Ham stay home.
In conclusion, let me just say that when the Jews allowed themselves to be labeled God’s chosen people, we clearly had no idea what we were letting themselves in for. Take our biblical homeland. Granted, Israel has a pleasant seacoast, but a nice view isn’t everything. Who would think God would see to it that Israel is the only country for hundreds of miles around not sitting on an ocean of oil? A wrathful god is one thing, but a practical joker is quite another.
When it comes to real estate, you always hear that the three most important things are location, location and location. Now I ask you, who in his right mind would settle in Israel? North Dakota would have been bad enough, but if they could make the desert bloom, I’m sure the Jews could have done something productive with the frozen tundra.
But imagine getting stuck in the Middle East. It’s exactly like buying your home off the Internet and, after moving in, discovering that you’ve wound up between a crack house and an insane asylum.
