As long as we insist on maintaining the "moral high ground", we will NEVER win the war on terrorism! We're in a conflict which we absolutely INSIST in playing by the rules - against a maniacal group who have NO rules!
Rattlesnake Logic in dealing with terrorists.
After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us.
They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible.
The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals and about why and how they can live among us and still hate us.
A Texan explained it this way:
Here in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway.
In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter. I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don't stop to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me;I know it WILL bite me because it's a rattlesnake and that's what rattlesnakes do.
I don't try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a "meaningful dialogue" with it. I just kill it. I don't try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me.. I just kill them.
I don't quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are, because (a) it won't tell me and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.
I don't look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake. I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time.
Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes.
Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect what they can do to me and my family? Yes!
And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve. I kill them. As a country, we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists' are telling the world their goal is to kill Americans and destroy our way of life.
They have posted graphic videos on the internet showing them beheading Americans. They are serious. They are exactly like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to start acting accordingly!
I love this country. It's the damn government I'm afraid of!
I'm Just Saying!
simple questions from an attorney
Here are 4 Simple questions from an attorney...are there ANY logical answers ?
You be the judge……
Here's what I would like to know. If the TRUTH ever comes out and it
is decided that Obama was never eligible to be president, what happens
to all the laws he signed into being and all the executive orders?
Should they all be null and void?
Here are 4 Simple questions from a reputable attorney...This really
should get your "gray matter" to churning, even if you are an Obama
For all you "anti-Fox News" folks, none of this information came from
Fox. All of it can be verified from legitimate sources (Wikipedia, the
Kapiolani hospital website itself, and a good history book, as noted
herein). It is very easy for someone to check out.
4 Simple Questions .....
1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes’. So how can the
Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term
wasn't even used at that time ?
2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's
birth as August 4, 1961 and Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father.
No big deal, Right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that
his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in "Kenya, East Africa".
This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that
Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's
birth, and 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father
have been born in a country that did not yet Exist ?
Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the "British
East Africa Protectorate". (check it below)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_%28http:/en.wikipedia..org/wiki/Kenya%29 (Wikipedia is not the most authoritative source but will work for this piece of history)
3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed
place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital".
This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were
called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity
The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological
Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this
particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961
if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
(CHECK IT BELOW)
Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media?
4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book on his father. He states how
proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I'm not a math genius, so
I may need some help from you. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" says
his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should
have put his father's date of birth approximately 1936 - if my math
holds (Honest! I did that without a calculator!) Now we need a
non-revised history book-one that hasn't been altered to satisfy the
author's goals-to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and
1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest
stages of WW II his father wouldn't have been more than 9 years old.
Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter
the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes ?

I'm Just Sayin!
When the Dallas Cowboys substitute a new quarterback during a game, they do not change their name. The opposing team is still battling the Dallas Cowboys.
So it is with our most active enemy today. We are at war with Muslim radicals, jlihadists, or terrorists. Call them al Qaeda, ISIL, ISIS, Taliban or anything else you can think of.
Strike hard enough at al Qaeda to make them change their name and you have accomplished nothing. They will just fight on the next day under a different name.
Until this country and the rest of the world, including a number of peaceful Muslim nations, recognizes that we are engaged in a long term war, we will have to accept more deadly battles like the one in Paris over the weekend.
In the words of Congressman McCaul quoted here last week, “We haven't made decisions in the region in terms of a strategy, and when you don't have a strategy, you fail.”
Those words are prophetic. We do not have a strategy and we are failing. President Obama will not even acknowledge that we have a well defined enemy--radical Muslims.
Now we are not even leading from behind. France is leading on one front and Russia is marching out smartly on another.
Not to worry, though. Our President is out there trying to lead on another front. He is gearing up for what he says is the most serious threat facing the U.S. today--global warming.
That is hard to believe. Our president is saying, “Sticks and stones or, in this case, bombs and rockets, may break our bones, but the earth going through another warming cycle will kill us all. Those scientists from England, Russia, Mexico and other nations that claim we will enter another mini ice age in 2030 because of solar flare cycles are just trying to get us to take our eyes off the ball.”
After all,according to him, al Qaeda is no more. Its place has been taken by ISIL, but that is just the JV team. That is why there is no need to put boots on the ground in that area anymore.
What about those 50 U.S, troops being deployed to Iraq and Syria? They will be wearing sneakers or, according to one cartoonist, stilts, so there will be no new American boots on the ground.
This is no way to fight and win a war. Drones and air strikes will not do the job. The enemies’ personnel, headquarters, supplies, and support systems have to be destroyed permanently.
French President Francois Holland recognizes that reality. He has announced that the terrorist network must be destroyed and has initiated military actions to do so. That leaves Obama bringing up the rear again.
Meanwhile, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is supporting his buddy Assad in Syria. That country is thus slated to become a puppet for Russia and Iran. Those countries will then take control the oil rich sands of the Middle East.
So here’s the perspective.
Basic provisions of military operation orders are to establish the object or purpose of the planned operation and to record the intelligence available on the subject. In other words, what is the strategy and what enemy will be encountered.
If any of that exists at the national level today, it is being kept under heavy wraps. President Obama has not publicily identified any threat other than global warming that we are facing.
He has yet to acknowledge that we are under attack by MUSLIM terrorists and Russia.
The first step in winning a war is acknowledging that the war is under way.
When will that happen here?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. 'I've gone for 30 years now,' he wrote, 'and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons, but for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.'
This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column.
Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
'I've been married for more than 40 years (now. In that time my wife has cooked and shared with me 40,000 + meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!' When you are DOWN to nothing, God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment!
Always remember, B. I. B. L. E. simply means: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!
Do me a favor remember this everyday and pass it one to everyone.

This is a hard seek and find. Correction! This is a very hard seek and find.
The difficulty is defining or describing the object of the search. What is being searched for is the foreign policy of President Obama.
When Obama was inaugurated almost seven years ago, he became custodian of the office of the leader of the world.
That leadership started as early as 1800 when the U.S. was still a fledgling nation with Thomas Jefferson at the helm.
With a tiny navy and the new, small Marine Corps, Jefferson led the much larger and stronger Great Britain and France to quit paying ransoms to the Barbary Pirates marauding out of North Africa. After the U.S. engaged in several ship battles and stormed ashore with the Marines and some mercenaries, the pirates retreated into their lairs, never to emerge again until recently.
Shortly after Jefferson’s subduing of the African coast, President Monroe established the Monroe Doctrine that warned all nations to keep their hands off the “Americas.” The warning was that a threat against any of the Americas was a threat against the U.S. and would be answered accordingly.
No nation ever tested that doctrine.
In the following century, President Teddy Roosevelt came out with the policy of “Talk softly, but carry a big stick.” He then sent the “white fleet” around the world to show that he did have a big stick.
More recently, Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman were the leaders of the pack of nations that destroyed the Axis.
The U.S. emerged from WWII as the undisputed leader of the free world that brought the Soviet Union, the only other remaining super power, to its demise through the MAD doctrine (Mutual Assured Destruction).
Throughout the many administrations during these two centuries, other nations respected the U.S. and appreciated that its leaders said what they meant and did what they said.
Then, unfortunately, Barack Obama became custodian. From the very beginning, he believed and said that he would talk softly but that no big stick was needed.
He apparently believed that he was so brilliant and so well loved that he could just reason with friend and foe alike to bend to his will. He would just sing Kumbaya rom his TelePrompTers and the world leaders would fall on their knees, sing along, and end with the Alleluia Chorus.
That was his dream, but it never materialized,
So here’s the perspective.
Under Obama’s reign, the U.S. is no longer the leader of the world. The most recent Forbes list of The World’s Most Powerful Peopl rates our President as Number 3. Russia’s Vladimir Putin is ranked #1 and Germany’s Angela Merkel is #2.
As our local Congressman Michael McCaul, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee said Sunday, “"The sad fact is, because we've had a failed policy and failed leadership, now we have to rely on Russians and the Iranians to go into Syria to fight and destroy ISIS. I think, again, it's that weakness invites aggression. We have not handled this right. We haven't done anything. We haven't made decisions in the region in terms of a strategy, and when you don't have a strategy, you fail.”
Those last eight words say it all. When you don’t have a strategy, you fail.
That is why this seek and find is so hard. What is the strategy? Who is the enemy? If ISIS is the junior varsity, who or what is the first team?
Why do Russia and Iran have to be invited in to fight the junior varsity?
Jefferson, Monroe, the two Roosevelts, Truman and the other presidents who have worn the mantle of world leadership are shaking their heads in disbelief over these questions.
