Barack Obama Reads Rangers In Seven

Hey what can I say folks? I guess he was attracted to the recent postings of Woody Woodpecker Cartoons. Well, here's how it all has gone:

On Wednesday July 25, 2007, I wrote:

"Bush should go after the Al-Qaeda and Taliban being protected in western Pakistan. The military must dismantle the nine terrorist camps in operation there and also nab the brain trust of the terrorist group. Allowing those camps to run unchecked means we are no safer than before September 11, which would be a disservice to Americans and all those troops who have been injured or killed during the War On Terror. Yes, Bush should send the military over the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan, until the job is complete."

To read the entire post, go here.

Yesterday, Senator Barack Obama, a Democrat and one of the favorites in the Presidential race, said the following, courtesy of the New York Daily News:

"Let me make this clear: There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again," Obama said. "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."

Obama made those comments while speaking at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington. The tabloids are calling Obama, "Bush on Steroids" following those remarks. However, Mr. Obama has gained some valuable points in my book! We are the U.S.A. and have fought this War On Terror as if we have to apologize for everything we do. The joke of this is that the Democrats complain that high-level terrorists have not been captured, but now here is someone with a plan, who is now taking it on the chin in the press.

Good for Mr. Obama. But we can all see right through this. The print media - by far slanted to the left - is rooting hard for Hillary Clinton to take the White House. So anyone in Mrs. Clinton's way, will get vilified.

The reality is that we give Pakistan billions of dollars and have sold them military planes, as well. If they want to continue to receive our help they should stop talking out of both sides of their mouth and take care of the problem. I'm glad to see a politician finally tell it like it is, at least on one hazy, hot, and humid day in August.

I certainly am very saddened for those who died in the Minnesota bridge collapse, but am actually pretty shocked that more people did not get killed. Apparently, many good folks were helping each other out and the first-responders did an excellent job, which not surprisingly included the National Guard.

Meanwhile, Al-Qaeda is set to release a tape within the next 24 to 48 hours predicting a "big surprise" while showing a burning picture of the White House.

I don't know how to categorize this one, so I'll leave it up to you. The story has been reported in many different outlets, including NPR, which wrote on their website:

"A fence-building company in Southern California has agreed to pay nearly $5 million in fines for hiring illegal immigrants. Two executives from the company may also serve jail time. The Golden State Fence Company's work includes some of the border fence between San Diego and Mexico.

After an immigration check in 1999 found undocumented workers on its payroll, Golden State promised to clean house. But when followup checks were made in 2004 and 2005, some of those same illegal workers were still on the job. In fact, U-S Attorney Carol Lam says as many as a third of the company's 750 workers may have been in the country illegally."

Ridiculous, sad, funny, shameful. Just some of the words that came to my mind when I read this, what say you?
