The Week magazine’s current issue’s cover story is how Trump is killing the Republican Party. What hot air! What is FINALLY killing the status-quo Republican Party is conservatives finally get at least one candidate who is not only saying what they believe in their own hearts but that is NOT an establishment crony. Our two-party malfunction is simply the one and same hand. The difference is the front of the hand or the back of the hand; that is it. Of course there is concern in many of the Trump voters if he will deliver. They aren’t idiots. But what they do know is the candidates the Republican Party has provided are a bunch of individuals who will on the whole will be no freaking different than Hillary.
The party decides it wants to usurp the citizens and not select their choice. You know what that is? Yet ANOTHER clear example of TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION! You know what we are SUPPOSED TO DO when that happens? Read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We are supposed to RISE UP and REMOVE the ENTRENCHED CORRUPT form of government.
What a sad state of affairs in Brussels. I listened quite a bit to the coverage about the terrorist attacks in Brussels yesterday and this morning. I heard a lot rehashing the story to fill up air time. I also heard supposed experts on either Brussels, foreign policy, terrorism, intelligence or our administration. Some really ridiculous comments were made. I wish I could quote exactly and name the individual but I was driving when I heard them and well, safety first. In general the comments were like:
- Isis is retreating and scrambling to recover since they lost 20% of the land they held in an area of Iraq.
- What is needed is more actionable intelligence.
- Yes, there are in essence, self-governing Muslim neighborhoods in Brussels…
- Here in the USA we may need to make air passengers arrive to the airport on foot instead of by car at the departure area of the terminals.
With ISIS and any other terrorist group, we have individuals who are simply not “playing by the rules”. We have individuals who do not want to be citizens of the neighborhood or country/state that they reside in. We have individuals who want to kill as many people as possible who disagree with their warped, immoral, unethical religious beliefs and convictions. They simply want to kill all “the others” or convert them by sword/AK-47. The continuous insistence that civilization must play by the rules in fighting these degenerate life-forms is noble in the romantic view of life but also quite ridiculous in the practical and real matter of life itself. This is not a police matter. These are not individuals who have rights in our country or any other country simply because THEY CHOOSE not to be citizens of their locale. Since they have made this choice we need to honor their point of view and treat them as real-life agents of death and destruction. If you or I discovered an IED in our neighborhood, would we take time to ascertain if it was ethical and/or legal to engage immediately in order to save human lives? Hopefully the answer is no. That is how we MUST view and engage any terrorist.
It is long time past for the leaders of government and policy to realize and act on the fact that the only way to win these battles is with the same vehemence a physician tries to eradicate cancer in a patient. You do it immediately, fully and with prejudice.
