Let's Be Clear on the Present Danger
Drunk on cheap (and yet tasty) wine, I was again applaud be the current state of our nations affairs. It is hard to believe and even harder to except that the greatest nation in the world is involved in torture. How has this happened?
Let's be clear about the real present danger. Terrorist are not the threat. Rather they serve as a warning from which a nation is tested, how we react is how we are judged. Driven by fear we have clearly created a present danger that threatens to destroy our country. Again and again, we allow chicken hawks to hide behind the flag while they shred the Constitution. Is their no one left in our government willing to stand-up to tyrannical power?
Where is a real Jack Ryan when you need him?
Perhaps I should just settle down, and like to rest of the country be content to look for him at the bottom of this bottle.
