that you'll reach it, but you can surely try!) Go ahead and whine
your terrorist whine and chant your terrorist litany 'If you can
not see my point then feel my pain'. This concept is alien
to Americans. We live in a country where we don't have to see
your point, but you are free to have one. We don't have to listen
to your speech, but you're free to say one. Don't know
where you got the strange idea that everyone has to agree with
you. We don't agree with each other in this country; almost
as a matter of pride. We're a collection of guys that don't
agree called States. We united these individual states to protect
from tyranny in the world; another idea that we may up on the spot.
make it up as you go when it's your country, if you're free enough. Yeah,
we're fat, sloppy, easy-going goofs most of the time. That's an
unfortunate image to project to the world, but it comes from feeling
free and easy about the world that we live in. It's unfortunate too,
because people start to forget that when you attack Americans, they
tend to fight like cornered badgers. The first we knew
of the War of 1812 was when England burned Washington D.C. to the
ground. Didn't turn out like England thought it was going to
and it's not going to turn out like you think either.
||Sorry, but you're
not the first bully on our shores, just the most recent. No
Marquis of Queensbury rules for Americans either. We were the First
and so far the only country in the world to use nuclear weapons in
anger. Horrific idea nowadays? News for you bucko, it was back
then too, but we used it anyway! Only had two of them
in the whole world and we used 'em both. Grampa Jones worked on the
|Told me once that right up until
they threw the switch, the physicists were still arguing over whether
the Uranium alone would fission or whether it would start a fissioning
chain reaction that would eat up everything! But they threw
the switch anyway, because we had a War to win. Does that tell you
something about American resolve?
So who just declared
war on us? It would be nice to point to some real estate, like
the good old days. Unfortunately, we're probably at war with
random camps in far-flung places who think they're safe. Just like
the Barbary Pirates did, IIRC. Better start sleeping with one eye
There's a spirit
that tends to take over people who come to this country, looking
for opportunity, looking for liberty, looking for freedom. Even
if they misuse it. The Marielistas that Castro emptied out of his
prisons were overjoyed to find out how much freedom there was.
First thing that they did when they hit our shores was to run out and buy
guns. The ones that didn't end up dead ended up in prisons
again. It was a big PITA then (especially in south Florida),
but you're only the newest PITA, not the first.
You guys seem
to be incapable of understanding that we don't live in America; America
lives in us! American Spirit is what it's called and killing
a few of thousand us, or a few million of us won't change it. Most
of the time, it's a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of spirit, until we're
crossed in a cowardly manner. Then it becomes an entirely different
kind of spirit.
Wait until you
see what we can do with that spirit this time.
Sleep tight, if
you can. We're coming.
