Effects of 9/11 (Part III)

This is the third and final tribute to the victims and victims’ families of 9/11. I started writing this and I have decided to change my approach to attempt to answer the questions put forth by Darwin pertaining to the first 9/11 blog. Hopefully this can give more insight to how I feel and I hope more of you will comment to show people like Darwin that we support our Commander-in-Chief and most importantly our Country.

Let’s start at the beginning with George Bush and his administration. Cranky Right put it best when he documented that Dubya had only been in office for a total of Two Hundred Thirty-Four days when we were attacked. Calling his administration helpless is hardly even fathomable let alone absurd especially when you consider how the United States was affected by al-Qaeda, remember 1993, 1995, 1998, 2000.

As for the bin Laden connection, everyone knows that there were many of Osama bin Laden’s family here in the United States and yes they were flown out of the country on private jets, but Osama is the odd ball out in his family. Thus, you were correct when you said I would probably use the word “Black Sheep” and I will, because that is what he is. There was a comment made that Bush could have gotten bin Laden, but let me ask the question, what about Clinton? Again, Cranky Right makes an excellent point with his question about the Butterfly Effect.

For the report that just came out, when did Bush ever say that al-Qaeda had connections with Saddam Hussein? Democrats are trying to undermine our President and this country while complaining about a “Docudrama” literally slamming the Democratic Party. With that said, two years ago Michael Moore came out with Fahrenheit 9/11 and Moore became the “Rock star” of the DNC. Then the (Michael Moore) movie was seen as Freedom of Speech, but this docudrama needs to be censored out, what is the deal?

For the War on Terrorism, how about rooting for our side you freaking Liberal moron? In all honesty, that is beside the point and what it comes down to is that five years ago we were dealt a huge blow. We need to continue to support our President, our Nation, our Troops the same way we did immediately following 9/11 and re-unite as “One Nation under God”.

Effects of 9/11 (Part II)

*This is the second part of the three part blog dedicated to the events leading up to and following September 11th, 2001.*

The first concept I want to examine is the bias spin put on by the Liberal Media and how they (the Media) have been successful influencing the values of our American society. Particularly the media has maintained a strong focus upon President George W. Bush and his administration pertaining to the events pre and post 9/11, while seemingly forgetting about the two-term presidency of Bill Clinton prior to Bush being in office.

It has been a known issue, for many years dating back past the presidency of Jimmy Carter, that when Democrats are in office or have control the thought process of the Democratic Party is to cut expenditures on programs pertaining to National Security, Defense programs, while seemingly throwing money towards socialist programs such as healthcare.

For the first One Hundred Sixty-Five years of our Country’s existence, National Defense consisted of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Our first true taste of attack from abroad did not occur until December 7th, 1941 with the attack on Pearl Harbor. This opened the door to what would lead to the attacks on 9/11. One must question whether an attack would have been thwarted, if a Republican would have been in office from 1992 to 2000? Obviously chances are relatively high that spending would have gone into National Defense programs and I would like to think that a Republican would have taken Sudan up on their offering of Osama Bin Laden.

In present day we have groups that believe we are not winning the War on Terrorism, but one has to seriously doubt these beliefs every time there is a dramatic situation involving terrorists. For example, the capturing of Saddam Hussein, the killing of his sons, the assassination of Zarqhawi, and every other development that will occur thanks in large part to President Bush's War on Terrorism. When something of the magnitude occurs as previously mentioned, this deals a devastating blow to the platform of the Democratic Party. Momentum swings greatly in the favor of the GOP when announcements as such are released to the American public as well as the World.

One of my favorite Bush quotes is, “…We have to be successful 100% of the time…while terrorists only need to be successful once…” This comment is not complex in the least but says it all. Unfortunately it appears that Democrats are anxiously waiting for the Bush Administration to fail, when it should be trying to support our Country’s Commander-in-Chief.

Of course though, it might actually take another attack on our Land of the Free to wake up these individuals and groups to the seriousness of what Terrorists throughout the World are trying to do to our Western Civilization. Their goal is simple, it is to annihilate the American society as we know it.

In our society though, when things are going good we seem to be a divided country and when something bad happens such as a 9/11, we seem to try to unite as one. Why must it take something of magnificent negativity or devastation to bring families, friends, neighbors, and even strangers together?

Effects of 9/11 (Part I)

I recently received an e-mail from a reader in the Northeastern portion of the United States requesting a topic written upon the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. This is the first of three blogs pertaining to the upcoming anniversary of 9/11 and all three are dedicated to the victims, families and friends affected by the most gruesome attack on American soil in sixty years.

The time is nearing for the Five year anniversary of one of the most devastating blows on American soil in recent history. The death count has fluctuated from time to time but the most consistent number tallied 2,823 people killed. These people were Fathers, Mothers, Grandparents, Sons, Daughters, Brothers and Sisters and in a matter of minutes they were gone from their families forever.

Everyday life as we know it was forever changed when the attacks were brought on American soil. Terrorism has become a way of life not only throughout the World but also in the greatest Nation ever.

Do you remember where you were when it was announced the planes had hit? I do and at the time I, just like those around me, did not understand what was taking place that being America was under attack.

Think back to how it felt that treacherous day. Contemplate how distraught we as a collective group had become. Remember the “Rally around the flag” mentality, or how President George W. Bush was supported by the majority of Americans with the thought of the U.S. being equipped with a fearless leader. The days following led to major Patriotism towards the United States, in which talk radio stations played clips of men and women alike talking about enlisting in the military to defend our Country. I remember one individual who said, “Give me a gun and I’ll kill ‘em all.”

Flash forward to the year 2006 and at first glance it appears that many Americans have forgotten the pain and sorrow felt that day. The Left of our society has twisted the opinions and the views of many fellow Americans into believing 9/11 was the direct failure of the Bush Administration.

There is even a conspiracy group of seventy-five academia scholars who have been brewing ideas paralleling the Bush Administration with the attacks of 9/11. The members of this group are educated, as mentioned above they are academia in our Nation’s colleges and universities. This very academia is the same professors who are teaching our college youth of America. I must admit that I am deeply relieved that my college days are behind me and I have almost two decades until I will have to worry about these people teaching my children. Though if history remains consistent those teaching our children, our grandchildren and even our great-grandchildren will be those with the Liberal bias towards society.

Some Americans must have the brain capacity of a gnat due to the memory loss pertaining to how weak Bill Clinton’s actions towards Al-Qaeda were in the 1990’s. If actions would have been taken following the 1993 bombing of the WTC, the 1996 Khobar Towers, 1998 bombing of 2 U.S. embassies, or in 2000 when the USS Cole was attacked, we could have potentially prevented future attacks by stopping al-Qaeda. Even if Clinton would have taken Sudan up on the 1996 Bin Laden offer, we (as Americans) could possibly be living life without the painful memories of that early September 2001 day.

We'll Teach 'EM What THEY Need to Know...

A St. Louis federal judge has ordered a school district in the boot heel of Missouri to refrain from school-initiated/sponsored prayer or other religious activities. The ruling calls for the district to abide by the policy of separation of church and state and forbidding the espousal of religious faith.

For the full story Click Here.

One of the quotes from the article was “…Parents, not principals, get to choose whether their children are exposed to religious activity. It’s not the job of public schools to proselytize.”

With that said, why are Public schools teaching the students subjects such as Safe Sex, the basis of the Islam RELIGION, or how the Bush Administration is hurting America? If it is not the place of the School Administration to promote Religion, it should not be the place of the School Administration to promote Condoms. Plain and Simple. Shouldn't the Parents, not the School Administration, get to choose whether their children are exposed to these topics?

Ready or not...HERE WE COME!!!!

It is Sunday night, and I am finally back in front of a computer and reading through Yahoo! News and the one article that jumps out at me is 'No.2 al-Qaeda Leader in Iraq Arrested'.

No. 2, Abu Humam or Abu Rana, was captured just north of Baghdad along with a group of his aides and followers. Keep in mind that he is only behind Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who took over after Zarqawi was killed in early June.

How exciting is this? I mean really think about all that we hear from the Democrats and how we "don't need this war and we're just looking for a fight". Every time we capture or kill someone with high official rank with al-Qaeda, we are disproving the Democrat theory each and every time. Our efforts in Iraq are making this World a better place not only for you and me, but for everyone else.

I am sure that as we draw nearer to the November Elections, there will be a few more al-Qaeda members that we will be able to cross off the wanted list and this is only going to help the Republicans in the eyes of the Public. A little bit more equals success and the public will be swayed when we keep proving our tactics succesful.
