I have had the pleasure for the last two weeks of having my grandchildren visiting. During the visit the matter of my blog came up. These kids are 11 and 8 and are very computer savvy. When we discussed the “Moron of the Month”, they had some questions. “How do you decide Grandpa? Can we help you pick?” I explained that the biggest problem I had was not the shortage of candidates, but the abundance of them. This month is certainly no exception. With the Liberals in charge it gets very easy.
For April the choice is clear. She is Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security and former Governor of Arizona. In the far out event that you have not followed the news regarding Ms. Napolitano, she and her department have issued a report and a BOLO (police talk for be on the lookout) to police departments for would be terrorists or candidates who might become terrorists. Her report, which she signed off on, indicated that the place to find these terrorists is in returning veterans from war zones. She has determined that these gun loving right wingers are prime candidates for becoming terrorists.
The liberals in our society apparently think anyone who doesn’t toe the mark and jump on their band wagon of leftism is a threat to our country and to our way of life. There is a threat all right but it is not from returning veterans. No, it is from those who believe that anyone who thinks like a traditional American and believes in the Constitution as written, who believes in the second amendment, and who might possibly attend church, could become a problem. The idea that those who have put their lives on the line for our freedom, giving up their freedoms in the process could somehow now become a threat to our government is just ridiculous. Without their sacrifice, Ms. Napolitano, we would have no country. Without their selfless decision to defend this country, Ms. Napolitano, you would have no job. Your willingness to issue the statement to police departments all over the country warning about returning veterans qualifies you as April’s “Moron of the Month”.
Ms. Napolitano did get on television and issue the standard non-apology apology, but it fell flat on its face. If she didn’t agree with the report she issued, why did she sign off on it? Did she read it? Did she really think that the citizens of this great country would just sit by and let this nonsense go unchallenged? Since the report has been out, Napolitano has been crucified by veterans groups, many Members of Congress, and Americans everywhere. Her own party has been up in arms as well.
I am on record saying that I would not be critical of President Obama unless and until he screws up. I will continue that pledge but, somebody in that Administration better be paying attention to what the underlings are doing. At their current rate of travel, they could be the shortest running government in modern times.
I want President Obama to succeed. I want our country to succeed. This is America. If I wanted to live like a European, I’d move to Europe but like most of you I want America to be America. I want my freedoms protected not squandered. I expect veterans to be respected for their sacrifice and their service. I don’t want to be embarrassed by some moron who happens to have a high level job and just happens to have some semblance of authority.
True Americans will not tolerate much more of the nonsense we have been subjected to so far in this new Administration. Let this be a heads up for them. Get a handle on the idiots who put their faces on television and spout off. They are speaking for you President Obama.
