Ten Years After…The Good, The Bad & The Ugly!

                                                                     The Good

Ten years after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, I listened to interviews with Sheri Burlingame and David Beamer. Sheri is the wife of Charles Burlingame, the hijacked pilot whose plane hit the Pentagon. And David is the father of Todd “Lets Roll” Beamer, the brave passenger who led the revolt that crashed his flight into the Pennsylvania field before it could strike its intended target. They had both come to the Ground Zero event orchestrated by the White House to celebrate the killing of the man most responsible for the deaths of their loved ones on 9/11. They were finally able to celebrate with, and thank those most responsible for his demise, the US Navy Seals. Not to mention (which we can’t) the many CIA operatives who risked so much to make the mission a success.

                                                                     The Bad

Lost in the hoopla and glory of the moment, is our focus on an out of control government gone bad on every front imaginable! Jobs, Borders, Foreign Policy, Energy, National Security…you name it, GOVERNMENT is at the very core root of every associated problem, and the very obstacle to every associated solution! It is the very same GOVERNMENT that spun 4 different versions of Bin Laden’s death in as many days, that also brought us Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac! http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_EARNS_FANNIE_MAE?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2011-05-06-16-58-01 Fannie lost $8.7 Billion in the 1st quarter of 2011 and now wants $8.5 Billion MORE! While our eyes are on every distraction, we are failing to notice the changing dynamic in the “energy” of relationship between the three branches of government. The Founders designed that energy to be adversarial…NOT collusive!

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other. – President Ronald Reagan

                                                                   The Ugly

When Benedict Arnold sent a personal note to George Washington asking for his personal belongings to be sent to his new digs in the enemy camp, Washington just shook his head in response to Arnold’s lack of personal honor. When Barack Hussein Obama stepped onto the sacred earth of Ground Zero last week, he planted his foot and sealed his own fate as the most dishonorable and duplicitous human being to ever hold the office of President. On that day, he turned self-less Honor, Bravery and Courage into his own I, Me and Mine-currency for his re-election campaign. He actually turned his back on Sheri Beamer after she asked him to help end the prosecution of those who made his little victory dance possible. It just doesn’t get any uglier than that my friends!

    I have the utmost respect for Sheri Burlingame and David Beamer. She went to Ground Zero for a “face to face” with the “great pretender” to finally get him to see if he would ask AG Holder to stop waging war on the CIA who performed enhanced interogation on terrorists to get info about OBL and others. Her years of selfless work in the name of her brother and all the other victims got her a big NO! And he turned his back on her. That is not a president who came to a hallowed site for the victims and their families. That is a campaigner who came to NYC for photo-ops that will be all over his campaign throughtout the next year and a half.
    David Beamer chose not to go. He is still grieving angry and makes it very clear how he feels about Obama and I can’t say I blame the man. He has every right to feel this way because this president hasn’t made a made a decision that would benefit this Republic or it’s people since he’s been in office.
    Sure, let’s give him some credit for saying, “Get him,” but it started with President Bush and his policies not to give up at any cost, and it was finished by our brave and glorious Navy SEALS. As usual though, Obama and his minions are causing questions to be asked because they are treating us like foolish children that can’t take the whole truth and need to be protected for our own good. And I’m not buying the BS that showing the picture of OBL will enflame the Jihadists. They couldn’t hate us any more than they do now. Let’s show them we mean business and we don’t back down and we are America.
    As for Eric Holder, let’s waterboard him….I never did trust a man with no chin, and there is no way he can prosecute these CIA agents now. Let’s all watch how he will back out of this mess!
