An opinion piece.
The war in Afghanistan tore the USSR apart. One man, Lech Walesa, pretty much destroyed Communism in Europe. The USSR had fought 10 years in Afghanistan, almost as long as the U.S.A. has been involved; from 1979 to an exit strategy developed in 1987, exactly the amount of time the U.S.A. has been involved.
Walesa took advantage of the USSR’s weakened economic condition from the Afghan war to liberate Poland. The same year, Hungry opened its borders to offer freedom to 600 East Germans, breeding more desire for independence from Communism. Those inside the USSR were broke and hungry – sounds like today’s U.S.A. depression, right?
This year the U.S.A. has lost more soldiers in Afghanistan than any other year, nearly 200 by the end of August.
In September of 2001 this nation came together as it was invaded for the first time in more than 100 year by an outside nation or power. Even the 1995 Oklahoma City courthouse bombings had been done by citizens of the U.S.A.
Yet today, at the dawn of the 21st Century’s second decade, insurgents and traitors like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Matt Drudge and others are trying to tear this country apart all in the name of radio ratings.
Instead of enlightening listeners, informing them about the path we are following the USSR down in Afghanistan and protesting the soldiers being injured and killed, all for a war that has existed as far back as King David in the Bible, they are making up crap about the health care bill and Obama addressing school children. They are so stupid they can’t find real issues – they need to fabricate them – and for those following these media idiots, fabricate is not material you wear as clothing.
Instead of uniting the country, these so called “right wing” idiots are leading uneducated people – those unable to formulate their own opinion – like lemmings to the sea. I challenge Beck, Drudge or Limbaugh to discuss economics with me at anytime. I will expose them for the idiots they are.
Here’s a recent press release also documenting how these greedy little mothers who make millions off the brainless are attempting to destroy your nation, “Militia groups with gripes against the government are regrouping across the country and could grow rapidly, according to an organization that tracks such trends.
“The stress of a poor economy and a liberal administration led by a black president are among the causes for the recent rise, the report from the Southern Poverty Law Center says.”
Today, let’s united as citizens in honor of the 9/11 terrorist attack. Turn off those right wing idiots. Quit watching shows like American Idiot, weight challenge, destroying and rebuilding homes and ones that make motorcycles and money while you’re sitting there vegetating watching that show. Will you ever help them build a motorcycle? No!
Spend this time visiting your library. Listen to inspirational messages – there are millions of churches promoting their message online. There are hundreds of sites like HayHouseRadio.com that will wean you from idiots like Limbaugh, Drudge, Beck and all the local imitators – stay away from the thousands of radio personalities imitating Howard Stern, too. Learn to think for yourself.
Take that time you were going to watch that one show where they throw people in the water for being stupid and go visit someone in a hospital. Go to a church meeting instead of watching those bachelor-type shows.
Use this day to unite our country. Somewhere in the Bible, like Acts or Romans, it admonishes that God establishes leaders and their downfall. Support your leader. Realize it was God, not you, that put them in power.
So what if you didn’t vote for him or her. What other country in history have you been able to select a new leader every four years? Rejoice in that freedom. Rejoice that your marriage has not been arranged. Rejoice that you can work in whatever occupation YOU choose. Rejoice in the affluence we have where women and men can squander money having their hair and nails done, go to bars and make fools of themselves. They can’t do that in Iran or Afghanistan.
If you don’t like your current government representative, find someone who shares your views and help that person get elected to whatever office they are seeking.
Read the Sept. 2 Washington Post story by one of the right’s greatest minds, George Will, advocating getting out of Afghanistan, Genius, said de Gaulle, recalling Bismarck's decision to halt German forces short of Paris in 1870, sometimes consists of knowing when to stop. Genius is not required to recognize that in Afghanistan, when means now, before more American valor is squandered.
Just quit being a lemming and following idiots taking you down a traitorous path. Today is your day to begin educating yourself. Do not follow the uneducated traitors you hear on the radio – or preaching from the pulpit. If you want a right wing person to follow, follow enlightened ones like George Will.
