Just asking but:
Am I the only American who isn't particularly upset that five commanders of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps were killed by "terrorist" bombs? Does anyone else recall that the very same IRGC sent IEDs to Iraq to kill American troops? Pardon my political incorrectness, but good riddance to bad, bad rubbish.
Can someone explain why last month, the Empire State building was lit up in red and yellow to celebrate the 60th anniversary of communist China? One would think the slaughter of 40-70 million people by Mao Zedung, et al, is something to mourn, not celebrate. Those responsible, along with all of those who thought it was a good idea, ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Does anyone seriously believe it takes 1502 pages--the length of the current Senate health care bill--to "reform" health care? Something that long is far less about health care than it is about a corrupt Congress inserting "special" provisions that benefit individual Congressmen at the expense of the public. Tort reform? Nowhere to be found in this crap sandwich.
Is our health care future already here? According to the Florida's Sun-Sentinel, health officials in that state "are drawing up guidelines that recommend barring patients with incurable cancer, end-stage multiple sclerosis and other conditions from being admitted to hospitals if the state is overwhelmed by flu cases." The plan also "calls for doctors to remove patients with poor prognoses from ventilators to treat those who have better chances of surviving." Webster's definition of "triage:" the sorting of and allocation of treatment to patients and especially battle and disaster victims according to a system of priorities designed to maximize the number of survivors. The only relevant "battle" occurring is the one for the nation's soul, in order to mitigate the "disaster" of a Democratic party.
Is anyone really surprised that the Obama administration is doing its best to demonize Fox News? What other network would have exposed "truther" Van Jones, "Maoist admirer" Anita Dunn or the endemic corruption in ACORN? Fox's senior political analyst Brit Hume has it right on the money: "One wonders how our colleagues at CNN and elsewhere like being patted on the head and given the seal of approval by the White House," mused Hume. Good news: there will be 100 fewer heads to pat at the New York Times, where they are cutting that number of newsrooms jobs by the end of the year.
Can anyone other than a veteran, a current soldier or the family of a soldier even begin to imagine what it's like listening to the latest Obama administration excuse for delaying a decision regarding troop levels in Afghanistan? Ostensibly we have to wait until that country "settles its presidential election" first. Rep. Howard P. McKeon, ( R-Calif.) the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, cuts right through the b.s.: "Are the Taliban waiting for these results to be released before they attack our troops and Afghan civilians?"
Is there a more brain-dead philosophy than the "all cultures are equally valuable" nonsense that animates multiculturalism? According to Fox News, Somalian hard-core Islamist group al Shabaab is publicly whipping women for the "crime" of wearing a bra which they claim is a violation of Sharia law. The same group of thugs has banned movies, dancing at wedding ceremonies, and playing or watching soccer. They also amputated a foot and a hand from two young men accused of robbery. With regard to the women, perhaps this is what progressives mean when they talk about different "strokes" for different folks.
