That is, after all, what PC is all about, it is also about thought control, intimidation, speech control, censorship, and creating an environment where the Left cannot be challenged. Stacy McCain elaborates
Yesterday, I saw Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball rant for 10 minutes about Sen. Ted Cruz as a latter-day Joe McCarthy for having dared to ask questions about possible ties between Hagel and foreign governments. Chuck Hagel isn’t just some random citizen who has been grabbed off the street for interrogation about his loyalties.
No, Chuck Hagel is under consideration as Secretary of Defense, and the Senate therefore has every right — indeed, it has a solemn duty — to investigate his associations with groups that seem rather secretive about their funding.
If I could give the biggest reason I started writing op-ed columns 17 years ago, and then created this venture with Ed Daley, I would say it was to stop the erosion of our liberty! PC is the number one source of that erosion, and I will be damned if I sit by and allow that to happen!
As the revelations about Benghazi are showing us, we, or should I say our Commander in Chief was unwilling to USE that big stick
US Officials said they NEEDED PERMISSION From Libyan Government for Overflights During the 9-11 Attacks–
Former Assistant Defense Secretary Bing West told America Live:
“For the United States military to say that they were 480 miles away and they couldn’t do anything, and they couldn’t move one aircraft in 8 hours? I’d say it’s time to relieve a lot of people in the chain of command… If your ambassador has been either killed or captured, and is missing at the hands of terrorists, you do not ask any country for “Mother may I?” before you come across the border to save your own.’”
Go read the rest, my head is about to explode here. The problem is this, we have to USE that big stick, and make no mistake, no one has a stick as big as ours, no one has better trained troops. I was talking to two veterans at the airport the other day, and they agreed with me that Teddy Roosevelt forgot the most important part of the Big Stick policy. That part is that when you use that stick, you use it with such devastating force that any nation will think long and hard before screwing with you again. Basically, we are wasting our military if our “leaders” are too gutless or clueless to utilize it properly! Basically, what I am saying is this. I want everyone to fear us, I do not want us to bully anyone, but, I want any leader, anywhere on the globe to piss themselves when they think of crossing us.
I really try not to throw out a bunch of four-letter words on this blog, but sometimes, sometimes some asshole who frankly is not fit to shovel camel shit says something insulting to our military, and well….
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called on American soldiers to remember that when serving abroad they are representing the United States — and that incidents involving the desecration of enemy corpses shows “a lack of professionalism” among American forces.
Speaking to troops at Fort Benning, Ga., Panetta said that the high profile cases involving servicemembers urinating on Afghan corpses and posing for pictures with body parts “show a lack of judgment, a lack of professionalism, and a lack of leadership,” according to the L.A. Times.
“These days, it takes only seconds for one picture to suddenly become an international headline,” Panetta said. “And those headlines can impact the mission we’re engaged in, they can put your fellow service members at risk, they can hurt morale, and they can damage our standing in the world.”
Hmmm, it seems to me that the asinine rules of engagement our troops are forced to fight under and having a Defense Secretary that could not find his ass with both hands might endanger our troops and threaten morale. Who wants to bet the troops would agree with me?
