Despite Boston Marathon-like tragedies, terrorists, crazies won’t prevail
Written by 

flagThe explosion of two bombs yesterday at the Boston Marathon points out once again that we live in a dangerous world.  The attack was not committed with guns or AK47’s or high capacity magazines.  The attack was committed with explosive devices that injured, maimed, or killed countless innocent people.  Those near the explosions who survived now have their lives changed forever.

 

 

As I sat watching the television accounts and seeing the explosion near the finish line, I wondered just how much hate must a person have in his or her heart to commit such a heinous act?  In America we are taught tolerance for one another.  We respect each other’s religious and political views.  We hold free and open elections.  We have a free market economy, and we applaud the ingenuity of the American people.  Success is a good thing in America.  In other parts of the world, the same cannot always be said.  So why these tragedies occur is sometimes hard to comprehend.

There are those who are so miserable in their existence that they must take revenge on society.  They want the attention and thrive on it.  In these types of attacks, it is usually for a political or religious reason.  Maybe it is a left wing or right wing cause, or possibly it is an act of war against our nation like 9/11.  In other attacks some crazy person finally snaps completely, and it just makes no sense at all.  It is killing for the sake of killing.

We must remain diligent as a nation.  We must protect our shores and our people.  We pride ourselves on our freedoms, and we should never do anything to compromise or lose them.  At the same time we should never forget that we are at war against religious radicals and domestic nut jobs who want to bring down our nation.

The responsible party or parties will be caught and punished for what they have done.  Whether this is domestic or foreign terrorism or foreign influenced, the facts don’t change.  There are real crazies out there, and we need to stop them. For 1,000 planned acts of terrorism, our defenses must stop every one of them.  For the terrorists only one of those acts needs to succeed. What the terrorists don’t comprehend is that they are up against the greatest nation in the history of man, and that at the end of the day America will stand tall – undefeated and unstoppable.  God bless America!

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
