Fly encouraged me to blog on the Ft. Hood massacre this weekend, and well, I think I’ve illustrated my thoughts relatively well on his blog-posting on the subject.
A quick wrap-up–
I think it’s a shame that the foreign papers — particularly Great Britain’s Telegraph — are doing better and more honest reporting on this subject– particularly about the background and description of the murderous assailant.
Our press, on the other hand, is already making pathetic excuses for the Wahabbist strain that threatens us even from within our own borders. Like their co-religionists in the ruling Democrat Party, the mainstream press chooses to bury their head in the sand and ascribe blame to “random” mental imbalance, rather than the more obvious pathogens which have arisen time again.
All that said, it’s even more despicable, in my book, that the Democrats are attempting to take advantage of the press cover given this horrific event to work an extremely rare weekend hoping to foist what the Wall Street Journal called “maybe the worst bill in Congressional history” on the American people without a single bi-partisan vote.
That’s right, Nancy Pelosi and her hard left co-horts in the House are making a power-grab of historical — and unprecedented — proportions with this week-end attempt to move your healthcare choices to Washington. In historical terms, even more than the rampage at Fort Hood, this bill’s passage could become the worst news of the week, and perhaps the decade for the United States and the world that depends on it’s innovative system.
I urge you to contact your representatives in Congress and make your voice heard as a taxpayer and defender of constitutional and personal freedom. Do not let them get away with this theft.
As Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) makes clear in this clip — we as U.S. citizens want to be on the right side of history, and all it takes is a phone call. Do it![youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Trrv26aZWYY 450 300]
