It seems like the Media Intelligentsia overseeing our National Conscience want America to apologize for every perceived slight from the early days of this country right up to now and our battles for National Survival. Everything that a Liberal looks at must be seen through a prism of the perfect world being the unanimous incontrovertible consensus, therefore should be embraced by all. Tearing down whatever it takes to create a perceived "equality". The Liberal optimist never sees the holes in our defenses this mentality promulgates. Perfect equality cannot be created for all human beings when we are not all equally blessed with the same gifts. Those who can perform brain surgery are not necessarily equal to those who stand by the freeway offramp and beg for food and money. Just as those who serve our country either overseas fighting or here upholding the Law are not equal to the sleeper terrorists here in America hiding and waiting to attack innocent civilians, or the people who die with a needle sticking out of their arm.
From the treatment of Native Americans, the ousting of Britain, Slavery, Civil War, Chinese Railroad workers, buying the Southwest from Mexico, Fighting in W.W.I, The Great Depression, W.W.II, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, the Counter Culture of the 60's, Viet Nam, the Computer Age, Energy crises, War on Terrorism, and now Global Warming, there has been continual struggles to move forward and keep this Nation as fair and strong as possible. Things have not always been done properly without anybody being slighted, but we can't rewrite history. Even though that gets attempted all the time. To acquiesce to pressure brought on by a cadre of underachievers who can only uplift themselves by sinking others falls far short of equality, fairness or self-reliance.
Two recent stories have come up that beautifully illustrate exactly where the hypocrisy emanates. The recent firing of the U.S Attorneys, and General Pace's comments about homosexuals in the military.
Take the U.S. Attorneys story. President Clinton came into office and fired all U.S. Attorneys, now President Bush fires 8 and gets castigated as a political partisan move. Well the U.S attorneys serve at the behest of the President and can be fired when necessary. Senator Charles Shumer Democrat New York says attorney general Alberto Gonzales should resign over this. The Attorney General did acquisce and say something along the lines of sorry, mistakes were made. I get infuriated every time the liberal media gets the conservatives to backpedal and aid them in their portrait of the conservatives as mean or disingenuous. Shumer says Gonzales' chief of staff Kyle Sampson can't take the fall for Alberto like Libby did for Cheney. Isn't that special, Shumer lecturing someone on ethics and taking responsibility. If my memory serves me well Shumer's office had credit reports on Michael Steele and Shumer's protege Lauren B. Weiner went down. And isn't that crime a felony? When you're a Democrat slandering a Republican I guess the truth and facts don't really matter. And the media will fail to point out the duplicity.
Oh well, all that is not surprising and neither is the Homosexual agenda making another inroad toward being an acceptable alternative lifestyle endorsed fully by the U.S. Government. I guess the Homosexuals feel that if the United States Govt. says it's O.K. then their abomination will be approved by all morality. General Pace came out and spoke his mind, obviously it was not politically correct, and he has been raked over the coals in the press. As a Marine, General Pace is more than likely a very no nonsense, by the book, stand up guy. He also said that adultery was immoral, so he is not just picking on gay people. That is what's going wrong in this country everybody is afraid to make a stand based on moral principles, as if everybodies morality is somehow unique and not bound to a higher standard. I am thankful for General Pace to stand up and claim God as our standard. I also worry about our military being insidiously undermined at it's very foundation. All the big Democrat players are pandering to the homosexual lobby and stating they will allow outright homosexuality in the ranks. As if dealing them a big loss in the War against Global Islamist Terrorism isn't a good enough slight. It will soon be a marvel if anybody wants to serve. At least General Pace will not back down and apologize for being right.
