Pirates attack Belgian ship - will they show mercy?
Word comes today that Somali pirates captured a Belgian dredging ship and its ten member crew. I wonder if the pirates will demonstrate mercy and release the innocent men? Afterall, the Belgian Parliament just passed a resolution condemning the Pope for his statement that condom use was not the sole (or is it soul) answer to Africa's AIDS epidemic. Then again the Somali Pirates are Muslims and while they may dislike the pope, they disdain areligious Kuffirs even more.
Obama's new vision; our enemies are our friends and our friends are enemies.
This week marks a seminal change in American foreign policy, one in which America's allies are alienated while our tyrannical enemies are coddled. Look no further than the developments in Latin America. First, we have the recent pronouncement that the Obama administration intends to "seek a new beginning" with Cuba. This "thaw" in what are otherwise characterized as icy relations include the relaxation on travel restrictions and remittances (transfer of monies). Apparently, Obama had no intention of holding the dictatorial regime's feet to the fire and demand human rights reformation or freedom for political prisoners.
Nonetheless, the Obama administration is not assuaged. It deems patriotic Americans and allies like Israel as enemies, while our true enemies including Cuba, Chavez, and the Saudis are subsumed.
TEA TIME - WHAT'S NEXT?
Across the country many thousands of law-abiding Americans gathered at hundreds of "Tea-Party" rallies to demonstrate their angst and disgust over the run-away spending and outrageous tax policies of the current administration. Back in March, I had the opportunity to attend the first D.C. "Tea-Party". Contrary to CNN Reports, the "Tea-Parties" are grass-roots efforts and are not the creation of Fox News.
It seems that the Obama Administration, the same group who just released a report characterizing nearly everyone as "right wing extremists
" is more paranoid than Richard Nixon. Then again, perhaps he has good reason to be so concerned. According to a recent report by the PEW Research Center, Obama is the most polarizing President in modern history
. But of course, the MSM
has completely ignored the PEW's findings and they will undoubtedly ignore the events of today except to minimize and distort the importance of the "Tea-Party" movement.
While it appears from every indication that the "Tea-Parties" were highly successful, one naturally asks, "What's next?" Apart from continuing the grass-roots momentum, writing the President and Congress, I would propose the following:
Reclaim "May Day" as the worker's day. Imagine if on May 1st of 2009 every working man and woman, every honest, tax-paying citizen in America stayed home. Consider the impact that this simple and decisive action would achieve and the message this would deliver to our "elected officials."
Like this idea? Well please feel free to develop and disseminate the message. It's time for the real "workers" of America to unite. Let freedom ring and let's retake our country!
