I support the event that was held on Sunday by Pam Geller. While it is uncomfortable to support the mocking of a religion, it is sometimes necessary to push the envelope and openly mock Islam or Mohammed. Some of the freedoms we have here must be exercised lest the populace allow more “creeping Sharia” to slowly take over. If there is no pushback to the tenents of Islam, if we allow the State to start limiting this type of speech, then we are allowing this very restrictive religion to take over. Soon, I suspect some idiot will try to pass a law that calls this hate speech and imposes limits. Then what? Will we allow the adherents of Islam to restrict our rights?
It may not be viewed as wise, but it is sometimes necessary to push back against a religion that would kill those who mock it. Pamela Geller is drawing a red line. She might be drawing it with her own blood. She is already under constant guard and now there are those who have asked that she be killed because of her actions. She was in the company of others with the same target drawn on their backs.
The better question should be “Is it OK to put a hit out on someone who insults your religion?”. According to what I have read, if you convert away from Islam, you are subject to death also. Do we allow Islam to condemn Pam Geller, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the cartoonist/artists who displayed the depictions of Mohammad, the School District that rented the hall, or me for writing my support for the event? Sometimes we must take a stand and do something provocative that challenges our usual way of thinking. It would be nice if it weren’t necessary, but it is. In the last 6 months, two bloggers critical of Islam have been killed by radical Islamists in this world. If on Sunday, a cop hadn’t been such a good shot, there may have been a lot more killing in the name of Mohammad.
Here is one of the cartoons/depictions from the Sunday event by A. F. Branco, a brilliant cartoonist:

Can’t call them thugs unless you are black. Thug now equates to black.
The youth that got out of their schools last Monday and marauded through the business district, looting, stealing and taunting a police force that was standing down. It wasn’t too long before a Democrat pundit told us this was because of cutbacks, including cutbacks to HeadStart.
So let’s call them what they are – Head Start Graduates.
A boondoggle that produces no good results. Poor money on it and stand back. Don’t put out the fires or arrest the looters, just apply more tax dollars borrowed from our grandchildren, and apply.

Obama has threatened to veto any bill that comes to his desk that imposes more sanctions on Iran. He certainly can stand up to the Republican controlled congress. He is all hardline on them. Iran doesn’t live up to its side of the bargain re: their nuclear bomb building program. Obama lets them miss deadlines. He extends their negotiations for months on end. They keep working on a bomb and Obama won’t hold them accountable.
Here is my suggestion:
Let congress pass harder sanctions. Sign that bill. Then when the Ayatollah has a fit, send Sec. of State John Kerry and a pop star over to Tehran to sing to him. If James Taylor isn’t available, perhaps Yusuf Islam a.k.a.Cat Stevens could sing Peace Train while holding up the fatwa on Salman Rushdie. John Kerry could kiss the Ayatollah and peace would reign in the world.

When the wave of illegal immigrants surged in late May, the Obama apologist talking heads began the drumbeat. They want Obama to be able to have it both ways.
Last week, I began to hear from several of the pundits that this was really no different that what has been happening for several years. So which is it? Is the surge the same as it has been? Massive amounts of women and children (up to age 18) surrendering to Border Patrol to be warehoused all over the country because of violence at home or is it the other constant assertion of Obama and DHS – The border is more secure than it has ever been. It can’t be both. Of course, the surge is new, precipitated by Obama’s Dream Act by fiat and bad information going out through the grapevine. Denying the surge is stupid just as calling the border secure has been a lie from the beginning.
The numbers and the pictures don’t lie. Obama does.

Katy Perry has a video that offends Islam and Mohammed. I hope Sec. of State John Kerry has beefed up the security of consulates/embassies in the Muslim world. And I hope someone has issued an arrest warrant to the video producer/director/costume designer so this won’t result in the death of another Ambassador.

Yesterday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Obama’s hatchet man for the military, announced drastic cuts in our armed forces. The proposal would cut our military to levels not seen since before WW2. So now, military families will see cuts in their benefits, and will be subject to wholesale layoffs in a high unemployment “recovery”. This will weaken the military at a time when the world is ever more dangerous. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are all looking at this de-facto surrender.
Also, yesterday, Jesse Watters tracked down the San Diego surfer dude that was featured in a Fox News special last year on the subject of food stamps. This able-bodied 29-year-old was receiving food stamps and using them to buy lobster as needed While interview last night, his drug riddled mind clings to the hope of a being a rock and roll star rather than growing up. Please note that while the interview was going on, he was smoking regular cigarettes.
The upshot of all this is Obama wants to cut the military but not the benefits for the deluded surfer who lives better on this perk he is handed by Uncle Sam courtesy of hard-working people. Here is the message from Obama. Sign up to defend our country against its enemies, get laid off. Sign up to surf all day, eat lobster on the taxpayer so you have enough left over to buy cigarettes, no problem, no cuts. Further last week, Obama raised minimum wage to 10.10 (once again courtesy of the tax payer) so the people working in the mess hall, dishing up the food to our nations soldiers, is being paid more that those soldiers. Message to military men – leave the military and get a job surfing on welfare or slinging hash and you will do better.
Jesse Watters asked Surfer Dude about our national debt. The surfer dude had no clue. Neither does Obama.
