Odd. Very Odd.
George Washington defeated Cornwallis at Yorktown, the British army
stacked their weapons and as they did so, their band played, “The World
Turned Upside Down.” Indeed, it must have seemed that way. The most
powerful nation on earth had been defeated by an upstart rag-tag band of
That particular tune, “The World Turned
Upside Down,” would be an appropriate ditty to play at the White House
today. No, I’m not referring to the election of an African American
President. All Americans can celebrate the goodness of a nation that
cares not a whit about the color of one’s skin, but only about the
quality of one’s character (to paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.).
the reason it’s time to play the song, “The World Turned Upside Down,”
is because of the incredible, almost laughable decree of the Obama
Department of Homeland Security that those who oppose abortion, support
the right to keep and bear arms, have served in combat fighting those
formerly called terrorists, and who believe in limited government and
maximum individual freedom, should be considered as domestic terrorist
threats. In other words, those who still believe in the principles and
values of our Founding fathers and who have been willing to put their
lives on the line to defend our nation are now labeled as potential
And out of the other side of their mouth, this
Administration tells us that Islamic radicals are no longer to be
referred to as terrorists.
At minimum, this is odd—very odd,
indeed. It is silly to the nth degree. And it is dangerous.
Apparently, under the direction of President Obama, the Department of
Homeland Security is now taking the focus off of real terrorist threats,
and directing it toward their political enemies.
The response of
National Commander of The American Legion, David K. Rehbein, struck
exactly the right note when he said, “Americans are not the enemy.”
American patriots who love freedom and cherish our history and
traditions should not be labeled as terrorist threats. And to set the
record straight, the NAZI skin heads that are always thrown in with
conservatives are really on the left, unless NAZI no longer means
National Socialist as my dictionary says.
There is no threat
from those who believe in the rule of law and minimum government, who
oppose infanticide and abortion, who believe in the right to keep and
bear arms, and who have put their life on the line to preserve freedom,
unless it is a political threat to the top-down control of the lives of
every American that is posed by the overreaching of the Obama
May their time in office be short and the damage
they do be minimal. May real patriots in the mold of Ronald Reagan once
again be elected with the understanding that they are to serve and the
American people are their masters. May we have leaders in public life
who understand that a nation comprised of free and unencumbered citizens
know best how to run their own lives.
Let Freedom Ring!
