The Obama Administration took only 100 days to ascertain the true danger to America’s freedom and survival. No, it’s not from another Islamo-fascist attack similar to the one that killed 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11. Nor, is it North Korean tests of nuclear weapons and long range intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching American territory. Neither, is it Ahmadinejad’s Iranian quest for atomic weapons to control the Middle East, Arab oil and annihilate Israel. It’s certainly not Castro’s Cuba and Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, both of whom offered Russia adjacent islands suitable for military bases close to our shores
No, Mr. Obama is concerned about threats to our nation’s survival from radicals and potential domestic terrorists. Who are these dangerous home grown characters? Are they Americans of Islamic background or al-Qaida sympathizers? Could they be illegal aliens who entered our country because of porous border security? No, Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano spelled out Obama’s concerns and identified them as citizens who possess the following dangerous backgrounds and traits.
They are American military veterans who sacrificed and served our country with honor and distinction in time of war. They are citizens who abide by the Constitution’s right to possess legal firearms. Many of these potentially dangerous people follow various religious tenets and believe killing innocent babies is criminal. Others stubbornly claim marriage should be between a man and woman. Quite a few of the miss-guided consider illegal aliens and those who hire them criminals. Some of the worst cling to the belief that English should be our national language.
And, to think before this clarification, we were worried about al-Qaida and captured enemy combatants. Now, we can all sleep better knowing Mr. Obama will insure these formerly dangerous souls will be treated with compassion and permitted uninterrupted sleep and eventual freedom. That’s “change we can believe in”.
