The American people do not want war on Syria, and such a war makes no sense. Who is trying to stampede Congress into war on Syria, and then on Iran—and why? Therein lies the real question.
You’d think Putin had constructed a gas chamber on the edge of Olympik Village in Sochi, but the reality is much less shocking.
We are almost to the middle of 2013 and, in Lord Melbourne’s words, “What all the wise men promised has not happened.”
The proposal to build a mosque in Manhattan near the site of the Twin Towers has ignited the usual futile debate that marks all political discussion in America. I don’t know which set of arguments is more degrading, the opponents’ cry of insensitivity or the defenders’ claim of religious freedom.
I have not turned on the television in over a week and have refused to listen to NPR’s reverent coverage of the Democratic National Convention. Still, I cannot help picking up stray bits from here and there. What self-absorbed little people, doing star turns in the little plays they have scripted for themselves. Even James Carville could not help observing that the Democrats wasted their first night on the soft soap operatics of Ted Kennedy and Michelle Obama.
It looks like the economy is going bad, but don’t worry. Congress will make sure the bankers and speculators don’t suffer.
Just imagine, if the Democrats get in we will have a huge national debt, undeclared and foolish wars, affirmative action shoved down our throats, federal take-over of education and everything else in sight, rampant abortion, “gay rights,” open borders, government catering and giveaways to foreign countries. We will even have more terrible Supreme Court justices like Warren, Brennan, Blackmum, Stevens, Kennedy, and Souter!
But is Barack taking his own advice? For he pledges to shift two U.S. combat brigades, 10,000 troops, out of Iraq and into Afghanistan, raising American forces in that country from 33,000 to 43,000.
Barack Obama has said that his mixed-race heritage would serve to make him a uniter. But the violently militant roots of Obama’s church of 20 years, which advocate “the destruction of the white enemy,” along with Obama’s well known associations with hate-mongers point to the opposite being true.
Americans are a people of deeply held religious conviction. If any has doubts, let him look on the most serious of our sacred holidays and believe.
Naturally, it is a federal holiday, but that fact alone does not convey the magnitude of this special day. For, unlike other federal holidays, this one carries with it a gravitas—a holiness—that says it is special. You can tell, because we don’t mark the day with fireworks and pop music, or the pardoning of a turkey, but by a singular devotion to the very words of our national religion’s founder.
