I don't know about you, but if I were a terrorist, I would be shaking in my boots. I was enjoying myself during the holidays knowing that the legislative branch was on vacation and the president and his family were out of the lower forty eight, when another Islamic terrorist decides to set his pants on fire while riding on a commercial airliner. I think sentence two (see above) describes part of the problem we have in this country. "An American politician from the Democratic Party...." and a lawyer to boot. Just looking at her I get that same warm fuzzy feeling I had when Janet Reno was in charge of calling the shots at Waco.
This guy was allegedly on a watch list, but not on the no fly list. If I was in charge (never going to happen), I would have everyone in this country and everyone approaching this country who was Muslim and had a name that is recognizable as such on a watch list, and a no fly list. After the mule is out of the stall, we put more air marshals on the planes and check all the Anglo-American males very carefully so as not to offend anyone else who might complain to the ACLU. I challenge you to look at Janet Napolitano's bio and tell me what experience she has that might qualify her to make critical law enforcement decisions. Oh, how silly of me. I forgot, her boss doesn't have any experience either. At least she is confirmed as an "American politician from the Democratic Party...."
What is the matter with us? Don't we have a single Senator with the guts to ask some serious questions? I watched Max Baucus, Democrat Senator from Montana, drunk on the Senate floor debating a Republican Senator from Mississippi on health care reform. Why didn't someone call the police and have him arrested for public Intoxication? Any other government employee showing up for work toasted would be facing an investigation and possible firing. I think they are all drunk with power and so intent on keeping it they won't challenge each other for fear of political reprisals.
I intend to make sure I vote for the best "new" candidates I can find in the 2010 election. The bills they are considering are illegal and unconstitutional but not one politician from either party has challenged on this basis. Only 8% of the political appointees in the Obama Administration have any "real life" work experience (and that includes this president).
The following are my list of things that shouldn't be considered as qualifiers for anything when applying for any job:
B. Sexual Orientation
D. Color of skin
These also should't be considered when assigning "special rights" to any group. In fact, "special rights" are not constitutional.
Here are some factors to be considered:
A. Moral character
B. Experience in the job for which you are applying
C. Education (Ivy league should be given no special preference.)
D. High work ethic
I believe these would be more beneficial to the country's revival.
Remember, it was this allegedly highly qualified ex-governor who labeled disgruntled American soldiers returning from battle as potential terrorists threats. I imagine she further qualified that in her apologies to Vets as intended only for those with ties to the conservatives in our heartland.
I think a letter of resignation would be in order Janet before we have anymore incidents on your watch. Get someone other than a lawyer to handle the leadership of all our law enforcement activities at the federal level. Preferably someone with years of "street experience" in handling law enforcement actions.
What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.
