Today is September 11th, and in order to truly honor the memory of those who died at the hands of those terrorist goat-f***ers in Al-Quaida, this writer will forego the usual platitudes, and instead point a big finger at the “Republicans” who sat back and let it happen; and then used those thousands of deaths to further their political ends whilst padding their offshore bank accounts. Think that is inappropriate, nasty, partisan, or lese-majeste? Gentle Reader, you ain’t heard nothing yet.

The 9/11 Commission report said that the Bushistas ignored the threat until after the attacks had occurred. And then, of course, they used the deaths of our fellow citizens to launch a phony war in Iraq and make themselves multi- millionaires. It’s all public record, click the links if you don’t believe it.

In stark contrast to the incompetence, malfeasance, and obfuscation of the “Republicans” stands President Obama. People told him about an imminent terrorist threat, and he quickly got started kicking their mass-murdering asses. And he told the country exactly what he was gonna do: bomb, shoot, and generally kill all of the Shaitan-worshipping thugs in ISIS. That, friends, is how you respond to an attack. Openly, firmly, and honestly.

There are still fools around the world who think the Prexy is weak, indecisive, or naive. To those idiots, we present four words:
Osama
Bin
Laden’s
Dead.
He died because Obama had the smarts and the testicular fortitude to pursue the mutt and kill his ass. The Bushies didn’t care enough to catch the motherf***er, which helped Al-Quaida grow stronger and prosper by showing the world that America would not punish those who attack us. But the Dems in the White House DID care, justice WAS rendered, and today Al-Quaida is a shattered remnant of the jihadi collossus it once was. Punishing criminals works a lot better than rewarding them.

We can best honor the victims of crimes by rendering justice on the criminals, and preventing future crimes. To the first point, not all of the criminals of 9/11 have been brought to justice yet, but Obama has made a good start. And to the second, he is doing things differently than his predecessor, thus helping to prevent a recurrence of 9/11.

Not to say that Obama’s actions are without risk. They carry enormous potential for blowback and unintended consequences. But doing nothing failed in 2001, and failed earlier this year as well. Terrorists will commit acts of terror whether men of good will do nothing, or do something. It’s what terrorists do. At least killing them, taking their money, and destroying their assets slows them down. (Again, see what has happened to Al-Quaida since PBO took office.)

The Bushies have the blood of innocents on their hands and in their wallets. Never forget, Gentle Reader. Because if we forget, it’ll happen again. Good luck to President Obama and all the brave people who fight for us every day. And bad cess to those who attack us, abandon us, and use tragedy to manipulate us.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

As has been writ before, Mister Blunt and Cranky does not like Theocracies. His ancestors fled two of them to get here, where (among other things), there would be no government sponsorship of religion. And a few years later, when the government’s founding documents were written, they expressly forbade any state sponsorship of any variety of sky pilotry. Whew. Finally, safe to worship (or not) in any manner we choose.

Today, a load of Christians (mostly from Johnny-come-lately denominations) are working to undermine the law of the land, as laid down in clear, unambiguous language by the Founders. Other term for these activities include “sedition”, “treason”, and “crooked”. The people who promote these activities are then, seditious, treasonous, lying, cheats. They are also stupid f***s who apparently¬† cannot read history books.

Other notable societies who thought they enjoyed  the endorsement of God (by whatever name): Crusaders, Ancient Egypt and Babylon, Kings Solomon and David, the Nazis and the Russian Empire, to name but a very few.

None of these nations/states/empires are recalled for their piety. Rather, they are remembered for the atrocities and crimes they committed, and the horrible, fiery, bloody manners in which they collapsed.

So as you go to church, remember your history. And please, don’t try to tell the rest of how to worship: there is nowhere left to run, and we will have to make a stand right here. And that would pretty well destroy the nation that promised us freedom of worship.

Mr. B & C

P.S. But then, the same people who propose to limit our religious freedoms also propose the unilateral abrogation of other aspects of the social contract, so it should not surprise us that they have no respect for law or existing agreements. More on that during the week.
