Domestic Terrorism…Food for Thought

with 2 comments

Right off the top here, I want to be specific.  This post is not about Islamic Jihad.  I’m strictly talking about terrorism from within our own borders.  This terrorist network lives among us.  They are our neighbors, and we may not even know it.  We often talk, for the past ten years, about the atrocity visited upon our nation when foreign terrorists struck our nation on September 11, 2001.  These people stole nearly 3,000 lives in a one time attack.  The response from our Nation was swift and deliberate.  We have invested hundreds of billions of dollars to combat that evil at its source.  We have sacrificed thousands of brave American lives in the pursuit of justice.  Yet absolutely nothing is done about a form of legal domestic terrorism that murders nearly 1,000 people every single day.  In fact, not only are we not fighting this domestic terrorism, our Federal Government and State Governments are paying for it.  Shoot, they are even prosecuting those who would stand against it.

According to Federal statistics, Planned Parenthood committed over 330,000 abortions last year alone.  That is a rate of nearly 1,000 people a day that are killed in what should be the safety of their mothers womb.  Maybe the numers are too big to grasp, so I’ve decided to break it down in a way most people can understand.

Imagine Sunday afternoon.  The Dallas Cowboys are playing in a packed house.  Their stadium holds 80,000 fans.  Now imagine that stadium filled to capacity more than 3 1/2 times over.  What if a terrorist of foreign origin successfully detonated a bomb that in an instant wiped out all those people?  You see how it eclipses 9/11 by more than 100 times.  Yet we do nothing.

Her in Charlotte, North Carolina, our dismal Carolina Panthers play in Bank of America stadium.  This stadium, if it were ever to be packed, holds about 73,000 fans.  It would take almost 5 capacity crowds slaughtered to equal what Planned Parenthood murders in a single year.

Not a football fan?  Let me break it down in terms of other sports for this to hit home.  Don’t coward out on me…stick with this.  Laker fans, when they go for an NBA game at the Staples center in LA hear this.  That arena only holds a little over 18,000 fans.  That would take nearly 18 full capacity crowds to be executed in order to equal the number of babies that are mutilated each year.

Hockey fan?  My Boston Bruins play at the Fleet Center in Boston.  Capacity there is about the same as the Staples center.  Do you understand the magnitude of this atrocity?

Quit looking at ultrasound images and think of stadiums full of people.  What is being killed isn’t a fuzzy image on a computer screen.  It is a person, created by God.  A person that one day would grow up to be a person in one of those seats.  A person with a job, home, that gives to charity, that loves, that contribuetes to society and the economy, that has family and is deserving of the right to exist just as each person we’ve already looked at.

You and I, as taxpayers are funding the murder that on an annual basis is 100 times worse than 9/11.  We’re doing it every year.  We are doing nothing to stop it.  Call on your local Congressional and Senate leaders to stop funding abortions with yourm oney now!  All it takes for evil men to succeed, is for good men to do nothing.

Cliche Fest 2011

Days like yesterday make me glad to be an American.

Now before you assume what I am directly referring to is the 634 point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.  Nope!  I’m referring to the sad, used up, and sometimes comical cliches that get tossed about like a prostitute working shore leave.

Some of the better ones I heard yesterday were; Barakolypse, Obamageddon (my personal favorite), Obamination, and of course, Obamacare.  These terms get coined and it seems every talking head picks up on them and regurgitates them to death.  There is no comedy in the fact that our economy as well as the overall world economy is plunging into chaos, and countless peope are losing their life savings.  So, I’m not poking fun at peoples losses, but, just have to take a crack at the crutches folks in the media continually lean upon to get through their tiny little 2 and 3 hour shifts.

My single-most irritating phrase that is overused is ‘at the end of the day.’  This is a favorite not only of the pundits, but of their ‘expert’ guests, political figures, law enforcement, and just about anyone that gets their mug on the tube.  But, at the end of the day what really matters is that they ‘think’ they are being witty.

As an aside, what is up with the current administration not being willing to call people who murder in the name of their religion as ‘terrorists,’ but, fling the term ‘terrorist’ around like frisbees when talking about patriotic American public servants who stand up for what is right?  I’m talking about the Tea Party members of Congress.  Let it be known up front that I am not a member of the Tea Party, but, probably should be.  Here they were demanding cuts in governement spending (money they didnt have) and fixing the mess we have created.  They get squeezed out, and compromise forces them out.  True to what they warned, the Standard and Poors downgrades the US economic outlook to AA+ and the US and world economies promptly begin to tank.  Imagine that, it happened just as they said.  It happened not because of them, but rather because their fiscally sound plans were not adopted.  For this, somehow, the left rationalizes that it is their fault, and labels them ‘terrorists.’  What the heck is that?  It is just amazing that you see John Kerry’s ugly mug on the tv puking out the democratic talking points, blaming the Tea Party for the economic downgrade.  But I digress.

The previous random rant…a courtesy of elected officials refusing to play nice.

Ok, I know this post was supposed to be about overuse of cliches, but, I’ve run out of valuable blogging time.  It is what it is.  I’ll do better tomorrow, providing of course, the world doesn’t come to a violent end!

Peace!
