This past week has been a sad one for America. Democrats in the House have shown their steady and constant disdain for our Troops by not only stuffing a spending bill for funding them with excessive pork, but actually passing it by a 218-212 vote, pretty much along party lines.
Having the bill heavily laden with pork isn’t the main objection, though, it also contains just what our enemies desire, a date for them to wait on for our Troops to once again be forced to accept defeat in their Victory and allow the enemy to waltz in and force another country struggling for freedom to be turned into an oil rich terrorist training camp.
Any fool knows when we broadcast a date we intend to throw in the towel; the enemy will just inflict casualties and wait for us to leave so they can step in. Democrats complain of an “open-ended war.” As far as our enemies are to know, our commitment must be “open-ended.” Democrats, as expressed on today’s Fox News Sunday by Dianne Feinstein, see it as, “A timetable, I believe, is, in fact, in order.”
In the meantime, more Troops have signed on at Appeal For Courage, begging for support from Congress, and being ignored!
Mediocre actor Sean Penn, known for his Jeff Spicoli character in the movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, drew heavy applause yesterday at a Town hall meeting in Oakland, Ca. with the statement, “take your war and shove it.” It should be noted that Spicoli, er, Penn never served in the Military, much less fought for someone else’s freedom. Penn, son of Leo Penn, who during the McCarthy era, was called before the Un-American Activities Committee, refused to name names and was branded a Communist and blacklisted, also became known as Baghdad Sean for his own Un-American acts of visiting Saddam Hussein’s Iraq as we geared up for War and opposing the removal of Saddam. Penn/Spicoli also was sighted in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, desperately bailing a severely overloaded boat (he forgot to put in the transom plug) filled with photographers, agents and press personnel there with him to film his efforts at rescuing victims of the hurricane. This led one bystander to inquire, "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"
Sean Penn is the last person I would ever listen to about conducting a war!
Last weekend was a banner weekend, even though the hard drive in my computer went south and I have been without a computer all week. The big anti-war protest in D.C. turned into a bust, as expected numbers didn’t show up, not even Hanoi/Baghdad Jane Fonda. What protesters were met with was a ratio of about 3 to 1 of counter protesters known as the Gathering of Eagles.
True to fashion of the left, protests were scheduled across the nation in the more leftist cities. San Francisco had theirs and not to be outdone, so did Portland, Oregon. Not content with opposing the war and demanding the impeachment of George W. Bush, a group from the Portland, Oregon protest burned a soldier in effigy while burning an upside down American Flag. One protester, apparently not content with the burning, pulled down his pants in front of women and children and defecated on a burning U.S. flag, eliciting cheers from some members of the crowd. In reporting this, the Portland Tribune headlined the acts as Rudeness mars peace message. Rudeness?
Leftist Democrat protesters can be seen and heard in the video at You Tube of this incident, Portland Effigy. Protesters can be heard chanting, “Bye bye GI, in Iraq you’re gonna die” and “Build a bonfire, Build a bonfire, Put the soldiers on the top. Put the fascists in the middle, and, we'll burn the fucking lot."
The 19 year-old college student, who took photos of the protest, including the burning in effigy of the soldier, says of right winged pundits displaying her photos, "They're twisting my pictures and misrepresenting what happened on that day."
We also had the latest Non-scandal scandal of the Bush administration firing some Federal Prosecutors. We were subjected to unsubstantiated insinuations of they were fired for investigating Republicans, even though Duke Cunningham is serving 8 years in prison for his crimes. We hear demands for congressional hearings, Presidential advisors testifying under oath, in an obvious attempt of creating another phony perjury trial. We hear cries of political firings and every denigrating thing imaginable from Democrats, except just what law was violated. Understandably, Bush refuses to kow tow to their demands.
A couple weeks ago, Democrats seemed to suddenly discover some problems at Walter Reed Army Hospital and some V.A. hospitals and expressed outrage, even though they admitted to either not visiting them or had visited them and not seen the problems. HR 1591 was stuffed with $74 million for peanut storage, $25 million for spinach growers, $283 million for dairy farmers, all total some $20 billion in vote-buying pork of the kind they campaigned against last year. What was not included was a single dime to address anything they were complaining about at Walter Reed!
Although sad, the week wasn’t a total loss for America. We at least had the L.A. Times inform us that Barack Obama, Presidential hopeful and thorn in the side of Saint Hillary, is the “Magic Negro.”
Cinch down your safety belts. We have nearly two more years of this and undoubtedly, it is going to get much worse.
