And it is indeed a curse. We are living now in a time when the Revolution must again be fought. The people must rise up against an out of control government and put it back in line. Yet it seems that more and more, it becomes impossible to do so. I continue to hear both good news and bad news concerning the fate of this nation, but it does not seem to me right now that the good outweighs the bad.
Case in point: A child in elementary school (I don't remember the school or the grade of the child) was asked by their teacher to draw a picture of something that reminded them of Christmas. The child drew a picture of Jesus on the cross. Apparently he'd been with his parents to a cathedral as a day trip and that was what was fresh in his mind. The teacher didn't offer praise to the child. No, they sent the child home and made him take a PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION!!!! Dear Lord in Heaven what is happening to our country!?
As mad as that story makes me, however, I cannot abide this next, which in my view is the most blatant act of TREASON ever committed by ANY administration, Nixon included. Watergate is NOTHING on this, and I stand by that statement.
As far as what the story is, here you go (please tape your heads together so that they don't explode.)
I just heard that one more senator has turned against the abomination that is Obamacare, and the administration is not happy.
In fact, they are so not happy that they immediately resorted to the arm twisting. Not the usual arm twisting, mind you. They didn't offer him a bribe or discredit him in the media. They didn't even go after his family, as they did Joe Leiberman. No, they went after THE TROOPS!!!
Our brave fighting men and women are now being used as a bargaining chip by the Obama administration. How, you ask? Well, according to three separate sources, one of which is the Weekly Standard, the White House has threatened to place one of our most important Nebraska military bases on the BRAT list (that's the list that determines which bases will be closed and when.) This is not just any base, however. This is the successor to our STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND!!! This is the place where George W. Bush was during those uncertain hours following the 9/11 tragedy. HOW DARE THEY!?
I say again, HOW DARE THEY!?
This is the insanity we have to live with these days. It still makes me shake and shudder with rage and contempt. These men and women deserve better than this. They are not chess pieces to be moved around at the whim of the Commissar-in-Chief, or by Czarina Pelosi, or anyone else! These soldiers and officers love and defend this nation and should be placed upon a pedastle! These are HEROES and they are being treated like yesterdays GARBAGE!
I'm at a loss. I don't know what to do. Someone help me regain some sanity and tell me that there is a silver lining around this dark cloud...
