Click here for my early post of remembrance for September 11, 2001.
A quote by Rush Limbaugh today..."I want somebody out there who thinks Obama made a great speech today and Bloomberg echoing it, to tell me how it is that our 'fractured sense of community service' led to the 'crimes' committed against us on 9/11. And I want to know from you how it is that rekindling this 'spirit of community service,' whatever the hell that means, is going to prevent the next attack on this country." -Rush Limbaugh
I want to share a few thoughts today as I realize just how strong I still feel about what happened... now 8 years ago... and the fact we're still dealing with it.
May we never forget the attack on our country and our people. Why? Denial can only lead to more pain. The politics that have occurred since this attack have only led to more ond more open wounds between citizens who do not agree. The small percentage of human beings called politicians whom we have given power to, laugh at how easily Americans can be prodded into the political coliseum where we engage in cock fighting at the mere drip of disagreement. How angry we all are… how angry I am.
Last year I was depressed when 9/11 snuck up on me… this year I am angrier than ever. Not every day… not at those around me… I am angry that political agendas have wiggled under the skin of Americans and given us all a cancer. Anger can be a great asset... but when anger is created for the enjoyment of others it is a cancer. I can feel the burning anger towards our government. Perhaps that is the agenda of the terrorists? If so... I would say it's working.
Political agendas be damned!
We are being told the enemy does not exist and that we, American citizens, are the evil terrorists. They point their political fingers at us and tell us how bad we are and expect what? Repentance for things we have not done? Perhaps they expect us to beg them to cleanse us. With what… their dirty conniving hands? No… the enemy is not within… the enemy is sitting in the bleachers laughing at us. Politicians consort with terrorists and therefore become terrorists. When was the last time you didn’t feel terrorized when you heard the media telling you that you’re a racist or a hater or a stupid conservative bigot? I consider that terrorism… mental abuse, if you will.
So on this memorial of September 11, 2001, I am not depressed… I am angry that our “protectors of freedom” (our military) have never truly been allowed to defend our freedoms but instead have had to play politics and bow to the will of liberal agendas and other such nonsense. Like holding back the lion from its prey until it dies from starvation, we hold back our military with threats of law suits or dishonorable discharges if they dare to defend themselves let alone their country to their fullest ability. Let our warriors fight… let them win with honor.
The question does come up… have we really won the war… is there still a war going on… do our men and women warriors even know where they stand or why they are fighting?
