"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Calling Down the Thunder

"You called down the thunder, well now you got it! You see that? It says United States Marshall. I see a red sash, I kill the man wearin' it. So run you kerr. Tell all the other kerr's the law's comin! You tell 'em I'm comin', and hell's comin' with me, you hear...HELL'S COMIN' WITH ME!!" -- Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp, Tombstone

Anyone who doesn't get chills from that scene in the movie Tombstone, isn't playing with a full deck. I can't help but think of the United States as a Marshall in the wild west atmosphere of our free world, where terrorists threaten civility. On 9/11 they called down the thunder, and we've hit back hard, consistently, and without hesitation ever since. Much to the consternation of lesser nations who would allow terror to be dealt with in mock courts after the fact, we have demonstrated leadership as a nation. Israel is doing the same thing with Hamas. Terrorists shot rockets into Israel, and they called down the thunder. Gaza residents are basically held hostage by their own people. Hamas starts the fight, tells Israel to bring it on, when they get their butts handed to them, they call for a public outcry. We see protests in New York, London, and elsewhere from Palestinians calling to end the plight of the people.*

*Note: ending the plight of the Palestinians can only be accomplished by killing all Jews, and ending the state of Israel, according to these "peace"ful protestors. Sphere: Related Content

I believe in the 1st Amendment. Say whatever you want. If you're a moron, I may point that out...if I have time. :P
