Before I begin my post, I wanted to say thank you to all of our veterans. Our country is grateful to our nation’s military service members, both active duty and veterans, for their dedication, courage and service.
Our veterans have demonstrated their perseverance but I will not tell a lie.
I am not as strong.
I am discouraged. Too discouraged to write anything. I need inspiration.
While I am watching children in Chicago die, soldiers die, America die–soon my faith in the people to actually do the right thing in 2010 will be dead.
Some of my fellow citizens are actually saying that waht Maj. Hasan did was O.K. because he had PTSD, because war is bad and his actions were just an illustration of “America’s chickens coming home to roost”.
Why should this surprise me? After all a dear acquaintance of mine spent 20 minutes telling me what a great man Fidel Castro is- that he is hated by the United States because he is “black” or “of color”.
Although Barack Obama took special pains to make an appearance at the Fort Hood memorial yesterday, somehow I got the feeling that Obama and the mainstream media is just not that into it.
Chris Matthews as we know, naturally is an idiot. His words are yet another display of the brain limiting function of liberal media spin. It seems hardly a coincidence that these journalists jump on the anti-Bush, right wingers are paranoid train no matter how heinous an act someone commits.
Ignorance can be bliss but it is also dangerous.
My only spark lies with the news that some independently minded voters are looking anew at Republicans.
