You Know … Folks … Sometimes I really Don’t Care!

Emotional Eagle

I was sitting around with some friends the other evening and they started discussing a email that was currently being circulated that was supposedly written by an angry woman from New Jersey. Sitting there listening to them discuss what the angry lady from New Jersey was ranting about in the email got me to thinking about how I feel about some of the same topics … and prank email or not … I found I agreed a lot with what the email said!

I mean, after all, we fighting a war on terror! And … though it started way before September 11, 2001 … it was radical Islamic fundamentalists who brought it to our shores.

Innocent people from all over the world … and a whole lot of innocent American civilians … were brutally murdered on September 11, 2001.

At the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan:

Twin Towers 9/11

At the Pentagon across the Potomac River from our nation’s capitol:

Pentagon 9/11

And … in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania!

Shanksville, PA 9/11

On that day, over three thousand men, women and children died a tragic horrible death … frightened … burning … being crushed … suffocating … and much, much worse!

And … you know … I really do have a real hard time caring if a copy of the Koran was somehow “desecrated” when an overworked American soldier kicked it … or got it wet … in fact, honestly … really and truly … I don’t care at all.

And … though at one time I might have started caring if Osama bin Laden were to turn himself in and repent for brutally murdering all those innocent americans on 9/11 … or if the radical Islamic fanatics in the Middle East started caring about the Holy Bible … the mere distribution of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia! But, honestly, at this point … I really don’t think I will!

These are the same terrorists who filmed themselves gleefully sawing off Nick Berg’s head while he screamed through his gurgling slashed throat and then … showed it on Arab television and on the world wide web.

These are the same cowardly “insurgents” in Iraq who wouldn’t come out and fight like soldiers … but instead … denigrated their own religion by hiding out in mosques … and also hid their rocket launchers and missiles in children’s schools, apartment buildings, and hospitals.

These are the same mindless zealots who live to blow themselves up … killing any innocent men, women, and children within range of their suicide bombs … so they can go to paradise and “make it” with 72 virgins.

I am sorry … somehow … I really don’t care if their feelings get hurt.

I do, however, care greatly that the left-wing progressive liberal owned American media keeps pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law … and not from the United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights!

So, when I hear some story published in the New York Times about a brave U.S. marine caught roughing up some Iraqi terrorist to obtain important information to save American lives … know this … I don’t care about the New York Times!

When I see a grainy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners with their underwear on their heads … who have been humiliated in what amounts to, in this country, a college-hazing prank … rest assured … I really don’t care!

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head … after he was told not to move because he might be booby-trapped … and he chose to move anyway … you can take it to the bank … I really don’t care.

When I happen to hear that a detainee at Guantanamo Bay … who was issued a Koran, a prayer mat, and eats specially prepared “Islamic” food … that is paid for by my tax dollars … is complaining that his holy book is being somehow “mishandled” because an infidel dared to touch it with his bare hands … you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts … I simply don’t care.

Why not? Because no American prisoner of war ever, ever had it so good … even the criminals in our own prison system don’t have it that good!

Our military is hard at work doing the very difficult and dangerous job we sent them into harms way to do.

And … contrary to what the gutless wonders like Harry Reid, John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, and the reality-ignoring democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama claim … they are doing a great job and succeeding.

I am personally very proud of them!

And … you can take it to the bank … when it comes to supporting our soldiers … I really do care!

And … while on the subject … just a few other things I don’t care about:

I really don’t care that Senator Ted Kennedy chose to throw his support behind Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clinton.

Clinton Snub

After Hillary Clinton’s part in starting the racial war over the last few weeks backfired on her … she deserved to be snubbed. And … I don’t care if Bill Clinton does get red faced!

I do, however, wonder if Hillary now will play the gender card as well. After all, Ted Kennedy’s choice to support Barack Obama must be because Hillary Clinton is a woman … there can be no other excuse … at least not for the radical feminists. It couldn’t possibly be that … gasp … Kennedy simply thinks Obama is the better candidate.

I do care that Senator Ted Kennedy’s car has killed more people than my gun and the Three Mile Island “disaster” combined … and yet Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama … and Ted Kennedy … all want to take my gun away from me. Of course, Ted Kennedy still gets to keep his car. Now to me … that’s worth caring about!!

I also really don’t care that home buyers who falsified (lied about) their income levels on crooked, high-risk, to-good-to-be-true mortgage loan applications are now losing their homes … or that the crooked mortgage brokers who, knowing these borrowers could not afford these mortgages, sold them the homes anyway … are losing money on their investments.

And … how in the hell is that George Bush’s fault? Explain it to me!! Then please … also explain to me why it is our job to use our tax dollars to bail these crooks out!! What happened to personal responsibility?

The same thing happened in the 1980s and 1990s with the Savings & Loan bailout! I guess that, like Hurricane Katrina, that must have been President George W. Bush’s fault as well!!

Do you possibly think that … just maybe … the taxpayer-funded government bailout for these mortgages during the S&L crisis might have created a “moral hazard” … and acted as encouragement for today’s crooked lenders to make similar higher-risk loans during the 2007 subprime mortgage financial crisis. I kind of think it might have …

And lastly … I just can’t find it in myself to care that Justin Timberlake may be responsible for Britney Spears’ current meltdown! I don’t really care who won the Screen Actors Guild Awards or the Oscars. I get so sick of the attention we, as Americans, tend to lavish on the Hollywood celebrity crowd!

It’s almost obscene!

  1. While I certainly understand your anger, your facts aren’t quite accurate.

    It is not against the law in Saudi Arabia to possess a Bible–a Torah or Bhagavad Gita for that matter. What is illegal is to proselytize, to seek to convert a Muslim away from Islam.

    I know many in Saudi Arabia (including Saudis) who own their own copies of other religions’ primary texts.

    Perhaps you simply do not care. But if you are interested in facts about Saudi Arabia, then stop by Crossroads Arabia.

  2. Thank you for bringing that possible inaccuracy to my attention. I will check on the facts and if need be make a correction.

    I am always interested in, and care about, the truth…

  3. Well, I have checked and this is what I found out:

    “The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an Islamic theocratic monarchy in which Islam is the official religion; the law requires that all Saudi citizens be Muslims. Religious freedom is virtually non-existent. The Government does not provide legal recognition or protection for freedom of religion, and it is severely restricted in practice.”

    “The public practice of non-Muslim religions is prohibited. As a matter of policy, the Government guarantees and protects the right to private worship for all, including non-Muslims who gather in homes for religious practice; however, this right is not always respected in practice and is not defined in law.”

    “Proselytizing by non-Muslims, including the distribution of non-Muslim religious materials such as Bibles, is illegal.”

    “Saudi Arabia prohibits public non-Muslim religious activities. Non-Muslim worshipers risk arrest, imprisonment, lashing, deportation, and sometimes torture for engaging in overt religious activity that attracts official attention.”

    “The Government does not permit non-Muslim clergy to enter the country for the purpose of conducting religious services, although some come under other auspices and perform religious functions in secret. Such restrictions make it very difficult for most non-Muslims to maintain contact with clergymen and attend services. Catholics and Orthodox Christians, who require a priest on a regular basis to receive the sacraments required by their faith, particularly are affected.”

    I do not doubt that some folks in Saudi Arabia do possess other religious texts. Some folks in the U.S. possess crack cocaine … that, by itself, does not make it legal.

    Sorry, John, the facts are there … but, in the interests of accurate truthfulness, I did change the word “possession” to distribution.

  4. What the hell is wrong with this guy, John Burges?

    Why are you protecting Saudi Arabia?

    They are a bunch of ####### who force people to believe their shit or else they will punish them severely!

    I ####### hate all of middle east!
