The Tiller shooting: The response is unreasonable.

There’s much to discuss in terms of implication, as regards the shooting of abortionist George Tiller, none of them particularly complimentary to those claiming to take up Tiller’s side.

Even from the outset, my instinct was that the reaction to the Tiller story was overblown… intentionally so.  Whatever else might be said, we’re talking about one man’s death. Absent the issue of Abortion, and in light of the seven men in Chicago alone, shot in the same 24 hour period, one man being shot just isn’t national news, sorry.   It also and most certainly doesn’t rise to the level of ‘terrorism’ as some have been loudly claiming.

It’s interesting, too, how the word “‘Terrorism” has been rediscovered by the left, to be applied to this …


Honor them, today.

Have you ever been to Arlington ?memorial-day2
It’s a place like very few others on the planet. It’s true enough; the world would be a better place if places such as Arlington weren’t required to be a part of it, but man is fallible. Our freedoms that so many of us take for granted , come at a very high price. What you see in front of you is but a small part of that price.

Something there is about humans that causes us not to want to be indebted to anyone. It’s perhaps why some are so anti-military. Yet we are indebted to these individuals, and millions more like them, buried on battlefields all around the world. We are indebted in a way that …

George_WashingtonRag-tag militias fought, some reluctantly and for reasons they did not understand, to secure colonial independence from Great Britain. The leadership, cunning and inspiration of George Washington helped provide critical victories and maintain a semblance of order to the Continental Army through hard battles and a harsh weather through 1776.

1812 brought Britain’s attempt to retake the colonies, but we stood undeterred and continued to fight for our right to be independent and free. The Texas Revolution …


Yes, it is Unfortunate and Sad…

The numbers were hit this week, as of last night we hit 853 military deaths this year in Iraq, the most for any year of the war so far.  I suspect (I haven’t had time to skim the news sites today) that we will have a lot of hay made over this between the politicians in office, the ones who want to be in the highest office, the media, the left side blogs, etc.  My own father railed on me earlier this week over this.  What bugs me most about the war is how difficult it seems to be for the anti-war crowd to make a cogent statement in the midst of their emotions.  I get how they feel, but I don’t understand just what …
