Before I get into my tirade of the day, I want to comment on the loss today of Ron Santo. Many days when I was young, I sat on the third base side of Wrigley and was privileged to witness the play of one of the greatest third basemen of our time (no disrespect here to Brooks Robinson who, Cubs fan that I am was and is the greatest). A skilled player and feisty competitor, Santo, along with Banks, Kessinger, Williams and the others always were able to remind me that the game is just that, a game. He, along with Banks, spent God knows how much time signing autographs and talking to us kids. Imagine that! He actually would walk up to us and talk. And although one could always see the joy in his game. I will never forget the look on his face when the last out was played in “69” and the Cubs had blown that lead. The pain was there for all to see. We have lost a marvelous ball player and a hell of a man.
Now, Tirade number 1. As all now know, we have in progress for all to see the Wikileaks fiasco going on. We have the NYT stating these leaks make for transparency and as such they should be published (this from the same entity that refused to publish the leaked memos that debunk climate change due to the fact that they were stolen. Such hypocrisy) We have Hillary expressing her outrage and for all practical purposes, not a word from our moron in chief who at this moment, as usual has run away, in this instance to Afghanistan to avoid addressing any situation that reflects badly on his administration. My question here. Where is the real outrage from these clowns? This is the third set of leaks! We had a statement for the Attorney General. He said they were going to investigate this severe breach of security. Probabaly the only reason he commented at all is because this set of leaks illustrates how badly this administration conducts foreign policy. Don’t have to defedt the Bush administration, but sure as heel, he has to defend the Bozo administration. Then what? He headed across the pond to lobby for the World Cup! Can anyone out there tell me why the AG needed to do this? That was more important than enforcing our laws?
As if that isn’t bad enough, we have the Anti-American left propaganda machine known as the MSM actually trying to justify and find excuses for the man who stole the secrets (For what it’s worth, I truly believe there is more than just PFC. Manning involved in this). So, my slant on this as I’ve posted on other sites.
“First and foremost. This is treason of the highest order! PFC. Manning and if possible this Assange guy ( and I know we cannot charge him with treason, he’s a foreigner) should be tried and executed as should any others involved. Those are my beliefs. As an example, being a Jew, my ears perked up when Bibi put as a condition to stall settlements on the West Bank the release of Jonathan Pollard. As we all know, he was spying for Israel. Some folks seem to think as he was doing it for an all, he should be cut some slack. NO! He is a spy! He committed treason against this country. As such he should have been shot as should the 2 people mentioned above.
The really galling part is the NYT as well as our moron Attorney General? This has been going on for some time now. As one will never convince me that there are not so many more people involved than just the PFC in these releases, one must ask not only where is the outrage against scum bag papers like the NYT, but also exactly what are our investigative entities doing about this? There seems to be little outrage on the left. The President is hiding, the Secretary of State is out trying to pull the covers over it and security apparatus of this country is too busy branding our own citizens as extremists, choosing to ignore the real enemies of this country. One could well start with the NYT as one of those real enemies. The very fact that this so called “Paper of Record” can openly try to justify publishing this is in my view an act of treason as well. They put their open leftist agenda above the good of our country.”
Now as to the leaks. So far, what has come out has pretty well been known or suspected by all. The one leak I really want to comment on is in reference to missiles that have not only been sold to Iran from N.Korea, but also they in fact have missiles that can travel 2,000 miles. In effect, the NORKS can easily deliver a bomb over the border where we have 35,000 troops based. I have commented on this numerous times in the past. When madmen rule, bad things can and do happen. One cannot and should not negotiate with madmen and ideologues. One must put this politically correct B.S, aside and do what they must! In Iran’s case, the hell with the we mustn’t upset the Muslims crap! In the case of N.Korea, we must not stand by and wait until the madman does something stupid. Our weakness is on display for all and China is reaping the benefits! As I posted on other sites:
“This whole problem stems back to our friend Weird Willie (Mr. Clinton for you leftists out there) He allowed missile guidance technology to be sold to the Red Chinese who in turn gave it to the NORKS. The fact that the NORKs in turn sent entire missiles to Tehran fits in perfectly with the Red Chinese aim of disrupting the U.S. and her allies. Also, as I have said in past posts. This proves not only the fact that the NORKs do indeed have a delivery system, but also points out the grave danger to not only our troops in the south, but to the entire region.”
Finally, there have been numerous stories and what not as to the obsession the MSM and the Left have with Sarah Palin. Other than the fact that they basically will continue to throw hate and condescension towards her hoping to convince the electorate she is in effect not worthy of their votes, I find most of it quite funny. However, I am fed up with Media idiots going not only after her family, but most politicians’, families if they don’t agree with what the left wants! Case in point, Bristol Palin.
There’s no need to go into the Dancing With The Stars B.S. or anything else as to this discussion. The other night, Keith Olberman, as is his wont, went off on Bristol, basically questioning her right to speak out in behalf of abstinence as to teenage sex. Basically as Bristol is a teen mother, this should in effect disqualify her from trying to inform the teens of our country to not make the same mistake she made. I wonder sometimes how the Palins and other political families ( I would even include the President in this if they ever go after his children) put up with this. Enough from me on this. I will let Bristol defend herself in her own words below. She states perfectly how a person can and should mature and learn from their mistakes, a lesson many politicians and journalists should learn themselves.
“What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the "worst person in the world" to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.”
