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.

Tree-Huggers Gone Wild

Just when I thought I might be in store for a normal week, I get hit square in the face with this one.  Thank you environmental greenie wacka-doodles for this one.

According to FOX News this morning, the State of New York has once again topped the stupid meter.  As most states across this nation, and indeed, the nation itself is in financial crisis, we have found yet another brilliant way to toss away hard earned funds from the tax-payers.  Get this, the department of transportation in New York has spent tons of money, (money they don’t have), on new road signs.  Keep in mind, money is needed for more worthy projects like infrastructure, education and public services.  These signs are being placed along roadways near lakes and ponds, and other bodies of water.  Basically, they are signs warning drives to proceed with caution on account of the fact that FROGS may enter the roadway!  Holy stinkin’ cow, for real?!

But wait, there’s more.  These brainy elites in government have figured out how to waste even more money on this stupid project.  The signs are all hinged in the middle.  Why you ask?  So the state can pay workers to go out as the weather gets cold and fold the sign down, so as to not be visible.  Why you ask?  Because frogs don’t hop in the snow!  Oh, and obviously, the state will have to pay workers to go around again in the spring to fold the signs up.

Thank God for these geniuses in government that are on this mission to save us from ourselves.  I mean, what would we lowly citizenry do on our own?  I would have thought to myself that perhaps the frog wanted to die.  Maybe he is on a little froggy suicide mission.  Maybe tadpole mama was  caught creepin with the froggy milkman.  Who knows?  Not for me to judge, but if froggy is lookin’ to go to that lillypad in the sky, who am I to stop him.  But no!  Big government wants me to swerve into oncoming traffic risking the lives of pesky humans to save this little amphibian. Hey, I guess these gifted folk in leadership haven’t thought that by swerving out of the way, that perhaps we would turn right and go off the road and damage a tree!  There goes the ozone, and hello more global warming, right?  Come on already people!  Can we just get along with our lives without being freaks about every goofy idea that pops into a liberals head?  I’m all for the sanctity of life, don’t get me wrong.  But, here’s an idea for you.  How about we start with placing some value on human life and stop killing babies in the womb?  Maybe we could stop the slaughter of human innocents for, oh I don’t know, a minute or two?  Could we maybe get on that trip for a while?  Maybe instead of spending millions upon millions of tax payer dollars on saving frogs, and we could also save countless millions of tax payer dollars by not supporting abortion clinics, and planned parenthood.  Then, with all that money saved, maybe we could balance the books?  Or hey, here’s an idea liberals.  If you can’t get over NOT spending other peoples money, then spend this money on things like saving unborn children!  Maybe put some money into adoption agencies.  Or parenting education.  Nice idea hmmm?

Well, I gotta jump off my soap box.  Time to get in the car and run down a few amphibians and reptiles…and maybe a squirrel or two as I head out to lunch.  Oh yeah, I’ll be doing this in my Cadillac SRX.  Yes sir, it’s an 8 cylinder monster gas guzzler.  Just trying to do my part.  Don’t worry Canada, y ou don’t have thank me.  Maybe this year you guys won’t freeze to death!
