It's BROKE!!!!

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775 - you've had 234 years to get it right; it's broke.

Social Security was established in 1935 - you've had 74 years to get it right; it's broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - you've had 71 years to get it right; it's broke.

The "War on Poverty" started in 1964 - you've had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked and our entire country is broke.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - you've had 44 years to get it right; they're both broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - you've had 39 years to get it right; it's broke.

Trillions of dollars were spent in the massive political payoffs called TARP, the "Stimulus", the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009.... none show any signs of working, although ACORN appears to have found a new source: the American taxpayer.

And finally, to set a new record: "Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009! It took cars (that were the best some people could afford) and replaced them with high-priced and less-affordable cars, mostly Japanese.
A good percentage of the profits went out of the country.
And the American taxpayers take the hit for Congress' generosity in burning three billion more of our dollars on failed experiments.

So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that "services" you shove down our throats are failing faster and faster, you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run health care system?

Situational Awareness

In a way, the USA has been undergoing a series of scaled down, non-religious and apolitical terror events for over 20 years.
After each event, the sheeple bleat for stricter gun control laws.
Until now the perpetrators were disgruntled employees (hence the term "going postal") or had heads full of bad wiring.

No more.

The Ft. Hood Massacre involved radical Islam and, IMHO, an individual who did not want to be a part of having harm come to his brothers in the Mideast.

So he killed and wounded his brothers and sisters in arms!

When someone asked a Fort Hood spokesman why there was no soldier with a gun among the crowd to stop the religious fanatic, the spokesman almost indignantly replied that they didn’t need to be armed, because at the base they were “at home.”

Someone might have told him that so many of us “backwoods home” folks DO keep guns at home for protection, because self-protection is already there and “official protection” takes time to arrive.

At Ft. Hood it took some three minutes.

A long-declared jihad has made American soldiers stalking victims. They have a right to be able to protect themselves any time, anywhere, just like the unarmed citizens they serve to protect.

My advice is to carry wherever common sense and the law permit and to watch your back for whack jobs and true believers!

Heart Burn !!!

I can imagine nothing more horrible than to return from the hellish meat-grinder of the Sandbox only to fall before the terrorist next door, one of our own.

God, to say that our hearts go out to the fallen at Ft. Hood is such empty comfort, such shallow words! And yet there is so little else we can do, aid we can render.

Some thoughts, while our hearts bleed:

1) The international terrorist conspiracy doesn't issue membership cards, and you don't have to fill out an application to join. All you have to do is be willing to kill the infidel...that would be us.

2) Yes, the shooter was "crazy," but let's be honest a war that encourages young women to strap on suicide vests and kill civilian children, then calls those said women "soldiers," crazy has lost a lot of its original meaning.

3) As I watched CNN this AM, I saw General Cone simpering from the lectern about 'We don't go armed around here, this is our home,' which caused me to look at the loaded pistol on the nightstand in bafflement. The military elected to disarm a roomful of shooters, the best of us — how'd that work out?

Gun-free zones kill people!

4) Never, never, never forget that your safety is on you and you alone, every day, every moment of the day, in your workplace, in your home, in the places you think are the safest.

And never, never. never forget that the enemy is among us.
