Unfortunately these days, law enforcement deaths have been happening all-too-frequently. In the past 24 hours alone, 11 officer have been killed. In 2010, line-of-duty deaths rose 40% from 2009 statistics, and 2011 is getting off to a rocky start. I am praying for all of our law enforcement officers out there, as well as our first responders, firefighters, and anyone else who runs to the face of danger while the rest of us are running from it.
Glenn, I agree with you that we should find out how to donate to donate to local LOD death funds to help support the families and children of the fallen. God knows America owes her public safety professionals every bit of gratitude we can muster. And we must forever shun those violent extremists, left or right, communist or anarchists, who still target LEOs (or as they still call them “pigs,” which is totally disgraceful).
If you do nothing else this weekend and this upcoming week (hell, for the rest of your lives while you’re still standing), please see how you can help with families of fallen officers, and as important, when you see an officer, make a concerted effort to shake their hands, tell them how much you appreciate them, and implore them to be sure and wear their vests.
If anybody wants to know why Herman Cain should run for the GOP candidate for President in 2012, just Google his name. THE Herman Cain is a superstar in business and a common-sense thinker. He leads his own “Intelligent Thinkers Movement,” a.k.a. “H-I-T-M” a.k.a. “Hit ‘em, Herman!”
In this insane political environment in which we find ourselves after the horrible tragedy in Tucson last Saturday, we have renewed calls from various officials, pundits, journalists, and even lawmakers floating ludicrous proposals to ‘tone down the rhetoric,’ ‘tamp down the vitriol,’ and change the political climate; all by creating new laws and regulations regarding speech, certain words in general, and, yes, even symbols.
So I’ve taken the time to give them some example of this “vitriolic rhetoric” and how they’re used in our everyday conversations, so the new Speech Police will be able to more easily recognize these inflammatory terms and phrases when they’re encountered.
Yes, this list is ridiculously long, but the wailing and gnashing of teeth, sweating of brow, and fretting over such terms and phrases is just as ridiculous; not necessarily in length but in breadth of insanity.
So, here we go. These are the things that we may no longer be able to say, and phrases we may no longer be able to use (in print or orally) once the Speech Police have gotten their way.
Joe was one of the heroes who held douchebag Jared Loughner down while awaiting the arrival of the police. And guess what else? Joe is a registered gun ower and carrier, and as he ran out of the Safeway, he heard all the people screaming “SHOOTER! SHOOTER!” He first thought about shooting him with his (lawfully-carried) gun, but when he saw the dirtbag was being held down already, he realized no lethal force was necessary at that point, and that he could contain the prick until the cops came.
Joe Zamudio is a TRUE HERO and a true patriot! He is an American who did what he felt necessary, and is a legal gun-owner who carries, but when the decision time came, he knew he didn’t need to use his weapon. THAT, my friends, is what a responsible gun owner and carrier is like. I wonder how soon it will be before the wussy Sheriff will come after him because he had a GUN that day?
