So I guess it's ok for someone from Westboro "Baptist" to force a gay baker to bake a cake with one of their infamous sayings about God's supposed feelings about "gays"? Or an avid hunter join the Sierra club? Or a black minister open his church to a Klan rally? It's called freedom of association. When you compel someone else to go against their conscience or even their preference, it's a form of slavery and tyranny. And don't think that your rights will be held sacrosanct in perpetuity, either. Eventually, some other Party member will come along and declare the current Truth that contradicts your pet cause. Just ask Robespierre, or half the Soviet polity of the 20th century. You should be fighting to preserve other's rights, not cutting their throats today when it'll be your head on the chopping block tomorrow. But, let's be honest here. It's really about forcing others to validate your choices in life, and no amount of "celebration" will ever be enough. Plus, some of us are actually willing to put in jeopardy our lives, fortunes and sacred honor for the cause of liberty. You might want to ask yourself if you're willing to do the same for your brand of creeping fascism.
Maybe you could Occupy Evil! Yeah, that'll work! I'll start a fundraiser for plane tickets to Syria if you promise to get 1,000 of your closest friends to go with you...
Actually, the only war we truly lost militarily was in 1812. But don't let history get in the way of a narrative that makes you feel good. (And no, Vietnam doesn't count. An estimated 1,000,000 eNemy casualties vs. our rate doesn't count as a Communist (military) victory).
These silly generals really should know when to defer to the superior wisdom and experience of someone smarter than them. I mean, I'll bet they don't know the profound lessons that Tiger Jr. has learned about leadership and combat from his time well spent on that green, well-manicured field of combat! That's why we're in the mess we're in today. And oh yeah, it's Bush's fault!
Hey, it's ok. You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs- either from Lenin, Robespierre or both. Either way, two un-acknowledged but once celebrated heroes of the left. Funny how you can break so many eggs and still not come up with a decent omelette. But hey, let's castigate the eggs when thy object to being broken! Translation: it doesn't matter how many lives are destroyed in the service of ushering in a liberal fantasy utopia, you're still a racist!
“In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”-C. S. Lewis, who, by the way, was an infantryman in WW I. Sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind...

Obama Is Carter, Not Reagan

POTUS needs to draw on an old-fashioned definition of manhood, something his single mom, STANLEY probably never taught him. When the going gets tough the tough pull up their mom jeans and either whine to their mommies about how mean the world is to her special little snowflake or to a sycophantic media that how dare anyone belittles THE ONE, the reason for all history and reality. We should really just abolish freedom to prevent these kinds of tragedies... From our first President who had on his resume, Commander in Chief by literally leading his troops from the front and physically putting his life on the line to President Leads From Behind, maybe there's some sort of poetic, historical justice if Obama, somehow, brings up the rear of our history by being the last President we choose. If that's the case then we truly are the lesser sons of greater sires...
The same way government is reasonably expected to protect handicapped adults from being murdered, without fearing tyranny from that "slippery slope." I dunno, I guess some things are worth the risk. Human life is human life. Nice try!
"Your love..." With all due respect to the families, he probably meant this for some Islamist group. I worked in field artillery so my love would consist of 155mm. HEDP shells... Again, with respect to the families, I'm sure the terrorists are much more terrified of rebuilt lives than bunker busting bombs messing up their little parties where they're abusing more men, women, and children who can't fight back.
